  1. Option to add appointment according to availability in Outlook 2016

    When inviting users to appointments/meetings , Outlook should determine the mutual free time for everyone (and offer alternatives too).

  3. Clarification of options' descriptions on Send/Receive Group form.

    I'd like to make two suggestions about the Send/Receive Groups form's presentation:

    1. The bottom section is titled "When Outlook is Offline" (ie. Alt+S+W). To make it clearer what that actually means, I suggest that be changed to "When Outlook is set to work in Offline Mode". The existing "When Outlook is Offline" causes confusion because people think that means when the LAN or WAN (ie. Internet for most people) is down.

    2. "Include this group in send/receive (F9)" could be better understood as "Include this group in when doing a manual send/receive (ie. F9)"

  5. "Mark thread as read" similar to the "Ignore" feature in Outlook 2016

    The "Ignore" feature will delete all current and future mail that belongs to the marked thread. This new feature would have similar functionality but mark all current and future emails as "Read" for a given thread.

  6. Slide show of all pics in a message view of Outlook 2016

    When someone sends more than an image in the email, have to download them all into a folder to view it as a slide show, or for that matter even to navigate back and forth. It would be great if there is an ability to slide show and navigate back and forth between all pics without having to download them

  7. @-Mention formatting

    Love the new @-mentions idea.

    For better visual discovery on the recipient end, how about a formatting option to configure how @-mentions directed at me will appear in my reader? Maybe when I'm mentioned, I'd like to see my name in style font point size+5, lime green, bold, so that it stands out in my reader.

  8. Option to Pin Time Zones corresponding to the Event in Calendar in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Please provide an option to pin the Time Zones fields corresponding to the event or task to the Appointment Inspector window in Microsoft Outlook 2016. The time zones feature is a great way to make sure we have the right time however as of now it's an unnecessary extra step to turn them on each time.

    Or, set a recurring appointment to start at 2:00 PM every Friday (for example), and it will alert the user at 2:00PM of his/her location. Means it will alert everyone at different moments, but at the “same” local time.

  10. Option to delete events or tasks directly from To-Do bar in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Provision of deleting events or tasks directly from To-Do bar in Microsoft Outlook 2016 rather than going to the Calendar and then deleting them would be more beneficial and productive.

  18. Option to repair Microsoft Outlook 2016 by right clicking the Outlook icon in the toolbar.

    Enable the option to Repair Outlook 2016 feature by right clicking the Outlook Icon in the Toolbar. That way when the program wont load and you keep getting the processing message for quite a long time, you can just right click the icon and outlook will diagnose and repair itself.
