    • import iCS to calendar from attachment

      I receive .ICS appointments via email attachment for various things, including from within Microsoft for internal events. It would be great if I had the option to just open it to view details, and then in that detail view of the attach ics have the option to import it to my calendar.

      Right now if I double click it, it asks me if I want to open an internet calendar. No I definitely don't. I want to view the details locally as they're attached, and choose to copy the specific appointment occurrence/series to my own calendar.

      • Allow cloud/smart attachments function to be able to select more than one file at a time.

        When selecting cloud/smart attachments from SharePoint Online and even from On-premises SharePoint, the "Insert file" dialog box only allows you to select one file at a time. Please enable the ability to select multiple files. This function is already present when selecting files from OneDrive for Business or OneDrive.

        • Include "Shared with Me" under browse web locations

          In Outlook with Office 365, there are options to share links to files saved in OneDrive or SharePoint. However, if someone has shared a file with you from their own OneDrive, there is no option to send the link back to them even if you have permission to the file. By adding "Shared with Me" as a location to search, we would have the ability to share OneDrive file links directly through Outlook for interoffice collaboration.

            • prevent duplicated attachments

              While creating an email, you can add the same attachment multiple times. This looks weird, we should prevent this from happening.

              • Revert to a popup when attempting to "save all" attachments to a duplicate location

                In previous versions of Outlook, when I saved all attachments to a location they already existed, I was given the option to replace those files. Instead, duplicates with a numbered suffix are produced.

                The option to replace a file still occurs when attempting the above with a single file attachment. I'm unsure why the action is different when you attempt to save all at once.

                By not providing the option to replace these files, I'm forced to manually clean up these duplicates, which has increased my workload.

                Please revert back to how it was.

                • Open attachements in Client products instead of Office 365

                  Please make an option or preference to open attachments in the respective Office products instead of a Office 365 browser. I have the client products installed, I want to use them.

                        • After opening an attachment it is difficult to send a reply

                          Once an attachment in a mail is opened by double clicking it, Outlook goes to the Attachment tab and does not return to the Home tab. It becomes difficult to send a reply. One has to come back to the Home tab to send a response to the mail. Some via media can be found for this.

                            • Allow "Open with" for attachements

                              Allow the standard windows "Open with" option when right clicking email attachments so I can select a non-default application for the file type. For example, Some PDFs open better in Adobe Acrobat, but Acrobat DC is a total piece of garbage, so I use Nitro, which is marginally better, as my default. But as is I have to save the attachment locally (or go to the Outlook cache) to open with Adobe.

                                      • Allow users to click behind the compose message window when right-clicking sending an attachment through 64 bit Outlook 2016

                                        I just got off the phone with Microsoft support and they suggested posting this here. To me this sounds like a design flaw and not necessarily an addition since 32 bit works fine by letting me click behind the "Compose" window to click and drag in more attachments, etc. 64 bit does not allow this... at least on my machines here at work, which are around 150 workstations.

                                        • Outlook 2016 converts the file extension to uppercase when the filename ends with a capital character

                                          Outlook 2016 converts the file extension to uppercase when the filename ends with a capital character when you attach the file to the email.

                                          E.g. while you drag a file named tesT.txt to an email, outlook attaches the file as tesT.TXT. This always happens when the last character of the filename is an uppercase character.

                                          Outlook should not change the casing of an attachment.
