  1. Change Calendar Font Style and Size

    Allow for the user to be able to change the font type and size for all styles in calendar and for those changes to print as well. The Mac version of the Outlook calendar should have the same customizable features as the Windows version.

  2. week

    Make week numbers visible in the "day picker" in the top left corner of the calendar window (not only in the heading of the large calendar view. Just as in the Windows version of Outlook 2013.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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!

  9. Create Calendar Appointments from a Time or Date in an Email

    When reading an email, if there is a time or date in the email, allow me to click on that time/data and create a calendar appointment for that date/time right there. This feature is enabled in OS X Mail and iOS Mail. It would be great to have it in Outlook too.

  12. 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.

  15. 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…

  16. 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.

  17. 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…

  18. Private appointments should be visible (but not readable) when sharing a calendar.

    Private appointments are not displayed at all in shared calendars and displayed as free. On Outlook for Windows, the details of the private appointment are hidden for all but the owner.
    This is unwanted behaviour.

  20. Outlook acceptance and declined count

    Add a function in outlook that will allow me to see how many people have accepted my meeting invitation instead of having to count them manually, or at least allow me to copy them and paste them into excel for my count.
