  2. Ability to copy email addresses directly from invite lists for meetings.

    It would make it much easier to internally identify people that attended meetings if you could not just copy a participant list from a meeting invite (which only shows internal usernames) but also copy participant/invitee emails from the tacking screen.

  3. Create the option to add a Conflict column/field to Views. This would make Conflicts more visible and allow resolution faster.

    I love the ability to create custom views for all of my Outlook folders and decide which columns (fields) I want shown. An important column/field that is missing from the choices of available columns in the Conflicts flag/notification.

    Let me elaborate. Sometimes, when I open a mail item, an informational notice/flag appears in the header that reads, "This is the most recent version, but you made changes to another copy. Click here to see the other versions."

    My suggestion is that that you allow me to add this notice/flag to my Views. When glancing down a list of messages, I…

  6. Replace "Reply, Reply All, Forward" or the "Discard, Pop out" buttons back to to left.

    They are now on the upper right hand corner, whereas before they were on the left.
    On large, widescreen monitors, these are never in your direct line of sight and are "hidden" out of sight in the upper right hand corner.

  7. When clicking a web-hyperlink, I would like to select the specific browser window where the link should open.

    At times, multiple browser windows are opened to organize the work I am doing. In such instances, if I can direct the links to open in a particular instance of the Browser window, that will make it more effective and efficient for me.

  8. have a feedback service that actually allows you to say what problems you are having rather than this utterly stupid system of suggesting a

    I have had several issues since being forced to upgrade to Office 365. Now I find I can't get any emails from apps where I am attemting to join, or have forgotten my password - I can't sign into zoom or enrol with new online apps. This new office is making my working life very difficult with all it's controls - that is automatic controls that remove my control. If this continues I will insist on my it comapny installing an older version of outlook. And you cna't even complain! I don't want to suggest a feature! I just want…

  9. Provide a feature to insert the date of return automatically into auto reply

    Please provide a feature to insert the returning date into automatic reply.
    We do not have to change anything besides the date after the message is written once, but if it is written in several languages, we often forget to exchange the date somewhere, because we need to change it manually in the option and in evey part of the message on both pages inside and outside of the organization. Thank you in advance.

  10. 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!

  14. Customize rooms listed in the Show a room list menu in Scheduling assistant

    Please add a client feature that can show only regularly used rooms in the Show a room list menu in the right-side pane of Scheduling assistant when creating a meeting with Outlook client. It would be great if it could be done by end user instead of admins by using the client app.

  15. 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

  16. Meeting Minutes Center Feature

    For the Meeting organizer/owner (or designees) add a feature as part of the Outlook meeting/appointment, to be able to manage the meeting minute, for example:


    • Attendance check

    • Meeting Notes

    • Action items assignment & status (that be assigned as Tasks in Outlook for the assigned Owners, received as email notifications)

    All this can be manage during the meeting, in the Meeting Minutes Center, and once the meeting is completed, just hit "Send" an automatic email will be send to all the attendees...

    Also, if somebody whats go back and look for the meeting notes, just need to look on that specific…

  17. When attachments to Outlook meetings or emails are opened, prompt user to "Save As" to avoid losing changes.

    Currently when attachments are opened, they are opened as temporary files. Any changes made to the file are LOST when you close the file, EVEN IF YOU HIT "SAVE" PRIOR TO CLOSING! When hitting "Save", MS Outlook should prompt you to "Save As", just like it does when you try to "Save" a read-only file. I just lost a ton or work thanks to this MS Office flaw.

  18. 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?

  19. Display a notification when Outlook disconnects from the server

    Often Outlook disconnects from the Microsoft Exchange server with no notification other than the easily miss-able small text in the right of the status bar. User can potentially miss lots of emails, or have sent mails stuck in the outbox as they are not made aware of the disconnection. User should be immediately notified whenever an involuntary disconnection occurs.
