  1. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. [OUTLOOK] Add "FROM" field to Quick Step reply

    In Outlook, there is currently no option to change the "From" field for a reply when creating a "Quick Step".
    The only way to do this currently is to actually create the Reply e-mail, and then manually change it every single time in the e-mail window.

    As someone who sends hundreds of e-mails "On Behalf Of" a generalized help desk e-mail address this would be a great quality of life feature.
    Currently I have to manually click the From field for every single email. It gets quite tedious. I have looked online and seen the possibility of creating a macro+template…

  5. 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

    Allow controlling show /hide the [Feedback] button freely in Office 365 services

  7. Allow OneDrive for business to connect to multiple Office 365 tenants.

    I work in a large corporate which has its own Office 365 tenant. My business unit has its own Office 365 tenant for data sovereignty reasons.

    Using Business to Business (B2B) I can configure the @corporate.com users to access SharePoint which is great. (Requires Azure Premium to do this via conditional access) Currently MIcrosoft doesn't support the @corporate.com account connecting to SharePoint on the @businessunit.com tenant using OneDrive. We know the connection is possible as it works with SharePoint through the browser.

    I would like Microsoft to allow OneDrive for Business to be able to comnnect to multiple tenants.

    I…

  8. Email notifications of Office 365 Service Health Incidents in GCC High

    Hello,

    I realize that email notifications sent to admins when there is a Service Health notification was only just recently completed toward the end of CY19, but this feature is needed in GCC and GCC High as well. Admins cannot be expected to constantly check the Service Health dashboard to see if there are any new incidents or outages.

    For a recent incident, our admins were informed of the incident by an increase in end users reporting issues. It would have been helpful for the admins to be aware that there was an incident going on ahead of time.

  9. In PowerApps add an Undo button to the text formatting ribbon on a rich text field when editing

    Users have requested an Undo button while editing a PowerApps form rich text field. This functionality was available in InfoPath rich text fields and was useful.

  10. Edit Yammer #joined Message-Template

    Yammer admins should be able to edit #joined message-templates.

    The current template is kind of bad.
    "has #joined the conet.de network. Take a moment to welcome Lastname,."

    At least it should be the complete name instead of "lastname, ."

  11. Office 365 new features arrival notification service...

    Office 365 new features arrival in your tenant notification service for tenant admins.

    Today Office 365 tenants admins are often struggling with the rapid pace that new Office 365 workload related features are deployed /rolled out and the fact that tenants admins at best are informed of an indicate time span for the global roll-outs of new features. To be able to notify tenant admins of new features, for the tenants they administer, I propose development & implementation of an Office 365 new features arrival notification service for tenant admins. The notification service could be a subscription based service which…

  12. 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.

  14. Please include details of any issues you may see after running Microsoft Support / Recovery Assistant. Microsoft サポート/回復アシスタントを実行後に表示さ

    When running the Microsoft Support and Recovery Assistant Tool (Sara), the problematic libraries and folders are not identified, so it takes time to identify the problem. I would like to make improvements so that you can get clear information on which item is the problem.

  16. Categories or colors to sort many accounts in the Microsoft Authenticator App

    I have configured more than 20 OTP accounts, and it's getting a bit confusing. I use the Authenticator App for private, LAB, customer and corporate accounts.

    I need categories or colors for the configured accounts so I can find the right one directly.

    At the moment I use this syntax ([Category]+[Description]) as workaround to sort my accounts into the following categories:


    • [CORP] = Corporate / Business Accounts

    • [LAB] = Lab / Testing Accounts

    • [C] = Customer Account

    • [PRIVATE] = Private Accounts

    For example: „[LAB] user:test1“ or „[PRIVATE] MS Account“

  17. Enhancements to Office365 integration with Canvas LMS

    The integration with Canvas LMS is now over 3 years old and is in need of further developments and improvements

    Here are five considerations:

    Ability to embed content directly from Office365 in the RCE

    It is not possible to embed a document in Office365 directly into a page. This features is possible in the Google Integration and the lack of progress with this continues to be a huge source of frustration for many users particularly K12. Interaction with a resource is so important and the ability to add a document into an iframe and embed on a page would be…

  18. Allow Outlook calendar to change default meeting time to 45 or 50 minutes

    To get a more effective meeting culture, it would have been nice if you could change default meeting time in Outlook calendar. Today it is only predefined time (5 min 6 min, 10 min, 15, min 30 min, and 60 min). This should be a setting you can put yourself.

  20. Embedded attachments in Excel are not coming over to SharePoint online when we upload that excel file to SP online.

    We are using O365 sites as our primary collaboration tool. But recently we found out that if we upload any excel file which has some embedded attachments like PDF,PPT etc then those attachments are not coming over to SharePoint when we upload Excel in the document library.
    This is an essential and very important feature as we (and many other o365 users across the glob) need to share such documents.
    Please let us know if there are any alternatives to make it working or please help by adding this as a feature as soon as possible.
