    Allow fluid scrolling by the selected view, via mouse scroll or Magic Mouse gesture of calendar screens (similar to Calendar on Mac OS).

  4. Use the macOS notification system for calendar notifications

    Currently, calendar notifications pop up in their own window in the lower-right corner of the screen, which is inconsistent with the rest of macOS and Outlook for Mac. It would be cleaner and more streamlined to use the built-in notification system.

  5. Open more than three calendars in Outlook

    More and more users are finding the need to open more than three calendars at the same time. This is available to any other versions of Outlook except the mac side. Please add this!

  6. Delete a meeting in calendar without sending a cancellation message to all participants

    Whenever I delete a meeting from the calendar (in Outlook 2016 for Mac), even if that meeting is in the past, it sends a message to all participants as if the meeting was cancelled. Sometimes I just want to remove past items from the calendar, so it won’t clutter my calendar viewing, but I don’t want that cancellation message sent to the participants, it might even be confusing for them to receive a cancellation for a meeting that has already happened. I suggest to add a configuration in Outlook for Mac that allow us to delete items from the calendar…

  7. 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.

  9. Provide a lunar calendar so we can keep track of Chinese birthdays.

    It is really difficult to keep track of the birthdays of Chinese friends and business associates (and very important!). Please enable recurring birthday reminders to be set according to the Chinese lunar calendar.

  12. Allow me to set a meeting subject specific to my calendar

    When I receive a meeting invite, the meeting originator does not always choose a subject that is easy to understand at a quick glance. I'd like to be able to set a meeting subject that only affects my view of the meeting. For example, a co-worker may invite me to a meeting with the subject "Call"; I'd like to change that on my calendar to be "Call with John regarding user interface error" and that change is only represented on my calendar (it doesn't affect my co-worker's invitation). Any updates that my co-worker sends to the meeting should keep the…

  13. Add swiping abilities to the calendar views

    There are now swiping options for emails including deleting and flagging messages. However there are not any swiping options for navigating around the calendar.

    When you are in the day, week, or month view it would be very helpful to be able to swipe left or right to go forward or backwards. For example if you are in the week view if you swipe to the left it would move to the next week. Swiping to the right would go to the previous week. This would work the same for day or month views.

    The current process of clicking on…

  14. exchange shared calendar on other exchange accounts' mobile devices

    Sharing calendars between exchange accounts is great. One calendar, multiple users, instantly synced to all whom access. No mess, no fuss. Thank you!

    However, If I create, then share an exchange calendar- others can access this only on their outlook or 365 webmail. Please reach an agreement with apple to allow others with exchange accounts on ios devices to access exchange shared calendars

  15. Provide default option to turn off meeting response request

    Please provide a default option to turn off meeting response requests. I often forget to turn it off and don't like being inundated with meeting acceptances.

  16. Add "Send Updates to New Participants Only" functionality to meeting invites

    Give the "Send Update to New Participants Only" option on Outlook for Mac. Currently, updates on meeting invites are sent to all participants which is fine, unless you add a single person to the invite and don't want to spam the rest of the meeting participants.

  19. Attachments

    I wish there was a way to search through meetings for everything with an attachment of a certain size. My IT dept puts mailbox limits and having 4 years of attachments sitting in calendar meetings is killing me.

  20. Option to print Weekly Agenda Style

    In the Windows version of Outlook you can select a setting when printing out a work week to, Weekly Agenda Style. It prints out boxes for the days not columns with times. My boss really does not like the columns with times and prefers the boxes. How do we get the Agenda style on Outlook for Mac?
