  1. Onedrive security feature for Business

    Hi guys!

    I would like to recommend a security feature which is to control when the colleagues are able to access the shared folders. Example from 9am - 6pm, Mondays - Fridays.

    This is due to company's business requirement.

    With Regards,

    Stephen
    Network Administrator

  2. Delete Permission Groups in Bulk

    We run a PPM system that uses SharePoint Online and Project Online - the system creates 6 permission groups for every project created - even test projects where a SharePoint site is associated with it. Now for us to clean up the groups - there appear to be only 2 options: remove them one by one (very tedious) or remove them using scripting (PowerShell?). I feel like there should be an easier way to view the list of groups and allow you to click-select multiple groups to delete them (or perform similar actions). This is how it works when you…

  3. Security and Compliance site permission change alerts

    It would be great to be able to target specific site collections for permission change event alerting in the Security and Compliance Center.

    Currently right now you have to target the entire SharePoint Online tenant if you want to configure alerts around Site Collection Admin added and SharePoint site permissions change events which might not be required outside of sites that contain confidential data.

  5. When using forced check out/in, it's completely impossible to re-arrange a folder structure without checking out files individually

    As the title explains, when using forced check out/in, it's completely impossible to re-arrange a folder structure without checking out files individually. And yes, I do know you can bulk check out files IF:


    • you revert to the classic interface

    • you select the files inside every folder

    But this clearly shows it's virtually impossible to change a folder structure with let's say 50 sub folders each containing hundreds or thousands of files given that you need to go in and out of every folder multiple times.

    Disabling the forced check out/in is for many a big no-no as that functionality…

  8. Web App Policy

    There are support administrators that require access to be admins on all One Drive for Business sites that should NOT have access to SharePoint administration or any other SharePoint team sites.

    Likewise, there are support administrators that will need to have access to all SharePoint team sites that should not have access to SharePoint Administrator or the One Drive for Business sites.

    The only way to achieve this today is by scheduling a daily script to run against the target URLs to add the needed groups to the site collection administrators group, to ensure that newly created sites have the…

    Gente, buenas tardes. En los reportes de uso sería una buena idea poder contar con la información que manejan los usuarios externos, a los cuales nosotros les dimos los permisos para poder ver, modificar, etc.
    A su vez, ademas de eso, sería bueno poder contar con el detalle de uso de cada subsite y no solo del sitio principal.
    Saludos.

  15. Keep username attached to an approved page when using publishing site with workflow

    When a site is created using "Publish Site with Workflow", after a page is approved the modified by field says "system account" instead of the actual user who approved the page. This has been an issue in our 2010 farm as well. Would love to see this represented as the actual last modified username.

  16. External audit and access shared documentation

    I think it is necessary to create a report with documentation that has been shared with external users. Currently from the support department I indicate that Office 365 does not include this type of audit

  17. Identify Export events in logs as exports rather than searches in the logs

    Have Export events identified in the log as "Export" rather than current event type of "Search".

    Based on running the report and then going back to the eDiscovery site and looking through the exports I have determined that I think entries in log as search events are exports that is not apparent. It would be much easier if we could filter on Item Type = Site Collection AND Event = Export

  19. DLP Exception Reporting

    Provide reporting to identify where users have chosen to allow an exception to DLP policies.

    Even better would be to also define an approval workflow (or just a notification at minimum) to trigger immediately when an override is initiated.

  20. Please add "Guest" to reporting options so admins can review usage analytics of SharePoint Sites.

    It would be helpful to have an option to create reports on "guest" usage of SharePoint Sites. Admins can easily see the licensed users, but there aren't really any options for 'guest" users.

    It would also be helpful to have the ability to review these reports for 30+ days as opposed to the current 7 day restrictions.
