  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.

  2. Allow Tenant Admins to Control New Features being Enabled/Disabled by Default

    Tenant administrators should have the ability to specify whether or not new features such as Teams, Sway, etc. are enabled by default within their tenants. Just like there's the ability to set a tenant to receive First Release, Admins should be able to specify how changes are introduced to their environment. It's great that there are Powershell commands to turn features on/off but it would be much easier to either set these new features to be off by default, or enable Admins to enable when organizations are ready to absorb those changes. Functionality like Teams is absolutely fantastic, but without…

  3. Outlook tasks mobile

    I would like to be able to access the Tasks function of Office 365 either through a dedicated App on my Android Mobile, or through the mobile web portal. Right now, clicking on the Tasks icon in the mobile portal brings up Outlook without access to the Tasks.

  4. 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.

  6. Ability for global administrator to remove app from app launcher for all users

    Ability for app to be globally removed from the app launcher - as opposed to telling 50,000+ to unpin it themselves.

  7. Change landing page for login

    Allow the portal log-in landing page to be changed for the entire organization as the administrator. For example, instead of being directed to Outlook, the user is directed to the share point site. I realize users can do this for themselves, but I'd like the ability to do it for them as the administrator.

  8. Add group targeting to the custom tiles for O365

  9. Allow updating of Office 365 with WSUS without SCCM

    It's simple. Admins use WSUS to keep Microsoft products up to date. Give us the ability to update Office 365 without having SCCM. This just makes logical sense for people in the real world to update their Microsoft products. Those who don't have SCCM because of cost use WSUS. Microsoft is making our jobs more difficult every day it seems lately.

  10. Need a Teams user right to control sideloading of apps

    Currently, once sideloading is enabled in Teams admin, ALL team owners can sideload apps to their team.

    Our IT team would like to, I think correctly, restrict access to who can sideload apps for production and test purposes on a per-user and per-team basis.

    For example, I am currently developing a bot but our admin has no way to allow ONLY approved users to test their app in Teams.

    Please provide enabling external apps as an individual user right in addition to the Teams level setting.

    Thanks.

  12. Hide Dynamics 365 tile without also disabling Flow

    Many enterprises do not necessarily use Dynamics 365. There are many other CRM applications out there in use, namely such SaaS applications as Salesforce and NetSuite. But those same enterprises may need to use Flow to move other data. So therefore, there should not be the requirement that these two are inextricably connected.

  14. Prevent users from being able to change passwords in Outlook Web Access (OWA)

    There's currently a security loophole where even if users are locked from changing passwords in a desktop environment, they can still do so via the cloud when accessing Outlook Web Access. It's frustrating and not sensible to leave OWA open like this with no option to lock.

  15. Turn off transcripts on Microsoft Stream videos

    Currently the transcript appearing to the right of an uploaded video to MS Stream can only temporarily be turned off by switching it from the video directly. The problem is the next time the video loads, the transcript appears again. Please create a solution to turn it off completely, preferably also on Channel level

  16. Windows PowerShell commandlets that support Microsoft Stream

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):

    Windows PowerShell commandlets that support Microsoft Stream


    ■Description(内容):
    現時点にて Microsoft Stream の管理を行うための Windows PowerShell コマンドレットが存在しないため、殆どの管理を GUI で行う必要があります。

    アップロードした動画や Microsoft Stream を利用するユーザーが増えると管理の工程が増えるため、Windows PowerShell を利用して所有者および、閲覧者を確認するコマンドレットや動画の閲覧者を一括して登録が行えるといったコマンドレットの提供を希望します。​
    Currently there are no Windows PowerShell commandlets to support Microsoft Stream management, and almost all management needs to be done on the GUI.

    If the amount of videos uploaded or Microsoft Stream users increase the workload for managing them will increase as well, thus we hope that Windows PowerShell commandlets will be provided for checking owners and viewers, and for registering video viewers at once.

  17. Allow multiple managed Office 365 accounts to register on one device

    We have multiple users who, due to business needs, have to access their own account and other accounts on their mobile devices. However, as all accounts are managed, we are limited to one account.

  18. MFA app notifications to show IP address and location the prompt generated from.

    Inside the Microsoft Authenticator app, when a user gets prompted for approve or deny MFA, there should be information around the location and the IP address that generated the prompt. Example: User is in Auckland,New Zealand and the prompt was generated because credentials being tried in Ireland, the user should see that prompt is from Ireland and the public IP address its coming from. Users can then report fraud or deny with a more informative decision.

  19. user account switching

    Right now if you want to switch betweeen two accounts you must log all the way out, close the browser, then re-login with the other credentials. There should be a switch user menu to allow context switching between user accounts. This is especially usefull for admins to switch between their personal user account, their admin account with privileges and test accounts.

  20. Improve Microsoft Stream search accuracy

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    Microsoft Stream での検索動作の精度向上を希望いたします。

    Improve Microsoft Stream search accuracy


    Microsoft Stream での検索は、現時点でタイトルの完全一致、記号を含むタイトルであった場合には、記号の前後のワードを指定することで検索にヒットすることを確認しております。
    しかし、記号が含まれないタイトルであった場合には、検索時にタイトルを完全一致で入力しなければ検索にヒットしないことも確認しております。
    動画タイトルをすべて把握していない場合や動画のタイトルが長い場合など、現時点での検索動作では検索のし易さに欠けると考えます。
    そのため、記号など含まずとも、動画タイトルの一部のワードでも動画の検索が可能になれば、よりMicrosoft Stream での動画の管理がしやすくなり、一般ユーザーの視点からも利用がしやすくなると考えます。

    When searching in Microsoft Stream I have to enter exact word, including symbol, to get the results I am looking for, which we find it extremely difficault as we are not always sure the exact titles. Add search-as-you-type feature (i.e. autosuggest in a search input) in Microsoft Stream.

    Thank you for your consideration.
