  2. I want to set a retention policy based on file deletion dates

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    ファイルを削除した日を起点として保持ポリシーを設定したい
    I want to set a retention policy based on file deletion dates


    ■Description(内容):
    ​訴訟対応等に備え、あるタイミングから指定した期間のデータを保持する手段を確立する必要があります。
    削除日起点での保持ができなければ指定した期間のデータを保持することができません。
    ファイルを削除した日を起点として保持ポリシーを設定する機能 の実装を希望します。

    As preparation for legal proceedings, there is a need to create a method to retain data for a specified period from a specified time.
    If it is not possible to retain data based on its deletion date, then it is not possible to retain it for a set period from then.
    Therefore, please add a function to set retention policies based on the day a file was deleted.

  3. Concerning the IP addresses stored in the Office 365 audit logs

    ■Title(件名):
    Office 365 監査ログに記録される IP アドレスについて
    Concerning the IP addresses stored in the Office 365 audit logs


    ■Description(内容):
    Office 365 監査ログで表示される IP アドレスが、X-Forwarded-For ヘッダーが付与されている場合にそれを ClientIP として使用する場合もあるが、使用しない場合もある。明確な動作や条件などがはっきりせず、SOC サービスの利用において判断に困るので、X-Forwarded-For から IP を採用するならば置き換える前の接続元 IP も合わせて表示できるようにして欲しい。

    In the case where the IP address shown in the Office 365 audit log has been granted an X-Forwarded-For header, there are situations where that is used as the ClientIP, and there are times when it isn’t. This behavior and the conditions for it are unclear, and it causes issues in using the SOC service, so we would ask that if the IP is inherited…

  4. Create a report for all shared files and folders on all sites

    Currently there is an option to create a report of all shared files and folders on each Sharepoint site, I am requesting to have the option to create the report from the admin portal / powershell for all sites at once.

  6. add machine name to audit results

    When checking which files were deleted by which user from a site collection in SharePoint Online, the machine name of the originating computer / server is not shown. All we get is a public IP address, a OS build nr and the client software used. The local user's machine name would be much more helpful.

    For example in my case the OS build nr of Windows 2019 Server and Windows 10 are the same, OneDrive clients are the same version on Server and laptop, and we all have our datacenter as internet breakout.

    Currently Office 365 audit logs can have up to 50,000 logs in a single output.
    As we output 5,000 logs in a single day, lots of worktime is needed for checking in the situation where we need to check logs for the past 3 months.
    Thus we hope that the Office 365 audit logs can be improved…

    It is possible to check IP addresses that have recorded accessing pages and files in the Office 365 audit log, however location and address are not shown. I want to monitor access made to public resources by external users, and therefore would like to be able to check the locations and addresses associated with these addresses.

  10. Audit log

    Post deprecation of Site Collection Audit logs in SharePoint Online, it is difficult to get activity logs for activities performed on SharePoint library content through O365 Security & Compliance Center.

    Currently, if we need library content level activity report then we need to provide URL path of each root level folder within the document library. Just giving the library path, only provides library page level activity.

    This option is not of great help when we have 20 or 30+ folders at root level.

    With SharePoint Audit logs reports we could generate the activity report for the entire library without mentioning…

  11. 'Shared with external users' report - Automate on a schedule

    The Site Usage - Shared with external users report is a nice feature, however you have to run it manually and save it to a library. It would even better if we can get this report sent out to the Site Owners of the site or an email address specified on a schedule (i.e monthly).

    This would better assist staff in getting an insight to who has access to what, driven automatically and delivered to their inbox.

    As a motivational way to put our heads in the air and our family out side. We need to get back to basics. My credit is being used because our technology is so advance people that sit on there deceivingly smart ass's put hardworking, honest people to in the poor house and mess up our future and our kids future. We need an algorithm or something that can catch up with one of these pricks and im going to be part of that.

  15. Function disappears "Classic Popularity Reports"

    I have just noticed with amazement that the "Classic Popularity Reports" function will disappear at the beginning of next year.
    This report is far from complete and relevant, but it compensates for the lack of reporting on lists and libraries.
    The information provided by the "Popularity trends" page is incomplete and not adapted to a professional intranet (but rather for web light), exporting to Excel is not even possible!
    Site managers need visibility on their site activity such as "which file is read and by whom?", a function that can be exported to Excel, this is sufficient for 90% of…

    When trying to keep a Site Collection on SharePoint Online for auditing, it uses up the tenant’s storage capacity.

  17. Method for automatically collecting the audit logs of Site Collections

    Method for automatically collecting the audit logs of Site Collections


    ■Description(内容):
    今までは サイト コレクションの監査ログにて自動でトリミングを行い、定期的にドキュメントライブラリに保存することができた。
    この度動作が変わり、自動でトリミングができなくなりました。
    毎回手動でログを取得し、ライブラリにアップロードすることは困難であるため、今までのように自動でログを収集しライブラリに保存される機能の実装を希望します。

    Until recently, the audit logs of site collections would automatically be trimmed and could be regularly saved in a document library.
    However, recently it has ceased to be possible to automatically trim the logs.
    It is time-consuming to manually gather the logs and upload them to libraries, so we would like to see the previous automatic functionality restored.

  18. Apply default Sensitivity Labels to Document Libraries

    We should be able to set a default Sensitivity Label for a document library within SharePoint. It is common for us to store specific sensitive data within specific document libraries and it would make sense to be able to specify a Sensitivity Label to automatically apply to these files and folders. Relying on specifying default Sensitivity Labels for specific users doesn't make sense for us. We have employees that spend a portion of the day working on client-sensitive files and then the rest of the day they may be working on general files that should not be classified as sensitive.…

  19. Distinguish between different sharepoint audit logs of 'file accessed'

    Background
    From a document management point of view, our Knowledge team needs information to support document management and content creation such as:
    what content are people using/accessing (what is important and helpful).
    what content is not being used.
    Are we getting our ROI for content creation, what topics should we being focus more content creation on.
    How are people accessing content.

    We initially saw the SPO Site Usage Information Page but needed to have more granular information and be able to rollup the information for all sites.
    It was suggested to use the Audit Logs. We have tried the audit…

    Enable the "File Plan Report" feature for libraries exceeding the list view threshold of 5000 items (SharePoint Online) or give us an alternative method to view the entire folder hierarchy incl. files, broken inheritance, retentions & rules.
