  1. Request for Activation ID to have configurable default value

    When a user launches Office ProPlus for the first time, it gives the user a dialog box to log into Office365 to activate. It defaults this box with the userPrincipalName it pulls from the local AD server. If there is no sync between local AD and Azure AD,or the userPrincipalName does not match between local AD and AzureAD, the dialog box will fight the user trying to put in the correct Activation ID.
    Can we have the option to configure the Office ProPlus desktop client to not pull Activation ID from local AD and/or to choose an alternate value to…

  5. Microsoft 365 Apps device based licensing for less than 1000 users

    We are a small non-profit Registered Training Organisation in Australia with around 170 licensed users, and we currently get Microsoft non-profit pricing.

    We have about 150 classroom laptops that are configured in Intune to have a guest account that require Microsoft 365 Apps device based licensing so that we can teach Word, Excel, PowerPoint etc.

    Currently we are stuck on Office 2019 forever, as we do not qualify for Device-based licensing for Microsoft 365 Apps for enterprise.

  10. Remember who I am online as well as your automated bank statements

    I am aghast that I cannot sign into my account. I used to have a business account that I switched to a personal account. I am fighting cancer so I haven't used this product as often as I had been, but when I use it, I cannot access all the features because you do not recognize me. However, you are quite capable of billing me each month.

    I spent a good amount of time switching accounts from Resonate SVC to iemailsue@gmail.com. The files from the old were supposed to be loaded into my OneDrive account. They are not. I…

  16. Ordinary not-tech saavy persons can't even understand all the jargon. , nor even read everything. You've got to do better.

    Plain English, not all the tech jargon, so that non-tech saavy users, who've spent their $$$ are not just BULLIED into clicking "yes" & ok & "I agree", just to proceed to use devices/software. Or just have live talk, not web chat, but people for someone to speak with. Seems like a new antitrust/monopoly case is in the making.

  18. enable Accounts\aliases to enable 2 step verification when Windows doesn't recognise me

    I need to change my phone no for 2 step verification. I've searched settings\account\person info but there is not an option. Windows checks the user by observing vertices of the face. its tool is amazing as it can detect at small angles. but occasionally it didn't recognise me and advised it was phoning me. I didn't receive the call for 2 step verifying. possibly as it's using a former tel no.

  20. add a one week grace period to reactivate computers that haven’t connected to the internet in more thant 30 days

    I rarely use my laptop except when traveling and it’s frustrating to try to edit an excel file on a plane - only to have the copy locked because more than 30 days have gone by and the computer hasn’t connected to the internet.

    It makes my copy of of office almost useless.
