  1. PowerShell MFA for CSP Delegated Admin Privileges

    Currently the PowerShell module that supports MFA does not support CSP Delegated Admin Privileges. Considering the scope and power of a DAP account this is a pretty wicked security hole.

  2. SMTP Relay via Office 365 - Keep copy in Sent Items

    When using SMTP relay from on premise software or device, Office 365 does not keep a copy of the email in the Sent Items folder - if the from address is a valid/licensed internal mailbox or shared mailbox (e.g. quotes@... / orders@...)

    This feature is available from competitors (e.g. Google)

    When using an internal system to send emails e.g. quotes, orders etc, it is essentail to keep a copy in the sent items folder for CRM purposes!

    The only alternative is to BCC the email to an internal mailbox and this adds a lot of email management and frustration for…

  3. provide a version of Office 365 for Ubuntu/Linux!

    Up to know it is not possible to use Office 365 on Ubuntu but more and more students are using Ubuntu on their computers. So especially for university contracts and also in general would it be great to have the possibility to use Office 365 on Ubuntu.

  5. 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.

  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…

  7. Outlook is not syncing and giving a "Need password" message

    I have several users that over the last 1-2 months increasingly have experienced that their Outlook wont sync. All of them then experience as message in the bottom of the Outlook screen that says "Need password", but if you click it, you just get a quick blink of a white screen, and then it disappears.

    While the issue is present for the users, it is not possible for them to create a new Outlook profile, as it wouldn't connect to the mailbox. I had luck with just rebooting my own computer, that fixed the issue for me, but only until…

  8. Allow endusers to access quarantine for shared mailboxes

    Currently, only admins can view the quarantine for shared mailboxes. Users are automatically redirected to their own quarantine. I'd love for there to be a default for users who are delegates of a mailbox to have a way to get to the shared mailbox quarantine queue. If they are allowed to view the inbox/folders they should be allowed to control the spam.

  10. Increase message per minute limit

    The 30 message per minute limit causes problems for software that needs to send out to many users. Now that we've migrated to Exchange Online our payroll system can no longer send out payslips because of this feature. Very limiting and a very low limit. It should at least be able to be configured to allow accounts to be exempted or have different limits.

  12. Highlighted content web part -> Add custom columns in the view

    the higlighted content web part within a modern page does not allow showing other columns than Title, modified and Modified by.
    This is not handsome, e.g. if showing upcoming events (stored in a sharepoint List), the most important informations are not shown (e.g. Starttime , Location ...)

    For more Info, please refer to the following discussion:

  14. 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.

  16. Support mobile app: Add support for PowerApps forms

    Currently PowerApps forms for SharePoint not showing in SharePoint Mobile App. Because of it, in 2018, SharePoint is still not mobile friendly.

    Yes, OOB SharePoint forms show up, but they are completely static and extremely limited in functionality. We really need PowerApps to be displayed in the SharePoint Mobile app.

  17. More ‘Smooth’ Effects

    Video creation using powerpoint is quite good, but still is not as good as after effect of other video editor. Very unfortunate because it’s only less than a fraction of a second. We’ll be very happy if the smooth timing can be improved so we can create HQ video just rely on powerpoint.

  18. Office365 group calendar - turn off edit notification

    Hi,

    When I add new event to group calendar I can turn off option: "Send an invitation to the group". But I can't turn it off, when I'm editing my event.

    I would like to set default group setting to not posting notifications about group calendar events.
    It also would be nice, if I could just unmark this option while editing.

    Sincerly,
    Piotr

  19. Adding Powerpoint Video Timeline

    We All know that right now powerpoint has widely use for video making, but there is a difficulty to sync voice with video or to add effect on exact time. My suggestion is, this surely easier if Microsoft add ‘timeline’ feature just like majority of video editor so it would be easier for us to configure audio and video effect for better result

  20. Co-Authoring in Office Desktop w/ 3rd Party Storage (Egnyte/Box/Dropbox/etc)

    Currently, to co-author a document via the desktop version of office the files must be stored in OneDrive/Sharepoint. Please enable the desktop version of office to support co-authoring when their document is stored and opened on third party storage providers (such as Egnyte/Box/Dropbox/etc).
