  2. SharePoint and SharePoint Online Change Log

    I'd like to see a change log to SharePoint On-Premises and SharePoint Online and of course the rest of the services/servers.

    What I have in mind is a chronological, grouped by CU/PU/SP for on-premises versions and by date for the services, change log with all the changes to API's, PowerShell cmdlets and features. Very much like the Office Roadmap.

    For instance in the July SharePoint CU we have a new addition to the cmdlets that allows us to bypass the search protocol handlers. In August we had a security update that change the EnableScript for Ribbon buttons added by apps…

  4. Make Set-SPOTenant -UserVoiceForFeedbackEnabled:$false have effect on all modern pages

    Please fix it so that Set-SPOTenant -UserVoiceForFeedbackEnabled:$false will have influence on ALL modern SharePoint Online pages.

    Right now when applying this, it only removes the feedback from the modern Site Pages. Not from any other modern page like the list views or the site contents. This makes its behavior inconsistent and confusing.

    Add a function to check whether a function scheduled for release on a tenant has been deployed or not


    ■Description(内容):
    変更・更新でリリース予定の機能はメッセージセンターに記載され、指定対象リリースで変更・更新される機能の検証を推奨されているが、現時点でその機能が自分のテナントで展開されているかについて確認できる方法が提供されていないため、正確な検証ができない。

    When changes/updates are scheduled for release they are described in the message center, and although it is recommended that we check the functions which are changed/updated in the said release, there is currently no way to check whether or not the change has been deployed in your tenant, so it is not possible to accurately check.
    Please add a way to check if a function scheduled for release has been deployed in a…

  8. hub

    Add Hub Sites in SharePoint Admin UI, instead of just Powershell. It could even be a checkbox to designate a site as a Hub site

  9. Add the categories feature.

    On the page after you clicked “Storage Metrics – Lists”, there are names of lists displayed in line.
    I hope that it can also display the categories of lists just as the same as it displayed in “Site Content”

  10. Enable Permissive Browser File Handling

    I think it would be useful if one could enable "Permissive Browser File Handling" per SubSite instead of doing it for entire Site Collections.

    Or if one could refine the granularity even further: "Per Folder" would be even better! - so one could run little HTML projects from within a Document Library, without compromising the security of any other collection, site or folder.

    SharePoint ドキュメント ライブラリの通知機能を設定すると、["サイト名" に関する通知が作成されました。] とメールが送信されますが、通知の削除と設定を繰り返し行う場合、該当通知が複数送信されることが考えられるため、本機能が停止可能な機能の拡充を希望いたします。

    When you configure notification settings in a SharePoint document library, a mail that reads “Notifications created for <site name>” is sent out, but in a case where notifications are deleted and settings are repeatedly changed, these mails may be sent out in large numbers, and so we would like a way to temporarily disable them.

  12. Administrative management of Sharepoint alerts after creation

    Currently once a list alert is created administratively for either a group of people or an individual it is only possible to delete the alert and create a new one. The target situation would be the possibility to view and edit the specific alert settings for alerts already created administratively for AD groups or individuals.

  14. Permissions for moving and copying

    I Am not sure if this is the right platform to report bugs, but I could not find any other.

    I noticed, that even if there is no right given to a user for moving and copying, it is still allowed by drag & drop. This can cause a huge mess among libraries, if someone accidentally drags and drops folders or files and thus they are easily relocated to a wrong library in sharepoint.

    Is there any setting for drag & drop? If not I think it should be contained within the edit permissions for users/groups.

    Thank you :)

    The list of active sites is nice, but does not include All site. Please add the option to view ALL sites, not just a list of random 'active' sites.

  20. increase Sharepoint online list view threshold

    currently the SharePoint online list view threshold limit is only 5k, due to the same we have to create multiple views to see the documents, this is a major concern for all business users and someof them want to migrate their sites back to onpremise to have the luxary of 25k list view threshold. Please increase the limit to 25k
