  1. Block all self-service purchases for ALL services in perpetuity.

    This User Voice: https://office365.uservoice.com/forums/273493-office-365-admin/suggestions/38878723-ability-to-block-self-service-purchase-capabilitie
    gives the ability to block self-service purchases for individual products.

    Can we also get the ability to disable self-service purchasing at a global level, including for any new products added to it in the future?

  2. To increase the daily recepient rate limit in Exchange Online

    I had a common mailbox which constantly require to sent out more than 10000 message per day. Is there any way we can increase the daily recipient rate limit in Exchange Online ? E.g. increase to 60000 or more.

  3. Set the specific administrator as recipients of the password reset request email

    It would be great if tenant admins could select the recipients of the password reset request email from users. Because if there are multiple admins who have the same admin roles in a tenant, recipients in the To or CC line the request email are automatically and randomly selected. So, we don’t have control on who will receive the request and perform the password reset.
    I think we need to have a feature that allow admins to set the specific admins in charge of resetting password as the recipients for the password reset request email.

  4. Federated O365 search

    Enable the capability to provide federated search RESULTS in O365 without a hybrid scenario. Cloud only organizations want to combine results from other websites, wiki platforms, or other external data locations into the search results produced in their O365 environment (especially SharePoint Online).

  5. Calendar view

    Outlook Web Version Calendar doesn't support 15 minute of meeting box size so it looks like it is 30min meeting. This cause confusion as it doesn't show the exact time.

  6. Trace Messages Delivered Via EWS

    Currently messages delivered into O365 using Exchange Web Services do not show up in the message tracing logs. There is no way to verify delivery of these messages. We need to add the ability to trace all messages delivered into the tenant regardless of mode of delivery.

  7. Retrieve the calendar items for all objects in the tenant

    I would like to retrieve the calendar items info for all objects in the tenant at once.

    It would be better if we could retrieve the calendar items info at once such as all users or meeting room; we could get them individually now.

  9. When exporting content search results, convert them to CSV files without using the “eDiscovery Export Tool”

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    コンテンツ検索結果をエクスポートした際に "eDiscovery Export Tool" を使わずに CSV ファイル化したい。
    When exporting content search results, convert them to CSV files without using the “eDiscovery Export Tool”


    ■Description(内容):
    会社の規定などにより、端末側でアプリケーションのインストールを禁止している場合、"eDiscovery Export Tool" のインストールができないため、エクスポート結果を CSV ファイル化できない。
    "eDiscovery Export Tool" を使わずにコンテンツ検索結果をエクスポートする機能の実装を要望します。

    According to company regulations, the installation of software is prohibited on staff machines, and so because one cannot install the “eDiscovery Export Tool”, the exported results cannot be converted into CSV files.
    Please add a way to convert exported content search results to CSV files without using the “eDiscovery Export Tool”.

  10. 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.

  11. Disable "Wipe Data" button for Exchange Connected Devices

    We want to limit who has access (like a help desk tech but permit an admin) to the "Wipe Data" button for Exchange Online mailbox connected devices. I was able to restrict this in 2016 via a custom role and tried the same in Exchange Online. I opened a support ticket to address this in Exchange Online. Their results were the same and suggested this to be posted.

  16. Provide history of accumulated user reports found in the summary of UsagePortal

    The Usage Report Summary changes every 48 hours. It will be best if we can have a history of its report.

  17. Reduce the data sync time when changing the email address or mailbox info

    When we modify an email address or display name, the modified data would not be immediately reflected to the global address book. It takes so long, so please immediately sync the modified data to the address book. Or it would be great if you could shorten the time to get the modified data reflect on the GAB.

  18. Prevent certain file types from being uploaded to SharePoint document libraries, including personal OneDrive sites.

    Currently admins can only prevent file types from sycning in the OneDrive desktop client. Admin should also be able to prevent the same file types from syncing in SPO document libraries and OneDrive through office.com. Blocking upload of file types from the desktop client is useless if a user can just visit OneDrive through the web browser and upload the same file through this method (and through Teams).

  19. Admin controls required for New Feature: SharePoint Auto Digest Email MC215356

    SharePoint auto digest email for SharePoint News is rolling out, but only the users themselves can unsubscribe. This is extremely inconvenient, we have customers who have thousands of users with active SPO licenses awaiting training and adoption activities. Their first introduction to SPO will now be a pointless weekly spam message from their new system.
    SharePoint News is not actively used in all tenants either, pushing the feature like this might be disruptive to adoption plans and governance established. Please provide admin control over this feature.

  20. We request the function to normalize the mailbox synchronization process from the management center.

    Mailbox information may not be displayed in "Direct search" or "Contact suggestions".
    Therefore, we request the function to normalize the mailbox synchronization process from the management center.

    <日本語訳>
    メールボックスの情報が、"ディレクトり検索" や、"連絡先候補" に表示されない場合があります。
    そのため、管理センターよりメールボックスの同期処理を正常化する機能を要望します。
