  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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?

  4. 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.

  5. Make notifications of changes to Calendar permissions OPTIONAL (Outlook for Windows)

    Currently, if you demote or change the permission level of another user into your calendar (Calendar / Share Calendar / Permissions) that user receives a very annoying message that suggests you don't trust him/her anymore: "XXXX has removed the sharing permissions for an Outlook calendar previously shared with you.".

    Each user should be able to enable/disable all notifications within the same "permissions" tab.

  6. Unable to remove default domain email address added to shared mailbox / user mailbox as alias / Unable to delete email alias

    Hi
    some of the reasons microsoft doesn't allows us to remove the alias email address with the default domain.

    i created a shared mailbox called finance@secondarydomain.com. when i created that it automatically created an email alias as finance@primarydomain.com by default. Now i tried to create an additional shared mailbox finance@primarydomain.com but cannot do so as the address is used by finance@secondarydomain.com.

    When i try to delete the alias from the first mailbox the settings seems to be saved without any error message, but when i reopen the dialog box the alias address still there. when i try to…

  7. 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.

  10. sync profile pictures to office 365 applications

    Profile pictures currently only sync for Outlook and Skype for Business. I would like them to sync to Excel, Word, etc. without hooking up an ADFS server.

  12. Customize the message of the NDR email notifications

    We suggest you be able to customize the entire NDR notification message, remove headers and other content. We want to use a simpler email notification and send only a personalized message, easier and more useful for the user.

  13. Provide release date for Microsoft To-Do for GCC Customers

    Microsoft has yet to release an ETA for the Microsoft To-Do app for GCC licensed customers. It would be greatly appreciated if they did because it's an extremely useful tool that I wish we could use in our municipality.

  14. Group Calendar Category Colors

    In Office 365 Groups, the calendar category colors do not seem to be maintained when different users view the group calendar. We have a department that would like to use categories to color code appointments on a group calendar so they can easily tell what each appoint is related to. The colors are not maintained when different users look at the calendar in OWA or the Outlook client.

  15. Publisher: Allow comments and track changes

    Publisher should support comments and track changes like Word. This would be especially helpful when a Publisher documents needs to be reviewed. I currently have to create a PDF of the document and then use the comment feature in Acrobat to allow my management to review and comment electronically.

  16. Add Working Elsewhere into Show As box in Outlook for Mac for all versions

    I would like you to add Working Elsewhere into Show As box in Outlook for Mac in all versions.
    Currently, when a user is scheduling an appointment, Show As options are different depending on each version of Outlook for Mac and the Working Elsewhere status is not available in all versions.

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

  17. Admin to use O365 PowerShell with Two Factor

    Hi Team,

    Please can you add an option to the O365 PowerShell so that Admin users with two factor can use this tool. We MUST maintain security of our environment with Two Factor, however we do need to be able to use the Powershell tool at times. Therefore could you somehow let us use the PowerShell tool with an App Key.

  18. Microsoft Stream - Member Download Permissions

    I would like to have an additional permission, similar to regular group members, that also allows for original file downloads. For example, I would like to assign members the ability to view and download a video, but not delete content or create/delete channels.

  20. Allow administrators to set a default time zone for new and migrated exchange users.

    Same as title, please allow for domain admins to set the default time zone for Exchange Online users. Many of our new and migrated users are having issues when logging in after an account migration or creation because they may "login" for the first time through an application such as Apple Mail. MS Mail or MS Outlook, which doesn't display the set time zone prompt. This also causes confusion when migrating a user and receiving an error or success message from 3 hours in the future.
