  1. Recipient Alert Notification when an attachment is blocked like .docm, .exe, .vbs etc. from Malware Filter

    It would be nice if Microsoft Office 365 can create a transport rule to perform the following tasks: (this task is possible on Edge Transport servers)

    This value removes the offending attachment from the email message and allows the message and other attachments that don't match an entry on the attachment filter list through. A notification that the attachment was removed is added to the email message.

        • I really need you to enable changing groups to DL. there are several limitations to groups that are not in DLs, like nesting.

          you "encouraged" us to "upgrade" to Groups, but it is the opposite, and we can not go back to DLs. I need to have a list that is all of one list plus three others. it will constantly get out of sync with groups, forgetting to add and subtract from both when things change.

              • Fix Planner assignment popup so it doesn't block the Add Task button

                Thanks for implementing multiple assignments!
                Unfortunately, now that the popup does not close after selecting an Assignee, it sometimes blocks the Add Task button, so there is no way to add the task! ESC does not work, clicking the name in the task does not work, and clicking blank space on the task discards it.

                  • Fix link in docs library

                    A link in the Docs library does not work on a mobile device. This is probably due to the extension .url. It would be nice for a link to be added.

                      • sort

                        Currently, the Groups discussion is sorted in ascending order (the original post --> older replies --> latest reply).
                        It will be super clear and easy to see discussions in descending order (the original post --> latest reply --> ...) which is same as SharePoint discussion.

                        • Avoid PST Corruption by Splitting Large PST File

                          Users get the error messages in Outlook due to corrupt PST file and the PST may get corrupt due to virus attack, configuration settings or large size. In most of the cases, it is found that large size of PST is the cause of corruption. To avoid PST corruption we can split the PST file and reduce the size.
                          Thus PST size can be reduced by following steps
                          First, create a new PST file in Outlook
                          Open Outlook, File, Account Settings and add new Profile
                          Create a new PST file and save it. Remember the Path of PST

                                  • Receive accept and declines from conference rooms when booked through O365 group calendar.

                                    We have a hybrid environment and we just ran into this issue. MS O365 support confirmed it with their non hybrid environment as well. When booking a conference room with O365 group calendar the decline or accept from the room goes straight to deleted items.

                                    Who looks in deleted items folder for accepts or declines from conference room? Its hard enough to get people to read the messages when it comes straight to their inbox. Please fix this issue.

                                      Add in some view settings to the Groups other than just Reading pane views. Make this fully customization like a "standard" inbox is. The ultimate goal would be for Groups to be able to have almost the same appearance as if it were a normal inbox.
