  1. Be able to group messages both by Flag Stats AND Conversations

    Currently if you want your flagged emails to appear at the top of the list like it does on Outlook Web, you have to sacrifice emails being grouped by conversations.
    Simply put there should be a way to have both.

  3. Pin folders in Move mail dialog

    When reading email and clicking on the Move button you get a list of recently used folders to move the mail to. It would be nice to be able to pin some folders so they are always on the list. (Quck Steps is harder to use in current ribbons layouts.)

  5. Outlook feedback screenshot refresh

    There should be a button that allows a user to refresh the Outlook feedback screenshot. Since it captures all monitors, it often picks up sensitive information that I don't want to share with Microsoft.

  6. Send back a quick thumbs up.

    Teams, Yammer, LinkedIn, FB, etc. have taught us to like/thumbs up/frown back at the sender. It would be nice if Outlook let us do that without sending a full reply. it wouldn't have to send full thread either, but with a link to the thread at least.

  7. Built-in CRM with Office Professional Subscription and Beyond

    Having a built-in CRM with a pipeline, fully customizable would be an awesome and well needed addition to a piece of software that is already pretty incredible.

  9. Go back to old layout for room finder

    With new layout I have to guess the exact way in which building name is registered and then have to try and guess what room is available when that matches the availability of the people I'm meeting with. This is a significant waste of time.

  10. Add ability to vote for incoming UX changes

    New calendar UX is very heavy. Visual weight is not really on appointments/meetings (i.e. what matters most), but on the surrounding UX elements. For example, black grid lines are too contrast and sticking out.

  14. Move menu: add folder with the entire conversation

    I usually want to move the email I've just read to the folder where other emails from the same ocnversation already reside. It would be nice if this folder is added to the Move list at the top, before all recent folders.

  17. Free Busy should show different color/pattern when the recipient is the organizer.

    It's hard to find times that work for most people when creating a meeting. Often times, there are just one or two people who show Busy for a timeslot when everyone else is free. Those busy blocks, however, may be with appointments for which the recipient is the organizer and has the power to change. It would be helpful then to display a different pattern in Scheduling Assistant for blocks that are Busy but where the recipient is the organizer and not an attendee (and therefore may have more leeway to work around).

  18. Make Search tab visble always in Outlook main window

    The Search tab only shows itself when you start a search, however many of the options, such as indexing status you might want to see without performing a search.

    If the tab was always available then this would be possible. Also, if you want to start a search by clicking on the items in the search tab, such as hasattachments, you can do so. Today, you have to type text, then click the item in the search tab and then delete the text to achieve this

  19. Tag internal meetings as "internal"

    It seems like a lot of people manually tag meeting subjects as "internal". I'd like to see Outlook/Exchange do this automatically based on the attendee list. If the attendees all come from your organization, the UI should be able to flag those as "internal" meetings, maybe with categories or something.
