  2. SharePoint and SharePoint Online Change Log

    I'd like to see a change log to SharePoint On-Premises and SharePoint Online and of course the rest of the services/servers.

    What I have in mind is a chronological, grouped by CU/PU/SP for on-premises versions and by date for the services, change log with all the changes to API's, PowerShell cmdlets and features. Very much like the Office Roadmap.

    For instance in the July SharePoint CU we have a new addition to the cmdlets that allows us to bypass the search protocol handlers. In August we had a security update that change the EnableScript for Ribbon buttons added by apps…

  3. Make Set-SPOTenant -UserVoiceForFeedbackEnabled:$false have effect on all modern pages

    Please fix it so that Set-SPOTenant -UserVoiceForFeedbackEnabled:$false will have influence on ALL modern SharePoint Online pages.

    Right now when applying this, it only removes the feedback from the modern Site Pages. Not from any other modern page like the list views or the site contents. This makes its behavior inconsistent and confusing.

  5. Hope to implement a function that can notify me before exceeding the tenant capacity

    *English follows Japanese

    テナントの容量が超える前に検知できる通知機能を実現する希望。

    テナントの容量をより容易に管理するため、サイト コレクション単位だけではなく、テナント単位で容量に対する通知設定を行いたい。

    Hope to implement a function that can notify me before exceeding the tenant capacity
    In order to manage the tenant capacity more easily, I want to set the notification for capacity by each tenant instead of by each site collection.

  6. hub

    Add Hub Sites in SharePoint Admin UI, instead of just Powershell. It could even be a checkbox to designate a site as a Hub site

  7. Add the categories feature.

    On the page after you clicked “Storage Metrics – Lists”, there are names of lists displayed in line.
    I hope that it can also display the categories of lists just as the same as it displayed in “Site Content”

  8. To change notification email format

    It would be really helpful if the notification email format can be changed from HTML to text.

  9. Enable Permissive Browser File Handling

    I think it would be useful if one could enable "Permissive Browser File Handling" per SubSite instead of doing it for entire Site Collections.

    Or if one could refine the granularity even further: "Per Folder" would be even better! - so one could run little HTML projects from within a Document Library, without compromising the security of any other collection, site or folder.

  10. Administrative management of Sharepoint alerts after creation

    Currently once a list alert is created administratively for either a group of people or an individual it is only possible to delete the alert and create a new one. The target situation would be the possibility to view and edit the specific alert settings for alerts already created administratively for AD groups or individuals.

  11. Permissions for moving and copying

    I Am not sure if this is the right platform to report bugs, but I could not find any other.

    I noticed, that even if there is no right given to a user for moving and copying, it is still allowed by drag & drop. This can cause a huge mess among libraries, if someone accidentally drags and drops folders or files and thus they are easily relocated to a wrong library in sharepoint.

    Is there any setting for drag & drop? If not I think it should be contained within the edit permissions for users/groups.

    Thank you :)

  12. Admin center display is updated frequently

    The display of the Admin center such as SharePoint changes frequently, but it is very inconvenient.
    If you change the menu name or display position of the settings you have learned a lot, you will not understand and you will not be able to check and operate smoothly every time, which will hinder your work.


    タイトル (日本語) 管理センターの表示を頻繁に更新することをやめてほしい
    内容 (日本語) :
    SharePoint などの管理センターの表示が頻繁に変わってしまうが非常に不便である。
    せっかく覚えた設定のメニュー名や表示位置などが変わってしまうと、分からなくなり毎回調べたりスムーズに操作ができないので仕事に支障が出る。

  13. It is difficult to understand the meaning of "Limited Access" displayed when checking the access permission level.

    It is difficult to understand that "Limited Access" is displayed in the result of "Check Permissions".
    We Confuse because the name of the user who has not been granted permission level for the file or folder to be checked is displayed as "Limited Access"
    I would like you to display only the permissions of the file or folder you are checking, or to display it in easy-to-understand Japanese.


    タイトル (日本語) :アクセス許可レベルの確認で表示される "制限付きアクセス" の表記が分かりづらい
    内容 (日本語):
    ドキュメント ライブラリ内のアイテムで一部固有の権限を設定している際に、ライブラリやアイテムの権限の確認を行うと、確認対象のアイテムにアクセス許可を直接付与していないユーザーの名前で "制限付きアクセス" と表示される動作が分かりづらい。
    権確認対象の権限のみを表示することや、日本語として分かりやすい文言で表示するよう改善してほしい。

  14. Inactive sites

    The list of active sites is nice, but does not include All site. Please add the option to view ALL sites, not just a list of random 'active' sites.

  17. Changes and bloat

    Why can't you stop changing arround on everything all the time, and stop bloating the solution Down With all those Things only a few needs. It's impossible for small businesses to keep up With all the graphical changes, feature changes, and once in a while changing back again!!! You should seiously consider a corporate Version (lot of features and lot of changes all the time) and a small business Version (fewer features and With a slower change rate).
