  3. Please bring back the classic theme and more colors in Outlook 2016

    Please bring back the classic themes for Office 2016 like we had in Outlook 2003 and 2007. I

    I use the classic theme in Windows 7 and I would prefer to use that, than the current 4 themes currently provided in Office 2016.

    Why do I want this feature to come back? The classic theme is much easier on my eyes than the themes offered currently in Office 2016.

    Also, you must have more options to add color in outlook! I loved the dashboard of office 2007 and just upgraded to 2016 and it seems so sterile!

    Thanks,
    Chris

  5. Allow for rules to be executed after x number of days

    Add a new rule criteria that would allow rule actions to be performed after certain number of days.

    Ex. Move emails from HelpDesk@123.com to Helpdesk folder after 2 days of email date

    Ex. Delete emails from NotMyBoss@123.com after 15 days of emailed date.

  8. Allow separate reminders for separate calendars

    I have 2 calendars - one shared and one personal - It would be nice if the reminders were also separated when displaying/popping up. I don't want my personal and my shared reminders to show in 1 screen.

  10. Auto populate upcoming OoO from calendar to signature

    It would be great to have option (checkbox as an example) that allows to automatically add line with "Upcoming OoO : %dates%" text to the signature.
    Feature should take your calendar "all day" upcoming events (either showed as OoO or busy event) and add them to your signature for populated by user (default 2 weeks), either period of time or 3 upcoming days. End result like "Upcoming OoO 08.03.19-15.03.29"

    Alternative could be feature to add different variables to the signature, so users can configure it themselves.

  12. Outlook Print Same As WORD

    Make PRINT dialog uniform among WORD, OUTLOOK , EXCEL, etc.

    For example, add "PAGES" option to Outlook. I rarely want to print an entire email, and right now it takes multiple clicks and multiple dialogs to select which pages to print.

  13. Full Outlook Contact Access From Email

    I want to be able to access a full contact record in Outlook from an open Outlook email like you could before Outlook 2013. Ideally I could click on a persons name in an email and a full contact record would open. Instead, starting in Outlook 2013 and in Office 365, a small contact card without full contact management features opens. Some may want it to work the new way, but some may want it to work the old way so there should be a setting on what happens when you click on an email address on the to: or…

  14. Upload attachments to Teams' channel folder

    It would be great nice if I could upload attachments to Teams' channel folder. Currently, only folder I can upload is root folder of document library but it is not root folder of Teams. I have to do several more steps to save appropriate folder.

  15. Set Default Calendar Tab for Calendar View

    When you open Outlook Calendar desktop client, if you have multiple calendar tabs, Outlook chooses any calendar tab, but yours as the active tab. Why not allow the user to set the default calendar tab in focus? Since it's my Outlook account, I'd love to be able to default to MY calendar tab. This will prevent users creating events in other calendars.

  18. Instant Messaging on Outlook

    Instant Messaging Chat should be added rather than having to waste time on a short email that could have easily taken 10secs to respond but really, takes like 2mins

  19. Block Senders Domain in Junk

    When getting lots of junk email with same domain name(with different email accounts) it would be great if we get an option to block senders domain. We can edit the blocked senders , but its again a tedious process and we may end up doing this daily. Adding a button on Junk so we can block the senders domain right away would be an easier way to tackle this menace.
