Full support for shared mailboxes/calendars
Shared mailboxes/contacts/calendars should be fully integrated.
The calendar should pop up notifications as well as for new mail in shared inboxes.
When creating a new email, the from address should be easily selected, and shared addresses should auto complete. shared contacts should be fully editable. etc. Also It would be useful to be able to share a birthday calendar.
Also, there should be ability to view shared calendars in iOS native calendar also. Additionally an option to share my calendar with someone who had a gmail account that is out of the network I have on Outlook.
Creating teams meetings on behalf of others from inside outlooks calendar view should be possible for each Exchange variant (onprem/hybrid) is running and no matter what GPO restrictions apply.
It seems not possible for a person having "send as" rights to another postbox to create teams meetings for a postbox they have send as access to.
If the send as access is given it should be possible for the persons to also create teams meetings within outlooks calendar view of that person.
Currently it's just possible using full-access and multiple outlook profiles. This should not be preventable by GPOs.
Multiple users expect that to work, given that the button is already visible from inside other peoples calendars.
Currently microsoft already proved they can apply changes against GPOs with the microsoft windows store and the switch to the new Chrome-Edge.
Incoming mail in a Shared Mailbox not returning an alert ist a terrible idea. Who's responsible for this???

We use Outlook v. 16 with O365. I can access and use a shared O365 calendar when selected from the "All Group Calendars" under the navigation pane under Calendars view.
I assume in code there is a connection made to the O365 services with my credentials and ALL group calendars I have access to are listed here. Therefore, all required security, etc., is also accounted for in the grouping.
Now, I want to add a shared group O365 calendar to my Personal Group of calendars so that I can just turn on the entire group and have all my co-workers and this shared show as well. I can add the O365 calendar to the group, but under this "view" (my personal group), it will not show and says basically access denied.
I assume that when adding an O365 calendar to a personal calendar group from the Address Book that Outlook is processing the calendar as an Exchange calendar and not an O365 calendar. Along with this, I am assuming the underlying security model/processing is different when processing Exchange vs. O365, and this is not being taken into consideration.
I know this may sound petty and small, but work flow and efficiencies are important even when they are small. In the end, it is not a single value that is important, it is the SUM of all values that warrant a change.
Thanks for your consideration.
Please add columns
I want to be able to easily post "e-mails" that I've sent on my share point site so those that have access to my share point can find them. Is this something that can be done now or can be designed?
Today, if my Outlook synchronization settings limit the number of messages synchronized (e.g., to the past 3 months), if I visit a Group that hasn't had any posts in the synchronized time, the view shows "We didn't find anything to show here." It would be better if this said something more like "There are more messages on the server. Click here to view them.". Clicking would download a batch of messages. This would be similar to what happens when looking at a folder that has unsynchronized messages. Also, it would help explain the discontinuity between the Group's unread message count (which appears to count all unread messages) and the subset that are shown in Outlook.
to be viewed while doing mail, only the outlook calendar which isn't used.

We have a group that randomly adds events on a shared calendar sometimes the event is not correct and we have no clue who added it. We like to address the person adding the event and resolve the error entries.

We use groups as input folder for several contact points with customers, where a team works together on email input
Unification of GROUPS, o365, teams, shared inbox. 1 place to handle all of them

In an M365 group you can have the ability to 'send as', so it's like an account. But Signature rules don't recognize it as a valid account when selecting signature associations. Please have that field populate with any associated From options and that would save me clicks all day!

Currently, under Help, there is a "contact support", which is Microsoft support. Would be nice to add another (optional) button that the organisation can program for Contact (your orgnisation's) IT support.

Make Outlook remember previous enabled calenders. When i close my outlook and reopens it, all of the enabled shared calenders was disabled.

I would like to suggest that Outlook get the option about opening the shared calendars when it was open back, because it was a very useful option.

The ability for an admin to set up 1 or more universal company signatures, with your details automatically applied. i.e. position, contact details, etc.
This would allow them to update commercial information, post new campaigns, and ensure a consistent look within the company.
Shared mailboxes really slow down the clients operation. Despite not being anywhere near the mailbox size limit.
I suggest making it possible to change the cache timeframe for each shared mailbox instead of one setting for all. EG my personal mailbox might give me the last 5 years, where as the shared mailboxes I use I might only need the last 6 months.
Currently, you can't use Outlook on Windows to edit calendars that are shared with your Outlook.com account, even if you've reconnected your Outlook.com account to Outlook. You also can not open\edit Family calendars. This seems like basic functionality for a product I am paying for. Why is it possible to do these functions in the native Win10 mail app, the native iOS mail apps, or the Outlook mobile apps but not in Outlook.
I have my tasks grouped by day so that I can see which days are fuller than others. The group header shows only "September, 10, 2020". it would be nice if it said "Thursday, September 10, 2020"

Please enable Set View to control which calendars show up in a with a certain combination of views. My work has many teams of people on a project by project basis. Being able to have a guick button to switch directly to a certain view including one set of people from the address book. Then whenever the next time you need to schedule with the team you can have it up in seconds. And if you work on a lot of teams, you need to be able to switch to an entirely different set of people repeatedly.
Group Mailbox - When a mail is read by one member in the group, it becomes read for all, please add feature to read/unread as per individual user.
