  2. Allow customized themes be created

    Allow users to edit themes. Colourful theme is too distracting and the background colour around the page in word is too bright, white theme is too bright and dark themes are visually impossible to use. I've asked IT to revert my PC to Office 2013 as this is giving me a headache after 1 day.

  3. Skype for business screen share with regular skype

    Extremely disappointed to learn skype for business can't share screen with regular Skype users. Option is offered for regular free skype, so why a premium paid service would restrict it is puzzling and very disturbing. Seriously consider going back to google for business app.

  4. Have permissions in Yammer to stop people from creating new groups.

    Have permissions in Yammer to stop people from creating new groups, whilst Yammer is great for collaboration, there is a need to better permissions to better manage users and content.

  5. expand dynamic group in OWA/Outlook

    Currently we can only expand the members of a dynamic group from the Powershell, however it's very important that the senders know who was included in a Dynamic Distribution Group from OWA or Outlook.

  6. Microsoft Forms

    There is currently no way to set a custom recipient to receive the response report emails in Forms. I would like someone other than the creator of the form to receive the email notification when a response is filled out.

  8. Display a Company Field

    User can see [Title] and [Office] field from the People of Outlook on the Web.
    But currently [Company] field is not displayed in the contact list.

    It would be a manageable function that User can modify displayed fields in the Contact list.

  9. Export Contacts of Shared Mailbox

    User can access to Shared Mailbox by Outlook on the Web if he/she has full access permission of Shared Mailbox.
    In the Shared Mailbox, User can also access to the People.

    There is an unexpected behavior when user tries to export contacts of Shared Mailbox.
    The exported CSV files is a list of the User's contacts.
    Currently it is not possible to export Shared Mailbox's contacts by Outlook on the Web.

    It would be better experience for Users that they can export Shared Mailbox's Contacts.

  10. Teams camera filter

    During these tough times many companies make use of homeoffice and Teams to keep connected and having virtual meetings. Homeoffice mainly leads that people wear cozy clothes or do not put make-up on. A camera filter would be the perfect solution and create fun such as Instagram or Snapchat offers!

  11. Need a prompt or notification for MFA-registered users when the admin bulk update users from “Enforced” to “Enabled” in MFA user configurat

    Need a prompt or notification for MFA-registered users when the admin bulk update users from “Enforced” to “Enabled” in MFA user configuration page so that admins would not change Enforced status for MFA-registered users.

    Currently, when admin mistakenly bulk change from "Enforced" to "Enabled" in MFA user setting page, there are no any prompt to alert admin for MFA-enabled users. And Enforced status cannot be changed back automatically for already MFA-registered users.

    Per testing, if admin changed the Enforced to Enabled by the "bulk update" in MFA page, even the end user changed the phone numbers of MFA via “Additional…

  12. MS Teams more control over visibility

    There is no granular control of visibility depending on internal / external contacts. But it would be important to have for an external the status dont disdurb but for an internal to be available.

    When reading an email with Office 365 on Android, a read receipt is sent to the sender. THIS IS ABSURD! Please fix this issue. Yes, issue.

  15. Correct spelling for 'Canceled' for users who use English (United Kingdom)

    When a user cancels a meeting on Outlook Calendar please allow users whose language settings are set to English (United Kingdom) to send out the meeting cancellation request with the heading 'Cancelled" and not "Canceled'!

    Kind regards,

    Hosni

  17. Add an option that an Office 365 Group member who sends email to the group can receive that email in their individual inbox

    When debugging production issues as a team, it is useful to see in the inbox all the e-mails in the conversation, whether sent by the author or other members, it is a quick reassurance of the order of e-mails and confirmation that an e-mail was sent to the group and not stuck in an Outbox or sent incorrectly.

    This had been the default Office365 Group functionality until recently (and it continues to be the behavior of Distribution Groups). Then Feature ID: 76175 was implemented which removed this functionality from all Office 365 groups and users platform wide.

    My proposal is…

  18. Microsoft Sharepoint Online admin should have an ability to modify the default 93 days retention period

    By default, we have 90 days retention period for deleted files in Sharepoint Site (including OneDrive for Business) in the recycle bin which cannot be changed. It should be the consumer / admin who should decide for the retention period. This also concerns the customer as the recycle bin consumes storage as well.

  20. Name pronunciation on office 365 profile

    Working within a global organisation can often cause language and culture challenges. One specific one we face is how to pronounce colleagues names correctly which is important when we want to create a culture of respect. It'd be amazing if there was the ability within the Office 365 profile for individuals to record a pronunciation of their name for others to listen too and learn from. If this was supported with other pronunciation guides too that would be even better - although I realise this could be difficult from a multilingual perspective.
