    We tried to make an attempt to personalize our email communicatoins with our customers. To do that we decided to add profile pictures so our customers could put a face with a name. It turns out it can't be done according to MS tech support. Wow does that seem crazy. it only works internal to your company. We can't be the only people who want to personalize our email. Not sure why it can't pass through the profile picture if it can send so many other pictures! Please fix this soon!!!

  3. Add Background Color in View Settings Conditional Formatting

    Under Advanced View Settings -> Conditional Formatting, you can only change the font and text color of your inbox.

    Would love a background colour option which colours the inbox item's background similar to the 'flagged' message

  5. Dragging emails to folders

    Dragging emails to folders is a pain in the butt. When I hold down the mouse button to drag the email, the email will open up if I don't begin the drag within a micro-second of clicking the button. I should be able to hold down the mouse button for at least a second or two before I begin the drag.

    This new system is such a pain in the butt...especially when using the track pad instead of a m,ouse. I have to sometimes make 4-5 attempts to drag an email. I WILL stop using Outlook at some point if…

  7. Make it easier to find the option to edit the survey in Excel. Going to the Insert page is counterintuitive.

    With the change in Forms, I could not figure out how to edit a form I made previously, using the Survey function in Excel. With help from a rep I could only contact through my site admin (grmble) I found the option buried under Survey on the INSERT page. I only go to Insert when adding something new; editing a survey should not be on that page.

  9. Add Length in Level, Comp Plan, and Plan Number to Manager Hub

    I just got access to Manager Hub and I am impressed! It aggregates so much valuable data into a single place, however there are a couple of additional pieces of data that would be helpful to add.

    Years at Microsoft is valuable to know, though it is sometimes even more important to know length in level -- how long has someone been at their current level or how long it has been since they were last promoted.

    Similarly it would be very useful to incorporate some compensation data -- base salary, comp plan, and plan number specifically.

    Add those additional…

  11. Pop up for encryption emails

    I would like to see a pop up for the encryption tool to ask you prior to sending the email if you would like that email encrypted or not. Just like when you are cleaning out your deleted items and it says are you sure you want to permanently deleted the selected files. This way the encryption tool can be turned on for all emails and the user has the option to send it encrypted of non encrypted.

  12. Use local timezone or display the timezone in the .msg file previewer in OneDrive

    When .msg files are stored in Sharepoint / OneDrive and displayed via the web previewer, the times are displayed in UTC +0 timezone even if the region settings for OneDrive are set to another time zone.This affects the "Sent On" time for the email.

    Suggesting to either:
    - Use the region settings from OneDrive when displaying dates / times in the .msg previewer to display dates / times in the local time zone
    - Specifically state that the date / time is UTC to reduce user confusion when looking at time / dates.

  15. It would be great if we could have a check out functionality in the "Mark attendance" feature in Kaizala.

    In the Kaizala app, there is a feature to mark your attendance. However, we can only perform the "Check-in" function, there is no "Check-out" function.

  16. consider returning the office 365 icons back to their original colours following the latest update

    When using Outlook 365 programme on the PC (i.e. not using it via a web browser) the icons at the top of the screen, as well as those displayed when moving or copying an appointment to another application e.g.Tasks, have lost their colour, and are now in very simplified outline form.

    Please could they be restored back to how they were a few weeks ago?

    if we use"noreply" in the primary SMTP address for shared mailboxes we can not search a shared mailbox as a shared folder under any inbox. This has been tested with multiple tenants and it was working previously

  19. Eliminate member inclusion in email rules involving a distribution group as the sender

    In Office 365, if a user has a rule set up to move an email sent from a distribution list's email address to a specific folder, not only does it move emails sent from that address, it moves emails sent from MEMBERS of that distribution list as well. The workaround for now is to create the rule as such: Create a rule -> For all messages I receive -> Has the specific words in the sender address -> Add the name of the group -> Move the emails to specific folder -> Finish
