  1. Compliance & Security: Extend Content Search Range

    It would be nice to extend the Content Search range to more than 90 days to realize some real Legals Business Case Report support.

    • Users should be able to select if they take Custom theming or not

      One of the customers are setting different colors in their Office 365 navigation bar per site collection but one day they saw the navigation bar colors in all their sites were changed to Black.

      This was because "Nav bar background color" setting in [Custom theming] option in MOP took effect without offering the option for not using this setting.

      Some of the customers can give special meaning to site collection's design. For such users, this design change is nothing but a trouble.

      Please give them options not to use [Custom theming]!!!

      • Can you include invoice numbers in email attachment files?

        When you email invoices to us, can you please include the invoice number in filename of the attached pdf? For example:

        Instead of "Office 365.pdf", call it "Office 365 Invoice XXXXXXX.pdf"

        It's a small thing, but we dump all our invoices into a single folder and if they're named the same then they'll all overwrite each other, so we have to rename your invoices to prevent this.

        • OneDrive web interface: better support for long filenames

          I have to adjust and re-adjust the width of filename column on the web (companyname-my.sharepoint.com) to show my long filenames after each page reload. That drives me crazy.

          The web interface should keep the width of columns between page reloads and between sessions. I have to work with long filenames, the usually suggested workaraound to rename files to be shorter is not feasible.

          • “Security & Compliance” - DLP policies.

            Feature request - for “Security & Compliance” center in O365. Specifically the DLP policies.

            We would like to be able to exclude individual accounts. The functionality exists to exclude entire Distribution groups, but we should also be able to add single accounts here as well.

                  • Allow management of users in hidden User Information List

                    The hidden User Information List (UIL) in SharePoint retains users who have been disabled in Active Directory. This allows their names to appear when using the people picker in SharePoint even though they're no longer with the company. At the moment this can only be resolved by going to each site collection to manage the collection's UIL and delete users on a case by case basis. The UIL should be manageable through the SharePoint admin center so that disabled users are filtered and do not show in the people picker.

                    • Syncing DL moderation settings from on-premise to the cloud.

                      Hello,
                      I was told by MS support that syncing the moderation settings in a DL from on-premise to the cloud is not built in to Office 365. I am requesting this. Thanks.

                      • "UPDATE YOUR PAYMENT INFORMATION" HyperLink in the Notification email does not work

                        "UPDATE YOUR PAYMENT INFORMATION" HyperLink in the Notification email does not work as it redirects to the payments method page in the Office 365 Admin Centre, however some browsers doesn't load the page correctly which it does otherwise when navigated to the same page and not through the hyperlink in the email.
                        While in Edge, it gets to the page and the "Edit details" button needs to clicked multiple times to get it to work.

                        • Update Calc fields in Share POINT

                          Really am loving all the power that is coming with Office 365. Particularly enjoy the use of Sharepoint lists, powerapps and Dynamics and feel the following would be a great enhancement

                          1. Would really like to see SharePoint lists update its calculated fields without the need to edit

                          2. Would like to see a workflow on a list based on date column or a calc field

                          • Enterprise invoicing is confusing with the multiple service period line items each month.

                            i have to call support each month to get the excel breakdown by day of license purchases for services. The excel detail should be something i can download. And besides it may make more sense to consolidate the invoice to fewer line items and add a third page with all the detail by day.

                                • Enable Inbox Rules to match all words in a string

                                  We have noticed a difference in the way that Exchange Online handles strings for Inbox Rules.

                                  With Exchange 2010, when someone creates a rule to match words in a subject, it would match all the words, regardless of where they appeared in the subject.
                                  For example, if a rule searches for "incident has not been closed" in the subject, an email with the subject "Incident XY12535AB for Joe Smith has not been closed" would match the rule and be routed appropriately.
                                  However, in Exchange online the subject string looks for an exact phrase. So in the previous example, the rule…

                                  • Allow Storage directly to Box (a MSFT Cloud Service Partner Provider ) in the Office Online version

                                    The Office Online versions of Word, Excel, and Powerpoint do not display all current Cloud Service Partner providers. When the "add a place" option is selected the only choices are OneDrive for Business and Dropbox. We do not see the Box option although we are leveraging the Box integration with O365. It appears in the desktop and mobile versions fine but not the online one.

                                      • Query regarding litigation hold

                                        Currently, i'm in the progress to do hybrid migration. As we known, the mailbox can be accessed without license within 30days. If we don't assign lic, the mailbox will gone after 30 days. But I would like to confirm if i temp assign lic to migrated mailbox and put them on in-place hold. My concern is after how long, i can remove lic from user and the make user data can still be accessed? Is there anybody experiencing such kind of issue?

                                        Thank you very much. Your sharing will be highly appreciated.

                                        • Posibility to add address info to Room resources

                                          Posibility to add address as part of Room description (equipment, number of seats, …). When sending meeting request to people outside organization, people have to write address for attendees and this is very comfortable for all parties. There is similar request to add direct Google Maps/Bing location: Able to add building map that shows room location (image) or a google map to Exchange Resource Room. System should be able to get directions from this description, e.g. when opened in phone, it should directly display or copy address to map app.
