  1. Allow users to have multiple signatures in the Outlook Web Application

    It would be nice if a single user could have multiple signatures to select from in the outlook web application and apply a different signature to each email if they desire.

  2. 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

  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. Office 365 Home - Personal email domain availability

    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…

  5. 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.

  6. 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!

  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.

    (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

  11. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. more control of grouping emails

    emails are grouped by date with annoying group headers (today, yesterday, last week, etc.) In outlook you can remove these headings of the groups to make it cleaner. In webmail you can not. Please fix this.

  17. Global Email signatures across platforms

    When using 365 business it would be great if i could add a unique signature to each user from my admin control panel. that would automatically download to the users platforms such as iPhone, Windows Phone, Outlook office 2013, or Outlook online.
    A signature which can have hyperlinked images, whilst being individual to each user (for their name and direct line)

  18. Eliminate "top results" in Outlook searches

    I recommend eliminating top results, or at least making it an option. Most often, when I search for something, I need to see the sequence of emails and having some set off as "top results" defeats this. Additionally, I'm hard pressed to understand just what qualifies something as a "top result" when using one or two key words.

  20. 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.
