  1. Protecting sensitive information in the time taken for a DLP policy to detect it

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    DLP ポリシーが機密情報を検出するまでの間の保護機能
    Protecting sensitive information in the time taken for a DLP policy to detect it


    ■Description(内容):
    現在の動作として、DLP ポリシーを設定しても、機密情報を検出するまでの数分間は、ファイルがサイトのメンバーから閲覧可能な状態となる。
    この空白期間に機密情報を保護できるような機能の拡充を希望します。

    Under the current behavior, even if a DLP policy is set up, in the few minutes it takes to detect sensitive information, it is possible for site members to view those files.
    Please expand on this functionality so that sensitive information is protected during this period, too.

  2. Invite specific guest access setting

    If you want to manage guest access permission, you may use permission levels setting to do so. But here you can grant guest users sharing access. I want just to invite the guest user, I don’t want to grant sharing access

  3. Exclusion settings for external users in DLP policies

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    DLP ポリシーにおける 組織外ユーザーの除外設定について
    Exclusion settings for external users in DLP policies


    ■Description(内容):
    現状 SharePoint Online の DLP ポリシーにおいて、組織外の特定のドメインをポリシーに対し除外設定する設定が提供されていない。
    組織外のユーザーであっても、機密情報を含めたデータのやり取りを行うシナリオがあるため、組織外の特定のドメインのみ、DLP ポリシーの対象外とする機能の実装を要望します。

    Currently in SharePoint Online DLP policies, there is no way to exclude specified external domains from policies using exclusions settings.
    Even if there are external users, there are scenarios where data containing confidential information is exchanged, and therefore I would like you to add some way to exclude specified external domains from the DLP policy.

    ■Title(件名):
    検索結果から URL を除外する機能について
    Regarding the function to exclude URLs from search results


    ■Description(内容):
    "検索結果から URL を除外" する設定を行った際、次回のクロールが行われると再度検索結果に表示されてしまいます。

    また、どの URL を設定しているか確認できるように一覧表示で確認ができるよう希望します。

    When using the “Exclude URL from search results” setting, the URL will once again become searchable the next time it is crawled.
    Therefore, please add a way to set URLs that we do not want to have appear in search results.
    Also, please add a way to check which URLs this is set for as a list.

  7. User permissions to edit and delete data on OneNote

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    Microsoft OneNote 上で任意のユーザーがデータの編集や削除を制限する機能について
    User permissions to edit and delete data on OneNote


    ■Description(内容):
    現在のMicrosoft OneNote では、文章の編集や削除を制限する機能がありません。
    そのため、悪意のあるユーザーや管理者が意図しないユーザーにより、OneNoteの記載データを削除や改ざんされる可能性がございます。
    さらなる製品の利便性向上のため任意のユーザーがデータの編集や削除を制限する機能の拡充を要望します。

    On the current version of OneNote, there is no permission for editing and deleting text.
    Therefore, there exists a possibility that users with malicious intent, or users that the administrator does not expect, may unexpectedly or accidentally delete or falsify data recorded in OneNote.
    In order to improve the system, please add controls over which users’ editing and deleting of data.

  9. Permissions to change the site title

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    サイトのタイトルを変更する権限について
    Permissions to change the site title


    ■Description(内容):
    モダンサイトに対し、サイトのタイトルはサイトの所有者のみ変更が可能な動作を確認しています。

    ユーザーには閲覧権限や投稿権限等を割り当て、サイトの管理ができる権限を割り当てない運用を行っているケースがあります。時には一部のユーザーにサイトの管理を任せたい場合もあります。

    しかし、対象のユーザーをサイトの所有者に追加すると、必要以上の情報の閲覧・管理ができてしまうため、サイトのタイトルが変更できる権限の実装を希望します。

    We have confirmed that for Modern sites, only the site owner can change the site title.

    In some cases, users are assigned the permissions to view, post, etc., but not the permissions to manage the site. There are situations where we want to let some users manage the site.

    However, if those specific users are added to site owners, they can manage and view information more than what is necessary, so we hope that permissions to change the site title will be implemented.

  11. Allow more than 5000 characters for "Enter IP addrsses or ranges" from SharePoint Admin, Policies, Access Control. Network Location

    Allow more than 5000 characters for "Enter IP addrsses or ranges" from SharePoint Admin, Policies, Access Control. Network Location. Also correct the error text it gives when exceeding 5000 characters which is "Value cannot be longger than 5000'. Note the two g's the word 'longger' when it should be 'longer' or 'greater than'

  15. Moderate internal or external share requests or at least allow us to add an AD Group that allows internal or external sharing.

    Moderator option:
    1. An option would exist to force a moderator approval when internal and/or external files are shared. Would be great if you can specify a source AD group (or everyone) that requires this moderation.


    1. Set moderators. Allow managers assigned to those employees (or an AD Group) to moderate the internal and/or external share requests. So when the employee shares a file with an internal and/or external recipient, depending on your setting, the manager (or person's in an AD Group selected) receive an e-mail with the internal/external share approve or deny request.

    If this can't happen, at VERY LEAST…

  16. Modern site can not restrict sharing or files downloading per site

    We would like to have the ability to restrict sharing or files downloading on a per site basis in the Modern site temple.

    Currently if you create the site from a Classic template in the Classic Admin center, then you can restrict files to View Only and limit sharing.

    However, if you create a site with the modern template then you can not effectively disable sharing or downloading using the same View Only settings.

    This almost seems like a bug, or the Modern site is limited.

  17. Fix permissions for Site Usage on modern sites

    Site Usage is always enabled in the Settings menu no matter what permissions are assigned (view site usage and statistics is OFF in permissions). Users are able to access and edit all site assets via the links in Site Usage on moderns sites, even though all permissions for access have been turned off.

  18. limit access to a specific SharePoint site

    Granular security access policy for limiting access to SPO sites should be exposed in admin interface to assign conditional access policies via GRANULAR POLICY and not granular configuration of site settings

  19. Edit Pages and Edit Documents Permissions

    Editing site pages should not be lumped in with the ability to edit documents. Just because I want to allow someone to update an Excel spreadsheet does not mean I want them to have the ability to change the site's home page or any page for that matter.

  20. Put back People and Groups link in Modern Site settings

    Please put back the users and authorizations link in Modern site settings !

    The only way to manage groups in Modern is to remember layouts/15/people.aspx and then clic on the groups link in the vertical navigation bar or remember the link layouts/15/groups.aspx.

    It would be awsome for site owner to have those links in the site settings page. Of course we must teach them how to use groups instead of giving authZ to an individual.
