  1. follower

    In the SharePoint site usage page "_layouts/15/siteanalytics.aspx?view=19" it would be good to have the number of users following the site. This information is not available anywhere but it's very important in a corporate context.
    For an Hub site it would be good to have the number of followers of the Hub and the aggregated number of followers of the sites associated to the hub (nice to have)

  2. Increase the threshold to list views

    Currently, SharePoint Online has a threshold of 5000 items for a list view. While I, as a technical person, understand that the limit is to avoid performance penalties, the customers have a hard time understanding why SP is marketed as having the ability to store millions of records, but they can only manage 5000 items at once.

    Either increase the number or figure out a way to solve this limitation from the user's point of view. Saying "use search center" is not enough, as the users are expecting an Excel-like behavior to filter their information. Search, by definition, requires having…

  3. About Office 365 Video

    On the page of Statistics in Office 365 video, the displayed number of “Watched” differs from the actual number of watched.

  4. SharePoint Site Usage Report has only specific templates

    The SharePoint Site usage report under O365 Admin Portal includes only two templates (Group and Team sites)

    A tenant may have other types of sites like publishing, document center, etc. As this report has only two templates, the report isn't accurate and isn't helpful.
    It will be great if all the SharePoint templates are included in the report.

  5. Content type hub should also propagate workflows

    Currently, they only way to provision a workflow to site collections is to use the exported wsp-files from SharePoint designer. This however requires custom scripting to be enabled.

    For on prem you may use a farm solution but this is not applicable to SPO.

    If this was handled by the content type hub there would be no dependencies on the old feature framework.

  6. improve the behavior that Stream license is automatically to be ON.

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):Stream のライセンスが自動的に ON になる動作について

    Regarding the behavior prompting Stream's license automatically to be "ON".

    ■Description_JP (内容):ユーザーの "Stream for Office 365" と "Microsoft ストリーム" ライセンスが OFF の状況で、Stream の URL を直接入力しアクセスすると、​"Microsoft ストリーム" ライセンスが自動的に ON になるため、アプリ ランチャーにて "Stream" が表示され、動画のアップロードが可能となる。自動的に ON になる動作の改善を希望します。また、ユーザーごとに Stream の利用が制限できる機能の実装を希望します。

    In case I enter Stream's URL and directly get accessed it in the state that an user's "Stream for Office 365" and "Microsoft Stream" license are respectively OFF, its "Microsoft Stream" license become automatically ON so that "Stream" is displayed in an app launcher and its video can be uploaded. I hope the behavior to be improved,

  7. Please Fix IRM related "Errors" in SP2013

    Please fix this unnecessary noise that fills the ULS logs and various event logs.

    Despite the fact that my SharePoint 2013 farm is NOT set to use IRM/AD-RMS at all, and despite the fact that our end users do not use IRM on their office documents, we are seeing an insane quantity of IRM related noise in our ULS logs and in our event logs on our Web Front Ends. I found a registry hack that gets rid of most of that noise but later discovered that it prevents the installation of cumulative updates and service packs.

    ===Examples from the…

  8. Allow concurrent editing of excel workbooks in the client application

    All co-authoring should be consistent. Co-authoring in Excel (the client) would have huge value. The web editor really does not work for power users.

  9. Make it so that access permissions that only allows for uploading can be created

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    アイテムのアップロードのみが可能なアクセス権を付与できるように要望します。
    Make it so that access permissions that only allows for uploading can be created


    ■Description(内容):
    [投稿] 権限を付与することでアイテムのアップロードが可能とはなるが、同時にアイテムの編集および削除も可能となるため、[アイテムの編集] および [アイテムの削除] のアクセス権を外し権限を作成すると、アップロードは可能となるがエラー メッセージが表示されるため改善を希望します。
    Uploading of items is made possible by granting "Post" permissions, but at the same time editing and deletion of items becomes possible as well. We can make permissions that exclude the "Modify item" and "Delete item" access permissions, but an error message appears when uploading items. Thus we hope that new permissions can be made like what we are doing but without having any error message appearing.

  10. Provide an option to block SharePoint 2013 Workflows

    While we can block SharePoint 2010 workflows from either allowing new workflows or existing workflows from running via PoSh on a Web Application, we need this same functionality for SharePoint 2013 workflows.

    Specifically, we need options to:

    1) Prevent all 2013 workflows from running
    2) Prevent the creation of new 2013 workflows
    3) Prevent the modification of existing 2013 workflows

    Similar to 2010, these should be Web Application scoped options.

  11. On classic modern, by clicking on the folder’s name displayed at the top of the document library, it goes back to the top of the library.

    I created some layers of folders in the library. After accessing the folders, all upper layers’ name and the current folder name are displayed on the top, but after clicking on the current folder name, it will return to the top of the library. Also, this issue only happens on a folder with Japanese characters, not on a folder with full alphabet. Since this issue cause a lot of troubles, please help to improve it.

  12. Send OneDrive for Business deletion mail in the language of the manager

    When a OneDrive for Business account is scheduled for deletion the manager will be the new manager for 30 days. He also gets a email with the information and also the link to the OneDrive of the user.

    Please send this email to the manager in the language which he has configured in the regional settings.

  14. Threshold for Lists SharePoint Online & Export Calendar to Outlook

    The threshold of the lists (including calendars) is 5000 currently. Once the limit is exceeded, it seems that there's nothing you can do with the list. You can't open / edit / delete any events, can't export the calendar items, can't open with Outlook or Acess, ... Of course that you can't change the threshold either. The threshold should be allowed to change, or there should be a way to export the data. Most businesses will have more than 5000 events in their public calendars. This is very inconvenient for business users.

    Another suggest is to add the export SharePoint…

  15. Block End Users from Browsing Public App store

    Currently there is an option in Central Admin to disable access to the public SharePoint store to get Apps. However when this is enabled, it still allows end users to browse the public store, but it just blocks them from downloading Apps/Add-Ins. It will instead add their requests to the App Requests list in the App Catalog. It would be nice to completely block and disallow access to the public SharePoint store.

  16. Targeted Stretched Farm Support

    SharePoint supports a 1ms/1Gbps response time between SharePoint and SQL Server. Not all Service Applications require this level of latency. It would be great if the PG could release specific numbers for specific Service Applications (e.g. UPA must be 1ms, Word Automation Services 100ms, and so forth) or allow for variance for latency support, e.g. 1ms - 15ms fully supported.

  18. Add support for header anchor links in mega menues

    Last year MS released the header anchor link function which enabled the possibility to link to different parts within a web page. Anchors is an extremely important and fundamental function that has been around since HTML was invented. It is a vital function for users to enhance navigation and information finding. In our case a company intranet.

    Currently it's not possible to use these "header anchor" links in Sharepoint mega menu. If you try to paste an anchor link to a mega menu it cuts off the anchor part of the included link. MS 365 Tech Lead Stanley confirms this…

  20. Sharepoint online License Pool

    Enterprises should be able to purchase a plan that would cover any unlicensed users that would consume content from Sharepoint.

    Today Licenses enforcement for Sharepoint online is on the honor system (until audited anyway). A licensed user can share content with an unlicensed user and the unlicensed user can consume that content. For some larger enterprises there is no need or apatite to provide every employee with a license but there is a need or at lease a potential for unlicensed users to consume content. These action would leave the company exposed to compliance risk. As a result adoption is…
