  1. Fix quick creating new event in Calendar

    When clicking button for 'New Event' upper left corner, all event features are available, and default settings from Preferences are followed. However if you double click on a time in the calendar to create a new event, the options are limited (unable to set status as 'Tentative', unable to set Reminder which is stuck at 15 minutes by default--not respecting the Preferences.

  3. allow a larger range for "text display size"

    allow a larger range for "text display size" in font preferences. the smallest size is still too large, and is much larger than the old version when set to the smallest size.

  4. Conversation Accessible from Single Email

    When a single email is open, provide a way to view the the rest of the thread, for instance a pane or drawer that can be toggled on an off for that window.

    The old version would open that in a separate window, which just becomes another window to manage when reviewing a thread. I can't find that feature at all in the preview.

  5. All Accounts (Unified) Inbox: Ability to use the Move menu options when multiple items are selected

    This is specific to the All Accounts/Unified Inbox:

    When a single mail item is selected, you are able to move it to a different folder from the right-click menu or from the toolbar. However, when multiple items are selected, the Move option in either menu is disabled. Limiting a user to only moving items one at a time, depletes the ability to be more efficient.

    This limitation only occurs when in the All Accounts/Unified Inbox. If I'm in an individual account's inbox the Move menu items are available for multiple items.

    Note: Selecting multiple times and dragging-and-dropping them to a…

  6. Only a single character of new message is shown (bug)

    I’m trying out the "New Outlook”. It’s nice, but for several of my messages, only the first character is visible. Please fix ASAP! In the meantime I’ll wait and keep using the regular Outlook version.

  7. Adding. end date. for all day. invites

    Love the new Outlook, iyts now the same as if you are on PC….However, the calender works differently, you can not book a week vaca without scheduling each day eiher separately or on a recurring invite. You need ot add start and end date so it can be one invite.

  11. Search results

    The search algorithm in Outlook misses numerous "matches" and defaults to weird settings like to: "ADDRESSEE". This would be fine except the search function will miss 10 emails that actual include said ADDRESSEE. Search capabilities should work like gmail search functionality -- you get clear results quickly. It doesn't miss any relevant emails

  12. Snooze to be enabled for Sent Items as well

    There are situation when you need to be reminded of an email which you have sent. For example, for follow-ups etc. Hence, the Snooze option should be available for Sent Items as well

  13. Remove "Delete all" for Sent items and archive

    I lost all my sent items because I accidentally right clicked my sent items and selected "Delete all". I thought I selected my Deleted Items folder.
    Only Deleted items should have that option in the right click menu

  14. In the new outlook view, under Junk mail there is no easy way to select all messages or a radio button to select multiple messages. Would be

    Can you add a radio button to enable multiple item selection of email messages? It used to be there.

  15. Email scheduling - Spark is still so much better at this.

    Email scheduling - Spark is still so much better at this. I want the ability to schedule emails, especially when working on weekends where I can schedule the send for Monday AM. This is a basic concept that should be a standard feature.

  18. Improve Usability by making it obvious which icon is a dropdown menu.

    Improve usability by adding a dropdown arrow to the right of all of the icons that are dropdown menus. Currently I have to click on the icon and hope it's a dropdown menu.

  20. Stop making changes! v16.38 stopped working with my All Accounts. This is becoming more annoying as time goes on.

    Used to be able to see all mail accounts in ALL ACCOUNTS folder. Now it shows some not all. Really irritating.
