    • An easy way to turn off the autoformat features, esp. the Auto Indent.

      Turn off autoformat so that that paragraphs weren't automatically indented.

      • Allow to create multiple meetings on different dates with invitees.

        Create multiple meetings on multiple days / times with different subjects / locations. A use case could be for a school calendar where Monday Jan 15 is a holiday, Wednesday May 12 is a conference day, and Tuesday June 2 is report cards. A table-like interface, with the ability to invite people, would be great.

          • Snooze All in Outlook Reminder Window

            For Outlook, I would LOVE to see a SNOOZE ALL... you have dismiss all, but I would rather see a snooze all.
            There are times when I get into the office in the morning and I just log in and a ton of reminders popup. I need to deal with other things in the morning, so a Snooze All would be great, rather than having to keep changing the snooze timer for each one, one-by-one. It would be great!

            • Animated signature

              It would be wonderful to have an animated signature by inserting a gif file to the signature.

                • Provide a filter emails by searching unreplied messages

                  Implement a search filter that allows you to search for messages that have not been replied to yet. This will allow Outlook Users to identify messages that have been received, but not responded to yet. Thus, minimizing the occurrence of missed emails.

                  • Reduce padding in messages list to fit more messages

                    Reduce padding (or add option to configure) in message list to fit more messages.

                    The setting could be a similar like Word has to switch between Touch/Mouse mode, but would be better if it had manual control how many pixels a user wants. This could be under View Settings > Advanced View Settings > Other Settings, for example.

                    • Bring back ability to Reply To Draft messages, but keep the draft available, or show me a template feature.

                      Don't perpetually get in your users way. I use a collection of draft messages as ready made "templates" in my business process flow. Switching to 2016 took that away.

                        • Action options (reply, forward etc) are big and with borders in simple ribbon in Outlook 2019

                          For the "Simple ribbon" feature in Outlook 2019, action buttons in the reading pane are big and with borders after changing to "Simple Ribbon". Make it more immersed and embedded on the pane than buttons.

                          • Enable Outlook as a Complication for Info graph Modular Apple Watch face.

                            Provide Outlook as a Complication on the Info graph Modular Apple Watch Face. Outlook is already available as a complication on the Modular Apple Watch Face, of which Info graph Modular is roughly v2 and takes advantage of new hardware.

                                  • Provide an option to keep the first email item as unread when moving to different emails using 'unread' view in Microsoft Outlook 2016

                                    When selecting 'unread' view in Outlook, the first uread item by default becomes tagged as 'read' when I click on another item. This is annoying as I typically use 'unread' to maintain items I should get back to. It is very easy to by accident get this first mail tagged as read without really reading it.

                                    • Remove references to 'his or her' in calendar of Outlook 2016

                                      We want to change the terminology here from “his or her” to “their”, in order to be inclusive of individuals who do not identify as female nor male. You could also consider ways of avoiding the use of a pronoun altogether: “Would you like to contact the calendar owner to ask for calendar access”? You could also import the users’ registered prefixes and say for instance: “Do you want to contact (Prefix) Name Surname to ask for calendar access?”. In this way, if a user is registered to use a prefix such as “Mx”, this can be imported to the…

                                      • Provide a feature to create SEARCH FOLDER based on Regular Expressions in Microsoft Outlook 2016

                                        When we use SEARCH in Microsoft Outlook 2016 using regular expressions, a provision of a SEARCH FOLDER to be created based on regular expression like: (((((to:(First Name; Last Name) OR cc:(First Name; Last Name)) AND ((isread:no) OR ((isread:yes) AND followupflag:followup flag)))) AND folderpath:Inbox)) would make the application more productive.

                                        • Show full text of email subject line when simplified ribbon is used in Microsoft Outlook 2016

                                          With the simplified ribbon turned on the subject line in an email is limited to one line. If it's longer than one line the end gets cut off and you have to hover the mouse over it to read the full subject in a tool-tip which disappears after a few seconds. Please show the full subject over multiple lines like it used to be.
