  1. 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…

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. A simple visual email hierarchy to show the levels of access for email accounts in a business

    As a small business owner, most of the IT is carried out in-house. We find the email admin hierarchy for Office 365 extremely difficult to understand. This confusion allowed an IT contractor to gain access to all our email accounts and destroy them all, then hack our website and hold us to ransom. The damage is in the region of $100,000. If we had been able to see clearly and simply the email access hierarchy in our business, we would have identified the risk. As it was, we did not know he had set up global admin access for himself…

  11. Delete last line of the text in encrypted email of office 365

    Please delete the line "Sign in using the following email address: "

    this line does not make any sense since the recipient is already signed in to this particular email account.

  13. Show the number of licenses for project-based

    It would be great if the number of licenses would be shown as project-based in the Licenses page in Microsoft 365 admin center.

  14. Detailed Email Reporting / Metrics / Analytics

    I would think a more accurate email activity report would be fundamental for admin users and organizations.

    Currently I can get a (7)-(30)-(90)-(180) day breakdown of email activity in and out but that report does not allow me to see the graph by user (it does allow for a table) but the table only shows a breakout of those time periods and does not allow me to have a daily breakdown of activity per user which would be nice.

    Thank you, I hope to see this in the near future.

  15. Make it easier to setup features for all Microsoft online services

    Need simple wizards to setup features that aren't domains and users. Like Teams and telephony. I shouldn't have to go to multiple admin centers to perform a task or turn on a feature.

  16. Import PST files or SharePoint data to Office 365

    Microsoft offer a service to import pst files into Office 365 in case your organization does not have sufficient WAN bandwidth or a large mailbox size (e.g. 1TB or more). However, Microsoft does not commit a response time and it is unclear as to how long it takes for the files to be uploaded once they receive the drive. In our case it takes between one and two weeks. There is no proactive notification either leaving the requestor to regularly check when the upload gets processed. With no committed response times, the service is best effort delivery and any attempt…

  18. Include a DISPLAY type of switch for Outfile/Export cmdlets

    For Outfile/Export powershell cmdlets, include a switch which will also optionally display the results as they are also being saved to the file, but also on the screen/shell window.

  19. receive an email when a tenant administrator log in

    I would like to receive an email when a tenant administrator log in to our Office 365 environment.

    The mail should be send to different mailadresses so when a tenant administrator logs in after workhours we are notified instantly. It would also be great to receive a message when a failed login happens for the tenant administrator.
