  1. 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

  2. Using the Outlook web app in http://outlook.office365.com, please enable the option to display the COLUMNS heading

    Using the Outlook web app in http://outlook.office365.com, please enable the option to display the COLUMNS heading. When dealing with hundreds of email responses, being able to order by subject line is necessary. Not having this feature is foolish, It works in the Outlook client - why not in the OWA?

  4. Add ability to pin My Day (calendar agenda view) as right pane

    I'd love to be able to pin the My Day/calendar agenda view to the right side when reading my mail, like in the desktop Outlook, so that it's open by default and I don't have to click the button every time I change views (e.g. navigate to To Do, then back to mail).

  5. "Reply All By Meeting" action to include email attachments

    Add ability to include attachments found on the email that evokes this action. It is highly realistic that users will want to discuss documents when they "reply all by meeting". For now, users have to download the attachments from the previous email and then manually add them to the meeting they just created.

  6. Outlook OWA folders of archived sent mail should show recipient name not sender

    I may not quite be using the right terminology, but in Office 365 OWA, I keep folders/subfolders of archived sent mail. When viewing mail in those folders, OWA displays the sender name (me) instead of the recipient name. This is not useful; I already know I'm the sender. Need option or workaround so that sent emails in folders (besides the standard Sent Mail folder) are displayed with the recipient name instead of (or in addition to) the sender name. Thank you.

  7. 'Sent' folder filter options needs to add 'To' and 'Subject' options

    We have users using only Outlook on the web . Missing filter options 'to' and 'Subject' from Send folder is very critical for us. Can you please add it like ut is in every other folder
    Thanks

  11. new meeting teams

    Please add the 'Teams' toggle switch to the short quick menu for creating a meeting (when you click in an empty spot on your calendar). Currently to make the meeting a Teams meeting we have to click 'More Options' to get this option and to toggle that switch.
    Moving it to the condensed menu would make things easier.

    Because people don't see the option as they create the meeting using the short view they often forget to add the necessary Teams details to the meeting invite (which is especially annoying for remote working during Covid-19)

  12. format phone numbers

    Can you have Outlook on the Web format telephone numbers after they're entered just like the outlook client, i.e. reformat 18005551212 to the +1 (800) 555-1212, or the national equivalent's like +442012341234 to +44 (20) 1234 1234? They all look different based on where the phone number came from.

  13. Customize the message body of Delegate approval mail

    The delegate approval mail will be forwarded with the following message body:
    “This out-of-policy resource request was forwarded to you for your approval.”
    But we would like to customize the sentence to our preference.

  14. Permanently collapse Calendar side panes

    In month view when I when I collapse the right agenda pane, I want it to stay collapsed until I change it even after a restart. Or provide a setting that allows me to choose the default for the pane as collapsed. Similar for the left calendar pane would be nice too.

  15. agenda pane

    In the new Outlook: When the Calendar app is opened up, the agenda pane does not populate info from "People's Calendars" unless those calendars are unchecked and then re-checked. That info needs to be populated automatically when the Calendar app opens -- otherwise, users who rely on the agenda pane for viewing the day's events will miss events shared by other people's calendars.

  16. Ability to snooze SENT emails for better follow-up

    Gmail and Outlook allow a user to snooze emails that reach their inbox. However, Gmail also allows me to SEND a new email and then go into my sent mail and snooze it so I can follow up if the recipient doesn't respond.

    I would like for Outlook to add the ability to snooze emails from out sent mail box so I can completely manage my workflow and follow up from OWA.

  18. Feature related

    Please make sure if you introduce ANY NEW features that you DO NOT introduce them to be automatically set by default to on.
    Please also NOTIFY US by email on every new feature that you introduce.
    I am mentioning the above as the link preview was set by default to on and must have been introduced after October 2019 and unfortunately I have sent out emails that show a link preview that reads and looks like an ad but I did not know this when composing and only discovered it after looking at my sent emails. Paid accounts should not…
