  1. In Office, put the Info functionality back in the File menu.

    You now have to click File, then Info to be able to Share, Copy Path, or Open File Location in Office. This is an extra click added to an operation done dozens of times every day. Please put this functionality back where it used to be at the top of the File menu.

    Here's a picture of it.

  2. 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…

  3. Adjust how "Top Results" displays search results

    There is lots of feedback here complaining about "Top Results" and how it should be removed, but I think there is instead a simple way to fix it to appease both the lovers and haters:

    The current problem with "Top Results" is that it takes those results out of the main the search results, making it difficult to understand where in the timeline those results would have normally fallen.

    My proposal is simple: You can keep the "Top Results" algorithm the same, but display those results in both search sections- The normal search section AND the "Top Results" section.

  4. 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.

  5. More notifications option for Azure AD Connect SYNC client!!

    Hello,
    Recently, we have seen issues with our Azure AD Connect SYNC client where the sync will not stop and run for hours till you restart the server.
    I'd suggest that Microsoft implement a notification settings that if the SYNC did not complete in x amount of hours, a notification to be sent to the administrator. This will really be useful for us.

    Additionally, we need to see more detailed log when there is an issue with the Azure AD Connect SYNC client. Microsoft, please add more logging capability to this SYNC client.
    It will be useful for the administrators.

  7. 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…

  10. 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.

  13. Set Use verification code from App or Token in one-time operation on Additional security verification window

    When attempting change the authentication method to Use verification code from App or Token from others such as Authentication phone on the Additional security verification window, Notify me though app would be set automatically.
    If you want to set it correctly, you need to reset it as Use verification code from App or Token. This is very time consuming, so it would be great if one-time setting is enabled.

  15. 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. Enable UK users to use date format dd/mm/yyyy in one drive and excel online.

    Hi,

    Can you please enable UK users to use date format DD/MM/YYYY as standard in Office 365 (especially Excel and Onedrive). I thought O365 will provide an excellent solution to our collaboration and file storage needs, but I have now had to delay/ put on hold deployment after discovering that dates automatically default to US format mm/dd/yyyy. I am aware that it is possible to display dates which are inputted in US format in the UK format, but these dates need to be inputted in US format. That does not come naturally to the team and and causes issues with…

  18. 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.
