  1. 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…

  3. 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.

  4. Enable "Shared Templates" in Office Online

    In our existing Word and PowerPoint apps, we were able to post shared, branded templates for use across the organization. This is no longer available when using Office Online. Please enable more choice so that users, when creating a new document, can select from blank or from designated, designed templates.

  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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  9. 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…

  10. 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.

  11. add/Embed YouTube videos to Microsoft Streams

    We as an organisation think Microsoft Streams could be used as a training ground for our staff on office 365 applications, we would like to have the ability to add YouTube videos that we approve as good training material. There is some great training material on YouTube to be able to highlight the good ones in Microsoft Steams would be fantastic.

  12. add an option to disable email notifications when sharing a calendar

    It would be very helpfull to turn off calendar invites. In a company, where each calender is shared with all other employees - sharing a calendar for a new employee, will result in many hundred mails the the entire organisazion, when shaing/editing the permissions for the calender for all users.

  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:

    https://signup.microsoft.com/Signup?OfferId=03ee83a5-5cb4-4545-aca9-33ead43f222a,d764709a-7763-45ef-a2a8-db5b8b6ae704&DL=ENTERPRISEPREMIUM_FACULTY&ali=1

    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…

  14. "Shared with Me" Organization in OneDrive

    Please allow users to add folders to and organize their "Shared with Me" section of OneDrive.

    It would also be nice to allow users to move items from "Shared with Me" into "Files" so they can be organized with the files they have created. I can appreciate the syncing issues this would create, but it would save a lot of unnecessary searching through unorganized documents.

  16. Custom Office 365 Notifications

    Add the ability for a developer to push custom notifications to one or more Office 365 users within an org which are then shown via the suite bar bell icon. This functionality would be similar to a meeting reminder notice or receiving an email.

    The use case for this functionality is notifying all or a select group of users within an org of bad weather, non-Office 365 system outages, or other types of emergencies. Ideally, would like the ability to use this functionality from within a Flow to trigger these notifications upon adding an item to a SharePoint list.

  18. Please improve meeting room equipments information, inside outlook calendar. ManyThanks

    Please improve meeting room equipments information, inside outlook calendar.
    In addition, to the meeting room name and the address mail of the meeting room, it is important to add the following fields:
    - video-projector
    - number of network point connection
    - Phone conference present or not and its number
    - black/white board
    - ...
    You can add all this information as differents fields or as a one big field "Equipments", as you prefer.
    All this information have to be visible when you are booking the room.
    Many thanks in advance for this upgrade!

  20. Ability to change the proofing language for all users

    The proofing language for Word Online etc. is set to English US by default, and whilst you can change this on a single document, it automatically defaults back to English US for every new document created.

    I've spoken to Microsoft, who confirmed this is by design, and cannot currently be changed at a global/admin level.
