  1. Allow delegates the ability to access Exchange Online Archive without Full Access permissions

    When a user provides delegate access to calendar or folders, they should have the ability to apply the same permissions on their Exchange Online Archive without providing full access permissions for the delegate. When the permission is applied on the folder level of the Exchange Online Archive, it should be easy for the delegate to access the Exchange Online Archive in Outlook or Outlook Web App.

  2. add @mention function in comments in all online office documents

    In Google docs etc, you can add a comment (just like office 365) but you can @mention. We use it a lot for collaboration and we are trying to migrate to Office 365. This missing feature, while not a show stopper, is causing some groups real pain.

  3. Hide mobile number in contact info.

    I log in. I am asked for a mobile number so I can verify account changes and reset my password. I find my mobile number listed on my contact card. I remove my mobile number. I log in.

  4. allow enterprises to automatically configure OneDrive for Business upon first time login

    Currently, OneDrive for business can be automated to a point where adminstrators can launch OneDrive Setup but the user still has to key in their email address to set it up. This makes it harder to ensure folder redirection for every user works. If we could allow the first time setup to be automated, Orgaisations can ask users to restart their workstation once to confirm folder redirection will take place.

  5. Visio for Office 365 for Mac

    Since Office 365 is supposed to be device independent, it would be great if Visio/Visio Pro would have a mac version that is available through Office 365.

  7. Enable Visio 2013 and Project 2013 in Office 2016

    Enable use of Visio and Project with 365 and Office 2016. Office 2016 deletes Project and Visio even though we've paid for the software. There is no easy way to roll back either. This should be a no brainer.

  8. Unify or Aggregate ALL Tasks

    Using several Microsoft services (Outlook, OneNote, Planner, Project, Dynamics CRM ++).. Tasks are a huge mess. One creates tasks here, there and everywhere but what is severely lacking is ONE unified view/application to aggregate all the tasks you have created no matter which (Microsoft) service you have created them in. No "Add to Outook", the task is just there. Please bring this feature to f.ex Wunderlist. Also add possibility to add several user identities into the aggregated view.

  9. Enable reports to view the usage of Visio Pro.

    I would like to see if users who have a visio Pro license are actually using this license. There is no option at the moment. This would be very welcome in the report area.

  10. Support Document Sets in Modern libraries

    Enable support for Document Sets in Modern SharePoint libraries.

    Document sets are a very useful alternative to folders and are used in sophisticated document management scenarios. The lack of support for these in Modern libraries forces us to retain Classic libraries in many cases

  11. Add the "Manage Rules" Function in Conditional Formatting for Excel Online.

    Now that conditional formatting is available in Excel Online, there is no way to view or edit the rules that are already in effect. Normally (offline) you can highlight a range of cells and then select "Manage Rules" from the Conditional Formatting drop down menu. As it is right now you can only clear all the rules or add new rules, but there is no way to modify existing rules or view the formulas for existing rules. This is very frustrating!

  12. Ability to change the proofing language for all users

    The proofing language for Word Online etc. is set to English US by default, and whilst you can change this on a single document, it automatically defaults back to English US for every new document created.

    I've spoken to Microsoft, who confirmed this is by design, and cannot currently be changed at a global/admin level.

  13. Disable DropBox integration on OneDrive for Business and Office Online

    Hi,

    Would it be possible to add a admin option to disable the prompts for DropBox integration. We encourage staff to use OneDrive for business as a Cloud storage solution, but the DropBox prompts will confuse staff into thinking we also support this as a method of storing their work.

    From a data compliance point of view and a support point of view we do not want to be in a position of encouraging the use of storage outside of Office365.

    Kind Regards,

    Matt

  14. ABILITY TO TURN OFF AUTOSAVE

    Not everyone wants the AUTOSAVE option. Microsoft need to build in the ability to disable the autosave. I frequently use one document to create another and the autosave means that I cannot keep both versions without lots of back peddling into older versions, which I do not have the capacity to time manage

  16. Allow winrm authentication other than basic when connecting via powershell

    Please provide an option for creating a new powershell session with Office 365 with an authentication method other than basic. Due to hardening policies in place, when I attempt $O365Session = New-PSSession -ConfigurationName Microsoft.Exchange -ConnectionUri https://ps.outlook.com/powershell -Credential $O365Cred -Authentication Basic -AllowRedirection

    It fails because basic authentication is currently disabled in the client configuration (due to group policy settings we implemented).

  18. Office 365 Connected Accounts Update Frequency

    I suggest you update Office 365 to allow the user to configure the frequency at which Connected Accounts (gmail, yahoo, etc) are synch'd to Exchange/Outlook. Waiting up to an hour to receive new messages from other accounts is simply NOT acceptable. This has been a known issue for years and needs to be changed NOW.

  19. 1 central location for corporate templates (Word, PowerPoint, Excel etc.)

    1 central location for your corporate templates such as Word, PowerPoint, Excel etc. These templates can/may be maintained by a department like MarCom (Marketing and Communications).

    When you are in an Office Group for example and click [New] at your library, you should have an option "Corporate". This option then should give you 'Which Corporate Template would you like to use?' giving the templates that MarCom provided.

  20. Enhance the OneDrive Sync Client to support authenticated proxies.

    Enterprise environments commonly use outbound proxies that require the outbound traffic to provide authentication credentials. When an application generates the traffic, the application needs to be able to response to the proxy request for credentials. Today, the sync client does not respond to request for credentials and the outbound traffic is blocked.
