  1. SharePoint Online - Document Opening Behavior

    At first in our organization documents used to open in Read Only mode but now they are opening in Edit Mode, I want to revert these changes as they should open in Read Only mode or add a feature in Document Library where users can select the default behavior for the documents.

  2. Publisher: Allow comments and track changes

    Publisher should support comments and track changes like Word. This would be especially helpful when a Publisher documents needs to be reviewed. I currently have to create a PDF of the document and then use the comment feature in Acrobat to allow my management to review and comment electronically.

  4. 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.?

  6. Billing frequency changes (annual/month-to-month)

    I originally set up my Office 365 E3 subscription on a month-to-month basis. As an independent contractor, my revenue varies each month so some months are fatter, some months are leaner.

    This is a fat month and I want to change my billing from month-to-month to annual. The billing FAQ informs me that I can do this, but need to call customer support. So I call customer support. Their solution? Add a 2nd E3 subscription, BACK UP ALL MY DATA (because the switch might cause it to be deleted), and cancel the original month-to-month E3 (with the early termination fee…

  7. Add option to completely disable Intelligent Service in Office

    The recent update introduced pop-up suggesting to use Intelligent Services. But it only has Turn On and Not now buttons. Pressing Not now just hides it for some time and it will pop again (as it is said in the document related to this feature). Add an option to completely disable it. Would be great to have a kill switch for this tenant wide.

  8. Remove date grouping in Office 365 webmail

    Remove date grouping for the inbox in Office 365 webmail. Previous webmail versions could do this, as well as the client version.

    I'm talking about the headers in the inbox, like "Today", "Yesterday", "Last week", etc.

  9. 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…

  11. Allow the insertion of an Excel spreadsheet into OneNote 2016 from the Insert tab/ribbon as the Windows version allows. Teachers need this!

    Users (especially teachers) need the option to insert an Excel spreadsheet into OneNote 2016 for MAC OS X. Math, science, and technology teachers who have students collaborating in OneNote Class Notebook especially need this feature for use with students.

  12. 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?

  13. Allow Autosave on Rights Management Documents and AIP

    Autosave becomes disabled when you use Righs Management or Azure Information protection. Sensitive business documents cannot be coauthored as a result.

  15. SharePoint Online Single Sign On

    If single sign on is setup to allow domain credentials to access officer 365 resources, the user should not see a login prompt even just to enter the username. As traditional intranet solutions allow users to logon seamless to the intranet in a true single sign on experience. Federated Acceleration does help as a workaround but blocking external sharing does not give us the full power of SharePoint online.

  17. 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…

  18. 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?

    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…
