  2. 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.

  3. Create the option to add a Conflict column/field to Views. This would make Conflicts more visible and allow resolution faster.

    I love the ability to create custom views for all of my Outlook folders and decide which columns (fields) I want shown. An important column/field that is missing from the choices of available columns in the Conflicts flag/notification.

    Let me elaborate. Sometimes, when I open a mail item, an informational notice/flag appears in the header that reads, "This is the most recent version, but you made changes to another copy. Click here to see the other versions."

    My suggestion is that that you allow me to add this notice/flag to my Views. When glancing down a list of messages, I…

  6. have a feedback service that actually allows you to say what problems you are having rather than this utterly stupid system of suggesting a

    I have had several issues since being forced to upgrade to Office 365. Now I find I can't get any emails from apps where I am attemting to join, or have forgotten my password - I can't sign into zoom or enrol with new online apps. This new office is making my working life very difficult with all it's controls - that is automatic controls that remove my control. If this continues I will insist on my it comapny installing an older version of outlook. And you cna't even complain! I don't want to suggest a feature! I just want…

  10. When I click "Suggest a Feature" in Outlook Pro Plus, I should be directed to an Outlook Pro Plus forum, not one for Outlook 2016.

    Why does the "Suggest a Feature" in Outlook Pro Plus open this User Voice forum for Outlook 2016?

  12. 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. Meeting Minutes Center Feature

    For the Meeting organizer/owner (or designees) add a feature as part of the Outlook meeting/appointment, to be able to manage the meeting minute, for example:

  15. When attachments to Outlook meetings or emails are opened, prompt user to "Save As" to avoid losing changes.

    Currently when attachments are opened, they are opened as temporary files. Any changes made to the file are LOST when you close the file, EVEN IF YOU HIT "SAVE" PRIOR TO CLOSING! When hitting "Save", MS Outlook should prompt you to "Save As", just like it does when you try to "Save" a read-only file. I just lost a ton or work thanks to this MS Office flaw.

  17. 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..."

  18. Outlook Archiving Tool needs user-selectable functionality

    The Archive tool has two operational problems as far as I’m concerned:

    • It uses Modified Date rather than Sent/Received Date as the selection criterion and
    • It doesn’t Archive Flagged messages

    While these attributes might be desirable for some users, my researches suggest that there are many users who disagree.
    I would like to see user selectable options for archiving criteria.

  19. Finally support aliases in your apps!

    18 months down the line now and still no resolution to this, despite the article explicitly saying "we are actively working on a fix". Any update?
    https://support.office.com/en-us/article/outlook-com-email-account-appears-as-outlook-long-series-of-letters-and-numbers-outlook-com-in-outlook-for-windows-90ed7938-7f21-4cb5-a69d-a3b79ea4eafd
    Flagship product and it cannot even do this basic function a year after article was written and 2 years after first reports. The free Win 10 email client does it. Even the iOS integrated mail client does! Not Outlook for iOS...the one built into iOS. Up the game MS. A new version of Office has been released in the meantime.
