  1. The operation cannot be performed because the message has been changed

    Keep getting this error when about to send a long email. This is incredibly frustrating and happens to every user in our office using Outlook 365. It seems only to happen if you take more than 20-30minutes to compose a message.

  3. Delete incorrect email addresses

    When typing an email, many times it will fill in the rest of the email address and could be the wrong address due to an error. How can the incorrect email be deleted so it is not readily there to be used?

  4. Dark Mode on Outlook Today

    It's about time to add a dark mode on the Outlook Today Screen. It's a pretty useful feature but it just don't make sense to have a white background on a dark mode setting.

  5. 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.

  6. Create multiple events in a single calendar invite

    We setup workshops in which multiple presenters are involved over a period of two/three weeks and morning and evening sessions to include several geographies.

    This leads to creating at least 20-30 invites and all invites are sent individually with multiple "Teams" meeting invites

    if we could create multiple sessions using an XLS or some wizard or something very simple, we can decide the entire schedule and send one invite email which will create several slots in users calendars. this will not flood the inbox with multiple meeting invite emails.

  7. Automatically copy meeting request forwarders

    When someone forwards a meeting request, provide an option for the person who forwarded it to be automatically copied in responses (accept/tentative/decline) as well as the original meeting organizer.

  8. Reminder to attach the file you promised in the email

    Often, people forget to attach the document that they promised in the email. They then send a new email with the line 'uups, the usual mistake' and with the document attached.

    This could be avoided if Outlook reminded you to attach a file. For instance, outlook could scan for words like 'attach' and similar, and when detecting a word but no attachment would prompt a pop-up similar to when sending a meeting invite when there is no subject.

    Another problem is that the new email with the attachment creates a new thread, so confusion arise on a) which to respond…

  9. A traffic light system so individuals can indicate their current workload and availability

    Enable a traffic light system so individuals can indicate their current workload and availability, and have this visible to their team members at a glance within Outlook. A simple traffic light shade scale: green through amber and red. During this period of Covid-19, i need an easy way to see when my team are available and have capacity for work - whether it be email/calls/video. A simple green traffic light would mean they are available; red they are not available; sliding scale in between. Ideally visible immediately under the toolbar for each team member.

  11. Hide Private Appointments When Sharing Screen

    I would appreciate it if one could toggle a mode in Outlook Calendar whether or not to show private appointements.
    When I share my screen (Skype, MS Teams, projector, ...) and have the calendar open I don't want others to see private appointements (because they are private and could contain confidential information).

    So I would expect to have a toggle switch to enter this mode where private appointements are shown as 'Private Appointement' and not with their title. I also would like that Outlook automatically enters this mode when the screen is shared in an online meeting. Detect projectors may…

  14. An option to Resend a message from context menu.

    Would be nice to have an option to Resend a message straight from the Context Menu (Right click), like in Foxmail.

    Now you need to navigate to Sent, then double-click to open a message, then click Actions, then click Resend - WAY TO MANY CLICKS. Thanks

  18. Flag meeting/appointment to reschedule

    We are in a situation where we are responding to the COVID outbreak (we are a health dept), so many of the meetings that I have on my calendar will need to be rescheduled, but I have no idea when we will be back to normal operations, so I would like a way to "flag' these meetings as postponed and put them somewhere (in a folder or somewhere) that I can go back to, to reschedule them at a later time.

  19. Pause desktop notifications - similar to what Slack can do

    Pause desktop notifications - similar to what Slack can do - so if you're presenting on a webinar your participants won't see your email notifications

  20. Blocking the users from booking the Room which is already booked

    When the Room is unavailable/already booked and we further select the Room, we get an option of ‘Send anyway’ and ‘Cancel’. When we select ‘Send anyways’ the meeting is created and the request is forwarded to room mailbox, however we receive a decline message that the room was already booked by some other user.

    Now the ask is the user should not be able to get an option to Book the room at all (i.e. get an option to click ‘Send Anyway’) when it is already booked by some other user.

    If we can remove/disable the option for Send Anyway?
