  1. SharePoint Store access management

    For large O365 tenants the App requests submitted via the SharePoint store is not manageable. For our company we receive aprox. 50 requests per month. Would be good to have more options in the SharePoint Admin/App/Configure Store Settings to configure if the users can access the SharePoint Store. Currently you can only configure the App Purchases (yes/no).

  2. Site Sharing bulk invites

    sharing at site with sharepoint online appears to be limited to 15 invites at any one time. I have over 1000+ external users to invite and doing 15 at a time is going to a pain. A bulk invite option is needed/required....

  3. Make the DaysToShowNewIndicator property available

    In SharePoint on prem it is possible to set the duration of the 'new' indicator by means of the "DaysToShowNewIndicator" property (int) on the webApp.

    Would it be possible to make this property accessible in SharePoint Online?

  4. Improving the MyAnalytics feature

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    MyAnalytics の機能拡充について
    Improving the MyAnalytics feature


    ■Description(内容):
    MyAnalytics では個人の活動の可視化が可能であるが以下の機能を拡充することでより利用価値が高まると考えます。

    ・日ごとに個人活動を可視化する。
    ・自身の活動に自身が評価を行いその情報をエクスポートできる。

    上記機能が利用可能となると、MyAnalytics 上の結果をもとに自身にとって効率の良い業務を進められた実績を保持でき、その情報をもとに同業務における今後の工数の目安を把握し、効率化が可能です。
    上記機能の拡充を提案します。
    MyAnalytics can visualize personal activities, but we believe that if features can be improved in the following way the usage value will increase.

    ・Visualize personal activities on a daily basis
    ・Let users grade their own activities and export those information

    If the above features become available, it is possible to maintain a track record of efficient work based on the results in MyAnalytics, and using that information it is possible to get an estimate on future man-hours required for the same work…

  5. SharePoint start page

    SharePoint のスタートページについて
    SharePoint start page


    ■Description(内容):
    SharePoint のスタートページに、以前の画面では "よくアクセスするサイト" "おすすめのサイト" の横に、[See All すべて表示] のボタンがあり、すべてのサイトを表示が可能でございました。
    しかしながら、動作変更により、[See All すべて表示] のボタンが表示されないユーザーが存在します。
    今後の機能拡充として、すべての表示ができるように機能の拡充を希望します。
    There used to be a "See All Show Everything" button next to "Frequently accessed sites" and "Recommended sites" for previous SharePoint start pages and every site could be displayed from there.
    However the "See All Show Everything" button will not be displayed for some users due to behaviour changes.
    We hope that this feature can be improved so that every site can be displayed.

  6. Add custom columns to SharePoint admin center Active sites list

    Add the ability to add one or more custom columns to the Active sites list. Functionality similar to a SharePoint List. Allow for admin notes and custom metadata about a site to better coordinate between tenant admins on the purpose of a site.

  7. Enable Selecting the permission levels more finely.

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):SharePoint Online のアクセス許可レベルの作成について
    Enable Selecting the permission levels more finely.


    ■Description(内容):
    現状、ライブラリ作成やアクセス権限の管理などはフルコントロールを付与する必要があるが、フルコントロールを付与することでファイルの閲覧や編集なども可能になる。ファイルの閲覧や編集は不可、かつ、ライブラリの作成や権限付与などは可能なアクセス許可レベルを作成可能にしてほしい。

    For now, it is necessary to have a full privilege within the tenant to create a Library or Manage authorization. As a concern, having this permission allows the user to view and edit files and data freely at the same time.

    Since the administrator does not want them to view or edit files, it would be great if we could select the permission levels more finely as like for Library creation and authorization only.

  8. "Search from Hub sites"

    Currently in SPOnline, by default the search scope on hub site searches across the hub and its associated sites. But within an associated comm site, the scope is set only to that site. We need an ability to set the scope of search in all/any of the associated site to its "hub" level.

    Expecting design change for below:


    1. Configurable/PowerShell option to elevate the default search scope to its "Hub" level in an associated comm site.


    2. If we were to go with "organization level" search scope in the connected sites, is there a possibility to limit the search scope to only…

  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. Automatically remove Hub Site associations if the Hub Site is deleted

    Currently, you can delete a Hub site, but the site still appears in the list of Hub site associations that someone can choose from. Even if you delete it from the Recycle Bin, it still shows up. Rather than try to remove it via PowerShell (which apparently still doesn't work well and/or is impossible if you no longer have the site ID), I would like SharePoint Online to just remove the Hub site from the association list if the site itself is deleted.

  12. Disable Create News Post from SharePoint Home Page

    Add an option from SharePoint Admin's Settings to disable or hide the new "+ Create News Post" from the SharePoint Home. This is a great feature, but how about the people who are not using it or are not ready yet to use this feature at all?

    There is an option to hide or disable the " + Create Site" link, but nothing for hiding or disabling the "+ Create News Post" link.

  13. Add Alerting for Sharepoint Online Storage usage as a whole and not just Site Collections

    Currently alerting for storage limits is available for site collections however we use Office 365 Groups Extensively which is not covered under this alerting. As a result, we only receive alerts when we run out of storage space completely. I'd like to see the ability to alert on the SharePoint Online Storage as a whole and not just for site collections

  14. Administrator awareness of present of non-NoScript sites

    Given the (awesome) new features with easier access to retrieving bearer tokens for secured resources, this is also potentially opening up huge security issues. Since anything on a page can access the consented permissions, script injections can be used to use on these sites in non-expected ways.

    SharePoint today has a feature to prevent some malicous scripts from being executed on a page through the NoScript setting, although this is only present on all sites for newer tenants or the Modern sites. There are many tenants and site collections out there that still are script enabled; either before the default…

  15. Share site with entire tenant/domain

    Rather then granting access to a B2B user one-by-one we would like to white-list an entire domain/tenant. Our company intranet is based on SharePoint and some of the subsidiaries have separate O365 tenants. We should be able to create a policy that allows anyone coming from subsidiary1.com to have access to our SharePoint instance. Today we'd have to run scripts to add every user as a B2B in our Azure AD

  18. All Sites Hierarchy & Details

    There is currently no way to see the entire hierarchy of a single site collection or all site collections as a whole, regardless of the managed paths. Please create a new view or report that provides the hierarchy view of all sites in O365. This would be extremely valuable for managing sites during the migration and new sites creation process, as well as ongoing governance activities. It should include: Site Collection Url(s), Site Title, Administrators, Created, Last Modified and size.

  19. Allow "Office 365 Group" to be used for "Target Audience" in SharePoint online

    Currently, I can only find "Office 365 groups" in content permission setting or sharing, but I cannot find a valid "office 365 group" via "Target Audience".
