  1. Allow horizontal and vertical display for onenote tabs and pages. It's INSANE you eliminated this functionality

    OneNote used to allow horizontal tabs to display along with vertical \ right side subpages. The new update eliminates it. Put it back in. It's the whole reason people use it. Tons of people complaining about this I haven't seen any response or feedback

  3. In the coming times of hybrid cloud everywhere please make O365 as modular as possible

    I'd like to ask for modularity, flexible building blocks of the optimal hybrid cloud based construction of the individual digital workplace.

    We are ~600 engineers working in many locations in Germany and other countries as well.

    We have built custom IBM Domino applications to support our staff with tools that fit their need. Done this we are bound to having domino licenses. So mail licenses are existing for us.

    With the need for office and for the other cool stuff you're offering in O365 we're asking ourselves how to put things together in an optimal way.

    So is ask you…

  4. Allow SharePoint on-premise content service in Office 365 client programs

    Office 2016 Click to run has disabled the option for connections to SharePoint on-premise and only has online options. For hybrid scenarios this is a serious flaw

  5. Allow for different timeout periods base on OWA policy.

    Since we have all are user in the same O365 tenant there isn't a way to have diffferent OWA timeout periods for different types of users. I think the best way to split this out would be an option you could enable on the users OWA policy that would over ride the tenant setting.

  8. Users only have access to a subsite cannot post pictures in the Sitefeed of the subsite's

    If "User A" has full-control permission to https://contoso.sharepoint.com/sites/rootsite/subsite and he doesn't have any permission to https://contoso.sharepoint.com/sites/rootsite/, he may not be able to post pictures to Sitefeed in https://contoso.sharepoint.com/sites/rootsite/subsite with the following error:

    "You don't have access on this page."

    This is because the "SelectPicture2.aspx", which is called when the camera icon is pressed to select pictures, requires access to the top level site of the site collection (to check template ID of the site collection).

    This can cause a strange behavior reported above and the only way to workaround this is to give at least "read" permission of the…

  10. Enhance Conditions in Content Searchi n the Security and Compliance Center

    Provide additional more granular Conditions to Content Search and eDiscovery in the Security and Compliance Center. Quite often, we need to retrieve emails, for example, that are specifically between two people – i.e. they are the only people to in the From: and To: fields. Currently, searches will return all emails where the people are mentioned anywhere in From:, To:, CC:, and Bcc: fields. This then needs further (usually tortuous) manual searching in the exported PST files.

  11. recently, a archive folder appear and what do office365 want to do with the archive folder?

    recently, a archive folder appear and what do office365 want to do with the archive folder? As it seems to be created by the server and yes we can delete it but wait... after a while, the system will just silently recreate the "archive" folder back to everyone mailbox. this actually created some stupid mindset to my user that, as long as they place their email into the archive folder, their emails are archived and at the same time, it free up their server storage space. to the tech who though of this "archive" folder, please rethink why you add…

  12. Sync client should convert the server-side SharePoint "Link to a Document" Content Type to a client-side internet shortcut (.URL) file

    The "Link to a Document" server-side SharePoint Content Type is useful for creating links between documents for people who use the SharePoint web interface, but these links are not available when the SharePoint library is synced to a client computer. It would be useful the sync client converted these links to a form which is usable client-side, such as a .URL internet shortcut file.

    Also, over the past week I have noticed that having an item of "Link to a Document" Content Type in a synced library causes the OneDrive Sync client to get stuck and never finish syncing the…

  13. OneNote Online - There is no way to go back the original page when navigating through hyperlien to another page.

    I use OneNote Online as a very convenient way to make online documentation that I share through a read-only link. In OneNote, I use a feature that allow to insert hyperlink in a page to refer to another page topic, as we do usually in online documentation. However, in a book, there is no way to navigate back to the original page, which is very useful in online documentation. It would be great to provide a way to go back to where I came from in the book when following hyperlink.

  15. Filing of Emails to Folders in Outlook

    Since a recent update, we are now unable to file emails to folders within our Outlook without causing a lengthy delay of over 30 seconds per email. Our Outlook file is quite large with hundreds of folders, however this was not ever a problem before the update. A fix for this would be most appreciated.

  16. Easy manual Office update process

    Can you provide an easy way to kick off the Office check for updates without having to open an application and navigate to the Account page first please?

    A command line option or click–to–run executable flag, anything which might be made into a clickable shortcut on the taskbar, start menu or desktop, or even a timed event.

    I write code and I like to seek updates before I settle down to a coding session so I'm building on a PC which isn't in a state of flux; or at least as settled as a modern Windows PC can be adrift…

  18. Feature Request: deactivate Teams UC on certain device types

    We'd like to ensure that we can disable Teams UC functionality on a device-level.
    Rationale: some devices (e.g. Virtual Client) don't have the performance to support UC/Video Calling, but users have different devices to do so.
    Therefore, we'd like to deactivate UC features not on a user-level, but on a device level (e.g. Group Policies, Config Settings in C:\Program Files, ...)

    MSO support was very lacking with a recent issue in regarding to viewing groups a user was assigned to on Outlook 2016. Although this version of office is no longer supported users in an org are able to connect to exo and perform various mailbox actions. It is very inconsistent depending on where it is installed.

    In our org we had a user that was able to view her membership in an Office 365 on laptop but not on a desktop although the same version of office 2016 MSO installed on both. Support for this issue with office 365 team…

    We tried to make an attempt to personalize our email communicatoins with our customers. To do that we decided to add profile pictures so our customers could put a face with a name. It turns out it can't be done according to MS tech support. Wow does that seem crazy. it only works internal to your company. We can't be the only people who want to personalize our email. Not sure why it can't pass through the profile picture if it can send so many other pictures! Please fix this soon!!!
