  3. Alert me two hours before a meeting I organized if someone has not responded

    I have to remember to check before a meeting to make sure everyone I responded -- and even that takes several clicks. Check for me two hours before and alert me if someone has not responded so I can reach out. Maybe send me a list of the attendee status of everyone invited.

  5. The Reply-To adress is automatically set accordingly to the email signature selected

    I work in different roles for my school (for example in a Team for organizing science competition).
    I have created different signatures for these roles. There are also different email-adresses associated with these roles (in the example the Office 365 group adress of our Organizing Team).
    At the moment, I have to manually change the Reply-To adress to the Office 365 group adress, if I want a reply to be automatically sent to the whole goup and not just to me, so that my collaborators can react to it.

    So a nice feature would be that when creating a new…

  12. Allow user to define top result criteria, i.e. Specific Customer, Topic, and/or keyword.

    Allow user to define top result criteria, i.e. Specific Customer, Topic, and/or keyword. This would aid me in searching by my specific need for top results.

    The current top results does not meet my needs in any manner and I have turned it off.

  13. Autosuggest a vacant room

    I work at a site with approx. 2000 people in the same couple of buildings. A common routine for me is to schedule a meeting room is to add the people to invite and then add the nearest building number and add like 20 meeting rooms, pick schedule assistant and find a room that is vacant. I suggest that my outlook history is used to identify rooms I have previously booked with the same people and suggest the top 3 rooms that are vacant for the period I suggest. I sometimes meet with the same people in several locations so…

  14. Appointments to include Teams link automatically.

    Provide option to always add a Teams link to meeting appointments.
    The default would be Teams link included with the option to remove the Teams link.
    This could be provided as a user setting allowing the user to select the default behaviour.

  19. Ability to add attendee(s) to a portion of a meeting

    For meetings where attendees aren't required for the whole time it would be nice to be able to manipulate one meeting invitation rather than scheduling several or what have you. One meeting could be scheduled for the total time. There would be no difference for attendees required for the entire time. However, for those needed for only a portion of the time that could be specified by attendee. Example- meeting is from 2-4 but I only need Tony Stark there from 3-4. Would be nice if using the invite that is from 2-4 Tony could be added and could be…

  20. Option to turn off ALL Outlook sounds

    There are some Outlook functions where there apparently is no way to turn off the "chime" sound (e.g., when you close an email you started but haven't sent, and many other mail and calendar functions). Muting the speaker entirely is the only option, but because many of us use Skype we need that on. What we don't need is unnecessary chimes in the background while we're working. I don't need these annoying chime sound effects - they're disruptive to me and anyone else who's nearby or on the phone with me.
