  1. Restore "Sign in as a different user"

    This is essential and needs to be easy to find instead of hacking the URL every time you need to sign in as a different user.

  2. Permissions report - inheritance breaks

    Allow the owners of the sites to view a report of the security of their site. Start by adding a chart of the inheritance breaks of the whole site in one glance. This will become more and more important since you can use the 'Share' button on a file and break inheritance without understanding what you're doing.

  3. Side link bar

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    サイド リンク バーのリンクについて

    Side link bar


    親サイトに作成した子サイトのアプリのリンクをクリックしても、サイトのタイトル箇所やサイド リンク バーが親サイトのままとなる。遷移先のサイトのタイトルやサイド リンク バーに切り替わるようにしてほしい。

    Even when we click child site app links on a parent site, sites title and side link bar stay as a parent site, and does not get switched up to the child site as it should be. The issue have to be addressed.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  4. Show each file size at Storage Metrics

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    記憶域メトリックスのファイル サイズについて
    Show each file size at Storage Metrics


    ■Description(内容):
    現状記憶域メトリックスのファイル サイズはメタデータやバージョンなどのサイズを統合した表示となっているため、ファイル単体の容量を確認することができません。
    そのため、ファイル単体のサイズを確認するにはライブラリごとにファイル サイズ列にて確認する必要があります。

    ライブラリ単位での確認となると作業工数もかかるため、記憶域メトリックスにてファイル単体のサイズも確認できるよう機能の拡充を要望します。

    The file size displayed at Storage Metrics is a total of meta data/version etc. size, so we are not able to see each file size.

    File size is available at file size column at Libraries, but this process causes huge workload so that we would like to check each file size at Storage Mastics.

    Thank you for your consideration.

    その際、管理者が意図しないユーザーを招待不可とするため、ドメインの制御を検討している。
    その際、Outlook.jp などで Microsoft アカウントを取得いただく場合、Outlook.jp はだれでも取得できるアカウントである為、Outlook.jp のみを共有可能としても、やはり管理者が意図しない Outlook.jp ドメインの ユーザーが招待される可能性がある。
    ドメインではなく 管理者が設定した パスワードなどで共有を制御する方法を希望します。

    We try to do external sharing with user that does not own Office 365 account, for which, we originally try to restrict domain to prevent the unwanted users to be invited.

    In this case, there is a possibility some users will invite unwanted Outlook.jp domain users because Microsoft account (example: Outlook.jp) is available for all users.

    To increase security, we would like to see the feature to…

  6. Hide the sites we created in Following sites

    *English follows Japanese

    Following sites in SharePoint Online


    SharePoint ホームにアクセスした際、"フォロー中" の項目に自身がフォローしたサイト以外に、自分で作成したサイトも表示されている。[すべて表示] にアクセスすると、実際にフォローしたサイトだけが表示される動作にはなっているが、SharePoint ホームの "フォロー中" に表示されるサイトをフォローしているサイトだけに絞って表示させる機能の追加を要望します。

    By clicking All, we can see the following sites, but in SharePoint Online home page, following sites always includes the site we created as well. Hide our own sites in Following sites from SharePoint Online.

    Thank you for your consideration.

    Even we create retention policy via Office 365 Security & Compliance Center> Data governance>Retention>choose SharePoint>All, none of SharePoint sites have key icon at SharePoint admin center and we are able to delete them.

    Allow us to show all parent terms when we use term sets via navigation.


    ■Description(内容):
    現時点では用語セットをナビゲーションにてリンクとして利用し、複数の親用語と、その配下に子用語を設定した場合、子用語のリンクにアクセスした際に遷移先では同列の子用語のみリンクが表示される。
    その他の親用語に属する子用語のリンクが表示されないため、すべての親用語の表示制御が可能なように機能拡充を希望します。

    We set multiple parent term and child terms under them as term sets, then use them as Links via navigation. In this situation, if we access the child term link, we only see the links for same level child terms as we clicked.

    We would like to see the link for child terms as well which is belonging to the other parent, not only child terms sharing same parent. It would be also appreciated if we could control…

  9. Reflect the setting of “Connections from sites to Office 365 groups” to Global admin

    Reflect the setting of “Connections from sites to Office 365 groups” to Global admin


    ■Description(内容):
    SharePoint 管理センターの設定にて "サイトから Office 365 グループへの接続" の項目より "サイト コレクションの管理者がサイトを新しい Office 365 グループに接続できないようにする" を選択しても、サイト コレクションの管理者では制限がされるが、全体管理者のユーザー アカウントであれば接続が可能になる。
    紛らわしいので、全体管理者でも制限されるようにしてほしい。

    At the setting on SharePoint admin center, go to Connections from sites to Office 365 groups>choose Prevent site collection administrators from connecting sites to new Office 365 groups option, this setting available only for site admin, and Global admin account still be able to connect to the Office 365 Group.

    This behavior makes uses confused, so please reflect…

    ■Title(件名):

    SharePoint Online のライセンスがないユーザーがURL 経由で Delve にアクセスできる動作の制御
    Regarding the restriction to access Delve for users without SharePoint Online license


    ■Description(内容):
    現在、SharePoint Online のライセンスがないユーザーにおいてもURL 経由でDelveにアクセスできる動作になっていることを確認しています。運用上、ライセンスがないユーザーに Delve にアクセスできる方法があることは問題があるため制御したいのですが、その方法がない状況です。今後の運用に大きくかかわる内容であるため、1. SharePoint Online ライセンスがないユーザーにはどのような方法であれ、アクセスできないようにする。 2. 1が出来ないのであれば、アクセス制御ができる機能の追加を強く要望します。

    We realized that users without SharePoint Online license are able to access Delve via URL. In terms of the security and management, we would like to restrict those users to access Delve but there is no feature to control it.

    This is very critical issue to keep utilize the services, so that we strongly hope to have the feature below;

    1, Disable the access to Delve for any…

  12. Password Protecting pages

    Create a function password protecting specific pages of a website. Working in education you need to have places that are staff only. creating a password protection option means that you only have to create one site instead of many

  13. Upplägg/struktur/innehåll av sidans menyval

    Jag tror att det vore en bra idé att i Användarstöd Skolplattformen ha med:
    under rubriken Utbildningsöversikt uppgift om eller åtminstone länkar till samtliga utbildningar, alltså även administrativa
    under rubriken Dokument ha med en länk till de supportguider som finns
    under Fråga-Svars-bank också länka till supportguider där dessa kan stödja de ofta kortfattade svaren.
    Med vänlig hälsning / Lennart Östman

  17. Users with Edit permission should not be permitted to overwrite existing files if the "Delete" permission isn't granted.

    User with Edit permission should not be allowed to overwrite existing files if the "Delete" permission isn't granted.

    The reason for removing the "Delete" permission is so users CANNOT delete an existing file in the document library - However if I do not permit a user with "Delete" but they have "EDIT" permissions, they can overwrite an existing document using the same file name.

    This permission is essentially the same as providing the delete permission because a user can just overwrite the existing file with a NULL or BLANK file.
    SharePoint only notifies the user "You are going to overwrite…

  20. Alert before leaving unsubmitted forms

    It would be helpful if there was an alert along the lines of "are you sure you want to leave this page without submitting?" when working in the forms. I was working through the engagement support hub form and accidentally clicked on the "recycle bin" on the left of the screen and had to go back and re-do everything I'd already done
