  2. 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.

  5. 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.

  7. 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).

  9. Play deleting sound only after items were deleted

    When using the Provide Feedback with Sound option and deleting an item with SHIFT DEL, deleting sound is played when showing the prompt for permanent deletion. It should play only after pressing the Yes button, because prompt sound is already managed by the Exclamation sound event on Windows.

  12. Consider using the Monaco editor for previewing code files

    It would be great if we could preview attached code files inside of a visualizer with syntax highlighting. (More broadly, it also supports Dark Mode, which would be nice, compared to the current notepad-like visualizer)

    See (https://microsoft.github.io/monaco-editor/)

  13. Publish email thread to a git wiki

    As part of the innerSource spirit, new hireswould benefit from seeing examples of debuggings of the system they are working on. But no one writes such documentations. And these debuggings most times take place over email (with questions and answers and screenshots and all that build up until the aha moment). And there should be a button in Outlook which says publish this email thread (where the debugging has taken place) to a wiki (we use aka.ms/idwiki which is github based). This is making it easier for people to record the relevant documentation. And it's not just debugging, it could…

  14. Meeting location should search on people

    If I want to make a meeting in another employee's office, I can easily type their name like "Andrea's Office" But then I have to manually look up their office address to know where to go if I don't know where their office is.

    Meeting location field should let me search for people's office locations.

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

  20. 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.
