  1. Fuck ms and sharepoint

    Easy way to delete everything is sharepoint and completely disable it

  2. More diversion in Site Usage

    It would be great to see who is watching with what in SharePoint Site Usage. Desktop, tablet or smartphone f.i.

    Browser and OS would also be nice!

  3. Give Armed Forces (FPO, AE) The option to pay with credit cards online!!!! What a slap in the face to your military members!

  6. Allow MS Flow to be triggers from a retention policy

    We need the capability of triggering a MS Flow when content meets retention policy conditions. The aim being to wrap the content in appropriate business processes for managing the retention of the content. The current configuration for a retention policy is to email a specific user account. This is difficult as the user may no longer be with the organisation. Likewise it should not be a 'service account' as how many service accounts should we be expected to maintain. Having the option to trigger a MS Flow removes numerous steps in the administration process.

  8. Allow creation of custom views for site lists

    Currently in the "new" SPOnline Admin Center, there are several "built-in views". I'd like to create my own. For example, I want to view all non-Team sites... I can't manage Team sites as I'm not an Office 365 Global Admin, just a SharePoint Admin, and if I can't manage them, I don't want to see them in my default view.

  9. Monitoring, Reporting and Management of Site Collection App Catalog

    No current Site Listing, Reporting or Monitoring capabilities available within SharePoint Online Admin Center on Site Collection App Catalog.
    This is currently only possible by using PowerShell scripts to interrogate the entire Tenancy Site Collection list and inspecting each Site Collection for the presence of an "AppCatalog" library and respective Feature Definition ID which is not sustainable against a growing large volume of Site Collections within Tenancy.

    Seeking interest consideration for SharePoint Admin Center to have UI capabilities to report or list Site Collections that have Site Collection App Catalog enabled as well as Reporting drill-down capability from App /…

  11. Trust Some Domains More Than Others

    When a business merger happens we want the businesses collaborating fast and we want to allow all staff to be able to share documents with this new family member, whilst at the same time restricting staff from sharing to other external domains. Some domains are more trust worthy than others. It would be good to allow a more open experience for some domains whilst being more restrictive for others.

  13. Support HSM certificates in SharePoint (for STS)

    SharePoint cannot use HSM based certificates for the Security Token Service. Allowing this type of certificates will increase the Security.

    SharePoint has to Export the private Key of the used certificates to allow distributing the certificates to all Servers in the farm. This is not possible with HSM certificates.

  14. Enable control LookUp Column threshold in SharePoint Online

    Allow SharePoint Online Administrators to control their farm's Look-Up Column threshold and List View Thresholds. Throttling these down to 8 or 12 Look-Up Columns for a list/library prevents basic functions from working after merely a few Person Column or Managed Metadata columns are created after the two that are created by default (Created By, Modified By).

  15. Fix the bug please - Site pages into Document Library content type

    Fix the bug where you can add "Site pages" to a document library as a content type, however it doesn't work since you get a lot of errors with the newly created page.

  16. Change shared zip files to display as a file, not in folder view

    Sharepoint Online
    When a zip file is shared and the recipient is presented with a folder view this implies that they should select what they want from inside the zip and click download. Doing this results in Sharepoint attempting to zip a folder\file contained in a zip for download, which results in an empty zip download. (Take a folder containing data and zip it. Upload to Sharepoint Online. Share it. When recipient clicks link have them select anything in zip and click download. They get a 1kb empty zip.)
    It is understood you can just click the shared link then…

  17. SharePoint Admin Center Preview Message Center

    In the SharePoint Admin Center Preview it offers the SharePoint Admin the ability to view messages in the Message Center. However, when they click on a given message to get the full details it denies them access stating that they don't have permissions to the requested page. This is because it redirects them back to the O365 Admin Center, which they do not, and should not, have permissions to. I would highly recommend that this be addressed. If it is in the SharePoint Admin Center, Preview or otherwise, the SharePoint Admin should have access to it, otherwise why even have…

  18. Option to change the opening action for files associated with List Item

    It would be great if you could change the file-opening action for files associated with List Item.
    We would like the action to be changed at user-level.
    Currently, when we upload files to the item body or to the list for SharePoint List Item, the following scenarios will occur:
    1) Files which were uploaded to the item body and if it can be opened in Office client, will be opened in the local client app when it’s downloaded.
    2) Files uploaded as attachments will be opened in Office Online.
    We would like users to select actions by themselves.

  19. The permission for per items on Document Library

    I would like to control the permission of items by setting through Document Library rather than controlling permission on per items in SharePoint Online.

  20. Create user profiles in SPO for shared mailboxes (EDU tenants)

    Our university is an EDU tenant of Microsoft, and we have a lot of shared mailboxes (as unlicensed users, sync'd from AD > AAD > SPO).
    From time to time, SharePoint site admins wants to use such mailboxes to be the central contact point for enquiries etc, and the best way to do it is to put it up as the "page author".

    However, because it is an EDU tenant, unlicensed users do not get user profiles created in User Profile application (UPA), and show up as "external users" when they are entered, or email address is entered in people…
