      • Icons version 16.20 for Mac

        The new icons are very very very ugly. That pure white over light gray is unappealing and they are all so similar that I need a few seconds of thinking and reading what they are before I can press them.

        PS: How sneaky is it that I have to agree to be bombarded with stuff to submit my feedback?

                  • Noticed some changes in Outlook 365 since I updated to iOS Mojave version 10.14.2 for MAC. Are updates coming soon?

                    I am using iOS Mojave 10.14.2. It would be nice if MS Outlook 365 changed with my preferences for either Light Mode or Dark Mode. Right now I seem to have half light and half dark. Before I did the Apple update MS Outlook had changed over to Dark Mode (after a less recent Microsoft Update).

                          • Unhide show_in_navigation_pane column in Edit_Categories dialogue -- make category_name column width 50 percent

                            Problem = show_in_navigation_pane column in Edit_Categories dialogue is not visible

                            column widths for category_name is too wide. This moves show_in_navigation_pane too far to right.

                            No right-left scroll tool available to see additional column in Edit_Categories dialogue for Mac Outlook

                            The default column widths for the Preferences > Edit_Categories has the default width of the category_name column set to be approximately 100 percent of the width of the dialogue category selector.

                            Because there is no horizontal slider as there would be in the Windows version of the category_edit dialogue, the three columns the default width of the category_name column being defaulted…

                              • Allow users to customise the touch bar

                                In spite of a similar looking request being marked completed, Microsoft has still not provided end users the ability to customise the touch bar. This is standard functionality in most modern Mac applications and is useful for many different good reasons, particularly for applications as sophisticated as the Microsoft Office suite - there is a lot of scope for customising to one's own workflow.

                                Please!! Let us customise the touch bar!!

                                • Bug when external display is non-retina – ribbon text becomes blurred

                                  The new design of ribbon icons and menu text can't handle when some windows are open on a non-retina screen, the ribbon becomes blurred and difficult to read.

                                  If the application is opened on a non-retina screen (think large external monitor to a laptop), everything is fine – but the moment a window of the application is dragged to the laptop's retina screen, and then dragged back, all the menu text blurs horribly.

                                  (Re-sizing the affected window fixes, presumably triggering a re-paint of the window sorts it.)

                                  Issue seen on Mojave and Outlook v16.20

                                  • 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…

                                    • Need .PST functionality on macOS

                                      Implement offline data file functionality on macOS similar to windows.

                                      If I ask myself what sets apart outlook from macOS mail, it is the way offline data handling is implemented in outlook. Once you are used to the convenience of using .PST files you are hooked to Outlook for the rest of your life.

                                      Which makes me wonder why it is implemented so differently on macOS. if one has to settle for anything less, then one might as well use the native mail app on macOS and steer clear of Outlook altogether.

                                      I would love to get the .pst functionality…

                                      • Optimize UI

                                        The scroll bar and the "flag mail" option are overlapping, so each time I want to flag a mail I end up scrolling.

                                        This should be fixed.

                                        • UI Error

                                          Outlook for Mac, Version 16.22

                                          In the main window, where all the mails are listed be it Inbox, Sent, Deleted Items or any folders; at the bottom of the frame, the border line is fat compared to any other frames. This error is constantly seen when we click on any folders.

                                          Another error I noticed is, when I expand Outlook in "full screen mode", the bottom grey status bar changes completely. It has some kind of dark embossed shade of lines (long dotted lines). This is the status bar that shows - Items: 21; All folders are up to date;…
