  1. Assigne Role To reset password for a certain domain

    I need a role to be assigned to user to reset password for its own domain. As for the existing role, user can reset all domains under a tenant.

    • Temorarily hold email with too many recipients and warn sender

      As an Exchange online admin (or any other mail system admin for that matter) it would be nice if one could enable some kind of automated process where a user is warned about emails with too many recipients.
      We've all received those annoying (or possibly damaging) emails send to dozens of people whose email addresses become unnecessarily exposed to everyone else. In many cases the email is for a legitimate purpose, and we know the sender should rather have BCCed everyone, or sent individual emails, or something.
      Is there a way in Exchange Online to enable a temporary hold on…

      • Change the rule name that is blocking email to the name instead of GUID

        The rule name that is blocking an email is listed but directs you to the GUID name instead of the name of the rule. At some point this was changed because it used to list the rule name doing the blocking.
        Only way to find the blocking rule because it is listed as a GUID is to go through powershell and find the transport rules then find the GUID.
        Change it Back.

              • Better logging for cutover migration batch errors

                WHen doing cutover migrations, there's a bunch of criteria that must be satisfied for a successful mailbox migration. Migration errors are currently very hard to troubleshoot as Office365 doesn't provide any details regarding the failure (for instance provisioning errors). I'd like _much_ more detailed logging to enable easier troubleshooting of errors.

                    • Improve the 365 update process for a single user (this may not apply to Businesses)

                      When I am in a 365 app (usually Excel) a message appears "Updates Available" with a button to click. Then it wants to close my office apps - I understand why that needs to be done. Then another (update) app appears to say "Be sure to save your work". When the update is finished, there is no message that it is finished.

                      Keep the - in app (Excel) button message "Updates are Available". I click the button, it then loads and sets user focus to the Update-App.

                      • Logic to force TLS otherwise fall back to OME

                        We would like to use TLS for all partner domains that we know support TLS. For everyone else, when there is an email with sensitive information, we would like to fall back to OME. This way, all emails that need encryption are protected but effort is reduced on the recipient's end. How this should work is, we specify partner domains in Office 365 that we know support TLS. If an email is sent to one of these domains, it should send using TLS immediately. If they are not in the domain list, the email is scanned for sensitive information or…

                        • Send alert to external email when I get a new message in Outlook

                          It would be nice to be able to create a rule that sends a "You've Got Mail" alert message to an external contact email address when a new message arrives in Outlook. Outlook already has a "Send an alert to my mobile device when I get messages from someone", but no alert to an external email address.

                          • No message prompt when creating a user from Office 365 admin center if an additional license is required

                            I had purchased an additional license unintentionally because no message has been prompted when an additional license was required for creating a user from Office 365 admin center. I don’t like it because it causes additional billing without noticing it. I strongly suggest to fix the behavior that admin can recognize some message stating that license purchasing required.

                                • Provide the "use office 2016 to sync files that I open" option in OneDrive on MAC OS

                                  Most of our PCs run on very slow internet connections, and allowing Office apps to sync with cloud is very very tedious and counter-productive. We therefore turn this option off. On Onedrive under Windows 10 we can open the settings of Onedrive, select Office and turn off the "use office 2016 to sync files that I open" option. On Onedrive in MAC, there appears to be no preferences or options available through the icon.

                                  I want it so that OneDrive continues to sync in the background, but the Office Apps don’t keep stopping with “Contacting the server for information” whenever…

                                  • Allow end users the ability to govern the full permission of their own mailbox

                                    Currently an administrator must run add-mailboxpermission, however users should be able to configure giving full access to their mailbox or at the very least being able to propagate permissions down a folder structure.

                                    • integrate outlook email and calendar with document files

                                      I prepare documents and I write emails about them. I want to automatically save my emails with my documents. That should not be hard.

                                      As it is, I lose much of my best work whenever Outlook deletes material or when my computer crashes -- as happened this week -- since Outlook doesn't back up as do documents.

                                      This seems like such a no-brainer that I'm surprised that Office didn't do this a decade ago

                                      • Need method for Inviting Bulk-Added users, as opposed to manually.

                                        An email Invite should be available on either the User interface tab, or in bulk by pre-selecting users to Invite. Need bulk import of new users to include an external email address for the system to know where to send invite.

                                        So two thing's
                                        1) adjust template of import function to bulk populate new users, know with external email field.
                                        2) a method to trigger invites to one or more users or groups within tenant admin.
