  3. ability to break inheritance permissions for group instead of list.

    ability to break inheritance permissions for group instead of list. In current scenario, if i need to allow a restricted user to view content on a list I must break permissions for that list, add every group that needs access along with the group with restricted access. why not just allow me to pinhole the group access to the list without all the extra steps.

  5. Idle session sign-out

    In the left pane of the new SharePoint admin center, under Policies, select Access control Idle session sign-out.
    You can define the auto sign-out from minutes until a day, but the pop-up notification can only be set from a minute to half-hour, and the behavior is that you will receive the pop-up after that much idle time and not when you have that time as remaining, which means that you can set as your users will be disconnected in a day, and will receive the pop-up for every idle minute, which doesn't make any sense.
    My request is to have…

  6. Allow more security exceptions to the Sharepoint IP restrictions to certain important users, specially for the admin

    It's useful to restrict the IP for Sharepoint connections (i.e. Work offices); but it could also be useful to add exceptions to the rule for certain users who you would like to prefer them not to find any restriction at all, for example, if the CEO of the company wants to work in his house, or in the train, and you don't want them to find any sort of problems. Plus, the admin should always have the possibility to be in this list (I.E. there's some fire that needs to be shutdown).

  7. Separate OneDrive and Sharepoint permissions

    Since OneDrive and Sharepoint share permissions, if we want to let one user share with one external user we have to open up our entire company intranet to all external users. We would like to handle sharepoint and onedrive permissions separately so we are able to manage security in different ways for both.

  9. Add an option to the AllowLimitedAccess Conditional Use setting to also apply to managed systems

    Currently the AllowLimitedAccess Conditional Use setting blocks the ability to download files from a Site from an unmanaged machine however machines that are domain joined or marked Compliant by Intune can. There are cases were we would like even managed systems to not be able download files but still be able to edit them in Office Online.

  10. Label or name an IP address or range on the Access control screen.

    I would like to have the ability to label or name an ip address or address range on the Access control screen. I currently have a ton of different IP addresses permitted to access SPO, yet I have no way of easily seeing what IP address corresponds to what user, etc.

  12. Disable auto checking "Share everything in this folder, even items with unique permissions"

    Please disable auto checking "share everything in this folder, even items with unique permissions" when providing people with access. It's often forgotten to uncheck it and that causes unwanted access to items with unique permissions.

  13. Trust Some Domains More Than Others

    When a business merger happens we want the businesses collaborating fast and we want to allow all staff to be able to share documents with this new family member, whilst at the same time restricting staff from sharing to other external domains. Some domains are more trust worthy than others. It would be good to allow a more open experience for some domains whilst being more restrictive for others.

  14. Support HSM certificates in SharePoint (for STS)

    SharePoint cannot use HSM based certificates for the Security Token Service. Allowing this type of certificates will increase the Security.

    SharePoint has to Export the private Key of the used certificates to allow distributing the certificates to all Servers in the farm. This is not possible with HSM certificates.

  15. Filter peoplepicker at Site Collection Level

    Usually we have the requierement to isolate SharePoint sites from specific Business Lines. This means no allow the Site Owners to give permissions or Share content with some AD groups.

    Currently peoplepicker filter is only possible at Web Application level (ActiveDirectoryCustomFilter), but it means we are forced to create different URL's to have an effective segregation (no peoplepicker search results --> No permissions / share given).

    To be able to manage an effective audience segregation without having multiple URL's (Web Applications), it should be great to be able to filter peoplepicker at Site Collection Level

  16. Not to show the O365 sign-in prompt even when accessing to the private site URL on a mobile device

    I strongly suggest you hiding the sign-in prompt to put user credentials when accessing to the private site URL on a mobile device. With the same scenario on PC, no credential prompt will be shown but redirected to the no-access page instead. It would be great if the page only says “access required” and no credential prompt shown because I don’t want people to know what service we are using.

  17. Members modification from SPO Admin Center

    Need an option to add members to a O365 Group just as we can currently add administrators. Right now, as an administrator of SPO, I have add myself as an admin to the group, click the URL for the group then add members from the members link. Should be the same way as adding administrators (right blade/side bar).

  19. I need to be able to turn off double sharing

    Maybe this is already possible, if so please point me in the right direction.

    We're looking into using SharePoint as part of our Office 365 E3 plan. I tested the share functionality today, the idea being we may have specific folders we want to share with clients, that they may be able to view or to edit depending on the needs of the team.

    So I tested it:

    Folder owner shares to a non-Office 365 email address ("specific people").

    The non-Office 365 email address receives the link to the folder, and can log in and access as required, and can't…

  20. get secondary admninistrator for all users profile

    Hi,

    It will be great to have a button, or powershell command to get all secondary administrator for all Users profile.

    Because as a global admin, I'm able to give myself access by clicking on the "Acces File" button in Office365 User profile.

    If I need this access temporarly , great, but how te remove myself from all users profile I checked a day clicking "Access File"?

    Regards,
