  2. Enable audit logging of permission changes to Document Libraries

    Enable audit logging of permission changes to Document Libraries.

    I've had a situation where document library permissions on the Site Pages DL were modified, breaking a critical SP site for our business and was unable to determine who or what made the change.

  3. Extract only the URL for a team using the team name in PowerShell

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    Microsoft Teams のチーム名から、PowerShell にて URL のみを取得したい
    Extract only the URL for a team using the team name in PowerShell


    ■Description(内容):
    "Get-UnifiedGroup -Identity "チーム名" | select SharePointSiteUrl" を実行すると、URL だけではなく、"SharePointSiteUrl" という項目も取得ができる。取得した値を変数に代入するため、"SharePointSiteUrl" という項目は取得せず、URL のみを取得できるようにしたい

    If you run "Get-UnifiedGroup -Identity "Team name" | select SharePointSiteUrl", not only is the URL extracted, but so is the “SharePointSiteUrl” item. We wish to assign the value we obtain from this command to a variable, and therefore would like to be able to pull only the URL, without also getting the “SharePointSiteUrl” item.

  4. 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.

    Display the side link bar at top bar position for Modern sites

    We strongly hope that the side link bar in Modern sites can be displayed at the top bar position just like the communication site. Considering the design of the site display, it will be very useful if there is such a feature.

  7. About Expansion of the number of restricting domains for external sharing

    According to the following knowledge base, you can configure up to 1000 domains to allow or block sharing of the domain list at the tenant level.
    We hope that you can expand the number of domains that can be registered and make the number of domains unlimited

  8. 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.

  9. Display of group names

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    グループの名称表示について
    Display of group names


    ■Description(内容):
    グループの名前などの属性を変更した場合は、SharePoint のサイト コレクション上には反映されない動作となるため、変更したグループ名をサイト コレクションに反映させるためには、一度サイト上からグループを削除する必要がございます。
    しかしながら、SharePoint Online のサイト コレクションのユーザ情報リストから該当のグループを削除した場合、アイテム毎に権限を再付与する必要がございます。
    複数のアイテムに対して再付与することは、とても現実的ではないため、一括で権限を戻せるよう機能の拡充を希望します。

    If attributes such as group name etc. are changed, the changes do not reflect in the SharePoint site collection, and so in order to make the changes show up, it is necessary to remove and re-add the group on the site.
    However, if the group in question is removed from the SharePoint Online site collection user information list, you need to re-apply permissions to all the items.
    It isn’t realistic to re-apply permissions to multiple items, so please add a way…

  10. Better, faster recycle bin restore capability

    Users accidentally delete stuff...no getting around it. This morning I had someone accidentally delete 35,000 files from a OneDrive-synced SharePoint doc library, and now I'm in the process of restoring them. get-pnprecyclebinitem is painfully, unacceptably slow. This is literally going to take DAYS at this rate. Restoring via the GUI is no good because you can't easily select thousands of files at once. There has to be a better way to bulk-undo user errors like this.

  12. 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.

  13. About the notification setting completion mail

    About the notification setting completion mail


    ■Description(内容):
    SharePoint ドキュメント ライブラリの通知機能を設定すると、["サイト名" に関する通知が作成されました。] とメールが送信されますが、通知の削除と設定を繰り返し行う場合、該当通知が複数送信されることが考えられるため、本機能が停止可能な機能の拡充を希望いたします。

    When you configure notification settings in a SharePoint document library, a mail that reads “Notifications created for <site name>” is sent out, but in a case where notifications are deleted and settings are repeatedly changed, these mails may be sent out in large numbers, and so we would like a way to temporarily disable them.

  19. Improve resource auto-allocation for better performance

    Customer often faces slow access / poor performance with SPO, causing incovinience to veiw their portal site.
    They understand that Microsoft optimizes resource allocation for each tenants based on some metrics as a cloud provider, however, they need to wait for more than 10 minutes to access their portal site, and this is no acceptable from end-user's perspective.
    Through some investigation, they confirmed there is no issues around network and it seems there are some resource shortage in SPO. So they request to improve resource auto-allocation for better performance.

  20. Opening files in the client app when opening them from a hyperlink

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):

    ハイパーリンクからファイルにアクセスした際に Office クライアント アプリで開ける機能の実装を希望します。

    Opening files in the client app when opening them from a hyperlink


    ■Description(内容):

    ファイル内のハイパーリンクに対して、Office クライアント アプリで起動できるよう機能の拡充を希望します。

    SharePoint サイトに挿入したハイパーリンクも含め、ハイパーリンクの指定先を Office ファイルに指定した際、ファイルパスによって動作が異なることを確認しております。

    ハイパーリンクの指定先が..

    ・ファイル パス (例:sites/<サイト名>/<アプリ名>/<ファイル名>.xlsx) →ダウンロードされる動作

    ・ファイル パス+ "?web=1" (例:sites/<サイト名>/<アプリ名>/<ファイル名>.xlsx?web=1) →ブラウザーで開かれる

    ハイパーリンクの指定先をファイル パスとすれば、ファイルのダウンロード後、Office クライアント アプリから開くことは可能ですが、ハイパーリンクに対しワンクリックで Office クライアント アプリが起動されることでより効率的になると考えます。

    I would like to be able to have files opened from hyperlinks within other files be opened in the corresponding Office client app.

    When the target of a hyperlink, including links inserted into SharePoint sites, is an Office file, the opening behavior varies depending on the file path.

    If the hyperlink target is:

    A file…
