  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.

    • 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....

      • 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.

          • 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 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.

                                  • Checkbox version 16.20 for Mac

                                    With the new checkboxes in calendar, I can't see at a glance whose calendar I'm viewing (i.e. which checkboxes are checked).
                                    Also, you can expand everybody's calendar, but that's just distracting if people have only one calendar and adds to the problem of not being able to see which checkbox is checked.

                                    I'm generally very disappointed with the new design. I think it's both ugly and not user friendly.

                                    • Make current day more visible/highlighted in Calendar Week View

                                      We use the Week View in the Calendar primarily, as I'm sure most others do. It'd be nice to have a visual indicator to immediately see where we are currently and what the next meeting is.

                                      Example Screenshot of Proposal here: https://imgur.com/a/OgQeEXo

                                      There is currently a red line that spans across the entire calendar to indicate current time, but for some reason is spans across the entire week instead of just today, so it's not a good immediate identifier, though it helps.

                                      There's a blue dot over the Date Number at the top of the column, but that's also not…

                                      • 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?
