  2. Provide Single Pane of Glass to manage all aspects of Microsoft Account

    Provide single pane of glass to manage Volume License, O365 user admin, Billing, and Subscription add/changes instead of using O365 Admin portal and MS Business Center portal, and Volume license portal.

  3. The ability to have folders for active users

    Would like to be able to put active users in folders on the 'active users' screen. Right now all active users are listed and we want to be able to break these up into sub folders.

  5. Register Teams as the chat app for Office (requires restarting Office applications) via admin portal

    As we are not yet in a position to migrate fully into Teams only mode we would like to enable Register Teams as the chat app for Office (requires restarting Office applications) for all of our users to ease migration. However the registry changes prove to be ineffective and the only option we have is to make the change manually from the users settings which is not a good option. Will this control ever be available for the admin portal in the very near future?

  7. make changes to prevent NDN when user has Forward setup on O365 email account

    When Notification email comes to O365 mail box and user has forward configured and error NDN is generated. This does not happy with other external message received. Need to implement DKIM , DMARC,for email.teams.microsoft.com. Or modify forward rules to overcome this issue. We have two domains which are linked to O365 and have setup DKIM on both of these. So no errors are attributed to that setup. Have had a case open for some weeks about this problem

  10. Admin Center Feature - Swapping User Photos

    The new Admin Center lost the ability to upload a user photo. Until recently, that was possible, and the old Admin Center still has this functionality. I'm not sure why this was removed, but it should be restored.

  11. Add a whitelist option to ATP Safe Links

    In Microsoft ATP Safe links, currently you can only block specific URLs from within a message.

    It would be much safer to offer an option to block * EXCEPT those url's that are in a whitelist of URLs.

    This would greatly increase the security and benefit of ATP Safe links (essentially allowing an admin to block ALL email links (or the list of), excluding those that are whitelisted.

    Currently there is no way to "whitelist" a set of URLs and block all.

  13. Admins should be able to disable expressions feature in Outlook on the Web

    When composing an email in Outlook on the Web, expressions allows you to search for gifs using Bing but the search returns are not all ways suitable for an educational environment.
    Due to this admins should have the ability to turn off Expressions for student users which isn't currently possible.

  14. Password Reset email recipients check name

    After resetting a password, there is an option to email the password to certain recipients. It would be nice to just type in usernames for users in my tenant and have that field "check name".

  15. I hope for a way to view the information for just Microsoft Graph API changes

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    Microsoft Graph API の動作変更を確認するコンテンツを要望します。
    I hope for a way to view the information for just Microsoft Graph API changes


    ■Description(内容):
    Microsoft Graph API ログの動作変更が行われる場合、事前に確認したいが、ロードマップや、メッセージ センターは情報量が多くまた、英語表記であるため作業コストが高くなる。
    Microsoft Graph API の情報に限定されていて、かつ日本語で情報を確認できるコンテンツを用意してほしい。
    I want to know beforehand whenever something is changed for Microsoft Graph API logs, but there is just too much information listed in the roadmaps and message center, and everything being listed in English makes operation costs expensive.
    I hope that a way to view just Microsoft Graph API information will be implemented, and make it so that it can be viewed in the Japanese language.

  16. Option to archive/delete all emails in a chain other than the latest from users mailboxes

    A number of users have a very high number of items in their outlook folders which can reach the limit or make for overly large mailboxes which is painful when migrating mailboxes. Users may have 100's of emails in the same chain and file away every single email when all that is needed for them to have a history of the conversation is the last email in the chain.

    I would like there to be an option which allows all but the latest email in a chain of emails to be archived, deleted or moved to a holding area before…

  17. Receive connector specification from Exchange Online has an error in the Admin UI

    We found a general error (and discrepancy) in the specification of a receive connector in Exchange Online (receiving mails from Exchange On-premises). In the list of connectors in Exchange Online, the connector's summary on the right hand side shows an "and" condition that has to be fulfilled to relay mails from on-premises. However, when editing the same connector, the text indicates, that only an "or" condition is required. Our tests indicate (and Microsoft support confirmed), that the technical implementation from Microsoft indeed only requires the "or" condition. This means that only one of the following conditions has to be fulfilled…

  18. Admin Roles with Filtered option for Domain based

    Sometimes there are some different domains under one Tenant. Why not add a domain-based filter in the exchange admin role? We want an admin to manage one specific domain. I think this feature is necessary.

  19. I want to set the "Select Account" screen not to be displayed on the Office365 sign-in screen

    〈Title〉
    I want to set the "Select Account" screen not to be displayed on the Office365 sign-in screen
    Office365のサインイン画面にて「アカウントを選択する」画面を表示されないように設定したい

    〈Details〉
    I want to set a new user ID and password every time a user signs in to Office 365, but other users' information remains.

    For example, there is a security problem when information about other users is left when a shared terminal is used or when a terminal is taken over.

    Therefore, it is desirable to implement a function that does not leave user information on the [Select Account] screen.

    ユーザーがOffice 365にサインインする時に毎回新規でユーザーIDとパスワードを入力するよう設定したいが、ほかのユーザーの情報が残ってしまっている。

    例えば、共有の端末を使用しているときや端末の引継ぎの際に他のユーザーの情報が残ってしまっているとセキュリティ上問題がある。

    そのため、[アカウントの選択] 画面に、ユーザーの情報が残らないような機能の実装を希望する。

  20. Archiving by pressing backspace is a trap

    We've had several users fall into the trap of Archiving by pressing backspace. Microsoft support recommend we change registry setting to turn this feature off. Is it possible to change this to something like shift backspace?
