  2. Exclude Conditional Access Policy on SharePoint Online for external users

    The option to apply Conditional Access Policies (CAS) on SharePoint Online is a great relief. This will definitely help assure access to our user base is only from defined IP ranges. We leverage TeamSites predominantly for internal collaboration (98%) and we also use TeamSites for external sharing for collaboration (2%) with our vendors.

    We would like to leverage CAS for our internal users so that they access the content only from intranet. If we leverage CAS - it will prevent external users from accessing our tenant. How can we we best use both the offering i.e External Sharing and Conditional…

  4. Origianl Domain Name Change

    Looks like I'm stuck with the original domain name I chose in the early days of OS365 creation/adoption; ideally I would like to be able to change the domain name, to match my new company name. I'm reliably informed that Microsoft can't do this at present...but its not unusual for a company to change its name and one would expect that SharePoint and associated email accounts, etc could change to suit.

  5. allow admin to force check-in for unchecked in files, but retain the original owner and data/time stamp

    Currently there is a feature called "Manage files with no checked in version."
    The challenge with this is that the admin doesn't have the ability to force the check-in. The admin can take ownership, then check in the file, but this loses the file metadata of the person who originally uploaded the file ("owner") and the date-time stamp that they uploaded/added it.
    Usually, when there is a need to look at these files, it is because they are hidden from everyone but the "owner" and the owner didn't realize they needed to check the file in. There is no value…

  6. Enable auditing of file actions (open, view etc.) on SharePoint Online

    SharePoint Online would solve numerous problems for our business but our involvement with certain organisations means we have to have a full audit trail of when every policy document gets opened, viewed etc. Without this we can't implement SharePoint online and we don't have the resources for an on premises option.

    ■Title(件名):
    "サービス正常性" に記載する障害の基準の明示及び自動復旧で改善した障害の情報を開示する機能の拡充
    Improvements to the information concerning faults and automatic recovery described in “Service health”


    ■Description(内容):
    自動復旧で障害が改善した場合、"サービス正常性" に記載もないため、障害の状況も把握できず、対応に苦慮している。
    "サービス正常性" に記載する障害の基準の明示及び自動復旧で改善した障害の情報を開示するを希望します。

    When a fault has been resolved by automatic recovery, it does not show in “Service health”, so we don’t know what the nature of the failure was, and therefore we don’t have a satisfactory explanation for it.
    Please make it so that the failure criteria and information about failures resolved by automatic recovery are accessible in “Service health”.

    In order to improve company effectiveness, please add this functionality.

  11. Do not allow users with only viewing permissions to view contents of access right management

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    閲覧権限のユーザーにはアクセス許可の管理を表示させないでほしい
    Do not allow users with only viewing permissions to view contents of access right management


    ■Description(内容):
    閲覧権限のユーザーにもアクセス許可の管理が表示されるため、サイトやドキュメントを誰と共有しているか、サイトの所有者が誰かという、コンテンツの閲覧以上の情報が見えている。
    閲覧権限のユーザーにはアクセス許可の管理を表示させないでほしい。

    Since users with viewing rights can also view the access rights management interface, they can see who the sites/documents are shared with and who the site’s owner is – i.e. they can see more information than just the content itself.
    Please do not allow users with only read access to see the access rights management information.

    Please make the "Show or Hide" setting possible for every single user for all usable apps

    アプリランチャーのタイル (SharePoint Online など利用可能なアプリ) を、ユーザーごとに "表示または非表示" 設定が可能になることを希望。※アプリ自体を "表示または非表示" にすることで、ユーザーの利用制限をあらかじめ設定でき、管理がしやすい。
    We hope that the "Show or Hide" setting for the app launcher tile (useable apps like SharePoint Online etc.) can be set for every single user. *By changing the "Show or Hide" setting for the app itself, user usage restrictions can be set in advance and becomes easier to manage.

  13. wiki ページを他のサイト コレクションにコピーしたい I want to copy a wiki page to another site collection

    チーム サイトにはテンプレート機能でサイト コレクションのコピーが出来るのに、Wiki ページのコピーが出来ないのは納得いかないです。
    業務上、Wiki ページのコピーが必要不可欠となっています。
    早期的な解決、改善をお願いいたします。

    I can't be convinced that team sites can copy site collections using the template function but cannot copy wiki pages.
    A copy of the wiki page is essential for business.
    Thank you for your early resolution and improvement.

  14. Method for automatically collecting the audit logs of Site Collections

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    サイト コレクションの監査ログ自動で収集する方法
    Method for automatically collecting the audit logs of Site Collections


    ■Description(内容):
    今までは サイト コレクションの監査ログにて自動でトリミングを行い、定期的にドキュメントライブラリに保存することができた。
    この度動作が変わり、自動でトリミングができなくなりました。
    毎回手動でログを取得し、ライブラリにアップロードすることは困難であるため、今までのように自動でログを収集しライブラリに保存される機能の実装を希望します。

    Until recently, the audit logs of site collections would automatically be trimmed and could be regularly saved in a document library.
    However, recently it has ceased to be possible to automatically trim the logs.
    It is time-consuming to manually gather the logs and upload them to libraries, so we would like to see the previous automatic functionality restored.

  15. Enable addition of all list apps in the list preview webpart in modern site page

    At present, only custom lists are enabled to be viewed in the list preview webpart of the modern site pages. It will be great, if other lists such as Announcements, tasks etc. are also enabled for this list preview webpart.

  16. Make Set-SPOTenant -UserVoiceForFeedbackEnabled:$false have effect on all modern pages

    Please fix it so that Set-SPOTenant -UserVoiceForFeedbackEnabled:$false will have influence on ALL modern SharePoint Online pages.

    Right now when applying this, it only removes the feedback from the modern Site Pages. Not from any other modern page like the list views or the site contents. This makes its behavior inconsistent and confusing.

  17. Change the default link type per site collection

    I'd like to be able to change the default link type per site collection or even better per site, not just at the tenant level. This ability would reduce incorrect sharing in tightly restricted site collections.

  19. JPG file is changing " Modified" time automatically

    After uploading a JPG file from Internet Explorer, the “Modified” time will be displayed the time which in the image’s properties for a while.
    But after one day, when I confirm the file from “Open with Explorer” in the library, the “Modified” time of the JPG file is overwritten by the file’s uploaded time.
    But office files and PNG files do not cause this issue.
    It would be really helpful if the JPG file can also be remained to the time which in the image’s properties by “Open with Explorer” like any other types of the file.

  20. SharePoint Site Usage Report has only specific templates

    The SharePoint Site usage report under O365 Admin Portal includes only two templates (Group and Team sites)

    A tenant may have other types of sites like publishing, document center, etc. As this report has only two templates, the report isn't accurate and isn't helpful.
    It will be great if all the SharePoint templates are included in the report.
