  1. I don't have a idea, explain the advantage of using authenticator.

    To clarify, I just want to know the advantage of this app and what it will eliminate.

  2. Update Azure AD DS Documentation - Prevent Accedental Deletes

    Update documentation to include a functionality warning when managing OU's to include:

    If the account that created the OU (default owner) is deleted, there are no longer any accounts/groups assigned to the OU that would allow access to managing the OU. Access to the object is not allowed until permissions are explicitly granted to provide full access rights to another user or security group for the object.

  3. ServiceNow Enterprise App: Add funtionality to provision AAD Photo attribute to ServiceNow photo

    Currently many attributes can be provisioned in a ServiceNow Azure Enterprise app, but AD Photo is not an option. That would a great thing to be able to.

  4. Customize error message

    We'd like to customize some of the error messages received throughout the SSO process. In particular AADSTS50178 User account 'ty@.com' from identity provider does not exist in tenant '' and cannot access the application. We believe giving us the ability to customize these messages and provide direction to our users when they encounter these errors will significantly cut down on traffic to the helpdesk and improve our end-user's experience.

  5. Speed it up.

    It's slow to start, and the cursor disappears or freezes.
    Why must I see that annoying popup every time I log on, and the meaningless marketing gobbledegook when I click on "learn more".
    Does this also cause the annoyng "We're having trouble signing you out" when I logout of MS Outlook?
    Why must I give you permission to store my email, and notify me about "product updates" in order to post a complaint?

  6. "Stay Signed In" Screen

    To save power, I log out and shut down my computer every day. Every time I sign in the next day, I am offered the option of "Stay signed in?" Every time I select "No". Every time I tick the box that says "Don't show this again". Despite this, I am offered this screen every single time I sign in. What part of "Don't show this again" don't you understand? Can we just get rid of this unnecessary, unwanted, third screen? Or at least one that responds correctly to my request "Don't show this again".

  7. Why all the upheaval

    My 365 experience is turning into a bad infestation.

    The login screen changes every 3-6 months. this time to get rid of a back button. I am not sure if Microsoft is aware but many corporate users have taken to using a login script to map their one drive due to the fact that you keep logging users out of the system.

    This has been the bane of our experience with using 365, continuous logging on. Just when we have it under control Microsoft go and change the login page throw the script into disarray and put us back in…

  8. When you send out the code it would be a good idea to send out a six digit code and not a 5 digit code if you expect 6 digits to log in.

  11. When will MS start concentrating on important things versus keep changing the interfaces to drive everyone insane?

    Why not just make this to work well first and then maybe change the interfaces. What possess anyone to keep changing it. One month I finally learn how to use one portal and start doing my work someone in Microsoft is poised to fu....ing change it. It is a culture in Microsoft to disregard end user TIME. Why not just concentrate on making things like OneDrive work well before they start changing the way things are done. MS should learn a lot from Apple.

  12. I have 4 Office365 accounts that I have to use every day and I do find it frustrating i have do do many tasks inside Outlook find who I am

    I have 4 Office365 accounts that I have to use every day and I do find it frustrating i have do many tasks inside Outlook to find who I am logged in to in each outlook window. This should be easy to read somewhere inside the outlook window so I do not need to do any work finding out what account I am in. I also have a company Office365 account and often when I try to start Office365 tools like "Teams" for another account it automatically jump in to teams on office account. When you have many Office365 accounts…

  14. When trying to open Excel, I get a pop up window to learn more and does not respond, so I can't update the Excel Spreadsheet.

    When trying to open Excel from Microsoft SharePoint site, Remove the pop up window, or fix the pop up so it can be deleted 'x' or the 'learn more' underscore works.

  15. Login should be a single page instead of two

    Login should be a single page instead of two

    Currently, users have to fill their username, then wait for a second page to load where they can fill their password. Combining these into one page would save time and simplify the login process. It'd also make it easier for password managers etc. to ensure the correct password is filled.

  16. Microsoft continues its legacy of designing ****** user experiences

    The only reason that I am using Outlook is that it is required by the firm I work for otherwise I will never use any of their products. MSFT can be relied upon to provide the shittiest user experience.

    After signing up for 'remember me' in login portal, I have to sign in all the time.
    They say that they texted me the verification code, but it never arrives. So I have to ask them to call me.
    I don't have my phone with me, there is no other way that I can log in now.

    Why don't you guys…

  18. Pre-view error

    Since I click on your pre-view of the up coming changes I have had problems with internet explorer remembering my password. This is frustrating because I open a new internet browser window often throughout my work day. Your fixes also don't work.
