  1. onedrive client

    1. Create a M365 group in O365 admin center.
    2. Users sync SharePoint files through OneDrive client.
    3. Admin remove one of the members from this group.
    4. The user who has been removed from M365 group cannot log in onedrive client, with signing in info shown.

    Suggestion:
    Even if the user doesn't have permission to the sharepoint site where onedrive synced files stored, onedrive client should still log in successfully, with error shaowing that 'you cannot sync this sharepoint library becase you don't have permission in this site' etc.

  3. Recycle Bin "Recycle Status" (x of y items restored) on SharePoint Page

    If you restore a lot of items from the recyle bin (e.g. >1000) you do not have a status message available if the recycle job is already finished or if there is still something going on in the background.

    The problem is, that the recycle job can take a long while and if users cannot see if there is something going on, they are navigating back to the recycle bin and can see that their necessary items are still available to be restored.

    Now everybody assumes that there was something wrong with the previous restore click and tries again, but…

  4. Remove the "Configuration of the Document ID feature is scheduled to be completed by an automated process." warning message

    Recently created libraries show the following in RED even after configuration is complete

    "Configuration of the Document ID feature is scheduled to be completed by an automated process."

    This is visible on the "Document ID Settings" page.

    Once configuration is complete this message should be removed.

  5. Shortcut to OneDrive support for libraries with "/" in their name

    Currently not supported for shortcuts, but supported for sync.
    Should be supported everywhere.

  6. Add a way to check file metadata size in storage volume metrics

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    記憶域メトリックスにてファイルのメタデータを確認できる機能の搭載を希望します
    Add a way to check file metadata size in storage volume metrics


    ■Description(内容):
    ドキュメント ライブラリにファイルをアップロードすると、実際のサイズよりも大きくなるため、サイト コレクションの容量を圧迫してしまう。
    ファイル単体・バージョン管理の容量は確認可能だが、メタデータの容量の算出だけ不可なためサイト コレクションの容量管理に影響が出ている。

    記憶域メトリックスからメタデータを確認できる機能の搭載を希望いたします。

    When uploading a file to a document library, it becomes larger than it really is, which puts pressure on the site collection capacity.
    It’s possible to check how much space is used by individual files or version management, but the volume taken by metadata cannot be measured, and this has an effect on the management of site collection space.
    Please make it possible to check metadata size in the storage volume metrics.

  7. I want the ability to sort folders to the bottom in the document library

    Currently, this behavior does not apply to folders when you set the view sort.
    I want to display the folders uploaded to the document library at the bottom.
    Therefore, we request the ability to sort folders to the bottom in the document library.

    ドキュメント ライブラリへアップロードされているフォルダーを一番下に表示させたい。
    現在、ビューの並べ替えを設定した際にフォルダーには適用されない動作となる。
    そのため、ドキュメント ライブラリにてフォルダーを一番下に並び替える機能を要望します。

  8. About the “expanded” option for groups within view settings in the modern UI

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    モダン UI でのビュー設定内グループ化 [展開] のオプションについて
    About the “expanded” option for groups within view settings in the modern UI


    ■Description(内容):
    モダン UI にてビューの設定でグループ化を行い既定の表示方法を [展開] とすると、該当のリスト/ライブラリを開いたときに全件を展開状態で表示しようとするためパフォーマンスに影響が出る場合がある。
    グループが展開された状態でもモダン UI の通常のビューのようにスクロールごとに読み込むようにするなど、回避策を提供してほしい。

    In the modern UI, if grouping is used in view settings, and then “expanded” is selected as the display method, performance can be affected since this causes all items to be opened in this expanded state when the corresponding list/library is opened.
    Please add a workaround for this, such as having each scroll open separately like in normal modern UI views, even when groups are expanded.

  9. Restrict maximum file upload size

    It would be great if you could limit the maximum file size via the library settings.

  10. Access the stock images as a standalone image library and not just through the image webpart/adding an image to a page.

    To browse stock images, you have to go through the image webpart or by adding an image to a page.

    Please make it possible to view the stock images as a library in its own right, from which you can download images directly or grab a link to that image to share with others.

  11. SPO - Permission Groups / Security Groups - disable inheritance into new subfolders

    It would be great, if I could disable inheritance also on the security group.

    When I will add security group to root folder and then I will create sub folder, that security group is automatically inherited from root folder. But I need posibility to tell that security group "you cannot inherit into new subfolders".

  13. Preserve modified dates on file upload and download

    When uploading or downloading files to and from SharePoint, either via a web browser or via the Teams client, the modified date and time of the files are changed to the upload/download time. I understand the create date would change, as a new copy is indeed created, but the modified date/time should be preserved.

    I note that the modified date is preserved when uploading via local OneDrive client syncing to a library.

  14. send an alert when Document Libraries reach the 5000 threshold

    send an alert by mail or even a pop message in the list page to the site (list/library) owner once the list is about to reach the 5000 threshold (maybe 80% before)

  15. "Replace all" option for bulk file upload

    Currently replacing files in a library requires the user to select between "Replace" or "Keep both" on every item. We have business cases where files need to be edited locally but stored in spo and often uploaded in bulk. Even with versioning enabled, this selection is required. I suggest a 'Replace all' option.

  16. Sharing multiple files in a folder

    Back in 2019, Microsoft confirmed that there was a limitation on sharing multiple files within a single folder on SharePoint Online. Here is the link:

    https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/msoffice_sharepoint-mso_winother-mso_o365b/sharepoint-sharing-multiple-files/8f1c51ed-e69d-4ee8-89c5-8deb96607713

    Since then, that specific uservoice post was removed.
    I think it is fitting that this be razed again, as there is a need for this.

    Kind Regards

  17. Assign document-id to folders

    Also assign a document-id and url to folders in a document library.
    So the link keeps working after moving a folder.

  18. Display when having selected ‘file size’ in a view

    フォルダーも総計ファイル サイズで表示されるよう機能の拡充を希望します。

    Currently, when a view is set up for a SharePoint Online Document Library, selecting ‘file size’ shows only the size of individual files, and the number of files contained within a folder.
    Please make it possible to show the total size of files within a folder.

  19. Allow for document set content types to be added to the allowed content types in the document set settings.

    I would love to be able to add document set content types to the allowed content types within another document set's settings. This would allow for users to quickly create nested document sets for easier metadata management.

  20. I want to download all grouped items set as “Second priority column” at once

    グループ化したアイテムを "2 番目に優先する列" に設定したアイテムを含めて一括でダウンロードしたい
    I want to download all grouped items set as “Second priority column” at once


    ■Description(内容):
    ドキュメント ライブラリにて、"2 番目に優先する列" まで設定してグループ化した場合、"最優先する列" に設定したグループのみを展開し、チェック ボックス をオンにしても、画面上部のメニューが消えて一括ダウンロードができない。
    "2 番目に優先する列" に設定したカテゴリをすべて展開、もしくは展開後折り畳みをするとダウンロードができる。
    "2 番目に優先する列" を展開することなく 一括でダウンロードする方法を希望します。

    In document libraries, if you set grouped items as far as a “Second priority column”, only the group set as “Highest priority column” is expanded, and even if you check the box the menu at the top of the screen disappears and it cannot be downloaded.
    It possible to expand all categories set as “Second priority column”, or to expand and then collapse…
