  1. Keep username attached to an approved page when using publishing site with workflow

    When a site is created using "Publish Site with Workflow", after a page is approved the modified by field says "system account" instead of the actual user who approved the page. This has been an issue in our 2010 farm as well. Would love to see this represented as the actual last modified username.

  2. External audit and access shared documentation

    I think it is necessary to create a report with documentation that has been shared with external users. Currently from the support department I indicate that Office 365 does not include this type of audit

  3. Identify Export events in logs as exports rather than searches in the logs

    Have Export events identified in the log as "Export" rather than current event type of "Search".

    Based on running the report and then going back to the eDiscovery site and looking through the exports I have determined that I think entries in log as search events are exports that is not apparent. It would be much easier if we could filter on Item Type = Site Collection AND Event = Export

  4. Central administration rights for web UI

    I have setup where external suplier developing sharepoint apps. They should have only Read Interface to CA, which is possible to grant only for POSH. The Web UI is a step above.

  5. DLP Exception Reporting

    Provide reporting to identify where users have chosen to allow an exception to DLP policies.

    Even better would be to also define an approval workflow (or just a notification at minimum) to trigger immediately when an override is initiated.

  6. Security and Compliance site permission change alerts

    It would be great to be able to target specific site collections for permission change event alerting in the Security and Compliance Center.

    Currently right now you have to target the entire SharePoint Online tenant if you want to configure alerts around Site Collection Admin added and SharePoint site permissions change events which might not be required outside of sites that contain confidential data.
