  1. Implement a feature that quarantine messages except the messages from the specific domain

    I would like to quarantine e-mails except the messages from specific domains. Because we cannot achieve this by using transport rule due to the character limits when adding other domains as exceptions.

  3. A feature to prohibit users changing their password

    I want admins to manage user password but if users can change their own password by themselves, admins can’t possibly know them. It would be great if you implement a feature to prohibit users changing it.

  4. MFA app notifications to show IP address and location the prompt generated from.

    Inside the Microsoft Authenticator app, when a user gets prompted for approve or deny MFA, there should be information around the location and the IP address that generated the prompt. Example: User is in Auckland,New Zealand and the prompt was generated because credentials being tried in Ireland, the user should see that prompt is from Ireland and the public IP address its coming from. Users can then report fraud or deny with a more informative decision.

  5. Implement a feature that can retrieve device information for which used when sending mails in Extended report of Message trace log

    We would like to identify devices which are using Office 365 apps or authenticating through AzureAD in case of when addressing security incidents. We can identify the device used when signing in by navigating to Audit log search > Intune, but it would be more convenient if you could include device information of a sender in Message trace log when investigating mail deliveries.

  6. Change default language in Sharepoint (OneDrive)

    For an international company, it is important to define the company language (e.g. English) as the default language. Unfortunately, when initializing O365, the language is set according to the location (in our case "German"). This is devastating because all SharePoint pages (including OneDrive) are subsequently created in "German". This should at least be pointed out.
    Unfortunately there is no possibility to change the default language afterwards. The workarounds with multi-language support are not satisfactory. Nevertheless, German continues to dominate in many areas

    Please point out the importance of the language during the initial setup and give the possibility to select…

  7. allow guest users to change their own settings, such as phone number in Multi-Factor Authentication

    ゲストユーザーが多要素認証の電話番号などの独自の設定を変更できるようにする

    General users can change settings in Multi-Factor Authentication, but guest users do not have this feature.
    一般ユーザーは多要素認証の設定を変更できますが、ゲストユーザーにはこの機能がありません。

    I want you to add the function that can be set by guest users.
    ゲストユーザーが設定できる機能を追加してほしい。

  8. Want to see incidents for the past one year

    We would like to see incident history for the past one year rather than past 30 days that we can currently see.
    We would like to check the trend of incidents or review the alternate methods when an incident occurs to address it with our customer.

  10. Hybrid Exchange Scenario - Replace Server with Lightweight Tool

    Understanding that there is a requirement to keep an Exchange Server on-prem solely to administrate user account, can MS not release a lightweight client that can be installed on a DC or FileServer instead of requiring a full blown installation of Exchange that has to be maintained. In my eyes it should be like the AD Connect tool / Hybrid tool that updates on the fly, and allows all management functions.

  11. Provide us an easy way to manage users shown in the GAL

    Certain users can set address book policy to show specific user in the GAL, but when you set more conditions, you have to create more address policies. Since its process is complicated and the address book policy has its limit on the maximum number of policies, I would like you to provide us an easy way to manage users in the GAL.

  12. Using a wildcard when specifying the sender address in the Message trace condition setting

    You cannot use a wildcard when specifying the sender address in the Massage trace condition setting at this moment.
    Our tenant users are getting spam mails from the different mail addresses which are using random numbers in the part of the address.
    So, if we could specify the sender’s mail address such as @.contoso.jp, we will be able to understand the impact of tenant users.

  13. Tenant-wide LOCALE setting for SharePoint

    It's nice that Microsoft have added the ability to have a TIMEZONE setting - for the entire tenant.

    https://office365.uservoice.com/forums/273493-office-365-admin/suggestions/6835268-tenant-wide-time-zone-setting-for-sharepoint-at-l

    BUT - there's no way to set the 'locale'. This is in the regional settings for a SharePoint site.

    And so I still have to go to each - and change to "English (Australia)" - otherwise I get the (only American) date format 03/29/2019

    WHY didn't this get added with the 'tenant wide timezone' setting ??

    I'm a bit surprised - it would have been easy to add LOCALE at the same time ??

  14. Disable the Security defaults switch by default

    We may encounter a sign-in problem for the newly created tenant if the Security defaults was enabled by default which can be set via Azure Active Directory admin center > Properties > Manage Security defaults > Enable Security defaults. So, to avoid this problem, it would be great to set the option as No by design.

  16. Need the ability to turn off "Notify my team" feature for document library upload

    When uploading a document to a SharePoint library in "Modern Experience", the "Notify my team" option appears. We need the ability to turn this off because it triggered notification to all groups and/or users that have permission to the library. The groups can contain hundred of thousand of users causing hundred of thousand notification emails to be sent out to O365 organization. This is causing major business disruption. We would like to avoid this disruption by turning "Notify my team" feature. According to this tech community article (https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/SharePoint/Modern-Library-quot-Notify-your-team-quot-option-after-upload/td-p/220338), there is currently no way to turn off this feature.

  17. Report showing SharePoint user activity per site collection

    It’s currently possible to get tenant-wide reports from SharePoint for user activity, and for site collection activity, but I need a combination of the two: user activity broken down per site collection.

    Here’s the use case: here at UC Berkeley, most of our SPO users are members of more than one Site Collection. We’ve got a large number of Site Collections we suspect are not being used, or are only being used by a very small number of people.

    However, we can’t confirm that unless we can get a breakdown of which users are using which site collections.

    In other…

  18. Disable auto-deletion of calendar updates containing non-time updates

    Current behavior in Outlook 2016/2013, as well as O365 OWA when an existing calendar appointment is updated with a text change, or attachment addition is for the appointment to be auto-updated, and the update message to be sent to the deleted items. This causes users to miss vital calendar updates.

    I have opened a case with Microsoft, and was told that there is no way to modify this behavior from either the client or admin portal.

    I suggest either adding a client option (to Outlook or OWA) to disable this behavior (so ALL calendar modification messages show in the inbox,…

  20. Usage Report - More Apps (OneNote!)

    Usage Report - More Apps

    Please could we support more applications in the Admin O365 Usage Report? It would be great to be able to measure and visualise our org's adoption of apps such as OneNote, Forms and Flow. Existing apps like Excel, Word and PowerPoint would also be really useful to measure.
