  1. We would like the ability to add other mail servers to Outlook on the web.

    We would like the ability to add other mail servers to Outlook on the web, similar to Outlook on the desktop application.

  2. More secure MFA notification option in Microsoft Authenticator

    I've been using the Microsoft Authenticator for years working at a large business with the notification option - considering how many systems I need to login to every day, the notification option makes it much simpler in terms of UX to get into the systems that I need.

    Due to an increase in phishing attempts, it's been deemed that the notification option is now insecure - most likely due to someone clicking "Yes" without thinking.

    Could you please look to include a more secure option for the notification option that provides a code on the screen when logging in, and…

  3. Make it possible to allow character codes to be not garned without editing them.(文字コードを編集せずに、文字化けしないことを可能にする)

    When registering multiple users, Japanese is garcharized if you do not edit the character code of the CSV file.
    However, editing character codes is often complicated and fails.
    Therefore, I hope to implement the function to avoid garpus without editing the character code.

    [日本語訳]
    複数ユーザーの一括作成時に、CSV ファイルの文字コードを編集しないと日本語の文字化けが発生する。
    しかしながら、文字コードの編集の手順は複雑で失敗することが多い。
    そのため、文字コードを編集せずとも日本語が文字化けすることを回避できる機能を実装してほしい。

  4. Hide specific fields from the GAL

    Our organization which belongs to the Financial Services vertical is required to prevent data leakage and adhere to strict regulatory guidance. We require the ability to:


    • Hide or expose specific fields within Active Directory and the Global Address List in Exchange Online for specific people within our organization.

  5. Enable holiday calendar by default.

    Prior to the last major version upgrade, Outlook on the web displayed a holiday calendar by default.
    However, since the last major version upgrade, it is no longer displayed by default.
    This has led to a surge in inquiries about wanting the holiday calendar to be displayed by default.
    I want you to restore this function.

    This case is based on customer inquiries.

  6. Change message approval deadline for transport rules.

    There was such a description in the procedure number 3 of the following public information.

    Title: Manage message approval in Exchange Online
    URL: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/exchange/security-and-compliance/mail-flow-rules/manage-message-approval#how-the-approval-process-works
    [In Exchange Server, you can change this time period]

    I want you to implement this feature in Exchange Online as well.
    If possible, please allow infinite settings.

    By implementing this function, if the approver falls into a situation where the approver cannot approve it due to an unexpected situation, it becomes possible to wait for approval until coming to work.

    This opinion is based on customer inquiries.

  7. Service Health Status Page - Add next update time

    It would be good to add the next update time on the service health status page when there is an outage. So that people can check on time instead of keeping refreshing the page to seek an update from time to time.

  8. Office 365 Admin portal keeps on detecting Microsoft as default nameserver upon adding a new domain which is incorrect.

    Office 365 Admin portal keeps on detecting Microsoft as default nameserver upon adding a new domain which is incorrect. This is a bug as it happened to multiple domains already.

  9. Change default language of tenant

    After a tenant is created the tenant language cannot be changed. If the tenant was initialy created with the local language of the headquater of a company (not English) there is no possibility to change the language to the best fit for all users, e.g. English.
    That causes that automated mails are sent in the tenants language to users worldwide and that there are mails that have a mixed of languages.
    If should be possible to change the default languange of the tenant after the initial creation.

  11. Set the custom password at once when adding multiple users from M365 admin center

    It would be great if we could set the custom password at a time when adding multiple users from M365 admin center like we set the custom password when adding users at once by using PowerShell.

  12. Export New-ComplianceSearchAction results to target mailbox

    Given this situation, as a workaround, it is recommended to run following command to export the search result to .PST file and then you can import the .PST file to the target mailbox:

    New-ComplianceSearchAction -SearchName "124" -Export -SharePointArchiveFormat SingleZip

    After further confirm with our senior engineer, there is no corresponding TargetMailbox para in New-ComplicanceSearch to match the copy feature. We apologize for the inconvenience this issue has brought.

  13. Implement a feature to easily check the email usage

    Regardless of the shared mailbox and user mailbox, it would be great if you could implement a feature to easily check the mail usage instead of issuing O365 usage report or message trace.

  14. Function to convert to Text format when receiving the email sent from within the tenant.

    Remote domain exists as a function to change the format of email when receiving email sent from outside the tenant.
    However, there is no function to change the email format when receiving emails sent within the tenant.

    I want you to fill this gap.

    By implementing this function, if it is accidentally sent in HTML format or rich text format in the tenant, it will be possible to receive it in text format.

    This opinion is based on inquiries from customers.

  15. Adding guest users in the azure portal should associate guest users to the default domain in the tenant

    Currently when adding guest users in the Azure portal, it would associate guest users' address to the initial .onmicrosoft.com domain if they are not existing Office 365 users. It would be more convenient if guest users' will be associated to the default domain verified on the tenant even if they are not Office 365 users.

  16. Features to detect and check workflow errors

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    ワークフローのエラーを検知、確認する機能
    Features to detect and check workflow errors


    ■Description(内容):
    ワークフローで予期せぬエラーが発生した際、実行結果からエラーを確認することになります。
    実行毎に当該ワークフローからエラーを確認するのでなく、ワークフローのエラーを検知および確認ができる機能の拡充を希望します。
    ワークフローで事象が発生した際、事象の改善確認を行う場合などにおいて当該ワークフローの再実行が必要となり、本番環境に影響が及ぶため、ワークフローを実行せずともエラーを検知するような機能が実装されると利便性の向上が期待できます。
    When unexpected errors occur in workflow, users need to find the execution results to check for errors.
    We hope that features to detect and check workflow errors can be implemented instead of having to check the errors from the relevant workflow on every execution.
    When something happens in workflow, the relevant workflow needs to be executed again when confirming that the situation has improved etc, which affects the production environment. Therefore if a feature that can detect errors without executing the workflow is implemented,…

  17. Show Last activity date of Reports in JST in Microsoft admin center

    Currently, Last activity date is displaying the date in UTC only in Microsoft admin center (Reports > Usage > Email activity).
    But we would like to see the date not only UTC but also in JST.

  18. Allow us to create distribution groups for equipment like room list distribution groups

    We have the feature creating room list distribution groups now. But we cannot create exclusive distribution groups of equipment which can add only equipment; in order to add them, we have to use the normal distribution group.
    So, it would be great if we could create equipment distribution groups like room list distribution groups.

  19. Remove case sensitive searches for shared mailboxes and permissions

    Over the last month or so case sensitive searches have been added into the shared mailbox and permissions sections on the Office 365 admin page. Could these be reverted back or was there a reason for case sensitive searches being added?

    I had weeks of no results coming back until I spoke to Microsoft Support who also have the issue and they noticed it is now case sensitive.

  20. Allow Connect-ExchangeOnline cmdlet to take a Powershell Certificate Object

    The new Exchange Online PowerShell v2 Cmdlets are in public preview, and there's a new feature that allows for Connect-ExchangeOnline to take a path to a certificate as a parameter.
    However, when pulling down a certificate from something like Azure Key Vault or a similar service, especially in a serverless computing environment like Azure Automate, that certificate is often stored as an object, specifically, System.Security.Cryptography.X509Certificates.X509Certificate2.
    I think it would be useful for Connect-ExchangeOnline to allow for a parameter that allows passing it a certificate object so that the certificate file doesn't have to get written to a disk.
