It looks like Microsoft didn’t do the best job with the stability and feature count of recently released Office 2016 and its programs. After facing a crash at login, Outlook 2016 users are now reporting that the ability to select multiple attachments in Outlook 2016 is missing.

Users started to complain about this missing feature on Microsoft forums a couple of days ago, and the received a ‘confirmation’ from Microsoft staff that ability to select multiple attachments is still missing from Outlook 2016. Apparently, Microsoft overlooked the fact that this feature is missing, so it released the final version of Outlook 2016 without it.

But it looks like people from Microsoft are aware of their mistake, as it was announced that Microsoft will bring this feature back to Outlook with the first upcoming update. “Not an intentional feature cut! We hear you. This feature is coming in an upcoming update for our Office 365 customers shortly.”

For now, you only have an option to save all attachments at once, but if you want to save a couple of specific attachments, you’ll have to wait for the update. Things are similar with deleting the attachments, as you’re able to delete a single attachment only. So for example, if you want to delete 8 attachments, out if 10, you’ll have to press “Delete attachment” button eight times, deleting attachment by attachment.

Apparently, this is a pretty big issue for some users, as they very unsatisfied on Microsoft forums. Maybe all this negative feedback will force Microsoft to bring the fixing update as soon as possible. Of course, you can use browser version of Outlook if this bug is so annoying to you, but that’s not a point, if you already bought Office 2016 and you want to use every part of it.
