  1. Make external data import use multiple cores again.

    Visio pro 2010, 2013 uses multiple cores 2016 / 365 only use 1 core if you do an external data import from excel. to give you an idea. I have 1 large visio flow and I import the data from excel, the 2010 and 2013 versions of visio need 5 a 6 minutes to complete. Visio 2016 / 365 is after 1 hour on 10%

    I tested this behaviour on several pc's from windows 7 up to 10, office 2010 up to office 365, 32 and 64 bit. and. My last try to see if this problem was gone was…

  2. 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?

  4. Place signature/disclaimer under user's last typed line instead of bottom of email and prevent signature stacking

    When using transport rules for email signature or legal disclaimer, the rule places the information at the bottom of the email instead of under the sender's last typed line. The result is a stack of signatures and legal disclaimers. The recipient does not know who wrote the email or whom the legal disclaimer belongs to.

  5. Message Tracing API

    • Retain tracking data for longer than 90 days
    • Place tracking data in a system they control for faster access to it – historic searches can take hours to run which isn’t acceptable to most customers I’m dealing with
    • Perform more frequent historic searches – for large customers there may be days in where 15 searches isn’t enough. It isn’t frequent
    • Enable tracking insights using SIEMs (which are able to run simultaneous queries for security purposes against multiple data sources for the purpose of collation/making sense of a security incident)

    So essentially the current mechanism falls short…

  6. Teams-Disable Voicemail to Email

    When a new voicemail comes into Ms teams calling provide the option to disable the voicemail to email and only allow VM to stay in the MS Teams voicemail tab. Companies want the ability to manage searchable data in their exchange system. Voicemail should not be fully tied to email and should have a separate policy

  7. 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

  8. Office 365 licensing and technical mode for User in suspend / park / archive position without using this User

    Situation:
    In an Office 365 tenant are some users, who are ill, in parental leave, in maternity leave, sabbatical or in another period of a break.
    In these situations we have to delete and migrate the Users. The delete option has only 30 days. So for a longer time and you don`t want to pay the full charge for a unused account, you have to delete the account and migrate the data from Exchange Online, SharePoint Online, OneDrive f Business, Teams, Groups and all of these modern tools and services.
    The issue is you can´t migrate the User with all…

  9. Skype for Business Conversation History and Missed Conversations should both be an option.

    You can turn off Conversation History for a Skype for Business service in a tenant, but you cannot turn off Missed Conversations. So a conversation that is missed won't show up in history, but a Missed Conversation will still be displayed. Can we also turn off Missed Conversations like with can with Conversation History?

  11. MS Project for Mac users

    Hello,
    Can you tell me about a logical reason in 2016 we still do not have MS Project on Macbook?
    I am a project manager. This is everyday work. Without MS Project, Macbook is a toy!

  12. Need to support Task Lists for modern pages

    When creating a task list in SharePoint, the modern list view doesn't appear to support the timeline feature, unless you are in editing mode. Furthermore, if I wanted to show tasks on a modern page, I cannot leverage the out of the box functionality to add that app to a page (think department or project sites). With the classic mode of tasks lists outweighing modern features for tasks lists, can this be added to the roadmap?

  13. Removing Sudan from the list of restricted countries for Office 365

    Dear Sirs,

    I wanted to configure office 365 Education for my University - Sudan University of Science and Technology - which resides in Sudan, but I did not find my country - Sudan - listed in the drop-down list "Where's your company located?" on the link below:

    When I tried to find a solution for the above-mentioned issue through Microsoft Community Support Forums, I have been informed that Sudan is listed as one of the restricted country for Office 365 license subscription and may not be able to use the product. You can check the bellow link regarding the…

  15. Microsoft Bookings, Allow Hybrid Exchange to be admin/viewer

    In a hybrid Exchange environment, Microsoft Bookings doesn't allow on-prem mailboxes to be admin/viewer, it needs to have an Exchange online mailbox to be admin.

    We need it to allow on-prem users to be admin/viewer and not limited to just be Exchange online mailboxes.

    Note: We are on the same domain.

  20. allow typing text in Snip & Sketch

    After a screen capture, many are in the need of adding notes to the highlighted area from the snippet. It would be great if we can type text in it.
