  1. Customization of Office 365 Home page

    Have customization possibilities for customization of the Home page (portal.office.com/home);
    - Possibility to add mandatory tiles
    - Possibility to remove tiles for users
    - Add custom tiles (with a link)

    Like the App Launcher customization possibilities.

    • Ability to remove or hide "Your recent online documents"

      The landing page automatically displays "Your recent online documents". There should be an option to hide these from being displayed permanently or temporarily. I don't want other people seeing my business when I start Office 365 :-)

        Thanks for sharing your feedback about the recently used documents. We are working on making this feature better in our future releases.

      • Remove the "Make Bing your search engine" and "Make MSN your browser homepage" tickboxes.

        The default page requires two extra click to untick these options.

        • Password Reset Custom Page

          We have our Active Directory synced via DirSync to Office 365. The login page is customized via AzureAD settings. It would great if there was a way to either remove the "Can't Access Your Account" link or have the ability to customize the text on the passwordreset.microsoftonline.com page.

                    • Tile for O365 groups on startscreen and app launcher

                      We miss a tile for O365 groups on the home screen and app launcher. Users have no chance to go directly into a group, they must always first select an application and then go to the group view.

                            It's overly familiar and should at least be customizable.

                              We wanted to see OWA in French on an English OS, We had to change 3 different settings to get it to show French on all screens. Regional settings, Mailbox settings and IE settings. Make one setting in either IE or OWA that would work for all screens.

                                  • Personal Hub as Home Page

                                    We have been doing a lot of training on Planner and OneNote recently and had an idea born out of some user frustration. Currently, there are several places that you can create/track tasks and projects that you work on. Thinking along the GTD methodology, it would be great to have a personal HUB in Office 365 that presented you will all of the tasks created/assigned to you across the platform--Outlook, OneNote, Planner, SharePoint. It would be further fabulous if those tasks shared a similar tagging structure.

                                      • Show which product keys have been used

                                        On the "My Account" page there are a list of products registered to the account, with "Install" links, but no way to know which ones have already been used. Would be great if there was a way to flag which products have been installed (and on which machines).

                                        Since the only way to change an Office product key is to uninstall/reinstall, I've just had to uninstall/reinstall Office on 3 machines because our work account has a number of products and the users just selected the first key in the list when prompted at their first run.

                                        • The space bar needs to make a blank space after the cursor. Why doesn't it?

                                          I don't like that the cursor doesn't show a blank space between itself and the last word when you press the space bar. You can't tell if you pressed the space bar or not. It's very confusing.
