  1. 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.

  2. 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…

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  7. Allow £ sign in password creation

    I made a 50 character complex password that exceeded O365 requirements, but it was rejected as weak because it included the £ sign.
    It took me a long time to work out the problem. Please allow the £ sign in PW creation, or warn users it cannot be used. Thank you.

  9. Provide Encrytion (OME) without IRM

    Provide Encrytion (OME) without IRM. We need the ability to encrypt specific emails with office documents attached. Recipients have trouble with the saved files on their side due to IRM. We would like to turn IRM off but MS Support informs it is not possible without turning off encryption altogether. I like the idea of having IRM but I should have the ability to turn it off or at least configure it. From what I see it is just On or Off. MS Support informed me to post my suggestion here.

  10. Make it an option to get notifications for shared files sent with "Anyone with the link"

    When sharing files/folders set to "Anyone with the link" users do not get email notification when the files are accessed or downloaded. This is because of it being anonymous. Give an option to request notification. This is necessary as UserA sends link to ClientA. It is possible ClientA forwards to PersonB. UserA needs to know that both ClientA and PersonB are accessing the files.

  11. Archiving by pressing backspace is a trap

    We've had several users fall into the trap of Archiving by pressing backspace. Microsoft support recommend we change registry setting to turn this feature off. Is it possible to change this to something like shift backspace?

  12. DO NOT close or archive unresolved support issues, problems and cases!

    Do not close cases without solving the problems. I reported continuous, persistent errors and problems with our mail but Microsoft support closes or archives them repeatedly without offering a solution. It looks like the whole Microsoft support team is incompetent, careless and negligent. Even if I reopen the case, they admit the error, but close or archive them again. Bad bad service!

  13. Transport rule to block emails that the "From" and "Reply-To" do not match.

    We are getting lots of this kind of phishing emails and there is no transport rule to block them. I have submitted a ticket to support but they are not able to help out.

  14. Granular Usage Reporting

    It would be really nice to have granular usage information for our users.

    For example, our management would like to know...


    1. What users are activated but not using O365? Or which tool they are using or not using.


    2. What users are only using the tool very minimally? Like once a week or two weeks, etc.


    Our management always wants to know but we have never been able to provide that info.

    Thanks!

  15. Need logs for blocked incoming messages when using the Spamhaus Block List

    I would like the EXO message trace to take logs including error codes and status for blocked incoming messages from senders in the Spamhaus Block List, so that we can take immediate action in case of requesting unblock while checking NDR status for inbound/outbound messages in the message trace logs.

    EXO message trace doesn’t have logs for messages from senders in the Spamhaus Block List since incoming messages from those IP address would be blocked at the very first Exchange Online edge server.

  16. power bi sharepoint report import

    It would be necessary that the same import from a data source (or several origins) can be used for more than one report

    Especially for those small companies that publish the reports by WEB (all the pages are shown) and by cost they can not invest in PowerBI pro licenses, to integrate in sharepoint as an object and specify by office user which pages can be viewed.

    As it works now, it is necessary to carry out as many imports (and reports) as we have profiles

  18. Continue the Stream notification setting to be available which notifies when the quota reached to the threshold

    The option, Notify Microsoft Stream admins when configured quota threshold is reached will be decommissioned. But I would like to ask you to keep this option to be available.

  19. Allow an O365 tenant to have multiple configurable geo locations

    O365 can be limited to a zone such as the us. It would be great to choose where site collections are hosted and which region the data has to stay in.
