  1. Change of the limit to ameliorate the migration to OneDrive/SharePoint (error: it exceeds the list view threshold)

    Hello,

    I am doing migration of on-premise servers to the cloud, and Microsoft products have interesting prospect in that matter. However, I am facing an annoying problem. When I move on-premise data from Microsoft servers, I cannot set the same access right in the folders because there is a limit threshold of 50'000 items (The attempted operation is prohibited because it exceeds the list view threshold). For a company that has several years of data it is very common that they would reach that threshold. I understand that inside the structure, deep in the folders, it might be possible to…

  2. 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.

  3. 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…

  5. Provide option to define default sensitivity label for OneDrive and option to modify existing OneDrive sites using the GUI

    Please give us the option to define the default Sensitivity label a newly created OneDrive site should receive. It would also be handy to have the option to modify the Sensitivity label of a OneDrive site using the OneDrive Admin portal, just like we can do with SharePoint sites where we are able to modify the Sensitivity per site.

  6. Function to prevent download or printing of files embedded in file viewer

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    ファイル ビューアーで埋め込んだファイルのダウンロードや印刷を禁止する機能について
    Function to prevent download or printing of files embedded in file viewer


    ■Description(内容):
    SharePoint Online のページにファイル ビューアーや埋め込みでPDFファイルなどを埋め込んだ際に、プレビューされたファイルの右下の角のメニューからコピーのダウンロード、印刷などが可能だが、この機能を禁止する設定値を実装してほしい。
    現状プレビューされたファイルのダウンロードや印刷は権限の設定でも制御できないため、意図せずユーザーにダウンロードや印刷をさせてしまうリスクがある。

    When a PDF file etc. is embedded or inserted with file viewer into a SharePoint Online page, it is possible to download and print the file using the menu in the bottom right of the previewed file, but we would like to be able to prevent this in settings.
    Currently downloading and printing of previewed files cannot be restricted even using permission settings, so there is a risk that unintended users may download or print files.

    Protecting sensitive information in the time taken for a DLP policy to detect it


    ■Description(内容):
    現在の動作として、DLP ポリシーを設定しても、機密情報を検出するまでの数分間は、ファイルがサイトのメンバーから閲覧可能な状態となる。
    この空白期間に機密情報を保護できるような機能の拡充を希望します。

    Under the current behavior, even if a DLP policy is set up, in the few minutes it takes to detect sensitive information, it is possible for site members to view those files.
    Please expand on this functionality so that sensitive information is protected during this period, too.

  8. Invite specific guest access setting

    If you want to manage guest access permission, you may use permission levels setting to do so. But here you can grant guest users sharing access. I want just to invite the guest user, I don’t want to grant sharing access

    Hello,
    Currently, if we enable LimitedAccess for unmanaged devices, then the following scenario applies:
    1. Conditional Access & Tenant policies created etc.
    2. When trying to browse to OneDrvive/SharePoint site from Managed PC, we CAN do move or copy files inside the OneDrvive/SharePoint environment (not possible to move or copy to PC)
    3. When trying to browse to OneDrvive/SharePoint site from Unmanaged PC, we NOT able to do the move or copy files inside the OneDrvive/SharePoint environment (not possible to move or copy to PC)

  10. More detailed settings for access permissions

    When restricting access to a specific IP in SharePoint Online, I would like to be able to configure editing, posting and viewing permissions in detail for users with access permissions.
    Also, I would like to be able to set restrictions based on individual sites rather than for whole site collections.

  11. Do not allow users with only viewing permissions to view contents of access right management

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    閲覧権限のユーザーにはアクセス許可の管理を表示させないでほしい
    Do not allow users with only viewing permissions to view contents of access right management


    ■Description(内容):
    閲覧権限のユーザーにもアクセス許可の管理が表示されるため、サイトやドキュメントを誰と共有しているか、サイトの所有者が誰かという、コンテンツの閲覧以上の情報が見えている。
    閲覧権限のユーザーにはアクセス許可の管理を表示させないでほしい。

    Since users with viewing rights can also view the access rights management interface, they can see who the sites/documents are shared with and who the site’s owner is – i.e. they can see more information than just the content itself.
    Please do not allow users with only read access to see the access rights management information.

  14. Prevent users from creating new folders in the root of a document library but still be able to create subfolders within existing folders

    Each department has their own folder - Marketing, Sales, etc.

    There is no supported way to restrict users from creating new files or folders in the root of a document library.

  15. Data Classification of all Documents in a Sharepoint Site

    Microsoft Security launched the Data Classification of SharePoint Sites. However we need capability to classify all the documents in an existing SharePoint site automatically without having to specify content.
    Currently auto classify requires to provide "Sensitivity Info Type" we need capability to classify all documents irrespective of content.

  16. Exclusion settings for external users in DLP policies

    ■Title(件名):
    DLP ポリシーにおける 組織外ユーザーの除外設定について
    Exclusion settings for external users in DLP policies


    ■Description(内容):
    現状 SharePoint Online の DLP ポリシーにおいて、組織外の特定のドメインをポリシーに対し除外設定する設定が提供されていない。
    組織外のユーザーであっても、機密情報を含めたデータのやり取りを行うシナリオがあるため、組織外の特定のドメインのみ、DLP ポリシーの対象外とする機能の実装を要望します。

    Currently in SharePoint Online DLP policies, there is no way to exclude specified external domains from policies using exclusions settings.
    Even if there are external users, there are scenarios where data containing confidential information is exchanged, and therefore I would like you to add some way to exclude specified external domains from the DLP policy.

  18. Online only file access through the OneDrive client

    Accessing SharePoint online files in an online only state while working through the OneDrive app.

    So the folders can be traversed in the file browser and opened and edited in desktop clients (word, excel, etc.), but once the program is closed the local copy is cleared immediately.

  19. Access to OneDrive admin center for global reader

    Allow global admin role read access to OneDrive admin center.
    Seems counter-intuitive that the global reader has access to SharePoint admin center but no access to OneDrive

  20. Show all users who are granted access on the Manage Access window

    If we have 99 or more users who are access granted via links giving access, the Manage Access window shows some user name and “99+”, we are not able to see all user name in this window. I would like to know who has access or doesn’t, I want to request a feature to show all users who have access. Also, we want to know if access granted users don’t actually access the site, page, folder, so it would be great if we can obtain this kind of users via GUI or PowerShell.
