  1. I'd like to be able to use Outlook for Mac exclusively, as I have lots of issues with Mac mail. However, I use the Share option all the time

    I email quite often a picture or file from Preview or Photos on my Mac. But I'm not able to share using Outlook. It only allows me to use Mac Mail.

  6. create an SAP connector for Flow and/or PowerApps

    There is an untapped potential for automation with SAP and Flow/PowerApps. Given the recent announcement about MS and SAP, this seems like a natural progression.

  7. improvement of the syntheses of the document and storage

    Dear Microsoft Inc,

    I suggest these instructions for your products:

    1°. A complete page for the document in order to give information (abstract, concepts, topical theme) for explaining the content of Excel, Word, Power Point document. This page shoud be read outside the environment of the document, for example, when one clicks the name of the archive.

    2°. When one cuts a paragraph (or number) to have three sequential storage data, in order to select from the three memories one of them.

    Best regards,

    Dr. Javier Alejandro Díaz Ponce

  8. Keep up the good work!

    I run a very small 2 man office and had a heck of a time feeling good about managing email and collaboration tools, etc. Office 365 has been nirvana for us. Thank you and please keep up the good work.

  9. Add the 'Featured/Shared' ability to Outlook.

    On starting Word or Excel previews are shown of standard or popular templates for the user to select.
    On clicking 'SHARED' a preview is shown that may be a company's standard form templates for users to open and fill in. The directory read here can be pointed for all users to one location.
    This feature is brilliant!! :-)

    On creating as new email, selecting from a central templates directory would be good too.

    The current method of saving things away is a bit disjointed. It would be so much better if Outlook had that selection built in.

  10. "Since the last update (in the past week or so) the find and replace function in Word has been unable to find the "upside down quote marks"

    Since the last update (in the past week or so) the find and replace function in Word has been unable to find the "upside down quote marks" that appear in languages such as German and Polish. I used to be able to copy them into the search box, but this no longer works. This is critical for the work I use Word for. So I don't have a suggestion, I have a demand: Fix this or lose me as a customer.

  11. Allow external people to book a time on your calendar for an appointment

    This idea is so I can provide a custom link to potential clients / current clients to book a meeting time based on a type of request.

    Similar to programs such as, , calendly.com and hubspot bookings.

  13. Cache settings for public folders.

    I would be nice to have the possibility to set the cache for public folders, roomfolders etc in outlook. Not only for standalone mailboxes.

    Thank you.

  14. Office Licensing

    Allow us to opt out of the MS "Sign In" during installation. We have a frickin license key, that should be good enough.

  15. View Names of all Sharing a OneDrive file/folder

    It is not possible to quickly see and track a list of individuals names/emails who you have allowed to share an item. You can only click on the avatar icons one by one-- and if there are many then that is unsatisfactory.

  16. Have private note entering facility on 0365 emails

    Include a feature similar to that of Notes on Presenter's View in power point. This is important to capture the rationale for certain decisions which are communicated via email. Very often one finds it difficult to recall after sometime, the rationale for such decisions. Only the sender should see these notes.

  18. Please don't retire OWA if removal from quarantine will continue to be required for Outlook app

    We rely on the OWA app for staff use on personal and BYOD devices. The OWA app permits staff/boards/commissions/etc to check email on their personal phones in a manner that does not permit them to download mail to their phones and thus does not make the devices themselves subject to public records disclosure. Restricting users to a client also offers us an additional level of authentication, as well. If we are forced to switch to the Outlook app, we would then have to remove users from quarantine which not only requires administrator intervention, but would users the ability to download…

  19. Allow Office apps to override Windows High Contrast

    It's important for Office apps (especially PowerPoint and Excel) to show their actual colors during construction, even if Windows High-Contrast mode is being used to make the rest of the desktop and apps easier to use. Please make it an option in Office apps to override the Windows High-Contrast mode. (Generally, High-Contrast is very helpful, but in PowerPoint and Excel it makes the presentation appearance practically impossible to gauge).
