  1. Find machine installs without having to go into each individual user account

    I wish to search machines with Office 365 installed without having to go into each users individual office 365 account i.e.have the ability to search for machine installs directly from the Office 365 Admin console.

  2. Allow InsiderFast on selected PCs

    We have Office 365 E3. I have my subscription on my main PC, but also on a VM that I use to test future builds of Windows. I want to install Insider Fast Office on that VM (only) with the same account as my main PC. Support tells me that I will be forced to have Insider Fast on all PCs under my subscription.

  4. There must be a way to download all the existing users in Office 365 to local AD.

    Right now , Azure AD Connect will upload all the users in local AD to O365. Is there any way to add/merge the existing users in O365 to local AD?

  5. Automatic License Transfer

    Sometimes we have staff replacement if we know one is leaving. Say Staff A is leaving on Wednesday while the replacement "B" is on board on Monday (on the same week). From the costing perspective it is not worth to buy a monthly license, but it incur additional works to IT admin to provision a license to B after A leaves.

    My suggestion is, can we have a function that schedule a license transfer from User A to User B at a specific date and time?

  7. Add ability to manage a user's shared mailboxes from the active users area

    It would be awesome to have a "Shared Mailboxes" area when editing a user in the Users, Active Users area like we have with Groups, to easily add/remove a user from given shared mailboxes vs. having to go into each.

  8. Teams - Group Call - Tiempo

    Estamos implementando Teams desde hace 2 meses y nos está costando mucho estabilizar la plataforma en relación a la calidad de las llamadas y funcionalidades.
    En relación a las funcionalidades, esta es una de ellas:
    Permitir indicar un tiempo menor a 10 segundos a un Group Call

  9. Allow us

    Allow us the ability to setup mailboxes with the “Set-CASMailbox -OutlookMobileEnabled $False. The fact that we have to wait until after creating a user profile is not helpful for my organization's processes.

  10. Out of Office during those periods.

    Kindly create a certain command that would add a message informing anyone who sends an email that our offices will be closed during those periods.
    Also, for emails received during the weekend, an auto answer message that tells our opening hours and days.

  12. Allow phrases in Block Words list

    The current Office 365 Group Naming Blocked Words feature only allows individual words to be blocked.

    Trying to block "heckler and koch" for example, will block "Heckler" "And" & "Koch" as three separate words.

    Trying to use the list to block department names, names for senior members of staff and job titles is not possible.

    Trying to block "Chief Information Officer" effectively blocks the words "Chief", "information" and "Officer"....

  13. Restrict access to Exchange Online to approved IPs like Sharepoint

    IP address restriction to the local network should be a default option for Exchange Online. It is included for Sharepoint, but I have to purchase conditional access if I want to lock down EOL. Properly securing EOL should be a standard offering.

  15. In case of POP3 the size of the .pst needs to be increased from 2GB to 5GB.

    The reason why it needs to be done is because after the recent changes done by Microsoft syncing Sent box also with Office365, users are getting frequent error message "mail box full" and as a result every time user needs to login in office 365 to delete old messages from Sent/Inbox box. This is causing lot of inconvenience to users.

  17. Usage reports in O365 Admin Portal don't accurately account for all users

    The Usage reports in O365 don't accurately account for all licensed users if an O365 app is used without the individual component license enabled (e.g., users who access SPO without an SPO license)

    BACKGROUND: We discovered when we first started using our O365 E3 tenant that an SPO license was not required to access SPO.
    Since SPO license is tied to One Drive, and Security has not finished piloting OneDrive, we allow users to access SPO via their SPO permissions, without an SPO license component enabled under the E3 license. These users can access SPO, they just do not have…
