  1. Way to check how much storage volume is currently in use for a tenant using PowerShell

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    PowerShellでテナントの現在の使用量を確認する方法を希望します
    Way to check how much storage volume is currently in use for a tenant using PowerShell


    ■Description(内容):
    PowerShell にてテナント全体の上限値やサイトコレクション単位の上限値と現在の使用量を確認できるが、テナント全体の現在の使用量は確認できない。
    テナント全体の現在の使用量をPowerShellのコマンドで確認できるように機能の追加を希望します

    While it is possible to use PowerShell to check the upper storage limit for the whole tenant, as well as the storage limit and currently used storage for individual site collections, it is currently not possible to check the currently used storage for the tenant as a whole.
    Please make it possible to check this using a PowerShell command.

  2. Show Teams private channel site collections in SharePoint Online Admin center

    When someone creates a private channel in Teams it sets up a site collection that is not displayed in the SharePoint Admin Center.

    Because it is not displayed in the SharePoint Admin Center it is difficult to determine, how much storage these Teams private channel site collections are using.

    Also because we have a storage quota set by default for site collections, because it does not display in the admin center the quota can only be changed through powershell.

  3. "Last activity (UTC)" of sites should be exported as UTC in CSV

    SharePoint Admins can export a list of all sites as a CSV file from active sites page in the modern SharePoint admin center.
    The value of [Last activity (UTC)] column is exported as date & time of PST/PDT. It should be DATE of UTC.

  5. Create a Read-Only SharePoint Administrator role in Admin Center

    Create a Read-Only SharePoint Administrator role in Admin Center. With this option, a Servicedesk (or other departments/users) can pick up a lot of incident tickets, without changing. In this way they can learn the basics of SharePoint, before they will get the normal SharePoint Admin role, beside that the normal SharePoint Administrators, can use the rest of the time (they don't have to spend of incidents), to be innovative.

  8. Add the option to customize the notifications generated by Sharepoint (noreply@sharepoint.com)

    If a user is deleted, the sharepoint notification center generates an email indicating that another user will be able to continue accessing the site. It also generates a message that indicates that you have to communicate with the administrators to make the change.

    I want to be able to customize this mail.

  10. "Share" and "Copy Link" Default Setting

    The "Share" and "Copy Link" functionality, as designed, in SharePoint Online and OneDrive is so dangerous and detrimental, I am writing an entire advisory warning employees of the exposure these could open and the support nightmare they will generate.

    While it will take me some time to write up all the suggested changes to this here, I wanted to get this one out now.

    "People with existing access" needs to be a "Default Link Type" option in the SharePoint Admin “Sharing” settings and should be the default for all new tenants.

    I think there shouldn’t be any other default option…

  11. User Permission Report

    Now user can share folders/files and it will break permissions when user share folder/file. Currently there is no option for site owner to have single view for user access report at different level. He has to go to ACL of each library/folder/file for checking current permission. It will be good if we can have such kind of consolidated report which will list out all ACLs . Also, when we assign permission at site level, there should be option to propagate permission to all child ACL of folders/files which has got unique permission.

  13. Open HTML files in browser instead of prompting for download SharePoint Online

    In SharePoint on premise server, we could set Browser File Handling to Permissive for users to open html files directly in the browser. But in SharePoint Online, there is no options for this.

  14. Allow Tenant admins to determine default for external sharing on site collections

    Microsoft is changing the default for site collections created via group creation or using the Create Site feature to be to allow external sharing. This will allow every site not provisioned by IT to share it's content with external people. I think it would be better to let the tenant admin set the default for sites created without IT provisioning so that companies have the option to default to allow external sharing and IT provision sites that are limited, or default to no external sharing and have IT provision sites that enable it.

  20. Please Fix IRM related "Errors" in SP2013

    Please fix this unnecessary noise that fills the ULS logs and various event logs.

    Despite the fact that my SharePoint 2013 farm is NOT set to use IRM/AD-RMS at all, and despite the fact that our end users do not use IRM on their office documents, we are seeing an insane quantity of IRM related noise in our ULS logs and in our event logs on our Web Front Ends. I found a registry hack that gets rid of most of that noise but later discovered that it prevents the installation of cumulative updates and service packs.
