  1. Localized search results for each admin center

    Search results per admin center should be:
    1. filtered to display only articles that the tenant can relate to (i.e. In EAC, when organization is purely cloud, should not return any results that pertain to Exchange On prem)
    2. when searching using the help icon, search results should only display articles specific to the admin center you are searching from
    (i.e. If I am in Teams Admin Center, it should prioritize teams articles and not so much SFB)

  2. Additional archive storage space search issue (auto-expanding archive):

    We recently learnt that data moved to additional archive storage can only be searched by going to the folder itself. We want to know if it is the intended long-term solution for users. We feel that having to search in multiple locations would be difficult for users.
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/office365/securitycompliance/unlimited-archiving
    You can search for items that were moved to an additional storage area only by searching the folder itself. This means you have to select the archive folder in the folder list to select the Current Folder option as the search scope. Similarly, if a folder in an auto-expanded storage area…

  3. Microsoft Stream Playlists

  4. Save/share signature across web/desktop/apps

    It would be so convenient to introduce a cloud-stored signature.

    Perhaps in the outlook client create an option to choose a Signature-location;
    * Local
    * Shared - bladibla.com (perhaps only to choose a central signature from)
    * Cloud - accountname@bladibla.com (saves the signature in your cloud account and enables you to use the signature across desktop/owa/outlook app.

  5. Microsoft Teams forward calls to Call Queue or a Distribution Group

    Provide the ability for users to forward a call to a Call Queue or a Distribution Group within Microsoft Teams. Also the ability to choose 10-second forward instead of only 20-second. Would even help if an admin can create a Call Group in the admin center and have users add that instead of having to add to the call group in teams individually for each user.

  7. SharePoint sites that are registered as hub site has inconsistency to make the links open in the same tab.

    SharePoint sites, specifically Communication site that are registered as hub site, has inconsistency to make the links open in the same tab. At he top level navigation links, few link opens in new tab and few opens in same tab (All links belongs to same tenant).

    This behavior does not match with the MS article https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/plan-navigation-modern-experience

  8. 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.

  10. meetings rooms

    Our old email system shows only the rooms that the specific users have access to schedule. If i have no permition to user the meeting room A, when i search for rooms, the room A do not shows to me. In the Officee 365 all rooms appear for all users, even for those meetting room that they not have a permition. We think the Microsoft should fix that.

  11. Make Organization Assets in SharePoint Online sources for Inserting Pictures in all authoring

    The Organization Assets in SharePoint online was announced this April 2019 - https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Microsoft-SharePoint-Blog/April-2019-Updates-to-SharePoint-News/ba-p/481718 - when this is used in a tenant it would be useful for those libraries to be referenced in all of the O365 authoring apps (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc.) being utilized in the tenant. Insert ribbon, Online Pictures control specifically.

  12. Add an option for MS Stream to export the transcript to Word/Excel

    I would like to have the option to export the Microsoft Stream video transcript to other filetypes (with appropriate formatting), such as Word or Excel. Perhaps the Word export would be a running paragraph of text with no timestamps, whereas the Excel export could be two columns. In column A, we could have the timestamp; in column B, we would have the text of that phrase.

    This, and any other exports, would be greatly helpful!

  13. category search in Outlook for Mac 2016

    If you have multiple categories (scroll bar shows up), instead of scrolling down to your list, you can just search or type the first few letters of the desired category. This feature is available in Outlook for Mac 2011 but not anymore in Outlook for Mac 2016.

  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

  17. Calculate time required to read emails

    It would be helpful for email to calculate the time required time to read them and offer this on the UI of Outlook on the Web and Desktop too.

    The same way as its done by different blog engines on the web.

    I'd expect a "3 minutes to read" text as a yellow banner or something.

    Probably this would integrate nicely with MyAnalytics.

  18. 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.
