  2. I want to use rules and folders for large messages on Outlook on the Web by default

    I want to use rules and folders for large messages on Outlook on the Web by default


    ■Description(内容):
    旧バージョンの Outlook クライアント アプリで存在した認識ですが、Office 365 上にOutlook on the Web にサイズが大きいメッセージを振り分けるルールおよびフォルダーの用意を希望します。
    既定で存在することでルール設定の漏れなどによる確認のトラブルも回避できると考えます。

    In older versions of the Outlook client app, it was possible to use rules and folders to organize large messages in Outlook on the Web on Office 365.
    If this functionality was available by default, we could avoid issues with mails being omitted due to rule settings etc.

  9. I want to check the cumulative transition of users who have started using each service for the usage status of each service.

    各サービスの使用状況について、サービスを利用開始したユーザーの累計推移を確認したい


    The current usage report only shows the number of users who used each service on the day of export.
    However, it is not possible to confirm the details of when and who started using each service.
    I would like you to be able to confirm the date when the user started using each service, and confirm and analyze the usage tendency of the user.

    現在の使用状況レポートでは、エクスポートした当日分で各サービスを利用したユーザーの数のみがわかる。
    しかし、いつ、だれが各サービスを利用し始めたかの詳細については確認ができない。
    ユーザーが各サービスを利用し始めた期日を確認し、ユーザーの利用傾向などについて確認や分析をできるようにしてほしい。

  10. access portal from desktop icon

    I want you to provide an Office app icon which can directly navigate me to Office portal by clicking it. This app is implemented in Windows, but not for macOS. What I exactly want to do is accessing O365 portal from more easily by using desktop icon.

  11. dept info in activation report

    Under active users I can see the dept info and title for each user pulled from AD, the issue is when I go under reporting and do activation check it shows the user display name but you are unable to show the dept that user is in, it would be helpful so monthly I can show "xyz user in this dept where given license but never activated"

  13. Improve Global Address Book Maintenance

    The import to set up and maintain the Global Address Book (GAD) very inconvenient. There should be a possibility to copy entries from a locally kept address book to the GAD easily, not via ex- and import with a CSV-file, which in my context (Office 2019, German settings) took hours to be solved.

  14. Add a SharePoint Online page to multiple Teams channel in bulk

    To be able to add SharePoint Online page to Teams is really convenient however what if there are several Teams channels where I need to add a specific SharePoint Online page to? It would be great if there's a capability to do it in bulk so the process would be a lot easier. Also as part of this, this should be able to remove them in bulk as well.

    メールアドレスや表示名が不明の場合は、追加するために作業工数が発生するため、一覧から選択して予定表を追加する機能の実装を希望します。

    When adding meeting room calendars to your own, you can do this from “Add calendar” – “Add from directory”, but you need to enter the mail address or display name.
    If these are not known, then it takes extra work to add the calendars, so please make it possible to choose calendars from a list.

  17. Support whitelisting based on passing DMARC

    Please add support to whitelist specific domains based on DMARC pass (straight to Inbox, bypass clutter/other). The current whitelisting options are to broad and open up too many potential messages.

    Transport rules to accomplish this won't scale due to ETR string limits.

    This allows us to guarantee delivery of external senders, but require the sender meet some DMARC standards to get the messages in.

  18. allocation of storage

    Allow to allocate onedrive storage to other services within the tenant.
    If we are not using Onedrive -- allows are to extend the storage for the mailbox without additional payment.
    I know google and other cloud service doesnt have this option either but it would be a great advantage if Office 365 will dive into this feature soon! Thanks!

  19. Make it possible to check Automapping on mailbox delegations.

    Either via UI or powershell.
    Currently it seems there is no way to check if a delegation is automapping or not.
