  1. Give us control or at least visibility of the Content Type Hub Syndication Timer Job in SPO

    The syndication of Content Types using the Content Type Hub is a frustrating experience as you cannot tell when the Content Type will actually be available in sites that are connected to the Hub. At present there is no visibility of when the syndication timer will run or a way of forcing / changing the frequency. Once published it could be 15mins, 4 hours or worse before the Content Type appears in the consuming site.

    This idea is to give users control or at least visibility of the Content Type Hub Syndication Timer Job in SPO.

  2. Create modern sites within Sharepoint site collection

    When Sharepoint admins create modern Team Sites using the "Create
    Site" option on this page:

    https://contosa.sharepoint.com/_layouts/15/sharepoint.aspx

    It should create the modern Team Site under the master Sharepoint site collection like a traditional Sharepoint site and allow the modern site to be customized and managed like any other Sharepoint site, including back-ups and resource management. For any existing modern Team Sites created using "Create Site" there should be an admin option in O365 for admins to move the existing orphaned modern Team Sites under the master site collection.

  3. add the setting of ”Send an email invitation” in case of the setting of right to SharePoint Online site.

    *English follows Japanese

    ■件名 : “電子メール招待状を送信する”を無効にする設定について
    ■内容:  SharePoint Online のサイトへの権限設定時の [電子メール招待状を送信する] のチェックが入ったままであると、チェックを外し忘れてしまった際に招待されたユーザーにメールが送信させたく無い場合にもされてしまうかと存じます。

    該当のチェックを既定で外れる設定があると、作業の手間が少しでも省けるため、該当のチェックを外すことが出来る設定を希望いたします。

    In case the checkbox of ”Send an email invitation” is checked at the time of setting the right to SharePoint Online site, there is a possibility that e-mails might be sent to users if unchecking would be neglected. I would say that it is helpful in avoiding some troubles if there could be a setting by default to uncheck the box. Therefore, I hope the setting to be available that could enable for me to uncheck the box.

  4. Create a SharePoint option to disable the "SHARE" button, giving people access to site.

    A Sharepoint user with Edit permissions on the company "Finance" site was only supposed to share a folder named "Invoices" that is located in a library within the Finance site. She highlighted the Invoices folder, and instead of selecting the three dots to the right and selecting Share, she clicked on the upper right-hand side of the site page and selected SHARE which shares the entire site and it's contents. Six users were sent that shared site link but only one user accessed the site. In the site are very sensitive financial records like employee salaries, owner bonuses, legal financial…

    Thanks for the feedback. It would helpful to know the specific scenarios where users aren’t able to get to the content they need.

    We’ve observed that with sites shared publicly, or sites attached to a public Office365 Group, it’s not very meaningful to see every SharePoint Site a user can access, because there could be a huge number, most of which the user isn’t interested in.

    Is the focus here more like “show me all sites I’m a member of”?

    There is one comment that says search isn’t working, please open a support ticket for that.

  6. Delete sharepoint site

    Make it easy to delete the sharepoint site - I have created MOMENTO consulting a/s , but I can't delete it!

  8. [サイトコレクション記憶域の管理] の設定

    テナントを作成した直後、SharePoint 管理センターで
    [サイトコレクション記憶域の管理] の設定が [手動]となっています。
    しかしながら、[サイト コレクション]画面を表示すると、記憶域のクォータ設定が無いなど、[自動]設定の場合の画面が表示されます。
    一度、自動にした後、手動に戻すと記憶域のクォータ設定等が表示されました。設定の切り替えなしで、デフォルトの状態が [手動] となっている場合、記憶域クォータの設定が出るようにしたいです。

  9. Export WIKI pages as PDF or Word files

    Would be great to export(download) wiki pages as PDF of Word files.

    All similar systems have that feature (Atlassian Confluence, Zendesk)

  10. DenyAddAndCustomizePages for office 365 group morden site and OneDrive for Business

    https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Turn-scripting-capabilities-on-or-off-1F2C515F-5D7E-448A-9FD7-835DA935584F?ui=en-US&rs=en-US&ad=US

    From this article, using the following powershell command we can Turn scripting capabilities on for specified site.
    Set-SPOsite <SiteURL> -DenyAddAndCustomizePages 0

    It doesn't work for group site and onedrive for business site. We can set Custom Script value to Allow users to run custom script on personal sites in SharePoint admin. All onedrive for business site will turn on it after 24 hours.

    But how to turn on for group site?

  12. Allow creation of managed path

    On prem, we use web apps and managed path to define our sites structure. I understand that we cannot have webapps online but why can't we create managed path?

    I would use it to group sites by type
    http://tenant/teams/TeamA
    http://tenant/groups/GroupA
    http://tenant/services/IT
    http://tenant/clients/000000

    It would help for search and administration.

    Thanks.

  13. More useful site usage reports

    Provide more usage reports. Specifically the number of views a list has had.

    e.g. We publish news items in a custom list but have no stats for how many people are viewing those news items. Users do not open each news article individually - they just look at the view like they'd look at a newspaper page.

  14. SharePoint access control visibility

    Access control is extremely important to my company and our customers. Currently, unless you're an Owner of a team site, you have a very limited view of who has access to what. Members can see who content has been shared with via the Share->Shared With dialog view, but this doesn't show the level of access those individuals have (read vs. write). This causes angst among our users who sometimes won't add content because they are not sure who has the ability to modify the content they add. To get around this, we have created a custom page for our team…

  15. Need to include popularity trends for a blog site

    I cannot see popularity trends on a blog site and all posted counter is zero 0.
    Even blog sites, it needs to know popularity trends and most popular items although I understood that usage reports are only available for Document Libraries and Product Catalog lists.
    Is there any chance to have this considered?

  16. Regional settings for International sites

    International projects integrate people collaborating from various locations with different cultural backgrounds AND DIFFERENT DATE FORMATS AND NUMBER FORMATS.
    Site settings link a region to a language, date & time format, number format. In Windows these settings are separated. Better.
    I need an option to select English (International = US English), ISO8601 date & time format YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM, and a number format using a dot as decimal point. This is currently impossible to find. US Military and international teams in science as well as many global organizations need these settings. It is not good to force the US date format…

  17. Organize sharepoint sites

    I'd like to be able to organize the home page of sites i'm following to put the sites I use the most at the top, and group similar sites --for instance, I have several sites that are related to Human resources work, but I only use them occasionally and would like them to put them in a folder or notebook. Instead, they are all listed separately and I have to scroll through them to get to the ones I use more frequently. If there is already a way to do this, it is NOT apparent on the way my sharepoint…

  19. Encourage sharing w groups

    We typically discourage site owners from sharing at the document level due to the increase in administrative work that it causes. We also discourage owners from inviting individuals - we suggest that inviting groups makes the work simpler. However, the interface when sharing a document doesn't encourage sharing with groups - doesn't even make it obvious that sharing with groups is possible there. Are we wrong in how we are encouraging our site owners to manage their sites? If not, can it be made more obvious that sharing with groups is the best practice?

  20. Set New Site Contents Page to be site Welcome Page

    I love the new site contents page. I think it is so good that it is the perfect page to be the home page of any Team Site. Currently this is not possible to set back-end pages to be the Welcome page of a site.

    We should be able to set the new site contents page to be the homepage of the site.
