How can we improve the tenant admin features O365?

enable office 365 MFA by default for all new users

Feature Request: Structural Integrity Associates is an office365 E3 tenant that has recently deployed Multi Factor Authentication MFA too all users in our organization. We are looking for a way to set the default MFA settings to "enabled" for all new users. It would also be nice to configure a number as default to get new users up and running before they have a company cell phone. For example, input a company main office phone number or issupoprt phone to allow MFA before they get a company cell phone.

    And please remove the requirement to have an App password to set up an Outlook profile when MFA is enabled. This is ridiculous!

    These options should be made available by default. Tenant admin can decide whether to keep it on by default or off. Same goes for all other settings like enabling archive, legal hold etc.

    This should be a default tenant-wide setting. Using Conditional Access with the AAD Premium Plans shouldn't be required to enable MFA for all by default.

    Computers are here to make our lives easier, Administrators should be able to set default settings for just about everything that office 365 can do. Currently this is a manual process and requires a lot of effort to keep up to date. It should be something we set and forget.

    And also requires Global Admin to setup this privilege. So if I have an HR person that can do limited functions to add/remove people... Now I have to give Global Admin privileges because there is no way to ENABLE for all new accounts.

    A basic feature that most other applications already have, this needs to be available

    Fully agree with other comments - should be possible to set this as a default at tenant level. Conditional access will work - but requires additional licenses.

    You can also look at identity protection to enable mfa by default to all users or conditional access with mfa to all users.

    This should be a setting that is configured at the Tenant, allowing admins to either turn it on/off for all new users at their discretion.
