    • Allow Administrator to Remove Enrolled Device

      I see a user device in the Intune Mobile Device Management for Office 365. It is not a company owned device and the user does not recognize it as personal device. We would like to remove it as a trusted/enrolled device.

        • Retention policies (with records marker) should be manageable by admins

          I understand the purpose of records markers in retention policies is to protect official company records. There is, however, a sizeable gap in the functionality to be able to administer such labels even before they are published for use. i.e., even an unpublished (and therefore completely unused) retention label with a company record marker cannot be edited or deleted in any way. Guidance on https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/office365/securitycompliance/labels#using-retention-labels-for-records-management does NOT alert anyone to this fact as it notes "WHEN AN ITEM IS LABELLED AS A RECORD, four things happen: 1. The item can't be permanently deleted; 2. The item can't be edited; 3.…

          • Easy to access support

            Hi,

            Sounds silly, but after spending close to 2 hours navigating the MS support teams it makes sense to me. Either update the Office 365 "New support" area to allow support tickets for attack simulator, or have a link within the webapp to log bugs either into the support teams or via github.

            • More options with OTP

              As it is right now OTP is either enabled or disabled. There should be an option to use OTP only when an email is being sent outside of the organization otherwise it stays disabled. To have OTP enabled all the time doesn't make sense because if someone's mailbox is compromised the would be hacker could easily click the OTP link to gain access to the email. You could enforce the use of MFA to mitigate that issue but if you have a lot of users, especially ones who are not savvy with computers, that could be a real nightmare.

              • Imporve Mailbox usage Filter - to see usage of shared mailboxes - if need reach limits of 50GB it needs a Online plan 2

                When a shared mailbox reaches his limit of 50GB, it need a Online plan 2. We tried to achieve this by the portal.office.com but we cannot filter the csv usage list on user mailbox and shared mailbox.

                  • O365 tenant security recommendation and InfoSec processes for O365?

                    As so much work already done, we have recently deployed our tenant, can I have some template to address top key security challenges and also some process guidelines to make we sufficiently cater Corporate Security Team for any investigation?

                              • Create scheduler for Email Supervision report in Security and Compliance Portal

                                Access to the supervision report requires Compliance Admin or Org Admin - way more than needed to monitor supervision results. If we could schedule and send the report periodically, the access requirement would be mitigated. Please allow scheduling and emailing of the Supervision Report.

                                  • Policy to monitor User Login and actions

                                    We'd like to create "super admin" that does not have MFA. As a Global Admin, we would like to know when this account is logged into and what it is doing. This account would not be used unless required, but would be a more generic name so access could be assigned to more than one person. I can't see a way to be notified for login access with the policy options today.

                                        • Email Certificate of Destruction

                                          There is the capability to enable mailbox auditing, which also provides a audit log if a user, or an Exchange admin hard deletes a message. However, this audit log does not capture hard deletes when initiated from a retention policy. I would think this is a critical piece of information any compliance and regulatory department would need in the case of defensibility in a legal situation.
