  1. Linux support

    I will in the future use both Linux and Windows pc at work. The lack of real linuxsupport is a problem. Please support LInux in onedrive/sharepoint.
    Hopefully also a office 365 package for linux would help

  2. Add More than 6 Label Options in Planner

    Please allow more than 6 labels for a task in Planner. Six labels is nowhere near enough for a viable group organizational tool. This limitation greatly handicaps the application, and drastically reduces the number of ways that it can be used.

  3. Disable the new AutoSave by default, as it can lead to a loss of data

    The new AutoSave can potentially lead to a loss of data. If you open any Word, PowerPoint, etc. doc, there is an "AutoSave" that is automatically on, on the upper left. If you're changing some stuff around and don't want to save, it still saves it. Or if you delete some things and then save as copy, your original is gone, because AutoSave was on. This is a horrible feature and should be disabled by default.

    We see two patterns in this feedback thread and are addressing them now. The first pattern is that users want AutoSave OFF. The second pattern is that the Template scenarios are problematic with AutoSave.

    To address turning AutoSave OFF, we have implemented these capabilities:

    1. To avoid accidental edits by others, the owner of a file can set it to Always Open Read-Only. This can be done by setting the file to open in Read-Only Recommended (File > Info > Protect Document/ Workbook/ Presentation > Always Open in Read-Only) or by Sharing the file without allowing others to edit (File > Share > People with the link can edit > Uncheck the “Allow Editing” box).

    2. Users can turn AutoSave OFF for a file. While a document is open, clicking the AutoSave toggle turns AutoSave OFF for the current document for that user. The next time the same…

  4. Create a helpdesk ticketing system within Office 365

    We are currently using Office 365 Planner but it lacks capabilities for a ticketing system - cannot issue trouble tickets, issue categorisation and reporting, allow employees to log their own tickets, etc. How about creating a Helpdesk Ticketing System within Office 365?

    Thanks!

    You can use your own personal email with a personal domain to connect to any type of Office 365 subscription, including Office 365 Home. Office 365 Home relies on a Microsoft account for authentication. A Microsoft account can be created with any personal domain email, it is not required to be Outlook.com/Hotmail.com, etc. Once the Microsoft account is created using your personal email, you can use it to activate and sign into your Office 365 Home subscription.
    If you don’t have a Microsoft account, go to the Microsoft account sign-up page and click on Create account. In the User name box enter your personal domain email address you wish to use. Fill out the rest of the form and click Create account.
    Now you can set up your Office 365 Home subscription with your Microsoft account. This will be the Microsoft account associated with your Office download. If you have…

  7. Office 365 support for Windows Server 2019

    With the recent announcement @ Ignite that Office 365 would not be supported on Windows Server 2019, I’d like to request that decision to be reversed. As a long time RDSH admin this is a poor decision and would require using Office 2019 to connect to a cloud mailbox. Essentially requiring a double license for Office functionality in RDSH.

  8. FIDO U2F

    Office 365 for work: We need Office 365 for Work support a FIDO Universal Second Factor (U2F) protocol standard Security Key.

    As many organisation would like to shift to Office 365 but they concern about the security standard which request Office 365 to support Universal Second Factor (U2F) protocol standard security key as Microsoft is a member of FIDO.

    So, I wrote this idea to be a feedback request to Office team.

    (Update from Office engineering) Thank you for voting, we appreciate your feedback. User Voice is an important input we are considering when establishing the product road map. In general, when providing feedback specific for Excel Online, I would recommend using Excel Online UserVoice, where you’ll find the specific feature granularity.

    I would like to use the opportunity to provide update on progress:

    What is already available in production?
    • Find dialog remain open when find item for find next.
    • replace dialog
    • Ability to Freeze Panes

    Please give it a try, we are looking forward to your feedback.

    What is high on our backlog – Impacted by User Voice voting – Keep voting

    • Custom Sort
    • Enable reference to a cell in another sheet by click (In Vlookup as well)
    • Enhanced Print
    • Pivot table

  12. Share multiple files from OneDrive or SharePoint

    It would be great if we could select files in OneDrive or SharePoint, and 'share' them simultaneously, to avoid having to create a folder in which to group files to be shared.

  13. Custom installation from Office 365 (2016)

    I need custom installation from Office 365 (2016)!

    I need on some computers only Word & Excel. But I MUST install the complete suite with all other never used apps. This need diskspace, that I will use for other apps.

    Kind Regards,

  14. Change the way of Initials

    The initials show automatically based on the Display name. for example if my name is John Smith, my initials will be JS.

    If My display name is Smith, John (which is my last name, first name) my Initials shows as SJ

    The Initials are usually First character of the first name and the first character of the last name. regardless of my display name, my initials should be the same

    So I suggest to have the Initials created based on the "First Name" and "Last Name" fields not on the "Display Name" field

  15. Allow users to edit their personal info

    Under Office 365 settings > Personal info, only admins can change their own details.

    I understand this is restricted to prevent abuse. However, organizations should be given the freedom to choose whether or not to lift this restriction. I suggest an additional option/rule under Exchange's user roles.

    Please also add the field "Title" to the Personal info section if it's not the currently displayed "Occupation".

  17. teams picture

    disable user ability to change the user picture from teams. Currently we use AD to add user pictures and use an OWA Mailboc policy to prohibit users from changing them.
    Now with Teams they can change the picture and this then flows across all O365 services against company policy.
    Please create an option to disable picture changing within Teams.

  18. Ability to upload and use custom fonts

    It should be possible to upload and use custom fonts installed on an organisations Office 365 platform. Uploaded documents now look faulty in Excel / Word / PowerPoint etc since the font is not installed.

  19. Basic Shared Calendar - No mailbox or Contacts folder

    Ability to create Shared Calendars (companywide) that require no end-user configuration (Outlook 2016, OWA, and mobile) AND only includes that, a Shared Calendar.

    I can think of 4 different methods to create a companywide Shared Calendar: Shared Mailboxes, SharePoint, Exchange Public Folders, and Office 365 Groups. However, these methods have huge drawbacks which I will explain below based on Shared Calendars.

    Shared Mailbox
    Pros:
    - Automatically added to Outlook 2016
    - Shows up under Calendar tab as a separate calendar without user intervention.
    Cons:
    - Adds an extra mailbox and cannot be disabled.
    - Adds an extra contacts folder and…

  20. Raise hand feature in Teams Meetings

    To minimize interruptions in Teams meetings, it should be possible for all participants to signal that they want to speak by clicking a "Raise Hand" button. All other participants should be able to see who has requested to speak.
