  2. Open files which are encrypted by service principal name with Office Online

    Currently, we have to open files on local if the file is encrypted by Service principal name, such as like encrypt with MCAS.
    This limitation is written on the docs below.
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/compliance/sensitivity-labels-sharepoint-onedrive-files?view=o365-worldwide#limitations

    However, to use this function with better experience, I think SPO should support those files to open on local as same as other files.

  3. Allow the use of Custom domains in team site URLs

    Allow the use of Verified Custom domains within the URL string of teamsites rather than just the name used to establish the tenant e.g. "***.onmicrosoft.com"

  6. Allow admins to be able to turn off the Office 365 store and remove it from the app launcher

    We dont want users to be able to add apps to their sites on their own without approval, need a way to turn off the Office 365 app store and remove it from the app launcher. Or at least only allow requests for installation of apps so that they can be reviewed.

  7. read only access to all sharepoint sites collections by default

    We do not have option to grant read only access to all sharepoint site collections by default. We can not go back and add a end user every time we create new collection.It would be great if we have such kind of role on every sharepoint site collection.

  9. Enable CDN for tenants with custom domains assigned

    Allow Office 365 CDN features to work for SharePoint tenants that do not have a custom domain but may have custom domains set for their mail. This is probably effects every enterprise out there using exchange mail but using https://<business>.sharepoint.com as their SharePoint address. Currently CDN does not work if you have a "vanity domain" set for any service in Office 365, even if it is not set on the default domain for SharePoint Online (default configuration).

  10. Ability to Change Username/Domain Without Breaking Shared Links

    Currently, if you change the username or the domain suffix of a username, any previously shared SharePoint/OneDrive links will be broken. There is no way to reshare these items without remembering what you shared and going through the tedious process of resharing each item. This is a major issue for anyone acquiring a new company or changing departments.

    Solution:
    -Don't include the username or a field that is likely to change in the links, use a GUID.

  11. Make SharePoint Online quick launch margin either adjustable width or wrapped text.

    The fixed width of the SharePoint Online quick launch margin is infuriating! Ellipses are no good, please just wrap the text like the classic version does. It's the number one bugbear when we're launching new online sites.

  12. Choose default location of Sharepoint Teams site before new team is created (Education)

    After contacting the Microsoft Customer Support, I post my little demand for the future.

    Before a team site is to be created, I want to choose the location of the Team site. The application doens't have to ask it each time, just an option in the Admin area where we can add the default location where new SharePoint Team sites are created. On this way, our SharePoint will have the structure we want.

    If this is not possible, it would allready be an improvement if 'Teams' start a new site within mycompanyname.sharepoint.com/teams/ and not in mycompanyname.sharepoint.com/sites/.

    Situation where the problem…

  13. Have the ability restrict access to individual SharePoint Online sites (or site collections) to users only connecting when on the corporate

    We have an Office 365 environment which is linked to our on premise ADFS environment. We have started to make some deployments of sites to our SharePoint Online environment. We want to migrate to SharePoint Online if there were a way to make SPO only accessible via users/computers connected to the corporate network (e.g. to a specific IP).

    I understand this approach is currently not available. Are there any plans to implement in the future? I was told that the new OneDrive synch client will accommodate this in the future. Does anyone have information an this feature.

  15. Allow displaying site name in usage report in Microsoft 365 admin center

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):

    Allow displaying site name in usage report in Microsoft 365 admin center


    ■Description(内容):
    現在 Microsoft 365 管理センター内の使用状況にてアクセスの集計を確認しています。
    本機能はサイトの URL 毎にアクセスの集計を確認する事ができ頻繁に利用しています。
    しかしながら、本機能は URL でサイトを判断する必要があり、どのサイトの情報なのかを確認するのに毎回確認が必要です。
    サイト作成時に入力したサイト名の表示が可能になれば、さらなる製品の向上になり、より良い製品として利用が可能であると考え、機能の拡張を要望します。

    We frequently use the usage report in Microsoft 365 admin center to check access count of each site because this feature shows the access count per site URLs. However, since it shows only the site URL, not the site names, we still need to check which URL is presenting which site.
    For improvement of usability, display the site name instead of just URL in the usage report.

  16. Fix SharePoint list feature "Save list as template" so that a template can be saved without content when list size exceeds limit.

    List settings provides the capability to save a list template, with or without content. Currently, this option fails when a list exceeds 5000 items, even if content is not requested. This makes no sense, and ought to be considered a bug. This bug makes it difficult to re-create the list in a test environment - for example, to explore options to operate within the ridiculous 5000 item limit.

  19. Access Permission on Sharepoint

    The View-Only permission option on Sharepoint is still allowing users to download the document. Its not working as described. It says there that the external users won't be able to download the file BUT the external users are still able to download it after enabling the feature. Kindly check on that feature and provide a permanent fix. Thanks!
