  1. Updates in SharePoint are overwritten during collaboration

    The issue occurs when multiple users are collaborating on a file and one (or more) user is disconnected from the internet. Once the user is reconnected, the user either saves an updated version (i.e., updates to the previously opened version) or saves (or auto-saves) the previous version. This will overwrite any updates made by other user(s) while the user was disconnected.

    Here’s an example that outlines the scenario:


    1. User 1 opens the file and views current version A.


    2. User 2 opens the same file and views current version A.


    3. User 2’s internet is disconnected while viewing version A (e.g., due…

  2. Disable mail function only

    For security reasons, I would like to block specific users from using email function. But at the same time, I would like to keep Word, Excel, and OneDrive access for those users. Please give us an option to keep the Office application access while blocking the email capability for certain users.

  4. Keep the New-MoveRequest cmdlt remained

    We are aware of the decommission of the New-MoveRequest cmdlt as per the message center announcement: MC206405, but we would like to keep using it. This cmdlet is very useful as a workaround for some problems such as the OOF delay on the room mailbox. So it would be great if you can keep it remained or provide us any other alternative method for New-MoveRequest.

  5. Bulk user import used to support commas in data

    Using the downloaded CSV template, we used to be able to have commas in data such as the address field (123 Main St., 5th Fl) but it no longer works. Please fix this.

  6. Search Existing Group Files for Attachments in SharePoint/Microsoft Lists

    Please enable the ability to search files within the Group as well as upload from ones computer when adding attachments to SharePoint/Microsoft Lists. Currently users are left with the option to either upload a file to the Attachments field from File Explorer or copy and paste a link from a Document in the SharePoint library in a separate Link field.
    This feature has been added to Microsoft Planner, as an example, and works very nicely in Planner Online and within Teams.

  9. Teams microphone icon color should change depending on if its been muted or active

    Hi!
    Since meeting attendees often fail to activate the microphone during meetings, it would be nice if the microphone colour could change color to for example green when activated and red when muted

  10. Allow custom characters for Plus Addressing

    Allow custom characters for the recently released Plus Addressing. Many cloud services and web forms do not accept the plus sign '+' as a valid email character. It would be great if we could change the plus to a custom character, like the underscore '_' which is accepted everywhere.

    Office 365 URLs and IP addresses are described in the document below, but it is not clear which functions URLs and IP addresses are related to.

    There are cases where it is difficult to register all the URLs…

  14. Option to disable "Popular Around Me" in OneDrive

    In OneDrive (on the web) --> Shared, there is a new section at the top of the page labeled "Popular Around Me".

    OneDrive admins should be able to disable this feature at the tenant level or per user or group.

    It currently cannot be disabled.

  16. Enable the NDR or quota warning message customization in Exchange Online

    It would be very useful if we can customize the NDR or quota warning message in Exchange Online like we do in Exchange Server on-prem by running Set-SystemMessage, so that we can leverage Exchange Online more effectively to meet our business needs.

  18. Enable DKIM for Office 365 Home with custom email domain

    The Office 365 Home subscription allows you to use your your own email domain. However, there is no option to enable DKIM and without it, outgoing email often ends up in the recipient's Spam folder, making the custom email domain capability useless.

    Please expose the DKIM setting on the UI for O365 Home subscribers.
    The feature itself is already implemented and available in the Business edition, but requires the Admin panel which does not exist in Office 365 Home.

  19. Allow ipv6 in connection filter

    When 3rd party email filtering systems are used in combination with ipv6 we can set an ipv6 address, but it's ignored for allow.
    This is troublesome because spf, dkim will fail, since the trusted ip is relaying the mail towards o365.
    Only workaround is now to use ipv4 only.
    This is not futureproof.
