  1. Set Global Policys for Sharepoint to be stricter than Onedrive

    Want to allow staff to share with anyone with the link from their onedrive will limiting staff to share only with specific people in group sharepoints. As well would like to whitelist specific users who are allowed to bybass the default share policy's so they can share without an expiration date.

  4. IP download restriction

    I would like to restrict downloading files by using IP address. Accessing SPO site can be restricted by IP but I want to restrict downloading files only. Please enable IP restriction for downloading files.

  5. Online only file access through the OneDrive client

    Accessing SharePoint online files in an online only state while working through the OneDrive app.

    So the folders can be traversed in the file browser and opened and edited in desktop clients (word, excel, etc.), but once the program is closed the local copy is cleared immediately.

  6. Access to OneDrive admin center for global reader

    Allow global admin role read access to OneDrive admin center.
    Seems counter-intuitive that the global reader has access to SharePoint admin center but no access to OneDrive

  7. Fine grained permissions applied to SharePoint Online App-Auth

    We have written an application that access SharePoint CSOM apis to do the following:

    Get sharepoint users and groups in a site collection.
    
    Get sites in a site colleciton
    Get lists in a site collection
    Get role assignments/definitions
    Get list items in a site collection.
    Get changes since a given time in a site collection.

    When we access SharePoint online using app-auth (oauth or azure private key), we are forced to give Full admin access to the app in order to do these things.

    But when we user a normal service account (username/password) we have access to the fine-grained permissions…

  9. Unique Permissions field/property in ListItem object type

    Please have a hidden field/property for the ListItem object named "UniquePermissions" or something so that while fetching the list items we can filter based on this field/properrty. We have SharePoint Online Document libraries having more than 100,000 items and to run a Unique Permission report using PowerShell takes huge amount of time and most of the times it is throttled and connection is ended. It would be great if the existing fields "SharedwithDetails" or "SharedwithUsersId" be used for this , don't know what purpose they solve currently as some random information is retured in that field.

    The field can be…

    In SharePoint Online’s external sharing settings, we have configured it so that for certain domains, external users cannot be invited.
    Currently, the restrictions on the specified domain will also affect the assignment of access permissions to existing guest users.
    Please add a warning message that appears for these users telling them they can no longer access items when they have been invited, and make it…

  11. Allow users to edit lists/libraries BUT not the content in the site itself

    I don't want my users to be able to Edit the SharePoint site itself, however, they need to be able to edit lists/libraries. I don't want to break inheritance for every site (as there are a lot of them). Can we please make this an existing option in the Permission levels?

  12. prevent users from downloading malicious files

    Please make this on by default

    Set-SPOTenant -DisallowInfectedFileDownload $true

    or if it is, update the docs
    or at least make it part of the UI rather than powershell

  13. Audit your tenant for Explicit Shares of "Everyone" or the "Everyone Except External Users"

    There should be a way to find out where the permission sets of "Everyone" or the "Everyone Except External Users" are explicitly granted as a permission in a tenancy.

  14. Website-/Listenberechtigung - eigene Elemente darf man bearbeiten, fremde nicht

    Es gibt bereits eine Berechtigung in der SharePoint App "Chat" - hier ist es möglich eigene Elemente zu posten, zu bearbeiten und zu löschen! Aber es ist nicht möglich, dass jemand meinen Beitrag bearbeitet etc. oder dass ich einen fremden Beitrag bearbeite. Diese bereits vorhandene Berechtigung sollte auch auf andere Seiten, Listen, etc. übertragbar sein. Es gibt leider keine vergleichbare Einstellung unter den verschiedenen Berechtigungsstufen.
    Gutes Beispiel ist hier eine interne "Verkaufsplattform" bei der User ihre Dinge verkaufen möchten, andere User sollen diesen Beitrag natürlich nicht ändern können!
    Freue mich, wenn die Berechtigung global verwendbar ist! Sie ist ja bereits…

  15. allow to copy /move files with limit access to SharePoint

    When you only have limited access to a SharePoint Site, you are also not able to copy / move Files stored in a library. Please enable this so you can at least copy / move Files to another SiteCollection / OneDrive

  19. Control Sharepoint guest access separately from One Drive access

    At the Admin level, we would like to restrict our SharePoint site access/sharing so that it does NOT ALLOW 'Anyone' access level but, for One Drive for Business, we would like to ALLOW 'Anyone' access.

    From what I can tell, this is not possible because in order for One Drive to be set to allow 'Anyone', SharePoint must also be set at that permissive level.

    Please decoupled the access controls for SharePoint sites and One Drive to allow for them to be set independently.

    Anyone else see the value in this?

  20. Alert me when item is shared

    As a user I would like the ability to setup an alert when a folder, file, or children items are shared within a document library. This will help us keep an eye on sensitive information that can be shared but should be done so with cautiously.
