  1. Updates in SharePoint are overwritten during collaboration

    The issue occurs when multiple users are collaborating on a file and one (or more) user is disconnected from the internet. Once the user is reconnected, the user either saves an updated version (i.e., updates to the previously opened version) or saves (or auto-saves) the previous version. This will overwrite any updates made by other user(s) while the user was disconnected.

    Here’s an example that outlines the scenario:


    1. User 1 opens the file and views current version A.


    2. User 2 opens the same file and views current version A.


    3. User 2’s internet is disconnected while viewing version A (e.g., due…

  3. Make it possible to get error messages from a correlation id

    PLEASE - if we get a error on SharePoint Online we get a correlation ID. It i VERY important that we can read the error from the logfiles. Otherwise we do not have a chance to find out whats wrong. This is realy bad service fra Microsoft!!!! I have tried to grant a ticket, but the answer is just that it is internal data, and we can not get the information............. WHAT......... its just an description of an error. Get ral Microsoft and let ud get a chance to do our job.

  4. Allow adding another domain for new Sharepoint Site Collection within one tenant

    If an Organization (Customer) has more Companies placed around the world they may have work processes and requirements separately for each. Therefore they may require to use Sharepoint for each Company separately with own URL/domain. It has simple solution to create new tenant. But if they are using and have active licenses of Academic or Non-profit type it may causes problems to build new tenant. Also there may be another requirements to share Calendars of users between more Companies stored in current tenant. In the past there can be used Public Website with Subsite (with canceled inheriting permissions) for it.…

  5. SharePoint Share/Copy Links Allowing "People with existing access" To Be Set As Default Option

    For SharePoint Share/Copy Links, Please Allow "People with existing access" To Be Set As Default Option.

    I believe this option would need to be made available in https://<tenent)-admin.sharepoint.com > Site Collections > select your site collection > Sharing > under "Default link type", UNcheck "Respect default organization setting (Internal)".

    Thanks

  6. To enable the admins to change the From email when sharing a file or site.

    At the moment i have understood a change is ongoing. When a user shares anything on SharePoint online the receiver will see the users name but the email address is no-reply@sharepointonline.com. This ends up nowhere. the admins are not allowed to change this email address. Or the email address should just be the one from the user itself.

  7. Allow changing locale of the SharePoint Admin Center itself so user profile form date fields are appropriate format (dd/mm/yyyy)

    The Hire Date field in user profiles displays as mm/dd/yyyy because the locale is set to US. This causes a lot of confusion and incorrect data being entered. At the moment the locale of the Admin Center cannot be changed via the UI or PowerShell.

  8. Make a delve web part

    A overview of the organization chart in a web part of sharepoint online is great to have. Could you make a web part (based on Delve or not) that will show the full org chart of the company? (There is already one using Silverlight, but as Silverlight is end of life, we can't use it on new browser anymore).

  9. Customise Access denied pages

    if a user doesn't have access to a SharePointOnline Subsite or site collection it would be nice if we could customise the access denied page with our own content and branding, instead of the default Microsoft white page with a box.

  10. ADFS login page redirect

    From our internet site, we send clients to our SharePoint Extranet site which is a site collection within our Office 365 tenant. The users are directed properly to https://ourtenant.sharepoint.com/sites/extranet however, if they click the back button, they are sent to the root site collection homepage at https://ourtenant.sharepoint.com.

  11. Add “Disable automatic workflow cleanup" options for Sharepoint Online Admins

    “Disable automatic workflow cleanup" is an option automatically enabled on Sharepoint On-Premise & Online which deletes the workflow history if a task is completed/canceled after 60 days.
    In Sharepoint on-premise this option can be managed and disabled, in Sharepoint online is enabled and can't be managed or disable. This performance measure can affect worklow status history . I consider necesary this option to be customized by Admins and not only in backend by office365. Thakns and I hope you support my idea. For those who faced this issue will know what I'm talking about.

  13. Unmanaged Devices setting - allow full acces to only some SharePoint sites and restrict access on new sites

    Currently in the Unmanaged devices setting in the SharePoint Admin portal you can allow full access, limited access or no access to all sites from unmanaged devices.

    If you wish to give full access to just a few of your site collections and restrict access on all the rest you need to allow full access, then use PowerShell to restrict access on all sites and use PowerShell again to allow full access to a particular site collection.

    The problem is everytime a new site collection is created you need to run PowerShell again on each new site to restrict it.…

  14. Problem Pushing User Images from AD all the way to SharePoint

    Want to sychronise staff photos from AD into SharePoint Online automatically and prevent user from changing their photo in SharePointOnline. Told by microsoft this isn't possible and that the user must manually remove the photo from their profile in order for AD to synchronise, this is not a great experience, we also don't want users to upload their own photos as we want to portray a professional image using own inhouse photos. if we can sync from AD to exchange online automatically why not to SharePoint Online?

  15. Manage permissions / Access based on AD-Groups instead of individual users

    Please Make it possible to magage Admin permissions or Access to Tools based on azure ad Groups instead of individual users. This is important to create a proper user lifecycle and increase our security level.

    If permissions are granted based on individual users instead of Groups, there is a danger that permissions are not being deprovisioned when a user changes his Team, especially when permissions are being managed at so many places as it is at the Moment (O365 Admin Center, Yammer, Security & Compliance Center, Compliance Manager...)

    If permissions are granted for a Group, you just have to remove/add…

  16. Customized Help Desk Card should show IT Support Info only

    When following the description here (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/office365/admin/misc/customize-help-desk?WT.mc_id=365AdminCSH&view=o365-worldwide), custom Help Desk Card entries are still put on the very bottom of Office 365 / SharePoint Help Card. We'd like to be able to set - as an IT Admin - our organizations Help Desk Card globally to our internal Servicedesk Information only, without all that additional infos and links popping up in the help section before showing our users our individual Servicedesk Contact Infos.
    Thanks!

  17. Features to detect and check workflow errors

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    ワークフローのエラーを検知、確認する機能
    Features to detect and check workflow errors


    ■Description(内容):
    ワークフローで予期せぬエラーが発生した際、実行結果からエラーを確認することになります。
    実行毎に当該ワークフローからエラーを確認するのでなく、ワークフローのエラーを検知および確認ができる機能の拡充を希望します。
    ワークフローで事象が発生した際、事象の改善確認を行う場合などにおいて当該ワークフローの再実行が必要となり、本番環境に影響が及ぶため、ワークフローを実行せずともエラーを検知するような機能が実装されると利便性の向上が期待できます。
    When unexpected errors occur in workflow, users need to find the execution results to check for errors.
    We hope that features to detect and check workflow errors can be implemented instead of having to check the errors from the relevant workflow on every execution.
    When something happens in workflow, the relevant workflow needs to be executed again when confirming that the situation has improved etc, which affects the production environment. Therefore if a feature that can detect errors without executing the workflow is implemented,…

  18. SharePoint Online Audit Report Log - Content Viewing

    This service really needs to come back the environment. I opened a ticket because I was receiving messages that this was broken - not knowing that it was not in service. Someone else in my environment was able to pull the same report with any problems. (Not sure what is going on there)
    This feature gives us an and ideal report of content usage and view events for that is consider very important to where an end user is viewing content on our sites.

    I am using a combination of reports- when I should or could just pull one report…

  19. Allow a company to change the no-reply@sharepointonline.com to something similar to no-reply@<companyname>.com

    Allow a company to change the no-reply@sharepointonline.com to something similar to no-reply@<companyname>.com. This allows for a more specific whitelisting/trusting and prevent legitimate SharePoint share requests from being quarantined. Currently the only option is to create a transport rule to bypass spam filtering for all no-reply@sharepointonline.com (according to Microsoft ticket).

  20. Idle Session Timeout in SharePoint - allow per site collection settings

    Update the newer Set-SPOBrowserIdleSignOut PowerShell command introduced by Bill Baer in https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/wbaer/2017/10/23/introducing-idle-session-timeout-in-sharepoint-and-onedrive-coming-to-preview/ to include an optional parameter for choosing specific site collections to change the idle session timeout setting.

    This would be extremely helpful in larger organizations where some site collections have very different levels of secure/confidential content than others.
