  1. Have a button to print all attachments (docs and pdfs) in email

    I am sent a ton of invoices in the form of PDF attachements. It's a pain to go through and print them all individually. Need a button or macro to print all attachements in an email (or multiple emails

  4. An option to bold or highlight selected mail folders

    Have the ability to bold or highlight, use different font colour on certain mail folders in Outlook. We have so many folders, it would be great be able to be quickly identify in the long list of folders certain ones - even just the main ones.

  5. 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.

  7. Provide option to have meeting reminder alert on a mobile device via text (phone number)

    Provide option to have meeting reminder alert on a mobile device via text (phone number)

    With the Covid-19 crisis and working from home/away from the office it would be useful to have an option to send meeting reminders as an Alert on your device or provide a fwd email so it will link with your phone and remind of a meeting. Working at home I am multi-tasking even more so than at the office and when I step away from my laptop sometimes I miss reminders or get taken away from an upcoming meeting.

    I also don't have a work…

  8. Additional answering option for Outlook meeting invitations

    When invited to an Outlook meeting you can answer by one of the options "accept", "decline" or "accept conditionally".
    It would be very useful to have an additional answering option "decline but keep appointment in the calendar". This could permit to:
    - keep track of changes to the meeting schedule and/or contents
    - change the acceptance back to "accept" if the schedule or the contents become more attractive
    - as a reminder for important meetings you cannot join to gather information about the discussed contents on a later stage.

  9. Autocorrect in subject

    The spell check works in the subject line and highlights errors but autocorrect does not work - why not enable autocorrect in the subject like it is in the body of an email/calendar invite

  10. Outlook calendar event reminders sent via text message to cell phone.

    On an older version of Outlook at work, I was able to set up so reminder texts on calendar items were sent to a text number that I provide, my cell phone. The same reminder that shows on the desk top is also texted to my cell phone number witch I had set up somewhere in settings for Outlook. It does not appear to be an available option at this timer.

  13. Adding virtual sticky-notes, and color-coding emails in various ways

    I'd love to paste virtual sticky notes on emails to remind myself of details not on the thread. Thanks.

    I'd love to color code the entire email in the email list, or at least have an easier way to create new colors and new categories.

    Finally, I'd also appreciate an easy way to color code my gazillion email folders. I swear I saw this on someone's computer one time - the folder titles were colors - but I haven't seen or figured it out since then.

    Thank you.

    Susan V.

  16. Select All option & move to folder

    I am trying to clean out my inbox, and I have to select each email individually to move it to a saved folder.
    I have multiple emails i want to move..like 20. It would be nice if I could select all and move to my saved folder.

  17. Darken the reading pane in the Dark Gray theme

    I love how the Black theme darkens the reading pane with white text on a dark background. I would like this option implemented in the Dark Gray theme as well.

  18. Include reminder settings with recurrence settings, e.g. set for 1 day or 1 hour ahead of each recurrence

    It would help a lot to be able to set a default reminder for each recurring task in the recurrence dialog.

  19. All me to create OOF or Busy response emails for specific time periods in my calendar. IE auto decline during lunch hours, or before 8am

    Block off specific times and reply with an auto-responder to meeting invites that occur during specific times. Ie lunch hour, or before the start of my day, or after hours. I want to be able to customize the response for each time period, and I'd like a rule that lets me override it for specific individuals or groups (ie my boss).

  20. Outlook meeting reminder notifications.

    Outlook meeting reminders notification doesn't get updated when ever an meeting request is moved to other date or time and still sends an remainder notification at the old time.
