  1. add the feature enabling to delete the file and site along with the contents retention setting applied to SharePoint Online site collection.

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):コンテンツ保持設定について

    Regarding contents retention setting

    ■Description_JP (内容):コンテンツ保持設定を SharePoint Online サイト コレクションに適用した場合であっても、例外的にファイルやサイトを削除できる機能があると設定の手間が省け、業務効率が良くなるため機能追加を希望します。

    To enhance our work efficiency, I hope the additional feature to be implemented that could enable to delete exceptionally the files and sites even in the case of applying contents retention setting to SharePoint collection, which would be helpful in reducing the trouble in setting.

  2. 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.

  5. Let it remain Modern UI, after inserting a Modern UI document library,

    When inserting a Modern UI document library as a Web Part on your home page, I want it to remain to Modern UI displayed.
    For now, when you insert a Modern UI document library as a Web Part on your home page, it displays Classic UI.

  7. Make Machine Translation Service use improved Neural Network translation in SharePoint Online.

    The MTS in Office 365 uses the old statistical translation engine by default. Changing to the new engine is an easy fix on your end, just change the MachineTranslationCategory property to "generalnn"

  8. SharePoint Admin Center Enhancements

    This SharePoint Admin centre is lacking multiple basic things

    1) Sorting
    2) how many total sites are
    3) Segregation of sites on base of template
    4) Define colour coding, if sites are consuming more space in a day

  11. We received "Bad Request - Request Too Long" error when we tested multiple user account on single computer

    We received "Bad Request - Request Too Long" error when we tested multiple user account on a single computer.
    We just try to log-in by Account1 and log-out. Try to log-in by another account (e.g. Account2), repeated this sequence for 10s of accounts.
    We saw this problem on Microsoft Edge and by removing cache on Edge, the problem has gone.
    We believe this is a kind of bug and hopefully resolved in the future.

  12. Update the filters for managed metadata.

    Currently if you have a group of managed metadata that has submetadatas within the group, the filter function do not work as well as it should.

    For instance lets say you have the following terms:
    North America

      Canada
    
    Ontario
    Quebec
    Alberta
    USA
    New York
    California
    Chicago

    and the end users would like to select both Ontario and Alberta for their search, it will only allow them to select one of those choices.

  13. Make level access with sharing links more obvious

    An option to have the default level sharing permission 'view only'. At the moment all sharing links are edit by default but it's not obvious to the user from the 'get link' or 'share' dialogue box that they have to click on the link to change the settings. So whilst we need the option for external users to have edit access to content that's shared with them, this would not be our default unless it was clear at the point the end user is getting the link that they can change to view only. Please make this more obvious.

  14. Sharepoint Office 365

    We have a small team of 5 People within the organisation using Office365 SharePoint. Roughly a year and more ago on multiple instances SharePoint on the local teams individual PC's was not allowing the back of local SharePoint data, so in my particular case the team at Telstra who support Office365 in Australia had to make back ups of the SharePoint data however I have now up to 3 or 4 backups personally and this was caused when the team said that our naming conventions where to long and not acce3ptable with SharePoint online. The issiue is we cannot migrate…

  15. Maintain version history when copying files in Sharepoint

    When copying files in Sharepoint (https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Move-or-copy-a-folder-file-or-link-in-a-document-library-00e2f483-4df3-46be-a861-1f5f0c1a87bc) it should retain the version information of the files moved rather than just creating a new version of the file, basically making the latest version, 1.0.

    This is a useless feature at the moment as it only serves as another method to copy files between sites and is no different than downloading them and uploading them to another site.

  19. Regarding the auto created site collection while creating Office365 group

    I am aware that site collection is created automatically when I create Office365 group, but I do wish not to have it auto created while making Office 365 group.

  20. Provide an option to turn off SP Designer caching while developing..or remove it entirely as it's pointless.

    I've turned off the caching option in SPD settings but I still don't see changes that are made to js/css files unless I add a query parameter to the referenced url. This is a very tedious multistep process because master pages have to be checked out, and then approved all over again.
    Msft tells me "not all caching can be turned off" but can't explain why which is utterly absurd. The caching process seems to be poorly thought out: it seems to cache "some" files to a local machine (at %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\WebsiteCache) only when working in SPD which would be the…
