    Thank you for all your feedback. We heard you and now for Office 365 Subscribers on Current Channel, when you use the attach file command, local files will be automatically added as attachments. Files stored in the cloud will come with a dialog that ask you whether you would prefer to add as an attachment or share as a link. In Options, we also added a toggle to remember your preference if you would like to always add as an attachment.

    The new “End Meetings Early” options are now available in Outlook for Windows, for Monthly channel customers with an Office365 subscription.

    After users upgrade to Version 1812, they can view the Outlook’s Options dialog and find the new options under the Calendar tab. This version was released January 2019.

  3. Lag in typing while composing emails in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    There is a lag when typing new emails in Outlook 2016 (Windows 10 64 bit). This does not happen in web browsers/other office applications.

  4. Option of third time zone for viewing calendars or

    Option to add a third time zone option for viewing Calendars in Microsoft Outlook 2016 or provide Timezone swap button on the ribbon. Right now, to swap timezones, you need to go to options calendar timezone swap. It would be great to have a button in the ribbon, where this can be done with 1 click. Also, there is no way to customize the ribbon to do the timezone swap as a button, everything Ive read is a VBA\VBS script that needs to be written to do this. Also it is handy when you travel a lot and you want…

    Thank you again for your feedback!

  5. Default Zoom settings for all emails

    Ability to set the default zoom level for all messages being read without having to change it for each individual message. Also a feature to allow zoom to work on the whole outlook window not just on the reading pane would be beneficial.

    Thank you all so much for the feedback. With the latest monthly update of Office, we are shipping a setting to maintain the level of zoom from email to email. To get to the dialog, the easiest way is to click on the % zoom level button in the bottom right of the Outlook app. Please try it out and let us know how it goes. Thank you.

    Documentation is available here: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/zoom-and-stick-56c090bc-e148-44a7-bd06-1290edd38983?ui=en-US&rs=en-US&ad=US

  6. Save attachment to weblocation,onedrive (as used in Word 2016)

    Please add the option to save an attachment from outlook to onedrive. This should be similar to the option in Word 2016, where you can save to weblocations / onedrive.

  7. Alarm when writing 'see attached' but forget to attach

    When sending someone an email writing 'see attached for..', it sometimes happens you forget to actually attach. I need an alarm when I send my mail that says ''We see you're writing 'see attached' but there is no attachement. Do you still want to send your email?''. Just as you get an alarm when you send someone an email without a subject.

  8. When an item is deleted, mark it as read

    I often click the X to delete an email from the list without reading it (I know it is junk). It then goes to the Deleted folder but stays unread. This messes with my search folders that look for unread emails.

    This new option is now available for Office 365 ProPlus and Office 365 Business customers on the Monthly Channel who upgrade to Version 1803 (Build 9126.2116).

    From Outlook, you can turn this on using File > Options > Mail. Look for the “Other” section and check the box next to “Mark messages as read when deleted”.

    We will eventually support this new option for all subscription customers using Office 365 ProPlus, or any of our Office 365 business and enterprise products. For customers on the Semi Annual Channel, this new option will be included in the next major update. There are no plans to backport to older versions of Outlook.

    Thanks again for your feedback!

  9. Putting a Folder Between Two Other Folders; Rearranging Folders Non-Alphabetically; Ability to Make a Sub-Folder into a Main Folder

    I have three suggestions that should be implemented on Outlook ASAP.

    First, there absolutely needs to be a way to insert a new folder, or move a current folder in between two other folders without causing it to become a sub-folder. It's mind-boggling that this has not been done yet.

    Second, there should be a way to rearrange all of one's folders (or sub-folders within a folder) in more ways than just alphabetically. (Chronologically, by size, by priority shown via rankings, etc.)

    Third, there should be some way for sub-folders to be dragged out and made back into their own…

  10. PLEASE update the Business Contact Manager for Outlook 2016

    I've been using the BCM for years and, while it works OK with Outlook 2013, I would REALLY like to use the current version of Outlook. Absent that, do you know of an alternative Contact Manager for Outlook 2016? All I really want to do is see history of my interaction with an individual contact all in one place. THANKS
