  1. 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.

  2. About the display to the Modern UI when the utilization capacity of the site exceeds Storagequotawarninglevel

    *English follows Japanese

    サイトの使用容量が StorageQuotaWarningLevel を超えた場合のモダン UI への表示について

    サイト コレクションの記憶域使用が警告値を超えた場合、クラシック UI のページへは警告メッセージが表示されますが、モダン UI のページには表示されないため、表示してほしい。

    About the display to the Modern UI when the utilization capacity of the site exceeds Storagequotawarninglevel
    If the storage utilization in site collection exceeds the warning value, an alert message will display on the page of Classic UI, but it does not appear on the page of Modern UI.
    Please improve the feature and let the alert message can also be displayed in Modern UI.

  3. User override for domain based blacklist

    Allow specific users the ability to have an override for a domain based blacklist if the person doing the sharing is a member of a specific AD group. This functionality should be available for both SharePoint and OneDrive for Business Sites.

  4. 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.

  6. Copy/Paste Images into Enhanced Rich Text Columns

    Right now you have to upload an image to SharePoint before you can add it to an Enhanced Rich Text column. I'd love to be able to copy/paste images. For example, I have a Support Ticket list, and users try to copy/paste screen shots to help me troubleshoot. However, when I get the email, the images are stripped.

  7. Threshold for Lists SharePoint Online & Export Calendar to Outlook

    The threshold of the lists (including calendars) is 5000 currently. Once the limit is exceeded, it seems that there's nothing you can do with the list. You can't open / edit / delete any events, can't export the calendar items, can't open with Outlook or Acess, ... Of course that you can't change the threshold either. The threshold should be allowed to change, or there should be a way to export the data. Most businesses will have more than 5000 events in their public calendars. This is very inconvenient for business users.

    Another suggest is to add the export SharePoint…

  8. Give users ability to stop sharing with contribute share permissions

    We use many sharepoint Online sites for document management.

    Users either have Read or Contribute share permissions.

    ON the folders where they have contribute permissions they can share folders, but they cannot stop sharing.
    This is a major issue, why enable users to share when they aren't able to remove them.
    Would be great to enable users with Contribute share permission to remove shares they created,

  10. Enable Office 365 Tenant Sign-Up to provide selectable option for default SPO language

    When creating a new Office 365 Tenant, your SPO default language is determined typically by the language of the marketing page you signed up from - e.g. https://products.office.com/en-gb/business/compare-more-office-365-for-business-plans or https://products.office.com/de-DE/business/compare-more-office-365-for-business-plans?omkt=de-DE the latter being German and former English.

    This may mean that the default language provided for SPO is not what you intended it to be, e.g. English instead of French or German instead of English. Some organizations want to have a default language that suits their business needs.

    There is no easy way to change this to your language of choice once your tenant is created. Also, there is no…

  11. Configurable cache options for Office Online Server / Office Web Apps Server on-premises

    Currently there are no options in on-premises Office Online Server or Office Web Apps Server farm to configure cache expiration interval, or even flush the cache manually if ever needed.

    Although there seems to be a DiskCacheForcedDeletionAgeDays property value inside the product, it is not exposed to be configured.

    We've also experienced a few times the need for a cache flush. There is no API / PowerShell commands for doing so, we've got around it by deleting cache folders, but is kinda rude action to do. A command for safely disk and/or memory cache flush would also be welcome.

  14. export site permissions

    It would be great to be able to export a Site's user permissions. We require a powershell script to export the permissions for all users. I would like to have a an option in the share point admin GUI to export all user and groups permissions for a site for our security team to review.

  16. Block End Users from Browsing Public App store

    Currently there is an option in Central Admin to disable access to the public SharePoint store to get Apps. However when this is enabled, it still allows end users to browse the public store, but it just blocks them from downloading Apps/Add-Ins. It will instead add their requests to the App Requests list in the App Catalog. It would be nice to completely block and disallow access to the public SharePoint store.

  17. Allow concurrent editing of excel workbooks in the client application

    All co-authoring should be consistent. Co-authoring in Excel (the client) would have huge value. The web editor really does not work for power users.

    When creating a site on SharePoint Online, I would like to be able to add a page that does not show a menu or header etc. to viewers.
    In creating a portal site, I want to be able to only show these parts to viewers who are admins or editors, so the current state where the menu and suite bar are shown is not ideal for this implementation. Please make it possible to create pages with the menu, logo etc.…

    It is possible to check how many accesses have been made to a page via both the “Site visitors” item in the site collection “Site usage”, and the “Page views” in the Office 365 security/compliance audit log, but there is a discrepancy between these numbers.
    It is difficult to understand which of these values can…
