  1. email calender reminder

    recently switched from gmail, which as a calender reminder option, allowed for the sending of an email message to myself instead of just the pop-up reminder. this email reminder feature was very useful, especially when on the road using multiple devices. can this be done in outlook or with an add-on?

  2. ca

    Make the Outlook calendar viewable on the computer desktop without opening Outlook. Choose daily, weekly or monthly views and scroll through the calendar to desired day. Allow for editing of daily events and tasks. Add a feature which includes an added notes pop up on a calendar day if more info is needed. The calendar can be viewed at full size or resized to a preferred size or hidden/revealed by a simple key command. Opacity of calendar can be adjusted and choices to highlight the day of event or other aspects of the calendar are available. Include a side bar…

  4. Let me enter time easier

    Let me enter time easier than 1999. :)
    I am in new meeting window. I enter the hour but then I have to enter tab to be able to enter minutes. Why do I have to enter the tab key. Why not let me enter the time free form? Same for dates.

  6. that the ability to select multiple attachments

    The PC version has this, please offer capacity to select multiple files, events, meetings in Mac version Outlook by offering option to:
    Select Multiple Nonadjacent Files with Command+Click
    Select Adjacent Files with Shift+ Click,

     One of the only programs to not offer this on a Mac.  This is a critical feature present in PC version but sorely missing in MAC. Thanks

  7. How about a working sharing permissions with Office 365?

    Calendar sharing never seems to honor the permissions set via outlook or work properly. I am forced to go into Office 365 portal to fix. Very, very confusing.

    When trying to print a calendar or a subscribed public folder calendar the text in the print out is huge and not the same size as what is shown on the screen. Please fix this issue.

  12. Saving Historical Calendar, Outlook 2016 for Mac

    Outlook for Mac 2016 -- saving calendar history. Please again allow us to save specified date ranges as a separate calendar. That makes it possible to keep historical data without making current calendar file size too large.

  13. Restrict or manage warnings

    By default, when you join a network that has a limited access to your mail server (e.g. Guest WLAN), you get a prompt for each account or shared calendar asking you if you accept to get redirected. So if you have 100 colleagues, you get 100 warnings / popups. The option to remember our choice never worked even since Entourage, and the only option to get rid of this windows is to click 100 times on OK or Cancel. It would be great to have one single notification in such cases.
    You get crazy when such things happen because of…

  14. Keep calendar attachments visible in the calendar entry (they disappear shortly after opening).

    Once an invitation has been acepted, any attachments in the calendar entry are only visible until Outlook has determined that the invitation was accepted. It looks like this is a bug where the acceptance date/time message is blocking out the attachment line.

    About the reminders that appear: while using a Macbook it would be much more usable if the snooze button responded to the touch, rather than requiring a click, hold and drag to select the delay. When you start to scroll to the desired 'Until x' option you often select the wrong thing because you let up on the trackpad and it chooses it for you.

  18. Ability to change date format in the list view when viewing the calendar in list view

    The list view in outlook is very handy for a clean look. The problem is at a quick glance since it is in the Month-day-time format unless you know what the day is off the top of your head it gets really hard to make sense of it quickly. What I recommend is having an option to view it by day of the week (i.e. monday, tuesday, etc) when looking at it from the "work week" view. I think it would make it easier when looking at the week as a whole.

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
