  1. Meeting Location

    I am glad the Location picker when creating a meeting is getting better. But I want the office locations of the organizer and the persons invited to be an option. Now I need to go in the CAL to copy the office location and copy that in the Location field.

  2. Link emails and attachments to calendar entries - so that clicking on the calendar entry brings up the information pertinent to meeting

    Link emails and attachments to specific calendar entries - so that clicking on the calendar entry brings up all the information received that will be pertinent to meeting or event - currently a user has to recall the existence of, and manually search for, everything that might be relevant to the meeting - very inefficient and time consuming.

  12. The "Keyboard Shortcuts: Customize Button" in Outlook 2016

    Office programs allow users to customize keyboard shortcuts in the "Customize the Ribbon" dialog window. Why doesn't Outlook? The "Keyboard Shortcuts: Customize" button is missing.

  13. Highlight external email senders automatically in Outlook

    Enable to see companies adding big colorful warning banners in their emails warning about it being from an external source. It seems like this should just be a native function within Outlook that administrators can enable so that the Names/Emails of any external people are highlighted specifically, and also put a warning icon or something next to the subject or something similar to make it very easy to discern internal vs external emails while not needing to inject unnecessary banners that impede the readability of email threads.

  15. Show Non-Work Hours as Out of Office

    Please provide the option to show non-work hours as out of office. Presently, setting work hours only serves to slightly darken non-work hours when someone is scheduling a meeting, often resulting in non-work hours not being seen or honored. The only work-around is to create a personal recurring meeting set as out of office, which is functional, but distracting and intrusive to always see. Having the option to show non-work hours as out of office would be a far more elegant and functional solution.

  16. Provide a feature to insert the date of return automatically into auto reply

    Please provide a feature to insert the returning date into automatic reply.
    We do not have to change anything besides the date after the message is written once, but if it is written in several languages, we often forget to exchange the date somewhere, because we need to change it manually in the option and in evey part of the message on both pages inside and outside of the organization. Thank you in advance.

  18. Allow to change colour for inline comments only

    Now user is enabled only to change the text style for replys in MS Outlook, but not only for inline comments. It would be a wonderful option to choose a separate style for replays and for inline comments as I would like to keep a standard style for general replays and choose a different coloured text for inline comments (to be separated in the previous e-mail).

  19. Sync the Outlook Add-in for OneNote with the OneNote app version from Microsoft Outlook 2016

    It is unfortunate to not be able to send an email using the one note add in outlook to the one note app notebooks. One Note 16 pops up and I no longer use those notebooks.

  20. 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
