  1. Office 365 ATP safe attachments policies internal organization

    Create rules for sender. to avoid the scanning for accounts in the same domain (same organization)
    e.g. I'm sending an email to my co-worker and I need to wait the scanning (for minutes) to receive the files attached.

      • Notification status on Office 365 admin center  and 0365 Service Health are inconsistent

        Notification status on Office 365 admin center and 0365 Service Health are Inconsistent.

        Notification Publishing Time are Inconsistent on both the Places.
        The O365 Admin Center notification was published as an advisory, while the issue was a global outage. This could be misleading and could create delay in end user communication by IT.

        Reproducible steps:

        1. Click on internet Explorer
        2. Login to 0365 admin Portal https://portal.office.com/adminportal/home?rc=1#/servicehealth.
        3. With your 0365 Admin credentials
        4. You will see Incidents/ Advisories where it will shows the details of the degraded/Interrupted services.

          • Onenote trigers "Unusual external user file activity"

            When an users shares a big OneNote to an external user and the external user open's the OneNote it triggers an "Unusual external user file activity" in 365 alerts with attention high. This should not happen.

                If auto-reply from Tenant’s conference room is delayed, we would request you to enable admins to check the auto-reply status from SHD.

                • Creating Service Request

                  When creating service requests, it is sometimes confusing which category we should choose.
                  It would be better if there is brief description of each category or we can see the list of [Symptom] on the first page.
                  https://portal.office.com/support/support.aspx
                  * [Symptom] : you can see this section after the first page.

                  <Background>
                  e.g. the customer wanted to ask questions about Powershell the other day, but could not find a proper section.
                  After moved to the second page and clicked [Symptom], there was no choice of Powershell, so had to go back to the first page.

                  • Let us see at least 12 months worth of Service Health reports

                    Hi,
                    We need more than 30 days service health reports. In a lot of cases, it would be very useful to be able to see 13 months worth of reports or at least a date picker.
                    Many thanks,
                    Neil

                    • SI information should be visible to end users

                      Currently SI information is visible to tenant Administrators only.
                      To reduce unnecessary call from end users, SI information should be visible to end users too.

                                        • View licenses by office location

                                          Add a custom view in the Users admin view in O365 to filter by office location.

                                          Group licensing is a great step forward here, but this would be helpful as well.
