  2. OWA room resource finder should allow filtering to avoid the 100 display limit

    Currently booking a room within OWA is a horrible user experience, the site will only show the first 100 rooms, so users are not able to select the room by name (we have 1000's globally), it just needs to allow a filter to be applied and show the matches.

  3. Add the option to skip large items or corrupted items in the PST import service.

    We need the ability to set the threshold for skipping corrupted items or items that are too large when importing them into Office 365 through the PST Import Service. Right now, the import service will hit the threshold and stop, forcing you to investigate the PST files, and manually scan them before re-uploading and initiating a new job.

  6. Stop Onedrive for business if it can't be made user friendly

    The release of Onedrive for business is premature and full of critical bugs. MS must think about redesigning the whole solution and make it simple to use and allow users to collaborate.
    The current state of onedrive is just unstable and annoying.

  7. Online ToDo / Project list

    I would like to see an online ToDo / Project list where I can create tasks in sequence that also create calendar events. So lets say I am working on a home project where I want to redo my kitchen and there are several things that need to be done. So I can create a new project online for myself where I set tasks to for example, pull out kitchen cabinets first, then the appliances, then the floor, etc. In the midst of all that I may need to be looking for contractors for electrical, plumbing, drywall or whatever, and…

  8. LOPs/Ricoh copiers started sending gibberish attachments to exchange online mailboxes

    Case : 615101494278694

    Does MS plans to rollout such similar updates without considering the impact factor? Our business was severely affected for days due this unwarranted update (dated 12th OCT 0800 2015). I have seen adjacent issues in the past (related to O365) which resulted due to sporadic MS updates. Kindly make sure to consider all ends before any major roll-out!

  9. If a user has no mailbox but is in in-place hold the mailbox will reply with an out-of-office message.

    A user has left, the E3 license was removed but the mailbox was on in-place hold. Before the user has left, the autoreply (out-of-office) was activated. After removing the license from that user, the out-of-office is still responding because of the hold state. According to MS this is by design.

  10. Disabling the remote wipe feature for users

    We'd like to have the option to completely disable (or at least hide) the "full remote wipe" feature that is available to all our users via the Office 365 OWA interface. The reason for that is that most of our users have private devices and we don’t want to take the chance the they will accidently wipe them. This also makes the devices vulnerable in case of a phishing attack.

  12. Improve consistency of math equations between Office 365 products.

    Word uses a new format for math formulas that cannot be copied and pasted into Publisher because Publisher still uses Math 3.0. At least, provide a transparent conversion when copy and paste is used to convert from Word format to Publisher's Math 3.0 format. Pasting as a picture is not an acceptable alternative.

  15. Remember which account I use to login to Office 365

    I have a Microsoft account, and an Office 365 account that both use the same email address. I wish Office 365 would "remember" that I only use the organizational account to login.

  16. Stop documents from automatically saving as 'Document' when created from a Content Type

    This appears to be new functionality as I have only just noticed it. When documents are created through the ribbon or 'New' button and open in Word Online, they are automatically saved with a Name of 'Document.docx'. This is not helpful and the only way to change the filename is to go back to the Doc Library in question and edit the properties of the document/item. The old functionality which allowed you to save and specify a filename was much better in my opinion.

    Please do this as this is so obsolete and boring to not use images in signatures.

  18. Allow Windows phone Mail app to view shared inboxes in Office 365

    I have O365 Small Business. I have shared accounts (inboxes) under each main account. I can see and use the shared folders in Outlook desktop and OWA but not when viewing from the native mail app in Windows Phone, I can only see the main account inbox and its associated sub folders. I note that the equivalent desktop app in Windows 10 Pro behaves exactly the same. Please consider upgrading the functionality. I'm sure many people want this. Thank you.

  19. Disable important notifications

    Option to disable "important" notifications. It is not normal if you have always to cancel the import notification for expiring subscriptions if you change to csp licenses.

  20. global domain setting for archive & hold

    It would be good to have a global domain setting for archive and hold, so that any new user account automatically gets setup instead of having to add a user and then activating archive and hold
