  1. Remove the Asterisk on the new eDiscovery Content Search page for Keyword Parameter

    The new eDiscovery Content Search page on Security & Compliance center includes an asterisk next to "Keywords" saying it's a required field. It is NOT a required field and is confusing. Also - the SAVE button on the accounts page is below the bottom of the page, you should move it to next to the X at the top. I can't tell you how many times I've accidentally closed it when I meant to save it.

  2. When I detect ATP, I want to be able to set spam [add text to the head of the subject line as well as filter] setting

    I want to make it possible to add [text to the beginning of the subject line] in addition to [Monitor] etc. when the ATP is detected
    In a transport rule, there is a method of bypassing a file with a specific extension detected by ATP
    However, if you want to set [add text to the beginning of the subject line] for all detected ATPs

  3. Allow admins to export the findings from all O365 Security Centre Dashboard Reports (including associated user names) so they can be tracked

    Currently, there is no ability to export the associated user names from ANY of the security dashboards on O365 Security Center.

    If your development team can take this feedback and add that feature, that will be very helpful.

    The reason is that unless I am able to export the names of users involved in any potential security finding (such as users having SMPT auth, users with malware detected, users targeted with fishing attacks etc.), it is difficult to track the remediation, follow up conversation etc. for those cases.

    Hence I request – ALL the dashboards on O365 should have the…

  5. Ability to easily delete a phishing email from all mailboxes

  6. unusual external file activity

    Add the ability to whitelist certain SharePoint sites from the unusual external file activity alert. We have several sites that are designed to be shared externally, have no sensitive data, and that we do not need to be alerted about. We don't have any way of filtering those out of the alerts though, so we are regularly getting useless notifications and have a hard time filtering through to find the ones we actually do care about.

  8. O365 Management API ability to subscribe to activities for a mailbox/activity type

    We have to subscribe for whole Exchange activities and filter out data after reading the activity. It will be really nice to have the option to subscribe to activities for only the mailbox and/or /activity type we are interested in.

  10. Add More MS Products to the Compliance Manager

    Hello,

    I can see that it took a lto of work, but if you could assign even one person for all major MS product lines to address adding these products to the Compliance Manager, like you have for Office 365, in particular VTST and TFS, that would be great. I know that these products aren't necessarily associated with personal data; however depending on what you're developing and also in thinking a privacy by design, this is where it happens in the MS world. Maybe SSMS too.

  11. Don't show senders of received emails from receiver found by search in "Works with" area (-> NSA style)

    Currently you disclose the senders of emails an Office 365 user A has received when another user B searches the user and selects it.
    The user B sees any email sender user A has received an email from.
    That way the user easily can derive the communication relationships of other users, what may be with intent, but is highly unwanted in our area (Germany), who is not so fond with NSA's style of data security.
    Please make this feature detachable. ("Works with" is named "Arbeitet mit" at me, hope it spells "Work with" at you).

  12. Your 'block' list for domains is relying on ANCIENT data. How do I get my site removed from your erroneous block list?

    Your 'block' list for domains appears to be relying on ANCIENT data. Where are the instructions for reporting errors in your list? How do I get my site removed from your erroneous (irresponsible even?) block list? [Or how do I find out WHY you are blocking me?]

  15. Allow Alerts Policy to target Distribution Lists or Security Groups

    When creating a new alert policy it's only possible to have the alert target a specific user rather than a class of users as defined by a distribution list or security group.

    As an educational institution we don't care if our students forward mail outside of the system but want to ensure that we are tracking new forwarding rules for all staff and faculty. This is currently not possible.

  16. Customer managed granularity for CSPs in compliance manager for Office 365

    Allow the ability to split the Customer field into CSP and Customer(s). Also associated permissions to see what you are assigned via groups. Shared responsibility is not always just two parties.

  17. Ease of use needs improvement

    Encrypting emails is easy. Recipients on the other hand have major problems. Most of our clients have moved away from 365 encryption because it is so confusing and difficult to read the emails. I suggest you guys streamline the process and simplify it for the recipients before everyone jumps ship for simpler solutions. You nailed the front end process but the recipients suffer badly and can never seem to figure out how to open messages.

  18. Have a built-in dashboard or report summary for business justifications and false positives that users write to override a policy tip.

    Have a built-in dashboard or report summary for business justifications and false positives that users write to override a policy tip. Otherwise there is very little proper management and consolidated of business justifications / false positives which is needed to properly access the effectiveness of the policy tip and the actual compliance of users. Also, enable sending of incident report to user's manager or compliance officer so that relevant flags are sent to the relevant people [Ticket #:14230735]

  19. email security

    I am informed by a support ambassador that the recent email my tenants are receiving allows a scrip[t to run that will extract the username and password from outlook giving the malicious sender access to that account if the user clicks on the link in the email.
    if this is true, then this is a serious security breach and needs to be patched immediately!!!! my tenants are being hacked justifiably at their own doing by not recognizing the potential hack, but this should not be possible. period!!

  20. Improve ICD-9/10 detection for DLP

    Currently ICD-10 detection will trigger if an email contains the single word "system", with 85% certainty. An exact code and description match will also trigger with 85% certainty.

    An MS support tech explained that ICD-9 and ICD-10 detection was based on a dictionary lookup that includes the codes AND the code descriptions.This makes this detection mostly unusable, as many common words are detected with no way to distinguish from exact code matches.

    An improved system would primarily use a keyword lookup that matches the CODES only, with additional % certainty for nearby words matching the code DESCRIPTIONs.

    Until some kind…
