  1. enable import of email encryption certs to the cloud so users can send encrypted email outside their org with OWA

    Currently, it i impossible to store email encryption PKI certs for external users in cloud Office 365 services. As a result it is not possible to send encrypted email to external recipients using OWA (It is possible with Outlook desltop, but not OWA). Note that Office 365 encryption does not verify the user and is therefore not a secure encryption technology. Please allow the importation of encryption certificates for external users to cloud exchange servers.

    Microsoft should be leading the world in making it as easy as possible to exchange encrypted email. One wonders why it is a buried, almost…

  4. When permissions are given to an external user, the user is created automatically in contact list exchange.

    We have around 2000 external users who uses sharepoint online for projects in our tenant. When a external user creates a account to access a project, the user is automatically created in the contact list. This is a problem if a user creates the account with a private mail address. Because when someone in our organziation tries to send a e-mail to the buisness mail adress to a person who has private mailadress in the contact list, the mail is routed to the private mail address. It should be optional if we want the user to be created in contact…

  5. Attività ricorrenti

    Richiesta di implementazione. Quando creo un'attività ricorrente, l'attività si crea in automatico solo dopo aver completato quella precedente. A mio parere sarebbe utile invece avere la possibilità di visualizzare un'attività ricorrente per tutte le ricorrenze create, senza che sia stata completata quella precedente. Esempio: un'attività con ricorrenza giornaliera che inizia lunedì 2 aprile dovrebbe vedersi in elenco per tutti i giorni seguenti (3 aprile, 4 aprile, 5 aprile, etc...). L'utilità di questa funzione risiede nel poter pianificare meglio la gestione del lavoro, infatti così è possibile vedere tutte le attività dei giorni successivi. Attualmente questo non è possibile, infatti se…

  6. Allow for conversation grouping based on standard “references” message header regardless of subject line changes

    Other mail clients have support for email threading with subject line changes based on previous message-ids appearing in the “references” email header. O365 appears to prioritize the subject line - a reply with a new subject line appears to always create a new conversation in the UI. Giving the option to group replies with different subject lines in a conversation would be immensely helpful.

  10. Allow teachers to release assignments when an assignment is completed rather than a set date.

    This would allow students to work at their own pace and encourage differentiated instruction. If teachers could require certain assignments to be completed before moving forward to the next assignment they could still set release dates but require students to complete prerequisite assignments.

  11. Improve Ease of Installing New Applications

    I recently purchased Project to add to existing Account. I got numerous emails confirming new product and directing me to sign in to my Office365 Account, but there were no detailed instructions for how to assign licenses to an account, which took 40 minutes with Tech Support to assign to one user....there has to be an easier way to alert user what steps to take and to make the process simpler.

  12. FastTrack migration services... add gDrives inside gTeams to availble source.

    Google Teams can contain their own gDrive folders. I do not want to migrate the gTeam sites, but a google customer can create a shared gDrive in their gTeam site. We often have requests to migrate the folders in these gDrives to O365.
    I have only found a couple 3rd parties that do this. Can you support this data source in the future so i do not have to go to a 3rd party service?

  14. Create a Library Template keeping column default values (including folder level)

    We have standard folder structure we use for our projects, and a standard content type. We use column defaults at the library and folder level. However, when we use the library to create a template, the defaults don't carry over. The folders are there, but the defaults all need to be set.

  15. Display the top image of the video as the thumbnail automatically in Office365 Video

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    Office 365 ビデオのサムネイルにて動画の最初の画面が表示されない動作について

    Display the top image of the video as the thumbnail automatically in Office365 Video
    ***************
    ■Description(内容):
    Office 365 ビデオのサムネイルについて"動画をアップロードしてから自動的に動画のトップ画面がサムネイルとして表示される、もしくはサムネイルの管理設定にて動画のトップ画面が選択できる状態" となるよう改善してほしい。
    詳細内容:
    動画がチャンネルにアップロードされた後、自動的にサムネイルに設定される画像が動画のトップ画面にならない。
    サムネイルの管理設定から変更しよう思っても、トップの画面が出てこない場合がある。
    動画のトップ画面のスクリーンショットを取得してから、アップロードして設定することは可能だが、 本来は手動ではなく、アップロードしてから自動的にビデオの最初の画面がサムネイルとして表示される動作が望ましいので動作を改善してほしい。

    I have noticed that the automatically generated thumbnail will not be the top image of the video when I upload the video to the channel. I tried to change the thumbnail manually from the list of pre-generated thumbnails in “Manage” menu in Office365 Video, however, sometimes the top image of the video is not even included in the list. Although I can set the top image as the…

  16. Save Review/Track Changes Markup Options with document. Starting over each time is a real nuisance.

    Some change tracking only needs to follow insertions/deletions and not formatting - especially since tracking format and comments 'shrinks' the viewing area for the doc. Having to reset Options every time a doc is opened makes editing/tracking that much more difficult and time consuming. If Options were saved with the doc, then resetting each time wouldn't be necessary.

  17. freetext search for 'folder name' in outlook when filing an email.

    for heavy business users with lots of folders, moving and filing can be a pain with unnecessary scrolling and clicking. an idea would be to enable freetext search when selecting 'move' email that would quickly search for the folder/subfolder name and allow the email to drop. An extension to that would be to recommend other emails in the conversation to also be filed once one is (however, this can be optional).

  18. Allow Users To Change Their Own Profile Pic With OWA Deactivated

    Allow Office365 users to edit their own profile pic, when (Office on the web), OWA has been disabled.

    The ability for users to edit their own profile pic from portal.office.com was recently removed by Microsoft. This feature should be made available again, so that user's can edit their own pic.

    Without this feature, Office365 administrators must change every user's profile pic.

  19. Toggle notifications for Outlook shared or delegate folders

    We have crucial alerts that come in via a shared folder, but notifications for shared folders is turned off by design. We understand that's great for a lot of people, but we really need these notifications to make sure we don't miss these alerts.

  20. In Word and Excel, make the colored bar (blue / green) down the left side of the File tab wider ...

    ... to allow more of the filenames that appear at the bottom to be visible. Currently the bar is so narrow as to make the listing file names useless.
