  2. Better Functionality for including others on a appointment.

    Need option to create appointments that include others, but do not disrupt their calendar. "Out of Office" for all day events or PTO items should not reflect on others calendars. Also All Day events shouldn't change time zones. They should keep to the 1 day they are scheduled on not span over two days.

  4. Bug: Start/End time for appointments and meetings should respect 24-hour format when typed

    When typing in an appointment start and end time, typing "0630" should make the time 6:30 AM. Typing "1830" will correctly set the time as 6:30 PM. However, typing "0630" may set the time in PM.

    This erroneous behavior seems to depend on whether the end time is in AM or PM, or whether or not a time has already been manually typed in the fields.

    I can reliably duplicate the behavior by performing the following:

    1. Double-click a date in the calendar to open a new Event window.
    2. Uncheck "All day event" (checked by default)
    3. Triple-click in…

  6. Bulk change "file as" to "company (last,first)"

    Provide a way to select a group or all contacts and change the "file as" to "company (last, first)". I had to export all my contacts to a cxv file and import them again while removing duplicates. Now all the contacts are shown as "last name, first name". I like to have them display by company name first.

  7. Fix login so it does not keep asking for ID every 2 hours.

    Fix login so it does not keep asking for ID every 2 hours. Microsoft Support and Recovery Assistant for Office 365 does not help. Suspect this is missing functionality covering use of dual login with App Id.

  9. Add option to select all emails in a given conversation except the ones you sent

    Add option to select all emails in a given conversation except the ones you sent. Most of the time, I want to move a conversation but want to keep my sent items in the Sent folder. Currently, I have to select each email in the conversation, except mine, and then move them to a folder together.

  12. Provide a way for editing e-mail address in contacts: now you can just replace it

    Sometime I have to modify a badly entered e-mail address. Now you can just cancel and replace with the correct one.
    It would be helpful/nice to have the possibility to edit it directly without the need for an external text editor.

  13. Outlook AutoText and Quick Parts doesn't work with diacritic characters

    Outlook AutoText and Quick Parts doesn't work with diacritic characters.
    If I use an å, ä or ö in a Autotext or Quick Parts phrase it doesn't work.
    For example, the Swedish sentence for With best regards is "Med vänlig hälsning" and it doesn't work, but if I write the same in Danish which is "Med venlig hilsen" it works perfectly no matter what proofing language has been set.

  15. When a message is open in a pop-out window, and I delete it, the next message appears in the pop-out window not closes

    change my settings in Outlook so that when I have a message open in a pop-out window, and I delete it, the next message appears in the pop-out window rather than the pop-out window closing?

  16. A pop up box login does not prevent privacy breach. Can still see inbox and emails without signing in.

    Not having a blank page login feature when starting up Office Outlook app in Windows 10 means that anyone trying to see information for the account is still able to see the inbox even though there is a pop up box asking for user to log in. Not secure enough.

  17. Provide an option to move control "up" (instead of "down") the email list when Moving/Deleting an email (as is available in OWA)

    When you take an action on an email (like Moving or Deleting it), control shifts to the next email "down" in the list, and previews it. If you're like me and like to go through your email First-In-First-Out, you always end up previewing an email you've already read. I'd like the option to shift control "up" to the next email so that I can preview a newer email I haven't seen yet. This option exists in Outlook Web App (OWA), in Options > Mail > Layout > Reading Pane > Choose what happens when you move or delete an item.
