  1. Year View for Calendar and Print Calendar Options in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Option to provide year view in Calendar and to print as well in Microsoft Outlook 2016 in year format. We cannot easily get the options to print a single page. The only settings available are "Table Style and Memo Style", without navigating through other printer-specific "Print Options". Provide print options or settings like page range, one-sided/two-sided, etc... just like every other Office app has had forever.

  2. There's possibly now too much empty space in the email window

    It'd be great to reduce the new size of the "from", "to" and "CC/BCC" columns in both the Popped Out New Email window and the inset 'reply' window. There's a lot of "dead-air" above the line where one writes the email

  3. A 'thumbs up' email acknowledgment response option

    Thumbs up flash response to enterprise emails instead of sending an email response that says "ok" or "thank you" or "I agree". It could be like the recipient attaching a flag to a rcv'd msg and the sender seeing that flag. This will cut down on storage costs and email noise.

  4. 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.

  5. Add more calendar meeting availability options under show as

    Currently, appointments show as free, tentative, busy, working elsewhere, work from home, or out of office. My company has a lot of virtual workers but we do come to the office from time to time. Sometimes, we want to meet face to face so it would be great if the out of office status could be subdivided into Out of Office - Free and Out of Office- Busy. This would allow me to set out of office as a way to indicate I will not be in the office but can make virtual meetings.

  6. Countdown clock for important events (for example 31 days until exam) as a daily flag on the calendar

    for example a note on each day that states # of days until an event, such as year-end reporting, or exams, or big events. Also, should have a place to put the number of the week of the year. Many corporate calendars have a number for each week of the fiscal year and refer to deadlines by that week.

  7. Provide a feature to automatically add contact to Address Book or Contacts based on emails in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Provide a feature to automatically add contact to Address Book or Contacts based on emails in Microsoft Outlook 2016. For example we receive an email from a person named John, getting an option to use the Senders email address to add it to contact directly would be an added benefit and would enhance handling of contacts. Also make it possible to store and display all the information in the Address Book including photos of contacts.

  8. Different Timing per Attendee within One Calendar Invite

    IDEA: Be able in the "Scheduling assistant" option of Outlook calendar invites to adapt start and end time per attendee ==> Outlook invite will then be sent with the same content for all attendees but only block the exact hours in their calendar!

    Background:
    My outlook agenda can end up messy due to many corporate meetings where I only need to join part of the session. I end up with big invites in the calendar (multiple hours) and need to manually click the invites to see at what time I'm expected to join. Reminder of the meeting is sent for…

  11. Provide an option to create and save a template of emails in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Provide an option to create and save a template folder that can be used to save frequently used e-mails(like emails containing quotes) as template. If needed, you go to your template folder and click on the specific email to send the e-mail off every month after updating it. This saves time and is more productive.

    Or incorporate email templates to match more like Word templates. This would include the developer tab options such as fallible fields, drop downs, and maybe auto fill contact info.

    Also include a personal save location for outlook templates like in word so you can set…

  12. Please make it possible to resize images when attaching to an email and ability to resize inbound email image attachments

    Please make it possible to resize images when attaching to an email.

    Also, we receive a great deal of customer inbound images and it would be nice if I could reduce the size (mb/pixels) of image attachments. I don’t need the images to be 12mb when 46kb will give me enough of a picture.

  15. Please highlight the day of the week in the calendar

    I would like the day of the week to be highlighted across the column. I would also like the hour to have an indicator line going across this hour through the days of the week.

  16. Enable InfoPath 2013 OLE Integration with Outlook 2016

    Please enable InfoPath 2013 OLE integration with Outlook 2016 Client! (Both C2r version AND also (please don't leave out) MSI versions).

    At this time, trying to open an "InfoPath Forms" folder or form within outlook give the error: "Cannot display the folder. An OLE registration error has occurred. The program is not correctly installed. Run Setup again for the program." Problem is that there is no installation program for InfoPath 2016 to run setup again for! Microsoft's only suggestion is to delete the folder and to back up the content with an earlier version of Outlook, so not any help…

  18. Move multiple folders at once within Outlook 2016

    Many folders to reorganize and having to move them one by one is a waste of time. There should be a way to move multiple folders like we can do with multiple messages.

  20. Support editing of shared Outlook.com calander in Outlook 2016

    We use share calendar on Outlook.com that we often change via Outlook 2016.
    Before Outlook.com was switched to Exchange in the back end this worked perfectly.
