Customise account icon
The new navigation pane doesn't allow customisation of the initials in the circle. With multiple accounts in outlook it's impossible to tell them apart.
Let users set a custom account avatar.
Having currently three Accounts in my Outlook App I feel that I can’t identify each account easily. Reason being that the account icon is - as per my reading - randomly picked by ???. Wouldn’t it be great if the user could define / design or at least select each account icon individually ?
Being able to sort these account icon circles would be good. Without having to delete all the accounts and start over adding them starting with the one you want to be on top... Then second.... Then third and so on.
Pls add a SORT option... A right click hole and slide/move would work peachily.

Please make the account badge/symbol on the top left of the screen customizable.
Today the random color picked by the app for my account is an ugly brown ... it hurts my eyes!
Thank you and best regards, N.

If you could remove outlook.com from being displayed above the descriptions of the IDs it would look more refined.
i want my own photo or icon so people can identify it’s me, there are several people with the same name as me and i wish to receive my emails and documents correctly and nobody else to

There was a feature which showed the corresponding e-mail account on each entry on the left panel side, when switching between the accounts, as it is right now only the name of the account owner is showed, but no information which account is currently selected, please fix this issue, as right we should extra go to settings and enter the account to see which one exactly is it apart, from the name associated with it.
Please add this feature! It’s frustrating to not easily distinguish between accounts.
Go to Settings, select the email you want to change the initials for, and change the description. I did two words and it automatically changed the initials for the Icon to being the first letter of each word I wrote in for the description. I don't see any option for changing the color
Allow the user to change the appearance of account icons. By default, outlook assigns the same letter and color for both my accounts and I am unable to change them.
Easier to separate the different mails from each other!

Some accounts begin with the same name so it’s not easy to differentiate can we have at least four characters displayed so we know which account is which

I have multiple Gmail accounts, at least 2 start with the letter 'J'. Being able to assign either an icon, picture or at least more than 1 character to the current identifier would allow easier identification of each.
If you have more than one gmail, can we have a work, home, school icon (or similar) or even color coding to differentiate between accounts in inbox
It would be great if we could add custom logos for each email account. That would make it far easier to filter which email account we are looking at.

When you expand the list of accounts, only common services such as outlook.com have an icon, the rest just have the first letter of the name of the service. Add an option to select an icon from the photo library so it's easier to distinguish which account is which.
To rename your account
To be able to select the logo / icon for each email account to make it more user friendly
Pls, custom icons for all outlook app accounts.

It would be cool to change the icons for individual email mailboxes.
I have multiple accounts and would be great to able to distinguish between 2 Gmail accounts or 2 outlook accounts through different artwork/colors/etc.
