  4. Add manager's and assistant's name

    In outlook for windows, this option is possible. On my samsung phone this is also possible. But in Outlook for Mac, you can only add spouse and children.

  5. Possibility of changing the display name of a contact. currently it is saved as they decided, not as saved in my contact list.

    Eg a contact has his display name as Macbook but in my contacts it is John Doe. So in inbox currently it shows as Macbook.

  11. adding contact

    In previous versions I could add a contact from an email to my local address book by selecting the recipient and adding contact. Not sure if I haven't found it yet, but not as intuitive to add the contact local from an email with this version as it has been in previous versions of the client.

  13. doubleclick on a VIP to open new message

    I categorize people in purple category as friends. I can just see them when I click on the list. why not to save a step just double click on the name and it automatically opens up a new email with the person's address already entered in the "to" line.

  17. I suggest you include the possibility to "open a new tab" for contacts (and calendar), as it is already possible in Outlook for Windows.

    I am having a lot of difficulties managing my contacts on Outlook for Mac. The reason the experience is not good for me is because I cannot “open a new tab” and keep the contacts open (something that can be done in Outlook for windows).

    Therefore I have to rely on third party applications, such as Contacts from Mac OS, which does not handle contacts very well

  19. Re: Outlook using WRONG Display Name on outgoing emails.

    Outlook is making the assumption that I want my name attached to all my emails. It's attaching the wrong display name to all my outgoing emails.

    Its showing "John Doe <sales@abccompany.com>".

    But I specifically set it to show "ABC Company <sales@abccompany.com>".

    If I set the Display Name of my email account to ABC Company then all my emails should be from ABC Company. However, Outlook 2016 mac (version 16.10 - 180210) is creating a new "Me" profile in my Contacts and saying all my company emails are from me or John Doe instead. This is very…
