  1. Need to check login IP addresses from MS O365

    See which IP addresses users are logging from. For security reasons I want to see if an account is hacked. Google, Yahoo and other mail providers offer it as part of their service not matter with service you have - NON-enterprise..

  2. Change PSTN dial in shared number language

    At the moment you cannot change for PSTN conferencing your shared (Microsoft bridge) dial in number language. Neither in the new/old portal nor via PowerShell.
    For my customers e.g. in Switzerland, it's quiet annoying and not really acceptable.

    Please help me to develop/change this setting in the Skype for Business admin center.

    Thanks!

  3. Video Portal

    SharePoint Administrator should have Full control over Video Portal since it is a part of SharePoint. Currently only Global Admins can manage Video Portal so its basically bug that SharePoint Admins cant manage Video Portals.

  4. Showing a creation window for meeting invites by double-clicking a date in a calendar

    I would like to open a creation window for meeting invites instead of calendar items when I double-click a date in a calendar.
    In Outlook client 2013 or later versions, when a user with Editor permission double-clicks a date in a calendar, it will open a creation window for calendar items. This would lead to make conflicting schedules because the user can still book another item if the user accepts another meeting invites for the same time period. This behavior needs to be avoided and Outlook calendar should not make schedules overlapped at all.

  5. Adding description to the Folders

    Adding description to folders, can helps in finding what the folder content. These descriptions in text format and when mouse over it highlights the recorded text and tells what kind of files or documents are stored within the folder.

  6. Allow server side license modification via powershell

    It currently takes 1 day to change licenses for 50,000 users via powershell. There needs to be a better way to manage licensing for a large number of users.
    1. Assign dynamically like we can for a dynamic DL
    2. Have a cmdlet that runs server side and faster than a remote PS session
    3. Use security groups or policy to associate licenses

    I understand this would be aimed at large educational institutions but it can take 5-10 days to update licensing for all users.

  9. I cannot get Visio copied images to paste full pages & cannot use my new Surface Pro 4 as a result.

    I have exhausted the best capabilities of the fine Office 365 help team who cannot fix the problem either. I use Visio extensively to serve my business clients. I have a Surface Pro 3 that functions beautifully, but Visio on my new Pro 4 only pastes 25% of a copied image to any Office application. All my software is 100% Microsoft's latest release with all updates current.

  10. Typewriter/Minimalist Mode

    It would really help if there was mode that let you type from the center of the page and scrolled as you typed. It's so frustrating to be always staring at the bottom of the screen, or have to keep scrolling back up so you're in the middle. Scrivener can do it with a single button, Word takes like a million options to set up.

    And maybe a minimalist mode that takes away some of the options or has a full screen? That would be nice for writers like me.

  11. Migrating distribution groups to mail-enabled security groups

    I would like to migrate distribution groups to mail-enabled security groups and vice versa.
    This allows us to make effective use of existing groups.
    Currently, admins need to re-create groups if they want to change the existing group types.

    This feedback is based on a customer voice from support SR.

  13. Allow users to add their own Custom Exchange Error Messages

    Allow Office 365 users to add their own custom exchange error messages like: non-delivery report, user not found etc.

    This would allow users of Exchange to add their own touch to their customers bouncebacks. Also perhaps allowing us to customising the look of the error with a logo.

    This is also a good idea to allow us to help the customer by pinpointing where they may have gone wrong and display contact details of the company they are trying to reach.

  14. Parature: Notifications are Delayed or Missing

    Parature Email Notifications are extremely useful. However, they are inconsistent. Sometimes they don't arrive. However, most of the time, when there's a problem, notifications are delayed by an hour or more. In order to help us keep on top of our Customers, it would be great if these notifications could be more consistent.

  16. too many ideas: add timestamp + mark the ones that are implemented or rejected

    the list of ideas is simply too large.
    and I still see ideas that are already implemented (e.g. sent items in shared mailboxes)
    so please, add a timestamp (how old is this idea?) and indicate the status of the idea (implemented, rejected, thinking about it, ..)

  17. SharePoint MySites Powershell permissions

    When a customer has many OneDrive for Business users and Share permissions have been set globally to allow anyone to read any content it would be nice to be able to use Powershell to remove these.

    Currently the Remove-SPOUser command does not work on personal sites. This means that for instance if the default 'Everyone Except External Users' has been left on we have no easy way to bulk remove this. Site collection Administrators can be added via Powershell thankfully but this still means that removing permissions needs to be done per personal site via SharePoint Online Administration center.
