  1. possibly have O365 capability to forward mail from online to online, not just online to exchange.

    Currently, product limitations in O365 prevent mail going from O365 to Gmail....there has to be an Exchange server on premisis to be able to do this instead of direct online to online. This would be called a split delivery system. It is supported by Google to O365, but it is not reciporcated.

  4. Don't remove features from the 2016 Excel perpetual version. (IFS no longer supported)

    Removing features from the perpetual version is not right. The Microsoft Office senior tech claimed I never should have had it with 2016. It worked until this week (3/19). The IFS feature is now only on the subscription version.

  5. Allow the conversion to threaded comments to be undone or rolled back.

    Converting to Threaded Comments has caused a major problem to us. One particular workbook has a comment in every cell with a numeric value to state which customer/supplier it refers to and is much easier to use locally than in Sharepoint. However, since the conversion, when used locally all we can see when we hover over a comment is [Threaded comment] followed by a lot of other text, so have to open and enlarge the comment box to see the text we put in. This is taking a lot more time than just hovering over it and seeing the customer/supplier…

  6. Unlicensed AAD User is able to access SharePoint Online?

    I have just been in contact with O365 Online Support to try and find an answer with regard to AAD users without a Office 365 License that are able to access SharePoint Online? Unfortunately they were unable to tell me and told me to post it here.

    Is this behaviour expected or is this a bug?

  7. Produce a paired down version of Word

    Without frills but rock solid (and one the on-line tech team will be totally familiar with if it should crash). Word processing software does not need to mimic DTP, especially when such additions make it fragile and flaky.

  9. List export limits confusing in modern GUI

    In modern GUI a list with 14,000 items will happily export in Excel.

    A view configured by metadata tags reducing the list to 150 items will not export?

    Crazy.

  10. Teams Setting Option

    Provide a user selection option in Teams for which window will be displayed when opening. Calendar instead of chat for example.

  11. MyAnalytics to identify common and repetitive tasks

    It would be great if MyAnalytics would highlight my most common tasks, e.g.
    - Working in the same Excel document
    - Moving and tagging files
    - Answering the same type of emails

    This could help the user to reflect over priorities and automation.

  13. power apps default environment without cds

    Currently the default environment for power apps contains mandatory CDS. I don't want that my users use CDS , I want another controlled/managed environment with CDS. I'd like to disable the use of CDS on default environment

  14. allow an option for the calendar to INPUT times - dropdowns just down work well and always "pop" into a different time than you selected.

  15. Provide Microsoft Teams as a Cloud Service without requiring any other Office 365 services

    Some companies have 100% on-prem solution but want to add Teams. It is very difficult to do this because Teams has its hooks into so many other services. Skype for Business Online did this very well. Make Teams do the same thing.

  17. An option needed to ignore accents and Low-High letters in queries for local and linked tables. Also multilingual characters like ü,è,á,etc.

    Instead of making functions in any field of any query, it would be better having an option in o365 MsAccess Desktop to ignore special characters or capital letters. For instance: a field called "cliName" have 4 rows: Maria; María, maría, maria. A select in a query would be: select cliName from aTable where cliName like "Maria" . The result would be: Maria, María, maría, maria.

    Now you only have 1 result, but we need the 4 rows to be shown, not only 1.

  18. Allow Outlook Apple iOS to sync local contacts from one Outlook account to multiple iOS devices.

    Allow Outlook Apple iOS to sync local contacts from one Outlook account to multiple iOS devices. Currently you are only allowed to sync to a single device and the ability to have your contacts locally on multiple devices (iPhone, iPad, etc..) would be a great help.

  20. "print comments" option for the online version of 365 Word

    At the moment if I want to print comments on a document I must download it. We have students, faculty, staff who use the online version only. This issue precludes them from printing comments. This would benefit students and faculty who use the free online version of the product.
    Additionally, for those who have the paid version downloading multi-lingual documents, languages like Hebrew become illegible in the transfer to the app version.
