Outlook Notes Scroll Bars

Not open for further replies.


I have recently finished re-speaking to Microsoft's Outlook team again and found out the "proper" way to submit feature requests.

• Outlook Notes Scroll Bar - If you're not happy with the fact that there are STILL no scroll bars in the Outlook Notes component (Remember that even the ancient Windows Notepad.exe has scroll bars, as well as Windows Mobile Notes!!! However WinVista & Win7 Sticky Notes don't have scroll bars which may have something to do with the underlying form that Outlook Notes may also be using.), then PLEASE provide feedback to Microsoft. After speaking with Microsoft's Supportability Program Managers, they stated that my request was the FIRST time they heard about this issue, and that they need to receive MULTIPLE requests EVERY MONTH to create an internal BUG# to first document this request, so make sure they continue to hear about this EVERY MONTH until it is implemented! Save a reminder in your personal calendar application to click on the following link and re-submit your request, like I am doing at the beginning of each month, until this feature is added to the current or next version of Office!.

• Improvement Suggestions - Use the following "Microsoft Supportability Program Managers (SPM)" link to submit your suggestion/request (https://Feedback.Office.Microsoft.com). Note that community participants may vote for suggestions and Microsoft may use the votes to help prioritize features in upcoming versions, but most important of all Microsoft needs MULTIPLE requests EVERY MONTH for this feature to put it higher in the the list of fixes!!!

Sample message (1000 character limit):

"Hello, the most BASIC and USEFUL feature that I would like to see added to Outlook's Notes component are SCROLL BARS for notes! BOTH Windows Mobile Notes AND Windows Notepad.exe applications have had scroll-bars for years and they are BASIC application, so why not such a popular, advanced, and valuable tool as Outlook? PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE add this feature to the next Outlook update as many people have been waiting years for this feature! If scroll bars were added to Outlook Notes, then not only would both Outlook and Windows Mobile applications be consistent, but Outlook Notes would actually be more useable and advanced than the simple Sticky Notes program within newer versions of Windows. But I think even Sticky Notes should have scroll bars as the original Notepad.exe program still has them! And it would be fine if the scroll bars were the same color as the note, to keep a clean look, but at least you would have the functionality."
