  2. Option to make attachments respond to the keyboard the way they have forever

    Working with the keyboard and attachments is not up to the mark in Microsoft Outlook 2016. For heavy email users this requires extra efforts and need to be simplified. Provide an option to handle attachments with Keyboard.

  3. Option to save the Outlook email messages and calendar in .pdf format would be an added benefit.

    Option to save the Outlook email messages and calendar in .pdf format would be an added benefit. Also PDF attachments often cut off the right side of the page in the preview pane in Outlook. This is only a problem because the Ctrl-Scroll Wheel, which zooms perfectly for mail messages and other attachments doesn’t do anything for PDFs. Please enable the same zoom via Ctrl-Scroll Wheel that works for other content in the preview window.

  4. Google Contacts, Calendar, Notes etc support for Outlook 2016 would be perfect

    Google Email, Contacts, Calendar, Notes etc support for Outlook 2016 would be perfect. Also making it possible to work with other ESP like AOL would prove as an added benefit.

  5. Outlook Printing Attachments ATT001.HTML

    When printing attachments we do not need to print the att.htmls. Can you code the print attachments to exclude this. It is a minor but irritating feature that can be resolved very very easily. If necessary a switch to turn this off for all emails for this email and not all

  6. Expand Outlook Today functionality and features in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    In it's current form Outlook Today is carrying on with the old features that haven't been improved on. With just a little work we can see lot of improvements to Outlook Today by adding accessibility or links to features and it could serve as a DASHBOARD for all emails and groups across multiple accounts or localized to a single account. With current features like "Calendar", "Tasks", and "Message Counts" we can add functionality and a modern look that would entice users and can provide access to the following:

    a) Have an mail list with the most recent emails (across all…

  8. Add recurring calendar options, for only business days also Appointment Reoccurence must have the option to choose certain dates

    When adding a recurring calendar item, you cannot choose business days. This would be extremely helpful, if you need reminders on the first business day each month, versus the first calendar date, which could fall on a weekend. When there are multiple reminders, Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, etc, this is frustrating, because you manually have to move those reminders that fall on a weekend. Please consider updating.

    Also, Appointment Reoccurence must have the option to choose certain dates, not just based on daily/weekly/etc. basis

  11. Ribbon should not switch over to the Attachment Tab unless we need to perform any action related to attachments in Email

    The Ribbon switches automatically to the Attachment Tab and stays there whenever an attachment is clicked on in an email message. It is required to switch back to the Message or any other tab manually by the user in order to reply to a message or perform another function not related to an attachment. The ribbon shall not move to the attachment tab and stay where it is unless the user switches the tab himself to perform any action related to the attachment.

  12. Meeting Organizer should have an option to receive a notification regarding the attendees for the meeting invite in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Option in Microsoft Outlook 2016 to send a notification to the meeting organizer for updated attendees list and also who hasn't responded to the meeting invite. This should be an opt-in setting and also allow the organizer to set the specific time-frame for the notice(i.e. 2 hours before the meeting or 1 day). Another opt-in setting could be to send a reminder email to the invitee who hasn't responded also at a certain time-frame.

    Also in a scenario where there are large number of appointment invitees, it would be beneficial for an organizer to use a response tracker without getting…

  15. Add an option to remove the Archive button

    Some people never Archive and it would be nice to have the option to remove the Archive button from the mail home ribbon. While it can be removed, it is attached to the Delete button so you must remove both. Want the ability to just remove the Archive button. Also addition of Do not archive check box to all emails will be beneficial.

    We also got feedback that the Archive button is too close to the Delete button.

  16. Alerts when potentially breaking rules by adding Distribution Lists to BCC

    Adding Distribution Lists in BCC breaks everyone’s Microsoft Outlook rules and all those emails spam the Inbox in Business or Corporate environment. It gets even worse, when someone is soliciting for personal sales, events by adding distribution groups/lists of their choice to BCC. BCC itself is a great feature for specific scenarios but there are also scenarios where it can be abused. It would be nice if Microsoft Outlook 2016 can be designed to alert the user(s) that they are going to potentially break everyone’s inbox rules if any Distribution Lists\Groups are added intentionally or accidentally to BCC. This will…

  17. Suggest a Folder when Moving e-mails based on Prior History

    In a constant battle to manage our Inbox, It would be great to have Outlook suggest a folder where I will most likely want to file an email based on my history. For example, if I receive a Monthly Revenue report from the same person each month and file it in a folder titled "Financial Reports", Outlook could have that folder highlighted for me when I press CTRL-SHIFT-V (or select the Move drop-down in the Ribbon) so that all I have to do is press ENTER to move that message. Folder suggestions could be made from prior email history and…

  18. On the Assign Policy menu, add an option to Create a Rule to Assign Policy

    On the Assign Policy menu shown when right-clicking an email message or using the drop-down menu from the Ribbon, add an option to Create a Rule (to assign Retention Policy / Personal Tag). This will allow users to easily automate the task, without havimng to access the Rules option, which generally takes a little longer to access and open.

  19. Option to customize daily work hours in Calendar in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Provide an option to customize daily work hours in the calendar in Microsoft Outlook 2016. Everyone have different working or office timings. It is odd to think that Microsoft Outlook 2016 forces you to use the same work hours as provided in the Microsoft Outlook 2016. Also Calendar should have workday option for scheduling meetings. There is no option currently to set recurring meetings on a specific workday.

  20. Add ability to filter/search on Group messages liked or not liked

    In Outlook groups, you can like messages. It would be great if we could search/filter on messages that are liked or not liked.
