  2. Calendar as a side bar similar to Windows version of Outlook

    Windows based Outlook shows the calendar and meeting invites as a side bar/frame. Outlook on MAC is missing this.

  3. Support for Google Calendar sync only without email.

    Support for Google Calendar only. Downloading gmail emails is too large for most hard drives. I should be able to sync Google and outlook calendars without having to download my entire gmail emails.

    The whole reason I use gmail is so I don't have to store my emails on my laptop.

  7. Calendar Online Archive

    Calendar Online Archive to have parity with what is available to Outlook 2013 for PC clients. We have a 150 day retention policy in place, most of our C-Class Executives, President's, and VP's or on Mac's and are desperately asking for Calendar Archive for planning purposes.

  9. Better disk space utilization

    Outlook for Mac 2016 has these problems currently:


    1. There is no way for me to specify where to store my mails

    I should have the option of storing the mails in another partition or even an external drive as well. Currently all my IMAP downloaded mails are being stored in home folder which is eating away space for other apps. Outlook for windows has this option.


    1. Better disk cleanup

    After i unlink and remove an IMAP account, Outlook does not seem to free up the space. I believe Outlook windows has this option of cleaning up disk space.

  10. Add back the ability to Send Update to only added/changed invitees to a meeting in Outlook for Mac

    I am no longer able to just send an Update to only the added/changed invitees for an appointment in the Outlook for Mac client. I have meetings that I manage with 50+ invitees, but when I add someone to the invite it sends an update to everyone instead of just the new addition.

  11. Automatic timezone update

    Automaticall update my timezone if Im on business trip and dont ask me.
    To avoid issues I should have an option for default time zone.
    So, when Im on trip my existing meetings are updated to new local time and if I create new meeting - its created in my default time zone, but shows time local to current zone in case if i would be still on trip

  12. Calendar view does not have a scroll bar for all day events list. Maximum viewed is 15.

    Outlook 2016 for Mac does not have a scroll option for items greater than 15. This is listed above the Calendar for an given day when in Calendar view. To test this create 20 all day events for the same day. Go to calendar, choose 'Day' and count the amount of All day events in the top of the window. It will not exceed 15.

    The option to scroll through these items is available on the PC version of Outlook 2016.

    This is a bug in my opinion, not a feature request.

  13. 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.

  14. drag calendar entries to other days

    on Outlook for PC (I've used versions 2000-2016) they all supported dragging calendar entries to another day in the week view and onto any day shown in the month preview on the side. This was a great feature that I used everyday. PC Outlook also let you select multiple days in the side calendar and then they would appear in day view. You were not restricted to the day/week/month options. Please incorporate these features into Mac version.

  16. Enable Attachments to Appointments

    Enable Outlook for Mac to simply drag and drop or copy & paste any kind of file into an appointment.
    The current workaround to go online via Office 365 is simply annoying and absolutely not user friendly.

  18. Dim past days and events in outlook

    at the moment, all days and events look exactly the same, regardless if that day/even has passed. By dimming any past days and events, the most relevant and pressing events will be highlighted and easy to recognize.

  19. Allow delegates to create Online Meetings on behalf of

    Currently delegates cannot create a Lync (or Skype for Business) Online Meeting on behalf of their manager/principal/delegator. They can create a meeting on behalf of, just not an online meeting on behalf of (see link below).

    https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Schedule-an-online-meeting-9ad8b538-807a-4189-aaae-e6b03990e0b4

    Please add that function as many of our admins are left out in the cold!!!

  20. Canceled meetings are not removed

    I've noticed that when someone cancels a meeting, the calendar shows canceled but it stays on. I have to manually go and delete it. When meeting is canceled, need it to be removed from the calendar.
