    • Outlook 2016 - Attach SharePoint File permissions

      When a user uses the "Attach File" in Outlook 2016 and chooses a file on SharePoint online they are asked to allow recipients edit or view to the file. Can we have SharePoint check the permissions of the recipient rather than the sender? Currently if the sender does not have rights to make security changes to a Site, List or Library the sender gets and email with the following:

      "You don't have permission to give others access to this file.
      The message was sent, but the following people might not be able to access the attachment:"

      Sender will get this…

          • 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.

                • 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。

                    • 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…

                        • 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.

                          • 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…

                                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.

                                      Many times we find out its important to us (IT) and our companies to know when a Site Collection was created and by using what account. the site owner can be changed, so its not useful for auditing

                                      • Displaying the failure of SharePoint online

                                        In case of failure in SharePoint Online, it would be really helpful if there’s a function which to display static page (SharePoint internal page or external page) stating the occurrence of failure prepared for each tenant so that all users can see

                                        • Revert default date format to "Standard" from "Friendly"

                                          When I want to know the time and date that something was Created or Modified I require a bit of standardized precision.
                                          e.g. [5/31/2017 7:33 PM] (actually, I'd prefer the ISO standard of [2017-05-31 19:33] but that's another discussion).
                                          Instead, the "Friendly" format gives you useless approximations like "a few minutes ago", or "29 minutes ago", or "May 5".
                                          This is what people are used to and what I suspect is the majority use case.
                                          Why would we want to impose a non-standard format, "Friendly" or otherwise. The "Friendly" format is the unusual non-standard format and as such deserves to…
