  1. Let user decide on default language when creating Office 365 tenancy

    When new tenancy is created, all default site collections are created with the language that corresponds to the country where the company is placed. This is inconvenient and needs to be re-done in cross-country companies. I suggest to let admin decide on language for the default site collections.

  2. AlwaysOn Read-Intent Support

    SharePoint 2013 SP1 + Apr 2014 CU support Read-Only instances with AlwaysOn Availability Groups, but SharePoint does not implement Read-Intent, allowing the read routing functionality native to AGs. Read-Intent would allow administrators to make use of the secondary node in the AG for read-only queries, thereby potentially increasing performance of the farm.

    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.…

  6. Automatically delete the minor version history by information management policy

    Automatically delete the minor version history by information management policy

    現在ドキュメント ライブラリのバージョン設定にて、マイナーバージョンの削除は手動でしか実行できないが、情報管理ポリシーの設定にて、バージョン管理も選択できるようになることで、作業の工数が減るため、マイナーバージョンを自動で削除する設定および機能の拡充を希望します。

    Currently, in the version settings of document libraries, minor versions can only be deleted manually. It would reduce the amount of work we have to do if it was possible to select version management in the settings of information management policies and have it automatically delete minor versions, so please make this possible.

  8. Extract only the URL for a team using the team name in PowerShell

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    Microsoft Teams のチーム名から、PowerShell にて URL のみを取得したい
    Extract only the URL for a team using the team name in PowerShell


    ■Description(内容):
    "Get-UnifiedGroup -Identity "チーム名" | select SharePointSiteUrl" を実行すると、URL だけではなく、"SharePointSiteUrl" という項目も取得ができる。取得した値を変数に代入するため、"SharePointSiteUrl" という項目は取得せず、URL のみを取得できるようにしたい

    If you run "Get-UnifiedGroup -Identity "Team name" | select SharePointSiteUrl", not only is the URL extracted, but so is the “SharePointSiteUrl” item. We wish to assign the value we obtain from this command to a variable, and therefore would like to be able to pull only the URL, without also getting the “SharePointSiteUrl” item.

    Currently there is functionality that sends notifications for changes to top level sites’ storage quotas, and for reaching a certain usage percentage of the whole site’s storage.
    There is no option to do the same for subsites, so I would like to see such functionality added.

  12. Remove Office 365 Group from Site

    In the same way as existing sites can be "upgraded" to "Connect to new Office 365 Group", it would be great if one could go the other way around as well.

    We have some sites that were initially created with Office 365 Group. But over time, we see that the functionality for this is not being used at all.

    So it would be great if we could get functionality for "cleaning up" or removing the Office 365 Group for a site, or convert it to a standard Team Site (with no Office 365 Group).

  13. Allowing non-owners to invite new users set to disallowed: do not allow EXISTING users with read or contribute to Share

    We've recently discovered that the setting in SharePoint Admin that sets "Allowing non-owners to invite new users" to "disallowed" for a site collection means only users that have never had access to the SharePoint Site. We thought it meant new users to the site\library. Existing users with read and contribute rights (non-owners) can still share anything they want and break inheritance on the libraries.

    Please give us a way to stop sharing entirely for ALL users or at least for users that are not site owners.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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…

  20. 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,
