  1. Checklists within tasks (subtasks)

    Adding checklists to tasks so one topic can contain multiple tasks which can be checked as completed individually. Also the percentage of completion of each task can be derived from this.

  2. Outlook Meeting Update

    If you update a meeting (e.g. change room, add notes) in Outlook365 for Windows a mail goes to the invited persons starting with "Cancelled" (in German "Abgesagt"). This is quite confusing. The calender is correct; the meeting is updated with valid information.
    BUT: Why can´t the e-mail start with "Updated", which would be correct???

    If necessary I will send screenshots to illustrate this very unpleasant situation which is contionously causing trouble.

    Thanks for your attention to this matter.

  3. Sort your folders by name or other

    Please make it so I can alphabetize my folders or reorder them as I like. It is frustrating that the newest added is at the bottom of the list. An organize your folder or even a way to sort seems so basic and I have no idea why me and MANY others have google searched this only to find no fix after many years.

    HELP?

  6. The Old Outlook was a lot better. It gives me more room to move and see messages. The outlook style is a nightmare.

    Recommend returning to old layout.
    Development should be of a benefit not harmful

  7. The hierarchical address book (HAB) with OWA.

    I would like to use The hierarchical address book (HAB) with OWA.
    As HAB can be used in Outlook but can not be used in OWA, OWA's usage rate has fallen and is in trouble.

  8. First Name Last Name not Last Name, First Names Search Results

    Sort Outlook To search as First Name Last Name and not the Last Name, First Name method. 99% of the time you know just the person's first name and not their last name in a large company! Last Name first is one of the most useless features, you never say "Hi Smith, Bob" you always say "Hi Bob"!

  10. You should continue to allow online users to continue to have classic outlook as an option.

    My organizations SKYPE search is gone. It runs slow. Just plain bad.

    Not sure who thought this was an upgrade.

  11. Attachment Reminder

    With GMAIL, if your email says "I have attached..." a window will pop-up prior to sending reminding you to attach the item. It is extremely useful. I can't count how many important emails I have failed to include an attachment on because your program doesn't remind me.

  12. Quicksteps

    Please can you include Quicksteps in Office 365 the same as the desktop Microsoft Outlook? Quicksteps save massive amounts of time and are essential to how I use Outlook.

  13. Sync Sharepoint Tasks

    It would be useful if I could sync my SharePoint task lists with my Outlook 365 tasks (and then with To-Do as that already syncs with Outlook 365 tasks). However, it seems SharePoint tasks will only sync to my Outlook Desktop app, when I click on "Connect to Outlook". I'd like to have my SharePoint task lists synced with my 365 Outlook tasks, just as they do with the Outlook Desktop app.

  14. Preview Button

    I would like to see a way to preview the automatic reply email. I 'hope' it looks okay. I can reset the time and send an email to myself from another box, etc... but it would nice to just click 'preview'.

    The same with the signature.

  20. I absolutely DO NOT like the new Outlook.com Interface. In fact, I contacted CS & gotta link to the old one. New sucks, old good

    I don't know what was wrong with old interface and why they had to update Outlook to this new interface. I absolutely do not like this new one at all. If ya can't tell yet...
