  1. To include end time slots for meetings of 15 minutes

    In order to drive productivity and avoid meetings being back to back it would be good to be able to schedule 45 minute meeetings. Right now the default end time slot comes in 30 minutes blocks. I suggest to make it 15 minute blocks to make it easier to schedule shorter meeting times.

  2. Can you please enable to view timezones of different individuals in scheduling assistant as well?

    I am unable to schedule meeting and check their calendar availability with respective to participants time zone.

    For instance, I have to schedule an appointment with other country. I can add timezones in my calendar but I can't see what is their time in scheduling assistant. It shows only my timezone details.

  3. 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.

  4. Allow users to specify their pronouns.

    Add an official way for users to specify their preferred pronouns - he/him, they/them, etc. Ideally this would be easily changeable, and not require people picking options from a list.

  5. Put title in the title bar!!

    It is difficult to know which folder one is in without the title in the title bar. The rest of Office still does this.

  6. 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. Contact ONLY Individuals who have not replied to a meeting request

    You should be able to (under tracking) easily email or reach out to those who have not responded to an outlook invite to a meeting request. The only way I see it can be done now, is to hand extract those individuals and resend a new meeting request.

  9. 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.

  10. Task due date should be automatically added onto Outlook Calendar

    If you enter a task with a due date, it should show up in your calendar as either an all-day event or an event at the time assigned (if applicable). When the task is complete, it should update in calendar with the strikethrough formatting.

  12. New dark Office Theme

    Would be nice to see a new dark Office theme with colour accents like the colourful theme has. Also, having separate theme settings for the different Office products would be nice since I don't necessarily want dark mode on Word but really like it on Outlook.

  14. Provide an option or feature to return to older version to Search contacts so that you see all contact cards in Microsoft Outook

    Previously, if I searched in Contacts, for, say the word "golf", I'd see the actual contact cards for everyone with that word in them, not just one person or a partial contact. Help. Please return to that.

  15. 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.

  18. Enable an option to re-accept declined meetings that are part of a series.

    Add an option to be able to accept individual meetings which are part of a larger series after the individual meeting has been previously declined. It is possible to find a deleted invite for an individual meeting and re-accept it, but there seems to be no way to re-accept a declined meeting which is part of a series.

  20. Close to tray, don't close outlook

    Instead of closing outlook with the normal close button, give us the option to default it to the tray and let it run in the background.
