  4. Activity log of file copy from SPO to OD

    When copy the file in SPO and move it to OneDrive, Office 365 SCC alert policy won’t be triggered so we don’ get any alert email. This is because copying and pasting a file between SPO and OD is not the activity covered in audit log. So please include this activity in the audit log and send an alert if this activity is detected.

  5. SharePoint folder and file list with user column/info

    On SharePoint online export to excel give you a list of folders and files, it will be very useful if a user column is provided to list users who have access to files and folders. If a folder/file is shared with 7 users, there should be 7 rows for each user. The option can be given on export to excel option to export with user or just files and folders list

  6. Create Policy to 'Mark' files for Deletion

    It would save a lot of SharePoint admins a lot of trouble if you were to be able to turn on a Policy that 'Marks' items for deletion, rather than outright deleting them.

    Allow users to mark items for deletion, as well as unmark them.
    Set the time period to keep the data before initiating the deletion.
    1 day, 3 days, 7 days etc. Maybe even make it a custom fill in.

    Allow SharePoint Admins to confirm deletion before the time runs out.
    When the Deletion time period runs out, files are deleted.

    Allow sending of a notification to the…

  7. Multiple sites to be selected for eDiscovery hold

    Currently we can select only one site each for the eDiscovery hold. But I want to select multiple site at once for the hold list. If there are multiple site URLs, it is inefficient to selecting each site, so I would like to select multiple.

  8. oversight function of external sharing of information

    While sharing with external users can happen at SharePoint level, document folder level or even just a file, this is lack of oversight function that a readable report can be generated to tell who are the external users and what information is opened to them. The closest I can get is for Sharepoint only where I can download a list to give me the guest user from Azure Directory. If folder or file being shared by anyone in the organization, there is no effective way to see or analyse.

  11. Office 365 retentiontion policy applied to shrepoint site needs reporting on how many documents are being deleted by policy

    Office 365 retention policy deletes data in sharepoint as planned which is good, but there is no reporting around how many documents are deleted by policy due to expiry. This is very important to understand deletion trend.

  12. Download Deleted Site Collection

    We need a way to download deleted sites collections via a couple of methods:
    1) eDiscovery
    2) ShareGate

    Currently neither of these products can connect to the sites in the recycle bin of the sharepoint admin center. There are legal needs for this use case.

    We have set the search box at the top of web parts to be hidden by default. The act of making this visible is currently not shown in audit logs.
    Therefore, whether it be by having it show in the logs, or by some other method, please add a way to check which user made the search box visible, and when they did it.

  15. Automatically tag new folders and items in Document Library with retention label if a retention policy is applied.

    Currently, folders are not automatically tagged with a retention label if a policy is applied. The policy is successfully applied once items are added to the folder, however the folder and items do not display whether or not a retention label is applied unless an admin manually applies a retention label to a folder or item. This seems to be by design, perhaps to address making retention labels "invisible", but creates unnecessary confusion for the admin. If an option could be added to tag folder when policy is applied to the policy itself in Compliance Admin Center > Policies >…

    ファイルへの総アクセス数が確認できる方法の実装を希望します。

    Currently since the “Popularity trend” function has been discontinued, in order to check how many accesses have been made to files, you can use the audit logs but depending on your plan you can only check the last 90 day or 1-year period, and not the total number of accesses that have been made to any given file. Please add a way to check the total number of accesses made to files.

  20. Register page comment activities in audit log

    We would like comments activities to be saved in audit log.

    We faced an issue on our intranet.
    We had a news on salary increase on which some employees made some comments. For some reasons some hard comments disappeared and we don't know why. Users had feeling about a censure which was not the case.
    We tried to retrieve the comments activity to see who has deleted these comments but it's not registered in Audit log. Today we don't know what happened.
    Comments on hot news on an intranet can be very sensitive information.
    Please, add this in possibility in…
