  1. Allow the admin to pin custom tiles to the app launcher for all users in the tenant

    With the newly released update it is now easy for an admin to add a custom tile to the My Apps page. However, as an admin you still can't add this custom tile to the app launcher for any user except yourself.

    For several companies it would be nice if you gave the admin the ability to add tiles directly to the app launcher for all users. For example when you want to link to the time management tool, public website etc.

    • Outlook tasks mobile

      I would like to be able to access the Tasks function of Office 365 either through a dedicated App on my Android Mobile, or through the mobile web portal. Right now, clicking on the Tasks icon in the mobile portal brings up Outlook without access to the Tasks.

      • Allow Tenant Admins to Control New Features being Enabled/Disabled by Default

        Tenant administrators should have the ability to specify whether or not new features such as Teams, Sway, etc. are enabled by default within their tenants. Just like there's the ability to set a tenant to receive First Release, Admins should be able to specify how changes are introduced to their environment. It's great that there are Powershell commands to turn features on/off but it would be much easier to either set these new features to be off by default, or enable Admins to enable when organizations are ready to absorb those changes. Functionality like Teams is absolutely fantastic, but without…

        • Ability for global administrator to remove app from app launcher for all users

          Ability for app to be globally removed from the app launcher - as opposed to telling 50,000+ to unpin it themselves.

            • outlook web app should feature a delayed delivery option on email

              Outlook email APP in windows 365 should have a delayed delivery option so we can send emails out at a time we desire. Old outlook had it so the web APP should also have this feature. Otherwise it is a step backwards.

              • Add group targeting to the custom tiles for O365

                I would like to see the custom tiles for O365 with group targetting. I work at a school currently and they would love to add tiles for students and some other tiles for employees.

                • Change landing page for login

                  Allow the portal log-in landing page to be changed for the entire organization as the administrator. For example, instead of being directed to Outlook, the user is directed to the share point site. I realize users can do this for themselves, but I'd like the ability to do it for them as the administrator.

                  • Add categories or grouping to the My Apps-page

                    Custom Tiles are coming to Office 365. That's awesome. But if a company adds a lot of tiles it could get messy. I think it's a good idea to add categories. For instance Microsoft/Office/Office 365 for the standard Microsoft tiles. I think it could be easily implemented to add a field called "category" to the add custom tile form. Then it's much clearer for the end user.

                      • Allow custom tiles to be added to the o365 portal

                        Allow custom tiles to be added to the o365 portal; that is the main page rather than just My Apps or the Apps Launcher.

                          Allow the portal log-in landing page to be changed for the entire organization or selected users as the administrator. For example, instead of being directed to Outlook, the user is directed to the share point site or Video Channel. I realize users can do this for themselves, but I'd like the ability to do it for them as the administrator and admin can give access weather the users can or cannot change the own respective landing page.

                          • Full office for Mac

                            I really dislike windows! Sorry Microsoft I'm not a fan, Apple get my vote for stability and security but Apple lose with office applications. Microsoft make an amazing office package! Why can't you bring the full suite over? Include Publisher and Access over! I know so many people that use other software that would switch to Office for Mac if only you have us Apple users a full package including the latter.

                              • Custom tiles: Allow the admin to choose icons from the Office UI Fabric icons

                                The Office UI Fabric contains a set of nice (vectorized) icons, ref. https://dev.office.com/fabric#/styles/icons

                                As an administrator that is adding a custom tile to the Office 365 App Launcher, I want to choose an icon from the Office UI Fabric list of icons instead of referring to a raster image.

                                  • Skype not allowing office 365 email address

                                    Normal Skype Application no longer allows business users to use their Office365 email address to create an account making Skype now unusable for office365 customers. Their alternative application, Link, is NO alternative to Skype. Microsoft made this change in September 2016 and I ASK TO PLEASE RETURN THIS FEATURE TO OFFICE365 USERS and ADMINS!!!!! Cant believe this.

                                    • Allow custom tiles without the need for OWA to be set up for either admin or users

                                      At this point creating a custom tile for Admin and adding custom tiles for Users requires OWA to be set up. In this case, a user or tenant without Exchange has no way of using this feature. Please revise this so Custom tiles can be used for tenants without Exchange.

                                      • Allow Two Way Synchronization of Calendar between Microsoft Booking and Exchange

                                        Microsoft Booking currently has 1 way synchronization of appointments to outlook. It would be beneficial for two way synchronization so that agent or user can input appointments in their calendar and for that to synchronize with Booking. Should function like other business appointment sites.

                                        • Prevent users from being able to change passwords in Outlook Web Access (OWA)

                                          There's currently a security loophole where even if users are locked from changing passwords in a desktop environment, they can still do so via the cloud when accessing Outlook Web Access. It's frustrating and not sensible to leave OWA open like this with no option to lock.
