  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. 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.

  3. 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…

  4. 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…

  5. 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

  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.

  8. 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.

    I logged a ticket with MS who provided the following details on what is restricted to techs using the delegated partner admin portal.

    delegated admin will have no access to
    1. Cannot convert User Mailbox to Shared Mailbox ( Vice versa )
    2. Will not be able to export eDiscovery results.

  11. Make it possible to enable individual service plans for multiple users

    We have lot of users with assigned E3 license. By default we always disable few services like Sway, Teams, Planner and Yammer for new users. But we always enable these individual services for existing users if they ask us.

    Today our bosses asked us to enable Yammer for all existing users. And there starts a problem. We can't use "New-MsolLicenseOptions" command to define disabled apps, because a few users has already enabled Sway and/or Teams. We want to keep these indivudal services enabled for these few users, but disabled for all others while enabling Teams for all users.

    Currently there…

    Search function of group and shared mailbox in office 365 admin center should not be case sensitive. Could the product team improve the search function in the office 365 admin center?

  13. 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.

  14. Version control for SharePoint site permissions similar to version control for documents.

    I'd like to see a new feature providing version control for SharePoint site permissions. For example, if a site owner inadvertently deletes complex permissions, the site owner, or another site owner could choose to rollback permissions to an earlier date and time much like version control for documents.

  15. 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…

  16. Extend the Hybrid Exchange Agent to support hybrid mail flow

    The (new) hybrid architecture simplifies network connectivity by leveraging the same principles as the Azure AD App Proxy. However, it only works for (inbound) HTTP connections used for Free/Busy and Mailbox Moves. Most hybrid deployments also use (hybrid) mail flow and would still require some sort of inbound connectivity to either Exchange or the Edge Transport servers. As such, the current implementation of the solution only solves half of the issue.

    Please, support this idea if you believe it would be a valuable addition to the solution. More specifically, I am hoping to solve the following challenges:

    1. Require inbound…

  17. Turn off transcripts on Microsoft Stream videos

    Currently the transcript appearing to the right of an uploaded video to MS Stream can only temporarily be turned off by switching it from the video directly. The problem is the next time the video loads, the transcript appears again. Please create a solution to turn it off completely, preferably also on Channel level

  19. Support CTK smart card authentication with Office 365 on Mac

    Currently when authenticating to Office 365 I need to do MFA using my yubikey in PIV mode. On macOS using CTK for smart card authentication, this doesn't work. I must enable legacy tokend support in order to authenticate in the office apps. I can authenticate just find using safari and chrome. Please support CTK for certificate based auth in the native office applications as well.
