  3. Would like a way to be alerted when a certain threshold of NDRs are received in a given period of time.

    Would like a way to be alerted when a certain threshold of NDRs are received in a given period of time. Although this is available today in the MailFlow Insights dashboard, it would be great to be able to configure an email alert to admins when the number of NDRs cross a specified threshold. The feature is already there, just need a way to alert admins.

  6. Allow App Launcher Customization to show without the need to remove "http://yourcompany.sharepoint.com" from IE Trusted Sites list

    In Office 365 app launcher help (https://support.office.com/en-US/client/results?Shownav=true&lcid=1033&ns=O365ENTUSER&version=15&omkt=en-US&ver=15&services=FORMSPLANE3%2cSTREAMO365E3%2cDeskless%2cFLOWO365P2%2cPOWERAPPSO365P2%2cTEAMS1%2cPROJECTWORKMANAGEMENT%2cSWAY%2cINTUNEO365%2cYAMMERENTERPRISE%2cRMSSENTERPRISE%2cOFFICESUBSCRIPTION%2cMCOSTANDARD%2cSHAREPOINTWAC%2cSHAREPOINTENTERPRISE%2cEXCHANGESENTERPRISE%2cPOWERVIDEOSFREE%2cPOWERFLOWSFREE%2cPOWERAPPSFREE%2cSQLISSSIM%2cBIAZUREP1%2cRMSSADHOC&HelpID=O365E_AppLTrustedSites), the article describes how to remove "http://yourcompany.sharepoint.com" from IE Trusted Sites list, in order to show the customization of Office 365 App Launcher.

    However, this would disallow Windows from mapping any SPO location as a network drive (as WebDAV \yourcompany.sharepoint.com@SSL\DavWWWRoot\xxxxxx).

    When mapping a network drive, Window prompts "The mapped network drive could not be created because the following error has occured: Access Denied. Before opening files in this location,…

  7. Highlighted Content Web Part - Allow Links in Document Type when Document Library is selected

    Document Library allows you to add New URL links to the library. Highlighted Content Web Part - when links are in the library and meet the criteria of the Filter tools, brings over the link, but the link doesn't open in a web page. Instead, you get a SAVE message.

    Allow Links to be part of the document types so they work when the source is "Document Library" and clicked on and they open to a webpage just like they do from the Document Library, or if you were to choose "from this site" as the source in the Web…

  8. Out of Office Response based on Time of day and day of the week

    We need to respond to our patients email with an message stating that "If this is an emergency please dial 911. If this is a non-life threatening situation then we will contact you during our normal office hours of 8:00 am - 5:00 pm M-F" We want this auto-response to send between the hours of 17:00-08:30 the following day and on weekends. Currently we can only set the OOF message for exact date and time. i.e. 3/20/2019 @ 17:00 and ending at 3/21/2019 @ 08:00. This is impractical to have to set EVERY day.

  9. Modify "Update Channel" Settings On-The-Fly

    Currently, if you want to change the pace at which you receive updates (ie. from deferred to current or visa versa), you have to change these setting in the admin console and then re-install office on all clients. The requirement to re-install office in order to change how you receive updates is absolutely ridiculous. Please allow the admin to change this setting centrally and have it push out to all client installs.

  12. Don't remove features from the 2016 Excel perpetual version. (IFS no longer supported)

    Removing features from the perpetual version is not right. The Microsoft Office senior tech claimed I never should have had it with 2016. It worked until this week (3/19). The IFS feature is now only on the subscription version.

  20. Request to provide us incident information timely

    If a problem related with Office 365 function would occur, we would like to check the problem status in real time, so we would like you to send an e-mail to Admin’s registered e-mail address as well as providing the information by Twitter. Doing this
    would be helpful for tenants to avoid confusion and upsets when an incident gives us an impact on the service.
