  2. Make Sharepoint & Ondrive as simple as Dropbox, Bos, or Sync.

    Terrible to try to set up onedrive or sharepoint on server. Dropbox took less than 4 minutes (box and syn slightly longer), while, after an hour 38 minutes still unable to set up Sharepoint and onedrive on current windows server and client machines.

  3. Notify Email Users and business owners if "administrator" does not respond, prior to shutting off account.

    I am an attorney who owns a small firm. We hired a independent contractor to set up our cloud based system, etc, just like most small businesses do. The account was set up to bill the business debit card. When we received the new chip card, the old debit card no longer worked. Presumably this is a common situation. Apparently notices were only sent to the administrator of the account that the bill had not been paid. The administrator had since left independent contracting business and word never reached my firm that this was an issue. Instead the email account…

  4. Display an error message if Convert Mailbox to Shared fails

    If an admin is not logged in with proper permissions for mailbox management and she/he tries to convert a mailbox to shared, no error message is displayed, just the usual dialog box with progress bar. The admin has no clue that the process failed except by checking the list of Shared Mailboxes afterwards.

  5. Distribution Groups Creation - Default Privacy Option Change

    Set the default Privacy option to either Private or Public when the user creates a Distribution Group. At this time, if the user doesn't change it, the default option will be Public.

    Thank you,
    Edward

  6. notification to all admins when changes are made to permissions in O365 portal or Exchange online

    we have multiple admins. we want all admins to be notified real time when changes are made to permissions in O365/Exchange online. we can reactively parse audit logs to find out who made changes to permissions but sometimes that may be too late and damage may have been done.

  7. Allow DirSync users to customise the Office 365 admin dashboard

    The new admin centre dashboard can not be customised if your user account is sync'd to Office 365 using DirSync. This has been confirmed by Microsoft after opening a support case reporting that changes wouldn't persist between page refreshes.

    It would be a much better experience if every admin could customise and save their own dashboard setup regardless of their user account with cloud-only or on-prem sourced.

    If this would involve too much work/time, could I suggest that the dashboard does not provide customisation options to DirSync users. I'm sure it would reduce support calls from people thinking something was…

  9. Making all hyperlinks blue and underlined or buttons

    The new Sharepoint look and feel would benefit greatly by making all hyperlinks blue and underlined, or buttons. It is so hard for users in our organization to navigate Sharepoint because half of the links in Sharepoint look like black headers or match the rest of the gray text that is not clickable. So much training has to happen over and over again because of this. I am a technically savvy person. I also work on the UI for our organization's website so I like to think I somewhat know what I'm talking about as I have researched the subject…

  10. Mail flow rules should graphically indicate whether a rule is submitted, rejected or active

    When creating new rules in Exchange Admin its not at all clear when the rules will become active and enforced. Need some indicator that the rule is now in effect.

  11. remove suffix in the subject from Office 365

    Dear Office 365 Product Group,

    We observed that in Office 365 side, we are unable to remove the suffix in the subject during the transportation. However, in the On-premises Exchange Edge server, we do have this feature. We do hope that we can add this feature in the Office 365 side.

    Looking forward to hearing from you. :)

  14. Change "List View Threshold" for a tenant seperately

    Currently we cannot change the List View Threshold for a tenant separately. It would be good if we can change the LVT for our tenant alone.

  17. Allow html email media queries to show correctly on Android and iOS

    When an html email with css media queries is received via Exchange Online and viewed on Android or iOS the media queries are disabled. When receiving the same email on the same mobile device via a separate IMAP account the media queries work fine.

    CSS media queries are really important for the correct layout of emails on devices with small screens such as smartphones.

    Why is Exchange Online stripping out this functionality? With an increasing number of people reading emails on mobile devices it is very surprising that Microsoft has not resolved this.

  18. Can you please add a functionality in visio to translate hand written text and hand drawn flowchart to a visio formatted flowchart.

    Can you please add a functionality in visio to translate hand written text and hand drawn flowchart in image file to a visio formatted flowchart. This would help design team to translate their flow quickly instead of typing and dragging over flowchart shapes from toolbox.please refer youtube link below as it takes less time to complete this flowchart.

    https://youtu.be/XIQKt5Bs7II

    For a touch enabled tablets,laptops and PCs, if visio can directly translate hand written content on touch screen , it will be easy for designers.

    Are these options already there in visio?

  20. Outlook Folders and Public Folders - Cannot recover previous versions?

    The ability of recover previous versions of folders is not available.
    Don't Merge or Update your contacts or you might not be able to recover them again.
    I can't believe that restore previous versions is a feature that is not available in Office 365... really Microsoft?
