  1. Add Yammer Enterprise to the O365 Enterprise E3 Developer Licence

    When working with clients who do not want to give developers access to a production Yammer tenant we need to be able to test yammer integration with a Yammer enterprise tenant. I believe that it should be part of the O365 Enterprise E3 Developer Licence.

  2. Moving Office windows lag when using a gaming mouse with high polling rate like 1000

    Gaming mice have a high polling rate like 1000. Office 2016 synchronises the mouse events like move, and scroll to the display refresh rate. Having 1000 events per second when the display can only do 60 causes the input buffers to overflow an as a result moving or scrolling within office applications lags and causes them to become unresponsive. Affected programs: Word, Excel, Powerpoint, etc.

  3. Change the ribbon icons back to how they were!

    The new ribbon icons are terrible!

    They are very low contrast and I'm having trouble working out which is which!

    There's very little colour and it's really hard to differentiate between similar icons. I have 'set print area' and 'preview and print' next to each other and there's no difference aside from a thin blue line on set print area.

    Please provide the option to change back to the previous icons or the ability to select from high contrast or low contrast.

  4. Sharepoint Document Retention Based on "Last Viewed" instead of "Last Modified" Date

    We'd like to be able to set Sharepoint Online document retention policies based on date a document was last viewed, as opposed to date last modified.

  6. Unable to remove default domain email address added to shared mailbox / user mailbox as alias / Unable to delete email alias

    Hi
    some of the reasons microsoft doesn't allows us to remove the alias email address with the default domain.

    i created a shared mailbox called finance@secondarydomain.com. when i created that it automatically created an email alias as finance@primarydomain.com by default. Now i tried to create an additional shared mailbox finance@primarydomain.com but cannot do so as the address is used by finance@secondarydomain.com.

    When i try to delete the alias from the first mailbox the settings seems to be saved without any error message, but when i reopen the dialog box the alias address still there. when i try to…

  7. Transport Rule to block emails having undisclosed recipients

    Currently, there is no method to block incoming emails that have 1) undisclosed recipients, 2) or have empty subject, 3) or when To or CC fields do not contain any target/recipient corporate address, 4) or a predicate that catches an email for a BCC field (probably because BCC isn't visible in an email header) via Transport Rule predicates or Spam Filter protection. Can we have a such a critical functionality in Exchange Online so we don't look for third party spam solutions?

  8. printing directly from SharePoint online / Please add a print button to the ribbon

    We cannot PRINT pictures directly from SharePoint Online.
    The only option is to download and save the file and then open and print it. This takes to much effort to print a picture.

    We would like to print directly from SharePoint.

    Please add a print button to the ribbon containing sharing/download/remove/copy.?

  9. Additional archive storage space search issue (auto-expanding archive):

    We recently learnt that data moved to additional archive storage can only be searched by going to the folder itself. We want to know if it is the intended long-term solution for users. We feel that having to search in multiple locations would be difficult for users.
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/office365/securitycompliance/unlimited-archiving

    You can search for items that were moved to an additional storage area only by searching the folder itself. This means you have to select the archive folder in the folder list to select the Current Folder option as the search scope. Similarly, if a folder in an auto-expanded storage area…

  10. proofing toolkit for O365 2016 (click to run)

    Make proofing tools available from click to run ODT so we can deploy all or selected proofing kits as part of Office 2016.

    MSI version has installer
    Mac OSx have this already included in installation

    We need this for click to run on Windows to support our users as international company.
    Install full language packs is not practical as users need to spellcheck for multiple languages in some cases and we do not want everyone on there native language UI.

  12. Allow collaborators on Microsoft Forms

    I love the functionality of Microsoft Forms. However, I work on a team and we would like to be able to share the Responses so that we all have the ability to view the automatically created charts. We also would like to share control on the questions being asked. Team work is important and I would love to see Microsoft Forms better support this.

  13. Office 1904 - files on redirected folders wont open when offline

    We use redirected folders for users desktops, these are redirected to a server 2012 R2 share. When users are not on the network offline files allows them to open the files on their redirected desktop.

    We are using windows 10 1803 and 1809.

    If a user has Microsoft office 1904 or later installed when they try to open a file from the desktop when offline they get the message "Sorry, we cant open \Filename because the server isnt responding" This happens for all office files.

    The files are there and can be opened with other programs, e.g a csv file…

  14. Custom Office 365 Notifications

    Add the ability for a developer to push custom notifications to one or more Office 365 users within an org which are then shown via the suite bar bell icon. This functionality would be similar to a meeting reminder notice or receiving an email.

    The use case for this functionality is notifying all or a select group of users within an org of bad weather, non-Office 365 system outages, or other types of emergencies. Ideally, would like the ability to use this functionality from within a Flow to trigger these notifications upon adding an item to a SharePoint list.

  15. Add Working Elsewhere into Show As box in Outlook for Mac for all versions

    I would like you to add Working Elsewhere into Show As box in Outlook for Mac in all versions.
    Currently, when a user is scheduling an appointment, Show As options are different depending on each version of Outlook for Mac and the Working Elsewhere status is not available in all versions.

    This feedback is based on a customer voice from support SR.

  16. Publish Links to Office Client Applications for Office 2013/2016

    Publish Links to Office Client Applications for Office 2013/2016.

    It would be a huge usability improvement, if published links at 'Sharepoint Online Admin / User Profiles / My Sites / Publish Links to Office Client Applications' would work with Office 2013/2016. Looks like it's currently working only with Office2010.

  18. enable ipv6 on all mx-records by default, today customerdomain.mail.protection.outlook.com is missing AAAA-record.

    Office 365 can only receive emails over IPv4, since there is no AAAA-record in customerdomain.mail.protection.outlook.com. Please enable this, we need to be ipv6 compliant.

    *** No IPv6 address (AAAA) records available for customerdomain.mail.protection.outlook.com

  20. Disable POP and IMAP by Default

    I'd like to be able to set that the default for IMAP and POP is disabled. From there we can turn on these features per mailbox as required.
