    Thank you for your feedback. Office has hundreds of millions of people who rely on it every day to do their best work. Customers have a wide range of hardware, including displays that can’t faithfully reproduce all colors or provide good contrast so what may be clear in one device can be hard to see in another, or even the same device in a room with different lighting conditions.

    The last major update to the Office icons was in 2013, and since we’ve heard a lot from customer feedback as well as participated in emerging industry best practices for how to improve the accessibility of iconography. The new icons you see on Office 365 reflect these learnings – our intent is to balance all these diverse visual and hardware needs to provide the best experience to as many customers as possible.

    We know big visual changes can be disruptive, and…

  2. Stop prioritizing O365 for Autodiscover

    After the release of 16.0.6741.2017, the Click 2 Run (C2R) version of the Outlook client for the PC is prioritising O365 for Autodiscover queries above all other Autodiscover methods (SCP, HTTPS root domain etc).

    This causes problems for customers who aren't using O365 for mail service, especially if either of these conditions are true:

    1. The user has a mailbox in the O365 service which is not being used. This can occur if the user has inadvertently had an Exchange license assigned.
    2. The user has a personal Office subscription but has used their business email address to configure it.

    We cannot fulfil this request as we will continue to optimize for the Office 365 experience. The supported implementation of Autodiscover is documented here, https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/3211279. Any ongoing changes and improvements will be documented in the article. We appreciate your feedback and take every request with consideration, whether we can move forward with it or not.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are moving forward with Focused Inbox as the way to separate our the more important and urgent mail from the rest. We are actively working to make Focused Inbox better every day. Focused Inbox can also be tailored to individual preferences by using “Always Move to Focused” and “Always Move to Other.” Lastly, Focused Inbox can be always be turned off if it does not meet your needs.

  4. Edit Offline for SharePoint libraries synced to Outlook

    The Office team is planning to deprecate the "Edit Offline" functionality for SharePoint documents synced to Outlook. Our telemetry shows that this functionality is infrequently used, but we wanted to provide an open forum for users to provide their feedback on this change.

    We recommend you sync SharePoint libraries to your computer using the OneDrive sync client, which does let you edit offline and saves your changes to SharePoint once you go back online. Link to learn more about syncing SharePoint files with the OneDrive sync client: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Sync-SharePoint-files-with-the-new-OneDrive-sync-client-6de9ede8-5b6e-4503-80b2-6190f3354a88
