  1. Privacy and screen sharing

    Outlook should be able to tell when desktop sharing is on in Skype, S4B and Teams (and maybe by other modalities but at least the MS ones). It should not allow the subject lines of mails to be shown, or maybe all mailbox views just get greyed out (in the manner they do when RMS is on a file, for example, that is pulled to a shared desktop). The subject lines of inbox are likely not appropriate for sharing with an audience and it is too easy to forget sharing is on when in Desktop sharing mode.

  2. Bad error after reopening message

    Outlook makes a bad error: When I reopen a message from the outgoing order, the sender address changes automatically to the default sender account.

  3. Provide a feature to add an internal subject matter to track emails with relevance not stated in subject line in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    For example, I am an accountant. Many of our clients are large families and we communicate with their financial advisor only. We receive email updates throughout the year related to multiple family members. The subject line the advisor chooses may be the family's last name but the subject matter within the email may be multiple things such as estimated taxes and changes to payments, letters from governmental agencies, new addresses, purchases and sales, etc. The problem I have is by the time we are ready to prepare a tax return in October we may have 15 emails out of 150…

  4. attachment security

    Please stop resetting the security for opening attachments in Outlook with EVERY update. I intentionally trust and allow Excel, Word, PDF documents to be opened without having to OK the pop up notification. But after every update -- usually once each week or two -- this "security" setting is turned back on -- and I have to go through the steps to allow these files again.

  5. Lizenz

    Guten Abend
    heute Abend hat mich ein Microsoft-Mitarbeiter angerufen und über eine Stunde, nur Englisch, bequatscht.
    Sein Name: Joe ...son Telefonnummer: 001 1 1084 5530 0354 8824
    Er behauptete, dass meine Lizenz nicht mehr aktive sei und bot mir für CHF 5,-- einen lenslanger Update an.
    Stimmt seine Aussage?
    Grüsse Urs Gardi.l

  6. Setting up recurring meetings on a surface hub when the time slot is already blocked for one week.

    In the given scenario:
    When trying to set up a daily meeting on 3 Surface hubs that are in different offices.
    The recurring meeting is set for every day.

    Setting this up works fine for 2 of the surface hub and we receive an email from each surface hubs confirming that the meeting was accepted. However, for the one surface hub, we get the following email reply:

    "Declined All: Daily Meeting"

    "Your meeting request was declined because there are conflicts.

    Time of Conflicting Meeting
    
    Monday, September 11, 2017
    [... and other dates in the same week]"

    The message is basically…

  8. "Low bandwidth" mode

    Create a mode for situations where you have low bandwidth (in-flight and public Wi-Fi, for example) so the application doesn't become unresponsive by trying to sync shared calendars, index searches etc.

  13. 16.0.8625.2121 isn't pikcing up day light saving

    16.0.8625.2121 isn't pikcing up day light saving. I have the screen shots to show it. Windows shows the correct Seattle time, Outlook is an hour behind.

  14. It would be helpful when after replying to a Red Flaged Email for follow up if one could

    It would be helpful when after replying to a Red Flagged Email for follow up if one could Undo the Red Flag so it would fallback it to the inbox where it was originally sorted by whichever designations for sorting would apply.

  17. When scheduling a meeting, the "All day event" is being overlapped by the checkbox

    I wish I could attach a snippet here, but when I was creating a event for myself today, i noticed that the "All day event" checkbox is getting overlapped in the UI. Please note i'm also self-hosting Windows (doubt it's related, but possible i suppose).

  18. Allow users to click behind the compose message window when right-clicking sending an attachment through 64 bit Outlook 2016

    I just got off the phone with Microsoft support and they suggested posting this here. To me this sounds like a design flaw and not necessarily an addition since 32 bit works fine by letting me click behind the "Compose" window to click and drag in more attachments, etc. 64 bit does not allow this... at least on my machines here at work, which are around 150 workstations.

  20. Funds approvals

    Hi

    i work in sales department and i travel frequently,

    i suggest we should have an option to send request for approvals from manager for the expenses claims and manager approves it should land in a specific folder for the people in CC to have record.

    please let me know if this feature is already there.
