  4. Exchange Hybrid Server - Unable to add Shared Mailboxes to send to DL

    On the Exchange Hybrid Server, when you go to a Distribution List and add a user to give access to send to the list, Shared Mailboxes do not show up, but they do on O365. Make Shared Mailboxes searchable on the Delivery Management for DL's.

  7. Provide IPs for TestConnectivity.microsoft.com

    Since Testconnectivity.microsoft.com was changed from an “Optional” to a “Default” O365 endpoint, we do not have published IPs for the site anymore like we used to back in 2018 and prior per https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Office-365-Networking/Why-are-some-Office-365-network-endpoints-provided-as-URLs-only/m-p/310490#M97

    Unfortunately, some customers firewall can only whitelist based on IPs and not url and this impacts their ability to use the site for testing. Can we get it back to where we have IPs we can provide customers so they can allow those through their firewall?

  8. Have admins to control when to finish verification process for subdomain ownership which has a parent-child relationship

    Once the sub domain has been verified that has parent- child relationship, the ownership verification process will be skipped when we register the sub domain. Therefore, when sending an email internally to the domain at this stage, NDR will be delivered since it is resolved internally as the address does not exist in EXO. It would be great if admins can control the when to complete the domain ownership verification process, or we could change domain type to Authoritative.

  9. moving away from using WinRM with Basic support and using some other Auth mechansim for Remote console to Office 365.

    PG team we have a bit of security risk with the present HCW using WinRM to use basic , this does not comply with the TSS benchmark and wanted to know if there are any plans for move off Basic for WinRM since we need that to connect to 0365 within HCW.

  11. Búsqueda y auditoria

    Cordial saludo,

    En la búsqueda de contenido debería existir un filtro que me permita indicar si la búsqueda es en Skype, Correo o otras aplicaciones.

    Adicional en los resultados de la búsqueda, poder visualizar mas de 100 registros ya que en un proceso de auditoria es mas fácil visualizar la información en este modo y no en un archivo exportado, puesto que en un archivo CSV es mas complicado de buscar la información.

    Quedo atento.

  14. Ordering clarification for Nonprofits

    The information on your ordering page should be more clear for Nonprofits. There's little difference b/t Proplus (https://products.office.com/en-us/business/office-365-proplus-business-software) and Business Premium (https://products.office.com/en-us/nonprofit/office-365-nonprofit-plans-and-pricing) and when you click to 'learn more' it doesn't show Nonprofit-specific information.

  15. Having to use PowerShell for admin users on Office 365 is very troublesome for non-IT admins.

    Having to use PowerShell for admin users on Office 365 is very troublesome for non-IT admins. I have no idea how to use PowerShell as I only administer 3 users. We would like to use Focused Inbox but the setup appears to be way beyond a non-IT person's abilities.

  16. Give opportunity to customize password reset email sent after an administrative reset

    There is no template for this mail. Could be important to add the company logo instead of MS logo in order to not fool users.

  19. a function that does not overwrite the display name when signing up a guest user

    After inviting a guest user, even if the administrator sets the display name before the guest user signs up, the display name is overwritten when signing up.
    So, to set the guest user's display name, you must wait for the guest user to sign up.
    Therefore, I want a function that does not overwrite the display name when signing up a guest user.

  20. disable Teams auto install for environments that can't use Teams

    with Office 365 pro plus 1902 Teams will be included and installed automatically on new installations, updates and online repairs. Furthermore Teams will be added to the systemstart and a desktop icon will be created. You can prevent this form happening via GPO. It should not happen for environments that CAN'T use Teams in the first place. For uninstalling Teams you need to uninstall Teams AND Teams wide installer. By not uninstalling the wide installer, teams will be reinstalled on restart.
