  1. Include field for 'Admin Support' person in a contact to be automatically cc'd

    As an Executive Assistant I know how imperative it is to be cc'd on all emails to my executive. It would be most beneficial to have a field under email address in a contact to include their Administrative Support person and a radio button that one could click to cc that person on all emails to the contact. That way it could be turned on/off. This feature would help tremendously because it would keep the executive and admin details together and ensure that no correspondence is missed by the assistant. ;)

  2. Allow us to whitelist senders from your sending limitations.

    In the last few months, several of our users have had their accounts blocked for sending reminders for a webinar, or price change notifications... they have been able to send these emails to 300+ recipients in the past, but are now being blocked. It would be nice if we could whitelist senders in our tenant the same way we can whitelist incoming addresses.

  4. Add a Universal inbox option to Outlook for Windows like ALL the other email apps out there for mac and others

    Outlook 365 / 2019 / 2016 etc... Why not add a universal inbox option like the ability to add this as a favorite even - one that consolidates multiple inboxes much like Outlook for mac or mail on the mac or many other top rated email apps out there? This has been a much desired feature in Outlook for Windows for a LONG time now and nothing much has changed in it not being added.. seems odd to me.

  5. Create editable organizational job function profiles with necessary software, authorizations and skills

    In a large organization: for every job function profile a certain package of needed software must be installed and authorizations must be given. In case of a job start or job change within the organization somehow HR is never prepared to provide the user with the correct software and authorizations in time.

    So the idea is to create (or implement in existing) HR software to enable creation of editable job function profiles enriched with needed software, authorizations and (personal) skills (also as editable components).

  7. Center current time in window when changing the time of an appointment

    When you change the start of end time of an appointment, the current selection is at the top of the window. This is great if you are moving the time later, but the current time should be centered in the window to make it easy to move it earlier or later.

  8. Retrieving a unique value of the user who was granted a permission when running Get-MailboxFolderPermission cmdlet

    I would like to get the user information result of the calendar authorization with unique values such as mail addresses or Names when running MailboxFolderPermission cmdlet. Currently, the cmdlet provides the information as a display name, and it is difficult to identify a specific user when viewing several same display names.

    It would be great if I could see the result as a unique value so that I could identify the user instantly.

  10. Enable Power Automate "Export To File for Power BI Reports" action in O365 environment

    I want to use the subjected action for reports in O365 capacity.

  12. Enable 365 Ribbon custom helpdesk support for multiple support desks.

    We are international company and we have multiple IT helpdesks. It would be useful if we could have a helpdesk based on user location/branch. the help button customized in 365 for internal helpdesk is very useful, just needs more features.

  14. translate the automatic messages (sharing calendar) into the user language.

    For example someone shares his calendar with me. He is French. The text come to me in French and the button to accept it is in English.

    How can I accept something if i do not know what is about?

    Because it is an automatic message it should be possible to match it to the according language for the recipient.

    It should be easy to implement and very useful!

  18. Classic sharepoint view is better then modern view. T


    1. I can search for items in a choice column in classic view using a letter on my key board. 2. in Modern list view I get the content type show up in the new item form unless I turn off management of content types. The Yes/No slider looks unprofessional and is easily missed by data entry folks. Classic view response quicker and renders better in low bandwidth situations. The list goes on and on....

  19. Add the feature to grant a permission to view a specific calendar but not to display its items in Exchange Online

    I would like you to add the feature to allow users to view a specific calendar but not to allow them to view its calendar items.

    Currently, if you set the permission level to None, ”No Reply” message is appeared. It looks like the calendar is not responding and many users get confused if there is something wrong with its network. If you can grant a permission to view a calendar without its calendar items, this sort of issue can be prevented.

  20. Explain when fraud checks are expected for legitimate messages

    In my custom domain hosted by Office 365, when I send an e-mail from the custom domain to a Google Groups list for which I am also a member of that list, I receive a copy of the sent message with the "sender failed our fraud detection checks" message.

    Following the guidance on that message, I'm able to get little additional information, so I opened a case with support. After confirming the domain settings were correct and spending hours tweaking settings in the SPF and DMARC records for the domain, Microsoft concluded that this behavior of receiving fraud alerts for…
