How to Influence Outlook’s Design

Nov 10, 2017

Microsoft is constantly changing desktop Outlook, usually for better but occasionally for worse (one unfortunate change from October is mentioned here). But what many don’t know is that you can have a say in what features they add and remove. It’s called UserVoice and it’s built into Outlook—you just click a button and type in your suggestions. I am told by insiders that it is one of the main places Microsoft goes when looking for new features and user opinions.

If you have a suggestion on how to improve Windows desktop Outlook, here’s how to submit it:

  1. Click File at the top left of Outlook’s window.
  2. In the list on the left of the window that opens, about two thirds down, click Feedback.
  3. Click the Suggest a Feature button.
  4. Enter your idea in the web page that pops up. Or scan through existing new ideas and vote for them.

So yes, you have a voice. Are you going to use it?

    I joined the Microsoft Community Forum which has several sections including Outlook.
    This is a good place to put posts or check out topics. Often Forum Users have fixes or workarounds.
    Also , as one can read in Forum posts on particular topics , Microsoft does not respond adequately despite the frequency of the issue being raised.
