  3. Provide a selector for other products...

    Provide a selector for other products... it is not always convenient or possible to go to a specific product to submit feedback about it.

  4. Provide a feature to change the font/size in the email adress bar to read more easily the recipients in Outlook 2016

    It would be great if there would be some settings that would allow Outlook users to modify the font size in the email address bar. This way the email address of the recipient could be read more easily

  5. Provide an option of feature to track who accessed emails, made changes to emails and calendars in Microsoft Outlook 2016.

    Provide an option of feature to track who accessed emails, made changes to emails and calendars in Microsoft Outlook 2016.

    In a large business, with multiple administrators accessing email inboxes, it would be incredibly beneficial to have a way of being able to check for footprints of who has accessed an email and what they have done with it. For example, if a user was to archive an email, there could be a history icon that gives you an audit trail. This would help identify instances of users deleting, moving or archiving emails either mistakenly or deliberately without dealing with…

  7. Print option on email chains to print in date ascending order

    Add an option to print an email chain in date ascending order. It would be great to print a long chain and follow it from beginning to end.

  10. Dock able Modules in Outlook 2016

    There is a usability issue due to the fact that you can only see one list at a time in Outlook, (email, contacts, to-do, calendar, etc.) There's the ability to "pop out" an email message so that you can look at your calendar while composing a message, but that's kind of clunky. I propose a feature where you can pop out any of the list modules (such as calendar) so that one can easily work between the two.

    Adobe does this in their pro software by being able to "dock" windows within the interface window or "float" them elsewhere, including…

  14. Category list needs to be easier to view/access without using a pop-up box

    The menu displays all category list options in OWA and on the Mac app, but not in Windows/desktop app. Why?! I hate opening up a pop-up box to scroll down and select a category. The list needs to be available in the menu, and it should be searchable. It's like you see the benefit in two interfaces but not in the third one. Makes no sense.

  16. Show meeting history report in past Skype for Biz meetings in Outlook

    When viewing a Skype for Business meeting request e-mail or the meeting itself in Outlook, it would be great if you could get some historical report on that meeting.

    e.g.


    • Meeting started at: ....


    • Meeting ended at: .... (60 mins total)



    • Attendees included:


      • John doe (34 mins)

      • Jane doe (49 mins)

      • Martin Lawrence (48 mins)

      • Bob Stakeholder (60 mins)



    Maybe even some stats:


    • Meeting primarily led by: Bob Stakeholder


    • Loudest participant: Martin Lawrence

  17. Add a button for 'About' to the help menu.

    Some engineer allowed a UI manager to remove the About item from the help menu in some current version of Outlook. [I can't tell which version because the About option has been removed.]
    This engineer (and their manager) need to be take on onto an nearby quad and publicly flogged, as an example to other teams that might break longstanding UI conventions.

  18. Enable a user to import or export a custom forms and not just a template in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Custom forms allow organizations to customize the data collected by users when scheduling appointments or generating and sending messages. Outllok currently saves these forms in the users .dat file and does not allow for import and exporting of the forms, Administrators who want to use a custom form need to recerwat it for each user creating a consistency issue.
    By allowing import and export administrators could design forms that organizations could use to capture specific data when necessary steamlining their communication when needed forspecific messages and meetings.

  19. Enable NFC beaming to open email on Outlook

    NFC beaming should enable users using Outlook app on their phones to open the same email on their Office Outlook application on their PC device seamlessly. This can be particularly useful for professionals reading an email on their phones to seamlessly display the same email on their PCs when they hold their phones at the NFC receivers on the PC. It would become a popular timesaver feature.

  20. Please add scanning printed receipts features.

    Add an app in O365 now that you've added scanning of receipts to the mobile version of Outlook that can store and categorize receipts (like Expensify or ReceiptBank) for tax or office expense reports.
