  3. The sharing functionality to easily enable externaly users access to file needs to be moved into a top level menu.

    The sharing functionality to easily enable externally users access to files and set permissions needs to be moved into a top level menu. The ability to provide limited access to certain folders and functions within those folders is too hard.

    You should not have to create a user and member of an outlook group to provide basic sharing features that were too braod or narrow. This was very frustrating.

    Apparently the only way around this would be to change some settings in PowerShell which seemed counter intuitive to the core functionality of SharePoint.

    The work around for me was to…

  5. Wish to use OneDrive for Business synchronizing client within roaming profil

    I am using some roaming profiles since my users move within their facilities and they sign in with their own users' accounts from the PCs set in their destinations. Consequently, I would like to use a synchronizing client even in the roaming profiles we use because I want to operate the files on Cloud with IE browse no matter which PCs my users sign in with.

  7. Allow access to Developer Dashboard via PowerShell in SP2010 and Sp2013

    Allow cmdlets or create a web service document that would allow PowerShell to gather site data based on Developer Dashboard. Admins would love to build a dashboard showing current response times to specific high-profile sites, and developer dashboard does just that. The data that DD gathers would be perfect for a scheduled task to gather and present on a dashboard site.

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    サイト コレクションのアクセス権限を、ユーザー単位で付与できる Windows PowerShell コマンドレットを提供してほしい。
    Please provide Windows PowerShell commandlets to assign site collection access permissions to individual users


    ■Description(内容):

    Currently there are no Windows PowerShell commandlets provided to assign site collection access permissions to individual users. Management could be done in a more efficient way if Windows PowerShell commandlets can be used, so we hope such a feature can be provided.
