  2. Issue with the message trace fields on macOS Firefox

    It seems that the default behaviour on Firefox for macOS on the message trace http://protection.office.com/ portal research field is to validate the input when a dot "." isput in.
    Could you change that behaviour ?

  3. Add MMS in text messaging settings

    SMS is not a good option for many messages sent nowadays. MMS will be much better.

  5. Reduce the number of "See more" buttons in Teams user interface

    Reading through replies on messages quickly become very cumbersome. This is especially the case with longer messages and answers.
    As an example:
    To read a full post and it's 15 replies I have to click:
    1 "See more" on the message
    2 Click on "15 replies from Jose, Anna, Peter and 11 others"
    3 - 18 Click on "see more" 15 times to read all the answers.

    My counter proposal:
    One "See more" button for the complete message
    One "x replies from ,..." button that expands all the replies. With the option to collapse replies one by one.

    Alternatively adding…

  6. Authenticator app for Mac for seamless login across o365 apps

    On IOS the authenticator app allows me to sign in, once and all microsoft apps to communicate with the authenticator app to get my login details.

    Please introduce similar capability for Mac OS, our company (Large Enterprise) are heavy users of o365 (outlook, teams, skype, onedrive etc) but it is really annoying coming in the office and having to type in your password (and MFA) 3-5 times before all your apps are working.

  7. Information about Office 365 ProPlus security updates on the Japan Security Team blog is not easy to understand for end users

    I would like you to provide more detailed information about Office 365 ProPlus security updates for end users. Currently Japan Security team delivers blog posts for the security updates but it’s a bit confusing and less information compared with the public information on Windows or Office client. I would like to have better public facing article to prevent users from contacting the helpdesk each time.

  8. Would like to continue utilizing Share Workbook button and its functionality

    Currently, we can use the Share Workbook button and its functionality, but we don’t see the button on Office client sometimes because the collaboration feature has been added lately.
    It is still possible to show the button on the Office client by changing the settings. However, we are not allowed to use OneDrive or SharePoint because of our company operation policy. We would like you to continuously keep the function on Office client from here on out.

  9. allow Yammer app on phones to stay logged in.

    There is a session timeout and yammer will kick you out from app on your phone and you have to re-login.
    Suggesting let users sign in and stayed signed in or at least give option to save username and password and this should work with SSO so you dont have to authenticate all the time.

  10. Allow user to select permissions level when sharing calendar

    When you share a calendar with someone via OWA, why cant you select the permissions level from the same screen?

    Why does it have to be a separate action to go back and assign the correct permissions level?

  11. Create Group Policy to disable new-feature popup notifications

    When you open the locally installed Office 365 versions of Word, Excel, or PowerPoint, you periodically get a popup notification indicating features that have been recently added.

    This is annoying in student and kiosk environments, where the user wants to quickly get on the computer, get something done, and then get off the computer.

    Create a Group Policy, or an equivalent registry key, that will disable these notifications.

  12. Keep a One Drive for Business file offline even after free up space

    If I select a file in my Windows Explorer and mark the file as "Always keep on this device" it should be available offline even after I select "Free up space". We need this feature to ensure that you have access to important files even without a network connection.

  18. Improve how to submit survey

    I would like you to provide some other survey methods for us, because the survey would be sent to admin contact even the support requester shouldn’t always be an IT admin. It’s uncomfortable to submit the survey for admin who didn’t contact MS support.
