  3. Make it possible to export Outlook calendar data inputted over years for use in another program.

    I have been using Outlook as my work calendar for about 20 years, but every time I try to export calendar items, it crashes Outlook. I've tried the pst scan program, I've tried safe mode, I've tried new computers/new accounts, and the crashing still occurs; I've tried helpdesk and they say there is no solution. Why punish loyal customers by failing to address such a basic compatibility issue?

  5. SharePoint Request Sign Off doesn't show who signed off

    Request Sign Off just showed up in modern document libraries. The workflow seems to work fine and the emails look great. My problem is the only thing that shows up in SharePoint is the Sign Off status just shows Approved. There is no information about who signed off, when it was signed off, and it doesn't show the comments. I would hope Microsoft will add those columns of information to the "All Documents" view.

  7. Implement spelling/dictionary support for additional digraph ligatures/graphemes such as “ij/IJ”

    Certain digraph ligatures and graphems are already supported in Office 365, such as “œ/Œ” in “sœur” (French), and “ff, fi, fl, ffi, ffl, ſt” in “first” or “suffix” (English). While others are not, such as “ij/IJ” in “zijn” or “bijzijn” (Dutch), and “æ/Æ” in “archæology” (English).

    It would be nice to have all of these accepted.

  8. When creating a calendar event that you can see if people youre inviting are already busy without having to share their calendars out.

    In an organization with no admin staff that one user could book an appointment in a public folder calendar and know whether the person that will be attending the event is busy at that time, like when you try to email someone in your organization that has out of office set it prompts before you send the email.

  9. allow users to run rules manually in Outlook

    I love rules. It helps me organize my emails easily. What I'd like to see is that I have the ability to run these emails manually. I'd like for my emails accumulate in my inbox, allow me to process these "new" emails and once I am done with them click on run rules button to clean them up and store in folders according to the rules I set. Of course there could be some that's automatically run when the email comes in but to manually run the rules would be peachy. If there is a method already, please forgive my…

  13. Include graphics with user instructions to show user where to find things

    Make your product and your instructions "idiot proof" by making user instructions simple and clear. Include graphics so users know how to follow the instructions easily.

  15. Fix problems with Office 365 in Android 8!

    After latest updates, Word and other Office 365 apps kraschs in Android 8. They open nicely for a few seconds, then krasch. (It worked before, and I have no problems in my tablet running Android 7.)
    I have restarted and reinstalled, but that does not help. Microsoft support give me only the advice to use this site.

  16. If we do not already have a voicemail symbol or character, it would be cool to add. Not common to use, but we have a list of those- ArticiaH

    I was in the process of updating a manual for my job and I was having a hard time locating the universal voicemail symbol/character to use. It would be cool to create this shortkey to add with the other 1000 we have. Or if someone already has the shortkey --- Help! Could not find it anywhere.

  18. Shared with me files visible in Office apps when you open from OneDrive

    Would be nice to be able to see Shared with me files in Office apps when you have OneDrive mapped. The open dialog browsing to your files in OneDrive doesn't show that.

  20. 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.
