  1. Emails should have 1/thumbs-up/like button

    It would often be VERY useful (and could reduce unnecessary ACK responses) if Outlook desktop client allowed users to add quick responses to received mails via 1/thumbs-up/like/dislike/etc.

    ... just like in Facebook, Twitter, Insta, Snapchat, Teams,etc.

  3. Calendar Meeting Info Lock or Permissons, and Read Only, no copy or paste of info.

    Calendar Meeting Info Lock or Permissions Security. Read Only, no copy or paste of info. Have users that don't Accept meeting, they copy the info and some how create a new meeting invite of their own, that messes up the chain of invites.

  4. Mark an email like "Awaiting response" when it's sent

    This will allow us to remember which emails we are waiting for to be answered, and track them from the same email.

  5. Confirmation on more than X users on CC

    I think Outlook should ask for confirmation when a email is sent to more than five recipients on CC. It is very usual for Outlook users to make mistakes for distribution mails and put the recipient list in Carbon Copy instead of Blind Carbon Copy with the breach on Data Protection laws that this supposes.

  8. When replying to an email, warn us if there's another response (already or in the making) and the ability to merge if there is one.

    It is quite irksome when conversation gets lost when a response diverges the conversation.
    Before sending a response, prompt users when there's already a response if someone else, responding to the same conversation, has already clicked the send button on their response plus give an opportunity to copy over my latest response as to the latest email.

  9. Outlook "To, CC & BCC" field should highlight any email address if entered more than once.

    While sending an email, we sometimes have an unusually large number of recipients. In the "To, CC and BCC" fields, Outlook should highlight any email address that is being repeated in the same email's "To, CC or BCC" fields.

  10. Working from home option - Calendar

    It would be great to be able to show working from home in Calendar. However it needs to be also shown as 'free' so meetings can be booked normally. This will allow visibility to all persons who can see your calendar. They will know whether to book a Teams or face to face meeting for example

  11. Provide a Warning when the Outlook file becomes too large

    Dependend on the amount of system memory the outlook pst file may become too large. After that outlook is stuck. So, a warning which relates the size of the PST file to the amount of available memory is needed.

  15. Colour the favourites section for mailboxes - allow us to choose the background colour

    Colour the favourites section for mailboxes - allow us to choose the background colour for each item added into the favourites section - this enables the user to quickly scan mailboxes rather than all of them and picking the wrong one

  16. "Work offline" switch when activated the text on it should change to "Work online"

    "Work offline" switch when activated the text on it should change to "Work online"
    This will help me save from clicking on "Work Offline" again, even though i am already offline and trying to get online now.

  17. Allow setting a Custom workweek in Outlook options

    In Outlook, currently the Workweek function allows setting one range of times for the workweek. E.g. Mon-Fri 9am-5pm

    Many workers have a customize schedule especially in software, where workers may have different schedules for different days but are recurring.

    Feature request: Allow customizing the workweek setting:
    E.g. Monday -Thursday 9-5. Friday 7-3 is one example.

    Use cases:
    Then employees would know your schedule. They won't schedule meetings outside of your work range.

    This should be implemented in Office365 Outlook/Teams and throughout

  18. Create a pre-meeting for sender to provide data for meeting

    When calendaring a meeting, sometimes you need a reminder 1 or 2 days before to provide certain data for a meeting. If a quarterly meeting is set, I would like a pre-meeting for prepare for meeting. (sender only)

  19. Redirect email button for misdirected emails

    I'm in a large organization where there is typically at least one person that shares a name with me. I occasionally get emails intended for the other person. If I simply add the likely intended recipient, I'm still on the email thread. I'm still open to receiving mails via Reply All as I need to be explicitly removed by one of the other people on the thread in their reply. A redirect button that effectively allows me to replace myself from the intended recipient would be useful in these situations.

    There is similar feature request already made which is effectively…

  20. Store searches using keyword sent: in the list of recommended searches

    I often search for e-mails that I sent or received on a certain date. For that purpose I am using the German keyword "gesendet: <date>", probably "sent: <date>" in Englisch.
    In earlier versions of Outlook, this type of search appeared in a list of my recent searches, but now it is completely gone. All I have left is a list "Vorgeschlagene Suchen" (probably "Recommended Searches) which does not contain my previous entries. So the current list is more or less useless for my purpose
