  1. Streamline and work out bugs for geolocation and bing maps

    Geolocation and Bing maps was a fantastic idea for integrating into sharepoint lists, but it is not for the faint hearted or the rookie administrator. You shouldnt have to create keys in bing maps for each site you want to apply.

  2. Function to assign permissions to all users in a specified domain

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    特定のドメインを持つユーザーに対し、一括で権限を割り当てる機能の実装を希望します。
    Function to assign permissions to all users in a specified domain


    ■Description(内容):
    数万といる特定のドメインを持つユーザーに対し一括でアクセス権限を割り当てたい。
    CSV ファイルを用いたPowerShell コマンドレットでの追加や、セキュリティグループを使って権限を割り当てる方法は認識しているが、対象のユーザー数の数から、いずれも現実的ではない。
    また、ユーザーを追加または削除したい場合には、都度、GUI または CSV ファイルを調整しコマンドレットの実行をせねばならず、業務に負担が生じる。
    そのため、細かな調整を必要とせず簡易的に特定のドメインを持つユーザーのみがサイトへアクセスできるような機能の実装を希望します。

    I want to be able to assign permissions to all of the users in a given domain, of which there are several tens of thousands.
    I’m aware of methods using CSV files with PowerShell cmdlets and security groups, but neither will function for such a large number of users.
    Also, in cases where we want to add or delete users it is necessary to make changes in the GUI or to the CSV file…

  3. Setting of a secondary language for Classic Sites

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    クラシック サイトにおけるサイトの第二言語の設定について
    Setting of a secondary language for Classic Sites


    ■Description(内容):
    サイトの第二言語のGUI が変化してから、第二言語を未選択の状態で設定を完了することができません。
    この動作は、サブサイトを含むクラシックUIのサイトでのみ確認しております。
    また、回避策として以下の方法を確認しております。
    A. モダンUIのサイトで再作成
    B. サイトにアクセスするユーザーのユーザー プロファイル言語に登録がなさそうな不要な言語を、サイトの第二言語に設定する

    しかしながら、運用上、サイトの第二言語は一切登録したくない、カスタマイズしているためモダンでの再作成は困難である等、回避策の検討ができないシナリオもあります。
    本来、サイトの第二言語は未選択の状態でも設定ができておりましたため、動作の修正を希望します。

    The GUI for site secondary languages has changed, preventing set up being completed with no secondary language specified.
    This behavior applies to only Classic UI sites and their included sub-sites.
    As a workaround, the following process exists:
    Recreate the site under the Modern UI
    Set the site secondary language to a language you don’t need that seems like it wouldn’t exist as an option in the user profile language of users accessing the site …

  4. Sharing .aspx files with large, unspecified numbers of external users

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    不特定多数の外部ユーザーへの .aspx ファイルの共有について
    Sharing .aspx files with large, unspecified numbers of external users


    ■Description(内容):
    現在、.aspx ファイルにおいて "匿名アクセス リンク" での共有ができず、不特定多数の外部ユーザーに共有することができない。そのため、不特定多数のユーザーに SharePoint Online にアップロードした .aspx ファイルを閲覧させるため、.aspx ファイルにおいても "匿名アクセス リンク" での共有を行えるように機能の実装を要望します。
    Currently, it is not possible to share .aspx files with anonymous access links, and therefore it is not possible to share them with large numbers of external users. Therefore, we would request functionality be added in order to allow sharing even .aspx files with anonymous access links, such that large, unspecified numbers of external users can view .aspx files that are uploaded to SharePoint Online.

  5. Create custom permission group allowing users to edit list items, however not allowing new items to be created.

    Create permission group restricting users to edit existing items only, and preventing creation of new items. We have a SharePoint list used for budgeting and only allow new items to be created during specified periods of time, however still want users able to edit existing items at any time. Not seeing any existing permission setting options that allow this scenario. Can one be created, or a custom permission group with these settings created?

  6. Limit the number of accounts which can download files from SPO

    We would like to limit the number of accounts up to 100 for which can download files from SharePoint. We want to block downloading files when user attempts exceed the limit.

  7. User information not reflected in Delve if fields are saved with blanks

    ■Title(件名):
    ユーザー情報の項目を空白で保存した場合 Delve に反映されない
    User information not reflected in Delve if fields are saved as blanks


    ■Description(内容):
    Exchange 管理センター から "役職" 等の ユーザー プロファイルの項目にて文字列を削除し空欄の状態に変更した場合、Delve 画面へ 24 時間以上経過しても反映されない動作となっています。
    文字列を入力して変更した場合は即時反映される為、未入力で保存したい場合には、"-" など記号を入力し回避する必要があります。プロファイル情報にて不要な記号が表示されていることにより、ユーザーの疑問を抱かせる可能があり、その状態が続くのは望ましくない為、未入力で保存した場合でも内容が同期がされるよう機能の提供を希望します。
    If text are deleted and saved as blanks for user profile fields like "Job" etc in Exchange Admin Center, the changes will not be reflected on Delve screens even if 24 hours have passed.
    If there are changes to text these changes will be reflected immediately, so if users want to save without any input, they have to input symbols like "-" to avoid the problem. Users may…

    Please make Japanese filenames searchable on Delve app


    ■Description(内容):
    現在、iOS に Delve アプリをインストールして日本語名で検索をすると検索結果が何も表示されません。

    We hope that a Japanese file search feature can be implemented.

  9. Admin ability to view users recycle bin.

    Admin ability to view users recycle bin. This is critical for criminal/legal investigations. Admins need to be able to view the content of recycle bin without modifying/restoring it. Or, allow admins to restore a user's recycle bin files to another location for further investigation.

  10. Allow unused Onedrive space to be allocated to Sharepoint.

    When employees need to collaborate over centralized files, Sharepoint is more effective than Onedrive. If users have extra space in Onedrive, it would be great to reallocate this Onedrive space to Sharepoint (at least some of the space, perhaps to a certain limit).

    In SharePoint Online, there is no way to reduce network stress exerted when videos are being watched or uploaded. We would like a way to dynamically change the optimal video playback quality based on the network bandwidth available and the size of the videos.

    運用規模によりカスタマイズできたほうが利便性が高いため、アラートポリシーが動作する基準値を設定できるオプションの追加を希望する。
    The standard values created by alert policies aren’t publicized, and they cannot be specified in settings.
    Since it would be very useful to be able to customize these values based on the scale of our operation, I would like the option to be able to configure these values to be added.

  13. Provide option to check out in Browser based editing and when editing properties of a document in a library

    At the moment when existing documents are opened in the Browser for editing they cannot be checked-out, they have to be checked-out prior to attempting to edit in the browser, this is not intuitive or user friendly. Most users will want to act and then be prompted rather than having to remember the correct sequence of things when attempting to edit in the browser.

    Similarly the document properties pane can be displayed in a document library but it does not feature a check-out option so if any of the document properties need to be edited the document again needs to…

  14. chnage the default focus....

    when clicking the help ? in sharepoint, the cursor does not default to the field where text is required, this wastes an operation, in that I have to click into the field before typing, make the text field box the default focus for the cursor. this occurs on all 3 tabs in the help dialog.

  15. Add support for RSS Feed Links

    I find the limitations on what can be put in a link box very frustrating. Mailto has finally been added but now I am finding that I need to use an RSS Feed link to allow users to subscribe, but I have no way of doing so.

    Please change the situation where the heading in global navigation is displayed vertically


    ■Description(内容):
    グローバル ナビゲーションに階層化して見出しやリンクを設定した場合、文字数によっては横に表示されず、縦に 1 文字ずつ表示されるため改善してほしい。

    またはユーザーが、グローバル ナビゲーションに設定する見出しの改行位置を調整できる機能を提供してほしい。
    If headings and links are set in a hierarchy in global navigation, depending on the number of characters they will not be displayed horizontally, but will be displayed vertically one character at a time, so we hope that this can be changed.

    In addition we also hope that a feature will be provided that allows users to adjust the line break position of headings set in global navigation.

  17. Items in Recycle bin should be visible for users who deleted the items

    As current behavior of Recycle bin, users who can post or edit items are able to see the items that had been deleted by another users.
    I would like you to implement a feature to block another users from viewing the items deleted by others. I believe that making deleted items visible only for the users who actually deleted them would be better to improve information security management.

    運用状況によっては、14 日以上の期間で (例えば、一か月程度等) で詳細な利用状況を確認したいシナリオが発生する可能性があります。

    その場合、14 日分だけのレポートでは足りません。

    日毎レポートにつきましても、出力可能なレポート期間を拡張することを希望します。

    We have confirmed that the daily Usage Reports that can be output based on site collections will show output for the latest 14 days.

    Depending on operations, it is possible that scenarios where users need to check the detailed usage status for a period that is more than 14 days (for example, approximately 1 month) will occur.

    In those situations a report with only 14 days will not suffice.

    Thus we hope that…

  20. Add checkbox to site/URL rename feature to disable the redirect option

    When renaming a site URL a redirect site is left in its place. Where we need to reuse the URL we need to use PowerShell to delete the redirect site. It would be ideal to include a 'disable redirect' option in the site URL rename feature to stop the redirect being created. As a SharePoint Admin for a large organisation I'm not also the Global Admin meaning I need to organise for a Global Admin to delete the redirection via PowerShell.
