  7. MySite Cleanup Powershell commands

    The current MySite Cleanup process is a black-box and often fails for various reasons. If it doesn't find a manager or secondary contact, the job just stops.

    Option 1: Fix the black box so it sets the MySite deletion timer even when there is no manager or secondary contact.

    Option 2: Create commands enabling admin to assign a delegate and start the timer on site deletion, or just start the deletion timer

    Option 3: Expand the Site Closure policy to include the criteria option for 'MySite Owner no longer a valid user'

  9. Make SharePoint Online Management Shell available via PowerShellGet / PowerShellGallery

    Currently, SharePoint Online Management Shell needs to be installed by downloading it from Microsoft Downloads and is installed as a binary.

    Many new Modules are available through PowerShellGet (powershellgallery.com) and therefore we are able to install and update them from within PowerShell Host, e.g.:

    Install-Module -Name AzureAD
    Update-Module -Name AzureAD

    This should be possible for SharePoint Online Management Shell as well, so it is easier to keep the Modules up to date, e.g.:

    Install-Module SharePointOnlineManagementShell
    Update-Module SharePointOnlineManagementShell

  12. Provide a powershell or csom interface to allow files that have been uploaded but not checked in to be checked in en masse by administrator

    There is a feature called "Manage files with no checked in version." But this requires the admin to check individual files and take ownership and then check in the files. There needs to be a way for admins/SCAs to programmaticly take ownership and check in files. Currently once the admin has taken ownership, then a PowerShell script can be run, but the take ownership portion is manual.

  13. the picture automatic switching function is disabled

    Following the release of the Office 365 CDN, the picture automatic switching function is disabled by default on “Picture Library Slideshow Web Part”.
    If you want to use the picture automatic switching function, you need to register the “Picture Library” r in Office 365 CDN.
    But using PowerShell command is the only way to register in the library.
    It would be really helpful if there’s a way to register library in Office 365 CDN from UI.

  14. SET-SPOSite -NewUrl

    In PowerShell looks like there is a "-NewUrl" parameter but you can't be changed this really is a problem when you manage many site collections, is there any workaround for this?

  15. Expand SPO Powershell Capability

    Current PowerShell cmdlets available to administer SharePoint Online don't have enough functionality at or below the Site Collection level.

    I would like to see more of the on-prem cmdlet functionality migrated to SPO to be able to gather configuration data, site hierarchy, site / document library permissions, and other such information to quickly build documentation and reports.

    Having to learn and use CSOM seems like a step backwards.

  20. How awesome would it be if we were allowed to export a SharePoint environment's configuration into a PowerShell script allowing you to easil

    How awesome would it be if we were allowed to export a SharePoint environment's configuration into a PowerShell script allowing you to easily rebuild your environment. Let's assume I spend 2 hours configuring my SharePoint farm using the GUI, it'd be awesome if I could somehow, within Central Administration, export my environment's configuration (Web Apps, Service Apps, services Enabled, etc). I know this is a long stretch and would probably very hard to accomplish, but it'd be awesome.
