  1. Time to leave

    Add "Time to Leave" as alert option for appointments.

    Using current location -> location of invite similar to how the iPhone does it. We understand this may require upstream changes to Office 365 unless it currently supports it.

  2. I STILL can't preview or print emails after nearly three weeks! And why are my deleted emails accumulating?

    I STILL can't preview or print emails after nearly three weeks! And why do my deleted emails continue to accumulate? And the number of "Sent" emails doesn't show up.

  4. Creating new mail folders, default should be below inbox not in the inbox.

    When creating new folders, default should be below the inbox. Not in the inbox.
    "The Inbox syncs more frequently than any other and should be kept as clean as possible. (this is the number one cause of problems with sync). Do NOT make subfolders under the Inbox."

  5. Configuration via profile to disable 'on my computer'

    As IT, we don't want customers potentially losing mail server-side by moving it to a folder that only exists locally, so the ability to be able to disallow that pre-customer setup.
    Among lots of other things we should be able to do via configuration profile when it comes to setting 'friendly defaults', signatures, etc.

  8. Show the parent folder in the list of suggested folders for operations like moving an email

    When moving emails, adding the parent folders to the suggested "Move to" list as a way to identify different subfolders that may have the same name but be located under different parent folders would be useful so we are able to select the exact wanted folder.

  15. Outlook Directory Search

    When using the search function of the Outlook address book (not the general Outlook search) there are no results found when a search is being initiated based upon the last part of a last name.

    Example: When trying to look for a person called Armin van Buuren, it is impossible to find this person when “Buuren” is being used as the search query. It only works when using “van Buuren”.

    Please allow the duplication of subfolders under "Inbox" to "Archive" so as to Archive one message in the exact same subfolder when clicking "Archive". Thank you!

  18. Let Outlook be controlled by other Mac Apps.

    The macOS operating system allows apps to be controlled by other apps. It would be nice if I could use my GTD app (Things for Mac) to work with Outlook. Providing a back link to an email, e.g.

  20. Search for Exact Words

    Can we search in outlook for an item containing an EXACT word? And not to show the events with the word as part of another word.
    example, say I am searching for events containing the word “DU”, the results are also events containing words like “INTRODUCE” !!
