  1. 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.

  2. Cover site setting changes in Audit Logs

    Site setting changes must be covered in Audit logs. Currently available audit logs does not serve the purpose as none of the site setting changes have been covered in audit logs. From past few months, we have been facing an issue related to navigation change in a site collection. Some user is adding an unwanted link in Global navigation of a Site collection and due to no audit logs related to navigation, we're not able to find out who is doing this repeatedly. This has become a major concern as the site is being used by large number of users.

  3. The audit log of changes in SPO admin center classic settings page

    The audit log doesn't record activities made in SPO admin center> classic settings, like the "show or hide SPO button" change, which is important for tenant security. Hope this feature can be changed.

  4. Export SharePoint List Comments Field

    There is a great new feature to add comments to list items directly into a SharePoint list. Once a comment is entered there is an icon that displays on the list view. Comments are listed in chronological order in a right hand side panel that displays once the comment icon is selected This side pane provides GREAT details: Time/date of comment, author of the comment and obviously the content of the comment. The problem is there is no way to export this data out of the list with the list objects. What use is the data if we can't use…

    現在条件付きアクセスなどを構成していない環境ですが、テレワークが増えたことで社外からアクセスする機会が増えています。
    MAC アドレスでどの端末がアクセスしたかを確認したいのですが、監査ログでは取得が出来ません。

    Currently, our environment does not have conditional access etc. configured, but with increasing amounts of remote work, the number of times we need to access meetings from external locations is increasing.
    I want to check which devices accessed these using their MAC addresses, but it is not possible to find this information from the audit logs.
    Therefore, please make this possible.

  6. Don't show user PowerPoint display as "Teams Meeting Anonymous Participant" in logs for private meeting

    After a security event at a sister company, we began looking at our own security posture in more detail. One thing that stood out in Cloud App Security logs was PowerPoint file downloads from our COO's OneDrive. The Cloud App Security entries showed the user as n/a but the json details showed it as "Teams Meeting Anonymous Participant". This meeting was internal employees only. The PowerPoint had sensitive information. We were concerned we had a security issue.

    With MS' help, back-end logs showed that the COO was the user that had downloaded from his own OneDrive. He was presenting the…

  10. Add a way to get permission action logs

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    権限操作のログを取得する機能を実装してほしい。
    Add a way to get permission action logs


    ■Description(内容):
    監査ログの機能にて、アイテムの操作に関するログを取得することが可能です。
    しかしながら権限の操作に関するログを取得することができず、意図せず権限が付与された、または抜け落ちてしまった場合に、いつ・誰によって・なぜ権限が変更されてしまったのかを調査することができない現状です。
    お客様におかれましては、多数のユーザーに対して権限を付与したアイテムを数日後に確認したところ、付与したうちの複数のユーザーの権限が外れている状況です。
    手動にて権限を改めて付与していただいたのち、現在に至るまで事象の再発は確認されておりませんが、このような事象が発生してしまった明確なタイミングや原因が不明なままであるため、今後同じ事象が発生してしまう懸念をしております。
    権限操作のログ取得が可能であれば事象の原因究明が進み、再発防止に繋がる可能性が高いため、本機能の実装を強く望みます。

    In the audit logs, it is possible to get logs of actions carried out on items.
    However, there is no way to get logs of permission actions, so if permissions are granted or removed unintentionally, there is no way to investigate who did it, when or why.
    Our customer has found that after granting several users permissions for an item, checking back a few days later shows that some of the users do not have them assigned.
    After manually reassigning the…

  11. Please add "Guest" to reporting options so admins can review usage analytics of SharePoint Sites.

    It would be helpful to have an option to create reports on "guest" usage of SharePoint Sites. Admins can easily see the licensed users, but there aren't really any options for 'guest" users.

    It would also be helpful to have the ability to review these reports for 30+ days as opposed to the current 7 day restrictions.

  19. Activity log of file copy from SPO to OD

    When copy the file in SPO and move it to OneDrive, Office 365 SCC alert policy won’t be triggered so we don’ get any alert email. This is because copying and pasting a file between SPO and OD is not the activity covered in audit log. So please include this activity in the audit log and send an alert if this activity is detected.

  20. compare revision in SharePoint

    When you need to check when change X was done or what is the changes done between each revision instead of opening each revision separately which may take ages if you have a huge number of revision, this will make your life much easier.
