  1. 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.

  2. Add SharePoint PowerShell Module to Azure Gallery

    It'd be great if you could include the latest Microsoft.Online.SharePoint.PowerShell Module in the Azure gallery so that it can easily be loaded and referenced by runbooks.

  5. Option to edit item names within a document library en masse

    Option to edit item names within a document library en masse


    ■Description(内容):
    ドキュメント ライブラリ内のアイテム名を変更するには、クイック編集機能でもアイテムごとに変更が必要なため工数が発生する。
    そのため、PowerShell コマンドレットなどで CSV ファイルに保存した内容を取り込み一括でアイテム名を変更可能な機能の拡充を要望します。

    In order to change item names within a document library, one needs to use the quick edit function on each item, one-by-one, which takes a lot of work.
    Therefore we would like to be able to make changes to item names in bulk using information read from a CSV file, applied via PowerShell cmdlets or such.

    Sites that were linked to Office 365 groups were retained due to Retention Policies when Office 365 groups were deleted.

  8. Bulk List Imports via PnP

    Could you please add the ability to bulk import records via PnP powershell? Example use cases would be:

    1) New-PnPList - New switch option which points to a CSV file and performs a mass load of data.

    2) Add-PnPListItem - New bulk process operation to send say 100+ records at a time in bulk. Attempting to use this command to process 15,000 records 1 line at a time is very slow.

  9. How to manage the version numbers set from the library version setting

    I would request you allow administrators to check the version numbers for SharePoint document libraries or lists with GUI or by PowerShell.
    Even if I change the version number from the default 500, the updated number won’t be shown on GUI, so I need to make sure the right version number by using GUI or PowerShell.

  12. Provisioing Site Collections using CSOM

    Enhance the CSOM API to allow for Site Collection Provisioning, where the quota values can be specified and the content database specified. The Tenant Admin API with correct configuration allows for on-prem. Site Collection provisioning however, this needs enhancement as the functionality for large scale Site Collection creation is insufficient.

  13. Enable Setting ConditionalAccessPolicy without Interactive PowerShell Session

    Currently, when running 'Set-SPOTenant -ConditionalAccessPolicy BlockAccess', the command prompts for user confirmation, which cannot be bypassed either using -Force or -Confirm:$false. This means that the command cannot be run non-interactively in a PowerShell script.

    Request that the cmdlet parameter be fixed so that it allows running in a non-interactive PowerShell session.

    Confirmed in the latest Microsoft.Online.SharePoint.PowerShell module, version 16.0.20212.12000.

  14. Align Powershell/Graph with SharePoint Admin Center

    Currently, SharePoint Powershell cannot pull the same information that is available in SharePoint Admin Center. To get more information, the account needs to have access as Site Collection Admin. However, looking for the same information is available in the Admin Center without extra privileges.

    E.g. All Site Collection Admins are available in Admin Center but only Primary Admin is returned with PowerShell. Interesting fact is that a new Admin can be added without additional access but can not be get.
    Now, Owners, Members and Visitors groups are also available in the console but not with PowerShell without having access to…

  15. Fix broken links after SPOSiteSwap

    After the SPOSiteSwap document links don't work anymore. The link has been updated but it is not correct so you get a 404 error.

    We want to archive the actual root site of our SharePoint. But the site contains a lot of linked documents. After the SPOSiteSwap the links won't work anymore and the SharePoint site is not usable anymore.

    Here is an example of the problem:
    We have a link stored in a SharePoint List.
    Before the SWAP the url is something like: https://tenant.sharepoint.com/:x:g/subsite/...
    After the SWAP the url is modified like:
    https://tenant.sharepoint.com/sites/archive/:x:g/subsite/...

    But this link does…

  16. PowerShell Sharepoint Online - Check Unique Permissions of users

    On the online sharepoint we are having multiple site collections for each country in our organization. And we wanted to give Unique Permission to each user to keep track of who has what. Now I wanted to run a report that takes all the information from each site collection the particular permission of each user on a specific Document Library. When I tried to do this, because of the inheritance is disabled, the script is not able to locate all the Document Library, users and role.
    Could you please make a way to find Unique Permissions in a Document Library…

  18. 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.

  19. Full-featured SharePoint Online Management Shell

    Full-featured SharePoint Online Management Shell
    If not a full suite of Cmdlets (currently SPO's ~35 plays On-Premises 730+), can we please at least have CSOM load all attributes of an object?
    On premises I can do:

    $Web = get-spweb <a rel="nofollow noreferrer" href="https://site/web">https://site/web</a>
    

    and get * properties with $web.AnyPropertyILike
    There isn't enough room here to paste script I need to do this in SPO

    Use a PowerShell cmdlet to find the size of an object in a site collection


    ■Description(内容):
    現在提供されている PowerShell コマンドレットでは、サイト コレクション全体の容量しか出力できず、各サブサイトやサイトコンテンツ、ファイル、ファイル バージョンの容量を確認することができない。
    管理者が容量を確認する際に、サイト ページへアクセスすることなくサイト コレクション内のオブジェクトをコマンドレットで確認できるよう、機能を提供してほしい。

    Currently existing PowerShell cmdlets can be used to output the total size of a site collection but cannot be used to find the sizes of individual subsites, contents, files or file versions.
    Please make it possible for administrators to find the sizes of objects in a site collection using a cmdlet instead of by having to access the site page.
