  1. Explain why UPN mismatch between AD user and AAD counterpart works and doesn't work

    Explain why UPN mismatch between AD user and AAD counterpart works when user is created and initially synchronised, but re-creating the sync is not possible after a user recovery (i.e. loss of sync between the two) unless the UPN on the AD side is set to the email address (i.e. a match to AAD). Annoyingly, ADConnect doesn't even flag up that there is a mismatch.

  3. Excel for Mac, Hovering over Function in Formula Library for Fn Purpose

    When in Excel for Mac, there should be the same feature as on Windows where if you hover over a Function in the Formula Library, it should let you see what that Function does. Instead I have to go into the details of every single one to try and differentiate. It would be much easier.

  4. add a way to make the web version of Word or Excel open instead of the desktop version by default.

    Our desktop licenses expired. We have office online however if we double click on a document it opens the unlicensed version that doesn't work. To open a file, you have to open the online version of word for example, then click on upload and then search for your file. It just takes too long.

  5. Bug - Shadow Box Button When No Link Applied to Global Navigation with Managed Metadata Navigation

    The navigation in new UI pages has a shadow button box around the main link if no link is applied in the managed metadata navigation term store, in the "Simple link or header". This is ideal for when no hyperlink is required. My workaround for this is to add a hyperlink to our main site, another fix I found was to select in the term store "Term-Driven Page with Friendly URL". This causes a hyperlink to a page not found though, but it does not give the strange shadow button on the global navigation links.

  8. Enable redirection of save location for OneNote to users' redirected home folders on a network

    We have users who could potentially add confidential business data to OneNote so we need to be able to ensure that OneNote is not saved to the cloud, but redirected to all users' home folder directories. We need to be able to control this via group policy or similar and not depend on each individual to make a manual change

  11. Create a Stacks feature in Outlook

    Stacks would allow you to save a copy of messages that you want to refer to later, without having to create a folder or rules. Select the Stacks feature and then use the Stacks view to see the messages.

  13. Make it possible to export Outlook calendar data inputted over years for use in another program.

    I have been using Outlook as my work calendar for about 20 years, but every time I try to export calendar items, it crashes Outlook. I've tried the pst scan program, I've tried safe mode, I've tried new computers/new accounts, and the crashing still occurs; I've tried helpdesk and they say there is no solution. Why punish loyal customers by failing to address such a basic compatibility issue?

  15. SharePoint Request Sign Off doesn't show who signed off

    Request Sign Off just showed up in modern document libraries. The workflow seems to work fine and the emails look great. My problem is the only thing that shows up in SharePoint is the Sign Off status just shows Approved. There is no information about who signed off, when it was signed off, and it doesn't show the comments. I would hope Microsoft will add those columns of information to the "All Documents" view.

  16. enter in a comptition with Google...

    Google has a monopoly on the 'YouTube' concept. Google originally offered a for free service with basic limitations. Now it's littered with advertisements and they will kill your site if 'God forbid' you step on one of their money making schemes.

    I suggest MS develop an identical site named "YourTube" (example only), offering a free upload experience. Include warnings similar to TV regarding content, if flagged for lack of control 'state the reasons for removal'. Also copyright infringements may require the pulling of material, if so site the reason as well. Over the years some exe. will see a way…

  19. Implement spelling/dictionary support for additional digraph ligatures/graphemes such as “ij/IJ”

    Certain digraph ligatures and graphems are already supported in Office 365, such as “œ/Œ” in “sœur” (French), and “ff, fi, fl, ffi, ffl, ſt” in “first” or “suffix” (English). While others are not, such as “ij/IJ” in “zijn” or “bijzijn” (Dutch), and “æ/Æ” in “archæology” (English).

    It would be nice to have all of these accepted.

  20. When creating a calendar event that you can see if people youre inviting are already busy without having to share their calendars out.

    In an organization with no admin staff that one user could book an appointment in a public folder calendar and know whether the person that will be attending the event is busy at that time, like when you try to email someone in your organization that has out of office set it prompts before you send the email.
