    • Eliminate "top results" in Outlook searches

      I recommend eliminating top results, or at least making it an option. Most often, when I search for something, I need to see the sequence of emails and having some set off as "top results" defeats this. Additionally, I'm hard pressed to understand just what qualifies something as a "top result" when using one or two key words.

      • ABILITY TO TURN OFF AUTOSAVE

        Not everyone wants the AUTOSAVE option. Microsoft need to build in the ability to disable the autosave. I frequently use one document to create another and the autosave means that I cannot keep both versions without lots of back peddling into older versions, which I do not have the capacity to time manage

          • Password manager as Office 365 app!

            I think that some passwords management like as 1password or LastPass should be included as own Microsoft app in Office 365.

            All companies thinking about giving access for their services out of Office 365 world (don't live in bubble please :D, excel is not right way for everything) to employers.

            I think that solution from Microsoft in one "eco-system" should be the best!

            Do you think about it please?

            • Business Contact Manager For Outlook 2016

              For years I've been using Business Contact Manager with Outlook. After upgrading to Outlook to 2016 I'm told via a pop-up box AFTER launching the program for the first time that BCM is no longer compatible. Note, I'm not warned about this until AFTER the upgrade. Now I'm stuck without the ability to roll back to Outlook 2013. How about warning users BEFORE upgrading or make BCM work with the current version of Outlook?

              • Fix saving all attachments to a folder in Outlook 2016

                Since about september 2017 you cannot save "all attachments" to a folder any more. When you click "save all attachments", there is no error message, the files are just not saved. It is described here (https://answers.microsoft.com/de-de/msoffice/forum/msoffice_outlook-mso_win10-mso_2016/outlook-2016-fehler-die-anlage-kann-nicht/8be09012-37dd-4647-8b99-98cdcdbdd83d) and here (https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/de-DE/819dcbc5-b70b-4396-8eb4-85a8f6cda005/outlook-2016-fehler-die-anlage-kann-nicht-gespeichert-werden-die-datei-kann-nicht-gefunden-werden?forum=Office2016ITProDE).
                It happens on local and network drives on Windows 10 with Outlook 2016.

                • Visio for Office 365 for Mac

                  Since Office 365 is supposed to be device independent, it would be great if Visio/Visio Pro would have a mac version that is available through Office 365.

                  • rename One Drive and sharepoint URL

                    Currently when we share files through One Drive and SharePoint, a file URL forms automatically, and we cannot rename the URL.

                    I suggest that URL forms based on our custom domain instead initial domain, so it looks much more professional to those who we wish to share the files to.

                    • Dynamic distribution group based on domain

                      It seems impossible to create a DDL based on the domain name, because the recipient filter does not accept wildcard at first position in the -like condition.

                      • Sync Project Tasks with outlook

                        To whom it may concern:

                        My name is Sherry Masih and I work as a project manager for HH Builders. We are a construction development company located in New York. Last Year we migrated all our emails to Microsoft office 365 in the lieu of using the Microsoft Project Task sync option to Outlook. Since we are a construction company it is very necessary for us to be able to assign tasks to each project manager in Microsoft Project and have it directly synced with their Outlook Tasks. This feature has tremendously worked well with our organization from the time…

                        • Restore removed functionality to print from Publisher to a PDF using CMYK settings

                          In Publisher 2010, one had the option to print using a CMYK colour scheme, which is required by the commercial printer that does the printing of my newsletter. The functionality has worked well for many years. When I upgraded to Office 2013 (on an Office 365 subscription), I see that the feature was removed (i.e. one can only print in RGB format). Why was this feature removed, and can it be reinstated?

                          • Office 365 Connected Accounts Update Frequency

                            I suggest you update Office 365 to allow the user to configure the frequency at which Connected Accounts (gmail, yahoo, etc) are synch'd to Exchange/Outlook. Waiting up to an hour to receive new messages from other accounts is simply NOT acceptable. This has been a known issue for years and needs to be changed NOW.

                              • Option to save Office files to local drive first, then sync to Sharepoint / OneDrive

                                Currently, the default "Save" syncs the file to Sharepoint / OneDrive, then syncs from the cloud back to the local drive. This is a bad sequence, as, if there is a problem uploading and the file cannot be synced, the file is then completely lost. This feature can be manually overridden by going to "File," "Save As," and selecting "This PC," but must be done every time. Besides risking loss of data, by syncing to Sharepoint/OneDrive first, it locks up the file from being able to be used. If the file were simply saved locally first (which is fast), the…

                                  I have multiple exchange accounts to support different customers, including one from my employer. Two are through 365 and one is for a on premise Exchange/Lync. It would be very helpful if I could connect to these accounts simultaneously in Skype for business.

                                  • Modified dates in Site Contents should reflect content changes, not system changes

                                    Looking at the modified values in Site Contents has always been a quick way to recognize where activity has occurred - if it has. Without running any code we can quickly see if a site has been used recently. (It was easier to eyeball this in SharePoint 2007 in the vertical listing than it is in SharePoint 2013+, but that's a different UI issue - tiles aren't helpful for every use case.)

                                    For months now, a list no one has touched for over a year might say "Modified 23 hours ago". It seems as though lists and libraries are being…

                                    • Group By Content Type in SHarePoint Lists and Libraries

                                      With the Old Look and Feel you could make a little tweak with SP Designer and get a list or library to group by content type:

                                      http://www.technicaloverload.com/sharepoint-2010-2013-group-content-type/

                                      Now when I look at the same view in the New Library look and Feel it It groups by the GUID of the Content Type, not the text.

                                      • OneDrive for Business sync Document library containing metadata.

                                        Problem syncing document libraries with metadata in columns. A lot of companies are using metadata columns in document libraries for search and other reasons.
