  3. Text field in left navigation side for fast searching folders below

    Not for searching mails, but for folders below. When you are typing in the textfield, only the folders who's name beginning with the typed letters stay visible, the other folders disappear. If you have a long list, you can go in a fast way to the folder you need at this way. If you clear the textfield, of course all folders are again available in the navigation screen.

  5. Printed document names do not include "Microsoft Outlook" like other office applications

    Add "Microsoft Outlook" to the document name on submitted print jobs. Other MS Office applications do this currently. Microsoft Word 2016 for Mac submits print jobs as "Microsoft Word - Untitled" whereas Outlook submits it as "Untitled". This allows print servers and print policy systems to identify the printing application.

  6. dyslexia fonts accessibility

    Fonts like opendyslexia can make a big difference for dyslexic users. Could you please make something like Opendyslexia available as an option to apply to all incoming emails, menus etc?

    At the moment we can download the font and apply it to OUTGOING email, but there is no obvious way to change the font of incoming mail.

    Thais would make a massive difference to many people.

    thanks

  9. I suggest that you make it possible to have the date received in DESCENDING order and at the same time the CATEGORIES in ASCENDING order. It

    It is VERY ANNOYING that if I have Categories in ascending order, I can't have Date Received in descending order!!!!!

  12. Make Outlook more readable

    Outlook has become less and less readable over the past year. There has been a shift toward light fonts and colors, and it makes the software less usable overall (especially for your visually impaired users). The most recent change was changing the "Accept, Tentative, Decline" buttons for calendar invites to use a very light blue.

    Please make Outlook more readable again.

  13. Add scheduling back into Office for Mac.

    Scheduling is great for automating folder cleanup. Not having to rely on server side cleanup is great.

  16. Alert before quitting Outlook

    Too many times I have mistakenly hit command+Q and quitting Outlook, with many emails sitting on my desktop that I had to respond to. If Outlook quits without a "Warning: do you want to quit <Quit Outlook> <Cancel>" then it should automatically bring opened emails and all else to the exact same state when it quit.

  17. Common Backup File Format for Mac and Windows

    Hello!
    Outlook should have the same backup file formats, regardless of the platform/host. If neither PST or OLM are appropriate, a new file type should be developed to become a universal standard, in order to create seamless workflows.
    Currently, is like having two Photoshop file types (PSD and PSSomething), depending on the operating system you're working, making it a very unproductive process.

  20. Change color of some Folders in Navigation Side

    Handy if you can give a Folder in the navigation list a color (from text or from background, same way as you can do in Mac OS). So it is more easy to find important folders if you have a long list in navigation screen when your scrolling down.
