  1. Import Outlook data from OST file into Gmail

    To export your Outlook emails, contacts & other data to Gmail there are two methods you can use. One is long can complicated manual method and other is an easy and fast method using third-party software.

    In the manual method first, you need to export your Outlook mailboxes and folders to a PST file using Import/Export option in MS Outlook application and then use a tool called GSSMO from Google to import data from PST file in your Gmail Account.

    In the second method, you can use vMail OST File Converter Tool to directly export your Outlook data from OST…

  3. 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.

  4. Remove the ability for users to unsubscribe from a group

    https://office365.uservoice.com/forums/286611-office-365-groups/suggestions/15906502-remove-the-ability-for-users-to-unsubscribe-from-a
    we need this - the workaround suggested by Microsoft in that thread is unacceptable and I have no idea if any thought is being put into that

  5. 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.

  8. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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

  12. 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

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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;

  19. admin center groups

    in the =365 Admin center =>From the Home Active userssection. there are only 3 lookups filtering the database of users, "Display Name - UserName - Status" there is no way from the "Add Custom View" to add more lookups to this screen to better organised and manage users. I need to add Groups to this screen, so that when i put users into O365 Groups, i can quickly select only those users in a specific group and then be able to modify certain data.such as bulk editing passwords, location data, departments etc. currently and for the last few years this…

  20. O365 Group Expiration - Recovery Duration

    We have a policy that deletes our O365 connected groups and yammer… working pretty good. But owners only have 30 days to restore the group after expiration…. HOWEVER the resulting SharePoint site is still available for apprx 90 days… We can restore the SPO site but not the group (the membership, etc) after 30 days. This seems to be an inconsistent process where SPO has two recycle bins but the O365 connected resources are only saved for 30 days. Would love for it to be consistent with SPO as 30 days is not enough at times.
