  1. Sync issues with ODB

    I understand there are unsupported characters with ODB and that there is the MicrosoftEasyFix20150.meta.diagcab tool to fix these. The tool works great, except for the fact that it requires admin credentials to run. It would be very helpful to release an exe, which accomplishes the same thing, but does not require admin credentials.

    • Add tenant-wide Policy to allow setting a default options, such as Calendar appointments "-MaxDurationInMinutes"

      The default appointment length is 14400 minutes, or 1 Day.
      When you invite someone to an appointment that is longer than this the invitation is automatically declined by the recipient on sending.

      Having a Tenant wide default policy to set this for all mailboxes, including any new mailboxes created in the future will stop an additional step to be done when setting up new users or prevent support cases being raised to resolve this post-creation.

      Most people will holiday for longer than a day, so when you have a shared calendar for holidays, you have to create an appointment for…

      • Outlook Syncing

        It's a great feature that you have Outlook 365. It is nice when you have Outlook on multiple computers on the same account that the email downloads into each of them automatically.

        It would be wonderful if you could sync your email signature to all of the computers on the same account. It's a bit clumsy to have to cut and paste all of the signature files from one computer to another.

        Thank you,

        Ed

        • Older SharePoint search (server side rendering mode) suddenly came to reject 2 character-keywords

          We received SRs from multiple customers who are feeling dissatisfied with the new behavior recently they found in the SharePoint server side rendering search experience.

          They could have searched people with using 2 character-keywords successfully, however, suddenly they got error in the search result as follows:

          "No results were found to match your search item. Please enter a new term or less specific term."

          Basing on our investigation, now the sever side rendering search became to require 3 or more character-keywords as a result of a recent update. This change gives impacts especially to the Japanese customers because a number…

            • Manually renew subscriptions

              I'm having an issue with renewing my subscription, it's not letting me. Only choice is auto renew. There should be a choice to renew manually.

              • allow to apply custom retention policies to room mailboxes

                Now, when you cancel a room reservation the cancelation goes to Deleted folder and to manintenance this mailboxes you only can clean it manually. It could be a good thing configure custom retention policys to apply to this type of mailboxes.

                  • Outlook 365 Cloud does not work the same way as Outlook On Local Campus Server

                    Outlook 365 Cloud email advanced find does not search across the cloud. Unlike Outlook on a campus server it only searches the local 90 day cache of emails. Suggest you add a check box so that it will search the Cloud as well as the local cache. This is important because i have thousands of emails and need to go back one or two years to find information.

                            • Need to Quarantine the mobile device/mobile devices if the users are members of a particular DL or group.

                              Need to Quarantine the mobile device/mobile devices if the users are members of a particular DL or group. Also the notification should be received by the Admin to allow it or block it. As many times it is not possible to give all users the Intune License due to license crunch. So it seems fair to get this kind of option in Exchange Admin Center of Office 365.

                                Be able to add a "Special Distribution Group" for external email addresses WITHOUT THE NEED TO ADD THEM to contacts first

                                This distribution group should be easy to use like the local distribution group in Outlook.

                                The owner of this special distribution group should be able to add new external members from a CSV format or pasting it from a notepad.

                                Also, the external addresses shouldn't be visible to Global Address Book

                                Thank you

                                • Prioritize Sharepoint Online search results

                                  In Sharepoint Online, when I enter a search term I should be able to prioritize the results that have the term in their file name. As it stands, if I search my libraries for "business plan", I get 50 results before I get the file that has "business plan" in it's file name. Per support, I am currently unable to prioritize the results based on the file name.

                                    • allow fields to be used in text boxes in word

                                      Using a reference manager like Zotero requires fields to be inserted, which is currently not supported in text boxes

                                        • On task flags, change "No Date" and "Custom" colors to not match "Today"

                                          In Outlook and OneNote, the flag color for items due today and on a custom date are both red, making them indistinguishable. Red should be reserved for items due today or overdue. Some other color should be used for "Custom" and "No Date" (which is red in Outlook mail but buff in OneNote). Without this change, the task feature is less usable, since I cannot tell at a glance if I need to get a task done quickly or not for a custom date in the future.
