  1. Custom spacing of QAT icons

    The horizontal spacing of the Quick Access Toolbar (QAT) icons dramatically increased with the download of Office Outlook 2016. I can no longer see many of the important QAT icons and using the program is significantly less efficient now. Please restore the ability to display QAT icons in a narrow format. I will not download Office 2016 on my desktop until this issue is resolved because it is so significant. I am considering rolling back my laptop to Office 2013 until the issue is resolved.

  3. Resume feature for Office Applications in Office for MAC and Windows

    For almost 5 years, since Apple released Mac OS X Lion in July 2011, Mac users enjoyed "Resume" feature that enables applications to re-open in exactly the same state as before quitting the application or restarting the system, including window positions and contents of unsaved files.

    Lack of the "Resume" feature is what makes me dread logging off and restarting Windows. Especially when I have multiple Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents open in different virtual desktops on two monitors - having to re-create this setup after the restart is really annoying.

    I would suggest Microsoft implements this functionality in both…

  4. GPO Sync Slider settings

    The current settings in the GPOs allow only a fixed cache period, which is now in Outlook 2016 more granular, what is great. But it woulod be beneficial to have two GPO settings regarding this:
    1. The time frame of caching in month (existing)
    2. If the user can change this within the defined time frame
    So for example the GPO fixes 12 month caching, but with the second option, the user could lower to 6 month, but not beyond the 12 month.

  5. Provide an option or feature to disable KeyTips or ToolTips feature in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    For multi-lingual teams, where communication flows in different languages, it is common to use Alt+Shift keystroke to change between written language.

    At the same time desktop version of Outlook has KeyTips feature (tiny tooltips shown next to UI buttons and menus) which is also activated by Alt key.

    Unfortunately, this KeyTip feature most of the type conflicts with the desire to switch the keyboard language.

    When you try to be effective and type your email fast, in 80% of cases you activate KeyTips instead of changing language. If you keep typing you risk to trigger different actions, or loose emails.

  6. Enable Contact Support, and Send a Smile, and Submit Feedback, and other feedback to all Office 365 subscription channels

    The best way to prioritize and fix issues in MS applications is to freely allow all users to tell MS when things are broken, directly from the application - quickly and easily. Users should not have to go log on to some community to report an issue, they should not have to contact their office 365 administrator. Users should be able to send feedback and report issues everywhere, on every page and in every corner of the application Then MS will know what problems are affecting the most users and have a better handle on how frustrated the users are…

  7. Provide a feature to check the Automatic replies if any set, during meeting invites response in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    When somebody updated "out of office" in Outlook (before going on vacation mentioning the dates of vacation), and any meeting invites are received with mentioned dates for "out of office", then the sender shall be informed about "out of office" notifications.

    Example:
    When I am on planned vacation from 14th to 16th Sept 2018 and I set
    the out of office settings on 12th Sept 2018 mentioning with 14th Sept to 16th Sept 2018. If anyone is sending a meeting invite before 13th Sept 2018, they should get the auto reply mentioning the dates.

    Please respond in mail if any…

  9. Outlook recently stopped using the pinned icon when starting

    I have the Outlook Icon pinned to my taskbar. I have this and other icons arranged on my taskbar in a certain order. I use the applications the Icons represent frequently and am more easily able to find what I need by going to the icon and clicking it instead of using Alt-Tab. I can't say exactly when this started but now when I click on the icon, it creates a second identical icon once the application has started. I must now click that second icon to switch to it. Clicking the original one gives the error that only one…

  12. Provide an icon to point out an link shared in the email in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Can we create an icon for shared file links in default email view. We have them for attachments so that we can visually see when an email includes an attachment, why not for file share links?

  13. Provide an option to store quick parts and signatures in the PST file in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    I would like Outlook to store the quick parts and signatures in PST files, because it would make a re-installation much easier. Some days ago, I must have reinstalled my PC, but I did not know, that quick parts and signatures are stored somewhere else than in PST, so I lost this information (because I backed up only my PST file).

    Regards,
    Michael

  14. Provide an option to edit contact while it was added instead of adding again

    When a member has been added to the contacts it is still showing when you hover the mouse to the 3 dots under the name of that recipient/sender that you still have an option to 'Add to Contacts' although it is been added already wherein it should be Edit Contacts.

  15. Inform the sender if he/she is trying to send out-of-date date

    example:
    Today(13-07-2017 or 13th July) I want to write a mail to XYZ to inform that i will be out of office.

    i write as below,

    Hello XYZ,

    I will be out of office on 16th June due to some personal reasons.
    Thanks for Understanding.
    Regards,


    Now in the above mail 16th June is out-of-date,but the sender is unaware of this.

    Action outlook can take:
    look for the mail subject: leave request/out of office / absence etc
    and the date in mail is outdated

    solution: Outlook can pop-up a message to the sender saying you have a out-of-date in your…

  19. responsive design

    Outlook is generally awful in split screen mode. It should be redesigned to respond more fluidly (like websites) when the size of the window is altered.
