  2. Give me the choice whether to automount an Exchange account when I give someone full access to another's account

    When I give full permissions to a user to someone else's user account, automounting that account should not happen by default, opening in Outlook, causing it to sync. I should need to either check or uncheck a box on that same permissions screen for automounting. Forcing me into powershell for something so simple is a waste of time/energy, and allows for greater chance of error.

  4. Give admins the ability to reduce the In Place Archive size with PS

    Please restore the ability for admins to manage the mailbox archive size. Why would I want to move from on-premise exchange where I can manage the archive size to an environment where my users have 100GB that I cannot control? Please bring back this functionality.

  5. Get-MessageTrace - Stop paginating the results.

    Get-MessageTrace used to return all results but it was changed in favour of paginated results. Please put it back to how it used to work.
    Failing that, if I am exporting the results to a CSV, how about ALL the results get exported rather than having to run the command X amount of times depending on the number of pages available.

  7. Get Rid of the Version & Login Confusion PLEASE!

    So there is now OneDrive for Business and Personal. Skype Business and Personal. You either sign in as a business user or a school user. Do you have a Microsoft Account, Personal Account or Business Account? If you are a business user, click these 70 login buttons and spin on your head 6 times and maybe we will let you login. And make sure you have 3-4 Microsoft accounts because it's impossible to just have 1 sign in for all your services like everyone else.

    I simply don't understand how difficult it is to keep things SIMPLE. How hard can…

  8. Add column on Active Users pane to show the license type assigned

    Please add a column on this page to show the license type assigned, as clicking through each user one by one is very time consuming.

  9. Ability to show a list of all User Alerts on all Sites and SubSites

    Users, and I as an Admin, would like to be able to 'quickly' see all Alerts that they have signed up for across ALL SITES AND SUBSITES with one click. As it stands now, they - and I have to go in site by site, subsite by subsite.

    And while I am aware there are several 3rd party tools out there, I feel this should be an OOTB feature.

  10. Enable Split View in SharePoint Admin Center to distiguish PWA-Site from Site Collections at a glance

    It’s much more comfortable to identify all Site Collections with PWA Feature using such a split view than checking all existing Site Collections using “Project Web App”. This view existed in a previous Online Version (see Brian Smith Blog http://blogs.msdn.com/b/brismith/archive/2012/12/11/project-online-how-do-i-re-use-an-unwanted-pwa-instance.aspx) and was totally removed from SharePoint Admin Center :-(

  11. storage quota email non admins

    Currently the only option for quota alerts is to email the site admins. We have separate accounts for our admins to manage o365 and they dont look at that email. It would be nice to be able to put a distribution group or email address in as the location those alerts go to.

  12. Allow administrators to manage every email feature globally within their domain.

    Although many features and settings are available for management by the Global Administrator(s), Clutter is not one of them. Please ensure that any enhancements are manageable by the administrator.

  14. Identify mailboxes affected when there is an Exchange outage

    It would be great if when I put in my domain, a list of mailboxes affected by a database, server, data center outage would be listed. I don't like depending that an outage will resolve an issue and I don't waste time troubleshooting a client when the issue is caused by the outage.

  15. Email only for non-critical service requests

    For non-critical service requests it would be nice if when we submit a service request for the option to have correspondence only via email. Sometimes people have schedules which cannot sit at a traditional desk with an office phone for 1/2hr to an hour for answers that can be accomplished via a single sentence or two in email.

  17. Expose more user attributes via powershell

    add PowerShell command to set all users default logon page for offic365. while your at it, add all the settings that are feasible.
    currently users are getting sent to outlook.office365.com and they receive an error page that doesn't allow them to change settings. and it doesn't even give them a link to go to portal.office365.com/home. I would like to fix this for all users instead of taking calls and walking them through it. fixing the error page would be a quick and easy thing to do to add a "Home" url to the error page. that should take like 2…

  18. Make OneDrive Easy - Not Complex Like It Is Now!

    I don't understand why OneDrive is so hard to install and use compared to Google Drive? All you have to do with Google Drive is install the very easy to use installer and pick your directory and files and you are done. OneDrive requires you to have specific versions of Office installed and if you don't have the exact version, it won't install.

    Getting your shared directories to sync is overly complex compared to other products and it's just too dam difficult to install and use. Why can't Microsoft simply make it as easy as Google Drive so I can…

  19. Removal of partners in the CC list

    We previously had a partner's email address linked to our subscription and so every subscription change would have him in the CC list which is fine. But after we separated from the partner and removed his email address from the partner relationship, his email still shows up in the subscription. Have checked with Microsoft support several times and they confirm that this is a bug, no way to remove the email address now. Do fix.
