  1. 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.

    Tie deselection of calendars with calendar reminders, when we deselect the calendar the calendar alarms should stop showing (firing).

  6. the red time marker should only show up on today

    the red time marker should only show up on today. It is very confusing to be overlaid on the whole week. I keep thinking I'm late for something / very hard for me to glance at the right day.

  8. Make links in Applications Deep Links to other office Apps

    When creating meeting notes in OneNote from Outlook MAC, the link to “Open in OneNote” launches my web browser to Office365 OneNote web. It would be better if it deep-linked to the new note in the OneNote desktop app.

  9. Canceled dates should remain visible

    I suggest you the function "Cancel date", which should cross out the date in the calendar but keep it visible, until chosen otherwise

  11. Dim past days and events in outlook

    at the moment, all days and events look exactly the same, regardless if that day/even has passed. By dimming any past days and events, the most relevant and pressing events will be highlighted and easy to recognize.

  12. Support handling of custom protocols.

    Support handling of custom protocols:


    1. Treat custom protocol links as hyperlinks: protocol://my-awesome-link (need ability to click and highlight it)

    2. Support open application that is responsible for handling custom protocol links:
      With example above application responsible for protocol:// handling should be opened

  13. Outlook Mac 2019 (volume licensing version) directly open google agenda .ics calendars.

    Currently, having a google agenda in Outlook2019 is not possible without Office 365. My company is not using Office 365 or Sharepoint 2019, therefore I can't open my google web agenda.

  15. allow a calendar entry subject to be edited in the weekly view without opening entry

    What happened to allowing a user to rename a calendar entry inline in the weekly view after dragging the time slot. It used ot let you set the subject in weekly view without having to open the entry AND click in the the subject AND click on save...

  16. "Outlook for Mac does not currently support adding holidays to calendars." ?!?!

    Where could I even begin to intimate how absurd this is. Holidays can not be added to calenders? That is complete madness. It doesn't even make sense, how can you even plan ahead if you dont know when all the holidays are? Why would you limit this tool like that? Total madness.

  18. Sync with corporate Exchange network (like Windows)

    Outlook for Mac is still failry useless for Apple/Mac users until it can fully sync with calendars in an Exchange network. Thank goodness for OWA, which provides full functionality. WHEN will MS make Outlook for Mac OS and iOS the same as it does for Windowsusers?

  20. Transfer ownership of appointment

    It should be possible to transfer the ownership (organizer) of an appointment to another person or at least share ownership for a specific appointment with one or more other persons.
