  1. Outlook calendar event reminders sent via text message to cell phone.

    On an older version of Outlook at work, I was able to set up so reminder texts on calendar items were sent to a text number that I provide, my cell phone. The same reminder that shows on the desk top is also texted to my cell phone number witch I had set up somewhere in settings for Outlook. It does not appear to be an available option at this timer.

  2. Ability to send invites to new attendees only

    Where I add attendees to a meeting request, I want to send the invite to ONLY them and not resend it to all the attendees previously invited (previous functionality "send update only")

  3. Edit Font in Quick Steps

    It would be useful to be able to change the default font in quick steps or have it set to a users default font for Outlook.

  4. Delivery and Read receipts

    Instead of sending a separate message (and clogging inbox) for delivery and read receipts, can something similar to Whatsapp be implemented in the sent messages i.e. one tick for delivered and two for read?

  8. Calendar docked along bottom of Mail (Inbox)

    Enable calendar to appear along bottom "Mail" tab. similar to the "scheduling assistant" view you get when booking a meeting with multiple people. This would save screen real estate vs the large "Calendar To-Do" bar, while enabling you to have a quick view of whats upcoming, without needing to go to the Calendar tab.

  14. A series of recurring past appointments should not be changed just because I change the end date or the number of appointments.

    Calendar is always full of recurring appointments. Often my clients need to change a single appointment to another day or to cancel it completely. They nearly always have a set amount of weeks in which their training lasts. Therefore, if a lesson is cancelled in advance, the total amount of appointments must remain the same but only the end date changes. Whenever I try to change the end date, the whole series must be reset and then past changes (such as changing a single appointment from a Tuesday to a Thursday) will be lost. Also, if I need to change…

  15. Option to save/export list of cached email IDs

    There are 1000s of email IDs in my Outlook app's cache which do not show up in the address book, however, they pop up as dropdown when writing a mail. I need and option to either save those contacts in the address book from where they can be exported, or an option to directly export them. Today If i lose my PC, or the disc goes corrupt I'll lose 1000s of IDs, and all my client data is lost. I can't go and individually go to email and chose to save those IDs individually for 1000s of IDs.

  16. Itinerary for Meetings - Each itinerary item acts as its own meeting

    We have a use case that may not be unique. Large meetings that require different attendees at different times. It would be awesome to create a single day-long meeting, then be able to carve out an itinerary within that that creates separate meetings with their own invite list. This would allow a single zoom/skype/webex to be scheduled, but be able to send out independent time slots to different users.

  17. Button for delayed delivery option in preview pane

    When replying to email from preview pane, there is no easy way to set delayed delivery. Please make that option a button that I can add to the menu. Currently I have the message options button, but then have to select the delayed delivery and set the time

  18. Option to choose which calendar you want import ics file on.

    When you import an ics file in an outlook client with multiple email profiles, you should have the option to choose which calendar you import the calendar entry on.

  20. Auto complete using full contact list instead of just "recent contacts"

    When I'm writing an email, I would like to be able to type an email from my contacts into the "to" bar and have outlook autocomplete the email without me having to go to the contacts menu.
