  1. 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

  2. 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".

  3. 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.

  4. Use of Drop down list within Office Forms

    Can we have the option of a drop down menu within Office Forms. This is available within Google Forms and is a very nice feature.

  5. User Profile Mobile Phone Number

    I'm surprised this is still a thing, but if you populate the mobile phone attribute for users in AD, you apparently can (though not in my experience) get said attribute to sync to your Azure AD profile. However, it DOES NOT sync to your SharePoint online/Delve profiles.

    This is a fairly annoying thing that's been on people's radar for about 3 years, apparently. I found a powershell script that is supposed to get around the issue, but so far I haven't gotten it to work.

    Having that attribute be one of the ones that syncs from Azure AD profiles would…

  6. Password manager as Office 365 app!

    I think that some passwords management like as 1password or LastPass should be included as own Microsoft app in Office 365.

    All companies thinking about giving access for their services out of Office 365 world (don't live in bubble please :D, excel is not right way for everything) to employers.

    I think that solution from Microsoft in one "eco-system" should be the best!

    Do you think about it please?

  8. Enable reports to view the usage of Visio Pro.

    I would like to see if users who have a visio Pro license are actually using this license. There is no option at the moment. This would be very welcome in the report area.

  9. Reset or clear autocomplete cache globally for OWA

    In a larger organization 300+ users, we find that the autocomplete cache over time gets filled with contacts that are infrequently used yet sometimes staff end of sending internal emails to these contacts that should have been sent to an internal contact instead.

    Would like ability to reset/clear the autocomplete cache for OWA or to disable it for certain users or all users.

  10. allow enterprises to automatically configure OneDrive for Business upon first time login

    Currently, OneDrive for business can be automated to a point where adminstrators can launch OneDrive Setup but the user still has to key in their email address to set it up. This makes it harder to ensure folder redirection for every user works. If we could allow the first time setup to be automated, Orgaisations can ask users to restart their workstation once to confirm folder redirection will take place.

  11. enable filters for Sharepoint Recycle bin

    Enable filters for the Recycle Bin view which allow selection of date range and user. This would greatly help in recovery of large amounts of inadvertently deleted data which a particular user has done (such as by "cleaning up" local folders which were actually synced.

    It is not possible to add a user to a empty teamchannel, so the channel is lost if you delete the owner. Why its not possible as ADMIN to setup a new owner? Without this possibility datalost is incoming....

  13. Delete Attachments from Outlook Web

    Users cannot delete attachments from Outlook Web emails.
    (Outlook.Office365.com).

    Users want the ability to keep the email, but remove the attachments after viewing so that their mailbox is kept lean.

    Some users only access Outlook web and this feature is not available, as it is only available in the client.

  14. Be able to set expiration dates on accounts as you can in active directory

    In AD an account can have an expiration date which essentially flips the "BlockCredential" bit at a future time.

  15. Recycle bin search utility

    Would really be great to have a search utility in the recycle bin in one drive and office 365 so that don't have to browse through all the pages in the recycle bin to find and restore.

  16. Azure AD Groups with more than 50,000 Users

    Hello O365 Team

    Is it possible to increase the Azure AD group membership limits to more than 50,000 Users. We have scenarios were we would like to have groups with well over 100,000. For example could the limit be increased to support 500,000 to 1,000,000.

    We opened a case with MS Support and they mentioned the following:

    Unfortunately there is no way we can currently add more than 50k users to a group and as informed Nesting is the only available workaround. We at Microsoft are not aware of any Powershell scripts available to increase the limit as we do…

  17. Camera uploads on business account

    We have 5 business accounts and the only thing stopping us from getting rid of Dropbox and only using Microsoft OneDrive for our cloud storage is that we do not have camera uploads function for business. We use our business phones to take pictures of our inventory on a daily basis and need the photos uploaded to the cloud so we can email to customers. Please enable camera uploads for business accounts. Thank you.

  18. Allow Partners to convert users to shared mailboxes

    Currently, only Global Administrators can convert a user account to a shared mailbox. This makes it difficult for Partners with admin rights to do what they need to do in a timely manner.
    I recommend allowing global permissions for Partners to be able to make these changes, as it seems like a massive oversight.

  20. printing directly from SharePoint online / Please add a print button to the ribbon

    We cannot PRINT pictures directly from SharePoint Online.
    The only option is to download and save the file and then open and print it. This takes to much effort to print a picture.

    We would like to print directly from SharePoint.

    Please add a print button to the ribbon containing sharing/download/remove/copy.?
