  1. Planner - Automated Syncing of icalendars once set for a Plan

    Just getting ramped up with Planner. Love the idea that an icalendar of a Plan can be done so I can see the withing my web or local Outlook client.

    However, very surprised that once set up, it must be published and saved each time a change is made in tasks dates, etc.

    It would seem once a user has committed to create an icalendar link, it should be syncronized automatically ongoing.

    What is the rationale for not doing so?

    Thank you,
    Rick

  4. In a business situation a SharePoint library would be able to contain more than 100000 items. for our company

    It is a major limitation for our company. In a business situation there's a lot of data that should be in the same library, so split up libraries is not an solution. Please find a better way for this.

  5. Add an option to the Shared Mailbox to switch on/off Focused Inbox when added as a folder

    A shared mailbox displayed as a folder does not show all messages unless the Focused Inbox for your personal mailbox is turned off.

  6. Turn back on the ability to copy or move messages to a Shared Mailbox Folder

    We used to be able to move a copy of an email from our inbox to a folder in a Shared Mailbox for purchasing archive purposes. This feature stopped working 1/19/18.

    This was quite handy in our business and we want the feature back!

  7. 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…

  8. Allow making amendments to appointments without sending notifications

    Sometimes I'd like to be just able to make small amendments in the Outlook calendar appointment, such as fixing spelling mistakes and such, and I'd rather not have to send email to all attendees every single time I make such changes in the calendar. There used to be an option in Outlook 2007 to "save" appointment without sending messages, but it seems that it disappeared in the later versions? Would be great to have it back!

  9. Provide us a transport rule to enable a reply to all senders with a broken or missing SPF record

    The incoming mail that has a bad spf record goes to Junk mail. Therefore it would be nice to inform the sender, this mail you sent us goes to junk mail, due to that your spf record is not correct. We might never see it in our junk folder. Contact your it department and ask them to fix the spf record for your domain. Something like that.

  10. Allow Modification to External Sharing Messages

    This comes from a client. They would like to see the ability to modify the external message sent to users inviting them into SPO or O4B. Specifically they want to add a policy and TOS message.

  11. Allow follow up emails to meeting attendees to be sorted by response

    We have a recurring "meeting" (workplace welfare/workout), which hasn't mandatory attendance, and relies on enough people showing up for the activity to take place.

    People who have responded, and declined, usually don't want any follow up emails or more nagging about the activity. People who've responded they're either attending or tentative, wants a status update either the day before or the same day of the activity. In addition, to ensure attendance enough to have the activity, there's a need to contact just those who've not responded.

    The Office 2016 Outlook client, has no way (that I can find) that allows…

  12. Add Join a Teams meeting button in the OWA meeting invitation

    When opening a meeting invitation in OWA, the meeting creator can't clink on the link "Join Team meeting" included in the body of the email and there's no "Join Team meeting button" like for the Skype meeting invite. The meeting creator must join through Teams directly.

  14. Teams - Allow invite to go out to everyone in Channel

    Microsoft Teams - please allow an option where when we give meet now in a channel , all members in that particular channel automatically get an invite rather than a person always typing in the attendees every time.
    A Channel is created for exclusive purpose so any meeting is supposed to be attended by everyone in that channel

  16. 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…

  17. When you open the Calendar in a new tab, keep all existing settings (such as other people's calendars that have been added).

    When you open the Calendar in a new tab, keep all existing settings (such as other people's calendars that have been added).

    Additionally, when I have many people's calendars open, if I hit the "back" button on the mouse, it removes all calendar settings.

    Additionally, if I open a new e-mail from the taskbar notification, it removes all calendar settings.

    Additionally, the "add @yourdomain.com to safe senders list" is never saved.

    I have uninstalled outlook completely due to these issues, and your support/help staff have been entirely unhelpful.

    If we have multiple Office Home and Business licenses attached to one Outlook account which you have forced upon us to activate, that we are at least able to see what licenses have been activated and what machine name/id was used to request the activation.
