  1. Request for contents edited in Word Online to be reflected in library columns

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    Word Online で編集した内容をライブラリの列に反映されることを希望します。
    Request for contents edited in Word Online to be reflected in library columns

    ***************
    ■Description(内容):
    以下の手順にて、Word の内容とライブラリの列を連携することが可能です。
    ・ Word 画面上部の [挿入] タブから [クイック パーツ] - [文書プロパティ] を クリックして、ライブラリで作成した列を選択

    しかしながら、クライアントの Word アプリから編集保存した場合はライブラリの列に反映されますが、Word Online で Flow を利用して編集した場合はライブラリの列に反映されません。
    Word Online で編集した場合もライブラリの列に反映されるように機能の追加を希望します。

    If you follow the procedure below, it’s possible to have content in Word function with library columns:
    Go to “Insert”, and select “Quick Parts”, “Document Property”, then select the columns you have in the library.
    However, while this reflects contents correctly when made in the Word application, if you made it with Word Online and…

  2. Remove "top results" from outlook.live email. Years of complaints and no response

    Why after several years do you continue to list top results. They are never the top results. Users have complained for years yet someone at microsoft thinks it should remain while giving the comment to leave feedback because you are driven by customer/user feedback. Give us the option to remove it.

  5. Add an option for MS Stream to export the transcript to Word/Excel

    I would like to have the option to export the Microsoft Stream video transcript to other filetypes (with appropriate formatting), such as Word or Excel. Perhaps the Word export would be a running paragraph of text with no timestamps, whereas the Excel export could be two columns. In column A, we could have the timestamp; in column B, we would have the text of that phrase.

    This, and any other exports, would be greatly helpful!

  6. Restrict Office 365 account association with Windows 10

    If an Office 365 account is associate with Windows 10, you might not be able to sign in Office clients, IE, or Edge successfully after changing the Office 365 password due to the account association.
    So, we would like to ask adding a feature that restricts Office 365 account association with Windows 10 or improving the sign-in behavior to be completed successfully after password change.
    Also, we would like to ask adding a warning on the prompt when signing in Office client, because if a user select “Yes” when signing in Office clients, the account will be associated with Windows…

  7. Allow users to edit PDF's directly in SharePoint and OneDrive

    We have several customers who work in PDF's, not in word. There is no easy way in SharePoint to edit in PDF's. Customers can easily "edit in word", but cannot edit a PDF. They need to open it (which at first defaults to a browser and not a PDF), download it, work on it (offline and out of SharePoint and out of the "SharePoint Online" product) save changes manually, and re-upload. This whole process goes against what Microsoft advertises in terms of easily accessible,work from anywhere online pitch, and brings people away from your product and towards adobe instead. For…

  8. customize the button help " ? " located on the office 365 navigation bar

    It is interesting to be able to modify the labels on the Office help page ( ?) in the main navigation.
    As this navigation bar is located on almost every Office 365 service (SharePoint, Outlook...) it would be convenient if each administrator of the tenant could control and customize the information that is relevant or not.
    It will therefore be easy to find information that you want to push to the majority of the tenant's users.
    - To be able to move the labels,
    - Be able to add links easily

  9. Control icons that are displayed in the Office 365 portal

    The icons displayed at portal.office.com do not always work. In particular, the OWA icon fails with an error if OWA is disabled on premise and the user's mailbox is not in the cloud or if OWA has been disabled in the cloud. Need to remove the OWA icon in such cases.

  11. Share PowerApps with Office 365 Groups

    Office 365 Groups (aka: "unified-groups") are becoming the "standard" share target in Office 365. You can share SharePoint content (files, list items, etc.) with an O365 Group. You can share Microsoft Stream content with an O365 Group. You can share a Flow with an O365 Group. You CANNOT, however, share a PowerApp with an O365 Group. This is a huge issue and greatly complicates our job of "selling" PowerApps as a solution.

    For example, we've successfully convinced a LOT of our client groups that an O365 Group is a better solution than "just" a SharePoint site (most of these had…

  13. Increase number of users that can access a shared mailbox simultaniously - O365

    Based on answer from Microsoft support, Shared mailboxes support only 4 users simultaniously… "These limits is not just applicable to a shared mailbox but any account which is configured (Connected accounts, Shared mailbox or a primary profile) would fall in this scope.

    Yes, 4 delegates for a shared mailbox as a max and this is a hard coded limit a pre-defined limit from our product group engineering team which cannot be changed by anyone. It is controllable for an on-premises environment but not for cloud business."

    Why are these numbers not official, and why cannot Microsoft add support to more…

  16. Allow users to Filter/Group/Sort MS Flow

    Currently when you view your created Flows or Flows that have been shared with you it is displayed in a list. This can easily become disorganized if users have multiple Flows for multiple projects. Allow users the ability to Group/Sort/Filter their existing Flows to gain control over their workspace.

    Ideally this functionality would work similarly to that found in SharePoint list.

    Thank you

  17. Change the ribbon icons back to how they were!

    The new ribbon icons are terrible!

    They are very low contrast and I'm having trouble working out which is which!

    There's very little colour and it's really hard to differentiate between similar icons. I have 'set print area' and 'preview and print' next to each other and there's no difference aside from a thin blue line on set print area.

    Please provide the option to change back to the previous icons or the ability to select from high contrast or low contrast.

  18. Enable admins to see previous communication histories of the re-opened support tickets in Microsoft 365 admin center

    If you re-open a support ticket which had been already closed in Microsoft 365 admin center, you cannot see the previous communication histories which has been shown until the case was closed. So, please let admins see those histories if re-opening the closed ticket.

  19. Microsoft Teams forward calls to Call Queue or a Distribution Group

    Provide the ability for users to forward a call to a Call Queue or a Distribution Group within Microsoft Teams. Also the ability to choose 10-second forward instead of only 20-second. Would even help if an admin can create a Call Group in the admin center and have users add that instead of having to add to the call group in teams individually for each user.
