  1. Continue Updates for Office 365 - 2013

    Office 2016 is not compatible with exchange 2007 (which is in our case part of Windows SBS 2008R2, so updating exchange means buying new server).
    So we continue to use Office 2013.
    While extended support for Office 2013 (msi-install) ends in 2023 we now found out, that the support for Office 2013 (click to run) ended in Feb 2017.
    Can you please continue to provide updates to EVERY Office 2013-User?

  2. Improve the system that an inquiry reply email arrives only at the specified email address via modern support.

    Currently, I am aware of that the email address which is not specified recieves an inquiry reply email not only as specified email address. For security protection, I hope the system will be improved enables reaching email only for the specified address via modern support. Thank you.

  3. Fix the DKIM setup "CNAME missing" instruction

    In trying to Enable DKIM signing for a client's custom domain (O365 inicial domain MyClientsName.ONMICROSOFT.COM, O365 custom domain MyClientsDomain.SUBORG.TLD), with the requisite DNS entries created (a CNAME in MyClientsDomain.SUBORG.TLD selector1._domainkey.MyClientsDomain.SUBORG.TLD pointing to the DKIM TXT entry selector1-MyClientsDomain-SUBORG-TLD._domainkey.MyClientsName.ONMICROSFT.COM), the Enable option under DKIM in the Exchange Admin console gives a rather company, and I think incorrect, error, claiming that two CNAMEs need to be created, showing selector1-MyClientsDomain-SUBORG-TLD._domainkey.MyClientsName.ONMICROSOFT.COM.
    This was wrong for two reasons:
    1. they already existed (as TXT, automatically created by Microsoft, as they should be)
    2. it's misleading: Saying "you need to create two CNAMEs 'X' and 'Y'" without…

  5. Forms: Option to Block Own Access to Survey Results

    I understand that the feature I am looking in for Forms doesn't exist. The issue is this:

    I would like to be able to send out a survey and have respondents provide responses, but restrict my access to viewing the results before a given day that I would select before sending out the survey. For example, for a Form sent to students to evaluate a teacher, I would like students to be able to submit responses, but only allow the teacher to view these responses after the final grades have been submitted (for ethical reasons). We can always send out…

  6. Add the feature to view which devices all the users have Office ProPlus installed on

    I would like you to add the feature to view which devices all the users have Office ProPlus installed on at one time. Currently, you can view and manage which devices a user has Office apps installed on. But, it does not have the feature to view and manage any devices on which all the users have Office apps installed at one time. I have already requested this feature a few times, but the situation remains the same. So please deal with it as soon as possible. Thank you.

    This feedback is based on a customer voice from support SR.

  7. make it possible to print a set of information items in the Team application's wiki. For example, if I collect a project fact sheet, it woul

    For example, if I collect a project fact sheet in the wiki, it would like to be able to share it in pdf-format, and collect several items of info. Actually what I would like to do is to have a solution which will allow us to have eg. a HR Handbook compiled of pieces in a modular fashion into the latest version of the HR Handbook. In some countries only a printed (and signed) version would be valid so you could compile it with the latest instructions. Rather than having to maintain info both in a Team in Teams or…

    Due to the ”Deny access”, I am currently unable to change the "Setting of rated value in column" in case the user with "Viewed" right within a site is given the right of "Full control" within a document library and gets accessed its setting.

  11. Offer OneDrive at rest encryption also for 365 personal plans

    After I subscribed to 365 Personal I was shocked to read that files on OneDrive (personal) are NOT encrypted at rest on the MS servers. I didn't even check that before because GDrive and Dropbox do this as standard for all kinds of plans since years.

    Being very angry about this fact (but kind of forced to use 365 personal as I need my ..@outlook.com mail address instead using a business domain) I additionally subscribed to a OneDrive business plan.

    Now I'm using this in parallel to a OneDrive personal foto auto upload (which is so sad that OneDrive business…

  14. Make Outlook contact photos consistent show across PC, Office 365 and Android

    I cannot get my Outlook 16 photos to show consistently in my PC, Office 365 account and Android. Some photos migrate, some do not, some photos seem to disappear, others do not. Not matter what I do, I cannot keep most contact photos to appear in all three accounts. Worst of all seem to be Office 365 which seem to display on the photos "it likes!"

  15. outlook send to onenote

    In the 1809 (Build 10827.20150 Click-To-Run) Outlook version the "Send to OneNote" option is not present any longer via either the drop-down menu or in the ribbon bar. You can add it back to the quick launch bar however, it is grayed out and does not work. Please add this functionality back into the app to allow export from Outlook to OneNote (Desktop App) as it was very useful.

  17. Make Azure Active Directory Self-service Password Reset (SSPR) a part of core functionality

    I don't understand why Azure AD requires a premium upgrade to get SSPR functionality when Windows 10 and most other O/S have it as part of their core functionality. The cost of SSPR ends up being a barrier to implementing strong access policies that have a negative impact of generating most of the calls to the help desk, i.e. "I forgot my password".

  18. Please remove password reset option for external users in admin portal page

    When we send out invitations to access our SPO environment to external users from our tenant, there is an entry that shows up in our 'active users' group for our tenant.

    This 'user' entry includes a lengthy username string that can not be logged into, by default.

    if the external user, with their own MS Live account, has a password problem and they call us for help with logging into their Live account and our service desk uses our admin portal to reset their password on their external user account it does NOTHING to their real Live account AND makes…

  20. Personal Notes in ICONS

    Hello, I would like to add a note in folders or documents that I can see when I
    place the cursor over the Icon. Nowadays we can see data like Type, size and date modified of document.
    I think would be very helpful to add our own notes in this section. Thank you.
