  1. Color Code Events in Calendar

    Like in Google Calendar, you can color-code all of your events. Why not do it for Outlook as well? This would be a nice feature to have.

  2. Provide an option or feature to return to older version to Search contacts so that you see all contact cards in Microsoft Outook

    Previously, if I searched in Contacts, for, say the word "golf", I'd see the actual contact cards for everyone with that word in them, not just one person or a partial contact. Help. Please return to that.

  3. Unread Email Count - Move it back!

    I hate that the new unread email count for any box is aligned to the right. I cannot find anything online on how to fix this. PLEASE change this back or at least give the user the ability to determine if they want the count number next to the folder name or aligned differently.

  4. Show time of day bar in calendar on today's date

    With the latest calendar updates (late May / early June), the calendar now looks like the Teams calendar. There is a time bar with a dot, but they show up on the previous day. this should visually show up on today's date.

  5. Add 'Acknowledged' and 'Thanks' buttons to emails that will tell the sender you have seen their email, without having to send another.

    Add 'Acknowledged' and 'Thanks' buttons to emails that will tell the sender you have seen/appreciate their email, without having to send another, thereby reducing email traffic.

  7. Outlook New Meeting Location - Easy autocomplete previous Geolocation used

    Previous Office updates allow users to be able to select the new meeting location's history, sort of like an autocomplete feature where in users can use the up-and-down keys on their keyboard to select the previously used location for their past meeting when creating a new event in Outlook calendar. Since organization don't user Resource mailbox (Rooms), we relay on the Geolocation search. Now that users are in Office 365 Apps for Business version 2006 - with Windows 10 version 2004 build, this feature is no longer available.

  8. Change colors of Outlook or Word icons

    In the task bar, latest icons for Outlook 365 and Word 365 are too similar (blue).
    It's confusing.

  9. Dark Mode on Outlook Today

    It's about time to add a dark mode on the Outlook Today Screen. It's a pretty useful feature but it just don't make sense to have a white background on a dark mode setting.

  10. Change ownership of calendar event in Outlook 2016

    Sometimes the owner of a meeting (or, more often, meeting series) is on vacation or changes jobs; it would be nice if they could assign ownership of an instance (for vacation) or the full series (for job changes) to someone else. Also provide an option to create a meeting on someone's behalf without being included in the meeting.

  12. Forward\Reply\Reply All with attachments included in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    In Microsoft Outlook 2016, when we forward\reply\reply all to the email with attachments, the attachments are not available and we have to attach them manually. An option to reply all to the email with all the attachments included would be more productive in Microsoft Outlook 2016 as that option is not available as of now.

  16. At least a second dot for current time

    In the calendar, I like the line going to the time and the large dot, but I keep looking at the previous day's meeting. Better would be a second large dot so that the current time/meeting is framed (maybe with an alpha blended line between them)

  17. Clear Suggested Contacts because some of them are DEAD!

    When creating an email, typing an address in the "To" field brings up recent contacts and suggestions. The suggestions cannot be deleted, yet this is my personal info. These suggestions come from recent emails, but also from emails I sent 5-10 years ago. Literally, some of these contacts died a few years ago, but you still show them as "Suggested". Holy ****, this is my personal info, yet you won't let me delete it. This info is store in your cloud somewhere, which tells me you care nothing about people's privacy. I cannot clear "Suggested". Yet some of these people…

  18. Collapse search bar by default like other Office apps

    Like the other Office apps Excel, Word, and PowerPoint, they have an option where you can collapse the search bar on the window by default. Apparently Outlook doesn't.

  19. Enable an option to re-accept declined meetings that are part of a series.

    Add an option to be able to accept individual meetings which are part of a larger series after the individual meeting has been previously declined. It is possible to find a deleted invite for an individual meeting and re-accept it, but there seems to be no way to re-accept a declined meeting which is part of a series.

  20. Search specific text based on highlighted text

    Feedback for Office 365:

    Previously in Outlook 2016 & 2019 it used to support two ways of using the search:


    1. If highlighted text is present, search code snippet will wrap around when you click To/From/Subject.

    2. If highlighted text is not present, it will create To/From/Subject search code snippet and automatically highlight the dummy search term

    As compared to now (Office 365), it's just one way of using:


    1. If highlighted text is present or not present, it will create To/From/Subject search code and automatically highlight the dummy search term

    Can we retain the old functions where it works both way?

    Relevant…
