  1. Administrator should manage domains as "sub-tenents" in isolation

    Administrator should be able to manage each domain separately. For Example in One Drive, if you try to share a folder, the invitation list will show users in other domains. This also goes for sharing Sharepoint Team documents. Administrator should have administer each domain as a separate group (like sub-tenents) Creating a tenant for each client requires an additional Administrator license which is redundant. One tenant Administrator should be able to manage multiple small customers in separate domains as sub-tenants which can be totally isolated. If you have many small clients this is necessary. If you have an enterprise having…

  2. 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.

  3. Backup the exchange mailboxes! There is no exchange backup in office365.

    When a number of "user created" exchange folders were hard deleted by mistake, we opened a premier case - 116120615030507. To make a long story short, we found out that there is no exchange backup of the exchange mailboxes in this case. If items are accidentally hard deleted by the customer, there is no recovery of the mailbox. This is a worse situation than we had on premise, where we could restore mailboxes.

    Accidents happen, nobody is flawless and and you have to be able to restore from backup. We actually had to use a combination of mfc mapi and…

  4. Report which shows the amount of OneDrive for Business storage per user.

    Hello,

    It would be great to be able to compile reports which show the OneDrive for Business usage per user.

    Reporting this idea by suggestion of Andy Sek:

    RE: Check OneDrive for Business size per user
    Reply by Andy Sek MSFT Support
    Hi Andy,
    Currently, there is no report that includes the OneDrive for Business storage usage for each user. You may need to use the Global administrator account to access each OneDrive for Business to have a check.
    To be honest, to get a report is a good idea. To better serve you, we would suggest that you submit…

    We are currently working on this report. We will have a OneDrive site usage report that not only shows how much storage each OneDrive user is consuming, but also how many files they have on the site, and how much activity that site is experiencing.

  5. Allow read only access to Office 365 portal Control Panel

    Please provide read only access feature for O365 Admin center

  6. RSS feed for Service Health Dashboard

    RSS feed for Service Health Dashboard is not available anymore.
    Now User can get service health notifications from the Office 365 Admin mobile app.

    But the previous RSS feed was also fruitful service since User can download it by Outlook Client.
    Re-release RSS feed for Service Health Dashboard will be an ideal feature for many Users.

    This feedback is based on a customer voice from support SR.

  7. Usage reports for SharePoint

    Provide centralized usage reports for entire SharePoint Online tenant such as page views, user sessions, usage per site collection, etc. Individual site collection reports are ok but are not centralized.

    We are working on many of these report areas right now. We have a tenant-wide user activity report in development right now. The next report we will work on will be a tenant-wide site usage and activity report. After that, we will look at various other tenant-wide reports, including page-views, and storage metrics.

  8. 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.

  9. The ability to assign admin roles to security groups

    In large environments (mine is 80,000 users!) it is necessary to have a the various admin roles split across several teams and personnel. To control this easier it would be great if I could use security groups from AD sync'd to AAD then assign the admin role(s) to the group instead of individually to users.

  10. Provide external user access to shared mailbox created inside the organization

    There should be option to provide external user access to shared mailbox.
    Currently only internal user with license have access to shared mailbox. But there should be option such that external users can be added as member of shared mailbox created inside the organization since shared mailbox have feasibility to co-ordinate with external domain.

  11. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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

  15. 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.

  16. 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

  17. Be able to query Office 365 license expiry date via PowerShell

    We want to be able to pull license expiry reports via other tools to keep our expiry reports consistent (IT Glue in this case). I can query many things by Office365 PowerShell module, including the license types, but I cannot query the dates in which these expire.
    Why does this ability not exist? Can we get that exposed as part of the Office 365 powershell commandlets

  19. 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..

  20. 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.
