  1. 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…

    ■Description(内容):
    SharePoint Online でサイトを作る場合に、メニューやヘッダーなど上部のバーが閲覧者に表示されないページの機能の追加を希望します。
    ポータルサイトを作成するにあたり、閲覧者に対しては管理者や編集者が案内する内容のみを見せられる状態にしたいため、現状のメニューやスイート バーが表示される状態が運用上望ましくない状況です。これらのメニューやロゴなどもすべて非表示となったページを作成する機能を追加してほしいです。

    When creating a site on SharePoint Online, I would like to be able to add a page that does not show a menu or header etc. to viewers.
    In creating a portal site, I want to be able to only show these parts to viewers who are admins or editors, so the current state where the menu and suite bar are shown is not ideal for this implementation. Please make it possible to create pages with the menu, logo etc.…

    カスタムのデザインを用途ごとに設定するため、サイト コレクションの管理者などで後から変更されると困る

    If you create 3 site collection designs: A, B, and C, and use existing templates A, B and C, we would like to be able to lock the templates that can be used to create files so that, for example, if you are creating a site from a team site template A, A must be used. If you create a communication site, B is used, and if you create a…

  7. Make it possible to save specified column widths on the SharePoint admin center “Active sites” screen

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    SharePoint 管理センターの ""アクティブなサイト"" 画面で、任意の列幅を保存できるように機能の拡充を希望する。
    Make it possible to save specified column widths on the SharePoint admin center “Active sites” screen


    ■Description(内容):
    SharePoint 管理センターの "アクティブなサイト" 画面では、自身でビューを作成し、表示列を管理できるが、列の表示幅の保存が行えない。
    サイト名やユーザー名が長い場合、文字列末尾が見切れてしまい、都度列幅の調整が必要となる。
    利便性の向上の為、任意の列幅を保存できるよう、機能の拡充を希望する。

    On the SharePoint admin center “Active sites” screen, you can create views and change which columns are displayed, but you can’t save the width of columns.
    If site or usernames are long, they can be cut off, meaning you have to adjust the column widths every time to read them.
    To improve usability, please add a way to save column widths.

  8. Links in document libraries should work as a link if clicked from a search.

    Within a SharePoint document library, it is possible to add a link to another URL, (document or web page). When this item is returned in a search result the link SHOULD open the document or page the link points to, instead it opens a blank page, (the "contents" of the link). I am not sure if this is by design or a bug, but the action should be chnaged. As an alternative, such links should not be included in search results.

  10. Add a warning alongside the 'Edit URL' link in the SharePoint Admin Centre

    Changing a SharePoint site URL in the admin centre comes with risks. Whilst these are listed in the Microsoft Documentation (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/change-site-address#effects-of-changing-a-site-address), these are not obvious from the admin centre.

    Can I suggest that a warning is added alongside the 'Edit URL' link to advise administrators of the things to look out for.

    I was caught out by the fact that all lists that had been customised with PowerApps were no longer usable after the site URL had been changed. This could not be fixed and so we had to change the URL back again to get the forms…

  11. SharePoint Online update notifications

    *English follows Japanese

    SharePoint Online update notifications


    ■Description(内容):
    更新通知は、トップページのニュースフィードが更新された時のみを限定して配信されるなどの変更設定が可能となるとよい。現状は通知メール限定や変更の設定ができず、ドキュメントなどの更新があった場合も通知が届く。
    It would be good to have options such as only having update notifications appear when the top page news feed is updated, etc. Currently there are no ways to limit the notification mails and notifications are sent for updates to documents etc. as well.

  15. columns' default value based on other columns

    This is a MUST HAVE feature for us to create COMPOSED PRIMARY KEYS in a list.
    Let's say one has a list with Name and Year text columns among others and the PK must be Year + Name. One could then create a new unique value column whose default value would be the concatenation of those 2 strings.

    I see no big issue to implement this since columns' VALIDATION field always allowed to refer other list columns. What to say a mere default value field.

    Being able to have composed PKs in lists is a cornerstone to any SERIOUS use…

  19. make it possible to use "m365 owner" group to set permission

    When managing permissions for a modern SharePoint site you can actually use the m365 members group to add to a SharePoint permission group. But you can not add the m365 owners group.
    The strange thing is when creating a new SharePoint Team site with a m365 group the m365 owners group is set by default on the owner permissions. But when you create your own owner groups you can not use/find the m365 owner group. The m365 member group can be found and can be used.
