  1. 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. End meetings early for Outlook for Mac

    As described on this page, please add the ability to end meetings early for parity on the Windows version of Office 365 the way it's described below.

    Especially during these times of this pandemic, having a built in mechanism to allow for time after meetings to check on family and prepare for next tasks.

    End meetings early

    If you're using Outlook for Microsoft 365, you can now have Outlook end your meetings a few minutes early. This can help you build in travel time between meetings. You can choose a different duration for meetings under one hour and meetings…

  6. focus time

    When scheduling "focus time" in calendar, Cortana should allow me to schedule this time in a different color, so it is easy for me to see where I have "mental breaks" in the day or when I will be able to do my follow-up tasks from my meetings in the day.

  10. Add agenda items to individual meetings in a series

    Attendees and organizers who have a series of meetings should be able to add agenda items to a specific instance of the meeting. Currently, I have a series of 1:1s (some of which I organized and some of which I'm an attendee). Most people in our company track the agenda items for those meetings in Google docs because there's not easy way to add agenda items to a meeting without resending the entire invitation. Many meetings scheduled in a series don't have a fixed agenda for each meeting; rather, each meeting needs its own, flexible agenda. Ideally, this agenda would…

  12. Add Working from Home to the "Free, Tentative, Busy, Out of Office" list.

    In the world of Covid-19 almost all of our employees are working from home. We we do get back to the office it will not be in full-force even post-covid. Would it be possible to add a Working from Home or Working Remotely option to the drop-down menu for status?

  14. android update time of alerts

    When an outlook alert first appears on android it says "14 minutes until meeting starts"
    However, if I look at my phone an hour later, it still says "14 minutes until
    meeting starts" which can be quite confusing, since it's no longer accurate.

    Suggestion/feature request: update the alert time as a meeting approaches so that if you see your phone "after an alert" it will be accurate as to how much time is remaining.

  17. Have a setting in Preferences to have the "Microsoft Teams" button enabled by default in new Outlook calendar invitations.

    Now that our meetings are nearly 100% done through Teams (as opposed to meeting in a meeting room in the office), it would be so nice to have the option to set the "Microsoft Teams" button to be automatically turned on, by default. That way we don't have to remember to turn Teams on and keeps us from mistakenly sending out Calendar invites without having Teams enabled.

  18. Please make it possible to hide the blue "current time bar" from the Outlook calendar, or just make the line go away entirely!

    Please make it possible to hide the blue "current time bar" from the Outlook calendar, or just make it go away entirely! It is driving me nuts, and I just spent 30 min googling trying to find a way to hide it, but it seems there isn't one. Thank you for considering!

  19. Calendar selection for new appointments

    It would be great if there was the ability to select which calendar a new appointment is for from the appointment creation window, similar to creating new emails.
