  1. Spontaneous Catalog Creation Template

    Huhu,
    ich möchte ein template für einen Katalog erstellen, dem sehr schnell Fotos, Artikelnummern und Beschreibungstexte zugeordnet werden können. Der Eintrag soll in Form einer Liste erfolgen, die Ansicht soll aber die Größe der Bilder auf ein Maß begrenzen, dass Artikelnummer und Beschreibungstext noch Raum finden. Jederzeit sollen zusätzliche Referenzen als zusätzliche Spalten der Liste angelegt werden können, damit die Anzeige der Vielzahl von Bildern eingeschränkt werden kann. Die Menge solcher Attribute muss 20 nicht überschreiten.

  2. Onedrive security feature for Business

    Hi guys!

    I would like to recommend a security feature which is to control when the colleagues are able to access the shared folders. Example from 9am - 6pm, Mondays - Fridays.

    This is due to company's business requirement.

    With Regards,

    Stephen
    Network Administrator

  3. Add PowerShell Commands from SharePoint 2013 Like Get-SPWeb

    I am finding that the SharePoint Online module is limiting me in some of the actions I can take as an administrator in comparison to SP 2013. One command that is missing is Get-SPWeb. You can get the site through Get-SPOSite but there is no Get-SPOWeb. I would use this to unlock locked files on the SharePoint server and other administrative functions. Please include more commands for SharePoint in PowerShell.

  4. Customization

    When an OD4B account is deleted a message is sent to the deleted user manager. We want the data owner to make decisions on the user data (not IT) so this approach is great. However, the message is very generic and is confusing the user.
    It will be great if we will have the option to customize the message and provide some specific instructions to the manager specific for our company (including Help desk support number just in case).

  6. Delete Permission Groups in Bulk

    We run a PPM system that uses SharePoint Online and Project Online - the system creates 6 permission groups for every project created - even test projects where a SharePoint site is associated with it. Now for us to clean up the groups - there appear to be only 2 options: remove them one by one (very tedious) or remove them using scripting (PowerShell?). I feel like there should be an easier way to view the list of groups and allow you to click-select multiple groups to delete them (or perform similar actions). This is how it works when you…

  7. Change Edit My Profile link title

    SharePoint Online User Profile managment still uses "Edit My Profile", this is not applicable most of the time. Please change to Edit profile to remove the confusion when editing someone else's user profile.

  8. use automate to help with file uploads

    Get a new pc and put in on the same local network as the computer running sharepoint. Use automate on the pc to log in to sharepoint and make changes. After a while of sharepoint use this idea will sound good. Put automate on the other pc. It would just make it easier to use automate on a different pc than the one running sharepoint.

  13. Make the onprem CU updates NOT break your environment...

    MS support tech suggested i post here so i am doing so.

    We do our best to avoid putting ourselves into the situation of having to do a CU but unfortunately there was a compliance issue so we had no choice.

    Our environment has been down for over 5 weeks now...

    Microsoft's suggestion is always to start from scratch but we cannot keep loosing work and as one cannot clone an environment all of the settings are lost as well.

  17. Add "% quota used" column to new Site Management page

    On the new Site Administration/Site Management page, you are able to sort sites by their size. Would it be possible to add "% used of quota" (and have it be a sortable column) in that view?

  20. In Modern Groups, automatically open links to documents shared from other Groups in the browser rather than downloading a copy.

    Recently, a change has been made to how Modern Groups handles documents shared between groups within an organization. Now, when a viewable or editable link is added to a document library via the "+ New Link" button, that document does not open up in the appropriate online application (Word, PPT, Excel). Instead it downloads a copy to my computer. I can force the document to open in browser by adding ?=Web to the end of the URL, but not all of my users will do that or know how to do that.

    Please bring back features that allow groups to…
