  1. 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.

  2. 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…

  3. Query Based Retention Policy

    Query Based retention policy currently only support keyword matching.

Just give us a text box to type in query statement.

  4. 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…

  5. 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.

  8. Admin center fails to create shared mail box and group for non-default domain

    There are some serious issues with exchange admin when we try to create a group or shared mailbox for a non-default domain. We have 2 domains. We were trying to create shared mail box and group for the domain that is not default domain. The group and shared mail box, that were created by exchange admin were not reachable from outside. Whenever we tried to send email from external user say @hotmail.com, the mails were bouncing back. After comparing settings for both of these with similar group and shared mail box in default domain, found out that the alias was…

  10. I want a function to deliver system mail in text format.

    Since the mail service used does not support HTML or rich text format, the contents of mail delivered from system mail are garbled.
    使用しているメールサービスはHTML形式またはリッチテキスト形式をサポートしていないため、システムメールから配送されるメールの内容が文字化けしている。
    For this reason, implement a function that can be set so that system mail is delivered in text format.
    そのため、システムメールがテキスト形式で配送されるように設定することが可能な機能が実装されてほしい。

  12. Manage individual users to groups in addition to Groups to users

    Right now you can only manage users access by going into the SharePoint groups and adding and removing people. This is very cumbersome when you have a large number of people in a group and have to go through the list page by page to find people in the middle, or when you have a person in many different groups due to the sensitivity of various areas in your site.

    So with that in mind it would be great to manage not only the people in groups within the groups, but also to manage the groups that a person who…

  15. Add Email Options to Exchange Online Contacts

    Add Email Options to Exchange Online Contacts so we don't have to create Mail User accounts (accounts + passwords than now need to be managed, tracked, audited, etc.). Email Options functionality exists in Exchange Online as the Hybrid server settings are pushed to the cloud and work. We just need the option added to the Contacts admin GUI.

  16. Antispam Check and Score

    It would be useful to have a quarantine report, where they are expressly indicated which controls and which scores are assigned to them, eg: RBL listed, bad reputation, spf error. Try to take LIBRAESVA as an example.

  19. Allow GUI based name changes in hybrid environment

    We processed a name change for a client employee. We made the change to the on-premise Active Directory, then ran DirSync to bring it to O365. After the change, we did not have the ability to edit the userid to the new email address, it was greyed out, nor could we add an alias and make it primary, it was also greyed out. We resolved the issue by running a Powershell command, but it's the kind of change that happens frequently, and should have been permitted in the GUI.

  20. Add attribute to All User report

    Please add "Company" attribute to the All Active User export file. Many big customers would like to have it there when they are matching billed subscriptions and users from different companies/subsidiaries.
