  2. Make activities to be saved more longer than 90 days

    You can search for activities that have run within 90 days in the Office 365 audit log, but other company’s products can be saved more than five years.
    So I really want that activities can be saved more longer instead of only 90 days in Office 365.

  3. the messy code occur when download the Japanese name folder

    On Modern UI, a function of download folder has been added to document library, but when you download a folder with a Japanese name from IE, the folder’s name change to messy code sometimes.
    It does not happen to the other browsers.
    I hope that the messy code issue cannot occur even when I download the folder with a Japanese name from IE.

  4. 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.

  7. 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.

  10. PPT file is changing "created time" automatically

    When uploading a PPT file from Internet Explorer, the “created time” will be displayed the time which in the image’s properties for a while.
    But after a while, when I confirm the file from “Open with Explorer” in the library, the “created time” of the PPT file is overwritten by the file’s uploaded time.
    It would be really helpful if the PPT file can be remained to the time which in the image’s properties by “Open with Explorer”.

  11. About redirection

    The public site will end until March 2018, but it will continue to operate on WiX.
    In addition, it would be really helpful if it can be redirect and access Wix site directly when searching on Google and accessing searched results--the public site which created on SharePoint.

  12. Allow Library owner to turn off "link" in New menu on Document library in New Experience

    The Link choice in the new menu for a Document library in the "New Experience" should be optional at the Library owner's discretion. There may indeed be times that you absolutely don't want other links to be included in the experience.

    Requesting a feature to change the background color for "Text above title" in modern UI sites


    ■Description(内容):
    モダン UI サイトを利用しています。
    ページタイトルの上部の "タイトルの上のテキスト" を利用しているのですが、サイト全体の外観設定の色を自動的に読み込む動作となっているため、すべてのサイトでこの文字列の背景色が統一されてしまっています。
    この "タイトルの上のテキスト" の背景色を自由に変更できる機能を要望します。​
    We are using the modern UI site.
    We are using "Text above title" on the top of the page title, but as the color for the appearance setting of the entire site is being loaded automatically, the background color for this text has been standardised for all sites.
    Thus we hope for a feature to freely change the background color for "Text above title".

  15. Allow us to show the specified results in top view in Modern UI

    I would like you to allow us to customize to show specified search results to the top in modern experience. If it becomes possible, it would be easy for users to catch the specified contents within the multiple search results. The reason why we are asking this is we cannot customize the search results based on searching key words in Modern UI.

  18. copy link using DocumentID

    When DocumentIDs are enabled on a site collection, it would be useful if the links generated would use the DocumentID link by default. The whole purpose behind them is so that documents can move around, yet a link still works, yet any of the Copy Link/Share options appear to default to using the file name and its path.
