  1. Recall/Change sent (mail/group) email

    I sent a mass email not knowing my default was set to reply all and it had very personal information on it. It was sent to 50 people and there was no way I could change it... Please make something so I can delete this message! It's pertinent information for the faculty only, not all the students.

  2. Display the Same Features of Office Outlook the Same Everywhere

    Offer online users of office outlook the same exact interface as outlook 365 and vise versa. I am not able to complete the same tasks using the office 365 when working from home as I can at work. This is presents a ton of challenges using the web version of office outlook.

    Thanks for your feedback about Outlook on the web! We’re trying to give our web users the best experience possible to complete their tasks. Sometimes we need to make concessions in order to make our app run quickly and effectively on the web, but we’re always trying to add features that you love. Could you tell us a little more about which features you miss most while using Outlook on the web?

  3. Mailbox Delegation

    We need to be able to access another employees mailbox to manage their emails when they are out on PTO or sick. There is not mailbox delegation feature that is easily accessible.

  5. Ability to Search Group Calendars in web app and phone app

    Our organisation uses the group function to have a workplace calendar that we can all access. However, the search function that used to be available for group calendars disappeared with the last update. This means we have to go through each week until we find the event we are looking for. Please bring this feature back! It's a basic search function- I'm not sure why it was removed in the first place!

  8. Automatic salutations with name recognition

    I would like to have a feature that pre-inserts simple salutations in an email reply. If the salutation in an email begins with "Dear Mr. XYZ" and Ends with "Sincerly Mr. ABC" lets outlook insert automatically an "Dear Mr. ABC" at the start when I click on "Reply". When it starts with "Hi XYZ" choose "Hi ABC".

    That would, especially on mobile devices save a lot of time tiping (and making mistakes). Of course with support for multiple languages like german (Hallo, Guten Tag, Moin, ... etc.)

  9. Maximum numbers of slots available

    I use Bookings as a way to recruit people to participate in surveys. I require only a certain amount of people for every survey. Can you add a functionality so I there will be no slots left if the amount of required participants have booked already?
    For example, in Services, I would set that this particular Service have only 30 slots to be booked. The moment there will be 30 meetings booked, no new participants will be able to book before I adjust the maximum slots available.
    It woule be best if the number of slots would go down with…

  10. Add a feature that can set the time limit of usage for Outlook on the web.

    Add a feature that can set the time limit of usage for Outlook on the web. For example, you can set that user can use Ootw only from 9 AM to 6 PM. And it is not available other time.

  12. "My day" tab and upcoming event widget shows all selected calendars

    If you have selected other calendars to view in the Calendar, the events from these calendars also show in the "next event" (top right above email). They also show in the fly out for "My Day".

    These views should show MY calendar, not the calendar's I've selected to view along side mine. Or at least have an option to not include the other calendars in "My Day" and the "Next Event" widget

  14. excel binary

    Outlook on web can not preview Excel Binary .xlsb format files. It just sits there saying "Calculating" and never previews the file.

  16. Please add a toggle to go back to previous schedule assistant.

    I cannot understand why you would change the scheduling assistant to the difficult to use version in the latest update. Attendees across the top with wider view of each calendar was superior. Please add a toggle to go back to previous schedule assistant.

  18. List all messages in Outlook on the web

    It would be great if we have a feature to list all messages in a single list. I think it’s more convenient rather than searching messages.

  20. Ability to send on behalf of hidden mailbox

    The ability to send on behalf of a hidden generic mailbox would be useful through the Outlook desktop client. It currently results in a confusing message saying that the user does not have permission to send from this mailbox. It does work through Outlook on the web with exactly the same permissions set.

    Generic accounts that may be advertised externally or only used by one or two people in a large organisation should be able to be hidden without it affecting the use of the mailbox.
