  1. Enable admins to control the file size limit for upload

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    アップロードできるファイル サイズの制限について

    Enable admins to control the file size limit for upload


    ■Description(内容):
    現在のユーザーが SharePoint Online にアップロードできるファイル サイズは 15 GB だが、管理者でユーザーごと、またはグループごとにサイズを指定できるようにしてほしい
    例: 管理者は 15 GB までアップロード可能だが、一般ユーザーは 10 GB までしかアップロードできない、など。

    For improvement of usability and manageability, allow admins to specify the file size when users are uploading files to SharePoint Online. Currently users can upload files up to 15GB, it would be nice if we could specify the uploading file size limitation for each user/group.

    For instance, admins can upload files maximum 15GB while users can only upload up to 10GB.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  3. Provide the PowerShell cmdlet to create document libraries on Microsoft Teams

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    Microsoft Teams においてドキュメント ライブラリを作成するコマンドレッド

    Provide the PowerShell cmdlet to create document libraries on Microsoft Teams


    ■Description(内容):
    Team 作成後にまず、当該チームを作成したユーザー (チームを作成する PowerShell コマンドレットを実施したユーザー)にて wiki タブをクリックすることで、"Teams Wiki Data" というドキュメント ライブラリが作成され、他ユーザーがご利用可能になる。また、 PowerShell では "Teams Wiki Data" が作成できず、 GUI 上からの操作が必要なため要望します。

    Currently, it requires us to create “Teams Wiki Data” document library manually on GUI every time we create a Team by running the cmdlet to create a new team. Once the user who created a new team clicked a wiki tab, “Teams Wiki Data” is generated and then other users will be able to join the team.

    In order to reduce…

  5. Please add more flexibility with file syncing (offline client availability feature).

    It would be nice to allow certain permissions groups to sync files or to allow syncing of certain folders, rather than the site as a whole.

    In general, this feature tends to be very buggy and prone to user error, so it is unfortunate that the only option is to disable the feature for the entire site.

  6. Put back Open in local app after searching a document

    When in a document list, you can open the document either using the local or online version of the app.

    But if you search a document (filter it), you can only open it via the online app. The local app option is not available.

  7. Nasal Inhaler Information addition

    I was just reviewing the Nasal Inhaler Drug Information tool, and I noticed that for Flonase, we only have the prescription product listed. This is also available in multiple OTC brands and package sizes. It would be very helpful to have these included as well, or to add the "doses" information to the individual drug records so that we can tell, somehow, how to calculate day supply for that product. Thank you

  8. Viewing photo improvement

    I like to look at photos in tile form so I can preview the photo and open the ones I want more detail. Problem is when I close the photo, the system brings me back up to the top instead of where I was when I opened the photo. Please change it so when I close photo I'm in the same spot.
    Thank you

  11. Enable setting a specific library as [Destination Library]

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    宛先ライブラリを固定する機能の要望

    Enable setting a specific library as [Destination Library]


    ■Description(内容):
    " 拡張リッチテキスト " 列にファイルをアップロードした際に、 [ 宛先ライブラリ ] の選択肢として表示されるが宛先としてライブラリを固定する機能を要望します。

    As we upload a file to “enhanced rich text” column, options of [Destination Library] are displayed.

    For improvement of usability, allow us to specify a specific library as [Destination Library] in advance so that we can prevent users from selecting a wrong library as destination.

    Thank you for your consideration.

    Correct a behavior that users belong to site owner group can approve workflow requests

    SharePoint 2010 承認ワーク フローをサイト内で利用しており、承認者として割り当てされていないユーザーが承認できる動作を確認しました。

    In SharePoint 2010 approval workflow we are using in our sites, we see that even a user who is not assigned as an approver have an ability to approve workflows. We found out that the user who can approve workflows is a members of site owner groups.

    Only users who are assigned as approvers should have ability to approve it, therefore, we hope you to correct this behavior or provide an…

  13. Behavior when opening SharePoint Libraries with required columns from OneDrive app

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    OneDrive アプリから SharePoint のライブラリを開く際に該当ライブラリに必須列が設定されている場合について

    Behavior when opening SharePoint Libraries with required columns from OneDrive app


    ■Description(内容):
    OneDrive アプリから SharePoint のライブラリを開く際に該当ライブラリに必須列が設定されている場合には、アイテムは読み取り専用にて表示されるが、他の表示方法も選択可能にあってほしい。また制限事項の理由が明示的ではないため変更を要望します。

    If you have SharePoint Online libraries with required columns, when opening the library from OneDrive app, it will always be displayed in read-only mode. It will be nice if you could remove such restrictions on the scenario mentioned above since Microsoft didn’t provide any clear reason for this limitation.

    For improvement usability, allow users to have options other than read-only to display the libraries which have required columns.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  15. Add filter for last couple years

    Filtering by date jumps between 30 years to 30 days. Adding increments for every year up to 5 years would be great. If that's not possible, then just a 2 year search would be a notable improvement.

  19. New sites look and feel

    How about a site where we can actually manage documents This "new look" is a huge step backwards I feel like Sharepoint 2002 when it comes to file management.
