  1. May we please have a feature that allows you to quickly and easily view RSVP's to a calendar invite

    When you hover your cursor over the invite on the calendar, I think the RSVP's should be visible. It could either be a cross/tick next to the initial of the individual invited or it could show the initials of only those that have accepted the invite.

    There could also be a more detailed RSVP list when you double click the meeting, the side bar should have the list of RSVP's.

    NB: I use the Outlook desktop app but i think it should be a feature on the online and mobile app versions too.

  2. Feedback should take a picture of the app, not the whole desktop

    Why, when submitting feedback, does Outlook take a screenshot of my entire desktop instead of just the app itself like other office apps? When I submit feedback for Word or Excel, their screenshot is only of the app in question - not my entire desktop. Th

  3. Right-click Context Menu on the Layout\ToDo\Calendar

    Take action on meetings from the ToDo\Calendar rather opening it. Like a Right-click menu action items straight from there to accept/reject/delete options.

  4. scheduling with waitlist ability

    Schedule a meeting with limited capacity, and take first XX responders, and the remainder transferred to waiting list, and notified of waitlist status. I would love to hear that you can set a "size " or capacity for a meeting and automatically flag the responses post capacity limit, as waitlist and send an automatically generated response informing them of their wait list status, for both regular and skype meetings.

  6. Placing a timer on emails to remind to chase/follow up

    Place a timer on sent emails, if no response has happened within a set timeframe it sends a notification to your inbox, or a message window to remind you to follow/chase up.

    Useful for both internal comms and following up customers/suppliers

    this could be a 1hr reminder right through to a 2 day reminder, however you want to set it but it means you'll never send an email and forget to follow up any more

  7. 8 second lag in email transmission for opportunity to change mind and not send

    Before transmission is complete--give opportunity to undo sent mail>>>changed my mind-- do not send after all button. Not the same as RECALL. This would be an opportunity before it is sent to anyone.

    Perhaps an 8 second lag to pull out before transmission is complete. Sometimes, we regret hitting the send button seconds after sending.

  10. Record audio while composing a new mail

    Similar to MS Office PowerPoint feature, add an option to record audio directly into a new mail. Currently we have option only to browse and upload an object (eg audio file).

  13. Allow splitting out your own calendar in side by side mode

    I get the option to split someone else's calendar out in side by side mode but I can't split out my own calendar.

    Ideally I'd like to split out multiple other calendars to the right side and overlay them and then have my calendar by itself on the left side

  14. Allow scheduled phone calls within calendar

    With this 'new' way of working due to Covid and all of our communications being done remotely I have been relying on technology more and more for my work days. I love that I can schedule Team and Zoom meetings straight from the meeting/appointment tab but it would also be nice to be able to schedule a telephone call within this as well. With the MyAnalytics functionality it would allow for a more accurate representation of our time.

  16. Mark all earlier emails in a conversation as read when answering the latest

    When having long conversations with multiple emails it would be great if all emails in the conversations get marked as Read when answering the latest email.

  19. Mute button

    Please install the possibility for a "mute" button so I don't have to close my inbox but don't have to see notifications temporarily. I don't want to set timers, just click a simple button to mute my notifications.
