  1. Sync 100% of OneDrive for Business files to the local drive

    Please, need to be able to sync 100% of OneDrive for Business files to the local drive. Then I can give up my network drives. Many times, I need to work offline.

  2. Single sign-on for Office and LinkedIn. Would be great for LinkedIn to be in the "waffle", more useful than the email marketing feature!

    At the moment I have to log into LinkedIn separately from my Office 365 applications. It would simplify the desktop if it was an icon in the Office 365 waffle in the Office home page.

  3. Cannot send to a group of 501 Recipeints with tracking, and send an update to them.

    If you send to groups totaling more than 500 receipients and have tracking turned on, you cannot update the text, links, or anything in the message, as it errors out with too many recipients.

    Furthermore, if you remove groups from the message, it starts sending out cancellation notices to everyone. We had an executive sending out a big announcement company wide to 6 Distribution Groups, and the tracking expanded the message to over 500 recipients thereby making changes impossible. It had an an incorrect link, and updating the message was disallowed.

    Plus the recreating the meeting during the same time,…

  4. Outlook Search for Folders, not just messages.

    Search for FOLDERS not just messages, in Outlook 365/2016

    When I have items in a particular subject, I create a Folder and drag everything into it. However, Finding the items again is a needle in a huge haystack !

    Currently Outlook only searches for messages, in the; Current folder, Subfolder, Current Mailbox, All mailboxes, or All Outlook Items. We need to be able to search for a FOLDER, and have the hierarchy-tree scroll up to that folder, without changing view (like as if you click on it).

    Then items in the view pane can be dragged to that folder, or,…

  5. PowerPoint Total Slide Count for Page Numbering

    We are required to show the total slide count in our business presentations but PowerPoint does not have the ability to show the total slide count so we have to manually enter it into the slide template and remember to update it after we edit the slide deck. Please add the ability to show Slide # of Total as a feature in Slide Numbering.

  6. Make the version of OneDrive desktop app on the Software page the latest

    If I try to install the OneDrive desktop app from the Software page at: https://portal.office.com/OLS/MySoftware.aspx

    it gives me the 2013 version, which no longer works well. Make it download the latest version instead.

  7. stop the "Try Edge" nagging on *.microsoft.com

    Microsoft products like Office 365 and then it is hard to avoid visiting microsoft.com websites. Every time we do, we get a "Try Microsoft Edge" pop-up.

    You can click "No thanks" 11837 times, but it keeps coming back. The irritation this causes started to negatively affect our appreciation of Microsoft products in general.

    When we switched to Windows 10, my company thoroughly evaluated the Edge browser and concluded that it does not meet our needs. With every Windows 10 feature update we do a quick check if it did improve, but until now we decided to stay with Firefox which…

  8. Tell customers to go to office.com\setup when they buy a new product.

    Office Home & Student Instructions on the card purchased at a retail store says to go to office.com/myaccount. Nowhere does it explain how to change the past version of Office Home & Student displayed. There was no why I could load the new office 2016 version just purchased. It only listed Office Home & Student 2013, my previous purchased software.

    Also, I did not want Office 365 because I travel to remote Alaska where there is no internet connectivity. I did not buy Office 365 I bought what I think is Office Home & Student FULL version. I hope that's…

  9. Give up.

    You clearly don't know how to build websites so can you just give up and hire somebody that does to do it for you?

    Your office 365 admin portal is the worst thing anybody has ever made, it's just shockingly bad.

    What on earth is the new "Sign in experience" about? It's ruined everything. I need to log out and log in as numerous different administrator accounts, because the admin partner portal is beyond a joke, but to change the sign in name takes about 5,000,000 clicks.

    The odl sign in experience was abd - this is terrible.. It's not…

  10. App Launcher and default O365 start page

    In both the App Launcher and the default 0365 start page:
    1- allow the user to pin or unpin ANY of the applications, whether they are an O365 apps like Word, Excel, Delve...or an internal business applications that a Tile has been made for
    2- allow the user to re-arrange the apps in whatever order they wish
    3- do no automatically add apps by default based on users usage to either the App Launcher or start page
    4- Allow Admin to preset the available apps that show for a user so that Admin can dictate what the start page and/or…

  11. Improve student signup for free software

    I went through the process of signing up my son Adrian for free Microsoft Office 365 on one of these sites:
    https://www.microsoft.com/de-de/education/students/default.aspx
    or
    https://products.office.com/de-de/student/office-in-education
    (sorry, don't remember which one)

    I entered his birthday: June 17th, 2003. He is over 14 years old.

    I received the code from his school
    theodor-fliedner-schule@wiesbaden.de

    Finally, a message showed up that he does not have the legally required age to sign up for an online service. That is age 13 in Germany.

    Why did this happen?

  12. Add documents opened online to recent online documents

    When I open a document online via the Web Apps, these documents do not appear in the recent online documents list (at least in Office365 Germany). They only appear when I open them via Office Apps / Programs on my PC.

    They should also appear in the recent online documents when I open them online.

  13. App Launcher functionality

    I logged into my O365 instance this morning to see that my App Launcher had changed. It was odd because the O365 main page had been updated to have the Gallery look, however, the App Launcher still had the classic white on gray tiled look. I didn't realize that at some point the App Launcher would get the Gallery look too. Now, all of the icons we did for our tiles for our apps which were white (light gray) to match that classic style...are basically invisible. Okay, fine, we can live with recreating icons to use with the new look...however,…

  14. Office 365 entry point

    I find it confusing to find the correct login page for Office 365. Im often at a new computer and just want to type "office.com" or serarch for office and the login page should be the first hit.

    I also often hit the private outlook login page that look identical to 365 and can't login! Also, the login url is over 500 characters long...

    Please give us a simpler way to login.

  15. OneNote Button Default Open to List of All Notebooks

    Please make the OneNote button on the office.com home page default to open a list of all notebooks available in Office 365, instead of opening one notebook. I sometimes want to find a notebook for a group, and it would be easier to click the OneNote button than going to the group and then to its notebook. Thanks.

  16. Fire all your web developers

    Start from the bottom and build a web portal that actually works properly. Fire your current developers and poach some from a decent company like Apple or Google. That way your website will work and your customers won't kill themselves - meaning you'll sell more subscriptions.

    The new sign in "experience" is horrific, it has not fixed the problem just made the login more frustrating. Why not show the username and password field at the same time?

    MS is supposed to be a legitimate organisation, please sort this out. Everybody I've ever spoken to that has to use the admin…

  17. Terrible Customer Support and Stop Lying about Read-Only Sharing Ability

    I have yet to receive any real assistance in resolving my concerns, despite hours and hours of effort.

    1.  My scheduled call for 11am is now more than 1.25 hours late.  This is not acceptable, especially after having to wait 3 hours to receive a call the previous day after being told it would be only a 10 minute wait time.

    2.  Also received a completely useless email from another engineer, Lars Peterson, pointing me to the following thread that provides nothing but a list of complaints similar to mine, but no solution for Read-Only sharing, as quoted below.

    "Also, currently…

  19. Make it possible/easier to sign in with multiple accounts.

    Yes, this is technically possible. If I sign out of every single account I have. But it has taken me 30 minutes to not add a new account.

  20. Ability to remove or hide "Discover"

    The landing page automatically displays "Discover". There should be an option to hide these from being displayed permanently or temporarily.
