  1. Unwanted Updates, Changes etc.

    Respect Respect
    I don't know the game you play, but some of us out there work with Outlook. It's not just a toy, it's bread on the table. Each time you do something new, it can mess up a lot of things you cannot imagine. Please, a bit of respect. You know, someone some day somewhere will say to us, users, you'll only get what You want. No more unwanted updates. No more elongated learning curve. No more laughs behind your back. And Outlook is out.

  3. Move navigation back to bottom, too much left side clutter!

    Since adding "Gmail" into the left side navigation, all the navigation has moved to the left side. It's hideous! Put it back down the bottom where it's less cluttered AND more consistent with Outlook for Office 365.

    Hey, thanks for the feedback!

    Is it possible that you’re accessing OWA from a different browser each time you’re signing in? The “Keep Me Signed In” feature will only work if you access from the same browser on the same computer in normal browsing mode.

    If you access in private browsing mode, it will not remember your “Keep Me Signed In” preference.

    Alternatively, if you clear your cookies, it will not remember your sign in preferences.

    Can you give us any more details about what’s going on?

    Colin

  8. Scroll bar design limits accessibility

    Scroll bars are far too narrow, and making the bar mostly invisible makes it incredibly difficult for people with limited eyesight to see, and the tiny size can make it awkward to select.

  9. Customize "Left Pane"

    Enable editing of the "Left Pane" so that users can remove unused features like "Files" and "Notes" from "Mail".

  11. Recurring Out of Office

    It will be great to be able to setup recurring out of office for auto replies on a particular day of the week as some of the staff members don't work everyday.

  12. Want to change the task owner for which in the shared mailbox

    When creating a task for shared mailbox, its owner is shown as the shared mailbox. It would be great you would implement a feature to change the task owner when creating it.

  13. Set the default meeting time to 15 minutes from the current 30 minutes

    Would like Outlook to reduce the default meeting length from 30 minutes to 15 minutes to drive more productivity worldwide. All the meetings which are unnecessarily dragged because of 30-minute time frame could be cut short.

  14. Using AI and OCR for uploading Business Cards into contacts

    It would be great in this world where AI and OCR are the newest technologies becoming widely available, if there was a way to take a picture of a business card and that the information capture with an OCR technology could auto populate into contacts on outlook. Without having to manually enter the information once you received a stack of business cards

  16. Change the default value of DeleteComments for the resource mailbox

    After creating the resource mailbox, we don’t want to edit the default value of DeleteComments. So, it would be great if we could change the default value when creating the resource mailbox.

  17. right click on link

    When I right click on a link and click "Open in a new tab" I would like the new tab to open automatically. If I wasn't interested I wouldn't have clicked on the link. Back in the old day we called this "KISS", Keep it Simple Stupid!!! I find that Microsoft has totally forgotten that concept. Maybe more CS (common sense) instead of AI (artificial intelligence) would help, or maybe individual intelligence even.

  18. Change Two-step verification

    The SMS sending option cannot be eliminated from two-step verification. I use the same tool in many other services like Google and they let me choose which method I prefer. Especially since I have read that, although it is very safe, the SMS method is more vulnerable to an attack than, for example, Google Authenticator appp, which is what I use in my account. Also, I have used a security key in my account as a login method but I wish to establish the key as a second factor method since using only the key is more vulnerable if I…

  19. Rearrange menu bar

    rearrange and modify clutter menu bar. I only use about three items and there is just clutter that I personally don't use or need. Would be really nice, like Mac mail, to get rid of items you don't need and place the items you use where you want them.
