  2. 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.

  4. 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.

  6. GCC-HIGH Sharing options Outside tenants

    Currently, OneDrive and Sharepoint within GCC High only allows sharing with other GCC High tenant users. It is however possible to "share a link" and allow anyone with the link access to the file. There is no secure way to share a file outside the GCC High environment. This runs counter to proper security protocols by allowing everyone or nobody. This policy should be aligned with O365 to share with link validation, in the interest of security and data protection.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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…

  13. Branding automated emails

    When i invite an external to my document they recieve an email with the invite from Von: Microsoft Online Services Team [mailto:msonlineservicesteam@email.microsoftonline.com] , the email cannot be branded by the company and the MS address is in there. Microsoft Office
    One Microsoft Way
    Redmond, WA
    98052-6399 USA
    According to your support desk i am not able to change the template of this email which I believe is incorrect. This is correspondence to potential customers, partners etc and should be decently provided.

  14. 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.

  16. Allow admins to disable SharePoint Designer access on modern sites/site collections

    The SharePoint Designer options are gone from Site Settings, and either manual navigation to the page or changing the property via CSOM results in Access Denied - even with Global Admin & explicit Site Collection Admin.

  17. 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.

  20. 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
