  1. Office 365 For Mac should have the same features available for the PC.

    Office 365 For Mac should have the same features available that PC users get. You are paying for a half built product and this simply isn't good enough. I would like to be able to swap over from Google Docs but I am seriously looking at cancelling my office 365 subscription and going back to using Gmail / Calendar and Google Docs directly as there really isn't any point me using office 365 for Mac. It is as though Microsoft purposely want to focus on a product for their PC customers. If you made the product equal to that available…

  2. 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.

  3. 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!

  4. 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. Dark Mode Option

    I love the idea of the dark mode option, however on most cases I find it hard to read with a dark background due to recent updates. I hopes there's a permanent option to switch to light mode for reading pane, instead of having to push the light switch all the time when scrolling through emails.
    Now I gotta turn off the whole dark mode option for reading and efficiency purposes.

  8. Support more file types in “Insert Link” smart link feature.

    Be able to see and insert file types like JPEG, PNG, PDF and other non Microsoft document files located in cloud in either OneDrive or Sharepoint to be able to add it in the “Insert Link” feature when creating or responding to messages.

  10. "Time zone changed" alert even if I travel between countries in the same time zone

    Hello,

    I commute between the Slovak Republic and the Czech Republic almost every week. Every time I do so, Outlook shows me an alert:

    "The time zone setting for your computer has changed. Would you like to update the time zone setting in Outlook?"

    The Slovak Republic and the Czech Republic are in the same Time Zone.

    I use fast insider on macOS. My colleague commutes every day and he gets the same alert on the stable track on macOS. This issue has been happening to us at least for half a year already.

  11. Customizable quick action icons hovering over messages

    I want to be able to customize my quick action icons that appear when I hover over my messages. It's so easy to accidentally delete or archive a message when trying to mark it as important.

  13. I suggest you enable RSS feeds for Mac

    I suggest you enable RSS feeds for Mac. I really do. I know I'm not the first. I saw this posted previously and the response was:

    "Thank you for your feedback, we have reviewed this feature, unfortunately, we will not be implementing this feature as this does not align with our overall goals. Thank you for your continued participation in making Outlook for Mac better."

    Clearly we are not participating in making Outlook for Mac better. It won't happen because it doesn't align with "your' goals. I imagine the consumer goals are not important.

    My question is, what does having…

  15. I suggest non-English language text input method shortcut key must be prioritized than Outlook shortcut key.

    Non-English language text input method needs shortcut key to transform the characters like Kanji, Chinese character, etc.
    But Outlook and some Office application force to assign each application's shortcut and they disable text input method shortcut.
    This is really headache.
    Please give us shortcut key assignment settings in all office applications or leave the priority to text input method shortcut.

  16. Ability to permanently disable MS Add-Ins to Oulook for Mac

    Not everyone uses or wants to use OneNote or Customer Manager, and if you’re not using these applications, these buttons take up valuable space in the ribbon, hiding other more useful buttons - e.g. Read/Unread. I appreciate this issue is linked to screen size, and is therefore probably not an option on larger laptops or desktops screens, but it is a significant issue on smaller laptop screens.

    When I raised this with MS Support, I got the following response: "we are able to reproduce it on our end and we have a confirmation that this is expected behaviour for OneNote…

  18. Allow users to use unsecured port numbers such as 25 with SSL connection as some organization require this or have it enabled.

    Need the ability to use unsecured port numbers (like 25 or 110, etc.) with SSL connection due to the settings implemented by the IT Admins or requirements setup at the Server level. Other email clients allow this feature and having this enabled will help a lot of users.

  19. Accounts: advanced options

    In the "Old" Outlook preferences -> Accounts, there's an "Advanced..." option to be able to go in and make some changes to the account. This is no longer available in the "New" Outlook. It should still be available.
