  1. Customize ribbon

    Provide an ability to customize the ribbon, like moving features around. I wanted to move the SEND button farther to the right but can't.

  2. Allow us to Customize the RIBBON and Quick Access Toolbar

    Reorganize your ribbon so that functions are grouped together, OR better yet, allow users to customize their ribbons and quick access toolbars for their own needs as users on a Windows platform can!

  3. For online live lessons during the pandemic using Teams, please can we have option to see all faces/students' work in a class like with Zoom

    For online live lessons during the pandemic using Teams, please can we have the option to see all faces/students' work in a class like with Zoom. This would bring the online live lessons closer to face-to-face lessons and help with assessment and maintaining class community.

  6. Allow ability to see Calendar (or tasks, etc.) on right sidebar while working in mail

    Allow ability to see Calendar (or tasks, etc.) on right sidebar while working in mail. This was previously very helpful in past Windows versions

  7. Add scripting access groups for AppleScript

    This is needed so sandboxed apps can use script Outlook with AppleScript. According to Apple, it's not a lot of work to implement this:

    > For scriptable app developers, implementing support for access groups is relatively trivial, and requires making minor annotations in their app’s scripting definition (sdef) file. - https://developer.apple.com/library/archive/qa/qa1888/index.html#//appleref/doc/uid/DTS40015156-CH1-SANDBOXINGOSXAPPS__INCLUDINGSCRIPTABLEAPPSANDAPPLESCRIPTAPPS-ABOUTAPPLEEVENTSTEMPORARYEXCEPTION_ENTITLEMENTS

  9. Add to Calendar

    When an incoming email contains a date or time reference in the body or subject, it would be great to click on the date and choose to add the event into the Calendar module. Apple's Mail programme does this adding events into the Calendar App.

  13. macos font

    I work at an organization with G Suite, and I'd like to configure Outlook replies to be "invisible" from Gmail replies.

    For macOS, this means better control over fonts, and control over the custom attribution.

    I set my default reply font to Arial 11, but I am reading messages in Calibre. Also, my attribution text will appear in Calibre when my message above it appears in Arial! I'd like to change the font everywhere ("On [DATE], "[NAME]" [ADDRESS] wrote:")

    I'd also like to change the attribution so I can match Google's default of "On Aug 28, 2020, "... rather than…

  14. New outlook for Mac

    I LOVE the new outlook for Mac format. However, I cannot have multiple mailboxes lined, so had to switch back.

    Please can you enable this functionality so I can use both my frequently used mailbox and calenders in the new format.

    Thanks in advance.

  17. I suggest you allow a narrower width split-screen Outlook windows.

    I keep Outlook running in split-screen mode on macOS. The two windows I have open are mail messages and the calendar. This is on my 13" laptop. I'd like to make the Calendar nice and wide and the mail message fairly narrow, maybe a 1/3 2/3 split. As it is, the mail message window won't allow me to set it very narrow. The best I can get is maybe a 40/60 split.

  18. Saved searches should provide an unread count like Inbox, Sent, etc. folders.

    Saved searches should provide an unread count like Inbox, Sent, etc. folders. This way if you created a special VIP filter, you can tell if you have new unread mail from that person. It could be very useful when you get a ton of e-mail but don't have the time to go through all of them.

  19. Default borders for images in Office programs (PC or MAC version or MS365)

    Many images don't have a border so it is helpful to the viewer to see a border. It is annoying to have add borders manually to each image added. Why not be able to set default borders the same way you can set default lines/borders in Excel?

  20. conversation

    Conversation Archive Across Folders

    The ability to select all items in the conversation across all folders not just view them in. This would create a more efficient use of time for people who have to archive messages. The current workflow is to archive the conversation from the inbox and then do the same in sent items.
