    Departmental shared contacts can not be accessed via Office 365 or by clicking the to: field in an email in Outlook client. We use our shared contacts for many things and this is a major inconvenience.

  3. The ability to identify subsets of email addresses by grouping.

    There is a need to administer email addresses that have been grouped together for a particular reason. This could be by department or location. In my case I need to group email addresses by age group of school students. The View facility is already available, but has very limited functionality. We just need the ability to Create a View, and then allocate email addresses against that view.

  4. Restore / Undo changes in "In-Place archive folders"

    Hello, there should be a feature in Office365 that would allow us admin to restore / Undo changes on the "in-place Archive" mailbox.

    Like if a certain user messes up with the online archive thing, us, the admin can just restore back the archive mailbox back to an early time (like system restore for windows OS) instead of wasting time trying to recover items manually.

  5. Avoid sending emails to all administrators

    When a change is made i.ex. in the number of licenses, an emails is send to ALL administrators - actually TWO emails is send; one for Office 365 and one to the Recovery email.

    I would like to avoid that!

    The second part of the problem (sending to recovery email) is in my mind an Error. The recovery email should be used only to recover password - nothing else!

  6. JunkMail auditing

    When users flag messages as Junkmail or a False positive, allow for Admins to audit messages flagged as such for their tenants.

  11. Option to view pages as specific permissions levels to confirm functionality

    It would be extremely helpful to view web pages as other permission groups see them to confirm function of links and features.

    Thanks for your feedback! Your idea sounds interesting, but we need more information.

    What is the task you would use this to accomplish with?

    Are you troubleshooting user issues with accessing content?

    Are you setting up sites or authoring content and want to make sure the right people can access them?

  12. Team Sites Audience timer

    Increase the timer service for Audiences.

    Having it once a week is frustrating and limiting especially when setting up new sites and adding new users.
    Get it wrong and you have to wait another week to see any changes, and to see if it's working as you expected.
    At least once a day would be good.

  14. Administrator should be able to limit download of OneDrive for Sharepoint App to end users.

    Currently, administrator can limit download of software by following the steps below.


    1. Open O365 admin center.

    2. Click [SERVICE SETTINGS] - [User Software].

    3. Uncheck in [Manage user software through Office 365].

    But, there is no option for "OneDrive for Business Client App".
    We should add option for "OneDrive for Business Client App".

  15. Provide Send/Receive Email Address Only for Users

    We have several contractors who work for us. We need them to have a company send/receive email address for corresponding with clients. We need a way to issue them an email address without purchasing Office 365 licenses for them? I don't need them to use Office and SharePoint and all the other apps in Office 365, they just need a send/receive email address.

  16. Allow undeliverable emails to be automatically forwarded

    I would like to be able to autoforward undeliverable emails that are sent to me. For example: If some tries to send an email with a typo, say using Erik@abc.com instead of Eric@abc.com, I want the message to be sent to Info@abc.com instead of being returned as undeliverable. I would like to be able to send any undeliverable emails sent to @abc.com to the Info@abc.com so that someone can review them and make sure that the valid emails are sent to where they should go.

    This functionality is available for a small email provider called Network Solutions that I…

  17. PLEASE enable the "sort by to" function in the web-mail for sent items

    I found several different threads where individuals are all having this problem and after 2 years its still not enabled despite individuals who commented saying that they were working on a solution... Not sure why this is such a difficult piece of the puzzle, but it has been a pretty important feature for me before the upgrade. I am pretty surprised that it is not included and more surprised that after so much time it is still not added. Please work on this for us...I don't have a choice of what to use, please make web-mail fully functional as the…

  18. Add links to admin shortcut (Office 365 admin center > Dashboard) to set up mailbox clients

    The first thing people would like to do after setting up Office 365 is set up their mailboxes to test. I understand there are videos but it would be nice to get the shortcuts right on the first screen: i.e. Setup Outlook, Setup ActiveSync, Using OWA, etc.

  19. Download full inbox via web prior to terminating employee inbox

    It adds an extra level of effort when an employee leaves the company and we have to manually archive & download their entire inbox. There should be a way to allow for an inbox to be downloaded prior to terminating the employee's inbox.

  20. Allow SharePoint or Security groups with external emails to receive Alerts per Group

    I would like to setup a SharePoint site where I have assigned a group of external users to receive alerts from a library. Reason being if a user leaves the project for some reason I can pull them from the group which will the automatically pull them from the Alerts of the site.
