  1. For E5 customers we really need 180 days to restore deleted site collections

    The current restoration process max is 93 days. For high value E5 customers, it would be nice to extend this beyond the normal setting. I can understand why its not needed for most users but if you're a major user, we should be able to add on a license to extend it (like the ULA logging now extended to 1 yr)

  2. Improvements to the information concerning faults and automatic recovery described in “Service health”

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    "サービス正常性" に記載する障害の基準の明示及び自動復旧で改善した障害の情報を開示する機能の拡充
    Improvements to the information concerning faults and automatic recovery described in “Service health”


    ■Description(内容):
    自動復旧で障害が改善した場合、"サービス正常性" に記載もないため、障害の状況も把握できず、対応に苦慮している。
    "サービス正常性" に記載する障害の基準の明示及び自動復旧で改善した障害の情報を開示するを希望します。

    When a fault has been resolved by automatic recovery, it does not show in “Service health”, so we don’t know what the nature of the failure was, and therefore we don’t have a satisfactory explanation for it.
    Please make it so that the failure criteria and information about failures resolved by automatic recovery are accessible in “Service health”.

  4. Second Stage Recycle bin

    Make it easier to get to the second stage recycle bin. Right now you have to scroll to the bottom and hope to click on the link to the second stage recycle bin before the infinite scroll feature adds more items from the first stage. Put the link on the left nav or at the top, or add a link in site collection settings.

  6. Backup to affordable non-Microsoft cloud (e.g. Wasabi) for offsite protection

    Wasabi ( http://www.wasabi.com ) is a very low cost cloud storage that I like to recommend all my customers to use as the repository for offsite backup. Hope it can provide support for this cloud storage and other non-Microsoft cloud for disaster recovery, like what Cloudberry ( http://www.cloudberrylab.com ) and CloudBacko ( http://www.cloudbacko.com ) are offering currently.

  7. Enable to restore the previous version of the entire list

    Currently we can restore the previous version of an item on a list one by one using version history. I would like to see that option at the list level.
    For example this week I had to restore 500 items ONE by ONE because of a manipulation mistale.

  8. Onedrive を他者に公開せずに、自分だけのストレージとして利用したい I want to use Onedrive as my own storage without exposing it to others

    Onedrive for Business を他者に公開せずに、自分だけのストレージとして利用できるようにしたい。
    個人用 OneDrive だと容量制限がとても小さく、OneDrive for Business を個人の権限で他の人に見せないように設定する機能の実装を要望します。

    I want to be able to use Onedrive for Business as my own storage without exposing it to others.
    Personal OneDrive has a very small capacity limit, and I would like to implement a function to set OneDrive for Business so that it cannot be seen by others with personal privileges.

  9. Don't keep copies of files in version history if bytesize/hash hasn't changed

    Currently every time you update sharepoint metadata for large video files in a document library, a new version is created and a copy of the large file is stored. All these versions add up fast to maximum storage limits.
    Please keep a reference to the original file if nothing to bytesize or hash has changed and only the library's metadata was updated.

  10. Ability to monitor file restore / rollback jobs

    As the time for a restore job can be lengthy, it would be helpful to have a way to monitor its progress and alert when completed. That way when the user calls for an update we can give a better estimate than "later". Big difference between 1 hour, 1 day, 1 week, and 1 month. thank you.

  14. Feature Enhancement - Library Restore Feature

    Now that we have the ability to restore a Library back to any point in time within the last 30 days it would be great to have the ability to select specific dates and times with which to restore. Currently if you're wanting to restore a specific bulk-change in a document library without affecting other folders that may have been edited with changes you want to keep, you have to take a backup up the data you know you want to keep, restore back to that point in time, and then restore the files you didn't want to make changes…

  15. Auto Archive Expired Groups

    Like the idea that groups can be set to expire; however, the option needs to be extended to allow for backing up that data. Even it is is based off of Azure Backup. Data should never simply be "Deleted"

  16. Recycle Bin - Ability to see full Name of deleted document and associated properties

    It's impossible to see the full document name of most of the deleted items that I have in the Site Collection Recycle Bin. I thought I would be able to just expand the columns to get that information - but nothing is allowed.

    There are lots of documents that start with the same first part of the name - and what will identify the document that needs to be restored is in the part that isn't displayed. There seems to be no way to view the full name.

    There is no way to edit the view to give more details…

  17. restore fail

    Using the SharePoint recycle bin locks up when trying to restore a file or folder that has already been replaced. When we delete a file and try to restore from the recycle bin if the file / folder is in the SharePoint site the restore hangs. I tried the same process using the Power shell commands and the command just hangs, I waited 24 hours and the recovery process never recovered anything?

  18. Please enable granular restore capabilities! Item Level, Folder Level, etc

    Please enable granular restore capabilities! Item Level, Folder Level, etc

    Or, at the very least, please add the ability to restore a site collection to an alternate path. The restores right now are not acceptable for a service that houses production data. Overwriting an entire site collection for specific pieces of content is very destructive!

  20. The file’s name changes to a messy code when using decompression software to download files

    If you download multiple files using decompression software, the file’s name will change to a messy code.
    I really want this function can be improved.
