  1. Do not let the Outlook Client update the value of a time zone on its server while editing the profile in Outlook Client

    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.

  7. 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.

  8. Allow Outlook cache mode settings to be set by Group Policy Preference

    Currently the only enterprise configuration options available for Office 365 ProPlus (C2R) is through Group Policy. When dealing specifically with the settings available to configure cache mode settings there are only policies, not preferences. As we know policies are restrictive and do not allow the user to edit the configuration. We would like to have the option to set default cache settings but allow the user to change that configure to meet their needs.

  13. 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.

  16. 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.
