  1. Linux support

    I will in the future use both Linux and Windows pc at work. The lack of real linuxsupport is a problem. Please support LInux in onedrive/sharepoint.
    Hopefully also a office 365 package for linux would help

  2. Request Exchange hybrid key for Exchange Server 2019 activation with Hybrid Configuration Wizard (HCW)

    Actually it is not possible to obtain a free Exchange Server 2019 activation with a hybrid key. For earlier Exchange Versions this works trough HCW, but not with Exchange 2019: "Please note that HCW does not provide a 'hybrid key' for Exchange Server 2019. If you need a hybrid key, the latest version that it is available for is Exchange Server 2016."

    This is not customer friendly at all - so please add Exchange 2019 to this feature.

  3. Allow Teams VTC Instructions to be editable

    Allow Teams VTC Instructions to be editable by the Administrator. currently the text that is shown on Teams Meetings is hard coded by Microsoft. This should accept the ability to use HTML to change the wording, and instructions to be more clear for individual company needs

  4. Disabling of Basic Authentication in 2020 - whats the alternatives?

    Hello
    I have noted that end of 2020 basic authentication will be disabled for exchange online. (i had raised a ticket with o365 support - who recommended i post in here..).
    So, what are the alternative options apart from using the stupid app for ios or android?
    We use a 3rd party MDM solution which is better than intune. We do not use Azure P1 or P2 either, plus we disable OWA and block users adding email accounts elsewhere.
    Ideas?

  6. Offer Options for the Office 365 Ribbon Appearance

    I am disappointed with the appearance of the new Office 365 ribbon. I use a desktop and a laptop and find the monotone look and the over simplistic icons confusing and hard to read. These look like changes, just for the sake of change.
    Options to revert to earlier versions that users were familiar with, would have been appreciated.

  8. Give customers more advance notice when the Office 365 URLs and IP addresses are going to be updated.

    Hello,

    It is very difficult for customers (especially in the government space) to quickly make changes to their networking and firewalls when we update the O365 URLs and IP addresses. We have given customers several ways to monitor these changes (RSS, Web Service, Flow, Rest API Search, script, etc.), but they need more advance notice when we are going to change something.

    Here is some direct customer feedback:
    Microsoft is making an endpoint change and is expecting the customer to automate everything on their side to implement that change on the fly (firewall, routes, etc.) In our environment the network…

  9. RMS Compatibility with Outlook recipients outside the tenant. Outlook universal compatibility for reading or opening RMS Encrypted Emails.

    Currently, there are only specific Outlook versions (see link below) that could read inbound encrypted emails. This is a big limitation for Office 365 tenant who are sending encrypted emails to external users. We don't get to decide the recipients of our emails so we cannot dictate for them to have specific subscriptions or Office versions. Most clients / customers use Office 2016 Home or Office 365 Business, which means that most IRM emails.

  10. SharePoint Online Site Usage - allow to increase the number of day setting from 7, to 30 or 90 for 'Most unique viewers' and 'Most viewed'

    When in the SharePoint Online Site Usage page the charts allow the user to see the data displayed based on 7, 30, or 90 days based on what the user chooses.

    I suggest we allow this same number of day selection for the listed documents for 'Most unique viewers' and 'Most viewed'. That way we can see how the documents are trending for more than just 7 days.

  12. PST File on OneDrive Doesn't Sync after closing outlook and/or creates New Versions

    I have my PST file on one drive so I can open it on different devices when needed. I don't expect it to sync while opened but to sync after I close immediately. But it stays there saying "High network traffic" and doesn't do anything until I reboot or close one drive and re-open it. Microsoft support claims the file is trying to be synced continuously so it causes this. So I tried this one Google Drive and it works just fine. As soon as the file is closed it syncs.

    Also sometimes when opening the file on another device…

  14. Make O365 URLs and IPs connect via ExpressRoute

    We are using JSON file in the following article to restrict destinations by selecting a route automatically in order to optimize the load balance. However, some URLs such as "*.microsoft.com" or *.aria.microsoft.com won’t be connected through ER. Because of this, traffics via ER are less than the others, and make the traffic load unstable. So, I would like you to make the URLs above to be routed through ExpressRoute.

  16. Forms completed in preview mode should not be counted as response

    If users take too long to complete a form in preview mode, the form may time out and freeze, and users need to start over. Forms completed in preview mode should not have their responses counted - this would allow proper testing and would have highlighted the fact earlier that the users were not using the correct methodology for completing a published form.

  18. Add native Outlook contact to Outlook phone app

    Hello, I am using outlook since 2004 and have thousands of them. No other contact app is fully compatible to outlook contacts when factoring categories and various fields. The way we have it set up in or business, many contacts are companies; in the individual company contact we have various personal in various fields according to their position in the company. Due to that, Outlook contacts never did a good job integrating into Google or iPhone contacts. Back in the days, I even got a Windows phone hoping it will provide a good integration with Outlook contacts. It did not.

  19. Allow for screen pop to a URL based on caller id (for CRM search based on phone number)

    Allow users to add a url that will pop up in a separate (or imbedded) window (browser), that allows for the addition of the caller ID from an inbound (or outbound) caller. Example: https://www.bing.com/search=(Caller ID) or https://www,MyCRM.com/Universal_Search=(Caller ID) OR (Caller Name)
    This would then open the URL in Edge or Chrome, etc. allowing the user to search for information based on the Caller ID (eg. WhitePages.com)

    On other times at is a translation error, for example:
