  1. Delay Delivery:Schedule Emails

    Please bring this option to mobile.

    I don’t like to message people out of office hours. Scheduling an email ahead of time is helpful and allows to respond/write something when the moment strikes.

  2. Keep position in email when switching apps

    I read a fair amount of email newsletters. The issue is that when I click a link in one of them (and thus go to my browser), and then return to Outlook to continue reading the newsletter, the position in the email is not retained. I.e. I am at the top of the email again. It would be super handy if the position in an open email was kept when switching between apps.

  3. Email directory

    The saved grouped email addresses I have on desktop version are not accessible - only system/corporate directory is.

  4. Attach multiple photos

    I have to go back and select each photo individually to emails. This takes a lot of time and looking through photos.

    I prefer how it was using the provided Mail APP via Apple Software where you can select multiple photos and then hit “attach” when sending an email.

  5. Play emails via audio, but don’t require microphone access

    I’d like to play my emails via audio, but when I try to activate this Outlook requests access to my microphone. Outlook doesn’t need access to my microphone to play emails. If it does, it shouldn’t

  8. Highlight embedded text

    Would be nice if embedded text could be selected and highlighted. Different highlighted colors would be even better.

  10. Please eliminate the drop down for CC and BCC.

    Please eliminate the drop down for CC and BCC. At least give an option for CC to be open by default instead of having to press the drop down arrow. I do a lot of copying in emails and it’s more of a hassle now.

  11. Replying to Email

    Add the standard feature to email allowing for the reply text to be at the top of the email that you are drafting, so the entire email thread is in chronological order. Just like it is when normally responding to email while on a laptop or desktop.

  12. Audio to work when leaving outlook iPhone app

    Hello the outlook app was just updated and a feature was taken awake. I own a Record Label. I have about 20 Associates. We use office 365 business.
    1. Please bring back the feature where we can listen to an audio file even if our iPhone is set to silent, with the new update now we have to put our iPhone in ring mode in order to listen to any audio files. This will start to wear out our slider on our iPhone. This is also crucial for people that due music or anything with audio for their business.

  14. Switching between school accounts

    As a student I have multiple accounts. It would really help that Outlook could make me do the switch between these without having to go through a big process of logging out, logging in, and still finding myself in the same account. It works on my iPhone most of the time but not in my Mac. It would be nice that we could have this easy switch feature between accounts. Similar to Gmail.

  15. Keyboard scrolling using the space bar

    It would be useful to scroll messages using the space bar which is a feature of other outlook software.

  17. Play My Email for non-US regions

    The Play My Email feature is limited to devices registered in the US-Region only which is a very myopic view point on Outlook app usage given how many global companies are leveraging O365.

    It would be a great win to expand this capability at least initially to devices leveraging English as the device language.

  18. A little more rich text formatting, please

    The product is progressing well, but it’s remarkable to me that there isn’t a little more rich text formatting capability like simple bulleted or numbered lists. That would give email composition some of the features of typical desktop applications, which would be helpful for those of us trying to use the iPad as a computer.

  19. Simplify Email Filing

    Filing of emails became harder in 365 over standard Outlook App. Use AI to recommend folders based on email addresses or subject and allow a toggle to last 10 most recently used. Both without ever leaving mail.

  20. Include the Categorize Feature in the mobile app.

    I use the colour coded categories to make sure I don’t miss orders. Please add this feature to the mobile app so that I can keep organised from my phone instead of having to go back and mark everything on my work computer at the end of the day.
