  1. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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).

  5. 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?]

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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]

  12. 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!!

  13. 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…

  14. Automatic deletion of shared document links for deleted documents

    Hello,

    If a user deletes a document, the link for other users doesn't disapear.
    Would it be possible to implement a batch that analyzes the deletion of documents and automatically impacts the shared information for other users of the organisation?

    I tried with various situation, placing the document in the two different bin and it is necessary to delete the share configuration before the document.
    It is very impacting, if you consider that most of user don't think about deleting the share option before deleting a document, and as soon as the document is no more accessible, you have a…

  15. Please make OMEv2 a proper superset of the "old" OME including server-side decryption rule

    Please make sure that all the current capabilities of the "old" OME are present also in OMEv2 before decomissioning the old version.

    We have a case where a third-party application sends and receives mail that may contain sensitive customer data.

    We can enforce TLS between the application and Office 365, but not between Office 365 and recipient. The application needs to be able to process replies, thus they need to be in the clear when arriving at the application input.

    This is possible in the old OME but not OMEv2. Thus, we cannot move to OMEv2.

  16. Need multiple options for screen sharing for Office 365 Support

    Office 365 Support Help staff currently use Logmein as a tool for screen sharing with customers and for tech support. Our company has locked that tool from being used for security reasons. Can Microsoft provide another option? We tried to use Skype for Business but Support won't pass out a email address - so we cannot schedule a call and use that tool. Need some other options.

  19. Figure out why users get a Security Warning that outlook.office365.com has a bad certificate (issued to dsldevice.domain_notset.invalid).

    It's all in the title. Your service should not be trying to use such a certificate. Maybe check to see if a server has been taken over.

    This seems to happen about once ever 3 weeks or so.

  20. Use an email phishing engine that takes into account American vernacular as well as spelling and grammar.

    Foreign phishers, of which most seem to be, cannot master the idiosyncrasies of American vernacular and they even struggle with basic grammar and spelling. Since they are usually posing as legitimate American companies or professional individuals, create a machine learning engine that understands American vernacular then sanity check emails for violations of the learned rules of the vernacular. Microsoft likely already has a usable machine learning capaability already (bot Tay for example). Time to stop playing with that technology and start using it!
