  1. 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,…

  2. 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…

  3. 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.

  5. 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…

  6. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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…

  12. Provide feature for Copying user's OneDrive for Business data to another OneDrive for Business account

    My idea is that there should be a feature in Admin console so that Admin can easily copy OneDrive for Business data from one account to another.
    It can cater the following scenario:


    1. If somebody left the organization and Admin has to delete/reduce the Office 365 license then data backup will be easily done within few clicks. It saves time of downloading the data into local machine and then again upload it back to the cloud.


    2. If a user has shared data through OneDrive for Business with external vendors and worried about data deletion. In that case Admin can take…

  13. 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.

  15. 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

  16. 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.

  18. 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…

    Create SharePoint Administrator Reader role which is similar to Global Reader role, but for SharePoint only. This would allow a wider access to SharePoint Admin center than currently can be done, as existing SharePoint Administrator role allows to make changes.

  20. 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…
