  1. Provide a feature of Colored marking for Full-Time Events/All Day Dates in task strip in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Until Outlook 2010 you could set a (colored) category to dates/events which was showing colored in task strip whether the date/event was full time or not. Outlook 2016/2019 doesn't show the events/dates colored in task strip if these aren't full time. These events are shown in grey only. So my workaround until now is to set the full-time events from 0:00-23:59 going. That's very irritating. Please fix this and give the opportunity to show full time events colored again in task strip area!!!!

  3. Provide a means to "Mark as read" items in Public Folders

    Currently, there i no way to mark (calendar) items in public folder as read. Even switching to list view does not help (i.e. Ctrl-A + Ctrl-Q is not available in public folders).

  5. Windows FileShare folders to be visible in Outlook

    Rather than creating own folders in outlook for organising and saving mail, it would be great to just use existing folders created in a windows fileshare. This would make it easier to share and organise information by allowing emails to be saved directly to the same locations as other documents.

  6. 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?

  7. 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.

  11. 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.

  13. Allow us to LOG OUT!!!! I am trying to add several accounts e.g. work, personal ... you won't let me slog out of the initial account!!!

    Try replacing working applications with ones that are better - not worse!!!! There's no way any reasonable audit comes out with Win 10 as being more usable than prior releases. Can we get rid of the childish low IQ presentations please?

  15. Option to compress archieve (pst ost) in context menue

    To compress ost or pst archieves we have to dig deep doen (Archieve Properties -> Advanced -> Advanced -> Outlook Archieve Settings -> Compress Now)

  16. Quick Access feature Additions/Enhancements that majority will appreciate and praise Microsoft for (Except maybe the development teams)

    This would likely be categorized as a quick access feature.

    Having the ability to perform general tasks while using the least amount of time would be the greatest enhancements anything can get.
    The ability to find and group quickly specific keywords, terms, numbers, letters, names, dates, sizes, and just in general all related emails very quickly in the real world of business and personal matters outweighs the need for more functions since if we work faster we progress faster we accomplish more faster and ultimately everything else will come into play "Quickly" after that.
    I would say the fact we…

  17. My previous contacts list has been 'lost' due to 'necessary Microsoft' 'upgrades'. Reinstate what was would be good.

    The idea is: "Microsoft Improvements" should be improvements. So what worked well in the past is built upon. Not destroy what was working well, to confuse customers repeatedly & consistently, whilst charging more financial funds from those paying customers: That is a 'manager's bonus & accountant's task to suit 'shareholder profit demands' joke with very low integrity and seems to be an intentionally organized, increasing download needs, & repeated Microsoft IT applied debacle. Stop those criminal activities and become a reliable service provider. (pls take time to read the attached terms & conditions (with a cheap lawyer, if you find…
