  1. 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.

    • 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.

      • Date format should be localised based

        Date format should be localised. Especially for subscription expiration information.

        • 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.

          • 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,…

            • 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.

              • 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…

                • 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.

                  • 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.

                      • Office keeps losing file associations with it's own file types and the only way to fix it that works is to reinstall it. Fix this problem!

                        Make it so office doesn't arbitrarily lose file association. Trying to ressociate them doesn't work and you have to reinstall the entire office suite. This should not happen. Please fix this issue.

                          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,…

                              • A notification of spec change should be made

                                Before the file with over 14 full-width characters downloaded from SharePoint would miss parts of the name from the 14th character
                                But the issue seems resolved now, cause the full name can be displayed even the file’s name is over 14 characters
                                If the spec really change, please give a notification to the users.

                                  • Skype Web Client on all Office 365 pages.

                                    Currently if you are in the Outlook.com (Mail, people or Calendar) section of Office 365 you get a Skype Client option on the top navigation bar next to alerts.

                                    This would be tremendously useful if it was an option no matter where you were navigating within Office 365 and especially in SharePoint.
