  3. Calendar option to start appointments and meetings later instead of just "End appointments and meetings early"

    Currently, we manually set meetings to start 5 or 10 minutes after the hour and adjust to 25 or 50 minutes, respectively. This is very annoying but necessary because people in my org do not respect meeting end times.

  5. goto Folder from search list

    when i have lots of folder that are nested, and I have done a search, it cam be very difficult to find where the messages are located. I would like the ability to see the path displayed in the search and the ability right click on the message in the search list and select goto Folder. This would place me in the folder where this message was found.

  6. Alert me two hours before a meeting I organized if someone has not responded

    I have to remember to check before a meeting to make sure everyone I responded -- and even that takes several clicks. Check for me two hours before and alert me if someone has not responded so I can reach out. Maybe send me a list of the attendee status of everyone invited.

  8. More color options like the online version has

    Would like to see more color options for themes like the online version has. The limited options all look kind of bleak and don't give room for a personal touch.

  14. Adding Time Zones to Sent email

    With so many people working from home and in different time zones, it is tough to decipher exactly what time the sender of the email sent the email since there is no time zone stamped on the sent time of the email. For example, my colleague, Russ sent an email at 12:15 PM in response to another email sent by Rachel at 12:57 PM. Russ is in Denver while Rachel is in Seattle, however, the timestamps only show 12:15pm and 12:57pm. Can we add EST, MST, PST after the time stamps of the sent email? This will make the distributed…

  16. Add documents to an meetings that are not yours that the other participants cannot see

    When you have a lot of meetings then you sometimes want to look at things in advance and maybe draft some documents, notes etc.

    There should be a way to attach documents and notes to a meeting that you can bring to the meeting and dont want to look for 5 minutes before the meeting takes place. That way you always have a place to bring the documents that you need for the meeting

  18. End meetings early works well, can I also do it starting late?

    Add an option to start meetings late similar to how you are ending the meeting early. Under an hour, start x minutes late and over an hour start y minutes late. Still end on time.

  20. Provide option to have meeting reminder alert on a mobile device via text (phone number)

    Provide option to have meeting reminder alert on a mobile device via text (phone number)

    With the Covid-19 crisis and working from home/away from the office it would be useful to have an option to send meeting reminders as an Alert on your device or provide a fwd email so it will link with your phone and remind of a meeting. Working at home I am multi-tasking even more so than at the office and when I step away from my laptop sometimes I miss reminders or get taken away from an upcoming meeting.

    I also don't have a work…
