          • Integrate Outlook with Onenote

            Windows versions of OneNote and Outlook have integrated to allow you to bring in meeting information into OneNote as well as assign tasks that appear in Outlook. Bring that integration to the Mac.

              • Ability to import and export contacts

                Please add the ability to import and export contacts 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.

                      Have Outlook 2016 added to the Share Menu (under Extensions) in System Preferences. It's easier to have applications share anything to Microsoft Outlook. Example the Photos app.

                      • Add "Recall this message" function and support message recalls from Windows clients

                        Add "Recall this message" function so that you can recall messages sent in error. Also support message recalls that are sent from Outlook for Windows users - at the moment message recalls just come through as an email but don't automatically remove unread emails like Outlook for Windows does.

                        • Make search look and work like it does for Windows

                          The search function for the Windows version of Outlook is fast, easy to use, and in a convienient location. The version for Mac is in the upper right corner, not easy to quickly select search options, and overall is not as easy to use.

                          Move the search box to the same location on the Mac client and allow for quick drop downs on what to search for. Overall make search on the Mac just as fast and easy to use as the Windows version

                            • Add back the option of coloring column view text by Category

                              The old Outlook 2011 Categories would change the color of the text in the column view of a message or note, meaning that colors of an important category of email/note/task could stand out to the eye quickly. Now for messages, there is only a small bar or dot, and you can't even tell a note or task is categorized without selecting that note, or unchecking other categories in the sidebar. It would be very nice to see the category breakdown of a list of things at a glance, like I used to be able to.
                              Please add back an option…

                                  • Honor default apps defined by user. Ex, clicking chat on a user contact launches skype rather than default IM app. Would match Windows Offi

                                    This applies across all of the Office apps, not just Outlook. Integration should leverage the default Mac applications for various click to X capabilities, not hard coded preferences in the application.

                                    • Enable Outlook to attach files from Sharepoint Online and OneDrive.

                                      The 2016 versions of Word/Excel/PowerPoint natively allow you to save files directly to Sharepoint Online and OneDrive, yet Outlook offers no option to attach one of those files into an outgoing email. If Microsoft truly believes in "cloud-first" one would think they'd integrate Outlook with their own cloud services.

                                        Add support for display of two timezones as per PC version (that is, show, for example, EST and GMT alongside the day view in calendar). This makes collaboration and scheduling so much easier
