      • 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 :-)

                • 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.

                      • Remove the "Oh, hey" message.

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

                        • OWA Language setting in One place

                          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.

                            • 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.

                                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.

                                      • Fix the "Go back to your last spot" in Word 2016.

                                        That awkward moment when Word 2013 is better able to find where you left off a One Drive document better than Word 2015.

                                        • Counldn't instal - Error code 30125-1011 (404)

                                          The link in this error message should link to directions for uninstalling previous versions of Microsoft Office. Currently it only links to information about firewall settings and such.
