  1. 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…

  2. 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…

  3. SharePoint storage matrix and storage usage in SharePoint admin center has different information due to the shredded storage concept

    SharePoint storage matrix and storage usage in SharePoint admin center has different information due to the shredded storage concept and versioning of files.
    As stated in this article of SP 2013.
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/troubleshoot/administration/total-size-shows-full-size-file-version

    Request SP Product team to show the correct information as it creates confusion and gives a picture of probable data loss.

  4. Allow setting default Locale for SharePoint sites in the admin settings

    Site Creation settings only allow to set the default timezone, not the locale

    Non of our sites are in any locale but the UK so the region of all new sites is wrong. This leads to the users being confused by dates if this isn't updated on a site by site basis.. It also adds another step for site owners to have to adjust when creating sites

    Please let us set the default Locale for all new sites.

  6. UPN rename refresh all links

    When change an user principal name all related links are broken. For example all MS Teams links will be unusable. The Microsoft's answer is share files again. This is completely useless solution.

    It would be useful, if an UPN change would update all related links.

  7. Global Version Control

    SharePoint Online uses the storage corresponding to complete documents when versions are used (I have just confirmed this with a MS engineer). We would therefore like to not have 500 versions set on every library by default or we risk running into storage issues very quickly..

    An option to change the maximum versions allowed globally would be very welcome.

  8. A feature to set default values for version management for the entire tenant

    A feature to set default values for version management for the entire tenant


    ■Description(内容):
    SharePoint Online、及び OneDrive for Business におけるバージョン管理が現在はドキュメント ライブラリ毎に設定する必要がある。 そのためサイト、ドキュメント ライブラリ毎に設定が必要となる。 さらなる作業効率化のため、テナントで一括でバージョン管理の初期値を設定できる機能の拡充を希望します。​
    Currently version management for SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business needs to be set separately in the document library. As a result settings are required for every site and document library. We hope the feature will be improved to set default values for version management using the tenant so as to improve work efficiency.

    Option to hide app tiles in the SharePoint admin center

    しかしながら、本機能については、管理者や特定のユーザーに対しての適用を制御したい場合があるため、適用範囲を指定できるような機能の追加を強く希望します。

    In the SharePoint admin center, if the “Show or Hide App Tiles” item has been hidden, SharePoint is hidden from the Microsoft 365 portal tiles, but at present this applies to all users in the tenant regardless of if they are admins or what permissions they have.
    Since there are cases where we would like to restrict the application of this function to admins or specific users, please add a way to…

  12. Enable Member to Revoke "Direct Access" Users

    Site members are able to ADD users via direct access/manage access but cannot remove/revoke the added members. This inhibits us from allowing users to manage their sites (to an extent) rather than rely on the admin for every permission change. When you have hundred of document libraries, this become very inefficient.

  14. About Expansion of the number of restricting domains for external sharing

    According to the following knowledge base, you can configure up to 1000 domains to allow or block sharing of the domain list at the tenant level.
    We hope that you can expand the number of domains that can be registered and make the number of domains unlimited

  15. deleting sites under retention policy

    Having to go in and specify exclusions for sites in retention policy before allowing deletion is a stupid design. When you have a mess environment of sites that need cleaned up and you have to keep entering each individual site for exclusion. Whoever designed this had rocks in their head.

  16. Show Teams private channel site collections in SharePoint Online Admin center

    When someone creates a private channel in Teams it sets up a site collection that is not displayed in the SharePoint Admin Center.

    Because it is not displayed in the SharePoint Admin Center it is difficult to determine, how much storage these Teams private channel site collections are using.

    Also because we have a storage quota set by default for site collections, because it does not display in the admin center the quota can only be changed through powershell.

  17. Additional Extension needed for MS Workflow 2010

    Right now, our commercial systems use a workflow built in SharePoint 2010. In October, we asked for a 6 month extension for support and functionality for this workflow as we tried to find an alternative solution. That solution ultimately became Power Automate, however, the consultants that we have been working with are not complete yet and with requirements and functionality that is missing from Power Automate, we have found it challenging in some regards to adequately accommodate the change. We are very close to fruition on this project, but with our developers being located in some areas where there are…

  19. Allow publishing of content type hub content types via Powershell

    In SharePoint Online you can create new CT in the CTHub using PowerShell fairly easily, however there does not seem to be a way to automate publishing them. Looking for CSOM or PnP solution to publish CTs from the Hub to consuming sites.

  20. Setting the time zone at once for SPO sites

    Setting the site time zone is important for using SPO, and it would be great if we could change the time zone at once for multiple sites with GUI or PowerShell cmdlet. Currently, site administrators need to access each site to change it, so it is a time-consuming process for administrators.
