  1. Add the ability to hide the new "Recommended" section from the "Office 365 home page"

    A new "Recommended" section was recently added to the "Office 365 home page" between the apps listing and the recent documents listing. This really adds noise to my dashboard and makes it take longer to scroll down to my recent documents. I want to be able to hide this new section as I don't need or want it.

  2. Need ability to add Plan created in Planner to Teams as existing plan

    If you create a plan in planner, separately create a team in Teams.
    Try adding the existing plan to teams as a tab.
    The Add Existing Plan does not allow you to add it, it only allows you to add plans created from teams.

    This occurs even if the O365 groups associated with each have the same memberships.

    You can create a plan from teams but to copy the existing plan over you lose data. Or create a team from the plan and again you lose data so you end up keeping both which is confusing.

    Confirmed in Microsoft support…

  4. Remove Shared Mailboxes from showing up as team members on Microsoft Teams.

    I have been having an issue that since most of my users are using 2 or 3 different emails (mainly on different domains) all of their emails are showing up under Teams. I would like to only have the primary email to show up when starting a new chat.

  5. Microsoft Stream: Allow users to upload to a group but not the whole company

    Allow more control over who uploads videos by allowing an intermediate level to let users upload videos to their groups without uploading them for the entire company.

  6. The Excel [Trendline] graph has different calculation results depending on the version.

    The Excel [Trendline] graph has different calculation results depending on the version.
    Check the "Display R-squared value on chart" of "Trendline Options" when inserting the graph with [Add Chart Element]-[Trendline] in Excel. Then, the corresponding value displayed is different between Version 2005 and Version 2003.

    Requests that you resolve this issue and revert to a version prior to 2003.

  7. Allow locked files and track changes in the collaboration features of Word Online.

    We use templates to standardize our deliverables to clients. To do this, we lock the available styles and force track changes by protecting the file with a password. Unfortunately, this is not supported in Word Online. The online collaboration tools work very well, but really should support collaboration with these types of simple constraints. I get it if you exclude this from a lesser license, but if you are paying for the desktop licenses (ex. E5), you should not have limitations with the online product.

  8. Publisher available online

    Can we get publisher online in Office 365 just like we do for Word, Excel and PowerPoint? Then we need it available as a mobile app on phones and tablets

  9. Enable full (Locally Installed) 'Document Property Fields' functionality in Word Online

    Currently in Word Online 'Document Property Fields' are very limited:
    - Document property fields are not being populated from the connected SharePoint column.
    EXCEPTIONS:

     # If document is open in Word 2016 and saved, then Word Online will show updated fields
    
    # Fields can be viewed in 'Reading Mode' but once switched back to 'Edit', the fields will display as empty again.
    # Document Property Fields that are inside 'Shapes' get updated all the time like they should


    • Existing Document Property Fields, cannot be DELETED or EDITED from the document while in Word Online

  10. Improve filter function in Outlook Mobile App

    The filter function in the Outlook mobile version is limited to the inbox.
    It would be great if it would be possible to also filter in other folders!
    Please extend the filter function to all folders.

  13. Centralize all audit logs within the security and compliance centre

    Not all mailbox audit logs are recorded in the 'Audit log search' within the Security and Compliance Centre. Only the following are recorded here: Update,MoveToDeletedItems,SoftDelete,HardDelete. All other mailbox auditings can be retrieved from the Exchange Admin Centre 'Auditing' section. An example of what you won't see is: if a user creates an inbox rule to forward emails externally, this is only recorded in the EAC auditing section.

    All auditing should be available in one place, not split between different sections of the portal. Considering the Security and Compliance center is new and this is being pushed out, I don't see…

  14. Introduce a pause button during meeting recordings within the education teams

    It would be better to have a pause button while teaching so that when we break we don't have to stop the recording, we can pause it and pick it up again once the class is back to teaching.

  15. Allow users to have multiple office 365 accounts in the same browser

    I work and go to school full time. My work and school both use Office 365. In order to go between the two, I have to open a private browsing window and manually enter my login for each one, since the computer saves one login (work) over the other (school). This is inconvenient and something that I think should have been addressed early on. I know that with Google, I have multiple emails and they make it easy and intuitive to be able to switch between accounts. Cant find an easy solution for my problem. Thanks!

  16. Audit log reliability concern: Audit log search reports a successful authentication for a non-existent user

    Audit log search reports a successful authentication for a non-existent user. Please have this fixed as this causes confusion to users. The values indicate "ResultStatus":"Succeeded" and "LogonError":"UserAccountNotFound. The values it suggests is misleading.

  17. Restore ability to move or copy worksheets with data validation

    As of Office build 12624.20320, if one uses "Move or Copy" to copy worksheets from one workbook to another, and one of the cells therein has "List" type data validation whose source is another worksheet, the data validation in the new workbook is no longer copied. The only current workaround is to roll back to build 12527.20278 or earlier.

  19. Password protect a shared link via onedrive for business just like onedrive personal.

    Password protect a shared link via onedrive for business just like onedrive personal. This is a compliance requirement in the UK for many business who share sensitive information with clients.
