  1. Disable an email address without having to archive the account

    There should be a way to simply disable an email address without having to remove it from the user profile or create a transport rule.

    When we have staff leave, we bump their mailbox down to E2 (free option for us) and hand out delegate access as required. In the meantime though emails still keep coming in.. emails which nobody may be checking or need.

    If there was an option to simply 'bounce emails' on a mailbox or user profile, that would really come in handy.

  2. Color code - cloud only groups

    When we're checking a users membership it would be good if there was an identifier (either colour or other) to easily distinguish between a group created in the admin or one that has synced up from our AD.

  3. Add features for O365, for giving share permission for Contacts.

    In O365 you can give permission to user for Shared calendar but don't have a feature to add permission for share contacts.

  4. Allow admins to change timing of full mailbox deletion from soft-delete

    Allow admins to adjust the tenant-wide time period for removing a soft deleted mailbox that was stripped of its O365 license. We have been burned multiple times now when converting a mailbox from user to shared, and then removed the license. Only to find out when going back to edit permissions that the mailbox is missing even though the user account still exists.

  5. Allow admins the ability to report on the local Sync storage status, as well as the cloud one for all users in the organization

    This would allow the Admin to see how much has synced from the local storage, and how much is left.

  7. Extend Public View in Office 365 Shared Calendar Beyond 180 Days

    Currently, if you share a calendar publically or with users at your organisation, they can only see up to 180 days in to the calendar, even when entries exist far beyond that.

    I work in a school and when trying to plan a school year this effectively makes the calendar useless for our needs. A simple increase from 180 days to beyond 365 (a little further if possible) would be all that's required.

  9. Sign-In Blocked Time Stamp

    We are a company of around 18,000 employees with lots of temps and interns. When someone leaves we need to keep their mailbox active for 45 days before we delete the O365 License. Currently there is no way to look in the portal to see how long the account has been blocked. Is there some way we could start recording that time stamp?

  10. create an easy to use tool for active directory synced groups and users, attribute editor, and LDP.exe make easy admin prohibitive

    I don't think I'm alone when I say, as an admin of a directory synced office 365 environment, it is prohibitively difficult to do simple admin tasks, that were pretty easy in common exchange admin. i.e. Hide groups or users from the GAL, add email aliases, limit send permissions to distribution groups, (i know how to do these things,yes) but it shouldn't take as much elbow grease as it does currently, a single too or plugin for ADUC would change the game in my opinion

  12. Fix User csv export report formats

    The Users > Active User > All Users report in the Office 365 admin center is not formatted correctly. Users that have a second address line (address 2) are bumped into the next row, causing all other data after to be shifted incorrectly. Please fix this bug my merging Address and Address 2, or adding another column for Address 2, so the other data is in the correct location.

  13. Block installation of SharePoint Designer

    When Office 2013 was still supported, one could block the installation of SharePoint Designer by clearing the box. Now that Office 2013 is no longer supported, that functionality does not work. The box is still there under Office 2016, but clearing it has no effect in the UI. The installer links are still there.

  14. Skype for Business Website Login for contact management

    It would be great to manage Skype for Business Contacts over a webpage. We are running a Skype for Business Account on a video conference system and it is horrible to add there a new contact.

  15. "UPDATE YOUR PAYMENT INFORMATION" HyperLink in the Notification email does not work

    "UPDATE YOUR PAYMENT INFORMATION" HyperLink in the Notification email does not work as it redirects to the payments method page in the Office 365 Admin Centre, however some browsers doesn't load the page correctly which it does otherwise when navigated to the same page and not through the hyperlink in the email.
    While in Edge, it gets to the page and the "Edit details" button needs to clicked multiple times to get it to work.

  18. easier access to customer services

    Took over 2 hours to get in contact with a customer service agent. I was cut off 3 times in total. Eventually found a help-chat link only to be directed back to the call line.

    Please can we have clearer contact information

  19. Need Outlook Customer Manager added to tenant

    I have a customer who is very interested in Outlook Customer Manager. We have upgraded his license to Business Premium but it doesn't appear to be available to him yet. By request of O365 support, they stated to put a message here to see if we can get it rolled out to his tenant. We have further opportunity to migrate and expand his use of O365 if he like Customer Manager. Initial domain is ModernBuilders.onmicrosoft.com
