  3. Fix the waiting periods for datacentre migrations

    It's absolutely insane to expect customers to have to wait an indeterminate amount of time to have their Office 365/Outlook data centre moved to their home country.

    Why not automatically have this happen as standard when a new region opens up that's closer to the end users location

  4. Update documentation to state that Transport Rules cannot be exported from Exchange 2010 then imported into Exchange Online

    Update documentation to state that Transport Rules cannot be exported from Exchange 2010 then imported to Exchange Online.

    The format of Transport rule export has changed between Exchange 2010 & Exchange 2013/2016.

    Exchange Online will not accept the exported transport rules from Exchange 2010 and I was unable to find any documentation that stated this to be the case.

  5. Preview URL's in Team conversations

    When pasting url's to conversations, specially document links, The url looks ugly, a preview of the document should be displayed. Youtube, Vimeo etc should also render the video iframe instead of the URL.

  6. Recreate the entire Microsoft Office Suite (esp. Word) from scratch

    While the concept and purpose of Microsoft Office are noble, they fail miserably in execution. I propose recreating Microsoft Office - particularly and at least Microsoft Word - from scratch.

    Some background about me: I am a mathematician with extensive use of the excellent typesetting system LaTeX. However, the engineering company I work for requires the use of Microsoft Word for creating official documentation to deliver to our clients.

    The amount of issues my colleagues and I encounter on a daily basis of using Microsoft Word continuously astounds me. From tables turning themselves into images, to uncooperative footers and headers,…

  8. Calendar online view next seven days option (like desktop version)

    I like the option to view the next seven days in the Outlook desktop client. Would be great to have this option in the online version of Outlook.

  9. Collaboration Notices

    Sharing via Office365 is wonderful. Notifications would make collaboration even more effective. When I share a document (project list, for example) with one of my employees it would be so helpful if all contributors would receive notification of changes to the document. When my staff or I update a document, a notification on my phone and computer would let me know to see the update.

  11. O365 sharepoint online site collection

    When i go to site settings>site permissions> and go to any group then there is no button to go back to site permissions and the view is changed
    if i want to go again at site permisions (as many options for groups are not available there) i have to go again on site settings and the site permissions.

    kindly redisgn or add the same buttons so we do not need have to go back and we can do the necessary work at the same page.

  13. Getting help of Office 365 issues

    Getting technical assistance through chat or phone on issues that go beyond "how to turn on the computer" or "how to save a file" etc, is nigh on impossible. Office 365 for Excel (and Word) is so full of glitches but it is impossible to find anyone at Microsoft which can discuss these issues and help to resolve them. Posting on this site lets off a bit of steam but I really if ever see any Microsoft intervention or participation in discussions.

  14. fix "all users" address list

    "All users" address list in outlook shows rooms and shared mailbox also. told by support that it is by design. but think it is a design flaw as there is a separate list for room so why should rooms show up as users?

  18. add a feature to MS Word that suggests different forms of the word.

    When I use word and writing something important, I often spend time shuffling around the words in sentences often using different related forms. There are times I do not know whether some forms are legitimate words. If you could put in a feature like you already have for synonyms that would suggest different and close versions of the same word e.g. congruent, congruence, congruently..etc., it would definitely aid with that process.

  19. Replace the standard field labelled "IM address" in an Outlook contact card with Skype Name

    What's the ongoing need for the "IM address" field in Outlook? Hasn't Microsoft migrated IM function to Skype and, if that's right, why not have a Skype name field instead. Ideally integrated such that a Skype can be intitiated from within contacts.
    Fields for common social media platforms (Twitter, Disquus etc) might not hurt either.

  20. Content View Report Not Getting generated

    In SharePoint sites, there is feature to get the log reports for the site.

    One report 'Content View' is not getting generated as logs are not generated for it by design.

    So, this report should get generated as it is beneficial for confidential sites.
