  1. New Outlook: Email and Calendar in same window.

    In "The New Outlook" you have to fix it, or at least provide the option to, open the calendar in the same window/tab as email. If I'm in Outlook Email and click on the calendar it opens in a new tab.
    Please fix or add option, until then I can't make the switch. I know other users in our company feel the same way.
    Thanks

  2. suggestion

    when clicking on the app button on the top left corner (desktop version)
    and opening apps, they open on the same window, maybe when clicking and opening a new app from the app window such as teams, it would be better that it would open in a new tab automatically without right clicking and selecting open in new tab

  3. Tray notifications for Office365 events

    The only thing preventing me from moving away from the desktop app (Outlook) is the web version's inability to reliably notify about events such as new e-mail and a meeting starting. A browser app just can't do that.

    If there was a lightweight desktop application sitting in the tray and popping up notifications I'd move immediately. Until then there is not much use in Office365 for me.

  4. Message alert with ringtone when someone pings on skype chat

    Hello Team,

    Idea: Message alert with ringtone whenever someone pings on skype chat.

    It will enable us to check skype pings and respond immediately without any delay.

    Thanks & Regards

  5. Improve the behavior of Outlook on the web with the new UI

    Currently, we are facing a problem that new UI of Outlook on the web reloads periodically when switching the screen to the Calendar page. We would like you to improve this problematic behavior as soon as possible. Creating Teams meetings has to be done in the new UI, but we hesitate to switch to the new UI.

  6. Copy Paste Attendees

    I need to be able to copy and paste attendees from meetings. Why on Earth have you removed this functionality?

  9. ditch the yellow print and return to black

    Please allow people the choice of not using your pastel colored print. It is very stressful to the eye to try to figure out the letters . I have written this request several times and you are still using the pastel colored letters. You cannot automatically assume that your choices will work for everyone else.

  11. Importance checker

    My idea is that Outlook suggests the importance level of an email by analysing the text.

  14. Bring back the Mobile Devices options in the 'new Outlook' online.

    Bring back the Mobile Devices options in the 'new Outlook' online. Users need a way to manage ActiveSync connections for their iPhone and iPad.

    The Mobile devices page is supposed to be available at Settings > View all Outlook settings > General > Mobile devices according to this MS article: Mobile devices options on Outlook.com <https://support.office.com/en-us/article/mobile-devices-options-on-outlook-com-6777abf4-0430-4392-bea0-9c169d85b14d>

    A Mobile devices page is still available in the old Outlook online. Switching back to the old Outlook online isn't hard, but shouldn't be necessary.

  15. Outlook autosave

    Optimize, change and make the autosave more practical by outlook. (new version) There is no need for additional pop-up window !! It is more than enough, that not needed draft stays at draft folder, and I can delete it from there.,

  17. Zero secutiy

    I do not know that you have used Protonmail or not.
    Protonmail has several security features for example:
    1- shows open account and IPs. You can ask to log out from other left opened accounts.
    2- Also it shows all IPs and the time of login.
    3- Finally, Protonmail support twofactorauth-Software-Token.
    I do not consider outlook.office365.com as a secure mail because of lack of these features.

  18. Themes

    It would be extremely beneficial if there would be other themes available as well. As designers, my team an I are more than happy to help to submit alternative color themes based on official Vodafone Brand colors.

    Also, or alternatively: if the dark mode (that is already available to general outlook users) option would be enabled, it would really improve ergonomics, and significantly reduce the eye-strain that comes with the current white-and-red color scheme.

    Thanks!

  19. Use words, not icons. How do you change folder names?

    Instead of employing meaningless icons, please use words for each category along the top bar, along with scroll-down options.

    I was just trying to change the name of my folders. I still don't know how to do this, because I got no response when I searched for the answer.

  20. Working Hours for Nightshifters

    The working time doesnt allow me to set my actual hours, as I am a night shifter and dont get off work until early the next day. When I try to set the working hours it keeps telling me that my "Start time must be before the end time".
