  1. Ability to download malicious files for Security Admins

    If "Set-SPOTenant -DisallowInfectedFileDownload $true" is set, and an infected file is detected, there is no way to download it for analysis, for security team. It would be great to give such access to Security Admins or another role and be able to download the file as a password protected zip for analysis and determine if it's a fale or true positive.

  2. Disable "Add Shortcut to OneDrive" for a Document Library

    "Add Shortcut to OneDrive" is a new feature in the last few months. When it was in Public Preview, there was a PowerShell command to disable that feature:

    "Set-SPOTenant -DisableAddShortcutsToOneDrive $true"

    This command was announced in MC217339 of the O365 Message center. Based on my interaction with support in Case 22963247, that PowerShell command is no longer available now that the feature is no longer in Public Preview.

    I would like the ability to disable "Add Shortcut to OneDrive" again. My environment is about 50% Windows 10 LTSB (1607), and when users "Add Shortcut", it syncs the Document Library to…

  3. Stop column formula references using internal names causing references to break when columns are published.

    Stop using internal names in the background when referencing site columns in formulas. If the display name of a referenced site column is different from the internal name and it contains spaces, the formula will use the internal name when added to a list/library causing an error. When the calculated column is published from the CTHUB it also breaks the formula as the referenced column doesn't exist wit the same name on other site collections.

  5. Provide capability for auditing storage quota changes to sites

    When storage quota of a site is changed the action is not audited so there is no way to find out who made the change, when the change took place and so on. It would really helpful if this action is added in Audit Logs in Security and Compliance Center.

  6. Please provide Windows PowerShell commandlets that support Microsoft Stream

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    Microsoft Stream に対応する Windows PowerShell コマンドレットを提供してほしい。
    Please provide Windows PowerShell commandlets that support Microsoft Stream


    ■Description(内容):
    Microsoft Stream に対応する Windows PowerShell コマンドレットが、現時点では提供されておらず、設定や情報を管理するのは、GUI からのみであるため、大変不便です。
    そのため、Microsoft Stream に対応する Windows PowerShell コマンドレットの提供を希望します。
    具体例として、Windows PowerShell コマンドレットを使用して、"タイトル"、"投稿者"、"投稿日"、"社内の全員にこの動画の閲覧を許可する" が設定されている動画情報や指定した日時に新規投稿された動画の一覧を抽出したり、"社内の全員にこの動画の閲覧を許可する" の設定を解除できるなどのコマンドレットを提供してほしい。
    Currently Windows PowerShell commandlets that support Microsoft Stream are not provided, and GUI has to be used to manage settings and information, which is very inconvenient.
    Thus we hope Windows PowerShell commandlets will be provided to support Microsoft Stream.
    To give a more concrete example, we hope that commandlets will be provided to extract a list of new videos that have the…

  7. Comments on list item in SharePoint Online

    Currently, we can enable and disable commenting functionality on list items at the tenant level, not for a specific list or site scope.

    So I think it would be great to have an option at list settings to enable or disable comments for a specific list.

    Also, at the site level, we should have the same option at site settings to control the commenting functionality for all lists for a specific site, instead of the tenant level.

    I have received many questions related to this request from my customers and technical communities. so I have decided to raise this idea…

  8. Prevent or at least mention creation of Conditional Access policies when modifying unmanaged device settings

    If you modify the Unmanaged devices setting under Access Control in the SharePoint Admin center from "Allow full access from desktop apps, mobile apps, and the web" to "Allow limited, web-only access" and safe this setting, two Conditional Access policies are created targeted to "All Users" and which are enabled. There is no notification that this is happening and can cause some serious issues in a production environment, if the admin making the change is unaware of this "feature". This is even the case when using PowerShell to make the setting.

    Please fix this by:
    a) at least notify the…

  9. Add Support Partner option from modern site admin page

    The Classic Site Collections page is going away tomorrow, 12/2/20. However there is no replacement for the "Add Support Partner" option.

    The article referenced below tells you to use PowerShell. However, they say to go to a site where you have already added a Support Partner, and use PowerShell to copy that to another site collection. If you need to add a Support Partner to a site collection in a tenant for the first time, there will be no option to do so. I opened a support incident with Microsoft and they confirmed this to be the case and suggested…

    When changes/updates are scheduled for release they are described in the message center, and although it is recommended that we check the functions which are changed/updated in the said release, there is currently no way to check whether or not the change has been deployed in your tenant, so it is not possible to accurately check.

    Fix differences in the display of Microsoft Search ProvisioningStatus in PowerShell between tenants and users


    ■Description(内容):
    ライセンス、サービスの付与を PowerShell でアカウントごとに設定しているため、テナントの Microsoft Search のProvisioningStatus が Success で表示されているにも拘らず、ユーザーで ProvisioningStatus を確認すると PendingProvisioning で表示されているため、Office 365 管理センターで確認作業が必要になり手間がかかる。
    また、Office 365 管理センターの確認についてはアカウントに当該ライセンスを付与する必要がありさらに作業工程が増えてしまいます。
    "このアプリは組織レベルで割り当てられています。ユーザーごとに割り当てることはできません" に該当するサービスについてはテナントで確認する ProvisioningStatus をユーザーで表示されている PendingProvisioning に統一して表示することを希望します。

    We use PowerShell to check license and service assignments for each account, and regardless of whether the tenant’s Microsoft Search ProvisioningStatus is shown as “Success”, checking it from the user’s side shows it as PendingProvisioning, thus requiring extra work to check it via the Office 365 Admin Center.
