  1. Feature that doesn’t recognize embedded images in the email body as attachments

    We are having an issue that embedded image files in the email body in Rich Text or HTML format are recognized as attachments and the transport rule is triggered under the condition on existence of attachments. So, we would like to ask for a feature that doesn’t recognize embedded image files in the email body as attachments.

  3. Create a mechanism to allow users to sync entire sharepoint site collections via onedrive

    It would be useful to allow admins to provision users for the ability to set up a site collection sync for all libraries in one click if desired. This is particularly meaninful when there are onedrive sync client failures. We have had a number of instances in which the onedrive sync client broke, and the only solution was to have users go back through their lirbaries and re-sync them one at a time, which is really time consuming. We have about a hundred different subsites and libraries, so this is pretty painful. it happens to us once or twice a…

  4. Warn users if their reply is not on latest mail thread

    This is every day problem in Microsoft Outlook 2016 that I'm using. People reply over old mail thread instead of latest one. A simple solution would be to warn user if they reply over old thread and ask them whether they want to reply over latest.

  7. VisibleMeetingUpdateProperties parameter of Set-OrganizationConfig cmdlet

    The parameter applies to org-level, but we would like to set the parameter to user-level because of the difference of needs for per user.

  8. Compatibility checker compatible with modern auth

    The O365CompatibilityChecker powershell module is not compatible with Modern Authentication making it entirely useless on domains with MFA....

    This should be fixed immediately, am not sure why something like this wasn't updated, or have an option for MFA users.

  11. Improve the document sharing link setting display

    When editing an Office document, which is stored in OneDrive or Sharepoint, the Share dialogue is unclear in the later versions of O365. Firstly there isn't a clear list of the users who currently have access, and thirt permissions. Secondly, when adding a new user, the link sharing setting is either bold or no bold to show whether edit or read is slected. Just put a tick in the nice round circle to the left, perhaps?

  14. Teams chat. Please improve the exteranal chat communication

    Teams chat. Please improve the external chat communication.

    When an internal user wants to CHAT (using the chat tab) with someone externally to his organization what happens is:

    - If this external user has already Teams you can speak with him directly.
    - If he doesn't. The internal user receives a message like this "We are unable to set up the conversation because the contact you entered wasn't found. Chat not available". So the internal user has to invite this user as a guest using "Teams" tab and once the user is federated and categorized as a Guest user you…

  15. show Teams calls and chat message when in different tenant

    When a user is logged in to a different than his corp Teams Tenant as a guest, incoming calls or chats are not show.
    If Teams should replace Skype for Business as Chat and PSTN this is a No GO!
    Even when just working as guest on some content somewhere else the user is cut of from calls and chats in his company!
    At least notify about incoming private chat and calls within the own tenant when working in another one to be able to reply or answer.

  16. Allow users to edit PDF's directly in SharePoint and OneDrive

    We have several customers who work in PDF's, not in word. There is no easy way in SharePoint to edit in PDF's. Customers can easily "edit in word", but cannot edit a PDF. They need to open it (which at first defaults to a browser and not a PDF), download it, work on it (offline and out of SharePoint and out of the "SharePoint Online" product) save changes manually, and re-upload. This whole process goes against what Microsoft advertises in terms of easily accessible,work from anywhere online pitch, and brings people away from your product and towards adobe instead. For…

  17. Add push pin to all MS Office & Windows apps so you can pin any window on top

    Put a push pin in the upper corner of all MS Office (or, even better, all Windows windows) to allow you to pin any file on the screen so it will always stay on top of all the other windows.

  19. Cascading drop downs in Libraries

    Cascading drop downs in SharePoint libraries were available in the classic view. This functionality is not available in Modern view. Please consider to bring it back as it is one of the most useful features of SharePoint.

  20. Add a Universal inbox option to Outlook for Windows like ALL the other email apps out there for mac and others

    Outlook 365 / 2019 / 2016 etc... Why not add a universal inbox option like the ability to add this as a favorite even - one that consolidates multiple inboxes much like Outlook for mac or mail on the mac or many other top rated email apps out there? This has been a much desired feature in Outlook for Windows for a LONG time now and nothing much has changed in it not being added.. seems odd to me.
