  1. Copy/paste a Goto Meeting Invite gives me a lot of weird characters

    When I copy/paste a Goto Meeting from my web browser into an Outlook message, I get gibberish, like this:

    ko if: meetingSettings().audio.audioType === 'voip' /ko ko if: (meetingSettings().audio.audioType === 'pstn' || meetingSettings().audio.audioType === 'voipAndPstn')
    ko text:'share.dialin' | i18nYou can also dial in using your phone./ko ko text:'countries.' + $data.country | i18nUnited States/ko ko if: $data.tollFree /ko ko if: !$data.tollFree +1 (571) 317-3116 /ko
    ko text:'meetings.phonenumberchange.invitation.accesscode' | i18nAccess Code/ko: 671-999-555

    But what I want is:

    Please join my meeting from your computer, tablet or smartphone.
    https://global.gotomeeting.com/join/671999555

    You can also dial in using your phone.

  2. Outlook 2016 should behave like a modern Mac application

    Outlook should behave like a modern Mac application and remember all of the windows you previously had open when launching Outlook.

    I frequently have 5 to 10 emails open in separate windows. Some are existing messages that I need to reply to and some are ones that I am currently replying to. And yes I know that the ones you are working on are saved as drafts and you can add reminders to work on others, etc. but if these windows aren't re-opened after I launch Outlook I will often forget I have drafts I am working on or forget…

  6. Allow notifications for shared inboxes

    Currently, when sharing an inbox with the rest of my team, I do not receive notifications for new emails. This is a big deal for support teams who share an account (e.g. itsupport@example.com), who need to make sure someone responds immediately when different people may need to monitor the same message queue

  7. Add fuzzy search on folders

    When having several folder names where the first x letters are the same it is tiresome to have to spell it out until the first differentiating letter. Making the matching fuzzy would save a lot of typing.

  8. Add jsuppo

    Add support for right-clicking a link and downloading it using the default browser instead of just opening it. Worst case, even just saving it in the background to the Downloads folder would be good

  11. Add an option to sort mail by "pinned" status

    On the outlook 365 website, there's a feature to "pin" messages to the top of your inbox so you can quickly refer to them

    Could you guys add an option to Outlook 2016 for Mac to enable sorting mail by "pinned" status? I'm sure this would be a pretty simple option to add

    I end up pinning alot of messages when I use the web portal - but then when I load up outlook on my computer, they all disappear, and I have no way to sort/find them again

    Thank you!

  12. Signature font size does not cohere between editor and its appearance in an Email

    The font size which can be set in the signature editor is -not- the font size you receive when writing an Email and using the signature.
    So atm it is just trial and error regarding the outcome.

  14. Make the Autosave drop down optional

    The autosave dropdown is very distracting - please add a way to disable this

  15. Improve Recurrence or Repeat feature to include recur or repeat after last complete.

    I remember in previous versions for Windows you could setup a repeating task to repeat or recur from the date you completed it and skip all the days missed in between the date it was due and the date you completed it.

    So if a task was due on a specific day, and it is supposed to repeat everyday, but you missed a few days, you won't have to click complete for the days missed until the current day. It would recur after the last date completed.

    Just as an example (maybe not a good one but...) if you had…

  16. Ever since Outlook upgraded - without any warning to its users - my Outlook for Mac 2011 no longer works.

    I have used my hotmail account ever since the late 90s and I am very disappointed that Outlook have upgraded without any prior warning to its users. I have Outlook for Mac on my laptop and use it with IMAP. Ever since the upgrade, it hasn't worked. Further, I've had people complaining to me that they have been unable to open my mail, or they haven't received it, or their emails aren't getting through to me. At a time when I am trying to organise my wedding, not being able to access and use my hotmail has been very upsetting.

  18. Allow use of Microsoft Word as Editor

    It would be great to be able to edit email in Microsoft Word for much better formatting options in email.
