  2. OneDrive Shareable Links Password protection enforcement for admins

    At present as an admin, you can enforce features like expiry date, etc when sharing links via OneDrive. I'd like the option to enforce the password option for our users

  3. The 5000 threshold should not apply when saving a list as a template without content!

    We are unable to save a document library as a template without content and are getting the 5000 threshold error message. Although the library has 37 000 items this should be absolutely irrelevant when saving a list/library as a template! Surely the list definition (including columns, views, etc.) have nothing to do with how many items are in the list! There are similar occasions when we run into the 5000 list error when it should be irrelevant - as the 5000 limit is a hard wall your customers run into I suggest Microsoft develop a way to log errors to…

  4. SPO Information Management Policy does not support custom fields

    We noticed that the SPO Information Management Policy is not taking effect on the custom fields created for list. It seems that it only supports the pre-defined fields, which are not the ones that we want. We followed the steps in “Create a policy for a list, library or folder (location-based retention policy)” in https://support.office.com/en-us/article/create-and-apply-information-management-policies-eb501fe9-2ef6-4150-945a-65a6451ee9e9 and it is not showing our desired results. Please consider supporting the custom fields.

  6. Content Type Template - Support for .Xlsm

    At the moment .xlsm files are unsupported for Content Type Document Templates. Could we please have support to have .xlsm files as custom document template types?

  7. A common URL for the Admin Center, e.g. https://admin.sharepoint.com

    The SharePoint Online Admin Center is located at https://[tenant]-admin.sharepoint.com. This URL is unique for every tenant and makes documenting and communicating the URL difficult to do when you don't know the specific tenant.

    Instead, a URL such as https://admin.sharepoint.com that either loads the Admin Center or redirects to the correct Admin Center for the tenant (with the appropriate sign-in when required) would solve this problem and make accessing the admin center easy and straight forward.

  9. Add API to Create Tenant Wide App Catalog

    There are currently no APIs to create App Catalogs at the Tenant level, just at the Site Collection level. It would be extremely useful to be able to create tenant scopes App Catalogs.

  11. Sync the profile information of inactive users

    User profile information cannot be updated if the user is determined as an inactive user in Site Collection when updating the profile information in SharePoint Online.

    It is possible to set inactive user information as an active user with cmdlet in SharePoint Server, but there is no such feature in SPO.

    If you want to set an inactive user as an active user, you have to add a permission individually in SPO and there is no way to do so with Windows PowerShell cmdlet. As a result, you don’t have efficient management.

    So, I would like to efficiently manage the…

  12. Change default Site Members Edit rights back to Contribute

    There is a fundamental flaw in the permissions model in modern SharePoint team sites and Microsoft Teams. Site Members have been given Edit rights which allows them to delete or edit apps on the site. That is the role of the Site Owner. The Site Members must be given Contribute rights, (like it was in SharePoint 2010).

  13. Disable Allow members to share the site and individual files and folders in the Access Requests Settings by default for SharePoint Online si

    I would like you to add a feature to disable Allow members to share the site and individual files and folders in the Access Requests Settings in SPO. This option is currently enabled by default, so it would be great if the option is disabled by default when creating a site. And I would like you to implement a feature to restrict sharing sites by tenant-level.

  15. Allow a company to change the no-reply@sharepointonline.com to something similar to no-reply@<companyname>.com.

    Allow a company to change the no-reply@sharepointonline.com to something similar to no-reply@<companyname>.com. This allows for a more specific whitelisting/trusting and prevent legitimate SharePoint share requests from being quarantined. Currently the only option is to create a transport rule to bypass spam filtering for all no-reply@sharepointonline.com (according to Microsoft ticket).

  17. Fix "Retention" in Sharepoint and OneDrive

    Retention _should_ be an invisible experience for end users (see mail, Teams etc) however for OneDrive and SharePoint users that's not the case.
    1: Users cannot delete items!
    2: Since the forced implementation of "Version History" in O365 the retention (compliance) feature has become unusable. End users storage limits are rapidly hit and again they cannot remove items.

    Please, make retention work the way it should, invisible to the end user and not usability compromising.

  18. Control access to sharepoint via Country blocking.

    Would be nice to go in and allow or deny access to sharepoint via Country selection. I know Geo 2 IP locations are not 100% accurate. But If your a US based company, there is no need for any IP's registered to China or any other country to access your sharepoint/onedrive data.

  19. Allow CSP Delegated Admins to Manage Modern Sites

    As a CSP, receiving delegated admin access from a customer does not allow you to access modern site collections (Communication sites, modern Team Sites).

    Delegated admin allows you to access the SharePoint admin centers for both classic and modern sites. In classic, if a site collection has Company Administrator as a site collection admin, a CSP user with delegated admin has rights to the site collection.

    In the new SharePoint Admin Center, Company Administrator cannot be added as a site collection admin for modern sites, nor can anyone add my account as a site collection admin because my account is…
