    Migration manager, pre upload tasks for running at a later date, so they can be executed from a mobile device like a phone.

  2. Files on demand - separation from OneDrive

    As far as I am aware, enabling or disabling files on demand affects both onedrive and any sharepoint sites synced to the user device.

    We disable files on demand, as our users redirect known folders to onedrive, so to have these files available offline is essential.

    If any sharepoint sites are synced however, this can lead to large sites fully populating the local disk & causing issues as a result.

    To be able to enable files on demand for sharepoint sites, whilst disabling files on demand for onedrive data (known folders - desktop & documents) would be an ideal scenario…

  3. File Collaboration for MS Access database saved in Sharepoint

    Allow users to work on MS Access databases that are saved in SPO and automatically saved the changes instead of downloading it locally then uploading it again. It is not allowing multiple users work on the database

  4. Enable SharePoint domain to be switched to company domain

    Currently our SharePoint links use the temporary domain name that we chose during the "free trial" period of Microsoft 365 for business. I have been told by Microsoft support that the only way to change this to our company's domain name is to open a new 365 account and migrate our email and all our data to that account. This doesn't make ANY sense to me and seems like a bug, since once we decided to purchase Microsoft 365 for business, we moved our company domain name over just fine for our Microsoft 365 email. The same should be true…

  5. "Replace ALL" option is missing in while uploading multiple files of the same name in SharePoint Online document library

    In SharePoint Online document library, when you upload multiple documents of the same name it should display an option called "Replace All" instead of that it only displays "Replace" option, and it is really time consuming to click on "Replace" on every uploaded file, so imagine if you upload more than 200+ file in the document library to replace them with existing file with the same name, then you have to click one by one on each and every file to "Replace". This is a known functionality i wonder how it is not available in Modern experience document library whereas…

  6. WHen exporting sites from SP Admin list of sites, display site admins as email addresses

    When we work with the export function, only names appear: if we have people with the same name on the team--much less across our thousands of people in the tenancy, we have difficulty identifying the "right" one for the site. Exporting with the email address instead, would provide the granularity needed to answer the question of "which Emily Smith"?

  7. Enable SharePoint online 2013 workflows using PowerShell

    Microsoft stated that a PowerShell script would be available to enable SharePoint 2013 workflows for new SharePoint Online tenants after November 2020. I have not been successful in obtaining this script through any service request mechanism. Could you please make this available. We have customers in Life Sciences (medical device design and development) who using SharePoint based systems that are certified compliant to international standards. Because of the certification process, re-engineering their platforms to use alternate workflow technologies cannot be done quickly. Creating new tenancies for new customers is therefore not an option. This is an urgent business limiting issue.…

  8. Sync profile pictures of guest users between SharePoint Online and Azure Active Directory

    We need to sync profile pictures of guest users between these platforms as there is no way to retrieve these profile pictures from SharePoint Online profiles to PowerApps. We can only get the pictures from Azure AD, but since there is no sync between Azure AD and SharePoint, we have to manually upload the picture to Azure instead.

  10. Option to switch off home page title banner from News articles

    News articles automatically populates the name of the sites on the news part if they're not on the Home Page. It would be great if the user had the option to switch this feature off.

  11. Manage who has access to the recycle bin

    More options to manage if and where the recycle bin is displayed and who has access to it. Separate permissions for the recycle bin. Maybe an option to hide it from the user interface

  12. Uptime Report SharePoint

    I would like to have a report on the activity time of the SharePoint Online platform, where I could review the availability report in the last 30 days and the average in hours per month of non-availability, also being able to check which month there was greater service availability in hours how many hours were in a certain period of non-availability of service.

  13. Include in Sharepoint a way for applications such as Kaizala, Teams, Power Flow, etc. to take the time and date that corresponds to each Cou

    Hello,
    The suggestion is that they include in the Sharepoint characteristics a way so that:

    In applications such as Kaizala, Teams, Power Flow, etc., take the time and date that corresponds to each Country and not UTC-00 (defualt), since users and administrators find it difficult to track correctly (statistics).

  15. Enhanced Sharing Permissions Control

    We need to be able to "Grant Sharing" to users just as we do other functions. Sharing Options should include:
    1) Sharing with Tenant Users (View or Edit)
    2) Sharing External (View or Edit)

    in addition, the system should not even offer the user the option to Share with Edit unless they also have the rights.

    We should also have the ability to Allow/Disallow Sharing at the list/library level.

    All external shares should have the ability to set expiration dates (even if its only 1 month, or no expiration).

    The current model leaves with the option to block someone from…

  16. Allow less restrictive access control policy for specific SPO sites

    The ability to control access from unmanaged devices using the SharePoint Access Control functionality with Conditional Access is very useful.

    However, the limitation that individual sites can only have more restrictive controls than the organisation level setting (as described in https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/control-access-from-unmanaged-devices#block-or-limit-access-to-a-specific-sharepoint-site-or-onedrive) is frustrating.

    It would be great if the organisation level setting could be set to restrict access from unmanaged devices but then defined sites that specifically need to be less restricted could be 'opened up' by reducing the restrictions.

    We can do this at a user-level using Conditional Access exclusions but there's no way to apply an exclusion…

  17. Log changes to files permissions due to changes in Sharpoint's sharing policy in the admin center

    When an admin changing the sharing policy from SharePoint's admin center, that may affect files that are already shared.

    We would like to get logs for all the files affected that were affected by this change (via a unified audit log).

    For example, few files are shared via an anonymous link, then the admin changes the sharing policy in the admin center disallowing sharing via anonymous links- we expect to get events\logs for all the files that are no longer shared via anonymous links.

  20. Remove Forms footer

    It would be great if the footer in an embedded Forms survey could be removed. It looks bad on the SharePoint site and causes folks to question it.
