  1. Send calendar availability

    Like in Outlook for iOS, it would be great to have the ability to have a button in the email compose window that allows me to send availability. From a UI perspective it could operate just like the iOS version...click the "send availability" button, see a calendar, click the time ranges you are available, it drops it nicely formatted into your email.

  2. Allow subscribing to published iCal calendars and vice versa

    I suggest that you add functionality to both Outlook for Mac and Outlook for Windows to enable subscribing to published iCal calendars (or Mac Calendar.app), and to enable publishing of Outlook calendars in a form that can be subscribed to from iCal. This should, of course, sync changes in both directions.

  3. Integrate Google Hangouts into the calendar

    Integrate Google Hangouts into the calendar - I'm an Office Insider (Fast) member so Google contacts & calendar are included, which is great, but the option of adding/integrating Hangouts to the calendar would be tremendous.

  4. Add Outlook calendar entries to OS X's "Today" notification panel

    I use the Mac OS X notification and Today panels quite a bit -- they're just a keyboard shortcut away. In the Today panel is support for the Mac OS Calendar, but nothing for Outlook. I would appreciate the ability to add Outlook, so I can see everything in one place.

  5. Add the ability to save event changes and control sent updates for Calendar invites

    PLEASE give us the ability to add new attendees to existing meetings, edit the meeting message, or change event details without sending updates to all attendees. Need to be able to make changes, add new people, etc. and have a choice to send updates or simply save without sending updates. Currently only way to edit events on Outlook for Mac requires hitting "send update" and ALL attendees get invite update... leads to a lot of confusion for clients.

  6. Allow users of Office 2011/2016 in Mac to set customer reminders for calendar

    I am a user of Outlook on Windows for 15 years and on MacOS for 5 years. There is a feature for calendar reminders on Windows which is not available on Mac version and I would like to request it be introduced in a future upgrade (sooner the better)

    I have tested this functionality and confirmed it is available on Windows Outlook 2007-2010-2013-2016 but it is not available on Office for Mac either 2011 or 2016.

    When I create a new calendar entry and go to set a reminder, I get the same arbitrary list of reminder times on both…

  8. 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.

    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…

  9. Calendar Meetings: copy and better follow up on attendees

    Calendar Meetings: copy and better follow up on attendees
    Specifically one thing is missing in Outlook for Mac that I would like to see on the mac: The ability to copy the attendee list incl attending status (attending/declined/tentative/no response) to the clipboard.
    In Outlook for Windows you can use the Tracking icon to do this.

    In general follow up on meeting attendees in Outlook Mac works very poorly. In addition to the above it would also be nice to have some overview info on a meeting like "5 attending, 12 tentative, 3 declined"

  10. Mark calendar invites as read after accepted

    When calendar invites are accepted, they revert to unread when going into trash. Mark invites as read if they are acted upon. This has been a problem since 2012 or earlier. now outlook for mac 2016

  11. Sharing Secondary Calendars

    Please allow Shared Secondary Calendars to show up on Calendar. Both OWA and Outlook for Windows 2016 both show Secondary Calendars which have been shared. Just not Outlook for Mac 2016.

  14. Make the Mac version of Outlook 2016 calendar fully functional

    Office 2016 Outlook for Mac is not fully functional (a big disappointment). I cannot see the calendars of fellow employees on our Exchange network (18,000 employees) as I can with the Windows version and this makes trying to schedule meetings with multiple people a nightmare. Is there an upgrade that will add this function soon? Makes Outlook useless unless using a Windows PC (which does not work with most programs we use). Would be an essential add on feature for Otlook 2016 for Mac.

  16. Add the "go to (date)" feature to the toolbar on Outlook Calendar for Mac-for ease of scheduling future events

    Add the "go to (date)" feature to the toolbar on Outlook Calendar for Mac, as it is in Windows-for ease of scheduling future events. Having to arrow forward for months thru the calendar to get to a future date is a waste of time.
