  1. Provide Language Choice for Office 365 for synchronized users

    My company has over 250,000 users that are spread across 40 countries in the world. As part of our journey to Office 365 we have performed a syncronization with Azure AD.

    During this process we have many users who are using a different language within their country than that of the country they are assigned. An example is English users who are working from Belgium or the Netherlands.

    By default what is happening is the users are being given the language for the country they are in as their default. They are not given the option to change this.

  2. Onboarding page for new users

    For end-user experience / security / easy enrollment / completeness of profile information, it would be nice if there is a onboarding page for new users.

    The users gets his or her personal account and temporary password with which he or she can login to the onboarding page. Login to other services is also possible but results in a redirect to the onboarding page.

    On the onboarding page the user must reset the temporary password to it's own password (with customizable info about password requirements), fullfils the secret questions, can register to MFA and SSPR, can review, adjust and supplement…

  3. Wait Until Submission to Display Errors

    Wait Until Submission to Display Errors

    Example: as soon as I begin typing into and email field, an error is displayed right away to indicate it is not a valid email value. This is very annoying for users.

    It would be better to wait to display errors until the user clicks one of the "submit" buttons (Send verification email, create etc).

    Or at the very least, wait until the field loses focus.

  4. Allow the Forgot my password link to be changed to my own SSPR solution

    Allow me to customize the Forgot my password link on the Azure AD sign in page so I can send users to our existing SSPR solution.

  5. there should be an option to search the users or sort them in the azure active directory group members

    when we create a group on azure active directory we add members in it but when the number increases and we need to track a user . it becomes a very tedious task as we dont have the option to search the user or sort them .

  6. Customize error message

    We'd like to customize some of the error messages received throughout the SSO process. In particular AADSTS50178 User account 't***y@****.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.

  7. Add option for Resend One Time Password

    If we have a option for Resend OTP(One Time Password), it will be useful at times when the mobile phone is not having proper signal. Resend OTP with timer.

  8. MyApps Approval Request approval link

    The link "Go to My Apps" should point at the application and the correct tenant where the approval was made. ex. https://account.activedirectory.windowsazure.com/r?tenantId=1d063515-0000-4195-9486-ea65df434faa/applications

    If the approval was made from a Azure B2B partner it doesn't make much sense to take the user to the users default directory

  10. Support substring searches for groups in myapps.microsoft.com

    When a user goes to myapps.microsoft.com and wants to join a group. The search query does not allow for partial names to be searched. A user needs to know the starting name for the group. As an example: a group named "Product and Service Management" if a users does a search for "Service" or "Management" the group will not display. The user would need to search for "Product" for the proper result to be returned. This search experience does not seem to be consistent with the other areas of myapps such as searching for groups you below or own or…

  11. Send out an email when users gets assigned to application

    I have been migrating our 100s of applications to Azure from an OpenAM SSO solution.
    When a user gets added to an application in Azure. It would be a great idea that the users gets an email stating that they have been added.
    If users can get alerts that a new application has been added for access, that would help with end user confusion.

  12. Source of Authority in user overview page should show same info as Source in user profile

    In New Azure Portal it would be of more use if
    Azure Active Directory -> Users and Groups -> All users
    page column "Source of Authority" would show that same value as in
    Azure Active Directory -> Users and Groups -> All users -> <click a user>-> Profile and field Source

    Ps. This works better in Azure Classic Portal. Ds.

  13. Allow the thumbnailPhoto attribute to be synced multiple times between Azure AD and Exchange Online

    Currently, "The thumbnailPhoto attribute is synced only one time between Azure AD and Exchange Online. Any later changes to the attribute from the on-premises environment are not synced to the Exchange Online mailbox." Please remove this subsequent limitation so that updated photos propagate.

  14. Remove "No account? Create one!" in branding settings

    We have branded the Azure AD login page that is used by all our end users to make them feel more at home. However, there's a choice on this branded login page saying "No account? Create one!" which creates confusion. Since we're running synchronized identities for most of our customers, this does not apply for them. Therefore, make it possible on the Azure AD Company branding settings page to:

    Show "No account? Create one!" on the signed in page? YES or NO

  15. 2 step verification - I am the Admin and my phone number changed

    You lost your phone or got a new phone number. If you've lost your phone or gotten a new number, you can either sign in using a different method or ask your administrator to clear your settings. We strongly recommend letting your administrator know if your phone was lost or stolen, so the appropriate updates can be made to your account. After your settings are cleared, you'll be prompted to register for two-step verification the next time you sign in. I cant get a verification code because the number that I am trying to update no longer exists and I…

  18. 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…

  19. 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.
