  3. Provide a mechanism in Skype for Business to allow external users to utilize the call ID to join a screen sharing session. GTM has this.

    Trying to get GTM users to move to Skype for Business and one of their principal issues is having to wait for an emailed URL to reach the party they want to do an impromptu meeting with -- for doing support with our customers. GTM provides a integer or ID that can be verbally passed to the other party and entered on a webpage to hook the two parties together to screen share. Hoping Skype for Business will allow similar in the future so I can sway my users to move to Skype for Business.

  5. Make ODT available for O365 2016

    My primary job is OS and App deployment via CM12. This means that I need the ability to proof out things like O365 versions and the related processes for getting the data to my users. Having ODT working would really be quite helpful even for preview versions.

  6. De-Duplication of Data and Monitoring

    It would be really Enterprise quality if the Office 365 Cloud offered file management services across all platforms for Potential de-duplication of data and monitoring of files like .pst files that corporations may not want their employees saving.

    Basically, provide a top end 1st class data management and monitoring tool that works across SharePoint, OneDrive, Yammer, Etc...

    This tool could Identify the same data that is located in many places across the Office 365 cloud storage services. Administrators could then remove duplicated data or perhaps create links where necessary to a single location for the data.

    The Tool should easily…

  8. Lync Web App Connection Messages

    The Lync Web App connecting to a Skype for Business meeting frequently displays a message that "server connection has been lost", followed immediately by "server connection has been restored". It can get distracting. I would like to have a higher threshold (5 - 10 sec., configurable?) before it notifies me. A small online/offline icon could work too.

  9. Enable Custom Actions in "Document Set" Content Item Menu

    It was possible to create custom actions in "Document Set" from SharePoint Designer to manually start workflows. It is not possible anymore.

  10. Allow Outlook for MAC address book and contacts to be managed.

    Currently on a MAC you cannot access contacts when sending a mail and if for some weird Microsoft reason your contacts aren't in your outlook address book you can't just send you have to search all contacts and select them and send from there. It also means they do not appear on your iPhone either. What is needed is a way of managing contacts properly on a MAC as there is on Windows.

  12. Rearrange the phone number fields

    Please rearrange the phone number fields so that they show Business, Cell, Fax, Business 2. Or make a layout option in settings that is geared to businesses. If you went into settings you could choose Business or Personal. Then some fields are in a permanent more business friendly arrangement. But if you are using it for personal use some of the business fields just don't appear.

  15. Publish the public information about the maximum number of calendars that users can add to the left pane in Outlook client

    I would like you to publish the public information about the maximum number of calendars which users can add to the left pane in Outlook client.

    Currently, we have to explain the information to our end users based on our experience, because there is no public information about this. Therefore, we cannot convince the end users to understand it without the public information.

    It would be great if there is a clear public information about this so that we could easily explain to the end users.

  16. Unable to export to .pdf in Project 2016

    Found a bug when trying to export a project to a .pdf. The application becomes unresponsive and you have to force close it. A work around, which is not ideal, is to select file > save as > and then change the file type to a PDF.

    Please look into this, thanks!

  17. Enhance notes

    Notes has been left behind:
    1. Notes cannot contain anything except plaintext
    2. In OWA 2013, notes doesn't even have an app and, instead, is only accessible via the "Notes" folder in Mail
    3. In OWA 2013, notes doesn't even have its own unique interface and, instead, uses the Mail interface
    4. Notes created on another devices and initially opened in Outlook are opened in an extremely crude, 135 x 66 window in the very upper left-hand corner of the screen which is easy to miss.

    Enhance notes!

  18. make office 365 more similar to outlook to end complexity issues for users and support. rules, templates, sent item locations same on both

    it should be more seamless when i switch from outlook to office 365, they should work together better

    rules should be the same on both, and remove the limitation of 64kb - that is so 1979
    templates should function similarly for emails on both
    saving sent items should be specified similarly in both

  19. position of "flag" icon is to close to "x" - delete icon

    Please add some option which allows user to choose position of "flag" on email. In outlook 2016 this icon is just next to "X" which deletes the message, so user often ends with deleting the message instead of flag it as an important one! It happens to me regulary and this is unacceptable and stongly user unfriendly.

  20. Skype for Business IM auto-responds with a user's Outlook out of office message

    As a client communicating with a vendor (federated organization), I have limited visibility of my vendor's presence statuses. I do not see the purple "out of office" when my vendor is on PTO.

    It would be incredibly helpful if, when I IM'd a person outside of my organization that had Outlook set up with an out of office message, that it auto-respond with that message in IM as well.
