  1. Make is possible to change tenant name in Office365

    Iv realized that there is no option to change the tenant name in Office365.

    This would be a great tool for businesses that change their name and want to keep their current solution in Office365.

    A simple task like changing the tenant name for Office365 would save businesses allot of time.

    • Allow the admin to pin custom tiles to the app launcher for all users in the tenant

      With the newly released update it is now easy for an admin to add a custom tile to the My Apps page. However, as an admin you still can't add this custom tile to the app launcher for any user except yourself.

      For several companies it would be nice if you gave the admin the ability to add tiles directly to the app launcher for all users. For example when you want to link to the time management tool, public website etc.

      • Office 365 Password email Notification

        Office 365 as of right now doesn't have a feature that enables users to get notified if their passwords are on the verge of getting expired. I know there's a notification that appears, but our organization needs the email notifications. If you guys can help us out it would really appreciated.

        • Block logins from other countries

          It would improve security if we can restrict O365 logins to a specific geographic region. Or exclude specific countries if we identify major hacking attempts from those countries.

            • Delegate permissions for managing MFA

              To be able to delegate the permission of administering user account MFA setting like enable/disabled forcing reset of MFA code etc.

              Currently the Global Admin permission is needed. It would be able very useful to delegate this to a service desk function without having to provide full admin access to the tenant.

              • Tenant-wide time zone setting for SharePoint (at least)

                It doesn't make any sense to me to have to set the time zone per Site Collection. For an organization that sits in one time zone, having to change every Site Collection from PST to the local time zone is tedious. If there were a single overarching setting that Site Collections could inherit from, it would make things a lot easier.

                  Thanks for your feedback! We’re reviewing your suggestion. Remember, the more votes a suggestion gets, the more likely it is that we’ll do it. You can see what’s happening with Office 365 on the Office 365 Roadmap.

                • allow the ability to merge 365 accounts seamlessly

                  Allow two 365 accounts to be merged without having to rebuild email accounts, move files etc... just move the domain from one 365 account to another after proper verification -- or even by just calling Microsoft support

                  • GAL Federation between different O365 tenants

                    As organisations grow, or have to separate different business areas in different O365 tenants it would be useful to be able to share or federate global address lists between different tenants. The only current choices are:

                    1. Create contact objects in tenants which are then disconnected from the original user - this means if the user details change the contact in the other tenant becomes out of sync.

                    2. Where domain federation in in place and directory synchronisation services running for each tenant, create on premise AD users as mail enabled users and ensure each directory sync for each tenant…

                        Thank you for your responses. We appreciate that you’ve taken the time to provide us with feedback to help make our products better.

                        We’re actively working on significant improvements to the end user experience with the feature across Outlook clients. This includes improvements to the UX, the classification algorithms, and controls.

                        Today, admins have a Power-Shell cmdlet that allows them to control the Clutter feature on a per mailbox level. Details of this can be found here: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/mt586787%28v=exchg.160%29.aspx?f=255&MSPPError=-2147217396

                        Our decision to provide the cmdlet based control for Clutter was based on early feedback we received on the Clutter feature.

                        We will continue to improve the admin controls based on the continued feedback. Considering the responses on this forum, it would be helpful to better understand the gaps in the current admin control story. Do you believe the gap here is in not having a tenant level control or not having…

                        I would like to be able to access the Tasks function of Office 365 either through a dedicated App on my Android Mobile, or through the mobile web portal. Right now, clicking on the Tasks icon in the mobile portal brings up Outlook without access to the Tasks.

                        • Support for Dynamic '+' Email Aliases in Office 365

                          Hello,

                          I am familiar with using a plus sign following my email alias to create dynamic unique addresses for a Gmail account. e.g. test.email+signedup@gmail.com will arrive at my Gmail mailbox, where I can then apply rules based on the 'To:' address. See this page for details: https://support.google.com/mail/answer/22370

                          I tested this on my Office 365 address and it works, but only for email addresses in my parent domain. Using the aliases on subdomain addresses results in a 'recipient not found' NDR.

                          Does anyone out there have more information on this feature or if it even is one for 365 / Exchange?

Machine name (because I have seen duplicates using 2 licenses on 1 machine). Usage. Is the user a heavy Excel user, PowerPoint, Word, etc.

                            • Provide a powershell interface from admin area - so you can use powershell directly from the portal page.

                              Having this ability to run PowerShell directly will remove the need to connect from on-premises to perform PowerShell tasks. This will also help 100% Mac shops - which cannot run PowerShell at all.

                                Every time there is some sort of notification in Office 365 Admin (i.e. your subscription expires in 57 days, you cancelled a subscription, etc.), all of the admins get a VERY annoying notification and "ding" noise every time they navigate to a new page in the Portal/SharePoint/etc. It makes it nearly impossible to work. First of all, these notifications are next to useless and some can't even be dismissed (i.e. you cancelled a subscription - who cares??). Second, you should be able to dismiss them easily or just turn off the functionality altogether. This was a bad feature update by…
