  2. Office 365 Exchange attributes still editable via Portal with Azure Connect Sync

    I would like to see the option that when you setup Azure Connect to sync ADD with local AD for password and writeback, the Office 365 Exchangemailbox attributes config will still be available in the portal. Now you need a full AD scheme update and edditing Attributes localy. While we just want password sync and leave Exchange in the cloud.

  3. Warning signal if tenant gets overloaded

    Warning signal when the tenant utilization gets above 80% utilization due to too many documents, search crawler overload. Bad solution on top of SharePoint online.

  5. Notifications in the Admin Portal for upgrades of client software

    I would like to see a notification in the Admin Portal on what Office updates are being pushed out to the clients. Possibly even have a date of when they will be pushed out. We can then be prepared for any problems that might come up.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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…

  10. 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

  11. 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.

  13. 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…
