  1. 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.

          • Stop showing the support task pane every time I login to the admin portal

            The new virtual assistant or help task pane that constantly shows up on the right side of the screen is very annoying. Admins don't open support cases every time they use the portal. It takes up space and is not needed. Please add the option to "not show this again".

            • user deleted, without an influence of an admin or azure ad connect

              I had a Support case (SRX617100591301105ID) with Microsoft. The issue, several active user (sync and incloud) were deleted, without an influence of an admin or azure ad connect!
              We generated several Reports (with MS Support), but no report helped us.

              That`s the third time, that this happens and without an Impact of our Company (admin or azure ad connect), it must be a reason by MS O365! So, please help us to identify, why those user were deleted, to generate a solution, that this won`t happens again.

              greetings

              • never been so disappointed in getting help for installation. Started when o'seas so called experts told me my activation receipt was not act

                Thanks for nothing in helping me install my office 365 personal. After giving you access to install it for me you turned off my ability to access old word documents in documents library and then after over an hour later you said it was too difficult for you and it needed level 2 managers support. I am still not installed and activated and I am going to let everyone else know about it. ref.13677444791D thankyou Pooja. S for nothing !

                  • OneDrive document access for search and investigations

                    We have a security group who occasionally need to access OneDrive contents for an active employee and would like to download those contents. They are not global administrators nor should they ever be. They do eDiscoveries, etc., and can search via keywords, etc., but they want to pull OneDrive documents off for legal reasons. It would be nice if there were an easier way to do this without attaching them to the person's OneDrive or having a Global Admin to go do that for them.

                      • Email notifications, when someone changes settings on the 365 portal

                        Hi - As part of a multi admin group, Im missing the option to receive email notifications, when someone changes group membership, email adresses, passwords and other related actions, in the Office 365 Portal.
                        So if some other admin removes (intentionally or unintentionally) a user from a mailgroup, the portal sends out an email.
                        That way you can control if someone messes with your 365.

                        • Clearer guidance about user impact when enabling/disabling new product wide features across an organisation?

                          When Microsoft is rolling out a feature like Focused Inbox, I think the 1st basic question asked which is not easily obtained in guidance for admins is. How does enabling focused inbox across the organisation affect current users? The answer to the question could be E.g. Existing user view preferences are preserved so there's no change but the option is made available for users to choose to use it? New users will have focused inbox and other views set by default? Focused inbox and other views are set by default for every user? Notifications will appear about focus inbox view…

                          • Multi-Factor Auth - Link to choose another domain

                            Provide a link on the Multi-Factor auth login page to use an account from a different domain. Consider, user has two O365 accounts, one is from a MFA domain, the other is SFA. User attempts to access admin portal (for example) and lands on MFA page. However user wants to sign in using the other domain's account. Only option is to sign in, not to change domain.

                            • DNS set to Office 365 button

                              Add a checkmark to designate the domain DNS is managed by Office 365. I have had to add a domain 4 times to trigger some sort of automation that will populate the 365 DNS servers to add the records to the newly added domain. This has lead to an outage of email during this process. A simple designation to tell 365 that it should have the DNS managed by itself would have re mediated this situation.

                              • Give Admins a tool to export the company Global address book to the users contacts.

                                A tool where you could select a user and have the information in the GAL added to the users contacts list in outlook. Outlook is lacking in the contact management for both the Office365, and user sides. When ever we add a new user we have to add all the contacts for our employees to their contact in outlook and or office365. This then replicates up to their phones through the outlook APP so the get all of the contacts for emailing calling and such. But also for Caller ID on their phones. I have read hundreds of forums and…

                                    • Delete domain name linked to expired account

                                      When the tenant as expired, users data (Exchange + SHarePoint) are deleted.
                                      Why you not deleting all the tenant and domain names linked too ?

                                      • Outlook 2016 of O365 is having a bug , with multiple accounts, Instance search is not working properly

                                        Outlook 2016 of O365 is having a bug , with multiple accounts, Instance search is not working properly

                                        I have more than 2 accounts on Outlook, Instance Search is not searching all the mails. But if we navigate mannually or browse by date we can see the older mails.

                                        • EOP mail trace CSV file should have destination IP information and Message delivery status.

                                          We have subscribe EOP services. We frequently use mail trace functionality. If I traced message older than 7 days its generated CSV file and its difficult to understand whether message is delivered or not. Its very helpful for admin if you add destination IP and delivery status in CSV file.

                                          Thanks and Regards,
                                          Ganesh Waghumbare
