      • Country Administrators - Global Admins of 'Country' Organizational Units

        Hello,
        We are looking at Built-in MDM (or at least trying to) but we are having some problems with assigning appropriate permissions for 'Country' Admins to be able to operate the Security & Compliance Admin Center. Microsoft suggests that it is bad practice to have many Global Admins, yet in order to be able to Manage Devices there is no Role or Role Group available to accomplish this, I am told they have to be Global Admin. This means we would have to have many Global Admins!!??
        It would be great if there was a way of assigning a Global…

          • Add The Ability For Administrators to Change a Skype For Business User's Outbound Caller ID

            I would really like for the ability to specify Outbound Caller ID. Lacking this feature (and a few others) is preventing us from using Skype For Business to replace some of our client's current PBX platforms.

            I am sure that Microsoft wants to have a larger PBX market share and hope they will soon give us the ability to request CNAM database changes in their PBX.

            Cellular service providers allow clients to make these changes when logged into their web portals, so Microsoft could do the same in the admin portal.

            • OneDrive Sync for Mac: reach/have the logfile of synchronization from the user interface

              It would be nice to have an option to reach the logfile of synchronization from the user interface. For example: I need the list of files which cannot be synced, in order to create a script to rename them.

              • Give user a license during user creation even if there are no extra license available

                You will usually have a 1:1 ratio of valid and assigned licenses.

                This document should let us know what we can do if we do not have any extra licences to hand out. How can we buy a license during user creation and assign that license to our user using Powershell.

                • Block IP addresses from accessing Office365 portal and services

                  In our Audit Log Search, we have found that an IP-address is constantly trying to access our Office365 services. The IP is visible and not of one of our employees.
                  Further investigation provides us with the information that this is a known brute-forcer, thus we wanted to block/blacklist that IP from accessing our Office365 portal and our services (OWA/Exchange, OneDrive, .. ).

                  This does not seem to be possible and should not be hard to implement.

                  Hope this is available for implementation shortly

                    • Full Support for Unicode emojis in MailFlow rules

                      I went to add an emoji to a subject line (within mailflow rules) only to discover that one of two emojis I was trying to use "wasn't supported". This is an emoji that's been around for years, so it suggests that Microsoft is pretty far behind on Unicode support within the platform.

                      Upon opening a support ticket, I was informed that most aren't compatible, which made absolutely no sense to me, since I can use them all within my mail client. This suggests the mailflow rules are in dire need of an update.

                      The Emoji in question that I was…

                      • Allow the admin to customize the ADR

                        The 'standard' ADR is horribly uninformative I think. There should be a means provided in a shared server environment to customize and/or create new ADRs that are tailored to the situation.

                          It is great to he able to customize Helpdesk Menu from company profile. Even the less phone number must be unique. It should be great that we can link to an URL or to a table with country code / phone number as worldwide company not have the same support phone in all countries

                              • alerts which are being received stating that the account is being deleted.

                                This is a follow up to our phone conversation regarding the alerts which are being received stating that the account is being deleted. When you bought the new subscription instead of renewing the old subscription it added a new subscription and reassigned the licenses to the new users.

                                The account is healthy, there will be no disruption of service. I apologize that the alerts are annoying, these are just in case this was not planned, we would not want your service to be disrupted. You can leave feed back to our engineers requesting a way to turn off the alerts…
