  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.

  3. 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.

  10. 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.

  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.

  13. 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…

  14. 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. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. Add Groups Calendars of members as you can in Windows Version of Outlook.

    Normally when you ad a user to a Group and the user shares the calendar you would get that users calendar automatically if you add the group the user are a member of. So if you already have that group added to your calendar the users calendar would automatically turn up.

    You can also in the windows version of Outlook add the Groups that the users are member of as a shared callender manually. Then all the members of that group's calendar will turn up.

    This is not possible in Outlook for mac for some reason.

    It gives an error…
