  1. Sort by @-mentions

    It would be great if we had the ability to sort for Mentions, similar to Categories, E-mails with @ mentions would be moved to the top of the folder.

  2. Provide a feature to create Temporary rules in Microsoft Outlook

    A feature to create temporary rules, i.e., a rule which will only be in effect for the following day/week, and then gets automatically deleted/disabled.

    The specific scenario I have in mind is for managing email threads. I could create a rule such that, until end-of-day/week, emails from that thread will automatically go into a specific folder. Many threads don't last so long that I want to create a permanent rule, since I don't want to deal with managing deprecated rules later, and if a thread does last long enough to outlast the rule, either I need to catch up or…

  5. Black screen privacy button on task bar - toggle on and toggle off

    Add a feature which would allow users to click a button on the task bar to go to a black “privacy” screen. The suggestion is to turn the screen black except the task bar at the bottom. Then you can click the button to unveil your screen and return to your work.

  7. Provide an option to change the default pane that Outlook opens on (e.g., change default from Email to Calendar)

    I spend a lot of time randomized by email, so I've started scheduling two 30-minute blocks to check email every day. However, Outlook still opens on Email by default, which can be distracting if I'm just trying to check my Calendar. Being able to set the default pane to the Calendar would help me stay focused and productive.

  8. Please add [Specific User] in the shared link setting of OneDrive for Business to the [Change Permissions] menu.

    [アクセス許可の変更] のメニューに OneDrive for Business の共有リンク設定にある [特定のユーザー] を追加して欲しい。

    Please add [Specific User] in the shared link setting of OneDrive for Business to the [Change Permissions] menu.


    ■ Description (内容) :
    OneDrive for Business の共有でのみ [特定のユーザー] が選択できないため、Outlook 上の [アクセス許可の変更] に [特定のユーザー] を追加して欲しい。

    Because you can not select [Specific User] only in OneDrive for Business sharing, please add [Specific User] to [Change Permissions] on Outlook.

  9. Fix Automatic Replies from Changing Pasted Text to Images

    Currently if you paste text from OneNote into Outlook's Automatic Replies text box, it will paste the text as an image file instead of text. Please fix this bug to make Microsoft products work better together! Currently you have to paste text from OneNote to Notepad and again to Outlook to prevent this.

  10. Provide a feature of main folder Locking in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Some people may have a lot of sub-folders within a folder on the left side column. It would be handy if the main folder could be locked to the underside of the line that separates 'Favorites' with the folders beneath. Why, because when you need to scroll down to the last sub folder for example, you need to scroll all the way back up to be able to close the main folder, thus hiding all the sub folders. So, instead of scrolling, if the main folder heading is locked and doesn't disappear when scrolling it would be much easier to…

  12. Get rid of yellow background highlight on flagged messages or allow it to be disabled

    The new Outlook update puts a yellow background highlight on flagged messages. It is awful to look at an inbox full of yellow highlights. Please remove this highlighting or allow it to be disabled.

  14. Ability to add a custom mandatory field to emails while sending them.

    There should be an option to add a custom mandatory field (similar to how the "To" field is mandatory). Reason for this is that in a support based role, it would be great if we could add a Ticket Reference/Work Item number into the mandatory field, which prompts me to enter this before sending any email. This means that we can always track the email chains by ensuring we forced to enter this information. Also, if this custom field can be part of the automated search function.

  15. Provide automatically each new mail with a unique ID number (possibly a progressive number) in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    As Corporate we need to assign to each outbound message a specific reference number.
    This has been indeed a MUST on all commercial exchange in the past.
    Current e-mail providers (Outlook) does not include the option to automatically assign an unique ID reference number to every in/out coming mails. This is a big mess

  16. Provide a feature to enable notifications on the active device only in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Provide a feature to enable notifications on the active device only in Microsoft Outlook 2016 to avoid multiple devices receiving notifications for the same account.

    If I'm using Outlook on my PC and I receive a new email, I don't need my phone going off in my pocket about it. Similar to functionality in Teams.

  17. Switch for multiple views

    It will be better if we can save multiple views with different name and switch between whenever a different view is needed.

  19. Please implement the. NST document to set the default path

    Hi all, Most of the emails we manage have to join and subscribe to multiple groups because of their work needs, Generated. NST documents stored in the C disk directory will produce more than 20G of occupation, and we use for some of our colleagues to use the cloud system, C disk space itself is not too large, if you can not move to custom directories, such as: When setting up messages by default to the D disk, or we really do not, or even use the modified registry to achieve storage location more Change.
    That often colleagues C disk…
