  1. Provide us with the publishing information showing the detailed behavior of "multiple task process".

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):MyAnalytics の "多重タスク処理" について詳細な動作が分かる公開情報が欲しい。

    Provide us with the publishing information showing the detailed behavior of "multiple task process".

    ■Description_JP (内容):MyAnalytics の "多重タスク処理" について現在ミーティング中のメール作成作業 (一定の時間を超えたもの) が多重タスクと見なされることをがわかったが、詳細が分かる公開情報が欲しい。
    一定の時間とはどの程度時間を経過したものか、メール作成作業とはメールの閲覧やメールの下書きを作成している時間も含まれるのかなどの情報が分かるようにしてほしい。 

    When I look into MyAnalytics's "multiple task process", I find that the e-mail creation during the meetings is viewed as multitasking when its task processing time exceeds a fixed period of time. However, the menu of "multiple task process" does not indicates how long the e-mail writing is delayed while a given length of time is set or that the mail creation includes the viewing mails or the creation of mail

  5. Editable top link bar for Modern Document Libraries

    It is seemingly impossible at this time to modify the top link bar that is displayed when in a Modern Document Library. The link to the home site goes away when in a Modern Document Library, and there's seemingly no way to add it to the top link bar navigation.

  6. A new column will not allow checkin with workflow enabled - The file has been modified by error

    When you create a library in SharePoint and have any fields that require user input such as a new column, the workflow will not allow a document to be uploaded. In my case I was using a choice column, I went back in to test with a single line of text as well with the same results.

    Steps to replicate the issue.
    1. Create new document library
    2. Upload a document using the “Upload”
    3. See it works
    4. Add a workflow using SharePoint Designer 2013
    5. Upload a document using the “Upload”
    6. See it works
    7. Add a…

    Allow new external users to set up optionally the receiving of confirmation code if invited.

    I hope the behavior concerning the ”confirmation code” of the feature described in MC121153 to be restored where it originally was. As far as the newly deployed feature is concerned, I must point out that not all the users are currently calling for its usage, and therefore I hope those users to be allowed to select its setting depending on their need.

  8. Allow setting the activity expiration date of "Alerts View" selectively.

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):"Security & Compliance" の [アラートの表示] について

    Allow setting the activity expiration date of "Alerts View" selectively.

    ■Description_JP (内容):​"Security & Compliance" の [アラートの表示] のアクティビティの有効期限を任意に設定できるようにしてほしい。金曜日にアラートが上がったものを月曜日に確認できないのでは意味がない。 

    Please make it possible to selectively set the activity expiration date of "Alerts View" of "Security & Compliance". In the case of the user cannot confirm on Monday that the alert went up on last Friday, it seems that this function does not make any sense. Thus, I hope the function will be improved and it'll be easier to use for users.

    Thank you for your continued support.

  17. Allow Survey Questions to dispaly horizontally

    Allow Survey Questions to display horizontally. We receive a lot of requests from our users to display survey choice questions horizontally. The vertical responses consume a lot of page real estate and would be better arranged horizontally.
