  1. Please match the outlook app font with my desktop outlook font.

    Please match the outlook app font with my desktop outlook font. The differences in styles can look very unprofessional when responding.

  2. Bring back the Outlook calendar app synchronisation to, at least, 3 months of past events

    Only 1 or 2 months of past events is not enough on the app to display. If this new limitation is due to space saving, at least let the user choose how many months of past events they want on their mobile device (especially the iPad) . Let us choose if we want 1,3,6,9 or 12 months of past events displaying on our mobile device. The fact that we only have 1 month of past events is causing user experience unsatisfaction in our company, especially for our executives. Thank you for considering this new suggestion seriously.

  5. Show the date when scrolling down emails

    When scrolling back/down through emails in side panel it is unclear what the date is. Just showing the day of a the week is not helpful.

  8. Confirm folder name when moving an email to a folder.

    To be sure that an email was moved to the correct folder it would be good if the folder name would be shown while copying the mail.
    Maybe the app could even suggest folders like the mail function of iOS does.

  10. Do not disturb

    Be able to set times to not receive email notifications. I have a boss who works in the middle of the night and sends emails. My phone is set to do not disturb so I do not hear alerts but I see the banner preview of the message and it makes me look at them and then I cannot sleep.

  14. Add to rules in app

    I auto filter certain emails recipients to folders through rules to streamline my inbox, so it would be great if thru the app you can update rules. I often want to add or update a rule which it seems you can’t do.

  17. Categories on iOS

    I use at least 13 different categories for my super-complicated schedule, and since the iOS app clips text on calendar events I rely on categories to quickly know which type of event I’m looking at. As it is now, I have to tap on each event to see what it’s about. On the Mac Outlook app, categories work great, and my admin puts in time making sure events are categorized properly. However, I’m usually not in front of my laptop, and so would greatly benefit from seeing categories on the iOS app and the Watch app.

  18. Ability to have all messages in threads collapse

    The newest update shows all messages in a thread as open. I would like the option to collapse all expect he most recent message so I can more easily jump back to previous messages. (The way it used to be)

  20. Reply All is default in new version. Default to reply, not reply all in add message

    The default in the replying to a message is Reply All. This default should be able to be changed, otherwise we are going to have a lot of people accidentally replying all to mass emails / the entire org when they only meant to respond to the original sender.
