  1. Automatically mark as Unread when Scheduling (option)

    Scheduling is a great feature but unless you mark emails as unread before scheduling them they can sneak back in your inbox without you realising.

    My suggestion is to have a user option that if set would mark all emails as unread when scheduling them.

  2. Toggle back and forth between email and calendar functions.

    When developing an email if you have to check your calendar, you have to save a draft email, check your email, and then come back to find draft folder and retrieve email. It would be great if you could push a button and your icons would pop up, go to calendar, and return easily.

  5. Text expander

    I'd love a feature like the desktop software Breevy or the app textexpannder so that I could use the same benefits of my desktop to save time typing text from my email platform.

  7. Include mail from other folders in threads

    In the desktop version of outlook, when using threaded view, all emails that contributed to a specific subject are shown, regardless of the folder they reside (they are also shown in gray font with their actual folder besides them).

    This is very useful if one is to visit a thread from sometime ago that it's mails are stored in various folders. It improves on continuity and a total view on a subject.

    I would really love to get the same great feature in iOS, having this experience with the PC version.

  8. Remember my preferred calendar view state

    Every day I have to toggle my view to 3 day from 1. Please remember that state - it's a pain to set it all the time.

  11. Notification badges beside "Focused" and "Other" inboxes

    How about add notification badges beside "Focused" and specially beside "Other" with a sum of unread emails of all other accounts. When we open the app this will be an quickly way to see that are unread messages in Other inbox.

  12. Tabbed mailboxes

    Instead of "Focused" and "Other" appearing along the top of the email list, replace those words with tabs and the ability to add tabs from mail folders you've setup with rules for mail to automatically get moved. Currently the notification of these emails is sketchy at best, I've gone days without knowing there are messages sitting in one of the folders and you only find out if you touch the 3 lines to bring out the side menu. The tabs could indicated which folder have mail and it would be quicker and more visual way of navigating your folders.

  14. Name Icons Should be First Initial Last Initial

    Despite the naming convention policy of an enterprise or personal email provider, the name icons on each email should always display as "First Initial Last Initial."

  16. Get rid of the "managed by your company screen"

    I see the "managed by your company" screen every single time i switch apps on my iPhone to get to outlook.

    My feature request is to kill this screen and show it only when you start outlook after a phone restart.

  18. email inboxes and folders

    I get 100 + emails a day and have some sent directly to folders. Need to have a way to see which folders have emails by a number or making them bold when I search thru it.
