    ■件名 :SharePoint Online のユーザー検索機能を見直してほしい。
    ■内容:SharePoint Online に格納されているアイテムを他ユーザーへ共有する際のユーザー入力欄について、以下のように動作の見直しを希望。
    ・現在は 3 文字以上の文字入力でユーザー検索を行えるが、1 文字か 2 文字でのユーザー検索機能も追加して欲しい。

    ・ユーザーの検索内容を学習して、検索と Hit の回数が多いユーザーを優先して表示させるような、検索学習機能を追加して欲しい。

    I hope the behavior regarding the user entry field when sharing the items once stored in SharePoin Online among other users to be improved by the additional following features:
    -The user search feature enabling me to make any searches with one or two characters instead of entering more than 3 characters into the field during a current search.

    -The search learning function enabling the users who have made a search and done a Hit many times

  3. Access From First-party Apps

    Normally, SharePoint can be accessed from other Microsoft apps like Teams, OneNote, and so on. However, when a location-based policy (IP restriction) is enabled, these apps are blocked, even though these apps are accessed within the trusted network boundary. This is because SharePoint cannot determine whether a user of these apps is within the trusted boundary.

    Please add a feature to enable Microsoft applications like Teams to support location-based policies.

  4. Allow URL changes when site names are changed

    Allow us to change the URL of the site. My site name was changed from TestSite to Intranet but "TestSite" remains part of the URL.

  5. Disable SharePoint "News from Sites" feature.

    The default view in the SharePoint homepage includes the "News from Sites" feature at the top of the page. This should be disabled or admins should be given the option of disabling it. Our organization does not use the news feature, and we're FORCED to look at the same stagnant content month after month after month with no real way of changing it.

  6. Enable copy & paste, drag & drop inside rich text field

    Currently the rich text field does not allow copying the files or images inline directly. Also, drag and drop is not possible inside rich text field.

    In outlook microsoft allows drag & drop , copy & paste. If the same feature is available in SharePoint it will be more useful for the users who use SharePoint as a Collaborative Enviroment.

  7. Keep hidden OSX hidden files when uploading to Sharepoint (.ds_store)

    When I upload files to Sharepoint, everyone can see OSX hidden system files such as .DS_STORE. These are files hidden to users that contain information such as position of files, size of the window etc. Windows users are not familiar with this and OSX users shouldn't see those, and I have to manually delete them in my browser.

    Please make the hidden files invisible as they should be.

  8. Support inviting external users to multiple SharePoint security groups

    It appears that when you add an external user to a site collection security group in SharePoint Online and then add them to another security group in the same site collection, if the user hasn't accepted the invite yet then they will only be granted permissions to the second security group.

    For example, if I create a new site collection and I add an external user to the Visitors group then an invite email is sent to the user. If I then add that same user to a second security group and the user hasn't yet accepted my invite, then…

  9. Chat through share point

    We are using the share point in our IT development and it would be great if we can integrate slack with share point, or add a chat (communication) by text feature.

  11. Shorten the sharing link/ URL

    Whenever I share a URL with others, SharePoint generates a very long URL, which appears tardy and unprofessional. I suggest providing an option for those who wish to share a short version of the URL.

  15. Change the default language after the SharePoint site has been created

    Though we can change the language settings, but once the site has been created there is no option to change its default language.

  16. Make it possible to enable "Enforce relationship behavior" in large lists

    When a list reaches 5000 items, you cannot enable Cascade Delete on lookup columns. SharePoint will return an error saying that "the attempted operation is prohibited because it exceeds the list view threshold"

  17. Send feedback to Site Admins first

    Send feedback to site admin first.

    I'm not sure if this does already but it would be great if this feedback went to site admins. It's not clear to a user if this is to Microsoft and the SharePoint/Office 365 team or about the site itself.

  20. Notifications/Overview on Site Pages comments

    Send a notification to the page owner or configurable address when a new comment is posted to a sitepage.
    Or make an page where you, as a content responsible person, can get an overview of the latest comments.
    If you have a lot of information pages it's not possible to check each page manually every day in order to see if a new comment has been posted that you might need to respond to.
