  1. Allow users to have multiple signatures in the Outlook Web Application

    It would be nice if a single user could have multiple signatures to select from in the outlook web application and apply a different signature to each email if they desire.

        You can use your own personal email with a personal domain to connect to any type of Office 365 subscription, including Office 365 Home. Office 365 Home relies on a Microsoft account for authentication. A Microsoft account can be created with any personal domain email, it is not required to be Outlook.com/Hotmail.com, etc. Once the Microsoft account is created using your personal email, you can use it to activate and sign into your Office 365 Home subscription.
        If you don’t have a Microsoft account, go to the Microsoft account sign-up page and click on Create account. In the User name box enter your personal domain email address you wish to use. Fill out the rest of the form and click Create account.
        Now you can set up your Office 365 Home subscription with your Microsoft account. This will be the Microsoft account associated with your Office download. If you have…

      • Disable the new AutoSave by default, as it can lead to a loss of data

        The new AutoSave can potentially lead to a loss of data. If you open any Word, PowerPoint, etc. doc, there is an "AutoSave" that is automatically on, on the upper left. If you're changing some stuff around and don't want to save, it still saves it. Or if you delete some things and then save as copy, your original is gone, because AutoSave was on. This is a horrible feature and should be disabled by default.

            (Update from Office engineering) Thank you for voting, we appreciate your feedback. User Voice is an important input we are considering when establishing the product road map. In general, when providing feedback specific for Excel Online, I would recommend using Excel Online UserVoice, where you’ll find the specific feature granularity.

            I would like to use the opportunity to provide update on progress:

            What is already available in production?
            • Find dialog remain open when find item for find next.
            • replace dialog
            • Ability to Freeze Panes

            Please give it a try, we are looking forward to your feedback.

            What is high on our backlog – Impacted by User Voice voting – Keep voting

            • Custom Sort
            • Enable reference to a cell in another sheet by click (In Vlookup as well)
            • Enhanced Print
            • Pivot table

          • Custom installation from Office 365 (2016)

            I need custom installation from Office 365 (2016)!

            I need on some computers only Word & Excel. But I MUST install the complete suite with all other never used apps. This need diskspace, that I will use for other apps.

            Kind Regards,
            Steffen

            • more control of grouping emails

              emails are grouped by date with annoying group headers (today, yesterday, last week, etc.) In outlook you can remove these headings of the groups to make it cleaner. In webmail you can not. Please fix this.

                  • Global Email signatures across platforms

                    When using 365 business it would be great if i could add a unique signature to each user from my admin control panel. that would automatically download to the users platforms such as iPhone, Windows Phone, Outlook office 2013, or Outlook online.
                    A signature which can have hyperlinked images, whilst being individual to each user (for their name and direct line)

                    • FIDO U2F

                      Office 365 for work: We need Office 365 for Work support a FIDO Universal Second Factor (U2F) protocol standard Security Key.

                      As many organisation would like to shift to Office 365 but they concern about the security standard which request Office 365 to support Universal Second Factor (U2F) protocol standard security key as Microsoft is a member of FIDO.

                      So, I wrote this idea to be a feedback request to Office team.

                          We are currently using Office 365 Planner but it lacks capabilities for a ticketing system - cannot issue trouble tickets, issue categorisation and reporting, allow employees to log their own tickets, etc. How about creating a Helpdesk Ticketing System within Office 365?

                          Thanks!

                                When I'm developing an Office 365 app, it should be possible to include the suite bar easily in my application's UX. The App for SharePoint model has this with the "chrome control", but no equivalent currently exists for Office 365 apps - and this means I have to roll my own navigation so that users can exit my app and return to other bits of Office 365. What I want is to integrate the suite bar into my apps - so users can use the waffle to get to the "My apps" page, use their pinned shortcut links to move…

                                  Let people use Skype for Business to communicate with Skype users outside your organization. But, know that your Mac users won't be able to search Skype.

                                  I have customers who are 100% MAC users signing up for skype for business subscription just so that they can add their contacts from external organizations.

                                  can you give us an update when this will be available?

                                  • Ability to upload and use custom fonts

                                    It should be possible to upload and use custom fonts installed on an organisations Office 365 platform. Uploaded documents now look faulty in Excel / Word / PowerPoint etc since the font is not installed.

                                    • Full Shared Mailbox Support, Especially in Mobile (if not, give me extra licenses!)

                                      I am an entrepreneur with highly trained employees that need to be able to wear multiple hats with equal importance for each. The shared mailbox model that Microsoft has setup does not enable my employees sufficiently and although advances have been made, these shared mailboxes are second class citizens. I argued with a Microsoft technical representative for a long time and finally got him to admit that they were. The shared mailboxes have incredibly weak mobile support and support for full functionality in Outlook does not come out-of-the-box with automapping and is tricky to configure by disconnecting the mailboxes through…

                                      • system.structuredquery.virtual.from:

                                        The Search button does not work in French Outlook 2016 Win10-64. When clicking on "De" (= "From") the search input box displays "system.structuredquery.virtual.from:" instead of "De"... The problem does not show-up in English version. This is reported since several weeks (months?) on Microsoft community and other forums. I have not yet met one single user for which the search button works... More details here: https://answers.microsoft.com/fr-fr/msoffice/forum/msoffice_outlook-mso_win10-mso_2016/systemstructuredqueryvirtualfrom-affich%c3%a9/75108ee5-101a-40e5-81ab-ddae3f4de8e9
                                        Many thanks!

                                        • The ability to pick your own colour of the initials in the user pic in outlook web app

                                          The Initials that have replaced the silhouette as the User pic in outlook 365 web app are good but it would be nice to be able to pick you own colour choice.
