  2. "shared with us"

    Please make "shared with us" optional and not a mandatory link in left-hand navigation -- we don't use it, and it confuses our users.

  3. 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.

  4. Provide option to disable "Upload Folder" Function on new SharePoint Experience.

    On the new SharePoint Experience, although the function "Create New Folder" was disabled. A user can bypass the function by "Upload Folder". So after disable "Create New Folder", one should have the option to disable the "Upload Folder" function.

  6. Displaying the failure of SharePoint online

  7. BCS on office 365 doesn't perform very well, and needs to be improved

    We have found on a project where we have used BCS to connect to on-premises databases through OData web services.

    After a support call these are the Microsoft support team conclusions:

    SharePoint On-Premises environments are dedicated environments where as SharePoint Online is a shared environment, hence it would be slow as compared to SharePoint On-Premise.
    Since the SharePoint Online List has to fetch data from the External Database, it would take some time for it to fetch the data & save the changes to the External Database.

    This uservoice idea is asking Microsoft to review the BCS functionality and improving…

  9. 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…

    モダンUI環境からカスタム リストのアイテムをクリックし開いた画面から複数行テキスト内の内容をコピーしたい
    クラシックUIだとカスタム リストのアイテムをクリックし遷移された画面から複数行テキストの中に記載されている内容を編集モードにしなくてもコピーできるが、
    モダンUIからだと編集モードにしないと、複数行テキストの内容がコピーできない。

    モダンUIからでも、カスタムリストから一つアイテムをクリックし遷移した画面から編集モードにせず、複数行テキストの内容をコピーできるようにしたい。

    In Modern UI, make multiple text contents can be coped in the redirected page by clicking items in custom list.
    In Classic UI, after clicking items in the custom list and going to the redirected page, you can copy the contents in the multiple text even it’s not in the edit mode.
    In Modern UI, if it’s not in the edit mode, multiple text cannot be coped.
    Please improve the feature and make multiple text contents can be coped in the redirected page without changing to the edit mode.

  20. Allow a group to be linked to an individual sub site

    Allow a group to be linked to an individual sub site

    弊社の運用では、Teams からチームを作成しSharePoint を使っています。

    この場合、各チームに部署を紐づける操作が手間なので、
    一つのポータルを用意し、そこからサブサイト作成>サブサイトに対しグループを紐づけるといった操作が可能となれば、かなり利便性の向上につながると想定されます。

    In our operation, we create teams from Teams and use SharePoint.

    In this case, linking a department to each team takes some work, so please make it possible to use one portal, and from there create a subsite and link a group to that subsite. Doing so would increase the convenience of the system.
