  1. Mobile Apps to support multiple MAM policies

    We are intending to use the Microsoft Mobile Apps – especially Outlook – as a successor of VMware AirWatch in our Bring-Your-Own-Device Strategy.
    One of the target groups for BYOD are external consultants.

    Typically this type of user/persona already has mobile phones provided by their employer.
    They may be using Office 365 (provided by their employer) and the Mobile Apps are secured via InTune App protection policies.

    If we bring these two scenarios together (Allianz providing BYOD-services TO external consulting) we obviously have two sources/tenants trying to push different configurations of InTune App protection policies to one device/app.

    Our tests…

  3. Allow Flow to pick up SharePoint groups instead of using dynamic variables

    We have created a flow because in the classic view of a doc lib when you use "send a email to everyone" it is limited to 30 persons. The workaround was to use Flow and declare the groups in our SharePoint sites, by using dynamic expressions! So if you are not a developer but an end user, you cannot create a flow with your desired SharePoint groups. This must be easier to do.

  4. Too long Mail address from Teams

    Mail address from Teams is too long so that sometime Mail address can't display correctly. Mail address from Teams displays below.

    Teams xxxxxxxxxxxxx noreply@email.teams.microsoft.com

    Some user doesn't need part of xxxxxxxxxxxxx. Please add function to remove part of xxxxxxxxxxxxx in Teams.

  5. Add option in Onedrive sync settings to allow new files and folder to automatically sync

    Currently if you choose folder and files to sync, new files and folders automatically do not sync, you have to go and turn them on (check box) which is really a pain in the butt.

  6. Add a firewall like component to block “defined” access from trying to login with a tenant’s user accounts so hackers can't lockout accnts.

    The issue is even if you create conditional access it doesn’t block that accounts get locked out from hackers because conditional access only occurs after the login.

  8. Better bounce back messages for oversized attachments

    When attaching files to email over the allowed limit of 35mb, an NDR/error message is only generated if a single oversized file is attached. When multiple files totaling over the limit are sent, no NDR nor error message is created. The status of the message is unknown to the sender. it seems that the message will send anyway, including some attachments but not include attachments that go over the limit

  9. When clChanging installed product key automatically upon closing one account and opening a new account

    Closing one account with Office 365 and starting a new one caused a problem with product keys in my new account. The software retained the expired product key and when the grace period ended, I had to call support to determine the best way to associate my new account with my new product key. This should be done without intervention by admins when an new account is opened. Add in a script to strip the old product key and associate the new account with the valid use license.

  10. Replacments

    It should be possible to do a Find and Replace on an existing document in Publisher to replace e.g. 1st with 1st (where the last "st" is in superscript)

  11. disable need for wifi connection when using office - if there is no wifi or comms infrastructure how are you supposed to use the application

    Allow use of application when there is no connection to wifi and seek license rights when wifi connection returns. Otherwise cannot use OFFICE 365 when travelling

  12. Allow non-Azure AD Premium accounts to unblock accounts flagged with a fraud alert

    Without a subscription to an Azure AD Premium, a user can issue a fraud alert on their O365 account with multifactor and block their account. The only way to have the account unblocked is via raising a ticket with support or subscribing to Azure AD Premium Plan 2 or higher. If the user is able to block their account, then an admin should be able to easily unblock it immediately.

  13. Multiple Tenant signin log to the same Azure AD

    While we invite user from the other Azure Tenant A.com to our current Azure Tenant B.com. In the Azure AD sign-in log of A.com, there are no way to distinguish which Tenant is the user from. Strongly recommend you can consider this audit issue in the first priority. thanks.

  14. I find that the Read Aloud feature in Word helps me to edit my copy. I just wish it would work better. Because now - it doesn't.

    The Read Aloud feature in Word is a great idea. It helps me to edit my copy. It would be nice if it had more voices to choose from and more importantly I just wish it would work . Because now - it doesn't work at all.

  15. AAD does not allow + sign for Forgot Password

    Azure Active Directory account creation accepts '+' signs in email addresses (bob+jane@gmail.com) - that's good. However it does not accept them in the forgot password functionality. So, if you have a + sign in your address and forget your password, you're out of luck. Can you make the forgot password functionality work the same as account creation?

  16. Create a 'currently logged in user' connector for SharePoint in Power Automate (flow)

    On-prem workflows and server side code assumes the identity of the user that triggers it unless permissions are specifically elevated. Can this be done via a special SharePoint connector in Power Automate? This would stop flows breaking if the flow originator leaves the organisation and therefore stops us having to create a potentially insecure proxy account to run everything.

  18. I would like to have a function to arrange calendar menus (left pane in the calendar) to show multiple calendar groups hierarchically on Out

    I would like to have a function to arrange calendar menus (left pane in the calendar) to show multiple calendar groups hierarchically on Outlook client. It would be really convenient if users can add some calendar groups to one calendar group as subgroups to categorize hierarchically when organizing calendar items. It is not really easy to locate each group as those calendar groups are listed in the calendar alongside.

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

  19. get rid off the automatic launch of onedrive app when viewing a library in Sharepoint app and Onedrive on mobile devives

    On a mobile device (Android for example), when you access to a library, when you choose a library, onedrive app is automatically launched. You can then see your files within onedrice but you don't have any access to your predefined sharepoint views (filters that give direct access to relevant documents). So for a nomade user, it is useless. This behaviour has been confirmed by the Microsoft Support as a normal behaviour;

    The only thing to be done is to uninstall onedrive on all the smartphones of the companiy.
