  1. Feature Proposal for Outlook - Dynamic mail address list

    I would like to propose a new Outlook feature named „dynamic mail address list”.

    Background:
    Many companies and other communities are using a mail based communication approach e.g. to coordinate project related tasks.
    Mail address lists are typically defined statically and include many receiver addresses.
    A specific mail for a dedicated subject is then distributed to a large number of mail addresses but many receivers of the mail are not interested in this specific subject. Subsequent mails for the subject are always distributed to all mail addresses again. Checking mails is in general getting more and more inefficient for individual…

    • Make signature in outlook available through office js

      We want to set a different signature in the mail body from the outlook add-in. Right now altering the whole html of the mail body makes this quite impossible, especially because it is different on all different platforms. (win, mac, online different browsers)

      • Pinnable Task Pane Support for Mac and OWA

        The Pinnable Task Pane is a great piece of functionality, because as the user is navigating through their Inbox it is cumbersome to have to click a button to open an add-in for each email.

        Support for this (at least as per the documentation) is limited only to Outlook 2016 for Windows.

        This Idea captures the work to enable this functionality for both OWA and the Mac desktop client.

        • Allow comments needed for VML

          Because the Outlook client uses Word as rendering the use of HTML is very limited. To work around this comments like this "<!--[if gte mso 9]>" is used to insert VML when rendered in a client.

          However these tags are stripped away when using item.body.setSelectedDataAsync to insert HTML from an add-in.

          Please allow these comments tags to control VML to be passed through.

          • Enable Add-ins while creating a meeting in office 365 group calendar in outlook 2016

            It should be possible to use Add-in while creating meetings in group calendar. This works in Outlook Web but not in native.

            Our applications helps to create structured agenda for a meeting but since the add-in is disabled while creating meeting in group calendar, we cant use the app in group calendar using Outlook 2016 native.

            Currently in Outlook native Add-ins are not supported in shared mailboxes this is mentioned in details in the below Stack Overflow question.

            • Add ContextMenu Extension Point to modern Outlook Add-ins

              It would be useful to allow Outlook Add-ins to have context menu extension points to allow for more granular action controls (e.g. Right-clicking THIS specific email allows me to act on it with THIS add-in)

              It seems that the context menu isn't off limit to all Office programs, such as Word or Excel, but there is not any support for Outlook.

              • Refresh mailbox view in Outlook 2016 Client

                I am currently developing an Outlook Add-In with JavaScript. In the background, I use EWS to update emails.

                Problem: In Outlook, the modified mail is not refreshed. Please add the possibility to trigger a refresh with JavaScript.

                • Allow custom HTML to be set in Outlook without it being mangled

                  I would like to be able to modify or set signatures in emails sent by all users. Currently, Outlook 2016 still mangles the custom HTML I create and replaces any images with a PNG. I am trying to have an SVG logo with a fallback to a VML logo for Outlook clients with a fallback beyond that to text only. I can make this work where it displays an SVG in supported clients, displays the VML in Word, and shows the text otherwise. However, the once I hit send in Outlook, it removes all of the custom HTML, converts the…

                  • Get the currently selected text in read mode

                    In Outlook (web addition for mac) add a method to get the currently selected text in the body of an email (like you can do with Office.context.mailbox.item.getSelectedDataAsync in compose mode) while in read mode.

                    • Please improve Outlook JS Ribbon functionality

                      Current limited functionality of the Ribbon prevents users from adopting Outlook JS solutions. Please address points below.

                      1. Allow user to specify Explorer Ribbon in Manifest.
                      2. Allow user to dynamically change contents of explorer/inspector Ribbon.
                      3. If I create a custom tab for MessageReadCommandSurface, Explorer will display the tab; however, if I create a custom tab for any other surface, Explorer will not display it.
                      4. If I create a custom tab for MessageReadCommandSurface, then controls from the other surfaces will not be displayed in the Explorer Ribbon regardless whether I specify default tab or custom tab for other…

                      • Make values of Appointment available in Organizer mode

                        I would like to see the same property values being available to the Organizer (compose mode) as are available to the Attendee (read mode). Currently you can create an appointment and sent it out to the attendees and then if you reopen the appointment afterwards then the object doesn't even have an ID that you can read or retrieve and that is just one thing - there are many other attributes that aren't available and that can't be retrieved async either.

                            • Bug: Ribbon buttons from other-than-MessageReadCommandSurface surfaces do not show up in the Explorer Ribbon.

                              1. Outlook 365 Desktop - Build 8431.2153
                              2. Install add-in from here:https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook/add-ins/addin-tutorial
                              3. Right click on the Explorer Ribbon and check Collapse Ribbon
                              4. Select a draft message
                              5. Click on the Home tab - Ribbon expands and buttons for the Add-In MessageComposeCommandSurface are NOT shown.

                              If the user does not Collapse the Ribbon - buttons corresponding to the MessageComposeCommandSurface are shown properly.

                              Thank you.

                                • Relative placement of custom group in the ribbon

                                  It would be nice to place a custom group of controls in the Office tab relative to an existing build-in tab.
                                  E.g. place my custom group before the built-in clipboard group in the compose message extension point.

                                  • Outlook App for Android - Allow users to choose any tone on their phone for email notification

                                    Please reference Chat session with reference # 1413252451.

                                    Allow users to choose any tone from their device for a notification tone rather then a prefabricated list of options. I have 7 email address and would like my own tones for each one.

                                    • Add a search option for the mail folders

                                      When you have several folders and you have to look for an specific one, sometimes it takes too long to find it so it would be nice to be able to search it.

                                          Provide an option to have the Outlook navigation bar appear at the side or at the top of the application window and permit Tabs that can be separated into a window of their own.
