  1. it would be great is you were able add shared office 365 to shareppoint online site.

    We have several shared Office365 shared calendars, it would be amazing if we could put these calendars up on our sites other than a link to it. As it is now we can only put a link to the shared calendar.

    thanks Jeff

  4. When entering new alternate email, old alternate email does not get removed from password reset verification page

    When I choose to reset my password, I am given the option to use 2 emails for verification. One of them I entered in the alternate email box via the personal info tab in "view account" . The other is the old email that I used previously, but I am unable to remove that email from the list of options.

    Only after a support engineer directed me to myapps.microsoft.com> Click on profile picture > drop down to profile > setup self service password reset was I able to remove the old email. I had to enter my new recovery email,…

  5. Formatting marks preferably in pale grey rather than black (or text colour)

    Previously, non-printing characters (formatting marks) were in an unobtrusive, but visible, pale grey colour (except for returns and paragraph marks in blue).

    I have just downloaded an update to MS word (Mac), and the formatting marks are now in black (or text colour). This makes reading the document a whole lot more difficult.

    A reversal of this change would be very useful and much appreciated.

  6. RESTORE the CREATE BOOKLET feature when on the Print window.

    Prior to 365, I could easily transform a Word document into booklet format while on the Print window. All I do is simply select Create Booklet on the PDF button (bottom left hand corner of the window) and the document opens up anew under Preview and is automatically formatted in booklet format. I just then Save the preview as a PDF. But now, while you could hear the motion of opening the document anew into Preview - it no longer appears on the screen. Somehow 365 took this very convenient aspect of Word out of the equation. Please restore this…

  7. Profile pages from SharePoint list different URLs for their blogs

    If a user clicks on a blog from a profile page in SharePoint the URL is in the form of https://tenant.sharepoint.com/portals/hub/personal/user/blogname

    If a user clicks on a blog from Delve, the URL is in the form of
    https://tenant.sharepoint.com/portals/personal/user/_layouts/15/PointPublishing.aspx?storyid=x

    This causes problems for Yammer comments as the URLs don't match, even though the content is the same.

  9. Questions about responding to email from Amazon customers to blacklist

    We often email our Amazon customers because of our business needs, and for customer addresses, we use passwords, such as (kylpjb6mwb4m36r@marketplace.amazon.it), for irregular email names, and every link the customer sends in, They all contain the following three hyperlinks, and we don't send them out of the box, but our email accounts are often thrown into the protection center, thinking that we send spam to stop it, and it takes 24H to reuse it after unblocking it. Seriously affects our normal, has consulted you customer service and backstage support for this question, suggested that when we reply the…

  10. Separate from filter into two filters. One for basic from field checking and another for distribution groups.

    Currently "from" filter will apply to all members of a distribution group if an email address used in a filter happens to be attached to a distribution group. That is not intuitive and leads to important email getting incorrectly filtered out.

    There should be two completely separate filters:
    1. A basic from field filter that simply checks if a string value in the from field matches the one specified in the filter.
    2. A distribution group filter that applies to every member of the group when matched.

  12. PROGRAMMING ISSUES THAT NEED RESOLVING

    There are 2 things that I find extremely irritating when working with MS. First: The fact that a minimised document opens when you open another, i.e. word doc minimised will open first when you open another word doc. This happens across the board with Word, Excel, Publisher, etc. GHRRRRHG!!!!

    Second: Word documents have a presetting that includes larger than usual spacings between the lines. This means you have to sort the spacing out for each document, removing the 'add space below' and making sure the '1.0' spacing is selected or your letter is all spaced out. When have you ever…

  13. merge Word, Excel, Powerpoint, etc. into one application called Office, for example

    Previously I create report document using Word, using data from Excel. Which was from CSV file, which was from SQL. It's just absurd. The table in Word just doesn't work like spreadsheet, it's frustating. Now I've been creating report documents using Excel. The new version can now print nicely, unlike before. So it's nice. But then I have to present it, and I don't have time to convert it PowerPoint. Too much work.

  14. Sort users at risk on Azure by date.

    When we check the users, the dates are mixed, it's confusing to know if an event is recent or old.

  18. More options for screen timeout with Intune/SCCM

    The only options for screen timeout in Intune/SCCM is 1 min and then 5 min. I think 5min is too long but 1 min users are complaining about. Allow admin to choose times or make 2 min available.

  20. I HATE that you often can't get out of a news item or out of search using escape, close screen etc, but must go to task manger to close it.

    I HATE that you often can't get out of a news item or out of search, by using logical means such as "escape" button, right click of mouse, or close screen. Instead you are forced to go to task manager and close the application, so that you can regain use of the computer.
