  1. Ticker tape feature for General company notifications

    Create a ticker tape feature to send periodic company updates versus sending emails to everyone.

  2. Allow me turn off automatic meetings from emails from the outlook client.

    Outlook has an inbuilt scanning feature which allows it to find out if you have an invite to email, a flight ticket, hotel reservations, package delivery and allows Outlook Calendar to automatically create calendar entries. I get multiple flight and travel emails for the same event and I will get 4 or more duplicate calendar items. I cannot turn it off in my client and don't have access to OWA where this is supposedly where you can turn off. Add a configuration item in the clients (Mac too please).

  3. Open installed onenote application instead of onenote in browser

    First off, thank you for getting one note integrated into Outlook, albeit in a not-so-perfect manner

    Currently, when you open onenote notes from a meeting, outlook prompts for opening one note and when the user selects, it opens out one note in the browser, even when onenote application is already installed.

    Can we modify the behavior to open the one note application directly, if it is already installed?

    I am really annoyed at Outlook for the Mac. It installs all these folder that I don't use, like:
    Favorites
    Archive
    Clutter
    Online Archive
    Conversation History
    RSS Subscriptions
    Sync Issues

    I don't use any of these, and they take up valuable space that could be used for folders that ARE IMPORTANT TO ME. I don't want to have so many folders that I have to scroll down a long list to find them.

    Can we get rid of these folders? It seems like Outlook keeps adding a new folder every year. We users should have an option to display or…

  7. When replying on a Calendar item, allow others to be added on the "To:" besides the Calendar item creator

    Often I need key members of a meeting to know I can't attend or have a conflict with a meeting- I need the ability to add an additional person to my tentative or decline response.
    I can do this in the Windows version without issues- the functionality is missing from the MAC version of Outlook

  8. provide a way to delay ALL outgoing emails sent on the weekend until Monday morning (or other pre-set times)

    Currently, there is the option to delay the sending of emails on an individual basis. I would like to see a feature where I can delay all outgoing messages to a pre-set time so that emails are not received by colleagues on the weekend.

  11. Allow multiple corporate accounts in Intune Company portal

    I work for multiple providers all using 365/Outlook. I've been able to set up multiple Outlook + Authenticator App accounts. However, I can't add multiple accounts to Intune Company corporate portal. I can't be the only person who has a part time career with multiple organisations who needs this flexibility. I need to be able to access email from all organisations on one device, as none of them provide work phones. Please make this possible! :-)

    FEEDBACK FEEDBACK

    If you were able to make outlook access a virtual proxy email server that would allow server side email filtering rules using the IMAP protocols OutLook would become my default email program.

    It should be possible to have an exchange server request all email from all accounts that a single person user has then run global and account specific rules on the exchange server and then update the individual email account servers (gmail, apple, yahoo…) whenever the user uses outlook to access email.

    By interlocking the proxy exchange server rule filtering to outlook you (Microsoft) maintain the user…

    Insert Link in Outlook - Office365 for Mac has a drop menu listing recent documents. This would be much more useful if the drop menu included collapsable “Recent Links”, Recent Headings (essentially an anchorpoint) and then “Recent Documents.”

  17. Allow adjusting the size of the desktop Outlook inbox window.

    My desktop Outlook inbox window cannot be shortened beyond a set point. I would like to make the window shorter so that I can have access to more of my screen area at the bottom of the window, to place a second window from another program in that space below the desktop version of the Outlook Inbox window. This seems to be a straight-forward issue. The user (me) simply needs a window size control that allows the window length (and width) to be shortened to a very small size, as is the case for most windows within the Mac OS.…

    At times, there are emails that are on different chains/thread/subject lines that are dependent upon one another. Provide the ability to 'pin' them together so the threads follow one another in conversations mode.
