  1. 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.

  2. The ability to pick your own colour of the initials in the user pic in outlook web app

    The Initials that have replaced the silhouette as the User pic in outlook 365 web app are good but it would be nice to be able to pick you own colour choice.

  3. 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".

  4. 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.

  5. 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

  6. 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…

  8. Add the ability to disable "Request to reset user's password" email notifications.

    Please allow companies to disable the "Request to reset user's password" notification's if password resets are disabled in Office 365. We have internal processes in place for employee password resets and our Office 365 administrators are not typically involved.

    The best solution would be a custom message that companies could display to employees who attempt to reset their passwords in O365 - this way the employee would be notified about the correct reset process.

  9. Provide access to the online archive on mobile devices (i.e. iPhone, Android)

    The online archive doesn't show up on mobile phones at all regardless of the way you try to access it. Not displayed in the native email phone app, Outlook app, OWA for iPhone app, Safari browser, Chrome browser, etc.
    Please add this functionality to mobile devices.

  10. Enable Externally Visible Skype for Business Profile Pictures

    In SfB on premises you have the ability to set "EnablePresencePhotoOptions" to true under New-CsClientPolicyEntry.

    This then allows you enable users with the ability to specify a URL for a profile picture in the SfB client.

    In SfB online, you're unable to run New-CsClientPolicyEntry, and/or can't enable EnablePresencePhotoOptions.

    A a result you cannot specify a publicly accessible image URL for profile pictures and meetings with user external to your Office 365 will be presented with the default blue avatar picture.

  11. 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.

  12. 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?

  13. 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.

  14. allow contact list sharing in OWA

    Sharing of Contact Lists can be done in Outlook but not in OWA. We really need a way to share Contact Lists but our users are only using the OWA version of Office 365 due to varying platforms not being supported.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  18. 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.

  20. 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.
