  1. Option to filter People results in SharePoint Modern Search etc

    I am working for a client atm and they are getting Disables user accounts and service accounts (_SpCRWL00000, Foreign Principal) in People Search results in the Modern Search. Unlike classic search this does not change if i add a search query rule.

    Could you include an option that filters out the dross such as any disabled accounts and any service accounts?

  2. spell check in sharing dialog

    The sharing dialog used for all sharepoint/Onedrive sharing allows you to type a short message (up to 500 words - why no more?). Bizarrely, with spell check active nearly everywhere else in Windows, you do not offer it here. I am a great speller but a lousy typist and always add errors - the red lines are very useful. I can't imagine it would be hard to loop through the right function.

  4. Self explanatory information related to Skype for business on the office 365 portal

    Skype for Business-Self explanatory information related to Skype for business should be available on the office 365 portal so that they will get to know that they have to install SFB from the portal itself and then configure the business email address in it so that they do not try to configure the business email account in Consumer skype

  5. Add a Label creating/printing capability

    Allow Publisher (and PowerPoint) to use/edit/print mailing labels and other types of labels (name badges, etc) such as those found in MS Word. Publisher provides much more flexibility and allows for creativity not possible in MS Word.

  7. enable Global Admins to spin up a dev or test version of the tenant, with or without apps / data.

    It would great if from a fully license tenant admins could spin up a copy as development or test tenant. Support and development on a live, change controlled, complex )365 environment is nigh on impossible. Obviously what you ca spin up would depend on the licences you have, and for the fuller licences, there would be an option to choose which data areas and apps are copied too (i.e. in teams - a sliding scale of the amount of detail the could be copied could be something like teams sites top level structure, conversations in a team, files in a…

  8. When setting an alert when removing a file from document folder, also send the alert when a version of that file is deleted.

    When you set an alert on a folder so that you recieve a message when a file is deleted, you will however not get an alert when a version is deleted from a file. You will not check the versions very often and this way version history is lost without you knowing it.

  10. Fix two different sharing options we get while sharing document from Document Library Versus Document Library (preview) App

    If we try to share a document from the Document Library App added on the home page(of a SPO site) we see the sharing option as "People in your Organization" and when we try to share a document from the actual Document Library (Allitems.aspx) we see the option as "People in ACTUALORGANIZATIONNAME" (it shows my organization name in place of "ACTUALORGANIZATIONNAME").
    This confuses the new O365 business users as they feel they may see different behavior if they use these two options.

  13. Allow SharePoint root site to be a hub site

    Many of us wanting to create a SharePoint infrastructure based on the new modern templates want to be able to use the root site as a modern SharePoint hub site, but this is not yet possible. Can this be addressed? Here is some background.

    I recently created a modern page on our SP tenant root site and made that into the home page. Since the root site was a classic site, it remained a team site with the left side navigation, but now had the modern look I wanted. Then I turned the site into a hub site. I ran…

  14. Stop opening new tabs when navigating Office 365

    Our users are getting frustrated at Office 365 because of the number of tabs it opens when navigating through the different solutions.

    It would be nice for the end user to have a setting to prevent new tabs from opening in their browser when clicking through the product.

  15. O365 Login truncate # (hash) on URL after logging-in

    With SharePoint Online, if user paste a link without #, after logging-in, it redirect correctly to destination page.

    But if it an URL that containing #(hash) incon, after logging-in, all text after # will be removed.

    Example:

    With https://Tenant-Name.sharepoint.com/sites/intranet#aboutus/employees, after logging-in, it redirect to https://Tenant-Name.sharepoint.com/sites/intranet

  16. Allow Admins of O365 to logon to a PC setup the program without hitting a threshhold on installations

    When an admin is deploying Office 365 on a new PC where there may not be a new user yet, we are dinged an install. You hit ten installs and you cannot move forward. What happens is when we hit that magic number 10 and have to deactivate the program, it makes the user reset their credentials and causes a flurry of support calls, and we have to reset ten users passwords and this takes time. The Admin user should be allowed to install the program without causing a licensing issue. May a subroutine in the install asking us if…

  19. onenote UI for opening notes is not very good at all

    When I go to open a note, the UI has three general areas. One shows a list of notebooks based on one active account (with link to switch accounts).
    Then a 2nd box is "Open from other locations" and the third area is like a recent list and pinned notes.
    This entire UI is very difficult to use for me.

    The Section on top for "Open from OneDrive" does not list everything, in fact it's missing everything. I used to use OneNote on my regular Hotmail/Microsoft account, but then I later bought O365 and have been storing notes on that…
