  1. @ tag someone and be able to delete part of the name

    My organisation used surname,firstname in Active Directory. As such when I take someone on the iOS app, I just get the surname. Unlike on desktop I cannot delete part of the name to just show the first name as it is never displayed. Just keep the desktop functionality!

  4. Option to resize photo attachments

    When attaching photos from your camera roll, outlook app will give you the option to resize the photo before sending.

    This could reduce the physical dimensions of the image as well as the file size.

    The native iOS email app already does this.

  8. View Group Membership

    Hi,

    I would like to have the ability to have an option to see the membership of a group when I view the details of a group in the directory search results.

    Thanks,

  9. Confirm send from address

    When multiple accounts are added to your app, it is quite easy to miss confirming the send from address is correct.

    Would like to see a way to either confirm or call it out in a greater visual manner so you don't accidentally send from the wrong account (e.g. Work vs Personal)

  10. Spam folder: specific swipe options

    Currently, if the user's swipe gesture is set to "Archive," the swipe option in the Spam or Junk folder is also "Archive". It would make more sense to have dedicated "Trash" and "Not Spam" swipe options just for the Spam folder.

  11. Sending mails with IRM (information rights management) enabled

    I would like to request for the Outlook App to be able to set IRM controls (do not forward, confidential etc) on mails which are composed and sent from the app. Right now only the ability to read and respond to IRM protected mails is available.

    Thanks

  12. Turn off automatic add invitees to created calendar entries

    Now when a user adds a calendar entry from an email the calendar entry automatically adds others on the email chain as invitees. I'd like the option to turn that off so I don't accidentally spam friends/colleagues with calendar entries when the entry was only meant to be a reminder for me.

  15. Advanced OOO Assistant

    There is an interesting app for OOO Assistant on Windows named iO3: Automatic replies.
    When you set OOO message, it pulls all meetings and appointments. It will then decline/cancel the items with OOO message as a note for the reason. It will also create reminders for missed meetings/appointments so you can reschedule when back to work.

    It is an interesting concept and does it for all configured accounts at one go as helps manage work better.

    However it is available on Windows 8 and 10 only.

  17. Auto Accept

    How about porting the desktop Outlook feature of auto Accept/decline based on availability? It used to be my automated assistant in slotting in all my appoints and avoiding double booking.

  20. Right hand sidebar for left handed people

    Allow the sidebar to be positioned to the right. Left handed people can knock it accidentally.
