  3. meeting timer

    It would be great for meeting attendees to view a countdown timer in both Outlook meeting invites regardless of whether or not the meetings are in Teams. Time is extremley precious these days. As well as At some point people are going to be back in conf. room meetings while some people are meeting from home.

  5. Recurring Automatic Replies

    For service type mailboxes, we need to add an automatic replies every evening to advise that the department is closed until the next morning. We can disable this automatically but we cannot enable these automatically. It would be good if we could set a recurring automatic replies to turn on every day at a certain time.

  8. Require Toll free call in number in Teams meeting invite

    when we initiate an online meeting through Skype we get Toll free call in number, with this users will be able to attend the call through mobile when they are aware from desktop/laptop.
    The same feature does not seems to be available in Teams meeting invite, can this be made available in Teams meeting invite (Toll Free call in number with conference ID).

  9. Please add an archive button next to the trash can button in the message list.

    Please add an archive button next to the trash can button in the message list. The archive button is at the bottom of the list when I right click on a message, but it would be less clicks to have it in the message list entry next to the trash can button. This would be similar to the ability to archive messages by swiping in the outlook mobile app.

  11. Allow a setting to automatically record a meeting or series.

    When creating a meeting or series, I'd like the option to record the meeting so I don't have to remember to start the recording when the meeting starts.

  13. Reminders for assignee in assigned recurring tasks

    For recurring tasks that are assigned it would make things easier if reminders for each occurence could be enabled for the assignee. This type of functionality would reduce the need for sending manual emails requesting someone to complete a task.

  14. Add a Right Menu Action to Open Cloud files in Desktop Apps

    While opening Cloud files on browser seems is okay, sometimes, I want to open files for heavy editing which the Office Web Apps don't support, allow an option to 'Open in Desktop App' directly from Outlook so that I can skip that additional step.

  15. Sign-In Sheet or Attendance - Be able to Export Invite List to Excel

    Many larger meetings require one to take attendance and would be great if there was a feature that you could use that allowed you to actually know who was in attendance, not just who RSVP'd.

    Being able to export invite list to excel so you can create a sign in sheet (maybe it partners with Word and use Sign-in Sheet Templates).

    Digitally check people in. And that way you have a digital record who came and also for future correspondence you could use the "Respond to Attendees" and you could choose the option "Only send to those that attended"

  16. Show user profile icon on the Outlook client calendar

    In the previous Outlook client, we can view users image icons when adding them as attendees in the event creation window, but currently we are not able to see their icons. I would prefer viewing user icons on the event creation page like the previous version.

  19. Allow sharing of To-Do List in Task

    Allow sharing of "To-Do List". I can create a new folder and share it. The task in the new folder show up in the To-Do List folder. I would like the option to share my To-Do List folder, so that the person I am sharing my To-Do List folder can see all my task and due dates.

  20. Can the view of calendar items shown as free be minimized?

    It would be helpful to minimize the view of "free" calendar items. That would give more space to other entries while still keeping most important information on free items.
