  1. SharePoint DMS component, have it create a contact that also populates LegacyExchangeDN attribute

    When incoming email is enabled and DMS is enabled and a list is then turned on to receive incoming mail; an AD contact is created and when using newer version of Exchange, DMS should add some data regarding the contact in the legacyExchangeDN attribute. This will help users using their offline address book without having to have the Exchange Admins run scripts to populate this data to find this newly created list.

  7. Provide us with a "Add current user" to primary/secondary site collection administrator upon creation

    Most of the time when I create a site collection I add my current account to the primary site collection admin. Would be usefull to have a "Add current user" to save me from typing my user name. Somehing similar to SQL server setup.

  8. Control Database permissions from Central admin

    As of current scenario, we have to login on SQL server via SSMS to fix the permissions for the additional services accounts. There are companies who use the different proxy accounts to use different services including SharePoint & 3rd party. There are couple of times when permissions get dropped or missing on content db casue major issue. If we get an option via central admin to fix permission on db will make our life easier. As our admin account already has DB creator and Security admin fix role on sql side.

    I am thinking, if we have another option along…

  9. upon employee termination the manager should NOT have access to the OneDrive account

    If the My Site Cleanup is enabled and a manager is specified for the employee in AD, when that employee is terminated the manager is given access as a Secondary Owner. This allows the manager to view/edit/delete information located in the employee OneDrive account. This can be very dangerous in a couple of ways. First - Confidential or private HIPPA information might be stored in the One Drive account. Second - If there is a legal situation concerning the terminated employee, the manager has the ability to change or delete documents that should be archived unchanged - not knowing if…

  10. this shouldn't take long

    Please change the snarky canned message that popups during certain CA processes from:

    "This shouldn't take long..."

    to

    "This really shouldn't be taking this long!!!"

  11. Incoming SMS (Text Message) Ability for SharePoint

    SharePoint has Outgoing Text Message (SMS) capability but it was identified several times by many customers that they needed to user Incoming SMS (text message) functionality too which is currently not available. this will open the door for much more broader automations in Workflow criteria. I do not know how deep I am talking about (it may depend on Service providers, gateway support etc...) but this particular point has a significant potential (example - one of the client needed to send an SMS alert to their Drivers based on a Workflow Status and then Drivers needs to reply to the…

  12. Add a Search Field with Intellisense to Central Admin

    The more complex sharepoint becomes, the more things there are in Central Admin. Sometimes my eyes glaze over when I'm looking at it all. I'd rather just start typing something into a search field there than clicking around trying to find something I used once and have forgotten where it is at. Windows 10 is good about this. Just type a few letters of what you're looking for and it magically shows up. For example, type ULS rather than click on the link for monitoring and whever else.

  15. Block Files Base on Name not Extension

    My company doesn't use quotas on our SharePoint 2013 environment. Over the course of a few months, a user managed to upload 2TB of data to their SP site. A lot of file names began with 'SBSE_' which is associated to a file sync and backup program. Unfortunately, you can only block file extensions, but not any portion of the file name. It would be useful to be able to exclude file names to help with issues such as this?

  16. User not displayed in "Set Credentials for Secure Store Target Application"

    The current user of a Secure Store Service Target Application cannot be displayed. I can only set a new user via "Set Credentials" but not display the current user.
