  2. Get-Clutter Cmdlet information by Get-Mailbox

    Admin User can run Get-Clutter Cmdlet to see the setting of each User.
    But some user prefers to be able to obtain the information by Get-Mailbox Cmdlet.

    The additional feature would be a manageable function for Admin Users.

    This feedback is based on a customer voice from support SR.

  3. CRM "Buy more storage" — Direct Link needed

    CRM is fond of telling us via notification bars and via Email that we're close to using all our storage. However, there is no EASY way to buy more. It took a call to Microsoft Support, who also couldn't find out where to Add more storage to CRM! Whenever a user needs to purchase something else for their solution, there should be a direct link that allows the Admin to buy more storage with a few simple clicks!

  4. application mailbox

    Many of our clients use shared mailboxes for applications. This poses a challenge when we're distinguishing these mailboxes from typical Shared Mailboxes. There needs to be more emphasis on what designates a Shared Mailbox. This also includes the licensing structure for Application Mailboxes.

    A quick solution would be for the "RecipientTypeDetails" attribute, located under the Get-Mailbox cmdlet, to have "ApplicationMailbox" as an option for distinguishing application mailboxes.

  5. Add a note about each device on the Office 360 admin page.

    Office 360 family subscription. Like most families we have a bunch of old pc's and laptops that are not used any more. The admin page has entries like "LAPTOP-4UBFGMRE". I would like to enter a note about what each device is. This would allow me to easily know that laptop is my daughters old laptop and I can remove the license from it and use it elsewhere.

  7. In Teams, user name for external user is displayed as alias( xyz@contoso.com) instead of First and Last Name

    When a user adds an external user in Teams, instead of First and Last name, Alias/UPN is displayed. This causes a lot of confusion if the user has many external contacts.
    Skype for Business has this feature and because of this issue, Teams Only migration is not suitable for many users.

  8. Make it possible to restore e-mail folder and e-mails

    It would be really useful if we could restore an e-mail folder and the e-mail that was in it. Even if I get back the e-mails, users do not have any way of knowing those e-mails were in that folder.

  9. Add Cloud Security App part of the new O365 portal look and feel

    When I view O365's new look and feel portal, I found that I could not access the Cloud Security App under any category.

    Please add Cloud Security App to the section titled ...."All Admin Centers"

  10. Using PowerShell command to get or export the detailed and readable value for the mailbox permissions made by the admins

    using powershell we need to export the admin log ie.,changes done for a mailbox by a admin. currently only O365 admin console returns the parameter value. Powershell returns system generated values.

  11. Allow shared mailbox to have E3 license added to it without converting it to a regular mailbox

    We have a shared mailbox which has grown to 50GB. I found that an E3 license cannot be assigned to it to increase the size to 100GB without converting it to a regular mailbox, losing the functionality of the shared mailbox. Please let us assign a license to increase the size.

  13. Dump the mobile browser setup of this app, and create a true iOS/iPadOS application.

    This app scales weird, and does not work with Dark Mode In the latest iteration of iOS/iPadOS. It feels like this is running on some sort of bundled Chromium web browser, that is oblivious to mobile device display settings.

  14. Software Download Settings - Custom Message

    Allow administrator to create a custom message that is displayed when users attempt to download and install Office apps locally. This would allow for disclaimers, legal statements, and instructions to be provided when an organization only uses the portal install method for off-network installs.

    It would be great that we could easily access different admin centers for multiple tenants without switching browsers.

  16. Allow team members to externally share folders and files... but not allow them to delete them.

    It is not possible for Team Members to externally share folders and files, while making sure they are not able to delete or affect the folders. It is important for us to have our teams access all files and share documents with outside customers... but I do not want to give them the ability to delete these core folders. The only way to externally share folders, is to also have the delete function enabled.

  17. Use Admin portal tasks to generate PowerShell

    The various admin portals are fine for small tasks, and the use of PowerShell for automation of larger tasks is great. However, we really need to link these two together in a meaningful way. At the moment, if you intent to automate something via PowerShell, you need to read all manner of examples and docs, then attempt to write the scripts yourself; often needing different modules, different commands, and concerning different tenants SKUs. This is all further complicated, as existing documentation might suggest the use of a module such as MSOnline for certain activities, even though the support was actually…

  19. Invite customers with the location adres

    We invite our customers on a regular bases at out headquarters in Amsterdam and we send them invites using Outlook 2016 (with Office 365). In the Outlook invite we add a Room and that Room Name is populated to the Location Field, not the Room Address. So the client gets an e-mail with the Location: Meeting Room 0 instead of Location like a adres. We’ve filled all Contact Information for Meeting Room 0 in Exchange and in the Office 365 portal, but the location field in Outlook keeps being populated with the Room Name instead of the Room Address. Is…

  20. Trying to block an attachment with the naming convention of doc*.pdf. Do to the limitations, we are unable to wildcard the attachment name

    Attempting to use 2 separate statements for any file beginning with doc and any extension ending with PDF. This will block a single attachment that matches. But if the email has multiple valid attachments, that begin with doc and a different valid attachment that ends with PDF, that message will be blocked. Need an option to wildcard the name.
