  1. Onedrive For Business Administration

    Please allow greater administrative control over Onedrive for Business. Some things that would help are:

    Allow admins the option to prevent creation of subsites.

    Add reporting/auditing for site/subsite creation.

    Add greater control of sharing. Currently for Onedrive we can only turn off external sharing for the entire tenant. It would be nice to have greater control over sharing. For instance, some users should be able to share externally while others can only share internally. Or possibly, create sharing policies where users can be restricted to only sharing with members of certain groups that are defined by admins.

  2. Enable external users to use Approvals in Flow

    As explained by Microsoft Office365 Support, the template Approvals in Flow does not allow external users to interact with the full process. An external user can access a SharePoint site (e.g. to browse an item list) but he/she cannot press the button Approve/Reject in the email created by the Approval process in Flow. This restriction "by design" is negative for companies like ours where we handle approvals of documents by colleagues who work for different subsidiaries (=every subsidiary a different Office365 tenant) and therefore it is impossible to manage flow inside such organization.

  4. Make the Content Search WebPart (CSWP) available to all plans

    Since the CSWP offers a caching mecanism that increase the performance of search results, I think it should be available to all plans and not only to E3 plans. We can achieve mostly the same results using the "Search result webpart" but this one has no caching. Making the CSWP available to all plans is a win-win for MS and customers as it lowers the server usage (through Caching) and it allows more functionnality to customers.

  5. Add a switch to the Enable-RemoteMailbox command on Hybrid servers for Remote Shared Mailboxes

    Customers with Hybrid server can link the on-prem AD users and rooms to their matching Office 365 mailboxes using the Enable-RemoteMailbox shell command. There is currently no switch to do the same with Shared Mailboxes. Please add a -Shared switch so that this same process can be used to link the remote shared mailboxes.

  6. Azure AD Groups with more than 50,000 Users

    Hello O365 Team

    Is it possible to increase the Azure AD group membership limits to more than 50,000 Users. We have scenarios were we would like to have groups with well over 100,000. For example could the limit be increased to support 500,000 to 1,000,000.

    We opened a case with MS Support and they mentioned the following:

    Unfortunately there is no way we can currently add more than 50k users to a group and as informed Nesting is the only available workaround. We at Microsoft are not aware of any Powershell scripts available to increase the limit as we do…

  7. Microsoft teams to support the guest inviter role of Azure AD.

    I need to limit who can invite guest users to Microsoft Teams.
    But currently, Teams doesn't support the guest inviter role.
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/teams-dependencies
    I hope to Teams support the guest inviter role of Azure AD at ASAP.

  8. Remove/extend path length limitation for OneDrive for Business

    There is an annoying limitation of path length on OneDrive for Business (250 character). Even when we are using the same OneDrive app for synchronizing to private OneDrive and Business OneDrive the limitations is only present on OneDrive for Business.

  9. Camera uploads on business account

    We have 5 business accounts and the only thing stopping us from getting rid of Dropbox and only using Microsoft OneDrive for our cloud storage is that we do not have camera uploads function for business. We use our business phones to take pictures of our inventory on a daily basis and need the photos uploaded to the cloud so we can email to customers. Please enable camera uploads for business accounts. Thank you.

  10. Azure AD - Custom Admin Roles

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory/active-directory-assign-admin-roles-azure-portal

    Azure AD provides a list of predefined Admin Roles, but what would be nice is the ability to create custom roles in Azure AD (as well as B2C) with option to select which attributes have read and edit rights to.

    This would then allow us to provide RBAC which meet business requirements rather than having to provide too much access.

    Thanks.

  11. Improve Stream Performance - picture blurry first 6-18 seconds of video

    When we post videos to Stream, when clicked to play from Stream or if they are embedded in SharePoint, the first 6-18 seconds of the video is blurry and then the picture sharpens. Microsoft Support says that this is a known issue and the Stream team is aware of it. Please fix!
    Notes on the issue: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Microsoft-Stream-Forum/Video-Playback-Blurry-first-half-of-video/td-p/79251

  12. Have App Launcher open apps in New Tab as default, or as an option, for all of my users.

    Is there a way to make the default action for the App Launcher (waffle) open the app (mail, contacts, yammer or whatever) in a new tab?

    That's one of the biggest complaints I hear from my users, that when they click to go somewhere else they lose their spot.

    Yes, I know you can right-click and select to open in new tab. Try and keep telling 500+ people that....

  13. Allow Partners to convert users to shared mailboxes

    Currently, only Global Administrators can convert a user account to a shared mailbox. This makes it difficult for Partners with admin rights to do what they need to do in a timely manner.
    I recommend allowing global permissions for Partners to be able to make these changes, as it seems like a massive oversight.

  14. Microsoft Forms - Limit number of choices in multiple choice question

    In Microsoft Forms currently it is possible to have multiple choice questions where only one choice or many choices is permitted. I would like to see an option where we can have specified number of choices allowed, say 2, 3 or 4.

  16. Additional archive storage space search issue (auto-expanding archive):

    We recently learnt that data moved to additional archive storage can only be searched by going to the folder itself. We want to know if it is the intended long-term solution for users. We feel that having to search in multiple locations would be difficult for users.
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/office365/securitycompliance/unlimited-archiving

    You can search for items that were moved to an additional storage area only by searching the folder itself. This means you have to select the archive folder in the folder list to select the Current Folder option as the search scope. Similarly, if a folder in an auto-expanded storage area…

  18. Release a solution for synchronizing the SharePoint Online Team Site's document library with NAS devices

    I would like to see a release of the ability to synch the sharepoint document library of a team site with a NAS device such as a Synology NAS. Currently Synology has an application called "Cloud Sync" but this only works for OneDrive and not SharePoint. Being able to synch the document library with a NAS will provide seemless collaboration for both users on-premis as well as those working remotely, accross several branches worldwide.

  19. Microsoft Teams Channel Conversation order. Sort Latest on Top? LIFO

    Nice product but does it not make sense to see the latest message on top? We have a channel that will be used for over a year and have 1000s of messages. We have to sort to bottom to find out the latest status? Same issue with Onenote files. No LIFO Sort option?

  20. Develop a mobile app for Microsoft Forms

    Create mobile app for Microsoft Forms so users who have MFA can participate in surveys on their iPad / iPhone / smart phones / tablets. App would be managed by InTune for authentication. More and more people are using tablets / phones in addition to their computers and would create additional uses for Forms.
