  1. Ability to perform eDiscovery collections for specific Outlook Folders

    I have a requirement from a large customer (85K users) that needs to be able to perform eDiscovery collections for specific Outlook folders. We can do date range and Full Mbx collections, but not specific folders. This was possible on-premises, but not in Exchange Online ????

  2. Make secure score available to partners

    As a Partner I have access to the tenant of my clients. I'm not able to see the score of my clients tenant and check easily what changes need to be done and discuss this with my clients.
    I can only do this when I have an separate admin account of the clients tenant.
    Now with the integration of secure score into the compliance center shows a widget of the score but not the actions that needs to be taken. Please integrate the full secure score

  4. delete content from content search through gui not using New-ComplianceSearchAction

    Currently users with the ediscovery role can run search for content and download that content. Using the New-ComplianceSearchAction -purge -softdelete you can delete this content (which we use for deleting spam or malware emails out of mailboxes). We do not want our security operations team to use powershell to complete these deletes so we have to write a gui to provide this functionality. Please enable the ability to complete deletes within the SCC itself

  6. safelinks whitelist domain with wildcard

    Safelinks currently requires you enter each url you'd like to allow through. I'd like to have safelinks allow a wildcard domain. for instance we get many emails from our own systems pointing to internal urls. sometimes those emails get distorted because the url's are listed in plain text and replaced with the safelink.

    I'd like to allow wildcard https://*.mydomain.com/* to allow domains such as web.mydomain.com/page and test.mydomain.com/stuff to go through with by making one simple rule vs theoretically hundreds.

  7. Block Office Files with Macro's

    We are getting numerous malware attacks with zero hour Office files containing malicious Macro's, these are often blocked within 60-90 minutes but some are still being received by users. The signature is changing regularly so they aren't picked up by your scanners despite the original virus being around 12 months old.

    We do educate the users not to open them and Macro's are disabled, but blocking the content at the gateway would be better.

    Some of this functionality was available in Forefront for Exchange.

  8. OME v2 - Encrypt Only Template

    The new version of OME that is now more integrated into AIP, needs to have an encrypt only option such as you can configure using the message classification configuration.

    The DNF use case is too restrictive for our organisation.

    Thank you for consideration.

  9. Certificate of Destruction

    When applying the new unified retention policies across Office 365, and you have configured the policy to delete content after a specified period of time, is there any provisions for a review/approval process and/or a 'certificate of destruction' as an audit of what was deleted? This is a standard requirement for many Information Management teams as Courts of law look for prior review and approval for disposed content if called upon.

  10. To allow more than 30 messages per minute maybe up to 50?

    Currently office365 has a messaging limit of 30 per minute. It would be idial to have this increased to maybe at least 50 per minute.

  11. Allow for adjusting the link expiration time for an OME v2 encrypted message.

    Currently it appears set at 2 months. Would like to see ability to increase/decrease. Maybe max 1 year? Not sure the exact max needed, it would likely change by customer needs/retention policy.

  12. Advanced Threat Protection and Dynamic Delivery of emails

    With Dynamic Delivery, email is delivered with a provisional attachment that indicates that the original attachment is being scanned by ATP and will be delivered soon. If this email if forwarded before the original attachment is released by ATP, the recipient of the forwarded email will receive the provisional attachment and never see the original attachment once released to the first recipient.
    This is a problem for business where many executives on the move use mobile phones to routinely forward emails to team members for follow-up. We also have users who setup Outlook rule that forward emails to other users. …

  13. Alert Policy for Inbox Rule Creation/Deletion/Modification

    Currently O365 has an alert for forwarding/redirect rule within Security and Compliance Center. Considering that most phishing campaigns are crafted with someone setting up Inbox rules to move messages to another folder which are monitored, creating a man-in-the-middle attack. It would benefit tremendously to be alerted whenever a user creates/deletes/modify an inbox rule to prevent attacks before they happen.

  14. Office 365 needs a suite-wide URL web link shortener

    I could increase the adoption of various features / apps in Office 365 if I had a URL web link shortener in my tenant.

    For example, we recently had some groups working on shared Word documents via OneDrive. In order to help them get up-to-speed, I created a bit.ly link so that they could get directly to the OneDrive where we were all working together.

    I am also trying to get people to send links to documents that they maintain versus copies. I have a mnemonic "send a link, helps me think, send a copy, make inbox sloppy."

  15. Advanced Threat Protection - SafeLinks - Create Submission Mechanism for False Positive Malicious Domains

    Advanced Threat Protection - SafeLinks - Create Submission Mechanism for False Positive Malicious Domains

    This idea would create a feedback / reporting mechanism for domains incorrectly tagged as malicious by the SafeLinks feature. We had an example of a partner domain that was tagged as malicious, had zero malware / good reputation / etc. (confirmed by Microsoft Support), and had no way to feed that information back into Microsoft for a review of the malicious domain list so it could be removed. Similar feedback mechanisms exist for false positive Spam and virus detections - URLs deserve the same treatment.

  16. Use Outlook junk mail actions to train hosted spam filters

    Junkmail filtering has been a constant pain point for me with O365 business and Outlook. The spam filters have an awfully high number of false positives, and only rarely capture real spam (I don't get much on these accounts). Most of the mail that gets filtered is from the same set of senders even though I constantly tell Outlook that these messages are not Junk. O365 needs to leverage this data to improve filtering reliability.

    The Junk Email Reporting Add-in is our current solution for Outlook users. You can get the download for it, and learn more here:
    https://technet.microsoft.com/library/jj723127(v=exchg.150).aspx
    We do absolutely triage these submissions and use them to improve EOP.

    If you aren’t using Outlook, simply create a new mail to junk [AT] office365.microsoft.com and attach the entire message, including headers (see https://technet.microsoft.com/library/jj723151(v=exchg.150).aspx). We are looking at better reporting options for Mac and mobile users. What might be helpful here is commenting with which applications you use most.

    Administrators can also now go to http://aka.ms/FixSpam and troubleshoot their users’ most persistent spam issues.

    If you continue having difficulties, we recommend a support ticket to investigate current samples. It is frequently the case that a simple configuration issue is to blame — and support can help you figure this out.

  17. Allow us to create alerts for sign in Failures and Successes based off of IP Geo Location. Alerts if log in success outside of country.

    I would like to Create and alert if there are failed login attempts or successful login attempts from IP addresses originating outside of my City/State/Country.

    Allow us to either white list IP addresses and alert for any not on the white list. Blacklist IP addresses and alert based off of just black list. Select Country regions and alert if selected countries IP addresses are the originating IP. Allow us to alert for only failures, only successes, or both.

  18. Provide watermark capability for sharepoint online libraries

    SharePoint online and One drive for business is positioned to be used for collaboration with 3rd parties . Features like RMS provide the security for collaboration. In addition, I would like to see if Microsoft can provide the ability to watermark documents ( word, ppt, exchange attachments, excel etc) to maintain the integrity of documents that are shared outside the organization. In particular, if a library or folder is slated for sharing , I would like to have the option to enforce preselected watermarks ( for example :user id, corporate, brand or some id) across all pages of the document…

  19. Policy tips don't work in Outlook for some types of policy

    The documentation on policy tips states that the following tips are not currently supported in Outlook 2013 and beyond:

    We're currently working on support for showing policy tips for additional conditions. These include:

    Any email attachment's content could not be scanned
    Any email attachment's content didn't complete scanning
    Attachment file extension is
    Attachment is password protected
    Document property is
    Recipient domain is
    Sender IP address is

    Support for these tips needs to be added, as this makes the policy much less useful (for example, you can't set an "advisory" policy that attachments shouldn't be sent outside the domain as there…
