  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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

  7. 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.

    Hi all,

    We are investigating whether to implement this feature. As mentioned previously, this can be accomplished with a mail flow rule.

    We wanted to here from you and have set up an email address to get your feedback instead of having you publicly post them in the comments section.

    There is the risk that catch-alls will be turned on by organizations and just become a spam trap that is never looked at but using up large amounts of resources that affect our ability to provide fair use across the service. We are looking for the best solution to meet your needs and still protect our service.

    Here are a few questions:
    1. What is the type/size of your organization?

    2. Why do you want a catch all address?
    Is it for just misaddressed emails or emails to common addresses like postmaster@contoso.com that you do not have a mailbox for?…

  8. 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

  9. 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.

  10. 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"…

  11. Enable Transport Rule action for Distribution Group

    In Exchange Online or EOP, We cannot create a transport rule with the action set to Distribution Group.

    It errors as follows :

    The transport rule can't be created because group@domain.com, the recipient to be added by a rule action, is a distribution group. Transport rules can't add distribution groups to messages. To resolve this error, remove this recipient and specify a different one.

    Since there are workarounds to resolve, Can this be fixed directly without any error.

  12. Allow Users and Admin to subscribe existing group members to group conversations

    When new users are added to SharePoint groups, if the "Subscribe new members" check box is not on, the new members are not automatically subscribed. If the box is later checked, only newly added members are subscribed and existing members are not forcibly subscribed. It would be helpful to be able subscribe/un-subscribe specific or all members of a group after they are already in it.

  15. 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.

  16. 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…

  17. Allow Custom Branding for multiple domains in one tenant

    You are allowed to add a brand logo to the login page of the tenant. But what if you have 3 brands in the tenant? https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory/customize-branding

    Login page asks if I want to use a Microsoft or Office/School account. Why can't that be expanded to recognize the domain you log in with and redirect the use to a custom branding page?

  18. Demand to create an alert event such as "Failed user login"

    Hi,

    We would like to ask a demand to create an alert event such as "Failed user login".

    At the moment, you can't create such an alert activity as this because such a category/event doesn't exist in the list. This point has been confirmed to us by O365 support.
    The only way to see such an event is throufgh the security and compliance center by auditing an account manually.

    In circumtances such as brute force attack or attempt to hack an account, it will be extremely useful for an admin to receive such an information to take appropriate action.

    Thank…

  20. 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.
