  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…

        • enable office 365 MFA by default for all new users

          Feature Request: Structural Integrity Associates is an office365 E3 tenant that has recently deployed Multi Factor Authentication MFA too all users in our organization. We are looking for a way to set the default MFA settings to "enabled" for all new users. It would also be nice to configure a number as default to get new users up and running before they have a company cell phone. For example, input a company main office phone number or issupoprt phone to allow MFA before they get a company cell phone.

            • 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.

              • 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.

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

                  • Unified inbox for outlook on Windows 10! ❤

                    Outlook 365 for Windows needs a unified Inbox similar to ALL other Outlook apps. For those of us with multiple email accounts. It would be very convenient to have all emails arrive in one inbox instead of clicking the whole time through all Inboxes, which consumes a lot of time.

                      • Need a Teams user right to control sideloading of apps

                        Currently, once sideloading is enabled in Teams admin, ALL team owners can sideload apps to their team.

                        Our IT team would like to, I think correctly, restrict access to who can sideload apps for production and test purposes on a per-user and per-team basis.

                        For example, I am currently developing a bot but our admin has no way to allow ONLY approved users to test their app in Teams.

                        Please provide enabling external apps as an individual user right in addition to the Teams level setting.

                        Thanks.

                        • Allow updating of Office 365 with WSUS without SCCM

                          It's simple. Admins use WSUS to keep Microsoft products up to date. Give us the ability to update Office 365 without having SCCM. This just makes logical sense for people in the real world to update their Microsoft products. Those who don't have SCCM because of cost use WSUS. Microsoft is making our jobs more difficult every day it seems lately.

                              • Hide Dynamics 365 tile without also disabling Flow

                                Many enterprises do not necessarily use Dynamics 365. There are many other CRM applications out there in use, namely such SaaS applications as Salesforce and NetSuite. But those same enterprises may need to use Flow to move other data. So therefore, there should not be the requirement that these two are inextricably connected.

                                • 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.

In addition to this, we would love to set them based on their domain.

                                    • 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.

                                      • 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.

                                        • Outlook HTML Previewer

                                          Outlook used to be able to preview HTML files when they are attached to emails (single click the attachment). This ability has now been removed as of the most recent O365 version (Monthly Channel). This feature should be added be or re-enabled.
