  1. provide a version of Office 365 for Ubuntu/Linux!

    Up to know it is not possible to use Office 365 on Ubuntu but more and more students are using Ubuntu on their computers. So especially for university contracts and also in general would it be great to have the possibility to use Office 365 on Ubuntu.

    • 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…

          • 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.

            • 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.

                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.

                  • 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.

                        • 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

                          • Highlighted content web part -> Add custom columns in the view

                            the higlighted content web part within a modern page does not allow showing other columns than Title, modified and Modified by.
                            This is not handsome, e.g. if showing upcoming events (stored in a sharepoint List), the most important informations are not shown (e.g. Starttime , Location ...)

                            • '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

                                Yes, OOB SharePoint forms show up, but they are completely static and extremely limited in functionality. We really need PowerApps to be displayed in the SharePoint Mobile app.

                                      • Allow forcing custom tile in the app launcher for each user

                                        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.

                                        • Allow endusers to access quarantine for shared mailboxes

                                          Currently, only admins can view the quarantine for shared mailboxes. Users are automatically redirected to their own quarantine. I'd love for there to be a default for users who are delegates of a mailbox to have a way to get to the shared mailbox quarantine queue. If they are allowed to view the inbox/folders they should be allowed to control the spam.
