  6. a feature which would prevent others to forward a meeting would be nice.

    sometimes you don't want that others forward meeting invites to others without asking. It would be nice if one could mark meetings with a forward restriction which would prevent others from forwarding a meeting invite in outlook.

  7. Suggest to use MS Teams when the recipients are internal

    To progress Teams adoption, it would be good to have a small banner or bubble that suggests the sender to use MS Teams to start a conversation as opposed to Outlook with maybe a clickable button to start the conversation in Teams.
    Outlook would check that they are internal recipients and suggest something like "These are all internal recipients, click here to start a group chat in Teams"
    Going further, if its possible, Team membership would be checked on the fly while the recipients are added to the 'To' field. It would read something like "These recipients are members of…

  8. Automatic Replies - Please provide an All Day Option

    Currently automatic replies shows:
    Only send during this time range:
    Start time: [date] [time]
    End time: [date] [time]

    can you add an "all day" option like every other modern calendar has so I dont need to set 12:00 AM for start time and 11:30 PM for end time?

  9. The ability to bounce emails

    Combat spam by bouncing emails back to a sender making them think your email address is not valid. I used to do this all the time when using an older email client on Windows XP. I started when I was getting over 100 spam emails a day, and managed to reduce this to 2 a week

  10. Provide a feature wherein Meeting Appointments or Meetings should pass a None reminder time as None.

    When an Appointment or Meeting is sent, the sender has the option to set the Reminder time. By default it's 15 minutes, unless it's an all day event where it's 0.5 days (in Office 2016 at least, I believe this has changed a few times depending what Office version is in use).

    When 'None' is used, it doesn't actually send 'None', it uses the recipient's default reminder time, which is 15 minutes.

    There is currently no way to send someone a meeting request with no reminder. Worse off, people think the 'None' option works, so they use that and then…

  13. Outlook should remember its windows sizes and positions

    When I open a new Windows inside Outlook for e.g. the Calendar or Tasks, pick a position for it and resize it according to my needs, it should be saved, so once those windows are closed and then reopened, I don't need to do this again.

    An older Office Version had this feature, but it seems to have been removed.

    Some details on this can be found here, please read the last statement from Jennifer from Microsoft.

  17. flag

    Please could you develop a feature attached to the flags function so that we can add a note to ourselves of what the flag is for?

    I see this working that when I flag an email, another box opens up which allows me to add a reminder as to what I need to do before processing the email, for example.

    And if this could go into the Outlook Today page too that would be awesome!

  20. Upload attachments to Teams' channel folder

    It would be great nice if I could upload attachments to Teams' channel folder. Currently, only folder I can upload is root folder of document library but it is not root folder of Teams. I have to do several more steps to save appropriate folder.
