  1. Difference between ANSI and UNICODE PST?

    As I know about both Outlook PST files type such as ANSI and UNICODE PST. ANSI used in Outlook 97, 98, 2000, and in 2002 edition and UNICODE which is a advance type used by Outlook 2003, 2007, 2010, 2013 and 2016 editions.

    But I would like to know what are other main difference between these two types.

  5. Combine and consolidate different Microsoft Apps where possible

    I am using the Office 365 for Business Ecosystem and it appear that there is often a lot of over lap between different apps in terms of their functions, and they could be combined.

    It often appears that many competing single products offer the same functionality as combinations of several of the bundled Microsoft Apps.

    For example, Microsoft Teams, Planner, Microsoft To Do, Tasks in Outlook, Yammer, Groups, Skype

    All seem to feature elements of communication, task/project management and scheduling with team work.

    It would be great to see these consolidated into a simpler product offering where one communication platform…

  7. Provide secure file upload to Office 365

    Business requires that all manner of documents containing confidential information be transferred to the company. However Office 365 does not provide a feature to collect these confidential documents without using email. Email encryption is not ready for prime time and most technology users are confounded by it. I note that Citrix ShareFile does off secure document upload capability.

  9. Enable message tracking by domain.

    A spammer can fake multiple addresses from a single domain to send thousands of messages. Doing the domain search rather than the sender's exact address would make it easier to prepare receipt reports.

  10. PTO dates in Signature

    Need a way to put Personal Time Off dates to be appended in signature may be at-least a week before PTO start date.
    example, if I am on PTO fro 1 jan 2018 to 15-jan-2018, I should be bale to set this date range somewhere and outlook should append message like " On PTO from 1 Jan 2018 to 30 Jan 2018".

  12. Replicate the ability to see tasks in calendar view in Office 365 Outlook online

    Using Outlook to manage my work the calendar view with tasks is how I run my day to day work. A simple view of the work to be done today - calendar appointments and tasks in one! Why is the ability to see tasks in the calendar view not available in 365 online? It spoils a near perfect workplace.

  13. Publisher to be able to Hide Pages (from printing and saving as PDF)

    I like to have an option to Hide page(s) that I don't want to print or send to printing (save in PDF). It can be used to have a backup/draft pages in a document without deleting them. (Similar capability is available in PowerPoint.)

  14. viewing rooms and equipment from "New Meeting"

    When creating a new meeting in Outlook 365 (desktop app or web), there's a drop-down for rooms, but no rooms appear. The only way to view rooms is to view the entire Global Address Book, which is lengthy and can be difficult for users to find the rooms. Similarly, booking a piece of equipment. In fact, there is no option to view equipment, except for viewing the entire GAB. This should certainly be a quick and useful fix to Outlook

  16. Office 365

    I found that office 365 doesn't support Maldives language yet, which made me to face really difficult time, while trying to install it in a Mac Pro and when the country/region list dropped and couldn't find Maldives. But to my knowledge that in Microsoft office there is Maldives also that supports the language that Maldivian official writing.

  17. Reconsider retiring Skype for Business and Microsoft Teams for Windows 10 Mobile

    Microsoft announced it is retiring Skype for Business and Microsoft Teams for Windows 10 Mobile. I would ask they reconsider this and instead only retire the apps when support for Windows 10 Mobile itself is retired (Dec 2019). Microsoft marketed Windows 10 Mobile for the enterprise as recently as last year with the HP Elite X3 Windows 10 Mobile device. Many companies have invested in this technology for their businesses and would be losing key Office 365 capability with the retirement of these two apps. These apps are already stable and working great. Why not leave them in the Microsoft…

  20. Office 365 OS

    Microsoft should make an Office 365 OS (similar to Chrome OS). It would be great for executives and basic users who just need access to Office 365 apps and nothing else. It would be fast, lightweight and less susceptible to issues . Make it domain managed as well. Thanks
