  1. Enable Shared Computer Activation combined with roaming profiles.

    We would like to be able to change the SCA token location to the roaming part of the userprofile.

    At this moment, when using SCA, a licensing token is stored on the server in the user's local part of the profile folder. When using multiple servers (for example with Terminal Servers or when using Citrix), users have to sign on multiple times: Once for every server they log on to for the first time. In special cases, like ours, some company's even delete the local profile when the user logs off. That user would, in our case, then be using…

  2. Microsoft Bookings, Allow Hybrid Exchange to be admin/viewer

    In a hybrid Exchange environment, Microsoft Bookings doesn't allow on-prem mailboxes to be admin/viewer, it needs to have an Exchange online mailbox to be admin.

    We need it to allow on-prem users to be admin/viewer and not limited to just be Exchange online mailboxes.

    Note: We are on the same domain.

  3. Allow customisations of the users contact card.

    Allow customisations of the users initials that show instead of user photos on the contact card. We should be able to administer colours for users and decide the way initials are read. Mine currently are back to front.

  6. Allow customization of the Outlook Profile Card

    The Outlook Profile cards (https://support.office.com/en-gb/article/profile-cards-in-office-365-e80f931f-5fc4-4a59-ba6e-c1e35a85b501) got a dramatic update in the July 10 Semi-Annual release. It would be great if there was a way to customize what data is visible on the main hover window, specifically to see the "Away (15 minutes)" information.

    I can see this being implemented as a local XML file, a GPO, or an administrative setting.

  7. Allow more control over Audience complilation

    In SharePoint Online Audiences only compile on a weekly basis (on a Saturday as I understand it). This is not often enough, especially for new starters who start on a Monday who may have to wait a week until audience-targeted content is displaying correctly for them. This should run daily and admins should be able to force an audience compilation via the admin UI as we can in the on-premises version of SharePoint.

  8. Change Initials to correspond with First name Last Name

    Our GAL is lastname, firstname (which is a fairly standard practice). The initials should display first initial then last initial. For example, John Smith and Smith,John initials should be JS in both cases, instead of SJ which is backwards.

  9. SharePoint Online - Filtering User Profiles based on custom AAD attributes

    We have a requirement to filter certain set of users in SP Online based on the User’s Azure AD Attribute. I understand we can filter out the users from syncing to AAD using AD Connect tool but we have a need to keep those user objects in AAD but filter it from showing it in SP Online Features like Org Chart, People Search, etc. Let me know if it is possible to make the possible design changes in SP Online. 1. Based on the below MS Article, AD Import Job takes care of importing the users from AAD To SP…

  10. Stop creating birthday events on contact creation

    When a contact is created or moved between folders, a recurring all-day event is created in the birthday calendar and the default calendar. Please stop that or make it at least configurable.

  11. multiple signatures

    It would be nice if Outlook 365 allowed you to select default signatures to apply to EACH email account the person is using. Many people have multiple email accounts, and it is time consuming and leaves a lot of room for error when you have to select or change the signature each time you use a different account. Apple allows you to do this, Microsoft should also work that into its Outlook software.

  12. Allow Copy and Paste function from Personal Calendar to Office 365 Group calendar in OWA and Outlook (2016+)

    Currently users have the ability to create new entries in the Office 365 group calendar in both Outlook desktop client and Outlook on the Web (OWA).

    You are able to copy that same entry from the Office 365 group calendar your personal Calendar via 'Drag & Drop' or 'Ctrl+C'-->'Ctrl+V' on that entry via the Outlook desktop client.

    You are unable to copy and paste a calendar event from your personal calendar to the Office 365 Group Calendar via any of the mentioned methods. You will be met with the following message:

    "Cannot copy the items. you don't have appropriate permission…

  13. UPN変更に伴う Teams 個人チャットの共有リンクについて (About shared link of Teams personal chat accompanying UPN change)

    現状では、UPN を変更すると OneDrive の URL は自動的に切り替わるが、Microsoft Teams の個人チャットで共有したファイルのリンクが古いままとなり、ファイルにアクセスできません。

    今まで Teams の個人チャットでファイルを共有する運用をしていたが、突然一斉にファイルにアクセスできなくなると、業務上のインパクトが非常に大きいため、UPN が変更されても Microsoft Teams の個人チャットで共有したファイルに引き続きアクセスできる機能の追加を強く要望します。

    Currently, changing the UPN automatically switches the OneDrive URL, but the file link shared with Microsoft Teams personal chat remains stale and you can not access the file.

    So far, files have been shared using Teams' personal chats, but if you can not access files all at once, the business impact is huge, so even if the UPN changes, you can use Microsoft Teams's personal chats. We urge you to add features that allow you to continue to access shared files.

  14. Allow Skype For Business to import contacts from Skype (Free version)

    We moved to Office 365 recently and still my users are not using Skype For Business because all their existing contacts are in normal Skype. We are not able to find an option to export/ Import the contacts to Skype For Business, and each users have 50+ contacts in their existing Skype so its not possible to add each contact manually. We should have an option to import contacts from normal Skype

  15. I would like to see a way to add more than 5 users to Office 365 Home

    It would be nice to be able to add more than 5 users to an Office 365 Home account, maybe by paying a little extra for users over 5. I have a family of 6 and I would like to be able to give them all a share but I sure don't want to pay $69.00 a year more when I am already paying $99.00. This would be quite helpful for larger families.

  16. Improve the feature to notate the Inquiry details and Titles in the replied email of the modern support.

    In the modern support, I hope the feature will be improved to notate the details of inquiry and titles in the replied email when creating the case from the modern support. It will help the user to understand the summary easily.
