  1. Moving backgrounds

    Could you make more moving backgrounds? It would be more exiting.
    Also could you make them for ipads? That would be great too.

  2. New Outlook view: Entry field within 'Open another mailbox' modal has no border

    The 'Open another mailbox' modal in new Outlook displays the entry/select field for mailboxes without a border. Old/not-new Outlook displays this with a border.

    Without a border it is not obvious to users that the field is still there as it otherwise appears invisible until active. From a usability point of view this is a backwards step. Please restore the border or add another means of making the field clearly identifiable.

  3. LEAVE IT ALONE FOR 18 MINUTES...A PAUSE IN THE BABBLE OF CONSTANT CHANGE

    Here's an idea...stop taking away features that we DO value (e.g.: custom startup pages) and stop adding features that we DON'T value (e.g.: idiot warnings about forwarding with NO disable)...What twisted process of dark-magic "reasoning" could have led us to where we are with O365?

    Every time I think that MS has busted the meter on wrecking O365, your wise and thoughtful team comes up with something that I hate even more. Well played...

    Ever consider just leaving it alone and unmolested for, oh, I don't know, 18 minutes and seeing what feedback you get? I 'spect that the calm…

  4. Needs Night Mode/Too Bright

    Office Outlook is way to bright. Please do not make the whole interface bright white. It is very inconvenient to just look at email. Add a night feature to where it dims the screen to a grey or a light black. something that is not so intense on the eyes.

  6. Recipient should have the option to change the display name of the sender of the email

    Normally, the sender has the option to change their display name. However, recipients should also have the option to change the display name of the sender of the email in Inbox.

  8. Recipient has "seen email" and "typing back" feature

    I strongly believe that it would be very beneficial to have a feature when sending emails that shows you that the recipient has seen the email (clicked on it?). Another feature could be that the recipient is typing back to you.
    Thank you for listening to my ideas.

  9. Chat Option

    I was looking & saw that there is no Instant Chat option. Meaning if you want to chat quickly to a fellow Contact, there is now way of doing it but to send a email or use Skype. Please think about adding a chat option.

  10. Feedback

    I can't sort by column headers, my custom "quick steps" are not available; there is an overall lack of customization flexibility. Also, my custom categories are not there in the Tasks area, which I use for grouping. Overall, it is VERY frustrating & I have wasted a good portion of my day with this!

  11. Booking customize booking confirmation booking e-mail

    An option for bookings that allows for the customization of the automatic confirmation e-mail that is sent to the customer requesting a booking. Rather than confirmation of the booking, I would rather reply that their REQUEST has been received and will be confirmed shortly (or something like that).

  14. Stop forcing unnecessary add-ons onto users.

    Stop cluttering up the screen with additional toolbars or other large, space-consuming, unnecessary items. Stop creating such without telling users they are coming. Latest absurdity: The sudden appearance of a bar above messages with "Bing Maps" & "Action Items," both of which could have easily been put into one of the existing, already too-fat toolbars or elsewhere.

  15. 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.

  17. Why is Outlook unable to check all related registration on app or website by using Outlook email?

    Why is Outlook unable to check all related registrations on app or website by using Outlook email? The replies from customer service and the technician really disappointed me a lot in terms of such basic and necessary function. Please learn the humanized design from our China IT giant NetEase. Users can easily click the 'Zhang Hao Tong'( 帐号通) to review all platforms that were registered by using NetEase email address, and decide which one to be kept or eliminated whenever they want.

  19. Business Formating of all features.

    a few frills / no flash / no distraction version of outlook.
    this version now is too showy, too slow and incorporates ideals and functionality that is better suite to social communication rather than business communication.
