  1. Allow change to base url

    Allow organizations to change their base URL in case the company name changes or for whatever reason the base URL becomes inappropriate. (eg contso.sharepoint.com to company.sharpoint.com)

    Being able to do this without having to re-create the tenancy from scratch would be invaluable.

  3. About editing alerts settings which created in SharePoint.

    *English follows Japanese

    SharePoint上作成した通知設定の編集について
    SharePoint 上で通知設定をする際、通信先相手を個人にした場合、通知設定の編集が可能だが、グループにした場合、編集できないため、

    通信先相手をグループにして、後で設定を編集できるようにしたい。

    When editing alerts settings in SharePoint, it can be edited if the communication partner is a person, but it cannot be edited if it is a group.
    Please improve the feature and let it can also be edited when the communication partner is a person.

  5. Please optimize the list width

    In the modern view of the list from SharePoint sites, the width of the first column in the edit link item is not fixed and it is so inconvenience that I need to adjust it every time.
    Please optimize it from the beginning, or provide a setting feature which can adjust and fix the width.

  6. The way to download directly without opening in Office Online

    The attachment that you uploaded to the list is opened in Office Online by default.
    It would be really helpful if there is a function that the attachment can be downloaded directly instead of being opened in Office Online.

  7. when changing channel’s name on Team page

    Even I changed the channel’s name on Teams page, the changing cannot be reflected on Document Library.
    For example, I create a channel named “ABC” on Teams page and the channel folder with the same name “ABC” is created automatically.
    But after I change channel’s name from “ABC” to “123” on Teams page, it cannot reflect to Document Library and it still remain “ABC”, and vise versa.
    It might cause confusion if channel’s name on Teams is not linked up with folder’s name on Document Library.
    It would be really helpful if this function can be improved and make the…

  8. view column headings when scrolling

    In lists, as you scroll down the page, please freeze column headings in view. Or at least give us the option to turn that feature on or off.

  9. The user with read-only permissions can delete the file in Explorer View.

    For some reason, the user with read-only permissions on the file can delete the file in Explorer View.
    Also, when deleting the file, there is no warning message displayed like “Can't delete”
    I hope it can be improved and also display the warning message.

  10. The difference and a way to switch between Modern UI and Classic UI on SharePoint?

    I want to implement the “edit page” feature on the Modern UI for libraries and lists. Also, I want to implement a button on the Classic UI which can temporarily switch to Modern UI.

  11. The Chart of survey result

    I created a survey which multiple choices A, B, C can be selected.
    But the chart of survey result cannot be calculated separately by A, B, C, it only can calculated by AB, AC, BC etc.
    It would be really helpful if the chart of survey result can be calculated separately.

  13. Logo image cannot be displayed after applied a site template with contents

    After I applied a site template with contents, it has still recognized as a former URL in the “Insert Logo” column on the page of settings for “Title, Description, and Logo”.
    Therefore when the users who have no authority to the former site try to access this site, the logo image cannot be displayed.
    It would be really helpful if the URL in the “Insert Logo” column can be recognized as one from the template destination instead of the former one.

    When SharePoint cannot talk to configuration database, provide a customized error message rather than the default Runtime Error.

  18. About External users login (English follows Japanese)

    外部ユーザのログインについて
    管理センター画面にて、[外部ユーザーは、招待状の送信先と同じアカウントでの共有への招待を受け取る必要があります] との設定項目を有効化または無効化操作はできますが、テナント単位ではなく、サイト コレクション単位でこの設定項目を設定可能にしてほしい

    About External users login
    On the Administration Center page, It is able to enable or disable the settings “External users must receive an invitation to share with the same account as the invitation destination”.
    But I cannot configure this settings on per-site collection basis, only per tenant.
    It is really helpful if the settings can be configured on per-site collection basis.

  19. Please make the menu fixed

    It would be really helpful if the width of the menu can be fixed even after you changed the Windows size in SharePoint site.
    At the present time, if you narrow the window, the menu item will be hidden in [...].
    Please fix the width of the menu in the SharePoint site, slide to the side with the scrollbar, and make the menu option can be selected.
