  1. 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…

    OneDrive for Business on Linux
    No OneDrive for Business on Linux aka Dropbox exists. This is a showstopper for many.

  3. Sign out screen of O365

    Dear Team
    when you sign out from https://login.microsoftonline.com/ we are redirected to the sign out screen I suggest to have an option or bottom to allow to sign in again, it would be easier

  4. 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.

  5. Azure AD Groups with more than 50,000 Users

    Hello O365 Team

    Is it possible to increase the Azure AD group membership limits to more than 50,000 Users. We have scenarios were we would like to have groups with well over 100,000. For example could the limit be increased to support 500,000 to 1,000,000.

    We opened a case with MS Support and they mentioned the following:

    Unfortunately there is no way we can currently add more than 50k users to a group and as informed Nesting is the only available workaround. We at Microsoft are not aware of any Powershell scripts available to increase the limit as we do…

  8. Flow: Create a "Wait Until Field Change in Current Item"

    Please build a "wait until field change in current item" action into Microsoft Flow. This exists in SharePoint Designer and is extremely necessary for building workflows. The Do Until function does not work well, is not clear or user-friendly at all, and does not have the exact same functionality. Microsoft Flow is supposed to be more user-friendly than SharePoint Designer, but until I get this functionality I will not be able to use it, and my "SuperUsers" will never understand the Do Until action.

  10. Allow tenant to change region

    Businesses move head quarters and allowing them change region can be very helpful. Currently there is no way to migrate to a new region other than to create a new tenant. While achievable with Exchange Online, with SharePoint Online this is very difficult.

    As the recent Japan and Australian migrations show, this is clearly achievable.

    The other options is to decrease latency between regions, but this is more of a internet backbone infrastructure issue.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  15. Add Agenda/To Do List to OWA Calendar Views

    Add a "new" view to the Calendar. Similar to the Outlook To Do Bar (Checked Calendar option), provide a Calendar View that shows the next Calendar events, regardless of Day of the week, until the limit is reached. Make the limit the same as the Outlook 2016 To Do Bar, since that seems to work nicely.

  17. Allow for British DD/MM/YYYY format when using OneDrive/Excel Online

    When creating documents on Excel offline, as a British user the standard date format is always set to DD/MM/YYYY. When this is then uploaded to OneDrive and people work on the document online it automatically displays the date as the american MM/DD/YYYY, which causes all sorts of issues, especially with formulas and especially if people are entering dates once the document is online.

  18. enable filters for Sharepoint Recycle bin

    Enable filters for the Recycle Bin view which allow selection of date range and user. This would greatly help in recovery of large amounts of inadvertently deleted data which a particular user has done (such as by "cleaning up" local folders which were actually synced.

  19. 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!
