  1. Get in SharePoint Online the ULS entries for 'your' correlation id

    In Office 365 / SPO you cannot access the ULS logs to lookup the logged information on error situation. Only option is to contact Microsoft Support. This is cumbersome and takes elapse time, hindering your progress. Required a secure option to on-the-fly retrieve the ULS entries related to 'your' correlation id (checked against the tenant for which the user has authenticated)

    • Allow SharePoint Sites created via O365 Groups to be managed in SharePoint Admin Center

      Each Office365 Group creates a new SharePoint Site, this is not currently shown in the Sharepoint Admin Center so it is not possible to manage specific sharing rules, storage and compute quotas and other advanced settings. Such sites should appear in the Site Collection lists to be manageable.

      • Increase audience compilation

        As a school the ability to set rules and audiences in the admin settings is very useful. However, the current frequency for audience compilation is once a week (on Saturdays). It would be very useful to increase that frequency to twice or even three times a week. Would you consider increasing the frequency of that operation? Thank you.

        • Allow Site Admins to Disable "Return to Classic Sharepoint" Link

          Displaying the "Return to Classic Sharepoint" and "Exit Classic Experience" links, with no option to disable these links, is a terrible idea. When a user switches from the new, modern interface to classic, it allows them to view links that they are not otherwise permitted to view, thereby overriding permissions. I don't want our users to have ability to switch between the two experiences.

          • Email Enabled Document Library / List

            If you enable this option on a document library / list within Sharepoint Online (Office 365) it generates a customisable email address.

            When you send an email to this email address Sharepoint processes that email and creates a new item in that document library / list with the contents of the email:

            - Sender email address
            - Subject
            - Date / time
            - Content
            - Attachments

            This would allow you to use Sharepoint Online as a ticketing system or to log certain emails for any reason.

            • Allow Admin Specification of Properties to Synchronize from Azure AD to SPO Profile

              Enable the same ability that on premise SharePoint environments have to specify what properties are synched to the SPO profile from Azure AD.
              A bonus here would be the ability to add rules for synching properties. ex, If profile property x=? then synch property otherwise skip it.

              • Disable Create News Post from SharePoint Home Page

                Add an option from SharePoint Admin's Settings to disable or hide the new "+ Create News Post" from the SharePoint Home. This is a great feature, but how about the people who are not using it or are not ready yet to use this feature at all?

                There is an option to hide or disable the " + Create Site" link, but nothing for hiding or disabling the "+ Create News Post" link.

                • Disable unlicensed users from accessing SharePoint Online in general.

                  Currently, users can access Site collections no matter if an admin has assigned a SPO license to them or not. The access is only regulated via permissions within Site collections.

                  For our migration of 800 Teamsites from SP2013 to SPO, removing all permissions as the Microsoft support told us, is no feasible solution, not even a workaround.

                  Users should not be able to access SharePoint Online, if they don't have a SPO license.

                    • I want a notification function that warns me before my tenant reaches its memory limit

                      As it is right now, site collection admins receive a notification when the site collection is getting close to the available memory space. However, I would like to have a similar option that informs me when the memory space used for the entire tenant is reaching its limits.

                          • Display sites created by Teams in SPO admin center

                            The SharePoint sites created to support Teams should really be displayed in the SharePoint admin center since they are sites in SharePoint. Indicating they are used by a Team would be good as well to differentiate them from "normal" site collections. It's hard to keep track of the SPO footprint without being able to see the Teams sites.

                            • Allow CSP Delegated Admins to Manage Modern Sites

                              As a CSP, receiving delegated admin access from a customer does not allow you to access modern site collections (Communication sites, modern Team Sites).

                              Delegated admin allows you to access the SharePoint admin centers for both classic and modern sites. In classic, if a site collection has Company Administrator as a site collection admin, a CSP user with delegated admin has rights to the site collection.

                              In the new SharePoint Admin Center, Company Administrator cannot be added as a site collection admin for modern sites, nor can anyone add my account as a site collection admin because my account is…

                                • 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.

                                    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…

                                    • Enable auditing of file actions (open, view etc.) on SharePoint Online

                                      SharePoint Online would solve numerous problems for our business but our involvement with certain organisations means we have to have a full audit trail of when every policy document gets opened, viewed etc. Without this we can't implement SharePoint online and we don't have the resources for an on premises option.

                                      • Factory Reset for SharePoint root Site collection

                                        Would like to have a way to restore my SharePoint online root site to a "Factory Default" clean site collection.

                                        We have tenants where we dev/demo/play and in certain cases we would like to wipe what we did and restart from scratch.

                                        Just deleting the root site collection causes errors.

                                          Hey All,

                                          what I want and I think that a lot off you also want this is:

                                          When I go to let me say my tenant is choco then I must go to https://choco.sharepoint.com/sites/.... to get to my sites.
                                          It is easier to implement that when we go to let me say https://sh.choco.online/....

                                          where the ... is every different site late personal folder and stuff like that

                                          and when you make a teamsite you can then choose to take the following subdomein: ts.choco.online. the only thing that is needed is offcourse that the domain choco.online is the domain…
