  1. Stop treating the use of a Teams link in a meeting as a change to the meeting

    Currently, if someone creates a Teams meeting link in a meeting and an attendee clicks the link to join the meeting, the meeting treats this as a change to the meeting. When you go to close any meeting window after joining via the teams link, Outlook creates a dialog box asking if you want to save changes. This just serves as a completely unnecessary additional click anytime I want to close a meeting. Please stop the use of a link being logged as a change to the meeting. It's quite annoying!

  3. Provide an option to change the default pane that Outlook opens on (e.g., change default from Email to Calendar)

    I spend a lot of time randomized by email, so I've started scheduling two 30-minute blocks to check email every day. However, Outlook still opens on Email by default, which can be distracting if I'm just trying to check my Calendar. Being able to set the default pane to the Calendar would help me stay focused and productive.

  4. Provide a feature to send multiple Out-Of-Office messages to the same sender in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Currently Office will send only one out of office message to each sender. Senders usually don't remember the period of absence, so if it is longer than usual they will send messages again, will not receive autoreply, and will believe that I am in the office but ignoring them. There should be an option to choose if you wish to send out of office in reply to more than 1 message from a given sender.

  5. Please implement the. NST document to set the default path

    Hi all, Most of the emails we manage have to join and subscribe to multiple groups because of their work needs, Generated. NST documents stored in the C disk directory will produce more than 20G of occupation, and we use for some of our colleagues to use the cloud system, C disk space itself is not too large, if you can not move to custom directories, such as: When setting up messages by default to the D disk, or we really do not, or even use the modified registry to achieve storage location more Change.

  6. The product is office 2019 and outlook is denying access from other programs trying to send emails and keeps asking permission.

    The product is office 2019 and outlook is denying access from other programs trying to send emails ( Recon Accounts in my instance ) and keeps asking for permission. It Says " A program is trying to send an email message on your behalf. If this is unexpected, click Deny and verify your antivirus software is up-to-date ." it needs an option for when we say allow, we need it to say remember and never ask me again.

  10. Provide a feature to enable notifications on the active device only in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Provide a feature to enable notifications on the active device only in Microsoft Outlook 2016 to avoid multiple devices receiving notifications for the same account.

    If I'm using Outlook on my PC and I receive a new email, I don't need my phone going off in my pocket about it. Similar to functionality in Teams.

  17. Allow Tabs for opening multiple folders; and then allow draging items (mail, cal, contacts, etc) to the tabs as you would a folder

    Allow Tabs for opening multiple folders; and then allow draging items (mail, cal, contacts, etc) to the tabs as you would a folder.

    Tabs would be at the top; and then if you wanted to drag an item like an email; if you dragged it to the tab; it would be as if you dragged it to that folder.

  18. Fix Automatic Replies from Changing Pasted Text to Images

    Currently if you paste text from OneNote into Outlook's Automatic Replies text box, it will paste the text as an image file instead of text. Please fix this bug to make Microsoft products work better together! Currently you have to paste text from OneNote to Notepad and again to Outlook to prevent this.
