  1. Common Outlook Errors

    Nothing is considered to be more irritating than unable to send email messages when you desperately need it.
    There are many reasons why Outlook wouldn’t send/receive an email.
    In that case choosing a best tool is most difficult task.
    Here I share with you the list of best tools according to my own experience:

  4. Allow external Skype connections by default, allowing organisations to opt out if required. Currently just too complicated to use.

    To communicate with external Skype addresses users face changing both their own and the remote configuration, this is too high a barrier for use, I'm struggling to keep Skype as the VC of choice.

  5. Text App Improvements (reusable content and table merge)

    Bring back reusable content within modern sites.
    The modern Text app is extremely limited in terms of functionality. For example, users cannot insert from a reusable snippet library (note that I know that currently many of the WCM features are not available in modern pages, and in fact you cannot activate the feature without it throwing an error). You also cannot do basic table manipulations such as merging cells. Without a decent content editor tool, modern pages are a poor cousin to its previous publishing counterpart.

  7. Allow option to consolidate archive into primary mailbox when moving mailboxes from on-prem to Exchange Online

    During mailbox migrations to Office 365, an option to consolidate ( and remove ) the online archive would be highly beneficial. It would eliminate the need to move items post migration and the end-user can leverage all the messages rather than using the clunky archive.

  8. AzureAD PowerShell module should follow PowerShell best practices

    Cmdlets should use [switch] for boolean parameters where appropriate. You should only have to type Get-AzureADUser -All without $true.
    (https://office365.uservoice.com/forums/264636-general/suggestions/33843148-provide-consistent-powershell-switches-between-mod)

    Cmdlets should decide on sensible defaults for pipeline input ByValue. Now cmdlets accepts all parameter values both ByValue and ByPropertyName. You can not easily pipe from one cmdlet to another like this: Get-AzureADGroup -SearchString 'mygroup' | Add-AzureADGroupMember -RefObjectId [guid]

    Parameter consistency: Add-AzureADGroupMember -RefObjectId, but Remove-AzureADGroupMember -MemberId for example.

    Nullable bool should not show anything if value is null. If you create a new Office 365 group and then run Get-AzureADGroup | Format-List, the property DirSyncEnabled shows as "False"…

  9. Do not relaease new versions until it is tested and works 100%

    I have updated to Office 365 2016 it turns out the following problems are known.

    1. OneDrive for Business Next Generation Sync Client does not sync "SharePoint 'Sites'" to the local drive have to revert back to OneDrive for Business 2013 or 2016 for "SharePoint 'Sites'" to sync to the local drive
    2. Surface Pro 3 pen does not work on Office 365 2016 have to revert back to 2013 version
    3. OneNote 2013 notebook files will not open/work on OneNote

    MICROSOFT DO NOT RELEASE NEW VERSIONS UNTIL IT WORKS 100%.

  14. Include Collaboration and Co-authoring for Mac Office 2016 in the next update.

    It does not seem practical for me to re-purchase Office just to be able to have that collaboration and co-authoring feature. This was not mentioned at the time of purchase and I am saddened that I will be unable to work productively because the program I paid for isn't fully compatible with that of the rest of my team.

  19. Save Reading pane setting in Exchange

    It always puzzled me that of all the settings Outlook pulls from Exchange it can't save this little thing. Most our users use Bottom setting and having to change it every time they swap PC just feels annoying.

  20. After Editing a calendar item it should return you to the month/week/day view in which that item resides, not the current month

    After editing an item in a month that is not the current month it returns you to the current month - it would be better if it returned you to the month in which the item you just edited resides.
