  3. 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。

  4. 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…

  5. 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

  6. add an option to a specific file to be set as "Must check-out"

    I have a file that I want to be accessed and updated, only if the user checks-out the file. I do not want others to be able to download a copy of this checked out file.
    I believe this can be done at Library level, but can't be done at file level.

  7. SharePoint Online Sync for Windows should be supported on Windows 7 with Internet Explorer

    SharePoint Online Sync for Windows is not supported on Windows 7 with Interent Explorer but whereas it is supported by other browsers(Mozilla Fire Fox and Google Chrome). I suggest you to improve this feature so it is supported for Internet Explorer on Windows 7. Our users are chiefly using Windows 7 and IE only as per out IT policy and we want this feature as early as possible working on windows 7 and IE and it is very cool feature.

  9. Allow the ability to hide the OneDrive tile in the App Launcher in SharePoint Server 2016

    By default the OneDrive tile is provisioned in the App Launcher in SharePoint Server 2016. If there is a need to suppress this tile for a period of time there is no way to do that without using CSS.

  10. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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…

  16. 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…

  17. this shouldn't take long

    "This shouldn't take long..."

    to

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

  18. 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…

  19. 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

  20. 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.
