  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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!

  5. 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…

  6. 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…

  7. 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!

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

    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.

  10. 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!

  11. Please add an "unread messages" folder...

    I really miss having an "Unread Messages" folder. Is there any way to add this back?

  13. Shared mailbox in Favorites

    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.

  17. Chat Option

    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…

  18. Snooze email option for OWA 365 similar to mobile Outlook

    Please enable the "schedule" or "snooze" feature in OWA 365 that you currently enable in the mobile version of Outlook. It is frustrating to not have a basic feature online that you offer on the mobile version.
