  1. Remove case sensitive searches for shared mailboxes and permissions

    Over the last month or so case sensitive searches have been added into the shared mailbox and permissions sections on the Office 365 admin page. Could these be reverted back or was there a reason for case sensitive searches being added?

    I had weeks of no results coming back until I spoke to Microsoft Support who also have the issue and they noticed it is now case sensitive.

  2. Allow reconcile of conflicting service options across licensing plans

    Assigning licenses for service options across license plans is buggy and unpredictable. E.g. You have enabled SharePoint Online (Plan 1) service option in a licensing plan that's assigned to a group via Azure AD. Project Online has SharePoint Online (Plan 2) and you'd like to assign the license to your Project Services Role Group. You can't because, it won't let you disable SP Plan 1 from the existing licensing plan and then you can't enable SP Plan 2 because SP Plan 1 is already enabled. Project Online demands that you use SP Plan 2. Basically, you're snookered. If this issue…

  3. Change default language of tenant

    After a tenant is created the tenant language cannot be changed. If the tenant was initialy created with the local language of the headquater of a company (not English) there is no possibility to change the language to the best fit for all users, e.g. English.
    That causes that automated mails are sent in the tenants language to users worldwide and that there are mails that have a mixed of languages.
    If should be possible to change the default languange of the tenant after the initial creation.

  4. Need the ability to turn off "Notify my team" feature for document library upload

    When uploading a document to a SharePoint library in "Modern Experience", the "Notify my team" option appears. We need the ability to turn this off because it triggered notification to all groups and/or users that have permission to the library. The groups can contain hundred of thousand of users causing hundred of thousand notification emails to be sent out to O365 organization. This is causing major business disruption. We would like to avoid this disruption by turning "Notify my team" feature. According to this tech community article (https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/SharePoint/Modern-Library-quot-Notify-your-team-quot-option-after-upload/td-p/220338), there is currently no way to turn off this feature.

  5. Resolve SMTP mail duplicate problem when sending to multiple addresses from GSuite

    GSuite accounts that are configured to send through Office 365 accounts via SMTP started sending multiple copies of the same email any time more than one domain name is sent to in a single email. For example you might send a sales update to 40 email addresses across multiple domains and each recipient will receive the same email 40 times. For further information on the issue please read this thread: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook_com/forum/oemail-osend/multiple-copies-of-emails-sent-to-recipients-via/84cf9460-b7f4-4e6a-bf97-a115a825f369?tm=1538072613792

    The only work around's are to BCC the group and put yourself in the To: field (no one gets duplicates but you) or you can take the time to…

  6. 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.

  7. Disable auto-deletion of calendar updates containing non-time updates

    Current behavior in Outlook 2016/2013, as well as O365 OWA when an existing calendar appointment is updated with a text change, or attachment addition is for the appointment to be auto-updated, and the update message to be sent to the deleted items. This causes users to miss vital calendar updates.

    I have opened a case with Microsoft, and was told that there is no way to modify this behavior from either the client or admin portal.

    I suggest either adding a client option (to Outlook or OWA) to disable this behavior (so ALL calendar modification messages show in the inbox,…

  9. Partner Admin Restrictions

    We have now enforced all our techs to use the partner admin to restrict and log access but some of the restrictive features are really causing us issues particularly some of the things that are done on a daily basis like converting user mailboxes to shared.

    delegated admin will have no access to
    1. Cannot convert User Mailbox to Shared Mailbox ( Vice versa )

  10. converting sync with ad users to In Cloud User

    A week back, I was able to convert my AD sync users to In Cloud user by simply moving that user from the Local AD OU that was configured to sync the users to Office365 to some other OU. After next Azure AD Connect synchronization, that user account was marked as deleted @ Office365 and moved to Deleted User. I then restore that user @ Office365 and after some time it change to In-Cloud user. I will then replace the old user information / email addresses with the new user @ Office365.

    I also perform the same changes in my…

  11. Remove case sensitive for "Search to add members" in Distribution lists

    When adding members to any groups like 365 it gives you the option to search for members in any case, however when trying to add a member to a "Distribution list" nothing is returned, unless you type the correct case of their name.

    Please remove case sensitive for "Search to add members" in Distribution lists. No other "group" has this and is inconsistent with the use of 365 admin portal

  17. Change default language in Sharepoint (OneDrive)

    For an international company, it is important to define the company language (e.g. English) as the default language. Unfortunately, when initializing O365, the language is set according to the location (in our case "German"). This is devastating because all SharePoint pages (including OneDrive) are subsequently created in "German". This should at least be pointed out.
    Unfortunately there is no possibility to change the default language afterwards. The workarounds with multi-language support are not satisfactory. Nevertheless, German continues to dominate in many areas

    Please point out the importance of the language during the initial setup and give the possibility to select…

  18. Add multiple e-mail address management to Exchange Online Protection standalone console

    Exchange Online Protection standalone product (usage without mailbox in Office 365) does not provide a way to manage multiple e-mail addresses for users, groups in the limited Exchange Admin web console. This is only possible by using Powershell or contacting support and get a workaround URL to do so. It would be great and simplify management of users, contacts and groups to have all features in one unified console.

  20. Allow targeted release track to use AD groups for targeting

    It would be ideal if we could leverage our licensing AD groups for targeted releases. As it is currently setup we will have to manually maintain the targeted release users by exporting the list of group members and importing into O365.
