  2. "All Users" is no longer available in the new view of People

    The new view in Office 365 no longer presents "All Users" as an option under People. Currently there is only Contact, Contact Lists etc. The "All Users" function was in the old classic view. This should be considered a break/fix situation and reestablished as an option in People. Currently there is a minimal work around by going into Outlook and clicking on "New Message" and then clicking on either To, CC, or Bcc. The function "All Users" is still listed there.

    Contacts do not need to contain all the users in an organization, so placing them there is not the…

  4. When Activating Yammer the Domain Selected for Activation Should be Larger

    When activating Enterprise Yammer the domain that the action is being taken on should be larger ..... or you should display a screen that says you will be activating Enteprise Yammer on domains abc.com to help ensure that the right domain is selected.

  5. Register admin account recovery information

    WE should be able to register admin account recovery information, like email or phone number so admins don't get locked out of their accounts.

  6. Personal changes in Account settings or PowerShell changes in Account settings should be universal to all Office 365 access methods.

    My main point pertains to email replies. When a change is made in an Account setting (ex. changing the default setting of a reply to "Reply" instead of "Reply All") the change should be enabled in all areas of Office 365. Currently the above example is only done in the area above the email in the home line. The area within the email still shows all reply methods. The other than default methods should be placed only in back of the three dots. Also, the change does not show up in the mobile app. This still defaults to "Reply All"…

  7. Hyper link Control

    Currently clicking on an email hyper link will send the user to two areas. If the user is using an on-line web Office 365 (E2 licence) and clicks on the link in people or calendar they will be sent to their on line Outlook, but if they are in Delve, Yammer, Word, Excel or other Microsoft or other manufacturer application they will be sent to their in system version of Outlook 2016 if they have one. This gives an inconsistent result to the end user and in some cases sends them to a different email address. For instance if their…

  8. Set the value other than ‘0’ for BookingWindowInDays and MaximumDurationInMinutes attributes when you create a resource mail box via Microso

    When you create a resource mail box via Microsoft 365 admin center, the value for BookingWindowInDays and MaximumDurationInMinutes attributes are set as ‘0’ automatically. It would be great this behavior would be improved to allow setting other value.

  9. Fix bug in cart of new console

    Could not buy a subscription after the trial when using the new console - it just locked up (was using Chrome browser). Had to switch to the old (less attractive) console to complete the purchase

  10. Provide support ticket system for internal use

    As admin for our tenant I'd like to have the possibility to add a support ticket system to our intranet letting end users ask questions - get suggestions on KB articles and if still needed create a ticket that gets routed to our internal IT

    The interface for this is already there, why not let your tenants use it - it would probably reduce the amount of tickets being sent to MS.

  11. In case of POP3 the size of the .pst needs to be increased from 2GB to 5GB.

    The reason why it needs to be done is because after the recent changes done by Microsoft syncing Sent box also with Office365, users are getting frequent error message "mail box full" and as a result every time user needs to login in office 365 to delete old messages from Sent/Inbox box. This is causing lot of inconvenience to users.

  12. Restrict access to Exchange Online to approved IPs like Sharepoint

    IP address restriction to the local network should be a default option for Exchange Online. It is included for Sharepoint, but I have to purchase conditional access if I want to lock down EOL. Properly securing EOL should be a standard offering.

  13. No permitir hacer reuniones o reservar una sala cuando la reserva se haga sobre el horario de alguien mas

    Tenemos problemas con la reserva de salas de reuniones ya que al hacer una reserva con una hora en la cual ya se ha hecho una reserva previa, el sistema devuelve un mensaje de que la reserva se ha hecho con exito cuando debería devolver un mensaje indicando que la sala ya esta reservada para esa hora y que el usuario debe buscar otro horario

    Saludos

  14. A function to change the date and time only from a specific calendar item when registering a regular schedule

    In the current calendar, when a recurring schedule including a conference room is reserved, if the schedule cannot be reserved from the start to the end, the schedule is declined by the conference room.

    With this, when planning a long-term recurring schedule, if there are already acquired schedules, it will be very troublesome to create several schedules when creating the schedule.

    Furthermore, there are some cases in which the schedule is registered as it is in the calendar of the person who made the reservation, and is mistaken for [schedule was taken].

    Therefore, I want the function to be able…

  15. Please add Bulk white-list public IP address with EOP.

    Please add Bulk white-list public IP address with EOP.
    Huge organization does have range of IP addresses bought from ISP and if the range is blocked it creates problem.
    Recently found that even as admin we can not whitelist these IP address in bulk.
    Hence requesting to add this feature.

  17. Changes to "Email Forwarding" in Microsoft 365 Admin Centre doesn't show up in "Exchange Admin Centre".

    Changes to "Email Forwarding" in Microsoft 365 Admin Centre doesn't show up in "Exchange Admin Centre".

    This is more a bug than a feature currently the solution mentioned on phone was to Re-apply the "Email Forwarding" via Exchange Admin Centre & it will show up on Microsoft 365 Admin Center.

    Steps to Replicate issue:-

    Microsoft 365 Admin Center
    1) Click "Groups" - "Shared Mailboxes"
    2) Click on a entry & setup "Email Forwarding"
    (I used a "MailUniversalDistributionGroup")
    (Tick "Forward all emails sent to this mailbox" + "Keep a copy of forwarded email in this mailbox)

    Exchange Admin Centre
    1) Click…

  19. Implement a feature that can block Calendar sharing from external users

    I would like you to implement a feature that can block Calendar sharing from external users.
    I would like to block the external users for Calendar sharing by original sharing user.

    We can use such as transport rules to block external users; however, other mails which have same subject name would be also blocked when using transport rules. So, we are not happy about the result.
