  1. Outlook Close/Minimize to Tray

    At present when you close outlook, it exits application. I would request if there was an option to close or minimize Outlook to tray. Every other email client provides this option and it's very handy.

    • Get Inspiration from eM Client

      Outlook is so old fashioned even attaching an email in another email requires endless scrolling in the attachment dialog box. Or setup compose window and client side by side to drag and drop. I would request team to look at eM Client. It's light and powerful. Simple features like:

      1. Able to see communication history on the right side bar when I select a message in the main window. it's fast!
      2. Able to see only attachments that I've received from the sender
      3. Complete calendar and task activities related to that sender
      4. Very fast storage and retrieval.

      • Outlook - integrate with macOS (and iOS) Calendar/Contacts to avoid need for duplicate (battery hogging) sync

        One disadvantage of using Outlook on macOS is that you miss out on the native calendar/contact integration that uses of the in-box apps have (this is also a common problem with the Win10 in-box apps to a large extent). Hopefully there would be a way to make this seamless... at the moment I have to set up an extra (unnecessary) sync just so I can get a glance-able calendar on my Mac and iPad...

        • Fix MS Office 2016 Excel and PowerPoint Crashing for no [apparent] reason [since 2014]

          Ever since our office adopted MS Office 2016 and 365, Simple Excel Dashboards [.XLSM], and simple automation in PowerPoints [.PPSM]seem to cause crashing which is unpredictable. Even adjusting settings to just about every possible way there is no relief! 2013 did not crash this way.

          • PowerPoint 2016 - Bring Back Save as HTML

            In earlier versions of PowerPoint, one of the SaveAs options was save as HTM(L). Surprisingly (or not) in 2016 it was just [POOF!] Gone! That was really handy, even though not perfect, for helping develop simple internal help pages. In 2010 there was at least a workaround. Bring it back Please!

                • If Word could have tabs like Excel where all letters on a particular matter could be kept together.

                  If it could be possible to create tabs in Word (as in Excel). This would mean all correspondence in relation to a particular matter or to a particular person could be kept together on a tab.

                  • Excel 2013 - Patch Removal - Multiple ARP Entries

                    Hello Team,

                    This is regarding query for removal of Office patches.
                    When we install below any of patch, it creates approx. 33 ARP entries & i observed that each entry belongs to each MUI of that patch).

                    Ms-Office Product ID is : {90150000-0011-0000-0000-0000000FF1CE}

                    We want to uninstall above any patch completely through SILENTLY by using below command, but it's removing only one patch (1 out of 33 update ARP-entries).

                    • Please add support for wildcard searches in outlook address book - it takes me for forever to find anything if i dont know the exact name!

                      Make the address book search box work like the onenote search box. with a large number of emails - it would be great to be able to find something in it just because I know part of the word I am searching for.

                        I am a printer, we receive MS Office files (mostly Word and Excel), and if the client has used a font in their document that I do not have or do not have loaded, I don't get a report or an error that there are missing fonts. Sending a PDF is a great option but I have clients that do not understand computers well enough to guide them through the process, or customers will send files that need changes and they can't get back to their office in time. This is a real hindrance. Can it be added to at…

However, once closing it and open it again, the above notification doesn't appear and instead it open by itself in read only mode without informing me that it is being used by user X.

                              I have had a horrid time with support from the Level 2 technicians. They have not followed through with countless appointments that they have made with me. Despite having a case number for level 2 you can not talk with anyone until you go through the gauntlet of their initial level. Forget about asking for a manager. When they finally let you go to level 2 you can wait up to 1:15 minutes before you get a technician who claims that they can not help you as you already have a case number but they will have some one call…

For YEARS, MANY customers have been BEGGING for the ability to add images in Excel Online, and it has still not been accomplished. Shame on you for pretending to care about customer feedback when clearly you do not.

                                      Some words have alternate acceptable spellings; I would like to be able to choose a default spelling so that the alternate spellings show up as misspelled. Example: I prefer "judgment" over "judgement", so I want to be able to have "judgement" show up as INcorrect and/or have the option to autocorrect "judgement" to "judgment".

                                      • Update MS Access to be a Rapid Azure SQL Development Platform

                                        I've used Access for years and routinely rely on it to solve many day-to-day tasks within our company. It's still the quickest and easiest way to develop a thoughtful user interface with a basic data driven back end.

                                        Over the past year i've been working to port Access databases to an Azure SQL server. I'd love to have the flexibility that Access provides but with the capabilities of sharing the UI with everyone via Azure. It would be an easy way to drive more business to Azure.

                                          In the old Outlook 2010, 2013 we used to have the .NK2 file which manages the auto-complete feature but its always a pain to have to find it and then re-import it back, many clients use this as their contacts list. It would be great to create a simple tool to back up and restore this file on Office 365. Perhaps an alert to prompt user if they wish to backup their auto-complete list before uninstalling Outlook, then an option to import a .NK2 file.
