  1. Change default Security settings for creating new Team Sites

    Hi We want to be able to set our own default settings for when a user generates a team site. At the moment the default is public we need to change the default to group members only, which I feel is the right approach with people haivng to change the security to increase access control.

  2. Regarding the auto created site collection while creating Office365 group

    I am aware that site collection is created automatically when I create Office365 group, but I do wish not to have it auto created while making Office 365 group.

  3. Allow External Content Types to be Shared Columns in Document Sets.

    Allow documents to inherit External Content Type columns from Document Sets. I'm trying to integrate CRM with SharePoint, and decided Document Sets were the way to go for each of my clients. I created an ECT for CRM and added it to my Document Set content type. However, I cannot make the ECT columns "shared columns" so I had to create a workflow to copy the data into a text column that is inheritable.

    I have thousands of clients being updated daily, so now I'm resorting to Scheduled Tasks and Workflows to do a job that should be built-in.

  4. Allow administrators to view emails that have been sent an invite link with no sign-in required

    Allow administrators to view emails that have been sent an invite link with no sign-in required. Currently, there is no way to view who has edit/view access to folders if they have been sent the link with no sing-in required. It would be nice to see who has access and be able to remove their access, if possible.

  5. Change access delegation notification criteria

    Access Delegation should check for a profile before notifying a manager that user's OneDrive data will be deleted in 30 days. We receive lots of false notifications as a result.

  6. Web App Policy

    There are support administrators that require access to be admins on all One Drive for Business sites that should NOT have access to SharePoint administration or any other SharePoint team sites.

    Likewise, there are support administrators that will need to have access to all SharePoint team sites that should not have access to SharePoint Administrator or the One Drive for Business sites.

    The only way to achieve this today is by scheduling a daily script to run against the target URLs to add the needed groups to the site collection administrators group, to ensure that newly created sites have the…

  7. Granular management of Add-Ins

    Today, when you add an Add-in from a particular sites collection in SharePoint Online, the Add-in becomes visible and available in your whole SharePoint Online environment.
    It would be benefic if Admins of the SharePoint Online tenant were able to centrally manage Add-ins (no matter if they were added through the SharePoint store from any sites collection or through the App Catalog) and have the possibility to define:

    - on which site collections installed Add-ins are made available - Most important request
    
    - who can add this Add-in (list of users or AD group)

    It will introduce better governance capabilities…

  8. this shouldn't take long

    Please change the snarky canned message that popups during certain CA processes from:

    "This shouldn't take long..."

    to

    "This really shouldn't be taking this long!!!"

  9. Provide an option to turn off SP Designer caching while developing..or remove it entirely as it's pointless.

    I've turned off the caching option in SPD settings but I still don't see changes that are made to js/css files unless I add a query parameter to the referenced url. This is a very tedious multistep process because master pages have to be checked out, and then approved all over again.
    Msft tells me "not all caching can be turned off" but can't explain why which is utterly absurd. The caching process seems to be poorly thought out: it seems to cache "some" files to a local machine (at %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\WebsiteCache) only when working in SPD which would be the…

  10. Certificates Created by SharePoint

    Since 2010 there are a set of SharePoint Deployed Certificates for SharePoint Security Token Service, SharePoint Security Token Service Encryption, and SharePoint Services. When a Farm is Created, the SharePoint Root Authority is not set to be trusted. When a farm is created or when a server is joined into a farm the SharePoint Root Authority could be added in as trusted to potentially mitigate slowness that may be experience per this KB:https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/2625048/site-slowness-because-of-sharepoint-sts-certificate-crl-checking

  11. Wish to use OneDrive for Business synchronizing client within roaming profil

    I am using some roaming profiles since my users move within their facilities and they sign in with their own users' accounts from the PCs set in their destinations. Consequently, I would like to use a synchronizing client even in the roaming profiles we use because I want to operate the files on Cloud with IE browse no matter which PCs my users sign in with.

  12. Subsites Notification

    It would be good to have an alert on site collection when it's reaching the recommended limit i.e. 2000 sub sites. Even better have it customized which means that I could recieve a notification when total number of sub sites within site collection is at 700 for example.

  13. Let me connect with the same engineer on various problems.

    I have talked with several support engineers. Although I have not been dissatisfied with any of them, there is one in particular, Doron Friedlander, who has been exceptionally beneficial for the level of marketing that I am doing. I would like to have the option of reconnecting with him regarding future challenges.

  15. Improve properties order

    Can you please make it easier to change the order of the properties? Now it is too labourintensive to bring a property from top to a new group at the bottom of the list, because:


    1. use of up/down -> drag/drop would be much faster

    2. changing order sometimes results in unexpected 'jumps' of a property, mostly back to it's original posision. Quite annoying....

  16. Need to have the ability to protect individual folders with confidential documentation eg for HR team

    At the moment all global admins can access our HR documents that include details of salaries and bonuses etc. There doesn't appear to be a way to prevent this. In our case we have created a separate HR folder in Google Drive which is of course not ideal

  17. OneDriveの外部共有を制限できるようにして欲しい

    One Driveの活用を進めたいが、OneDriveは利用者がサイトコレクション管理者となるため、「認証済み外部ユーザーとの共有を許可する」設定の場合、各人が、安易に組織外と共有することが可能と認識しているが間違いないか。そうであれば、組織外への情報漏洩を防ぐため、OneDriveでは、共有サイトとは異なる「組織外と情報共有が出来ない」設定ができるようにしたい。

  19. Sort People Column by Name

    If you have a column of "Person or Group" type, you are unable to sort the names in a view alphabetically. When you click on sort and filter at the top of the column in a view, you get the message "This column type cannot be sorted." However, all of the names below this message are displayed in alphabetical order, so it would seem this should be possible.

  20. I found a bug for sharepoint 2013

    Hi
    if you select Oslo layout ( that is a very beautiful layout) and you want add parameters in any list, you must use share point designer but this (List View Tools ---- Options--- Parameters ) tab are not show.!!!

    I found out quite by chance, I have a test site with Seattle layout and when i want to create parameters, I was very comfortable.

    for more details show this link:
