  1. PowerPivot for SharePoint 2016 Bug - Snapshots only generate for localhost

    I found a bug with PowerPivot for SharePoint 2016 and wanted to make sure it was brought to the team's attention. In short, I found that there's a hard dependency on "localhost" by the Excel Services REST API in SharePoint 2016. This means that workbook thumbnails will not generate in anything other than the first web app (if configured a specific way). I posted a blog with the details here: http://info.summit7systems.com/blog/bug-report-powerpivot-for-sharepoint-2016-thumbnails-not-generating. Support case 117021415318755 was created, so hopefully the bug report was submitted through it.

    Thanks, team!

  2. Make level access with sharing links more obvious

    An option to have the default level sharing permission 'view only'. At the moment all sharing links are edit by default but it's not obvious to the user from the 'get link' or 'share' dialogue box that they have to click on the link to change the settings. So whilst we need the option for external users to have edit access to content that's shared with them, this would not be our default unless it was clear at the point the end user is getting the link that they can change to view only. Please make this more obvious.

  3. Sharepoint Office 365

    We have a small team of 5 People within the organisation using Office365 SharePoint. Roughly a year and more ago on multiple instances SharePoint on the local teams individual PC's was not allowing the back of local SharePoint data, so in my particular case the team at Telstra who support Office365 in Australia had to make back ups of the SharePoint data however I have now up to 3 or 4 backups personally and this was caused when the team said that our naming conventions where to long and not acce3ptable with SharePoint online. The issiue is we cannot migrate…

  4. healthy company

    Microsoft should provide the companies of a good security system for the documents and websites and an easy oversight of needs of a director: writing letters, contact via mail and video. The rest, inside information and contacts belongs to the company.

  6. Maintain version history when copying files in Sharepoint

    When copying files in Sharepoint (https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Move-or-copy-a-folder-file-or-link-in-a-document-library-00e2f483-4df3-46be-a861-1f5f0c1a87bc) it should retain the version information of the files moved rather than just creating a new version of the file, basically making the latest version, 1.0.

    This is a useless feature at the moment as it only serves as another method to copy files between sites and is no different than downloading them and uploading them to another site.

  8. Consistent labelling and navigation in Sharepoint Admin Center

    Better align labelling of objects and features especially where the object is alive and there are stages to configuring and then using it. I.e. don't use one label at the point of setting up the object to then use a completely different label for the same value after it's been created. Consistent labelling of objects and features across views please i.e. App Secret is referred to when creating / connecting an App but after the app is created there's no reference to the App secret via the admin center. It can be retreived via some Powershell but for something that's…

  11. Have a report that confirms when a user accessed a file (Displayed)

    The idea relates to answering a question if a person had accessed a file being shared on SharePoint.

    This will allow the business to audit who has viewed which file, and what time. The report will allow where security breaches occurred and solve them as well as identify individuals who can be using inside information to tip off fraudsters and criminals. By allowing a report like this to be available, one can also confirm whether users accessed information and what information they are accessing during the performance of their duties. Business Improvement can then work on how to reduce search…

  13. Delve の画面でユーザー プロファイルの編集画面に遷移する文字リンクをクリックした際の動作について

    OneDrive for Business へのアクセス権が許可されていない場合、ユーザー プロファイルの編集画面に遷移するための "こちら" もしくは "編集”という文字リンクをクリックしても反応がありません。アクセス権がない場合、それをわかりやすくするために、「アクセス権がありません」などのメッセージが表示されるようにしたい。

  14. App Launcher on prem 2.0

    I really appreciated you bringing App launcher to on-premises, but you gave us the first generation of app launcher, and O365 is already many versions ahead which allows end-users to customized it and search within. As enterprise we like to embrace the App launcher, but really need the last version that has all the newest updated changes.

  18. Delve 画面より他のユーザーのアカウント名の検索について

    Delveの画面にて、画面左上にある検索ボックスにて、他のユーザー名を入力し、検索を行ったところ、検索結果には該当ユーザーのログオン名 (メール アドレス) が確認できる状態である。
    ユーザー名を検索してもログオン名が検索できないようする設定が現在実装されていないが、今後、セキュリティ保護の観点から、検索をしてもログイン名が表示されないような機能を実装するようにしてほしい。

  19. upon employee termination the manager should NOT have access to the OneDrive account

    If the My Site Cleanup is enabled and a manager is specified for the employee in AD, when that employee is terminated the manager is given access as a Secondary Owner. This allows the manager to view/edit/delete information located in the employee OneDrive account. This can be very dangerous in a couple of ways. First - Confidential or private HIPPA information might be stored in the One Drive account. Second - If there is a legal situation concerning the terminated employee, the manager has the ability to change or delete documents that should be archived unchanged - not knowing if…

  20. Prevent users from sharing anonymously if a DLP policy is flagged

    Currently, it's an all or nothing setting for anonymous sharing. With a good DLP protocol, users would be allowed to share anonymously unless a file/folder has been flagged for DLP
