  1. Allow "Allow external iframes" setting to be changed tenant wide / programmatically

    With the HTML field security "Allow external iframes" setting it's possible to allow for embedding of URLs from certain domains. It would be nice if it would be possible to also add allowed URLs op tenant level, as it can be tedious to add these URLs on hundreds of site.

    Alternatively, a way of changing this property programmatically could also help!

  2. Roll out ALL changes to the Canary tenant before global roll out

    It is very helpful that Microsoft makes a 'Canary Tenant' available to test existing solutions with upcoming changes to the platform. This helps us to catch potential breaking changes early.

    However, it turns out that only new functionality is rolled out to the Canary Tenant, not other changes. For example this caused major problems with our customers when Code Based sand-boxed solutions were discontinued without adequate warning (other than a general announcement a couple of years earlier without a specific date).

    Please roll out ALL non-emergency changes to the Canary Tenant before rolling them out globally.

  4. Enable calendar overlays across site collections when using HNSC

    We've just converted the site collections at a client site from path-based site collections to host-named site collection and discovered that calendar with overlays of calendars from other site collections do not work once we've made the switch to HNSC.

    Please enable the ability to use calendar overlays using calendars stored in other host-named site collections. This is an issue with host-named site collections that is disappointing considering Microsoft is recommending the use of HNSC.

  5. 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…

  6. A feature to set quota limits for individual users, groups, and channels for Microsoft Stream

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    Microsoft Stream におけるユーザー、グループ、チャンネルごとにクォータ制限を設定する機能について
    A feature to set quota limits for individual users, groups, and channels for Microsoft Stream


    ■Description(内容):
    初期作成時に決まった容量を指定し、必要に応じて特定のグループやチャンネルに対して容量を拡張する事を想定しております。そのため、Microsoft Stream におけるユーザー、グループ、チャンネルごとに任意でクォータ制限を設定する機能の実装をお願いいたします。​
    We are assuming that capacity is determined and specified at the time of initial creation, and expanded for specific groups or channels as necessary.
    For this reason, please implement a feature to set quota limits arbitrarily for each user, group, and channel in Microsoft Stream.

  7. We want to check if Stream videos have been viewed completely instead of being unfinished

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    Stream の動画にて、視聴途中ではなく視聴が完了したかを確認できるようにしたい
    We want to check if Stream videos have been viewed completely instead of being unfinished


    ■Description(内容):
    現行の Stream の挙動では、視聴が途中の動画であったとしても、[*回のビュー]​ として表示され、視聴途中か視聴完了したか区別ができません。
    また、監査ログにおいても同様に、視聴途中と視聴完了の区別ができません。
    視聴が完了したか確認できる機能の実装を希望します。
    Currently Stream behaves in a way that even if a video was viewed incompletely, " * views" will be displayed and it is not possible to distinguish whether the video is unfinished or completely viewed.
    The same goes for the audit log, it is not possible to distinguish between an unfinished video and a completely viewed video.
    We hope that a feature to check if viewing is complete will be implemented.

  8. Remove characters limitations in folders and file names

    If it's a valid name in Windows, it should be also in Sharepoint.

  9. 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)

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  17. 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…

    Currently, in the version settings of document libraries, minor versions can only be deleted manually. It would reduce the amount of work we have to do if it was possible to select version management in the settings of information management policies and have it automatically delete minor versions, so please make this possible.
