  2. Alert me two hours before a meeting I organized if someone has not responded

    I have to remember to check before a meeting to make sure everyone I responded -- and even that takes several clicks. Check for me two hours before and alert me if someone has not responded so I can reach out. Maybe send me a list of the attendee status of everyone invited.

  3. Rethink the direction Outlook is going

    The look and feel of Outlook as well as most of the other office applications is continuing to look worse and worse. It's becoming much more childish looking and less professional looking. Many of the sections take up way too much space on the screen. The most recent change to the top of a new message looks totally ridiculous. Why either boxes around To, CC and BCC and not around Subject for example?

    Users should also be able to adjust the space between items in the Folder Pane, there is way too much whitespace between items and you have to…

  5. To include end time slots for meetings of 15 minutes

    In order to drive productivity and avoid meetings being back to back it would be good to be able to schedule 45 minute meeetings. Right now the default end time slot comes in 30 minutes blocks. I suggest to make it 15 minute blocks to make it easier to schedule shorter meeting times.

  7. Autocorrect in subject

    The spell check works in the subject line and highlights errors but autocorrect does not work - why not enable autocorrect in the subject like it is in the body of an email/calendar invite

  10. An option to bold or highlight selected mail folders

    Have the ability to bold or highlight, use different font colour on certain mail folders in Outlook. We have so many folders, it would be great be able to be quickly identify in the long list of folders certain ones - even just the main ones.

    I am trying to clean out my inbox, and I have to select each email individually to move it to a saved folder.
    I have multiple emails i want to move..like 20. It would be nice if I could select all and move to my saved folder.

  12. Additional answering option for Outlook meeting invitations

    When invited to an Outlook meeting you can answer by one of the options "accept", "decline" or "accept conditionally".
    It would be very useful to have an additional answering option "decline but keep appointment in the calendar". This could permit to:
    - keep track of changes to the meeting schedule and/or contents
    - change the acceptance back to "accept" if the schedule or the contents become more attractive
    - as a reminder for important meetings you cannot join to gather information about the discussed contents on a later stage.

  13. Can you please enable to view timezones of different individuals in scheduling assistant as well?

    I am unable to schedule meeting and check their calendar availability with respective to participants time zone.

    For instance, I have to schedule an appointment with other country. I can add timezones in my calendar but I can't see what is their time in scheduling assistant. It shows only my timezone details.

  14. Dark mode to match system mode.

    There needs to be a way to automatically change the theme of Office apps based on what the global Windows theme is set to (light or dark). When dark mode is enabled on Windows, it is very unpleasant to have a bright white background on Office apps. Having it synced to the system-wide global setting will eliminate the hassle of switching the Office theme everyday manually.

  20. Add search bar in customize ribbon to ease command findings

    Subject says it all. This feature is getting popularity in numerous applications. It would help/ease to locate commands we want to add to the customized ribbons. Much more useful than the "popular commands" preselections.
