  1. Add the ability to reset/clear SSPR registration information.

    We have the ability to clear/reset MFA registration information. It would be great if we had the ability to do the same for SSPR information. Our service desk has asked us a few times if we could do this but we tell them no. It would also be great for us when we try and test new registration steps.

    • Enable in AAD admin portal for allow only select users or groups to change password from Office 365 Portal

      This option is for the user security for not allow change password if the user is not enable MFA, in the case that other user know your password and MFA is not enabled.

      • SSPR APIs to create or update challenge questions

        It would be good to have APIs to update the challenge questions and response for SSPR. in that way, it can be integrated with an existing user self - registration solution.

        • Prevent user from reset Password with same mobile phone - app & message

          Today a user can use the same mobile phone for password reset by using text message / phone call and authenticator app...

          To view the text message, answer the call and / or accept the push notification it is not necessary to unlock the phone.

          So what's the use of forcing two methods for password reset?

          We need an option to prevent user from reset password by using app notification and phone message / call. The Authenticator App could access the mobile phone number, used by the device and the admin should have the option to prevent accepting push notifications…

          • Allow use of custom controls/conditional access with self service password reset

            Allow one of the self service password reset options to be a custom control, such as calling Duo/Okta (currently allowed as a conditional access control). As a company that doesn't use Azure MFA it would be good to be able to use another MFA provider instead of requiring a second mobile application be enrolled, or using less secure methods like SMS.

              • Do not take users in circles! I have been able too do nothing but change passwords!

                I have a touch secure phone - shouldn’t that be enough? I really need copies of my last three months pay stubs, but, it seems that I need to be an engineer to do so!

                      • SSPR applicable for mail enabled security group members

                        Suppose you have enabled SSPR for group A and group B is part of Group A, which is also a mail-enabled security group. Does SSPR apply on group B members? If not, is there any supported document for this

                        • Allow configuration of SSPR policy guidelines and "strength meter" for On-premises-to-Azure synchronized accounts

                          It would be incredibly useful for our users to have some password guidance when utilizing the Self-service Password Reset portal. Currently, when resetting a password, no policy guidelines or "strength meter" is indicated for our synchronized on-prem accounts. Users are also not informed as to the specific conditions causing their new password to be rejected.
                          Just a "password guidelines" interface in Azure >Password Reset that allows administrators to outline conditions (even if these are not enforced by Azure). These would then be displayed and compared against as a user selects a password.

                            • Respect my time by warning about outlook auto-logout.

                              Outlook logs me out at inopportune times, such as right before I need to access an e-mail for a critical meeting, or send one last status report before retiring for the evening. Causes several minutes of wasted time to recover session, and/or cancellation of meeting due to inaccessible data.

                              1. Don't force an active outlook or other cloud session (excel, calendar, etc) to log out without first posting a warning at least 24 hours in advance of the logout event, and allow the user to cancel (not delay) the
                              pending logout. If the user cancels the logout, reset the logout…

                                • customize email 'from' address on notification emails

                                  The send-from and text of the email notice that is sent to users when they reset their password using SSPR needs to be able to be customized using values specified by us for our tenant.

                                  Currently, the message is sent from 'Microsoft on behalf of Duracell <msonlineservicesteam@microsoftonline.com>' which is often spoofed and is caught by impersonation rules. The message is a security communication and as such it should comply with security best practice. So we should be able to customize the FROM address to reflect our domain and also the message text so that users are clear that…

                                      It would be great if there is an option to exclude a group in SSPR configuration page. Or at least option to add more than one group in SSPR.

                                      • Don't improperly prompt for password reset accounts when both are already set

                                        I already have two valid and validated xternal accounts. But I was denied logging in and repeated taken back to the verify screen even though both external accounts are correct. Total fail on Microsofts part. You guys are terrible and unprofessional.

                                        • Provide better user experience: Guided tour and better guidance

                                          Provide a better end user experience with guided tour of the portal.

                                          Beside the fact the users really need a guided tour of the experience. We would also like to some kind of text on the “Security Information page” for users that have previously enrolled. It would be nice with a easy / simple to message that the user is all set, if they have 1-2 fully verified methods of authentications already (You Are All Set – Everything looks GOOD. Go to Office 365). With an optional link for Office 365 and/or MyApps.
