  1. 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

  2. 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.

  4. 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…

  5. Password reset

    Fix SSPR site display issue on mobile devices

    The bottom Microsoft banner hides the captcha code input box on iOS and Android devices.

  6. 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…

  8. allow to add more than one group when configuring Azure AD SSPR

    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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. Allow password strength message to be displayed to the user upon password reset

    E.g. Please enter a password that is between 8-16 characters long etc to give users guidance on what the criteria is for the new password

  13. Possibility to sync secret question

    It would be nice if there comes the ability to sync the secret questions including the per user answers from the on-premises MFA to and from the SSPR in Azure AD.

    Thank you for your feedback! We are working on capabilities that allow you to set a user’s methods (such as security questions) in Azure AD programatically. This could be used to accomplish the scenario you described. Does that meet your requirements?

    Thanks,
    Sadie Henry

  14. Send alert to users to reverify their secondary authentication options.

    Currently, users don't know that their secondary authentication methods are expiring. An alerts needs to be generated to these users before the methods expire and need to be verified by the user again.

    Thank you for your feedback. A couple of questions:

    1. Can you clarify what you mean by authentication methods that expire? Azure AD doesn’t currently have that functionality.
    2. You can make users review their registered methods on a regular basis using the control that is in the Registration section of the Password reset section in the Azure AD portal.

    Thanks,
    Sadie Henry

  15. Need to strip out the special characters when answering SSPR questions

    Like FIM, it would be nice if SSPR stripped out the spaces (in the answers) and the special characters so that users are not challenged remembering the exact answer, such as hyphens or apostrophes on answers.
