  1. 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

    • Get-mailbox, -identity be facultative

      get-mailbox -resultsize unlimited | select-object -expand emailaddresses should return all email addresses, because we need to do get-mailbox -IDENTITY * -resultsize unlimited | select-object -expand emailaddresses when identity is normally facultative and is used to select a specific mailbox

      • Improve/Fix Sharepoint Syncing via the Web browser

        Sharepoint will not sync multiple sub-folders via the web client. Though it works through the OneDrive sync client, Office365 is billed as a "web/cloud based" platform, and the functionality should work seamlessly through the web. It doesn't.
        Case number: 5839311

          • new look of O365 group

            The new UI.
            The home page O365 Group is not user-friendly or I can say disorganized, would like to get it reverted to the OLD.

            • 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.

              • View Settings

                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.

                • Add members to Teams in bulk by CSV flat file - Agregar miembros a Teams de forma masiva por archivo plano CSV

                  Good Morning

                  It would be a great help that when adding members to a team, they could be raised in several at the same time from a flat file or a CSV.

                  In my university, teachers create teams according to the subjects assigned to their professorship; The drawback is that a teacher can have up to 10 groups of 45 student participants.

                  It becomes very complicated to upload one by one those 450 students.

                  I hope you work on this suggestion, it would substantially improve the application.

                  Regards;

                      • Add conversation link automatically to the title of a file uploaded to group library

                        It is essential to be able to link the files downloaded on the group library (sharepoint or onedrive) with the conversation where this file was received because often we need to have the file AND the associated message in the conversation if not informations are lost or difficult to find later. I have a turn around right now by copying the conversation link in the title of the file but it would be great if that functionnality was automatic... What do you think about that?

                        • Docoment Type Icon Takes Doesn't Update

                          When you create a new folder and you drag a number of files to that folder in a group, the gear showing the progress of updating the document type icon (word, pdf, excel, etc) doesn't update upon completing the upload. For the user, it appears as if the files are still loading and yet that's not the case. This doesn't happen when using the classic view.

                          • In Team site document library, disable delete option for one member

                            We have Team Sites for our Office 365 Groups.

                            If this team site have the view only permission for members + visitors, and we give to a member the modification right on one directory in document library, he can add and modify content in the folder, he cannot rename this folder, but he can delete the folder.

                            Is possible to fix this ?

                                Per Microsoft support, the video view count takes over 24 hours to reflect accurately do to search crawling the data. I would propose this is enhanced to provide accurate data much quicker, at least in line with the statistics.

                                  after calling support and apply email address policy nothing changed and the support finally said the problem is with design ! this problem violate privacy between domains , and i suppose Microsoft to change this behavior ASAP .

                                  • Add the name of the group to the alert about group creation

                                    If you set an alert via the security centre to be alerted upon group creation a couple of things could be improved. Firstly the alert isn't immediate or even within an hour. It seems to be upwards of 2-3 hours before you are notified. Secondly, when the alert comes through it doesn't say that the name of the group is.

                                    We set an alert hoping to quickly intercept any inappropriate names. You can find the name if you view the audit logs to see if the creating user added any files.

                                    Thanks
