  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.

    • 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.

        • More ‘Smooth’ Effects

          Video creation using powerpoint is quite good, but still is not as good as after effect of other video editor. Very unfortunate because it’s only less than a fraction of a second. We’ll be very happy if the smooth timing can be improved so we can create HQ video just rely on powerpoint.

          • Adding Powerpoint Video Timeline

            We All know that right now powerpoint has widely use for video making, but there is a difficulty to sync voice with video or to add effect on exact time. My suggestion is, this surely easier if Microsoft add ‘timeline’ feature just like majority of video editor so it would be easier for us to configure audio and video effect for better result

            • 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

                Can you add the functionality for the ADFS ESL (External Smart Lockout) Banned IP list to auto subscribe to a 365 RBL list for malicious IPs. This will stop the need for Admins to have to manually add the Banned IPs to the ADFS ESL Banned IP list.

                    We have 50000+ users in our tenant. Our naming convention is {First name} {Last Name} causing a lot of duplicate display names. We can use email address or department to differentiate the users but even within a single department there can be duplicates.

                    • Resize columns in Contents (site contents) for SharePoint Online

                      There is no ability to resize the columns in the Contents (site contents) page. So for any apps, libraries or lists that have a title (name) with a decent amount of characters it gets cut off and it's hard to quickly tell what the title is. We have sites with numerous document libraries with long names where it takes a long time to pinpoint a particular library. You have to hover over the title on each library to get the full name. We should have the same functionality as you do when in a list or library where you can…

                        • add an option to disable email notifications when sharing a calendar

                          It would be very helpfull to turn off calendar invites. In a company, where each calender is shared with all other employees - sharing a calendar for a new employee, will result in many hundred mails the the entire organisazion, when shaing/editing the permissions for the calender for all users.

                              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.

                              • Provide an upgrade path from 32-bit to 64-bit installations

                                With the recent announcement that future installs will default to 64-bit, which is a complete 180 degree turn from the previous recommendation, it would be useful to have a reliable way to transition between the two installation types.

                                Currently, the ODT will throw an error if it's executed with a config file specifying a 64-bit install on a system with 32-bit O365.

                                A more preferable behavior would be to uninstall the 32-bit version and install 64-bit without requiring restarts.
