        • Share Outlook Notes

          The notes in Outlook need to have an option to share within an org or people. Multi edit can be added later if needed but I should be able to share the note so people can view it and as I update the note they get the update. I don't want to forward the note everytime.

          • Fix notes so that I can sort on columns. Appears that you can only sort on "Date Modified"

            When I click on Categories or Date Created, it does not sort my note entries. Only Date Modified works. Please fix

            • Voice record

              Hello everyone. how about Outlook for desktop (for Mac, Windows, iOS and Android) to create the "voice recording" function in notes or tasks? This is key to recording audios at business meetings. For sellers and business people this is critical. What do you think of that? I currently use this function through Evernote. It would be perfect if it were by Outlook, since I use for emails and calendar work.

              • Move frequently accessing notes to the list top

                Move frequently accessing notes to the list top.

                Outlook Note is one of my primarily used functions. It's efficient and easy to use. But there's one fault, that it can't move a note to the list top, makes me depressed. To almost everyone who often uses Note, he would have several frequently accessing notes, but there's no trick to make it.
                I'm using the OS X edition of Outlook 15.40(171108), and I tried several means to achieve this function, but it's in vain. Firstly, I assigned those special notes a different category, and sorted the note list by categories, but…

                          • Text formatting in shared notes

                            In our company we make use of shared notes (Outlook 2016). Text formatting is removed as soon as another user accesses a note, so we are forced to use plain text instead at this point. A fix with one of the next updates would be very appreciated.
