  1. 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

    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.

  3. 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.

  4. Please add "Guest" to reporting options so admins can review usage analytics of SharePoint Sites.

    It would be helpful to have an option to create reports on "guest" usage of SharePoint Sites. Admins can easily see the licensed users, but there aren't really any options for 'guest" users.

    It would also be helpful to have the ability to review these reports for 30+ days as opposed to the current 7 day restrictions.

  5. Export to Excel activity can’t be obtained via audit log

    I would like to have a report of the Export to Excel activity in Audit log. But this activity is not included in the audit log activity options. Please add Export to Excel function as the auditable action.
