  1. Shade current day in the calendar view for clarity

    The week at a glance view in the Calendar only indicates the current day in the top (where the day and date is highlighted in blue). It would be a lot faster to view/grasp if "today" (the current day) was shaded a different color than the other days.

  3. Drag email to calendar

    I tried to drag an email to calendar to set up an event and it didn't work, for either Outlook 15.40, or for Office 365 in Firefox.

    I just downloaded Office 15.40 for Macs, and it installed and ran. I really like the feature of dragging an email to the calendar to set up an event--is it browswer specific?

  4. calendar reminders off screen

    When you resize a screen (or remove an external display) - the calendar reminder pop-up window appears with only the left 5% visible in the lower-right corner of the screen. The entire reminder window should be positioned ON-SCREEN instead.

  5. Offer suggested times or "auto-pick" when scheduling meetings

    Offer suggested times or "auto-pick" when scheduling meetings.
    This is available in the PC version but not Mac. It is a fundamental calendaring software function and it is missing.

  6. Add room capacity field to room finder

    The room finder option was introduced in version 15.18 but our users depend on quickly finding what the room capacities of what our meeting rooms are.

    The current workaround is to either add the capacity into the room notes or renaming the room such as <Location>-<Roomname>-<Capacity>.

    Adding notes would work but it would be very time consuming to add and for our users to go through each room.
    Renaming the room makes our display names a bit messier looking.

  7. Change the highlight color for the current day

    Problem: On the calendar when I am viewing/editing content on a day other than today that day is highlighted on the 30 day calendar on the left side of the window. On my Mac that highlight is so faint it blends in to the white background. Today's date is clearly highlighted as a dark blue circle. But the day I'm currently viewing is a very faint grey that I can barely see.

    For example: If today is the 16th, that day on the calendar is highlighted in dark blue. And if I am adding an appointment to the 18th, that…

  12. Support for adding calendars (not shared calendars) like windows version

    Support for adding calendars (not shared calendars) like windows version.
    In Windows I can add calendars of my colleagues (I only see free/blocke) via right-click on "my calendars". Not possible on Mac

  13. support "smart meetings" (end 5/10 mins early)

    In GApps there is a setting to automatically end short (30 min) meetings 5 mins early, or longer (hour or more) 10 mins before the end of a full hour (allows for bio-breaks, etc) ... would love to see similar capability in Outlook (especially as I work in a GApp environment and not defaulting to 25 min meetings singles me out!)

    Make it possible to pop-out Calendar and Tasks, etc., in separate windows, the same way you can with the Windows version. Right-click the "Calendar" button at the bottom and get the option to view in separate window...

  17. ISO 8601 standard week number option

    Based on the ISO week number standard (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISOweekdate), the ISO 8601 definition for week 01 is the week with the first Thursday of the Gregorian year (i.e. of January) in it. So I would expect 2021 week 1 to start on January 4, 2021. Instead it shows that 2021 week 1 starts on Dec 28, 2020.

    I believe the Mac version of Outlook needs the option (First week of year: "First 4-day week") that is present in the Windows version, so that we can set it to conform to the ISO definition. https://superuser.com/questions/1246132/wrong-week-number-in-outlook

  19. Make it so you can change the default for event durations.

    When I schedule events, the default duration seems to be set at 30 minutes. Most of the time they are for 1 hour, so I would like to change the default, but from what I can find, this is not possible.

  20. Add personal notes to calendar appointments

    Give the ability to add personal notes to calendar events. For example, if I am attending a meeting and want to remember to bring up a certain point, I should then be able to just type in a note to talk about the item.

    A reminder could also be added.

    This can currently be done within an invite but any updates to the invite will wipe any changes made to an event.
