  1. Add OpenPGP Support to Outlook 2016

    There currently is an open source project that develops an OpenPGP add-in to Outlook 2013 but it is really unstable and makes Outlook crash a lot.

    Check it out here: https://github.com/dejavusecurity/OutlookPrivacyPlugin

    I would love to get real PGP support built into Outlook 2016.

    • Make it easier and faster to contact Micrososoft

      Waited over 2 hours for my first call to be answered, then I was told they couldn't help. Then given a US telephone number which was incorrect and finally a UK number which also had me waiting for about an hour. Eventually I received a call from a very helpful person in India. Could have been much simpler.

        • Smart Guides for Word for Mac

          Word 2016 for Mac doesn't have smart guides to align objects.
          Word 2011 for Mac used them in publishing layout view which has also been threwn away in the actual version of word.
          Smart guides (or any kind of guides besides the grid) are absolutely essential to me.
          Powerpoint for Mac has them and everybody uses them. Making layouts in word 2016 is impossible without guides.
          At the moment I have to stay with word 2011…

          • Please add better instructions to install MS Office 365 business.

            Technical support was great once I got to them. It was a 2 hour long call all together. Had I known that simply I needed to assign the license prior to installing that would have been helpful and alleviated a good deal of frustration on my part. Furthermore when I contacted the number given for support I was placed into billing, there should be a number or even a more explicit option to get right to technical support, this would have cut down on atleast 3/4 of my call time.

            • More robust guides for PowerPoint

              It would great if you could set up guides in PowerPoint the same way you do in other design applications (columns and rows with gutters) so that you can set up a grid within the margins. It would also be great if you gave us more finite control over placement of the guides.

              • Text formatting options added to excel

                Since most people in my company use excel to create large, text heavy tables, it would be great to have the same control over cell padding, line spacing, and paragraph spacing that exists in word. I know, I wish people wouldn't use excel for this purpose, but it happens, and excel documents deserve to be formatted beautifully too.

                • Error Code / Message documentation

                  Provide FULL documentation for ALL error codes and messages encounterd in Office.

                  There is a huge collection of "new" error messages and error codes that are specific to Office 2013 and 2016 that have NO public, or even private/internal, documenation. For the last 3 years people have been encountering common problems that MS support has no idea how to fix, other than suggesting re-install. But that is useless if the problem is happening during an install.

                  I have collected some, but not all, of these new error messages and codes and some reported fixed for them. For any professional software…

                  • allow businesses with Office 365 E3 an option to install MSI

                    Within a large company, there are situations where some computers do not have internet access. If the users all have a license under the company's Office 365 E3 plan, there should be an option to install an MSI version, activate once, and persist without needing internet access. The company should not need to purchase additional Office 2013 product keys for this if they have an Office 365 E3 plan. It looks like this existed when Office 365 was on Office 2010, but disappeared when they moved to 2013.

                    • Calendar Invite Forward Disablement

                      As a meeting organiser, I like to keep control of my attendees. Outlook allows others to forward my invite without my control or permission. I have just learned that there is a cumbersome process through "Design A Form" to prevent this but it is not well known.

                      I'd like for the feature to be disabled with the option to allow people to forward OR a nice and easy Check Box in the invite to prevent forwarding my invites.

                        I suffered productivity losses when upgrading to Windows 10 vis-à-vis Office 365.

                        My credentials had shifted to my Live account and eliminated my Business Account.

                        Please maintain Microsoft Office desktop credentials.

                                    • Better Pop-up error messages

                                      We would like a better pop-up error messages specially for Outlook when an application need to access to the messaging data.
                                      For example actually on outlook when a add-in or a plugin try to access data, a pop-up appear to the user with the message "an application try to access data". The information on which application access the data is not given to user or the IT Team.
                                      This message could be improved by indicating the application or process that tried to connect to outlook.

                                      It will greatly improve the user experience and help the support team with precises informations.
