  1. Provide option to check out in Browser based editing and when editing properties of a document in a library

    At the moment when existing documents are opened in the Browser for editing they cannot be checked-out, they have to be checked-out prior to attempting to edit in the browser, this is not intuitive or user friendly. Most users will want to act and then be prompted rather than having to remember the correct sequence of things when attempting to edit in the browser.

    Similarly the document properties pane can be displayed in a document library but it does not feature a check-out option so if any of the document properties need to be edited the document again needs to…

  2. Implement a feature to check what permissions were granted to a group

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    グループ名を指定して、権限が付与されているサイトやアイテムなどを確認できる機能の提供を希望します。
    Implement a feature to check what permissions were granted to a group


    ■Description(内容):
    フォルダー毎に固有の権限が設定されており複雑な権限設定がされている場合、担当の管理者が退職後に把握することができなくなってしまうことがあるため、グループ名を指定しサイト、リスト、ライブラリ、フォルダー、アイテムなどこに対して権限が付与されているか一覧で確認できる機能を追加してほしい。
    I hope for a feature will be implemented so that after entering a group name, the permissions that were granted to the sites, lists, libraries, folders, items etc in a group can be viewed in a list. This will help in knowing what items have what kind of permissions set when say, all folders have complicated permissions set by an administrator and that administrator leaves the job.

  3. "shared with us"

    Please make "shared with us" optional and not a mandatory link in left-hand navigation -- we don't use it, and it confuses our users.

  4. chnage the default focus....

    when clicking the help ? in sharepoint, the cursor does not default to the field where text is required, this wastes an operation, in that I have to click into the field before typing, make the text field box the default focus for the cursor. this occurs on all 3 tabs in the help dialog.

    I want you to implement a file synchronization function between the two on the SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Bussiness clouds.

    Instead of synchronizing locally, I want to be able to synchronize files created and paranoid in SharePoint Online with OneDrive for Bussiness.
    I would like an early realization.

  6. Add support for RSS Feed Links

    I find the limitations on what can be put in a link box very frustrating. Mailto has finally been added but now I am finding that I need to use an RSS Feed link to allow users to subscribe, but I have no way of doing so.

  7. Delete the SPO access automatically when deleting the group from AD

    It would be great that the deleted group from AD could be automatically deleted in SharePoint as well. If so, it would make better improvement for efficiency. We currently need to delete SPO access manually when we delete the group in AD.

  13. Items in Recycle bin should be visible for users who deleted the items

    As current behavior of Recycle bin, users who can post or edit items are able to see the items that had been deleted by another users.
    I would like you to implement a feature to block another users from viewing the items deleted by others. I believe that making deleted items visible only for the users who actually deleted them would be better to improve information security management.

  14. follower

    In the SharePoint site usage page "_layouts/15/siteanalytics.aspx?view=19" it would be good to have the number of users following the site. This information is not available anywhere but it's very important in a corporate context.
    For an Hub site it would be good to have the number of followers of the Hub and the aggregated number of followers of the sites associated to the hub (nice to have)

  15. Add checkbox to site/URL rename feature to disable the redirect option

    When renaming a site URL a redirect site is left in its place. Where we need to reuse the URL we need to use PowerShell to delete the redirect site. It would be ideal to include a 'disable redirect' option in the site URL rename feature to stop the redirect being created. As a SharePoint Admin for a large organisation I'm not also the Global Admin meaning I need to organise for a Global Admin to delete the redirection via PowerShell.

  17. link to a web part on the same page

    I would like the ability to link to all different web parts not just news web parts. If the page is long it would be great to have some quick links at the top of the page when you could quickly go to different Quick Link Web Parts which expand on that topic

  18. Make it easier to edit multiple views

    When editing (i.e. adding visible columns) several (or MANY) views, the process is pretty painful. It would be great to have ONE page where we can set up a view, then something like checkboxes where we can apply those changes to any other (or all other) views that we want to, rather than having to do this one view at a time.

    スムーズなライブ イベントを実現するためには、ネットワーク帯域やライブ イベントにかかるセッション数を予め確認し、調整していく必要があると考えます。

    しかしながら、Microsoft Stream のライブ イベントに要するネットワーク帯域とセッション数に関する情報がなく、どのような基準でサービスを開始すればよいのか判断に困っています。

    利用環境に依存する内容とは承知しておりますが、一般的な基準となるサンプル データがあるとサービスの利用にあたり非常に助けになります。
    We think that checking and adjustment of network bands and session counts beforehand is required in order to implement a live event smoothly.

    However, there is no information regarding the network bands and session counts required for Microsoft Stream live events, thus it is difficult to determine what the starting criteria will be for the service.

    We understand that this content is completely dependent on the environment used, but having…
