  2. Update SPO Cmdlets to support new file size and path limits

    Hello, attempting to use the SPO cmdlets to perform migrations of data to SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business, but the cmdlets do not support the new file size limits and path limits. We are getting errors when we try to migrate files larger than 2Gb.

  4. Sort that thing where you can't share from a 'Recent' document

    Hi,
    If I open a recent document from my Office 365 landing page and choose to edit it in the browser based version of the software (Word, Excel etc) the Share button doesn't work. If I open the document via my OneDrive I can share it no problem. Be great if you could sort that. Ta.

  5. Give users the option to default meeting start times to five minutes after the hour and half hour

    In the user options for calendars, the user should have the ability to have default meeting start times to five minutes after the hour and half hour. The meeting can still end on the hour and half hour, but the extra time at the start allows for travel and admin between meetings for them to start on time.

  6. Allow version history deletion in MS Word (now that you have enabled it, let us delete it if we done want it!)

    MS Word recently has added in version history. Now when I "Save As" a document, the version history comes across to the "new" document. I want to be able to delete the version history in the new word document. I cant do this unless I am working online in Sharepoint. Please either provide an option to disable version history OR be able to delete it.

  7. MS Office parity between Mac and Windows

    Feature parity should be a number ONE priority for all MS Office applications between Windows and MAC. As a use of both operating systems it is amazing the number of differences I see on a daily bases. Just the number of requests here is evidence enough that MS is not making this a high enough priority.

  8. Allow users to attach items to calendar items and save without having to send changes

    Up until recent version you were able to add attachments to existing calendar items and save without sending changes meaning you could add items that were relevant to just yourself without sending them onto every meeting attendee. This is no longer the case and is causing my business all kinds of issues with updates being sent every time we add attachments to these calendar items.

  9. For ISO 9001 comments column for versions must be required in SharePoint

    Under ISO 9001, FEDER or other regulations, comments for each document version are mandatory. The current comment column cannot be configured as required.

  10. Bug - Shadow Box Button When No Link Applied to Global Navigation with Managed Metadata Navigation

    The navigation in new UI pages has a shadow button box around the main link if no link is applied in the managed metadata navigation term store, in the "Simple link or header". This is ideal for when no hyperlink is required. My workaround for this is to add a hyperlink to our main site, another fix I found was to select in the term store "Term-Driven Page with Friendly URL". This causes a hyperlink to a page not found though, but it does not give the strange shadow button on the global navigation links.

  13. After a crash is there a way to make sure the emails that were open...reopen?

    When Office 365 crashes with multiple open emails, it does not bring back the emails that were open!!! I receive hundreds of emails per day, so I cannot go back and find the ones I did not answer every time it crashes...which is often!

  14. Please provide ability to have policy to remove all hyperlinks from email messages removed and display actual URL in its place.

    Please provide ability to have policy to remove all hyperlinks from email messages removed and display actual URL in its place. I do not trust my users to know a phishing email when they see one and ATP is not perfect. With that said, all it takes is one user to potentially bring down the ship.....

  16. one drive needs symbolic link support

    to save taking double the space for backups on a mac, please enable symbolic link backups ex ln -s source target. This way I don't need to copy to one drive folder which is challenging since the hard drive is too small in the first place

  17. offer a one press button or at least a solution without power shell to transform old classical experience sites to modern sites

    When you have a lot of classic teamsites there is up to now no way to make them appear in the modern view associated with teamsites. There is as up to now no nead to connect them to an office365 group though that would be an additional win.

    Basically just the chance to set the sitecollection experience from classic to modern, when it was created as classic

  19. Hi I have been running Microsoft Office 2007 for a very long time but just updated for Office 2016 pro In my old outlook, it collected all

    Hi

    I have been running Microsoft Office 2007 for a very long time but just updated for Office 2016 pro

    In my old outlook, it collected all my email accounts in an inbox

    I liked it but in the new outlook it splits all my accounts up in seperate inboxes

    There's a way to gather them into an inbox like in the glance outlook

  20. 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…
