  1. when changing channel’s name on Team page

    Even I changed the channel’s name on Teams page, the changing cannot be reflected on Document Library.
    For example, I create a channel named “ABC” on Teams page and the channel folder with the same name “ABC” is created automatically.
    But after I change channel’s name from “ABC” to “123” on Teams page, it cannot reflect to Document Library and it still remain “ABC”, and vise versa.
    It might cause confusion if channel’s name on Teams is not linked up with folder’s name on Document Library.
    It would be really helpful if this function can be improved and make the…

    I want to implement the “edit page” feature on the Modern UI for libraries and lists. Also, I want to implement a button on the Classic UI which can temporarily switch to Modern UI.

  7. The Chart of survey result

    I created a survey which multiple choices A, B, C can be selected.
    But the chart of survey result cannot be calculated separately by A, B, C, it only can calculated by AB, AC, BC etc.
    It would be really helpful if the chart of survey result can be calculated separately.

  9. Logo image cannot be displayed after applied a site template with contents

    After I applied a site template with contents, it has still recognized as a former URL in the “Insert Logo” column on the page of settings for “Title, Description, and Logo”.
    Therefore when the users who have no authority to the former site try to access this site, the logo image cannot be displayed.
    It would be really helpful if the URL in the “Insert Logo” column can be recognized as one from the template destination instead of the former one.

    When SharePoint cannot talk to configuration database, provide a customized error message rather than the default Runtime Error.

  13. Allow administrators to create a custom Access Denied message

    When a user tries to open a page, document, or site, it is possible that they will receive the access denied message. The end user will generally request access without thinking twice. This makes it difficult for an administrator to determine if the user should get access or not.

    It would be great if admins could create a custom access denied page or message to be displayed when a user without proper access tries to open a page, document, library, or site. This way we can hopefully eliminate a majority of the unnecessary access requests.

  14. About External users login (English follows Japanese)

    外部ユーザのログインについて
    管理センター画面にて、[外部ユーザーは、招待状の送信先と同じアカウントでの共有への招待を受け取る必要があります] との設定項目を有効化または無効化操作はできますが、テナント単位ではなく、サイト コレクション単位でこの設定項目を設定可能にしてほしい

    About External users login
    On the Administration Center page, It is able to enable or disable the settings “External users must receive an invitation to share with the same account as the invitation destination”.
    But I cannot configure this settings on per-site collection basis, only per tenant.
    It is really helpful if the settings can be configured on per-site collection basis.

  15. Malware detection file quantity limit

    An error appears when you open or download a virus-infected file on the end-user side, they are aware of that the file has been infected.
    But the administrator cannot confirm which files were infected by the virus or how many files were infected.
    It would be really helpful if there is a report function that can confirm which file has been infected with the virus and how many files were infected.

  16. Please make the menu fixed

    It would be really helpful if the width of the menu can be fixed even after you changed the Windows size in SharePoint site.
    At the present time, if you narrow the window, the menu item will be hidden in [...].
    Please fix the width of the menu in the SharePoint site, slide to the side with the scrollbar, and make the menu option can be selected.

  17. Disable SharePoint Designer for whole Tenant

    There is currently no way to disable the Sharepoint Designer for the whole tenant. The only way by design is to iterate through all SiteCollections and disable the SP Designer settings there.

    This is much uncomfortable. Please provide a way like OnPrem to disable it at webapplication level.

  19. Office 365 group site

    It would be really helpful if the columns of “Storage” and “Resource Quota” on Group site can be set at the beginning of site creation, just like on Site Collection.
    I know that the 2 columns can be corrected by using PowerShell after the site was created, but I do not prefer to correct it later one by one.
    It would be really appreciate if this function can be improved.

  20. Add posibility for updating/deleting app registration

    After you register an app using appregnew.aspx there is no way to update the data. If you make an error during registration or if the app domain changes you have to register a new app (with new ClientId).

    It possibilty to update the data while keeping the existing ClientId would be very usefull
