We use Outlook a lot being in the corporate world. I am a software developer and we often deal with sensitive and secure information.
When we send any screenshot with sensitive or secure information over email, we need to mask it for security purpose and to meet the obligations of standards. It is now so difficult with Outlook As do not have better image edit options. All that we can do it crop and some basics.
I would love to see better image edit options in MS-OUTLOOK and MS-WORD. Like mask/ hide a certain sensitive and secure data on the image (usually screenshot) based on user selection (mouse selection of the area to be masked and making that making permanent upon sending the email or saving the MSword document to ensure security. The recipient should not be allowed to unhide and view the sensitive info once the email is sent or the document is saved after edit (When the user hits Ctrl +S or save and close the document) ).
This will immensely help many corporate users of MS-Office and Outlook. With the current version of MSword/ Outlook, we do not have a facility to mask data directly and we depend on MSPaint to mask the data and paste it to MSword/ Outlook. This takes a lot of time and not pleasant. Usability of this product is affected because we do not have better image edit option in MSword and Outlook.Dhanush M supported this idea ·
