  1. The list of suggested adresses helping to create a meeting

    In Outlook 2011 was very useful feature: it remembered the information you wrote down in adress field while creating meeting in calendar. So that the next time you start typing the symbols you see the list of the adresses you used earlier. In Outlook 2016 I couldn't find how to activate this feature, cause it doesn't work automatically.

  3. Finnish month names still incorrect

    Outlook calendar for Mac shows incorrect month names in Finnish. There's an additional "ta" in the end of every month, e.g. "tammikuutata, helmikuutata" etc.

    It should be 22. helmikuuta, but it is 22. helmikuutata. You got the point, so please FINALLY correct this.

  7. notifications

    I dock and undock often. When I do, I have windows which appear mostly offscreen with just the close, minimize, maximize buttons showing. I'd like to have a keyboard shortcut to easily move the calendar notifications.

  8. Smaller updates

    Smaller updates. Updates are almost 1GB. There has to be a way to makes the downloads smaller. With all the other Office apps this is unbearable. Almost 5 GB to update the whole Office suite.

  10. Sunrise Equivalency

    Since Sunrise is going away please build the same functionality in to Outlook ASAP, including multiple calendars such as Google, quick entry iOS keyboard, etc, etc.

  11. Allow for scheduling to have fuzzy/imprecise times

    Many Calendar reminders do not need to have an exact time, but rather just a time window. Example: I just need to call Mr. Jones next Friday morning; I don't need (necessarily) to call Mr. Jones at a specific time next Friday morning. These fuzzy times could be set in preferences. This would be superior to the current alternatives, which consist of (1) scheduling "Call Mr. Jones" at a specific time ("9am"), or (2) scheduling it for a time range that represents morning ("8am-11am"). Currently, with enough "fuzzy time" appointments, the schedule starts looking as if one has committed to…

  13. Check availability of a single user with multiple calendars

    My user would like to have multiple Calendars in Outlook (Work, Personal, etc...) which would both be visible to other users when others are scheduling meetings and are checking the user's availability. The user is aware of the Category features (within a single calendar) but would like multiple calendars to be visible showing availability.

  14. A great improvement in users value would be to open for Calendar sync to Outlook.com and other online calendars.

  15. Make lines/boxes between days in Month View darker.

    Cannot distinguish between days in Month View because the lines are not dark enough. Very disconcerting and hard to use.

  17. view non-consecutive days side by side

    I would like to be able to view non-consecutive days side by side like i can on the PC. I think the benefits are self explanatory with regards to organizing and moving appointments around.

  18. Better performance for displaying other calendars.

    Better performance for displaying other calendars. The functionality to view in other calendar is available. But Windows does it 10 times faster and the Mac Outlook is partially ceased to operate or individual elements appear after several minutes. (In the worst case scenario you get the appointment then already posted!)

  19. Not display the date of appointments in calendar month view, for it is redundant and prevents the full names of appointments being displayed

    Not display the date of each appointment in the calendar month view, for it is redundant and prevents the full names of appointments being displayed. The date of each appointment is adequately given by its position in the grid on the calendar.

  20. Change Dismiss button to set Reminder to None

    Change the Dismiss button in the Reminders window to actually dismiss the reminder by setting it to None. This would match the behavior of the Windows version of Outlook. The current and past versions for Mac leave the reminder time set so you can be reminded of past appointments you have dismissed erroneously.
