  1. Share Phone Numbers other info from Admin to Outlook

    When I create a new user, I also put more info in the contact window as phone number fix and mobile, position etc...

    I would like to have these informations shared in my organisation as shared contact. including in mobile parameters.

    When the phone change, i change once, and info will be shared in my contact, then they can use email & phone info to call person directly.

    The current solution proposed by microsoft support is to create a specific shared contact list deconnected to the original list.

    Hope thousands of people want to minimize their time in managing contacts...

    ules limit is ridiculously low and not user friendly. Fix it! Honestly Outlook 365 is a disaster! typical microsoft to try it out on customers. The only system software that cannot load emails on iphones. I have wasted many hours helping train your people that have no idea what they are doing. The ones that do don't address the many limitations of this faulty disaster. If they did it would take all night. No software with any host or online has so many problems. My recommendation to anyone with a business is to Run Forest Run. This system is the…

  11. O365 online apps editor needs improvement

    The Office 365 online apps were designed for only basic editing. For most functionality, you have to use the desktop app, which removes the collaborative editing capability. Users feel they have to "jump back and forth" between the two constantly.

    In the classic view "accept message from: only senders in the following list" is checked.
    In the New exchange admin center, on that same mailbox, this option is set to "all senders".

  13. Company Wide Holiday Calendar

    Be able to create a company wide calendar for use by all staff like a resource mailbox. This could be managed by a delegate or be open to all (like a Room).
    This would be available in the Outlook calendar folder list be any staff by default.
    Having a shared mailbox for all staff with the management of permissions is a pain to administrate.

  14. Total Inbound and Outbound Messages, for the Org, via PowerShell or Graph API

    I can visit the Admin Portal > Reports > Usage and select Exchange > Email Activity to see a total of Sent and Received messages per day. I can also visit the Security and Compliance Center > Mail flow > Dashboard and see a report with a total of Inbound and Outbound messages for 7 days.

    Unfortunately, this data is not available through PowerShell nor the Graph API. I've opened an O365 Support ticket to be told that this information simply cannot be retrieved with PowerShell nor the Graph API.

    Please make this information available, so that reports can be…

  15. Text that appears for Exchange Online Archiving

    The new text that is appearing for example on the Portal for an E-1 license or Exchange Online Plan-1 license
    "Exchange Online Archiving for Exchange Online can't be used without Office 365 Enterprise E1"
    Should be removed & should only have Text under "Exchange Online Archiving for Exchange Online" license. For example, as EOA is available for E-1 & Exchange Online Plan-1 by default

    get a security warning when a global administrator mailbox is getting changed. especially when someone tries to do some R&D or accidentally clicks on CONVERT TO SHARED MAILBOX. which does not have username password, and it is an issue when some tenants have only single global admin.

  19. Give me the choice whether to automount an Exchange account when I give someone full access to another's account

    When I give full permissions to a user to someone else's user account, automounting that account should not happen by default, opening in Outlook, causing it to sync. I should need to either check or uncheck a box on that same permissions screen for automounting. Forcing me into powershell for something so simple is a waste of time/energy, and allows for greater chance of error.
