  1. Email Alerts for SharePoint Storage Consumption

    Please allow for email alerting when SharePoint storage available space is low at the tenant level. Currently there is no way to be notified when your tenant's storage is running low so it needs to be manually checked on a regular basis.

  2. You cannot create alerts for lists for which users can only read their own items

    You cannot create alerts for lists for which users can only read their own items.

  3. Show the access request email address on the Access Denied screen and/or a custom message

    When users request access they might not get a response back from the site's owner. This is typically the case in large companies where people come and go often. Also site owners aren't on the hook to respond because they know users aren't aware the email was sent to them. The end result is a flood of tickets to the SP admin to provide access.

    Also what would be nice is a option next to the access request email address button where you can leave a custom message at the site level so it shows on the access denied screen.…

  5. Improve content types and content type hub-functionality

    Content types:

    Enable content type-based default values in addition to site column-based and location-based default values. Allow farm administrators to specify which takes priority in cases of conflict (and make them function reagardless of if the user creates a new document from the ribbon, uploads it or drag-and-drops it into the library)

    Enable all and any sharepoint columns to be displayed, and when applicable edited, from within the document (not just in the ribbon). For example give us the option to automatically propagate your new unique farm-wide document ID-based url in the actual document content. would be fantastic for users…

  7. 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…

  8. 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.

  11. Create a copy-SPOsite

    It would be nice to be able to copy a site to a new site

    We have a range of test sites
    At a time these gets to a point in time where they move from test site to production sites
    But there is no possibility to rename/copy a site

    Only posibility I have found is to create a template including contence - but it has a 50 mb limit

  12. Permission Reporting Structure

    I would like a back-end reporting structure for permissions. It would be really helpful to be able to call up a user and see all of their permissions. I would also like to be able to update/change their permissions from this report as well (e.g., checkboxes).

  13. Use only IPv6 for SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business

    Use only IPv6 for SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business

    IPv6 のみで SharePoint Online および OneDrive for Business を利用できるよう対応を進めてほしい。
    IPv6 に対応しているとのことであれば、IPv6 のみで利用可能な形としてほしい。
    他社ではそれがすでに実現しているため、そのようになることを期待する。
    また、"Office 365 IPv6 テスト計画" というドキュメントに IPv6 専用クライアントについて記載があるにもかかわらず、実際対応していないのは混乱を招く元となる。

    We would like progress to be made towards supporting the exclusive use of IPv6 for SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business.
    We would like to be able to exclusively use IPv6 on anything that supports IPv6.
    This is already possible in other organizations, so we would expect it here too.
    Also, even though there is mention…

  14. Make it so that access permissions that only allows for uploading can be created

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    アイテムのアップロードのみが可能なアクセス権を付与できるように要望します。
    Make it so that access permissions that only allows for uploading can be created


    ■Description(内容):
    [投稿] 権限を付与することでアイテムのアップロードが可能とはなるが、同時にアイテムの編集および削除も可能となるため、[アイテムの編集] および [アイテムの削除] のアクセス権を外し権限を作成すると、アップロードは可能となるがエラー メッセージが表示されるため改善を希望します。
    Uploading of items is made possible by granting "Post" permissions, but at the same time editing and deletion of items becomes possible as well. We can make permissions that exclude the "Modify item" and "Delete item" access permissions, but an error message appears when uploading items. Thus we hope that new permissions can be made like what we are doing but without having any error message appearing.

  17. the error “Someone else has this workbook locked”

    When editing in Excel Online, the error “Someone else has this workbook locked” occurs sometimes.
    It might be locked on the server side, due to internet communication speed, unexpected PC shutdown or browser working stopped.
    When editing in Excel, the error “Upload failed. The server version of this file was updated by another author.” occurs sometimes.
    The file could not be closed properly for unexpected reasons and be locked on the server side.
    I really need you to improve this function that either make files cannot be locked or tell me the way how to unlock the files from the…

  18. 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…

  19. Data leackage prevention for OneDrive for Business Client sync

    Currently you can sync multiple SharePoint libraries from different tenants in OneDrive for Business. To prevent data leakage it would be helpful for my organization to restrict the synchronization to just specific tenants (maybe based on the tenant GUID).

  20. 365 – SharePoint Online, Usage and Activity Reports

    We need information on user with ID activity per site collection with URL, which user has opened, changed, synched, downloaded, published files within which site collection with URL. Currently the tenant admin report shows cumulative data: nr of files opened synched etc. per user, but not clear in which site collections and vice versa nr of files edited within a site collection but without information on the users. Users activity on particular site collection is indeed the most important usage statistic, in order to answer the simple question " who is using what in sharepoint".
