  1. 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.

  2. 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".

  3. Allow Microsoft 365 name servers to register A records for websites without static IP addresses

    I want to be able to register an A record for a website that doesn't have a static IP address on a Microsoft 365 name server.
    Microsoft 365 name servers can only be registered with a static IP address.
    In that case, you need to use a name server that can register a dynamic IP address.
    However, migrating the name server takes a long time to reflect the records, which greatly affects the service.

    I would like to implement it so that even a dynamic IP address can be set.

    Microsoft 365 のネームサーバーに静的 IP アドレスがない Web サイトのAレコードを登録できるようにしてほしいです。

    Microsoft 365 のネームサーバーは、静的…

  4. External users can't see the participants scheduled for the meeting

    As a method for external users to refer to the calendar of Exchange Online, there is an Internet calendar, etc., but since the participant information cannot be seen, please improve so that it can be seen.

    外部ユーザーが Exchange Online の予定表を参照する方法として、インターネット予定表などがあるが、参加者情報が見れないので、見れるように改善してほしい

  6. Hybrid Agent to support Public folder migration

    Hybrid agents are very simple, but they have many functional limitations.
    We can't do anything related to public folders, so you want to at least be able to migrate and access public folders.

  7. Allow us to create distribution groups for equipment like room list distribution groups

    We have the feature creating room list distribution groups now. But we cannot create exclusive distribution groups of equipment which can add only equipment; in order to add them, we have to use the normal distribution group.
    So, it would be great if we could create equipment distribution groups like room list distribution groups.

  8. When Guest Access is Enabled within Teams restrict this to specified Domains

    I've had to enable guest access within Teams to add external members to my Teams. I'd like to be able to restrict this to specified domains only to stop Team owners adding external users from other (non-approved) domains.

  10. DirSync should support the double-byte for the cn attribute for on-premise AD users

    When entering double-byte characters in the cn attribute of a user who is registered on the on-premise Azure Directory, and running DirSync, then the display name would be changed into the “_” and we cannot see the proper name. So, it would be great if the DirSync could support the double-byte character display for the on-premise users as well as we enter the double-byte characters into the cn attribute for Office 365 general users; their display name is properly shown.

  11. extend the remove-inboxrule cmdlet to clean all rules

    The remove-inboxrule cmdlet allows admins to remove rules set by users. However, if those rules are hidden then you need to go client side and use outlook.exe /cleanrules.

    From an admin perspective getting that done can be challenging. Particularly if the user can't use the command line or command line functions are locked down.

    A better option would be;

    remove-inboxrule -mailbox bob@contoso.com -cleanrules

    The cmdlet would replicate the /cleanrules on outlook and remove all rules, visible and hidden.

  13. Company Wide Holiday Calendar

    Be able to create a company wide calendar for use by all staff like a resource mailbox. This could be managed by a delegate or be open to all (like a Room).
    This would be available in the Outlook calendar folder list be any staff by default.
    Having a shared mailbox for all staff with the management of permissions is a pain to administrate.

  17. O365 message rule to block incoming emails with long email address

    We have observed that for a majority of the incoming phishing emails, it generates a long random strings of the sender email address. I guess its purpose is to hide the sender's domain because the sender address will be too long to be displayed on the Outlook client.
    Suggests to allow a rule to be created if the sender address exceeding N characters.

  18. For a number of cases, phishing email tends to foul the recipients by the sender's display name.

    Suggests to allow a rule to define a criteria by matching the pattern of the sender's display name. The display name is frequently used by the phishing emails to confuse the recipients, making them think it is a legitimate email. For example, the display name can be set to Microsoft Office 365 administrator.

  19. More secure MFA notification option in Microsoft Authenticator

    I've been using the Microsoft Authenticator for years working at a large business with the notification option - considering how many systems I need to login to every day, the notification option makes it much simpler in terms of UX to get into the systems that I need.

    Due to an increase in phishing attempts, it's been deemed that the notification option is now insecure - most likely due to someone clicking "Yes" without thinking.

    Could you please look to include a more secure option for the notification option that provides a code on the screen when logging in, and…
