  1. Add the ability to determine last sign-in date for O365

    I am deploying to 45,000. I have very low adoption rates and would appreciate a way to tell who has not signed in to portal.office.com. I know you can use PowerShell to see the last sign in date to exchange, but many of our users do not have exchange licenses by design. If I knew who had not signed in, I could target those user and engage them to get them to adopt. I could also use it as a mechanism to cleanup old accounts that haven't been used in X days.

  2. Allow for DNS administration vis PowerShell or REST

    We are using Office 365 as our DNS.  I've been doing DNS administration using the Office 365 portal and that works just fine.  However, I would like to script/automate some of it.  Specifically, I would like to be able to add/update/delete "A" and "CNAME" records from a script or an application.  I've found good Office 365 REST APIs for a number of things, but not for DNS administration.

  3. For the last one month all the admins have been driven crazy by the constant notifications that a subscription is ending.

    For the last one month all the admins have been driven crazy by the constant notifications that a subscription is ending. We know. You do not need to ping us on EVERY webpage. It is very disruptive having the pop up appear on every webpage. MS Support says there is nothing they can do to stop the notifications and we need to escalate it to the product group. Please enable some way to stop the notifications.

  4. Allow the admin to keep the business Title empty

    One of our requirement is to keep the job title blank, We had job title and I removed it 2 months back, Still I could see Job title. I got official confirmation with Microsoft support saying that "Job title" Can't be null, I'm confused now, If you really want to make it mandatory you could have mad Job title as "Required field", what is use of keeping it optional field and not allowing null over there

  8. In the Microsoft account, insert a field for notes in the keys

    In Microsoft account "Office.com" a notepad would be helpful. If there are several keys, it will otherwise be confusing.

  10. Kalender

    Ich möchte gerne dass man global einstellen kann, dass der Kalender auf "Alle Details" freigegeben ist. Und dass man dies bei einem Office 365 E1 auch inline einstellen kann dass dies freigegeben ist.

    ules limit is ridiculously low and not user friendly. Fix it! Honestly Outlook 365 is a disaster! typical microsoft to try it out on customers. The only system software that cannot load emails on iphones. I have wasted many hours helping train your people that have no idea what they are doing. The ones that do don't address the many limitations of this faulty disaster. If they did it would take all night. No software with any host or online has so many problems. My recommendation to anyone with a business is to Run Forest Run. This system is the…

  14. Disable Calendar with MAPI Connection

    Admin User wants to restrict user that they do not use Calendar in the Outlook Client.
    User can use Mail, People, and Calendar by connecting protocol “MAPI” in the Outlook Client.

    It would be an ideal situation that Admin User can modify MAPI protocol to disable Calendar function in the Outlook Client.

    This feedback is based on a customer voice from support SR.

  17. Allow us to re-sync mailboxes we have already synced once so that we can upload mailboxes but finalize them when we're ready to

    I am in the process of migrating mailboxes in a hybrid environment and I have found that it can be rather daunting to learn that once you sync a mailbox that it will not allow you to 're-sync' it if you did not finalize the migration straight away.

    It would be a huge help during the transition phase if we can sync mailboxes with Exchange online, allowing us to upload the bulk of users mailboxes and then 're-sync' them to migrate any new emails since the initial sync so we can finalize the move at any time.

    As it stands…

  19. Make your Error Messages less insulting

    The error message for Teams is insulting. I enabled Teams for our Office 365 Small Business Premium some 18 hours ago

    But not only did I receive no notification as to how long I might have to wait to be provisioned, but when I connected to Teams.Microsoft.com

    I got the obnoxious Message

    "YOU ARE MISSING OUT!!!
    Enable Microsoft Teams for your Company"

    well number 1 - I already HAD enabled it.

    2 - Telling me I'm "missing out" while I'm waiting an indeterminate time to get provisioned is frankly obnoxious

    And of course not telling me that provisioning might take…
