  1. 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.

  2. Select All option & move to folder

    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.

  3. Reminders offered only on future events

    I use Calendar both to record planned meetings as well as to record my historic activities during the day to be able to invoice clients later. It is rather annoying to get a reminder on historic events immediately after recording such events, but it is quite helpful to have automatic reminders on future events. You should add an option to only offer reminders on new calendar items if start time is later than current time. If start time is in the past do not offer an automatic reminder.

  4. Provide an option to clone a past meeting as we might need to create meeting which is not a recurring one

    Provide an option to clone a past meeting as we might need to create meeting which is not a recurring one would be the best option in Microsoft Outlook 2016. Being able to clone a past meeting would be good instead of copying all the details again.

  6. Outlook Contact Group Exportation

    Two things:
    1. I would like to be able to export an individual Outlook Contact Group to Excel as a .csv and have every field be included in the export without having to export all of my Outlook Contacts.


    1. If this isn't possible then I would like to be able to use the "File/Save As" feature in the Outlook Contact Group window to save my Contact Group as a .txt file, open it in Excel, save as a .csv or .xlsx, and be able to see more fields from the export than just "Name" and "Email".

  7. Delete incorrect email addresses

    When typing an email, many times it will fill in the rest of the email address and could be the wrong address due to an error. How can the incorrect email be deleted so it is not readily there to be used?

  9. Banner/icon for BCC'd recipient to know they were a BCC

    Add a small banner or icon on emails received by a BCC so the BCC'd recipient knows to be careful in replying or replying all since other recipients don't know the BCC'd recipient was included.

  10. pin the calendar to the desktop

    Add the option to pin the calendar to the desktop, that would making the calendar much more convenient to use. The current alternative is to use a screenshot of the calendar as the desktop background but have to consistently update it

  11. Email Count

    Increase the maximum number of email recipients from 500 to at least 1000. We are communicating via e-mail with more folks than every due to covid19

  12. Auto update of existing meetings through Distribution Lists

    be able to invite internal distribution lists to recurring meetings where the distribution list stayed as the invitee, not expanding the members of the list at that point in time but still able to send to the existing list. As
    a result, when the distribution list membership was updated
    new members receive the meeting invite and if a member is removed from the list they would be removed from the meeting.

  14. Blocked Senders

    It would be good, very good, that if I have several email accounts: Account 1, Account 2, Account 3, etc.

    If, for example, in Account 1, I add an email address to "Blocked Senders", Outlook also gives me the option of adding that email address to the "Blocked Senders" in the others accounts.

    The same for the "Safe Post."

  15. Flag group emails as "Read by" to know what group members have seen them

    Being able to see what members of an email group viewed which emails would be a useful group setting. In multiple of my email groups, we rely on constant emails that confirm one or multiple members have seen/dealt with the email and its subject.

    As an example, I am in an IT group in my work with multiple other technicians. When someone emails the group with a problem, we rely on multiple emails about who will handle it and when it gets finished. It would be a much simple process for the first person to see it to just flag…

  17. Allow accepting partial time frames of a meeting

    Users should be able to accept only partial time frames of a meeting. If a user has a 30min meeting they have to be at and someone sends an invite for a 1hr meeting at the same time they should be able to accept the 30min they can make. This would let the organizer know they can only attend part and structure the meeting agenda accordingly.

  18. Provide more options for meeting reminders - multiple reminders, custom relative and absolute times time ahead of meeting.

    Multiple reminders: For example - 1 day before to prepare, 2 hours to commute and 2 minutes before to enter on time.

    Custom relative times: For example, 1 minute before to login to online conference.

    Custom absolute times: 8pm the evening before the meeting.

  19. Make meeting locations clickable links

    Given that many meetings nowadays use a teleconference facility such as zoom, webex, GTM, etc., make the meeting location clickable directly from the meeting reminder. Right now, I have to open the meeting by double-clicking the meeting in the reminder window and then click the link if it is in the body of the invite or copy and paste the location into my browser.

  20. Ability to send invites to new attendees only

    Where I add attendees to a meeting request, I want to send the invite to ONLY them and not resend it to all the attendees previously invited (previous functionality "send update only")
