  1. Indicate Guest UserState ("Accepted" vs. "PendingAcceptance") in Teams

    To identify which Guests have accepted invitations to their respective teams (and registered/created login/password accounts), Azure AD admin center has to be consulted. In Teams, registered & unregistered appear simply as Guest, but unregistered cannot participate in chats, share files, come to meetings through lobby, aren't copied on team-/channel-wide communications, etc. Make that distinction clearly apparent to the other team members, so they know what to expect.

  2. Register Teams as the chat app for Office (requires restarting Office applications) via admin portal

    As we are not yet in a position to migrate fully into Teams only mode we would like to enable Register Teams as the chat app for Office (requires restarting Office applications) for all of our users to ease migration. However the registry changes prove to be ineffective and the only option we have is to make the change manually from the users settings which is not a good option. Will this control ever be available for the admin portal in the very near future?

  3. Additional feature for Room/Equipment CalendarProcessing

    For Room/Equipment mailboxes where AutoAccept is turned on, it would be handy if there was a way to modify the default handling of conflicts regarding recurring meetings. For instance, if someone sends a recurring meeting request and conflicts are detected, just book around the conflicts and notify the meeting organizer that they need to find another resource for the conflicting time slots. Current behavior rejects the entire recurring meeting series if a conflict is found.

  4. Add and remove user from groups on the members of tab in ECP

    When a user is a member of multiple groups it takes a long time to add or remove them from these groups as you have to go to each group.

    I propose + and - buttons on a user’s member of page to enable adding and removing cloud based groups quickly and easily.

    There should be some kind of marker to indicate that a group is not cloud managed to make it stand out that it cannot be added to or removed from the user when the user is synced from on premises.

  6. Make it Even Remotely Work!

    Purchased Office 365 Business Premium alongside premium Dell desktop. Company Director - some IT knowledge ( a dangerous thing!) so not fully stupid.

    New company started last week. Off 5 working days to date, 2.5 have been on the phone to MS re 365. Here goes:

    Can't really tell if 365 installed
    Recurring 365 portal strangeness. White pages, can't get to admin, then can, then can't again
    Have myself as the one single user - after tech support managed to get Office suite 2016 installed and email working (hurray!)
    Needed to make an international call. Tried Skype for Business. Can't…

  7. Deleting Guest user

    I noticed that we can only delete guest users one by one in Microsoft Teams Admin Center. Can you guys please improve it to delete multiple users at once? I am deleting almost 100 of them and I can forsee doing this in half an hour instead of a minute task. Sigh

  9. search-mailbox create replacement for command

    Powershell MSOL - command search-mailbox has been removed so we don't have anymore an option to use it to empty a folder or deleted items from powershell or create automate scripts to cleanup.

  11. Make deactivated rules visible for administrators in "other user"

    So in case of illness of the user, admin can activate e.g. email forwarding rules quickly and user can deactivate them by themselves when they return. Absence notice and E-Mail forwarding would be so in the same area.

  13. Disable the function of Non-owner mailbox access

    Disable the function of Non-owner mailbox access

    Although the function of Non-owner mailbox access brings benefit to administrators or designated users to access other mailboxes, but it also brings security concern to a corporate that administrators can hack into the users' mailboxes without permissions. If this function can be disabled, it may definitely improve the security of the email system.

  15. Anonymize OneDrive for Business shared links

    When sharing a OneDrive for Business link outside the organization (anonymous link), the URL exposes the SharePoint tenant name, and the user's account name. It should be possible to share files to the outside without exposing this information by anonymizing the link to the file.

  17. Licenses from Multi Vendors cant be identified

    When you purchase Licenses from multiple Vendors, the Licenses is shown under the admin console as individual purchases, but when you click thru on the various licenses it just shows you ALL your vendors and not just the one which your purchased specific bundle from.

    so when you have to cancel some of the subcriptions it is unclear which vendor you need to send the instructions to.

    thanks

  19. Fix Outlook "Include Results Only From" Feature in Menu

    Based on what I've observed, the "Include Results Only From" feature located in Outlook > File > Options > Search, is broken. When selecting "all mailboxes" or "current mailbox" the default search location should change. This does not function at all (based on my experiences), I've tested this feature on multiple devices in different environments.

  20. quarantine

    Quarantine Retrieval speed should be improved. It is taking too long for end users as well as Global Admins to access the Quarantine. It averages around 3-5 minutes and in extreme cases up to 10 minutes for users to see their Quarantine emails.
