  1. Enhancement on Calendar to accomodate Evening/Night Work Hours which starts at first day and ends on next day as per clock hours.

    Problem statement
    Currently for instance if the Work hours is updated for Start Time as 05:30 PM and the End time is updated as 02:30 AM, an error pops up : The end date you entered occurs before the start date

    Possible solution
    1) There should be no restriction at all for what is being updated in Start/End Time. OR
    2) Split the Work Hours in such a way that End Time ends at 11.59:59 and the next day Start time starts at 12:00:00.

  3. Microsoft Stream On A 'microsoft.com' Subdomain

    As at Nov 2019, the Microsoft Stream (enterprise video platform) application is served from web.microsoftstream.com. This is inconsistent with most other Microsoft enterprise applications such as outlook.microsoft.com, teams.microsoft.com etc

    My users are used to finding Office 365 services intuitively - they only have to remember 'teams' when they want to access Microsoft Teams, for example. Yes, they could go to portal.office.com but, trust me, they don't, nor do they bookmark web.microsoftstream.com. Make it easy for them to access valuable Microsoft services!

    I suggest that you move web.microsoftstream.com to stream.microsoft.com.

    You're currently only using stream.microsoft.com to springboard to products.office.com so it…

  4. Respond to feedback

    Microsoft has responded to only a handful of the currently active suggestions. There are a number of requests that have existed for years and garnered thousands of votes, but have yet to receive any comment or action from Microsoft. Some of the ignored suggestions seem like no-brainers from a roadmap strategy standpoint, which makes Microsoft's radio silence all the more frustrating. If users are going to put in the time and effort to create, contribute to, and support UserVoice suggestions, Microsoft should put in more of an effort to respond to their community.

  5. GroupMe

    My comment: It bothers me that I cannot message my daughter, who has an ipod, with this app. I can message the rest of the family because they have phone numbers, but not the little one. I have to message her through facebook messenger or Instagram messenger. Which makes me heavily consider switching our way of messaging to the apps that can accommodate all of us.

  10. powerpoint spell check

    Spell check is not working properly in PowerPoint version 16.40 for Mac. I tested it with multiple nonsense words after noticing that several misspelled words in my presentation were not underlined in red. I contacted support and they tried to help me but in the end they said the software needs to be updated by the software engineers because it appeared I had everything set correctly in the settings and preferences.

  12. Los buzones compartidos deberían de recibir notificaciones cuando llega un correo

    A los usuarios que administran buzones compartidos no les llegan las notificaciones de correo nuevo. Esta característica debería estar disponible ya que es engorroso tener que bajar por el panel para ver si te han llegado mensajes a la bandeja de dichos buzones

  13. Planner

    To go back to Favorites and Other Plans, that was an easy way to split your PLANS by type e.g.
    - My Plans inside the office= Favorites
    - My Plans outside the office= Other Plans (Alphabetically assorted)
    Having Alphabetically assorted plans on your left dashboard allowed you to go through the all plans with 1 Click, now I have to do 3 clicks to go plan by plan, since you have to go to PlanHub everytime you want to go to the next plan.

  17. A video description between the classic Outlook.com and Outlook.com Beta

    Nowadays, old consumers are hesitant or doubtful when it comes to constant or sudden changes. One big example is the recent changes that were done for Outlook.com Beta. Though we are aware of the positive aspects that Beta can provide, consumers are still hesitant to use it since they're used to the old interface already. I personally use Beta and I find it much easier to use and the functions are more concrete and distinct. I can't compare my way of understanding to most of Microsoft's clients and consumers. I saw from various support pages and heard some reaction from…

  18. Add feature to Label fields of a view to show field names different from what set in a Sharepoint List

    When a field name in a list needs to be changed, so that - e.g. - the description becomes clearer for users to understand, we actually need to change the field name itself, as there is no possibility to "label" a field in a view, so that it APPEARS with a name, while it's "physical name" is different. This poses a major issue, because changing the field name impacts any feature connected to it (Powerapps, exports to other application's, connected MS-Access databases, ...).
    Can we add this basic feature, please?

  19. Distinguish between 2 copies of Office on the "Choose your Office" page when installing

    Please distinguish between 2 copies of the same version of Office on the "Choose your Office" page, when installing a new version. I can't tell which is the one I just bought, and which is already installed on my other computer, so I had to guess. Adding the purchase date would help. I worried I'd accidentally install the version that was already installed on my other computer.

  20. Allow customers to assign a mass sending mailbox or allow customer to modify (on a case by case basis) there user restriction limitation

    The idea is if you have a mailbox that is used as a service account for emailing, we should be able to choose if that mailbox is under the user restriction policy.

    The example is, we have a service mailbox that emails all our alarms to our ticketing system which gets blocked if a disaster hits. This means a min of an hours downtime to get this service back online.

    The other option is to give us a platform that can perform this service in the cloud or make it much more obvious that there is a restriction as this…
