    Allow Global administrator or site collection administrators to know the details of notifications which are set in SharePoint Online


    ■Description(内容):
    現時点の動作では SharePoint Online にて設定した通知の詳細を知ることができません。
    GUI 上の動作、PnP コマンドを実行しても他のユーザーが設定した通知の内容は全体管理者、サイト コレクションの管理者であっても確認することができない動作となっております。
    全体管理者、サイト コレクションの管理者はサイト全体の情報を管理しているため機能の拡張を要望します。

  2. Implement a feature that auto-backup/restore items in SharePoint Online

    We would like you to implement a feature that can automatically back-up all items in SharePoint Online and restore a specific item at will.
    Currently, you can restore a file individually in Library, but it is not necessarily for all items (e.g. Web parts).

    ■Title(件名):
    Office ファイルを Online で使用した際の自動保存について
    Allow us to control on or off for auto save on Office Online


    ■Description(内容):
    Office ファイルを Online で使用した際には、編集した内容が自動で保存される動作となります。
    そのため、操作を誤ってしまった際にも保存されてしまう動作となるため、Office ファイルを Online で使用した際に
    自動保存の機能を "オン"、"オフ" に切り替えができる機能の実装を要望いたします。

    If we use Office files on Online, any editing will be saved automatically. This function is very helpful, but auto save feature will work even though we edit the file mistakenly.

    For improvement usability, we would like you to expand the auto save feature that allow users to choose on or off for this feature.

  8. Display access approvers of sites that you are requesting access to

    It would be helpful to see who has the authority to give access to a SharePoint site when you don't have access to that site. Right now, all I can do is request access but I have no idea how to escalate or reach out to the approver if they don't act on that access request.

    Add a way to consistently search logs for site collections which include underbars


    ■Description(内容):
    2020 年 9 月始めごろにアンダーバーが含まれるサイト コレクションが検索できず、アンダーバーをスペースに置き換えることで検索が可能となりました。その後まもなく、アンダーバーを含んだ状態で検索が可能となり、逆にスペースでは検索ができなくなりました。
    その後、9 月 19 日 に監査ログを検索できない事象が発生し、検索が可能となった後は再度アンダーバーが含まれるサイト コレクションが検索できず、アンダーバーをスペースに置き換えると検索ができる動作となった。
    一貫した動作になるように改善を希望します。

    From around the start of September 2020, we have not been able to search for site collections with underbars in them but can do so by replacing the underbars with spaces. Soon after it became possible to search using underbars, but conversely it became impossible to search using spaces.
    After that, on the 19th September we found we could not search the logs, then after we became able…

    適宜必要な情報共有を SharePoint Online ​で行っているが、ニュース Web パーツの追加機能で、ページを閲覧していないユーザーを把握するための仕組みを取り入れてほしい。

    この機能があれば、情報共有する必要がある担当社員がいた際に、だれが必要な情報を見ていないか共有の状況を把握でき、IMなどでコミュニケーションする際も、ひと手間減らせると思うので、実装を希望します。
    We share necessary information as needed with SharePoint Online, but we hope a mechanism will be added as an additional feature of the News Web Part to show which users are not browsing the page.

    If there is such a feature, when there is an employee in charge who needs to share information, the employee can grasp who is not looking at the necessary information and…

    現在、Office 365 グループの予定表は一つしか持てないため​、同一のアクセス権限で複数の予定表を使い分けて運用したい場合、同じアクセス権限で複数の Office 365 グループを作成することになり大変面倒になる。

    Currently there is only 1 calendar for Office 365 groups, so if a user wants to use multiple calendars seperately with the same access permissions, multiple Office 365 groups need to be created with the same access permissions which is extremely troublesome.
    Please implement a feature to link the SharePoint Calendar app with Office 365 groups Calendar.

  12. Change site template after intial creation (Turn Team Site into Communication Site and vice versa)

    As site owner I want to turn a Team Site into a Communication Site and the other way round after initial creation, so I can correct the site setup in case of mistake.

    Background:
    I have created a Site using "Team site" template and invested a lot of time setting up pages with web parts and text. Finally I found out that a Communication site had been the better option and I would like to change it now.

    We would like to acquire the SharePoint Admin Center operation logs in the Office 365 audit log feature.
    We previously disabled Office 365 Video on the SharePoint admin center [Settings] but it turned out that the setting had been turned back on enable. There are some possibilities such as Office 365…

    Office 365 監査ログ検索画面にて、SharePoint Online の URL を指定して検索した際、URL に特殊文字が含まれている場合に正しい検索結果が表示されません。 特殊文字をスペースに変換することで正しい検索結果を得ることが出来ますが、 SharePoint Online のサイト作成時に URL 内に利用できる特殊文字については、 Office 365 監査ログの検索時にも利用ができるように機能の改善を希望いたします。

  15. Add an unread function

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    未既読機能の追加について
    Add an unread function


    ■Description(内容):
    サイトに投稿された記事やニュースについて、未既読が判別できるようにしたいです。
    重要な周知をユーザーが見落とさないよう、ユーザー自身が一覧で確認できるような機能の追加を希望します。
    現状の機能の中で未既読を判別する場合、"いいね" をつけることは出来ますが、各記事を開く必要があるため、未既読の判別には手間が多く使いにくい状況です。

    For news posts on a site, make it possible to see which posts are unread.
    Such a function, allowing users to see a list of posts they haven’t read, would prevent them from missing important notices, so please add it.
    Currently, to identify what has and has not been read, it’s possible to use the “like” function, but this makes it necessary to open up each article, which makes this difficult to use for identifying unread posts.

    Method for users with their language set to the site secondary language to overwrite changes to site names


    ■Description(内容):
    サイトの既定の言語が英語で第二言語が日本語の場合、日本語のユーザーがサイト名を変更しても他の言語のユーザーには反映されません。

    If a site’s default language is English and its secondary language is Japanese, if a user whose language is set to Japanese edits the site name, the change does not appear for users with their language set differently.
    If overwriting translations is enabled in the site settings, changes made by users on the default language will overwrite what is seen by users on other languages, but if changes are made in the secondary…

    I want to be able to see comments and the number of likes etc. from the social bar at the bottom of site pages all at once.
    Currently you need to access each page individually, which takes extra work.
    If it was possible to see all the information for each site at once, it would be easier to manage, so please make this possible.
