  1. Switch for multiple views

    It will be better if we can save multiple views with different name and switch between whenever a different view is needed.

  3. Quick step to add the recipients of a selected email to a distribution list. (in Contacts)

    running rules to organize email sometimes depends on a distribution list. to add a recipient (or more) to a distribution list is still a manual process. ex" a particular task generates several participants to send emails, because I will only receive emails from them based on this task, a rule would move them to a folder created for the task via rule based on Distribution list. I could run two quick steps, 1 to add to task distribution , then 2 to move the current email or run a particular rule now. subsequent emails would move via the rule.

  4. Categorize icon to appear when hovering over the email

    Assigning a category to an email: Instead of right clicking an email to get to the "Categorize" menu, it would be handy, if a categorize icon appeared when hovering over the email, just like a To-do Flag currently appears when hovering. A normal left click would then bring up the list of categories.

  6. Outlook application password when using 2FA

    I have noticed that Outlook 365 app does not tell a user who uses 2 step authentication on the Outlook.com to get and provide the application password and not a password of the account the user tries to add to the Outlook 365 app.
    It took me two weeks to guess this. Please add some prechecking then adding accounts having such 2FA or at least give o pop up letting the user to know that if 2FA is being used, a password not from a web login has to be provided.

  10. allow me to choose ansd save the color for the Office Theme

    Recently, MS Office decided to change the color scheme to Colorful - I have been using White color scheme for many years. I have tried to change it back to white many times. But, every time I exit and restart an application, it goes back to Colorful. Outlook should allow me to save it.

  13. In the new appointment window, make the Location button less prominent or allow it to be hidden

    The Location button on the appointment window in Outlook 365's new Simplified UX is far more prominent than it used to be, and I have mistakenly clicked it numerous times the past few weeks instead of "Save & Close" which is further off to the side.

    I frequently use appointments to time-box reminders for myself and so I can see my tasks in my calendar. These never need a location.

    If I have an appointment that requires a location, 99% of the time this will actually be a meeting, and so I will use the meeting item for this purpose.

  15. For us boomers please provide a pure black (not grey) font on white background so we can read screen. I'm struggling to read the print.

    I'm sure other Baby Boomers are having difficulties reading grey on white like I am. Not enough contract for aging eyes. Increasing font size only works on the messages but not where I file and organise messages. Seems like everything is designed these days for young folks with good vision. I can barely see this message as I type it because the print is so miniscule.

  16. Default send Address for replies and new mails

    I have a only receive Mailbox and every time when i reply to a message i must change the mail-address.

    There should be a option to set a default send mail-address for new mails and replies. Add an option for allowing you to confirm the outgoing email account when using outlook for multiple email accounts.

    There are addins for this function.
    I think this is a very crucial function and i don't want to install 3rd party add-ins because of this. Please add this as default function to Outlook 2016.

  20. I absolutely hate the black pop-up boxes in lower right of the screen for meetings, connections, etc. Terribly disruptive!

    Please provide a way to eliminate the black popup boxes in the lower right that give meeting reminders, email arrivals, connections, etc. Very disruptive to work.
