  1. Fix Heading Style management

    Improve the management of Heading Styles, particularly numbering. The present system is little improved in many years and is a complex mess of potential conflicts. There are many community help pages dedicated to fixing the mess that is section numbering for complex or long documents.

  2. PSTN Conferencing for Skype for Business and limits to the number of toll-free numbers

    When adding PSTN conferencing to Skype for Business, there are limits to the number of toll-free numbers, which is dictated by quantify of licenses purchases. 5 toll-free numbers for 1-25 licenses is extremely limiting and a hindrance to small businesses working globally. Please increase the number of toll-free numbers possible, even if it had to be purchased. This is preventing us from switching to Microsoft's service.

  3. Ability to confirm the meeting room availability via a meeting attendee’s calendar item in Outlook Client

    I would like to know if the meeting room is reserved properly by viewing items on an attendee’s calendar in Outlook Client.
    Currently, when sending a meeting invite, an item will be created for a meeting organizer, attendees and a reserved meeting room. Attendees will not know if the meeting room could not be reserved for some reason nor whether the item has been created or not until they actually go to the meeting room calendar.

    This feedback is based on a customer voice from support SR.

  4. Enable the use of the same first name applied to different domains owned by 1 user in a single tenancy

    Currently the use of the same first name@domain does not allow a user to have multiple domains in the same tenancy with the same first name but at each different domain i.e dean@domainABC.com dean@domainXYZ.com when you won different domains you should be able to have the same first name be it info or accounts or tom, this would be a great enhance to Office365

  5. Windows loaded on new computers -devices

    Please ask your hardware vendors like ASUS, ACER, HP and others to stop loading ridiculous self serving apps into the windows operating system for new devices. I just spent 4 days loading Office 365 , 3 times and eventually re-installing windows, plus all my apps again. This happened on an ASUS laptop. It also happened in the past with an ACER and HP. These apps corrupt the operating system and prevent buyers from being productive day 1.

  6. Focused Inbox Attribute that can be addressed using rules.

    When clutter was introduced users hated it but after a some time to bed in and the sorting improving it got better and now many users like the feature.

    So Microsoft have decided that Clutter is no more and we now all have 2 inboxes instead.

    This is all great with the exception that many users do mot use Outlook email clients all the time, some have iPad, iPhones, Android devices etc. which have no idea what Focused is.

    Clutter worked on these devices as it was a folder but I am guessing Focused inbox is an attribute on a…

  10. When un-licensed admin user creates an Office 365 group

    The Office 365 group option is not shown and it’s unable for un-licensed admin users to create an Office 365 group in the O365 admin center. They can create O365 groups by using Exchange Admin center, however a group owner should be set as a member in that case. It would be great if global admin who has not been assigned licenses could also create an Office 365 group in OAC.

  11. Common Outlook Errors

    Nothing is considered to be more irritating than unable to send email messages when you desperately need it.
    There are many reasons why Outlook wouldn’t send/receive an email.
    In that case choosing a best tool is most difficult task.
    Here I share with you the list of best tools according to my own experience:

  14. Allow external Skype connections by default, allowing organisations to opt out if required. Currently just too complicated to use.

    To communicate with external Skype addresses users face changing both their own and the remote configuration, this is too high a barrier for use, I'm struggling to keep Skype as the VC of choice.

  16. Allow option to consolidate archive into primary mailbox when moving mailboxes from on-prem to Exchange Online

    During mailbox migrations to Office 365, an option to consolidate ( and remove ) the online archive would be highly beneficial. It would eliminate the need to move items post migration and the end-user can leverage all the messages rather than using the clunky archive.

  17. AzureAD PowerShell module should follow PowerShell best practices

    Cmdlets should use [switch] for boolean parameters where appropriate. You should only have to type Get-AzureADUser -All without $true.
    (https://office365.uservoice.com/forums/264636-general/suggestions/33843148-provide-consistent-powershell-switches-between-mod)

    Cmdlets should decide on sensible defaults for pipeline input ByValue. Now cmdlets accepts all parameter values both ByValue and ByPropertyName. You can not easily pipe from one cmdlet to another like this: Get-AzureADGroup -SearchString 'mygroup' | Add-AzureADGroupMember -RefObjectId [guid]

    Parameter consistency: Add-AzureADGroupMember -RefObjectId, but Remove-AzureADGroupMember -MemberId for example.

    Nullable bool should not show anything if value is null. If you create a new Office 365 group and then run Get-AzureADGroup | Format-List, the property DirSyncEnabled shows as "False"…
