  1. Default Search Option for Contacts

    When I search my contacts I would like the option of setting default preferences to ONLY search my contacts. If I want to have it search a company directory that should be an option, but not default. 99% of the time I'm looking in MY address book, not the company one so that overloads my results with things I don't need. I should haven't ASK Outlook to not show me things.

  2. Junk Filters

    I forward email to another account. Is there a way to filter spam and junk mail in this account before it is forwarded?

  3. Adding Events Directly into Office 365 Outlook Web App

    Please allow calendar events to be added to the Office 365 Outlook.

    Right Now if I want to add an event it wants to open Outlook from the computer. I have instructed users not to use Outlook from the computer but from the web portal. When they try to add an event to their calendar Outlook tries opening and asks them to setup their Outlook account.

    Thanks for listening! I love O365!

  4. When sending off an email, an option in the category column to add a follow up date would be great

    It would be great if there was a option, similar to what was available in Lotus notes, that allowed me to set up a reminder when sending out emails that require responses in a certain time frame.

  5. Allow Sending of unlimited Auto Replies to External Email Recipients instead of once

    For those of us that use Outlook in Office 365 as a mailbox for inquiries, suggestions, support, etc., it would be helpful to allow Auto Replies to be sent as often as an external sender submits a message as the auto reply messages change on an ongoing basis. The present option is to send an auto reply to an external sender only once.

  6. Flagged items and Condensed view

    Urgently need a Flagged item folder. Where I can review all the items I flagged (priority).

    Also urgently need an option to condense the Text, to look more like the Lite version, so I can see maybe 20 emails per page instead of the 7.5 I can see now.

  10. Attach Note/Memo to e-mails

    Have the ability to attach a note or memo to an e-mail (inbox and sent views).
    This would be VERY helpful in group inboxes, where more than 1 person monitors the messages. The ability to "note" a message to keep others "in the know" of what actions have been/need to be done. (Office 365 Outlook - Web Version)

  11. Web Notifications via Edge to Action Center

    Since edge web notifications are a thing now in the latest build of Windows 10, it would be nice to have those notifications pass on to my action center from Outlook in O365. Similar to the way that web.skype.com or web.groupme.com handles it.

    This way I don't have to constantly check the tab, but rather see a notification/toast in the action center.

    I am trying to see if I can use the outlook web app as daily driver instead of the Outlook 2016 application for all my business needs.

  12. Type to Select Folder for Move

    In order to move emails to a folder, use a box so you can type the name of the folder to pull up. It takes way too long to select move to another folder, then scroll down and expand parent folders - I end up deleting messages because it is easier than saving them.

  13. Provide an FAQ on how to set up an Outlook Desktop App account

    Provide an FAQ on how to set up an Outlook Desktop App account

    I wanted to move away from outlook.com and set up my Office Outlook App. An FAQ on the process would have been very useful.

  14. We use Google Business Apps at work. Wish there was support for that in Office.

    Having the ability to sync my business calendar, contacts, and more with Office would greatly simplify my world. It seems nuts, that with the widespread use of Google Apps, this support isn't built in.

  15. Feedback to Forms should be viewable using Excel Online

    "Forms" is too primitive compared with Google Forms. I want to be able to view Form feedback as Excel Online (instead of Excel) and to write functions to auto-transform the feedback data using Excel Online.

  16. Preview display txt files

    Preview of file-attachments works for Office docs, PDFs, JPGs etc. It doesn't work for plain text files. Please add that feature. Office Online in SharePoint supports it so it should be an easy addition.

    I get lots of emails with .txt files attached from various automated services and currently I have to download each file to view it even when I just want to glance at the file content.

  17. Tagging for files in OneDrive

    Add support for tagging files in OneDrive. This would aid in searching for files shared with you as folders are less practical in the new model of sharing from personal OneDrive as opposed to group folders. Could have colors for tags like OS X does in Finder or like categories in Outlook mail 2010 client.

  20. An automated email response when you ask a question.

    It would be good to be able to ask a yes/no or option question in an email, so that an automated response is generated rather than recipients having to type a response. It's a good way to RSVP attendance or give an option.
