  5. Clickable link in calendar reminder window

    I would like for it to be easier to click a URL contained within the location field of a meeting (to join an online meeting) — from the Reminders window.

    I should be able to click the URL from the reminder window to automatically join the meeting.

  6. Allow editing of calendar invitation titles from other people

    Previously, when receiving a calendar invite, I could rename the invite so that it was easy for me to quickly see what client was involved with the meeting. Now I am unable to edit the titles, and all of my meetings have similar titles (like GoToMeeting) requiring me to individually click into every calendar invite to see what the real subject of the meeting is.

    When contacting support I was told the ability to change calendar invite titles was marked as a "bug" by developers and removed intentionally, but it's made my life miserable to have to constantly open every…

  10. Dark Mode Option

    I love the idea of the dark mode option, however on most cases I find it hard to read with a dark background due to recent updates. I hopes there's a permanent option to switch to light mode for reading pane, instead of having to push the light switch all the time when scrolling through emails.
    Now I gotta turn off the whole dark mode option for reading and efficiency purposes.

  11. Able to choose public or private sharing option upon attaching the cloud links for “Insert Link” feature.

    Be able to attach files using the Smart link feature and choose either to share it to the public or to private individuals. Most of the users use the Smart link feature and sending it to someone outside of the organization.

  15. Notification Rules/Alerts for Sub Folders.

    It is important to set different notification rules for subfolders to manage the mails efficiently.

    We see the badges, the number of mail received in the subfolder, but doesn’t notify us that a new email arrived.

    There should be an option in the rules whether we want desktop alert or notification for emails that come into that particular subfolder.

  16. Customizable quick action icons hovering over messages

    I want to be able to customize my quick action icons that appear when I hover over my messages. It's so easy to accidentally delete or archive a message when trying to mark it as important.

  18. Outlook appearance is too bright in regular mode and too dark in dark mode. Additional viewing backgrounds in preferences.

    Regular mode viewing is too bright and too washed out confusing the reading pane with the sidebar and the titles panes. The reading pane should stand out without being too bright and the side bars and title panes to be more indicative of where the focus is. Similarly in dark mode, too dark and the different panes become a scrambled mess visually.
