  1. Anaonymous Link Expiration Controlled by Site

    Currently, you can only set the mandatory expiration of anonymous links at the tenant level. It would be much more helpful if this was controlled at the site level instead.

  2. Give site owners a consistent access request experience

    The request access process is inconsistent across the product. When a user requests access to a site he or she is not a member of, the site owner has an easy time granting the user the appropriate level of access by clicking the ... context menu and assigning the user to a group.

    If a user requests access to a library with unique permissions from the parent, the site owner can only grant the user an explicit permission level even though there are groups in place that govern access. Giving a bunch of users direct access to an object just…

  3. Where is feedback going ?

    I am a new SP site admin and I wonder where this feedback goes. Does it go to our own organisation or to Microsoft? If it goes to Microsoft I'd like to remove the feedback option. If it goes to our own organsiation I'd like to know who gets it. Please let me know - I am Erik Ebert eebert@gpstrategies.com
    Thanks,
    Erik

  4. 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.

  6. 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?

    On Internet Explorer in which a cookie called “RpsContextCookie” is not stored, if you directly access a URL in a SharePoint Online site without going through an Office 365 portal site (https://portal.office.com), after accepting a cookie, a URL will direct you to a root site collection (https://<tenant name>.sharepoint.com).

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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 ;

  13. 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…

  14. Fix AD Group Name Sync

    If you change the name of an AD Group SharePoint doesn't synchronise this change to the Site Collection. You have to manually delete the group in the Site Collection users list or with Powershell.

  15. Get a list of all users who liked a posted page on SharePoint Online

    ■Title(件名):
    SharePoint Online の投稿したページの "いいね" を押した全ユーザーを集計し一覧で確認できる機能拡充
    Get a list of all users who liked a posted page on SharePoint Online


    ■Description(内容):
    現時点では、"いいね" を押したユーザーが、一定数を超えると「その他○○人」と表示されて、省略されてしまう。
    そのため、ページに対する明確な評価となる "いいね" の数及びユーザーの確認ができない。
    投稿内容の評価をするために "いいね" を押した全ユーザーを集計し一覧で確認できる機能拡充を希望します。

    At present, if the number of users who pressed “Like” goes over a certain value, “and x other users” is shown instead of a list.
    Therefore, you cannot check both the names and number of users who liked a page.
    In order to rate content of posts, please add a list of all users who liked a page.

    A feature to aggregate the number of accesses for each page and document


    ■Description(内容):
    以前は、[人気の傾向] 機能にてアクセス数の確認が可能でしたが、2020 年 2 月 29 日以降に機能の提供を終了したため、現在は監査ログ機能にてアクセス数を手動で計算することができます。

    In the past the "Popularity Trends" feature could be used to check the number of accesses, but as this feature has been discontinued from 29th Feburary 2020, currently the number of accesses has to be calculated manually by using the audit log feature.

    However since the audit log feature can only be operated by the administrator, we hope that it can be improved to allow users with full control…

  18. 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.

  19. SPO Access Control Policies - Remove dependency between Global & Site level policies for unmanaged devices

    Currently in SharePoint Online we can configure the Global access control policy in the SPO Admin Center for full access, limited (web-only) access, or to block access. This setting applies to all SPO sites in the tenant.

    There is also a site level conditional access policy parameter that can be set on each SPO site. For example:

    -ConditionalAccessPolicy AllowFullAccess
    -ConditionalAccessPolicy AllowLimitedAccess

    The catch here is sites currently must be as restrictive as the Global Policy. This creates a problem if you want all your sites to have the Global limited access by default (no downloading of files) except for a…

    2018 年 10 月より展開されている MC138148 が展開され、適用されるとコマンドレッドの実行が制御され、無効化 /有効化の変更ができないので機能の実装を希望します。

    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.

    Thank you for your consideration.
