  1. PowerApps: Add property Language to "Text Input" control

    The date picker control has a language property to change the formatting of the control diffrent to the device language. This would be great for the text input control. If you are using your PowerApp hostet in Teams than the app language is always en. In this case the number formatting is different from the users expectation.

  2. OneDrive: hide name in search result when sharing files/folders

    I want a feature in OneDrive where searching for a name when sharing a file/folder, the name won't populate or is hidden from the result.

    e.g. OneDrive > select file/folder > share > type/search name
    name won't pop up or is hidden

    Same as how you can hide an email address when searching in Outlook GAL

  3. 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…

  4. 360 Video capability in stream

    The use of stream for hosting 360 video content would make this a better platform. Our Drone and Video workshops are limited to forward face video. To make our sites safer we are investing in 360 video, however stream does not support this. You tube is capable of this content, however i would prefer to still use stream with 360 video.
    example here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H6SsB3JYqQg

  5. 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)

  6. Consolidate the location for end users to manage add-ins deployed via EAC versus Centralized Deployment

    When end users need to manage add-ins in OWA, add-ins deployed by admins using the Exchange Admin Center are only visible under OWA homepage -> Settings -> Mail -> General -> Manage add-ins.

    Add-ins deployed using Centralized Deployment are visible under OWA homepage -> Settings -> Manage add-ins -> Admin Managed

    Using Outlook desktop client, when you go to File -> Manage Add-ins, it takes you to the page that shows EAC deployed add-ins.

    In the same Outlook desktop, if you use the Get-Add-ins button in the Home ribbon, it takes you to the page the shows Centralized Deployment add-ins.

  7. Add a OneDrive plan to the Office 365 A5 license, so that SharePoint does not need to be assigned for Office Online.

    “To assign a license that contains Office Online for Education, you must also assign one of the following service plans: OneDrive for Business (Plan 1), SharePoint Plan 2 for EDU, SharePoint Plan 1 for EDU.”

    With A1/ProPlus, we used to assign the OneDrive Plan 1 to a to meet this requirement, and not give SharePoint access, but that is not an option in E5/A5. We do not want a large portion of our accounts in our multidomain tenant to see sharepoint, so we never gave them a sharepoint license. Now with A5, there is no alternative but to give SharePoint…

  8. 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…

  10. Do not open the Excel window when using PowerPoint with extended display mode

    When using multiple displays with extended mode, if you open PowerPoint and click the Excel worksheet icon, another Excel window opens.
    If you don’t use the extend display mode and do the exact same things, the Excel window won’t open. So, I would like you to fix this behavior for the extended display mode.

    On other times at is a translation error, for example:

    Gebruiker hebt het bestand bewerkt. ("hebt" should here be "heeft")

  13. 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.

  15. It's not possible anymore to see ALL recurring items of a shared calender anymore (no scroll possibility) in anymore OWA

    It's not possible anymore to see ALL recurring items of a shared calender anymore (no scroll possibility) anymore
    The maximum amount of items is 4, in the day, week and workweek. The additional items aren't displayed anymore, they are hidden. In the past it was possible by a little scrollbar, but that's not there anymore. Can you please activate this feature back on.

    We have to switch to the month view click on the day to see the addional items and that's really anoying and time consuming.

    Thanks.

  16. ATP anti-spoofing protecting staff member names rather than just domains or similar email addresses

    ATP anti-spoofing protecting staff member names rather than just domains or similar email addresses.

  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.

  19. Outlook Calendar: Response Options

    The only option you have in Outlook is just “Accept,” “Tentative,” “Decline". Having an additional option "Conference" or "Call" would be helpful to notify the meeting organizer that a individual is able to attend but will be calling in or using Web meetings to connect rather than attend in person.

  20. Project Online automatic way to synchronize Country region / attribute for a resource

    We would like to be able to synchronize an AD attribute (Region) with a resource Enterprise Custom Field (that would need to be created in the PWA) in an automatic way. Is this possible? At the end, the idea is to have a Region attribute automatically added to each user. Each region would have a rate associated, so we would like to have each user having this Region and Rate automatically updated from AD (Region) and Rate (this information would be available somewhere). We have seen that the field in AD called “Department” is synchronized with the resource field called…
