  1. Complain Microsoft company

  3. Allow SSO for test and prod for enterprise applications

    We use SSO for various hosted enterprise applications but you can only configure one environment. We have test and prod from our hosted provider would be great if we could setup SSO for both environments.

  4. Chat participants in Office 365 (Excel) get duplicated on page refresh

    We were using the chat feature when working on an Excel file on Office 365 and we get re-added to the chatroom each time we refresh the page. We are a team of 4, but the chat showed that 12 people were in the conversation, 5 of which were myself, due to this duplication that occurs on page refresh.

  5. implement also direct save with office when working on a document on your harddrive

    I like the direct save to Sharepoint...saves a lot of lost work. But why not also implement it when working offline or working with a document on you harddrive?

  6. I would like to thank you for excellent customer service

    I would like to thank you for the excellent Outlook Android customer service by Julius. I have a Chromebook, and most apps, although in the Google Drive store, were not properly tested. Julius understood that he had an opportunity not just to serve a customer, but work together to improve the overall Outlook offering. I have been involved in cusotmer service in some fashion for over 35 years and see myself as being quite demanding. You can tell that Julius really cares, and people like him ensure customer loyalty.

  8. When you open the Calendar in a new tab, keep all existing settings (such as other people's calendars that have been added).

    When you open the Calendar in a new tab, keep all existing settings (such as other people's calendars that have been added).

    Additionally, when I have many people's calendars open, if I hit the "back" button on the mouse, it removes all calendar settings.

    Additionally, if I open a new e-mail from the taskbar notification, it removes all calendar settings.

    Additionally, the "add @yourdomain.com to safe senders list" is never saved.

    I have uninstalled outlook completely due to these issues, and your support/help staff have been entirely unhelpful.

  10. Employ support staff that dont contradict each other

    Having seen MS now offer both forms, and quizzes. Contacted to ask how to create an online quiz where we can email respondents the answers based on their responses! Relatively easy right? Completed it in Google forms in less than an hour!
    MS?
    5 phone calls over 4 days and 3 follow up "can we close the ticket?" Calls all offering conflicting advice some saying have you tried survey monkey others saying you can but I dont know how, others saying no but you could buy this instead!

    Waste of time

  13. Excel long numbers bugs - fix copy and paste PLEASE

    Copying and pasting log numbers (UPC codes, excel still cant handle these after 20 years) completely ignores formatting and pasting rules. It pastes some scientific formula for every number no matter the formatting or paste options. The only way to get the numbers to show correctly is to double click in each cell, then the real number is shown. When you have over 1000 cells, this can take quite a while to correct. This has been an issue since Excel 97, please fix it.

  14. Want to backup sticky notes using data export from OneNote application on a mobile device (iPhone)

    I tried to export sticky notes’ data by going Setting > Data access in OneNote app (iPhone). But I saw a message saying that ”Sticky notes are synced with Exchange and included in a mailbox. Please contact a tenant admin about data access.” So, I couldn’t access the data. If you are an ESO admin, you are able to access all data including sticky notes of OneNote from EXO. I would like to request a feature that can export individual data from OneNote. Also, request better user interfaces because the messages after tapping menus or settings are difficult to understand.

  15. not happy outlook view changed after last update

    after last outlook 365 update message view permanently changed in a BAD way. the quick buttons "reply", "reply all", "forward", etc were just above the message. Now they are inconveniently placed in boxes to the far right of the message forcing a more extreme mouse movement. hours with microsoft support was unable to solve.
    microsoft should think long and hard when such changes are made that make usage more inconvenient. at a minimum always allow us (the users) the flexibility to put it back the way we want it.

  16. Expand Outlook Permissions

    With an increasing SME and virtual working I would like to see outlook permissions for inbox be expanded.
    I work regularly with other small businesses who want to give me access to their inbox to manage but as I understand it if your not of the same organisation/same exchange server this is not possible.

  18. Specify an icon for moving an app window.

    With more and more bells and whistles being added to the top-most ribbon, it is increasingly harder to find a spot to grab a window and move it to another part of the desktop. A consistent icon, like a hand, would allow users to know exactly where to put their mouse to grab a window and move it around the screen. Perhaps the hand icon could also transition a maximized (non-movable) window to a smaller, moveable one.

  19. To send someone an email from Teams, FYI, Since the Channel has its own email address, let them reply to it.

    If I give my teams channel address to someone outside of our organization they can send me an email directly to that channel, it should work the way if I initiate the conversation to him he should be able to simply reply to the channel I sent it from.

  20. could offer the option to assign a free/busy/available flag for event/s in external calendars


    • I have an external calendar imported in Outlook

    • This calendar contains meetings which I attend.

    • This calendar/meetings are from another group/organisation/club, therefore, where not created from directly in my native kalendar

    • however, my native calendar/Outlook cannot know that these events mean that I ' going to be absent, thus any meeting invitations theat collide with the events, cannot be rejected automatically.
