  1. My Account should show Office 365 is installed and activated.

    Under my account, once Office 365 is installed it should show that and also show if it has been activated and when the subscription expires

  2. Alteração do site no sharepoint

    Desanimador saber que não é possível alterar nome de domínio do SharePoint, acho que é uma falha grosseira para uma empresa do porte da Microsoft, ou uma manobra mau intencionda de forçar a compra de outra conta para q isso ocorra.

  3. MS Flow app comments editable before Approve Or Reject request

    currently In MS flow mobile as well as desktop app. when we approve or reject any request then first click on approve Or reject button and then we add comment & confirmed the request.
    So i think that the comments should be editable before click on approve or reject button.

  4. implement the feature enabling to expand the width when entering the string in a modern UI.

    *English follows Japanese

    ■件名 :新 UI にて、お知らせリストの文字列を入力した際、自動的に折り返されてしまう
    ■内容: 新 UI にて、お知らせリストの文字列を入力した際、自動的に折り返されてしまう。
    そのため、新 UI におきまして文字列を入力する際に横幅を広げられる機能の実装を希望いたします。
    -----
    I am aware of the Announcement list's string wrapped its line automatically when inputting it into a modern UI. Therefore, I hope the feature to be implemented that would enable to expand the line width on modern UI.

  6. View all the PST contents and information using PST file viewer

    Users can open, view, read and edit all the information about emails and other mailbox contents using a PST file opener. This freeware software is very useful to view all the PST file contents without the use of MS Outlook. So, in order to open, view and read all the PST file data, you can employ a PST File Viewer.

  7. BUG: timezone setting in OWA

    Note sure if this is the right forum for posting bugs? But new users continue to be prompted to set their timzone even after setting it - they have to log out and log back in for the alerts to stop.

  12. Display Full Text of Address Information

    Address information in the People is not able to display long text.
    If the address is very long, User cannot see the accurate information from Contact Pane.

    Since User needs to display [Edit] window to check the full text information, User prefers the situation would be improved.

  14. PLUMBING LEAK

    Plumbing leak is a very common but serious issue if not attended for a long time. Plumbing leak occurs at washrooms. There are many common signs of beginning of plumbing leak such as excessive flow of water, continuous sound of water even when the taps are off, tiles of the toilet shaking. Some of the common areas of leakage are toilet pipe joint and shower pipe joint. Pipes in which hot and cold water are subsequently running are also prone to leakage.

  15. Cannot change the name of activity alert policies in Security&Compliance Center

    I would like you to add a feature that admins can change the name of activity alerts in Security&Compliance Center. Currently, it is impossible to change it with both GUI and Windows PowerShell.

  16. Create a maximum amount of time for reviewing password recovery claims.

    I have been waiting for days to get my email recovered. I know how important a process it is, but I have waited a full week and have heard nothing back from Microsoft. Even when calling their accounts and billing department and speaking to support staff, nothing has happened. There should be a maximum amount of days you can take to review the case before rejecting or accepting the form.

  17. Partial Matching for Search Function

    When User creates new e-mail, he/she finds the e-mail recipient from [Search] field of [To] section.
    Currently [Search] field works as front part matching to find the object (Prefix search).
    Partial matching would be also a helpful ways for users to find the appropriate e-mail recipient quickly.

  18. Excel table format

    For Excel 2016 and future versions: Give the ability to change initial formatting in Excel table so that new rows are automatically formatted correctly just by typing a new entry below the table when the table automatically expands. Currently, drop-down data validation lists and colored formatting are set the moment the table is created, and there is no way to change this formatting, from which new rows grab their formatting.

  19. Exported Audit Log CSV file - unuseable data

    Hello, in the Audit log section of Search & Investigation (part of O35 Admin), after the data are exported and tried to analyse on excel, the columns do not have all the correct data, some are on the wrong place and with over 1000 rows of data, you cannot identify patterns or any meaningful ways to analyse the downloaded data. I have spoken to your Microsoft agent who suggested I post this online to make your backend product specialist to look into this further. Perhaps they can export the data and see how user friendly it is to analyse the…

  20. Smart Folder Search Save

    When search criteria is saved in Outlook creating a Smart Folder, I notice the search criteria is saved for only a few days or a few weeks. Eventually the search criteria is deleted and the search criteria falls back to "Folder is none". Searching the web, I discovered this problem even existed as far back as 2011. Now seven years later, it appears Microsoft has yet to fix this problem. This essentially makes smart folders useless.
