  3. Smarter Outlook 2016


    • Would like to easily follow up on emails. I imagine my ability to set a reminder on an email I send - a reminder only I see - that keeps me informed and warns me after X days of my choice, whether I received a reply or not. This is some next-step ML similar to checking if the body of an email contained the keyword "attach" and then remind me I've forgotten to add one. I could say "please do this by Friday", and Outlook will remind me on Friday that "this activity should be done by Friday by this…

  8. Add Conact to the Email Being Composed from the Contact Card I am Looking at

    Sometimes I want to add a contact to the email I am composing now, by browsing contact cards. Example scenarios are:
    - Getting to an existing recipient's manager, or
    - Picking a contact from a distribution list, or
    - Using existing recipient's membership to open DL contact card, and them pick somebody else on that DL.

    In all these scenarios, I have an open contact card on top of an email being composed, and I want to add the contact to the email recipients. Currently the only way is to copy email address from the contact card and paste it…

  9. quickbooks 2018 customer add-in

    Quickbooks 2018 has an add-in for syncing clients with existing Outlook contacts. PERFECT application but simply won't work without crashing Outlook 2016. I can't seem to find a fix for this. Interface should be much simpler with Outlook

  10. When you create any event in outlook 2016 then there should be a place which summarize their details

    When you're the creator of an event/meeting, have a place where these are summarized (so you can see who has replied) and then you wouldn't have to scroll to find the date of the event in order to see replies/send out updates

  13. Fix your search in all mail boxes folder!!!! Viewing as conversations is not suitable at all!

    Bring back the ability to search in all mail boxes without having to show as conversations! This is very inconvenient for business owners!

  14. Provide a feature to flag attachments from external domain as "Downloaded from the Internet" (not-trusted)

    Attachments received from an outside org., when saved as files, should be flagged as "downloaded from the Internet", as they would be actually downloaded from a browser. That would allow to block Excel macros file coming from an unknown source via email.

    Currently attachments received by email are not flagged in any way, regardless of the source.

    In regard to: https://cloudblogs.microsoft.com/microsoftsecure/2016/03/22/new-feature-in-office-2016-can-block-macros-and-help-prevent-infection/?source=mmpc

  17. Full indexing and apostrophe or quote search

    Full indexing search on outlook commands and outlook data in single search window
    Should have shortcut

    Also, when searching for a string containing either a smart or straight apostrophe or quote, return matches for both types.

  18. Browse for attachment In Outlook 2016

    When clicking "Browse this PC" when attaching a file, it defaults to either the last folder you browsed or to the program files folder (ex: C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\root\Office16). Defaulting to the program files folder makes no sense. If it doesn't default to the previous folder it should at least default to the library folders.

  20. Display quick select calendar by clicking written date

    When viewing the Calendar, clicking on the written Date should display the folder pane (if hidden) or just a date selector.
    This will allow you to view another days calendar quickly, especially if you have the folder pane hidden to maximize the usable space
