  3. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. Prevent or at least mention creation of Conditional Access policies when modifying unmanaged device settings

    If you modify the Unmanaged devices setting under Access Control in the SharePoint Admin center from "Allow full access from desktop apps, mobile apps, and the web" to "Allow limited, web-only access" and safe this setting, two Conditional Access policies are created targeted to "All Users" and which are enabled. There is no notification that this is happening and can cause some serious issues in a production environment, if the admin making the change is unaware of this "feature". This is even the case when using PowerShell to make the setting.

    Please fix this by:
    a) at least notify the…

    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…

  12. Opening files in the client app when opening them from a hyperlink

    ハイパーリンクからファイルにアクセスした際に Office クライアント アプリで開ける機能の実装を希望します。

    Opening files in the client app when opening them from a hyperlink


    ■Description(内容):

    ファイル内のハイパーリンクに対して、Office クライアント アプリで起動できるよう機能の拡充を希望します。

    SharePoint サイトに挿入したハイパーリンクも含め、ハイパーリンクの指定先を Office ファイルに指定した際、ファイルパスによって動作が異なることを確認しております。

    ハイパーリンクの指定先が..

    ・ファイル パス (例:sites/<サイト名>/<アプリ名>/<ファイル名>.xlsx) →ダウンロードされる動作

    ・ファイル パス+ "?web=1" (例:sites/<サイト名>/<アプリ名>/<ファイル名>.xlsx?web=1) →ブラウザーで開かれる

    ハイパーリンクの指定先をファイル パスとすれば、ファイルのダウンロード後、Office クライアント アプリから開くことは可能ですが、ハイパーリンクに対しワンクリックで Office クライアント アプリが起動されることでより効率的になると考えます。

    I would like to be able to have files opened from hyperlinks within other files be opened in the corresponding Office client app.

    When the target of a hyperlink, including links inserted into SharePoint sites, is an Office file, the opening behavior varies depending on the file path.

    If the hyperlink target is:

    A file…

  15. Update get-credential to support Modern Authentication including MFA

    Update get-credential to support Multifactor authentication.

    I have 500 SharePoint Online CSOM scripts, and they authenticate with

    $SPOcredentials = Get-Credential #-username $username -Message "Please enter the password for $Username to use SPO Cmdlets"
    $CSOMCredentials = New-Object Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.SharePointOnlineCredentials($SPOcredentials.Username, $SPOcredentials.Password)
    $Ctx = New-Object Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.ClientContext($WebURL)
    $Ctx.Credentials = $CSOMCredentials

    However, this is not supported when the account requires MFA.

    There is a way to establish a context with the PnP AuthenticationManager;

    Connect-PnPOnline -returnconnection -useweblogin -url $weburl
    $authManager = new-object OfficeDevPnP.Core.AuthenticationManager
    $WebCtx = $authManager.GetWebLoginClientContext($WebURL)

    but it results in a Ctx with no Credentials parameter, and this causes most of the interesting parts of my scripts…

    It is currently possible to hide the “Sync” button on SharePoint Document Libraries, however this must be done for each library in turn, so I would like to be able to do it for all of them at once. Please add the ability to do this via PowerShell.

    現在、サイトの記憶域にて設定した警告レベルに達した場合や、記憶域の容量が上限値に達した場合は、サイト コレクションの管理者宛に通知メールが送信される動作であるが、Teams からチームを作成した場合や Office 365 グループを作成した際に紐づく SharePoint Online サイトにて、新たにサイト コレクションの管理者としてユーザーを設定する必要があるため、デフォルトで チームの所有者 (または所有者 グループのメンバー) に通知メールが送信されるように機能改善を要望します。

    As we know when site storage reaches the set warning level or capacity limit, a warning email will be sent to the site collection admin. However, if a user created a team via Teams, the user has to be set as the site collection’s admin at the SharePoint Online site which is linked when Office 365 group was created.

    For smoother operation, send warning…

  18. 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.

  19. Provide an option to block SharePoint 2013 Workflows

    While we can block SharePoint 2010 workflows from either allowing new workflows or existing workflows from running via PoSh on a Web Application, we need this same functionality for SharePoint 2013 workflows.

    Specifically, we need options to:

    1) Prevent all 2013 workflows from running
    2) Prevent the creation of new 2013 workflows
    3) Prevent the modification of existing 2013 workflows

    Similar to 2010, these should be Web Application scoped options.

  20. Teams and SharePoint sites created under the correct URL presidence.

    At present, when a Team or SharePoint site is created it is using the same URL alignment which does not make sense. For example: (user tenant/sites/site name) is what is occurring within our farm. We have access to use "sites" or "team" but when a Team site is created, the URL defaults to (user tenant/sites/site name) instead of being created with (user tenant/teams/site name) Because both Team and SharePoint are using the same URL setup, it is making support a headache because SharePoint Admins do not have access to Team sites. If teams was used in the URL for Team…
