  2. 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.

  3. 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).

  7. A SharePoint bug for editing the page content area

    In all sites and sub sites, when clicking edit the page, it doesn’t let me to edit the content area and the below is added to the URL of the page:

    ?PageView=Shared&InitialTabId=Ribbon.WebPartPage&VisibilityContext=WSSWebPartPage

    Also, Hide/Show ribbon is also disappeared from the Settings menu. (in the Site navigation settings “Show ribbon” is selected)

    When I click on Save and keep editing, then I am able to edit the content area and the below is added to the URL of the page:

    ?ControlMode=Edit&DisplayMode=Design

    This is a SharePoint product issue, which needs to be fixed by Microsoft.

  9. Display of group names

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    グループの名称表示について
    Display of group names


    ■Description(内容):
    グループの名前などの属性を変更した場合は、SharePoint のサイト コレクション上には反映されない動作となるため、変更したグループ名をサイト コレクションに反映させるためには、一度サイト上からグループを削除する必要がございます。
    しかしながら、SharePoint Online のサイト コレクションのユーザ情報リストから該当のグループを削除した場合、アイテム毎に権限を再付与する必要がございます。
    複数のアイテムに対して再付与することは、とても現実的ではないため、一括で権限を戻せるよう機能の拡充を希望します。

    If attributes such as group name etc. are changed, the changes do not reflect in the SharePoint site collection, and so in order to make the changes show up, it is necessary to remove and re-add the group on the site.
    However, if the group in question is removed from the SharePoint Online site collection user information list, you need to re-apply permissions to all the items.
    It isn’t realistic to re-apply permissions to multiple items, so please add a way…

  10. 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.

    グローバル ナビゲーションの見出しが縦に表示される事象の改善について
    Please change the situation where the heading in global navigation is displayed vertically

    グローバル ナビゲーションに階層化して見出しやリンクを設定した場合、文字数によっては横に表示されず、縦に 1 文字ずつ表示されるため改善してほしい。

    またはユーザーが、グローバル ナビゲーションに設定する見出しの改行位置を調整できる機能を提供してほしい。
    If headings and links are set in a hierarchy in global navigation, depending on the number of characters they will not be displayed horizontally, but will be displayed vertically one character at a time, so we hope that this can be changed.

    In addition we also hope that a feature will be provided that allows users to adjust the line break position of headings set in global navigation.

  14. 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…

  17. add mobile phone and office address details to sync from office365 / Onsite AD

    We have encountered a lot of problems creating a staff directory in Sharepoint Online. Delve was not an option due to reliance on Office Graph features which we don't want.
    Please add Mobile Number & Office Address details so they sync to Sharepoint User profile from local Active Directory /Office365.
    Ideally ALL user details in Office 365 should be consistant/available in Sharepoint Online .

  18. improve the notification method of updates.

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):アップデートの通知につきまして

    Regarding the notification of updates.

    ■Description_JP (内容):重要なアップデートについては日本語のユーザーには日本語で通知をするように希望します。英語や機械翻訳では内容の把握が困難です。また、メッセージ センターを普段確認しないユーザーもいる為、管理センターではなく、メールでの通知を希望します。通知をするためのメールアドレスを登録するか、テナント契約時に登録したメールへ届くようにするとアップデート内容の確認が容易となります。

    I hope the notification of critical updates to be confirmed in Japanese since Japanese users have some difficulties in understanding English interpretation or machine translations. Moreover, I hope that I will be able to check a notification by an e-mail instead of checking within an admin center because some users do not look into a Message Center. I would say that I feel it convenient if I could either register an e-mail address for a notification or check the e-mails of updates, which were registered at
