  1. Insert SnippingTool images directly to Outlook

    I would be great if I start a new mail message and under the ribbon 'Add Element' there would be a item 'Add from SnippingTool', and I can add images from SnippingTool directly in to my mail body or as attachment.

  4. Auto-hide To Do Bar

    I love the To Do Bar but would love it even more if you could auto-hide it like the Windows taskbar and it could expand automatically when you moused to that edge, or pressed a hotkey.

  5. Implement OWA Move to Folder in Win32

    The Move to Folder experience in OWA seems better than the one in Win32. You have the list of recents, but you can also just start typing the name of a folder and it presents.

    In Win32 if the folder is a sub of a collapsed folder typing the name fails

  9. Allow accepting partial time frames of a meeting

    Users should be able to accept only partial time frames of a meeting. If a user has a 30min meeting they have to be at and someone sends an invite for a 1hr meeting at the same time they should be able to accept the 30min they can make. This would let the organizer know they can only attend part and structure the meeting agenda accordingly.

  10. Tracking tasks/projects when you send

    Some way of tracking tasks/projects when you send. rather than individual emails coming back and having to track. If you send an email or a new format of say a Task Email as they complete they can click done or something and there is a running total of who has completed it and when.

  11. Show folders with unread messages at the top of the list

    Allow user to sort folders so that folders with unread email appear before folders with no unread email. Alternatively, create a "Smart Favorites" setting that lets me choose whether a Favorite folder should always be shown in the Favorites section or only if it contains unread email.

    I have a lot of rules that filter bulk email into folders, but then sometimes I forget to scroll down to see new unread email.

  12. Outlook New Meeting Location - Easy autocomplete previous Geolocation used

    Previous Office updates allow users to be able to select the new meeting location's history, sort of like an autocomplete feature where in users can use the up-and-down keys on their keyboard to select the previously used location for their past meeting when creating a new event in Outlook calendar. Since organization don't user Resource mailbox (Rooms), we relay on the Geolocation search. Now that users are in Office 365 Apps for Business version 2006 - with Windows 10 version 2004 build, this feature is no longer available.

  15. Include email attachments onto meeting invitations when using the "Reply with a Meeting" function.

    It's inefficient to have to keep dragging attachments into meetings created in response to an email.

  16. Display warning prior to moving an appointment on calendar

  20. Dark mode to match system mode.

    There needs to be a way to automatically change the theme of Office apps based on what the global Windows theme is set to (light or dark). When dark mode is enabled on Windows, it is very unpleasant to have a bright white background on Office apps. Having it synced to the system-wide global setting will eliminate the hassle of switching the Office theme everyday manually.
