  1. Allow "Like"ing emails

    Many emails that land in my inbox do not require me to respond. However, the sender may still want to know how well the content of his email is received by me and other recipients.
    The visibility on no. of likes on an email can be kept private to the sender in the MVP. The recipients need only to see a "Like" icon toggle with two states - "Liked already" and "Yet to be liked".

  2. Quarterly recurrences for appointments, meetings, and/or tasks

    Outlook recurrence patterns currently include "Daily", "Weekly", "Monthly", and "Yearly". Can a "Quarterly" recurrence pattern be added? This would save time having to manually insert reminders in the calendar each quarter.

  3. Change the organiser/admin of existing Outlook appointment series

    This would be helpful in case someone leaves the company or changes his function internally and has reserved certain meetingrooms with an appointment series. Right now the current organiser has to cancel the series and at the same time the other person who takes over needs to send a new invitation. However there are always problems with this method and it's quite time consuming to copy the series manually. Would also be a nice feature to have for general appointments.

  4. What happened to blocking domains automatically

    There was a great feature that let you choose to block the entire domain when you chose to block an email. This was great because I used to have to go through the blocked senders list one by one adding the bad domains. I thought it should have been expanded so that if you chose to block a domain, it automatically deleted all emails from that domain that was in your mailbox.

    Instead of expanding the functionality, it looks like it has been removed. Bring back the option to flag email as Junk, block it, choose to block the domain,…

  5. Terminology confusing on Move to and Copy to <folder name>

    "Move to" then changes to "copy to" and it is confusing as to the operation being performed. When you choose to "Move to" for an email, the pull down box then changes to "Copy to" <folder name> and it is confusing terminology. Is the email being moved to the new folder completely? Or is a copy being moved and the original left to clutter up the inbox as well? Since I don't see the email still in the inbox, it does appear to be acting as a Move but it is confusing terminology since Move means "move to new location…

  7. dark mode issues

    The overall issue is darkmode is very hard to work with as a developer, until recently we could override certain things that were breaking but the recent update adds !important to the inlined styles so we can no longer fix the bugs it causes.

    A few of the bugs that we’re facing include...
    Light colours are adjusted but dark are not, leading to a lack of visual structure where contrast is being used.
    When dark text is applied to a light background image the text is made light but the background stays the same making it very hard to read …

  9. Clear Suggested Searches History

    Clear Suggested Searches history. The ability to clear this should be available, often contacts I will never ever use again, not needed and just clutter of stuff I don't need to see anymore, one off contacts, junk etc. thank you.

  10. Separate Log Out Button

    Give "Log Out" option its own button. NOT in a drop down menu, where half the time it does not appear unless the page is refreshed. Just give it its own button to click on.

  11. Bring back the previous method of spellcheck. I hate that dropdown box with every other unneeded choices.

    Just bring back the previous method of spellcheck. I spell a word incorrectly, I right click over it, spelling choices drop down. I click on the correct spelling and the word is corrected. That function seems to no longer be available!

  12. Outlook/Hotmail adding "folders" on its own to email?

    Where did this "Files" come from between my "Favorites" and my "Folders"? I don't need or want Word or Excel templates.

  14. Capacity planning

    In Outlook you can create resource agenda to book them. Please make sure that you also can create an agenda in which you can handle the capacity planning. In these times we are searching for a way for co-workers to reserve a desk in our building. Now we have to create a resource for each desk. Would be nice if we can accommodate this with a other type of agenda.

  15. Recover deleted outlook.com aliases

    Users should have a period of time - a week would be enough for many people - to undelete aliases that were deleted from accounts (often by kids on xbox.) When an account is closed, users have 60 days to change their mind - they should have a similar option when aliases are deleted.

    For an example of the problem this will solve, see this thread, https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook_com/forum/all/my-hotmail-account-was-deleted-while-my-son-was/2250b864-3712-4813-b736-e896e8146c25

  17. minutes

    add 45 minutes option in the list of time slot available in the endtime field when creating an invitation
    lot of people don't need a 30min or 1h meeting but 45 to have some buffer
    the same can be achieved by macro but we can ask all employee to create a macro for it
