  1. Flag group emails as "Read by" to know what group members have seen them

    Being able to see what members of an email group viewed which emails would be a useful group setting. In multiple of my email groups, we rely on constant emails that confirm one or multiple members have seen/dealt with the email and its subject.

    As an example, I am in an IT group in my work with multiple other technicians. When someone emails the group with a problem, we rely on multiple emails about who will handle it and when it gets finished. It would be a much simple process for the first person to see it to just flag…

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. Enable an option to categorize emails based on colors in a group. This will make the group inbox get managed effectively.

    Enable an option to categorize emails based on colors in a group. This will make the group inbox be managed effectively. If there are multiple people in group who are accessing the Inbox Group, It is difficult to assign jobs and also coordinate who has picked up that email and is working on it.

  7. Drag and Drop or mass selection Outlook groups membership management

    Adding members to groups has to happen one person at a time? Contact group management allows you to open various address lists and select multiple items then click "Members" and it adds all selected items at once, the groups feature forces you to type and search for members one at a time and add them as you find them. <- this method absolutely kills productivity please add functionality similar to that of group contacts before I go insane(er)

  8. Preview options for dynamic distribution lists

    Add a preview option in Outlook to view members of a dynamic distribution list, its selection criteria and estimated number of recipients. Dynamic Distribution Lists are a wonderful tool, but when the users have to contact their Exchange admins to find out who would be a recipient, they lose value as people become afraid of using them not knowing you will receive the message.

  9. Provide a feature to copy an email item to Group Conversation folder via API

    Provide a feature to copy an email item to Group Conversation folder in Microsoft Outlook 2016 to get rid of the extra Distribution List folder that may be required otherwise via API. It is possible to copy mail items in own folder but there is no way to copy it to Group Conversation folder. The goal is to conserve the original headers of the mail item. When a forward is done, the header is distroyed.

  13. 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. Improve Visibility of Group Inbox

    Many times now people in Groups have not seen my emails because they do not monitor the "Groups" inbox, and so they never see my email that I send to Groups / Teams groups.

    Recommend some way of improving visibility to this Inbox. Either duplicate the message in a user's Inbox by default. Or maybe provide a ribbon notification when a new Group message has been received.

    Regardless, there needs to be a better way to notify users of messages here as I believe most people just collapse the Groups section and never look at it.
