      • Allow smart folders in Favorites

        The new Favorites category in the sidebar is nice, but should also allow Smart Folders to be added as Favorites. I want a few of my smart folders at the top of my sidebar. As do others...there are at least two other feature requests on this page asking to allow the Smart Folders section to be re-ordered higher in the sidebar so they are more easily accessible. Consider adding all those votes up to count for this request, because this request can help solve that problem too.

        • Allow users to customise the touch bar

          In spite of a similar looking request being marked completed, Microsoft has still not provided end users the ability to customise the touch bar. This is standard functionality in most modern Mac applications and is useful for many different good reasons, particularly for applications as sophisticated as the Microsoft Office suite - there is a lot of scope for customising to one's own workflow.

          Please!! Let us customise the touch bar!!

          • Ability to import and export calendars

            Please add the ability to import and export calendars in Outlook for Mac. It'd be great if the formats that one could import and export contacts to were the same as the options on Outlook on Windows. This would make it easy to transition back and forth, particularly for folks who are switching platforms for work.

            • Focused Inbox for "All Accounts".

              Hello - in the latest Fast Build (15.33.170315) it has the new "All Accounts" at the top. It would be nice if Focused Inbox worked here as well (similar to Outlook for iOs).

                I love the schedule email functionality on mobile (iOS/Android) and would like to have it on Mac Outlook too. Please can you build that.

                • Allow custom sorting of folders. (rather than strictly alphabetical)

                  I would like to be able to sort the folders in the inbox rather than be bound to alphabetical indexing. In Outlook 2013 this was easily achieved by clicking & dragging folders to the desired location. This was a very valuable time saving feature.

                  • Microsoft case #1384229362 - Allow attachments received with iPhone emails to be forwarded with original email. Currently can't do.

                    This is a suggestion for Office 2016 Outlook for the Mac - currently attachments received with emails from iPhones cannot be forward with the original message. Just finished talking with one of your techs and was informed it was a format issue between the iPhone’s mail program and Outlook for the Mac.
                    Case Number 1384229362

                    It would be nice to get this fixed. As I understand it the functionality is supposed to mimic that of the PC version and this is a feature I use all the time when in that format.

                    • Add copy paste of email and attachments

                      A hugely important and used feature within the MS Outlook workflow is to be able to copy emails by just selecting an email in the main list and doing ctrl+c. then allowing you to paste it as an attachment into emails messages. The only method to do this now is to manually save the email then subsequently attach is, which is very tedious in comparison. The other feature that is related but missing is the ability to copy attachment within email messages with a quick ctrl+c, so you don't have to save them first. PLEASE add these features as it…

                        After closing the search function in the inbox you should be back at the beginning. This is not the case at the moment.

                        • have the ability to disable autocomplete feature for email as it's remembering emails for all emails received even junk mail, don't need it.

                          Have the option to remove auto complete for emails. It's remembering all email addresses of emails received and sent and no need to have junk mail remembered! It's also duplicating email addresses and creating new contact cards even though the contact's email is in their card.

                            • Add the ability to hide outlook groups/ Place groups in a separate tab.

                              Outlook Groups that you are in automatically show up in the Mail Tab, without the ability to disable them. Adding that ability or adding a separate Groups tab would be helpful for those that need to simplify the veiw for email.

                                  • Move events

                                    I would like to be able to move 'event1' from my main calendar to a secondary calendar without having to delete and re-add to the other calendar. I can do this in the drop down menu of my O365 instance and outlook does see the change, I would just like to be able to do it from within outlook.

                                      Save changes to notes automatically. I've noticed I've made changes and when I go to another device, I don't see the changes there and realize all my work is left on the other device and wasn't sync'd to the cloud (until save is made).

                                        • calendar reminders off screen

                                          When you resize a screen (or remove an external display) - the calendar reminder pop-up window appears with only the left 5% visible in the lower-right corner of the screen. The entire reminder window should be positioned ON-SCREEN instead.
