  2. Make a way to downgrade a "Group" to a DL.

    Example: If you create a Group and then decide it needs to just be a DL, you have to delete it and start over.

  3. Allow default SharePoint quota for Groups site collections to be changed

    Organizations should have the option to change the default quota on site collections created for Teams/Office 365 Groups to whatever they'd like. The out-of-box default quota should also probably be something much less than 1TB for Groups sites.

  6. improve communication to users when O365 Exchange is not working

    recently I have not been able to connect to O365 Exchange. Microsoft provides no communication to me. customer service states "we have the same problem." My most recent outage was 70 minutes. It would appear the O365 Exchange reliability is diminishing.

  7. @all should work for broadcasting an email message to all members in the group, even if the number of members in the groups exceed 10000.

    Dear Mr Shankar Raut,

    Respectfully submitted through Praful Kamble Sir, Office 365 Team.

    I quote you verbatim :

    “ Another issue was with sending emails to more than 10000 recipients in a day.

    As per the below mentioned article we can only send up to 10000 recipients a day and that is a limitation and its by design.

  9. Sync Office365 security groups to SharePoint groups

    Add a function to sync Office365 Security Groups to SharePoint groups. Currently, there is no way for third-party applications to query membership of an Office365 group in SharePoint. Syncing these groups would allow them to do so.

  12. 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

    Hello everyone,
    Greetings from a Berlin, Germany and have a nice day.
    I would like to make a suggestion concerning the dictation concept in Word.
    What if the machine could learn my kind of speaking and dictating not only online but also offline with certain things I have to read so that the Programm can learn my style of speaking and dictating and can improve in recognising & understanding my speech and voice and so on?

  18. Improve printing options for envelopes in Word documents

    Presently there is no option as to which printer one would like to print an envelope on. Many people load different size papers and envelopes into different printers. It should be up to the user to decide which one to use if they do not want to use the default printer.
