  2. Provide or add a feature to send Group Calendar event to invite selected attendee instead of to send to all members of the group

    Provide or add a feature to send Group Calendar event to invite selected attendee instead of to send to all members of the group in Microsoft Outlook 2016.

    O365 Group Calendar -> Invite Attendees -> click to plus sign to remove some user from TO -> send event to selected user.

  3. 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…

  4. Provide an option to delete a thread in conversation in the Outlook Groups in Outlook 2016

    it would be great if we can delete a thread in conversation in Outlook Groups. Not just the whole conversation. This can be done on web access.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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…

  8. Group messages: have a feature to mark who has replied to the message and who hasn't so that you can track who you still need an answer from

    group messages: when you send a group message, have a feature to mark who has replied to the message and who hasn't so that you can track who you still need an answer from.

  10. Sort Groups messages the same order as the rest of the email

    It is really confusing to have email sorted by newest first, and groups to be sorted by newest last. Please at least make it configurable, and consider make it the default. It is bad enough that email isn't ordered the same way on different devices.

  12. Add ability to edit distribution lists inside Outlook 16.x for Mac

    If I want to edit a distribution list in Outlook for Mac, I need to open Outlook Web Access (owa) to manage the group. Distribution list maintenance is a daily activity in a company, seems like it's high time this was made super-easy and put into the Outlook client natively.

  13. Numbering option for contacts in a contact group.

    Please make a"contact group" number the contacts in it. My internet provider limits the number of contacts to 100 per email. It is time consuming to have to count each contact group. As my contact groups have new people joining and old people asking to get off them it is difficult to keep track of how many contacts are in each group. Also increase the number of member allowed in a Contact Group. The maximum number should be at least as large as the Recipient Limit for Office 365 Business Essentials (500 recipients).

  14. Just let me move the Groups somewhere besides the very bottom!

    I don't use the search folders, "scheduled", RSS subscriptions (really?) or conversation history. I rarely look at the outbox. I can move every other folder up or down the list. Why can't I move the groups folder as well? I bet you had to devise some extra code just to make it do that and keep it from acting like the other folders. Just eliminate that code and let it be placed where we want it please.

  15. Turn off message preview window in Groups

    I do not understand why Groups are treated differently than the Inbox. For security purposes, I would like to remove the message preview window, but there is no option.

  17. Create email subfolders in Office 365 Groups

    We currently use (mail enabled) Public Folders together with distribution lists to stora all project communication and notify all members.

    The new Office 365 Groups would offer similar functionality, however we are missing ability to create subfolders in Group mailbox to organise the mailbox.

    For example:
    Group "Project X" displays in Outlook as:

    Groups
    >Project X

    Which we would like to organise as following:

    Groups
    > Project X
    >>Client
    >>Subvendors
    >>Internal

    This would also require ability to drag and drop emails inside Group mailbox.

  19. Improve Ordering Function of Groups in Favorites

    Currently when reordering Groups in the Favorites pane via drag and drop it appears there is no ability to drop a Group between two Groups, but only to top of list. Drag and drop reordering of groups should allow ability to drop a Group between two Groups.

  20. Group inbox

    Associate a dedicated Group inbox (like in SharePoint), which we could Cc or Bcc for each email that could interest the Group.
