    Batch setting of the amount of version history retained in OneDrive for Business and SharePoint Online


    ■Description(内容):

    When the amount of version histories stored in OneDrive for Business or SharePoint Online needs to be changed, it is currently set on a site or user basis.

  3. Created sharing links should respect permission inheritance settings and link (permission) should be visible in UI

    The Share feature apparently creates a new security principal that overrides the classic SharePoint permission model. These security principals neither can be seen, nor broken on lower levels in the hierarchy. This makes the tracking of who has permission to what at any given time impossible. (Technically it is possible, but the logic would be throttled by the SPO service.) The issue appears for internal, guest and anonymous links as well.

    We need a way to be able to keep track of what is shared on what level. (The announced feature of sharing report is not providing the necessary information.)…

  8. 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…

  10. SharePoint Recycle Bin Deleted By Column

    Please bring back the column for Deleted By in the recyclebin for SharePoint Online. I have users who keep deleting files and we cannot easily determine who is doing so at this time.

  11. About default values when deploying the SharePoint auto-digest email function from MC215356

    MC215356 SharePoint 自動ダイジェスト電子メールの機能展開時の既定値について
    About default values when deploying the SharePoint auto-digest email function from MC215356


    ■Description(内容):
    現在、不特定の SharePoint サイトで "ニュース" 機能を利用し、一部ユーザーにおいては自由に SharePoint サイトを作成できるようにしている。
    本機能が適用された場合、テスト投稿などでもメール通知が届くことが予想され、広範囲のユーザーに対して影響が出ることが考えられる。
    テナント運用により、必須ではない機能であるため、機能展開時の既定値を無効にできる機能が実装されることが望ましい。

    Currently, we are allowing a set of users to freely create SharePoint sites using the “News” function in some cases.
    If this function is applied, we expect that test posts etc. will cause these notification mails to be delivered, and that will affect a wide range of users.
    Depending on tenant-specific applications, this function may not be needed, so please allow us to enable/disable this by default when deploying it.

  13. Possibility to remove "open in explorer" option

    How to remove the "open in explorer" option available with Internet Explorer browser for the document library.

    I set up right management in order to offer limited access to .pdf documents in a library. Download in local and print are not proposed when browser display a document. But the "open in explorer" option by-pass this restrictions and offer the possibility for any users to get a copy of the documents.

    Could we add the possibility to allow or not this option ?

  14. External Users Should not need a Microsoft account to access library and sites

    As it stands right now external users who don't have a Microsoft account associated with their email address can access a folder or a file in a document library with just simple authentication flow. However, for sites and libraries the person has to have a Microsoft account associated with their email address to be able to share the content. This causes a lot of inconvenience to our users as they cannot ask their clients to create Microsoft accounts just to access the data.
    Hope that Microsoft aims to make external access to the library and state redundant.

  18. 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?

    When SharePoint sites are linked to private channels and get included in Office 365 security/compliance retention policies the private channels cannot be deleted. Teams in those private channels cannot be deleted either.
    I hope a change will be implemented so that teams can be deleted even when the SharePoint site is included in retention policies.
