  1. 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.

  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 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.

  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. 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

  6. Custom fonts in Word Online

    Our company's official font we use for all our documents doesn't exist in Office online.
    Please give us a way to upload custom fonts to our tenant using admin center so our users can use those fonts in Word Online

  7. 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"…

  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. 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?…

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

    Please provide read only access feature for O365 Admin center

  11. 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

  12. 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.

  15. 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.

  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. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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…
