  1. Allow O365 tenant migration

    Could we please enable office 365 accounts to be migrated from one tenant to another. This is our situation here:

  2. Password manager as Office 365 app!

    I think that some passwords management like as 1password or LastPass should be included as own Microsoft app in Office 365.

    All companies thinking about giving access for their services out of Office 365 world (don't live in bubble please :D, excel is not right way for everything) to employers.

    I think that solution from Microsoft in one "eco-system" should be the best!

    Do you think about it please?

  3. Enable multi-geo support for smaller tenants

    We have a global company but only a small (around 350) licensed user base. We would dearly love to be able to leverage multi-geo functionality in order to be compliant with data sovereignty laws.

  4. Client Payment Module for Microsoft Bookings

    Add a payment module to allow clients to book and pay for meeting rooms. We have clients that hire out their meeting rooms and would like to enable this in Microsoft Bookings.

  5. Teams Secondary Ringer

    As Teams replaces Skype for Business it is critical that we have the secondary ringer functionality added to the Teams desktop app. Most of our users are using a head set for communication and can't hear the phone ring. Setting PC speaker as default isn't an option as there are numerous websites these days with auto play videos and we don't want other PC sounds constantly playing in the office.

  6. For Word create a "Basename only" field option for the FileName Field

    Desired functionality:


    • Open a blank document in MS Word.

    • Save it as "MyTempReport.docx"

    • MS Word menu > Insert [tab] > Text [group] > Quick Parts > Field ...

    • From "Field Names" choose "FileName".

    • In the Field Options area there should be an additional checkbox described as something like File basename only (without ".docx" file extension ).

    • With the option selected the resulting field will be "MyTempReport".

    Motivation: In MS Word you sometimes want to insert a FileName field in the header or footer but make it independent of the fact that the document source is a Word document. This…

  7. 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

  8. Let us use the TAB key in Word Online

    This is a pretty basic feature request: let us tab to do basic formatting in Word Online documents. Using a table isn't efficient when only one or two rows of separate, organized text are needed. This is a basic feature (it was a typewriter feature-so its been around for a while).
    The bigger request is to bring the editors in the Office Online applications up to par with their competitors. For example, Google and Apple support liberal tab use.

  11. Option to save Office files to local drive first, then sync to Sharepoint / OneDrive

    Currently, the default "Save" syncs the file to Sharepoint / OneDrive, then syncs from the cloud back to the local drive. This is a bad sequence, as, if there is a problem uploading and the file cannot be synced, the file is then completely lost. This feature can be manually overridden by going to "File," "Save As," and selecting "This PC," but must be done every time. Besides risking loss of data, by syncing to Sharepoint/OneDrive first, it locks up the file from being able to be used. If the file were simply saved locally first (which is fast), the…

  12. Enable the content enrichment web service callout

    Many customers add custom metadata to Office documents. The content enrichment web service was a perfect way to accomplish this. Please enable this functionality for cloud hybrid search.

  13. 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.

  14. Dynamic distribution group based on domain

    It seems impossible to create a DDL based on the domain name, because the recipient filter does not accept wildcard at first position in the -like condition.

  15. Disable email notification about missed chat (Mac Skype for business)

    Would it be possible to have same feature for Mac's Skype for business to disable missed conversation. In Windows Skype for business you can do that from Personal settings -> Save IM conversation in my email Conversation History folder.

  17. URL shortener when sharing

    when sharing links to documents, etc, the URL's are way too long.

    Can you integrate something like bitly or another tool to make them less than the 208 characters that the last link I shared was.

    The ideal place to offer this feature is when you are given the option to 'copy' the URL.

    I am also waiting to see a response from this post: https://goo.gl/h6wTRt

    The last comment says:
    *Update March 15, 2016: We’re working on a new approach to shortening the sharing links that will better enhance our users’ experience. Unfortunately, we had to remove the current experience…

  18. Simplify adding ics file item to current Outlook calendar

    Double-clicking an Internet calendar item (.ics file) attachment in Outlook causes a new calendar to be created, instead of opening it or asking if it should be added to the user's calendar as expected (and as previously implemented in earlier versions of Windows/Outlook).

    To add it to the current calendar, it must be saved to the local drive then opened (File>Open). Outlook then asks if it should be opened as a new calendar or added to the current calendar...this same behavior should be used for double-click open.

    Dragging the .ics attachment to the calendar results in a transient error message,…

  19. Allow PowerBI.com to Connect Directly to Azure Data Lake Storage across Azure Directories

    Currently a Power BI desktop work can be created with a data source of Azure Data Lake store when provided with any URL and login details. This connector is still in preview, but works fine. If the workbook is then published to Power BI.com the data source credentials are lost and connectivity to ADL is only possible if the storage is part of the same Azure subscription as directory that Office 365/Power BI is connected to.

    In reality we need the data source to be generic and for PowerBi.com and be able to authenticate across Azure AD directories.

    Please!

  20. Share PowerApps with Office 365 Groups

    Office 365 Groups (aka: "unified-groups") are becoming the "standard" share target in Office 365. You can share SharePoint content (files, list items, etc.) with an O365 Group. You can share Microsoft Stream content with an O365 Group. You can share a Flow with an O365 Group. You CANNOT, however, share a PowerApp with an O365 Group. This is a huge issue and greatly complicates our job of "selling" PowerApps as a solution.

    For example, we've successfully convinced a LOT of our client groups that an O365 Group is a better solution than "just" a SharePoint site (most of these had…
