  1. Clear logout from Admin main page after idle session timeout

    Please configure the Admin Portal to make it clear your session has timed out--like revert to user prompt--before a manual page refresh.

    When I'm on my bank's website and my session times out, it kicks me out. It is obvious I am no longer logged in. The same for any shopping site that has an idle time out. Not so for the Admin Portal. You don't find out you're timed out until you try to do something, like search for a user. Then the site cycles and wiped what you've just typed in. Sometimes it prompts for a user the…

    • allow users without Office 365 accounts to access the calendar by following a link with no login or password needed

      Working in a LTC home we would like to be able to use the room booking feature, however not everyone in our organization uses Office 365.

      We currently have to pay for Team Up as well as Office because Team Up allows us to create links and specify not only what calendars they can see, but also controls how much info and if they can add only, modify only or view only. I think this is something simple that would for us, make life a lot easier!

      Right now we have to book it in our 365 calendars AND then…

                  • have a dropdown option in the GAL for nested distribution lists

                    For nested distribution lists, have a dropdown in the global address list which shows just the nested groups (and not the individual users) so the user can simply click on a plus sign on the parent distribution list in the GAL and choose the nested distribution list.
                    and
                    make the "notes" field editable in powershell for AD synced distribution lists. (they are currently editable in o365 groups)

                      • Service Health Dashboard accessible and personalized for all users

                        Office 365 has a status page https://status.office365.com

                        However, it only seems to be accessible for admin portal users.

                        Request: make it accessible for all Office 365 users.
                        After login, it shows affected services for logged in organization (including Teams, SharePoint...)

                        Great examples are Azure and Azure DevOps's public status page & history:

                        - https://status.dev.azure.com/

                        - https://azure.microsoft

                        Azure DevOps also provides a personalized dashboard.

                        Also, the RSS feed for status changes is very useful to provide alerts.

                        Business case: currently, only admins can access this information, which slows down troubleshooting and causes unneeded tickets.

                              Working in Microsoft Teams it is needed to be able to make comments in the same PDF-file (online) like we can do in Word and Excel-files, so the team can see each others comments, and add their comments in the same PDF (without having to download and upload, which will result in several PDFs, and will not be very efficient). How can we make it work?

                                • Demand to create an alert event such as "Failed user login"

                                  Hi,

                                  We would like to ask a demand to create an alert event such as "Failed user login".

                                  At the moment, you can't create such an alert activity as this because such a category/event doesn't exist in the list. This point has been confirmed to us by O365 support.
                                  The only way to see such an event is throufgh the security and compliance center by auditing an account manually.

                                  In circumtances such as brute force attack or attempt to hack an account, it will be extremely useful for an admin to receive such an information to take appropriate action.

                                  Thank…

                                  • Make Recent Folders available in Quick Access in the Save As dialog box

                                    Please (re-)enable the ability to link to Recent Folders in the Save As dialog box. Windows 7 had it - immensely helpful, one of my favorite features. I'm stunned to find it is not available in Windows 10, Save As. For a busy office moving from project to project and program to program, and with layers and layers of client folders to navigate through to find the right Save As location, Recent Places in Windows 7 was an incredible time-saver. No matter where the dialog box opened to in Save As, I could hit Recent Folders and find the current…

                                    • Support ticket invalid phone number format not indicated

                                      When I go to open a service request by phone the page does not indicate that my phone number is in the wrong format so I had to figure out why it wasn't enabling the call button myself. I'm sure this would be very confusing to many people. It uses the phone number off my AD profile but does not indicate it's validity therefor it's not immediately apparent why the call button is disabled. Can we get this fixed and get guidance on recommended formats?

                                        • Microsoft To-Do make daily calendar printable

                                          Even in today's tech world some people need/prefer to have a paper To-Do list. I think it would be a great idea to be able to print out a copy of My Day tasks.
