  1. Security Trimming for Global Navigation on Modern Sites

    Allow for security trimming of the global navigation on modern experience sites. Hub sites does not allow for true security trimming as users can still see all sites in the global navigation and access could be given by accident when a request is made to access a site.

  2. I would like to have the manage copies feature from classic view implemented in SharePoint Online modern view

    I would like to have the manage copies feature from classic view implemented in SharePoint Online modern view As some of our users are using manage copy it stores the link where the document is being copy and they can decide if they want to update those link with the updated copy of not. However in the new copy feature we can't see where all the document is being copied.

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    組織でドメイン制限している場合のサイト コレクションごとの詳細設定方法
    Method to configure detailed settings for each site collection in cases where domains are restricted in the organization


    ■Description(内容):
    組織単位でドメインを制限している場合に、サイト コレクションごとの詳細なドメイン許可設定については GUI 上からサイト コレクションごとに設定が必要で不便であるため、PowerShell にてまとめて設定できるよう希望します。

    In cases where domains are individually restricted for the organization, you need to apply detailed domain permission settings for every site collection separately using the GUI. This is inconvenient so please add a way to do this all at once using PowerShell.

  5. Show Teams private channel site collections in SharePoint Online Admin center

    When someone creates a private channel in Teams it sets up a site collection that is not displayed in the SharePoint Admin Center.

    Because it is not displayed in the SharePoint Admin Center it is difficult to determine, how much storage these Teams private channel site collections are using.

    Also because we have a storage quota set by default for site collections, because it does not display in the admin center the quota can only be changed through powershell.

  6. Allow Managed Path defaults for both Team Sites and Communication Sites

    Currently, the SharePoint Online admin center allows you to configure a "default" managed path (i.e. /teams/ or /sites/) for newly created sites.

    This configuration under Admin Center > Settings > Site Creation reads as: "Create Team sites under [DROPDOWN]".

    Despite the mention of Team Sites here specifically, the same default is being applied to Communication Sites as they're created outside of the admin center.

    A default managed path should be allowed to be configured for both Team Sites and Communication Sites independently.

    Example:
    Human Resources (HR) requires both a private area to collaborate securely on employee data but also needs…

    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…

  8. How about a better way to publish SWAY content into SharePoint?

    When on a mobile app Sway doesn't load. You can log in, but nothing ever happens? Also, when you use an Embed web part the scrolling feature with a mouse will is very flaky.

  9. Email Alerts for SharePoint Storage Consumption

    Please allow for email alerting when SharePoint storage available space is low at the tenant level. Currently there is no way to be notified when your tenant's storage is running low so it needs to be manually checked on a regular basis.

  11. Setting the time zone at once for SPO sites

    Setting the site time zone is important for using SPO, and it would be great if we could change the time zone at once for multiple sites with GUI or PowerShell cmdlet. Currently, site administrators need to access each site to change it, so it is a time-consuming process for administrators.

    In the case where the IP address shown in the Office 365 audit log has been granted an X-Forwarded-For header, there are situations where that is used as the ClientIP, and there are times when it isn’t. This behavior and the conditions for it are unclear, and it causes issues in using the SOC service, so we would ask that if the IP is inherited…

    As preparation for legal proceedings, there is a need to create a method to retain data for a specified period from a specified time.
    If it is not possible to retain data based on its deletion date, then it is not possible to retain it for a set period from then.
    Therefore, please add a function to set retention policies based on the day a file was deleted.
