  3. I'd love to be able to add notes for myself to emails when I file them. Something that would not forward if I reply later.

    Something like sticky note that you could attach to an email, but would not forward with the email when you reply. (for user's eyes only).

    Would be especially helpful if I could attach relevant files when filing emails (w/o sending a new email) or attach/connect other email chains so I could easily keep all relevant information together.

  4. Meeting response that tells the organiser where they will be attending from so that dial in facilities or VC can be added if needs be.

    Often we send out meeting invites and can't tell where people will be working on a specific day from their calendar. It should be possible in the responses that you could select "Attend" but will need a dial in / VC or a custom list of sites so that appropriate facilities can be set up to accommodate the attendees without having to track manually via email.

  10. Get your e-mail quickly into a folder

    3 mouse clicks on a e-mail in the inbox and it will automatically be placed in its predefined folder.

    We have a lot of folders and now we have to search everytime for the folder.

    I know that you can place it automatticly into a folder but we first want to answer it in inbox folder and when we are answered it we place it in a customer folder.

  13. Custom to-do list groups

    Custom to-do list groups that are not date driven like "To Read" "Delegated" or "revision" so they can be in sight but not time orientated.

  16. Merged calendars from different accounts

    Allow merging of different calendars from multiple accounts. I want my different accounts and their respecitve calendars to be merged into one. It makes it a lot easier keeping track of my calendar posts and people can invite whatever mail that I have into meetings not considering which is my preferred for calendard bookings.

  17. Transparent Updates

    Stop stealth updates. Your last update broke appointments, TELL us when you are going to apply an update, WHAT is in the update, and allow us to ROLL BACK if things get broken. So much time and frustration chasing a problem only to find out you updated things, changed or broke the way they work, and didn't tell anyone.

  18. Get a link to an email conversation thread on Microsoft Outlook 2016 across all the platforms supported.

    I use onenote to track my active work. Much of that is driven by email conversations. I'd like a way to get a durable link to an email conversation that I can paste into onenote or anywhere else.

    Clicking the link should take me to outlook.com to the latest conversation view of the thread. (Or an appropriate page if the conversation has been deleted.)

    It'd be neat if this link was like other OneNote links, where it generates both an outlook://<...> link as well as an https://outlook.com link, and I can choose to keep whichever one I like.

    I'd like…

  19. Allow business cards to be scanned into Outlook Contacts using a smartphone's camera.

    Allow business cards to be scanned into Outlook Contacts using a smartphone's camera. If it is possible to use a phone camera to take a shot of a business card, and then for OCR to transfer the contact information into the relevant field's of Outlook's contact cards.

  20. Allow to create a follow up meeting from an existing meeting. This is a very basic necessity that surprises me it is not available.

    After a meeting, there should be an option to simply create a new date and time using the same information from the previou meeting (participants, room, information, etc.)
