  1. 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.

  2. 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.

    Function to reduce the load on networks when uploading or watching videos


    ■Description(内容):
    SharePoint Onlineでは、動画のアップロードや再生に対してネットワーク負荷を軽減する機能がありません。 動画の使用可能なネットワーク帯域幅とサイズに基づいて、最適なビデオ再生品質を動的に選択する機能の追加を希望します。
    In SharePoint Online, there is no way to reduce network stress exerted when videos are being watched or uploaded. We would like a way to dynamically change the optimal video playback quality based on the network bandwidth available and the size of the videos.

  5. Send warning email for site storage limit to team owner by default

    ■Title(件名):
    Teams に紐づく SharePoint Online サイトの記憶域の警告メールの送信先について

    Send warning email for site storage limit to team owner by default


    ■Description(内容):
    現在、サイトの記憶域にて設定した警告レベルに達した場合や、記憶域の容量が上限値に達した場合は、サイト コレクションの管理者宛に通知メールが送信される動作であるが、Teams からチームを作成した場合や Office 365 グループを作成した際に紐づく SharePoint Online サイトにて、新たにサイト コレクションの管理者としてユーザーを設定する必要があるため、デフォルトで チームの所有者 (または所有者 グループのメンバー) に通知メールが送信されるように機能改善を要望します。

    As we know when site storage reaches the set warning level or capacity limit, a warning email will be sent to the site collection admin. However, if a user created a team via Teams, the user has to be set as the site collection’s admin at the SharePoint Online site which is linked when Office 365 group was created.

    For smoother operation, send warning…

  6. 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…

  8. The Audit Log of downloaded files

    In Teams, even the files are downloaded, the status of Audit Log on Office 365 is still displayed as “access”.
    So it is difficult to differentiate whether the file was downloaded or accessed.
    It would be really helpful if the correct status can be displayed, after the files were downloaded.

  10. Function to create a template from a list with information management policies set

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    情報管理ポリシーの設定されたリストをテンプレート化できる機能の実装
    Function to create a template from a list with information management policies set


    ■Description(内容):
    情報管理ポリシーの設定されたリストを複数作成する場合、作成されたリストごとに情報管理ポリシーを設定する必要があり、作業に時間がかかってしまう。また、リストをテンプレート化した場合には、設定された列などの情報はテンプレート化されるが、設定された情報管理ポリシーはテンプレートとして含まれないため、設定された情報管理ポリシーを含めたリストテンプレートとして登録できるように機能の実装を希望します。
    When one wants to create a number of lists with information management policies set on them, it is necessary to set the policy on each individual list, which takes a lot of time. Alternatively, if the list is used to make a template, the information contained in the rows etc correctly transfers to the template, but the information management policies do not. Therefore I would like to be able to create templates from lists, and keep the management policies intact.

  14. Bug: SharePoint Timer Job "job-timer-recycle" without function

    The last Sebtember 2016 update for SP 2016 has, unfortunately, still a serious bug in the “SPTimerRecyleJobDefinition”. The job is never executed correctly!

    public override void Execute(System.Guid targetInstanceId)
    {
    try
    {
    Process currentProcess = Process.GetCurrentProcess();
    if (System.DateTime.UtcNow.Subtract(currentProcess.StartTime).Minutes < 60)
    {
    ULS.SendTraceTag(7436320u, ULSCat.msoulscatWSSTimer, ULSTraceLevel.Medium, "Skipping timer recycle since the process has been running less than 1 hour.");
    return;
    }
    }….

    TimeSpan.Minutes is the Minutes part and can not be greater then 59 (TotalMinutes is correct)! This Job is never executed!!!!
    The next Bug is Utc. The Process.StartTime is local time (Kind=local)

    Please remove the term review so that you…

  15. Configurable cache options for Office Online Server / Office Web Apps Server on-premises

    Currently there are no options in on-premises Office Online Server or Office Web Apps Server farm to configure cache expiration interval, or even flush the cache manually if ever needed.

    Although there seems to be a DiskCacheForcedDeletionAgeDays property value inside the product, it is not exposed to be configured.

    We've also experienced a few times the need for a cache flush. There is no API / PowerShell commands for doing so, we've got around it by deleting cache folders, but is kinda rude action to do. A command for safely disk and/or memory cache flush would also be welcome.

  16. The default setting of the storage quota of Office 365 Group site should be changeable

    The default setting of the storage quota of Office 365 Group site should be changeable like OneDrive for Business.
    Right now, it must be 1 TB by default and we have to change everytime after creating groups.

  20. 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!
