  1. 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”.

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

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


    ■Description(内容):
    SharePoint 管理センター、およびサイト コレクションの [サイトの管理] 画面の [用語セットの管理] 画面にて、用語セットおよび用語の登録が可能ですが、ここで登録した用語セットおよび用語の総件数を確認することができません。
    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…

  3. 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.

  4. promotion

    Document Property Promotion and Demotion is a Feature designed to synchronize specific metadata across documents ..

    Unfortunately it breask CheckSums, such as MD5. That makes file integraty verification impossible

    In SharePoint On Premise, PowerShell can disable it via:

    $web = Get-SPWeb "http://test/sites/test_1/"
    $web.ParserEnabled = $false

    Please provide same function in SharePoint Online.

    Thanks

  5. 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.

  6. 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"

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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…

  12. 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. Allow user with full control to download site usage reports

    As a site collection admin or user with full control, I should be able to download by site usage reports. I have no way of doing this so have to request to our SharePoint admin. team to run a report. This is not something they want to do on a regular basis. The purpose would be able to track trends beyond 90 or 180 days. Today, I do not see 180 days as an option only 90 days and I want to track site usage beyond 90 days so need a way to download the data myself so that we…

  20. Show Teams private channel site collections in SharePoint Online Admin center

    When someone creates a private channel in Teams it sets up a site collection that is not displayed in the SharePoint Admin Center.

    Because it is not displayed in the SharePoint Admin Center it is difficult to determine, how much storage these Teams private channel site collections are using.

    Also because we have a storage quota set by default for site collections, because it does not display in the admin center the quota can only be changed through powershell.
