  1. Keep up the good work!

    I run a very small 2 man office and had a heck of a time feeling good about managing email and collaboration tools, etc. Office 365 has been nirvana for us. Thank you and please keep up the good work.

  2. Add the 'Featured/Shared' ability to Outlook.

    On starting Word or Excel previews are shown of standard or popular templates for the user to select.
    On clicking 'SHARED' a preview is shown that may be a company's standard form templates for users to open and fill in. The directory read here can be pointed for all users to one location.
    This feature is brilliant!! :-)

    On creating as new email, selecting from a central templates directory would be good too.

    The current method of saving things away is a bit disjointed. It would be so much better if Outlook had that selection built in.

  3. "Since the last update (in the past week or so) the find and replace function in Word has been unable to find the "upside down quote marks"

    Since the last update (in the past week or so) the find and replace function in Word has been unable to find the "upside down quote marks" that appear in languages such as German and Polish. I used to be able to copy them into the search box, but this no longer works. This is critical for the work I use Word for. So I don't have a suggestion, I have a demand: Fix this or lose me as a customer.

  4. Allow external people to book a time on your calendar for an appointment

    This idea is so I can provide a custom link to potential clients / current clients to book a meeting time based on a type of request.

    Similar to programs such as, , calendly.com and hubspot bookings.

  6. Cache settings for public folders.

    I would be nice to have the possibility to set the cache for public folders, roomfolders etc in outlook. Not only for standalone mailboxes.

    Thank you.

  7. Office Licensing

    Allow us to opt out of the MS "Sign In" during installation. We have a frickin license key, that should be good enough.

  8. View Names of all Sharing a OneDrive file/folder

    It is not possible to quickly see and track a list of individuals names/emails who you have allowed to share an item. You can only click on the avatar icons one by one-- and if there are many then that is unsatisfactory.

  9. Have private note entering facility on 0365 emails

    Include a feature similar to that of Notes on Presenter's View in power point. This is important to capture the rationale for certain decisions which are communicated via email. Very often one finds it difficult to recall after sometime, the rationale for such decisions. Only the sender should see these notes.

  11. Please don't retire OWA if removal from quarantine will continue to be required for Outlook app

    We rely on the OWA app for staff use on personal and BYOD devices. The OWA app permits staff/boards/commissions/etc to check email on their personal phones in a manner that does not permit them to download mail to their phones and thus does not make the devices themselves subject to public records disclosure. Restricting users to a client also offers us an additional level of authentication, as well. If we are forced to switch to the Outlook app, we would then have to remove users from quarantine which not only requires administrator intervention, but would users the ability to download…

  12. Allow Office apps to override Windows High Contrast

    It's important for Office apps (especially PowerPoint and Excel) to show their actual colors during construction, even if Windows High-Contrast mode is being used to make the rest of the desktop and apps easier to use. Please make it an option in Office apps to override the Windows High-Contrast mode. (Generally, High-Contrast is very helpful, but in PowerPoint and Excel it makes the presentation appearance practically impossible to gauge).

  14. How to Export Mailbox to PST from Offline EDB

    Microsoft Exchange is the most prominent and easily handled server among mid and large sized organizations. This exchange server acts like a centralized system which contains mails, contacts and other data which is required for communication. In EDB file format all the mailbox data will be stored here. All the data can be accessed by the users, until the connection is established with exchange server. Users no longer can access the data once the connection is disconnected from the server until and unless the mailbox file mounted again to exchange server.
    These problems can be avoided if we have offline…

  17. Please allow to send mail with alias

    There is a workaround. I'm in contact with an microsoft supporter. He says ... there is a official supportet way, but we where not able to set it up properly yet. It is to create a distribution group, and make then thousand things ...

    But, it seems to be a problem, because of the displayed name, which must be different. So if my name is Henry Smith, I have to be Henry Smith1 and Henry Smith2. So what ....?

    Why you are not allowing, simply to send mail in the name of an alias? Setup the user, create the new…

  18. Make PowerApps Apps available in AppSource

    AppSource (https://appsource.microsoft.com/) is a great place for Web Apps and Office 365 add-ins, but there is no option for us to get mobile or PowerApps apps. If AppSource provides a platform for PowerApps apps, or if the PowerApps portal allow users to add PowerApps apps from the AppSource we will have a great platform for companies to make and distribute LOB SaaS PowerApps solutions.

  19. allow for more folders to be nested in SharePoint Online for use with Excel

    If there are too many subfolders in a folder path to a Shared Documents spreadsheet, Excel will ask you to sign in with your Office 365 credentials. After logging in, you get the same log in prompt over and over again. The only way around it is to open files with long folder paths within File Explorer.

  20. Better insight in changes to licensing plans of Office 365

    It would be nice to see what the differences are in license plans, for example under "Office 365 A1 for students" there is a new plan "Office Mobile Apps for Office 365". which came into conflict with plan "Office 365 ProPlus" of license "Office 365 ProPlus for students". Because we are using PowerShell scripts to add licenses to our students, we often see that the license plans are changing and all the new plans are automatically enabled by introduction. it would be nice to see what the real differences are of the licensing plans compared to each other.
