        • Ability for administrators to disable office online chat

          We have shared class notebooks setup enabling classes of 30+ students free range to chat to each other. As you can imagine teachers are finding this hard to manage, especially when they're off task inside of a program where work is also taking place; making it incredibly easy for the sneaky students to hide their off topic discussions!

          Furthermore the chat logs are not saved anywhere - this really does open up a host of child protection issues where cyber bullying could take place within the school without any logs of it ever happening.

          • Modern calendars

            Modern pages, lists and libraries look great and all fit together nicely.

            The other main thing we use here is the calendars which are still looking classic, which means inconsistencies in the quick links layout as well as other things which viewing a calendar.

            I can't find anything about when Calendars are going to be modernized.

            Hopefully soon!

            • Introduce markdown syntax for authoring content

              As a systems engineer/developer, I love the office 365/sharepoint platform. The one thing that's stops me from using it for everything is the lack of a productive way to generate content.

              Editing content in the UI is horrendously slow and painful, I just want to be able to author content quickly with markdown syntax, and publish my content/documentation quickly and easily.

              What's microsofts standpoint on this? Am i the first to request this? (i highly doubt i'm the only one who wants this...)

              Cheers,

              Morgan

              • Please provide option to customize email templates

                Please provide option to customize email templates used to send notifications out of SharePoint online like "Send by Email" feature on modern UI pages, sharing notifications to other users. Most organizations do not allow users to install mobile apps. Providing information that is not approved will confuse the users and require constant training.

                • Branding sharing email invitation

                  It would be great to do some branding on the sharing invitation e-mail message. For example replacing the Office 365 logo with your company logo and changing the color scheme.

                  • Improve the search behavior to display the user name containing the double-byte characters as input candidates.

                    ■Title(件名):ユーザー名の検索について

                    Improve the search behavior to display the user name containing the double-byte characters as input candidates.
                    -------
                    ■Description_JP (内容):[ユーザーまたはグループ] 列でユーザー名を入力した際に、漢字 2 文字を入力した段階で入力候補として表示されるようにしてほしい。

                    In case of making a search for user name with [User or Group] column, I hope the search behavior will be improved to display the name containing the two double-byte characters when entering them into its column as input candidates.

                    • Support inviting external users to multiple SharePoint security groups

                      It appears that when you add an external user to a site collection security group in SharePoint Online and then add them to another security group in the same site collection, if the user hasn't accepted the invite yet then they will only be granted permissions to the second security group.

                      For example, if I create a new site collection and I add an external user to the Visitors group then an invite email is sent to the user. If I then add that same user to a second security group and the user hasn't yet accepted my invite, then…

                      • SharePoint 2013 workflow email to distribution list

                        I found out after contacting Microsoft Support that you are not able to use the "Send Email" action in SharePoint 2013 Designer to send the email to a distribution list (group type of distribution or security). In order to send an email in a SharePoint workflow to a distribution list (allmanagers@company.com), you have to use a SharePoint 2010 workflow.

                        I was informed that SharePoint 2013 workflows can only send emails to organization users.

                        Please allow the ability to send to a distribution list within the GAL/org. This is a very common request so changes in recipients do not…

                        • Reliable presence information in SharePoint Online

                          Currently SharePoint Online getting presence information from local Skype for Business client. It would be great it actually talks to Lync Online at the background (similar to OWA) so that users can see presence information regardless of they are logged into Skype or not. Furthermore, presence information does not work on Chrome, due to the same reason, this gives an inconsistent experience across browsers and can benefit from improvement.

                            We would like the calendar display apps (events and group calendar) to allow a "month" view. We love the events parts and like that they link to a group calendar but would love to visualize this in a month or week format

                            • add the feature that could enable for me to jump to another page.

                              I am currently inserting the [table] into a page, but am unable to reach the targeted page without several scrolls because of the longer table in longitudinal direction with the increased numbers. I am aware that I might be able to move to the anchor with the edited source tagged to HTML, but I hope the defaulted feature to be available that could enable for me to jump within a page, instead of inserting a HTML tag.

                                • Customize SharePoint Sites Page

                                  Give users the ability to customize this landing page. For example, I would like to see all of the sites I am following instead of just my frequent ones or suggested ones. I know there is a search box, which I sometimes utilize, but it's not very noticeable so I forget it's there. Also, what's the difference between "Frequent" sites and "Recent" sites listed on the left? Seems redundant to me yet there are different sites listed? Doesn't make that much sense to me. Thank you.

                                  • expire external user access

                                    Similar to the ability to expire a guest link, it would be nice to have the ability to expire external users (in the Admin portal where you see external users listed per site collection?). When the authorized internal user invite an external user (outside organization), please offer a control to allow for the expiration of access (e.g. 7 days, 1 month, "custom" or hard date like June 30, 2016). This takes away follow-up administration, especially handy for invite clients to your portal for only the timeframe of a project.

                                    • PDF's to open in Adobe Acrobat

                                      When opening PDF's there needs to be an option to open the PDF in Adobe Acrobat rather than just in the browser. Opening in browser is OK for reading PDF's but if you want to work with them properly, you really need to be able to use Adobe.

                                      • Sync Exchange Caledar with SharePoint Online Calendar

                                        Any organization using exchange/outlook for years would need a way to move to SharePoint Online with calendar sync.
                                        When any organization has organization level calendars such as Project Calendar, Corporate Meetings calendar, Conference booking etc., there can be many such events that are shared across the teams. Any organization will not be willing to recreate the entire calendar in SharePoint online. It becomes extremely important as there can be dependency with many other applications, data etc., sitting on SharePoint online. As of now there is no third party solution that can do this! I am wondering Microsoft is not pushing…

                                        • Remove deleted sites from SharePoint Home

                                          On the 'Frequent sites' section of my home SharePoint page, it would be nice if deleted site collections were automatically removed from the 'Frequent sites' section. Clicking on the deleted site is just going to result in a '404' error.
