  1. Provide the Fully Qualified Domain Names (FQDN) used for authentication in Office 365

    For the FQDNs used in Office 365, it would be great if the public information in which the FDQNs used for authentication are described could be provided.

  2. 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

  3. Introduce a lobby in the education teams where the learners can wait until the class starts

    It would be great if a teacher could have learners go to the lobby when they log into the class, and then when the teacher joins they can come in from the lobby. It would also be helpful for the meeting to then end when the teacher says "end of class" or something similar

  4. Need ability to add Plan created in Planner to Teams as existing plan

    If you create a plan in planner, separately create a team in Teams.
    Try adding the existing plan to teams as a tab.
    The Add Existing Plan does not allow you to add it, it only allows you to add plans created from teams.

    This occurs even if the O365 groups associated with each have the same memberships.

    You can create a plan from teams but to copy the existing plan over you lose data. Or create a team from the plan and again you lose data so you end up keeping both which is confusing.

    Confirmed in Microsoft support…

  5. Please include details of any issues you may see after running Microsoft Support / Recovery Assistant. Microsoft サポート/回復アシスタントを実行後に表示さ

    When running the Microsoft Support and Recovery Assistant Tool (Sara), the problematic libraries and folders are not identified, so it takes time to identify the problem. I would like to make improvements so that you can get clear information on which item is the problem.
     
    Microsoft サポート / 回復アシスタント ツール (Sara) を実行した際に、問題が発生しているライブラリーやフォルダーの特定がされないため、問題の特定に時間がかかる。
    どのアイテムでの問題なのか、明確な情報が取得できるような改善を希望します。

  6. Bypass MFA authentication in Outlook Web App for delegated mailboxes with full access

    We are using Outlook Web App and exchange online from Office 365. Some mailboxes uses delegation feature with send as and full access from user A to user B. This works fine.

    But if we activate MFA authentication on user B then MFA authentication gets active if user A want to access Mailbox of user B via Outlook Web App. In this case MFA authencitation should be bypassed, because user A is already authenticated with his own credentials.

  7. PowerBI Desktop Smart Card Authentication

    The PowerBI Desktop client does not appear to support a smartcard login. This could prevent large chunks of the government and banking industries from using this powerful tool.

  9. Make Office Add-ins in our tenant independent from optional connected experiences setting

    Forms and Find Time are services of which data resided in our own 365 tenant. Therefor we'd like to be able to leverage their respective add-ins in the office applications like Outlook and PowerPoint.

    Bounded by GDPR we needed to disable the 'optional connected experiences' in Office, as Bing Search in PowerPoint and other public services are subject to different terms as the once agreed upon in the Microsoft Online Service Terms.

    When disabling Optional Connected Experiences all add-in are disabled, even the ones subject to the Microsoft OST like FindTime.

    Can you change the disablement of Optional Connected Experiences…

  11. Skype for Business Meeting List should show Organizer name

    Skype for Business Meeting List should show Organizer name

    As of today, it only shows the meeting name and the timings but it would be really good to have the name of the meeting organizer, there is a lot of space to fit in this information.

    It would be really useful to have this information included. It does not require too much of development to incorporate this additional field.

  12. Support the viewmodel=IComposeCalendarItemViewModelFactory or any other generic way to create a calendar item from url

    Since a long time we have been using the url https://{Exchange domain}/owa?viewmodel=IComposeCalendarItemViewModelFactory to directly open the popup to start composing a new appointment.

    Recently this seems to stop working for Exchange Online. We did found an article on an alternative (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/archive/blogs/carloshm/how-to-compose-a-new-message-or-event-and-populate-fields-in-office365#comment-1645), though they all open the full calendar app instead of the popout version.

    Provide a way(pop-out) to create a new calendaritem from an url without the full OWA interface.

  13. Implement a feature that can view multiple files by scrolling the screen in Windows Photo Viewer

    Currently, you can only view one image file at a time although there are multiple files in Windows Photo Viewer.
    So, I would like you to implement a feature that can view multiple image files by scrolling the screen horizontally/vertically like Microsoft Office Document Imaging does.

  14. Introduce a pause button during meeting recordings within the education teams

    It would be better to have a pause button while teaching so that when we break we don't have to stop the recording, we can pause it and pick it up again once the class is back to teaching.

  15. allow used to disable the "Top Results" feature of the new search in Outlook 365 and OWA

    The "Top Results" (3 items at the top of new outlook search results) are unhelpful and so far have never been what I was looking for. I am requesting a way to disable those search results.

  16. Allow Islands mode users to choose between Skype meeting and Teams meeting in Outlook mobile clients.

    It will be meaningful for Islands mode users to choose between Skype or Teams meeting from Outlook mobile clients. Currently, only one kind of meeting will appear in mobile apps depending on user's coexistence mode.

  17. 'Reply To' in chat

    TEAMS chat should have a reply feature like the one found in FB Messenger. When you want to respond to an older message, you hit Reply, and the message you are replying to is included as a superscript with your reply.

  18. Add more options to how to hide a recipient from Address Lists

    Currently, there are only 2 ways to hide a recipient from Address Lists; to use Address Book Policy or to use HiddenFromAddressListsEnabled.

    When there is a distribution group (group B) with HiddenFromAddressListsEnabled : $true, the group email address is not displayed in the Address List.

    When that group is nested inside another distribution group (lets say group A) with HiddenFromAddressListsEnabled : $false, when sending new email to group A, group B is not displayed as a member of group A because it is hidden from Address List.

    I request an option to inherit "HiddenFromAddressListsEnabled" parameter or an option to "hide…

  19. MS Excel Compare

    As there is MS Word Compare, it would be great and make total sense to have the same tool for Excel, so that many users working on a same Excel sheet could view who changed what and where.

  20. Microsoft Teams BusyOnBusy screen time

    When you call someone who is busy in line and you have the policy "busyonbusy" enabled, the screen that shows "this user is currently in a call" is shown to short.
    The screen shows up for about 1 second and it is not enough to read. It should be around 3-5 seconds, to be read.
