  1. Installation files need to be available for Office ProPlus to be installed on Terminal server

    Installation files need to be available for Office ProPlus to be installed on Terminal server. We have the Enterprise edition and have been told this version of Office works on Terminal server however files provided for Admin doesn't work as we get an error regarding Volume licensing. We pay for all users so we need access to use those respective licenses on the server.

  2. Direct move to creating Distribution group when clicking on the Distribution group button creation from Exchange admin portal

    Please allow direct move to creating Distribution group window when clicking on the button to Distribution group creation from Exchange admin portal. When we click it, then window to create Office 365 appears with a link 'click here' to create distribution group. The thing is that if I click on the button to create Distribution group, then it means I want to do it and going not directly is just time consuming. Please go back to the solution when it was working correctly.
    Thank you!

  3. It would be nice to have a timekeeping application add-on to OneNote and Office 365 in general, such as the software program, "Toggl."

    It would be nice to have an add-on application OR feature that allows one to easily keep track the amount of time working on something in OneNote, for example, or any other project. I like this program, and perhaps it would be something that developers could add-on to O365??? https://toggl.com/app/timer

  4. Disable notifications for unlicensed users which are shared mailboxes

    When a shared mailbox is created it is automatically added as a user, which is unlicensed. Now, whenever a page is loaded a notification pops up "Does everyone have a license?" and the sound is played.

    This is somehow annoying, as there are no unlicensed users but just shared mailboxes which are handled like unlicensed users.

    Switching off notifications does not work for this type of notification.

  5. Allow the admin to customize built-in apps in the apps area

    For many instance , organization can use the feature of apps launch to enable a single winodw to add all of their enterprise application. It becomes very ugly look, when office 365 add default apps as well in the portal and same is not able to customize. So it will be great if there any option hide / disable built in apps like sway, yammer or flow it will be getting more look on the portal

  6. Update Calc fields in Share POINT

    Really am loving all the power that is coming with Office 365. Particularly enjoy the use of Sharepoint lists, powerapps and Dynamics and feel the following would be a great enhancement


    1. Would really like to see SharePoint lists update its calculated fields without the need to edit


    2. Would like to see a workflow on a list based on date column or a calc field

  9. Disable survey's for Administrator Portals

    Hi there

    I work for a Microsoft Partner that provides customers with Office 365 via CSP. We manage their portals and charge them for changes in a 6 minute increment.

    We are frustrated with the frequency of Survey's popping up in administrator portals that Microsoft would like us to fill out. I understand it's important Microsoft gets feedback for its products so it's able to better them, but getting in the way of our administration of the portal actually results in Administrators being frustrated and prevented from efficiently doing our job. Please request admin survey via email or phone call…

  12. There should be an option to export all O365 users along with their group membership

    As of now when we export all users we could get Fist Name, Last Name, Display Name, SMTP etc. It would be great if you add one more column i.e. Group membership of each user.

  13. Power BI "Publish to web"-permission on user-level instead on tenant-level

    Currently it is only possible to allow "Publish to Web" for PowerBI Reports on tenant Level (Tenant Settings). I would be great if this right could be set on a user-Level since some staff from Research is supposed to publish Reports for customers and Partners, however other staff is not supposed to be able to do so.

  17. malware filter, messages from internal senders, would be better if checked against actual users and aliases, not spoofed fakes

    would be better if the email warning could let me know which of my domain users is mentioned in the email. For example the warning only tells me the FROM (sender address) not the return path which is apparently where the warning derived its internal connection from:
    senderaddress returnpath
    evea@ncat.edu evea@[my domain].com
    However it would be even better if it would then run the user in the return path against our list of users and aliases since this evea has never been used at our organization so not actually internal.

  19. Remove user from Exchange Distribution Group

    Exchange
    User - Properties
    Membership - shows all groups user is a member of

    It should be possible to remove the user from groups in THIS VIEW (like you can in on-premise Exchange) instead of having to manually go to each group you want to remove them from.

    I know you can do it with Powershell - but for some folks we have delegated admin to - that is a bit much. Doing it through the GUI would be a lot easier.
