  3. Global Admin and Billing Admin allowed to purchase services with one credit card

    One of my new Office 365 tenant does not allow Global Admins nor Billing Admins to make purchases unless a new credit card is attached using their account. This apparently is to enhance security but contrary to that, re-entering the same credit card for multiple user accounts means revealing information to many people. It would be better to have 1 main credit card linked and all Global and Billing admins allowed to purchase using that.

  5. Admin center feature - ability to remove user photo and set as blank

    Add ability to remove user photos on the admin center. As admin it is good to have this button added on the admin center to manage user photo just in case if they upload incorrect photo. Also help us to be able to set user photos as blank.

  7. Mail flow: not show as error automatic reply

    When the users have configured the automatic reply, the mail reply is showed twice in the mail flow. One of these as 'error' state even though it has been delivered successfully.
    This error misleads administrators thinking there is a real error.

  9. Allow payment methods from different countries

    Our Tenant is managed by one part of our organisation in one country, but we have a presence in other EU countries. The situation now is that one part of teh organisation has a short-term need for additional staff, so requires some pay monthly licences. We would like that part of the organisation to pay for these licences directly but we cannot add a payment method for it. Payment methods can only be added with an address in the country that the tenant is linked to.

    Suggestion: allow payment methods from countries other than the one the tenant is linked…

  11. Disable O365 profile photo updated when changed in Windows 10 2004 update User Account Settings

    With the new Windows 10 2004 May update. If a person changes their profile photo in Change Account Settings. Under Your Info, Create Your Picture, you can upload a new profile photo and it will also change the O365 profile photo. This happens even if you have the OwaMailboxPolicy -SetPhotoEnabled $false. Right now employees can overwrite the Company approved profile photos with their own.

  12. Improve Exchange policy violation detection "-" between the data makes Exchange policies to ignore sensitive data

    Exchange policies does not detect sensitive data, if there is a hyphen "-" between the data, resulting in possible serious DLP issues

    The problem is, that there are situations, when sensitive data are not detected, despite of enabled policies and despite having all the keywords, the reason is a hyphen "-" between the data

    Example: Debit/Credit card data policy settings at 65% of probability, violation detected:

    VISA 4556231178571114 11/22 066
    MASTERCARD 4916029094222076 12/22 375
    VISA 4485303555287086504 09/22 239

  13. Send licensing notifications to the user's SMTP rather than the UPN the license is assigned to

    When sending license assignment notifications to users, the email notification should be sent to the user's SMTP rather than the UPN that the license is assigned to. Currently if the user's SMTP and UPN do not match and the UPN is not routable for email, the user will not receive the email notification when they are assigned new licenses.

  14. Licenses from Multi Vendors cant be identified

    When you purchase Licenses from multiple Vendors, the Licenses is shown under the admin console as individual purchases, but when you click thru on the various licenses it just shows you ALL your vendors and not just the one which your purchased specific bundle from.

    so when you have to cancel some of the subcriptions it is unclear which vendor you need to send the instructions to.

    thanks

  20. Verify licenses used by devices like you can with users

    In the Microsoft 365 Admin console, the Azure portal, and with PowerShell you can lookup an individual user account and see what licenses have been assigned. With the implementation of device-based licensing, there should be an easy way to look up a device and verify that it has been assigned a device license.
