  1. Admin controls required for New Feature: SharePoint Auto Digest Email MC215356

    SharePoint auto digest email for SharePoint News is rolling out, but only the users themselves can unsubscribe. This is extremely inconvenient, we have customers who have thousands of users with active SPO licenses awaiting training and adoption activities. Their first introduction to SPO will now be a pointless weekly spam message from their new system.
    SharePoint News is not actively used in all tenants either, pushing the feature like this might be disruptive to adoption plans and governance established. Please provide admin control over this feature.

  2. Disable the feature that is mentioned in MC213897

    We would like to disable the feature that a user who is blocked from purchasing self-service purchase product will be able to submit a request to be unblocked.
    We already determined that our organization doesn’t let users utilize the self-service purchase service. But if users submit the request to unblock in each time, Admins will have more work. We need to disable the feature so that Admins could reduce his task.

  3. Giving possibility to import and deploy Office 365 PowerPoint Forms Add-in in Office 365 Admin

    As per documentation to insert Forms in Office 365 Powerpoint, the administrator must set "Let users access the Office store".

    If you're trying to insert Forms in PowerPoint and at the same time your organization is blocked individual installation of Add-ins from Office Store, but there is no other way to allow using it, except allow users to use Office Store. Due to privacy, security or other reasons, it can't be done.

    Organizations haven't another way to install it via Office 365 Admin Console, for example, or as separate Add-in.
    The Idea is creating a separate add-in for Forms Button…

  4. Exchange Online Powershell with Service Principal

    I'd like to run the exchange online powershell with a service principal. The use case is easy - we're running a background service setting some specific configuration on user mailboxes and don't want to use an admin account for that. It's sad this is not on the graph directly possible but at least make SPNs available for use with Exchange Powershell.

  5. Allow ability to restrict O365 Group Members to EDIT, DELETE Team site pages

    The regular members of the Team site should not be able to EDIT and/or DELETE pages, including but not limited to the homepage of the site. We have tried various tricks to achieve this via fiddling with SharePoint custom permissions, changing default permissions levels and reallocating permissions to the members group but they break connection to Teams in MS Teams and other office 365 shared services. We do not use SharePoint like Wiki where members should be allowed to add/edit pages, add/delete contents etc. This is a different use case and a major issue for organization, departments where someone goes…

  6. Allow sending as Alias address

    The user should be able to edit the FROM address in Outlook and send an e-mail message as any of the aliases associated with the user mailbox.
    .
    Many other e-mail providers allow this, and Office 365 should also offer it as a possibility.
    .
    .
    Workaround Distribution List:
    If you want the user to send from an alias, but receive answers in their own mailbox, then you must create a Distribution List (DL) and add the alias address to it. Then provide "send as" permission to the user.
    .
    This is too complicated, hard to manage and keep track…

  7. Request Exchange hybrid key for Exchange Server 2019 activation with Hybrid Configuration Wizard (HCW)

    Actually it is not possible to obtain a free Exchange Server 2019 activation with a hybrid key. For earlier Exchange Versions this works trough HCW, but not with Exchange 2019: "Please note that HCW does not provide a 'hybrid key' for Exchange Server 2019. If you need a hybrid key, the latest version that it is available for is Exchange Server 2016."

    This is not customer friendly at all - so please add Exchange 2019 to this feature.

  8. Enable option to clear or delete the whole Preservation Hold Library

    After removing the lock on the preservation hold library, we can delete items. However, it only allows us to delete files by batch However, it would be troublesome to delete files manually specially if the library contains around 1TB. So we need an option in the library settings that would allow to automatically clear preservation hold library or delete the library itself.

  9. Disable O365 profile photo updated when changed in Windows 10 2004 update User Account Settings

    With the new Windows 10 2004 May update. If a person changes their profile photo in Change Account Settings. Under Your Info, Create Your Picture, you can upload a new profile photo and it will also change the O365 profile photo. This happens even if you have the OwaMailboxPolicy -SetPhotoEnabled $false. Right now employees can overwrite the Company approved profile photos with their own.

  10. Keep the New-MoveRequest cmdlt remained

    We are aware of the decommission of the New-MoveRequest cmdlt as per the message center announcement: MC206405, but we would like to keep using it. This cmdlet is very useful as a workaround for some problems such as the OOF delay on the room mailbox. So it would be great if you can keep it remained or provide us any other alternative method for New-MoveRequest.

  11. Updates in SharePoint are overwritten during collaboration

    The issue occurs when multiple users are collaborating on a file and one (or more) user is disconnected from the internet. Once the user is reconnected, the user either saves an updated version (i.e., updates to the previously opened version) or saves (or auto-saves) the previous version. This will overwrite any updates made by other user(s) while the user was disconnected.

    Here’s an example that outlines the scenario:


    1. User 1 opens the file and views current version A.


    2. User 2 opens the same file and views current version A.


    3. User 2’s internet is disconnected while viewing version A (e.g., due…

  12. Enable the 'Do Not Deliver Before' option to OWA to delay sending emails.

    With so many of us working from remote locations and working modified schedules, it is important that we are able to delay email delivery to ensure our colleagues are able to maintain work/life balance, even though some of us may not be able to. With limited VPN resources, I rely on OWA. It would be nice to have the functionality of delayed delivery in OWA, like I do in the desktop app.

  13. Retrieve the calendar items for all objects in the tenant

    I would like to retrieve the calendar items info for all objects in the tenant at once.

    It would be better if we could retrieve the calendar items info at once such as all users or meeting room; we could get them individually now.

  15. Option to disable "Popular Around Me" in OneDrive

    In OneDrive (on the web) --> Shared, there is a new section at the top of the page labeled "Popular Around Me".

    OneDrive admins should be able to disable this feature at the tenant level or per user or group.

    It currently cannot be disabled.

  16. Windows PowerShell commandlets that support Microsoft Stream

    Windows PowerShell commandlets that support Microsoft Stream


    ■Description(内容):
    現時点にて Microsoft Stream の管理を行うための Windows PowerShell コマンドレットが存在しないため、殆どの管理を GUI で行う必要があります。

    アップロードした動画や Microsoft Stream を利用するユーザーが増えると管理の工程が増えるため、Windows PowerShell を利用して所有者および、閲覧者を確認するコマンドレットや動画の閲覧者を一括して登録が行えるといったコマンドレットの提供を希望します。​
    Currently there are no Windows PowerShell commandlets to support Microsoft Stream management, and almost all management needs to be done on the GUI.

    If the amount of videos uploaded or Microsoft Stream users increase the workload for managing them will increase as well, thus we hope that Windows PowerShell commandlets will be provided for checking owners and viewers, and for registering video viewers at once.

    Change the behavior where Office 365 audit logs create duplicate output


    ■Description(内容):
    現在 Office 365 監査ログ では、ザーバーの不可状況やサーバー間の同期のタイミングによって同一 Id のログが重複して出力されることがあります。
    同一のものを削除してカウントするには工数がかかるため、標準機能内で重複したものを削除する機能の実装か、重複が起こらないよう Office 365 監査ログ自体の精度の向上を希望します。

    Currently in the Office 365 audit log, in cases where the server cannot be contacted or a sync is taking place with the server, it outputs duplicates of ID logs.
    Since it takes work to check and delete the duplicate entries, we would like a function that deletes duplicates, or for the Office 365 audit log function itself to be improved such that it does not create duplicates.

  19. Configure Preferences for Report Message Add-In

    The Report Message Add-In can be deployed centrally but there should be a method to control the settings/preferences in it centrally. For example, set the default option for reporting preference (e.g. always send, never send, ask every time). This should be configurable somewhere (e.g. registry key, GPO, Centralized Deployment manager, Exchange Online policy, etc. The default to ask every time is not the setting we want for our organization, but there is no way currently to reconfigure the default. Please reconsider this.
