  1. Groups shouldn't allow SMTP/UPN addresses as display names

    We recently had an issue where a user accidentally created a group by entering a user's full email address (UserA@ourcollege.edu) as the group's display name. Later, when a different user (User B) tried to email User A the message instead ended up in the group's inbox. On investigation, the group's display name was the first thing auto-suggested/auto-completed by Outlook, and User B chose it instead of the real contact.

    This isn't just a bit awkward, and open to accidental disclosure of confidential information, but it could be exploited by a malicious actor inside the organization to lure unaware…

  3. Know when the last email was sent to a distribution list.

    Know when the last email was sent to a distribution list.

    good morning

    We would need to know when the last email has been sent to a distribution list so that these lists can be used.

    The only solution that Microsoft has given us is to see in the mail flow if an email has been sent in the last 90 days.

    thank you

  4. Bug: Quick edit in Sharepoint library failed to go to page 2 of the quick edit list.

    In O365 embedded Sharepoint Quick Edit option, if the list of records flow into page 2 of the list, for example, page 1 covers items 1-30, page 2 covers items 31-60 etc, if you click on the next page option, it will bring you back to the browse default page of the library instead of going to page 2.

    Have walk through with the Microsoft helpdesk and confirm that its a bug.

    The classic sharepoint view will work fine.

  5. Allow add/update membership of Office 365 connected Yammer group by the group owner and / or members

    So this would make Office 365 connected Yammer groups in keeping with Office 365 connected Outlook groups - in Office 365 connected Outlook groups owners can add/update group membership.

    Forcing the management of Office 365 connected Yammer groups onto Office 365 admins is out of keeping with the pattern of collaboration established by the Office 365 connected Outlook groups.

  6. Allow images to be imported to Outlook web - Out of office

    It would be really useful to allow images to be imported / pasted in Out of Office section of Outlook Web mail. As currently can't add any branding etc like you can in the signature section.

  9. Email conversation view should open on 1 click to see all emails

    Email Conversational setup changed recently so now you have to click multiple times to open up the conversation to see each individual email underneath. First click does nothing. Second click sometimes opens the conversation. Sometimes it takes 3 clicks before it opens to show all emails in the conversation. Can change back to 1 click to open all emails in the conversation?

  12. Ability to add a O365 Group to a DL

    Currently if you add a O365 Group to a DL, the mail will not appear in the Group mailbox. It will only appear in the users inbox if the user is subscribed. Since it will be a slow process to convert all our DL's and we do have some nesting DL's this is would be very helpful.

  13. office-theme is not permanent

    I think there is a bug in the Office 365 options. Namely if the office- theme is set to dark gray. Sometimes that choice disappears back to colorful without cause. I have been in contact with the community and they suggested to report to you.

  14. Unable to Create a Rule to Move Synced Text Messages to a Folder

    I recently turned on the syncing of text messages on my phone, which syncs all my text messages to my Inbox. This is a good feature as now I can see and preserve my text messages without needed to look at my phone.

    The problem is, there are so many text messages it is causing me to miss important emails.

    I tried to create a rule on the web client to move the texts to a folder. It will not create the rule because the text messages don't follow the same convention for emails (does not contain @domain.com). I then…

    the navigation panel in outlook displays groups . when you click on one of these groups nothing to display here message appears. If you want to see the files you have to goto the files tab. The message should direct users there or just open the files as it used to?

  20. all a user to enter all details to a Task before adding to To Do

    When you are Adding a new Task you should be allowed to enter all details before submitting / adding. It is illogical in that it forces you to send to an assigned individual twice
