  1. 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…

  2. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. Office 365 audit log

    From an admin experience of Office 365, we would like to recommend to enable the audit log by default upon creating any new office 365 account.

  9. Name not translated in the FROM field of emails sent to users

    Can you translate the name of the FROM field in emails that are sent to users. For example, the user creation email which includes the following information: "Microsoft on behalf of your organization" <ms-noreply@microsoft.com>. In addition, it will be interesting for it to be customizable.

  10. 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…

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  15. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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?

  20. 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!
