  2. How to track Manage SharePoint Service ?

    Hello,

    Now a days we are unable to figure out who has stopped which SharePoint service in the central admin during troubleshooting of issues in the farm. It is always difficult to find in ULS logs too.

    So can we develop something(timer job/event receiver) which will store these below information in a list in Central Admin site ?
    Service Name
    Action : Stop/Start
    Action time
    Action By
    Kindly share your ideas ?

    Regards,
    -Samarendra Swain

  4. Allow adding a comment when deleting a file or folder in Document Libraries

    This will allow us to track the reason why some files are deleted. Also prevents accidental deletion. Auditing of the recycle bin can be improved.

  5. I would suggest that total number of items can be displayed in storage metrics for the site next to total size and % site quota.

    I would suggest that total number of folder items can be displayed in Sharepoint storage metrics for the site next to total size and % site quota.

    It would be useful for administrator and management reference

  8. add machine name to audit results

    When checking which files were deleted by which user from a site collection in SharePoint Online, the machine name of the originating computer / server is not shown. All we get is a public IP address, a OS build nr and the client software used. The local user's machine name would be much more helpful.

    For example in my case the OS build nr of Windows 2019 Server and Windows 10 are the same, OneDrive clients are the same version on Server and laptop, and we all have our datacenter as internet breakout.

  9. Please improve the Office 365 audit logs to have more than 50,000 logs in a single output

    Please improve the Office 365 audit logs to have more than 50,000 logs in a single output


    ■Description(内容):
    現在、Office 365 監査ログにて一度に出力可能なログは 50,000 件です。
    1 日で 5,000 件のログが出力されるため、過去 3 か月分のログを確認する場合、確認に工数がかかります。
    そのため、Office 365 監査ログにて一度に出力可能なログを 50,000 件以上にする機能の拡充を希望します。​
    Currently Office 365 audit logs can have up to 50,000 logs in a single output.
    As we output 5,000 logs in a single day, lots of worktime is needed for checking in the situation where we need to check logs for the past 3 months.
    Thus we hope that the Office 365 audit logs can be improved…

  10. Audit log

    Post deprecation of Site Collection Audit logs in SharePoint Online, it is difficult to get activity logs for activities performed on SharePoint library content through O365 Security & Compliance Center.

    Currently, if we need library content level activity report then we need to provide URL path of each root level folder within the document library. Just giving the library path, only provides library page level activity.

    This option is not of great help when we have 20 or 30+ folders at root level.

    With SharePoint Audit logs reports we could generate the activity report for the entire library without mentioning…

  11. • The site collection/site page that has been most visited. • The document that has been most viewed or downloaded.

    It would be better to have a Tab to see most visited page on the share point site for whole tenenat

    As a motivational way to put our heads in the air and our family out side. We need to get back to basics. My credit is being used because our technology is so advance people that sit on there deceivingly smart ass's put hardworking, honest people to in the poor house and mess up our future and our kids future.

  14. Function disappears "Classic Popularity Reports"

    I have just noticed with amazement that the "Classic Popularity Reports" function will disappear at the beginning of next year.
    This report is far from complete and relevant, but it compensates for the lack of reporting on lists and libraries.
    The information provided by the "Popularity trends" page is incomplete and not adapted to a professional intranet (but rather for web light), exporting to Excel is not even possible!
    Site managers need visibility on their site activity such as "which file is read and by whom?", a function that can be exported to Excel, this is sufficient for 90% of…

  15. Provide an OOTB utility that can report HTTP 404 Not Found error.

    Provide a designated OOTB utility that scans all the links in a site collection and can generate a report of links that are not active or not working.

  17. Audit logs in Microsoft Stream to obtain details of actions performed by video viewers

    Current audit logs in Microsoft Stream can obtain date and time when a video played, however I would like to know more details of actions performed for the video by viewers – how long the video has been played, or to which point the video has been viewed.

  20. Create a separate view of sites that have been deleted but covered by a retention policy

    Currently sites that have been deleted but bound by a retention rule are visible in my Active site view. This unnecessarily clutters the Active view and makes using that view very cumbersome. By default the tenant admin no longer has access to these sites meaning I can't do anything with them. Please move these sites to a separate view to unclutter my Active sites.
