  1. 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…

  4. 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…

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  9. Provide Better Coaching for New User Implementations

    Hi! I wanted to provide you a brief explanation, regarding my recent experience. I was informed by the Purchasing Department, when purchasing my Admin Account, that all I needed to do to enroll each staff member with an exchange account was to create their email address. Once the address was created, the essentials package would be automatically associated to the individual user(s). As of Sunday, I received notification that our account emails were kicking back transcriptions, when emailed by patients, staff members, etc. After 3.5 hours on the phone today with an IT Representative, I was able to determine that…

  10. Track Meetings Fix

    Fix issue to allow attendees to track meetings the same as the organizer. Works on Microsoft Outlook 2016 MSO (16.0.10325.20036) 64-bit,but no longer works on Microsoft Outlook 2016 MSO (16.0.9126.2259) 64-bit. So far workaround from O365 support is to roll back to older version.

  11. Keeping users setteings when upgrading Office version

    Microsoft should provide Office products or setting methods that have the compatibility with every customization applied or can maintain user's settings when upgrading the Office to the new version.

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

  13. Updates: Too silent, and therefore no idea if process is still busy.

    Update install process is actually too silent, leaving the user with no clue as to whether the process is running or not other than potentially trying to launch an application and have the launch fail, indicating that the process hasn't completed.

    WOuld be helpful if there was some indication that it is happening....

  14. See proposed meeting reschedule times on Outlook for iOS

    When somebody has proposed a different time for a meeting you should be able to see what time they've proposed.This is already a uservoice on 'outlook.uservoice.com' (8801674) but not even a comment from Microsoft since 2016. Not sure if the behavior on Android is the same.

  15. remove unused products easily

    I never use Outlook and PowerPoint. I would like to remove them so I don't have to wait for them to update everytime I want to use Excel or Word. An option to re install them later if needed would be good.

  16. MS Defender ATP enhancements

    Wish list for updates:

    I have few wish list from Defender ATP:

    1- Detect vulnerabilities with MS and third party software installed – (it only detects OS vulnerabilities). This would really help us to have a single view and reduce cost with third party vulnerability scanners.
    2- Detect when accounts are added in the local administrators’ group.
    3- Manage Windows end point firewall from Defender ATP.
    4- Detect/block abnormal traffic behavior such as command and control.
    5- Pull computer objects from AD and alert when Defender ATP is not installed.

  17. Allow Skype Business PSTN users to pick up a colleagues phone line

    Allow Skype for Business PSTN users to pick up other colleagues phone lines when away from the desk. Same concept as having a secretary (or someone else) answer a phone, put it on hold and someone else picking up that call from their handset.

  18. Office 365 Non-Profit Donation

    Hi Ali

    Just a recap on the progress of Office 365 for non-profits.

    From your previous email with the links attach I eventually worked out that nothing is actually for free, the point I missed was that the software still had to be purchased although at a discount, which we are still not able to afford. So I will not be using the portal in the future.

    This was a bit of a letdown as I was hoping that Microsoft could have made a minimum package of Excel, Word and PowerPoint available for non-profits as a gift. But business is…

  19. Documents - Should Have the Folder path as automically populated metadata inside a Library

    When we create a view without folders, it is very difficult to determine where the files resides in the folder hierarchy. Similar concern occurs when a set of files are found in search results.
