  1. Set Reading Pane to light/dark mode as default when Switch Background is used

    When switching emails/views in Outlook, light mode set as background doesn't stay as a default option and reverts back to dark mode.

  2. Please bring back the categories feature in Outlook for Mac.

    It difficult to filter out the information while on the Calendar, Notes, Task or Contacts.

    At least give the option to filter by Category on list view and collapse group like in Windows Outlook.

  3. Office 365 For Mac should have the same features available for the PC.

    Office 365 For Mac should have the same features available that PC users get. You are paying for a half built product and this simply isn't good enough. I would like to be able to swap over from Google Docs but I am seriously looking at cancelling my office 365 subscription and going back to using Gmail / Calendar and Google Docs directly as there really isn't any point me using office 365 for Mac. It is as though Microsoft purposely want to focus on a product for their PC customers. If you made the product equal to that available…

  4. Support Dark Mode in Reading Pane

    Please make the preview pane appear dark in dark mode. The current implementation hurts the eyes and is woefully inconsistent with the rest of the application appearance.

  5. Customize ribbon

    Provide an ability to customize the ribbon, like moving features around. I wanted to move the SEND button farther to the right but can't.

  7. Please add "Recall this message" function for mac!

    Please add "Recall this message" function for mac!Every time when I would like to recall an email on my macbook, I need to open the Parallels Deask for windows and then open the outlook for windows to recall the email. It is so annoying. More importantly, in "recalling" situation, time is of the essence. In this sense, after I accomplish the two steps aforementioned, the reciever has already opened the mail and I would fail in the recall unfortunately.

  10. I suggest you add Archive feature in Mac version exactly as in Windows version.

    Archive feature in Windows cleanly allows storage of mail offline in a *.pst file. Archive functionality is missing in Mac Version. I carry 53 GB of mail with huge syncing and spinning issues.

  11. Allow us to Customize the RIBBON and Quick Access Toolbar

    Reorganize your ribbon so that functions are grouped together, OR better yet, allow users to customize their ribbons and quick access toolbars for their own needs as users on a Windows platform can!

  18. Keep last email (email thread)

    sometimes we have a lot of emails as conversational emails (forward/reply) I wish if we have a way "keep the last email" -FOR REFERENCE instead of deleting each email in email thread manually.

  19. Allow me to set a meeting subject specific to my calendar

    When I receive a meeting invite, the meeting originator does not always choose a subject that is easy to understand at a quick glance. I'd like to be able to set a meeting subject that only affects my view of the meeting. For example, a co-worker may invite me to a meeting with the subject "Call"; I'd like to change that on my calendar to be "Call with John regarding user interface error" and that change is only represented on my calendar (it doesn't affect my co-worker's invitation). Any updates that my co-worker sends to the meeting should keep the…
