  1. Secondary recycle bin when user license remove from O365

    I know there is a soft delete for deleted users. But i had a user that a license was removed and the mailbox gone completely. There should be a way of restoring it and assigning it back to the same user. Just like how SP online has a secondary recycle bin

  2. more than one subscription for the same service license type

    We have a subscription for Business Premium, paid annually, on a specific corporate card. I would like to be able to create a separate subscription for Business Premium, paid monthly, on a different corporate card. The billing options are conveniently customizable but why are we limited to one set of billing options for each license type?

  3. Add Ability To See My Apps In Dynamics 365 After Clicking On Grid System

    In Office 365, My Apps will be displayed but My Apps are not displayed in Dynamics 365 when clicking on the upper left hand grid. In order to see My Apps in Dynamics 365 you have to drop to the bottom of the apps listing and select All Apps. In other words, make the Office 365 apps display function operate the same way in Dynamics 365.

  4. Edit default ATP SafeLinks Policy with PowerShell

    The default Safelinks policy can only be edited from the EAC. When you have automated provisioning systems in place (like we have) you need to perform a manual action to turn the Office protection on. We would like to be able to do this through PowerShell as well.

  5. Fix the msExchHideFromAddressLists function when there is no onsite Exchange

    The requirement to have an Exchange schema extension in one's local AD when using AAD Connect to set this variable is burdensome. We don't want a ton of AD additions to set a mail object to be hidden or visible.

  6. Subtotals & Ordering


    1. When you do a subtotal the "at each change" is highlighted. Could the object of the subtotal also be highlighted especially when it is a sum? Could this be done in future issues?

    2. In outlook you can order by a variety of ways. At work I get so many e-mails and would like to order by "unread". Could this be done in future issues?

  7. Allow OneDrive and SharePoint to share files with anyone / any email

    Very frustrating that I need to use DropBox still to share files with outside parties that I want to share folders with. The reason the MS agent gave me was it was to help keep my documents safe. I don't need a nanny, I want to share and manage my files with whomever I want withouth having people sign up for Microsoft...exactly like DropBox. Please and thank you.

  9. Allow email protection rules to send notification to end user including header info such as sender address of blocked emails.

    Rules to block emails and send notification to recipient user needs to also include the sender email address. a simple notification that an email was blocked and notify sender doesn't give the user enough info. they need an email address included.

  10. Allow rights to be delegated for domain & DNS management.

    At the moment only Global Admins have rights to do this.

    If we give our AD team GA rights, they obviously have full control over all the products in O365.

    Our company needs to be able to segregate roles to only authorised personnel.

  11. Allow create rule to reply messages with a note to the original subject line

    The issue:

    When you create a rule to reply sender with a specific message it doesn't reply with the original message's subject line.

    Or

    Automatic Replies would not reply to multiple messages from the same sander.

  13. Alert new customers on the sign-up page that the initial ID "***@xxxxx.onmicrosoft.com" is used for Office 365 Admin's account

    Customers tend to get confused with the initial "***@xxxxx.onmicrosoft.com" account when they access to Office 365 for the first time right after signed-up tenants.
    This is because there is no notification or alert on the "Create your user ID" page to let customers know that it's going to be an initial Admin ID.
    Also, as it's too long for very new customers, they easily forget their Admin ID or memorize in a wrong spellings.
    It makes the customers sign-up again and request account validation.

  14. Local Outlook Settings stred in Office365

    Store local Outlook settings and configuration in Office365 to allow usage/magration on other computer:

    Now when installing a new computer, all settings have to be copied by hand or much scripting (Signatures, Macros, View Settings, Rules, Mailboxes...)
    This helps when a new PC will be setup because the old one is end of life or defect.

  15. Solicitud de columna de Last Logon en todos los informes de actividad de las aplicaciones de Office 365

    Cordial saludo

    Solicito amablemente colocar la columna de Last Logon en todos los informes de actividad de las aplicaciones de Office 365 (Exchange, Skype For Business, OneDrive and SharePoint).

    Debido a que nosotros hacemos un control de licencias con este Item, y seria mas facil sacarlo junto con los informes de actividad.

    A la espera de su pronta respuesta.

  16. service request - make it like a normal helpdesk system

    Hey Microsoft you've gone from one extreme on service request to another. Good bye overly complicated ticket the correct option from a bewildering supply of options, hello so basic it's useless. The new support option has no ability to provide detail of the issue and updates on a situation. Your support agents must be totally overloaded trying to get details on problems now. Why not just make a normal helpdesk system where the problem is described, can be updated and closed by the raiser. The cool self help search thing great but your exception process sucks.

  17. siem read-only

    With the growing threat landscape and movement of more and more applications to the cloud, Office 365 needs to provide us with a way to monitor things without adding yet another potential pivot point for malicious actors. There needs to be a global admin-level read-only account for exporting and reading events for SIEM and user behavior analytics (UBA) solutions.

  18. freetalk connect

    We have been using the FreeTalk Connect devices and a DualPhone for years with the traditional Skype service. This morning 6/1/2017, these devices stopped receiving all incoming calls however outgoing calls do function properly. We can still receive incoming calls via our cellphone app (android) or via the computer Skype app. We would like to know why it appears the ability to receive SkypeIn calls on the Freetalk Connect and DualPhone was disabled.

  19. About Office 365 Video

    On the page of Statistics in Office 365 video, the displayed number of “Watched” differs from the actual number of watched.
    I really want this will be improved in the nearly future.
