    • More Themes and allow customization

      I would say more themes might be a good idea. I like the red paint one, but it gets old after a while. I like more customization.

      • Unread/read mails not easy to distinguish

        It's hard to distinguish between the read and unread mails in my inbox. Using a different background color or perhaps using an icon like a colored dot on the unread emails would be helpful to clearly identify the unread emails. Right now only the subject of the unread emails appears in blue which is easy to confuse with the rest of the theme and doesn't stand out. Thanks for taking this feedback. Have a great time :)

          Thanks for the feedback and for using Outlook on the web!
          In order to make your message list appear less cluttered, try changing the following settings. Click on the gear in the top right hand corner, and turn off Attachment Previews, Sender Photos, and Message Preview text. Hope that helps!

        • Notifications for new emails on tab or pop-up

          When the browser is minimized and receive messages.
          My idea is to have a small pop-up notification so that users will easily notify to it. If it possible. That's all. Thank you. Have a nice day.

            Thank you for your feedback! We will support this feature in the new version of Outlook on the web. Look out for a prompt to try the new version in the coming months, and you will be able to find this feature under “browser notifications” in your settings panel.

          • sort e-mail by category

            I'd like to be able to sort e-mail messages by category. I have rules set up to automatically categorize messages based on a project number. In my outlook.office365.com (web version) I can see the categories for messages, but category is not an option in the "All" pull down sort filter. Being able to sort e-mail by category would be very beneficial to me and would allow me to work just like I do in the desktop Outlook client...

            Thank you!

              • Sorting Tasks

                In Outlook on Windows (2007 and 2016 and I believe also 2010, 2013 but I am less familiar with those versions), you are able to sort tasks by Reminder Time.

                However on the Web version of Office 365 (and also Mac 2011/16) this does not appear to be possible.

                I user the reminder time to assist doing the tasks in the order I have set them out and getting a view of what is next and what is coming up for rest of day, tomorrow / next week etc.

                The start / completion date sorting are no good for this…

                • Allow users of Outlook Web Access (OWA) to set customer reminders for calendar

                  I am a user of Outlook on Windows for 15 years, on MacOS for 5 years and on Office 365 OWA for 18 months.

                  There is a feature for calendar reminders on Windows which is not available on OWA or Mac version and I would like to request it be introduced in a future upgrade (sooner the better). Please note I have submitted the same request albeit reworded for MAC on the Outlook Mac suggestion list.

                  I have tested this functionality and confirmed it is available on Windows Outlook 2007-2010-2013-2016 but it is not available on Office for Mac either…

                  • Multiple Email Signatures

                    Can there be a way to have multiple different signatures that I can pick for my emails? I use this one for school, work, and my internship and I don't want to have to create a new signature for each type of email each time i make a new one!

                        IDEA: The ability to copy and paste an event on the web platform.

                        Currently, if I am on the web platform, if I want to duplicate an event on the calendar, I have to start from scratch every time.

                          • Search Folders!

                            Outlook desktop has SearchFolders. I use that in connection with Categories to organize my email. This is a more flexible approach since one email can be part of multiple categories and thereby show up in multiple search folders. (This emulates the Gmail labels)
                            The web version has no search folders. PLEASE bring them in. I can't really use it otherwise.

                              First, I want to thank everyone for using the product and sharing with us your feedback.

                              This is great feedback and we are discussing the need to provide the basic filtering function for Search. We will update once a decision is made.

                              In the mean time, I’d like to share a temporary solution to ease your pain. It’s a bit more technical so not everyone is going to be comfortable with it. I apologize for that in advance. You can add “isread:no” (without the quotes) after the search term (separate your search term and isread:no with a space) which will filter the search results to show only unread emails.

                              Thank you for helping us make Outlook.com better!

                                  In the Outlook Web App, in order to view the inbox of a shared mailbox you need to click on More in the folders and scroll down to it. This is putting some users off using the Web App as they would rather have it more easily accessible from their Favorites section.

                                        Dear Team,
                                        We should have an option of chat internally connected in the mail itself once the mail get's open. It shows that the particular person is in live , accessing the pc or away from system. It also give benefit if someone what to share the details personally instead of drafting the mails. Any body an ping the chat to a particular person. suppose I want to pass an message to my boss instead of calling thru extension or sending him an email. I can remind my boss thru chat itself rather than calling him in extension or drafting…

                                        • Delevery Reprot/Read Receipt for all sent emails.

                                          I would good to be able to track (read receipt/delivery report) as a standard for all message rather than having to do it for individual emails.
