  1. Allow CSP admin (delegated administrator) to manage SharePoint site collections

    Being MIcrosoft's Cloud Solution Provider (CSP), I have to manage users, groups and permissions of Site Collections in my customer’s tenant using PowerShell/CSOM as CSP administrator (delegated administrator).

    The requirement is, I cannot use credentials of global admin and Site Collection admin to perform above mentioned tasks. The only credentials I have are of CSP Admin (delegated admin).

    Although, there is an option to add support partner "Add Support Partner" (Foreign principal for "Company" in Role "TenantAdmins" (Global Microsoft Support Tenant Contract)) in SharePoitn Online admin portal . But there is no API or PowerShell commands to add support partner…

  2. 365 – SharePoint Online, Usage and Activity Reports

    We need information on user with ID activity per site collection with URL, which user has opened, changed, synched, downloaded, published files within which site collection with URL. Currently the tenant admin report shows cumulative data: nr of files opened synched etc. per user, but not clear in which site collections and vice versa nr of files edited within a site collection but without information on the users. Users activity on particular site collection is indeed the most important usage statistic, in order to answer the simple question " who is using what in sharepoint".

  3. Setting the time zone at once for SPO sites

    Setting the site time zone is important for using SPO, and it would be great if we could change the time zone at once for multiple sites with GUI or PowerShell cmdlet. Currently, site administrators need to access each site to change it, so it is a time-consuming process for administrators.

  4. User wants to add a feature that could display file numbers right after Folders on Document Library

    In order to manage Document Library (how many files are in a Folder) easily, apart from the way to display "Item Child Count" Column on Document Library View, user wants to add a feature that could display the count of file numbers right after each Folder.

    SharePointのドキュメントライブラリで、フォルダ内のファイル数表示させたいが、既存の「子アイテムの数」列をビューに表示させる方法以外に、フォルダーの右側に括弧などを付けて、ファイルの数を表示させたいです。

  5. Duplicate a site OR Save site as template

    Saving site as a template is only available in onpremise SharePoint. Being able to duplicate a site or save it as template is essential for SharePoint admins' productivity as it is needed to sometimes use the template of another site on a different project or to troubleshoot workflows or errors in SharePoint.

  6. Prevent AAD Security Groups from appearing in SharePoint Online People Picker

    Would like to be able to prevent/hide AD Security Groups(that are used for Group Based Licensing) from showing up in SharePoint Online People Picker. This is necessary to ensure that these groups are not being used for anything outside of licensing entitlements.

  8. SharePoint Admin Center Show All Storage Allocation Used and ALL Site Collections

    SharePoint Admin Center needs to show the correct storage allocation being used by ALL products that take away from a tenant's storage allocation. This would include Office 365 Groups that now create site collections and the Office 365 Video channels that also take away from your total storage allocation. Also, the SharePoint Admin Center should show all site collections (those created from Office 365 Groups and from the Video channel). Right now, no one gets a clear picture of how much storage they are truly using if Video Channels or Office 365 Groups have been created.

  9. Enable auditing of file actions (open, view etc.) on SharePoint Online

    SharePoint Online would solve numerous problems for our business but our involvement with certain organisations means we have to have a full audit trail of when every policy document gets opened, viewed etc. Without this we can't implement SharePoint online and we don't have the resources for an on premises option.

  10. Exclude Conditional Access Policy on SharePoint Online for external users

    The option to apply Conditional Access Policies (CAS) on SharePoint Online is a great relief. This will definitely help assure access to our user base is only from defined IP ranges. We leverage TeamSites predominantly for internal collaboration (98%) and we also use TeamSites for external sharing for collaboration (2%) with our vendors.

    We would like to leverage CAS for our internal users so that they access the content only from intranet. If we leverage CAS - it will prevent external users from accessing our tenant. How can we we best use both the offering i.e External Sharing and Conditional…

  12. Allow for customization of Suggested sites...

    There are Suggested sites, Recommended sites, Managed Sites and Followed sites. But how does that classification even work?

    Is there a way to edit Suggested sites?
    The new landing page has a list of four but it appears to be read only. Is there no customization allowed for this new experience?

  13. The 5000 threshold should not apply when saving a list as a template without content!

    We are unable to save a document library as a template without content and are getting the 5000 threshold error message. Although the library has 37 000 items this should be absolutely irrelevant when saving a list/library as a template! Surely the list definition (including columns, views, etc.) have nothing to do with how many items are in the list! There are similar occasions when we run into the 5000 list error when it should be irrelevant - as the 5000 limit is a hard wall your customers run into I suggest Microsoft develop a way to log errors to…

  14. "Share" and "Copy Link" Default Setting

    The "Share" and "Copy Link" functionality, as designed, in SharePoint Online and OneDrive is so dangerous and detrimental, I am writing an entire advisory warning employees of the exposure these could open and the support nightmare they will generate.

    While it will take me some time to write up all the suggested changes to this here, I wanted to get this one out now.

    "People with existing access" needs to be a "Default Link Type" option in the SharePoint Admin “Sharing” settings and should be the default for all new tenants.

    I think there shouldn’t be any other default option…

    Set the SharePoint Administrator as "site collection admins" when creating new Modern Team sites and Communication sites.
    Today t's the group associated with the team site and even Global Admin cannot access or do anything.
    This is really strange having all members of the group as "site collection admins" and unlogical to not provide SharePoint Admin access to SharePoint sites as it was before. Really hard to manage for us.

  16. User override for domain based blacklist

    Allow specific users the ability to have an override for a domain based blacklist if the person doing the sharing is a member of a specific AD group. This functionality should be available for both SharePoint and OneDrive for Business Sites.

  17. Give users ability to stop sharing with contribute share permissions

    We use many sharepoint Online sites for document management.

    Users either have Read or Contribute share permissions.

    ON the folders where they have contribute permissions they can share folders, but they cannot stop sharing.
    This is a major issue, why enable users to share when they aren't able to remove them.
    Would be great to enable users with Contribute share permission to remove shares they created,

  19. Enable Office 365 Tenant Sign-Up to provide selectable option for default SPO language

    When creating a new Office 365 Tenant, your SPO default language is determined typically by the language of the marketing page you signed up from - e.g. https://products.office.com/en-gb/business/compare-more-office-365-for-business-plans or https://products.office.com/de-DE/business/compare-more-office-365-for-business-plans?omkt=de-DE the latter being German and former English.

    This may mean that the default language provided for SPO is not what you intended it to be, e.g. English instead of French or German instead of English. Some organizations want to have a default language that suits their business needs.

    There is no easy way to change this to your language of choice once your tenant is created. Also, there is no…

  20. Let user decide on default language when creating Office 365 tenancy

    When new tenancy is created, all default site collections are created with the language that corresponds to the country where the company is placed. This is inconvenient and needs to be re-done in cross-country companies. I suggest to let admin decide on language for the default site collections.
