  1. 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.

  8. Please create a window that pops up when I close outlook that advises me how many open emails there are.

    Please create a window that appears when I close Outlook that advises me how many open emails I have. Sometimes, I accidentally close Outlook when I meant to close just one open email. The result is that all my open emails are closed that I have saved to read later. This is very frustrating.

    Thank you - Michael Winer

  12. Fully integrate Microsoft Teams with Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Now teams recordings are stored in cloud and that require to access web site separately to view the content. In addition to that, looking for a facility in outlook like, once teams recording content is ready in cloud receiving an email notification with required metadata information can ease users to search locally and just click away content available to users help ease the daily work like forwarding the content or sharing the recording content.

  14. Wish there was an "For your awareness" rather than "cc"--

    I wish there was an option for addressees/invitees on email and calendar items that was "For Your Awareness" rather than "cc" indicating they are not expected to respond or attend, but for those situations when they need to be aware....the optional and required options are not as explicit

  15. uncancel a meeting request

    It would be great if we had a way to "uncanel" a meeting request that was cancelled if you are the facilitator. Accidents do happen!

  16. Outlook Archiving Tool needs user-selectable functionality

    The Archive tool has two operational problems as far as I’m concerned:

    • It uses Modified Date rather than Sent/Received Date as the selection criterion and
    • It doesn’t Archive Flagged messages

    While these attributes might be desirable for some users, my researches suggest that there are many users who disagree.
    I would like to see user selectable options for archiving criteria.

  17. When I click "Suggest a Feature" in Outlook Pro Plus, I should be directed to an Outlook Pro Plus forum, not one for Outlook 2016.

    Why does the "Suggest a Feature" in Outlook Pro Plus open this User Voice forum for Outlook 2016?

  18. Ability to use / select multiple categories at the same time in Outlook

    It would be really useful to have the ability to select multiple Categories at the same time. Currently you can only select one at a time which means you have to go back to Categories selection to select another category. Most frustrating

  19. Customize rooms listed in the Show a room list menu in Scheduling assistant

    Please add a client feature that can show only regularly used rooms in the Show a room list menu in the right-side pane of Scheduling assistant when creating a meeting with Outlook client. It would be great if it could be done by end user instead of admins by using the client app.

  20. Clone PST folder structure from an existing PST

    I archive my files manually into a folder structure in offline PSTs. Further my PSTs are organized by business years such as 2018-H1, 2018-H2 and so forth. I do so to avoid my PSTs growing too large. I backup my older PSTs to an offline media at the change of every half year. Everytime I create a new PST, I have to create the folder structure manually. I want to simply clone a new PST folder structure based on an existing PST. The workaround method of import by setting date filters does not always work.
