  1. Provide a feature to copy an email item to Group Conversation folder via API

    Provide a feature to copy an email item to Group Conversation folder in Microsoft Outlook 2016 to get rid of the extra Distribution List folder that may be required otherwise via API. It is possible to copy mail items in own folder but there is no way to copy it to Group Conversation folder. The goal is to conserve the original headers of the mail item. When a forward is done, the header is distroyed.

  3. Preview options for dynamic distribution lists

    Add a preview option in Outlook to view members of a dynamic distribution list, its selection criteria and estimated number of recipients. Dynamic Distribution Lists are a wonderful tool, but when the users have to contact their Exchange admins to find out who would be a recipient, they lose value as people become afraid of using them not knowing you will receive the message.

  6. Add option to always BCC group members

    Groups are often used for contact lists where it is important to maintain privacy. It would be good to have an option for each group to always BCC members, even if the group is in the To field. The current scenario requires users to remember to put the group in the BCC field every time. An "always bcc" option would prevent mistakes.

  8. Show Teams Channels in Outlook Groups in Outlook 2016

    Presently, the Groups folders only shows conversations in the "General" Teams channel. Please provide functionality to display other channels and their conversations. Also provide the ability to drag/drop move/copy selected messages (single or multiple) from any folder in any store in Outlook to/from a Channel with appropriate confirmation prompts such as, "You are about to move X item(s) to/from 'Group Name/Channel Name'. Is this correct?".

  12. Use the graph to improve navigation of work done in a group of Outlook 2016

    When a group is selected, a navigation pane is shown that always shows: "Conversations, Files, Calendar, Notebook" (image : https://snag.gy/DFPkzU.jpg ) but this doesn't represent what is actually happening in the group. Sometimes groups use Teams, sometimes SharePoint, sometimes Yammer, sometimes a calendar, sometimes Planner. Microsoft Graph API is able to provide at least some insight into what components of the group is initialized, and how much work has been put into each part of a group. This should be used to power navigation of groups, so I can see where the work is happening.

  13. Improve Visibility of Group Inbox

    Many times now people in Groups have not seen my emails because they do not monitor the "Groups" inbox, and so they never see my email that I send to Groups / Teams groups.

    Recommend some way of improving visibility to this Inbox. Either duplicate the message in a user's Inbox by default. Or maybe provide a ribbon notification when a new Group message has been received.

    Regardless, there needs to be a better way to notify users of messages here as I believe most people just collapse the Groups section and never look at it.

  14. Groups Contacts feature that links with SharePoint Contacts list

    We have personal contacts associated with our Outlook profile, but we need a Groups Contacts feature that is tied/linked with a SharePoint Contacts list (like Groups Files are a SharePoint Document library). We also need the ability to drag/drop move/copy selected contacts (single/multiple) between our Outlook profile and the Groups Contact list with appropriate confirmation prompts such as, "You are about to move/copy X contact(s) to group 'Group Name'. Is this correct?".

  16. AVOIR ACCES AUX PROPRIETES DU CONTACT EN CLIQUANT SUR SA FICHE pour modifier

    actuellement c impossible, on ne peut accéder aux propriétés du contact que lorsque il apparaît dans la liste dispo à partir de groupe insérer des membres SAUF QUE il n'y apparait pas alors qu'il est enregistré de manière identique aux autres, je voudrai donc essayer de voir et corriger peut être quelque chose MAIS NON çà ne me laisse pas passer.
    DONC rendre l'accès aux contacts simple, comme cela était avec 2003 par exemple.
    Ensuite, il nous demande le type de classement que l'on veut, mais Outlook fait sa sauce, il classe par ordre alpha des prénoms, super facile pour…

  18. Allow unchecking of "Send a meeting invitation to group members" in Outlook 2016

    In Outlook on the Web, when you enter a new calendar item in a group you have the ability to uncheck "Send a meeting invitation group members". In Outlook 2016 there is not that ability and the groups we have access to with dozens and dozens of members all get spammed with calendar notifications when entering a calendar item into a group calendar using Outlook 2016.

    We would like that ability in Outlook 2016, the same that Outlook on the Web has (to uncheck "Send a meeting invitation group members").

    Thank you.

  19. Bring Back Group Contact Emails in the search email address history

    Group contacts are no longer being remembered in the last email history. Every time I send to a group I have to search for the email in my contacts list because Outlook is not remembering it any longer. Just started on 11/15/17.

  20. Cut and paste from mail groups to other mail groups

    I understand from my review of the MS knowledge base and from an online chat session that there is no way to cut/copy from one mail list/group and paste into another mail list/group. This would be a very convenient feature. Currently I have a rather large list that has been built up over time. But, it has become too large for my email software (Outlook or my ISP, I don’t know which is the limiting factor), and group emails using this group are now rejected. So I have to create two mail groups from the one. And there doesn’t seem…
