  1. Fix Word Online Edit Mode so the --> Arrow Renders Properly

    In desktop Word, you can create a custom right-arrow by entering two dashes and the greater than sign (-->). Desktop Word takes those three characters and auto-corrects them to a nicer looking Wingding right arrow. If you take a Word document with a custom right-arrow and drag it into SharePoint/Teams, the custom right-arrow renders fine in Word Online view mode, but when you go into Word Online edit mode, these arrows get replaced with a [Symbol] designation. For whatever reason, Word Online edit mode cannot figure out what this custom right-arrow is supposed to be even though it renders fine…

  5. Asynchronous multi-factor authentication

    Multi-factor authentication is an ever more popular security addition to traditional password-only methods. However, the way it's implemented in O365 disrupts standards and makes it impossible to use clients like apps for Android or Thunderbird.

    A solution to this would be 'asynchronous MFA':


    • The client attempts traditional IMAP authentication (or equivalent for other protocols, eg, iCal, SMTP)

    • it fails a first time, but, at the same time, O365 servers send a notification to the user (eg, secondary email, SMS, dedicated app) to tell him/her that he/she must go to a given URL and provide the second factor (the usual code…

  7. scan to sharepoint online

    Scan from printer to sharepoint library, without the need of another licence! Flow... just for that.
    That's a requirement for a few of our clients.

  8. Make the individual category permission of community site work

    As we know, we can create more categories in the community site. For certain categories, I only want most people to read instead of posting things. So I set the specific permission for those categories by editing page permission. However, the permission setting is totally useless. No matter how I set it, it won't affect the permission on that individual category at all. If it is not working, why do you still show it to me and let me modify it.

    My suggestion is you either make it work or disable it.

    Thank you.

  9. Office for Mac 2016+ (Word, Excel, Powerpoint) Recent Docs issue

    Hello, in Office for Mac 2011 we used to be able to set the recent docs displayed to "0" effectively disabling tracking of recently opened documents. In the 2016 and above versions, this feature does not appear. I have seen in online forums that this is a highly requested feature. My chat representative also told me he gets people asking about this. I myself have relied on this feature as I work with confidential documents and I must care for the privacy of clients and other people. Now that I am using Office for Mac 2016 I desperately need this…

  10. improve your search engin for adresses

    my idea is very simple and it´s increadable that it doesn´t work since decades:
    I don´t know any email program (just outlook!) where it´s not possible to find email adresses in my own contact list. I have to know exactly how it starts, otherwise: no chance! This is very ridiculous. And I have to pay for. Why?

  11. "Only available online" option in One Drive for Windows 8

    Currently, while using windows 8, when I save the files on one drive, it also starts occupying space on my hard disk. To save the hard disk space, there is an option in windows 10, to make the files available only online. I would suggest that this option should also be available to users of windows 8.

  12. Display all Outlook Contact Card fields by default

    In Outlook 2010, if you selected a contact in an email it would display the contact card and all fields. Now in Office 365 you only get a select few fields and have to click on more to expand the card and view all fields

  17. New category for disabled users

    It would be nice to have disabled users in their own catagory in the admin portal, and not keep having them listed under "Active users"
    When disabled users are listed under disabled to have them automatically removed from the global address book and not have them show up in Teams. To continue without these changes is adding confusion to the organization.

  18. have a "send attachment" option in the dropdown menu on the attachment in the web version of outlook.

    have a "send attachment" option in the dropdown menu on the attachment in the web version of outlook.

    I would like to be able to send an attachment to someone else, but not have it forward the whole email chain. Just attach the file to a new email. This could be a good option on the drop-down for each attachment.
