  1. 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.

  2. excel

    When in Excel for Mac, there should be the same feature as on Windows where if you hover over a Function in the Formula Library, it should let you see what that Function does. Instead I have to go into the details of every single one to try and differentiate. It would be much easier.

  5. Outlook email composer Attachments list scrolls inappropriately

    In the Outlook (Office 365 Pro Plus) Email composer window, attach more files than can appear in the "Attached" section in the composer window underneath the To/Cc/Bcc fields, above the Body part of the email compose window, such that the attached files list now has a vertical scrollbar.
    Use the mouse wheel to scoll the Attached section to the bottom. Click on the bottom-most attachment to select it. THE LIST OF ATTACHMENTS INSTANTLY RE-SCROLLS ALL THE WAY TO THE TOP. (This also works in reverse - the point is that the Attachment list window tends to re-scroll to the viewpoint…

  8. bing maps in general

    Microsoft is seriously behind the eight ball when it comes to anything to do with Bing.

    The excel add in is only good for 100 entries, bing master tools can't be logged into as a business 365 user

    Your maps are so far out of date (why bother ?)

    Is this ever going to be fixed ?

  11. Excel for Mac: Chart Select Data Source - Permit edit mode

    This comment is for Excel for Mac for Office365.

    When editing a cart data series (right click the data series in a chart and select "Select Data ..."), there is no way to toggle between edit mode and select mode when editing the data series fields (say, "X values" in a scatter chart).

    In normal Mac formula editing, F2 does this toggle. I understand from support that F2 toggles this on the Windows version of Excel

    Please add this consistent functionality to the Mac.

    Thanks!

  12. Disclose the new Office 365 version (build) release announcement a week earlier

    It would be great for us to have information about the up-coming Office 365 version (build) release and file sizes, or any system to let us know up-coming changes and reasons for update, because I would like to tell our end users about them in advance.

  18. Let an admin move .zip file to Junk folder on the users’ mailbox

    I would like admins to move .zip file to Junk folder on the users’ mailbox, instead of asking my users to create a rule to move their particular file to the Junk folder themselves. It would be great if we can keep the messages including .pdf, .xlsx attachments to be delivered to users’ inbox, but keep the messages with .zip. away from the inbox.
