  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. Button in desktop applications to open file in web application

    I came across an interesting case earlier. I have the full Office 365 ProPlus installation on my computer, but the people I am collaborating with only have access to the web application. I wanted to make sure what I was working on didn't contain any features that were not supported in the web application. I noticed that from the desktop apps, there is no button to quickly open a file in the web application and selecting the "open file location" button simply opened my OneDrive sync folder. It would be helpful to me and to others to have a one…

  3. Microsoft Stream - video feedback functionality

    a feedback functionality where we can design simple survey questions so users can rate videos in different categories (on top of 'like'), e.g. training effectiveness, video length / medium / quality, etc. It would be enough to have a star or numbers rating. In addition, it would be great to be able to pull this as a metric to find the best video per category.

  4. 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.

  5. Add Azure Functions as part of Office 365 suite

    Azure functions are better companions for implementing Sharepoint Webhooks. But as of now Azure Functions are part of Azure subscription only and users have to pay separately for them apart from Office 365 subscription.

    It would be better if Azure Functions are offered part of Office 365 suite as well to let the users adopt them even more

  8. Exchange Online - Block basic auth when MFA is enforce but user has no app passwords

    Block basic auth when MFA is enforce but user has no app passwords:

    Currently if you have an MFA enforced user (on the user level) - and the user has an app password - the basic auth call is blocked before it gets sent to the federated realm provider (ADFS, etc).

    However, if the user is MFA enforced but has NO app passwords - the auth call is forwarded to the federated realm provider - which even if a token is granted the authentication fails (because basic auth cannot perform MFA).

    In the second scenario, brute-force attempts can cause extranet…

  10. Fix SharePoint 2013 Workflows that cannot start 2010 Workflows on lists when user permissions are set below CONTRIBUTE at the site level

    If a user has READ access at the site level, they cannot initiate a SharePoint 2010 workflow that is started by a SharePoint 2013 workflow, regardless if the list has unique permissions or not. The user can only do so if they are granted CONTRIBUTE rights on the web.
    This problem becomes particularly apparent if we want to isolate user access to a specific list in a web by breaking permission inheritance from the parent. We would do so by granting the user CONTRIBUTE rights only on the list, and READ rights on the parent. The combination of 2013 workflows…

  11. Microsoft Teams forward calls to Call Queue or a Distribution Group

    Provide the ability for users to forward a call to a Call Queue or a Distribution Group within Microsoft Teams. Also the ability to choose 10-second forward instead of only 20-second. Would even help if an admin can create a Call Group in the admin center and have users add that instead of having to add to the call group in teams individually for each user.

  13. add support for putting images in a signature in the Outlook mobile app

    The company I work for has required that everyone in the company add a picture to their email signature. All of our external sales representatives currently use the Outlook client for their email, but due to this new requirement will not be able to anymore until this is allowed.

  15. Windows Explorer cannot make a lock icon for ptrotected AIP Office files

    If you make a protected files with AzureInformation Protection (AIP), in Windows Explorer you see a lock icon for a lot of file extension (example; TXT or Jpeg files) but not for Microsoft files (example: Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc.)
    Can I have the same experience for all files (we spoke here for security and I can see in the blink of an eye; what is protected in a folder)

  17. Reduced Functionality Mode

    オフラインの状態が 30 日間続くと機能制限モードに移行する動作をすると認識しているが、長期の出張で海外など、インターネット環境をどうしても確立することができない場所に行く必要になった際に、機能制限モードになる旨の警告が毎日表示されたり、実際に日数が来て機能制限モードになってしまった。

    オフラインでの利用を想定していないのはわかるが、法人利用を想定された製品である以上、インターネット環境が確立できない状況で運用しなければならないケースにも柔軟に対応できるようにしてほしい。
    サブスクリプションの有効期限内であればオフラインでも利用できるようにする機能や、機能制限モードに移行する期間を延長させる機能などを追加してほしい。

    また、Microsoft のサポートに連絡したところ、ライセンスの再認証の手順を案内されたが、ライセンス再認証をするコマンドはユーザーの端末にて実施する必要があり、ユーザーが操作する作業としては少し手順が複雑である。
    ライセンスの再認証の操作を管理者側で操作する機能も併せて追加をしていただきたい。

    When you need to go to a place where you can not establish the Internet environment such as overseas due to long-term business trip etc, I think that it will do 30 day and 30 days in offline state, A warning to the restricted mode is displayed everyday, or the number of days actually arrived and it became the function limit mode.

    I understand that it is not supposed to use offline, but since it is a product assumed for corporate use, I want you to be able to respond flexibly to…

  18. Users should get feedback about current status of issues being fixed by the development team

    When users make contacts to customer support and customer support answers that the issue is currently being fixed by the development team, users are unable to hear about current status of the issue which is being investigated by the development team.

    Support case number and issue number should be linked together. The user who made the contact, should be able to acquire information about the current status of the issue via Message Center etc..

    ----------------------------------------------------------

    サポートあてに問い合わせを行い、その結果、開発部門で検証中となった場合、その案件の進捗について問い合わせを行ったユーザーが知る手段がありません。

    サポートあてに行った問い合わせの番号と、開発部門で検証中となった案件の番号を紐づかせ、問い合わせを行ったユーザーは、案件の進捗状況をメッセージセンターなどから確認できることが望ましいです。
