  • Minimum Versioning Coming Soon to SharePoint Online & OneDrive for Business Libraries

    Posted on August 16th, 2018 at 23:21 Kirsty Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    Modified in Office 365 Roadmap on August 14, 2018:

    Versioning settings in OneDrive for Business, Groups and team sites in SharePoint Online
    All SharePoint and OneDrive libraries will be set to retain a minimum of one hundred major versions. Existing libraries that have versioning enabled but are set to retain fewer than one hundred major versions will be updated to retain the new minimum. Libraries already set to retain one hundred or more major versions will not be affected, including those with the default setting of five hundred. With these changes, the Document Library Settings page will no longer support the ability to disable versioning or configure it to retain fewer than one hundred versions.

    Again, there are reports of customers pushing back on Microsoft’s changes, and Microsoft have advised that organisations will be able to avoid this change on “Office 365 Tenants”, if they act before September 30th – “Otherwise, we will roll out the versioning setting update to your tenant in October 2018.”. This workaround involves a SharePoint Online Management Shell cmdlet, using version 16.0.7918.1200 or better.
