  1. Excel table format

    For Excel 2016 and future versions: Give the ability to change initial formatting in Excel table so that new rows are automatically formatted correctly just by typing a new entry below the table when the table automatically expands. Currently, drop-down data validation lists and colored formatting are set the moment the table is created, and there is no way to change this formatting, from which new rows grab their formatting.

  2. Exported Audit Log CSV file - unuseable data

    Hello, in the Audit log section of Search & Investigation (part of O35 Admin), after the data are exported and tried to analyse on excel, the columns do not have all the correct data, some are on the wrong place and with over 1000 rows of data, you cannot identify patterns or any meaningful ways to analyse the downloaded data. I have spoken to your Microsoft agent who suggested I post this online to make your backend product specialist to look into this further. Perhaps they can export the data and see how user friendly it is to analyse the…

  3. Smart Folder Search Save

    When search criteria is saved in Outlook creating a Smart Folder, I notice the search criteria is saved for only a few days or a few weeks. Eventually the search criteria is deleted and the search criteria falls back to "Folder is none". Searching the web, I discovered this problem even existed as far back as 2011. Now seven years later, it appears Microsoft has yet to fix this problem. This essentially makes smart folders useless.

  7. Buenas, añadir funcionalidad a OWA

    Buenas, OWA debería tener la funcionalidad de recuperar correos enviados para poder modificarlos o eliminar las copias de los correos que todavía no han sido leídos, ya que esta funcionalidad la tiene activa el cliente Outlook.

  8. Simpler Tasks in Planner

    It would be epic to be able to email a task to an employee and then they can click on it and add it to a group through planner, also having labels of tasks in planner be priority. Also then have the planner tasks transfer to the actual task app which is personal and be added to your personal calendar.

  10. publisher to recognize window themes

    Many of the other office products (word, ppt, xls) use theme files from the user's C: drive theme folder. Can publisher reference the same?

  11. Adding a download control feature to Outlook for iOS and Android

    I would like you to add the feature that controls attachment download to Outlook for iOS and Android. Currently, OWA for iOS and Android has the control feature to download attachments, but Outlook for iOS and Android doesn’t.

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

  12. Allow Certificate based Authentication for endpoint PC's

    With Modern Auth enabled and using a third party provider, my users shouldn't have to log in every time their password changes.Transparent certificate based auth exists for mobile phones not using the outlook app, but everything else requires some sort of authentication.

    It gets more frustrating when its every single application that prompts for new credentials, not just 1 app and pass those creds to the others.

  13. Create a simple "Make a Rule" button that operates like recording a macro. Example: click button, move item to folder, dialog asks if finish

    Create a simple "Make a Rule" button that operates like recording a macro. Example: click button, move item to folder, dialog asks to confirm parameters, if finished or to record another action, select exceptions, etc. Once clicking finished, it asks to name/save/execute it.

  15. Improve the Accessibility Checker in your Office Suite software programs

    I would like to suggest that the Accessibility Checker be improved by allowing the Accessibility Checker to identify font sizes less than the recommended accessible font size 12. Also, it would be great if the Accessibility Checker could distinguish that the recommended accessible sans serif font is not being used in each document. Do you think your progammer's can add this? I will be happy to be in on any beta tests as I work for a community college, and I am the Coordinator of Accessibility.
    Thank you,
    Lora Duvall

  16. dynamically change the size of the sharepoint drive up to the maximum (1Tb) to suit the user's needs.

    Having spent the last 2 hours with the Support Team finding out why we were unable to save files and were receiving an error message saying the drive was full, I was not happy to find out that MS had artificially capped our Sharepoint storage at approx 5Gb even though we have 1Tb allowance.
    I assume MS do not allocate the full 1Tb to every user as this would require them to have significant extra storage, most of which would be unused, but I see no reason why the limit could not be dynamically adjusted up to the maximum 1Tb…

  17. Video channels do not appear in the "Channel" page

    Video channels do not appear in the "Channel" page sometimes and I do not think it is proper behavior. Besides, once the issue happens, I have to edit there channel settings to solve it. I do not think the workaround is practical. I strongly need more convenient solution.

  18. improvement of the syntheses of the document and storage

    Dear Microsoft Inc,

    I suggest these instructions for your products:

    1°. A complete page for the document in order to give information (abstract, concepts, topical theme) for explaining the content of Excel, Word, Power Point document. This page shoud be read outside the environment of the document, for example, when one clicks the name of the archive.

    2°. When one cuts a paragraph (or number) to have three sequential storage data, in order to select from the three memories one of them.

    Best regards,

    Dr. Javier Alejandro Díaz Ponce

  19. Make Creating A New User Free

    I can buy a domain for $12/year. Google Apps will allow me to create 10 free accounts under this domain. That gives me 10 email boxes, 10 drives, 10 places for notes, 10 task lists, etc.

    This is somewhat available with Office 365 Groups, but this service needs some polishing.

    Drag and drop between email accounts/Office 365 Groups on mobile would be a game changer.

    Creating domains and online services is very cheap now. Proliferating these and helping people mange these will be very helpful.

  20. Word - Stay at current page when changing view

    When I open a document in Word, scroll to some page and then change view, e.g. to the read mode, the document scrolls back to the beginning, which is awfully inconvenient. Could Word stay at current page when changing view mode?
