  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 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

  4. 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!

  6. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. Look into the flickering screen issue associated with Outlook and iMac 2015

    There is an issue that others seem to be having when using Outlook on a late 2015 iMac. We have 3 employees at my company with late 2015 Retina 5K iMacs (27", 3.2GHz Intel Core i5 Processor and 8GB 1867 MHz DDR3 Memory) whose screens will flicker and turn white/black, but when they restart it fixes the issue for a day. Then it happens again. It seems to happen when Outlook is open, which we are constantly using, and from another forum, it seems to be happening to many other people with this same exact model iMac and Outlook. Apple…

  12. Outlook appearance is too bright in regular mode and too dark in dark mode. Additional viewing backgrounds in preferences.

    Regular mode viewing is too bright and too washed out confusing the reading pane with the sidebar and the titles panes. The reading pane should stand out without being too bright and the side bars and title panes to be more indicative of where the focus is. Similarly in dark mode, too dark and the different panes become a scrambled mess visually.

  14. Able to choose public or private sharing option upon attaching the cloud links for “Insert Link” feature.

    Be able to attach files using the Smart link feature and choose either to share it to the public or to private individuals. Most of the users use the Smart link feature and sending it to someone outside of the organization.

  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. 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…

  19. Make prominent notification or icon when Outlook is not connected to the server

    Please make it more prominent, when Outlook isn’t connected to the server. The status bar on the bottom right of Outlook for Mac is not that noticeable.

    It would be great to have a more clear signal when Outlook is offline.

  20. Option to restore open windows(such as messages and/or drafts when restarting Outlook on Mac(not sure if windows does this already)

    Option to restore open windows(such as messages and/or drafts when restarting Outlook on Mac(not sure if windows does this already, if it doesn't it would be a great feature for both versions.) sometimes you don't want to choose between eating battery life and forgetting to read/respond to certain emails.
