  1. 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?

  4. 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.

  5. 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…

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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…

  11. 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.

  13. URL to remove background image from the sign-in experience on VDI or high latency links

  14. The sign in process is a pain, why you have gone to the bother of changing the look when it is the function that needed changing.

    It is very tiresome to have to login several times a day and then to be greeted by an experience that requires 3 steps to get in. why do I need to tell you if this speeds up sign in when you know it just slows down a slow sign in. Then while in the middle of work, I am notified my login has expired and I need to again login. I think you need to offer selectable sign in options. The security needs of a group are quite different than the security needs of a single business operator working…

  17. video

    The AAD connect video voice-over is unintelligible. I know you want the videos to be done by the engineers so they know what they are talking about but if you can't make out what they are saying, what's the point in putting a video on there?

  18. right now user is prompted for additional information even when MFA and pw recovery is turned off. Users are now more likely to be phished

    Right now users are prompted for additional information even when MFA and self service sign on is turned off. Microsoft can't tell us why this is or when the popup will happen. They can't even tell us the url! And there is now way to bypass this. If I just tell my users to answer these questions whenever the additional information request pops up, and I can't tell them the URL, their guard is down and users are now more likely to be phished!

  19. ASR on Red Had Linux - unstable after kernel update

    After enabling ASR on Red Hat 7.3, a subsequent kernel update to 7.4 caused ASR to start failing. I then disabled / enabled ASR replication which made it work again.

    After a few days, the Redt Hat OS started crashing due to kernel panic.

    Existing support tickets

    SR 118022117678398, 118020117568199

    We have gone away from ASR for now and created new Red Hat VMs from scratch without ASR enabled.

    How can this be prevented in the future releases of ASR? Disabling kernel update from yum install update can be another course of action until ASR supports an OS version.

  20. Does Microsoft Azure support follow SLA?

    Hi there, I raised a ticket 118020217581898 at least 3 days ago, but no one response so far. I am not sure if Microsoft AZure follow SLA or not. According to my understanding, for Severity B, the response time is 4 hours. If Microsoft can not provide service following b y SLA, why are we paying big money for annual subscription? The service you provide does NOT deserve your reputation. Consider this as formal complaint for your record.
