  1. 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.

  2. Flagged emails in Shared mailbox not visible in Tasks in Outlook (desktop version)

    I hope to get this feature or function implemented, wherein flagged emails in Shared mailbox to show up in Tasks in Outlook. Currently when we flag emails in the Shared mailbox we don't see it under Tasks, even the flagged emails in the regular mailbox don't show up.

    We hope to have this considered and implemented...

  4. 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…

  6. Allow duplicate emails in Exchange

    Allow exchange to receive duplicate emails. By default, the message will be delivered only once even if it has the same mailbox as a recipient twice but it would be helpful to be able to receive duplicate emails in exchange even if it has the same mailbox as a recipient twice (such as individually and sent to a Gmail account which has a forwarding rule to the exchange account). This is to verify that the email sent on Gmail was received without logging in to the Gmail

  7. Enable Dynamic (Plus) Email Addresses for Distribution Lists

    The recent plus addressing feature (https://office365.uservoice.com/forums/273493-office-365-admin/suggestions/18612754-support-for-dynamic-email-aliases-in-office-365) appears to only work for mailboxes, not distribution lists.  The primary reason we wanted this feature was to enable teams without permission to create distribution lists or modify the alternate email addresses on their distribution lists to effectively create unique addresses on the fly.  There are a number of services which require unique email addresses be used to create each account and this would allow us to easily tie those accounts back to a single existing DL without engaging our Enterprise Services team each time to add a new address. Please allow…

  8. 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.

  9. Implement a feature that disable the Welcome message of Office 365 Groups (UnifiedGroupWelcomeMessageEnabled) by default

    This is because the value of UnifiedGroupWelcomeMessageEnabled can be changed after creating Office 365 Groups.
    So, we would like to request to implement a feature that can disable it with organization settings by default. And it would be also great if the Welcome message can be disabled when creating a new Office 365 Group.

  10. 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.

  11. Create a radial on ticket creation to confirm it is the correct tenant

    As a Microsoft support agent we are held to a high privacy standard to protect our customers. This gets a bit convuluted when the customer has a third party IT support. Too many times a ticket is opened up under the IT company's tenant instead of the customer tenant we need to work on. This puts us in a bad situation as we have to tell them to open a new ticket under the correct tenant. This causes frustration and lowers customer satisfaction and delays resolution.

    Solution: Add a Yes/No radial when creating a ticket asking if the tenant you…

  12. Feature to schedule when to export the Usage report from Microsoft 365 admin center

    We export the Exchange usage report and check it every month. So, it would be great if we could automatically export the Exchange usage report from Microsoft 365 admin center by setting a schedule, probably on the first day of every month.

  19. Mail Flow Rules - give ability to block internal only emails

    Mail Flow Rules - give ability to block emails with only internal recipients

    In Mail Flow Rules, under All This Rule, please add "All recipients include... " or something like that under the options for "Apply this rule if..." so that we can block emails which have only internal recipients since those conversations should be happening in Teams.

    Also, ideally we would be able to allow calendar invites to come through.

    Thanks!

  20. Add Bookings Admin Center

    It would be nice to have a Bookings Admin Center that would allow for global admins or specified Bookings admins to:


    1. View a list of all Bookings pages in the tenant

    2. Identify the admins of each Bookings page

    3. Add or remove an admin to/from a Bookings page

    4. Delete a Bookings page

    5. Allow the global admin to create pages for end users

    I see this being very similar to the SharePoint admin center.
