          • 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!

            • 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.

              • 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 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.

                  • 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?

                    • 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!!

                      • 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.

                          • Placing of Sent messages back in the same folder they are sent from.

                            As with the Windows version, why is it not possible to select what you like to do with sent messages?

                            I like to to have a thread for all my messages that were sorted in their respective folders. So, when I send a message that I am e.g. forwarding or replying to, should once sent remain in the same folder.

                            Responses from those sent messages will obviously land back up in the usual Inbox, but that is okay, because the Inbox is necessary to deal with new mails arriving, and should not be filled with e-mails that have been dealt…

                                  • Allow requests for Delivery and Read Receipts to be specified as a preference

                                    The ability to request Delivery and Read Receipts was recently added to Outlook for Mac, but you have to remember to set these options for every message you send as they’re off by default. It would be great if it was possible to set theses defaults in the app preferences (as I believe you can do in the Windows version of Outlook), ideally on an account-by-account basis.

                                        • 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.
