  3. 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?

  4. 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.

  5. Separate Move and Delete Permissions

    It would be good if you could give Move Files permission to User or Groups with out Giving them Delete Files permission. Currently you Have to give Delete Files Permission to give Move Files permission.

  6. SharePoint Administration

    Within the SharePoint Administration dashboard. Needs the ability to see all of the permissions for each site with the ability to remove user permissions, Add user permissions, remove folder permissions etc. This should be done all within the SharePoint admin. Currently I have to do this in many different places and it still doesn't seem to remove all of the permissions. I also have no way of seeing the folder/document shares set by some of the groups previous owners. This is a big issue.

  7. Hide the “Stay signed in” option on the verification code entry screen

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    確認コードを入力する画面の "サインインしたままにする" を非表示にしてほしい。
    Hide the “Stay signed in” option on the verification code entry screen


    ■Description(内容):
    特定のユーザーのリンクを使って共有すると、招待されたユーザーは確認コードの入力を求められます。
    この確認コードを入力する画面には "サインインしたままにする" チェック ボックスがあり、招待されたユーザーが任意で有効にすることができますが、招待したテナント側ではこの設定をコントロールすることができません。

    情報セキュリティの観点からは、外部ユーザーには毎回認証コードを要求したいと考えていますが、"サインインしたままにする" を有効にした外部テナントのユーザーは認証無しで共有アイテムにアクセスが可能な状態となるため、好ましくありません。

    確認コードを入力画面の "サインインしたままにする" を非表示にすることを要望します。
    非表示ができない場合は、管理センターの外部共有の設定で、確認コードを入力画面の "サインインしたままにする" の表示 / 非表示を設定する機能の提供を強く希望します。

    When sharing via a link with certain users, the invited user is asked to enter a verification code.
    On this code entry screen, there is a checkbox for “Stay signed in”, and while the invited users can check this arbitrarily, there is no way to control use of this from the tenant doing the inviting.

    From an information security standpoint, we would want to ask…

  8. Invitations from outside the organization

    Invitations from outside the organization


    ■Description(内容):
    現在外部とのやり取りはテナント内の設定に準拠するため、社外からの招待を受けないような制限を行うことができません。
    Microsoft Teams などの製品の普及により、社外とのやり取りが比較的容易に、コンパクトに行えます。
    しかしながら、セキュリティ上の観点から外部からの招待を制御したい際は現時点で要望に叶う制御は行えません。
    Microsoft Teams での会議時ファイルの共有を受けないように制御する方法や、外部の SharePoint Online にアクセスすることを制御するような機能が追加されることにより、もっと製品の利便性や信頼度が増すと感じます。
    該当機能の拡張を要望します。

    Currently, communication with external parties follows the settings within the tenant, so it is not possible to restrict external invitations.
    With the widespread adoption of products like Teams, it is possible to easily contact external parties.
    However, even though it is very important from a security perspective to restrict invitations from external sources, it is not possible to do so.
    Please add methods to prevent acceptance of files in meetings, and access to external SharePoints, in order…

  9. Add option to exclude admins from IP restrictions set in the SharePoint admin center

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    SharePoint 管理センターの IP アドレス制限にて、管理者は IP 制限の影響を受けない設定を追加希望
    Add option to exclude admins from IP restrictions set in the SharePoint admin center


    ■Description(内容):
    グローバル IP アドレスが変更になり、管理者含めたすべてのユーザーが SharePoint Online にアクセスできなくなった。
    SharePoint 管理センターにもアクセスできず、設定を直すことができないため、早急な対応につなげることが難しい。
    そのため、管理者ユーザーは IP 制限の影響を受けないような設定など、すぐに対処できるような機能を追加希望

    When our global IP was changed, all users including admins lost access to SharePoint Online.
    Since it was not possible to access the SharePoint admin center either, it was difficult to solve quickly.
    In order to allow issues like this to be resolved as soon as possible, please add a way to exclude administrators from the effects of IP restrictions.

  10. Ability to delete content from all SharePoint sites using content search

    Add the ability to delete content from all SP sites using content search. Currently, there is the ability to delete all emails that contain keywords using PowerShell by referencing the result of the content search however, not so much with anything outside emails. When performing a content search with everything except emails (SP sites, One Drive, Team Sites), the script fails, and MS support mentioned that there is no option to do a mass delete for SharePoint content.

    We would like to be able to restrict access to a site or library by users other than admins and owners on a temporary basis. It takes a lot of work to assign the relevant permissions to all the users whom we wish to prevent access by, so please add an option to temporarily prevent access by all users other than admins and owners.

  13. Ability to whitelist/blacklist individual Office 365 Connectors

    To prevent information leakage between services, SharePoint should allow an admin to whitelist/blacklist individual Office 365 Connectors.

    Lets assume you have lots of customer data in Dynamics, then you would like to prevent this information from leaking into SharePoint for compliance reasons (e.g. GDPR). SharePoint has a Dynamics Office 365 Connector that will allow this information leakage. You only have the option to disable all connectors or enable all connectors

  17. Keep name of something shared private in the invite email

    When you share or invite anyone to anything, it auto generates an email inviting them and include the name of what they're invited to. Normally, this makes sense, but it is a privacy violation if the name of the item is protected information.

    For example, if I have a folder titled with a patient's name and share it, an auto generated email, that is NOT encrypted or secure, is sent out with that person's name (the folder name) in the subject line. This is a HIPAA issue.

    Since sites on SharePoint Online have their access rights managed on a per-site basis, if you want to find which sites guest users have the rights to access, at present you have to look on each individual site’s user info list.
