  2. Undo Permission Change

    It would be great to have an undo permission settings in SP. Currently users can quickly rectify the mistakes of accidental deletion of content. However there is nothing that helps to rectify any changes made to the permission model i.e. accidentally re inherit permissions from parent, severing all unique changes made.

  3. Enable SharePoint Online Usage Logging

    Please enable SharePoint Online usage logging on tenants or allow each tenant to disable or enable as needed.

    We are unable to determine when SharePoint Online sites have last had user activity on it. This will help as part of our overall governance process and perform some necessary cleanup of unused SharePoint Online sites. Microsoft resource confirmed this solution is disabled across all tenants. A powershell command - Get-SPOSite -limit all -Detailed | select * provides inaccurate information as a backend process can run and impact the last modified date.

  4. Enable calendar overlays across site collections when using HNSC

    We've just converted the site collections at a client site from path-based site collections to host-named site collection and discovered that calendar with overlays of calendars from other site collections do not work once we've made the switch to HNSC.

    Please enable the ability to use calendar overlays using calendars stored in other host-named site collections. This is an issue with host-named site collections that is disappointing considering Microsoft is recommending the use of HNSC.

  6. Increase the threshold to list views

    Currently, SharePoint Online has a threshold of 5000 items for a list view. While I, as a technical person, understand that the limit is to avoid performance penalties, the customers have a hard time understanding why SP is marketed as having the ability to store millions of records, but they can only manage 5000 items at once.

    Either increase the number or figure out a way to solve this limitation from the user's point of view. Saying "use search center" is not enough, as the users are expecting an Excel-like behavior to filter their information. Search, by definition, requires having…

  8. 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…

  9. Why can't the URL to a SharePoint Online site be changed to a new domain name?

    Unfortunately with Office 365, if you merge with another company or change you company name, you have to start all over with a new billing account and manually migrate email and shared documents on SharePoint just to change a domain name. Many companies merge or change names. This should be easy.

  10. Prevent users from creating new folders in the root of a document library but still be able to create subfolders within existing folders

    Each department has their own folder - Marketing, Sales, etc.

    There is no supported way to restrict users from creating new files or folders in the root of a document library.

  11. Moderate, delete or amend comments on a Modern Page in SharePoint

    I want to be able to delete or manage comments posted on a modern page. Where can I find a list of comments to manage as an admin? I work in a school and this feature is unusable unless we are able to manage the comments that get posted on a page. Ideally, all comments should go through an approval process before being posted.

  14. 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.

  15. Introduce support for taxonomy infrastructure via SharePoint REST API

    At the moment TaxonomySession and other taxonomy infrastructure-related resources and endpoints in the REST API are not supported.

    Ideally it would be great to add support for every existing CSOM namespaces such as Publishing, Taxonomy and etc. in REST API, basically the same way as it is implemented for User Profiles.

  16. 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).

  18. Set "show this view in folders of content type" with PowerShell | Modern experience

    Please add the ability to set "show this view in folders of content type" with PowerShell. This field is no editable right now.

    The missing possibility of editing leads to a lot of work in our IT department.

    Furthermore, please activate this view feature in the modern experience. This great feature deserves to be available in the modern experience...

    We are assuming that capacity is determined and specified at the time of initial creation, and expanded for specific groups or channels as necessary.
    For this reason, please implement a feature to set quota limits arbitrarily for each user, group, and channel in Microsoft Stream.

  20. Duplicate a site OR Save site as template

    Saving site as a template is only available in onpremise SharePoint. Being able to duplicate a site or save it as template is essential for SharePoint admins' productivity as it is needed to sometimes use the template of another site on a different project or to troubleshoot workflows or errors in SharePoint.
