  1. Fix translation mistakes Dutch activity log

    There are several translation errors in the Dutch activity log.

    Sometimes it translates as it should, for example:

    Gebruiker heeft Bestand gemaakt in map
    Gebruiker heeft Bestand verwijderd uit map

    On other times at is a translation error, for example:

    Gebruiker hebt het bestand bewerkt. ("hebt" should here be "heeft")

    please fix these issues

  2. 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?

  3. Teams chat. Please improve the exteranal chat communication

    Teams chat. Please improve the external chat communication.

    When an internal user wants to CHAT (using the chat tab) with someone externally to his organization what happens is:


    • If this external user has already Teams you can speak with him directly.

    • If he doesn't. The internal user receives a message like this "We are unable to set up the conversation because the contact you entered wasn't found. Chat not available". So the internal user has to invite this user as a guest using "Teams" tab and once the user is federated and categorized as a Guest user you can start…

  5. 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.

  6. Rollback of PDF Annotation feature bar in OneDrive iOS app to version 10.34.11 in version 10.38.2

    The new annotation feature bar that displays when annotating PDF's within the OneDrive iOS app (version 10.38.2) is half the functionality of version 10.34.11. If the annotation cannot be brought back, can they reintroduce the ability to add text. \Not having the ability to add text onto documents renders the solution half useless!

  7. Allow users to edit PDF's directly in SharePoint and OneDrive

    We have several customers who work in PDF's, not in word. There is no easy way in SharePoint to edit in PDF's. Customers can easily "edit in word", but cannot edit a PDF. They need to open it (which at first defaults to a browser and not a PDF), download it, work on it (offline and out of SharePoint and out of the "SharePoint Online" product) save changes manually, and re-upload. This whole process goes against what Microsoft advertises in terms of easily accessible,work from anywhere online pitch, and brings people away from your product and towards adobe instead. For…

  8. Add Zoom connector to Microsoft Flow

    As Microsoft is planning to deprecate Skype for Business in coming year, can Zoom Connector be added to the supported list of connectors for Microsoft Flow ?

  9. offer a "dark mode" for Office 365

    with the latest version of macOS getting props for the "dark mode" its rolling out, it would be great to see Office fit into this visual scheme. Dark ode is great for night time work...and currently Office will look painful in that setting.

  10. Keep tenant data even after deprovisioning of all subscriptions

    If you had an O365 Subscription and had a lot of work done and saved on Sharepoint/Onedrive you would know how detrimental it would be if you lost that data.

    Why is the data deleted once the subscription is deprovisioned? Why isn't the data just stored indefinitely?

    A suggestion would be to start permanently holding tenant data even after the deprovisioning of the license so that in-case someone needs that data, they can re-purchase subscriptions and get all their data back.

    Or at least add a service where someone could be able to pay a fee to recover data in…

  11. Owner of existing team cannot add Planner

    When using Microsoft Teams I am the owner of existing Teams. When I try to add Planner to the Team I get the error "Failed to create the plan"

    When logging in as a regular user I can add Planner without issue. This is very inconvenient and should be fixed.

  12. 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.

  13. Start providing UserId for all the Audit activities

    Background - UserID appearing as Unknown in Management Activity API Initial Response

    We are seeing records with user ID as "Unknown" (sample event below). This is causing our detection algorithms to go haywire. Per schema, this field is supposed to be under Common Schema ( https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/office/office-365-management-api/office-365-management-activity-api-schema#common-schema ) and guaranteed to appear for all records of Management Activity API.

    From the instances in the audits where this occurs, it’s more that the information is not presented by the client since the client request in these is actually anonymous. It is seen in backend logs that there is a pattern where the…

  14. 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.

  16. The task follow up flags are too similar now.

    The update that just went into effect changed a lot of visual UI pieces. One of these it the colorization of the task follow up flags. The due today flag is not the solid color that it used to be and now is too similar to the other flag colors to stand out very well. Due today flags should visually stand out from the others, and now they don't.

  17. Creating a gantt chart for Outlook tasks

    Outlook is our main tool when it comes to keeping track on tasks and to share tasks in our team. But it would be even more great (and less time-consuming) if we could create a gantt chart in order to get an better overview of tasks, deadlines etc.

  18. 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

  19. Introduce a lobby in the education teams where the learners can wait until the class starts

    It would be great if a teacher could have learners go to the lobby when they log into the class, and then when the teacher joins they can come in from the lobby. It would also be helpful for the meeting to then end when the teacher says "end of class" or something similar
