  1. Sync signature between all devices and Outlook.com

    I use several devices - laptop, tablet, and iPhone, with Outlook. I also use Outlook.com . IIt's a huge miss that there is not a Signature Sync option. I should be able to create my signature for each email account a single time and it should sync across.

  2. Create an appointment on multiple calendars at one time (personal & shared calendars)

    When creating a new appointment, I want to be able to add it to multiple calendars at one time. I have shared calendars with different teams. I have to put the same information on multiple calendars (ie: Out of office, work from home, etc.). It would be great to be able to click on new appointment and have the option to add it to additional calendars - other than just the default personal calendar.

  3. Read Aloud features

    We should have option to remove selection while reading.
    a whole sentence should be highlighted for better understanding.

  4. Provide ability to "MOVE" recurring Birthday events from Regular Calendar to Birthday Calendar.

    Let us click and slide an event from one calendar to another calendar. For example, I noticed that we have a main calendar, holiday calendar, and a birthday calendar. I was not given the option to add all of the birthdays in a special "birthday calendar." They are all in the main calendar. Let us move them so we don't have to re-create each one.

  5. Allow birthdays to be deleted from the Birthday calendar.

    Allow birthdays to be deleted from the Birthday calendar. The fact that birthdays cannot be deleted from the BIRTHDAY calendar is dumb!

  7. Option to exclude weekends when creating a multi-week calendar event

    When adding an event that spans over several weeks there should be an option to exclude weekends. So for example when I'm teaching a 3 week class, but not on weekends, I currently have to add it to my calendar as separate events, one week at a time. I want to be able to add a multi-week or even monthly event and have an option to select "exclude weekends.

  8. "Dismiss Past Meetings" option in meeting reminders dialog

    "Dismiss Past Meetings" option in meeting pop up dialog.

    In the "upcoming meetings" pop up dialog that appears now and then, I very often get a long list of meetings that happened hours ago, mixed with 1 or 2 soon-to-occur meetings. Unfortunately, the only way to dismiss all those no-longer-relevant meetings, without also dismissing the imminent meetings, is to individually click "Dissmiss" on each one ("Dismiss All" doesn't help here - I still want a reminder for the imminent meeting).

    Having a "Dismiss past meetings" button would make this much simpler and less error prone.

    I hit this problem daily.

  9. Provide Skype add in for Office 365 Personal

    A Skype add in is only available for Office 365 Professional or Business. Yet add ins are available for Zoom, gotomeeting, etc. for Office 365 Personal. So, Skype's competitors products are available via Outlook 365 Personal, but not Microsoft's own product. That's just dumb.

  10. Show the user calendar in Outlook client whose hidden from GAL in the cloud environment

    When using O365 Outlook we are not able to load the user calendar whose hidden from GAL. The hidden users’ calendar can be loaded and shown in Outlook client in the on-prem deployment, so I would like you to enable doing this in the O365 environment.

  11. Bring back more contrast to the tabs please.

    Progressive versions of Office since Office 2010 have made it increasingly more difficult to discern between items on the ribbon. Office 2010 by far had the best UI and was the easiest to use. Please consider your customers before making un-necessary changes to something that was once great.

  14. Ability to see list of Teams meeting attendees while presenting a doc

    Currently you can not pull up a list of meeting attendees while you are presenting a document. This can make it difficult to verify who is on the call, especially if attendees arrive late.

  16. Insert contacts from an Excel spreadsheet into a Group List easily

    Right now, I can upload a list of contacts from and Excel CSV file and store them in my Contacts on Outlook. However, in order to add them to a Group List, I have to enter them one by one, I cannot copy-paste or import them from Excel in any way. This feature was available in older versions of Outlook but is now unavailable in Outlook 365.

  18. Copy an existing meeting into a new meeting

    Allow the copying of an existing meeting into a new meeting that can be edited for content, attendees, time, etc., and then sent. This dramatically decreases the work effort of scheduling meetings and reduces friction between your users and the software.

  19. There's possibly now too much empty space in the email window

    It'd be great to reduce the new size of the "from", "to" and "CC/BCC" columns in both the Popped Out New Email window and the inset 'reply' window. There's a lot of "dead-air" above the line where one writes the email

  20. Insert availability

    Usually, I have to coordinate availability of internal associates with consultants who do not have access to our O365 tenant.

    It would be nice if there was a way to insert availability via the Insert tab for a specific day which lets me key the users whos calendar we are working with.

    This way, the recipient can simply create an appointment or meeting and send back quickly.
