  1. 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…

  2. Hoping for a feature that enables administrator users to change MyAnalytics settings

    ■Title(件名):

    Hoping for a feature that enables administrator users to change MyAnalytics settings


    ■Description(内容):
    MyAnalytics を利用する際に、管理者側でユーザーの利用設定を変更できる機能を実装希望です。
    現在は設定変更を行うために、ユーザー自身が個別に設定を行わなければならないため、テナント全体での管理を行う際に工数が発生します。
    Microsoft 365 管理センターの [サービスとアドイン] から MyAnalytics に関連する項目を設定することで、設定以降に作成される新規ユーザーへの設定に反映することは確認済みですが、既に作成し MyAnalytics を利用開始しているユーザーに対しても管理者側で設定変更をできる機能があれば、多くの工数をかけずに管理が可能になります。​
    We hope for a feature to enable administrators to change the users settings when using MyAnalytics.
    Currently in order to change the settings, users have to do it by themselves, and this leads to additional work when managing the whole tenant.
    We have confirmed that by setting items related to MyAnalytics from [Services and Add-ins] in the Microsoft 365 admin center it will be reflected in the settings for…

  3. Check the mail format when sending email

    We sent emails with HTML format to two users at the same time. But one received the mail with HTML format, and the other got it with Text format.
    So, it would be great if you could implement a feature that we could know the mail format when sending it so that we could know how the mail would look like.

  5. 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. Allow redirect rules to work even if forwarding is enabled.

    Allow redirect rules to work even if forwarding is enabled in the Inbox Rules and vice versa.

    If your redirection is set to Store and Forward, then the copy of the messages that is still delivered to the mailbox will have Inbox Rules applied to it.

    Redirection happens before Inbox Rules are applied so if redirection is set to Forward only, Inbox Rules will not be applied. This is by design and not something we will consider changing at this time.

  8. Obtain the last log-in time of guest users

    Although we can obtain sign-in history of guest users via Sign-in activity reports in AAD, it is still difficult for us to compile all sign-in histories with each service. It would be very convenient if we can get only the last log-in time for each service, so that we can easily identify which service is used or not used. Thus, I would request you to implement a report function to get last log-in time for guest users.

  9. One Drive share links are not eliminated until the retention period ends

    For security reasons it will be good that the shared links from ONEDRIVE be eliminated for external sharing once the account it is eliminated from Azure AD not when the retention period end. Internals links are ok to maintain but not the external. We have users leaving the company and sharing with their social emails the entire Onedrive folder.

  10. Allow use of new top level domains for forwarding

    We cannot forward a user's email to another email address on any of our domains from the admin centre as they end in .academy which Microsoft doesn't recognise as valid. The save changes button never becomes active and we just have the message under the box saying to enter a valid email address. If we put a dot and any two letters on the end the system is suddenly happy and will let us save even though that isn't a valid email making this check utterly pointless. Even more ridiculous is that the user themselves can set up a forward…

  11. 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

    2. Will not be able to export eDiscovery results.
    3. Cannot delete…

  12. Implement a feature that can block external emails with spoofed display name by using Transport rule

    Recently, we receive mails with a spoofed display name, but there is no way to block such spoofing mails now. As a workaround, we have to change our mail addresses, but some users don’t want to change their address due to business reasons. So, it would be great if we could use Transport rule to block such spoofing emails.

  14. Deterring Reply All for large number of recipients

    Add a "are you sure you want to proceed" prompt if a user wants to "reply all" when the "To" field has more than X number of recipients or more than X number of DL's. Goal is to avoid unnecessary Mail Storms.

  15. Add-Ins deployed via centralized deployment should still be available after diabling optional connected experiences in office

    In version 1904, the new privacy controls for O365 ProPlus have been released, including the possibility to deactivate so-called "optional connected experiences". The documentation states that those services are not covered by the contract made between the company and microsoft, so we'd like to deactivate those services.
    Deactivating the optional connected experiences also means deactivating the office store and its add-ins. According to our tests, this also affects the add-ins, that have been explicitly deployed via centralized deployment.
    This is not be behaviour we expected. If you deploy an add-in in the admin centre, it also means that it has…

  17. Block sending, replying or forwarding email if competitors are included as recipients

    It would be great if you could implement a feature to block sending emails if the message has competitive domains. For example, assuming that domain A, domain B and domain C are competitive companies. When you send an email to domain A and if domain B or C was included in To and Cc lines, we would like to block sending the email.

    We currently cannot this setting by using transport rules.

  19. Get rolled out features from Office 365 tenant correlated to Microsoft 365 roadmap

    It would be interesting for us as MSFT partners, and probably for many other admins, to be able to get a list of the latest rolled-out updates from an Office 365 tenant.

    Message center tells you when an update will, more or less, be rolled-out, but you never know for sure if it is deployed or not into your tenant.

    Now, you can get the Tenant build from the Exchange Management Shell, but there is no way to correlate the build number with any roadmap items.

    It would be awesome if we could poll an Office 365 tenant (through powershell,…

  20. Implement a feature that quarantine messages except the messages from the specific domain

    I would like to quarantine e-mails except the messages from specific domains. Because we cannot achieve this by using transport rule due to the character limits when adding other domains as exceptions.
