  1. Customize role to approve API permission in SPO admin center

    Currently only Global administrators have a permission to approve permission request in the SharePoint API management page, and we cannot customize other user role to allow approval.
    It would be great that we could customize user role and assign it to SharePoint administrators to approve permission requests in API management permission.

  2. Fix SharePoint Retention for SharePoint Online

    Can we make the retention policy more flexible to include the intentional deletion of content for a clean state of the SP sites?

  5. mail-enabled security groups (MESG) added to a sharepoint group should apply permissions to the

    mail-enabled security groups (MESG) added to a sharepoint group should apply permissions to the members of the group. I have been on the phone with sharepoint support for an hour. at the end of the call the agent stated he was extremely perplexed why the MESG seemed to intermittently apply permissions to some users but not others.

  6. Insert customer's built Office templates online

    Currently the customer’s private built office templates (for example word templates for a new document) are stored locally.
    Using this way, it is not able to open and use internal templates via mobile devices.
    The goal is now to store those templates not locally but on Sharepoint Online, so every user will definitely use the internally branded Office templates to avoid internal compliance issues.

  7. Allow to adjust the update timing for group name changes in SPO admin center

    When you changed a group name of Office 365 group, SPO admin center would take hours to display the updated group name, while Exchange admin center and SPO site could show the updated name within a few minutes.
    I would like you to implement a feature to adjust the update timing for the group name changes.

  8. Search Preferences

    Give us the ability to configure whether search results in SharePoint open in the browser or the client application for all users. Currently, each user must change this setting for their account. It would be helpful to have the ability to change this setting as the administrator for everyone.

  9. Allow more security exceptions to the Sharepoint IP restrictions to certain important users, specially for the admin

    It's useful to restrict the IP for Sharepoint connections (i.e. Work offices); but it could also be useful to add exceptions to the rule for certain users who you would like to prefer them not to find any restriction at all, for example, if the CEO of the company wants to work in his house, or in the train, and you don't want them to find any sort of problems. Plus, the admin should always have the possibility to be in this list (I.E. there's some fire that needs to be shutdown).

  10. Service / Feature Outage log / report history available to all end users requested

    Requesting Microsoft Support improve Enterprise end user experience by providing a public ticket feed for known / reported service related issues. This would minimize duplication of reporting to Microsoft about known issues and save the end user time researching the problems and/or reporting the issue. T

    This would also improve your customer's experience by reducing the number of in-house organization tickets and inquiries when a service related feature is down or not working as intended.

    This feature would allow end users to link or subscribe to a public platform service report history log so they're able to review current events…

  12. Group Search Increases Fuzzy Query

    In office 365 mailbox, group search can only be carried out by group name, but not by vague query. For example, if we want to find the mailbox of enterprise it group, input it can not be found, only input enterprise or enterprise IT can be found. This design is too inhumane. If we don't know the name of the mailbox group, it will take more time to find the mailbox of the group.

  13. Separate OneDrive and Sharepoint permissions

    Since OneDrive and Sharepoint share permissions, if we want to let one user share with one external user we have to open up our entire company intranet to all external users. We would like to handle sharepoint and onedrive permissions separately so we are able to manage security in different ways for both.

  18. Do Away With "Classic" Feature Categorization

    What does "Classic" mean?

    The term "Classic" to me means, "this is old, not part of the modern SharePoint experience / functionality, and eventually it's going away". The reason for calling features Classic is not clear to me--I just feel uneasy about leveraging them. If they have a future, why should they be set apart from other configurations as "Classic". If they are part of the normal and ongoing infrastructure, just call them "Features" or "Services", or simply group them with every other normal feature. If they are non-strategic or they are going away, classify them as "To Be Retired"…

  19. Modern site can not restrict sharing or files downloading per site

    We would like to have the ability to restrict sharing or files downloading on a per site basis in the Modern site temple.

    Currently if you create the site from a Classic template in the Classic Admin center, then you can restrict files to View Only and limit sharing.

    However, if you create a site with the modern template then you can not effectively disable sharing or downloading using the same View Only settings.

    This almost seems like a bug, or the Modern site is limited.

    1) A file in one drive of a person (A) is shared with another person (B), person B can only view the file (is prevented of sharing/printing/mailing/copying). This can be useful for company owned documents, they can at each moment be consulted by everyone.
    2) A file in one drive of a person (A) is shared with another person (B), person B can work in the file (just like A) but is prevented of sharing/printing/mailing/copying. This can be useful when e.g. people on the field need to update documents for the management at the office, preventing that this information can…
