  1. Improvements to service request interface

    Compared to most ticketing systems IT people often use, the Admin > Support > View Service Requests feature in O365 is severely lacking. At a minimum, all of the correspondences logged from user to support rep and from support rep to user should be visible in this interface ... be those emails or direct entries into the portal page.
    Also, I'd like more granular assignments (what group in Microsoft is handling, if issue has be escalated). I'd like a "due date" indicating when the next step is expected if the issue is waiting on Microsoft ... just so the user…

    • Enable the calendar "to do" bar in mail online not just the reading pane

      In the client version of Outlook mail, I have the calendar "to do" bar showing on the right-hand side of my screen when I'm in my mailbox. This is not possible in O365 online mail - you only have the option for a reading pane.

      • One Note 2016 desktop

        The update of One Note from 2013 to 2016 is not an improvement and is almost unusable with a keyboard and mouse. It adds steps to simple tasks and lacks even some of the capabilities of the current mobile version. It also consumes way too much screen real estate with no way to shrink to the size of the previous window. Someone should actually test this on a desktop

        • Inquiry mail may not have been properly sent via modern supprort.

          I would like to inform you that I may not receive a reply despite sending inquiry mail to the Support team via modern support. In addition, this new process is hardly said user friendly, so that I really hope the system of the modern support will be improved to provide good service as soon as possible.

          Thank you for your continued support.

          • importing Contacts from Iphone to outlook.

            I would like to export contacts into a data file so i can import it into outlook app on mobile phone. It's crazy how a simple thing of adding profiles on your mobile will not update on the outlook on my PC, so annoying.

              • Maintian functionality when changing licence plans

                Microsoft advise that the current migration path for company's moving from Midsize Business licensing is to select Business Premium. However the functionality between the two products is different. Therefore company's who had previously used features find that they are no longer available unless they purchase additional products. It would be a good idea to ensure that functionality is not removed as part of any future changes to licence plans!

                    • Change or eliminate the annoying sign in page of Outlook

                      Why there is no way to change the annoying sign in page of Outlook or even bypass it without having to sign in each time? It is frustrating, and the image itself is boring and not nice at all

                            • Unable to sync shared with me folder in OneDrive client for external users

                              Dear Backend team,

                              One of our valuable customers feedbacked that it's quite unacceptable that we can't sync shared with me folders in OneDrive client.

                              Our customer shows great concern on it and we also assume it's very inconvenient and it's highly necessary to improve it.

                              Thank you for your prompt attentions on it.

                                  • Would like to continue utilizing Share Workbook button and its functionality

                                    Currently, we can use the Share Workbook button and its functionality, but we don’t see the button on Office client sometimes because the collaboration feature has been added lately.
                                    It is still possible to show the button on the Office client by changing the settings. However, we are not allowed to use OneDrive or SharePoint because of our company operation policy. We would like you to continuously keep the function on Office client from here on out.

                                    • Allow user to select permissions level when sharing calendar

                                      When you share a calendar with someone via OWA, why cant you select the permissions level from the same screen?

                                      Why does it have to be a separate action to go back and assign the correct permissions level?

                                        • Transferring UK non-geographic numbers Skype For Business

                                          Caution: At this time in the United Kingdom (U.K.), we currently don't support transferring UK non-geographic numbers including shared cost numbers for area codes 0843, 0844, 0845, 0870, 0871, 0872.

                                          Can someone please tell us when will these numbers be able to transfer over ?
