      • 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…

        • 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?

            • 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.

                  The current webpart to insert a sharepoint list will only work for Custom Lists. But there are now so many different kinds of lists available under Insert App... they all need to be available to be inserted on pages using webparts.

                  • Correct APA Style formatting

                    Please enter the correct APA Style formatting tool in Word. My students use it, but I have to take points off their research papers because the citations and references are not formatted in APA.

                    • Make a viable offer for single households with a stationary Windows computer and a Windows Laptop!

                      I can not understand how Micosoft is thinking with it's offer for home and private. First some statistics:

                      "The proportion of one-person households increased by 10 percentage points between 1970 and 2012, from 17 percent to 27 percent."
                      "In 2014, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that 124.6 million Americans 16 years and older were single, or 50.2 percent of the population, compared with 37.4 percent of the population in 1976."

                      Microsoft has no viable offer for all those millions (US) or billions (WW) of single households! A very normal Windows user has BOTH a stationary Windows computer AND a…

                      • Bring back auto selection of items "Subject", "From", "Keyword" in Outlook search box

                        The current version of Outlook in Office 365 and 2016 has removed a very powerful function that was available in Office 2013 Outlook.

                        When you typed in the search box in Outlook, three options appeared that allowed you to select "Subject", "From", or "Keyword". When pressing the arrow down, the options appeared again in case you didn't chose them before. This made search very efficient.

                        The latest version of Outlook in Office 365 removed this feature. Now, every time you want to search on a subject, you need to write: Subject:(xxxx).

                        Please bring back the feature.

                        • Option to Note what machine Office is installed on

                          Instead of just a cryptic list of office 2016 licenses, or whatever version, There should be an option to Create a Note, or select a Dropdown that notes what machine it is installed on.

                          This way you aren't trying to remember when you purchased office and what machine it was for, Instead you put "Stacy Laptop" or something in the notes, this way unintentionally installing the same office copy on 2 pcs can be easily avoided, vs right now I try to remember if I was down to the third or fourth install on the list. Months later there is…

                            • Possibly Inaccuracy in Office 365 Business Pricing Page

                              One of the bullet points described here: https://products.office.com/en-us/compare-all-microsoft-office-products?tab=2 states that "web versions of Outlook" are included in Office 365 Business. Unfortunately, upon purchasing, there does not appear to be a web version of Outlook included. A call to support confirms that, contrary to the Microsoft Outlook pricing website, there is no web version of Outlook included in Office 365 Business. Recommendation: revise the 365 Business Pricing Page to reflect that the web version of Outlook is not included. Thank you.

                                  After I created column by “Calculated” in the List on classic experience, the item cannot be displayed totally by filtering. Even it can be all displayed on new experience, It would be really helpful if the item can be displayed extended on classic experience.

                                  • Metadata Navigation

                                    Currently the new document library experience does not support Managed Navigation, so I have been using Managed Navigation on classic document library.
                                    When I set the Group By setting as follows, some items were expanded.
                                    - First group by the column: managed metadata column
                                    - By default, show groupings: ‘Collapsed’
                                    We love the new experience however we need to get navigation right before we can do this.

                                      • Notification bubble on tiles

                                        Portal.office.com can be a great start page, a hub where you can overview all your office apps.
                                        But to make it useful, we need to see notifications on each tile/app, like it would display on an iPhone for instance.
                                        Outlook showing the nb of unread emails, yammer notifications, etc

                                        • Ability to have 2 different site collection URLs

                                          Similar to on-premise where you can extend the site collection to create another site collection with a different URL within the same SharePoint Environment. We were wanting to be able to have two site collections with different URL that use the same AD.
