  1. Automatically tag new folders and items in Document Library with retention label if a retention policy is applied.

    Currently, folders are not automatically tagged with a retention label if a policy is applied. The policy is successfully applied once items are added to the folder, however the folder and items do not display whether or not a retention label is applied unless an admin manually applies a retention label to a folder or item. This seems to be by design, perhaps to address making retention labels "invisible", but creates unnecessary confusion for the admin. If an option could be added to tag folder when policy is applied to the policy itself in Compliance Admin Center > Policies >…

  3. Way to see how many accesses have been made to files

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    ファイルのアクセス数の確認方法について
    Way to see how many accesses have been made to files


    ■Description(内容):
    ファイルのアクセス数の確認方法について、現在 ""人気の傾向"" 機能はサービス終了しているため、監査ログからアクセス数を確認する方法となるが、プランにより 90 日や 1 年より以前のアクセスが確認できないため、ファイルへの総アクセス数の確認ができない。
    ファイルへの総アクセス数が確認できる方法の実装を希望します。

    Currently since the “Popularity trend” function has been discontinued, in order to check how many accesses have been made to files, you can use the audit logs but depending on your plan you can only check the last 90 day or 1-year period, and not the total number of accesses that have been made to any given file. Please add a way to check the total number of accesses made to files.

  5. Want to permist users to use 'Copy to' functionality only

    Hi All,

    Trying to create the permission level in online SharePoint where user should not be able to download but able to use 'Copy to' functionality.

    Any one has solution for it ?

    Best Regards,
    Kaustubh

  6. Register page comment activities in audit log

    We would like comments activities to be saved in audit log.

    We faced an issue on our intranet.
    We had a news on salary increase on which some employees made some comments. For some reasons some hard comments disappeared and we don't know why. Users had feeling about a censure which was not the case.
    We tried to retrieve the comments activity to see who has deleted these comments but it's not registered in Audit log. Today we don't know what happened.
    Comments on hot news on an intranet can be very sensitive information.
    Please, add this in possibility in…

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

  12. 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. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. AIP and Sensitivity Labels

    AIP and Sensitivity Labels causes documents to be non-searchable. This causes documents to 'vanish' especially when the owner becomes unavailable and is the only person who knows where the document resides.
