  2. Add search bar in customize ribbon to ease command findings

    Subject says it all. This feature is getting popularity in numerous applications. It would help/ease to locate commands we want to add to the customized ribbons. Much more useful than the "popular commands" preselections.

  3. Current time visualization on the calendar.

    The day contrast pointing to current time on weekly view is suboptimal. The white line causes me to look at the prior date. options a) have white line under current only or b) put an arrow at the end pointing to the curent appointment vs a circle.

  4. 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.

  6. Banner/icon for BCC'd recipient to know they were a BCC

    Add a small banner or icon on emails received by a BCC so the BCC'd recipient knows to be careful in replying or replying all since other recipients don't know the BCC'd recipient was included.

  7. 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.

  8. Calendar: timeline for day / time

    Weekly overview: There is daily time line where I see the past day and black dot on current time of the day. Can this be that we can see on left/right line of day the black dot and the line goes from e.g. Mon to Sun?

  10. 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.

  14. Suggest a MOVE TO folder

    Like iOS, let me click a "Move To..." icon that suggests which folder the email should be moved to, based on past MOVES.

    For example, I move all ORDERS from Amazon to a folder named "Orders Placed".

  15. Outlook Contact Group Exportation

    Two things:
    1. I would like to be able to export an individual Outlook Contact Group to Excel as a .csv and have every field be included in the export without having to export all of my Outlook Contacts.


    1. If this isn't possible then I would like to be able to use the "File/Save As" feature in the Outlook Contact Group window to save my Contact Group as a .txt file, open it in Excel, save as a .csv or .xlsx, and be able to see more fields from the export than just "Name" and "Email".

    It would be great if we could search calendar items in the calendar regardless of how the calendar is added.

  17. "Reply All" should tell you how many people you are sending the email to

    I understand there is already a feature that warns you if your email is being sent to a large group of people, but sometimes people will hit "Reply All" to a relatively small group of people, only intending it to actually go to one person. This could cause security/NDA violations or personal privacy breaches. Outlook should tell you exactly how many people will get your email once you hit "reply all"

  18. Provide Skype add in for Office 365 Personal

    A Skype add in is only available for Office 365 Professional or Business. Yet add ins are available for Zoom, gotomeeting, etc. for Office 365 Personal. So, Skype's competitors products are available via Outlook 365 Personal, but not Microsoft's own product. That's just dumb.

  20. Make the Move feature auto-complete in the Windows client (like the Mac client)

    Move | Other Folder... pops what looks like an Office 2003 "Move Items" dialog. There's no way to find a folder expect to navigate all the twisties and remember where you put whatever it is you're looking for. Daunting, high-friction, every time.

    On the Mac client, you're dropped into a Search experience. Wildly more usable.

    Please.
