  1. Second Stage Recycle bin

    Make it easier to get to the second stage recycle bin. Right now you have to scroll to the bottom and hope to click on the link to the second stage recycle bin before the infinite scroll feature adds more items from the first stage. Put the link on the left nav or at the top, or add a link in site collection settings.

  2. Notification settings for SharePoint Online

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    SharePoint Online の通知設定について
    Notification settings for SharePoint Online


    ■Description(内容):
    SharePoint Online のサイトに通知設定をした際に、通知の設定を作成したユーザーしか設定内容が確認できなく編集もできない。
    そのため、通知設定の内容を管理者ユーザーでも確認および編集できるように機能の拡充を希望します。​
    When performing notification settings for SharePoint Online, only the user who created the notification settings can check and edit it.
    As a result, we hope that this feature can be changed to enable administrators to check and edit the content for notification settings.

  5. "Last activity (UTC)" of sites should be exported as UTC in CSV

    SharePoint Admins can export a list of all sites as a CSV file from active sites page in the modern SharePoint admin center.
    The value of [Last activity (UTC)] column is exported as date & time of PST/PDT. It should be DATE of UTC.

  6. Enable Setting ConditionalAccessPolicy without Interactive PowerShell Session

    Currently, when running 'Set-SPOTenant -ConditionalAccessPolicy BlockAccess', the command prompts for user confirmation, which cannot be bypassed either using -Force or -Confirm:$false. This means that the command cannot be run non-interactively in a PowerShell script.

    Request that the cmdlet parameter be fixed so that it allows running in a non-interactive PowerShell session.

    Confirmed in the latest Microsoft.Online.SharePoint.PowerShell module, version 16.0.20212.12000.

  7. Add settings to restrict use of the “Open in Explorer” function

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    [エクスプローラーで開く] 機能を制御する設定の実相を希望します。
    Add settings to restrict use of the “Open in Explorer” function


    ■Description(内容):
    現在[エクスプローラーで開く] 機能の制御を行うためには、”クライアント統合機能" の権限を無効にする方法での実現になるが、権限を変更するとその他機能にも影響が出るため、[エクスプローラーで開く] 機能のみを制御できるよう設定値として実装するよう希望します。

    Currently, in order to restrict the use of the “Open in Explorer” function, you have to disable the “client integration function” control, but since this affects other functions too, please add a value in the settings to specifically restrict the “Open in Explorer” function.

  12. Make it so that access permissions that only allows for uploading can be created

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    アイテムのアップロードのみが可能なアクセス権を付与できるように要望します。
    Make it so that access permissions that only allows for uploading can be created


    ■Description(内容):
    [投稿] 権限を付与することでアイテムのアップロードが可能とはなるが、同時にアイテムの編集および削除も可能となるため、[アイテムの編集] および [アイテムの削除] のアクセス権を外し権限を作成すると、アップロードは可能となるがエラー メッセージが表示されるため改善を希望します。
    Uploading of items is made possible by granting "Post" permissions, but at the same time editing and deletion of items becomes possible as well. We can make permissions that exclude the "Modify item" and "Delete item" access permissions, but an error message appears when uploading items. Thus we hope that new permissions can be made like what we are doing but without having any error message appearing.

  14. Provide a simple way to re-order choices for a choice column

  16. Create a Read-Only SharePoint Administrator role in Admin Center

    Create a Read-Only SharePoint Administrator role in Admin Center. With this option, a Servicedesk (or other departments/users) can pick up a lot of incident tickets, without changing. In this way they can learn the basics of SharePoint, before they will get the normal SharePoint Admin role, beside that the normal SharePoint Administrators, can use the rest of the time (they don't have to spend of incidents), to be innovative.

    Provide more public information regarding the setting values that can be retrieved with Get-SPOSite

    2月頃から、Get-SPOSiteで取れる設定値が以下の10個増えているかと思います。

    RelatedGroupId
    GroupId
    ProtectionLevelName
    DefaultLinkToExistingAccess
    AnonymousLinkExpirationInDays
    OverrideTenantAnonymousLinkExpirationPolicy
    ExternalUserExpirationInDays
    OverrideTenantExternalUserExpirationPolicy
    InformationSegment
    BlockDownloadLinksFileType

    しかしながら、公開情報には使用方法などについての明確な情報ががありません。Get-SPOSite コマンドの公開情報に上記プロパティの詳細な情報を追加することを希望します。
    We thought that the setting values that can be retrieved with Get-SPOSite have increased by the following 10 items from around February.

    RelatedGroupId
    GroupId

    AnonymousLinkExpirationInDays

    However there is no confirmed information regarding the usage methods in public information. We hope that detailed information of the above properties will be added to public information for the Get-SPOSite command.

  18. Provide option to define default sensitivity label for OneDrive and option to modify existing OneDrive sites using the GUI

    Please give us the option to define the default Sensitivity label a newly created OneDrive site should receive. It would also be handy to have the option to modify the Sensitivity label of a OneDrive site using the OneDrive Admin portal, just like we can do with SharePoint sites where we are able to modify the Sensitivity per site.

    ■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。

    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.

  20. Scan directly to sharepoint

    When you click the upload button in a SP doc lib, you get 'File', 'folder' and scan options. Likewise when adding an attachment to a list item, same options.

    This can then scan from attached scanner, or camera on a phone and upload it directly.
