  2. "Dismiss Past Meetings" option in meeting reminders dialog

    "Dismiss Past Meetings" option in meeting pop up dialog.

    In the "upcoming meetings" pop up dialog that appears now and then, I very often get a long list of meetings that happened hours ago, mixed with 1 or 2 soon-to-occur meetings. Unfortunately, the only way to dismiss all those no-longer-relevant meetings, without also dismissing the imminent meetings, is to individually click "Dissmiss" on each one ("Dismiss All" doesn't help here - I still want a reminder for the imminent meeting).

    Having a "Dismiss past meetings" button would make this much simpler and less error prone.

    I hit this problem daily.

  4. Add custom ribbon option for Paste Text Only

    In the list of "All Commands" for customizing the ribbon, there is no option for the subordinate paste command to Paste - Keep Text Only. I would like to make this directly accessible on my ribbon, as I use it very often.

  6. Sort outlook folders in descending order.

    I file emails by job number. If descending order was available the current job numbers would be on top of the folder list and I would not need to scroll to the bottom all the time.

  8. Bring back 'what do you want to do'

    where did the 'what do you want to do' search box go? it was so convenient to use it to 'add signature' or other tasks.

  9. Ability to see list of Teams meeting attendees while presenting a doc

    Currently you can not pull up a list of meeting attendees while you are presenting a document. This can make it difficult to verify who is on the call, especially if attendees arrive late.

  10. Bring back the connector lines between folders and subfolders

    Old outlook used to have connector lines between folders and subfolders. This made it easy to see all the subfolders belonging to a particular folder. Now that that the horizontal spacing between subfolders has been reduced and the lines removed, it is quite difficult to see what belongs to what, especially when you've got a lot of different folders and subfolders all indented at different levels.

  12. Make the Move feature auto-complete in the Windows client (like the Mac client)

    Move | Other Folder... pops what looks like an Office 2003 "Move Items" dialog. There's no way to find a folder expect to navigate all the twisties and remember where you put whatever it is you're looking for. Daunting, high-friction, every time.

    On the Mac client, you're dropped into a Search experience. Wildly more usable.

    Please.

  14. In the reading panel, about the email in addition to the options: reply, reply to everyone, forward - add: new email.

    It will facilitate and streamline actions. You will not need to search for the command to send a new email (new subject and different addresses). All options in the same space.

  15. Feature suggestion. Enable removing an entry in the 'Recently Used Fonts' list.

    In Outlook, when composing a new message, in the Font selection box, I would like to be able to right-click a font in the 'Recently Used Fonts' list and select 'Remove from this list'. In trying out various fonts, the list becomes long and the fonts persist in the list. Having many fonts in the list defeats the purpose of having the one or two fonts that I do use often, be easily accessible.
    The same suggestion also applies to Word. To be clear, I’m not suggesting removing the font; I just want to shorten the list.

  17. The new message pop up window should have a Mark as Read option.

    The popup window that appears when new email arrives should have a button for marking the email as read.

  20. Make it possible to select multiple email headers and right click and select "Mark to Download"

    When the setting is to download only headers, currently we need to select each header, right click and select "Mark to Download". Change this to allow select multiple headers with Ctrl+Click and then right click on the selection to mark to download.
