  1. 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…

  2. 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.

  3. Raise hand feature in Teams Meetings

    To minimize interruptions in Teams meetings, it should be possible for all participants to signal that they want to speak by clicking a "Raise Hand" button. All other participants should be able to see who has requested to speak.

  5. 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…

  6. Auditing of Storage Quota setting (Manual/Automatic) in SharePoint Online

    Please set up auditing of Storage Quota setting (Manual/Automatic) in SharePoint Online. Currently it's impossible to track who changed the setting from manual to automatic, which automatically changes storage quota for all sites to default 25 TB. In enterprise organization this can cause quite a mess.

  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.

  11. 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.

  14. 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.

  18. 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…

  19. [Office 365 home] additional email aliases (for "personalised email" / custom domain)

    For Office 365 home/personal you offer the feature "personalised email", which allows to connect any Domain registered via GoDaddy to O365 home accounts and create ONE mail adress per license.

    However any O365 user (=6 in O365 home) can only create ONE email adress /alias.
    I need more, e.g. for additional kids and role accounts.
    So...

    1) allow the creation of additional mail forwarders / mailboxes (admin user in "Premium Menu" -> "personalized email adress")

    2) allow to purchase / add additional O365 licenses above and beyond the 6 person limit in "O365 home" for larger families.

    3) PLEASE, pretty…

  20. 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.
