  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.

      • 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

        • Add the functionality for the ADFS ESL Banned IP list to auto subscribe to a 365 RBL list for malicious IPs

          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.

          • 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.

            • Enable multi-geo support for smaller tenants

              We have a global company but only a small (around 350) licensed user base. We would dearly love to be able to leverage multi-geo functionality in order to be compliant with data sovereignty laws.

                Allow creation of playlists in Microsoft stream. This should be able to be controlled by admins to create training series', etc., or by users for custom playlists of their favorite videos.

                    • Support mobile app: Add support for PowerApps forms

                      Currently PowerApps forms for SharePoint not showing in SharePoint Mobile App. Because of it, in 2018, SharePoint is still not mobile friendly.

                      Yes, OOB SharePoint forms show up, but they are completely static and extremely limited in functionality. We really need PowerApps to be displayed in the SharePoint Mobile app.

                        • Improve Stream Performance - picture blurry first 6-18 seconds of video

                          When we post videos to Stream, when clicked to play from Stream or if they are embedded in SharePoint, the first 6-18 seconds of the video is blurry and then the picture sharpens. Microsoft Support says that this is a known issue and the Stream team is aware of it. Please fix!

                            • Change the ribbon icons back to how they were!

                              The new ribbon icons are terrible!

                              They are very low contrast and I'm having trouble working out which is which!

                              There's very little colour and it's really hard to differentiate between similar icons. I have 'set print area' and 'preview and print' next to each other and there's no difference aside from a thin blue line on set print area.

                              Please provide the option to change back to the previous icons or the ability to select from high contrast or low contrast.

                              • Highlighted Content Web Part -> allow Multiple Filters based on "And" rather than "Or"

                                Currently the Highlighted Content Web Part allows you to filter based on more than one Managed Properties. That's great, however, when you select more than one property it displays all documents tagged with EITHER property, rather than displaying only documents that are tagged with BOTH properties.
                                For example, I have a library with tags for: Department, and Document Type. I want to display these documents on a HCWB in my Communication Site. I only want to display Budget documents from the Finance department. But I can't do that, I can only display all documents tagged with Budget AND all documents…

                                  Currently the PowerShell module that supports MFA does not support CSP Delegated Admin Privileges. Considering the scope and power of a DAP account this is a pretty wicked security hole.

                                  • We need a "Is this feature deployed to my tenant yet?" tool

                                    People in the world, both admins and users, are constantly asking whether new features Microsoft has announced as on the way or rolling out are deployed to their tenant yet. This often results in a lot of confusion and probably support cases and questions into Microsoft asking these types of questions.

                                    We could solve this by building some sort of "Is this feature deployed to my tenant yet?" tool. This tool would very simply authenticate the person checking via Azure Active Directory, and then return a simple result for the feature you are checking on. Results could be:

                                    - Yes …

                                    • Disable the new AutoSave by default, as it can lead to a loss of data

                                      The new AutoSave can potentially lead to a loss of data. If you open any Word, PowerPoint, etc. doc, there is an "AutoSave" that is automatically on, on the upper left. If you're changing some stuff around and don't want to save, it still saves it. Or if you delete some things and then save as copy, your original is gone, because AutoSave was on. This is a horrible feature and should be disabled by default.

                                      • onedrive limit

                                        Onedrive, sharepoint limitations when dealing with a large set of files.
                                        A few issues here
                                        Onedrive and sharepoint are extremely limiting when dealing with a large number of files (300,000+). Major issues with trying to sync with the one drive client and its files. Multiple restarts of onedrive are usually required, sometimes it is stuck on "Processing Changes" for days.

                                        Cannot sync more than 300,000 files on onedrive and sharepoint libraries locally, this sounds a little bit ridiculous because the windows file system has no limitation on this.Dropbox and google drive do not have these limitations.

                                        • Cortana integration to Office 365 on mobile devices

                                          Office 365 Account integration with Cortana app in mobile devices like in iOS devices (iPhone).
                                          We have one customer who wants to use his Office 365 account to login and use Cortana app on iPhone. Cortana integration to Office 365 is currently working with Windows 10 desktops and it would be best for it to also work on mobile devices.
