  1. SharePoint - limit user search scope to global address list

    Introduce feature for SharePoint to limit search scope for users to only search the global address list. We have admins we hide in global address list but when searching in SharePoint they appear.

    In teams there is a feature we can use:
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/teams-scoped-directory-search#turn-on-scoped-directory-search

    can you add this to SharePoint as it would be very useful.

    Thanks
    Joanne

  6. Integrate Microsoft Teams with Outlook

    I would like to have a shared email box with the option to save an email as a pdf in a teams file folder and also share an attachment of an email in a shared email box to a file folder in Teams. And then set up a flow for this to automatically happen.

  7. add a task count in Planner per bucket

    In Planner, show a total task count per bucket. You do this today for completed tasks, would be nice to see a task count for tasks that aren't completed. Today, we have to manually count the number of tasks in each bucket.

  8. Teams Sign-in page can go blank if there is an issue with Internet Explorer and took me a while to fix, however when you close Teams you get

    Teams Sign-in page can go blank if there is an issue with Internet Explorer and took me a while to fix, however when you close Teams you get an alternative sign-in page that always works. This alternative sign-in page doesn't show if you are trying to register your office 365 product however, and I would suggest this is implemented because when I had this issue I couldn't register some of my business's office 365 products until I finally found a long workaround of uninstalling IE11 and reinstalling IE10. Details of the issue and solution here: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/msofficeaccount-msowin10-mso_o365b/blank-white-login-screen-for-any-microsoft-login/94c2d6e8-9570-47eb-aeff-a1eba96521f7?tm=1575028086955&rtAction=1576142573347&page=2 many others…

  9. Send a notification when an inbox rule is created. Helps prevent fraud and abuse

    Create an automated message when an inbox rule is created. This would address adverse situation when someone who steals password sets up rules to prevent user from seeing certain emails. Our organization has been affected by this practice a couple of times and there is no easy way to find out about it.

  11. Managing contacts added to the contact group (distribution list) in the shared mailbox in Outlook on the web

    Could you enable a user to edit contacts added to the contact group created by other users in Outlook client and Outlook on the web? Also, it would be great if it is possible that a user can manage contacts added to the contact group which he and/or another user has created in Outlook on the web, because at this moment, Outlook on the web doesn’t allow him to manage those contacts including editing, creating and/or deleting the group.

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

  14. Adding an existing Office Group to a new MS Team issue

    When a new MS Team is created and you add that team to an existing Office Group. I would expect to see all the files from the Group in the New team, rather that the Team creating a General folder. and all you see in Team files is everything under the General folder and nothing above that level. surely whole point of adding an existing Group to a team is to be able to see all files from within the Team.
    Its a shame you have to go to "Open in sharepoint" and then go up a level above the…

  16. Enable Buildout of a Public Website within 90 days.

    We recently started a business and registered the domain through Office 365 due to its supposed "business friendly" nature. However, when trying to launch a public facing website, we were informed by customer support that this cannot happen within 90 days of purchase -- until the domain can be effectively transferred. Now our company is forced to either pay for another domain at a separate, different domain address than desired, or to forgo public web presence for 90 days until eligible for transfer under Microsoft rules. Does this seem user-friendly for young companies? Certainly not. Microsoft should enable the build…

  17. Allow customization of the message sent on an encrypted email (company branding)

    Would like to make the message that a client gets when we encrypt an email not look so 'spammy' or 'phishy' by customizing the verbiage and putting our company logo.
