  1. Make the Joyful animation feature work in languages other than English

    Currently the joyful animation experience only works when an email containing English text arrives. Please make this work for users worldwide who do not write English.

  3. Customize due dates

    We can mark our emails with a flag to raise attention for a task we have to do. There are standard time frames within which we must do them, but I can't add a custom due date. I just got an email today that I need to do something within two weeks (by Feb. 22), but given the limited options, I can't set 2/22 as the due date. Only today, tomorrow, or next week. We should have the option to flag for completion by whatever date each task is due, rather than be restricted to standard options like today, tomorrow,…

  7. Usability improvements

    -How about putting the headers on the email list so I can easily sort by them?
    -How about providing a better search mechanism instead of having just one search box that mixes search results? Search is also not very smart, in couldnt distinguish between search context.
    -Eliminate grouping by conversation or provide option to turn it off.. It just doesnt work!

  8. Make the "Outlook Client" feature the same as the "Outlook on the web" feature.

    ”Outlook Client”の機能と”Outlook on the web”の機能を同じにしてほしい。

    例)
    ”Outlook on the web”で共有メールボックスを閲覧した場合と、直下に配置したファイルを参照することが出来ない。
    しかし、”Outlook Client”では参照が可能です。

    この要望はお客様の声に基づいています。

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Make the "Outlook Client" feature the same as the "Outlook on the web" feature.

    Ex)
    If you browse the shared mailbox with "Outlook on the web" and you can not browse the file placed directly below.
    However, it is possible to browse in "Outlook Client".

    This request is based on customer's voice.

  9. Posibility to add shared inboxes to favorites

    Using Office 365 webmail, it should urgently be made possible to display "shared accounts inbox" in favorites. The webmail functionality is almost not useable for us until that is possible.

    We have 5 shared inboxes. Using webmail, we have to open each individual shared inbox to investigate if any new mails has arrived.

    Using Outlook, we add the inboxes to favorites. That way its possible to register new mails just by sweeping the program.

  11. Encoding method in the attachment file

    Sometimes characters are corrupted in the file attached on an email message for the recipient side. I understand that we can change the encoding method for the email message body itself by changing ”ByteEncoderTypeFor7BitCharsets” value, however there is no way to modify the encoding method on the attachment. I would like you to provide a way for admin can change encoding method in the attachment file.

  13. I would like to hide recommended groups of office365 group in Outlook on the web

    When you click the search of Office 365 group, the recommended group is displayed but I want to hide it.
    It is embarrassing because private groups unrelated to recommended groups are also displayed.

  14. Do Not Drop Connected Accounts!

    Called support due to slowness in downloading email from a connected account. We were told that Office 365 Business Accounts is removing this ability. I was totally blown out of the water that this functionality is being removed. We have fought hard as a K-12 to stick with MS O365 and Outlook over Google, but seeing that Google has this ability may sway our focus on using Outlook.

    Please reconsider not pulling this option as I know there is a large user base that relies on this ability.

  16. Add custom category colors

    Ability to add custom colors (via hex#, RGB, CMYK, etc.) for categories.

    It would be very beneficial for me when planning out my week using the calendar. There are 10 colors of various pastels (top two rows), a row of 5 greys, and 10 colors of various jewel-tones (bottom two rows) to choose from. I've got 20+ different projects I'd like to be able to plan ahead for and also be able to see clearly when glancing at my calendar. Would be tremendous help with planning and project management, as well as being able to quickly re-prioritize.

  18. Direct URLs and FAVICONs for Calendar and People apps

    Better multi-tab/web-page UX.
    - Enable URLs for direct access to Calendar, People (e.g. "calendar.office.com", "people.office.com" respectively)
    - Enable FAVICON that reflects the app open in that webpage (e.g specifically with those two apps it just slows the same outlook icon instead of the calendar or people icons)

  20. WebEx and Office 365

    On the Desktop version of Outlook, I had the Cisco WebEx Productivity Toolkit that made it easy to create an Outlook Calendar meeting/invite and then add my WebEx meeting to the invite. This created the meeting in WebEx for me and added all the WebEx info to the meeting invite. Is there way to have that in the Office 365?
