  1. Teams

    Fix issue with Teams External communication. Even with all external settings turned on, every time you try to chat to an external User, it redirects to the Skype for Business chat and not their Teams chat. Teams will not even send to external contact without Skype for Business running. I understand Teams is still in development but this needs to be resolved ASAP.

    • Mac Dark Mode On/Off Needed

      I like using the OS dark mode on my Mac, but I just got the Office update and do not like dark mode for Office. It seems like a no-brainer that you would have an option to turn it on or off just for Office programs, but it seems there isn't. Please add it ASAP.

      Also, in the dark mode design, you should have at least left the color associated with each program in the top bar. If you have multiple windows open, say Outlook and Excel, the blue and green help you know which one is which.

      • Make notifications of changes to Calendar permissions OPTIONAL (Outlook for Windows)

        Currently, if you demote or change the permission level of another user into your calendar (Calendar / Share Calendar / Permissions) that user receives a very annoying message that suggests you don't trust him/her anymore: "XXXX has removed the sharing permissions for an Outlook calendar previously shared with you.".

        Each user should be able to enable/disable all notifications within the same "permissions" tab.

        • Enable downloading MSI-packages from Intune console

          Once you uploaded a MSI-package to Intune, only Intune-enrolled devices can download & decrypt the MSI-files. Please make it possible to just download the MSI-files from the Intune console (or using Graph).

            • OUTLOOCK 2013: error in the Italian translation

              my toolbar contains the outlook icon, clicking on it with the right mouse button there is the error, instead of "NEW Email message" there is written "Muovo" (which in Italian means nothing) the correct word is Nuovo with "N" does anyone see the same mistake? if yes please attach your own photo, thank you.

              I use: Windows 10 Pro with Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2013

              Best Regards,
              RAF

                • Applying update programs separately

                  I would like to apply update programs separately; i.e. applying security update program only, when updating.
                  Currently, I cannot apply security updates only with having feature updates remain as they are.

                  • primary email address/username change breaks everything - allow legacy additional username

                    We have grown and now want to change our email address structure for primary email, but this then changes the Username and this breaks everything from onedrive shares (my-sharepoint) to mobile sync logins. This is known as you have a big warning.

                    Another common use case is change of name where someone wants to update their primary email address. Ideally they should not have to rummage through all their devices and services to update credentials and links.

                    There needs to be a better way of handling this. eg: if username is changed then the superseded username can be retained for…

                    • Display other's (shorter) working hours when scheduling appointments

                      I work part time, six hours a day. I can set working hours e.g. from 9am to 3pm, times outside of that are shown in gray.
                      Nevertheless, this not shown when someone else plans to create an appointment with me. So he can assume that I'm present until 5pm, and books an appointment for me, after 3pm.
                      I don't want to set a recurring 'blocker' for that purpose, because to me that's exactly what working hours should be used for.

                      • I would like to perform licensing for multiple users in bulk with PowerShell commands when installing Office application in offline

                        It would be great if I can assign license simultaneously for multiple devices which are installed in offline.

                            Lower access rights administrators should have access to edit the authentication info for other users. It is only available to Global admins at the moment and is causing operational issues for help desk operators.

                              • Allow branding changes of all tenants through partner portal

                                As a partner managing a number of O365 Tenants, we would like to be able to perform bulk changes to branding - ie. allow us to put our logo on all customer O365 sign in pages in one go. Happy for this to be a powershell functionality.

                                At the moment I haven't been able to see anything that allows us to achieve these mass changes in one go.
