  2. Transparent Updates

    Stop stealth updates. Your last update broke appointments, TELL us when you are going to apply an update, WHAT is in the update, and allow us to ROLL BACK if things get broken. So much time and frustration chasing a problem only to find out you updated things, changed or broke the way they work, and didn't tell anyone.

  3. Need option for disabling "Other Suggestions" for email addresses

    I like to have autocomplete but hate the "Other Suggestions". I am unable to find a way to disable that. It is VERY counterproductive, especially for emails that are no longer valid and I don't get option to remove it

  4. Bring back the look and feel of Outlook 2010

    Outlook 2016 has lost the great UI that Outlook 2010 had. The current colors, fonts, clarity, shapes, icons, etc. are very hard to see and understand. Folders are widely space, screen real estate is squandered, and work productivity is reduced. I realize that many of the changes are to make outlook more compatible with touch screens and mobile apps. However, most Outlook users use it for WORK. We use a keyboard and mouse. We do not use touch screens, but do need Outlook to be easy on the eyes for 8+ hours per day, fast, and easy to use. We…

  5. Turn off notifications for an email chain

    I like to keep my email box clean and make sure all my emails are marked either read or unread. When I'm added to a group conversation, I will be continuously notified whenever someone responds to that group and would like to turn off notifications/automatically mark the email thread as read for only that email chain.

  12. Get your e-mail quickly into a folder

    3 mouse clicks on a e-mail in the inbox and it will automatically be placed in its predefined folder.

    We have a lot of folders and now we have to search everytime for the folder.

    I know that you can place it automatticly into a folder but we first want to answer it in inbox folder and when we are answered it we place it in a customer folder.

  13. option to open folder where message is stored

    It would be great to have an option to open the folder where the message is stored.
    So you open a message and within this message you can click on "see in folder" like on MS File explorer.

    This would be particularly useful for search result lists...

  15. Merged calendars from different accounts

    Allow merging of different calendars from multiple accounts. I want my different accounts and their respecitve calendars to be merged into one. It makes it a lot easier keeping track of my calendar posts and people can invite whatever mail that I have into meetings not considering which is my preferred for calendard bookings.

  16. Provide a feature to make To Do List accessible and track-able and export it from Microsoft Outlook 2016 to other platforms

    Access & track your "To Do List" while you are on the go. In Outlook smartphone app, separate app or even exporting the list to keep following up in excel file. That would be more productive if Outlook would export it to To-Do application as a ready list.

  17. Appointments / Meetings - Group attendees according to their attendance

    When I set up an apppointment and want to track which people accepted, declined, and so on... it's already possible to see that when opening the appointment and checking the status.

    But unfortunately there is no option like in an Excel table, that I can group the attendees accroding to the status "accepted, declined, no reply" or other.

    It would be great, if this is possible.
    Cause with this information, is much more easy to find out how many people accepted, declined or didn't replied. Especially for big appointments with 10 attendees or more, this would be a great feature.…

  19. Provide a feature or an option of a shortcut for the Message Recall function in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Un raccourcis sur la fonction rappeler un message ne serait vraiment pas du luxe :(

    A shortcut on the function recall a message would not really be luxury :(

    La fonction existe depuis toujours mais elle est quasi introuvable y compris en passant par l’aide en ligne … et rappeler un email est une demande régulière.

    The function has always existed, but it is almost impossible to find even by using the online help ... and remembering an email is a regular request.
