  1. Handwritten notes

    I think it would be great if, after opening an email, you were able to finger write a note on top, anywhere on the email as in adding a new layer. Exiting would save the email with the new layer.
    Quite often, there is a bank charge or an order, and you save it to refer to later. Have a handful of them and you forget what belongs to what.
    Thanks.

  2. Gsync/Activesync for corporate Gmail doesn't work

    My company uses corporate G Suite, without IMAP. Activesync/gsync works perfectly for Android users, but when we add an account manually in Outlook (as Exchange), we get through the normal setup steps for Exchange/advanced, and just when it appears we are in the clear, we are are brought to the Gmail sign-in screen (which does not work without IMAP anyway). Please fix - a lot of us love Outlook and want it for our single mail client! Thanks :)

  4. Organization Hierarchy in People

    Like in PC outlook, we need to see organization tab for contacts so we would know both direct reports and reporting to.

    Thanks,

  11. Unread filter should not auto refresh

    Right now if I touch an unread item in unread view, then have a need to look at just another email, I lose that one from view because unread view immediately cleans them up. This scenario should match Outlook on desktop where, as long as I'm in that view, all items should still show even if I read them. This will bring the two consistent and help me be more productive on the phone.

  12. Improved iCloud Calendar Support

    Currently Outlook will only show iCloud calendars available on iCloud.com. It does not display subscribed calendars (such as work calendars, school calendars, etc), even if they are synced via iCloud to Macs, iOS devices, etc. The native iOS calendar app DOES show these calendars, as do other 3rd party calendar apps such as Fantastical. Please fix this.

  15. Attach files from other applications

    It would be extremely helpful to be able to attach files from other applications (at least other Microsoft apps) to an email. It is very inconvenient to have to transfer a spreadsheet or word document to Dropbox and then attach it to an email thread in order to save the integrity of the thread.

  16. Change archive folder

  18. Reply To settings

    Sometimes you buy a domain name and it comes with respective email address as per the domain name but did not have a real mailbox and it is not an email account. Just an email address. So you will arranged that all email sent to this email address will automatically forwarded to a real email account mailbox etc. This works fine except that when you reply the incoming emails it is shown as sent out from the real email address instead of the domain name email address. Outlook for desktop have a "reply to" feature settings to show that the…

  19. Smart inbox view like Spark

    In All inboxes' view sorting emails into their respective inboxes so 'work' emails could be clearly identified and splitting off 'newsletter' type emails to be read when time allows - rather than all emails being in one giant list.

    This helps prioritise when using Outlook for work, personal and joint email inboxes.

    Thanks

  20. Remove cancelled meetings in calendar

    Currently it does not seem possible to remove events that have been cancelled by the meeting host. The update arrives in the mailbox but does not have an option to delete from calendar.
