  1. Allow creation of managed path

    On prem, we use web apps and managed path to define our sites structure. I understand that we cannot have webapps online but why can't we create managed path?

    I would use it to group sites by type
    http://tenant/teams/TeamA
    http://tenant/groups/GroupA
    http://tenant/services/IT
    http://tenant/clients/000000

    It would help for search and administration.

    Thanks.

  2. Allow us to set publishing period when we upload videos

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    Stream に動画をアップロードする際に公開期間を設ける設定機能を追加希望
    Allow us to set publishing period when we upload videos


    ■Description(内容):
    現在、Stream にアップロードしている動画については、必要に応じて公開や非公開にしています。しかし、その作業ができないような状況が生じた際に、動画の公開期間を設定できるよう機能があれば便利だと思います。また、その機能があることで業務の効率化に繋がると思うため、機能の追加を要望します。

    In current design, we are able to choose publish/private for uploaded video if needed.
    It would be great if we are also available to set publishing period for each video, for the situation that we are not able to change status of videos timely manner. This feature will help us to improve work efficiency as well.

  3. Allow us to hide some items on Office 365 such as [Featured]

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    Office 365 の [おすすめ] などを非表示にする機能を提供してほしい
    Allow us to hide some items on Office 365 such as [Featured]


    ■Description(内容):
    自分が編集や閲覧したファイルを他人に知られることを望んでいないケースがあることから、Office 365 のホーム画面 (https://www.office.com) に、[おすすめ]、[最近使ったファイル]、[注目度の高いファイル] などの項目を非表示とする機能を提供してほしい。

    I would like to see the feature to hide some items in Office 365 Home Page (https://www.office.com) such as [Featured], [Recent Files] and [Discover], since some users do not want to show files which they accessed or edited to another users.

  4. Allow modern team site creation without O365 groups

    For a brief period we used to be able to create modern team sites not connected to an O365 group. It seems this functionality was taken away and now we are forced to create an O365 group with a new modern team site. There are many instances where an O365 group is not needed.

  5. Give us control or at least visibility of the Content Type Hub Syndication Timer Job in SPO

    The syndication of Content Types using the Content Type Hub is a frustrating experience as you cannot tell when the Content Type will actually be available in sites that are connected to the Hub. At present there is no visibility of when the syndication timer will run or a way of forcing / changing the frequency. Once published it could be 15mins, 4 hours or worse before the Content Type appears in the consuming site.

    This idea is to give users control or at least visibility of the Content Type Hub Syndication Timer Job in SPO.

  7. Add a way to change favicon on modern team sites

    There doesn't seem to be a way to change the favicon on a site. This is helpful to make shortcuts looks nice and relevant to the site, as well as being able to easily locate the site tab when many tabs are open

  8. Calendar Export Feature to Include All Recurring Items

    To allow exporting items from a Calendar list to a report, such as excel, of all items within the selected calendar including the RECURRING items for each instance, not just the first instance of each item, as these events are actually recurring and should have an option to be shown as such. Also, the ability to provide a date range to limit the export data for the desired report.

  9. Enable setting the default value of capacity at the time of site creation.

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):Microsoft Teams を作成する際にサイト容量の既定値を設定する方法について

    Enable setting the default value of capacity at the time of site creation.


    ■Description(内容):
    Microsoft Teams を作成するとチーム サイト が作成されるが、その時作成される容量の上限を作成時に指定したい。もしくは、テナント全体で作成されるサイトの初期値を設定できるようにしてほしい。
    Microsoft Teams で作成されるサイトは SharePoint のテナント容量を消費する為、サイト作成後に上限を変更するのではなく​最初から指定できる機能の実装を希望します。

    Currently, team sites are automatically generated when you create Microsoft Teams, however, I would like to specify the upper limit of capacity for the team sites at the time of site creation. What we concerned is the sites created by Microsoft Teams will consume tenant capacity of SharePoint a lot.

    Alternatively, please allow the user to set the initial default value of capacity when creating the site (within the whole…

  10. Export WIKI pages as PDF or Word files

    Would be great to export(download) wiki pages as PDF of Word files.

    All similar systems have that feature (Atlassian Confluence, Zendesk)

  11. Make the Office files attached to the Custom list open/editing by Office Client.

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):カスタム リストに添付した Office ファイルを開く際の動作について

    Make the Office files attached to the Custom list open/editing by Office Client.


    ■Description(内容):
    サイト コレクションのサイトの設定にて、 "既定でクライアント アプリケーションでドキュメントを開く" をアクティブにしているにも関わらず、現在カスタム リストに添付したOffice ファイルをモダン UI にて開く際に、Office Online 以外で開くことができません。
    サイト コレクション全体の設定と矛盾した動きになっていますので、カスタム リストに添付した Office ファイルについても、Office クライアントで開けるように動作の改善を希望します。

    We are aware of that the files can only be opened with Office Online when opening the Office file attached to the Custom list via the modern UI although "Open Documents in Client Applications by Default " is enabled in the settings of the Site collection.

    It seems the settings of the Site collection is not properly applied, hence, we hope this…

  13. Statistics (Web analysis)

    In the SharePoint 2010 we have used the statistics to make quarterly reports on all documents in the site. The report is of big help when we decide on which areas we should focus on update, create new, delete etc. In addition we also use it so log the traffic on our portal.

    In the SharePoint online this is not possible as of today. Via the Site usage we only get to see the 8 documents that is viewed the most the last 7 days.

  14. Add template options for sites. lists and libraries back in

    Add template options for sites. lists and libraries back in

    These template options are now missing in modern team sites and communication sites, which means that I am forced to re create my favorite libraries and sites over and over again and from scratch. This is not friendly!

    One is group generated the other one person generated

  16. Regional settings for International sites

    International projects integrate people collaborating from various locations with different cultural backgrounds AND DIFFERENT DATE FORMATS AND NUMBER FORMATS.
    Site settings link a region to a language, date & time format, number format. In Windows these settings are separated. Better.
    I need an option to select English (International = US English), ISO8601 date & time format YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM, and a number format using a dot as decimal point. This is currently impossible to find. US Military and international teams in science as well as many global organizations need these settings. It is not good to force the US date format…

  17. Encourage sharing w groups

    We typically discourage site owners from sharing at the document level due to the increase in administrative work that it causes. We also discourage owners from inviting individuals - we suggest that inviting groups makes the work simpler. However, the interface when sharing a document doesn't encourage sharing with groups - doesn't even make it obvious that sharing with groups is possible there. Are we wrong in how we are encouraging our site owners to manage their sites? If not, can it be made more obvious that sharing with groups is the best practice?

  18. Farsi or Persian Package for Sharepoint

    To whom it may concern

    For sure, it is not the first time that you hear about this option for Sharepoint.
    It is really necessary for all the Persian language all over the world to use this package for their Sharepoint (Iran, Afghanista, Pakistan, Tajikistan, ...).
    Persian (Farsi) package is very close to the "Dari Package" which exist in the Sharepoint Language Package list but not exactly the same.
    PLEASE HELP US, ALL THE FASRI LANGUAGE PEOPLE ...

    Sincerely,

  20. More useful site usage reports

    Provide more usage reports. Specifically the number of views a list has had.

    e.g. We publish news items in a custom list but have no stats for how many people are viewing those news items. Users do not open each news article individually - they just look at the view like they'd look at a newspaper page.
