  1. Indicator for URL links within body of email

    Similar to the paperclip to denote if you have an email with an attachment, could you add something to denote that there is a url link on the email?

  2. Show Update Progress/Status

    When the software is being updated, there is no way to know whether it is still going or finished already.

    We need to close the applications to update, but have no way to be sure when we can open them.

    A notification message at the end is not enough

  3. Universal Search for Teams and Outlook

    It would be great to have a universal search box that allowed me to find all of my communication with an individual. A search box that could link me to both Microsoft Teams and Outlook results would be valuable.

  5. Allow Out of Office emails to be sent to only external email

    Currently, setting an out of office email requires that internal emails are sent, and optionally, external emails can also be sent.

    I would like to be able to set out of office emails such that external senders recieve the mail but internal do not.

  8. Have a month & year display on the mail scroll bar

    As you are dragging the scroll bar on your mail, it would be great to have a month & year shown with it. Storage has increase so much that people keep all their emails & this would make searching much faster.

  9. you need a more improved search engine for searching for contacts. Allow it to search all fields not just t.he name. Let it sort by column

    You need a more improved search engine for searching contacts. Allow it to search all fields not just the name. Let it sort by column so at least you can scan down the column to look for a contact. This feature has been horrible for a long time.

  10. Add ability to track changes and who made them to outlook items

    There is a need to track who changed items. This could be in scenarios with assistants, or in groups.

  12. Replace pinned/flagged email threads with most recent email.

    If I have an email pinned/flagged, give me the ability such that if someone replies to the email that email becomes the one that is now pinned/flagged. This will let me organize the most recent emails in any thread and keep track of individual threads.

  13. Automatic Template when e-mailing a Group

    Would be awesome if when someone e-mails a specific group, an automatic template gets populated into the New E-mail they want to compose. For example: we use e-mails for requests and it would be nice if a template was in place for our clients to uses so they don't have to remember what needs to go where.

  17. Search feature

    The current search feature, where it is located, at the top of the screen is terribly inconvenient and un-natural. I suggest to go back to where it was.
