  1. Office 365 support for Windows Server 2019

    With the recent announcement @ Ignite that Office 365 would not be supported on Windows Server 2019, I’d like to request that decision to be reversed. As a long time RDSH admin this is a poor decision and would require using Office 2019 to connect to a cloud mailbox. Essentially requiring a double license for Office functionality in RDSH.

  2. Linux support

    I will in the future use both Linux and Windows pc at work. The lack of real linuxsupport is a problem. Please support LInux in onedrive/sharepoint.
    Hopefully also a office 365 package for linux would help

  3. Office 1904 - files on redirected folders wont open when offline

    We use redirected folders for users desktops, these are redirected to a server 2012 R2 share. When users are not on the network offline files allows them to open the files on their redirected desktop.

    We are using windows 10 1803 and 1809.

    If a user has Microsoft office 1904 or later installed when they try to open a file from the desktop when offline they get the message "Sorry, we cant open \\Filename because the server isnt responding" This happens for all office files.

    The files are there and can be opened with other programs, e.g a csv file…

  6. Add shifts tab to Teams channel

    With the addition of the new Shifts app within teams directly there is no mechanism to then display relevant shift details to a channel directly.

    The shift information should allow for addition to an existing team, under a channel as a tab.

    If one of the perceived issues is that members of the shift may not be in an associated Team and Channel combo, perhaps add a check to the tab addition to indicate this fact and allow the bind or reject.

    Either way the shift information should be allowed to be more central and visible to participants.

  7. Place signature/disclaimer under user's last typed line instead of bottom of email and prevent signature stacking

    When using transport rules for email signature or legal disclaimer, the rule places the information at the bottom of the email instead of under the sender's last typed line. The result is a stack of signatures and legal disclaimers. The recipient does not know who wrote the email or whom the legal disclaimer belongs to.

  10. Add More than 6 Label Options in Planner

    Please allow more than 6 labels for a task in Planner. Six labels is nowhere near enough for a viable group organizational tool. This limitation greatly handicaps the application, and drastically reduces the number of ways that it can be used.

  12. Add native Outlook contact to Outlook phone app

    Hello, I am using outlook since 2004 and have thousands of them. No other contact app is fully compatible to outlook contacts when factoring categories and various fields. The way we have it set up in or business, many contacts are companies; in the individual company contact we have various personal in various fields according to their position in the company. Due to that, Outlook contacts never did a good job integrating into Google or iPhone contacts. Back in the days, I even got a Windows phone hoping it will provide a good integration with Outlook contacts. It did not.

  13. Add a OneDrive plan to the Office 365 A5 license, so that SharePoint does not need to be assigned for Office Online.

    “To assign a license that contains Office Online for Education, you must also assign one of the following service plans: OneDrive for Business (Plan 1), SharePoint Plan 2 for EDU, SharePoint Plan 1 for EDU.”

    With A1/ProPlus, we used to assign the OneDrive Plan 1 to a to meet this requirement, and not give SharePoint access, but that is not an option in E5/A5. We do not want a large portion of our accounts in our multidomain tenant to see sharepoint, so we never gave them a sharepoint license. Now with A5, there is no alternative but to give SharePoint…

  14. Add an option to turn OFF keeping a copy of SMTP relayed messages in sent items.

    Recently the uservoice "SMTP Relay via Office 365 - Keep copy in Sent Items" was apparently implemented. As far as I can tell there is no way to turn this off. Please give those of us who don't want this an option to turn if off.

  15. 360 Video capability in stream

    The use of stream for hosting 360 video content would make this a better platform. Our Drone and Video workshops are limited to forward face video. To make our sites safer we are investing in 360 video, however stream does not support this. You tube is capable of this content, however i would prefer to still use stream with 360 video.
    example here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H6SsB3JYqQg

  17. Offer Options for the Office 365 Ribbon Appearance

    I am disappointed with the appearance of the new Office 365 ribbon. I use a desktop and a laptop and find the monotone look and the over simplistic icons confusing and hard to read. These look like changes, just for the sake of change.
    Options to revert to earlier versions that users were familiar with, would have been appreciated.

  18. show Teams calls and chat message when in different tenant

    When a user is logged in to a different than his corp Teams Tenant as a guest, incoming calls or chats are not show.
    If Teams should replace Skype for Business as Chat and PSTN this is a No GO!
    Even when just working as guest on some content somewhere else the user is cut of from calls and chats in his company!
    At least notify about incoming private chat and calls within the own tenant when working in another one to be able to reply or answer.

  19. People App in Office 365

    Our goal is to use the People App in Office 365 as an employee directory combining two o365 tentants. However,Currently, the Organization tab is displayed only for contacts which are pulled from Active Directory and not GAL contacts.

    Most organizations may benefit to have Organization Tab displayed in a user's contact card in Office 365 People App, irrespective of contacts being fetched from Active Direcotry or Exchange online GAL.

    It would be great to have this implemented in near future.
    Any suggestions would be highly appreciated. Give it a thought!

    Thanks in advance!

    -Danny

  20. customize the button help " ? " located on the office 365 navigation bar

    It is interesting to be able to modify the labels on the Office help page ( ?) in the main navigation.
    As this navigation bar is located on almost every Office 365 service (SharePoint, Outlook...) it would be convenient if each administrator of the tenant could control and customize the information that is relevant or not.
    It will therefore be easy to find information that you want to push to the majority of the tenant's users.
    - To be able to move the labels,
    - Be able to add links easily
