  1. Introduce ONSCREEN KEYPAD for setting time on reminders, appointments, alarms etc

    Introduce KEYPAD for setting time on reminders, appointments, and alarms instead of the drop list which is so time consuming.

  5. Automatically move Blocked Junk email to the Trash folder.

    Presently when I block an email it goes directly to the Junk folder.
    Then I have to go to the Junk folder to send each one to the Trash folder.
    Would it be possible to have a rule that allows email marked as "Block Sender" to go directly to the Trash folder?
    Thank you!

  6. Option to be notified when there is a reply to a message sent.

    Allow an option while composing an email to have replies to an email pop up with a message, without having to create a rule every time I compose an eMail that I want to be notified that there is a reply.

  8. A box to check with calendar invites that let's internal users know it's able to be rescheduled

    A box one could check when creating a calendar invite that would allow you to note if it's able to be rescheduled.
    That way other internal users on my outlook (at my company) can know if it's easily rescheduled or not. For instance, if it were a 1:1, i would check the reschedule box to allow others to know that if they need to book something for a group and that's the only time that works, it's easily rescheduled. Whereas, if it were not, it would tell me it were an external/hard to reschedule meeting so avoid that time if…

  11. Adding Time Zones to Sent email

    With so many people working from home and in different time zones, it is tough to decipher exactly what time the sender of the email sent the email since there is no time zone stamped on the sent time of the email. For example, my colleague, Russ sent an email at 12:15 PM in response to another email sent by Rachel at 12:57 PM. Russ is in Denver while Rachel is in Seattle, however, the timestamps only show 12:15pm and 12:57pm. Can we add EST, MST, PST after the time stamps of the sent email? This will make the distributed…

  13. Sync signature between all devices and Outlook.com

    I use several devices - laptop, tablet, and iPhone, with Outlook. I also use Outlook.com . IIt's a huge miss that there is not a Signature Sync option. I should be able to create my signature for each email account a single time and it should sync across.

  14. Related Mails - When reply all

    I can do IM from skype from the email itself using send and IM to.. After the chat, when we click on Find related --> Messages in this conversion from the email. I am getting chat also in the related conversion.

    And so when i click on reply all, outlook prompts saying "You are not responding to the latest message in this conversation. Click here to open it." And in the above situation it will show the IM chat instead of previous latest mail where i have to respond.

    Is there way to get Find Related -> Message in this…

  15. Provide ability to "MOVE" recurring Birthday events from Regular Calendar to Birthday Calendar.

    Let us click and slide an event from one calendar to another calendar. For example, I noticed that we have a main calendar, holiday calendar, and a birthday calendar. I was not given the option to add all of the birthdays in a special "birthday calendar." They are all in the main calendar. Let us move them so we don't have to re-create each one.

  16. "Reply All" should tell you how many people you are sending the email to

    I understand there is already a feature that warns you if your email is being sent to a large group of people, but sometimes people will hit "Reply All" to a relatively small group of people, only intending it to actually go to one person. This could cause security/NDA violations or personal privacy breaches. Outlook should tell you exactly how many people will get your email once you hit "reply all"

  17. Allow birthdays to be deleted from the Birthday calendar.

    Allow birthdays to be deleted from the Birthday calendar. The fact that birthdays cannot be deleted from the BIRTHDAY calendar is dumb!

  19. Option to exclude weekends when creating a multi-week calendar event

    When adding an event that spans over several weeks there should be an option to exclude weekends. So for example when I'm teaching a 3 week class, but not on weekends, I currently have to add it to my calendar as separate events, one week at a time. I want to be able to add a multi-week or even monthly event and have an option to select "exclude weekends.

  20. Add a Nudge button to notify other users to respond to an email sending it back to the top of their inbox

    With the countless follow up emails this can eliminate over crowding the inbox. A simple nudge to move it back to the top of the recipients inbox and a notification showing it's a nudge.
    In addition to the nudge, add an acknowledgment button that you have read and received the email.
