  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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

  6. I want to change the ProxyAddress

    I want to change the ProxyAddress


    ■Description(内容):
    Exchange Online の [連絡先] に外部ユーザーのメール アドレスが登録されている場合、"勤務先の電子メール アドレス" が空欄となり、SharePoint からの通知が届かなくなり、別途 "勤務先の電子メール アドレス" の登録が必要となる。
    また、 連絡先に登録をする際に、重複のエラーとなる場合がある。
    ゲストユーザーの ProxyAddress を変更する手段として、一度ゲストユーザーを削除して、ProxyAddress を重複しないように作成するコマンドを実行することで対応しているが、その場合は
    ProxyAddress を登録することができれば SharePoint からの通知が届かなくなる。
    ProxyAddress を変更することで問題は解消できると考えている。
    ProxyAddress を変更する機能の実装を希望します。

    In cases where the mail addresses of external users are registered in the “Contacts” on Exchange Online, “Work email address” becomes blank, notifications from SharePoint are not delivered, and one needs to register the “Work email address” item separately.
    Also, when registering the contact details, there are cases where a number of overlapping errors occur.
    In order to change the ProxyAddress…

  7. Search Existing Group Files for Attachments in SharePoint/Microsoft Lists

    Please enable the ability to search files within the Group as well as upload from ones computer when adding attachments to SharePoint/Microsoft Lists. Currently users are left with the option to either upload a file to the Attachments field from File Explorer or copy and paste a link from a Document in the SharePoint library in a separate Link field.
    This feature has been added to Microsoft Planner, as an example, and works very nicely in Planner Online and within Teams.

  9. Allow .swf (Shock Wave Flash) files to be played on click in sharepoint without downloading a separate instance

    A PPT is converted into a .swf file with audio capabilities and stored in sharepoint - once a user or a trainee clicks on this file or a link - the file should just play rather than creating an instance for the user to download the file then open it from his local drive.

  10. SharePoint audit log is incomplete: Search-UnifiedAuditLog

    When auditing the feature 'Secure Links' (Operation = AddedToSecureLink) with the PowerShell cmdlet "Search-UnifiedAuditLog", the audit data returned is incomplete if the link is sent to multiple external users at the same time.
    In those cases the data only contains the first external user to whom it was sent.
    It concerns the field "AuditData", with JSON property "TargetUserOrGroupName".

    Due to that, it is not possible to properly audit access given.

  12. Be able to drag and drop files between Library's on SharePoint online.

    If you use meta data, and not folders in document libraries it is virtually impossible to move files from one library to another because you can’t drag and drop files from a grouped view. If you go to Windows Explorer View you can’t find files because they are arranged with meta data in Libraries. The ONLY way to do this is to individually download locally and then upload to different Library. Ridiculous and very time consuming.

  13. Site mail box created with incorrect domain

    When creating a site mailbox, the site mailbox e-mail address uses the domain that is the first listed of registered domains on the tenant. The list is in alphabetical order, and therefore you have no control over which e-mail domain will be selected. You can correct it by renaming after creation, but a mail has already been sent out with incorrect e-mail address

  14. Fix columns / rows of a site collection while scrolling

    It would be very helpful if it would be possible to fix the header or a column of a SiteCollection so that they continue to be displayed when scrolling horizontally or vertically in order to keep the overview.

  15. Enable Split View in SharePoint Admin Center to distiguish PWA-Site from Site Collections at a glance

    It’s much more comfortable to identify all Site Collections with PWA Feature using such a split view than checking all existing Site Collections using “Project Web App”. This view existed in a previous Online Version (see Brian Smith Blog http://blogs.msdn.com/b/brismith/archive/2012/12/11/project-online-how-do-i-re-use-an-unwanted-pwa-instance.aspx) and was totally removed from SharePoint Admin Center :-(

  16. Audit Shared Folders and Links in Sharepoint

    It would be nice to have a report that would let me know exactly what files and folders are shared with users, and what links for specific files and folders are being actively shared. If I need to audit the shared information I do not want to have to search through every share point directory to find my results.

    I would only care about the shared root folder. Not the inherited folders/files that come with it.
