    Thanks for your feedback! We’re reviewing your suggestion. Remember, the more votes a suggestion gets, the more likely it is that we’ll do it. You can see what’s happening with Office 365 on the Office 365 Roadmap.

    Is this still not fixed?
    That's crazy! So everyone who isn't in the US (so almost everyone) has to manually set it for every new site (including those created by Teams)

    It's vital that this is sorted out

    It's a key requirement that the top level Site Collection can act as a full Communications Site. It seems like this is the most obvious use of Comms sites.
    Failing that there needs to be a simple way to redirect the root directly to a chosen Home Page on a Comms site

    We were talking about exactly this today.
    Most organisations struggle with a Leavers process and it's not unusual to see Active Directory with accounts 2 or 3 times larger than the number of actual staff.
    It would help greatly if users could be treated somewhat like content, with a Review and Expiry date set, possibly based on a short list of roles (Contractor, Permanent staff member, Perpetual), with a default Expiry date for each (settable in the portal and can be overridden for each account).
    The O365 Portal should then show users due to expire and provide notifications to them and their manager (30 days?) prior, with a process for requesting that the Admin extends the Expiry date.
    or it could all be handled with flow and PowerShell, if the APIs are made available and the underlying entities exist.

    This is really important for user engagement and for clarifying use of lists and libraries to users.

    The description might be:
    - displayed beside the library title
    - at the top of the Details Pane (when opened without a document selected) and/or opened via a tool bar icon
    - as a mouseover tooltip when teh library name is hovered over

    We are actively advising all our clients to avoid upgrading to Office 2016 until this is resolved. Office 2016 is fine, but this absolutely ruins many of their business processes. The backstage view of properties is a complete mess, the web form is slow to open and it's impossible to see the information in the document in order to add the details to the metadata properties.

    It now takes many clicks to even see the properties, interacting with them is a horrible user experience.

    So that's about 250,000 users who are not able to upgrade to Office 2016, and that number is increasing. It is also stopping a large proportion of our clients from taking the Office 365 E3 or E5 licence. They are option for E1 or K1 instead and staying with their current version of Office (2013 or even 2010)

    This is important for us too - in fact the whole integration with enterprise technology such as SharePoint etc. so sharing allowing Boards to be a Column in SharePoint, and integrating metadata between applications.

    This is really important to us.
    Many of our clients are not yet ready to allow users to roam free amongst the wider office 365 applications. They want their SharePoint intranet to be the centre of activity rather than the currently fragmented office O365 components, so embedding Delve within their intranet rather than external to the intranet is really important and they're confused why they can't do that already

    Absolutely need this, otherwise discoverability of boards is poor.
    Allow a view of all boards, perhaps as a tag cloud as you say, by clicking the Boards heading.
