  1. configure and monitor mysite cleanup task for SharePoint online

    mysite cleanup task is quite a blackbox, especially in SharePoint Online.

    It would be great to get possibilities in SPO admin center and/or at least PowerShell to
    - set when and how often the task runs
    - Monitor results / failures

  2. Custom metadata field for site or site collection properties

    I am part of an enterprise that has multiple companies sharing the same tenant. It would be very helpful if we could classify sites and/or site collections. I'd envision this allowing search filtering as well as an easy way for end users to tell which company a site belongs to (HR - Company A vs. HR - Company B).
    This could be highly controlled using a managed metadata term set.

  3. Add ability to assign an author when posting a News Link

    Add ability to assign an author when posting a News Link to a SharePoint site. Today, whomever posts the News Link appears as the default author, which decreases engagement on the site.

  6. Used capacity for each team site of Teams

    Implement a feature that can retrieve the used capacity for each team site of Teams in SharePoint admin center. The data should be isolated from SharePoint sites’ one.

  7. Idle session sign-out

    In the left pane of the new SharePoint admin center, under Policies, select Access control Idle session sign-out.
    You can define the auto sign-out from minutes until a day, but the pop-up notification can only be set from a minute to half-hour, and the behavior is that you will receive the pop-up after that much idle time and not when you have that time as remaining, which means that you can set as your users will be disconnected in a day, and will receive the pop-up for every idle minute, which doesn't make any sense.
    My request is to have…

  8. [BUG] SharePoint Modern Team Site Create

    Hi,

    I wasnt sure where to report this. But my client uses short acronyms for the sharepoint team sites. One in particular was a site called "Contruction", easiest short name would be "con", so we happily created a team site called "con". However, it doesnt create the SharePoint URL with "con" in it, instead it opts for a random string. We thought maybe the build process was broken, so opted to rebuild one with "contruct" and it went through fine, i.e. it created the SP team site with the correct path.

    Are there some reserved words we cannot use with…

  10. Automatic provisioning of App Catalog when tenant is created

    I believe it's time to include an App Catalog in the list of sites which are created by default with new tenants (e.g. Search Center, Content Type Hub).

  11. HUB Setting to determine if the Mega Menu opens on click or hoover over

    HUB Setting to determine if the Mega Menu from the HUB site opens on click or on hoover over.
    Currently the menu already expands on hoover over by the mouse pointer leading with big mega menus to a lot of irritation at the users side because they often did not intend to open the menu, they just past by the "menu item" to go somewhere else.
    A setting "open on click only" will solve this.

  14. Changing the active site name character width would not be applied to SharePoint admin center

    If you change round brackets width from the Full-width to the Half-width on the Office 365 group name via Microsoft 365 admin center, the change wouldn’t be reflected to its name shown in SharePoint admin center. I would request you to improve this behavior, because even slight character change of Full/Half width should be applied.

    UI
    -------------
    SharePoint Admin Center->Settings->Custom Script
    SharePoint Admin Center->Settings->Connected Services->Block SharePoint 2013 Workflows

    PowerShell

    PS> Set-SPOTenant -DisabledWebPartIds
    PS> Set-SPOTenant -DisallowInfectedFileDownload
    PS> Set-SPOTenant -ExternalServicesEnabled
    PS> Set-SPOTenant -NoAccessRedirectUrl

  19. Access requests should relate to the specific item that the user was attempting to access, and not the entire site.

    Currently when a user requests access ("I'd like access") the Request For field holds the site address and not the address of the specific item that the user was attempting to open when they encountered the "access denied" screen. Users are generally not trying to access the entire site (they have View permissions to much of the content) but specific resources.

    As it is, admins need to message the user to work out what exactly they were trying to use. On a site where different resources are accessible to different user groups, this is really unhelpful and creates work for…

  20. Can we have some support for auto-taxonomy term extraction from a large set of documents.

    In this case we have large set of documents and would like some help to extract the right set of keywords which would help us tag those set of documents and new ones coming in the future
