  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....

    • 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!

                  • 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.

                      • New Rest API and built in iOS Calendar app

                        Just got new calendar API features enabled on my account/outlook from Mac. Every time I “open shared calendar” on my Mac it then adds the calendar to the iOS default calendar app. If I delete it off my phone that then deletes the calendar from the outlook app. Seemingly no way to stop it from happening.

                        If I am a new user and I add 50 peoples calendar to my outlook I am then going to see those on my phone. Eventually that is going to cause storage issues and a host of other unintended consequences on my device. For…

                            • Add Groups Calendars of members as you can in Windows Version of Outlook.

                              Normally when you ad a user to a Group and the user shares the calendar you would get that users calendar automatically if you add the group the user are a member of. So if you already have that group added to your calendar the users calendar would automatically turn up.

                              You can also in the windows version of Outlook add the Groups that the users are member of as a shared callender manually. Then all the members of that group's calendar will turn up.

                              This is not possible in Outlook for mac for some reason.

                              It gives an error…

                                    You should be able to add a calendar widget for MacOS - most calendar apps have this feature (Fantastical2 for instance). This would be extremely helpful in looking at upcoming appointments without having to launch the app.

                                    • Improve Delete Key to be more responsive when it comes to deleting calendar events

                                      Now that you introduced the button to Delete Appointment, when I click on an event and use the Delete key on my Mac, I cannot delete events or occurrences on my Outlook for Mac calendar. Can you please restore this hotkey as it’s more efficient for me.

                                      • Add a save feature for calendar events - without 'sending an update'

                                        Please allow for the ability to edit and save a calendar event after the fact without sending an update. It would be helpful to have a record of the events actual time, but often all parties at the event do not need to be bothered with that 'sent update.' This is helpful in tracking an employees time.

                                        • Enable "Attach File" to a Calendar Invite

                                          Enable "Attach File" to any Calendar Invite. The "Attach File" under the Format Text for Outlook Calendar is greyed out.
