  1. 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. Allow Teams VTC Instructions to be editable

    Allow Teams VTC Instructions to be editable by the Administrator. currently the text that is shown on Teams Meetings is hard coded by Microsoft. This should accept the ability to use HTML to change the wording, and instructions to be more clear for individual company needs

  4. 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.

  5. 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…

  6. RMS Compatibility with Outlook recipients outside the tenant. Outlook universal compatibility for reading or opening RMS Encrypted Emails.

    Currently, there are only specific Outlook versions (see link below) that could read inbound encrypted emails. This is a big limitation for Office 365 tenant who are sending encrypted emails to external users. We don't get to decide the recipients of our emails so we cannot dictate for them to have specific subscriptions or Office versions. Most clients / customers use Office 2016 Home or Office 365 Business, which means that most IRM emails.

  7. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. Allow for screen pop to a URL based on caller id (for CRM search based on phone number)

    Allow users to add a url that will pop up in a separate (or imbedded) window (browser), that allows for the addition of the caller ID from an inbound (or outbound) caller. Example: https://www.bing.com/search=(Caller ID) or https://www,MyCRM.com/Universal_Search=(Caller ID) OR (Caller Name)
    This would then open the URL in Edge or Chrome, etc. allowing the user to search for information based on the Caller ID (eg. WhitePages.com)

  12. Improve filter function in Outlook Mobile App

    The filter function in the Outlook mobile version is limited to the inbox.
    It would be great if it would be possible to also filter in other folders!
    Please extend the filter function to all folders.

  14. 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.

  16. 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. Restrict Office 365 account association with Windows 10

    If an Office 365 account is associate with Windows 10, you might not be able to sign in Office clients, IE, or Edge successfully after changing the Office 365 password due to the account association.
    So, we would like to ask adding a feature that restricts Office 365 account association with Windows 10 or improving the sign-in behavior to be completed successfully after password change.
    Also, we would like to ask adding a warning on the prompt when signing in Office client, because if a user select “Yes” when signing in Office clients, the account will be associated with Windows…
