  2. Add selective subscript and superscript ability to Visio

    Currently Visio text-boxes apply superscript and subscript to all characters in the text-box. Even doing a selection (highlight) of a subset of characters will still end up applying the superscript/subscript to all characters in the text-box.

  4. In Skype for Business meeting show all videos on top row in gallery view instead of picture

    In Skype for Business meetings, it would be much better if participants who are using their videos were automatically prioritised to the top row (and therefore the video is seen).

  5. Allow users to remove an alias from Outlook

    It sounds astounding, but: how can someone remove an alias address from Outlook? When creating an email I can choose between different addresses as sender. One of them is old, unused and not functional anymore. I want to get rid of it, but it seems there is no way to do it. Microsoft customer support told me that this function doesn't exist. There is no mail account connected to Outlook or outlook.com.

  6. Implement spelling/dictionary support for additional digraph ligatures/graphemes such as “ij/IJ”

    Certain digraph ligatures and graphems are already supported in Office 365, such as “œ/Œ” in “sœur” (French), and “ff, fi, fl, ffi, ffl, ſt” in “first” or “suffix” (English). While others are not, such as “ij/IJ” in “zijn” or “bijzijn” (Dutch), and “æ/Æ” in “archæology” (English).

    It would be nice to have all of these accepted.

  7. Office 2019 Allow meeting notes to be created (take own) - same as in 2016

    I have two setups. One with notes 2016 and one with 2019. onenote notebooks are shared/replicated through onedrive for business (i have disabled replication for the onenote folder as onenote has its own replication mechanism).

    On 2016 i can ALWAYS take notes - either own or shared (in onenote, from outlook) even when i am not the organiser.

    In 2019 i CANNOT take notes - even when select "taking own" and i always get an error.

    I believe a meeting attendee should always be able to take own notes?

  9. Look into the loading times of the landing page of Microsoft Forms when users have many forms

    It seems that when a user has a large number of Forms, the landing page seems to take forever to load and often fails and you have to refresh. I wonder if the page is pre-loading the forms and the results which is causing this.

  11. MS O365 Support shouldn't ask me to provide User Principal Name of Administrator account to verify they are talking to the account holder

    I have lodged a support request through the Admin portal. MS O365 Support team has called me back and is asking me to provide User Principal Name of the Administrator account to verify they are talking to the account holder.
    There's no way in the world I am going to provide that information to a random person on the phone asking for it. That is one part of the security token required to access the entire domain.
    Ask me for the postal address on the account if you need to verify ownership.
    If I wanted to hack into a company's…

  13. Bug found! When creating and adding a site page in SharePoint, the left menu "Pages" disappears.


    1. Go to SharePoint team site > Page library

    2. Add a Site Page and then add it to the left navigation using the built-in page promotion feature

    3. The Pages link in the left navigation disappears.

    4. Open the Site Pages library and click Library settings

    5. Click List name, description and navigation

    6. Click Display this document library on the Quick Launch = Yes

    7. The Pages link is still missing

  15. Exchange, Search-Mailbox -targetMailbox same as searchmailbox

    Exchange 2016, Powershell, Search-Mailbox, Deleted Items

    Today admins can't restore harddeleted Mails with search-mailbox to same Mailbox!


    1. Admin will save many times

    2. It's more secure because Admin will not see or read any Mails from User under "Discoery Search Mailbox"

    3. Many Company has disabled PST

    Search-Mailbox -targetMailbox same as searchmailbox

  16. Include “sections” feature in PowerPoint online

    In the desktop app you can section your slide deck which creates a good overview when you collapse large decks. Please import this feature to online version.

  19. Get Office 365 to work on iOS devices

    Attempting to sign-into my work Outlook account doesn't work in Office 365 for iOS (it gives me an incorrect password notice when I have, in fact, provided the correct password). It doesn't work on my iPhone nor my iPad. I have cleared the keychains on both devices but to no avail.

  20. Bring back the Save Work Space Feature in Excel

    Excel 2016 no longer has View/Save Workspace. Please bring this back. Without it,productivity is severely compromised. Please don't tell me to write a marco. This is not an effective solution. Bring back this valuable feature. Thank you.
