  2. Add ticks to read and sorted emails like in the past

    A tick on a read email is a deeply missed feature

  3. Close to tray, don't close outlook

    Instead of closing outlook with the normal close button, give us the option to default it to the tray and let it run in the background.

  4. All me to create OOF or Busy response emails for specific time periods in my calendar. IE auto decline during lunch hours, or before 8am

    Block off specific times and reply with an auto-responder to meeting invites that occur during specific times. Ie lunch hour, or before the start of my day, or after hours. I want to be able to customize the response for each time period, and I'd like a rule that lets me override it for specific individuals or groups (ie my boss).

  5. Option to turn off ALL Outlook sounds

    There are some Outlook functions where there apparently is no way to turn off the "chime" sound (e.g., when you close an email you started but haven't sent, and many other mail and calendar functions). Muting the speaker entirely is the only option, but because many of us use Skype we need that on. What we don't need is unnecessary chimes in the background while we're working. I don't need these annoying chime sound effects - they're disruptive to me and anyone else who's nearby or on the phone with me.

  7. Folders need to be in alphabetical order

    My folders in outlook are not in alphabetical order ever since the updates came out this year and I cannot fix this. This should be standard across the board and needs fixed asap.

  8. Open Attachments

    It would be nice to have a keyboard shortcut or something that can be added to the quick access toolbar that would enable to open attachments.

  9. Autocorrect in subject

    The spell check works in the subject line and highlights errors but autocorrect does not work - why not enable autocorrect in the subject like it is in the body of an email/calendar invite

  10. Save "rules", "signatures" and all other account settings on the account level rather than the device so that all devices will have the same

    Save "rules", "signatures" and all other account settings on the account level rather than the device so that all devices will have the same settings automatically applied instead of having to rewrite all rules and other settings from each device.

  11. Buttons to Increase and decrease fonts

    Fonts sizes of the buttons to increase and decrease font size (A^) don't compliment with each other

    Ideally the font size of the button to increase the font should be bigger than the font size to decrease the font

    but it is opposite right now

  12. Provide a Warning when the Outlook file becomes too large

    Dependend on the amount of system memory the outlook pst file may become too large. After that outlook is stuck. So, a warning which relates the size of the PST file to the amount of available memory is needed.

  13. Show the popup or send a notification to users to notify the PST data export completion in Outlook

    It would be great if a message window would pop up on a user’s screen after the completion of the PST data export in Office Outlook. Currently users can’t know whether the data export has completed as there is no message or notification.

    We refer the export method described below:

  14. Please bring back the feature that had the Inbox label on top bar.

    With multiple Inboxes, there used to be the label on the top portion (blue bar area) where you could see which Inbox you were looking at. Ever since the new rollout of the Search bar on top that is no longer present. Since I monitor multiple inboxes I usually have multiple windows open. I used to be able to glance up at the top and see which Inbox I was viewing, which made it very simple and easy to know which window was which Inbox. Now I cannot tell until I flip through my open windows. Please bring that back.…

  17. Ability to copy email addresses directly from invite lists for meetings.

    It would make it much easier to internally identify people that attended meetings if you could not just copy a participant list from a meeting invite (which only shows internal usernames) but also copy participant/invitee emails from the tacking screen.

  18. Create the option to add a Conflict column/field to Views. This would make Conflicts more visible and allow resolution faster.

    I love the ability to create custom views for all of my Outlook folders and decide which columns (fields) I want shown. An important column/field that is missing from the choices of available columns in the Conflicts flag/notification.

    Let me elaborate. Sometimes, when I open a mail item, an informational notice/flag appears in the header that reads, "This is the most recent version, but you made changes to another copy. Click here to see the other versions."

    My suggestion is that that you allow me to add this notice/flag to my Views. When glancing down a list of messages, I…

  19. When clicking a web-hyperlink, I would like to select the specific browser window where the link should open.

    At times, multiple browser windows are opened to organize the work I am doing. In such instances, if I can direct the links to open in a particular instance of the Browser window, that will make it more effective and efficient for me.

  20. have a feedback service that actually allows you to say what problems you are having rather than this utterly stupid system of suggesting a

    I have had several issues since being forced to upgrade to Office 365. Now I find I can't get any emails from apps where I am attemting to join, or have forgotten my password - I can't sign into zoom or enrol with new online apps. This new office is making my working life very difficult with all it's controls - that is automatic controls that remove my control. If this continues I will insist on my it comapny installing an older version of outlook. And you cna't even complain! I don't want to suggest a feature! I just want…
