  1. Exchange ActiveSync quarantine should include the (public) IP address the mobile was quarantined from

    This would make it easier for an administrator to know it the mobile is in the hand of a legitimate user before approval.

    • mfa one-time-bypass

      The one-time-bypass feature is only available for Azure MFA with server/sdk implementations.

      We use Azure MFA in a cloud-only setup. We don't have any server/sdk running. We would like to use the one-time-bypass feature.

      • Email PDF bills rather then requiring users to logon and retrieve them.

        We currently have 3 different domains using 365 business premium and would like the bills emailed to us every month rather then having to log in and download the PDF statements/Invoices.

        If its possible to add this feature it would be much appreciated

          • Set DKIM key size to 2048 by default

            Set DKIM key size to 2048 by default

            As many audits consider 1024 bit too low for today.

              • Parental Access to Office 365 and Student Content

                We need a better way other than PAL for teachers to access student data in Office 365. The Share option is not a viable option when most schools have over 100 parents and needs to scale to 100,000s. If there was a parent SKU in which permissions could then be assigned to the student content, it would allow us as partners to develop solutions. We've been asking for 2 and half years and keep hearing, that's good feedback. Cheers

                • Switch tenant in portal.office.com aka make portal accessible by B2B guests

                  Currently it is not possible to switch the AD tenant in portal.office.com like you can in portal.azure.com.
                  Without that is is not possible to Access the O365 Admin Panel as an B2B guest account that has Global Admin or EXO/SPO permissions.
                  Login always takes me to my home tenant with my mailbox.

                  It is also not possible to do this by PowerShell.

                  So please make it possible to use portal.office.com Admin Section as an B2B guest otherwise it makes no sense that I can for example assign Exchange Admin permissions to an B2B user.

                  • Ability to rename initial domain

                    Allow renaming of initial domain. Would save a large amount of resources if the company did not have to setup and migrate to a new tenant organisation if the company name changed, eg for a merger/split.

                    • Change landing page for login

                      Allow the portal log-in landing page to be changed for the entire organization as the administrator. For example, instead of being directed to Outlook, the user is directed to the share point site. I realize users can do this for themselves, but I'd like the ability to do it for them as the administrator.

                      • Delegated Admin (Partner) able to convert tennant mailbox to shared.

                        Currently there is an issue with permissions if you use the partner delegated admin to convert a user to a shared mailbox. You must log into the tenant as a global admin in order to accomplish this.

                        As a delegated admin we should be able to manipulate mailboxes as needed to ensure an enjoyable client experience.

                        • Ability for global administrator to remove app from app launcher for all users

                          Ability for app to be globally removed from the app launcher - as opposed to telling 50,000+ to unpin it themselves.

                          • Read only version of the Tenant Admin account.

                            I would like to have a Read only version of the tenant admin. This is great to give to security to do there audits as well as anyone doing there checks on settings for audit purposes.
                            Buy having this you dont need to give full tenant R/W access to staff that dont really need it or know what they are really doing. All the Get commands work but not the set commands..

                            • Enable "SensitiveType" Compliance searches in Exchange Online/User Mailboxes

                              Our compliance officer sometimes needs IT to run a search for Credit Card numbers in our Billing Team's mailbox to ensure they aren't getting stored there.

                              Office 365 has a "SensitiveType" tag that apparently can be used for performing searches against SharePoint Online & OneDrive.

                              It would be very useful if this functionality could be extended to Exchange Online.

                              According to the following article:

                              Introducing Compliance Search in Office 365
                              https://blogs.office.com/2015/06/17/introducing-compliance-search-in-office-365/

                              It seems like these search tags should already be available but when I try to use them I get an error.

                              Please Enable the "SensitiveType" searh ability to Exchange…

                              • Please, turn off "REPLY ALL" as the default!

                                With the latest upgrade REPLY ALL has been elevated to the default option for responding to email. Please no. REPLY ALL is often lethal and even more often annoying in large organizations. And if you do leave it that way, at least see if the organization hosting the OFFICE 365 can default it for everyone instead of individuals having to go in and complete the action of returning the default to just REPLY (which is somewhat buried I might add)

                                  It is better to manage the conversation of Microsoft Team. I suggest we could delete conversation or we could remove at least the member of conversation.

                                  • Allow conversion of distribution groups into security groups

                                    It would be beneficial to provide an easy way to convert a pre-existing distribution group into a security group or vice versa without having to recreate the entire group again. Can you add a simple way to change the type of an existing group?

                                    • Report Reader Role

                                      Have a reporting admin role that can view all reports but does not have admin access to be able to be able to modify exchange, sharepoint etc. This would be a great role for CTO's or other top level management that don't need configuration rights.

                                      • Exchange Online PowerShell Module - Publish to PowerShell Gallery as an actual function

                                        Please publish the Exchange Online PowerShell Module used for MFA to the PowerShell Gallery (www.powershellgallery.com) to allow for easier installation.

                                        The clickOnce installer is a bit of a non-standard installation for most people used to working with standard PowerShell modules.

                                        Please see:

                                        • Save SMTP-based emails sent via an Office 365 account in Outlook's Sent Items folder!

                                          We followed Microsoft's instructions exactly for sending SMTP-based emails from a software application via a paid Microsoft Office 365 email account. However, the SMTP-based emails do not appear in and/or sync with Microsoft Office 365's Sent Items folder! Thus, we cannot see these SMTP-based emails via Microsoft Outlook 2016's desktop client or Outlook.com! Please integrate SMTP-originated emails into Microsoft Outlook's Sent Items folder! Thank you!
