    • Allow Flow to pick up SharePoint groups instead of using dynamic variables

      We have created a flow because in the classic view of a doc lib when you use "send a email to everyone" it is limited to 30 persons. The workaround was to use Flow and declare the groups in our SharePoint sites, by using dynamic expressions! So if you are not a developer but an end user, you cannot create a flow with your desired SharePoint groups. This must be easier to do.

      • Too long Mail address from Teams

        Mail address from Teams is too long so that sometime Mail address can't display correctly. Mail address from Teams displays below.

        Some user doesn't need part of xxxxxxxxxxxxx. Please add function to remove part of xxxxxxxxxxxxx in Teams.

        • Add option in Onedrive sync settings to allow new files and folder to automatically sync

          Currently if you choose folder and files to sync, new files and folders automatically do not sync, you have to go and turn them on (check box) which is really a pain in the butt.

            • When clChanging installed product key automatically upon closing one account and opening a new account

              Closing one account with Office 365 and starting a new one caused a problem with product keys in my new account. The software retained the expired product key and when the grace period ended, I had to call support to determine the best way to associate my new account with my new product key. This should be done without intervention by admins when an new account is opened. Add in a script to strip the old product key and associate the new account with the valid use license.

              • Make Office 365 for Mac the same as Office 365 for PC

                Office 365 for Mac is a rip off...there are too many features found on Office for PCs that are not included in Office for Mac, e.g. synchronous scrolling, linking objects, etc.

                • Replacments

                  It should be possible to do a Find and Replace on an existing document in Publisher to replace e.g. 1st with 1st (where the last "st" is in superscript)

                  • disable need for wifi connection when using office - if there is no wifi or comms infrastructure how are you supposed to use the application

                    Allow use of application when there is no connection to wifi and seek license rights when wifi connection returns. Otherwise cannot use OFFICE 365 when travelling

                    • Allow non-Azure AD Premium accounts to unblock accounts flagged with a fraud alert

                      Without a subscription to an Azure AD Premium, a user can issue a fraud alert on their O365 account with multifactor and block their account. The only way to have the account unblocked is via raising a ticket with support or subscribing to Azure AD Premium Plan 2 or higher. If the user is able to block their account, then an admin should be able to easily unblock it immediately.

                      • I find that the Read Aloud feature in Word helps me to edit my copy. I just wish it would work better. Because now - it doesn't.

                        The Read Aloud feature in Word is a great idea. It helps me to edit my copy. It would be nice if it had more voices to choose from and more importantly I just wish it would work . Because now - it doesn't work at all.

                        • AAD does not allow + sign for Forgot Password

                          Azure Active Directory account creation accepts '+' signs in email addresses (bob+jane@gmail.com) - that's good. However it does not accept them in the forgot password functionality. So, if you have a + sign in your address and forget your password, you're out of luck. Can you make the forgot password functionality work the same as account creation?

                            • I would like to have a function to arrange calendar menus (left pane in the calendar) to show multiple calendar groups hierarchically on Out

                              I would like to have a function to arrange calendar menus (left pane in the calendar) to show multiple calendar groups hierarchically on Outlook client. It would be really convenient if users can add some calendar groups to one calendar group as subgroups to categorize hierarchically when organizing calendar items. It is not really easy to locate each group as those calendar groups are listed in the calendar alongside.

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

                              • get rid off the automatic launch of onedrive app when viewing a library in Sharepoint app and Onedrive on mobile devives

                                On a mobile device (Android for example), when you access to a library, when you choose a library, onedrive app is automatically launched. You can then see your files within onedrice but you don't have any access to your predefined sharepoint views (filters that give direct access to relevant documents). So for a nomade user, it is useless. This behaviour has been confirmed by the Microsoft Support as a normal behaviour;

                                The only thing to be done is to uninstall onedrive on all the smartphones of the companiy.

                                  • Allowing the file name to contain multi-byte characters on support tickets

                                    I would like to use Japanese multi-byte characters on file name for an attachment on support tickets. We would like to take care of the files sent from our end-users, so it’s inconvenient for us to change the file name to use alphanumeric characters.

                                      Issue with auto generated passwords for Office365 users. O365 is used to generate a password... when logging in we get 'your email or password is incorrect'. If we manually generate a 'strong' password the user can login correctly. How can we make auto-generated passwords meet complexity requirements for login?

                                      This has been identified by the MS Support team as a bug in the underlying Office 365 platform.

                                      This issue didn't exist 3 weeks ago.

                                      • Alteração do site no sharepoint

                                        Desanimador saber que não é possível alterar nome de domínio do SharePoint, acho que é uma falha grosseira para uma empresa do porte da Microsoft, ou uma manobra mau intencionada de forçar a compra de outra conta para q isso ocorra.

                                        • outlook address update should be automatically..nk2 file should be same available in web browser address also.

                                          what ever address we are updating in outlook is not updated in portal.
                                          both should be sync.

                                          regards
                                          Tibhil
