  1. Report showing SharePoint user activity per site collection

    It’s currently possible to get tenant-wide reports from SharePoint for user activity, and for site collection activity, but I need a combination of the two: user activity broken down per site collection.

    Here’s the use case: here at UC Berkeley, most of our SPO users are members of more than one Site Collection. We’ve got a large number of Site Collections we suspect are not being used, or are only being used by a very small number of people.

    However, we can’t confirm that unless we can get a breakdown of which users are using which site collections.

  2. Bring back the old support portal/interface

    The old support portal was easier to submit tickets. Also, I was able to update the tickets easily and even add supporting attachments to existing tickets. It appears that these options have been removed from the updated support interface. This makes the support system less effective as the end users now have difficulty adding supporting information to open tickets. I'm not even seeing the option to add attachments when opening a new ticket.

  3. 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…

  4. Hidden the root site from client Office application.

    If a user signs in with an Office 365 account in a client Office application, it will display [site - tenant name] on [save as] or [open] page.
    In order to prevent the user from accessing the root site from the client, I want to set [site - tenant name] not to be displayed.

  5. Hybrid eDiscovery for SharePoint

    If Microsoft can extend the hybrid search concept to include eDiscovery, all the policies and goverance can be managed more effectiviely and reduces the on-going governance challenges. Currently the eDiscovery is limited to the SharePoint environment and there is no option to aggregate discovery between a Sp2013, Sp2016 and SP Online.

  6. API enhancement for External User Management

    I understand there is currently no API or Powershell way to register external users before using the Add-SPOUser cmdlet to add them to a group. This means that I have a very manual step in a business process. We are looking to use SharePoint Online to securely share content with external business partners. So I have a business process that needs to validate who has access to what content. We are using DocAve Governance Automation as well as K2 business process workflow tooling, both of which utilize the SharePoint Online APIs, but there is no way for them or with…

  9. Modern Site Collection needs to be listed in Admin Portal

    What the heck. is this a disconnect between teams? Seems the Modern sites or site collections are not listed in the SharePoint Admin Portal Site Collection list. I know we can use PS for Get-SPOsite but come on Microsoft. Not every IT Pro are Powershell gurus-please not lecture on you should be. I thought the objective is to make things easier for customers - especially for non developers and IT Pros

    Add Last viewed date in deletion policy


    Microsoft 365 管理センターのセキュリティより削除に関するポリシーを作成し運用中
    削除の基準として現時点の動作では、作成日もしくは最終更新日のみになっています。
    ファイルを編集ではなく最終閲覧日の項目を設けていただくことにより、編集しないファイル (例としてPDFなど)、もしっかり選別でき機能としてより良いものになると存じているため機能の拡張を要望いたします。

    We only have 2 options for deletion policy in Microsoft 365 admin center security, which are Last updated date and Created date. Add Last viewed date in deletion policy so that we can identify the file that is not to be edited, such as PDF file, from any other files.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  11. Allow Admin to pin Custom Apps/tiles to top nav bar/topsuitebar for all tenants.

    Allow Admin to pin Custom Apps/tiles to top nav bar/topsuitebar for all tenants. This helps in creating custom links for multilingual pages(in my case) and top pages that all users visit mostly like approving documents page.

  14. Need the ability to change the SharePoint Online / OneDrive session timeout as low as 30 minutes. Default 5 day timeout is a security risk.

    The business would like to have the session timeout for SharePoint Online/OneDrive for Business configurable. The 5 day session timeout is too long and proposes a security risk. Thanks

  16. Powershell command to add AD groups as site collection administrators (OneDrive)

    It would be nice to have a PowerShell command that would assign an Active Directory group to OneDrive for Business site collection administrators groups. Right now the only way to accomplish this is through the UI. You can assign a single user though PowerShell but not an AD group.

  17. Allow site level anonymous link expiration settings

    Allow site level anonymous link expiration settings. We have some site that host content which we never want to expire, however for OneDrive and most other sites we would like to set an expiration. Moving this setting to the site level would allow us to open up anonymous sharing for our OneDrive users while still having automatic expiration.

  18. Better reporting on shares and permissions on document libraries.

    I would like to see better reporting tools so I can for instance create a report that shows who has what access to what documents/folders etc. within a library or site. This is currently only available via a 3rd party application.

  19. Cannot change tenant name \ O365 Tenant name workaround for sharepoint and onedrive use

    Perhaps, It would be my much better if Microsoft will allow us to create a new Sharepoint Site under our tenant using our verified domain names as a root address or site.

    I can understand that the initial tenant name is very hard to overwrite with a new tenant name as you wish but at least give us some other way to deal with this issue rather than using a tenant name that it doesn't make sense especially if there's a changes on our organization.

    e.q.

    Tenant Name: tenant123.onmicrosoft.com
    Current Site: https://tenant123.sharepoint.com/SitePages/Home.aspx

    But we have a verified domain
    abc.com
    def.com
