  1. 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.

  2. enable ipv6 on all mx-records by default, today customerdomain.mail.protection.outlook.com is missing AAAA-record.

    Office 365 can only receive emails over IPv4, since there is no AAAA-record in customerdomain.mail.protection.outlook.com. Please enable this, we need to be ipv6 compliant.

    *** No IPv6 address (AAAA) records available for customerdomain.mail.protection.outlook.com

  4. 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…

  5. Change the ribbon icons back to how they were!

    The new ribbon icons are terrible!

    They are very low contrast and I'm having trouble working out which is which!

    There's very little colour and it's really hard to differentiate between similar icons. I have 'set print area' and 'preview and print' next to each other and there's no difference aside from a thin blue line on set print area.

    Please provide the option to change back to the previous icons or the ability to select from high contrast or low contrast.

  6. 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.

  7. Improve Bookings Multi-language Support

    In Canada, we need users to be able to toggle their language preference on the bookings page. Right now, I can create two separate bookings calendars/pages but it's messy.

    Thanks!

  9. VBA capability to automate Microsoft edge

    Currently there's no solution to automate tasks in Microsoft edge with VBA. Having a "reference" option within VBA to automate Microsoft edge would be well received. (No selenium driver does not work).

  11. printing directly from SharePoint online / Please add a print button to the ribbon

    We cannot PRINT pictures directly from SharePoint Online.
    The only option is to download and save the file and then open and print it. This takes to much effort to print a picture.

    We would like to print directly from SharePoint.

    Please add a print button to the ribbon containing sharing/download/remove/copy.?

  12. Sharepoint Document Retention Based on "Last Viewed" instead of "Last Modified" Date

    We'd like to be able to set Sharepoint Online document retention policies based on date a document was last viewed, as opposed to date last modified.

  13. Add Yammer Enterprise to the O365 Enterprise E3 Developer Licence

    When working with clients who do not want to give developers access to a production Yammer tenant we need to be able to test yammer integration with a Yammer enterprise tenant. I believe that it should be part of the O365 Enterprise E3 Developer Licence.

  14. 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.

  15. 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?

  16. Moving Office windows lag when using a gaming mouse with high polling rate like 1000

    Gaming mice have a high polling rate like 1000. Office 2016 synchronises the mouse events like move, and scroll to the display refresh rate. Having 1000 events per second when the display can only do 60 causes the input buffers to overflow an as a result moving or scrolling within office applications lags and causes them to become unresponsive. Affected programs: Word, Excel, Powerpoint, etc.

  17. OneDrive for Business restore full recycle bin functionality

    At the moment one could restore only up to 200 items at once and it is real pain to restore ODfB fully if user has deleted all files and folders for example. And there is no PowerShell cmdlet to restore OneDrive files too, at the moment one can use PowerShell only to restore SharePoint Online sites from recycler.

  18. SharePoint Online Site Usage - allow to increase the number of day setting from 7, to 30 or 90 for 'Most unique viewers' and 'Most viewed'

    When in the SharePoint Online Site Usage page the charts allow the user to see the data displayed based on 7, 30, or 90 days based on what the user chooses.

    I suggest we allow this same number of day selection for the listed documents for 'Most unique viewers' and 'Most viewed'. That way we can see how the documents are trending for more than just 7 days.

  20. Create a personal carbon footprint calculator of Office365 services

    Environmental footprint is an important topic, and awareness about the topic is rising at personal level, but also enterprise level.
    IT represents about 4% of global carbon footprint, and IT users don't know what is their digital carbon footprint.
    Idea would to include in MyAnalytics, a carbon footprint calculator so that each user could see its own carbon footprint
