There are a few shortcuts on the OWA web app, like bold (Ctrl + B).
One thing I find myself commonly missing is the shortcut to indent/outdent text.
Tab of course will not work because it will be handled by the browser to focus on elements.
I suggest using Ctrl + ] and Ctrl + [ to indent and outdent respectively.
There are many other actions that do not have shortcuts, all the actions on the bottom of the email composer should have a shortcut, but for now this feature would be great.
I have had employees leave SSW and we have had little dramas later… this is when I discover that we have lost their forms. Has this happened to any of you?
Losing Microsoft Forms when employees leave your company can be avoided by making sure they share it to a team and not to one user.
I would like a warning in the form that says this form is an orphan and is not shared to a team.
…even better, have an admin portal that allows you to assign the missing form to a new owner.
A little one here… I think the formatting would be nicer on iOS if the people were indented a little under each team
See image – the first column needs to be widened by default.
Even better would be the ability to drag to widen.
One of the things I’ve learnt using Microsoft Forms is that employees want to get feedback on their feedback, otherwise they feel that their time went into a blackhole.
Therefore, after all the responses come in, I review the comments and I find I want to bold and highlight remarkable feedback.
Workaround – You cannot do this now, so we must copy the responses into a Word document and annotate it there. Then I record a video and send it to the staff, an example (of a public one) is below.
- Please allow Microsoft Forms responses to be annotated
- Please allow an emoji to be given to a response
- Please give us an extra “Notes” column after the “Responses” column
- Please have the whole form have a “Notes” field too, so I can place comments there
E.g. the URL of the feedback video
I would like SharePoint News to have the number of views of each item.
Hopefully you’d see growth over time.
Also, the combo (see image) could include an option to sort by “most viewed”.
This problem comes up every couple of weeks so I thought of 4 things that would help Power BI users.
See email of failed refresh below. I get this email periodically telling me of an error. Thank you.
When I look into the error… sometimes it has magically resolved itself and it was a waste of time me looking into it.
Here is an example…
Suggestion #1 – Emails
We currently get an email on refresh failure. We need one on the next success too (only after the last one failed). Please.
Suggestion #2 – UX
Please add a Duration column in the Refresh History table next to the End Time.
Suggestion #3 – UX
Please provide more flexibility with refresh timings by allowing users to pick the time rather than just 30-minute intervals (change from combo to textbox).
Suggestion #4 – Please provide more info
The details link unfortunately does not provide much detail apart from saying it was a timeout issue.
This report uses an SSW gateway and my best guess is that this was due to some issue connecting to the Gateway.
If that is the reason it would be helpful to provide that info.
I often have problems giving specific feedback on Microsoft products and this example in Microsoft Outlook is an example.
Delay Send has been a feature I have used since I think the first version back in 1996.
Today I am sending emails to a co-worker at SSW on a Saturday and I see this cool new feature.
I think WOW! And I use it and think this Insight work Microsoft has done is super cool. ⭐
So I wonder how this works and look at “Delivery Options” and then I see this field is out of sync…
- I think to myself that the old feature I use is client side.
- I guess the new feature I am trying is server side.
So I read the help and am not enlightened. ☹️
So let’s tell Microsoft I didn’t like it.
I click “Not useful” and nothing obvious happens (see below image)
- I expect to see a red icon and a text field appear
- I expect to be able to tell Microsoft why it is not useful.
- I expect to get a URL that I can track the issue. This could be a nice integration point into Microsoft Rewards
If you edit a response that has answers, you suddenly lose the nice bars on your graph and they move into the field “Other”.
Please add a warning “you will lose your graph data as this option has xx responses”.
