  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. 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.

  5. 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

  6. 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

  7. Get a better support system.

    Have an additional option for Help/Support. Chat is not enough. Add phone support at a minimum. Ideally, add the ability to port in and be a real IT person.

  11. Provide option to *DISABLE* drag-and-drop editing and "smart" text selection

    Please provide option to DISABLE drag-and-drop editing and "smart" text selection.

    These two "features" causes me a lot of grief trying to edit wordings of a sentence. While trying to deal with smart selection that insists on selecting the entire word rather than a portion of it (or selecting additional elements not intended) that some how turned into a drag-and-drop editing, which then further screws up the editing. Frequent undos resulted and resorted to deleting and retyping the entire word or portion of the sentence.

    These features are supposed to help, not get in the way of the writer. I…

  12. Use local date format for tasks and follow-up

    I have set the date format to YYYY-MM-DD but there are tons of fields where I soo or need to enter US format. Why is this so inconsistent?

  13. Add (optional) confirmation window before closing the application

    pressing CMD+Q by mistake rather CMD+W closes the application.
    I wish to have an option to enable a confirmation window which will prevent the application closing.

  14. I suggest you unlock the ability to add addresses in Outlook for the Mac OS version 16.37...I can't believe you just released an updated ver

    Ok...I guess its a policy not to add support for customers who bought for Office 365 and use Google (Gmail) to add address editing to Outlook Contacts.

  16. Remove from signature templates

    Remove from signatures "He/Him/His", "She/Her/Hers" & "Them/They/Thiers". It's not necessary.

  17. To keep desktop version exactly the same as cloud version. Cloud is the best on usability now and i very much like it.

    Cloud version now has the best usability. The only missing feature is native notifications on meetings. But i love how it filters to show only new content in the email thread. Great job!

  18. Autoupdate

    AutoUpdate prompt that says "All apps are up-to-date." is quite annoying and just another bothersome click that I Have to focus on taking away my attention from what I want to do.

    If apps are up to date then you can put a notification banner in the app but not in the OS as a separate app that makes the user do something,

    Please change this.

  19. Merge Accounts (365 and outlook.com)

    I originally signed up for a Office 365 account using a Gmail address, not realizing Outlook also had a free account. I was switching internet providers and did not want to lose my emails and contacts. Since I had purchased the 365 product, I figured I would use the outlook program for my email, only to find out I could not import my contacts from my webmail account. The files were not compatible. Also not being able to access the webmail emails through the online outlook is inconvenient. Now I have a 365 account with a Gmail email address and…

  20. Add an Undo button in the Home ribbon

    The undo feature exists with (ctrl|cmd)-z and in the edit menu, though those locations are pretty hidden. A nice prominent button in the ribbon would be convenient after accidentally deleting mail.
