    • 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…

      • 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”

        • 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.

          • 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.

            • 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

                • To change notification email format

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

                  • 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.

                    • 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.

                      • 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).

                                • 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 :)

                                      Microsoft should provide the companies of a good security system for the documents and websites and an easy oversight of needs of a director: writing letters, contact via mail and video. The rest, inside information and contacts belongs to the company.

                                      • Consistent labelling and navigation in Sharepoint Admin Center

                                        Better align labelling of objects and features especially where the object is alive and there are stages to configuring and then using it. I.e. don't use one label at the point of setting up the object to then use a completely different label for the same value after it's been created. Consistent labelling of objects and features across views please i.e. App Secret is referred to when creating / connecting an App but after the app is created there's no reference to the App secret via the admin center. It can be retreived via some Powershell but for something that's…

                                        • add an option to a specific file to be set as "Must check-out"

                                          I have a file that I want to be accessed and updated, only if the user checks-out the file. I do not want others to be able to download a copy of this checked out file.
                                          I believe this can be done at Library level, but can't be done at file level.
