  1. Margin on the right-hand side of SharePoint Online top pages

    ■Title(件名):
    SharePoint Online トップ ページの画面右にある余白について
    Margin on the right-hand side of SharePoint Online top pages


    ■Description(内容):
    SharePoint Online のトップ ページで Web パーツ使ってサイトを作成している。
    編集の際に 2 段組みや 3 段組み の設定しているが画面右に余白があり、ブラウザーのサイズによって最適化するスペースではあることの回答はいただいたが、弊社で試用しているモニターは横長のものが多く、余白がとても広く感じる。
    4 段組みの設定や Web パーツを設定できるようにすることで画面も有効活用でき、上記の余白が多いと感じる点についても改善できると考えているので機能の拡充を希望します。

    We create sites using web parts on the SharePoint Online top page.
    When editing, we select a 2- or 3-tier layout, but there a margin on the right of the page, and while I have previously inquired and been told that this is to scale according to the size of the browser, we use a lot of very wide monitors in our company, so the…

  2. Restriction on inserting Web parts to subsites

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    サブサイトに web パーツを挿入する際の権限について
    Restriction on inserting Web parts to subsites


    ■Description(内容):
    現状、サブサイトに web パーツを挿入する際、サブサイトが紐づいているトップ サイトにも権限が必要となる。セキュリティ上、トップ サイトに権限を付与できない場合も想定されるので、サブサイトのデザイン以上の権限を付与することで web パーツを挿入できるようにしてほしい。

    Presently, when Web parts are added to subsites, permission to do so is required for the top site that the subsite is linked to as well. For security reasons, it isn’t always possible to give rights for the top site, so I would like it to be possible to give permissions to insert web parts to subsites independent of the permissions for the top site.

  3. Potential issue with the design of the preview panel when deploying a site design on a SharePoint site as it's not responsive.

    O365 site design screen not responsive on a minimized window While creating a Site from O365 Tenant Admin , the site gets created. Once the site created it get displayed under the active sites. Once clicked on the newly created site , then newly created site opens in a new window. Now if you minimize the screen and try to see the Site Design progress then you can see the number of steps being executed. On a minimized screen if you see the Site Designs actually the screen doesn't render as a responsive screen. It freezes the content completely.

  4. remove template

    I suggest we allow users to re-order and/or remove the site page templates presented when creating a new sub-site. I would prefer that Team Site (classic experience) template to be the default choice for my site collection admins when they create a new subsites.

    In on-premise SharePoint servers we can modify this behavior with the Enable or Disable-SPWebTemplateForSiteMaster commands but these commands are not available for SharePoint Online

  5. Please fix custom theme custom logos so they show in any theme

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    カスタムテーマのカスタムロゴを、任意のテーマでも表示するように改善してほしい
    Please fix custom theme custom logos so they show in any theme


    ■Description(内容):
    現在カスタムテーマにてロゴを設定していても、ユーザーが任意のテーマに変更した場合、カスタム手間に設定しているロゴは非表示となります。(管理者側でテーマを変更しないよう設定する方法は存じております)
    そのため、カスタムテーマ設定中にユーザーが任意のテーマに変更したとしても、ロゴが表示されるよう修正をお願いいたします。

    Currently, even if a logo is set for accustom theme, if a user changes to an arbitrary theme, the custom logo will disappear. (we are aware that you can disable theme switching from the admin side)
    Please make it so that even if users change to another theme while using a custom theme, the logo is still displayed.

  6. Add a Toggle button on the home page for users wanting to use dark mode

    Having a toggle button on the home page to allow users to change the view of the site from standard to dark mode to support their preference and accessibility needs. It would require the modules in SharePoint to be set up such that they auto update to be viewable in either colour palette.

  7. SPO site disclosed when close the shared file

    We can share specific file by sharing a SPO link. Those files can be opened in SharePoint viewer, if you click X to close it, file and viewer get closed and the browser remains. Because of this, the SPO site where the file is stored is shown up on the browser which I don’t want everyone to access. So, I would like to close the SPO file viewer browser itself when hitting the X button.

  10. Copying from SharePoint Datasheet (table) to paste in Excel

    You use to be able to copy from SharePoint Datasheet (table) and then paste to Excel. IE would prompt to allow you to do this. With IE no longer being supported and not as safe security wise to use as a browser, we only use Edge or Chrome, and this function cannot be done within those browsers. This functionality is important, and I've seen posts on other sites that users wish to have this functionality back.

    現在クラシック UI で"外観の変更"からテーマカラーを濃い青などの暗い色に変更すると、サイトにアップロードしたテキスト ファイルまで文字を含め黒くなり、非常に見づらい状態となる。
    テーマカラー変更時にテキスト ファイル等テーマカラーに影響されてしまうファイルの表示を見やすく調整する機能の実装を希望します。

    Currently, in the classic UI, if you change the theme color to a deep blue or other dark color, even text files uploaded to the site have their text in black, and this is very hard to see.
    Please add a function to change the display of text files etc. so they are easier to see in response to changes in the theme color.

  14. Limit available site designs to current site template

    The site designs available to users needs to be limited to only those applicable to the current site template. e.g if the current site is a Communications site then only display site designs for that template and not all site designs. Users don't know what site designs to choose and this leads to confusion.

  15. Custom font combination requirement for SharePoint Modern Sites

    Per our organization intranet sites branding guidelines there are some preferred combinations which was possible earlier. However currently we are running into limited options with SharePoint Online. - Site Details : Modern Site with Team Site Template(STS#3, Team site (no Office 365 group)) -
    Currently available : Georgia/Segoe UI
    Business Requirement : Georgia/Calibri combination
    Could you please make the Georgia/Calibri combination available or provide us a solution which would support this change.

  16. Add ability to change Look & Feel setting for each site connected to a hub.

    Currently the sites connected to a hub seem to always default beck to the "theme" set on the Hub Site. Some groups/departments under the Hub sites want, for example, the dark themes with dark background while others prefer the lighter view. We need the ability to make that more flexible for each site,

    The Look & Feel shows up for each site and we can select one specific to that site however within the same day it reverts back to the one that is set for the Hub site.

    Please consider adding this to improve the end user experience.

  18. Enstella Exchange Recovery Software

    The EDB to PST Converter mentioned here has to be one of the stable and reliable methods for exchanged recovery as thousands of veteran exchange administrators seem to think the same and place their trust in Enstella. There can be many reasons for exchange failure such as EDB file corruption, hardware failure, human negligence, malicious scripts, improper shutdown, JET errors, log file related issues etc. But whatever be the cause Enstella can handle all corruption issues with ease.
    The simple and straightforward user interface of Enstella allows even non technically sound people to operate it and recover the required exchange…

    A page has become damaged on a site created using templates, so we would like to re-create it, but there is no way to apply templates to existing pages.
    Please make it possible to apply templates to pages, since there is no way to do this right no other than creating the site with the same template from scratch, or manually creating the layout to match the template.

  20. Change site design order in "choose a design" dropdown when creating a new site

    Allow admins to programmatically (via PowerShell) move their preferred site designs to the top of the list, above the default sites designs of Topic, Showcase, and Blank (for communication sites). When we create site designs to enforce governance standards but cannot make them the default choice, we find that they do not get used.
