  1. Group setting for all member to be able to 'send as' automatically

    Either we need to be able to setup a group where all members can send as (like a shared mailbox) or the Group Owner should be able to designate this. Where we have teams of people supporting a customer, the customers like to get all of their email from one primary address. Having an IT admin do this on a case by case basis for each member of each group isn't ideal.

    • [Multi-language] Usage of special characters

      When we create a Group with the name Fejlesztés it becomes Fejleszts and this should be Fejlesztes.

      In WordPress there is a function that replaces (not trims) the accented characters

                  • Restore the functionality for mailmerge to work properly with a text datasource when run from a macro

                    Previous to Office 365 version 1803 mailmerge executed from from a macro (using a text data source) worked properly. Now, data field delimiters from the text datasource get pulled in as part of the merged data. This seems to be related to a zoom setting, because changing the zoom setting will intermittently fix the issue. Microsoft support recommended I create this post here as the next step in getting this resolved. Reference Office 365 support ticket #12843700 for details.

                    • Guest account lifecycle management

                      Over time the number of guest accounts will grow enormous, often with Temporary accounts. Under GDPR compliance, but also for housekeeping one would want to cleanup from time to time. So a affirmation of the account continuation is required. Something similar is already in place for Access review, but this is your goup / team participation not for the account

                      • Allow for the Domain Management to be active as soon as a name has been purchased

                        I purchased a domain on 7th Jan 2019 and am unable to manage that domain i.e. change the DNS direction to the platform on which the Web Site is being devloped for 60 days. There is nothing on the site where I purchased the name about this other than one cannot transfer the domain to another site. It has caused me to set back the date of the comapny launch and a loss of potential earnigns as a result

                              "Members" are not showing in SharePoint when there's only one owner. Then you can't add members without going into admin center.

                              Create a new Office 365 group and add a member. Then navigate to the sharepoint site. How can you add new members from that page?

                              • Allow enforcing O365 identity in external Yammer networks

                                Now that Office 365 connected groups can be enabled for Yammer networks, this feature should be extended to external networks. I understand that the first step here would be having an option to enforce O365 identity in external networks, as currently you can only enforce O365 identity in the home Yammer network.

                                Without this feature, using Yammer in hierarchal organizations is significantly less effective. For example, a global company with offices around the world might want to set up external networks but still have access to corporate OneDrive or SharePoint libraries to share content and collaborate across the company. Without…
