  1. Microsoft Flow - Access Control options to Flows

    In Microsoft Flow, when i share a Flow, there is only one access level available - full "manager" access. I dont want to grant full manager access. It would be extremely handy if there was an option to choose a different access level - like "read-only" or "edit"

    • To select the bitness for the Install Office option in the Microsoft Office Home (https://portal.office.com) page

      I would like to select the bitness (between 32 bits and 64 bits) when I clicked Install Office rather than Other install options.
      When I try to install Office by clicking Install Office, I cannot see which version of Office will be installed from Microsoft Office Home (https://portal.office.com).

          • Search documents via only their metadata tags across multiple libraries

            We have multiple document libraries across multiple sites that share metadata terms, like Function (HR, Security, Administrative, etc.) and Category (policy, procedure, form, etc.). I would like to provide our users with a metadata search page that allows document search across our multiple sites and libraries, that would return only those documents matching a given Function/Category metadata combination (HR/Form). My understanding is that this is a current limitation of SharePoint, so I would like this added as an enhancement. Thank you!

            • Allow S/MIME and Encryption Option in Outlook for Mac to be Hidden Even with Certificates Installed

              To prevent customers from using S/MIME and digital signing, on Outlook for Windows we are able to hide this option with a registry change managed via a GPO.

              Office for Mac does not have an option to hide these options, they are simply there if you have the certificates installed.

              It would be a good feature parity between the Mac and Windows versions to have the ability to hide these encryption and signing options in Outlook / Office for Mac.

                • Gmail password recovery without phone number

                  Gmail password recovery
                  The process of password and account recovery in Gmail is widely used by many every day. But does the process help you remember your password or give you information on your password? The answer is no. The Gmail password recovery process does nothing that could possibly help you remember your forgotten or lost password.

                  Can the Gmail not remind user of the password?
                  The Gmail account doesn’t store the information that is used for accessing. The combination is used for access verification and when the user doesn’t list the correct password, they are not allowed to access…

                  • より安定した製品および総合的なサポート窓口を要望します。 More stable products and support desk that gives consideration to customers more

                    --English below--

                    これまで Office 365 が自動更新されるごとに使い勝手が変わってきた (Word でリボンの表示がいつの間にか変更された、など)。
                    また同じ Word ファイルが日時によって開いたり開かなかったりする事象が起こり (セキュリティでブロックされている?)、その発生頻度が高い。
                    もっと安定して使用できる製品がほしい。

                    また更新による仕様変更に関する原因究明もできるようにしてほしい。
                    予期しない動作がよく起こり、サポートに問い合わせてはいろいろな窓口をたらい回しにされてきたので、一つの物事を総合的にサポートしてもらえる窓口を作ってほしい。

                    Until now, usability has changed every time Office 365 is updated automatically (eg The display of the ribbon in Word was changed while not knowing).
                    Also, it happens frequently that the same Word file opens or does not open depending on the date and time (it is blocked by security?).
                    I want products that can be used more stably.

                    Also, I would like you to be able to investigate the cause of the change in specification by updating.
                    Unexpected behavior often occurred, and as I…

                        • Excel Keep Duplicates

                          This would a be a feature for Excel, which I think some users might benefit from, similar to that of the remove duplicates function, it would be preferable to have the option, to keep only the duplicates and exclude all the other data.

                          • Provide an option to change Sharepoint default search without "/siteall?q="

                            It would be useful to provide a simple configuration option in Site Settings to change the default the search result scope from "site all" to "all content", eg

                            From this default search results /sites/sitecollection/_layouts/15/search.aspx/siteall?q=Strategy

                            to this /sites/sitecollection/_layouts/15/search.aspx?q=Strategy

                            Currently, if you run a search from a hub site or site collection using the modern search, the default search includes the "siteall?q=" which often returns unhelpful or zero results and without People results. Clicking on "search all content" returns useful results including People search results.

                            Ref https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/SharePoint/Search-on-modern-communication-site-url-issue-with-quot-siteall/m-p/205324/highlight/false#M18811

                            • Add persistent default zoom in Outlook 2019

                              Hello,

                              Please add the persistent zoom functionality that was recently added to the Office 365 version of Outlook to the Volume License 2019 version. The fact that emails must be zoomed in individually hinders productivity for users who may have vision issues.

                              Thank you for reading this suggestion.

                              • Remove character length limits on SharePoint

                                It is really inconvenient that you cannot download online the documents that have a character length of more than 500. Our team have extremely well organised and labelled folders, however we are now unable to use all the functions of SharePoint because there is too much detail/ too many folders within folders. It would be really helpful to remove this limit.

                                    • Microsoft Merge [Manage Recurring Connector Reservations] When on a waitlist for a recurring reservation, users can see # of people ahead

                                      When you are on the waitlist for a recurring connector reservation, you should be able to see how many people ahead of you are on the waitlist.

                                      This will match the behavior of a one-off connector reservation, where the service says you are "3rd in line" for that trip.

                                      • Need to develop an add-in in Excel 2016 which can convert Excel spreadsheet into interactive webforms

                                        Need to develop an add-in in Excel 2016 which can convert Excel spreadsheet into interactive webforms.
                                        When clients input data in it the output should show up in radar graphical display format.
                                        In excel 2009 this feature was available but with help of third party add-ins so we want to implement the same in Excel 2016 with Microsoft Office add-ins

                                        • make accents more universally usable across the MS suite of tools

                                          The quick accent shortcuts provided in Word and Outlook don't work in any other Apps (i.e. Excel, PowerPoint, etc.).
                                          For Example: [Ctrl] + [“] , then the letter [e] = é
                                          Please make these accents more universally accessible
