    • Basic Shared Calendar - No mailbox or Contacts folder

      Ability to create Shared Calendars (companywide) that require no end-user configuration (Outlook 2016, OWA, and mobile) AND only includes that, a Shared Calendar.

      I can think of 4 different methods to create a companywide Shared Calendar: Shared Mailboxes, SharePoint, Exchange Public Folders, and Office 365 Groups. However, these methods have huge drawbacks which I will explain below based on Shared Calendars.

      Shared Mailbox
      Pros:
      - Automatically added to Outlook 2016
      - Shows up under Calendar tab as a separate calendar without user intervention.
      Cons:
      - Adds an extra mailbox and cannot be disabled.
      - Adds an extra contacts folder and…

      • Increase message per minute limit

        The 30 message per minute limit causes problems for software that needs to send out to many users. Now that we've migrated to Exchange Online our payroll system can no longer send out payslips because of this feature. Very limiting and a very low limit. It should at least be able to be configured to allow accounts to be exempted or have different limits.

        • Add the ability to disable "Request to reset user's password" email notifications.

          Please allow companies to disable the "Request to reset user's password" notification's if password resets are disabled in Office 365. We have internal processes in place for employee password resets and our Office 365 administrators are not typically involved.

          The best solution would be a custom message that companies could display to employees who attempt to reset their passwords in O365 - this way the employee would be notified about the correct reset process.

          • More ‘Smooth’ Effects

            Video creation using powerpoint is quite good, but still is not as good as after effect of other video editor. Very unfortunate because it’s only less than a fraction of a second. We’ll be very happy if the smooth timing can be improved so we can create HQ video just rely on powerpoint.

            • enable outlook 2016 to look like outlook 2010

              Loads of us love the look and feel of Outlook 2007/2010.. Make a theme for outlook 2016 that looks the same! We want a desktop application look not a look that makes us think we are on a phone/tablet.

              • PowerShell MFA for CSP Delegated Admin Privileges

                Currently the PowerShell module that supports MFA does not support CSP Delegated Admin Privileges. Considering the scope and power of a DAP account this is a pretty wicked security hole.

                  • Adding Powerpoint Video Timeline

                    We All know that right now powerpoint has widely use for video making, but there is a difficulty to sync voice with video or to add effect on exact time. My suggestion is, this surely easier if Microsoft add ‘timeline’ feature just like majority of video editor so it would be easier for us to configure audio and video effect for better result

                    • User Profile Mobile Phone Number

                      I'm surprised this is still a thing, but if you populate the mobile phone attribute for users in AD, you apparently can (though not in my experience) get said attribute to sync to your Azure AD profile. However, it DOES NOT sync to your SharePoint online/Delve profiles.

                      This is a fairly annoying thing that's been on people's radar for about 3 years, apparently. I found a powershell script that is supposed to get around the issue, but so far I haven't gotten it to work.

                      Having that attribute be one of the ones that syncs from Azure AD profiles would…

                      • 'Shared With’ column does not reflect current state of sharing status

                        Within an Office 365 Group document library (SPO site), the ‘Shared With’ column does not reflect current state of sharing status.

                        Here are some examples:
                        1. When you remove a user’s permission from an item in a Group the ‘Shared With’ column still shows that it is shared with that user.
                        2. When you copy a file in a Group the ‘Shared With’ column retains the original users listed even though it is no longer shared with them.

                        Acknowledge this is by design:
                        https://support.microsoft.com/en-sg/help/2987770/the-shared-with-column-displays-users-who-no-longer-have-access-to-a-document-in-sharepoint-online

                              Right now when an custom tile is created any user has to add it to his app launcher individually.

                              In case of big companies it is not feasible to roll out new tiles apps that way. These new tiles should be deployed by the administrator to a specific population or all users.

                                  • Updates to Office 365 Group calendar events are disregarding ‘send an invitation to the group’ check box

                                    In an Office 365 Group calendar you can create a new meeting invite and uncheck the ‘send an invitation to the group’ check box. As expected, this will stop anyone in the group receiving the invite notification.

                                    However, if you need to make any updates to that event (it doesn’t matter what update you make) and click save, a notification will be sent to all members in the group. In addition to this, the Group will also add the calendar event to the personal calendar of the individual who has made the update.

                                    This is not an intuitive user experience.

                                    • We need a "Is this feature deployed to my tenant yet?" tool

                                      People in the world, both admins and users, are constantly asking whether new features Microsoft has announced as on the way or rolling out are deployed to their tenant yet. This often results in a lot of confusion and probably support cases and questions into Microsoft asking these types of questions.

                                      We could solve this by building some sort of "Is this feature deployed to my tenant yet?" tool. This tool would very simply authenticate the person checking via Azure Active Directory, and then return a simple result for the feature you are checking on. Results could be:

                                      - Yes …

                                      • DMARC Aggregate Reports from O365 Domains

                                        Ability for Office 365 to send DMARC Aggregate reports when set in a monitoring policy to see which aouthorised\unauthorised senders are using my domain suffix... just like other vendors are already doing.

                                        • Disable email notification about missed chat (Mac Skype for business)

                                          Would it be possible to have same feature for Mac's Skype for business to disable missed conversation. In Windows Skype for business you can do that from Personal settings -> Save IM conversation in my email Conversation History folder.
