  5. a feature which would prevent others to forward a meeting would be nice.

    sometimes you don't want that others forward meeting invites to others without asking. It would be nice if one could mark meetings with a forward restriction which would prevent others from forwarding a meeting invite in outlook.

  6. Search feature

    The current search feature, where it is located, at the top of the screen is terribly inconvenient and un-natural. I suggest to go back to where it was.

  7. Smarter delayed delivery option

    I often write email off hours and want to delay delivery until office hours. Please add an easy option to delay delivery until office hours start.

  9. When you go to help in Outlook (not on google), please can the Help be relevant to the version of Outlook you have accessed help through?

    Make the Help menu you access through Outlook relevant only to the version of Outlook you have downloaded. I don't need to know how to do things in versions other than what I have. And the screen shots shown don't match my own screen. I could understand if I was googling for the answer but I'm asking through the flipping software itself! No help whatsoever.

  11. Make the banner indicating you are not responding to the latest email more visible.

    I would like to see the banner when replying to an email that is not the latest in the email thread to be more visible. In addition to this, a prompt forcing to click an acceptance box when trying to send the email could be helpful.

  14. Automatic Replies - Please provide an All Day Option

    Currently automatic replies shows:
    Only send during this time range:
    Start time: [date] [time]
    End time: [date] [time]

    can you add an "all day" option like every other modern calendar has so I dont need to set 12:00 AM for start time and 11:30 PM for end time?

  16. Add to address book via hyperlink

    It would be nice to be able to add to contacts via hyperlinks that are in the body of the email; that way you don't have to read the hyperlink and do a copy and paste in to the address book. Less clicks.

  17. Please add a confirmation pop-up when utilizing "mark All as read" that gives the option to cancel.

    at least when doing it to an inbox folder or a large number of selected emails (not for an individual email or for a few selected emails).

  18. Alert for too many recipients in the "To" field

    I would love it if an alert would pop up if more than 15 or 20 names are entered in the "To" field. The alert might read, "Are you sure you want to include so many names in this field? Consider pasting your list of recipients in the "Bcc" field instead."
    This would have served as a reminder and saved me much embarrassment (twice now!!) because of sending an email where all 500+ email addresses appear before the body of the email.

    Thank you!!!

  19. Enable a default meeting notice setting (e.g. have meeting end either at :25 or :55)

    Enable default calendar settings so all of the meetings i schedule can end 5 min before the hour or half hour so people have time to transition, think and function during a busy workday!

  20. Start outlook in calendar overlay mode with multiple calenders selected (timemanagement!)


    1. Starting outlook with your calendar screen first (instead of your inbox) -> this is possible and can be set via menu: file - options-advanced)


    2. However, I use multiple O365 accounts with multiple calendars. There is a nice option in outlook called overlay to see these calendars at once (where each calendar has its own color on top of each other). Now outlook doesn't save which calendars are ticked to show in the overlay mode and only starts with the calendars of the account you selected in step 1. So every time I want to start outlook in the calendar mode…
