  1. Camera uploads on business account

    We have 5 business accounts and the only thing stopping us from getting rid of Dropbox and only using Microsoft OneDrive for our cloud storage is that we do not have camera uploads function for business. We use our business phones to take pictures of our inventory on a daily basis and need the photos uploaded to the cloud so we can email to customers. Please enable camera uploads for business accounts. Thank you.

  2. Resize columns in Contents (site contents) for SharePoint Online

    There is no ability to resize the columns in the Contents (site contents) page. So for any apps, libraries or lists that have a title (name) with a decent amount of characters it gets cut off and it's hard to quickly tell what the title is. We have sites with numerous document libraries with long names where it takes a long time to pinpoint a particular library. You have to hover over the title on each library to get the full name. We should have the same functionality as you do when in a list or library where you can…

  4. Office 365 Gallery

    A solution to host a photo gallery similar to 365 video. With hundreds of images taken on a weekly basis on our site a more efficient way to search and share resources. This would allow staff to upload images to a central gallery helping to avoid any duplication.

    Instead of having channels like in 365 video, you would have an option to create albums setting security permissions the same as in 365 video. With an option to download the photo or link directly to a document.

  5. Make the MSOnline cmdlets PSCore6 compatible so they can be used on Mac / Linux platforms

    See the following github issue: https://github.com/PowerShell/PowerShell/issues/3776

    These symptoms are preventing programmatic administration of office365 from non-windows PCs.

  6. Make the Content Search WebPart (CSWP) available to all plans

    Since the CSWP offers a caching mecanism that increase the performance of search results, I think it should be available to all plans and not only to E3 plans. We can achieve mostly the same results using the "Search result webpart" but this one has no caching. Making the CSWP available to all plans is a win-win for MS and customers as it lowers the server usage (through Caching) and it allows more functionnality to customers.

  7. Onedrive For Business Administration

    Please allow greater administrative control over Onedrive for Business. Some things that would help are:

    Allow admins the option to prevent creation of subsites.

    Add reporting/auditing for site/subsite creation.

    Add greater control of sharing. Currently for Onedrive we can only turn off external sharing for the entire tenant. It would be nice to have greater control over sharing. For instance, some users should be able to share externally while others can only share internally. Or possibly, create sharing policies where users can be restricted to only sharing with members of certain groups that are defined by admins.

  8. Recycle bin search utility

    Would really be great to have a search utility in the recycle bin in one drive and office 365 so that don't have to browse through all the pages in the recycle bin to find and restore.

  9. Allow Partners to convert users to shared mailboxes

    Currently, only Global Administrators can convert a user account to a shared mailbox. This makes it difficult for Partners with admin rights to do what they need to do in a timely manner.
    I recommend allowing global permissions for Partners to be able to make these changes, as it seems like a massive oversight.

  11. Azure AD - Custom Admin Roles

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory/active-directory-assign-admin-roles-azure-portal

    Azure AD provides a list of predefined Admin Roles, but what would be nice is the ability to create custom roles in Azure AD (as well as B2C) with option to select which attributes have read and edit rights to.

    This would then allow us to provide RBAC which meet business requirements rather than having to provide too much access.

    Thanks.

  12. Have App Launcher open apps in New Tab as default, or as an option, for all of my users.

    Is there a way to make the default action for the App Launcher (waffle) open the app (mail, contacts, yammer or whatever) in a new tab?

    That's one of the biggest complaints I hear from my users, that when they click to go somewhere else they lose their spot.

    Yes, I know you can right-click and select to open in new tab. Try and keep telling 500+ people that....

  13. Improve Stream Performance - picture blurry first 6-18 seconds of video

    When we post videos to Stream, when clicked to play from Stream or if they are embedded in SharePoint, the first 6-18 seconds of the video is blurry and then the picture sharpens. Microsoft Support says that this is a known issue and the Stream team is aware of it. Please fix!
    Notes on the issue: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Microsoft-Stream-Forum/Video-Playback-Blurry-first-half-of-video/td-p/79251

  14. Enable external users to use Approvals in Flow

    As explained by Microsoft Office365 Support, the template Approvals in Flow does not allow external users to interact with the full process. An external user can access a SharePoint site (e.g. to browse an item list) but he/she cannot press the button Approve/Reject in the email created by the Approval process in Flow. This restriction "by design" is negative for companies like ours where we handle approvals of documents by colleagues who work for different subsidiaries (=every subsidiary a different Office365 tenant) and therefore it is impossible to manage flow inside such organization.

  15. Release a solution for synchronizing the SharePoint Online Team Site's document library with NAS devices

    I would like to see a release of the ability to synch the sharepoint document library of a team site with a NAS device such as a Synology NAS. Currently Synology has an application called "Cloud Sync" but this only works for OneDrive and not SharePoint. Being able to synch the document library with a NAS will provide seemless collaboration for both users on-premis as well as those working remotely, accross several branches worldwide.

  16. Make .dotx, .xltx, .potx templates work on Sharepoint

    When you open a template (.dotx, .xltx, .potx) stored in Sharepoint library, it doesn't open a new document based on the the template like it does on a file share, but opens the template itself.
    Please make it work like on file share, and open new document.

  17. Microsoft Forms - Limit number of choices in multiple choice question

    In Microsoft Forms currently it is possible to have multiple choice questions where only one choice or many choices is permitted. I would like to see an option where we can have specified number of choices allowed, say 2, 3 or 4.

  18. Microsoft Teams Channel Conversation order. Sort Latest on Top? LIFO

    Nice product but does it not make sense to see the latest message on top? We have a channel that will be used for over a year and have 1000s of messages. We have to sort to bottom to find out the latest status? Same issue with Onenote files. No LIFO Sort option?

  19. OneDrive for Business restore full recycle bin functionality

    At the moment one could restore only up to 200 items at once and it is real pain to restore ODfB fully if user has deleted all files and folders for example. And there is no PowerShell cmdlet to restore OneDrive files too, at the moment one can use PowerShell only to restore SharePoint Online sites from recycler.

  20. Admin to use O365 PowerShell with Two Factor

    Hi Team,

    Please can you add an option to the O365 PowerShell so that Admin users with two factor can use this tool. We MUST maintain security of our environment with Two Factor, however we do need to be able to use the Powershell tool at times. Therefore could you somehow let us use the PowerShell tool with an App Key.
