  2. Implement a feature to check what permissions were granted to a group

    グループ名を指定して、権限が付与されているサイトやアイテムなどを確認できる機能の提供を希望します。
    Implement a feature to check what permissions were granted to a group


    ■Description(内容):
    フォルダー毎に固有の権限が設定されており複雑な権限設定がされている場合、担当の管理者が退職後に把握することができなくなってしまうことがあるため、グループ名を指定しサイト、リスト、ライブラリ、フォルダー、アイテムなどこに対して権限が付与されているか一覧で確認できる機能を追加してほしい。
    I hope for a feature will be implemented so that after entering a group name, the permissions that were granted to the sites, lists, libraries, folders, items etc in a group can be viewed in a list. This will help in knowing what items have what kind of permissions set when say, all folders have complicated permissions set by an administrator and that administrator leaves the job.

  4. Delve People Search Webpart

    Delve People Search webpart, Delve has a lot more user information and even allows adding skills/interests, by having a little webpart to fast search people by skills, name or department, would make a great integration between the two and promote users to keep their Delve profiles up to date and filled in with as much info as possible.

  5. sharepoint designer restriction

    Currently the SharePoint Designer can only be switched on or off for a site. Then everyone can use the SPD. Rights to use the SPD should be granted on a certain role (which is different from the admin role).

  6. Ability to name versions in version history

    Currently SharePoint online creates versions on it owns as users continue to edit the content and some times is not very helpfull because you have to comb through 20 different versions to get to the version you want to restore.It would be great if you could name a version like you can in google sheets so you know what exact version you can roll back to.

  12. 2010 Workflows Retirement

    Stop Retirement of SharePoint 2010 Workflows. 2013 Workflows do not do permission replacement or email outside of exchange contacts. PowerAutomate does not meet the standards for a replacement and there is clearly not enough time to rebuild all of the workflows.

    そのため、細かな調整を必要とせず簡易的に特定のドメインを持つユーザーのみがサイトへアクセスできるような機能の実装を希望します。

    I want to be able to assign permissions to all of the users in a given domain, of which there are several tens of thousands.
    I’m aware of methods using CSV files with PowerShell cmdlets and security groups, but neither will function for such a large number of users.
    Also, in cases where we want to add or delete users it is necessary to make changes in the GUI or to the CSV file…

  20. Allow access request to flow to users without full control to a site

    I manage SharePoint Online for an organization and we have a problem with people you have edit rights sharing files, pages, etc with other people who shouldn't have edit access. I've looked into implementing the Access Request Setting to disable this and make the shares flow through an approval process.
    However, to approve a request you must have full control to the site. We dont want to grant full control of a site to users because they could mess up the permissions of the site.

    We should be able to specify users as Approvers in the "Access Request Settings" that…
