  1. 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.

  2. I would like to get an uptime graph for an specific tenant, instead of an uptime report for the whole datacenter

    I would like to get an uptime graph for an specific tenant, instead of an uptime report for the whole datacenter.
    Right now we can only get the Regional uptime graph and a tenant-level availability report will be much more helpful.

  3. 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

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  12. Check if Automapping is enabled on a shared mailbox for all users or a particular user

    It is easy to enable/disable automapping but it would be nice to see the current state of automapping for shared mailboxes for all users or a particular user

  13. Support a Catch All email address

    Looking to get a catch all email address feature. When we were with godaddy, they had this feature to catch all emails. Example, if email is addressed to richie@domain.com, it was misspelled by the sender and typed in richee@domain.com, we want it to go in to catchall@domain.com. Of info and the typed ifno@domain.com, we wan to retain that to our catchall@domain.com email address.

    Thank you.

    Use of a catch all is strongly discouraged. It is better to provide a bounce back to the sender letting senders know their message could not be delivered as addressed so they can take action. You can also limit the monitored mailbox to only catch formerly valid email addresses.

    Any catch all mailbox will receive a good deal of spam and may eventually fill if not closely monitored. (There are receiving limits.)

    If you decide to proceed, follow these steps:
    -———————————————————————————————
    1. Create a Dynamic Distribution Group & include “All Recipient Types.”

    2. Create a dedicated Mailbox to catch emails, for example, catchall@domain.com.

    3. For the specific domain, set the DomainType to “InternalRelay”. If you later remove the catch all, be sure to set the domain back to Authoritative.

    4. Create a Mailflow Transport Rule as follows:

    - If the Sender is “Outside the Organization”
    - Redirect the…

  14. 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.

  15. Last use of Visio/Project

    Its should be great to have the info "last used" for Visio 365 and Project to manage precisely how many licenses we effectively need.
    Its too easy to buy a new license each time a user need one.

    We do not use exchange

    License management is a hard job and useful info like this can make life easier

    Often, people ask for Visio or Project. They keep the software for "life" even if not used anymore.

    This is my job to check if a software is used or not and revoke the license if needed. I'm sure the "last use"…

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. Partner Admin Restrictions

    We have now enforced all our techs to use the partner admin to restrict and log access but some of the restrictive features are really causing us issues particularly some of the things that are done on a daily basis like converting user mailboxes to shared.

    I logged a ticket with MS who provided the following details on what is restricted to techs using the delegated partner admin portal.

    delegated admin will have no access to
    1. Cannot convert User Mailbox to Shared Mailbox ( Vice versa )
    2. Will not be able to export eDiscovery results.
    3. Cannot delete…
