  1. Ability to manage downloading files

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    Office ファイル以外のファイルへのダウンロード制御機能について

    Ability to manage downloading files


    現在、ユーザーに "閲覧のみ" 権限を付与することで Office ファイルのダウンロードを制御することは可能だが、それ以外の動画や画像ファイルなどはダウンロード制御を行うことができないので、できるようにしてほしい。

    Provide ability to restrict downloading of files that are not office files (e.g. videos, images). As far as we know, we cannot restrict downloading files except office files.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  2. Enable experiencing a page, solution or site as a different user, e.g. provide the ability to impersonate a user with fewer rights

    As Microsoft increasingly supports tailored experiences, we need the ability to operate as a user with equivalent or fewer credentials, including just not being the person who added information.

    For example, a site owner who made updates to a site is seeing Updated Pages (with explicit pages underneath) in the left navigation, but has no rights to remove the navigation and didn't realize that other people weren't seeing those pages.

    Another case was where the SCA had no issue opening a document with embedded documents, but it would not open for site owners and contributors.

    In our on-prem environment, I…

  3. Add Confluence type capabilities to SharePoint Wiki

    Atlassian Confluence is offering a bunch of wiki capabilities that make using the wiki as an effective collaboration tool very easy. I think if SharePoint could create similar solutions it would be very beneficial towards helping organizations maintain living wiki libraries. Some examples...


    • Allow users to create wiki page templates (also perhaps offer out of box wiki page templates to suggest best practices)

    • Improve the organizing experience for wiki pages. While the typical library experience is OK I think offering a parallel drag, drop hierarchy with a drill down experience would provide a more natural navigation structure for user in…

  4. Customize SharePoint Sites Page

    Give users the ability to customize this landing page. For example, I would like to see all of the sites I am following instead of just my frequent ones or suggested ones. I know there is a search box, which I sometimes utilize, but it's not very noticeable so I forget it's there. Also, what's the difference between "Frequent" sites and "Recent" sites listed on the left? Seems redundant to me yet there are different sites listed? Doesn't make that much sense to me. Thank you.

  5. Better site usage analytics

    There should be more robust analytics on site usage. What is available now is very limited. For example, I can see total page views in the past 7 days, and the trending section for most viewed pages over the past two weeks, but in the trending section it just shows the blue bar, I can't even hover to get a number of page visits. Overall, improvement is needed in the area of site usage metrics.

  6. Remove deleted sites from SharePoint Home

    On the 'Frequent sites' section of my home SharePoint page, it would be nice if deleted site collections were automatically removed from the 'Frequent sites' section. Clicking on the deleted site is just going to result in a '404' error.

  7. Regarding the feature to fix the column width for the list or document library

    *English follows Japanese

    リストやライブラリの列幅の設定機能を要望
    Regarding the feature to fix the column width for the list or document library


    ■Description(内容):

    現在、モダン UI のリストやライブラリでは、列幅を一時的に変更が可能な機能が存在するが、列幅を固定する機能ではないため、改めてリストやライブラリへアクセスすると、デフォルトの列幅で表示されてしまう。
    クラシック UI では一時的にも列幅の変更ができない。
    アイテムによって列の情報が見づらいことがあるため、管理者が列ごとに幅の既定値を設定する機能の実装を要望いたします。

    Currently, we have the feature to adjust the width of column on lists or document library with Modern UI.
    However, the adjustment is temporary, and the width of column will be reverted to the default once users access again those list or library. (This feature is not implemented on Classic UI).

    Some lists or library have large information for their column, so we hope the feature will be implemented allow administrators to fix…

  8. Make Sharepoint User Friendly

    It would be nice if the look and feel of share point was more windows based and user friendly. Its very archaic and challenging to navigate. A search engine inside of the program to pull information would be helpful. I have a lot of sales reps and customer service people who have rudimentary computer skills who continually are unable to use functionally and as a result I am unable to communicate information effectively.

  10. Add option to move list items

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    リスト アイテムを移動する機能の追加について

    Add option to move list items


    これまでリスト アイテムの移動が必要な場合、[コンテンツと構造] 機能を利用していましたが、本機能が 2019 年 3 月をもって完全に廃止されることを確認しました。
    しかしながら、代替機能となる [ファイルの移動とコピー] はライブラリ アイテムでのみ利用が可能であり、リスト アイテムの移動では利用することが出来ません。
    リスト アイテムの移動が必要となる場合を想定し機能の追加を希望します。

    Whenever we need to move the items, “Site Content and Structure” feature, which will be retired in Mar 2019, was usually used. Instead, to move the items now we have “Move/Copy files”, which only limited to move library items but not list items. For improvement of usability and manageability, implement the feature that help moving list items as well.

    Thank you for your consideration.

    Allow change of the external sharing invitation language settings


    SharePoint Online / OneDrive for Business の共有を行う際に送付する招待メールの言語は、現時点では招待する側の言語設定に依存する動作となることを確認している。

  13. Enable browser-based spell checking in all fields, all flavors of SharePoint

    Browser-based spell checking is familiar to all, and uses custom dictionaries, and provides the red squigglies as you type. It should be enabled on all single/multi-line fields and inputs in all versions and flavors of SharePoint, so that in all places where we type words we have the best chance of using the correct words and getting the information across more accurately.

  14. Allow editors to change the orientation of an image **in the browser**

    It would be great if editors could rotate/flip pictures within the browser in SharePoint Online (in both O365 and the upcoming SharePoint mobile app).

    Scenario: We have many field users who access SPO from mobile devices and in the course of their work take pictures which they need to upload into SPO. EXIF data is not utilized when uploading pictures from a mobile device into either document libraries or picture libraries.

    I have tried uploading pictures from both Android and iOS devices, into both picture and document libraries, and viewing them in FF, IE and Safari. In each scenario, the…

  15. Improve the speed of Sharepoint. Pages are loading to slow

    Increase speed. SharePoint is too slow. Our ICT indicates that this is outside their control. Please ensure faster loading times. Thanks for any cooperation that you can provide to make this better as it is a major issue for our business.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. I prefer classic sharepoint

    I really don't like the new theme.

    I much prefer the original sharePoint theme. It is very hard to tell folders from files in the new theme. The flat colors make everything blend.

    I also don't like that it becomes harder to copy a link to share. Dropbox lets you right click and copy the link. If you use your new theme, you have to click multiple times, select a link type and all kinds of stuff just to share a link.

    This is why I'm still using the classic style using the "Return to classic sharepoint" but sharepoint seems…

  20. Correct the behavior of Microsoft Teams when specific setting in SharePoint Admin Center is selected

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    SharePoint 管理センターの設定と Teams の動作の関連について

    Correct the behavior of Microsoft Teams when specific setting in SharePoint Admin Center is selected


    ■Description(内容):
    SharePoint 管理センターの [アクセスの制御] > [特定の IP アドレスの場所からのアクセスのみを許可します] のチェックを入れると、Teams にてファイルのアップロードができなくなった。Office 365 内のサービス間で一方の利用に支障をきたすような設定が存在するのは問題なので、急ぎ改善してほしい。

    We noticed that we cannot upload files in Microsoft Teams once we selected the option [access control] > [ Only allow access from specific IP address locations] from SharePoint Admin Center.

    Such behavior might be inconvenient for users who use multiple Office 365 services together, I hope you to improve this behavior as soon as possible.

    Thank you for your consideration.
