  1. Outlook Desktop Recipient Cache Options

    In Outlook Desktop, please add an option to allow the user to bypass the Recipient cache, or to disable it completely, or to clear the Recipient Cache (the "Empty Auto-Complete List" option DOES NOT empty the recipient cache.) The recipient cache causes duplicate contacts to be displayed in search results, when you may only have one contact in your Contacts folder.

  3. Symbolic Links should be created when OneDrive is protecting important folders like Desktop, Pictures and Documents

    Adding the feature to protect important folders with OneDrive was a great idea. However, the current implementation can be confusing when saving files using various applications or using a command-line.

    For example, the c:\users\*username*\Desktop folder still exists separately from the c:\users\*username*\OneDrive\Desktop folder and can still be saved to. This creates instances of confusion where files may seem to be missing from OneDrive or may save to the incorrect location.

    To resolve this, I suggest when OneDrive protects important folders that the corresponding original folders turn into Symbolic Links to the OneDrive location.

  4. Exchange Online change default calendar permissions on new users

    When mailbox is generating at Exchange Online we need to have the possibility to set default calendar permissions from a template. With on-prem Exchange you can do it via Exchange Scripting Agent.

  6. Bulk control for Intelligent services

    Implement a feature that can control Intelligent services in bulk for Office 365 Business installed devices.
    Currently, we have to address the needs by changing the setting on Office app directly per PC or changing the registry value for each, and it is time consuming.
    So, it would be nice to have the feature that admin can control them in Microsoft 365 admin center.

  8. Add the options to archive the emails from "Sent items" folder on Outlook MAC

    Outlook on MAC do not have options to "Archive" the emails on the "sent items" folder. Currently, only the "inbox" folder has the option to archived the emails. Hopefully, the Outlook on MAC can be the same with the Outlook on Windows that has both option to archive the emails on "inbox" and "sent items" folder.

  11. Let Outlook search Deleted Items with Exchange FAST search

    When you turn on the option to include Deleted Items in your search results, it breaks the results. The results are incomplete, and you are unable to delete items from the search results. When you turn the option off to include Deleted Items, both things are fixed.

  12. Make thumbnails private to prevent data leak.

    Problem:
    The first page of a document is publicly accessible having the link to the thumbnail. The link has an access_token in it and with it, it is even possible to download the whole document. 

    To prevent data leak, please leave the thumbnails on the tenant and not on a public accessible "westeurope1-mediap.svc.ms/transform/thumbnail" server with a deeplink to the file.

    In the past weeks we learned on the news that simple browser plug-ins can send these links to other servers. So the risk for leaking these links and finally sensitive data is huge.

    If it is not possible to leave…

  14. Please Please Please create Microsoft office 365 for Linux

    Linux is only lacking one thing. Microsoft Office. I understand that having Linux with Microsoft office suit would possibly lower the amount of people using Windows. But the with the amount of people that use Linux in universities and businesses, this would be a cash flow for Microsoft. People are already on Linux would jump to have Microsoft's office suit on Linux, I have talked to many people that would love to have this software on Linux.

  16. A great business idea! Keep recieving phishing emails? Buy Office 365 Advanced Threat Protection!

    After we switch email service to O365, we keep receiving phishing emails that direct us to fake Microsoft login page. Security and anti-phishing policies in the admin protection center do not really help. The suggestion we get from Microsoft is to buy the Office 365 Advanced Threat Protection. What a great business idea, let phishing emails come and promote the 'Advanced Protection'. The phishing emails steal nothing. However, we are still fishes.

  18. Bring back RESIZING to context menus

    Resizing options were removed from context menus for images inserted into Office 2016 applications. Instead we have to find resizing options in the ribbon or in the formatting tools on the right. Both of those methods add both unnecessary clicks and mouse movement and are extremely inefficient for people who frequently work with images in PowerPoint and Word. I'd rather not spend hours figuring out how to use developer tools to reinsert these. No idea why a decision was made to remove yet another piece of good UX (for the sake of reducing clutter???), but it should definitely be reversed…

  19. add support for putting images in a signature in the Outlook mobile app

    The company I work for has required that everyone in the company add a picture to their email signature. All of our external sales representatives currently use the Outlook client for their email, but due to this new requirement will not be able to anymore until this is allowed.

  20. Rollback of PDF Annotation feature bar in OneDrive iOS app to version 10.34.11 in version 10.38.2

    The new annotation feature bar that displays when annotating PDF's within the OneDrive iOS app (version 10.38.2) is half the functionality of version 10.34.11. If the annotation cannot be brought back, can they reintroduce the ability to add text. \Not having the ability to add text onto documents renders the solution half useless!
