  1. 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.

      Thanks for taking the time to provide this feedback! The ideas on this thread have been instrumental in shaping our approach and the great news is that we’re actively exploring app management features for admins including the ability to pin and remove tiles from the launcher. It’s important for us that anything we introduce doesn’t break the diverse range of setups across our customers or impact our ability to innovate or change the App Launcher in the future. You can keep up to speed with our development by following the Office 365 Roadmap: http://fasttrack.microsoft.com/roadmap where you’ll see a new item named ‘Admin Customization of App Launcher’ over the next few days.

    • 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.

      • Properly delete an external users from o365

        The problem is that some users receive an invitation to an email A and for some reason accept it with an email B.
        Because of this, the user can't log into the site where he was invited with his email A.

        I've investigated how to properly delete this user from our Sharepoint online plateform to unlink the email A and the email B in order to be able to resend a new invitation to email A.
        I've proceed to the different steps explained in this KB : https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3026478

        And unfortunately, after all these powershell commands, the link between A and…

        • Add an External User view to Office 365 Admin Portal

          When external users are invited to a site, their account is created and visible in the Office 365 Admin portal > Active Users.
          In this example, I have invited Fabrice from STPSchools. He uses an Organisational account:
          fabricec@stpschools.onmicrosoft.com
          It has been added to my Active Users list as:
          fabricec_stpschools.onmicrosoft.com#EXT#@Webster.net.nz.

          As more external people are invited, I want to view and manage them as a separate group. I could view them all using the Unlicensed Users view. But that also includes other unlicensed users in my organisation.

          Please create a view to list all External User accounts, separate from Unlicensed…

            We know that there is no good way of managing external users in the Admin Portal today and we are thinking about ways to solve this.
