  2. Windows PowerShell commandlets that support Microsoft Stream

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    Microsoft Stream に対応する Windows PowerShell コマンドレットについて
    Windows PowerShell commandlets that support Microsoft Stream


    ■Description(内容):
    現時点にて Microsoft Stream の管理を行うための Windows PowerShell コマンドレットが存在しないため、殆どの管理を GUI で行う必要があります。

    アップロードした動画や Microsoft Stream を利用するユーザーが増えると管理の工程が増えるため、Windows PowerShell を利用して所有者および、閲覧者を確認するコマンドレットや動画の閲覧者を一括して登録が行えるといったコマンドレットの提供を希望します。​
    Currently there are no Windows PowerShell commandlets to support Microsoft Stream management, and almost all management needs to be done on the GUI.

    If the amount of videos uploaded or Microsoft Stream users increase the workload for managing them will increase as well, thus we hope that Windows PowerShell commandlets will be provided for checking owners and viewers, and for registering video viewers at once.

  4. Show a warning message when enable/disable the transport rule in the Exchange admin center

    To avoid misconfiguration, it would be great if a warning message shows up when a user attempt to switch enable/disable on any transport rule in the Exchange admin center.

  5. Custom Mail Tips based on headers

    Lets say inbound email has failed SPF or DKIM check, we do not want to block those emails, today we have a rule to edit the email subject so end-user is aware of it.

    what if instead of editing subject or body, i would have a rule to add custom header (Security: SPF-FAIL) on my mail relay, then i would have a transport rule:
    if header Security: SPF-FAIL exist then add mail tip: "warning this email failed bla bla bla"

    that would be great because now if i reply or forward this to external recipient he will not see my…

  6. Require TLS Fallback Automatically to OME

    When sending e-mails out with sensitive content, we can currently use a Transport Rule to detect said content (Sensitive Info Types) and take an action. Would like to be able to create a transport rule that first does "Require TLS." However, if TLS is not supported by the receiving server, have Office 365 automatically fail back over to OME and send out the e-mail securely that way. With Require TLS, if the receiving server doesn't support TLS, the user has to wait to find out that their e-mail did not go through. They also have to resend the e-mail manually.…

  7. Add wildcard feature to making searching easier in the Office 365 admin center

    We have a couple of clients that have over 1000 accounts and 200 dist lists. It would be so much easier to find what we are looking for if there was a wildcard feature in the search bar, such as * or %

    Once a tenant has been migrated to Cloud Voicemail the UM options under Phone and Voice Features for the account should be removed as it is no longer functional.

  13. Updating user contact information, phone numbers now require a "valid format"

    Recently I have spent sometime updating user contact information in our office 365 system. I have been using the new admin centre and for some reason it was decided that a phone number now has to follow a "valid format" or else it won't let you save the updated information. This "valid format" appears to mean that no spaces are allowed in the phone number.

    Now, the reason that this is an issue is because of how we typically format phone numbers in the UK. For mobile numbers, the most popular method is 5 digits, a space and then 6…

  14. 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…

  17. More secure MFA notification option in Microsoft Authenticator

    I've been using the Microsoft Authenticator for years working at a large business with the notification option - considering how many systems I need to login to every day, the notification option makes it much simpler in terms of UX to get into the systems that I need.

    Due to an increase in phishing attempts, it's been deemed that the notification option is now insecure - most likely due to someone clicking "Yes" without thinking.

    Could you please look to include a more secure option for the notification option that provides a code on the screen when logging in, and…

  20. Adding guest users in the azure portal should associate guest users to the default domain in the tenant

    Currently when adding guest users in the Azure portal, it would associate guest users' address to the initial .onmicrosoft.com domain if they are not existing Office 365 users. It would be more convenient if guest users' will be associated to the default domain verified on the tenant even if they are not Office 365 users.
