  1. Include a return path in Out of Office answers, else the DKIM / DMARC check fails

    There might be a legit reason for not having a return path, mail loops or whatever that I'm not aware of.. What I discovered was that we got a lot of DMARC failures and it was legit mail about "I'm out of office" the email DKIM check failed due to the missing return path, if that could be added I would not have the "dmarc failure spam" about our legit emails.

  2. Allow locked files and track changes in the collaboration features of Word Online.

    We use templates to standardize our deliverables to clients. To do this, we lock the available styles and force track changes by protecting the file with a password. Unfortunately, this is not supported in Word Online. The online collaboration tools work very well, but really should support collaboration with these types of simple constraints. I get it if you exclude this from a lesser license, but if you are paying for the desktop licenses (ex. E5), you should not have limitations with the online product.

  3. Enable full (Locally Installed) 'Document Property Fields' functionality in Word Online

    Currently in Word Online 'Document Property Fields' are very limited:
    - Document property fields are not being populated from the connected SharePoint column.
    EXCEPTIONS:

     # If document is open in Word 2016 and saved, then Word Online will show updated fields
    
    # Fields can be viewed in 'Reading Mode' but once switched back to 'Edit', the fields will display as empty again.
    # Document Property Fields that are inside 'Shapes' get updated all the time like they should


    • Existing Document Property Fields, cannot be DELETED or EDITED from the document while in Word Online

  4. Improve filter function in Outlook Mobile App

    The filter function in the Outlook mobile version is limited to the inbox.
    It would be great if it would be possible to also filter in other folders!
    Please extend the filter function to all folders.

  6. Centralize all audit logs within the security and compliance centre

    Not all mailbox audit logs are recorded in the 'Audit log search' within the Security and Compliance Centre. Only the following are recorded here: Update,MoveToDeletedItems,SoftDelete,HardDelete. All other mailbox auditings can be retrieved from the Exchange Admin Centre 'Auditing' section. An example of what you won't see is: if a user creates an inbox rule to forward emails externally, this is only recorded in the EAC auditing section.

    All auditing should be available in one place, not split between different sections of the portal. Considering the Security and Compliance center is new and this is being pushed out, I don't see…

  7. Microsoft Teams give a list of attendee's, not people invited.

    Skype was integrated with One Note and you could save a list of attendee's. Why doesn't Teams record the list of attendee's for the meeting originator?

  8. Password protect a shared link via onedrive for business just like onedrive personal.

    Password protect a shared link via onedrive for business just like onedrive personal. This is a compliance requirement in the UK for many business who share sensitive information with clients.

  9. Forms completed in preview mode should not be counted as response

    If users take too long to complete a form in preview mode, the form may time out and freeze, and users need to start over. Forms completed in preview mode should not have their responses counted - this would allow proper testing and would have highlighted the fact earlier that the users were not using the correct methodology for completing a published form.

  10. Office online needs configurable settings to open files as view or edit mode by default.

    After a recent change by Microsoft now all files open online in edit mode by default.

    We need an option to set the default behavior of files and how they open in edit or read only by default.

    I do not appreciate the fact that Microsoft seems to have rolled out the change to open files in edit mode by default without a configurable setting for admins or otherwise. There was no obvious communication from Microsoft on this topic either (at least that I've been able to find).

    There are a few other ideas already posted in other categories pertaining…

  14. Allow making amendments to appointments without sending notifications

    Sometimes I'd like to be just able to make small amendments in the Outlook calendar appointment, such as fixing spelling mistakes and such, and I'd rather not have to send email to all attendees every single time I make such changes in the calendar. There used to be an option in Outlook 2007 to "save" appointment without sending messages, but it seems that it disappeared in the later versions? Would be great to have it back!

  15. Audit log reliability concern: Audit log search reports a successful authentication for a non-existent user

    Audit log search reports a successful authentication for a non-existent user. Please have this fixed as this causes confusion to users. The values indicate "ResultStatus":"Succeeded" and "LogonError":"UserAccountNotFound. The values it suggests is misleading.

  16. Calculate time required to read emails

    It would be helpful for email to calculate the time required time to read them and offer this on the UI of Outlook on the Web and Desktop too.

    The same way as its done by different blog engines on the web.

    I'd expect a "3 minutes to read" text as a yellow banner or something.

    Probably this would integrate nicely with MyAnalytics.

  19. Restrict Office 365 account association with Windows 10

    If an Office 365 account is associate with Windows 10, you might not be able to sign in Office clients, IE, or Edge successfully after changing the Office 365 password due to the account association.
    So, we would like to ask adding a feature that restricts Office 365 account association with Windows 10 or improving the sign-in behavior to be completed successfully after password change.
    Also, we would like to ask adding a warning on the prompt when signing in Office client, because if a user select “Yes” when signing in Office clients, the account will be associated with Windows…
