  1. Provide script injection on tenant level

    This idea is somewhat similar to what Marc Anderson posted here: https://sharepoint.uservoice.com/forums/329220-sharepoint-dev-platform/suggestions/10533423-add-a-load-javascript-link-to-master-page-settin. But instead of limiting this capability to a site collection scope, it would be great to have an equal option on tenant level as well.

    Simply provide the option to set some URLs to be loaded as additional JavaScripts on each page within the SharePoint tenant. The simplest use case would be to enable analytics like Azure Application Insights or Google Analytics. Each URL gets loaded within the script manager of a SharePoint page and the script then can take care of loading other resources when needed.

    As part of the future roadmap for the SharePoint Framework, we are looking into doing something similar as explained in here. Stay tuned, more public information hopefully soon.

  2. Add external users as members upon creation of an Office 365 group

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    Office 365 グループ作成時に外部ユーザーをメンバーとして招待したい。
    Add external users as members upon creation of an Office 365 group


    ■Description(内容):
    SharePoint Online にて新規でグループサイトを作成する際、テナントで外部共有を有効にしていても、外部ユーザーをメンバーとして登録できない。
    サイトを作成後、Outlook などから外部ユーザーを追加することはできる。
    SharePoint Online でグループサイト作成時に外部ユーザーを登録可能とすることを希望します
    On SharePoint Online, when a parent group site is created, even if you have enabled external sharing at the Tenant level, it’s not possible to add external users as members.
    After you’ve created it, it’s possible to add the users through Outlook etc.
    I would like to be able to add external users to the group site when I first create it.

  3. Regarding deletion of permissions

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    権限の削除について
    Regarding deletion of permissions


    ■Description(内容):
    フル コントロール権限を持たないユーザーは、別のユーザーに権限を付与することはできるが、削除することはできない。このため、権限の付与だけではなく、[編集可能] または [表示可能] の切り替えや、権限の削除ができるようにしてほしい。
    Users without full control permissions can give permissions to other users, but cannot delete them. Thus I want to suggest making it so that those users can delete permissions, and switch between “Edit”and “Display”.

  4. Request for method to confirm the total number of term sets and terms

    *English follows Japanese

    用語セット、用語の件数には上限があるため、総件数を確認する機能の実装を希望します。
    In the SharePoint Admin Center, and in the Term Set Management section of the Site Management screen of a Site Collection, it is possible to add terms and term sets. However, it is not possible to confirm the number of sets or terms that have been registered.
    Because there is a limit on the number of terms and term sets, I would like a method by which to confirm the number of existing…

  5. Provide Guidelines on Recommended or Limitations of SharePoint Online Configuration

    In earlier versions of SharePoint (for on premise) there were guidelines on "boundaries and limits" for the product (for example https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/install/software-boundaries-and-limits-0 ). It would be useful if this same information was available for SharePoint Online if not talking about actual limitations (if none exist) but perhaps talking about recommendations for performance effective use. We have clients that are working with 10 or (many) more managed metadata columns and expecting day-to-day performance of the libraries (browsing, etc) to be unaffected, however, without guidance from Microsoft we cannot convince them otherwise.

  6. Regional Time Zone Management Capability

    Reported timestamp properties in SharePoint Admin Center for Site Listings are reflected in Pacific (PT UTC-8) Time Zone, which differs to reported Time Stamps in other areas of O365 Tenant Admin areas (e.g. Audit Log Searches, eDiscovery, etc...).

    Seeking interest consideration to allow managing the Regional Time Zone settings for all and / or individual Tenant Admin areas to reflect consistent Time Zone timestamps and support accurate reporting or triaging activities.
    This is to help ensure minimal confusion or discrepancy during compilation and review of timestamp information when taken from Tenancy Admin Centers as to when viewing at a level…

  7. Allow admins to delete users from Office 365 admin center via GUI

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    Office 365 管理センターからユーザーを削除する際、GUI上から削除を可能にしてほしい。

    Allow admins to delete users from Office 365 admin center via GUI


    ■Description(内容):
    現在、Office 365 管理センターの "削除済みユーザー" からユーザーを完全に削除する場合、PowerShell を利用する必要があると認識をいたしております。しかしながら、PowerShellのみの方法だと手数が多く、時間もかかり作業効率も悪いため、GUI上でも可能な操作にしていただきたいです。

    Currently it is required to run the PowerShell cmdlet to fully delete a user from the Office 365 admin center “deleted user”.

    For improvement of usability and work efficiency, it will be great if we could delete users directly on GUI.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  8. About displaying renamed the default group site owner group

    表示についてデフォルトのグループサイト所有者グループの名前が変更されました

    グループサイトの既定の所有者グループの名前を変更した後、ホームページで "サイトのアクセス許可"を表示すると、グループ名は変更されません。
    例えば。 デフォルトの共有ポイントグループの名前を「グループ名所有者」に「新しい所有者グループ」に変更します。 グループサイトのホームページで、設定メニューでサイトの権限をクリックすると、デフォルトの所有者グループの名前は引き続き「グループ名の所有者」として表示されます。

    After renaming group site default owner group, view "Site permissions" in home page, the group name is not changed.
    eg. Rename the default sharepoint group: "group name owners" to "New owner group". At group site home page,click site permissions in settings menu, the name of default owner group is still displayed as "group name owners"

  9. Sort Out the End User Permissions on SharePoint Online!

    The permissions model in SharePoint has become a terrible mess. Please read my blog for more information :

    http://www.letscollaborate.co.za/26-reasons-why-modern-sharepoint-online-site-permissions-are-a-hot-mess/

    The permissions model has become completely unmanageable and Microsoft needs to sort this out as a matter of urgency.

  10. About the permission settings that the audit log search can perform

    *English follows Japanese
    監査ログの検索が実行できる権限設定について
    Office 365監査ログ レポート機能で、単独のアクティビティを出力することが可能にしてほしい。 (ファイルとページのアクティビティ、共有とアクセス要求アクティビティなどありますが)

    例 : ファイルとページのみ表示し出力可能にしてほしい

    About the permission settings that the audit log search can perform
    In the reporting feature of office 365 Audit Log, there are file and page activity, share and access request activity, but no single activity.
    Please make it allows to output a single activity, like only output file and pages.

  11. Configurable Session Timeout for SharePoint Online

    I would like to increase the Session timeout for SharePoint Online. Allow a SharePoint Admin to configure their own timeout setting. As we Map our SharePoint Sites, 5 days is less than we would like. 30 days would be nice or the ability to set it myself.

  12. In our E3 license, allow us to turn on Office Apps (Word Online, SharePoint, One Drive, etc) Independently

    Currently users cannot get Word Online, Excel Online, PowerPoint Online, Delve, Video Portal, One Note and One Drive unless we enable the SharePoint Online Plan 2.

    While we have no issue with making Word, Excel, PowerPoint, One Note, and SharePoint available to all users, we don't want to open up One Drive until IT has fully vetted it.

    Unfortunately, the option to hide OneDrive can only be toggled on/off for the entire tenant.

    If we could either enable the Office components individually, or choose to hide OneDrive from everyone but users in the IT group, it would allow us much…

  13. In SharePoint Online Admin, would be good to see the timer job frequencies with your tenancy. During development or configuration

    In SharePoint Online Admin, would be good to see the timer job frequencies with your tenancy. During development or configuration, there are specific tasks that are done in the background i.e. Full Search Crawl, Variation Timer Jobs.
    They do not appear to be consistent with the documented SharePoint 2013 default timer job frequencies.

  14. SharePoint Online (Office 365) Site Structure/Tree

    In our tenant space, we have around 120 site collections. Each site collection has sub-sites underneath and those sub-sites have sub-sites in them (nested structure)

    At one point, if an administrator wanted to get a structure (like a tree view or site map) which will give information on all the site collections, sites and sub-sites in the tenant space, there is no other option but to go to each site collection and add a tree view to the left navigation. It would be close to impossible to look into each site collection and use the 'Content and Structure' option in…

  15. Strong Warning Prior to Activating Publishing Feature

    Since the activation of the publishing features irreversibly changes the regular ability to work with site templates, there needs to be a very strong warning informing the administrator of those irreversible changes. The lack of a warning message such as this caused me considerable problems when I had to recreate site collections and templates to remove the publishing features.

  16. Wildcards in search fields

    The fields for search users, and all similar fields, should admit wildcards to make work easier.
    Actually, in "user profile admin" option, per example, I must input all alphabet letters to find users, and with 3 users I must input 26 letters if one of them have "z" letter.
    With 5000 or 50000 profiles I do not want think about it.

  18. Please give us back the ability to disable versioning on a library

    We must have the ability to disable versioning on libaray. Im uploading pdfs that will never change, and they have a workflow tied to them. When I upload a pdf and it runs its workflow, it now has 34 versions!!! Im constantly running out of storage because of this. I called support and they cant do anything to help because sharepoint took the ability to disable versioning out. Please help, this problem will not go away until you guys give us back the ability to turn versioning off.

  19. Public and Private Sites Column

    In the new SharePoint admin center under active sites it would be nice to have a column in the pick list that shows which sites are set as public or private. We are in the edu sector and need to have all sites set to private or students can view them, but not all staff create sites that private, this would be an easy way to manage those and quickly change them back to private.

  20. Give the ability to select /sites/{name} or /teams/{name} at time of site creations

    We'd like to have the ability to create a SharePoint site collection and choose whether it will use the path /sites or /teams. Right now go back to the admin settings make the tenant wide change and switch back when done.
