  1. Graph API to get ULS Log entry by correlation ID

    On-Premise we could go to the SP server and lookup the log by the correlation ID that shows whenever there is an error.
    Turns out, even the support engineers have no access to this information.
    It will be helpful to have some API service to find out the error description.

  3. Allow user to add O365 group members without having to wait for the user list to load

    We have 3000+ users in our tenant. When I go to add an owner or member to an O365 group using the admin center, I have to wait for the user list to load before I can search and add someone to the list. This is despite the fact that when the page first loads, I am allowed to search for a user and select him or her. I just can't add this user after clicking Add. This behavior changed recently, as I never used to have to wait the 20 or 30 seconds for the list of users to…

  5. Set a webpage of Sharepoint like Home Page

    After loggin, the users open/watch a WebPage of SharePoint directly

    So they can read the last news of the organization, dates (Calendar), etc...

    Jorge Gallego

  6. Location of mobile devices within Sharepoint admin centres. MDM policies deployed but can't see locations of lost or stolen devices.

    Location of mobile devices within Sharepoint admin centres. MDM policies deployed but can't see locations of lost or stolen devices. We can do all of the remote wipe and factory reset but understanding where the devices are is vital to our business. Currently we have to use google and location sharing. Which takes a substantial amount of manual configuration. All of my workers are mobile across a wide geographic area

  8. Possibility to change the Hub Page

    Please make it possible to change the Hub Page.
    It would be great to change the default hub page with our homepage in Sharepoint. So that users can only see the home page or the page we want them to see.

  9. List down all the permissions for one user (actual count is 5k+) across the SPO Tenant

    We should have an option to list down all the permissions for a particular user (actual count is 5k+) across the SPO Tenant. Currently the CSOM approach takes lot of time to execute throughout the tenant.
    Rather we should have some API exposed (like Office 365 Management API) or graph API should provide this info for all the legacy sites as well.

  11. Allow team members to externally share folders and files... but not allow them to delete them.

    It is not possible for Team Members to externally share folders and files, while making sure they are not able to delete or affect the folders. It is important for us to have our teams access all files and share documents with outside customers... but I do not want to give them the ability to delete these core folders. The only way to externally share folders, is to also have the delete function enabled.

  12. Small businesses cannot afford the PowerBi licensing to build apps

    Many small companies have joined O365. We discuss how they can build out SharePoint solutions specific to their organizations and to create APPS for their customers. For small companies this is very practical.

    However, when they want a nice dashboard with PowerBi feature sets then the application becomes too expensive.

    Now the business has a build vs buy decision. In almost all cases, a small business is forced to buy OOTB rather than spend with Microsoft.

    Please consider a PowerBi Lite solution for small businesses. This will allow them to start small and bring their entire business onto the O365…

  13. Manage individual users to groups in addition to Groups to users

    Right now you can only manage users access by going into the SharePoint groups and adding and removing people. This is very cumbersome when you have a large number of people in a group and have to go through the list page by page to find people in the middle, or when you have a person in many different groups due to the sensitivity of various areas in your site.

    So with that in mind it would be great to manage not only the people in groups within the groups, but also to manage the groups that a person who…

  14. Make it an option to get notifications for shared files sent with "Anyone with the link"

    When sharing files/folders set to "Anyone with the link" users do not get email notification when the files are accessed or downloaded. This is because of it being anonymous. Give an option to request notification. This is necessary as UserA sends link to ClientA. It is possible ClientA forwards to PersonB. UserA needs to know that both ClientA and PersonB are accessing the files.

  16. power bi sharepoint report import

    It would be necessary that the same import from a data source (or several origins) can be used for more than one report

    Especially for those small companies that publish the reports by WEB (all the pages are shown) and by cost they can not invest in PowerBI pro licenses, to integrate in sharepoint as an object and specify by office user which pages can be viewed.

    As it works now, it is necessary to carry out as many imports (and reports) as we have profiles

  17. Allow SharePoint Term Store administration without more widely permissive SharePoint Admin role

    Currently, in order for a SharePoint Term Store Administrator to access the tenant level Term Store, they also need to be a SharePoint Admin. The SharePoint Admin role allows for the ability to create and remove O365 Groups and also to give themselves access to user OneDrives and any Site Collection.

    The person who manages our organizational taxonomy is not someone that should have these other privileges. Please modify the Term Store Admin role to get access to just that part of the SharePoint admin console without the broader access the the SharePoint admin role provides.

  20. Remove access for all users being able to create new SPO Sites

    by default all users are able to create new SPO Teams or Communication sites. It would be great to be able to limit this to a group of users and have the button removed for the users who aren't part of that group.
