  2. Enable customers to confirm contents of support tickets on Office365 Admin portal

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    サポート チケットの内容を管理画面から見れるようにしてほしい

    Enable customers to confirm contents of support tickets on Office365 Admin portal


    ■Description(内容):
    過去に問い合わせをしたサポートチケットの内容をチケットが終了のステータスになった場合でも以前のUIと同じように内容を確認できるようにしてほしい

    In the current Office365 Admin portal, we are no longer available to see the contents of old support tickets. It would be great if we could confirm the contents of our old tickets even though the ticket status was closed, like the old support portal.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  3. Provide a way to identity News Posts/Links vs Site Pages

    News posts/links and site pages are both stored in the Site Pages Library. It is impossible to tell if an aspx file in that library is a news post/link or a site page. This makes it difficult to manage your news posts/links. I see a number of solutions possible.


    1. Save News posts/links to a separate library

    2. Make news posts/links a different content type. Currently "Site Page"

    3. Use some other additional metadata field to indicate that the file is a news post/link.

    The reason this is an issue is because the News web part filters out files that are created as…

  6. Help Desk card should not require any specific license to work

    the new help desk card requires an exchange o365 licenses/mailbox to be visible to a user. Not everyone uses exchange and no specific service should be required for this to work. It should just work across all services and features.

  7. Include 'Recycle Bin' in storage metrics Sharepoint Admin.

    As the Recycle Bin (stage 1) counts towards your Sharepoint Storage Quota it should be included in Storage Metrics.

  8. Change "List View Threshold" for a tenant seperately

    Currently we cannot change the List View Threshold for a tenant separately. It would be good if we can change the LVT for our tenant alone.

  9. Alert Notification Formatting

    It's disappointing to see that the formatting for alerts has now been changed. The old formatting was very easy to read and had nice formatting, the new layout is horrible, messages arrive with basic hyperlinks and little or no content and are laid out in a very basic text format. You should either provide an option to revert to the old layout or add a feature to enable the admins to create their own formatting

  10. Allow for the "Following" feed to be used in Yammer embed

    The Yammer "All Company" feed to far too bloated to be useful. I get the "Discovery" feed and all, but I can't choose that from the Yammer Embed configuration settings. What would be really nice is the ability to have the yammer embed feed be set to either the "Discovery" feed or the "Following" feed so users can actually see relevant content without it being drowned out by things not relevant to them.

  11. Sharepoint: Disable auto checking "share everything in this folder, even items with unique permissions"

    Sharepoint Online: Please disable auto checking "share everything in this folder, even items with unique permissions" when providing people with access. It's often forgotten to uncheck it and that causes unwanted access to items with unique permissions.

  12. SharePoint Storage Quota alerts for POR

    As a Partner of Record I want to know when any of my clients are getting close to using all of their storage for a SharePoint site collection. Partners should automatically receive the storage quota alerts (just like the billing alerts).

  13. Making all hyperlinks blue and underlined or buttons

    The new Sharepoint look and feel would benefit greatly by making all hyperlinks blue and underlined, or buttons. It is so hard for users in our organization to navigate Sharepoint because half of the links in Sharepoint look like black headers or match the rest of the gray text that is not clickable. So much training has to happen over and over again because of this. I am a technically savvy person. I also work on the UI for our organization's website so I like to think I somewhat know what I'm talking about as I have researched the subject…

  14. Sharepoint Additional Storage

    It would be great if unused Users storage from the users personal 1TB storage would be added to the Sharepoint global storage. This would enable admins to allocate a quota for users and the remaining quote will be transferred on Sharepoint.

    Please allow custom SharePoint Online urls. It is sometimes very much important to have a friendly url for SharePoint within the organization. Currently custom DNS is not support example change .sharepoint.com to /[companyname].com

  17. Teams and SharePoint - Sharing Policy has been changed

    Teams, SharePoint - Sharing Policy has been changed
    Please allow customization of the policy "Sharing Policy has been changed" in the Office 365 Security & Compliance center Alert policies to specify where in O365 you would like to monitor.

    We are getting false flags when someone creates a private Teams channel, as it will flag an alert. Since we have our SharePoint sites set to not share to external users, this looks like a user without permissions is able to change a site to share externally. It somehow enables "AllowGuestUserSignIn".

    To replicate this alert, go here https://protection.office.com/alertpolicies then turn on…

  18. Fix Delegated Admin permissions for SharePoint

    When using a Delegated Admin account that's been granted site collection admin rights from SharePoint Admin > Owners > Add Support Partner > Add "Foreign Principal for 'MSFT Partner' in Role 'TenantAdmins' (Tenant Name)" the delegated admin gets numerous permission errors when administrating the site at the site settings level. They're intermittent too, sometimes you're able to perform an action (like editing permissions for the site) and sometimes you're not. It happens enough where our support team has started avoiding using their Delegated Admin accounts entirely and instead sets up generic admin accounts in the O365 Admin center... defeating the…

  19. New Sharepoint.aspx page

    The new SharePoint.aspx page that replaced sites.aspx page does not allow for customization. The previous sites page we had added a promoted link to the homepage of our Intranet. Now that our tenant was upgraded folks did not see the promoted link and were not happy. Currently the only way to address the issue is to add a custom App launcher tile. So please allow us admin to at least have a web part zone at the top of the sharepoint.aspx page.
