  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.

  3. Deactive or hide "no business data allowed" connectors in Flow

    we would like to provide a power platform for our company, where only connectors should be offered which have been classified as secure and harmless third-party software. However, the connectors cannot be deactivated or hidden in the "no business data allowed", this poses great challenges for many companies. Therefore we ask you to be able to deactivate or hide the connectors.

  4. 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.

  6. 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…

  8. Give customers more advance notice when the Office 365 URLs and IP addresses are going to be updated.

    Hello,

    It is very difficult for customers (especially in the government space) to quickly make changes to their networking and firewalls when we update the O365 URLs and IP addresses. We have given customers several ways to monitor these changes (RSS, Web Service, Flow, Rest API Search, script, etc.), but they need more advance notice when we are going to change something.

    Here is some direct customer feedback:
    Microsoft is making an endpoint change and is expecting the customer to automate everything on their side to implement that change on the fly (firewall, routes, etc.) In our environment the network…

  9. 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.

  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.

  11. Request Exchange hybrid key for Exchange Server 2019 activation with Hybrid Configuration Wizard (HCW)

    Actually it is not possible to obtain a free Exchange Server 2019 activation with a hybrid key. For earlier Exchange Versions this works trough HCW, but not with Exchange 2019: "Please note that HCW does not provide a 'hybrid key' for Exchange Server 2019. If you need a hybrid key, the latest version that it is available for is Exchange Server 2016."

    This is not customer friendly at all - so please add Exchange 2019 to this feature.

  14. 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.

  16. Seamless UX when using a Sharepoint URL in a TAB in Teams

    Issue: Customer has a URL tab in one of their Teams. This URL directs them to a SharePoint Communications site, when trying to access the tab via the desktop client they are prompted with a Login prompt where as if they access the TAB via the browser they are not.

    Assessment: Expected Behavior.

    Resolution: When access the tab in the browser credentials are already cached and therefore authentication is silently passed allowing users to be directed straight to the target SharePoint site. Conversely when clicking on the TAB in the desktop client auth tokens have not been passed so SharePoint…

  19. Hide contacts with faxnumber in outlook address book

    If you open Outlook address book and search for contacts, you find names with valid email address and such one with a fax number.

    I suggest to implement a Feature, that names ( lines) with fax numbers can be hidden in the address list for Outlook, which Primary want to send emails and don't want to send fax. Especially in Office 365, where no fax is connected.

  20. 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.
