  1. Prevent new guest users being granted access to SharePoint Online sites due to the action of Teams

    ■Title(件名):
    Microsoft Teams の操作で新規ゲストユーザーへ SharePoint Online サイト権限が付与されないようにしたい。
    Prevent new guest users being granted access to SharePoint Online sites due to the action of Teams


    ■Description(内容):
    SharePoint 管理センターの外部共有設定で [コンテンツを共有できる相手:] - [既存のゲスト] に設定しているが、Microsoft Teams からテナント内に存在しない新規の外部ユーザーをゲストとして招待した場合、チームに紐づく SharePoint Online サイト コレクションへ権限が付与されてアクセス可能となる。
    既存のゲストユーザー以外に SharePoint Online サイト コレクションの権限を付与したくない場合も Microsoft Teams の操作により権限が付与されてしまうと運用にあたり不便なため、権限の付与を制限できるように機能の拡充を要望します。

    In the SharePoint admin center’s sharing settings, “Content can be shared with:” is set to “Existing guests”, but if a new external user who does not exist in the tenant is invited as a guest, they are granted the ability to access the team’s SharePoint Online site collection.
    In cases where one…

    Set and lock the interface for each Microsoft 365 service’s admin center


    ■Description(内容):
    SharePoint 管理センターや Microsoft 365 管理センターなど、各Microsoft 365 サービスの管理センターのインターフェイスが新しいものに刷新され、設定場所や項目が分かりにくく、操作性が悪くなっている。
    また、一定間隔でインターフェイスを変更されてしまうと、操作がわからなくなったり、設定できなくなる弊害が発生する。
    そのため、Microsoft 365 サービスの各管理センターのインターフェイスを統一し、変更しないようにしてほしい。

    The interface of the admin center has been revamped for each service in Microsoft 365, such as the SharePoint admin center and the Microsoft 365 admin center, which has made it difficult to understand where various settings can be found, impacting usability.
    Also, the interface changing regularly means that it becomes harder to use, or certain settings can no longer be used.
    Please unify the interfaces of the Microsoft…

  5. Improve Power Automate to provide an alternative approval workflow for sharepoint documents

    The old sharepoint 2010 workflow for document approval is a well used tool, I'd go as far as to suggest that most users of workflows in sharepoint have this one running in any number of libraries.

    Now i get that you need to get rid of old tech and MICROSOFT believes that power automate should be the replacement, I get it I truely do, however you need to look again. I use power automate a lot, just not for document approval, cos it doesn't work.

    What used to be a simple processes of setting up workflow for approval of documents…

    ■Title(件名):
    ユーザー プロファイルの携帯電話 を Office Delve に同期させてほしい
    Sync mobile phone numbers on user profiles with Office Delve


    ■Description(内容):
    現在 Azure Active Directory のユーザー プロファイルの携帯電話 の項目は、Office Delve に自動で同期されない。
    このためユーザーが手動で入力する必要があり、入力状況の確認や管理に工数がかかる。
    利便性向上のため、Azure Active Directory から同期されるプロファイルの項目を増やしてほしい。
    また、テナント単位で Office Delve に規定で表示させる項目を設定できる機能を追加してほしい。

    Currently, mobile phone numbers in Azure Active Directory user profiles are not automatically synced with Office Delve.
    Therefore, it is necessary to manually enter them; managing this and checking that this is done correctly creates extra work.
    In order to make this more convenient, please increase the number of profile items which are synced from Azure Active Directory.
    Also, please add…

  9. Allow multiple column choices within a library for a smoother Teams experience

    Scenario: Creating a team in Teams app where files are stored in various channels, i.e. in a SharePoint library. In addition a form in Forms is created and linked to this same Team. This form has mandatory fields. When creating this Form, new columns representing the mandatory fields are added to the document library and thus also become mandatory for the other existing files in the various channels (library). Hence, it would be useful to be able to have different columns (mandatory or not) for different channels in the Team.

  10. Behavior when being directed from usernames to Delve

    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…

  12. 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.

  13. 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…

  14. 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.

  16. 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…

  18. 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).

  19. 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…

  20. 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…
