  2. 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..

  4. 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?

  5. delete microsoft team conversation

    It is better to manage the conversation of Microsoft Team. I suggest we could delete conversation or we could remove at least the member of conversation.

  6. Create a rule to strip attachments, but deliver rest of message.

    create a rule that searches for a specific attachment, and strips the attachment but delivers the rest of the message without admin intervention. Right now, all we can do is bounce the message back to the sender, or send for approval, which approves the whole message. For example, a need would arise with a sensitive file sent by Sr. Mgmt with general comments. The comments are fine, but the attached file is not something that should be sent outside the company. We need a way simply strip that attachment out by rule. It currently does not exist.

  8. Powershell timeout for O365 and Exchange Online

    Please allow a configurable timeout for powershell when connecting to O365 and EO. The timeout is too short right now and the new login requirements make it tedious to reconnect

  9. Allow us to increase the size of the junk mail/ safe sender list

    Allow us to increase the size of the junk / safe sender list. It was possible to do previously with local exchange servers and has impacted users when they are used to working one way and suddenly have to change once they reach this limit. The limit is based off 2003 exchange server limitations and we would rather be able to increase and and roll it back if performance is effected instead of not being able to have the option to change it at all.

  10. O365 Nav Bar is always filled with black if you are an External User

    Imagine you have an external user access to a SharePoint Online site, where the Office 365 Nav Bar is filled with wine-red. However, every time you visit to the site as an external user, you may see the Nav Bar as black.

    This happens in all tenants w/o exception while accessing as an external user and there is no way to change the color. This is confusing and frustrating for some customers who are giving special meaning to each site collection's Nav Bar color.

    Please consider and discuss about design change on this.

  11. 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.

  12. Display name spoofing protection request

    I'd like to see a feature whereby we can flag/block incoming external email which has a display name that matches the display name of an internal user. This would help stop the many emails we get where fraudsters have obtained staff names from LinkedIn etc. and have then created a free webmail account using their name, and then emailed staff attempting to ask them to make a bank transfer or other payment.

  13. Bring the Outlook Details Template editor to Exchange Online

    We use the Outlook Details Template editor currently available in the Exchange Toolbox on-prem to do custom field mapping. We would like to see this feature available to continue to be able to easily map these fields.

  14. 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…

  15. Allow the online archive to auto map for shared mailbox

    Create a CmdLet to switch On or Off visibility of the Online Archive for Shared Mailboxes in the Outlook client, when Users are given access via Security Group.

    At the moment the only way Users will get an Online Archive for a Shared Mailbox is if they are explicitly added to the permissions of a mailbox. Or access the Shared mailbox via the Outlook Web App.

    If you are given Full Mailbox access to a Shared Mailbox by being a member of a Security Group, the Online Archive will not be displayed when the Shared mailbox is attached to the…

  16. Ability to Download Payment Receipts

    I should be able to download payment receipts. Any other product or service i purchase, I get a payment receipt. As a business owner, this is crucial for taxes. I can download invoices via the portal, but NOT receipts. Please add the ability to download payment receipts.

  17. By default, allow all Global Administrators to "Open another mailbox..."

    Occasionally, I (as a Global Administrator) will need to access a users mailbox. Currently, I have to add myself under their permissions to open their mailbox within OWA. I would like MS to turn this access on by default. If you're a Global Administrator, you should have access to everything by default, even users mailboxes and OneDrive.

  19. Provide an ability to disable refresh warning when opening a workbook using Excel Services in SharePoint online

    The warning message "Be careful. This workbook contains one or more queries that might be unsafe. Do you want to enable these queries?" show every time a user opens a workbook with external connection or opens a page with a web part showing that workbook. That is the case even if the external data used in the workbook is located in a list on the same SharePoint site as the workbook. The message is very annoying to users and we need to have an option to disable it. This option already exists for SharePoint Server.

  20. Allow Admins to Disable Clutter Notifications

    Many of our users receive automatic system notifications suggesting that they enable the new Clutter feature. While this feature is valuable, we need to control the flow of information regarding features and usage of Office 365. We make announcements for things like this in accordance with our own training schedules so that we can provide the right guidance for our users. Please allow us to prevent these automated notifications for Clutter and for any features that may use these types of notifications in the future. Thanks!
