  1. Security and Compliance site permission change alerts

    It would be great to be able to target specific site collections for permission change event alerting in the Security and Compliance Center.

    Currently right now you have to target the entire SharePoint Online tenant if you want to configure alerts around Site Collection Admin added and SharePoint site permissions change events which might not be required outside of sites that contain confidential data.

  2. Modern Communication Template Top Navigation Does Not Update with PnP Commands

    Please allow the modern templates top navigation bar to reflect all changes pushed out using the PnPNavigation commands. At this time the navigation links seems to be disconnected and editable independently.

    This issue does NOT happen with the modern team site. Those links update correctly.

  4. Item level permission in Sharepoint Online

    Using Sharepoint Designer, we ca create the workflow which breaks the item level permission and assign new using Impersonates attribute but the problem in this is it not works every time.

    Facing an issue many times that workflow is not execute in proper manner. So there any alternative for this.

    I have found different alternatives as follow:
    1. Azure service
    2. Custom service hosted on local machine
    3. Using javascript object model (called from page it self)
    4. By creating custom windows service which run every hour and set the permission
    5. Third party provider like Nintex

    All above options…

  5. Please update documentation

    Please keep documentation up to date. This article led our users down the incorrect path for managing Site Access Request settings.

  6. Use GUIDs for Site Columns Instead of Names

    I would like you to alter how site columns are handled so that I can create custom new columns with the same name as the base columns, such as Department and Location. GUIDs should be used to keep track of the columns, and not by the actual name when used to create the column.

  8. Giving up on SharePoint

    I just want to say that I'm giving up on SharePoint. Without a GUI interface in SharePoint Designer, I can't accomplish the attention to detail that I could before. I work for local government and most people in this industry just use their shared network drive. I used to push SharePoint but, without being a coder or programmer, I can't show them what SharePoint is capable of. Our IT department only uses it agency wide projects. A regular end user like me is wasting their time. Back to Excel and shared drives, I go.

  10. Allow Admins to customize Document library folder icon from library setting

    Currently there is no out-of-box way to customize the folder icon, it will be nice if allow user to choose custom folder icon in SharePoint directly from library/site setting

  11. map to sharePoint online Library with a GPO

    SharePoint online does not have the ability to map ( by GPO) to a library.

    I don't want a synch client. I want the ability to set up a policy that attaches a library to everyone in a AD security group

  12. Post the Swagger definitions of the User Profiles and Web APIs on a CDN

    I'm not sure if tenant-specific information would be included in a Swagger definition, but it seems there should be publicly-available Swagger definitions (in JSON and YAML) of the User Profiles and Web APIs so they can be more easily tapped into. If there are lines that need to be configured for specific tenants, provide instructions on how to do so.

  13. Token Timeout

    Provide 2 different Token Timeouts for User and Groups. With the default TokenTimeout settings, updates to Active Directory Groups aren't reflected until 24 hours after changes are made. This is a serious risk when a user's permissions are removed from a site. By allowing different settings for Users and Groups, we could refresh just the Group Token Timeout to a more acceptable time for my company without impacting the User Token Timeout.

  15. Allow multiple template documents to be associated with a content type

    Optionally allow content types to point to a templates library, and include all documents associated with the content type in that library in a sub-menu when you click New.

    Consider for example a content type called Report. The same content type would probably be used for many different types of reports.

    It would also be nice to allow templates from a number of different libraries to be included. That way you could provide for corporate templates, departmental templates, and team or site templates.

  20. Improve the behavior regarding Web sites added to Teams app' tab.

    ■Title(件名):Teams アプリのタブに Web サイトを追加した場合について

    Improve the behavior regarding Web sites added to Teams app' tab.

    When it comes to the registration of Web sites to Teams app's tab, I am currently aware that some sites are displayed and others are not shown and also recognize that the displayed or non-displayed Web sites are running as default behavior. For the convenience of the use of Teams app's tab, I hope that the Web sites registered to its tab will be shown regardless of the types of site.
