        • O365 Group name policy - Not apply automatically to Display name property

          Currently Naming policies apply to ID, Alias, Idenity and Display name with no option to leave the display name property set with the value the user entered.

                  • Enable mobile app with Exchange Conditional Access in Intune

                    The Groups app does not work when Exchange conditional access is enabled in Intune. We require this be enabled to prevent the default mobile mail client from being used so we can require a PIN to access O365 email with the Outlook client. Please enable the app through Intune with Exchange Conditional access so we can actually use Groups.

                    • 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.

                        • Download Exchange EDB to PST Converter

                          You can convert EDB to PST without problems without any records loss or alternate within the listing shape of information with Inspire EDB to PST Converter.

                          • 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.
