General

Welcome to the General UserVoice forum. This is your place to suggest ideas on how to improve features in Office 365 that don’t fit into any of the other forums listed here.

How it works

  • Check out the ideas others have suggested and vote on your favorites
  • If you have a suggestion that’s not listed yet, submit your own — 25 words or less, please
  • Include one post per suggestion or idea

Thanks for joining our community and helping improve the general features in Office 365!

Need Tech Support? Please see the Office365 forums in the O365 Community.

I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

        Hi everyone. Thanks so much for taking the time to leave feedback on the O365 UserVoice site. I am declining here, because there’s a separate Planner UserVoice site, and that is truly the best place to provide this input and make sure the right engineers see your request. Unfortunately, I can’t transfer votes from one UserVoice site to another, so you’ll have to go to https://planner.uservoice.com and either find a comparable suggestion or create a new one. I genuinely apologize for the inconvenience, and hope to make this a more seamless experience as we continually improve this feedback channel.

      • Copy Planner Tasks and Buckets

        Add the option to copy planner tasks and buckets within the same plan and to other plans. Trello has this functionality (so does Asana and basically every pm tool) and it is extremely important. Creating plans is VERY SLOW without this.

          • Enable a beep or chime when person joins PSTN Conference

            When someone joins a PSTN Conference, admins only have two options: announce full name (which can be distracting) or do nothing (which means the leader has no notification if they are no at their PC). Intercall, Webex and others simply have a chime that dings to notify attendees that a new person has joined a call. This would be VERY helpful.

              Thanks for providing this suggestion. Skype for Business has a separate feedback site that would love to take your input. In fact, there’s already a suggestion posted that seems to reflect this idea: https://www.skypefeedback.com/forums/299910--recently-released/suggestions/17006863-need-ability-to-change-entry-exit-announcements. Please add your votes to this suggestion to make sure the Skype for Business feature teams see your feedback.

            • Remove Archive button from Outlook 2016 mac

              Users of Outlook application on Apple Mac with an Office 365 Exchange account require the Archiving button icon to be removed from the messages column. It would be beneficial to leave the button in the ribbon. Currently, this causes the issue when hovering over the attachment icon it changes to the archive icon.
