  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. 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.

  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.

  5. 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.

  7. 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.

  9. 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. 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

  11. 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

  12. Enable meeting organizers to control the tracking status visibility.

    MS recently released the feature that also meeting attendees can see the tracking/responds status of other meeting attendees.
    (https://support.office.com/en-gb/article/attendees-can-see-others-responses-to-a-meeting-invitation-f51437e5-352c-4223-b7d8-7020cd71f3c8)
    As this information is not limited to the organizer anymore, at least one control should be made available.
    The organizer of a meeting should get the ability to decide if this information should be made available to the invited audience or not.

  14. 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.

  15. 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

  16. Allow Partners to convert users to shared mailboxes

    Currently, only Global Administrators can convert a user account to a shared mailbox. This makes it difficult for Partners with admin rights to do what they need to do in a timely manner.
    I recommend allowing global permissions for Partners to be able to make these changes, as it seems like a massive oversight.

  18. Teams Secondary Ringer

    As Teams replaces Skype for Business it is critical that we have the secondary ringer functionality added to the Teams desktop app. Most of our users are using a head set for communication and can't hear the phone ring. Setting PC speaker as default isn't an option as there are numerous websites these days with auto play videos and we don't want other PC sounds constantly playing in the office.

  20. 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.
