  1. Logout option on O365 error pages

    When someone goes to an O365 page that they don't have access to (e.g. portal because I am logged into wrong user) there is no LOGOUT option, so I've had to bookmark https://t.co/6BhMjwmxH0 can you pretty please just add a logout link to error pages

  2. Hide specific app tiles from Office 365 home or app launcher

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    Office 365 ホームやアプリ ランチャーからのリンクの非表示について

    Hide specific app tiles from Office 365 home or app launcher


    ■Description(内容):
    現在はライセンスをオフにしないと Office 365 ホームやアプリ ランチャーのリンクが非表示にできない。([Forms]、[Flow] など) ライセンスをオンにしていても Office 365 ホームやアプリ ランチャーのリンクを非表示にする設定を追加してほしい。

    We cannot hide app tiles from Office 365 home or app launcher unless we turn off the apps’ licenses. (For instance, we want to hide Forms and Flow only)

    For improvement of manageability, allow us to hide specific app tiles without turning off the licenses.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  3. Retain data of Onedrive and Echange in Office365

    When user is removed E3 license from Office365, OneDrive data remains after 30days. But Exchange online retains the data for 30 days.
    We confirmed the specification with Office365 support.
    We hope to match the specification of OneDrive and Exchange online.
    Or When user is removed E3 license from Office365, We hope to retain both data in a few years.

  4. Shortcut to play/pause embedded videos in PowerPoint

    There is no current shortcut to play/pause videos in PowerPoint, only current option is to click on the embedded video or to click the play/pause button. Using a mouse is NOT convenient while giving a presentation.

  5. Saving emails to hard-drive or sharepoint folders faster

    We need to be able to save attachments to folders faster. When I right click on an attachment I should be able to select a folder on my hard drive or from Sharepoint immediately. The same goes for mobile apps... I use the outlook app for iOS (Iphone) and you can't save attachments from the outlook email app directly to sharepoint folders.
    To me it's obvious that we should have the ability to save files wherever we want with as few clicks as possible. Your customer service is great though!

  7. Notification required when CNAME record value has been changed

    It would be very helpful if I can check updates or changes on CNAME record value by any public facing article like Microsoft Docs “Office 365 URLs and IP address ranges” or notification messages. So that users can be notified without any efforts.

  8. Date Headers Outlook OWA Office 365 enabled for Compact Layout

    Currently, Date Headers in Settings Page, eventhough enabled does not function at all, for selected Compact Layout or Display Density.

    I like the slimness of Compact and also, Date Headers for many practical reasons. Therefore, hope to see Date Headers to be brought into Compact as well.

  10. Renew O365 Developer Website without deletion

    Today I lost my "Developer Website" on O365 that I had for years with my Visual Studio Enterprise Subscription. This is way a do not like the cloud. What worked for years does not work any more. And only 6 days left before the subscription expires. No warning that "You cannot renew this site". Nothing. This is really sad.

  11. Protect specific terms and names from being autotranslated in support articles

    Greetings!
    Some articles have been made totally unusefull in autotranslated variant, because the translation affected specific terms, that should not be translated, such as filenames, URLs, registry paths, keys and values.
    https://support.office.com/ru-ru/article/%d0%92-onedrive-%d0%b8-onedrive-%d0%b4%d0%bb%d1%8f-%d0%b1%d0%b8%d0%b7%d0%bd%d0%b5%d1%81%d0%b0-%d0%be%d1%82%d1%81%d1%83%d1%82%d1%81%d1%82%d0%b2%d1%83%d1%8e%d1%82-%d0%bd%d0%b0%d0%bb%d0%be%d0%b6%d0%b5%d0%bd%d0%b8%d1%8f-%d0%b7%d0%bd%d0%b0%d1%87%d0%ba%d0%be%d0%b2-%d1%81%d0%b8%d0%bd%d1%85%d1%80%d0%be%d0%bd%d0%b8%d0%b7%d0%b0%d1%86%d0%b8%d0%b8-b25070ab-2226-4ad8-b1fc-ae28cc44ecd2?omkt=ru-RU&ui=ru-RU&rs=ru-RU&ad=RU

    This URL above is a russian translation of the support article, where registry path
    HKEYLOCALMACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\ShellIconOverlayIdentifiers

    And the same problem further:

    SkyDrivePro2 (SyncInProgress) > Скидривепро2 (СинЦинпрогресс)
    OneDrive2 > Онедриве2

    You simply can't follow this article to solve you issues.
    My advice is to add some HTML or XML tag or whatever other protection for those parts of text that shold…

  12. Provide/suggest solutions to view docx source code

    User Godsmith worded my question/concern very well at

    https://superuser.com/questions/539919/view-source-equivalent-for-word-documents

    Basically, I'm looking for a LaTeX-editing experience for producing .docx files, with the high control of formatting and display of my Word document.

    Issue after issue after issue with formatting word documents keeps arising. There are better solutions such as LaTeX, however my workplace demands the use of Microsoft Word. So I am stuck with using Word.

    Is there a way I can control what is happening with my Word Document at the source code level so that I have better control over the formatting and display options?

    I know a…

  13. Numbers of active seats are displayed differently depending on pages

    I would like you to improve how numbers of active seats are displayed in each page. Currently you can check seats in the following three pages, but the numbers are differrent depending on pages.

  14. Support all OpenType Features on Office 365

    I've made a custom opentype font with contextual alternates (CALT feauture). It works just fine on both PC and MAC (indesign, Pages, notepad, ...) but not in the office package. (yes i clicked the contextual alternates) I think The office package doesn't support the full OpentYpe Features.

  15. Create a mechanism to allow users to sync entire sharepoint site collections via onedrive

    It would be useful to allow admins to provision users for the ability to set up a site collection sync for all libraries in one click if desired. This is particularly meaninful when there are onedrive sync client failures. We have had a number of instances in which the onedrive sync client broke, and the only solution was to have users go back through their lirbaries and re-sync them one at a time, which is really time consuming. We have about a hundred different subsites and libraries, so this is pretty painful. it happens to us once or twice a…

  16. default notification

    Outlook Mobile ignores when calendar appointments are set to no notification and instead uses a default of 15 minutes prior to meeting start. We use this on all day events so it wakes folks up just a few minutes before midnight. It should honor the setting of the appointment.

  18. Allow OneDrive KFM to worry with Folder Redirection polices

    If you have FR configure by GPO
    E.g. Documents - \SERVER\Share\User\Documents

    KFM in OneDrive will not work because of the path.
    The path has to be local “C:\Users\User\Documents

    You can achieve this using FR GPO and selecting “Redirect to user local profile location”, also if you select “Move Contents” on the settings area of the GPO at logon the data will be copied from the server location to the local location.

    However KFM still failed for me with the paths being local. I then had to set all FR GPOs to “Not Configured”.

    To me this is pretty poor as…

  19. Enable Conditional Formatting Window and Column resizing in Excel Offline

    Excel's Conditional Formatting Window and Column Sizes cannot be resized! This restricts users with more than 5 rules to constantly scroll up and down. This is especially a problem as "copy" "paste" creates duplicates of Conditional formatting at the top of all rules.

  20. Creating a gantt chart for Outlook tasks

    Outlook is our main tool when it comes to keeping track on tasks and to share tasks in our team. But it would be even more great (and less time-consuming) if we could create a gantt chart in order to get an better overview of tasks, deadlines etc.
