  1. Make is possible to change tenant name in Office365

    Iv realized that there is no option to change the tenant name in Office365.

    This would be a great tool for businesses that change their name and want to keep their current solution in Office365.

    A simple task like changing the tenant name for Office365 would save businesses allot of time.

  2. Tenant-wide time zone setting for SharePoint (at least)

    It doesn't make any sense to me to have to set the time zone per Site Collection. For an organization that sits in one time zone, having to change every Site Collection from PST to the local time zone is tedious. If there were a single overarching setting that Site Collections could inherit from, it would make things a lot easier.

  3. Need a way to force sync all my users' photos from exchange online to sharepoint online

    Need a way to force sync all my users' photos from exchange online to sharepoint online. The user photos do not sync unless they visit their profile page. But many of our users don't do that resulting in the blank head shot photo which annoys our upper mgmt. We ask our users to hit their profile page but they do not always comply and we have thousands of users. So the photo feature is of limited usefulness and just ends up confusing people who expect a photo to show for everyone in the company. This has been a big problem…

  4. Option to disable Flow and PowerApps

    I really need an option that will disable Flow and PowerApps for all sites within a site collection while retaining the "new experience" for libraries and lists. Ideally, the option to enable/disable Flow is a separate from enabling/disabling PowerApps.

    Management has requested from me to remove these options, but I cannot do that without removing the "new experience" that our users have grown accustomed to and prefer. Flow and PowerApps provide new functionality that we cannot support at this point in time and is not part of our SharePoint Online training and rollout plan.

  6. Change default language in Sharepoint (OneDrive)

    For an international company, it is important to define the company language (e.g. English) as the default language. Unfortunately, when initializing O365, the language is set according to the location (in our case "German"). This is devastating because all SharePoint pages (including OneDrive) are subsequently created in "German". This should at least be pointed out.
    Unfortunately there is no possibility to change the default language afterwards. The workarounds with multi-language support are not satisfactory. Nevertheless, German continues to dominate in many areas

    Please point out the importance of the language during the initial setup and give the possibility to select…

  7. Report which shows the amount of OneDrive for Business storage per user.

    Hello,

    It would be great to be able to compile reports which show the OneDrive for Business usage per user.

    Reporting this idea by suggestion of Andy Sek:

    RE: Check OneDrive for Business size per user
    Reply by Andy Sek MSFT Support
    Hi Andy,
    Currently, there is no report that includes the OneDrive for Business storage usage for each user. You may need to use the Global administrator account to access each OneDrive for Business to have a check.
    To be honest, to get a report is a good idea. To better serve you, we would suggest that you submit…

    We are currently working on this report. We will have a OneDrive site usage report that not only shows how much storage each OneDrive user is consuming, but also how many files they have on the site, and how much activity that site is experiencing.

  8. SharePoint Document Library limit of 5000 - Ridiculous

    We planned to migrate from Dropbox to a SharePoint document library and when implemented, we immediately hit the 5000 item limit in a library. This is ridiculous in 2018. We have used folders with over 35,000 files on Dropbox without any issues. This is an unfortunate limit for a product that is called Office365 for business.

    Please increase this limit or provide another means to load and backup large datasets.

  9. Usage reports for SharePoint

    Provide centralized usage reports for entire SharePoint Online tenant such as page views, user sessions, usage per site collection, etc. Individual site collection reports are ok but are not centralized.

    We are working on many of these report areas right now. We have a tenant-wide user activity report in development right now. The next report we will work on will be a tenant-wide site usage and activity report. After that, we will look at various other tenant-wide reports, including page-views, and storage metrics.

  10. Allow Admin to delete files from the Preservation Hold Library folder

    In case the big file is deleted (i.e. 1TB) from all recycle bins, it still takes this much space in the Preservation Hold Library folder. It would be great to be able to delete such file/folder at least by Global Admin. Otherwise, when the Retention Policy is set up for several years or never delete, even if the file is deleted there might be no room for the new files on user's OneDrive.

  11. Allow sharepoint to use a vanity domain for the URL rather than tenant.sharepoint.com

    Currently our SharePoint uses tenant.sharepoint.com but I would ideally like this to be changed to intranet.mydomain.com or extranet.mydomain.com. It seems I can't use my vanity domain name for a SharePoint site or have multiple top level sites such as intranet and extranet for different purposes.

  12. Rename the initial tenant domain

    By renaming the incorrect initial tenant domain will save a plenty cost to register new tenant and migrate data. I believe many organizations would like to change the initial domain name such as they've changed the company name. It will be more user-friendly for customer experience.

    Thank you

  14. O365 Nav Bar is always filled with black if you are an External User

    Imagine you have an external user access to a SharePoint Online site, where the Office 365 Nav Bar is filled with wine-red. However, every time you visit to the site as an external user, you may see the Nav Bar as black.

    This happens in all tenants w/o exception while accessing as an external user and there is no way to change the color. This is confusing and frustrating for some customers who are giving special meaning to each site collection's Nav Bar color.

    Please consider and discuss about design change on this.

  15. Provide an ability to disable refresh warning when opening a workbook using Excel Services in SharePoint online

    The warning message "Be careful. This workbook contains one or more queries that might be unsafe. Do you want to enable these queries?" show every time a user opens a workbook with external connection or opens a page with a web part showing that workbook. That is the case even if the external data used in the workbook is located in a list on the same SharePoint site as the workbook. The message is very annoying to users and we need to have an option to disable it. This option already exists for SharePoint Server.

  16. OneDrive for Business client needs to be able to automatically update client when UPN changes

    Scenario, business segments are converging and we need to update 10K users email domains. Our strategy is to keep email and UPN the same so we require to change the UPN from a federated to a federated domain. One drive for bussiness client can not update regkey HKEYCURRENTUSER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\OneDrive\Accounts\Business1 with the new email address. Currently requires either manual edit of regkey or onedrive reconfiguration which would than initiate a full download of all data.

  17. Overview of the SharePoint Online timerjobs

    Currently we have no idea when timerjobs are running for SharePoint Online. For example: Search Indexing and the Content Type Hub. We (system integrators) try to give our customers an estimate for configuring SharePoint Online but are very depended on waiting for these timerjobs to run in the background. It would make our lives, and our customers, a lot easier when we at least have an idea when a timerjob is running.

  18. Allow Users and Admin to subscribe existing group members to group conversations

    When new users are added to SharePoint groups, if the "Subscribe new members" check box is not on, the new members are not automatically subscribed. If the box is later checked, only newly added members are subscribed and existing members are not forcibly subscribed. It would be helpful to be able subscribe/un-subscribe specific or all members of a group after they are already in it.

  19. Change SharePoint Online tenant name

    Due to "technical issues" we cannot change the .onmicrosoft.com tenant name; however, companies change names and merge constantly and instead of migrating from one tenant to another, the only thing that truly needs to be updated is the .sharepoint.com subdomain. A great feature would be to allow a change to this subdomain so that corporate alliances could be reflected with a better subdomain.

  20. Synchronizing of Custom Active Directory Attributes to Custom User Profile Properties in SharePoint Online

    I have a custom solution for this that seems viable (see below), However my client would like to be able to do this OOTB if at all possible. Making this possible through a future iteration of DirSync, or its successors, AADSS, AAD Connect, or some other tool would be helpful. This way we're not required to enter it more than once.

    Custom Approach:

    Thanks for your feedback! Your idea sounds interesting, but we need more information:

    We are certainly thinking about extensible user schema across Office365 suite, and trying to figure out which attribute mappings make sense. We’d love to know more about the scenario you have – Why did your customer chose to use AD custom attributes over User Profile attributes in SharePoint?
