  1. Dark Mode

    I love me some dark/brown mode in iOS apps and Window phone mobile is a lot easier on the eyes at night. Please adding this feature on Outlook. Dear developers, Please considering it....

      • Requesting Outlook for Mac have an image attachment file resize utility. To both resize the image(s) and show the outgoing email size.

        We have an office of over 100 employees often sending images between design teams. Our previous email client application had the ability to resize images to lower resolution at the time of sending an email. Without this feature in Outlook we have found more difficulty in our workflow.

          • Colours for Mac OS Mojave

            Since upgrading to Mac OS Mojave, the colour of selected tab headings has changed to a "lime green" that is VERY difficult to read against the white background. Can you please address and also install a dark mode option as this is much easier on the eyes.

                  • I need to have my Google Calendar in my Outlook 2016 calendar LIKE IT WAS in the 2011 version. Why we moving backwards? just need iCal

                    I need to have my Google Calendar in my Outlook 2016 calendar LIKE IT WAS in the 2011 version. Why we moving backwards? just need iCal support. Is that too hard? Can't we look at the code written for 2011 version of Outlook and update it for 2016?

                    • Sign Druide Antidote connector for Outlook for Mac

                      We use a 3rd party spelling checker supplied by Druide Informatique with Outlook for Mac called Antidote. Since we moved to macOS 10.14 Mojave, this spelling checker does not work with Outlook. It does work however for Word among other Microsoft applications. Our understanding is that with Mojave, Apple introduced security features that prevent communication between Outlook and Antidote. We see two options: (1) Microsoft “signs” the Antidote connector for Outlook, or (b) Microsoft publishes a new API to be consumed by third parties such as Druide. Would Microsoft consider these options?

                          • HTML Support for Google Calendar

                            I was told by support that Google Calendar integration doesn't support HTML in the meeting body.

                            I'm requesting support for it.

                            • When we contact support via Outlook, we should receive a transcript of the entire conversation via email.

                              You store these tickets, and you can access them, but we cannot. That's unacceptable.

                              Send us the transcript, with links, and the entire conversation, so we have a record of what we're told and evidence of the level of service we receive.

                              • Add / Display 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.

                                • Pause Series Button

                                  A "Pause series" feature for meetings when you don't want to cancel, but need to stop the meeting for a period of time.

                                  When a recurring meeting needs to be paused for any reason. This feature would change participants status to "free" clearing up the calendar for other meetings. it would remain on participants' calendars (incognito) until the meeting is un-paused switching the status back to original setting (tentative or busy). Could even give a date or date range for the pause

                                      Enable auto archive and Manual archive based on user settings option in Outlook for Mac like we have in windows. In windows user can either setup auto archive features in outlook for specific time period or user runs auto archive by just selecting outlook Folder and date under archive tab

                                      • allow allocation of tasks in outlook for Mac

                                        Guys, get your act together - it is July 2018 and on my Outlook 365 subscription I can't assign a task! this is not a nice to have - it is basic to the way we manage our work

                                        • 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!
