  1. Allow end users the ability to govern the full permission of their own mailbox

    Currently an administrator must run add-mailboxpermission, however users should be able to configure giving full access to their mailbox or at the very least being able to propagate permissions down a folder structure.

  2. Change Display Settings of Add-Ins

    We don't have the ability to change the display settings (colour, font etc.) on add-ins displayed via Exchange Admin Centre. If we could change the settings we could make the add-ins display better in Outlook.

  3. Need method for Inviting Bulk-Added users, as opposed to manually.

    An email Invite should be available on either the User interface tab, or in bulk by pre-selecting users to Invite. Need bulk import of new users to include an external email address for the system to know where to send invite.

    So two thing's
    1) adjust template of import function to bulk populate new users, know with external email field.
    2) a method to trigger invites to one or more users or groups within tenant admin.

  4. Allow admins to manage calendar group on multiple users’ calendar

    It would be helpful if admins can manage calendar group to be created, activated and deleted on multiple users calendar altogether per their mail client.

  7. If a member user deletes an email item received in a shared mailbox, it will be stored in the deleted item of the deleted member's individua

    If a member user deletes an email item received in a shared mailbox, it will be stored in the deleted item of the deleted member's individual, and other members will not be able to view it.

    共有メールボックスで受信したメールアイテムをメンバーのユーザーが削除した場合、削除したメンバー個人の削除済みアイテムに格納されてしまい、他のメンバーが閲覧できなくなってしまう

  8. PTR Response

    When you request a ptr, the Microsoft DNS goes to timeout. MS support says it is normal and the Exchange IPs are dynamics and Nothing will be change.
    The problem is not FQDN is not the same as the name of Exchange server … but only that the IP exist in the MS domain. It is laughing that the remote office 365 test is falling on this test and says that it is normal that email are not delever…
    Regards

  10. Address book policy take upto 30 days to be refreshed

    Currently, Address book policy take up to 30 days to be refreshed to the existing users which don't meet most of the customer requirement. I request Microsoft to either reduce this time period to the acceptable amount or to provide a way to apply the same to the existing user.

  12. Add a UI option to disable the ability for users to create Groups (not Contact Groups) in Outlook

    the solution provided here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/office365/admin/create-groups/manage-creation-of-groups?view=o365-worldwide is terrible. this is exactly the kind of option that needs to be disabled by default, and only enabled if the sysadmin's want it. there should also be an option to disable it using the exchange admin centre without going into powershell. imagine the excitement when a user from a large organisation mistakes "group" for "contact group", and then all of a sudden theres a group called "unsavoryimages@microsoft.com" floating around. what great publicity that will be.

  13. Call back

    When we report an issue and need to receive a callback but the callback number is auto populated in the phone number field which makes the "call me" button grayed out. No one ever told me I needed to remove the number and type in the same number that auto populated to make the "call me" button work. Why not leave that blank or auto populate the assigned persons phone number (without the country code) to allow it to auto work? Or just remove the country code to allow it to work?

    This is the little things that drive me…

  14. Don't resize encrypted email template logo when message is clicked

    When an encrypted email message is clicked, the logo that has been uploaded to the default EXO template is resized and moved. It would be aesthetically pleasing and professional looking if the logo retained its original settings (centred on screen, and larger logo).

  15. My idea is COMMMERCIAL. I have paid a year HOME and want to upgrade to Premium Business.

    My idea is COMMMERCIAL. I have paid a year HOME and an EXCHANGE license. and want to upgrade to PREMIUM here are many free lancers that grow, start with HOME and then want to grow. Today it means I have to pay a full license for BUSINESS. I suggest refund HOME or credit it to the BUSINESS ACCOUNT. The current policy hampers my growth and Microsoft growth. Current policy has a 80s/90s taste. We are in 2018. Greetz Great products by the way. I LOVE THEM.

  16. A feature that can retrieve user information for who has been deleted last few years

    You cannot retrieve deleted user information in Office 365 audit log if it passed 90 days or more since the user has been deleted.
    In such a case, it would be difficult to retrieve the deleted users’ mail items though a third-party product and the process is a troublesome task. So, it would be great if you could implement the feature for audit log retrieving information for the last few years.

  18. Resource Room Calendar - View Event Owner, Even If Not Invited

    Within an Exchange resource room's calendar, currently you can use PowerShell to toggle the events to show the subject title (i.e. "Team Meeting"), and can toggle the owner of that event (i.e. "John Smith Team Meeting"). This looks sloppy, however, and it would look better to have the option to show the owner of all of the events after the subject title, similar to how it does on anybody's individual calendars. So for example:

    Team Meeting
    John Smith (<-- in smaller font)

  19. Give user a license during user creation even if there are no extra license available

    You will usually have a 1:1 ratio of valid and assigned licenses.

    This document should let us know what we can do if we do not have any extra licences to hand out. How can we buy a license during user creation and assign that license to our user using Powershell.

  20. Full Support for Unicode emojis in MailFlow rules

    I went to add an emoji to a subject line (within mailflow rules) only to discover that one of two emojis I was trying to use "wasn't supported". This is an emoji that's been around for years, so it suggests that Microsoft is pretty far behind on Unicode support within the platform.

    Upon opening a support ticket, I was informed that most aren't compatible, which made absolutely no sense to me, since I can use them all within my mail client. This suggests the mailflow rules are in dire need of an update.

    The Emoji in question that I was…
