    • I suggest you add CalDav support to Outlook for Mac.

      Corporate mail server is CalDave - whether we like it or not. Want to integrate in Outlook rather than using iCal!

      • Add delay or schedule sending emails feature to all Outlook accounts.

        Right now, this feature is only available to those with Office 365 Business Premium or Enterprise subscription for Mac.

          • Holidays

            Really, you don't have holidays yet? Every calendar I use has the option to display holidays. Outlook for Mac is the only one that doesn't have this and this is what I use for business. Microsoft really confounds me and many other business people I know. You don't add some obvious features people use and can't be that hard to add.

              • open msg files in outlook

                We store .msg files in SharePoint document libraries and OneDrive, and to my surprise they would not open in Outlook 2016 for Mac.

                If there is not a trick to make this work, it should definately be a feature!

                    • Allow customizable badge notification per-inbox

                      After the latest "fast ring" update to Outlook, the badge count/notification of unread emails shows the unread emails in ALL accounts. Prior to this update, the badge would only show the unread count of my primary inbox. After the update, it also shows the unread count in my department's shared inbox. It would be nice to choose which of these behaviors is preferable, as I bet some people may like this change and others (like myself) absolutely hate it.

                      • Allow subscribing to published iCal calendars and vice versa

                        I suggest that you add functionality to both Outlook for Mac and Outlook for Windows to enable subscribing to published iCal calendars (or Mac Calendar.app), and to enable publishing of Outlook calendars in a form that can be subscribed to from iCal. This should, of course, sync changes in both directions.

                          • Support RSS feeds in Outlook for Mac.

                            You really should enable RSS feeds. I'm not sure, but mine seem to work, but recently stopped until I had a PC running update email, then they fed back to my Mac running outlook. A major feature like RSS support should be mirrrored in Mac Outlook. I hardly use PC outlook any more, but if I dont' have RSS feeds, I may have to stop using Mac Outlook and put a VM PC on my Mac just to run Outlook PC. I'm sure that I'm not the only one, as I saw almost a thousand votes for this on another…

                                  • Drag email to calendar

                                    I tried to drag an email to calendar to set up an event and it didn't work, for either Outlook 15.40, or for Office 365 in Firefox.

                                    I just downloaded Office 15.40 for Macs, and it installed and ran. I really like the feature of dragging an email to the calendar to set up an event--is it browswer specific?

                                      • Might i suggest you get your sh*t together and put back the features you keep taking away. At this point i'm SOOOOO F'ing fed up with MS OFF

                                        Your product officially sucks! I've toted MS office for decades.....i'm officially DONE!
                                        The fact you strip out some of the most essential features is sh!t.

                                        I'd recommend close down the software for good. You might as well rename yourself to Blackberry Office or BB 365.

                                        Good luck!

                                        • Add "move to" support to swipe gestures

                                          Please add the ability to use the "move to" action in swipe gestures. This will allow users to use a swipe gesture to move a message to a specific folder (allow searching for the folder just like in the normal "move to" action.
