  1. Powershell attachments in recent items

    When using powershell to > to a file (eg. get-something >c:\temp\output.txt), it does not appear in recent items. When opening in Notepad, saving the file, it still does not appear. Even if you modify the file contents and save it, still does not appear.

    Only when you rename the file from within notepad, does it appear.
    This would be useful for when needing to export data quickly and attach to an Email, or open in Excel.

  2. Option to move the clickable font applications outside Microsoft Outlook 2016 post

    The applications for formatting in Microsoft Outlook 2016 should not be within the post so they can be easily used with constantly going up and down within the post itself.

  3. Microsoft Outlook 2016 Apps with right-side banner for corporate communication

    There are applications available which offer Windows Screen Saver for showing Corporate Communication messages. Controlled from centralized machine, the system would download executable file, download content, install Apps inside client workstation and modify its registry. Once the computer is idle, the Apps would initiate the Screen Saver and shows Corporate Communication contents.

    As the ratio of the laptop screen is getting wider and becomes 16:9 ratio, there might be a place to put those Corporate Communication messages as banner on the right-side of the screen. Hence, outlook 2010 Apps can have this banner and Microsoft can add this feature for…

  5. Provide different GPO settings for the default account and added accounts

    We already have GPOs to enable caching in Outlook but these settings are valid for all accounts added. It would make sense to have distinct settings for the default account where I would e.g. cache items for 24 month but for all other accounts maybe only 3 to 12 months for performance reasons regarding OST files.

  6. Toolbar Customizations save all in one ui

    When saving Quick Access Toolbar commands, can each ui be saved into one ui. It would be so much easier then saving changes individually or copying the .ui files. Thanks

  7. Collect feedback about meetings and make suggestions based on this feedback

    Have the option to turn on a small questionnaire (a few questions using Likert scales) to get feedback about calendar appointments and tasks. Then use metadata about the meeting, who it was with/category/time/day/etc, and use this to make suggested meetings based on information gathered from emails or OneNote notes.

  8. MAPI Extended error for IMessage Object

    If IMessage::SubmitError fails and returns MAPIEEXTENDED_ERROR, IMessage::GetLastError gets called. If you supply MAPIERROR structure to Outlook it does not use the information on MAPIERROR in the displayed error box. I think the information returned by GetLastError should be shown in the error message popup.
    See: https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/office/en-US/96ca73d6-e4d4-462e-9791-d3e035b288ff/mapi-extended-errors-for-imessage?forum=outlookdev#8803715e-ac2f-4788-b2ad-74eca08b8723

  9. Note Field and doing incell editing. Multi select fields etc. and changing them all at once without opening.

    To open a task, contact etc etc. just to type a simple word or even a small sentence in the note section is too much. It would make it really easier and a less step to do if you can allow us to type into the field directly. Especially if you are typing the same note and having to open them all for 10 tasks is crazy!

    Please consider selecting multiple tasks, contacts etc. and being able to change a text all at once. For example, if I have 10 tasks and have in the sentence a word that I…

  10. Seleção em lote para Lixo eletrônico

    Recebo em média mais de 60 emails por dia que são lixo eletrônico, e tenho que deletar um por um. Minha sugestão é simples, sugiro que possamos selecionar vários emails com a tecla CTRL e que possamos mandar ao lixo eletrônico tudo de uma vez.

  11. Make all meetings Teams meetings by default

    Right now, remote work is the new norm. Please embrace it and save billions of clicks requiring customers to add Teams to their outlook meetings.
    All meetings should just get Teams as a default location and be enabled by default without any action.

  13. Open links with middle click

    I'm so used to opening links with middle click in the browser that I instinctually do that in outlook, and subsequentally get a goofy scroll experience. I should be able to open links in outlook with middle click.

  14. Predictive typeing should use the left and right space bar if it exists.

    Many keyboards have a split space bar. For any proper typist both halfs are are under your thumbs most of the time.

    Simultinaiously hitting both the left and right space bars would accept the auto-complete suggestion. The Ctrl-Tab is too clunky.

  17. Remove a user from meeting invite (not meeting owner)

    Often partner teams invite the whole team instead of individuals from the team. Need ability to selectively remove people from invite.

    This is opposite of forwarding the meeting.

  19. Be able to group messages both by Flag Stats AND Conversations

    Currently if you want your flagged emails to appear at the top of the list like it does on Outlook Web, you have to sacrifice emails being grouped by conversations.
    Simply put there should be a way to have both.
