  2. 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…

  3. Protecting sensitive information in the time taken for a DLP policy to detect it

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    DLP ポリシーが機密情報を検出するまでの間の保護機能
    Protecting sensitive information in the time taken for a DLP policy to detect it


    ■Description(内容):
    現在の動作として、DLP ポリシーを設定しても、機密情報を検出するまでの数分間は、ファイルがサイトのメンバーから閲覧可能な状態となる。
    この空白期間に機密情報を保護できるような機能の拡充を希望します。

    Under the current behavior, even if a DLP policy is set up, in the few minutes it takes to detect sensitive information, it is possible for site members to view those files.
    Please expand on this functionality so that sensitive information is protected during this period, too.

  4. 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.

  6. The SharePoint Admin portal should tell me which compliance polices are applied to a site collection

  8. Links in document libraries should work as a link if clicked from a search.

    Within a SharePoint document library, it is possible to add a link to another URL, (document or web page). When this item is returned in a search result the link SHOULD open the document or page the link points to, instead it opens a blank page, (the "contents" of the link). I am not sure if this is by design or a bug, but the action should be chnaged. As an alternative, such links should not be included in search results.

  9. Teams Created Sites - Auto Assign Site Collection Administrators

    The idea is for any site created through Teams/M365 Group provisioning to have a site collection administrator assigned (other than the M365 group owners).

    I want to archive SharePoint Online and OneDrive content after migrating between tenants


    ■Description(内容):
    テナント移行を行った後、移行元の SharePoint Online および OneDrive for Business をアーカイブとして運用したいと考えている。
    現時点の機能では、SharePoint Online および OneDrive for Business に格納されたすべてのコンテンツに対して権限を制御する必要があり、現実的ではない。
    また、移行に伴うオプションにも該当の機能が用意されていない。
    全体管理者で制御が可能な、SharePoint Online および OneDrive for Business 全体をアーカイブ化できる機能の拡充を希望する。

    After migrating from one tenant to another, I want to use the original source SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business as an archive.
    The current functions for this require permissions for all items stored in these services, which is impractical.
    Also, this functionality is not provided as part of the migration…

  12. 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.

  14. deleting sites under retention policy

    Having to go in and specify exclusions for sites in retention policy before allowing deletion is a stupid design. When you have a mess environment of sites that need cleaned up and you have to keep entering each individual site for exclusion. Whoever designed this had rocks in their head.

  15. Invite specific guest access setting

    If you want to manage guest access permission, you may use permission levels setting to do so. But here you can grant guest users sharing access. I want just to invite the guest user, I don’t want to grant sharing access

  16. Items in lists and libraries limits

    When a list, library, or folder contains more than 100,000 items, you can't break permissions inheritance on the list, library, or folder. Nor can you re-inherit permissions on it. This limits must increased to 500.000+ or limitless. We were not facing issue on AWS but after migrating here we are facing this issue and not able to set permission on a folder. Now rethinking on our migration plan.

  18. Additional Extension needed for MS Workflow 2010

    Right now, our commercial systems use a workflow built in SharePoint 2010. In October, we asked for a 6 month extension for support and functionality for this workflow as we tried to find an alternative solution. That solution ultimately became Power Automate, however, the consultants that we have been working with are not complete yet and with requirements and functionality that is missing from Power Automate, we have found it challenging in some regards to adequately accommodate the change. We are very close to fruition on this project, but with our developers being located in some areas where there are…

  19. Change of the limit to ameliorate the migration to OneDrive/SharePoint (error: it exceeds the list view threshold)

    Hello,

    I am doing migration of on-premise servers to the cloud, and Microsoft products have interesting prospect in that matter. However, I am facing an annoying problem. When I move on-premise data from Microsoft servers, I cannot set the same access right in the folders because there is a limit threshold of 50'000 items (The attempted operation is prohibited because it exceeds the list view threshold). For a company that has several years of data it is very common that they would reach that threshold. I understand that inside the structure, deep in the folders, it might be possible to…

  20. SharePoint list export to csv
