  1. to optimize performance of Outlook

    Please work on the performance of Outlook when toggling between different mails or folders. Also switching between Mail and calendar is too slow.
    Compare with Apple Mail.

    • Multiple calendar & to-do lists support in Outlook's sidebar

      Currently, the Outlook (desktop app) only supports items in the To-Do bar from the default calendar that is set.

      I suggest you allow us to select which calendar's or data accounts to show here. It is a common scenario that during the day I obviously want to see my next work appointment(s) here, and in the evening what I have in my private diary.

      • Adapt scaling for PowerPoint with multiple monitors and different DPI's

        All Office Apps like Excel or Word adapt the scaling if the Windows is moved from a Monitor with high DPI to a Monitor with low DPI settings. The only exception is PowerPoint. It keeps the large scaling which makes it practically unusable even on large screens (with lower DPI) because all ribbons are huge. The rest of the Office gang can do this much better!

        • Virtual Powerpoint presentations

          Using Microsoft PowerPoint it would be an advantage if it was possible to tag some of the slides, i.e. a subset of slides out of a large number, to be part of a named virtual presentation that is stored within the master document. That way you avoid copying slides to different positions, thus avoiding updating several places or saving portions of the master in new PowerPoint documents. Note, the idea is similar tag slides as “hidden/visible” but with the strength to be able to save several virtual presentations within the master presentation. You would have a large master PowerPoint document…

          • OneNote for iPhone: Please enable handwriting and drawings in OneNote for iPhone

            Dear Sirs.:

            I am a heavy user of OneNote on Windows 8.1 and in my iPhone.

            OneNote is really a fantastic application for me because it allowed me to replace many paper notebooks, in which he could not search or sort the topics. OneNote has facilitated my daily life.

            However, with the last update 2.12 for the iPhone and the description given of this update on App Store, I assumed that you had enabled handwriting in OneNote for iPhone, however it was not so: only you had enabled search writing hand. I was very disappointed when I realized that.

            I…

            • Outlook - rename items in favorites

              Favorite folders is perfect feature! So If I have more folders from a multiple accounts in favorites, I would like rename someones. Yes, I know I can rename folder in account, and if I have multiple folders some name in favorites folders, they are completed with account name, but if favorite folders is only "link" to specific folders in specific account, why cannot I affect name of this "link"?

              Thank you.

                Server side search of outlook.com email addresses from Outlook:

                Using Microsoft Outlook 2013, I can add @outlook.com email addresses and configure them to sync locally only 1 month of email history. However, when I search for email from Outlook 2013, it should also do a server side search like the Windows 8.1 built-in Mail app does.

                  Using windows phone, it is possible to accept or decline meeting requests.

                  But for moderation approval requests, (Exchange 2010+ email moderation features), the approvals cannot be done using windows phone !!!. Kindly embed that functionality because moderation have to be done instantly !

                  • meeting requests can be accepted / declined from windows phone, why our workflows approvals cannot be performed using outlook ?

                    it is most convenient to provide the approval using outlook as so in windows phone. because email system and access has been gracefully extended to windows phone system as well.

                    However you cannot integrate your work flow approvals to be done using outlook ?

                    like MS SCSM review approval work flows. I think it should be open option to send email which asks the user to supply yes/no and or comments or forms.

                    There are forms but cannot be used for this purpose.

                    Outlook is the defecto standard and be best used for this purpose.

                    • Esperanto support for orthography and grammar for office and Windows

                      Office and Windows support more than 100 languages among them also very small languages with less than 10000 speakers. There is always missing support for Esperanto despite the fact that only in Facebook there are more than 300000 Esperanto speakers (f.e. the group Esperanto on Facebook, there all discussions are only in Esperanto has more than 16000 members!). I cannot understand why Esperanto support for Esperanto is missing. Our company (Allsprachendienst Esperanto GmbH, Archstr. 2, CH-8613 Uster 3, http://allsprachendienst.ch) produces several magazines in Esperanto with the help of programmes of the office family. So we have an urgent need…

                        Lot of my customers (and I also) want sending emails with other FROM: header than is configured email address in account. In office 2013 is great feature where can I when composing message click on FROM button and add more email address.

                        In Exchange there looks working half-fine (if i define other email address, but "my name" in sender is username from added email address)
                        In IMAP is working bad - Oulook add Sender header with original email address and after in INBOX showing "on behalf of" string
                        Example with exchange (I added info@robertbisom.cz "identity", original address was rob@robertbisom.cz)

                            I sold a few dozen of O365 subscriptions last year and I installed O365 desktop on my customer's devices. There was a lot of clients, who have also other emails (like google, own email on own providers etc.), where can connect only with IMAP/POP.

                            It was always been a few devices on everyone customers, that didn't work correctly with IMAP. Some problems was:

                            - duplicate email (and not only duplicate, some mails was for example 8-times)

                            - never ending folder syncronization

                            - displaying only emails from till a few monts back, then a large gap, and then displaing mails from…

                            • Outlook - redirect "system" folders of accounts

                              It would by fine can redirect some mails like sent, deleted, spam, archive to other folders than outlook offer. Yes, I know, that many mail servers know XLIST command and I think it's good, but there are some situation I want (and my customers too) redirect some folders to other (for example folder in other accounts or specific folders other than XLIST say).

                              Older Outlooks knew it some version knew redirect sent mails, other version knew redirect deleted mails, other version both.. It's good feature, why outlook isn't offering this now (or in 2016?:-))

                                • windows phone sync to office outlook on usb and wifi hotspot

                                  Allow syncing through a USB cable, local WiFi network or local WiFi hotspot between Windows Phone and a desktop's Office Outlook. That single shortcoming prevents me from ever considering having a Windows Phone. It is not always practicable or desirable to sync through the Cloud and that is all that Windows Phone offers - internet connections might be metered or roaming fees might apply. Android does it [consider taking a shortcut by buying out FJSoftware's unsurpassed Android app MyPhoneExplorer at http://www.fjsoft.at/en/home.php and reworking it for Windows Phone]

                                  • Conditional formating of pivot charts

                                    The pivot chart in Excel should allow conditional formating of data series, i.e. select a red color for all lines matching a given condition. Ideally, it should even be partially automatic. Currently, the coloring is completely random and unrelated with the data. But it makes a lot more sense having some color or marker setting, i.e. same color per column of the pivot table, to visually describe the underlying links.

                                      • Appointment Recurrence - Choose Every # Weekday

                                        On the Appointment Recurrence screen I want an option to choose every # weekday.

                                        I'm trying to schedule a 5 day long event (Monday - Friday) that occurs every 14th weekday. If this were simple (every 15th weekday) I could use the weekly option - every 3rd week, but this odd recurrence pattern causes a seemingly 3 week pattern for 5 weeks, then there is a single 2 week, then the cycle repeats.

                                        The daily option lets you choose the number of days to skip, but not the weekday option.

                                        I've considered using every 20th day, but there is no…

                                        • Esperanto keyboard support

                                          Currently Windows does not natively support Esperanto keyboard. The Esperanto special characters can only by typed with additional keyboard drivers (such as EK). I therefore request native Esperanto keyboard support.

                                          Vindozo ankoraŭ ne ebligas la tajpadon de esperantaj literoj (ĉ, ĝ, ĥ...), sen akcesoraj programoj. Mi tial sugestas, ke tiu malavantaĝo estu forigita.
