    • Tasks management for Groups mailbox

      For your personal mailbox there are a lot of tools available to help you manage your emails as tasks. For example iPlannerPro, Tasks in a Box,... However these tools/add-ins don't work for the Group mailboxes!!! You can't drag and drop an email to save it as a task, you can't mark is as a task, Outlook tasks doesn't work... It would be great to have some integration between your Outlook Groups inbox and Planner, so you can simply mark emails as a task in Planner, assign it to someone else, right from within Outlook.

          • There seems to be an issue where by a global admin cannot create user groups and assign them rights to recieve mail from external sources

            A global admin should be able to administer the 365 tenancy without need for a license, it seems crazy that I need to have a license to administer the other accounts only and it is less secure assigning global rights to a mailbox user. Better security practice is to have the admin account WITHOUT a mailbox please consider fixing this issue

                  • Add members to Teams in bulk by CSV flat file - Agregar miembros a Teams de forma masiva por archivo plano CSV

                    Good Morning

                    It would be a great help that when adding members to a team, they could be raised in several at the same time from a flat file or a CSV.

                    In my university, teachers create teams according to the subjects assigned to their professorship; The drawback is that a teacher can have up to 10 groups of 45 student participants.

                    It becomes very complicated to upload one by one those 450 students.

                    I hope you work on this suggestion, it would substantially improve the application.

                    Regards;

                    • 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.

                                    • 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
