  1. Move Item dropdown needs icons to distinguish item type

    When using the Move Item drop down (Home tab -> Move & touch mode on the side bar), the list of folder only show the name.

    For example in the To-Do List (listing both flagged emails & task items) i may folders with the same name but for the different types (e.g. Task Items name "Personal" and an email folder named "Personal"). There is no way to distinguish between the 2 from this list. As a result you frequently unintentially move an email into a a task folder and it now becomes an attachment. In certain types of mail accounts…

    • In non-compact mode conversation view, show only unread senders in bold

      Currently, if only one message in a conversation is unread, all senders' names are shown in bold text in non-compact mode.

      It would be more efficient if only senders of unread messages in that conversation were shown in bold text. Then I could just glance at the sender list to know whether I had to pay attention to the update to the conversation (e.g. my boss just replied) or not (e.g. Bob from Accounting replied).

      The Android email client varies the bold/non-bold of senders in conversations, and it's a very helpful time-saver when scanning the mail list.

      In compact mode…

      • GPO Sync Slider settings

        The current settings in the GPOs allow only a fixed cache period, which is now in Outlook 2016 more granular, what is great. But it woulod be beneficial to have two GPO settings regarding this:
        1. The time frame of caching in month (existing)
        2. If the user can change this within the defined time frame
        So for example the GPO fixes 12 month caching, but with the second option, the user could lower to 6 month, but not beyond the 12 month.

        • Note Field and doing incell editing. Multi select fields etc. and changing them all at once without opening.

          To open a task, contact etc etc. just to type a simple word or even a small sentence in the note section is too much. It would make it really easier and a less step to do if you can allow us to type into the field directly. Especially if you are typing the same note and having to open them all for 10 tasks is crazy!

          Please consider selecting multiple tasks, contacts etc. and being able to change a text all at once. For example, if I have 10 tasks and have in the sentence a word that I…

          • search current mail box size

            The "search current mailbox" size in version 1812 is tiny. Allow resizing of the search box.

            • I would like that when I send a new mail and adjutno a file, it will be placed in the header in attachment and under the text.

              Same as when I reply to an email and attached a file is placed in the header in the row below where it says: attached; I would guitar that when I send a new mail and attached a file, it will be placed in the same place of the header and under the text of the mail. Is that possible? In previous mail it was like that.
              Thank you.

              • Provide a feature to set a meeting as "Public Meeting" or "Private Meeting" in Microsoft Outlook 2016

                Add a make meeting/appointment "Public" button thats the opposite of make "Private". It grants anyone in the org the ability to read the subject and details of a Calendar item.

                By default most users hide the subject and details of their meetings. Many of us often want to share details of only a select few meetings. A make Public feature will make it very conveinet for users to do this.

                The current option requires users to share subject/details org and mark the majority of items private.

                      Bring back the separate open and closable section at the top of incoming emails that contained all flagged items to make finding flagged emails easier.

                        • “To-Do" Forum for UserVoice Needed!!! (Flagging & Tagging)

                          Outlook's To-Do feature (flagging) affects Tasks, Mail, Contacts, Calendar...everything in Outlook. TO-DO's FlAGGING feature needs further development in Outlook.

                          Each item in Outlook be it a Message, Task, Contact, Calendar entry, etc. could be managed more effectively were the following Tags more easily applied to any item:

                          1.) Flagging
                          2.) Categorizing
                          3.) Prioritizing
                          4.) Dating (start and/or due dates)
                          5.) Add a “My Today” field/button (not a date)

                          Again, the above five "Tags" should be more easily accessed on each item in Outlook.

                          Finally, the Task Subject field in Outlook should be more fully utilized. The “Task Subject” is an…

                          • Ctrl-select specific PowerPoint slide(s), to send as an email attachment instead of an entire dec.

                            Oftentimes I just want to send a single slide, or a few PowerPoint slides from a deck, instead of the whole thing, and it'd be great to just select the slide(s) that I want included as an attachment.

                            Today, if I want to do this, I have to attach the whole file, open, delete the unwanted slides, then save to the attachment. This assumes that the file is not to big to attach in the first place.

                              fix it. You know why no one votes??? Because they have no idea how to do it. WHY WHY WHY did you make this all so complicated? Just to change it for no reason?
