  1. Time Zone displayed on Office Contact card should appear in the viewers language, not the language of the contact

    When you view the contact card of a coworker from their name in Skype for Business or Outlook, it displays a Current Time field If that user is online. Unfortunately, it displays the time zone info in the language of the contact not the viewer. So when an English user views a German coworker's card to tell what time it is there the time zone is displayed as "Mitteleuropäische Sommerzeit" instead of "Central European Summer Time". It would also be nice if it showed off the GMT offset. This information is helpful for multinational teams when planning meetings or impromptu…

    • Different Footers and headers

      Please add an option to footer and header options in word program so that we can have different footers and headers in every page. Now we should break the pages to have different footers and this causes some problems. For example if you want to edit that text again you may shorten it and then the text may finish at the middle of the page and the rest of it goes to the next page; just because of this page break. Please add this ability. Thanks in advance.

      • Outlook - mark discarded drafts as READ

        Every time i discard a mail draft because I decided not to send it, it is put to my deleted items folder as UNREAD. But you can be sure that I KNOW what I wrote, so why not put it on READ when I discard it?

        • Allow first choice, second choice, etc for room resources when scheduling recurring meetings

          If you schedule a recurring meeting invite and the room is not available for any instance, Outlook declines all instances.

          Outlook should allow you to select a preferred room and then one or two alternate rooms to use in the event of conflicts. You should then receive an exception report for instances where the backups were scheduled in place of the preferred room resource.

            • Stop disregarding the "Hyperlink" style

              Although I agree that the "Hyperlink" style in Microsoft Word is a special style, I strong oppose treating it as if it is invisible or second-class style. Specifically:
              1. It is impossible to have all hyperlinks selected via the Style pane. (The only exception is when I apply "Hyperlink" style to an arbitrary range of text.)
              2. Custom formatting applied to hyperlinks do not appear in the Style pane. (e.g. If I select a word and press the Bold button, a new "Bold, 10pt" appears in my Style pane, except when I do this to a hyperlink.)

              • Office templates to be made available through office365

                My company has a set of templates that are distributed to each person's machine via a software delivery infrastructure. This feels archaic (and doesn't work all the time - proved by the fact that I've been here five months and don't have the templates on my machine) but is necessary because there's currently no other way to do it (that I know of).

                Given we are an Office365 customer it occurs to me that it would be alot easier if Office365 had a mechanism for distributing such templates. To my mind this should be as simple as our template designer…

                • Fix hyperlinks when saving as PDF

                  Hyperlinks embedded in MS Word are no longer "clickable" after saving as a PDF.

                  This has been a long-standing issue, with a support article from 2011 that optimistically suggested that this might be fixed in a future service pack: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2637026

                    • Outlook.com easier setup

                      Outlook 2016 still appears to use the same account setup process as it has done for maybe 10 years (or longer?). Outlook.com users with two factor authentication enabled still need to go through the process of creating an app password, rather than Outlook spawning a web view to send an authentication request. The user experience of setting up an email account is bad one, and needs to be improved.

                            I have (and many of my customers also) a few accounts in Outlook. During the day will come many email to all accounts. I want display all new emails in one view. So can Outlook 2016 know:

                            - showing uinread email from all accounts

                            There can be done with macro with VBA, or redirect all account to one pst (in older version very favorite solution), but both are bad. Define searching pattern with VBA takes lot of time and don't work on 100% (sometimes it's impossible to mark item as read etc..) and redirect…

                                  • Office 2013 - Scheduled task for Subscription Heartbeat

                                    Installation of Office 2013 seems to include a scheduled task called "Office 15 Subscription Heartbeat" which runs a file in the "Program Files" folder, using a reference to %ProgramFiles%. If you have 32 bit Office installed on a 64 bit version of windows 8.1, this scheduled task runs and fails every night and after 6 months, users receive warnings that their software isn't licenced. Could this be fixed, so the correct location is referenced?

                                      In Outlook you can preview attachments without opening them. Word can open docx files and therefore they can be previewed. Word can also open PDF files, but why can they not be previewed?

                                      • enhance "recent documents" view

                                        In recent documents (in office 2010 at least) you have just recent documents.
                                        it would be good if you could see "read" vs "worked on" in this pane, so that if I have someone send me a bucket of documents to review, but all I do is read them, they wont displace the things I'm working on recently... if this functionality exists already I cant find it but I would find it very useful.
