  1. Assigning retention policies that are used for shared mailbox to Office 365 Groups

    We need to assign retention policies that are used for shared mailbox to certain Office 365 Groups. It would be easier to manage deleting/moving items same as shared mailbox does if this feature became available.

  2. Allow customization of SMTP and IMAP in OWA

    Outlook in Office 365 A1 is basically USELESS unless we move our domain to MS or use a different domain created in Office 365. If we could change the SMTP and IMAP setting to our own servers then we could use the online Outlook. At one time this WAS available but has since been removed. Give us back this option so we can use ALL the apps in Office 365 A1.

  3. Let Office 365 have more than one Global admin with full rights/access.

    Currently, if I understand rightly, only the original purchaser and person who set up the O365 account can be a global admin. Well, what if that person is no longer employed at your company? How does the new admin, or backup, gain global access?

    If I understand correctly, the current choices that can be assigned by the global admin are:

    Billing admin
    Password admin
    Service admin
    User management admin

    Global admin cannot be assigned or shared?

    The global admin should be able to see and reset user passwords. Currently even global admin cannot view passwords. That functionality is basic to…

  4. Mail contacts and guest mail users available in people search

    Mail contacts and guest mail users available in people search. If they are visible in the GAL then they should be available in a people search.

  5. QUIT CHANGING THE ADMIN CONSOLES

    It's called a test-group, use it. Then settle on a reliable design, and quit moving **** around.

  8. Make uploading audio for transcription part of the desktop word app functionality

    I received an error every time I tried to drop down the Transcribe function on the word office365 app online despite following the instructions to try different browsers. This function should be made available from the desktop app.

  9. If the only way to contact MS O365 is through a telephone number that you supply have you ever thought of answering the phone?

    If the only way to contact MS O365 is through a telephone number that you supply have you ever thought of answering the phone when it rings?

  10. Adding Licenses Cursor Just Spins from Home Page

    if you have more than 1000 users, adding licenses through the Admin Portal Home page, the cursor just spins after clicking save. I was told it depends on the people picker services running on the server. Please fix so that we can add licenses from the Home Page without hangs.

  11. Allow admins to see the Store tile on the launcher

    As an admin i always used to have the store tile in the app launcher. However it disappeared months ago and MS Support said this is by design. How can an admin easily access the store without either creating a tile or just using a browser shortcut. Please give admins back the ability to see the Store tile as other non admin users have.

  14. Outlook - restrict direct file access while allowing to print attachments in OWA!

    for security reasons we do not want to allow users to access the local hard drive at all but still be able to print attachments they receive in OWA.

  17. admins should be able to manage(add/remove members) a security group by using the Exchange admin center

    currently we encounter the issue described in this article https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/exchange/troubleshoot/groups/no-sufficient-permissions-moving-dg. but the solution there isn't really a great solution. why organization management group member or other kinds of admins can't manage the security group in EAC directly without being the manager of the group
    . This design is not good. Please help improve

  18. When editing a group event that was sent to the selected people but not to the group

    When working with group calendars in outlook in windows and editing a group event that was sent to the selected people but not to the group the group will also be notified, but not in the outlook web or in the Mac versión or in the mobile app. Could this be fixed? In my opinion makes no sense to notify all the members of the group... and outlook in windows should work as the others

  19. Allow management of 'Message Center Preferences' users who have been terminated

    When an administrator leaves due to separation, the account is disabled, either automatically remove automated email messages, or allow global admin access to edit the preferences of other admins.
