  5. When I click "Suggest a Feature" in Outlook Pro Plus, I should be directed to an Outlook Pro Plus forum, not one for Outlook 2016.

    Why does the "Suggest a Feature" in Outlook Pro Plus open this User Voice forum for Outlook 2016?

  6. Using Artificial Intelligence in Outlook.

    Hello,

    Is it possible to automate mail transport operations with artificial intelligence and create learning infrastructure in Outlook?

    I'm talking about something other than basic rule-making.

    We want to see Artificial Intelligence on the outlook application.

    There is no study on artificial intelligence in end-user products.

  7. Ability to subcategories of categories.

    There is no option for subcategories of categories. If we have over 2000 tasks, so there is a huge need for this feature.
    For example, currently we have the following categories in the list: shopping books, shopping food, shopping sports...
    It would be great to have the MAIN CATEGORY "shopping" and then the SUBCATEGORIES "books, food, sports..."

  8. Please create a window that pops up when I close outlook that advises me how many open emails there are.

    Please create a window that appears when I close Outlook that advises me how many open emails I have. Sometimes, I accidentally close Outlook when I meant to close just one open email. The result is that all my open emails are closed that I have saved to read later. This is very frustrating.

    Thank you - Michael Winer

  13. Wish there was an "For your awareness" rather than "cc"--

    I wish there was an option for addressees/invitees on email and calendar items that was "For Your Awareness" rather than "cc" indicating they are not expected to respond or attend, but for those situations when they need to be aware....the optional and required options are not as explicit

  14. uncancel a meeting request

    It would be great if we had a way to "uncanel" a meeting request that was cancelled if you are the facilitator. Accidents do happen!

  15. Outlook Archiving Tool needs user-selectable functionality

    The Archive tool has two operational problems as far as I’m concerned:

    • It uses Modified Date rather than Sent/Received Date as the selection criterion and
    • It doesn’t Archive Flagged messages

    While these attributes might be desirable for some users, my researches suggest that there are many users who disagree.
    I would like to see user selectable options for archiving criteria.

  16. Finally support aliases in your apps!

    18 months down the line now and still no resolution to this, despite the article explicitly saying "we are actively working on a fix". Any update?
    https://support.office.com/en-us/article/outlook-com-email-account-appears-as-outlook-long-series-of-letters-and-numbers-outlook-com-in-outlook-for-windows-90ed7938-7f21-4cb5-a69d-a3b79ea4eafd
    Flagship product and it cannot even do this basic function a year after article was written and 2 years after first reports. The free Win 10 email client does it. Even the iOS integrated mail client does! Not Outlook for iOS...the one built into iOS. Up the game MS. A new version of Office has been released in the meantime.

  18. Add special characters in the "Categorize" section for color blind people.

    There should be special characters that would allow you to organize your inbox like there is colors in the categorize feature for color blind people. Instead of choosing a color to have as a banner across the email it could display dots, forward slash, back slash, etc.

    For all Outlook windows that display an outlook item (i.e. editing and reminder windows), include a field to display the account and folder the item belongs to. This is required for users whose outlook profile contains multiple accounts.

  20. Transparent Updates

    Stop stealth updates. Your last update broke appointments, TELL us when you are going to apply an update, WHAT is in the update, and allow us to ROLL BACK if things get broken. So much time and frustration chasing a problem only to find out you updated things, changed or broke the way they work, and didn't tell anyone.
