  1. Business & Personal OneDrive compatibility and shared resources

    I was told today by Office Tech Support that I should choose between OneDrive for Business and OneDrive for Personal because having both on the computer may cause issues. How absurd?! There are millions of small business owners (& employees, contractors, etc) who use machines for both personal and business use.
    1) Ensure compatibility between your own products (MS makes the OS, MS makes OneDrive Business, MS makes OneDrive Personal. Why can't you make them get along?!).
    2) Why should I pay for both when I only use a small percentage of the 1TB of space each allows. In fact,…

  3. Word fonts not consistent on Mac and PC

    Documents saved in Word on a Mac do not appear the same in Word on a PC. The PC seems to be substituting different fonts for the ones used by the Mac, despite the fact that the proper fonts are present on the PC.

  4. I would like an option to turn-off reminders when I enter historical appointments in Outlook

    I use Outlook for my time card.

    I would like an option to prevent the reminder window from popping up when I enter historical appointments.

    For example, if it is 12 noon and I enter an appointment for a 15-minute telephone call that happened at 8:00 am, I do not need a reminder to let me know that my appointment is 4 hours overdue.

    Thank you.

  5. Operated by 21Vianet issue

    Hi.

    I had an issue with our Office 365 service where documents had a message at the bottom saying "Operated by 21Vianet according to Chinese law". As we do not operate in china and should not have any data in china, we were deeply concerned.

    It disappeared in the end but we are still concerned as we would never want data hosted in China.

    Really not sure what happened.

  7. Singnet Email Address - Sending Error

    Multiple singtel users in Singapore could not forward emails in outlook.
    Have got the response from Singtel:
    Please be informed, regarding email client Outlook 2016 we have been getting feedback that Microsoft Outlook 2016 Professional Edition users are not able to receive some of their emails, including Singnet emails. This is pending for Microsoft to come up with a patching to resolve the Microsoft Outlook 2016 setting.

    As we are uncertain when Microsoft will be able to resolve this issue, we suggest using an alternative mail client in the meantime such as Windows Mail, Windows Live Mail or an older…

  9. One Drive select Data Centre Storage Location

    I use Onedrive, I'm based in Dubai and my Microsoft 365 account is in the UK. Sometimes the update speed is slow. I don't know where (which data centre) my files are stored, but it doesn't make sense if 95% of the time I'm in Dubai and my files are stored in the UK or far away. It would be a good idea say to be able to choose the location of the data centre (I would choose middle east) then (I presume there are back ups) the UK, then Spain as I sometimes work there. Could make things faster…

  10. Sharepoint Default "Copy To"/"Move To" Location (Allow User Setting)

    I suggest that you default the "copy to"/"move to" location in Sharepoint (through web browser) as the current folder location, rather than the root directory of the library. It's quite frustrating when you are several folders deep in the structure, only to have to find your way all the way down again, just to move a file to another folder in the same folder as where you started.

    At the very least, if this doesn't suit others, it would be helpful if this was a user setting.

  12. Credentials are regularly corrupted, meaning OneDrive can't save files

    Hi,
    One of our clients regularly has issues where by an upload is blocked due to a bad sign in. The solution we've been given is to remove this from the Windows 10 settings dialog, then re-sign in to an Office application. This has happened about 5-6 times in the last year, and our client is getting annoyed with us.

    The Microsoft support team say they won't look in to this as they offer a solution, but it's very frustrating for both the customer and ourselves.

    Thank you,
    Rick.

  14. Planner - Automated Syncing of icalendars once set for a Plan

    Just getting ramped up with Planner. Love the idea that an icalendar of a Plan can be done so I can see the withing my web or local Outlook client.

    However, very surprised that once set up, it must be published and saved each time a change is made in tasks dates, etc.

    It would seem once a user has committed to create an icalendar link, it should be syncronized automatically ongoing.

    What is the rationale for not doing so?

    Thank you,
    Rick

  19. In a business situation a SharePoint library would be able to contain more than 100000 items. for our company

    It is a major limitation for our company. In a business situation there's a lot of data that should be in the same library, so split up libraries is not an solution. Please find a better way for this.

  20. Turn back on the ability to copy or move messages to a Shared Mailbox Folder

    We used to be able to move a copy of an email from our inbox to a folder in a Shared Mailbox for purchasing archive purposes. This feature stopped working 1/19/18.

    This was quite handy in our business and we want the feature back!
