  1. Change Calendar Meeting Owner or Organizer

    There should be a way to transfer the owner or organiser of a meeting in Outlook. If I set up a meeting up or - more commonly - a recurring meeting but then someone else takes on the running of it, there is no way I can transfer the ownership to another member of staff so they get updates on people's availability.

    In our organisation the EAs often set up meetings from their Execs diaries (because they have the best visability of diaries and can move meetings). But they're not the ones owning the meetings. If you're an invitee (not…

      • Expressions

        The user should be able to permanently disable "expressions." I use Hotmail mainly for professional work, and the expressions are not professional. It is highly annoying to have text such as "Thank you" be highlighted, and half the screen be used up by emojis and gifs that I will never use.

        • Sort Rules in alphabetical order

          Please add a button to sort the rules in alphabetical order.
          I have many rules and this would really help me a lot (no more manual sorting).

          When the user clicks this button a warning should be shown, that the rules are executed in the order they are shown, so sorting alphabetically changes the order the rules are executed.

          I also have some (4 to 5) rules where the order is important.
          But here I can change the name of the rule so the position (and the execution order) is correct again.

          • Scheduled folder contains emails and I can't rename it or move the emails from there in bulk to another folder.

            SCHEDULED FOLDER... somehow one of my regular folders got renamed to "Scheduled" and is now treated differently than all the other folders. I thought I'd deleted my regular folder, but I do see the emails in this new Scheduled folder. However, I can't rename Scheduled. I can't highlight all the emails in that folder and move them in bulk to another folder. I can do both of these tasks with my regular folders. I've had a very patient Microsoft support person working on this with me and it was suggested, finally, that I put this onto this site. If anyone…

            • Add-ins have disappeared

              It seems all references to add-ins have disappeared from the beta. Previously you could install add-ins from Settings > Manage add-ins and they would appear as a strip of icons at the top of an email.

              Are add-ins gone for good or have they just not made it to the beta yet?

              • Display plain text emails using a monospace font

                Many plain text emails are formatted expecting the font to be monospace and when it is not, the email can be difficult to read.

                • moving emails from the draft folder to inbox or any other folder after moved to draft folder

                  You can't move any draft /not sent item that's not what I'm saying. In non beta version you can move emails to any folder including with draft folder. Also after moving that email to draft folder you can move that email to the original folder from the draft folder. In beta version this is not possible. This is convenient when writing email heavily depends on other emails and because switching between is easy. Please include this ability to new mail version.

                  • ISSUE - "MOVE" function eliminate folder navigation not see folder strucutre instead typing folder name- cannot remember them all

                    Major issue - Move mail has big headache in moving mail to file. The new beta eliminate and not show the folder structures including sub folders where you can choose where to file mail as in the standard version. Instead, it makes you to type in some key words of the folder or sub folders to pull them up - I guess try to test our memory? unfortunately most people are doing very good to memorize all the folder names. (2) more issue on the contextual menu of the "move mail" function when right-click on the mail to move -…

                      • unwanted linkedin suggestions

                        I guess I reached my point of disgust when my cursor hovered over the email of a dear friend of mine who has been deceased several years, and your helpful software offered me several people on LinkedIn with the same name. Not the same. The unasked-for integration with LinkedIn is a huge privacy hole. I'm not paying you money for telling Linked in the names of my contacts or former contacts. I do not use LinkedIn or any social networking. I care about my privacy. Please stop this abuse or at least give us a way to turn it off.

                          • Custom schedule in Outlook calender

                            We hope to add a new function to outlook that can create a custom schedule in calender.For example, We want to use for an irregular meeting with different days of the week or time.

                            Because it is inconvenient for the following reasons.

                            If participants are added, it will be necessary to change the contents again in all meetings.

                            Also, "Notes" has a custom schedule function and Irregular meeting can be set up.

                                As a basic functionality, add a feature to see which email address the message was sent to. Right now, when I hover the mouse over the recipient/contact name, Outlook gives me all the Contact info, with ALL the person's email addresses, so it is not clear which address was used. This is BASIC stuff!

                                • please include hierarchical view of folders in the "move to" folder drop down

                                  I use high level folders and lower level sub-folders to organize emails. Using the "Move to" folder drop down in the old version of outlook led (after a couple clicks) to a view that included only the TOP LEVEL FOLDERS, which could be expanded to show sub-folders if desired. The new version of outlook has messed this up. Now, when one uses the "move to" command, and goes to "all folders" ALL of the folders are displayed including both TOP LEVEL folders and SUB-Folders all in sequential order. This makes no sense at all. For one thing, the folders are…

                                    The font in my messages in the inbox is so tiny I can barely read it! Tried to get help from support, but they had no answer, just sent me here. I wish this wasn't forced on me.

                                    • No Deletion of Mails in Connected Accounts

                                      If you delete emails from a connected account in Outlook.com, you won't see those changes when you go to your connected account. And this despite IMAP connection! Why is there this completely impractical restriction in use?

                                        • pictograms

                                          When I write 'Marathon' as title of an appointment, the shoe is introduced as pictogram (even though it is a skating event ;-) ). When I click to insert a pictogram, I doe not see the shoe. Bug? Do we see all the possible pictograms?
                                          Could more pictograms be added?
