  1. Security trimming on Hub Site navigation

    As it stands, anyone with 'read' permissions to a hub site will see all links on its navigation bar, even if they have no access to the associated site. By applying security trimming, or even allowing audience targeting, we can ensure the links are only visible to the appropriate users, resulting in less frustrating "Access denied" messages for the users.

  2. Control icons that are displayed in the Office 365 portal

    The icons displayed at portal.office.com do not always work. In particular, the OWA icon fails with an error if OWA is disabled on premise and the user's mailbox is not in the cloud or if OWA has been disabled in the cloud. Need to remove the OWA icon in such cases.

  5. Raise hand feature in Teams Meetings

    To minimize interruptions in Teams meetings, it should be possible for all participants to signal that they want to speak by clicking a "Raise Hand" button. All other participants should be able to see who has requested to speak.

  6. Please Please Please create Microsoft office 365 for Linux

    Linux is only lacking one thing. Microsoft Office. I understand that having Linux with Microsoft office suit would possibly lower the amount of people using Windows. But the with the amount of people that use Linux in universities and businesses, this would be a cash flow for Microsoft. People are already on Linux would jump to have Microsoft's office suit on Linux, I have talked to many people that would love to have this software on Linux.

  7. Allow administrators to set a default time zone for new and migrated exchange users.

    Same as title, please allow for domain admins to set the default time zone for Exchange Online users. Many of our new and migrated users are having issues when logging in after an account migration or creation because they may "login" for the first time through an application such as Apple Mail. MS Mail or MS Outlook, which doesn't display the set time zone prompt. This also causes confusion when migrating a user and receiving an error or success message from 3 hours in the future.

  9. Office Web Add-ins does not work when editing a response on OWA

    Office Web Add-ins does not work when selecting the option "Edit the response before sending." The Add-ins are not present in the body of the email.

    For example, My Templates addin.

  10. Upload files into folders in teams on iOS app

    A requested feature in Teams on iOS device is the ability to upload files directly to folders in Teams. At this time, you may upload files in the conversation tab, but it will be uploaded directly in the root of the team. In what I request, you should be able to access the Teams file archive, go to the folder where you want to upload the file and then upload.

  11. About implement a feature which can set the link in “copy link”

    *English follows Japanese

    [リンクのコピー] の リンク設定を設定する機能を追加してほしい
    [リンクのコピー] をクリックした際に表示されるリンクの設定 ([すべてのユーザー] 、[テナントのユーザー] 、[既存アクセス権をもつユーザー] 、[特定のユーザー] ) の既定値を選択可能な機能を追加してほしい。
    ※ フルコントロールの権限者でも [アクセス許可を既に持っているユーザーのみこのリンクを使用できます。] が既定で表示されるなど
    ---------------------------------------------------
    I want to add a feature that allows me to select the default values for the links that appear when I click “copy link” (all users, tenant users, users with existing access rights, and specific users).
    Like even on the page of users who have full control permissions, it can also be displayed “Only users who already have permissions can use this link.” by default.

  12. Automatically updating External references (links) for excel workbooks stored on SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business

    At the moment, External references will not update until the source workbook is closed and reopened, this does not work for many people who need their changes to be live if they have multiple people working in a workbook at any one time, or for those that are testing values but do not want to commit to a change

  13. Hide/Mask answers for security questions for MFA

    Mask or Hide the answers when providing for the security questions for MFA just like when typing your password when logging in to Office 365. If there are people standing next to you, they can see the answers.

  14. Symbolic Links should be created when OneDrive is protecting important folders like Desktop, Pictures and Documents

    Adding the feature to protect important folders with OneDrive was a great idea. However, the current implementation can be confusing when saving files using various applications or using a command-line.

    For example, the c:\users\*username*\Desktop folder still exists separately from the c:\users\*username*\OneDrive\Desktop folder and can still be saved to. This creates instances of confusion where files may seem to be missing from OneDrive or may save to the incorrect location.

    To resolve this, I suggest when OneDrive protects important folders that the corresponding original folders turn into Symbolic Links to the OneDrive location.

  15. Allow users to export Sharepoint Wiki pages as word documents or PDF.

    OtherMost enterprise Wikis (like Atlassian Confluence) allow you to simply export your wiki page or pages as PDF/Word Documents. This would be a very useful addition to sharepoint wikis.

    Managing official documentation/processes/procedures/plans in word documents and attaching those word documents to a sharepoint site is a much more cumbersome process than simply making the wiki page the documentation. The information becomes much more accessible and you avoid having multiple versions of documents floating around as email attachments or on file shares etc...

    Our adoption of sharepoint wiki for this purpose is being limited by our inability to export documents to…

  16. 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.

  17. Remove "top results" from outlook.live email. Years of complaints and no response

    Why after several years do you continue to list top results. They are never the top results. Users have complained for years yet someone at microsoft thinks it should remain while giving the comment to leave feedback because you are driven by customer/user feedback. Give us the option to remove it.

  19. Allow for screen pop to a URL based on caller id (for CRM search based on phone number)

    Allow users to add a url that will pop up in a separate (or imbedded) window (browser), that allows for the addition of the caller ID from an inbound (or outbound) caller. Example: https://www.bing.com/search=(Caller ID) or https://www,MyCRM.com/Universal_Search=(Caller ID) OR (Caller Name)
    This would then open the URL in Edge or Chrome, etc. allowing the user to search for information based on the Caller ID (eg. WhitePages.com)

  20. The Teams WhoBot is nice, but could be so much more useful. I'd like to see it query the Delve profile

    The Teams WhoBot (Who) has a lot of potential. As it is today, it seems to use data posted to Teams for the "Who knows about..." function. The problem we have on the IT Support side of things are the people who post a lot about "SQL performance" are asking questions (and racking up the post count), and not subject matter experts. The experts rarely reply with "I know about SQL performance", and WhoBot really doesn't know who the experts are.
    We've also started exploring if we can leverage Delve's Profile - expertise, education (i.e. certificates), hobbies, skills, and projects.…
