  1. app launcher menu

    Allow users to unpin any app from the App Launcher menu. Currently the Outlook, OneDrive, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, SharePoint, Teams, and Yammer apps are permanently pinned to the launcher, and many of our internal users would prefer to remove the apps they don't typically use to make more room for the apps they do use to appear, as well as de-clutter this menu of items that individuals do not find useful in their daily work.

  4. 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.

  5. add a time block automaticaly between a resource being scheduled and when it is availabe to be scheduled again

    Would like to be able to create a policy or set of policies that would automatically block a resource from being booked for some period after a resource has been used. An example would be a Hotel office, automatically block off the resource for an hour or two to allow for proper cleaning before the resource is available for someone else to book. Policy could apply differently based on the resource type.

  6. Azure Active Directory admin center: Allow sorting report columns by date/ip/etc

    The Azure Active Directory admin center has useful reports in the "Risky Sign-ins" category, such as "Sign-ins from unfamiliar locations". However, it is sorted by last name,and last name only. One cannot easily correlate data and resolve items or mark them as false positives if the columns cannot be sorted by IP, date, or location.

    While one can download the report and open it with Excel, and then sort columns, it doesn't make the chore of resolving the items any easier.
    "Sign-ins from unfamiliar locations" is but one of these reports that can't be sorted. Other ones are "Impossible travel…

  7. PowerApps to be Published without additional licenses for users outside my organisation.

    I am an Office365 premium enterprise user. We started to use powerapps to streamline external suppliers/workers.
    However, our external users need to all buy licenses to USE the PowerApps we have developed with out content. Our users are all Office365 after we asked them to go there.
    We are considering abandoning the platform as the content we created can't be used.
    Requirement of licenses to Use/Run an app that we have already paid an license to create is bad practice Microsoft and is underhand double charging. Please address this critical issue.

  8. Automatically change the font to Italic on the formula entered in OneNote

    I would like you to re-implement the function to automatically change the font of the formula entered in OneNote into Italic, like the legacy version of OneNote did. Currently we cannot use Italic font when directly adding a formula by clicking the Formula button instead of choosing the option from the formula suggestions. If we follow the same instructions in Word, we experience the expected Italic font behavior, so I would like to do so in OneNote as well.

  9. Microsoft Teams Rooms Systems Unique Pin to Join Meeting on device

    Proposal:
    It would be nice if it was possible to set a unique pincode for each individual meeting on a Microsoft Teams/Skype Rooms Systems device. So the meeting creator recieved a unique pin number when they recieved the acceptance from the meeting room. This pincode could then be used to access to meeting from the Microsoft Teams Rooms device.

    As far as we can see the current setup has a security risk based around the following user case.

    User Case Example:
    A company board member invites numerous participants to a meeting regarding a sensative corporate matter. However for what ever…

  11. Allow Islands mode users to choose between Skype meeting and Teams meeting in Outlook mobile clients.

    It will be meaningful for Islands mode users to choose between Skype or Teams meeting from Outlook mobile clients. Currently, only one kind of meeting will appear in mobile apps depending on user's coexistence mode.

  13. Support the viewmodel=IComposeCalendarItemViewModelFactory or any other generic way to create a calendar item from url

    Since a long time we have been using the url https://{Exchange domain}/owa?viewmodel=IComposeCalendarItemViewModelFactory to directly open the popup to start composing a new appointment.

    Recently this seems to stop working for Exchange Online. We did found an article on an alternative (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/archive/blogs/carloshm/how-to-compose-a-new-message-or-event-and-populate-fields-in-office365#comment-1645), though they all open the full calendar app instead of the popout version.

    Provide a way(pop-out) to create a new calendaritem from an url without the full OWA interface.

  14. PST File on OneDrive Doesn't Sync after closing outlook and/or creates New Versions

    I have my PST file on one drive so I can open it on different devices when needed. I don't expect it to sync while opened but to sync after I close immediately. But it stays there saying "High network traffic" and doesn't do anything until I reboot or close one drive and re-open it. Microsoft support claims the file is trying to be synced continuously so it causes this. So I tried this one Google Drive and it works just fine. As soon as the file is closed it syncs.

    Also sometimes when opening the file on another device…

  15. Check all files permission when a folder is deleted !

    In a SharePoint document library, in Office 365, a user can delete a folder if he has the collaborate rules in it. So it's, but if there is one more files int it without permission for this user, this one can delete the folder and all files ares saved in it.
    It's necessary to prevent massive deletion and human error, to inform or block the user, when he delete a folder which contain files with no permission for he.

  16. 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…

  17. Allow Guest presenters in Live events

    Often we have guests presenting part of a webinar to our employees. currently Teams live events does not allow external parties to present. this means we have to switch from live events to teams meetings to conduct these webinars.
    Can external parties be allowed to be invited as presenters for live events.

  18. Make Office Add-ins in our tenant independent from optional connected experiences setting

    Forms and Find Time are services of which data resided in our own 365 tenant. Therefor we'd like to be able to leverage their respective add-ins in the office applications like Outlook and PowerPoint.

    Bounded by GDPR we needed to disable the 'optional connected experiences' in Office, as Bing Search in PowerPoint and other public services are subject to different terms as the once agreed upon in the Microsoft Online Service Terms.

    When disabling Optional Connected Experiences all add-in are disabled, even the ones subject to the Microsoft OST like FindTime.

    Can you change the disablement of Optional Connected Experiences…

    In Flow, everything displays UTC. So anything requiring approval is reporting back the UTC date/time, which is wrong. Please make flow follow date and time zone set for our tenant or let us configure the list to use the correct values

  20. Add version number from SharePoint Library to Excel Header or Footer...

    Many corporations worldwide require that documents show version numbers (revision numbers) on them for ISO certification. With this in mind I'd like to have the ability to print the SharePoint document library version number and approval date on Excel files in the header or footer automatically.
