  3. Add the functionality for the ADFS ESL Banned IP list to auto subscribe to a 365 RBL list for malicious IPs

    Can you add the functionality for the ADFS ESL (External Smart Lockout) Banned IP list to auto subscribe to a 365 RBL list for malicious IPs. This will stop the need for Admins to have to manually add the Banned IPs to the ADFS ESL Banned IP list.

  4. Enable UK users to use date format dd/mm/yyyy in one drive and excel online.

    Hi,

    Can you please enable UK users to use date format DD/MM/YYYY as standard in Office 365 (especially Excel and Onedrive). I thought O365 will provide an excellent solution to our collaboration and file storage needs, but I have now had to delay/ put on hold deployment after discovering that dates automatically default to US format mm/dd/yyyy. I am aware that it is possible to display dates which are inputted in US format in the UK format, but these dates need to be inputted in US format. That does not come naturally to the team and and causes issues with…

  5. VBA capability to automate Microsoft edge

    Currently there's no solution to automate tasks in Microsoft edge with VBA. Having a "reference" option within VBA to automate Microsoft edge would be well received. (No selenium driver does not work).

  6. Outlook Desktop Recipient Cache Options

    In Outlook Desktop, please add an option to allow the user to bypass the Recipient cache, or to disable it completely, or to clear the Recipient Cache (the "Empty Auto-Complete List" option DOES NOT empty the recipient cache.) The recipient cache causes duplicate contacts to be displayed in search results, when you may only have one contact in your Contacts folder.

  7. Please reduce the sync delay between Outlook to OWA

    Any changes from Outlook calendar take 2-3 minutes to reflect. Can you please reduce the sync interval to a shorter time?

  8. Give customers more advance notice when the Office 365 URLs and IP addresses are going to be updated.

    Hello,

    It is very difficult for customers (especially in the government space) to quickly make changes to their networking and firewalls when we update the O365 URLs and IP addresses. We have given customers several ways to monitor these changes (RSS, Web Service, Flow, Rest API Search, script, etc.), but they need more advance notice when we are going to change something.

    Here is some direct customer feedback:
    Microsoft is making an endpoint change and is expecting the customer to automate everything on their side to implement that change on the fly (firewall, routes, etc.) In our environment the network…

  9. Add native Outlook contact to Outlook phone app

    Hello, I am using outlook since 2004 and have thousands of them. No other contact app is fully compatible to outlook contacts when factoring categories and various fields. The way we have it set up in or business, many contacts are companies; in the individual company contact we have various personal in various fields according to their position in the company. Due to that, Outlook contacts never did a good job integrating into Google or iPhone contacts. Back in the days, I even got a Windows phone hoping it will provide a good integration with Outlook contacts. It did not.

  10. Interface to receive/send fax messages using Skype for Business Online Service Numbers

    There are several ideas on the fax topic, but non is requesting a "native Office 365 cloud fax solution" for incoming/outgoing fax messages using Skype for Business Online service numbers.

    Even in 2018 the capability to send/receive fax messages using a local phone number is important to many businesses. Third-Party solutions have a requirement to keep Exchange on-premises in use and there run Exchange in Hybrid Mode, or provide cloud fax not offering a local phone number.

    Providing an Office 365 integrated solution with the capability to assign different local (per city, per country) service numbers would enhance the service.…

  11. Bypass MFA authentication in Outlook Web App for delegated mailboxes with full access

    We are using Outlook Web App and exchange online from Office 365. Some mailboxes uses delegation feature with send as and full access from user A to user B. This works fine.

    But if we activate MFA authentication on user B then MFA authentication gets active if user A want to access Mailbox of user B via Outlook Web App. In this case MFA authencitation should be bypassed, because user A is already authenticated with his own credentials.

  12. Microsoft Stream: transcript to other languages, as portuguese (PT-PT and PT-BR)

    Today is only possible transcript a video to English and Spanish. It should be possible transcript to other languages as well. If Microsoft has Azure translation services that already translate content to a lot of laguages, I don't understand why is not available in the transcription service of Microsoft Stream yet.

    Not able to Preview and print the Whole Document using Outlook 2016.
    The image embedded in to the email is only showing up about 25% and printing that only instead of full image.

  14. Microsoft Teams BusyOnBusy screen time

    When you call someone who is busy in line and you have the policy "busyonbusy" enabled, the screen that shows "this user is currently in a call" is shown to short.
    The screen shows up for about 1 second and it is not enough to read. It should be around 3-5 seconds, to be read.

  15. RMS Compatibility with Outlook recipients outside the tenant. Outlook universal compatibility for reading or opening RMS Encrypted Emails.

    Currently, there are only specific Outlook versions (see link below) that could read inbound encrypted emails. This is a big limitation for Office 365 tenant who are sending encrypted emails to external users. We don't get to decide the recipients of our emails so we cannot dictate for them to have specific subscriptions or Office versions. Most clients / customers use Office 2016 Home or Office 365 Business, which means that most IRM emails.

  16. show Teams calls and chat message when in different tenant

    When a user is logged in to a different than his corp Teams Tenant as a guest, incoming calls or chats are not show.
    If Teams should replace Skype for Business as Chat and PSTN this is a No GO!
    Even when just working as guest on some content somewhere else the user is cut of from calls and chats in his company!
    At least notify about incoming private chat and calls within the own tenant when working in another one to be able to reply or answer.

  18. Create SharePoint Online news link (Repost page) from a Flow step

    We would like to be able to create a repost page from a Flow step.

    A possible use case example would be when a Tweet is created it triggers the creation of a repost page on a SharePoint Online site so that the tweet appears alongside the site newsfeed.

  19. Allow for searching int Microsoft Teams wiki pages.

    Microsoft Teams can search through documents and conversations. It cannot however search through the wiki that I have created for my team. We updated and placed all of our companies policy updates only to find out that there is no way to search for content. How can we get the contents to be searchable?

  20. Fix Word 365 / 2016 typing lag / freezing / no response issue!!

    This issue has been posted all over the internet and has been discussed here extensively as well. The discussion disappeared a few days ago (I wonder why??).

    Here's a snapshot of the discussion dating from last year (obviously not showing the latest comments):
    https://web.archive.org/web/20171014024523/https://office.uservoice.com/forums/285186-general/suggestions/17468281-solve-the-word-365-2016-slow-typing-issue

    The bug seems to be related to high-resolution devices.

    A lot of users have reported that none of the suggested fixes help:
    -- disable graphic accelaration
    -- safe mode
    -- update graphics driver
    -- disable mark-up

    Why isn't there a fix yet for an issue that has been known for years?
    It is really really really…
