  7. Provide an option or feature to place navigation buttons on top in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Provide an option or feature to place navigation buttons on top in Microsoft Outlook 2016 (mail/calendar/contacts..) on top of the left tray. This way you'll have all important controls on top, so there will be less swinging of mouse.

  8. Office project spaces

    I often work on creating specs and presentations and while creating these I have a ton of other supporting documents like previous specs, excel sheets, customer emails, market research etc containing data from which I extract the information that justifies and supports my spec.

    Coming from a dev background and working in IDEs like Visual Studio, I would like to create a project space in Office and then add my documents and artifacts to the project in an organized structure.

    This is basically about improving my experience and improve productivity by easily providing access to the previously referenced assets.

    Here…

  11. Provide the Communication Center.

    Outlook (OL) tends to be my communication record database include phone call record items, text/sms message records, letters (Word and/or scan of old school USPS mail sent or received), Email Note items (separate suggestion) and fax record items. These items could be entered manually or automatically if initiated by OL. It would be great to have a conversation view that included all OL items, including these suggested new ones, for a contact in one place. This would provide a much more Holistic view and timeline of the communications with a person. Withing this view one should be able to search…

  13. Open emails and send them...Really

    New version of Outlook often fails to Open (stuck on loading profile). When it does open it often leaves emails on Outbox. The only way to send them is to reboot the machine. Even then some of them will still be stuck on Outbox. You have to manually open each one and press send again.

  14. Outlook 2016 hangs on startup connecting to a lot of mailboxes in foreground thread

    When starting outlook, it will hang for about 5-10 minutes at the splash screen. Opening up the connection status screen from the taskbar, I see that it is connecting to a lot of company mailboxes (all to which I have access to), each taking approx 1 minute to connect to - and it's doing it in the FOREGROUND thread (connection type). I actually don't even want all these mailboxes connected by default, but outlook won't even let me choose.

  15. Have your moderators do their jobs in a timely fasion

    I have posted a suggestion on April 18th and till this day this suggestion is been waiting approval by a moderator.

    The title of the suggestion is:
    fix broken focused inbox

    Your organization is apparently lacking even the most common of decencies. Doing what you promise to do. Maybe you should stop delivering under par products and do something about your procedures first.

  16. 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…

  18. Provide an option for Admins to enable disabled inbox rules in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    As an admin, I can not see deactivated inboxrules in the mailboxes of other users. As a result, I can not enable disabled rules and must create a new rule instead. All disabled rules will be deleted.

  19. go back to office 2003 when things were good. Mircrosoft new products now suck! Pathetic when you had XP Pro and now your messing things up.

    XP Pro with word 2003 is the best. Seriously, what is going on?c Fire the rocket scientist and hire back the people who knew what was going on.! It now takes 5 minutes to start up an office program. Is this new state of the art thinking? LMAO

  20. Make it so that I can sign into this site with my existing Office credentials

    I have a Microsoft account. Why can't I sign into Microsoft feedback with my Microsoft credentials? The degree of boneheadedness is staggering.
