  1. Outlook for Windows "Posteingang für Relevance" for GMAIL-Accounts

    In Outlook for Android it is also possible to use the functionality "Inbox with relevance" for GMAIL accounts.
    In Outlook for Windows the Inbox with relevance is only available for Office 365, Exchange and Outlook.com accounts. Is it possible that the function (with GMAIL accounts) is also available in Outlook for Windows?
    Thank you in advance.
    Greetings Charly

          • Integrate the online and desktop version of Outlook into one application.

            Each version of MS Outlook (online and desktop) has it's drawbacks and benefits. Why not integrate the features and support of each into one application.

            Q01: Why do I have to call two different support departments to get help with each version of Microsoft Outlook (online and desktop)?

            Q02: Why can't I access my main folders first and then drill down to my target folders when I make a rule on the online version, instead of having to wade through all my folders at once? I have a lot of sub-folders. Finding the folder I want takes an absurd amount…

              • Outlook: Reply to digitally signed email with unsigned email

                For digitally signed email messages, the default behavior for Outlook is to reply with a digitally signed email. I'd like to change this default so that when I reply to a digitally signed email, the response is not signed - unless I explicitly turn on the digital signature.

                • add a rule for where my name is not in the to or cc box

                  Please add a rule for "where my name is not in the to or cc box. There is already a rule for "is in the cc box" and one for "is in the to or cc box" and one for "is not in the to box". The new request of a rule for "where my name is not in the to or cc box" will identify the bcc (blind cc) emails, I don't think anybody wants to get an email that is not specifically addressed to them.

                    • Office project spaces

                      I often work on creating specs and presentations and while creating these I have a ton of other supporting documents like previous specs, excel sheets, customer emails, market research etc containing data from which I extract the information that justifies and supports my spec.

                      Coming from a dev background and working in IDEs like Visual Studio, I would like to create a project space in Office and then add my documents and artifacts to the project in an organized structure.

                      This is basically about improving my experience and improve productivity by easily providing access to the previously referenced assets.

                      Here…

                      • Outlook must provide the ability to allow to accept or decline part of a recurring meeting.

                        If a requester has sent a recurring meeting for the entire week and the attendee plans to be attending it just one day a week, there must be a way to indicate that in which case all other instances of that recurring meeting should fall off the calendar.

                            • Kombinierter Kalender - Combined Calender

                              I am working with three e-mails on Outlook. If I change to the calender I have three separated calenders for each e-mail adress a particular calender. It would be much easier to have one calender for all e-mails. Each e-mail need to have it's own colour to be distinguishable but like that my appointments are clearer and at a glance.

                                  There is no feature that shares online archive calendars. Would it be possible to set permissions for the calendars from Outlook client, however to see the calendars of online archive, I must give full access permission to the user who owns the mailbox and see the calendar from Outlook client with auto-mapping feature.
                                  The process is not easy and time-consuming.

                                    • Index pictures of text

                                      I often see people posting screenshots of text (code, console output, etc) instead of the text itself. Later on, when wanting to search in email for details about this email, the text in the picture is completely unsearchable. It should be relatively straightforward to run OCR on an image, to see if contains text, and if so, index it like normal text elsewhere in the email.

                                      • I would like to send a calender invite from Outlook to a mobile phone number.

                                        With many younger people not checking emails, being able to send a calendar invite to a mobile number would be helpful.

                                        • exporting a shared calendar into excel

                                          Why can I only export my calendar into excel and not a calendar that is shared with me
