  7. Folder level restore/ versioning in SP

    Would like to see folder level restore functionality in SP online. Currently a large gap between file level restore and using the MS site collection restore.
    Seems a real drop off compared to the on prem SBS servers MS are encouraging us to replace with SP, and one of my big worries WRT cryptolocker infecting a whole site

  9. Enable CMIS in Sharepoint Online

    Since OneDrive for Business on the Macintosh does not sync Sharepoint Libraries or Team Sites, I was excited to find an open source sync client called CmisSync. I installed it on my Mac, only to find it will sync with Sharepoint on premise, but not Sharepoint online. Apparently Microsoft failed to enable CMIS in Sharepoint Online. This is a request to review and reconsider this feature. Alternatively, please fix the new OneDrive (DF) client so that I can sync said libraries.

  11. User wants to add a feature that could display file numbers right after Folders on Document Library

    In order to manage Document Library (how many files are in a Folder) easily, apart from the way to display "Item Child Count" Column on Document Library View, user wants to add a feature that could display the count of file numbers right after each Folder.

    SharePointのドキュメントライブラリで、フォルダ内のファイル数表示させたいが、既存の「子アイテムの数」列をビューに表示させる方法以外に、フォルダーの右側に括弧などを付けて、ファイルの数を表示させたいです。

  12. Use your own domain as sharepoint site

    Hey All,

    what I want and I think that a lot off you also want this is:

    When I go to let me say my tenant is choco then I must go to https://choco.sharepoint.com/sites/.... to get to my sites.
    It is easier to implement that when we go to let me say https://sh.choco.online/....

    where the ... is every different site late personal folder and stuff like that

    and when you make a teamsite you can then choose to take the following subdomein: ts.choco.online. the only thing that is needed is offcourse that the domain choco.online is the domain…

  13. Enable auditing of the Term Store

    Currently it is not possible to audit changes to the Term Store. Given that changes made in the term store can significantly impact thousands of documents, adding, editing, merging, deleting of terms should be audited so we have the capability to track who is making changes.

  14. the messy code occur when download the Japanese name folder

    On Modern UI, a function of download folder has been added to document library, but when you download a folder with a Japanese name from IE, the folder’s name change to messy code sometimes.
    It does not happen to the other browsers.
    I hope that the messy code issue cannot occur even when I download the folder with a Japanese name from IE.

  15. Allow CSP admin (delegated administrator) to manage SharePoint site collections

    Being MIcrosoft's Cloud Solution Provider (CSP), I have to manage users, groups and permissions of Site Collections in my customer’s tenant using PowerShell/CSOM as CSP administrator (delegated administrator).

    The requirement is, I cannot use credentials of global admin and Site Collection admin to perform above mentioned tasks. The only credentials I have are of CSP Admin (delegated admin).

    Although, there is an option to add support partner "Add Support Partner" (Foreign principal for "Company" in Role "TenantAdmins" (Global Microsoft Support Tenant Contract)) in SharePoitn Online admin portal . But there is no API or PowerShell commands to add support partner…

  17. Audit Sharepoint Online Administration (Office 365)

    Reports for Sharepoint administration is not available through the Portal. For example, an administrator changed the sharing options outside the organization.
    Tried to locate which user global administridor held this change and not found.

  18. Improve Analytics support for SharePoint Online & O365 sites

    We can't fetch the page views, pages viewed by the users and other analytical data for the SharePoint Online & O365 sites, as the Usage & Health Analyzer service is not configured. It would be of great help if the analytics for the SharePoint Online & O365 works in the same manner of On-Premise sites (or) similar to SharePoint 2010.

  19. SharePoint Online Backup Retention Period increase

    Increase backup retention period in Sharepoint Online from 14 days to a much longer period, ideally up to a year. Allow admins to request restore of single files or entire sites up to a year back.

  20. Automatically synchronise Picture and other User Properties to Sharepoint Online

    Currently the User Profile synchronisation from Online AD is very limited and does not include the ability to map additional properties. At the very least I would like to see photos automatically synchronised.
