  1. 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.

  2. Setting a permissions level that hides setting status for access rights, displays documents, and enables downloading

    ■Title(件名):
    アクセス権の設定状況を表示せず、ドキュメントの表示、ダウンロードができるアクセス許可レベルの設定について
    Setting a permissions level that hides setting status for access rights, displays documents, and enables downloading


    ■Description(内容):
    アクセス許可レベルで "アイテムの表示"、"ページの表示"、"開く権限" にチェックを入れたカスタム権限を作成した場合、アクセス権の設定状況は表示されないが、ダウンロードもできない。
    そのため、"アイテムを開く" にチェックを入れると、ダウンロードできるがアクセス権の設定状況が確認できてしまうため、アクセス権の設定状況が確認できない、かつダウンロードが可能と設定ができる機能を実装してほしい。 ​
    If users create a custom permission in "Permissions Levels" and checks "Display Items", "Display Pages", and "Open Permission", the setting status for access rights will not be displayed, and downloads cannot be done as well.
    As a result, if "Open Item" is checked, download becomes possible, but setting status for access rights can be confirmed as well, so we hope that a feature to prevent the confirmation of setting status for access…

  3. 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.

  7. Cannot find a summary view of what each External Users have acces to various SharePoint sites

    There's no way to capture all the SharePoint sites an external user have access to. There are times these external users are long time company partners or short period contractors who need provision access to a certain SharePoint site or another SharePoint site at different time. Beside deleting their user profiles in SharePoint Admin, there is a possibility of deleting their profiles in Azure as part of the deletion process.

  8. Provide script injection on tenant level

    This idea is somewhat similar to what Marc Anderson posted here: https://sharepoint.uservoice.com/forums/329220-sharepoint-dev-platform/suggestions/10533423-add-a-load-javascript-link-to-master-page-settin. But instead of limiting this capability to a site collection scope, it would be great to have an equal option on tenant level as well.

    Simply provide the option to set some URLs to be loaded as additional JavaScripts on each page within the SharePoint tenant. The simplest use case would be to enable analytics like Azure Application Insights or Google Analytics. Each URL gets loaded within the script manager of a SharePoint page and the script then can take care of loading other resources when needed.

    As part of the future roadmap for the SharePoint Framework, we are looking into doing something similar as explained in here. Stay tuned, more public information hopefully soon.

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

    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.

    Users without full control permissions can give permissions to other users, but cannot delete them. Thus I want to suggest making it so that those users can delete permissions, and switch between “Edit”and “Display”.

    In the SharePoint Admin Center, and in the Term Set Management section of the Site Management screen of a Site Collection, it is possible to add terms and term sets. However, it is not possible to confirm the number of sets or terms that have been registered.
    Because there is a limit on the number of terms and term sets, I would like a method by which to confirm the number of existing…

  14. Provide Guidelines on Recommended or Limitations of SharePoint Online Configuration

    In earlier versions of SharePoint (for on premise) there were guidelines on "boundaries and limits" for the product (for example https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/install/software-boundaries-and-limits-0 ). It would be useful if this same information was available for SharePoint Online if not talking about actual limitations (if none exist) but perhaps talking about recommendations for performance effective use. We have clients that are working with 10 or (many) more managed metadata columns and expecting day-to-day performance of the libraries (browsing, etc) to be unaffected, however, without guidance from Microsoft we cannot convince them otherwise.

  15. 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…

  16. Allow admins to delete users from Office 365 admin center via GUI

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    Office 365 管理センターからユーザーを削除する際、GUI上から削除を可能にしてほしい。

    Allow admins to delete users from Office 365 admin center via GUI


    ■Description(内容):
    現在、Office 365 管理センターの "削除済みユーザー" からユーザーを完全に削除する場合、PowerShell を利用する必要があると認識をいたしております。しかしながら、PowerShellのみの方法だと手数が多く、時間もかかり作業効率も悪いため、GUI上でも可能な操作にしていただきたいです。

    Currently it is required to run the PowerShell cmdlet to fully delete a user from the Office 365 admin center “deleted user”.

    For improvement of usability and work efficiency, it will be great if we could delete users directly on GUI.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  17. About displaying renamed the default group site owner group

    表示についてデフォルトのグループサイト所有者グループの名前が変更されました

    グループサイトの既定の所有者グループの名前を変更した後、ホームページで "サイトのアクセス許可"を表示すると、グループ名は変更されません。
    例えば。 デフォルトの共有ポイントグループの名前を「グループ名所有者」に「新しい所有者グループ」に変更します。 グループサイトのホームページで、設定メニューでサイトの権限をクリックすると、デフォルトの所有者グループの名前は引き続き「グループ名の所有者」として表示されます。

    After renaming group site default owner group, view "Site permissions" in home page, the group name is not changed.
    eg. Rename the default sharepoint group: "group name owners" to "New owner group". At group site home page,click site permissions in settings menu, the name of default owner group is still displayed as "group name owners"

  18. Sort Out the End User Permissions on SharePoint Online!

    The permissions model in SharePoint has become a terrible mess. Please read my blog for more information :

    http://www.letscollaborate.co.za/26-reasons-why-modern-sharepoint-online-site-permissions-are-a-hot-mess/

    The permissions model has become completely unmanageable and Microsoft needs to sort this out as a matter of urgency.
