  2. External User Access - Need better workaround to invite external users

    Administrator should better "External User" invitation process. Recently we had a project where the client was in the "Office 365" environment, however, we did not know that they had an "On-Prem" Exchange with a separate "Microsoft Login". So when we sent the message to their "existing" email, they kept getting errors "Access Denied". After a VERY LONG Microsoft support process, the SharePoint Team sent me to the Azure AD Team. Then the Azure AD team sent me back to the SharePoint Team. LISTEN UP MICROSOFT, your current External Permissioning process STINKS!!!!! We need to be able to set the users…

  4. Remove characters limitations in folders and file names

    If it's a valid name in Windows, it should be also in Sharepoint.

  6. Ability to download malicious files for Security Admins

    If "Set-SPOTenant -DisallowInfectedFileDownload $true" is set, and an infected file is detected, there is no way to download it for analysis, for security team. It would be great to give such access to Security Admins or another role and be able to download the file as a password protected zip for analysis and determine if it's a fale or true positive.

  8. Fix differences in the display of Microsoft Search ProvisioningStatus in PowerShell between tenants and users

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    PowerShell で表示される Microsoft Search の ProvisioningStatus がテナントとユーザーで表示に差異がでる動作について改善を希望します
    Fix differences in the display of Microsoft Search ProvisioningStatus in PowerShell between tenants and users


    ■Description(内容):
    ライセンス、サービスの付与を PowerShell でアカウントごとに設定しているため、テナントの Microsoft Search のProvisioningStatus が Success で表示されているにも拘らず、ユーザーで ProvisioningStatus を確認すると PendingProvisioning で表示されているため、Office 365 管理センターで確認作業が必要になり手間がかかる。
    また、Office 365 管理センターの確認についてはアカウントに当該ライセンスを付与する必要がありさらに作業工程が増えてしまいます。
    "このアプリは組織レベルで割り当てられています。ユーザーごとに割り当てることはできません" に該当するサービスについてはテナントで確認する ProvisioningStatus をユーザーで表示されている PendingProvisioning に統一して表示することを希望します。

    We use PowerShell to check license and service assignments for each account, and regardless of whether the tenant’s Microsoft Search ProvisioningStatus is shown as “Success”, checking it from the user’s side shows it as PendingProvisioning, thus requiring extra work to check it via the Office 365 Admin Center.

  9. PowerShell "Site owners and members, and people with Edit permissions can share files and folders, but only site owners can share the site"

    The ability to set the SharePoint Online site sharing permissions setting to "Site owners and members, and people with Edit permissions can share files and folders, but only site owners can share the site" using PowerShell, this way it can be set for a large number of sites via scripting. Currently Microsoft tells me this is not possible via PowerShell and can only be done manually per site.

  10. 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.

  11. Allow Managed Path defaults for both Team Sites and Communication Sites

    Currently, the SharePoint Online admin center allows you to configure a "default" managed path (i.e. /teams/ or /sites/) for newly created sites.

    This configuration under Admin Center > Settings > Site Creation reads as: "Create Team sites under [DROPDOWN]".

    Despite the mention of Team Sites here specifically, the same default is being applied to Communication Sites as they're created outside of the admin center.

    A default managed path should be allowed to be configured for both Team Sites and Communication Sites independently.

    Example:
    Human Resources (HR) requires both a private area to collaborate securely on employee data but also needs…

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

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    利用可能なアプリについて "表示または非表示" 設定をユーザーごと可能となるように
    Please make the "Show or Hide" setting possible for every single user for all usable apps


    ■Description(内容):
    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. Improving the standard commandlet feature for SharePoint Online

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    SharePoint Online の標準コマンドレッドの機能拡充について
    Improving the standard commandlet feature for SharePoint Online


    ■Description(内容):
    現在の SharePoint Online の標準コマンドレッドでは細かい設定が行えず、PnP などのオープン ソースを利用しなければならない。オープン ソースは自身でモジュールの更新など行わなければならなかったり、コミュニティやフォーラム以外のサポートがないため、不便である。
    PowerShell を利用して業務の仕組みを組み込むことが多いが、標準コマンドででくることが少なく、オープンソースの利用だと Online の魅力がなくなってしまうため、Microsoft がサポートする標準コマンドレッドの機能拡充を要望します。
    Currently the standard commandlets for SharePoint Online cannot be used to make settings in detail, so open source like PnP had to be used instead. However for open source we have to update the modules ourselves and there is no support other than the community and forums, so it is inconvenient.
    PowerShell is used frequently to incorporate operation mechanisms, but not much can be done using the standard commands, if open source…

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. Enable to see the number of page views in SharePoint sites

    It would be great that we could see the page views to check the site metrics. Currently, we can see page views by site-level via Site usage, but it would be great if we can count views per page.

  17. Connecting Communication sites to office 365 groups

    We would like the ability to connect our existing Communication sites to Office 365 groups. WE don't want to migrate those sites over again to a team site. Anyone else thinks they could use this option?

  18. follower

    In the SharePoint site usage page "_layouts/15/siteanalytics.aspx?view=19" it would be good to have the number of users following the site. This information is not available anywhere but it's very important in a corporate context.
    For an Hub site it would be good to have the number of followers of the Hub and the aggregated number of followers of the sites associated to the hub (nice to have)

  19. 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.

  20. Azure AD access review on level of single (shared) site collection

    External sharing is decided by site owner, and configured on site collection level. Access review should be on same granularity. Current it is only possible on group level (but group can be authorized to multiple sites, thus also multiple site owners), or App = SharePoint Online, thus for ALL site collections.
