  2. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. Add delete icon to the message header

    In message preview mode, when hovering on message header, show delete icon.
    Flag icon already becomes available. Propose to add delete icon as well.
    This feature/capability is available in OWA.

  7. 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.

  8. Outlook feedback screenshot refresh

    There should be a button that allows a user to refresh the Outlook feedback screenshot. Since it captures all monitors, it often picks up sensitive information that I don't want to share with Microsoft.

  10. Go back to old layout for room finder

    With new layout I have to guess the exact way in which building name is registered and then have to try and guess what room is available when that matches the availability of the people I'm meeting with. This is a significant waste of time.

  13. Move menu: add folder with the entire conversation

    I usually want to move the email I've just read to the folder where other emails from the same ocnversation already reside. It would be nice if this folder is added to the Move list at the top, before all recent folders.

  15. Free Busy should show different color/pattern when the recipient is the organizer.

    It's hard to find times that work for most people when creating a meeting. Often times, there are just one or two people who show Busy for a timeslot when everyone else is free. Those busy blocks, however, may be with appointments for which the recipient is the organizer and has the power to change. It would be helpful then to display a different pattern in Scheduling Assistant for blocks that are Busy but where the recipient is the organizer and not an attendee (and therefore may have more leeway to work around).

  17. Play deleting sound only after items were deleted

    When using the Provide Feedback with Sound option and deleting an item with SHIFT DEL, deleting sound is played when showing the prompt for permanent deletion. It should play only after pressing the Yes button, because prompt sound is already managed by the Exclamation sound event on Windows.

  20. Consider using the Monaco editor for previewing code files

    It would be great if we could preview attached code files inside of a visualizer with syntax highlighting. (More broadly, it also supports Dark Mode, which would be nice, compared to the current notepad-like visualizer)

    See (https://microsoft.github.io/monaco-editor/)
