  1. Set New Site Contents Page to be site Welcome Page

    I love the new site contents page. I think it is so good that it is the perfect page to be the home page of any Team Site. Currently this is not possible to set back-end pages to be the Welcome page of a site.

    We should be able to set the new site contents page to be the homepage of the site.

  2. Show the clear message when the users are not able to create new sites

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    既存のサイト名で新しいサイトを作成した際のエラー メッセージについて
    Show the clear message when the users are not able to create new sites


    ■Description(内容):
    従来の SharePoint 管理センターから新しいサイトを作成する場合、既に同じ URL が存在している場合は "サイト コレクションが既に存在します" というメッセージが表示されます。

    しかしながら、既に存在しているサイトに権限がないユーザーが新しく同じ URL でサイトを作成しようとすると "アクセスの拒否" と表示されます。
    アクセスの拒否のエラーでは "権限がないために サイトの作成ができない" と読み取れる為、既に作成済みのサイトに権限がない場合でも、同じ URL でサイトを作成しようとした場合には、"サイト コレクションが既に存在します"というエラーが表示されるようにしてほしい

    At the SharePoint admin center, users see the error message as “the site collection already exists” if they try to create the new site with same URL as existing site.

    However, if the user creating the new site do not have permission to the existing site, they just see “Access denied” and this message make users considered that they…

  3. Create modern sites within Sharepoint site collection

    When Sharepoint admins create modern Team Sites using the "Create
    Site" option on this page:

    https://contosa.sharepoint.com/_layouts/15/sharepoint.aspx

    It should create the modern Team Site under the master Sharepoint site collection like a traditional Sharepoint site and allow the modern site to be customized and managed like any other Sharepoint site, including back-ups and resource management. For any existing modern Team Sites created using "Create Site" there should be an admin option in O365 for admins to move the existing orphaned modern Team Sites under the master site collection.

  4. DenyAddAndCustomizePages for office 365 group morden site and OneDrive for Business

    https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Turn-scripting-capabilities-on-or-off-1F2C515F-5D7E-448A-9FD7-835DA935584F?ui=en-US&rs=en-US&ad=US

    From this article, using the following powershell command we can Turn scripting capabilities on for specified site.
    Set-SPOsite <SiteURL> -DenyAddAndCustomizePages 0

    It doesn't work for group site and onedrive for business site. We can set Custom Script value to Allow users to run custom script on personal sites in SharePoint admin. All onedrive for business site will turn on it after 24 hours.

    But how to turn on for group site?

  6. Set the locale when creating a site (and tenant-wide defaults)

    Within the new SharePoint admin center, we can set the 'timezone'. But - why (WHY !?!) does this not include the LOCALE setting as well ??

    I need to change EVERY site collection to "English (Australia)" - as we use DD/MM/YYYY format (most countries do also).

    Even better - would be a TENANT-WIDE setting for ;
    * Timezone
    * Locale

  8. Embed URL from known source http

    We should be able to embed URLs when the website is in the secured list of sites. However the current sharepoint on line only allows https and not http when using the Embed Webpart.

  10. 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…

  12. 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

  14. Add an external sharing function to SharePoint Apps for accessing the external site.

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):SharePoint アプリによる外部サイトへのアクセスについて

    Add an external sharing function to SharePoint Apps for accessing the external site.


    ■Description(内容):
    ​現在の SharePoint アプリではアクセス許可を受けている外部サイトへアクセスを行うための機能が搭載されていないことを確認した。
    ブラウザ経由でのアクセスは可能ではあるが、アプリでも同様の機能の利用が出来るよう、SharePoint アプリにおいても外部サイトへのアクセスを行えるように外部共有機能の追加を希望します。

    We recognize that the capability for accessing the external site which has the access permission is not available in the SharePoint Apps.

    Although we can access through the browser, it would be more useful if the feature will provide the same availability for the applications as well. Also, we hope you to add an external sharing function via SharePoint Apps so that we can be smoothly accessed the external site.

    Thank you for your continued support.

    Since the deleted sites keep remain for the time being and it takes time to make a change for name and so on, I hope that the feature will be implemented to control " Sites you visit often" and "Recently used sites".

  16. SharePoint access control visibility

    Access control is extremely important to my company and our customers. Currently, unless you're an Owner of a team site, you have a very limited view of who has access to what. Members can see who content has been shared with via the Share->Shared With dialog view, but this doesn't show the level of access those individuals have (read vs. write). This causes angst among our users who sometimes won't add content because they are not sure who has the ability to modify the content they add. To get around this, we have created a custom page for our team…

  17. Created sharing links should respect permission inheritance settings and link (permission) should be visible in UI

    The Share feature apparently creates a new security principal that overrides the classic SharePoint permission model. These security principals neither can be seen, nor broken on lower levels in the hierarchy. This makes the tracking of who has permission to what at any given time impossible. (Technically it is possible, but the logic would be throttled by the SPO service.) The issue appears for internal, guest and anonymous links as well.

    We need a way to be able to keep track of what is shared on what level. (The announced feature of sharing report is not providing the necessary information.)…

  18. Possibility to remove "open in explorer" option

    How to remove the "open in explorer" option available with Internet Explorer browser for the document library.

    I set up right management in order to offer limited access to .pdf documents in a library. Download in local and print are not proposed when browser display a document. But the "open in explorer" option by-pass this restrictions and offer the possibility for any users to get a copy of the documents.

    Could we add the possibility to allow or not this option ?

    For improvement of usability and manageability, add option to enable/disable version management in SharePoint Online sites. With MC138148 taking its place, it prevents users to run any command, impossible for users to switch on/off version managements.

  20. External Users Should not need a Microsoft account to access library and sites

    As it stands right now external users who don't have a Microsoft account associated with their email address can access a folder or a file in a document library with just simple authentication flow. However, for sites and libraries the person has to have a Microsoft account associated with their email address to be able to share the content. This causes a lot of inconvenience to our users as they cannot ask their clients to create Microsoft accounts just to access the data.
    Hope that Microsoft aims to make external access to the library and state redundant.
