  1. Prevent licensed Teams users (in Islands mode) from attempting to communicate with unlicensed users.

    Currently a user licensed for Teams with Upgrade Policy = Islands, can search for and IM / Call / Desktop share an unlicensed Teams user / SfB On-Prem Hybrid user. However, the user experience is poor. IM's result in an email advising the SfB user is trying to be reached by the Teams user. Calling is forwarded to Cloud Voicemail, Desktop Sharing does nothing. Either a) hide SfB users from the search, or b) improve the user experience - hide options that will not work, provide clear messaging to the Teams user.

  3. very poor service

    last week i enquired about the email plan for my company and your representative told me that you will recieve a call regarding that plan details . i had to purchase that plan within 2 days which i also told him but its been more than 5 days i have not recieved any call. If this kind of service you provide for sales then i can imagine how poor service you will provide after puchasing the plan.

  4. Uninstaller for Office 365 fofr Mac

    Office 365 for Mac needs an uninstaller. Current instructions are complicated, involve user going into system files, and never seem to actually do the job in the sense that some settings always end up being retained somehow.

  5. Provide users with perpetual licenses free Office 365 usage

    I have a perpetual office license for my PC and my Mac. Now I want to use office on my iPad Pro and am asked to get a subscription. That makes no sense as I have already purchased two licenses. This should be available to me at no extra cost.

  7. Add option to cancel accidental closing of an application like Microsoft Outlook.

    Add option to cancel accidental closing of an application like Microsoft Outlook. Currently if a user accidentally clicks the wrong X and closes Microsoft Outlook, a popup asks Do you want to permanently delete everything in the "Deleted Items" folder for all accounts? YES NO It would be great to have the CANCEL CLOSE option

  8. Outlook desktop - Move Function - Allow 'search' option when moving emails from inbox

    When moving an email from your inbox, the ability to 'search' folders under the move option on the ribbon (from the inbox) would increase productivity. Similar to the search option available online for Outlook in 365.

  9. Discoverability and consistency across Office 365 apps is poor

    We're doing a trial version of Office 365 Business Premium and the overall experience has been pretty poor. One thing that is confusing is the my apps section (clicking on the squares in upper left). With Business Premium there is a large list of apps that I've never heard of, but no ability to tell what they do. Clicking on them sometimes opens up a new window, and sometimes uses the existing one. When I get to the new web application, for something like Delve or Planner there is no explanation anywhere of what the purpose of the app is.…

  12. Onsend events in new look OWA need to be working before it is made the default UI

    The onsend events currently do not work for the new look OWA client. We need this functionality before this client becomes the default. Without it, our solutions (and I am sure many others) will stop working.

  13. Put an Electronic 'E' in place of the big not-so-useful PASTE button in MS Word.

    '... you are not thinking; you are merely being logical."
    - Rory Sutherland.

    First and foremost, the importance of research in MS Word is underestimated and way too logical. The 'Help' tab and 'Smart Lookup' both appear on the right pane (right side), which is inconvenient for users to look and process as this side is mostly associated with the creative part of the brain. Moreover, this is a task to learn in itself, which would set off a lot of people who would instead use Internet Explorer. Also, MS Word and Internet Explorer are indispensably interconnected, as people use…

  15. OWA for iPhone 6 lacks the functionality found in Outlook. There is no Option to delete an item; opening emails fails frequently

    Have OWA functionality with the same functionality of Outlook. Requires adding to OWA 1. automatic sizing when opening an email or contact; 2. functionality such as ability to delete contacts; 3. eliminate large colored button - too big for iPhones; 4. contact information is not sized for viewing all contact data; 5. provide an alphabet down side of view that would allow easy movement to all M's instead of having to scroll through all contacts from A.

  18. Search documents via only their metadata tags across multiple libraries

    We have multiple document libraries across multiple sites that share metadata terms, like Function (HR, Security, Administrative, etc.) and Category (policy, procedure, form, etc.). I would like to provide our users with a metadata search page that allows document search across our multiple sites and libraries, that would return only those documents matching a given Function/Category metadata combination (HR/Form). My understanding is that this is a current limitation of SharePoint, so I would like this added as an enhancement. Thank you!
