  1. 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.

      • Provide a "Sort" option in the Blocked Senders list.

        The "Sort" option should sort the blocked senders' emails by date, domain name and user name. This would allow deleting old names or some domains that no longer send junk/spam.

        • Allow user to silence out of office warning for a period of time, or until the defined window is up.

          It's very annoying to get a yellow warning every time Out of Office is turned on. You set a start and end time knowing when those times are, why warn me every time I open Outlook that it's in effect? Very annoying and unnecessary. Allow me to acknowledge and silence the warning like you can for a calendar reminder or get rid of the warning altogether.

          • Provide an update schedule for security only.

            Please provide a schedule for security updates only. We have never enjoyed a single new "feature" with any Outlook update since we (bad decision) switched to Office 365 for Business. We absolutely detest the unwanted updates - we don't see any improvements in anything, but we do have to contend with silly interface changes, slower performance, and addins breaking that have worked for years. We would like the security patches, though.

            It would be nice if you could just toggle something that opted for security updates only. We don't need or want any of the other updates.

              • Allow Templates (in add-ins ) to be available through a single click in Microsoft Outlook 2016

                Have to click Add-ins, then My Templates before we can see them, every time. Would be useful if we could just turn them on and have permanently in a side bar. (which could be hidden if needed)

                  Show the login window on top of the Microsoft Outlook 2016 enabling emails to be hidden for security. Once the user has entered and validated the credentials, the emails should be revealed.

                                  Provide a feature that could distinguish the types of mailboxes and, for a room mailbox, do not let the Outlook Client update a time zone in Outlook Client. The location of room mailboxes is fixed, and thus its time zone does not need to be updated.

                                  • Provide a feature to automatically disable email preview pop up when screen sharing is on in Microsoft Outlook 2016

                                    There are several occasions where there are email notifications and a preview pop-up appears from the screen of the organizer. There are instances where these emails are confidential and should not be seen by the audience is calls/meetings. I was hoping for outlook functionality to automatically disable notification previews while Skype (for business) screensharing is on.

                                    • Fix Views - Outlook's "Views" Don't Retain Customized Settings Sometimes

                                      Outlook's "Views" settings are in need of bug fixing. When a user creates a custom view or modifies any of the existing views, those custom settings are not always retained by the Outlook client, and are also not always updated to the Office365/Exchange server.

                                      This problem has existed for years. It was partially addressed recently through a ticket I submitted, but the Outlook team did not fully resolve the issue.

                                      The ticket number for this issue is: SRX616041193709359ID

                                      I can replicate this problem 100% of the time and can demonstrate the problem.

                                        • Provide the option to add sounds in Office 365

                                          for office 365 and 2016. while the old sounds add in works with a workaround this should be part on the new office 365 and windows 10 build updates.
