  2. Add the most recent from Teams Activity tab as a tile / row on Office.com

    I would love if Office.com could give me an overview of all relevant in Office 365. I am missing a link to Teams.

    Please add a row / tile with the recent Teams notification from the Teams Activity tab.

  3. 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,…

  4. 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.

  6. Remove the "Oh, hey" message.

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

  7. Uniformize links behaviour across Office 365

    It's really difficult to predict what is going to happen when you click on an Office 365 link ! : Is it going to open a new tab/window or display in the same tab ?

    Just as an example: clicking on "Outlook" in the page opens a new tab, clicking on Outlook in the Office launcher menu displays Outlook in the same menu !!!

    This remark is valid across all Office 365 tool. Are you sure you don't use a random function ? ;-) This is what it looks like.

    Please uniformize and/or publish clear rule in order for us…

  8. Add aggregated news view on Office.com, much like the Sharepoint-root web page

    I love the top/root web page for sharepoint, where i get an aggregated view of all my news.

    Add a row on office.com to show the most recent sharepoint news. (perhaps with the possibility to individually filter out sharepoint sites)

  9. Change the Office365.com home page from "otthoni verzió" to "üzleti verzió" for Hungerian Office 365 users

    When your O365 language settings are set to Hu-hu, the home page of Office365 shows "otthoni verzió" in the browser bar. It translates to "Home version". This is confusing for users that expect to be working on a business platform rather than on the consumer platform.
    It should be changed to "Microsoft Office kezdőlap" or another meaningfull name.

  10. Service request, option to add attachments and call

    I would like to be able to add attachments, while the case is working to send the necessary information from where I generate the request for service. Not at the first moment when the service request is generated.
    In the same way when requesting telephone assistance, the call button is not activated if the telephone number contains letters in the case of telephone extensions.

  12. 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.

  13. In Modern User Interface the display picture in a person type column does not display by default.

    To get this working in MUI, additional column formatting is required and field customizer needs to be implemented in case the person type column allows multiple values. For a small clean feature which was available in classic UI, getting the customization done may not make sense.
    Any idea, why this was taken away ?

  15. 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,…

  16. 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.

  17. Ability to configure will documents open by default in read mode or edit mode (office online)

    When opening documents from sp liba, you should be able to configure what is the default opening behaviour (read or edit). For example cover pages do not work when document is openened in edit mode.

  18. Let users control CONTRAST of themes

    The inability to change the CONTRAST of the screen makes this a very negative experience. I appreciate that the white space/gray space is meant to be "light" but some people with vision challenges need to be able to see darker shading - in mail, for instance, it's like looking at a blindingly white screen with light gray text. I would like the ability to select a theme that gives more contrast -- darker text, darker gray, but keep white, white. I can't just adjust the brightness of the screen because it doesn't change the CONTRAST of the screen elements. I'm…

  19. Let us label office keys under my account

    I have multiple office keys listed under my account. It is very difficult to figure out which key goes to which machine when I have to reinstall it for any reason. It would be nice if I had the option to label them such as kids pc, office desktop, dads laptop, etc.

  20. 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.
