  1. Reply all with attachments included in Outlook 2016

    In Microsoft Outlook 2016, when reply all to the email with attachments, the attachments are not available and we have to attach them manually. An option to reply all to the email with all the attachments included would be more productive in Microsoft Outlook 2016 as that option is not available as of now.

      • Provide a feature or option to assign colors to Calendars in Microsoft Outlook 2016

        This is not for the "categories" for color-coding each entry... those haven't really changed, and although I would love more color options, it works. BUT, I'm really sad that the new "Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2016" Outlook calendar color options have been severely reduced and honestly folks, these colors are sad. Get rid of pink. Forever. Or make it the 30th choice. So hard to look at. We need more than 9 options... I regularly have far more than 9 calendars open and need to be able to quickly differentiate. It is nice that you can now dedicate a specific…

            The Outlook team is working on this update. We will add support for adding and updating events on family calendars as part of an overall improvement to shared calendars in Outlook.

            We will post a subsequent status update when the shared calendar improvements are available for you to use in Outlook. Our current ETA is to begin releasing to subscription customers who are using Outlook 2016 this summer (July 2018).

            • Email Signature Sync across devices

              It would be great if Outlook sync'd your email signature across multiple devices so that you only have to set or update it once.

                • Highligth each months in different colors to seperate months in Outlook 2016

                  It would be great if separate months are highlighted in different colors, so that the months could be easily distinguished.

                      • Bug: search box doesn't search for what I type

                        Bug: When I begin typing a search term in the "Search Current Mailbox" input box, a dropdown box appears listing recent searches. Whatever, I don't intend to click on any of those. I finish typing my search term and hit "Enter" - outlook does not search for what I typed. Instead, it searched for the term in the dropdown that happened to be under the cursor of my untouched mouse.

                            Previously when you added people to an existing event before the event update was sent out it would ask if you wanted to send it only to the people added or deleted from the event and that feature is now gone in Outlook 2016

                              • Provide an option to schedule Out of Office replies for multiple holidays / events in advance

                                Currently I can only schedule my out of office for one occasion. Allow an option to pre-schedule multiple occasions. For example On July 3rd, when I set it up for 4th of July, allow me to schedule it for the Labor Day, Columbus Day, Thanks Giving, Christmas, etc. That way I can set them up when I am not very busy. Also, provide an option to activate / deactivate them. We have 10 or so holidays, so allow a few more and provide 15+ schedule alternatives. Note: I think the common holidays should be default for everybody.

                                    • Full Outlook Contact Access From Email

                                      I want to be able to access a full contact record in Outlook from an open Outlook email like you could before Outlook 2013. Ideally I could click on a persons name in an email and a full contact record would open. Instead, starting in Outlook 2013 and in Office 365, a small contact card without full contact management features opens. Some may want it to work the new way, but some may want it to work the old way so there should be a setting on what happens when you click on an email address on the to: or…

                                      • Buffer Time in calendar of Outlook 2016

                                        Allow user to set up "buffer time" within appointments and meetings. For example, I have an hour long, out-of-office meeting at 4pm and it takes 20 minutes to get there. I'd like to block my calendar from 3:40pm - 5:20pm, but show clearly that the meeting is from 4-5pm.

                                        • "Clutter" inbox superior to new "Focused" and "Other" tabs at the top of inbox

                                          I found the "Clutter" inbox to be better than the new "Focused" and "Other" tabs, which are really distracting because they display new "junk mail" prominently at the top of my inbox.
