  1. Add Support Partner option from modern site admin page

    The Classic Site Collections page is going away tomorrow, 12/2/20. However there is no replacement for the "Add Support Partner" option.

    The article referenced below tells you to use PowerShell. However, they say to go to a site where you have already added a Support Partner, and use PowerShell to copy that to another site collection. If you need to add a Support Partner to a site collection in a tenant for the first time, there will be no option to do so. I opened a support incident with Microsoft and they confirmed this to be the case and suggested…

  2. Trace who printed documents from SharePoint

    Track who among the Office 365 users have printed a document from a SharePoint site. Currently, only downloads or sync of SharePoint documents can be audited but there is no option yet to audit or review who have printed the SharePoint documents.

  3. Regional Time Zone Management Capability

    Reported timestamp properties in SharePoint Admin Center for Site Listings are reflected in Pacific (PT UTC-8) Time Zone, which differs to reported Time Stamps in other areas of O365 Tenant Admin areas (e.g. Audit Log Searches, eDiscovery, etc...).

    Seeking interest consideration to allow managing the Regional Time Zone settings for all and / or individual Tenant Admin areas to reflect consistent Time Zone timestamps and support accurate reporting or triaging activities.
    This is to help ensure minimal confusion or discrepancy during compilation and review of timestamp information when taken from Tenancy Admin Centers as to when viewing at a level…

  4. Teams and SharePoint sites created under the correct URL presidence.

    At present, when a Team or SharePoint site is created it is using the same URL alignment which does not make sense. For example: (user tenant/sites/site name) is what is occurring within our farm. We have access to use "sites" or "team" but when a Team site is created, the URL defaults to (user tenant/sites/site name) instead of being created with (user tenant/teams/site name) Because both Team and SharePoint are using the same URL setup, it is making support a headache because SharePoint Admins do not have access to Team sites. If teams was used in the URL for Team…

  5. Improved notification of and a means to control the modern user experience roll-out for Office 365

    As pages are upgraded to the modern UI experience, such as the SharePoint landing page that rolled out recently – and more importantly the related search pages – there is currently little notification, and no way to control these pages such that they default to either the classic experience or the modern experience. The customization story doesn’t exist for these pages yet, nor are these pages feature complete from the classic experience. Not having a clear picture on when other pages are rolling out, nor having control over whether we would like to use the modern experience by default or…

  7. Please give us back the ability to disable versioning on a library

    We must have the ability to disable versioning on libaray. Im uploading pdfs that will never change, and they have a workflow tied to them. When I upload a pdf and it runs its workflow, it now has 34 versions!!! Im constantly running out of storage because of this. I called support and they cant do anything to help because sharepoint took the ability to disable versioning out. Please help, this problem will not go away until you guys give us back the ability to turn versioning off.

  8. I know this has been raised before but the inability to rename our SP Online tenant with our updated business name is the single is

    I know this has been raised before but the inability to rename our SP Online tenant with our updated business name is the single issue holding us back. Telling our management team that the new version of SharePoint will be based around a name we stopped using over 3 years ago makes IT look extremely unprofessional. We had been hoping for the last 2 years that this would be implemented by now.

  9. Restore the original intent of the ShowEveryoneClaim tenant property

    With MC129777 Microsoft changed the functionality of "Set-SPOtenant -ShowEveryoneClaim" so that when set to False, it not only hides "Everyone" from the People Picker, but also prevents External Users from gaining access via "Everyone". Meaning, if you wish to hide "Everyone" in order to control the use of it, but also have it grant External Users access - you are out of luck. MS should add a new property, perhaps "-OmitExternalUsersFromEveryone" and restore the original intent of ShowEveryoneClaim.

    Option to hide app tiles in the SharePoint admin center


    ■Description(内容):
    SharePoint 管理センターにて [アプリ タイルの表示と非表示を切り替えます] の項目を非表示に設定した場合、Microsoft 365 ポータルのタイルから SharePoint が非表示となりますが、現時点においては、管理者や権限を問わずテナント内のすべてのユーザーに対して適用される動作となっています。
    しかしながら、本機能については、管理者や特定のユーザーに対しての適用を制御したい場合があるため、適用範囲を指定できるような機能の追加を強く希望します。

    In the SharePoint admin center, if the “Show or Hide App Tiles” item has been hidden, SharePoint is hidden from the Microsoft 365 portal tiles, but at present this applies to all users in the tenant regardless of if they are admins or what permissions they have.
    Since there are cases where we would like to restrict the application of this function to admins or specific users, please add a way to…

    ■Description(内容):
    Microsoft Teams でのアクセス状況の詳細を確認する際、Microsoft Teams からは "分析" が閲覧できますが、より詳細な情報を確認したいと考えています。

    SharePoint Online の "サイトの利用状況" より投稿したファイルの閲覧数を確認することができますが、閲覧しているユーザーを確認することができません。
    "SharePoint 閲覧者" をアクティブ化することで、ドキュメント ライブラリのアイテムにホバーした際に閲覧者を確認することはできますが閲覧者の一覧取得を行うことができないため、閲覧者の集計を行うことができない状況です。

    Microsoft Teams (SharePoint Online) の活用を推進する意味でも、サイト コレクションの管理者において利用状況のレポートを出力できることはメリットと考えています。
    (IT 管理者を介在せずに確認できるためです。)

    そのため、SharePoint Online の "サイトの利用状況" より、サイトおよびファイルの閲覧者をレポートで出力する機能の追加を希望します。
    または、サイト コレクションの管理者にてサイトおよびファイルの閲覧者をレポートで出力する何らかの機能の追加を希望します。

    サイトの利用状況では、サイト内のファイルへのアクセスが指定した日時に、誰がアクセスしているのかなどの詳細情報が確認できない。また、IRM で保護されたファイルについてもアクセス数自体が反映されない。サイト コレクションを管理する上で、ファイルへのアクセス情報の詳細が必要であるため、サイト コレクションの管理者によりサイト内のファイルへのアクセス状況の詳細を取得できる機能を提供してほしい。​
    Detailed information like the date and time when a site file was accessed, the user who accessed the file etc cannot be checked in "Site usage". In addition, the number of accesses for IRM protected files are not reflected as well. As details of file access information are required when managing site collections, we hope a feature can be provided for site collection administrators to retrieve site file access status details.

  15. The new SPO Admin Center misreports storage usage

    There looks to be a 12-24hour delay in the new SPO Admin Center reporting site space usage.
    For example, SPO site and old SPO Admin Center report space usage at 200GB but the new SPO Admin Center reports usage of 150GB.

  16. Monitoring, Reporting and Management of Site Collection App Catalog

    No current Site Listing, Reporting or Monitoring capabilities available within SharePoint Online Admin Center on Site Collection App Catalog.
    This is currently only possible by using PowerShell scripts to interrogate the entire Tenancy Site Collection list and inspecting each Site Collection for the presence of an "AppCatalog" library and respective Feature Definition ID which is not sustainable against a growing large volume of Site Collections within Tenancy to provide timely reporting or monitoring capabilities.

    Seeking interest consideration for SharePoint Admin Center to have UI capabilities to report or list Site Collections that have Site Collection App Catalog enabled as well…

    Will such settings bring any impaction on SharePoint Online performance? User wants Microsoft to provide relevant reference materials that clearly mentioned the impaction on SharePoint performance

  19. Make the default group on Access RequestSettings dialog box be a choice/drop down

    Currently, if sharing is allowed, the only choice in the Access Request Settings is to add them to the default Members group:


    1. If the box is checked: add them to the [site] Members group

    2. If the box is unchecked: add them [site] Members group when the admin accepts their request.

    It would be nice if other groups or permissions were available in The Access Request Settings dialog box (like the [site] Viewers group or restricted read permission).

    Yes, the site admin can uncheck that box but then the site admin has to open each individual request and change the drop…
