  1. allow to change one drive for business folder name in file explorer

    allow to change one drive for business folder name in file explorer for distinction.

    currently it is following this format: <OneDrive -> <Company Name> <1, 2, 3... 10>

    having just numbers as distinction is not enough to actually tell which onedrive folder is for which user.

    Please add this feature on your future releases of onedrive for business.

    Thank you.

  2. Forms: Option to Block Own Access to Survey Results

    I understand that the feature I am looking in for Forms doesn't exist. The issue is this:

    I would like to be able to send out a survey and have respondents provide responses, but restrict my access to viewing the results before a given day that I would select before sending out the survey. For example, for a Form sent to students to evaluate a teacher, I would like students to be able to submit responses, but only allow the teacher to view these responses after the final grades have been submitted (for ethical reasons). We can always send out…

  6. Authentication for O365, SharePoint Online & SP Designer not working

    We are experiencing authentication problems logging on to Office.com, SharePoint Online and accessing our O365 Tenant via SP Designer. We supply our credentials and are then asked for them again and again and then over again and are never able to authenticate. So far no solution for this has been found.

  7. EdbMails EDB to PST Converter for better conversion results

    Most exchange veterans who’ve had to deal with any sort of anomalies in the exchange database would recognize EdbMails – the pioneer recovery platform for all things exchange recovery, be it exchange database corruption or shutdown errors.

    EdbMails has recently released an update to its data recovery tool, let’s have a look at what it brings to the table :

    The deep scanning algorithm that EdbMails uses has been further enhanced to give a quicker and more responsive recovery experience than before.

    User interface changes to make the recovery process more seamless and rather straightforward so that even non technical…

  8. Allow Security groups in 0365 to administer permissions and manage resources. Time saving, only one group vs multi people

    Allow the IT Admin to create a security group and add members to the group that can administer/manage resources. Allows to save time by only adding a group as a delegate and not adding 10 people manually to each resource.

  9. Allow users to limit the amount of emails Outlook for Mac syncs locally when a gmail account

    I would like to be able to specify how much data Outlook downloads locally, to help keep my Outlook data files getting too big. This functionality is currently delivered by G Suite Sync for Microsoft Outlook when running on Windows. You know all of us MacBook Pro users have limited hard drive space to begin with. If you want to win us over we need this feature.

  10. fix bug that allows you to switch user assigned to Office 365 ProPlus account by using the Change License button

    Currently the Change License process doesn't work for Office 365 ProPlus apps. For instance, if you open Word > File > Account > Sign Out > Change License and enter another user to assign the product to it doesn't find any licenses available. The work around is to completely uninstall Office and do a fresh install of Office from the portal.office.com/account/#installs page. This complete install isn't a user friendly work around. Please fix the Change License process.

  13. Mitgliedern einer Dokumentenbibliothek erlauben, die Standardansicht zu definieren

    in jeder Dokumentenbibliothek wird die Standardansicht für alle Mitglieder fix vorgegeben
    diese ist nicht für alle Mitglieder, Besitzer und Gäste die ideale Ansicht auf die vorhandenen Dokumente einer Dok-Bibliothek

    jedem Mitglied soll es daher möglich sein, sich eine beliebe Ansicht als Standardansicht zu definieren

  17. Please provide clear literature for major retailers regarding the terms of O365 vs Perpetual

    Ever since Microsoft and other Software companies moved to more SaaS and subscription models, I've become more questioning of terms and conditions of subscriptions. This time last year, I purchased multiple O365 subscription keys off the shelf between retailers like Microcenter and Target. At times of purchase, I was assured by the sales staff, that while the subscription would give the latest Office updates, that if the subscription was not renewed, the products would still be available for use; just not receive updates past expiration. Today, I'm sitting with 3 personal systems throwing expiration notices and Excel won't so much…

  18. Outlook in latest O365 has a bug

    In the Outlook settings, under "Save Messages" there is an option for "When replying to a message that is not in the Inbox, save the reply in the same folder". I just upgraded from Office 2016 Pro, and that box is still checked in O365, but all of my sent items are going to the Sent Items folder instead of stating in the original folder despite this being set. Please fix this bug. It's an irritation.

  19. give ability to edit which fields appear on SharePoint event list details page so you can hide fields that contain private event info

    give ability to edit which fields appear on SharePoint event list details page so you can hide fields that contain private event info. For example if you have a leave calendar, we only want the approver and person submitting request to reason for the request. But others should be able to still see when person is off on calendar.

  20. Warn users if their reply is not on latest mail thread

    This is every day problem in Microsoft Outlook 2016 that I'm using. People reply over old mail thread instead of latest one. A simple solution would be to warn user if they reply over old thread and ask them whether they want to reply over latest.
