  1. Quick jump to top of message list

    When doing message searches or reordering message lists, you often find yourself in the middle of a long list and have to manually scroll to the top. Add a qquick "jump to top of list' feature -- modeled after Apple iPhone 'jump to top' that is incorporated into many of its apps.

  2. I suggest you create the ability to make calendar meeting templates

    I would like to see the ability to create a calendar meeting template that can be saved and distributed as a file.

    For my own needs, this would allow me to have anyone from my company create and schedule a meeting with me and have the same standard universalized content since the necessary info that I need will be included in my template for each individual to fill out per their own meeting needs.

  5. Align create meeting feature with Windows

    Windows: creating a new meeting invite from an email adds the entire email thread to the meeting invite.

    Mac: using this feature removes the from, sent, to, and subject from the body of the meeting invite, making it look like you are the one who wrote the last email in the thread.

  8. Markers

    The "checked markers" you can add when you have read or finished doing a task from mail, is grey and not so easy to see when you scroll down all your mail. Earlier they were green and much easier to see. I would like you to colour them again with an easy to spot colour!

  13. Show my time zone for new meeting time

    I frequently suggest new times for meetings thinking the calendar is showing my time zone, then I end up with a meeting much earlier than I would like.

    It would be better for me to see my time zone when proposing new meeting times.

  14. Email attachment temp directory volatility

    Address the issue where email attachments are saved, then opened from a temp directory when accessed from email directly. If the user makes changes to the attachment and attempts to save the file, the default save location is the same parent directory as the attachment. That temp directory's contents are deleted when Outlook quits which can be a problem when the user doesn't realize where they're saving and save the file to the temp directory. Later when looking to access the file they can't because the file has been deleted.

    Apple OSX - Outlook 2016

    Copy and paste from webpage HTML to composed HTML message loses style/css. I would suggest exploring enhancement to the rendering. Including pasting of table boarders, center align, and text formatting.

  17. Approvals from Mac

    The ability to approve messages is not currently supported on Mac. When a message comes through requiring approval, I'm forced to log on to OWA or find a PC to approve the message.
