  1. Option to cancel some meetings in a recurring invite

    Whenever we cancel a recurring meeting , each time it as "only this meeting " or whole series.

    It would be good to have an option where it allows us to select some number of meeting invites.

    For Example: If a recurring meeting is sent for 3 weeks. and if user want to cancel the meeting for 1 week , the popup should have option to select from and to dates and to cancel all 5 days meeting invite at once.

  3. Search specific text based on highlighted text

    Feedback for Office 365:

    Previously in Outlook 2016 & 2019 it used to support two ways of using the search:


    1. If highlighted text is present, search code snippet will wrap around when you click To/From/Subject.

    2. If highlighted text is not present, it will create To/From/Subject search code snippet and automatically highlight the dummy search term

    As compared to now (Office 365), it's just one way of using:


    1. If highlighted text is present or not present, it will create To/From/Subject search code and automatically highlight the dummy search term

    Can we retain the old functions where it works both way?

    Relevant…

  5. Enable back "Always prompt for logon credentials" for Outlook client/email

    Enable back "Always prompt for logon credentials" for Outlook client/email

    Since it has been grayed out and not able to change. Users should have that option due to security risks when using office and outlook.

    Make it possible to prompt for user credentials every time or not

  7. At least a second dot for current time

    In the calendar, I like the line going to the time and the large dot, but I keep looking at the previous day's meeting. Better would be a second large dot so that the current time/meeting is framed (maybe with an alpha blended line between them)

  8. End of occurrence reminder

    When you reach the end of an occurrence series, it would be helpful to have a reminder/notification that this is the last event of this series so that you can add/extend additional dates in the series if needed.

  9. Show time of day bar in calendar on today's date

    With the latest calendar updates (late May / early June), the calendar now looks like the Teams calendar. There is a time bar with a dot, but they show up on the previous day. this should visually show up on today's date.

  10. you need a more improved search engine for searching for contacts. Allow it to search all fields not just t.he name. Let it sort by column

    You need a more improved search engine for searching contacts. Allow it to search all fields not just the name. Let it sort by column so at least you can scan down the column to look for a contact. This feature has been horrible for a long time.

  11. Dark Mode on Outlook Today

    It's about time to add a dark mode on the Outlook Today Screen. It's a pretty useful feature but it just don't make sense to have a white background on a dark mode setting.

  12. Collapse search bar by default like other Office apps

    Like the other Office apps Excel, Word, and PowerPoint, they have an option where you can collapse the search bar on the window by default. Apparently Outlook doesn't.

  13. Add a "Thank You" and "You're Welcome" buttons to emails - reduces email clutter

    Add "Thank You" and "You're Welcome" buttons in an email, so that when a recipient clicks on the buttons, the original sender gets a brief pop-up text message saying "Thank You", rather than getting yet another email in the inbox that just says "Thank You". And if the email has multiple recipients, then the "Thank You" pop-up text is only sent back to the original sender. This will reduce the volume of useless "Thank You" emails that end up cluttering our inboxes.

  16. Scheduled Automatic Replies

    Connect the Automatic Reply function to Calendar. Currently they are separate features. Users should be able to schedule automatic replies to occur during a scheduled time that aligns with calendar appointments. If I make a doctor's appointment 3 months in the future, or I schedule PTO in the future, I will block my schedule with an appointment and set the status to "Out of Office". I should have the option to schedule automatic email replies at the same time, so that when that day comes my schedule shows out of office and my automatic replies are enabled. Currently it has…

  19. Put the title back in the title bar

    Makesit hard to know which Folder you are in.

    Since moving the search box to the title bat, you removed the title. Word, Excel, and Powerpoint are fine.

  20. Create an e-mail Out of Office Reply option when creating an appointment or meeting in your calendar.

    When creating an appointment or meeting in your calendar you should be able to create an auto reply (out of Office) associated with that calendar event. That way if you have multiple periods that you will be out of the office you can have it set up without having to remember just prior to the appointment.
