  1. Hi, is there a way to test (trial mode) Microsoft Connections before deciding to upgrade to Office365 Business Pro from the standard suite?

    At the moment our organization has the Office365 Business plan, from the Business Pro plan we're interested to test Microsoft Connections as a solution for sending out newsletters. Is there a way to test Connections before upgrading the plan? Many thanks!

          • Do not retire Connection from business 365

            We are a small company that started using windows for business 365 and love it. We used the connections portion of it and was an amazing hit wit the clients now it is being retired. What is this going to mean for us. The best thing about 365 is that everything you need is there in one spot.
            We need the connection/ campaign APP
            Please do something

              • Easier de-duping

                I had a failed attempt at importing my data into Connections, so I deleted all the contacts and started again. I now have a (more or less) clean list assigned to various mailing lists but this has brought about its own issues.

                My suggestions are:

                1) I have a complete set of duplicates (and more - 832 people in Contacts but 1,705 people on the 'Everyone' list) with no reassurance that, if I use this list, it won't send each mail twice!
                2) Provide an easier way of searching for duplicates in the contacts list. At present all you seem…

                  • Customise the welcome email

                    When someone signs up and confirms to join the mailing list, it would be nice to customise the email that is sent to them when they confirm their subscription to the mailing list.

                      • CONTACTOS EN BANDEJA ENTRADA Y NOMBRE REMITENTE COGER EL DE AGENDA

                        Hello everyone,
                        my suggestion is:

                        In the inbox, the sender name that you see should be able to be changed by the name you have recorded in the contacts or calendar.
                        All other email management programs do it and on cell phones as well.
                        More than anything that many times you have to decipher email that we know where it comes from and if it is a contact that you already have established.

                        Waiting for you to implement it.

                        Thank you very much

                          It would be useful to be able to resend a campaign to only those people who haven't yet opened the email.

                            • delete expired campaigns

                              There should be a way to delete campaigns to manage storage. I have generated a number of campaigns simply in testing. I would like to delete them and, once I use Connections in production, be able to delete old campaigns so that I don't need to scroll through hundreds of ages to find one I want to replicate.

                                  Within contacts you can filter in various manners but cannot filter those that are not on a mailing list so that you can allocate accordingly, or mailing list specific. Those not on a mailing list may have signed up via the 'sign up page' in Connections but you will have no idea who has signed up. So suggested filter options in Contacts:

                                      • Office 365 Graph Content Pack in Power BI and Data Connector in Flow/Power Apps

                                        Office Graph Data is extremely valuable. Being able to access it in Power BI, Flow and Power Apps is hugely valuable. It's possible with custom connectors/home brew now. It needs to be available to power users without code.

                                        • Download results

                                          You can upload data from a csv but no way to download. would be good if could download all data, contacts with campaign results, i.e. success, failed delivery, unsubscribe etc. so we could then bulk edit and re upload changes. i need to be able to download so can update our crm system. don't like the idea of copy and pasting for the next few hours
