  1. "NOW 関数" について

    現状では、"NOW 関数" にサマータイムが導入しているため、夏時間 16 時間の時差、それ以外時間は 17 時間の時差が発生しているので、時期によって設定変更する必要がある。
    ”世界標準時” 等を導入し、より安定にしてほしい

  2. Undo Permission Change

    It would be great to have an undo permission settings in SP. Currently users can quickly rectify the mistakes of accidental deletion of content. However there is nothing that helps to rectify any changes made to the permission model i.e. accidentally re inherit permissions from parent, severing all unique changes made.

  3. Audit Sharepoint Online Administration (Office 365)

    Reports for Sharepoint administration is not available through the Portal. For example, an administrator changed the sharing options outside the organization.
    Tried to locate which user global administridor held this change and not found.

  4. Enable CMIS in Sharepoint Online

    Since OneDrive for Business on the Macintosh does not sync Sharepoint Libraries or Team Sites, I was excited to find an open source sync client called CmisSync. I installed it on my Mac, only to find it will sync with Sharepoint on premise, but not Sharepoint online. Apparently Microsoft failed to enable CMIS in Sharepoint Online. This is a request to review and reconsider this feature. Alternatively, please fix the new OneDrive (DF) client so that I can sync said libraries.

  5. A feature to set default values for version management for the entire tenant

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    テナント全体でバージョン管理の既定値を設定する機能の拡充
    A feature to set default values for version management for the entire tenant


    ■Description(内容):
    SharePoint Online、及び OneDrive for Business におけるバージョン管理が現在はドキュメント ライブラリ毎に設定する必要がある。 そのためサイト、ドキュメント ライブラリ毎に設定が必要となる。 さらなる作業効率化のため、テナントで一括でバージョン管理の初期値を設定できる機能の拡充を希望します。​
    Currently version management for SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business needs to be set separately in the document library. As a result settings are required for every site and document library. We hope the feature will be improved to set default values for version management using the tenant so as to improve work efficiency.

  6. Allow "Allow external iframes" setting to be changed tenant wide / programmatically

    With the HTML field security "Allow external iframes" setting it's possible to allow for embedding of URLs from certain domains. It would be nice if it would be possible to also add allowed URLs op tenant level, as it can be tedious to add these URLs on hundreds of site.

    Alternatively, a way of changing this property programmatically could also help!

  7. Instead of having default sender as no-reply@sharepointonline.com, Tenant SharePoint app should have facility to use specific sender address

    In hybrid environment lots of customization always in demand. One of the case is having specific sender email address for mass communication via Shrepoint Online app to the respective Tenants users hosted in onPrem AD environment.

    Therefore, its good to have app level custom setting to achieve the above

  9. Sharepoint Child Items Permission flag

    In UI we have option to grant permission to child items along with the folder permission using the checkbox "Share everything in this folder, even items with unique permission". However there is no api available for sharing permission for child items via api/ CSOM.

    It would be better to have this feature.

  10. Enable Host Named Site Collections in O365 SharePoint online

    In SharePoint online it would be very helpful to also have host named site collections. We use this to logicall sign and separate our URL's like for departments or business units.
    E.g. https://it.mycompany.sharepoint.com and https://hr.mycompany.sharepoint.com

  11. Roll out ALL changes to the Canary tenant before global roll out

    It is very helpful that Microsoft makes a 'Canary Tenant' available to test existing solutions with upcoming changes to the platform. This helps us to catch potential breaking changes early.

    However, it turns out that only new functionality is rolled out to the Canary Tenant, not other changes. For example this caused major problems with our customers when Code Based sand-boxed solutions were discontinued without adequate warning (other than a general announcement a couple of years earlier without a specific date).

    Please roll out ALL non-emergency changes to the Canary Tenant before rolling them out globally.

  14. Remove extraneous characters from term store data export to excel

    When SharePoint data is exported to Excel, managed metadata columns show up with extra characters, such as 35;#Metals instead of just Metals. Would be better if only the term name got transferred.

  17. Allow CSP admin (delegated administrator) to manage SharePoint site collections

    Being MIcrosoft's Cloud Solution Provider (CSP), I have to manage users, groups and permissions of Site Collections in my customer’s tenant using PowerShell/CSOM as CSP administrator (delegated administrator).

    The requirement is, I cannot use credentials of global admin and Site Collection admin to perform above mentioned tasks. The only credentials I have are of CSP Admin (delegated admin).

    Although, there is an option to add support partner "Add Support Partner" (Foreign principal for "Company" in Role "TenantAdmins" (Global Microsoft Support Tenant Contract)) in SharePoitn Online admin portal . But there is no API or PowerShell commands to add support partner…

  19. Why can't the URL to a SharePoint Online site be changed to a new domain name?

    Unfortunately with Office 365, if you merge with another company or change you company name, you have to start all over with a new billing account and manually migrate email and shared documents on SharePoint just to change a domain name. Many companies merge or change names. This should be easy.

  20. Enable SharePoint Online Usage Logging

    Please enable SharePoint Online usage logging on tenants or allow each tenant to disable or enable as needed.

    We are unable to determine when SharePoint Online sites have last had user activity on it. This will help as part of our overall governance process and perform some necessary cleanup of unused SharePoint Online sites. Microsoft resource confirmed this solution is disabled across all tenants. A powershell command - Get-SPOSite -limit all -Detailed | select * provides inaccurate information as a backend process can run and impact the last modified date.
