Microsoft Corporation Complaint - Outlook's Missing Features
REDMOND, WASHINGTON -- It boggles my mind that the designers of this program would miss some CRITICAL features. Here's a list of features that even the most unskilled computer user would have thought of.
1) An easy, effective way of backing up and transferring Outlook data (contact and calendar information). Even their online explanation for how to find their stupid .pst file is wrong. Telling you to go and find a file the is "hidden" by default. How dumb can you get.
How easy to have a file command that for data backup that asks you what you want to back up and where you want to put it. Then, when you make that information available to a second or new computer, the computer finds it and asks if you want to add that data to the new Outlook.
And they say they do excellent consumer testing.
2) Printing envelops. Another dumb system. It allows you to select your contact file, but then it automatically select all of your contacts and makes you go through one at a time to eliminate the ones you don't want. Either that, or make up a file for every situation. Again, how easy to have a "select all" toggle. Dumb, dumb, dumb.
Additionally, it doesn't allow you to save your envelop settings and they have to be redone after every single printing. Don't they realize that you might want to address envelops differently from typing letters. Again, how easy have have a "Save Settings" button in the envelop area.
The Outlook designers should be given their "pink slips" immediately.
