  1. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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…

  5. Allow .msg files to be previewed in Windows Explorer when 64-bit Outlook is installed

    Currently when someone has 64-bit Outlook installed and they save .msg files into the file system, if they use the preview windows, they get a pop up box "Either there is no default mail client or the current mail client cannot fulfill the messaging request. Please run Microsoft Outlook and set it as the default mail client".

    This is because Explorer cannot preview emails from 64-bit Outlook, only 32-bit. Of course the common answer is to remove 64-bit and install 32-bit, but that is no longer an acceptable answer IMO and I have no intention of doing that. Please fix…

  6. Disable read receipt in Outlook Mobile

    Outlook Mobile automatically sends read receipts, even if you really don't want it sends. I read it's an Active Sync issue, but there is some email mobile client around that disables read receipts.
    Automatic sending of read receipts is absolutely unsuited for business use, Please correct that.

  7. 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.

  8. Hide contacts with faxnumber in outlook address book

    If you open Outlook address book and search for contacts, you find names with valid email address and such one with a fax number.

    I suggest to implement a Feature, that names ( lines) with fax numbers can be hidden in the address list for Outlook, which Primary want to send emails and don't want to send fax. Especially in Office 365, where no fax is connected.

  9. Enable static conference ID's per user in Skype for Business Conferencing

    There are many situations when our mobile workforce are not at their computer and want to quickly jump on a conference call without a scheduled meeting. There are other situations where it is useful to have the same conference ID from week to week for example for weekly recurring meetings.

    Other conference services allow users to be assigned a static conference ID for these purposes. This may be a show stopper feature for us as it is extremely inconvenient to have to set up a conference call with a dynamic ID for every way we use conference calling.

  12. Move 'reply' 'reply all' and 'forward' buttons to the LEFT side in Outlook

    Please move the 'Reply', 'Reply All', and 'Forward' buttons in Outlook to back to the LEFT side of Outlook instead of the right side. This is not intuitive to users and makes for extra scrolling, adding up over time and negatively impacting productivity. This appears to be part of a recent update on June 3, 2019. All Outlook users would greatly appreciate the change back to the way it was before!

    User wants to use the RSS feed function to get URL in the new UI, but there’s no such function. Please add RSS feed function to the new UI. That would be really helpful to users.

  15. Delete Attachments from Outlook Web

    Users cannot delete attachments from Outlook Web emails.
    (Outlook.Office365.com).

    Users want the ability to keep the email, but remove the attachments after viewing so that their mailbox is kept lean.

    Some users only access Outlook web and this feature is not available, as it is only available in the client.

  16. 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?

  18. Add "Tag for Status Change Alerts" feature to Teams

    I find the "Tag for Status Change Alerts" feature in Skype for Business to be very useful. I mainly use this to get an alert when someone becomes available so I can pounce on them quickly! Can this be added to Teams?

  19. 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…
