  1. Provide a feature to automatically disable email preview pop up when screen sharing is on in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    There are several occasions where there are email notifications and a preview pop-up appears from the screen of the organizer. There are instances where these emails are confidential and should not be seen by the audience is calls/meetings. I was hoping for outlook functionality to automatically disable notification previews while Skype (for business) screensharing is on.

  3. When creating a new Skype Meeting, don't block editing the invite until the Skype Meeting info is added.

    Provide an option to start editing the invite, then populate the "Join Skype Meeting" info whenever it gets it rather than blocking the editing options. Bonus if it doesn't let me send the invite until that info arrives in Microsoft Outlook 2016.
    Also, when someone having editor permissions to my calendar creates a meeting or appointment in my calendar, i want to receive an email right away that ‘this particular person has created meeting for you'.

  6. Do not let the Outlook Client update the value of a time zone on its server while editing the profile in Outlook Client

    Provide a feature that could distinguish the types of mailboxes and, for a room mailbox, do not let the Outlook Client update a time zone in Outlook Client. The location of room mailboxes is fixed, and thus its time zone does not need to be updated.

  9. Safety tips need to be rethought in the Outlook client

    Safety tips currently appear within the body of the message. This makes it easy to imagine that a malicious user will simply format the body of a message to appear to have a safety tip, and phish the user to a supposedly 'safe' site that is actually malicious. Please consider moving the safety tips to a protected area and/or removing all links from the tip itself.

  11. add alt sign in options to "Sign In" "Sorry, but we're having trouble signing you in. We received a bad request."

    instead of just posting a message, when having trouble signing in, offer an option to retype your login / password, or anything besides the message "The server has terminated the request due to excessive request rate. Please wait a few seconds and try again."

  18. The substring "& " in our mailbox name is still replaced by "_" in the favorites. "Inbox - Fathers & Sons" becomes "Inbox - Fathers _Sons"

    The substring "& " in our mailbox name is still replaced by "_" in the favorites. "Inbox - Fathers & Sons" becomes "Inbox - Fathers _Sons"

    Before this gets moderated and closed again: Yes, I asked at the forum you told me to. And there I was asked to please report that bug here. Can you guys at Microsoft please agree on where bug reports must be reported, before making it a really big hassle for me? I pay for the product, just so you don't forget that.

  19. Connect account to SharePoint with different Site Collections

    In every Office application you can connect to Office 365 SharePoint to set it up as save and open location for documents. The problem however is that it will allways redirect you to the root site collection. It would be great to choose which sitecollection would be connection. Preferably setting this option for a group of users so we don't have to bother them with extra instructions on how to configure there office apps.

  20. Mouse Gesture in Outlook 2016

    Like Opera and Firefox' FireGesture add-in, I wish to have very similar mouse gesture in Outlook too. Hold your mouse right-button and draw right/left to go to the next/previous message thread, up to create a new message, down to reply all, down, right to close the window, etc.
