  1. Office 2016 update notice with details emailed to user if requested

    With Office 2016 having C2R and updates being applied automatically, users or admins are not aware of when changes are occurring and what is being changed/added.

    As an admin, I would like to see the release notices of each Office upgrade emailed to me. Perhaps option to just have it in the Office 365 notifications.

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3158453 is the link for may's MSI update. It would be great to get this data emailed to users that want to know what has changed.

    Perhaps if https://technet.microsoft.com/library/mt592918.aspx were updated so each version had a link to what was changed, this would help keep…

        • External Users should not be in Active Users

          Each time add an external user to share OneDrive for Business files with, it adds the external recipient to Active Users in the admin portal. External Users should be in a completely separate area. I should at least be able to filter the users in such a way to only see External users. Instead, I have to search through all of our unlicensed users and identify the external users based on their user names. This is incredibly tedious. Also, because of the way your system considers external users the same as internal users, it has to alter the user name…

          • Remove “Automatic accept or decline” From User Calendar Options

            Since the intent of the “Automatic accept or decline” is for Resources, not for Users, can you please remove the “Automatic accept or decline” Calendar configuration from the Backstage Options (should be Administrative only)? Or, it would be helpful to update verbiage to explain the intent of the function to only be used for Resources, not Users.

            Currently, the option leads to End-User confusion.

            • Allow admin to install S/MIME control for all users on a computer

              Currently S/MIME control for IE requires that the user who wants to use S/MIME control has to install this themselves. This should be changed so an admin can install the S/MIME control and have it available for use for all users of the computer. In its current state it requires the user to have local admin access which is a poor security practice. I had opened a support case with O365 support but there was no remedy and they advised posting here.

              • Logo nella firma

                Se si vuole posizionare il logo con il testo intorno, bisogna disporre il testo incorniciato o ravvicinato.
                Outlook provvede a farlo, ma ogni volta che inserisce la firma fa la domanda

                  Please fix OneTastic plugin for OneNote 2016 as soon as possible. People are really disappointed that it doesn't work in the newest OneNote and nobody seems to fix it!

                  And please integrate this macro functionality in the next version of OneNote.

                      When searching your mail inbox in prior releases of Outlook you use to be able to FLAG the email as well apply CATEGORY codes to the email. This no longer is working, This was very efficient when searching through a senders emails to mark them for follow-up etc when you receive hundreds of emails a day. Thanks!

                      • Renewing subscriptions to Office 365

                        When a business subscription is renewed, Microsoft makes each user renew/reinstall the Office 365. Not all users are technically competent. It is wrong for your prompts to favor upgrades to a newer version from 2013 (in fact you somewhat hide this option) This leads to wasted time by my IT guys having to help out my employees who either opted to upgrade (which we're not ready to do so yet due to interface issues) or employees got stuck and couldn't upgrade and use their software EVEN though it was paid for. This created an expense for my business--a cost that…

                        • Why isn't SELFCERT.EXE available on the Start menu in Office 2013 and Office 2016?

                          I've done a search of the forum, and this question regularly arises in the form of "How do I create a certificate for signing my code?" Each time, the answer is to dig down into C:\Program Files and manually run SELFCERT.EXE. From my perspective, that is a rather lame answer to give. It would be far better for Microsoft to reinstate the proper entry in the Start menu.

                          So, Microsoft, why haven't you reinstated the Start menu entry for selfcert.exe? Why do you keep making Office users dig down into the bowels of MS Office's program directories?

                            The GPO templates OPAX and ADMX files still show "Branch" instead of "Channel". I would suggest that Microsoft update their Group Policy templates to use the new naming convention ("Channel update") to avoid customer confusion.

                            • Please enhance efforts of the internal Microsoft support teams to communicate with each other

                              My issue involved a certificate error that prevented users in my organization from using Mobile Office365 applications because they could not login to their domain account in the Mobile App.

                              During my interaction with MIcrosoft Support, I had to work with two different teams (the front-end team, and a back-end support team). Occasionally I would receive emails from either team requesting the same information that I provided the other team the prior day. If teams internal to Microsoft worked more together, the need to contact me for the same information repeatedly would be reduced.

                                  Hi,

                                  I was using Office 2010 for a couple of years and in my family, we were able to install Office 2010 on 3 computers, but you removed that with Office 2013 I think.

                                  Did you ever think about families who don't want a subscription based service?

                                  At home we have 4 computers, so that could be great if you could allow us to install Office on two devices at least, because $600 to install Office it's a lot.

                                  Because $150 for only one PC without features update and Office 365 subscriber is $99.99/Year, so let's say $300 until Office…

                                      • Show Full File Name on Attachments

                                        When attaching documents change the view so you can see the entire
                                        file name and not just the first few characters.
