  2. Add the "Browse" button to "Default local file location" field across all Office programs

    In most of the Office 2016 programs, you can specify the "Default local file location" in the Save tab of the Options menu. A field is available to enter the target file location that is to be set.

    However, only Word and Project have a "Browse" button that allows the users to navigate to the target location and thus populates "Default local file location" field. In Excel and PowerPoint, the "Browse" button is non-existent and only manual enter of the "Default local file location" field is possible.

    Is it possible to standardise the population of the "Default local file location"…

  3. Enable notification on private Yammer groups for mobile apps.

    Public groups show a notification on mobile app (i.e. iPhone) yet for some reason this does not work on private groups.

  6. When sharing calendar and choosing "Can view when I'm busy" allow to choose if the location can be seen/visible.

    When sharing calendar and choosing "Can view when I'm busy" allow to choose if the location can be seen/visible. The aim is to keep the subject data confidential, but avoid room overbooking. The purpose is to maintain different team/services own calendar, but be able to share them with other teams or external collaborators if the room is occupied at that time, without needing to make the process complex and overweight the system through the need of management of a "Room Calendar" for each room, besides the own team calendar.

  7. Improved Outlook cleanup

    Cleanup should not remove emails with embedded image if the recent email did not contain previous embedded image (from mobile).

  10. Bookings App: limit number of bookings, have links expire, don't allow forwarding

    In order for Bookings to be helpful, we need to ensure only one appointment can be booked through the URL sent. We do not want to the recipient to be able to forward the URL to someone else, and if they do, we do not want that person to be able to book using that URL. We'd also find value to having links that expire, to ensure someone can't reuse a booking invite sent months/years ago. Reasons: We are seeing an increased number of people who miss their scheduled appointment and then go back to the bookings app to rebook.…

  11. Syncing nightmare

    The problem I encountered is that syncing was somehow disabled for a period of time. Once syncing was re-enabled all the work I did was overwritten by what was on the server (i.e., by old data). So I lost all the work, which should never have happened since the data on my laptop was the last to me modified. I spent the entire day on the phone with several of your engineers who said this is a gliche with the syncing tool. This should not be an acceptable scenario for Microsoft. It should be easy enough to prevent this sort…

  14. Offer Office 365 subscription for only 2 PCs

    The decision to change # of licenses allowed for PCs when moving to the cloud platform is unfortunate. I am a "single, no kids" professional and use a desktop and laptop interchangeably. I don't need Office on my iPad or phone - I use my laptop when I am mobile. Please offer a reasonably priced "PC only" package that includes PPT, Word, Excel, and Outlook for install on 2 PCs. One license is not enough for me and 5 is too many, so I am still using only the Desktop software that allows install on 2 PCs and will do…

  15. Audit logs in O365 - clearer view to identify which user was granted with delegate access permission

    When we perform (delegate access permission)actions from Exchange Admin Center, the action from GUI will be translated to PowerShell Cmdlet, hence the information from the log was the cmdlet which used to perform the action.

    The cmdlet log information does not clearly identify which user was granted with the access permission. Hence if there can be an automatic translation from raw logs to something easier to understand will be great

  16. In Publisher the mailing function is a lot dumber than it is in Word.

    In Publisher the mailing function is a lot dumber than it is in Word. I have to choose between efficiency and aesthetics. The interface is incosistent too. Also, when printing I cannot set a "from" range (like "15-"). In Word you can.

  17. SharePoint online retention policy - delete folders

    Since we have enabled a 7 year retention on SharePoint online, users simply cannot delete a folder, they need to delete files within the folder / subfolders.
    Please change this, so users can simply delete a folder, it should then end up in the "Preservation Hold Library" in doing so. Currently this is unmanageable for users, and not user friendly at all

  18. Group roles together for activation in PIM

    We need the ability to group roles together in PIM for activation. Several tasks require more than one role to complete. This requires admins to activate several roles individually in order to compete certain workflows. Giving the ability to group roles together under a single custom activation would greatly improve productivity and PIM adoption.

    Using To Do and on the review page, the more button in the suggested for you section is only clickable Once. It will not show more when you click on it a second time. Please Fix so we can click on it a second time to scroll up more projects that a person may want to start.
