  1. Collapse filters in modern document libriaries for sharepoint online

    When viewing the filters pane in a modern document library it would be nice if you would be able to collapse a certain filter to get a cleaner view, especially when using filtering and metadata navigation. Even better if you could choose to have it collapsed as default.

  3. On Sign out of Office 365 erase cookie holding answer to "Keep Me Signed In"

    When I sign out of Office 365 and then close my browser. As expected I will get prompted for my user name (from the drop down list provided) and I will then be prompted for my password, once I click Sign in, I'm automatically forwarded to my Office 365 startup page, which is SharePoint. If I close my browser again and re-open, I'm prompted to select my user account and enter my password again. This is an issue. If this issue was created because my answer to the question "Keep me signed in?" was cached in my web browser, the…

  4. Outlook add-in PST Import Service

    Improve the PST Import Service by creating an Outlook add-in that can be deployed to users. The users could use the add-in to select which of their PST's should be uploaded. The add-in would then use a service account / service principal which uploads the PST to Azure blob storage SAS URI, and an import job created automatically.

    This all seems quite possible. It would be better than dragging/dropping PST items manually in Outlook. The add-in might need to include Azcopy.exe somehow, etc.

  7. Provide a Fully Functional Data Migration Option

    The support representative said this is the only way to report bugs, so please consider this a bug report. My suggestion is that Office 365 include a fully functional mechanism by which to import (and export) data, as neither PST import nor IMAP migration are fully functional. After spending over a week trying to migrate data from GoDaddy O365 to Microsoft O365, I'm forced to cancel our plans to move away from GoDaddy-managed O365 due to the fact that there is currently no way to reasonably and reliability move all of the data over.

    PST Import: Much/most of the data…

  9. Fix & Improve OneDrive Security to Compete with other file sharing services

    OneDrive is supposed to be able to be configured to send you emails when external users accept a file sharing invitation. It doesn't work! No matter what I try I never receive an email. I have a ticket open with support but so far they have no answers. This feature needs to work for OneDrive to be a viable file sharing service.

    If you share OneDrive files with an external user then the external user gets created in your tenant's user list. If you delete that external user from your tenant user list then that user can continue to access…

  14. Allow users to assign retention policy tags on the Notes folder

    After moving users to Office 365, the Default MRM Policy gets applied and archives all folders after 2 years including Notes. It would be a great idea if users were capable of assigning a personal retention tag to not archive the Notes

  15. Difference between ANSI and UNICODE PST?

    As I know about both Outlook PST files type such as ANSI and UNICODE PST. ANSI used in Outlook 97, 98, 2000, and in 2002 edition and UNICODE which is a advance type used by Outlook 2003, 2007, 2010, 2013 and 2016 editions.

    But I would like to know what are other main difference between these two types.

  19. Combine and consolidate different Microsoft Apps where possible

    I am using the Office 365 for Business Ecosystem and it appear that there is often a lot of over lap between different apps in terms of their functions, and they could be combined.

    It often appears that many competing single products offer the same functionality as combinations of several of the bundled Microsoft Apps.

    For example, Microsoft Teams, Planner, Microsoft To Do, Tasks in Outlook, Yammer, Groups, Skype

    All seem to feature elements of communication, task/project management and scheduling with team work.

    It would be great to see these consolidated into a simpler product offering where one communication platform…
