  1. Add ability to map SharePoint drive and KEEP it alive

    Currently, there are a few things you have to do in order to even map a SharePoint drive. But in order to KEEP it alive, you have to sign into your SharePoint site, navigate to your document library, click the library ribbon at the top, and click "Open with Explorer". So, you have to do that every day or two in order to keep the token alive.

    I would like MS to do one of two things. Either add the ability to ACCESS, not SYNC only, within OneDrive for Business app or create a different way to connect to a…

  4. "The function cannot be performed because the message has been changed"

    We are beginning to see users that have problem with sending mail if that mail has been autosaved to "Drafts" folder.

    If they start to write a mail and that mail is not send within 3 minutes (The default time for autosave to kick in) then 1 out of 10 times the mail cannot be send. It just pop up with the error:
    "The function cannot be performed because the message has been changed"

  5. Office 365 new sign-in experience with ADFS 3.0 has no optoin to keep me signed in.

    With ADFS 3.0 federated sign-in, users are currently able to check the "Keep me signed in" box, prior to entering their username and being taken to the organization's ADFS sign-in page. With the new login experience, this option was moved to the password screen, which an ADFS user does not see. ADFS 3.0 itself does not have the option to stay signed in.

    Please add the stay signed in box back to the username screen on the new sign-in experience.

  7. Make notifications of changes to Calendar permissions OPTIONAL (Outlook for Windows)

    Currently, if you demote or change the permission level of another user into your calendar (Calendar / Share Calendar / Permissions) that user receives a very annoying message that suggests you don't trust him/her anymore: "XXXX has removed the sharing permissions for an Outlook calendar previously shared with you.".

    Each user should be able to enable/disable all notifications within the same "permissions" tab.

  8. Please enable Synchronous Scrolling in side by side on the MAC version of excel office 365. I need to compare many spreadsheets per day

    Side by side scrolling is not available on MAC Excel 365, but this feature is available on Windows version. Please enable synchronous scrolling in side by side mode on excel for Mac. I need to compare many spreadsheets per day and this feature is invaluable. I just moved from windows to mMac and find I need to still have a Windows machine to use this feature. Is it on the Roadmap - if so when is it expected?

  9. Allow Document Template URL within Content Type Hub

    Content Types created within the Content Type Hub allow for the addition or a Document Template via URL. However, when these are published to alternate Site Collections they will not work due to the URL being Relative to the Site Collection that they are published to. (Confirmed by MS Support Team)

    This means that updating a Document Template requires administrators to re-upload the document to the Content Type as opposed to having the changes replicated automatically that would be expected in a properly managed Document Control System.

    Please allow URL Templates to work correctly for the Content Type Hub.

  12. Azure Dynamic Groups Licensing Reprocess PowerShell cmdlet

    Please add a new PowerShell cmdlet to reprocess a group for Azure Dynamic Group based licensing. When transitioning from a direct assigned license over to azure dynamic group based licensing, there is no reprocess cmdlet on the group. Everything else can be scripted to transition the licenses over to Azure Dynamic Group based Licensing, except for reprocessing the group. We have transitioned about 10 out of 60 groups, and each time we have to login to the portal and click the reprocess button.

  14. Enable Word Online to support URLs with bookmark tags at the end.

    Workd 2010, 13 and 16 support URL's to other files that you can append a #bookmark tag so when the file opens it will auto open to that placeholder in the document.

    Word Online does not currently support this feature.

    Example: Word doc wants to reference "section2" of another document.

    URL is domain.sharepoint.com/documents/otherdocument.docx#section2

    In Word 2010 and later (except online) when you click that link it will open up the new document and auto scroll to the section2 bookmark of that document.

    Word online has not such functionality

  16. Email Signature


    1. Email Signature for company wide deployment using admin panel - signature should come at the bottom of message and not at the the end of email chain when - reply/forward.

    2. Support Formatting of signatures using a built in Text Editor (similar to individual email signature tool) in admin panel using the standard macros

    3. Should follow the same signature settings across all platforms - web, mail client, Android, iOS, etc.

  18. Microsoft Stream - Sort Videos by File Name

    Within the Stream video list, or within channels, it would be very helpful to have a option to sort by file name. I typically use file naming conventions when uploading multiple (related) videos, and being able to sort by file name would be extremely helpful for our video workflow and collaboration.

  19. Make "Keep me signed in" actually stay signed in!

    If I click the checkbox to stay signed in, it should never log me out until I manually log myself out- I mean, Facebook, Google, LinkedIn, and many other companies do this, why doesn't Microsoft? It's very frustrating to need to sign back in and type in the 2FA code several times a day at my own workstation!

  20. Fix redirection limit for mails within Office 365

    I manage two different Office 365 tenants for two different companies.
    Several years ago I created a forwarding rule that behaved in the following way:

    This worked fine until recently: sometimes rules work as expected, but most of the time mails get into email1@tenant1.com and get forwarded to email2@tenant2.com. Afterwards the email is not forwarded to user1 and user2 anymore.

    After investigation by Microsoft Support I was informed that the limitation for redirecting…
