  1. Allow admin to transfer OneDrive Content of a terminated user to another user... Just like G-Suite Google/Drive does

    Allow admin to transfer OneDrive Content of a terminated user to another user... Just like G-Suite Google/Drive does.

    When we handle a termination of a user on G-Suite, it takes me 2 seconds to x-fer their mail and Google drive/docs to their manager. When we handle a termination on the MS offering - it takes 2 DAYS!!! I have to give myself permission to their one drive and mailbox and manually export content, only to then re-upload it to the new users drive/mailbox.... YUCK!!!!

    Additionally - any shared links to content in their OneDrive are now broken. In Google when…

  5. Exclude Gmail Folders/Labels via IMAP Data Migration

    I have done several migrations from G Suite to Office 365 over the years.

    The Data Migration tool under the Office 365 Portal->Setup-> Data migration is very handy to simplify an IMAP migration (vs using the Exchange Admin and a CSV file + Migration batch etc), but from my experience is limited with respect to excluding certain folders (or labels in Gmail's case) from being migrated to Exchange.

    For example, GSuite/Gmail by default has labels such as "All Mail", "Starred", "Important", "Spam", and "Trash". Email in the All Mail folder/label will be migrated across, even though it'll also reside in…

  6. Block OWA Auto-forward with Exchange Transport Rule

  7. Prevent automatic creation of mailbox in hybrid with Exchange Online license

    A way to stop automatic creation of mailboxes when Exchange Online license exists. In hybrid environment this leads to mailboxes in cloud with no on premises AD attributes. AzureADSync does not write them back to AD on premises!

  10. Outlook forwarding setup (O365 vs EAC)

    Hi Microsoft,

    We notice this synchronization issue from Outlook forwarding function.

    We understand there are few ways to do it, via O365 Outlook portal and via O365 Exchange Admin Console. But I notice that whatever forwarding that was setup in O365 Outlook portal will not be sync to EAC.

    We notice the issue when some email accounts was de-activated and some email accounts received bounce-back errors because there were forwarding setup done under O365 Outllok portal but we cannot find it in EAC.

    EAC settings and configuration are for Admin purpose

    O365 Outlook portal settings and configurations are for Actual…

  16. Enable external embed links from M365 tools (e.g. PowerPoint, Excel, etc.) into other external sources

    As a public school district, we promote Microsoft tools for use with our students and staff. As a M365 licensed organization, we continually run into comparisons with Google’s offerings from various individuals.

    We have many faculty members who have started to leverage Microsoft Office Online tools more (Word, Excel, PowerPoint) and needing to embed these files in third-party learning tools like our learning management system (LMS) Canvas. Faculty use the sharing and embed codes provided in Office Online and then try to embed these files (namely PowerPoint) in Canvas and while it looks like it works, students are unable to…

  18. Don't Display Site Collection Admins as document owners in the manage access pane

    End users should not be able to see a list of their site's site collection administrators. On a modern site, when you click to view members, you only see the standard groups and their users. However, when you select any file or folder in a library, then view the manage access pane, you will see all site collection administrators listed as Owner's of that file. This causes users to feel uneasy when they don't recognize the names of admins or generic service accounts.

    Please stop displaying site collection admins in the manage access pane!

  19. On the "Purchase Services" page, some products are displayed multiple times.

    On the "Purchase Services" page, some products are displayed multiple times, for example "Visio Plan 1" and "Visio Plan 1" at two different prices. But when the user selects "Compare" or "Details", no difference is shown. It is not until the Checkout page that the user understands the difference between the plans (annual commitment or no annual commitment). Either have each plan shown only once on the "Purchase Services" page with the lowest price ("starting at"), or explain the different prices on the page.
