  3. Buy/Build a simple file-share product.

    We are using Groups as a file share because Sharepoint is too complicated and users don't use it. MS tech support told me this is not what we should be doing. Too bad, MS sold me Office365. Buy a simple file share from another company which understands 'simple' and 'end users'. Suggest Citrix, ShareFile is a better product than SharePoint.

  5. Licensing should be automatic based on certain criteria such as security group membership. It should not be an addon for an additional fee.

    Licensing should be automatic based on certain criteria such as security group membership. It should not be an add-on for an additional fee. This is just basic administration. It's clunky and time-consuming doing it with a powershell script. When we briefly used OneLogin for provisioning this was all done immediately, there was no waiting for ADSync etc. I don't understand why MS can't implement something similar. The only reason we had to move away from OneLogin for provisioning had to do with distribution lists (another pet peeve of mine with MS).

  9. Popup in Apps Store says upgrade to 365 if using Mac OS High Sierra or higher then breaks system

    On 10/8, a pop up from my Apps Store said to upgrade Windows to 365 if using Mac OS High Sierra or greater. I downloaded 365 which turned out to be a Subscription I didn't want, and then my Windows was broken. I have a 2016 Office perpetual license. For the past 11 days, that's right, 11 days, MS support has been unable to remove 365 and re-instate my own perpetual license. I have therefore been unable for 11 days to use my Office application. What kind of product support is this? The Tech indicated 365 is NOT needed for…

  11. Option to add user name to subject of alert

    In the Cloud app security console, we have alerts sent to a service desk so we can record actions taken and track compromised users. Having the users identity in the subject line or at least having the option to include it would increase the alerts value when ported to a different tracking system. Presently we edit the alert subj after delivery to include the user involved for tracking.

  12. O365 Partner's assigned as Advisors are given misleading client subscription information...

    When administering a client, via the Partner Dashboard, I am only able to see incomplete/misleading subscription data, for the client. My specific example was a client who was on an O365 Business Premium Trial, who had purchased licenses through me was not showing any paid subscriptions, in their O365 Admin Portal. The client and I were receiving warnings about the Trial expiring and yet I was not able to see the paid subscriptions. I could kind of see parts of them, in the Licenses section, as I could see 28 licenses when the Trial only accounts for 25. So, whilst…

  13. Allow build in usel level access or restrictions to lists depending on list entries owners

    Allow build in usel level access or restrictions to lists depending on list entries owners or other username entries.
    For example, it would be nice if on the issue list, someone couldn't edit entries that is not relevant to him (his name is not included in any user field)

  15. I need to be able to set default calendar sharing to "People in my organization... Can view all details" for the entire organization.

    Setting calendar sharing so that people can understand what someone else is doing in a piecemeal fashion for each user is robbing my organization's productivity.

  17. A way for technicians / requester to hand over an O365 open support case to a colleague when they will be going on leave.

    When you have an open support case on your name there is NO WAY to hand that case to a colleague so when you go on leave that case ends up getting archived and no progress can be made.

  18. Create A Sign up Disclaimer Regarding 90 day billing policy

    Create A Disclaimer in the Signup Wizard which states how the Delay in billing process works and after 90 days all data is deleted if the full 90 days is not paid in full. This would save a lot in recovery time and questions regarding this issue on the backend. Encourage Customer to complete a temporary name for the onmicrosoft account if they are unsure of their commitment. (And start with a fresh account when they are committed).

  19. Multi-factor authentication usability issues for admins

    Multi-factor authentication should be seamless. It should be easy to turn on and off at the organization and user levels. Instead, it required several hours on the phone with support to get a handle on how to manage this feature. This and another issue, encountered during the trial period, have caused my customer to abort implementation of M 365.
