  2. Regarding transition for the number of sites in SharePoint Online

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    SharePoint Online におけるサイト数の推移について
    Regarding transition for the number of sites in SharePoint Online


    ■Description(内容):
    現状 [SharePoint管理センター]の[サイトの総数とアクティビティ]において、最長でも過去 180 日間までの利用状況しか確認できないが、少なくとも過去 1 ~ 2 年の SharePoint サイト数の推移を取得可能な機能の実装および、Teams 作成時に自動的に作成されるサイトを除いた、SharePoint サイトのサイトの利用状況が確認できる機能の実装を要望します。
    Currently usage for up to 180 days can be checked in the Total and Active Sites pane in Sharepoint Admin Center, thus I am suggesting for a feature that allows site transition details for at least the past 1 or 2 years to be obtained, and another feature where Sharepoint sites (excluding sites made automatically when Teams is created) usage status can be checked.

  3. Usage metric of Stream

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    Stream の使用量について
    Usage metric of Stream


    ■Description(内容):
    Stream の使用量を確認する場合は、Stream 管理センターより確認することが可能です。
    しかしながら、現時点での動作では、一日での動画使用量等を確認することができません。
    Teams を利用するようになり会議等で利用者が膨大に増加しています。
    前日比等を確認できるよう、Microsoft 365 管理センターからのレポートや、PowerShellでの確認が可能となるよう機能の拡張を要望します。
    It’s possible to confirm how much Stream is being used from the Stream Admin Center. However the current system does not allow you to check the usage per day. Due to use of Teams, the number of users using Stream for meetings has exploded.
    Please add a report to the Microsoft 365 Admin Center, or a way to use PowerShell to check the day-to-day usage of Stream by users.

  4. Check-out function

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    チェックアウト機能について
    Check-out function


    ■Description(内容):
    全体管理者等のユーザーであれば、他のユーザーがチェックアウトしたアイテムであってもチェックインが可能な動作を確認しております。
    本人以外が誤ってチェックインすることを制御するため、本人以外がチェックアウトしたアイテムをチェックインできないよう制御したいです。
    機能の拡張を要望します。
    Administrators with total admin rights can check-in items even if they have been checked-out by other users.
    There is the risk that such users may check-in items other than their own, and therefore I would like to be able to set it so that they can’t check in other users’ items.

  5. Use of the Modern UI Search Part on Classic Sites

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    クラシック サイトでモダン UI の検索パーツの利用希望
    Use of the Modern UI Search Part on Classic Sites


    ■Description(内容):
    クラシック UI の SharePoint サイトでもモダン UI の検索パーツを利用できるようにしてほしい。クラシック UI からモダン UI にすぐに移行することが難しい場合に、似たようなアプリや Web パーツが利用できると利便性が広がると思います。

    I would like to be able to use the Search Part from the Modern UI on SharePoint sites with Classic UI. In cases where it is difficult to move from the Classic UI to the Modern UI, it would be good if the functionality of the Web Parts was expanded upon to allow the usage outlined above.

  6. Delve and Share Point is accessible although disabled in the tenant

    This is basically a bug and not sure a new idea that have to be fixed.
    In our tenant we disabled share point and Delve. (Due to business security needs)
    Users are finding a way to by pass this and able to access Delve and SharePoint although they should not be able to access those pages.
    For example, they go to Outlook, pointing to any user or email and opening the contact card, pointing to more then view profile and share point and then directed to the share point and from there to Delve. I need a way to completely…

  7. Enable Workflow size management

    Can you please enable the Workflow size limit so we can change from default value which is 15?
    I want to be able to restrict how many workflows run in the same time to 1. Because I have lists that can be edited from multiple places and if more than 1 workflow runs at the same time, it will fail to update the item.

  8. Used capacity for each team site of Teams

    Implement a feature that can retrieve the used capacity for each team site of Teams in SharePoint admin center. The data should be isolated from SharePoint sites’ one.

  9. Automatic provisioning of App Catalog when tenant is created

    I believe it's time to include an App Catalog in the list of sites which are created by default with new tenants (e.g. Search Center, Content Type Hub).

  10. Admin Center Site Storage Used to include Sub-Site Storage

    Currently the new admin center only reports the storage used by any parent site and NOT any of its sub-sites. If you are able to navigate to the "classic" admin view, it shows the proper storage for the collection, but would rather not have to do that every time you want an accurate view, of tenant storage usage.

  11. site creation

    How about an option in the tenant admin to add users to a list/group that are allowed to create sites, that way it can be limited to those users while maintaining more flexibility with the modern permissions.

  12. Customize role to approve API permission in SPO admin center

    Currently only Global administrators have a permission to approve permission request in the SharePoint API management page, and we cannot customize other user role to allow approval.
    It would be great that we could customize user role and assign it to SharePoint administrators to approve permission requests in API management permission.

    mail-enabled security groups (MESG) added to a sharepoint group should apply permissions to the members of the group. I have been on the phone with sharepoint support for an hour. at the end of the call the agent stated he was extremely perplexed why the MESG seemed to intermittently apply permissions to some users but not others.

  15. Search Preferences

    Give us the ability to configure whether search results in SharePoint open in the browser or the client application for all users. Currently, each user must change this setting for their account. It would be helpful to have the ability to change this setting as the administrator for everyone.

  18. Do Away With "Classic" Feature Categorization

    What does "Classic" mean?

    The term "Classic" to me means, "this is old, not part of the modern SharePoint experience / functionality, and eventually it's going away". The reason for calling features Classic is not clear to me--I just feel uneasy about leveraging them. If they have a future, why should they be set apart from other configurations as "Classic". If they are part of the normal and ongoing infrastructure, just call them "Features" or "Services", or simply group them with every other normal feature. If they are non-strategic or they are going away, classify them as "To Be Retired"…

  20. Add multiple featured links at once to the SharePoint start page

    It would be very convenient if I can add multiple featured links at once to the SharePoint start page, because it is time consuming that manually adding each URL to the page and doing this is not that simple. I want users to easily access to any site collections which they have access to.
