  1. Embed Office Form in the Outlook E-mail

    Embed Office Form in the Outlook E-mail so that when users receive the e-mail, they will not have a second thought to click on the survey link, they will already see that there are only a few and easy-to-answer questions in the survey through the body of the e-mail, and answer it right away because the embedded form is interactive already.

    Advantage: Prevent users from parking the survey then forget that it's there because of the low priority. Presenters can get enough feedbacks through the survey.

  6. Colour the favourites section for mailboxes - allow us to choose the background colour

    Colour the favourites section for mailboxes - allow us to choose the background colour for each item added into the favourites section - this enables the user to quickly scan mailboxes rather than all of them and picking the wrong one

  7. Add a 'Next business day' flag default setting that shows with other flags of 'Today', 'Tomorrow' etc. when right clicking on message

    Add a 'Next business day' flag default setting that shows with other flags of 'Today', 'Tomorrow' etc. when right clicking on message. This would enable things flagged on Friday to go directly to Monday without having to click through the custom menu. Would be faster.

  8. Provide an option to share Quick Steps with other Outlook users

    Option to send a quick step to an Outlook user that would give them the ability to save the Quick Step for their own use.

    For example, if I have a Quick Step to send a new message to my secretary and Cc my office manager, it would be beneficial to have the ability to send the Quick Step to a coworker so that they can utilize the same format without having to manually create their own Quick Step. This would help avoid grammatical errors and the chance of entering an invalid email address.

  9. Add MailTips for messages that are set for delayed delivery, so that the scheduled delivery time shows up in the MailTips bar.

    Incorporate MailTips for messages that are set for delayed delivery, so that the scheduled delivery time shows up in the MailTips bar when you preview the message. This way you don't have to go back in to the delayed delivery options to check the scheduled delivery time.

  10. Include Delay Delivery option for draft and reply mails

    Though there is a Delay Delivery option when we create a new mail. However, those mails which are saved in Draft section or the mail which is in reply/replyAll, there is no such option.
    Can you please suggest if there is any existing solution for this? If not, then can you please include this feature as well?

  11. Backup mail content as in Word.

    Periodically backup the mail being edited, so that when outlook fails and restarts, it can restore the latest mail content.

  15. Vertical scroll bar for Favorites

    Add a vertical scroll bar to the Favorites list, and make the divider between Favorites and other folders movable, so that we can give or or less room to Favorites.

  16. Send group email via Contacts

    It would be nice to have the ability to email a group of people by selecting their names within Outlook Contacts versus 1st creating a new email then individually searching their names. We would be able to send an email to the selected contacts much faster. It would also be nice if we could create a New Group by selecting their names within Outlook Contacts and right-clicking versus 1st creating the group then searching for individual names.

  17. Please add an archive button next to the trash can button in the message list.

    Please add an archive button next to the trash can button in the message list. The archive button is at the bottom of the list when I right click on a message, but it would be less clicks to have it in the message list entry next to the trash can button. This would be similar to the ability to archive messages by swiping in the outlook mobile app.

  19. Implement a feature to share the MyAnalytics Insights

    It would be great if MyAnalytics Insights could be shared to managers. Then managers could view and utilize their staff’s Insights data to improve business efficiency.
