  1. Enhancement on Calendar to accomodate Evening/Night Work Hours which starts at first day and ends on next day as per clock hours.

    Problem statement
    Currently for instance if the Work hours is updated for Start Time as 05:30 PM and the End time is updated as 02:30 AM, an error pops up : The end date you entered occurs before the start date

    Possible solution
    1) There should be no restriction at all for what is being updated in Start/End Time. OR
    2) Split the Work Hours in such a way that End Time ends at 11.59:59 and the next day Start time starts at 12:00:00.

  2. Add the dociddlc to the audit logs for SharePoint Online

    SharePoint provide document links int he format dociddlc. After the document is archived to another site collection this link no longer works and users are unable to find document.
    If the dociddlc is added to the audit logs this will help in visibility of that document.

  3. Office Lens perde os arquivos em PDF, OneNote e OneDrive

    Ao usar o Lens ele escaneia a imagem e na hora de salvar, escolho PDF, OneNote e OneDrive, três cópias diferentes, para ter o registro do documento. No "Meus Arquivos" no Lens, em 50% dos casos aparece a mensagem "Carregando", depois de um tempo (horas, dias...), eu entro e no lugar do arquivo aparece a mensagem: "Falha no carregamento, salve o arquivo no seu celular". (Esse novo salvamento é como imagem, justamente o que eu não preciso, pois não posso enviar arquivos nesse formato). Os salvamentos que apresentam falha, todos são para sincronização com o OneDrive, nos três formatos citados,…

  4. Reassigning Exchange Online license at times provisions a new mailbox

    We are recently seeing cases where in if the administrators reassigns the Exchange Online license it provisions a new mailbox. To get access to the old data customers have to open a request with support who then have to follow the standard procedure and at times have to engage engineering to recover the old mailbox content. It will be better if the old mailbox is put in a soft deleted state or if customers can get access to such mailboxes in its removed state. This will enable customers to recover data from such mailboxes following the standard recovery procedure. Also…

  8. voice of the customer - please listen or we are moving to gmail

    Does anyone require trouble shooting for MS. I can now do it better than their own techs. ticket number 7586800, 7585107, 7587813, 7550920,7400793 - 4 disconnected because they could not address the issue. 2 stayed the course and the problem is still not resolved. I am now an expert on outlook installations. It is a joke

  9. Buying Licenses thru a vendor and adding it to a tenant is very confusing and not very straight forward. It needs to be simpler

    Send the verification of licenses to the global user account so they can apply it withing the portal. Instead of logging into a account outside of the tenant to get the information to apply it to the tenant. Too many hoops to jump thru.

  11. Prevent "Recent Items" from being stored and displayed through all seats under the same user.

    There is currently no option to disable "Recent Items" from being stored and displayed when inserting a link on any Office 365 application. That is really inconvenient when you have more than one seat for a given user as any user logged in with the same credentials has access to this list of items even if they are not the owners.
    This goes against privacy to our users so we are requesting for an admin feature to disable Recent Items from being stored and/or displayed.

    Thanks.

  12. Microsoft Stream On A 'microsoft.com' Subdomain

    As at Nov 2019, the Microsoft Stream (enterprise video platform) application is served from web.microsoftstream.com. This is inconsistent with most other Microsoft enterprise applications such as outlook.microsoft.com, teams.microsoft.com etc

    My users are used to finding Office 365 services intuitively - they only have to remember 'teams' when they want to access Microsoft Teams, for example. Yes, they could go to portal.office.com but, trust me, they don't, nor do they bookmark web.microsoftstream.com. Make it easy for them to access valuable Microsoft services!

    I suggest that you move web.microsoftstream.com to stream.microsoft.com.

    You're currently only using stream.microsoft.com to springboard to products.office.com so it…

  13. Respond to feedback

    Microsoft has responded to only a handful of the currently active suggestions. There are a number of requests that have existed for years and garnered thousands of votes, but have yet to receive any comment or action from Microsoft. Some of the ignored suggestions seem like no-brainers from a roadmap strategy standpoint, which makes Microsoft's radio silence all the more frustrating. If users are going to put in the time and effort to create, contribute to, and support UserVoice suggestions, Microsoft should put in more of an effort to respond to their community.

  14. The newest update to Office 16.14.1 on Mac Issue

    The newest update to Office 16.14.1 on Mac resulted in blurry printouts from PowerPoint. Rolling back to 16.3.1 fixed the issue. The new update needs a FIX.

  15. Set default user work hours when creating the user

    I want to set users’ work hour at the same time when creating a new user, instead of setting work hour after creating the user.

  18. Teams

    Utilisant Teams dans un cadre scolaire pour donner des cours en synchrone, il serait avantageux d'avoir par défaut le "moi uniquement" pour qui peut présenter et il faudrait qu'une fois le "moi uniquement" par défaut, que l'unique présenteur puisse gérer les micros des élèves (pour ne pas que les élèves ouvrent leur micro à n'importe quel moment). Actuellement, il faut retourner dans les paramètres de la rencontre pour ensuite sélectionner le "moi uniquement" à chaque fois que nous créons une rencontre. Les élèves ouvrent le micro à n'importe quel moment ce qui peut être embêtant pour l'enseignant. Est-ce possible de…

  19. Please add the help desk user right to Intune.

    The settings can not be changed on intune, and the user wants to check the status of the device, and only to synchronize the lost mode or application.

  20. Add the information that is displayed when you click Add room

    It would be really useful that if the meeting request form in Outlook on the web could show the availability of rooms, seats and locations when clicking Add room. Currently, when I try to add a room for a meeting, it only shows that those rooms are free to use or not. I will be able to choose the appropriate room if I can check those information.

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