  1. Enable DKIM for Office 365 Home with custom email domain

    The Office 365 Home subscription allows you to use your your own email domain. However, there is no option to enable DKIM and without it, outgoing email often ends up in the recipient's Spam folder, making the custom email domain capability useless.

    Please expose the DKIM setting on the UI for O365 Home subscribers.
    The feature itself is already implemented and available in the Business edition, but requires the Admin panel which does not exist in Office 365 Home.

  2. 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.

  3. Change the behavior where Office 365 audit logs create duplicate output

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    Office 365 監査ログが重複して出力される動作の改修を希望します。
    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.

  4. set-place Floor as string and not as integer only

    If you try to set Floor on the properties of a Meeting Room you can only add numbers. Some Floors have some letters, like RC, or Rooftop. Can this property allow string and not only numbers?

    複数のサービス リクエストがある場合、どのチケット番号がどんな内容だったかわからないため、サービス リクエストのタイトルや内容がわかるように改善希望。

    When looking at support history and survey responses in the Microsoft365 admin center, only the tracking number is shown.
    If there are a number of service requests, it is difficult to know which numbers correspond to what content, so please make it possible to see the title of the service request too.

  6. 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.

  7. Office365 - Multiple Domains - Shared mailboxes with common start (ie sales@)

    Office365 - Multiple Domains - Shared mailboxes with common start (ie sales@).

    When you have a single office365 installation that has multiple domains, it is not possible to create the same prefix of an email (ie before the @ sign) for shared mail boxes on the different domains.

    For example, if I want to have sales@ on Domain1.com, Domain2.com and Domain3.com, I could successfully create sales@Domain1.com but when I try to create sales@Domain2.com I get an error about the alias already being used.

    This has been touched on a number of sites, here is one:

    In cases where the mail addresses of external users are registered in the “Contacts” on Exchange Online, “Work email address” becomes blank, notifications from SharePoint are not delivered, and one needs to register the “Work email address” item separately.
    Also, when registering the contact details, there are cases where a number of overlapping errors occur.

  13. Enable the NDR or quota warning message customization in Exchange Online

    It would be very useful if we can customize the NDR or quota warning message in Exchange Online like we do in Exchange Server on-prem by running Set-SystemMessage, so that we can leverage Exchange Online more effectively to meet our business needs.

  16. Open files which are encrypted by service principal name with Office Online

    Currently, we have to open files on local if the file is encrypted by Service principal name, such as like encrypt with MCAS.
    This limitation is written on the docs below.
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/compliance/sensitivity-labels-sharepoint-onedrive-files?view=o365-worldwide#limitations

    However, to use this function with better experience, I think SPO should support those files to open on local as same as other files.

  18. Allow EOL Default Retention Policy to Archive only emails

    As a business, we want all of our users to have their emails Archives automatically as otherwise the local OST file would become too big. Therefor we apply a 6 months policy rules by default on all mailboxes.

    The problem is that the Calendars, Tasks and Notes are also being applied this policy. Tasks for instance can be on-going for years but they are being archived even though they weren't completed.

    We cannot apply a no archive rules while asking our users to manually apply each folder one by one an archiving rule; as everyone in the IT business would…

  19. Don't deprecate Search-Mailbox in EXO

    "Note : In cloud-based environments, the Search-Mailbox cmdlet is being deprecated in favor of New-ComplianceSearch"

    Replacing the capability of Search-Mailbox with the new ComplianceSearch and ComplianceSearchActions cmds is a terrible user experience and moves a single step process to a multi-step process with manual intervention. If this functionality is to go away for good, this will severely hinder our ability to execute requests in a timely and efficient manner.

    I would argue that these are different use cases and can easily co-exist in the tenant.

    O365 is supposed to be in the business of streamlining processes with efficiency, not convoluting…
