  1. Event Based Retention Triggers

    Enable event based retention triggers to be assigned at document library level. Everything in the document library would then have the same retention trigger and retention period. Retention trigger dates could then be customised depending on type of content. These could be legacy (date of birth), current (date created/modified) or future known/unknown (end of contract/case closed/termination of employment). This could be a mandatory field. The system could then use this date to automatically calculate the deletion date, e.g. if the event trigger is date of birth, retention policy is delete 100 years after date of birth, the deletion date could…

  2. Send OneDrive for Business deletion mail in the language of the manager

    When a OneDrive for Business account is scheduled for deletion the manager will be the new manager for 30 days. He also gets a email with the information and also the link to the OneDrive of the user.

    Please send this email to the manager in the language which he has configured in the regional settings.

  3. Column visibility settings

    Hiding/showing a list column in new/edit/display forms can only be done through PowerShell. Adding a list settings page to address this will be great.

  4. Allow Survey Questions to dispaly horizontally

    Allow Survey Questions to display horizontally. We receive a lot of requests from our users to display survey choice questions horizontally. The vertical responses consume a lot of page real estate and would be better arranged horizontally.

  5. Create the ability to move files and folders across libraries

    Maintaining order on a site with numerous libraries would be easier if you could drag and drop or use the Move to command to move files and folders to other Libraries on the same site.

    Copying them from browser to browser would be really cool, but I think the former would be a quick win. Currently I have to delete these files & folder and recreate them in the correct library.

  6. Approval Workflow mobile view support please

    Hi, i understand that approval workflow is not supported in mobile view. Would be good if this approval workflow is enable and a mobile compatibility in future. Also to improve the speed up of approval process ( currently keep loading a few seconds, and sometimes few minutes). Thanks

  8. The Audit Log of downloaded files

    In Teams, even the files are downloaded, the status of Audit Log on Office 365 is still displayed as “access”.
    So it is difficult to differentiate whether the file was downloaded or accessed.
    It would be really helpful if the correct status can be displayed, after the files were downloaded.

  9. Default values indicator

    It would be useful to see the default values of all changed settings with some mark next to them

  10. Make Machine Translation Service use improved Neural Network translation in SharePoint Online.

    The MTS in Office 365 uses the old statistical translation engine by default. Changing to the new engine is an easy fix on your end, just change the MachineTranslationCategory property to "generalnn"

  11. SharePoint Admin Center Enhancements

    This SharePoint Admin centre is lacking multiple basic things

    1) Sorting
    2) how many total sites are
    3) Segregation of sites on base of template
    4) Define colour coding, if sites are consuming more space in a day

  13. Need a function which can confirm reports of views and visitors in app and content

    There is no such kind of reports that can confirm views and visitors of app or content.
    It would be really helpful if content or app on SharePoint Online can be automatically generated a list report of views and visitors, ex. Announcement app etc.

  14. Site collections listing, search and navigration

    In the site collection listing of the SharePoint admin centre show the title name given to the site, the primary site collection owner and also a count of the number of subsites (0-x), type of site template used (i.e. teamsite, publishing site, bi, project site) and date&time of last updated and date created. How about some navigration filters like 'most recent' which lists sites created within the past quarter, 'most activity' listing the top 5 - 10 sites in use.

  15. Update the filters for managed metadata.

    Currently if you have a group of managed metadata that has submetadatas within the group, the filter function do not work as well as it should.

    For instance lets say you have the following terms:
    North America

      Canada
    
    Ontario
    Quebec
    Alberta
    USA
    New York
    California
    Chicago

    and the end users would like to select both Ontario and Alberta for their search, it will only allow them to select one of those choices.

  17. We received "Bad Request - Request Too Long" error when we tested multiple user account on single computer

    We received "Bad Request - Request Too Long" error when we tested multiple user account on a single computer.
    We just try to log-in by Account1 and log-out. Try to log-in by another account (e.g. Account2), repeated this sequence for 10s of accounts.
    We saw this problem on Microsoft Edge and by removing cache on Edge, the problem has gone.
    We believe this is a kind of bug and hopefully resolved in the future.

  18. Make level access with sharing links more obvious

    An option to have the default level sharing permission 'view only'. At the moment all sharing links are edit by default but it's not obvious to the user from the 'get link' or 'share' dialogue box that they have to click on the link to change the settings. So whilst we need the option for external users to have edit access to content that's shared with them, this would not be our default unless it was clear at the point the end user is getting the link that they can change to view only. Please make this more obvious.

  19. Sharepoint Office 365

    We have a small team of 5 People within the organisation using Office365 SharePoint. Roughly a year and more ago on multiple instances SharePoint on the local teams individual PC's was not allowing the back of local SharePoint data, so in my particular case the team at Telstra who support Office365 in Australia had to make back ups of the SharePoint data however I have now up to 3 or 4 backups personally and this was caused when the team said that our naming conventions where to long and not acce3ptable with SharePoint online. The issiue is we cannot migrate…

  20. インシデント事後レポートの日本語版について

    インシデント番号が発行され、表示された内容についてすべて英語で記載されている。
    また、事後レポートが発行されてもテナント上でダウンロードする際に、ダウンロードが可能な内容もすべて英語で記載されている。
    自社内で全ユーザーに対してアナウンスをする際に、毎回進捗状況や翻訳されたレポートを添付してアナウンスを行うため、作業が非常に手間がかかる。

    現在メッセージ センターで翻訳機能があるように、サービス正常性に対しても翻訳の機能を展開してほしい。
    また、インシデントの事後レポートに対しても日本語版を添付し、テナント内でダウンロードができるように改善をしてほしい。
