  1. 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. "View in File Explorer" for Edge

    There is no option "View in File Explorer" for Edge. We can only find it in Internet Explorer. But IE11 will not be supported by Microsoft soon in this year. We need this features available in Edge as it’s very useful.

    他社ではそれがすでに実現しているため、そのようになることを期待する。
    また、"Office 365 IPv6 テスト計画" というドキュメントに IPv6 専用クライアントについて記載があるにもかかわらず、実際対応していないのは混乱を招く元となる。

    We would like progress to be made towards supporting the exclusive use of IPv6 for SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business.
    We would like to be able to exclusively use IPv6 on anything that supports IPv6.
    This is already possible in other organizations, so we would expect it here too.
    Also, even though there is mention…

    Automatically delete the minor version history by information management policy


    ■Description(内容):
    現在ドキュメント ライブラリのバージョン設定にて、マイナーバージョンの削除は手動でしか実行できないが、情報管理ポリシーの設定にて、バージョン管理も選択できるようになることで、作業の工数が減るため、マイナーバージョンを自動で削除する設定および機能の拡充を希望します。

    Currently, in the version settings of document libraries, minor versions can only be deleted manually. It would reduce the amount of work we have to do if it was possible to select version management in the settings of information management policies and have it automatically delete minor versions, so please make this possible.

    Result of exporting a list of sites


    ■Description(内容):
    ​現状、SharePoint 管理センター内の [アクティブなサイト] からエクスポートしたデータを確認すると、"作成者" 列に、Microsoft 365 グループサイトの "作成者名" ではなく、"グループ名 + 所有者 " の表示になっていることを確認しました。

    "作成者" 列に、作成ユーザー名のみが表示されていないと作成者が不明な状態となってしまい、不便に感じます。

    当該サイトを作成したユーザー名のみ表示される動作を要望します。

    Currently, data exported from "Active sites" in SharePoint admin center does not have in its "Author" column the "Author name" of a Microsoft 365 group site. Instead it displays "group name + Owner".

    Not displaying author names in "Author" column makes authors unknown, and this is inconvenient.
    Please make it so that only the names of the users who created the site are displayed.

  14. Syncing resource names between SharePoint and Project

    I struggled to sync Resource Names in Project with the Assigned To column in SharePoint, even after verifying that all names were entered the same. I began entering the names manually in SharePoint, and it somehow prompted SharePoint to begin syncing names from Project to SharePoint. I informed my organization's Microsoft Administrator and she tells me that it's a common issue that occurs with SharePoint (i.e., SharePoint begins to function appropriately after a user begins to manually enter data into it).

    It'd be nice if this bug could be resolved so it's not a painstaking process in the future.

  15. This 'Throttling' thing has to stop! TURN OFF THE THROTTLING.

    It's gotten to the point where I/we can't get work done in a timely manner because of it. Support is no help; they basically just tell us "that's just how it is." Things that I have been able to do since the dawn of time with on-prem SharePoint have become tedious. As a SharePoint Administrator I should not be throttled for doing something like selecting a couple hundred documents and changing a property on them. That is basic, basic, BASIC SharePoint functionality. Furthermore, while I don't want to be "that guy," how is it acceptable that we're being throttled on…

    テナント全体を監視するにあたって、SharePoint 管理者により複数の SharePoint サイトを横断してアイテム保管ライブラリの容量を確認できるよう、機能の拡充を希望する

    At present, item storage libraries are managed by the relevant SharePoint site, and so if they do not have permissions on the SharePoint site even SharePoint admins cannot check the capacities of these libraries.
    To monitor the whole tenant, please make it possible for SharePoint admins to check the capacity of item storage libraries across multiple SharePoint sites.
