  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.

  7. 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.

  10. attendees

    Make scheduling view available for all meetings and not just when the user is the organiser. New Outlook for Mac doesn't give access to the scheduling view for accepted meetings. It also doesn't allow the complete list of attendees to be seen where there is a large number of them. Scheduling view is useful to see who is attending, and sometimes look for other times that might be suitable when alternative times or follow-up meetings are required.

  11. Make it easier to add someone to a meeting if they DECLINE but change mind

    Have the ability add someone back into a meeting easily if they previously declined by letting me change their status or be able to FORWARD from the view where the meeting is open. There is no FORWARD option when the meeting is open (edit mode). :( It is only visible when I am not in the meeting and right click or highlight and go to the top of the screen.

  13. 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.

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/schedule-a-meeting-with-other-people-5c9877bc-ab91-4a7c-99fb-b0b68d7ea94f

    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…

  14. Change the word "subject" to "objective" when creating a meeting.

    This will force the person creating the meeting to focus on the outcome of the meeting and state it when inviting others to participate.

  16. Unable to open calendar invites files to add meeting

    Unable to open calendar invites files to add meeting sent as attachment. Files opens but you are not able to save this in the calendar. Trying to edit the invite and then send to yourself does not work either. Outlook 16.40

  17. Invitations: Allow user changes to Reminder time and Show as status beyond Organizer updates

    Invitations: Allow user changes to Reminder time to persist beyond Organizer updates to the meeting. If the user prefers a 30 minute reminder, and the Organizer set a five minute reminder, WHO DO YOU THINK YOU'RE SERVING BY DELETING THE USER'S PREFERENCE IF THE ORGANIZER UPDATES THE EVENT? I would argue that you're not serving either.

  18. Can we get a way to highlight the current day in the Work Week, Week, Month & List views?

    If you look at the monthly calendar view - you're already almost there. Portions of the calendar that are in a different month have a grey background.

    Excellent - now extend that idea with an option to put "Today" in a different background colour than the other days in the current Week/Month/List.

    Another idea is to create an option to make days other than "Today" have a different colour background.

    Please do this everywhere you display appointments/meetings other than the "Today" view.

  20. Removing one calendar invite on a series issue

    Wanted to provide a defect. When you are in the outlook calendar view and you have a meeting series, if you right click and try to just ‘remove occurrence’, it deletes the remainder of the series invites. (Mac iOS - version 16.35)
