  3. Include a return path in Out of Office answers, else the DKIM / DMARC check fails

    There might be a legit reason for not having a return path, mail loops or whatever that I'm not aware of.. What I discovered was that we got a lot of DMARC failures and it was legit mail about "I'm out of office" the email DKIM check failed due to the missing return path, if that could be added I would not have the "dmarc failure spam" about our legit emails.

  4. Add a Universal inbox option to Outlook for Windows like ALL the other email apps out there for mac and others

    Outlook 365 / 2019 / 2016 etc... Why not add a universal inbox option like the ability to add this as a favorite even - one that consolidates multiple inboxes much like Outlook for mac or mail on the mac or many other top rated email apps out there? This has been a much desired feature in Outlook for Windows for a LONG time now and nothing much has changed in it not being added.. seems odd to me.

  5. Display other's (shorter) working hours when scheduling appointments

    I work part time, six hours a day. I can set working hours e.g. from 9am to 3pm, times outside of that are shown in gray.
    Nevertheless, this not shown when someone else plans to create an appointment with me. So he can assume that I'm present until 5pm, and books an appointment for me, after 3pm.
    I don't want to set a recurring 'blocker' for that purpose, because to me that's exactly what working hours should be used for.

  6. Outlook 365 should have the option to link Outlook (Exchange) and iCloud (IMAP/SMP3) accounts, it is already available in Windows 10 Mail.

    Outlook 365 should have the option to link Outlook (Exchange) and iCloud (IMAP/SMP3) accounts. This feature is already available in Windows 10 Mail, and Windows 10 Mail is way less sophisticated and feature rich.

  8. Make it so Onenote notebooks stored in onedrive are available at each end, instead of an internet shortcut to the file

    Currently one drive notebooks can be saved locally or in the cloud such as one drive. When i visit my onedrive online it displays a single file for the notebook. However when I move to the one drive folder on my pc, it is saved as an internet shortcut to this file. This is because when saved locally the notebook is actually a folder, with each section saved as a file in it. Is there a way that the notebook can become one file? like a word document? so the notebook can appear at both ends of one drive, and…

  11. Microsoft Merge [Manage Recurring Connector Reservations] When on a waitlist for a recurring reservation, users can see # of people ahead

    When you are on the waitlist for a recurring connector reservation, you should be able to see how many people ahead of you are on the waitlist.

    This will match the behavior of a one-off connector reservation, where the service says you are "3rd in line" for that trip.

  16. Add task regeneration to To-Do recurrence options

    Add "regenerate task every n [days|weeks|months|years]" option in To-Do, as you have in Outlook desktop task Recurrence options. This is my most used task option for recurring items, since things don't always happen on a set day and time, but are still periodic in nature.

  17. SharePoint view Flows needs to have view permissions just like view workflows on old sharepoint

    Under the Flow menu on a list when you go to view Flows if it was not shared with you then you will not see any extisting Flows. If the user has read / view permissions then they should then be able to view Flows just like you could view workflows on old SharePoint. Or Maybe the request is for Flows to inherited list permissions just like PowerApps customized forms do,

  18. Office365 forums to have auto translation feature

    The discussions or ideas are usually posted in English in this community. It would be great to have an inline auto-translated feature so that feedback from someone who do not read/write English can be reflected.
