  2. exchange addin

    Manage exchange addins by groups.
    Right now you can only manage by user. If you want to provide to targeted groups, you need to do it threw a script. It would be better if the option to provide by groups would be available.

  3. Service Request needs REQUIRED fields for contact

    We are a state government O365 client. We recently submitted a ticket for Microsoft Premier Support through O365 admin portal. We did not get a response and had to contact our support liaison and escalate within our state's contract oversight.

    We were told we had not been contacted because there was no contact info in the ticket.

    The fields in the form were "title", "error message" and "Description". After the ticket was created there was "Notes".

    If contact info cannot be pulled from the account and must be in the ticket, then there should be separate, REQUIRED fields for contact…

  4. Ability to backup and restore enitre email accounts from the admin panel and download the pst files from there

    Having to put an account on a computer with outlook to backup a pst file is so 10 years ago. It would be great for busineses to easily backup email accounts as pst files and archive them off the 365 portal directly. Like start the process, and when it is done, it is sitting in your one drive.

  5. Switching between MS products

    I WAS considering buying Business Premium as I want the ability to record Skype calls, maybe do webinars and I understand that there is also a calendar scheduling program MS offers on this version, too.

    I have office 365 home till 3/19

    I know that I can have 30 days trial of Business Prem to check things out and I am considering it.

    However, I am very disappointed that if I go the next step (and want to buy BP)at I would have to pay for BP and then cancel Home and all I get is a token for a…

  6. View total items in a cloud mailbox under Mailbox Usage tab

    With Exchange 2010 EMC, you can open an on premise mailbox and see the Total Items inside that mailbox. With Exchange Online, you cannot see this in the cloud mailbox. Under mailbox usage you only see the total size.

  7. Allow Administrators to see All Users and thier Associated permissions

    I am shocked, that there is no way to see all users in a SharePoint online tenant and their permissions. It would be nice to have a dashboard where you can get a list of users in the online tenant, click on a user to reveal their profile including everything they have access to. I used to be able to use an app called Sushi in my SharePoint 2007 farm, where I was able to choose a user and it listed All permissions and whether they were inherited or granted.

  8. Allow users to save files as they need to rather than dealing with "Make sure the fil/path name doesn't contain more than 218 characters"

    Allow users to save files as they need to rather than dealing with "Make sure the fil/path name doesn't contain more than 218 characters"

    We didn't have this issue with our server which ran on Server 2012. This issue needs to be fixed quickly as we have switched 2 of our companies over to the cloud and all employees are using SharePoint. We spend a lot of money monthly for this service Please fix immediately.

  10. Add Ability for Business Prospects to Block Time on my Calendar

    I have just come from a business conference where I have come away with 25 new business prospects. I want to invite them to block a phone meeting with me on a prescheduled date. For example, I have blocked out October 31, and want them to book 30 minute slots within that time frame. Since each is with a different company, I don't want them to know each other, I only want them to see open or booked times on the October 31 calendar.

  11. Clear recent items on Office 2016 (WORD and others) for Mac

    All Mac OSX capable apps offer option to clear list of recent files. All but Office 2016 (and this is a feature that 1) we had with Office 2011 and 2) that Windows users still have. I have recently decided to upgrade from Office 2011 to 365 subscription, and this is a feature that I now miss. Not teh only one, but one.

  13. provide options for write lock out

    provide an admin option to change the write lock out time. 10 minutes is way too long for a fast paced business as it is creating sync issues

  14. automatically increment & decrement licenses based on assignment

    When I want to add a new license of any product I have to purchase a license before I can apply it. When i remove an employee, I have to manually decrement the license count so we arent in an overlicensed scenario.
    I would like the system to automatically add and remove licenses based on actual assignment.

  15. Recover Deleted Items increase to 30 days

    We are using Exchange Online (2013). We would like to change the Recover Deleted Items default of 15 days to 30 days. It can be done easily, with a PowerShell command. But guess what, it only applies to users CURRENTLY in the organization. Every time a new user is added, you have to re-run the PowerShell command. Holy 1985 Batman.

    With new sign-in experience of Office 365, I am unable to hide "Keep me signed in". I checked the setting and it is still set to "No". Is it a known issue?

  18. Búsqueda y auditoria

    Cordial saludo,

    En la búsqueda de contenido debería existir un filtro que me permita indicar si la búsqueda es en Skype, Correo o otras aplicaciones.

    Adicional en los resultados de la búsqueda, poder visualizar mas de 100 registros ya que en un proceso de auditoria es mas fácil visualizar la información en este modo y no en un archivo exportado, puesto que en un archivo CSV es mas complicado de buscar la información.

    Quedo atento.

  19. After Office 365 version 1701, build 7766.2099, running macros with loops causes Excel 2016 to freeze

    We needed to revert back to earlier versions of O365 in order to avoid this issue and can not allow automatic updates.
