  1. Recover Deleted Items increase to 30 days

    We are using Exchange Online (2013). We would like to change the Recover Deleted Items default of 15 days to 30 days. It can be done easily, with a PowerShell command. But guess what, it only applies to users CURRENTLY in the organization. Every time a new user is added, you have to re-run the PowerShell command. Holy 1985 Batman.

  2. Templates for Automatic replies

    I personally think this is a helpful and a missing feature. As a system administrator I would like to create templates for automatic replies. So, my employees can pick one of the templates in Outlook and use (or modify) it.

  3. Allow Adminstrator to turn off subscriptioin renewal pop ups.

    This is unbelievably counter productive as it refreshes on load of any new page we are attempting to work on. It needs to flash one time on log on and that is it.

  4. Enable access for exchange online admins to modify/remove default admin roles

    Currently default admin roles in exchange admin cant be managed by exchange/tenant administrators. We have old Blackberry related admin roles still active. We need permission to modify/remove default roles.

  5. Add a feature for PowerShell to output certain activities from the Usage report in Microsoft 365 admin center

    It would be great to have a feature to output certain activities from the Usage report by using PowerShell cmdlet, so that administrators can get certain values of activities only, such as Exchange Last Activity Date.

  6. Integrate new configuration flags for email enabled public folders

    For shared mailboxes the admin could control if a sent message should be copied to the senders mailbox.
    I think it is also helpful if this option is available for email enabled public folders.

    For me it would be very helpful, because I have many automatic mails over public folders, and every mail is also included in the sent folder of my own mailbox.

    Following you can see the configuration settings from shared mailboxes.

    You can enable this functionality by setting the feature enable flag to TRUE, as follows:

    For emails that are sent from the shared mailbox: 
    
    

    set-mailbox <mailbox…

  7. Changing default setting for Skype For Business to coordinate with primary option.

    Kind of a weird default for setting - enabling external user option to add does not technically work until the Skype For Business admin center -> organization -> external communications -> external access is changed to be opposite from its default setting (ie. changed to "On except for blocked domains) - suggestion for software enhancement.

  8. I want a feature to display Microsoft 365 Admin Center Service Health in Japanese

    I want a feature to display Microsoft 365 Admin Center Service Health in Japanese


    ■Description(内容):
    サービス インシデントが発生した際に、[サービス正常性] にて確認可能です。
    しかしながら、英語表記となっておりエンド ユーザー様へ適切なご説明が困難です。
    そのため、正式レポートとして日本語にて表示する機能の追加を希望します。
    When service incidents happen they can be checked using Service Health.
    But everything is in English and it is hard to explain properly to the end user.
    So I hope a feature will be added to make official reports display in Japanese.

  12. "Remove-CalendarEvents" is missing the ability to add text to the cancellation.

    Adding text to the cancelled meeting event will allow the cancelled meeting to make more sense to the person receiving the cancellation. It can be used to explain the reason for the mass cancellations especially if the meeting organizer is no longer with the company.

  13. malware filter, messages from internal senders, would be better if checked against actual users and aliases, not spoofed fakes

    would be better if the email warning could let me know which of my domain users is mentioned in the email. For example the warning only tells me the FROM (sender address) not the return path which is apparently where the warning derived its internal connection from:
    senderaddress returnpath
    evea@ncat.edu evea@[my domain].com
    However it would be even better if it would then run the user in the return path against our list of users and aliases since this evea has never been used at our organization so not actually internal.

  15. Order Teams by recent activity

    Be able to produce a report that shows which Teams are stale and which have activity (of any sort). Currently, you can view user and device activity, but I want to see which Teams are being used, when they were last used, the nature of the activity and how often (over time) they are used.

  17. EAC Doesn't Allow Forwarding to Guest Accounts

    Previously, if we needed to forward mail to an external contact (think an outside accountant), we would do that with a contact record in Exchange Online. Now that guest accounts are a thing, we may have added an outside user as a guest so they can be part of a team. The problem is that this now blocks email forwarding to that user. In the EAC, you can't setup a forwarding rule on a mailbox to go to a guest account. You also can't create a contact when a guest account exists for that external email address.

  20. Simplify Room/Resource coexistence during lengthy migration from another platform.

    Allow either contact type of Resource or simply allow room bookings to be forwarded to an smtp address during coexistence. This will simplify coexistence and lessen the impact to customers during migration and coexistence.
