  1. Disable "Add Shortcut to OneDrive" for a Document Library

    "Add Shortcut to OneDrive" is a new feature in the last few months. When it was in Public Preview, there was a PowerShell command to disable that feature:

    "Set-SPOTenant -DisableAddShortcutsToOneDrive $true"

    This command was announced in MC217339 of the O365 Message center. Based on my interaction with support in Case 22963247, that PowerShell command is no longer available now that the feature is no longer in Public Preview.

    I would like the ability to disable "Add Shortcut to OneDrive" again. My environment is about 50% Windows 10 LTSB (1607), and when users "Add Shortcut", it syncs the Document Library to…

  3. Albanian language in SharePoint “Shqip Kosovë”

    Dear Sir/Madame,

    I am writing on behalf of the Ministry of Education and Science, of the Republic of Kosovo, regarding the localisation of Office 365 and apps in Albanian language.

    Some of the apps in Office 365, such as Outlook, Teams are already translated and available in Albanian language, but our request is for SharePoint to be localised in Albanian language.

    FYI: the region of South East Europe including countries: Kosovo, Albania, North Macedonia, Montenegro and Serbia have around 7 million citizens whose mother tongue is Albanian.

    Thanks in advance for your support!

  5. Disabled users in AD to reflect in Sharepoint People & Groups (/_layouts/15/people.aspx?MembershipGroupId=0)

    Once we disable the user in AD ( Atributes mail nickname and msExchHideFromAddressLists TRUE ) user still shows in Shareppoint and Delve.
    Once we remove the user manually using SharePoint Online Management Shell user disappears from Delve but it still shows up in Sharepoint (/_layouts/15/people.aspx?MembershipGroupId=0)
    Can this be automated. Once we disable the user in AD it also disappears in every part of sharepoint?

  7. Ability to push "follow sites" and "Add Shortcuts to OneDrive" administratively or in a single interface via teams/onedrive

    This greatly inhibits our ability to deploy this solution to a large number of users..combined with the non-uniform user interaction experience between office, outlook, web, mobile and OneDrive applications, means user frustration and training difficulties. Compared with competitors like dropbox and box where they have a single interface to assign sites, sync folders and attach/share files. All we need is some administrative control and uniformity of experience.

  8. Conditional Access per SharePoint site | Unmanaged device access

    Hello,

    Would be great to apply CA per site and not per user.

    Currently, we can create CA in the Azure portal and then we target this CA to the group of users and then we change per site ConditionalAccessPolicy AllowLimitedAccess/AllowFull/Block;

    But this scenario is limiting operating with the site, as an example, we still want to limit access to the unmanaged devices, but not for one specific site, this cannot be done now, to apply this we must Exclude User from the CA!

    So would be nice if we could apply as an example SiteX:
    1. Allow unmanaged device…

  14. SharePoint User Profile Synch profile Picture naming

    currently the naming follows sAMAccountname_MThumb.jpg
    this is NOT unique in multi domain environemnts.

    please change it (like already done for MySites) in domainsAMAccountnameMThunb.jpg

    This will avoid that in case there are "duplicate" users the overridig of Profile Pictures

  15. SharePoint folder and file list with user column/info

    On SharePoint online export to excel give you a list of folders and files, it will be very useful if a user column is provided to list users who have access to files and folders. If a folder/file is shared with 7 users, there should be 7 rows for each user. The option can be given on export to excel option to export with user or just files and folders list

  17. 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.

  18. Add TEAMCHANNEL sites to active and deleted sites lists in SharePoint Admin Center

    A new type of SharePoint site using template TEAMCHANNEL#0 is missing from the SharePoint admin center lists. As a global admin, I am manually adding 'Company Administrator' as an additional site administrator to all of our sites with a few exceptions so that I am able to run Powershell scripts on those sites. Since I am unable to run a Powershell statement to add 'Company Administrator' I have to do this manually. Ideally I would be able to run a Powershell script or better yet, add 'Company Administrator' via SharePoint site scripts so it can be automated!

  19. Create Policy to 'Mark' files for Deletion

    It would save a lot of SharePoint admins a lot of trouble if you were to be able to turn on a Policy that 'Marks' items for deletion, rather than outright deleting them.

    Allow users to mark items for deletion, as well as unmark them.
    Set the time period to keep the data before initiating the deletion.
    1 day, 3 days, 7 days etc. Maybe even make it a custom fill in.

    Allow SharePoint Admins to confirm deletion before the time runs out.
    When the Deletion time period runs out, files are deleted.

    Allow sending of a notification to the…

  20. Control Sharepoint guest access separately from One Drive access

    At the Admin level, we would like to restrict our SharePoint site access/sharing so that it does NOT ALLOW 'Anyone' access level but, for One Drive for Business, we would like to ALLOW 'Anyone' access.

    From what I can tell, this is not possible because in order for One Drive to be set to allow 'Anyone', SharePoint must also be set at that permissive level.

    Please decoupled the access controls for SharePoint sites and One Drive to allow for them to be set independently.

    Anyone else see the value in this?
