  2. Make sign out button

    I have two account - my company's and my customer's. And I have to switch between them all the time. But it is not so easy. When I receive an email which has a link in it I often can't access it because I'm logged in to another account. And there is no easy way to sign out and sign in to proper one.

  3. Create a Library Template keeping column default values (including folder level)

    We have standard folder structure we use for our projects, and a standard content type. We use column defaults at the library and folder level. However, when we use the library to create a template, the defaults don't carry over. The folders are there, but the defaults all need to be set.

  4. Display the top image of the video as the thumbnail automatically in Office365 Video

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    Office 365 ビデオのサムネイルにて動画の最初の画面が表示されない動作について

    Display the top image of the video as the thumbnail automatically in Office365 Video
    ***************
    ■Description(内容):
    Office 365 ビデオのサムネイルについて"動画をアップロードしてから自動的に動画のトップ画面がサムネイルとして表示される、もしくはサムネイルの管理設定にて動画のトップ画面が選択できる状態" となるよう改善してほしい。
    詳細内容:
    動画がチャンネルにアップロードされた後、自動的にサムネイルに設定される画像が動画のトップ画面にならない。
    サムネイルの管理設定から変更しよう思っても、トップの画面が出てこない場合がある。
    動画のトップ画面のスクリーンショットを取得してから、アップロードして設定することは可能だが、 本来は手動ではなく、アップロードしてから自動的にビデオの最初の画面がサムネイルとして表示される動作が望ましいので動作を改善してほしい。

    I have noticed that the automatically generated thumbnail will not be the top image of the video when I upload the video to the channel. I tried to change the thumbnail manually from the list of pre-generated thumbnails in “Manage” menu in Office365 Video, however, sometimes the top image of the video is not even included in the list. Although I can set the top image as the…

  5. Save Review/Track Changes Markup Options with document. Starting over each time is a real nuisance.

    Some change tracking only needs to follow insertions/deletions and not formatting - especially since tracking format and comments 'shrinks' the viewing area for the doc. Having to reset Options every time a doc is opened makes editing/tracking that much more difficult and time consuming. If Options were saved with the doc, then resetting each time wouldn't be necessary.

  6. freetext search for 'folder name' in outlook when filing an email.

    for heavy business users with lots of folders, moving and filing can be a pain with unnecessary scrolling and clicking. an idea would be to enable freetext search when selecting 'move' email that would quickly search for the folder/subfolder name and allow the email to drop. An extension to that would be to recommend other emails in the conversation to also be filed once one is (however, this can be optional).

  7. Allow Users To Change Their Own Profile Pic With OWA Deactivated

    Allow Office365 users to edit their own profile pic, when (Office on the web), OWA has been disabled.

    The ability for users to edit their own profile pic from portal.office.com was recently removed by Microsoft. This feature should be made available again, so that user's can edit their own pic.

    Without this feature, Office365 administrators must change every user's profile pic.

  8. Toggle notifications for Outlook shared or delegate folders

    We have crucial alerts that come in via a shared folder, but notifications for shared folders is turned off by design. We understand that's great for a lot of people, but we really need these notifications to make sure we don't miss these alerts.

  9. In Word and Excel, make the colored bar (blue / green) down the left side of the File tab wider ...

    ... to allow more of the filenames that appear at the bottom to be visible. Currently the bar is so narrow as to make the listing file names useless.

  11. Please stop removing menu shortcuts from the taskbar with every upgrade / change

    Please stop removing menu shortcuts from the taskbar with every upgrade / change of office 365. I like to have Excel, Word and Powerpoint as shortcuts directly in the taskbar. Every now and then (after changes or updates) I need to re-place the shortcuts on the taskbar... this is very annoying from a user perspective.

  12. licensing issue: despite current license, office 365 business premium desktop apps dont allow access

    Recently I started my computer offline and couldn't open my outlook or work on Word, excel etc. Reason: office 365 could not verify my license expiry (expiry is after 11 months of the date of error). And so I could not use the apps I paid for and has a current license. Talking to the technician who fixed after calling and waiting for 5 hours for support, said this is a common issue.

    Really frustrating! I am considering moving to Google for business as I can't have my business be affected once a month (apparently microsoft checks licensing status every…

  13. Hebrew support

    When you open a .txt file in SharePoint, the text is all messed up because of the text encoding.
    In addition, Every text field in 365 Forms is left-aligned, and when you edit to align the text to the right it doesn't save the change. That leads to very inconvenient reading, especially with hebrew(or other RTL languages) mixed with english.

  17. Need OneNote iOS app to open notebook for external users

    We have committee members who are not part of our sharepoint who need access to the shared notebook. They should be able to open it on their iPads, but they cannot. The error message reads: Cannot Open Notebook. And offers the option to click OK, but it's not really an option since it's the only option.

  19. Multiple company integration

    I own multiple companies that are all using 365. I recently incorporated Planner, Teams, and full working file storage into one of my companies as a way to help with difficult project and communication issues.

    Because we own multiple companies and need to maintain several email addresses, my partner and I are struggling with expanding our use of Planner, Teams and other 365 features. Currently we have multiple 365 accounts, as a result we can only have our Teams app logged into one. If we utilize Teams for more then one company this presents an issue with getting the notification…
