  2. Get rid of yellow background highlight on flagged messages or allow it to be disabled

    The new Outlook update puts a yellow background highlight on flagged messages. It is awful to look at an inbox full of yellow highlights. Please remove this highlighting or allow it to be disabled.

  3. Copy an existing meeting into a new meeting

    Allow the copying of an existing meeting into a new meeting that can be edited for content, attendees, time, etc., and then sent. This dramatically decreases the work effort of scheduling meetings and reduces friction between your users and the software.

  11. Add a quick link under the "delay delivery" menu to "send message at 8 AM the following business day"

    add a quick link under the "delay delivery" menu to "send message at 8 AM the following business day" so that I don't have to configure every email I am sending to my team over the weekend.

  12. Scheduling Assistant - Time Zones

    When scheduling meetings with folks from different time zones than us, can we see the time in their local area also? For example, I am scheduling a meeting with a team in India while I am in the US Pacific time zone. When I am trying to schedule the meeting with India Team, I don't see what the time is for them when I select 7PM pacific.

  13. goto Folder from search list

    when i have lots of folder that are nested, and I have done a search, it cam be very difficult to find where the messages are located. I would like the ability to see the path displayed in the search and the ability right click on the message in the search list and select goto Folder. This would place me in the folder where this message was found.

  14. Add a "Thank You" and "You're Welcome" buttons to emails - reduces email clutter

    Add "Thank You" and "You're Welcome" buttons in an email, so that when a recipient clicks on the buttons, the original sender gets a brief pop-up text message saying "Thank You", rather than getting yet another email in the inbox that just says "Thank You". And if the email has multiple recipients, then the "Thank You" pop-up text is only sent back to the original sender. This will reduce the volume of useless "Thank You" emails that end up cluttering our inboxes.

  15. Enable Immersive Reader in Outlook client

    Immersive Reader is a cool feature and it is more advanced than the "Read aloud" feature available in Outlook client.
    It would be better to have Immersive reader feature available in outlook client too.

  16. Enable back "Always prompt for logon credentials" for Outlook client/email

    Enable back "Always prompt for logon credentials" for Outlook client/email

    Since it has been grayed out and not able to change. Users should have that option due to security risks when using office and outlook.

    Make it possible to prompt for user credentials every time or not

  18. Removing folders

    Give us the ability to remove folders we don't use. Many of us do not use the "group", "conversations" or various other folders that Outlook automatically installs and will let us delete. Users should be able to remove any folder they don't want.

  19. "Busy" color in Scheduling Assistant

    In the recent version of Outlook which has the "Simplified Ribbon", it appears that the color of the bar representing "Busy" in the calendar Scheduling Assistant screen has been changed. Busy used to be bright blue, whereas Out of Office was a darker color. Now, with the new changes, as a colorblind person I can no longer tell these two apart. They both look like the same exact color. Now I cannot easily tell when someone is busy vs out of office. Please revert the "busy" color back to a lighter color.

  20. Ability to schedule time to address email


    1. I receive an email.

    2. I mark that email with a flag because I have to perform a certain action for this email. The result of adding the flag, is that Outlook shows a task based on this email.

    3. Now I want to be able to go to this email or the task of the email and schedule time in my calendar to perform the required action for this email. This calendar event should be linked to the email or the linked task.

    This makes so much sense to me, but is not yet possible in Outlook. You can only set…
