  1. Enable Buildout of a Public Website within 90 days.

    We recently started a business and registered the domain through Office 365 due to its supposed "business friendly" nature. However, when trying to launch a public facing website, we were informed by customer support that this cannot happen within 90 days of purchase -- until the domain can be effectively transferred. Now our company is forced to either pay for another domain at a separate, different domain address than desired, or to forgo public web presence for 90 days until eligible for transfer under Microsoft rules. Does this seem user-friendly for young companies? Certainly not. Microsoft should enable the build…

  2. Allow customization of the message sent on an encrypted email (company branding)

    Would like to make the message that a client gets when we encrypt an email not look so 'spammy' or 'phishy' by customizing the verbiage and putting our company logo.

  3. In One Drive app, if an user can scan and add a document in already saved pdf file in a folder later on, that would help to organize!

  4. Stop proofing language (in PowerPoint) changing automatically to keyboard layout language

    As mentioned above, PowerPoint changes text proofing language automatically to whatever keyboard layout you're using, rather than what you set in Options - Languages, or Review - Languages. This is surely not intended behaviour and needs the option of being turned off.

    I've been told to post here by a customer rep on the Office 365 helpdesk.

  5. Better overview of permissions set to (sub)folders in Outlook

    If I want to see what permissons I have given to folders and subfolders of my Inbox, I have to open them one by one.
    I would like to see a quick overview in an complete outline.

  7. Word do things - but often not that, what you want...

    My favorite every new Wordeinstellung, annoying me like this:
    Capitalize every sentence after a point. Take out the hoes. So I can be sure that after a e.g. Also the "A" in also remains small (as here in the example). Further examples: etc. u.a. etc. - Logical - for Word apparently still not.

    It costs time and nerves, if one has to do that with several PC's / Notebooks / Laptops etc. The function that I want to have the hook outside is stored only locally. The best is, however, if you notice the whole thing only when it is…

  8. include title in tickets

    I often have multiple tickets open at the same time. By default Microsoft always uses the ticket no as subject when mailing forth and back.
    It is very difficult to differentiate tickets based on the no and it would help enormously to have a short title added to the email subject

  9. Microsoft Word

    Microsoft Word should have a similar Excel capability of a worksheet/workbook- for those who use Word and may not have access to OneNote. This way individuals could toggle between old/new Word Documents without (ideally) having to have multiple Word Documents open.

  10. IWORD Highlight, exsisting color selections are very dark. Add a button to decrease color 25% or 50%.

    In WORD the Highlight tool has few existing color selections that you can read text through. Most are very dark. Add a button to decrease color 25% or 50% that would help one read the word or text through the highlight selected. What about adding More Colors like is available in the Font tool.

  11. Implement a feature to hide the Suggested times when editing the event

    Need implementing a feature to hide the Suggested times when editing the event on Outlook on the web. This feature can prevent users from changing the times by mistake.

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

  12. SharePoint left hand nav-suggest for link to open in new tab

    It would be beneficial if the a left-hand navigation item on a SharePoint site which is just a URL would open that new website in a different tab, rather than overriding the SharePoint site.

  14. SharePoint - Wanna see automaticlaly on opening screen all the site in alphabet order, which I have right to.

    We have users who get rights for or company sites / shared documents. But they don't have a full look of the sites, a directory tree, with they could see all the sites / document they have rights to. They want to see all sites / storages, like in a folder tree in windows exlorer.

  16. bug

    When resetting the password in the New Administration Center, it does not change the address for sending to the next user. As an alternative, it was suggested that you use the old Administration Center.

    Please fit this bug

  17. Allow emailing links to synced OneDrive documents via Attach File --> recent items in a new email

    When composing a new email and selecting attach file you are presented with a list of all of your previously accessed files. (both cloud and local) This is a great feature however it is limiting that any file that you open up in your synced local OneDrive directory on your machine attach as just attachments rather than being able to attach a link of the file.

    We are trying to promote the idea of being able to provide direct links to cloud saved files from this list of recently accessed files and having an inconsistent experience here is not helping…

  18. Codec missing in order to use screen recording feature in PowerPoint

    I love this screen recording feature; however, it relies on codec which is missing on my machine. In order to get it working, I was told to download an EXE from a web site and to execute on my machine with worrying. Why not including the required codec in Office package so that people will not jump through hoops and worry about executable with possible virus? (Note, I am not trying to convert any existing videos)
