  1. 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…

  9. 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…

    We have used Teams Chat Group in everyday. It has created many group there, and we will join new numbers in created group to share chat history. But Chat history not include files which numbers have been shared in group.(New numbers only look it and not open it(no permission)).

  13. Enable message tracking by domain.

    A spammer can fake multiple addresses from a single domain to send thousands of messages. Doing the domain search rather than the sender's exact address would make it easier to prepare receipt reports.

  15. Replicate the ability to see tasks in calendar view in Office 365 Outlook online

    Using Outlook to manage my work the calendar view with tasks is how I run my day to day work. A simple view of the work to be done today - calendar appointments and tasks in one! Why is the ability to see tasks in the calendar view not available in 365 online? It spoils a near perfect workplace.

  16. viewing rooms and equipment from "New Meeting"

    When creating a new meeting in Outlook 365 (desktop app or web), there's a drop-down for rooms, but no rooms appear. The only way to view rooms is to view the entire Global Address Book, which is lengthy and can be difficult for users to find the rooms. Similarly, booking a piece of equipment. In fact, there is no option to view equipment, except for viewing the entire GAB. This should certainly be a quick and useful fix to Outlook

  17. anonymous sharing of SharePoint files from mobile device impossible

    When using the SharePoint apps on IOS and Android on mobile phones such as iPhone 7 it is not possible to share anonymous links with external users.It is possible to share with external users but they must log in. Why is this different from when you log on through a browser.

    Using the sharing functionality in the mobile browser is a nightmare because the on screen keyboard covers the sharing dialog. It can be done but it is very difficult.

    Please make anonymous sharing possible through the SharePoint and OneDrive apps. Until this is fixed I will stick to DropBox…

  18. Reconsider retiring Skype for Business and Microsoft Teams for Windows 10 Mobile

    Microsoft announced it is retiring Skype for Business and Microsoft Teams for Windows 10 Mobile. I would ask they reconsider this and instead only retire the apps when support for Windows 10 Mobile itself is retired (Dec 2019). Microsoft marketed Windows 10 Mobile for the enterprise as recently as last year with the HP Elite X3 Windows 10 Mobile device. Many companies have invested in this technology for their businesses and would be losing key Office 365 capability with the retirement of these two apps. These apps are already stable and working great. Why not leave them in the Microsoft…

  19. Outlook desktop - Move Function - Allow 'search' option when moving emails from inbox

    When moving an email from your inbox, the ability to 'search' folders under the move option on the ribbon (from the inbox) would increase productivity. Similar to the search option available online for Outlook in 365.

  20. edit point of shape is unavailable

    I am using Publisher 365. In the older version, I can edit points of a basic shape to create a new pattern, but in the latest version this function is unavailable. Everytime I open my old file, these changes do NOT show, thus makes my posters look wired. Please enable this function please.
