  1. Implementation of an config element to check logs periodically for the Office Deployment Tool

    I would like you to add an additional element as a Logging element which could check logs periodically (i.e. on a weekly basis) for the Office Deployment Tool configuration.

  2. Need to Quarantine the mobile device/mobile devices if the users are members of a particular DL or group.

    Need to Quarantine the mobile device/mobile devices if the users are members of a particular DL or group. Also the notification should be received by the Admin to allow it or block it. As many times it is not possible to give all users the Intune License due to license crunch. So it seems fair to get this kind of option in Exchange Admin Center of Office 365.

  3. Be able to add a "Special Distribution Group" for external email addresses WITHOUT THE NEED TO ADD THEM to contacts first

    Be able to add a "Special Distribution Group" for external email addresses WITHOUT THE NEED TO ADD THEM to contacts first

    This distribution group should be easy to use like the local distribution group in Outlook.

    The owner of this special distribution group should be able to add new external members from a CSV format or pasting it from a notepad.

    Also, the external addresses shouldn't be visible to Global Address Book

    Thank you

  5. Prioritize Sharepoint Online search results

    In Sharepoint Online, when I enter a search term I should be able to prioritize the results that have the term in their file name. As it stands, if I search my libraries for "business plan", I get 50 results before I get the file that has "business plan" in it's file name. Per support, I am currently unable to prioritize the results based on the file name.

  7. resolve the search function bug in Outlook for MacOS after Mohave upgrade

    search function in outlook doesn't work after MacOS upgrade. Microsoft engineers have known of this bug since at least November 2018. There are no updates and it still does not work correctly. Indexing no longer works reliably.

  10. On task flags, change "No Date" and "Custom" colors to not match "Today"

    In Outlook and OneNote, the flag color for items due today and on a custom date are both red, making them indistinguishable. Red should be reserved for items due today or overdue. Some other color should be used for "Custom" and "No Date" (which is red in Outlook mail but buff in OneNote). Without this change, the task feature is less usable, since I cannot tell at a glance if I need to get a task done quickly or not for a custom date in the future.

  11. When installing for the first time, Office asks you to sign in, you have to click twice in the text field to enter your email address.

    When installing Office apps for the first time, Office asks you to sign in when you open an app for the first time, i noticed that you have to click twice in the text field to enter your email address instead of just once. I work in the IT field and install Office all the time, i've noticed this every single time I install Office. We mostly work with Business Premium if that helps.

  12. Delivery delay for email

    Allow delay delivery in Outlook to start at a custom time rather than 5:00pm in office 365. I work on a lot of emails late in the night and would rather they be sent in the morning at 8:00 am so recipients are not disturbed while sleeping.

  13. Implement the new insert row or column feature in word to the rest of office

    The feature which was brought out in word a few months ago where you can hover at the side or above the table and click the plus to add a new column or row respectively is really useful and I like it. Can this feature please be applied to Outlook and OneNote (where I also use tables) and probably other Office programs.

  14. "Create New folder" button in Share/Upload interface for iOS.

    I am using iOS and often when I decide to upload a PDF document I have acessed I often need to create a new folder. Instead I have to cancel the upload go back to the OneDrive app - create the new folder - then go back to Safari - hit share and upload to the newly created folder. Way to cumbersome.

  17. Excel Onedrive runtime error

    Here is a link to a post I created on stack overflow that summarizes my issue. Office support gave me a temporary solution to turn off automatic updates and revert to the version that was working.
