  1. Allow "contact" viewing pane to be switched between right or bottom

    For users with a portrait monitor (or frame) when the first contact automatically displays after a moment, the navigation panel gets crowded out to the point where only the rightmost characters of the panel text are visible. The only workaround I have found is to change the browser zoom level. Interestingly, if you reset the zoom level back to default zoom, the panels (including the navigation panel) all fit nicely in the monitor/frame.

  2. Attendance Record

    Is it possible for an attendance record to be generated from a meeting to show who was actually on the call? At the moment I think we can only see who accepted but those who accept don't always attend, so this would be a really useful feature if it isn't already one?

  4. Search by Phone Number (including partial)

    Searching for a phone number (or part of a phone number) in the general Outlook Search (and Windows Search, and People search) should show People / Contacts with matching #s (including partial matches). This should be regardless of how the # is formatted for that Person/Contact.

    Right now, searching by a phone # in Outlook might return an email that contains that phone number, but it does not show any People results even if the number matches exactly.

  5. Blocked Senders

    It would be good, very good, that if I have several email accounts: Account 1, Account 2, Account 3, etc.

    If, for example, in Account 1, I add an email address to "Blocked Senders", Outlook also gives me the option of adding that email address to the "Blocked Senders" in the others accounts.

    The same for the "Safe Post."

  10. Allow users to specify their pronouns.

    Add an official way for users to specify their preferred pronouns - he/him, they/them, etc. Ideally this would be easily changeable, and not require people picking options from a list.

  11. People

    Display all the data in the reading pane for a selected person, do not make me hunt for it by editing the contact, make it obvious how to show more information.

  12. Provide an feature to copy email addresses from Contact Lists without importing in Excel and separating names in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Facilitate the copying of email addresses from a distribution list - at the current time, when the contact is copied, it includes the display name. This means you can't copy a group of email addresses into a programme like Doodle (without a boring work around of importing into excel and then separating out the email addresses, yawn)!

  16. Allow to attach a resume which may be a pdf or Word doc to the corresponding contact in Outlook

    I want to be able to attach a resume which may be a pdf or Word doc to the corresponding contact in Outlook. I want to look up a person in Contacts/People, open the Outlook Contact and then be able to click a link in the contact that would be attached to much more detail in a resume, for example, that is saved on my hard drive in Documents
