  1. extension dialing from and auto attendant

    My customer has chosen to use VVX certified phones from Polycom and wants to have an option in the auto attendant for callers to dial 4 digit extensions to their destinations. She does not feel the current capability to dial a destination from the auto attendant using voice recognition system works well enough for her production deployment.

  3. Develop an app for the Kindle Fire platform.

  4. make the Office Deployment Tool validate content first before downloading files

    I use the ODT to update our DFS distribution point for C2R content. I've noticed when running with the /download switch that if the currently available version on the CDN is the same as the already downloaded version then the ODT performs a full download of all of the files that already exist. This is silly, surely it'd be much more efficient both for you and for admins for the ODT to check the file hash of the files that are present in the download target location and only download missing/corrupt content? This way admins would be able to run…

  6. Outlook Mail issue-Allow long subject to wrap around to 2nd line

    I get long subject headings from the court on a regular basis. I'd like to see the full subject heading but it truncates at the end of the column. I'd like to see a wrap around so that there could be a second line for subject like you have for message preview. A second option was to use the compact view. That worked for full view of the subject line but then I have a sort problem. I want to sort by date and then by status. The status sort appears in the columns header for single line view but…

  7. Shared Mailbox: Please bring back translation functionality

    The ability to translate messages in shared mailbox has been removed from Outlook. We are an international company and removal has been devastating to our workflows. Please put this back.

  10. 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.

  13. 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…

  15. Provide secure file upload to Office 365

    Business requires that all manner of documents containing confidential information be transferred to the company. However Office 365 does not provide a feature to collect these confidential documents without using email. Email encryption is not ready for prime time and most technology users are confounded by it. I note that Citrix ShareFile does off secure document upload capability.

  16. 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.

  19. 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…
