  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  4. Resource Calendar: allow declining of individual conflicts (not the whole series when a conflitc exists) and improve the notification email

    Our primary meeting room has a Room Resource Calendar in Outlook however one issue that has been noted by colleagues is that if someone books a event series (let's say a recurring meeting for 6 weeks happening every Monday at 10am) if one or more of those instances conflict with another booking (for example if the room is free for 5 out of the 6 instances of the series) because of that single conflict the Room Calendar will decline the entire series, but in the notification email it doesn't say where the conflict is.

    This becomes a problem when you…

  5. People App in Office 365

    Our goal is to use the People App in Office 365 as an employee directory combining two o365 tentants. However,Currently, the Organization tab is displayed only for contacts which are pulled from Active Directory and not GAL contacts.

    Most organizations may benefit to have Organization Tab displayed in a user's contact card in Office 365 People App, irrespective of contacts being fetched from Active Direcotry or Exchange online GAL.

    It would be great to have this implemented in near future.
    Any suggestions would be highly appreciated. Give it a thought!

    Thanks in advance!

    -Danny

  6. 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.

  9. Revert to download Visio Online Plan 2 installation

    Regarding Visio Online Plan 2 installer from https://portal.office.com, the installer does not read user information who are currently signing-in to the portal when downloading the app. Therefore licensing would not be performed while installing Visio.
    I would request you to revert the previous installer which could perform licensing while installing Visio at the same time.

  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. Control icons that are displayed in the Office 365 portal

    The icons displayed at portal.office.com do not always work. In particular, the OWA icon fails with an error if OWA is disabled on premise and the user's mailbox is not in the cloud or if OWA has been disabled in the cloud. Need to remove the OWA icon in such cases.

  15. 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.

  18. Allow admins to change the Targeted channel release to semi-annual channel via ODT or registry key

    Allow us admins to change the update release channel of Office apps from Targeted to Semi-annual via ODT or modifying registry key. We followed the steps on this link (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/office/troubleshoot/switch-channel-for-office-365) but it only gave us an error saying that we have internet issues or the HDD space is not sufficient.

  20. 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.
