  2. Set "show this view in folders of content type" with PowerShell | Modern experience

    Please add the ability to set "show this view in folders of content type" with PowerShell. This field is no editable right now.

    The missing possibility of editing leads to a lot of work in our IT department.

    Furthermore, please activate this view feature in the modern experience. This great feature deserves to be available in the modern experience...

  6. A feature to set default values for version management for the entire tenant

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    テナント全体でバージョン管理の既定値を設定する機能の拡充
    A feature to set default values for version management for the entire tenant


    ■Description(内容):
    SharePoint Online、及び OneDrive for Business におけるバージョン管理が現在はドキュメント ライブラリ毎に設定する必要がある。 そのためサイト、ドキュメント ライブラリ毎に設定が必要となる。 さらなる作業効率化のため、テナントで一括でバージョン管理の初期値を設定できる機能の拡充を希望します。​
    Currently version management for SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business needs to be set separately in the document library. As a result settings are required for every site and document library. We hope the feature will be improved to set default values for version management using the tenant so as to improve work efficiency.

  9. Allow setting default Locale for SharePoint sites in the admin settings

    Site Creation settings only allow to set the default timezone, not the locale

    Non of our sites are in any locale but the UK so the region of all new sites is wrong. This leads to the users being confused by dates if this isn't updated on a site by site basis.. It also adds another step for site owners to have to adjust when creating sites

    Please let us set the default Locale for all new sites.

  11. Global Version Control

    SharePoint Online uses the storage corresponding to complete documents when versions are used (I have just confirmed this with a MS engineer). We would therefore like to not have 500 versions set on every library by default or we risk running into storage issues very quickly..

    An option to change the maximum versions allowed globally would be very welcome.

    In the SharePoint admin center, if the “Show or Hide App Tiles” item has been hidden, SharePoint is hidden from the Microsoft 365 portal tiles, but at present this applies to all users in the tenant regardless of if they are admins or what permissions they have.
    Since there are cases where we would like to restrict the application of this function to admins or specific users, please add a way to…

    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.

  16. PowerShell "Site owners and members, and people with Edit permissions can share files and folders, but only site owners can share the site"

    The ability to set the SharePoint Online site sharing permissions setting to "Site owners and members, and people with Edit permissions can share files and folders, but only site owners can share the site" using PowerShell, this way it can be set for a large number of sites via scripting. Currently Microsoft tells me this is not possible via PowerShell and can only be done manually per site.

    サブサイト単位でグループ紐づけができるようにしたい。
    Allow a group to be linked to an individual sub site


    ■Description(内容):
    弊社の運用では、Teams からチームを作成しSharePoint を使っています。

    この場合、各チームに部署を紐づける操作が手間なので、
    一つのポータルを用意し、そこからサブサイト作成>サブサイトに対しグループを紐づけるといった操作が可能となれば、かなり利便性の向上につながると想定されます。

    In our operation, we create teams from Teams and use SharePoint.

    In this case, linking a department to each team takes some work, so please make it possible to use one portal, and from there create a subsite and link a group to that subsite. Doing so would increase the convenience of the system.

  20. 2010 Workflows Retirement

    Stop Retirement of SharePoint 2010 Workflows. 2013 Workflows do not do permission replacement or email outside of exchange contacts. PowerAutomate does not meet the standards for a replacement and there is clearly not enough time to rebuild all of the workflows.
