    • Reply/Reply All

      I think it would be helpful if the user could edit the order or Reply All/Reply/Edit Recipients to customize their preferences. Ad an alternative, make Reply the first option.

      • Groups shared calendars

        I need to be able to see the shared calendars of each of the Groups that I am a member/owner of. The Groups app is no longer available for many in our organization.

        • Add the ability to color code events in the calendar

          Google calendar allows you to make different events different colors. It’s VERY useful and you should add this feature. They give the option of about 10-12 difficult color options. PLEASE PLEASE add this!!

          • 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.

            • 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.

                • Email Formatting with Font

                  Allow us to change the Font when formatting an email. The standard font is terrible and very difficult to read.

                  Also, allow for us to pick a default font.

                  • 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.

                      • Shared calendar for Office 365 users.

                        Our organization uses OWA because it has the shared calendars of the agency.
                        Can you please add this feature as it works in the O365 system ?
                        Thanks

                            Please add the option to add files from iCloud Drive, currently Dropbox, Google Drive and recent attachments are there but not iCloud which is frustrating.

                            • 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.

                                  • Rules-please add the ability to create rules in the mobile app.

                                    It is quite annoying that we can’t create rules in the mobile app. We need at a minimum the ability to create notification rules. This ability would be even greater if these rules also had the option to bypass the silent mode like alarms do and customize vibration patterns.

                                      I am a big fan of OWA for IOS. I’m sorry to see an end of Life announced for OWA.

                                      OWA’s calendar respects the event colors that are in the PC version of outlook. I find this very useful and that is why I prefer OWA for IOS vs Outlook for IOS.

                                      Will Outlook for IOS be enhanced to respect the calendar event colors from PC Outlook?

                                      Thanks in advance,

                                      Chris Keller

                                          Very unintuitive. I’ll write more later.
