  1. Enable an option to display declined meetings

    Enable an option to display declined meetings in teh calendar (in settings). Often initially one is not available for a meeting, but then due to changes of schedule might be able to join, but since that meeting is not displayed in calendar, simply forgets about that. I found that option very helpful in Google mail that we used up to now in the company.

  2. Provide a feature or an option to revert to the old Outlook user interface in Microsoft Outlook 2016 prior to being modernized.

    Allow an option to revert to the old Outlook user interface in Microsoft Outlook, as the latest revision (today) has added a lot of white space(wasted as well as Reply, Reply All and Forward along with the Accept, Decline etc are in a different position and seems like too far to the right that I find unhelpful and uses valuable screen and are not user-adjustable. This had been shown in the "try the new features" button, but I for one turned it off as it was annoying - unfortunately you have pushed it on all users, business and home. It…

  4. Warning Before Replying All to Many

    Many folks reply all to a mass email, providing feedback like "Great Job" or "Look forward to this" to hundreds of employees instead of the responsible party. There should be a warning that asks you if you are sure to send this email to 13,000 people at once? This would be a fail safe for when people hit reply all instead of reply.

  5. Add BCC, CC as well as FYI field to meeting requests in Outlook 2016

    I would like the option to send meetings requests with BCC, CC so all information about all invitees is not shared with everyone that is invited

    Also, Outlook calendar entries need BCC, CC – without showing these and need to extend them to Skype as well as Microsoft Teams Meetings.

  6. Recurring meetings: Option to end recurrence as alternative to cancelling series

    When a recurring meeting is being canceled and "remove(d) from calendar", previous sessions are also deleted.

    I'd prefer to keep the history of my past tasks and whereabouts, so I would like an option to "remove only future meetings in this series"

    To achieve the same at the moment, the organizer has to go to recurrence and input an end date - The above suggestion could be combined with a dialogue box when cancelling a recurring meeting to chose from "cancel series" or to "end recurrence"

  7. Change ownership of calendar event in Outlook 2016

    Sometimes the owner of a meeting (or, more often, meeting series) is on vacation or changes jobs; it would be nice if they could assign ownership of an instance (for vacation) or the full series (for job changes) to someone else. Also provide an option to create a meeting on someone's behalf without being included in the meeting.

  8. Compose window entry fields for TO and CC are way bigger than text label in latest update to Microsoft Outlook 2016.

    The entry fields for TO and CC are taller than the spacing of their labels to the left. This leaves less vertical space for the Subject entry field (both not aligned to its label, as well as narrower than the TO & CC fields), and looks very sloppy. Please revert it to the older format or provide an option to select between the new and old format.

  9. Contact ONLY Individuals who have not replied to a meeting request

    You should be able to (under tracking) easily email or reach out to those who have not responded to an outlook invite to a meeting request. The only way I see it can be done now, is to hand extract those individuals and resend a new meeting request.

  10. Forward\Reply\Reply All with attachments included in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    In Microsoft Outlook 2016, when we forward\reply\reply all to the email with attachments, the attachments are not available and we have to attach them manually. An option to reply all to the email with all the attachments included would be more productive in Microsoft Outlook 2016 as that option is not available as of now.

  11. Add 'Acknowledged' and 'Thanks' buttons to emails that will tell the sender you have seen their email, without having to send another.

    Add 'Acknowledged' and 'Thanks' buttons to emails that will tell the sender you have seen/appreciate their email, without having to send another, thereby reducing email traffic.

  12. Change colors of Outlook or Word icons

    In the task bar, latest icons for Outlook 365 and Word 365 are too similar (blue).
    It's confusing.

  13. New dark Office Theme

    Would be nice to see a new dark Office theme with colour accents like the colourful theme has. Also, having separate theme settings for the different Office products would be nice since I don't necessarily want dark mode on Word but really like it on Outlook.

  14. Unread Email Count - Move it back!

    I hate that the new unread email count for any box is aligned to the right. I cannot find anything online on how to fix this. PLEASE change this back or at least give the user the ability to determine if they want the count number next to the folder name or aligned differently.

  17. email address

    Always show the full email address of a sender in the view pane. This is a major security risk that the email address of a sender is hidden and requires several clicks to view. Default should always be to show the full sender email address.

  19. Automatically block of 15 minutes before and after each meeting

    It is my manual task to always block some time before and after meetings, lot's of extra clicking in Outlook. I would love to see a feature or someone explain to me how I can tell Outlook, to by default make my meetings appear to start 15 minutes earlier and stop 15 minutes later, than they actually do, so no one can book back to back through my entire schedule.
