  1. Add a Follow-ups only view to Navigation options in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    I'm forever flagging items for follow-up, but Outlook doesn't provide a good view of these, something simple and effective to view. In the navigation options where there is a mail, calendar, tasks, or people view, why don't we add a 'Follow-up' view as well? I think it deserves being separated out and should be considered by means of integration with Tasks, and dare I say better integration with the application To-Do. Time this all became one straight forward view.

  4. syncronise/backup/restore of potentially all outlook config and settings

    There should be more ways to backup and restore settings between Outlook installations. Having to enter several accounts and user config settings manually into a newly installed Outlook implementation is a pain. For a program of this age I would have though Microsoft would have implemented something by now.
    1. Backup of selectable config and account settings to a file.
    or
    2. Synchronise selectable config and account settings via users Microsoft acccount.

  5. EXPLORER - it would be great to color code the files in Outlook 2016

    It would be great to be able to color code the files so when I pull up Explorer, my eyes will go directly to the color I want. I would use it as a sorting/identifier tool.

  6. FONT

    The font setting is not wokring properly in Office 365 for Mac. Everytime i change the default font on my replies, it does not save. But chaning the font preference on New and Plain Text the font will save. As soon as I reply to an email, the font goes back to the default (Calibri). Please fix this! It's really annoying having to change my font everytime I reply to an email!

  7. Don't change settings without asking

    I missed important emails because Outlook automatically shuffled my inbox into Focused and Other.
    My idea is: Don't do that again.

  8. Out Of Office in Outlook 2016

    If several accounts (e-mail) are in Outlook, it would be great if you could Install an Out of Office reply (different) for EACH of the accounts (e-mail addresses). It also refers to inclusion of POP, IMAP and Exchange based accounts. We can further enhance this feature to include Out Of Office for group emails or emails containing distribution lists.

  10. Change "Delete" and "Delete all" to "Delete folder" and "Delete all mail"

    "Delete" and "Delete all" for deleting folder and mail in folder is terse and unclear, change it to "Delete folder" and "Delete all mail". Providing an option to delete emails in a particular folder by Date Range or Month Range would increase productivity. I have 276,640 emails dating back to 2006, Having a feature that would delete all emails from 2006 based on dates, would be great.

  11. Provide a feature or an option to search when in the Outlook Options window in Microsoft Outlook 2016.

    Provide a feature or an option to search when in the Outlook Options window in Microsoft Outlook 2016. Adding a search bar when in settings would help as there are so many options, which is great! But finding something specific takes time.

  13. Keyboard ABNT2 (Brazil) + American keyboard shortcuts

    If feasible, I'd like to merge the keyboard ABNT2 layout (Brazil) to the american shortcuts as "th", "nd", "rd" and "st". I have to reply some emails in Portuguese, others in English and everytime when I am writing in English, I have to change the language in the review section to turn on the "th" and similars - it's not so cool, it should format automatically, regardless the priority language, right? Is there something useful to quick set this on the Outlook?

  14. Allow all new features to be personalized

    New features that are in Outlook 2016 should be able to be disabled if not needed. Specifically the "Tell me what you want to do" tab. This feature is more annoying that helpful and there is apparently not an option to remove this tab from the ribbon.

  18. Make feature folders optional

    Please Microsoft, make folders like Conversation history, Groups and RSS folders and Archive optional in Outlook 365!
    I have enough problems fitting in the folders I need for everyday use in the Folder Pane.
    • We’re not using Skype at all and have no intention to do so
    • We are a small company and don’t need any Group features
    • I don’t have any subscriptions or follow any blogs etc. that I need constantly updated through RSS.
    • We use regularly archiving to pst-files and have no use for an Archive folder.

    We communicate daily with suppliers, customers and…

  20. Option to not Track formatting changes in track changes and automatic in journal in Outlook 2016

    When using Track Changes, please provide an option where we can Turn Off or Disable tracking "formatting changes" permanently.

    Most of us do not need or want to track formatting changes and it just gets in the way.

    Also, please turn on automatic tracking of MS Office documents in Journal!!!! I’ve used this feature to prepare my weekly time sheets at my job. I don’t know what I’m going to do now.
