  4. Add ability to edit distribution lists inside Outlook 16.x for Mac

    If I want to edit a distribution list in Outlook for Mac, I need to open Outlook Web Access (owa) to manage the group. Distribution list maintenance is a daily activity in a company, seems like it's high time this was made super-easy and put into the Outlook client natively.

  5. Just let me move the Groups somewhere besides the very bottom!

    I don't use the search folders, "scheduled", RSS subscriptions (really?) or conversation history. I rarely look at the outbox. I can move every other folder up or down the list. Why can't I move the groups folder as well? I bet you had to devise some extra code just to make it do that and keep it from acting like the other folders. Just eliminate that code and let it be placed where we want it please.

  6. Turn off message preview window in Groups

    I do not understand why Groups are treated differently than the Inbox. For security purposes, I would like to remove the message preview window, but there is no option.

  7. Show Attachments from External Senders in ProPlus installation

    Currently attachments from external senders don't show in Group Conversations under a ProPlus installation, and in order to see them you must forward the email, and pull them from the new message window. This is an absurd requirement, and absolutely should be resolved. The issue is not present in click-to-run installations.

  8. Improve Ordering Function of Groups in Favorites

    Currently when reordering Groups in the Favorites pane via drag and drop it appears there is no ability to drop a Group between two Groups, but only to top of list. Drag and drop reordering of groups should allow ability to drop a Group between two Groups.

  9. Ability to view junk mail sent to groups

    I have several outlook groups which can be emailed from external senders. I would like to be a able to review the emails that are marked as junk by outlook but I don't see how that can be done.

    There should be a way to review emails marked as junk so we can mark emails that are not junk as 'not junk'.

    Apologies if this suggestion has landed in the wrong category. For context, here's my question in the forum that referred me here:
    https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook_com/forum/oemail-ocleanup/groupmail-where-can-i-view-junk-mail-sent-to-a/8fc11d58-4712-4c33-b201-a9d8a7b1c6c9

  10. Add ability to filter/search on Group messages liked or not liked

    In Outlook groups, you can like messages. It would be great if we could search/filter on messages that are liked or not liked.

  11. Allow Respondents to Also View Voting Results Other than Sender

    Currently only the sender can view voting results. Let voters view results would promote more transparency.

  12. Automatic Template when e-mailing a Group

    Would be awesome if when someone e-mails a specific group, an automatic template gets populated into the New E-mail they want to compose. For example: we use e-mails for requests and it would be nice if a template was in place for our clients to uses so they don't have to remember what needs to go where.

  16. Provide a feature to find all groups with specific member

    At the moment, there does not appear to be any method of finding what email groups a given contact is a member of.

    This then causes issues if you need to change the contact's membership (eg if a person leaves an organisation and is replaced by someone else).

    Deleting the contact just throws an error when you send an email to a group they were a member of; without knowing which contact no longer exists!

  17. Insert contacts from an Excel spreadsheet into a Group List easily

    Right now, I can upload a list of contacts from and Excel CSV file and store them in my Contacts on Outlook. However, in order to add them to a Group List, I have to enter them one by one, I cannot copy-paste or import them from Excel in any way. This feature was available in older versions of Outlook but is now unavailable in Outlook 365.

  18. Sort by name option for Skype groups

    It would be nice to have the option to sort Skype groups by name with a right click, rather than having to manually move up/down each group.

  19. Use the graph to improve navigation of work done in a group of Outlook 2016

    When a group is selected, a navigation pane is shown that always shows: "Conversations, Files, Calendar, Notebook" (image : https://snag.gy/DFPkzU.jpg ) but this doesn't represent what is actually happening in the group. Sometimes groups use Teams, sometimes SharePoint, sometimes Yammer, sometimes a calendar, sometimes Planner. Microsoft Graph API is able to provide at least some insight into what components of the group is initialized, and how much work has been put into each part of a group. This should be used to power navigation of groups, so I can see where the work is happening.

  20. Provide a feature to maintain and sync Skype groups with Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Provide a feature to maintain and sync Skype groups with Microsoft Outlook 2016. Synchronization of Skype for Business groups with Outlook Groups makes It easy to add people to group and manage in Skype.
