  1. Please provide a feature for site collection administrators to retrieve site file access status details

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    サイト コレクションの管理者によりサイト内のファイルへのアクセス状況の詳細を取得できる機能を提供してほしい。
    Please provide a feature for site collection administrators to retrieve site file access status details


    ■Description(内容):
    サイトの利用状況では、サイト内のファイルへのアクセスが指定した日時に、誰がアクセスしているのかなどの詳細情報が確認できない。また、IRM で保護されたファイルについてもアクセス数自体が反映されない。サイト コレクションを管理する上で、ファイルへのアクセス情報の詳細が必要であるため、サイト コレクションの管理者によりサイト内のファイルへのアクセス状況の詳細を取得できる機能を提供してほしい。​
    Detailed information like the date and time when a site file was accessed, the user who accessed the file etc cannot be checked in "Site usage". In addition, the number of accesses for IRM protected files are not reflected as well. As details of file access information are required when managing site collections, we hope a feature can be provided for site collection administrators to retrieve site file access status details.

  2. 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…

  3. Ability to Rename SharePoint Tenant Name/URL when no content shared or account is new

    I am unable to modify my SharePoint sub-domain or tenant name and I understand the complication with permissions with sites that have shared content; however, in a case with new users with no shared content we should be allowed to modify this sub-domain.

    Secondly, the default name for the subdomain is the users verified dns name and domain concatenated. Example, arioncorp.com (my verified dns name) is suggested to SharePoint name by default as arioncorpcom.sharepoint.com instead of arioncorp.sharepoint.com. For new users this is confusing. The arioncorp.sharepoint.com should be the default suggestion for the SharePoint URL since my dns domain was verified.

  4. About List Settings > Item-level Permissions, provide reference materials that clearly mentioned the impaction on SharePoint performance

    After granting privileges to many users, and performed the following settings on SharePoint list,
    Will such settings bring any impaction on SharePoint Online performance? User wants Microsoft to provide relevant reference materials that clearly mentioned the impaction on SharePoint performance
    List Settings > "Read access" > Read items that were created by the user ; "Create and Edit access" : Create items and edit items that were created by the user
    ーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーー

    大勢のユーザーにリストに対し権限を付与した後、リストの機能で、[詳細設定]>「読み取りアクセス権」で[ユーザー本人が作成したアイテム]と「作成/編集のアクセス権」で「ユーザー本人のアイテム 」に設定した場合、運用上パフォーマンスに影響あるかについての公開資料がほしいです。
    また、上記設定に関して紹介した公開資料もほしいです。

  5. Customer wants to hide site collection parameter about ResourceQuota at SharePoint Online Management Center and SharePoint Online Management

    SharePoint Online でサーバーリソースフォータ (ResourceQuota) に関する項目を非表示にしてほしい。
    Customer wants to hide site collection parameter about ResourceQuota at SharePoint Online Management Center and SharePoint Online Management Shell.

    ■Description(内容):
    関連機能 (サンド ボックス ソリューション) が廃棄され、サーバーリソースフォータ (ResourceQuota) を意識する必要がないにもかかわらず、SharePoint 管理センターに [○○ のリソースが使用可能] と表示され、PowerShell コマンドを実行する際にも、[ResourceQuota] と [ResourceQuotaWarningLevel] の項目が表示されます。
    混乱しやすいので、サーバーリソースフォータ (ResourceQuota) に関する項目を非表示にしてほしい。

    Since the related feature, Sandbox solution is no longer supported, so there is no necessary to concern about ResourceQuota.
    But when we create or confirm site collection, with SharePoint Online Management Center or SharePoint Online Management Shell, ResourceQuota and ResourceQuotaWarningLevel parameter is displayed and necessary to specify when to create.

  6. Make the default group on Access RequestSettings dialog box be a choice/drop down

    Currently, if sharing is allowed, the only choice in the Access Request Settings is to add them to the default Members group:


    1. If the box is checked: add them to the [site] Members group

    2. If the box is unchecked: add them [site] Members group when the admin accepts their request.

    It would be nice if other groups or permissions were available in The Access Request Settings dialog box (like the [site] Viewers group or restricted read permission).

    Yes, the site admin can uncheck that box but then the site admin has to open each individual request and change the drop…

  8. The new SPO Admin Center misreports storage usage

    There looks to be a 12-24hour delay in the new SPO Admin Center reporting site space usage.
    For example, SPO site and old SPO Admin Center report space usage at 200GB but the new SPO Admin Center reports usage of 150GB.

  9. Setting a permissions level that hides setting status for access rights, displays documents, and enables downloading

    Setting a permissions level that hides setting status for access rights, displays documents, and enables downloading

    If users create a custom permission in "Permissions Levels" and checks "Display Items", "Display Pages", and "Open Permission", the setting status for access rights will not be displayed, and downloads cannot be done as well.
    As a result, if "Open Item" is checked, download becomes possible, but setting status for access rights can be confirmed as well, so we hope that a feature to prevent the confirmation of setting status for access…

  10. Monitoring, Reporting and Management of Site Collection App Catalog

    No current Site Listing, Reporting or Monitoring capabilities available within SharePoint Online Admin Center on Site Collection App Catalog.
    This is currently only possible by using PowerShell scripts to interrogate the entire Tenancy Site Collection list and inspecting each Site Collection for the presence of an "AppCatalog" library and respective Feature Definition ID which is not sustainable against a growing large volume of Site Collections within Tenancy to provide timely reporting or monitoring capabilities.

    Seeking interest consideration for SharePoint Admin Center to have UI capabilities to report or list Site Collections that have Site Collection App Catalog enabled as well…

  11. 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.

  12. I know this has been raised before but the inability to rename our SP Online tenant with our updated business name is the single is

    I know this has been raised before but the inability to rename our SP Online tenant with our updated business name is the single issue holding us back. Telling our management team that the new version of SharePoint will be based around a name we stopped using over 3 years ago makes IT look extremely unprofessional. We had been hoping for the last 2 years that this would be implemented by now.

  16. Cannot find a summary view of what each External Users have acces to various SharePoint sites

    There's no way to capture all the SharePoint sites an external user have access to. There are times these external users are long time company partners or short period contractors who need provision access to a certain SharePoint site or another SharePoint site at different time. Beside deleting their user profiles in SharePoint Admin, there is a possibility of deleting their profiles in Azure as part of the deletion process.

  17. 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.
