  1. 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?

    We announced at Ignite that we are actively working on bringing dynamic plus aliases to Office 365.
    To get around existing usage, the plan is for an opt-in setting. Our ETA is to have this available for all customers by the third quarter of 2020.
    I will keep you updated in Uservoice on our progress.

  2. 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.

  3. Report which shows the amount of OneDrive for Business storage per user.

    Hello,

    It would be great to be able to compile reports which show the OneDrive for Business usage per user.

    Reporting this idea by suggestion of Andy Sek:

    RE: Check OneDrive for Business size per user
    Reply by Andy Sek MSFT Support
    Hi Andy,
    Currently, there is no report that includes the OneDrive for Business storage usage for each user. You may need to use the Global administrator account to access each OneDrive for Business to have a check.
    To be honest, to get a report is a good idea. To better serve you, we would suggest that you submit…

    We are currently working on this report. We will have a OneDrive site usage report that not only shows how much storage each OneDrive user is consuming, but also how many files they have on the site, and how much activity that site is experiencing.

  4. Usage reports for SharePoint

    Provide centralized usage reports for entire SharePoint Online tenant such as page views, user sessions, usage per site collection, etc. Individual site collection reports are ok but are not centralized.

    We are working on many of these report areas right now. We have a tenant-wide user activity report in development right now. The next report we will work on will be a tenant-wide site usage and activity report. After that, we will look at various other tenant-wide reports, including page-views, and storage metrics.

  5. SharePoint Online Audit Feature

    Hippa and the Audit Feature in SharePoint Online. The feature in SharePoint Online does not capture the information about when and document is viewed by an individual or opened by an individual. This information is important for Hippa sensitive information. I would like to see the return of this capability on sites that are being audited

    We are working on this feature. All file access events will be audited in the product, whether those events ultimately result in a person viewing the file or not. The data about who did what, when and from where, with every file stored in SharePoint will be made available through a compliance center UI and also through APIs that the customer or 3rd party analytics provider can access directly.

  6. Free SMTP send only account

    Office 365 allows to send emails from i.e. a scanner by using a paid accounts credentials. It is possible to assign an alias to that paid account and then use this alias as the sender name during the SMTP send request. However, the receiver gets an email seemingly originating from the accounts main SMTP address.
    For scan-to-email, this is inconvenient. It means that I either have to set aside a paid account just for scan-to-mail, or that the receiver of the scan-to-mail message always will see the wrong sender name.

    I would like to suggest that Office 365 would provide…

    You are able to send emails from a scanner using SMTP AUTH client submission via smtp.office365.com from the alias of an account.

    Work is being done to stop resolving the alias to the primary display name.

  7. ADD A feature to track who changed a site collection admin via SharePoint Admin Page

    Auditing for file opening/download is already off, removing the inheritance for permissions doesn't help if the site collection admin can still access a specific library that we want for certain people only.. Our solution is to make change the site collection admin to a generic service account, but we need to track if someone changes the site collection admin via SharePoint Admin..

    We are working on this feature. All significant Admin actions, including adding or changing admin privileges, will be audited in the product and this audit data will be made available through a compliance center UI and also through APIs that the customer or 3rd party analytics provider can access directly.
