  1. Behavior when being directed from usernames to Delve

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    ユーザー名から Delve へ遷移する動作について
    Behavior when being directed from usernames to Delve


    ■Description(内容):
    SharePoint サイトのユーザー情報リスト (sites/<サイト名>/_layouts/15/people.aspx?MembershipGroupId=0) や、ライブラリなどの更新者列など、ユーザー名が表示されている箇所をクリックしますと対象ユーザーの Delve へ遷移する動作を確認しております。
    思いがけない操作で、ユーザー名をクリックした際に Delve 画面へ遷移してしまった場合に、ユーザーに対し混乱を招いてしまう可能性があるため、ユーザー名などからのクリックでDelveに遷移させないよう制御できる機能の実装を希望します。
    併せて、管理者側で認知している範囲でDelveの閲覧を許可させるため、Delveと連携可能な Office 365 サービスを選択できるような機能の実装も希望します。

    If you click on places where usernames are shown, such as the column showing the user who last updated the information in user information lists (sites/<sitename>/_layouts/15/people.aspx?MembershipGroupId=0) or libraries on SharePoint sites, you are directed to the relevant user on Delve.
    In situations where one accidentally clicks a username and is taken to the Delve screen, it’s very possible the user will get confused, so we would like to control this behavior…

  2. Add option to limit file uploads to Teams in advance

    ■Title(件名):
    Microsoft Teams のファイルアップロードを事前に制限できる機能を希望します
    Add option to limit file uploads to Teams in advance


    ■Description(内容):
    チームのファイルアップロードを制限するために、チームに紐づく SharePoint サイトで権限の設定を行うが、事前に制限を実施することで新たに作成されたチームにおいても全てのユーザーがアイテムをアップロードできないように制限する機能の拡充を要望します。
    In order to restrict file uploads in teams, it is necessary to set the restriction in the SharePoint site linked to that team. However, we would like an option to restrict file uploads across all users in even newly created teams in advance.

  3. SharePoint 2019 Flaw when opening documents in Edge & IE

    SharePoint 2019 On Prem Out of the Box does not behave well when opening documents. By default Edge will open documents read only and to a temporary local location on your client. If you work on that document and save it, there is no notification that this is not saving back to sharepoint. Then when you close the browser, you lose your work.
    So far following a support call with Microsoft I was advised to install Office Online Server, and was not given confirmation that this flaw will be fixed. I know you are trying to push us to the…

  4. Prevent editing the files in Office Client for "Viewed only" users.

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名): Office Online および Office クライアントでの編集について

    Disable editing the files in Office Client for "Viewed only" users.


    ■Description(内容):
    現状、"閲覧" 権限のユーザーにて、Office Online 上では編集不可でありながら、Office クライアントでは編集できてしまう。Office Online および Office クライアントで編集ができない権限を実装してほしい。

    The current feature is that users with "Viewed only" permission cannot edit the contents in Office Online. Somehow, it is allowed to edit the files in Office Client so far.

    To enhance data protection, the permissions should be synchronized with the same between Office Online and Office Client such as not editable locally too.

  5. OneDrive allow more than 1 SharePointOmPremFrontDoorURL

    We have multiple web applications that are migrating to SP2019 soon. In our development, we came across this post: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/install/new-onedrive-sync-client which will allow us to set the SharePointOnPremFrontDoorUrl to a single web application. We need to allow multiple SharePointOnPremFrontDoorUrl values. Example:

    WebApp1: portal.company.com
    WebApp2: hub.company.com
    WebApp3: intranet.company.com
    WebApp4: Etcetera.company.com
    We want users to be able to sync files and folders to any or all of the web applications. We want them to all show up in the same tenant if possible, or we can create multiple On Prem tenants (SharePointOnPremTenantName) as needed.

  7. PowerBI and Sharepoint Image Permission Integration

    When using a SharePoint Online list as a data source in PowerBI, image links do not work unless you are revealing the PowerBI dashboard inside a SharePoint page. (for more details, see links to PowerBI community discussions at the bottom of this post)

    The only way to make them work today is to change the permissions individually, at an item-level, for every linked image. This is not practical.

    Essentially, my dashboard works within SharePoint, but not PowerBI natively, and I am not able to consider extending it to other products such as Cortana.

    I could go through all sorts of…

  9. Allow OneDrive to Sync Libraries shared from external Tenants

    Make the OneDrive Sync Client able to sync Libraries that are shared from external Office 365 Tenants and allow Microsoft accounts to sync SharePoint Libraries.

    We need this functionality to help discourage our corporate employees from turning to other products that we don't have control over (like DropBox).

  10. A mechanism for mapping drives to SharePoint that does not rely on Internet Explorer

    We are frustrated by the fact that we are forced to use Internet Explorer as a way to invoke WebDAV to map network drives. The prerequisites of having to be logged into SharePoint via IE11 prior to mapping or accessing a mapped drive to SharePoint is clumsy and unreliable. It also requires too much dependence on the user to be mindful of these prerequisites. We would expect, in the days of Win10, that there is a more direct linkage between the OS and SharePoint so we don't have to rely on the increasingly problematic IE11 which is barely supported by…

  11. MS Word Form & Content Controls

    MS Word Form & Content Controls

    In essence the matter lies in Word Form data rendering in the SPO Browser Mode vs. Edit in Word. We block Edit in Word as the users need to collaborate, but are barred from download. Users are required to Edit in Browser.

    I have tried various workarounds, including attempts at modifying Word Options and adjusting SPO settings - all fruitless. What is going here and is there any resolution? I am even game for finding a script to automate an "open, save, and close" process in the background. Having an admin manually open each…

  12. Add Office Support for XML Files

    Excel XML files (.xml) won't open from a SharePoint library via the browser (IE 11). Office returns an error saying "This action couldn't be performed because Office doesn't recognize the command it was given." But they do open from the File Explorer (after using Open with Explorer from the library ribbon), so I guess the problem isn't with Office but rather with the way SharePoint is passing the link to Office. That should be fixed.
    I posted a question in the SharePoint 2013 - General Discussions and Questions forum and a Microsoft Contingent Staff member verified the failing behaviour and…

  14. Embed Hoopla TV on SharePoint site

    It would be great if we could embed our Hoopla TV channel on our main SharePoint site. I am unsure why we are not able to do this; we are able to embed it in our Teams channels. Is this something that is forthcoming?

  17. "Google Analytics" tag should be enbedded in SPO by default

    Google Analytics is often used for analytics purpose. Currently SPO have to be customized to embed "Aoogle Analytics" tag. But it should become default option because Google Analytics is used more and more.

  19. Lookup Metadata Column and Office 2016 Microsoft case # 118020817613809

    Custom content types with lookup columns don't currently work in Office 2016 and SharePoint Server 2016. The lookup column data is not accessible from Office, so the metadata cannot be selected. This is not an issue with SharePoint online and Office 2016, or with SharePoint Server 2016 and Office 2013. This has been an issue that has been brought to Microsoft's attention going back a couple of years, and there is still no resolution.

  20. Design flaw with external sharing (guest users) and mail routing in Exchange Online

    We have noticed a design issue in O365 with External sharing (guest users) and SMTP.
    This has happened now many times with few different organizations.

    Have discussed this with MS Technical Support and is currently Working As Designed - requesting change for this design.

    Scenario goes like this:
    1. our O365 users share files/data with External users, invite them with their email address firstname.lastname@foo.bar
    2. invited users will log in to O365 to gain access, External User account is created and that object is used when routing email messages sent from our O365.
    3a) if external users Exchange UPN is…
