  1. Azure AD Connect Hash Password Not Syncing

    When Microsoft Azure AD Sync service is failed with error logon failure, the subsequent problem is password is not syncing correctly.


    1. I would change the AAD_xxxxxx password in AD Users and Computer.

    2. The Azure AD Connect would for couple days then password synchronization will not.

    3. Was on the Microsoft Tech Support call many time on this issue. Had tried many thing and check and recheck the attribute setting.

    4. Synchronization Service Manager shows the Update in export statistics. But, password still not sync to the Office365 Admin Center.

    5. I will have to uninstall and install Azure AD Connect so that HASH…

  2. A one click option to turn on "The Help system" when not turned off by administrator, but apparently by the user. Anyone?

    A one click option to turn on "The Help system" when not turned off by administrator, but apparently by the user. Anyone?

    A big thumbs down to those MSFT people who apparently linked the horrendously awful "Cortana" to the ability to use the HELP SYSTEM and to the ability to use AUTOSAVE. That was a malicious idea.

  3. Bug Fix: "Edit Settings" Button In Portal

    When I click on the "Edit Settings" button in 0365 Portal nothing happens - no pop-up screen, no sub-menu, nothing that gives me, as an admin, the ability to customize the 0365 experience. I've reported to tech support and they're having the same problem and suggest I flag here.

  5. External Email notification

    External email recipient warning.

    Would it be possible to alert the sender that the email they are sending is heading to recipient outside of their organisation?

    Regards

  6. detected malware should have a description

    when an email is deleted due to detected malware, there is no information associated with the detection, other than the malware name. This name, sometimes, is not even listed in the threat encyclopedia. We are not able to determine if it is a possible false positive or if it is a real threat. And the attachment is gone at this point. The attachment should be available for further analysis as well.

  9. alert policy

    Alert Policy

    I could not edit the Alert policy to limit the scope to specific users by navigating Alerts - Alert Policies. Instead I have to navigate to https://protection.office.com/managealerts or Alerts-Dashboard ->Activity alerts - New Alerts. I have to delete existing policy and create a new one

  14. Domain verification documentation update for 123-reg.co.uk

    THe official documentation on how to verify a domain for O365 has a small but very annoying problem. This problem is related to the domains registered through 123-reg.co.uk, here are the problems:

    1) MX validation cannot be used (123-reg will not allow you to add the requested MX value, saying it is an invalid value)
    2) TXT validation NEEDS TO HAVE A DOT after the MS=msXXXXXXXX value. The dot is crucial, otherwise the domain will never get validated. Please update documentation to reflect this, value should be MS=msXXXXXXXX. for domains registred trough 123-reg.co.uk

  15. have a dropdown option in the GAL for nested distribution lists

    For nested distribution lists, have a dropdown in the global address list which shows just the nested groups (and not the individual users) so the user can simply click on a plus sign on the parent distribution list in the GAL and choose the nested distribution list.
    and
    make the "notes" field editable in powershell for AD synced distribution lists. (they are currently editable in o365 groups)

  16. Better visibility

    The format of Office 365 has all the menus as white almost ghost like icons. I am finding it VERY hard to read. Is it possible to revert back to the old icons which have more colour contrast and better visibility.

    It is a real struggle to see the pale on pale format.

  17. Get more details from Email activity report when using Office 365 usage report

    I would like you to add a type of action; getting the capacity of email items reports from the Email activity widget which in Office 365 admin center >Reports > Usage. It would be nice to obtain such details to investigate network load, because we have a network delay problem for certain amount of time in our tenant, and it’s hard to get details from each user’s mailbox.

  18. Provision services more efficiently

    I have wasted about 9 hours of my time today and over 3 days last week just to provision emails for a client of mine on Office 365. I've spent hours back and forth with the MS support team whilst they tried to resolve the provision of 17 emails last Thursday /Friday/ Saturday. Finally leaving my office at 9.30 on Friday evening! Only to find that by adding another email today I was faced with the same failings on your part- and hours back and forth again over 3 hours. As a self-employed person I have not earnt an income…

  19. Notifications from calendar to IOS device, now! The Tx msg work around is less functional and formatted like '93 MS DOS

    Please give me calendar notifications to my IOS device like every other two bit app on the market. the work around with text messages looks terrible. how did someone forget to include notification functionality for a CALENDAR app??!! One of the essential functions here is letting me know what I need to do, right? Also, the integrated calendar/email app is only useful when scheduling appointments. when it comes to reviewing what one has to do it falls short. Both native IOS and Gmail apps are way ahead of outlook in this respect. Please catch up, you can do it!

  20. Signin Office Online

    With domain offiсe365.com I can reset the password but can not enter. I wrote a letter in support, it was decided just today. Because of this problem, I could not get into your account 4 days. Please remove the ability to reset your password on Office365.com or enable signin This is not very convenient, considering that the 1.5 years I went through Office365.com normally.
