  1. Removing folders

    Give us the ability to remove folders we don't use. Many of us do not use the "group", "conversations" or various other folders that Outlook automatically installs and will let us delete. Users should be able to remove any folder they don't want.

  8. Replace "Reply, Reply All, Forward" or the "Discard, Pop out" buttons back to to left.

    They are now on the upper right hand corner, whereas before they were on the left.
    On large, widescreen monitors, these are never in your direct line of sight and are "hidden" out of sight in the upper right hand corner.

  9. Using Artificial Intelligence in Outlook.

    Hello,

    Is it possible to automate mail transport operations with artificial intelligence and create learning infrastructure in Outlook?

    I'm talking about something other than basic rule-making.

    We want to see Artificial Intelligence on the outlook application.

    There is no study on artificial intelligence in end-user products.

  11. Customize rooms listed in the Show a room list menu in Scheduling assistant

    Please add a client feature that can show only regularly used rooms in the Show a room list menu in the right-side pane of Scheduling assistant when creating a meeting with Outlook client. It would be great if it could be done by end user instead of admins by using the client app.

  13. Display a notification when Outlook disconnects from the server

    Often Outlook disconnects from the Microsoft Exchange server with no notification other than the easily miss-able small text in the right of the status bar. User can potentially miss lots of emails, or have sent mails stuck in the outbox as they are not made aware of the disconnection. User should be immediately notified whenever an involuntary disconnection occurs.

  14. Provide a feature to insert the date of return automatically into auto reply

    Please provide a feature to insert the returning date into automatic reply.
    We do not have to change anything besides the date after the message is written once, but if it is written in several languages, we often forget to exchange the date somewhere, because we need to change it manually in the option and in evey part of the message on both pages inside and outside of the organization. Thank you in advance.

  18. Transparent Updates

    Stop stealth updates. Your last update broke appointments, TELL us when you are going to apply an update, WHAT is in the update, and allow us to ROLL BACK if things get broken. So much time and frustration chasing a problem only to find out you updated things, changed or broke the way they work, and didn't tell anyone.

  19. Ability to subcategories of categories.

    There is no option for subcategories of categories. If we have over 2000 tasks, so there is a huge need for this feature.
    For example, currently we have the following categories in the list: shopping books, shopping food, shopping sports...
    It would be great to have the MAIN CATEGORY "shopping" and then the SUBCATEGORIES "books, food, sports..."

  20. Ability to use / select multiple categories at the same time in Outlook

    It would be really useful to have the ability to select multiple Categories at the same time. Currently you can only select one at a time which means you have to go back to Categories selection to select another category. Most frustrating
