  1. A feature to restrict download of data from Pictures Library

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    画像ライブラリのデータのダウンロードを禁止する機能について
    A feature to restrict download of data from Pictures Library


    ■Description(内容):
    個人の顔写真などプライバシーなデータを扱うにあたり、画像ライブラリでサムネイルのみ表示したいが、詳細画面を表示できてしまうとダウンロードが行えてしまうため、詳細画面の表示をさせない設定や、サムネイル表示のみとする設定が可能な機能を提供してほしい​
    We want to display thumbnails only in Pictures Library as we are handling private data such as personal photos, but as download can be done when the details screen is displayed, we hope that a feature can be provided to not display the details screen or a setting to only display thumbnails.

  2. Option for each document library to only allow uploads which have file names containing specific letters

    ■Title(件名):
    ドキュメント ライブラリごとにファイル名に特定の文字が含まれているファイルのみアップロードを許可する機能の追加を希望します。
    Option for each document library to only allow uploads which have file names containing specific letters


    ■Description(内容):
    "ライブラリ A 社用" "ライブラリ B 社用" という 2 つのドキュメント ライブラリを作成した際、"ライブラリ A 社用" ではファイル名に "A 社" が、"ライブラリ B 社用" ではファイル名に "B 社" が含まれているファイルのみアップロードを許可するという機能の追加を希望します。

    背景としては、ドキュメント ライブラリ側でファイル名に特定の文字が含まれているファイルのみアップロードを許可することで、複数の客先に対し同時進行で書類を作成する際、異なる客先の書類の混在を避けることができると考えているためです。

    If you create two document libraries, “Library for company A” and “Library for company B”, we would like an option where we could only allow files with “company A” in the name to be uploaded to “Library for company A”, and files with “company B” in the name to be uploaded to “Library…

  3. I want to use the notification function for the team at any time

    現在、ファイルのアップロード時にのみチームに通知機能を利用することが可能である。
    ファイルの新規作成や編集時などにもチームに通知機能を利用できるようにに機能の拡充を希望します。

    Currently, it is possible to use the notification function to the team only when uploading a file.
    We would like to expand the function so that the team can use the notification function even when creating or editing a new file.

  4. Hide path in shared folders

    I have folders in a document library that I share with clients and it would be fantastic if they couldn’t see the full path breadcrumbs in the top left.

  5. Open all Library Documents in Read-only Mode by Default

    It's critical to have an easy ability to configure libraries to have documents open in read-only mode by default. The SP Online defaults make it very easy for content to be changed by mistake.

    I have clients where they share documents for colleagues to just view, the docs open in edit mode by default, and changes are made by mistake because of auto-save. The clients are very frustrated with SharePoint Online as a result.

    It should not be assumed that everyone with edit/contribute access to a library needs to edit a document they receive via a link or when they…

    Regarding the behaviour of opening Office files in Classic UI

    ライブラリの設定で、"ブラウザーで開くドキュメント設定" を "クライアント アプリケーションで開く " にした場合でも、Office ファイルをクリックした際に Gogole Chrome、FireFox、 Chromium ベースの新しい Edge のブラウザー利用時に Office Online で開く動作になる。
    "クライアント アプリケーションで開く "​ の機能が適用されるように機能改善を希望します。
    Even when "Settings for opening documents in browser" in library settings is set to "Open using client application", when we click on Office files the files will be opened using Office Online if Google Chrome, Firefox or the new Chromium-based Edge browsers are being used.
    Please improve this so that the "Open using client application" setting can be applied.

  9. Team site Documents library "Shared by us" view

    Just as there is a "Shared with us" view in the Team site Documents library there should be a "Shared by us" view to display all the files and folders that have been Shared.

    If columns are added into SharePoint Online site document libraries and lists, everything will be reflected together in the bottom folders as well, and only libraries and lists can be set for the "Show View" value, thus we hope that a feature to display the added columns by hierarchy will be added.

    SharePoint Online サイトのドキュメント ライブラリにおけるバージョン履歴の保持数は 100~50000 まで変更することが可能だが、バージョン履歴の保持は端末の容量にも影響するため、保持数を 100 以下にも設定できるように機能を拡大してほしい。
    It is possible to change the number of previous versions retained in the Document Library between 100 and 50000 on SharePoint Online sites. Since the version history also affects the storage of the machine in use, I want the functionality to be expanded so that I can set the retention number to less than 100 or less.

  17. Drag and drop folders in browser for SharePoint 2016

    Our state organization has upgraded SharePoint from SharePoint 2010 to SharePoint 2016. This upgrade has resulted in a functionality loss of being able to drag and drop folders to libraries in browser. We are requesting that Microsoft restore the drag drop folder functionality in SharePoint 2016 that was lost. This loss has had an adverse impact to our business users.

  18. Upload document revision - Retain link

    Please enable a feature to upload a new revision / replace a document in a SharePoint / OneDrive library to a new version without losing existing links to it.

    I am streamlining the companies document library, currently we have multiple versions of the same document uploaded to various websites and in a library for internal use. I wish to create one true source to reduce maintenance errors when applying updates. I wish to use a cloud service to host the library, have it accessible through a mobile app and use links to the documents on ours and 3rd party websites.

    In Custom List, we can set the “Item-level Permissions” in [List settings] – [Advanced settings] to make it so that only the user who created the item can edit it. However, in Document and Page libraries, such a setting does not exist, and it is not possible to make a setting where only the user who created the item can edit it. Therefore, I would request for better…

  20. Prevent users from removing retention label on SharePoint documents

    As of right now, members of a SharePoint site are capable of removing the retention label applied to a file/folder.

    It would be great to have a role within the Edit permission that prevents users from adding/editing/removing labels on SharePoint documents.

    Example: The administrator applied a retention tag on a document in which all files has to remain for 7 years. A user simply changes the retention tag to none and delete it. This will cause trouble.
