  1. template appointment

    Please make available the option to save a calendar appointment as template.

    Under Windows I used the "save as" > template for appointments often. Unfortunately the "save as" is disabled in appointments, while it is available in e-mails (which I use even more often, too).

  2. 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.

  4. 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.

  7. 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!!!

  8. FIX: 2020 Outlook for Mac UI doesn't show coworker's calendars

    I tried the new 2020 Outlook for Mac UI... it looked much better but when I tried to view coworkers calendars I could not see any other contact in my organization. When I set up a meeting, I couldn't even use scheduling assistant to see the invitees time conflicts for that meeting. I had to revert back to the older version because this is showstopper missing functionality.

  9. organizer

    Change the owner of a meeting or meeting series

    I’ve had a number of situations recently where I’ve handed over responsibility for a thing (event, launch, campaign, whatever) to someone else and wanted to have them take ownership of all the artefacts around that thing. Or even have a co-host (for example someone is taking care of the location and needs to update that or the call-in information

    In particular, it’s a pain to hand over recurring (or even non-recurring) meetings.

    I’d really like the ability to “transfer ownership” in a meeting to someone else – probably via an offer…

  10. Ability to set default meeting duration to either 25 or 55 minutes

    It is impossible to change conference rooms in time when meetings are back to back. It would be helpful to allow setting the default time to either 25 or 55 minutes.

  16. Turn off alerts for specific accounts

    I like being able to see my Google events integrated with my work ones in Outlook, but I don't need to see alerts for it in Outlook! I refuse to give up my existing calendar program (Fantastical), so now I get duplicate notifications from both apps.

    Please give us the ability to turn off calendar event notifications only for specific accounts, so that I can keep notifications for work events, but turn off personal ones.

  17. Use the same category colors and calendar design like on PC

    Please use the same category colors and calendar design (mainly the month view) as it exists on Outlook for PC. The monthly calendar view on the PC looks so much more professional (whats the point of these ugly black borders around calendar events?)

    I don't see any reason why category colors are slightly different on the Mac compared to the PC version of Outlook. Especially the faint category colors when using multiple calendars are absolutely terrible (eg. white text on light grey background)

    If've posted an example here:

  18. Auto-Dismiss Overdue Reminders

    Add a feature to allow auto-dismissal of Overdue Reminders. It would also be nice to have the ability to specify how long after the event has ended until the reminder is auto-dismissed.

  19. open reminders

    Bring back the ability to allow Outlook reminders to pop up even when Outlook is closed. I shouldn't have to keep my email client open just to receive meeting and other reminders.

  20. Add Rich Text Formatting to Calendar Invites

    One of the features that I miss from the days I was able to use Outlook on Windows is the ability to format the text of Calendar invites, whether appointments or meetings.

    It would be great to have the same ability to control the font, font size, bold, italic, underline, colors, bulleting, numbering, etc., through a toolbar that you do when creating new e-mail messages.
