  1. Syncing resource names between SharePoint and Project

    I struggled to sync Resource Names in Project with the Assigned To column in SharePoint, even after verifying that all names were entered the same. I began entering the names manually in SharePoint, and it somehow prompted SharePoint to begin syncing names from Project to SharePoint. I informed my organization's Microsoft Administrator and she tells me that it's a common issue that occurs with SharePoint (i.e., SharePoint begins to function appropriately after a user begins to manually enter data into it).

    It'd be nice if this bug could be resolved so it's not a painstaking process in the future.

  2. This 'Throttling' thing has to stop! TURN OFF THE THROTTLING.

    It's gotten to the point where I/we can't get work done in a timely manner because of it. Support is no help; they basically just tell us "that's just how it is." Things that I have been able to do since the dawn of time with on-prem SharePoint have become tedious. As a SharePoint Administrator I should not be throttled for doing something like selecting a couple hundred documents and changing a property on them. That is basic, basic, BASIC SharePoint functionality. Furthermore, while I don't want to be "that guy," how is it acceptable that we're being throttled on…

    We are considering using retention or information management policies to automatically remove files which have not been updated for a certain period of time, but we would like to notify users of the deletion before it happens.

  5. Allowing the rest of the characters not allowed in file names

    I couldn't find to see if this was already mentioned, but it would be nice to use the other characters in file names that are on Microsoft's invalid character list. Other cloud storage platforms allow them and I feel like it hinders the ability to save files onto OneDrive. Especially if you have thousands of files that get flagged due to the invalid character.

    After migrating from one tenant to another, I want to use the original source SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business as an archive.

  7. App list remains even the app catalog has been disabled

    Even if you disabled the app catalog, SharePoint app list remains in the site. So, I need an ability to remove the app list itself if the app catalog has been disabled.

  13. Retroactive Event Based Retention

    Allow events that have already occurred to trigger retention when the corresponding asset ID is applied after the event takes place.

    SharePoint is assuming that users have already set-up a retention system before starting their online library. When users transfer their hard copy files to an online library they need the flexibility to retain documents according to their appropriate retention period with the remainder of the retention period calculated in the system. For example, when I upload a document from 2015 into Sharepoint and my company policy requires the document to be retained for 7 years, I should be able…

    At present, item storage libraries are managed by the relevant SharePoint site, and so if they do not have permissions on the SharePoint site even SharePoint admins cannot check the capacities of these libraries.
    To monitor the whole tenant, please make it possible for SharePoint admins to check the capacity of item storage libraries across multiple SharePoint sites.

  20. The better managing of targeted audience groups for the News web part in SPO

    I have a suggestion indirectly associated with the News Audience targeting in SPO.
    It is not an issue but rather not the best designed solution, it's about managing the audience groups for the News items in SPO.
    Currently all available audience groups are displaying during searching in Audience input field, including security groups which don't work with Audience targeting (only M365 groups works).
    It would be better just to have the M365 groups searchable by the users, searching for a security groups which doesn't work with Audience targeting feature might be very confusing for the end users.
    The perfect solution…
