        • Ability to merge two Office 365 groups

          We have found that when swtiching from Google's G-suite to Office 365, it was easier to make a new group and start fresh. However, it would be very convenient and far less time consuming if we could merge the old group from when we had G-suite to the new group - in particular contacts and calendar events.

            • cross tenant shared mailbox

              Given Company A and Company B each having a O365 tenant and they would like to work closed together on Mail. So please allow users from A to be added to B's shared mailboxes. This would allow multiple benefits - including more cross-company collaboration with the Business features, while maintaining security. In addition, company A & B could share a internet mail domain.

                • Help me get the right office. You uploaded on my lenovo in Nov and dont need business. You are now charging me for a yearly subscription.

                  Add the software I need for regular home use office which is what I've always used and never paid. A gesture like this would go a long way. You bait and switched soft ware. I am not a business and dont need all of it. Just home use

                    For good change management, when users are trying to create a new group, we want to let our users know what they need to do to create a new 365 group through office applications when the administrator blocks the native function. We are looking for the possibility of modifying the system warning message, generate an email to the user or capturing an event via a Graph API ...

                        • Searching for emails in the inbox or sentbox

                          My business does projects that generate many email chains. It's easier to search for them than to organize them into folders except for one flaw. When you organize the inbox by "from", or the sent box by "to" it separates the emails into groups depending on who was on the to list. Why couldn't everything sent to Joe show up in the Joe list even if there were other recipients. Please let me know if I am missing something that could be changed by a setting somewhere. Otherwise, I think changing the to and from parameters would be an improvement.

                            • Offer Microsoft Teams for free?

                              Once Microsoft has them in the ecosystem, Teams customers will stick, so give it to Office 365 users free for a period of time. I noticed Teams being used extensively at the Microsoft Store earlier today, and the personal trainer was raving about it. For perspective, I'm a small business owner, Office 365 user, Surface Pro owner, and even own a Windows Phone. And MSFT is by far my biggest shareholding.

                              • Get-UnifiedGroup WhenCreated field should reflect when the Unified Group was created and not changed when moved in backend.

                                Currently, Get-UnifiedGroup field WhenCreated is changed when the group is moved to a different back-end database by Microsoft. It should never change and should only show the date when the Unified Group was actually created.

                                • Teams Allow to take over mouse and keypoard of an external attendee like its possible in Skype

                                  If an external attendee shares his screen in a Teams session it should be possible, that the external attendee gives remote control to internal attendees on request. The external user just uses the Teams App without any Office 365 login. This functionality is available in Skype for Business and when Teams will replace Skype it should have the same functionality!

                                    • Group Calendars

                                      Group/Teams Calendar viewable through Outlook iOS & Android App. All users in the team should be able to view their group/team calendars through the app. Currently not available!?! only viewable on desktop. Which seems counterproductive.
