  1. We’d like to use Sharepoint to share folders with external folks and want to investigate security options. I know we can share with people b

    We’d like to use SharePoint to share folders with external folks and want to set a policy so a folder that’s shared with a person in one organization can’t be shared with somebody in another organization. This is to avoid a situation where a single folder is shared with Company A and Company B, which could allow somebody from Company B to see Company A’s data in the folder. I’m thinking this policy would kick in once we share with an external user. It would set an ACL on the folder once it’s shared with user@companya.com so only people from…

  4. Add Accomplishments to My Analytics

    Many times employees need to write a monthly report detailing what they have accomplished for the month. Most of my tasks I confirm are complete with an email to the stakeholders. It would be great if Microsoft's AI could see these and show a list of completed tasks and how well I'm doing compared to previous months.

  5. Teams - Add contact's complete list of AD telephone numbers

    When i add a contact in Teams (from our directory) i only get one PSTN number,
    If i add the same contact via Outlook GAL (and sync contact with Teams) i get the full telephone list from AD (work, home, fax, mobile etc). Therefore adding contacts via outlook is the only workable way to ensure teams is aware of all phone numbers - but this is VERY clunky..

    For some customers, using teams as a telephony client, Teams>PSTN is the primary contact method, so we need all the telephone numbers. (we dont just do TEAMS<>TEAMS calling).

    Request: Please ensure Adding…

  7. Bug with selecting multiple calendars when left calendar pane is not pinned


    1. Switch to calendar view in Outlook

    2. The left "pane" which shows two months of dates plus the list of shared calendars should be unpinned. That is to say, it should be reduced by default.

    3. Click the open arrow at the top of the pane to get it to open.

    4. Click one shared calendar. It will be added to the view.

    5. Click a second shared calendar. Instead of adding it to the view, the pane will close.

    6. You must reopen the pane to add the second calendar. If you try to add any more the bug will continue to happen for…

  8. Remove password autorefresh for Safari users

    User is allowed less than one second to enter password before autorefresh. On next autorefresh password is automatically added and again user has less than a second to confirm. This makes login on Safari iPad mini virtually impossible. Please fix so I can access my email. Thank you.

    PS I am unsure if you can fix this issue or if it is a virus. Please investigate.

  9. Slow!!!!!!

    Outlook 365 web platform is unbelievably slow.
    Consistently slow, on multiple computers slow, multiple times, multiple locations, slow, slow, slow.
    slow to open. slow to select new message. slow to select recipient. slow to header of message. slow to attach. slow, slow, slow, mega slow. very frustrating. I clicked send a message, fed my cat, fixed a snack, then came back to my computer. talk about slow.
    Gmail blows it out of the water.
    you better catch up!

  11. Open list item in new tab instead of right side pane

    Can you please allow users to open list item in new tabs instead of the right side detail pane? This is a struggle for users that are trying to update/edit multiple items at once.

  15. Excel cannot update results of formulas linking to another workbook unless user open that workbook at the same time. F9 won't work.

    Currently, user can only open all linked files to ensure all formula results are updated in the open excel documents, otherwise user must go to each cell, press F2 and then Enter, to trigger a manual update. F9 or Calculate Now would not work. It is not related to Automatic or Manual setup in Options.

  18. Reduce the minimum balance needed to trigger an autocharge of Communication Credits

    The current $50 minimum balance for an autocharge to be triggered is quite high for a small organisation that doesn't receive many 1-800 calls, for example.

  19. Insect Control Services

    The online reviews are critical in this case, and this is why you should visit the internet and see how various pest exterminators have been rated and reviewed by past clients, and it is only wise to pick one that has been rated highly by previous clients. You can also get recommendations from family and close friends who have used the services of a particular Insect Control Services company in the past. Lots of people think they're terrifying, while others find them cute and cuddly. "Rats and mice have been around long before we built cities and towns in this…

  20. Don't remove features from the 2016 Excel perpetual version. (IFS no longer supported)

    Removing features from the perpetual version is not right. The Microsoft Office senior tech claimed I never should have had it with 2016. It worked until this week (3/19). The IFS feature is now only on the subscription version.
