  2. Top CC and TOP BCC reports

    Currently, we only have TOP Recipient and TOP sender reports. However, we would like to have a new feature to filter also the TOP CC and TOP BCC reports.

    Hope this feature can be released soon.

  3. Don't force admin center preview UI, but let us choose default old admin UI.

    Please let admins choose the default admin UI. Each time we log on we need to change to old one.
    Old one is much less performant.

  4. Email retention policy

    I was told by the integration company that emails are going to be archived as long as I have the O365 account. So, we made a process where when an employee leaves the organization, we deactivate his license and activate it if we needed to retrieve important information from his/her email.
    I had a user left the organization and I reactivated the license after 4 months to find out no emails anymore. I have $100,000 proposal sitting there, how do I retrieve? If I was not mis-informed, I would have put a process to archive the emails when an employee…

  5. Allow disabling parts of the Sharepoint Online environment

    A license of Sharepoint online is needed for using Delve, OneDrive, Sites, Newsfeed.
    However - we only want to use the OneDrive functionality for now. Even if there are ways in the customizing to remove the items from the app launcher - via indirect ways users can still access these features.
    The request is to be able to disable certain functions of the Sharepoint Online platform

  6. The ability to filter the default reports in Office 365 admin portal, section reports.

    I would like to see the ability to filter these reports based on the domain since we are using 1 tenant for multi domains. It should be able to apply the filter on most all reports, also OneDrive for Business & Skype For Business reports.

  8. Keep logs for deprovisioned users for 10 days

    Logs of email messages and user access are not kept when an account is reprovisioned. Data related to an account/email address is kept for 90’s after a license is removed from an account. The logs associated with that account should be kept for at least 10 days to 30 days.

    This caused an issue after a license was accidentally removed from a user and added back less than an hour later. Message Trace logs and connected device information was lost for the one user. This made it difficult to prove a time sensitive email was sent from a user account…

  16. Provide custom fields while user creation with drop down feature for 3-4 options of user definable fields.

    Provide custom fields while user creation with drop down feature for 3-4 options of user definable fields. This helps for tenets who are not dependent on on-premise AD or exchange.

  18. The mobile devices page is very confusing - I suggest it should show the device name instead of (or as well as) the device type

    I ended up wiping my current Lumia 950 (Windows 10 mobile) because it was shown as WP8 - so I assumed that was my old Lumia with WP8 on it! A support team member showed me that the "Details" screen shows which device it is but I still believe the "!Type" column is not only useless but actually confusing. Why no show the device name instead (or as well)?

  19. Bug in New O365 Admin Portal View

    Our Service Desk team has an O365 admin account to assign and remove licenses to our employees. They temporarily upgraded their portal to the new view and were suddenly unable to assign licenses. They received an error that said "Failed to assign product licenses". Upon rolling back to the old view, they were able to assign licenses again. This seems to be a bug in the upgrade.
