            • 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.

                    • Drag and Drop email to create new item

                      On the Windows based version of Outlook you can drag and drop emails to either the calendar, tasks, or contacts to create new items. The subject of the email becomes the calendar or task subject and the body of the email goes in the notes field.

                      Bring this functionality to the Mac version so that drag and dropping of emails works to other areas of Outlook.

                            • 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…

                                      Quick step is a great feature in Outlook for windows. Why is this feature missing in Outlook for Mac?

                                      • 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.
