  1. Encrypt and password protect individual files and folders within OneDrive!

    Within OneDrive, it would put MANY of my users minds to rest if they could simply have an action available, in the same place as preview, share, copy link, etc..., for a file or folder, called ENCRYPT. When this action is performed on a file or folder, they would be prompted for a password and informed that the file or folder was being encrypted and not to forget the password. Then... even if the file was shared, or the account credentials compromised, the encrypted file could not be accessed without this specific encryption password. Reversing the process would offer an…

  3. Users should get feedback about current status of issues being fixed by the development team

    When users make contacts to customer support and customer support answers that the issue is currently being fixed by the development team, users are unable to hear about current status of the issue which is being investigated by the development team.

    Support case number and issue number should be linked together. The user who made the contact, should be able to acquire information about the current status of the issue via Message Center etc..

    ----------------------------------------------------------

    サポートあてに問い合わせを行い、その結果、開発部門で検証中となった場合、その案件の進捗について問い合わせを行ったユーザーが知る手段がありません。

    サポートあてに行った問い合わせの番号と、開発部門で検証中となった案件の番号を紐づかせ、問い合わせを行ったユーザーは、案件の進捗状況をメッセージセンターなどから確認できることが望ましいです。

  5. Resize columns in Contents (site contents) for SharePoint Online

    There is no ability to resize the columns in the Contents (site contents) page. So for any apps, libraries or lists that have a title (name) with a decent amount of characters it gets cut off and it's hard to quickly tell what the title is. We have sites with numerous document libraries with long names where it takes a long time to pinpoint a particular library. You have to hover over the title on each library to get the full name. We should have the same functionality as you do when in a list or library where you can…

  6. Enable UK users to use date format dd/mm/yyyy in one drive and excel online.

    Hi,

    Can you please enable UK users to use date format DD/MM/YYYY as standard in Office 365 (especially Excel and Onedrive). I thought O365 will provide an excellent solution to our collaboration and file storage needs, but I have now had to delay/ put on hold deployment after discovering that dates automatically default to US format mm/dd/yyyy. I am aware that it is possible to display dates which are inputted in US format in the UK format, but these dates need to be inputted in US format. That does not come naturally to the team and and causes issues with…

  7. [SharePoint Online] Send the new post - Identify user name and BCC function

    Features:

    When send the new post, we want these features.
    1. Enable the BCC function.
    2. Automatically identify the users name through inputting amounts of email address.

    =========================

    Advantages:
    1. When we send the new post, we don't need to input the email address by each other. It enhances the work performance.
    2. BCC function is actually required on work.

    =========================

    Repo steps:
    We have two account: UserA@domain.onmicrosoft.com , UserB@domian.onmicrosoft.com.
    If we want to share the new post, the name will not be resolved.
    Step: Put the e-mail address in the txt file. Select all and paste to the…

  8. Provide an option to change Sharepoint default search without "/siteall?q="

    It would be useful to provide a simple configuration option in Site Settings to change the default the search result scope from "site all" to "all content", eg

    From this default search results /sites/sitecollection/_layouts/15/search.aspx/siteall?q=Strategy

    to this /sites/sitecollection/_layouts/15/search.aspx?q=Strategy

    Currently, if you run a search from a hub site or site collection using the modern search, the default search includes the "siteall?q=" which often returns unhelpful or zero results and without People results. Clicking on "search all content" returns useful results including People search results.

    Ref https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/SharePoint/Search-on-modern-communication-site-url-issue-with-quot-siteall/m-p/205324/highlight/false#M18811

  10. Display more information in the Office 365 sharing experience

    Display more information in the Office 365 sharing experience

    We have 50000+ users in our tenant. Our naming convention is {First name} {Last Name} causing a lot of duplicate display names. We can use email address or department to differentiate the users but even within a single department there can be duplicates.

    The sharing prompt is only showing display name for us since title is not set for our users. When title is not set, the department attribute is not shown. The userprincipalname/email address is also not shown. Profile pictures for users are only shown online.

    This is causing a…

  12. Enable multi-geo support for smaller tenants

  13. Centralize all audit logs within the security and compliance centre

    Not all mailbox audit logs are recorded in the 'Audit log search' within the Security and Compliance Centre. Only the following are recorded here: Update,MoveToDeletedItems,SoftDelete,HardDelete. All other mailbox auditings can be retrieved from the Exchange Admin Centre 'Auditing' section. An example of what you won't see is: if a user creates an inbox rule to forward emails externally, this is only recorded in the EAC auditing section.

    All auditing should be available in one place, not split between different sections of the portal. Considering the Security and Compliance center is new and this is being pushed out, I don't see…

  18. Want you to remove UserPrincipalName from the email header

    I would like you to remove UserPrincipalName from the email header or implement a feature to delete email header, especially when sending an email which has different value for PrimarySMTPAddress and UserPrincipalName. Because if this kind of email has been sent, X-MS-Exchange-CrossTenant-userprincipalname would be included in the email header, and UserPrincipalName would be recorded. From the security perspective, I’m concerning it may lead to fraudulent access if UserPrincipalName is included in the email header.
