  2. 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.

  4. 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?

  5. 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).

  6. How to manage the version numbers set from the library version setting

    I would request you allow administrators to check the version numbers for SharePoint document libraries or lists with GUI or by PowerShell.
    Even if I change the version number from the default 500, the updated number won’t be shown on GUI, so I need to make sure the right version number by using GUI or PowerShell.

  7. Hide the file name on photos in SharePoint photo library

    I need to be able to hide the file name on photos in SharePoint photo library thumbnail view. Right now, it cuts off the bottom part of each thumbnail picture.

  9. Regional Time Zone Management Capability

    Reported timestamp properties in SharePoint Admin Center for Site Listings are reflected in Pacific (PT UTC-8) Time Zone, which differs to reported Time Stamps in other areas of O365 Tenant Admin areas (e.g. Audit Log Searches, eDiscovery, etc...).

    Seeking interest consideration to allow managing the Regional Time Zone settings for all and / or individual Tenant Admin areas to reflect consistent Time Zone timestamps and support accurate reporting or triaging activities.
    This is to help ensure minimal confusion or discrepancy during compilation and review of timestamp information when taken from Tenancy Admin Centers as to when viewing at a level…

  11. sharepoint designer restriction

    Currently the SharePoint Designer can only be switched on or off for a site. Then everyone can use the SPD. Rights to use the SPD should be granted on a certain role (which is different from the admin role).

  12. Make it possible to view OneDrive for Business usage trends by months in Usage page in Microsoft 365 admin center

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    OneDrive 利用状況の表示について

    Make it possible to view OneDrive for Business usage trends by months in Usage page in Microsoft 365 admin center
    ***************
    ■Description(内容):
    現在のMicrosoft 365管理センターにてOneDrive for Businessの利用状況を頻繁に使用しております。
    どれだけのユーザーが使用しているのかを常に把握し情報を記載する必要があるため、 [管理センター] - [レポート] - [使用状況] より毎回確認をしております。
    現在のOffice 365の動作では表示形式を変更が 7 日間、30 日間、90 日間、180 日間のみとなっており月表示にする事ができません。
    例として2018/12/01から2018/12/31までをグラフ表示する事ができれば、作業効率の大幅な向上が見込めるため機能の拡張を希望します。

    We always check the usage of OneDrive for Business from Microsoft 365 admin center to know the information how many users using the service. The report can be viewed for trends over the last 7days, 30days 90days, or 180days, but it would be much better if we could know the monthly usage trends…

  13. Allow admins to delete users from Office 365 admin center via GUI

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    Office 365 管理センターからユーザーを削除する際、GUI上から削除を可能にしてほしい。

    Allow admins to delete users from Office 365 admin center via GUI
    ***************
    ■Description(内容):
    現在、Office 365 管理センターの "削除済みユーザー" からユーザーを完全に削除する場合、PowerShell を利用する必要があると認識をいたしております。しかしながら、PowerShellのみの方法だと手数が多く、時間もかかり作業効率も悪いため、GUI上でも可能な操作にしていただきたいです。

    Currently it is required to run the PowerShell cmdlet to fully delete a user from the Office 365 admin center “deleted user”.

    For improvement of usability and work efficiency, it will be great if we could delete users directly on GUI.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  14. Make Set-SPOTenant -UserVoiceForFeedbackEnabled:$false have effect on all modern pages

    Please fix it so that Set-SPOTenant -UserVoiceForFeedbackEnabled:$false will have influence on ALL modern SharePoint Online pages.

    Right now when applying this, it only removes the feedback from the modern Site Pages. Not from any other modern page like the list views or the site contents. This makes its behavior inconsistent and confusing.

  15. 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.

  16. Security concerns around 404 Response for unauthorised users

    In recent discussions with a customer concerns were voiced around how SharePoint responds to requests for unauthenticated users.

    In particular when hitting a URL for a site collection that does exist vs one that doesn't.

    e.g.

    /sites/bar exists on the tenancy.
    /sites/foo does not exist on the tenancy

    When an unauthenticated user hits /sites/bar they get an auth challenge.
    When an unauthenticated user hits /sites/foo they get a very basic 404

    This behaviour makes it possible for unauthorised users to sniff around to understand what sites exist and what sites do not. This is a potential security risk as unauthorised…

  17. Add support for creatig Communication sites using PowerShell, API and PnP

    Currently the provisioning of Communication sites can't be automated. You have to use the UI. For many of our customers that have implemented the Office DevPnP engine (or any type of other custom solutions) this is a major challenge/issue.

    Please add support for creating Communication sites using PowerShell, API and PnP!

    Thx,
    CJ

  18. Recycle Bin - Ability to see full Name of deleted document and associated properties

    It's impossible to see the full document name of most of the deleted items that I have in the Site Collection Recycle Bin. I thought I would be able to just expand the columns to get that information - but nothing is allowed.

    There are lots of documents that start with the same first part of the name - and what will identify the document that needs to be restored is in the part that isn't displayed. There seems to be no way to view the full name.

    There is no way to edit the view to give more details…

  19. Need to add Task list to SharePoint Modern experience

    We use Task list A LOT on our "classic" sites. The last of support for Task list on "Modern" experience is a show shopper for us to move to modern experience.

  20. Enable addition of all list apps in the list preview webpart in modern site page

    At present, only custom lists are enabled to be viewed in the list preview webpart of the modern site pages. It will be great, if other lists such as Announcements, tasks etc. are also enabled for this list preview webpart.
