  1. Allow sharepoint to use a vanity domain for the URL rather than tenant.sharepoint.com

    Currently our SharePoint uses tenant.sharepoint.com but I would ideally like this to be changed to intranet.mydomain.com or extranet.mydomain.com. It seems I can't use my vanity domain name for a SharePoint site or have multiple top level sites such as intranet and extranet for different purposes.

  2. Transfer ownership of OneDrive Business

    Any steps to transfer the ownership of files and folder from OneDrive account to another?
    Your competitor can do it, but OneDrive... NO

  3. Change initials on microsoft office

    It would be great if we could change the initials in the colored circle on outlook. I am able to change it on word, excel, etc. so it would be awesome to do this on outlook too.

  4. Expand Email Activity Report to Include Shared Mailboxes

    Currently, the Email Activity Report only presents data for user mailboxes. Expanding this report so that it could include shared mailbox types would be great, as we use shared mailboxes for "contact us" and "support@" mailboxes for may of our customers. Being able to show email volume for these mailboxes over specific date / time ranges would be a great help!

  5. Configure Preferences for Report Message Add-In

    The Report Message Add-In can be deployed centrally but there should be a method to control the settings/preferences in it centrally. For example, set the default option for reporting preference (e.g. always send, never send, ask every time). This should be configurable somewhere (e.g. registry key, GPO, Centralized Deployment manager, Exchange Online policy, etc. The default to ask every time is not the setting we want for our organization, but there is no way currently to reconfigure the default. Please reconsider this.

  6. SharePoint Document Library limit of 5000 - Ridiculous

    We planned to migrate from Dropbox to a SharePoint document library and when implemented, we immediately hit the 5000 item limit in a library. This is ridiculous in 2018. We have used folders with over 35,000 files on Dropbox without any issues. This is an unfortunate limit for a product that is called Office365 for business.

    Please increase this limit or provide another means to load and backup large datasets.

  7. Dynamic distribution group based on domain

    It seems impossible to create a DDL based on the domain name, because the recipient filter does not accept wildcard at first position in the -like condition.

  8. Create new Remote Shared Mailboxes from hybrid

    Allow the creation of new remote mailboxes that are 'shared' mailboxes. At present, you have to create a regular user mailbox and then after you have synchronized this to Office 365, you then have to login to the 365 admin portal and convert it to shared. The problem with this method is that the user object on premises will always be shown as an office 365 mailbox and not an office 365 shared mailbox. Just a bit messy.

  9. Hide users in Teams/Delve/Other O365 Apps that are not using Exchange GAL for address/user list

    Currently a user can only be hidden in Exchange Online, not Teams. If you want to prevent a user from being shown in a list of user in other O365 apps such as Teams you are out of luck, they don't use the Exchange GAL. There is no way to prevent a user from being listed in a user search. My specific issue is that I want to hide some users from being found in Teams when you search to add users to a Team (federated user and cloud only users). I opened a case with Microsoft and was told…

  10. 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…

  13. Enable DKIM for Office 365 Home with custom email domain

    The Office 365 Home subscription allows you to use your your own email domain. However, there is no option to enable DKIM and without it, outgoing email often ends up in the recipient's Spam folder, making the custom email domain capability useless.

    Please expose the DKIM setting on the UI for O365 Home subscribers.
    The feature itself is already implemented and available in the Business edition, but requires the Admin panel which does not exist in Office 365 Home.

  14. clear dirsync errors from dashboard

    within settings ---> dirsync errors, there is no way to clear out old errors that have been resolved. We also get weekly emails saying we have dirsync errors in which we do not have any current ones, rather it is a summary of old errors we have that makes us think we have current synchronization errors. This has came up on a support posting: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/msofficeo365admin-msoother-mso_o365b/how-to-clear-dirsync-error-report/97b43be7-5155-4a75-b69e-9782efdd161b

    please add a way to clear out old errors from this dashboard.

  15. 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…

  16. Block users to change the password

    Dears,

    I come across this message prompts enable resource for previunir / block user to the password change your e-mail account. We migrated a solution to the cloud and it had these options. Another thing that I see in the product is denying changing account information.

    We need it very urgently.

  17. setting regional timezones for onedrive users

    It seems that when a user is created in 365, their OneDrive regional and Locale setting is defaulted to US. We would like to be able to change the default for the tenant at the 365 admin level.

  18. Be able to provide only the Service Health information to non-admin users.

    There are multiple IT departments and Power Users on campus who would like to have access to the up-to-date Service Health dashboard in our O365 tenant. Current this is locked behind a login that has to have the "Service Health" role. the problem with this role is that it will also grant these users access to create O365 support tickets and limited other admin functions that these users are not allowed to have.

  20. Remove case sensitive searches for shared mailboxes and permissions

    Over the last month or so case sensitive searches have been added into the shared mailbox and permissions sections on the Office 365 admin page. Could these be reverted back or was there a reason for case sensitive searches being added?

    I had weeks of no results coming back until I spoke to Microsoft Support who also have the issue and they noticed it is now case sensitive.
