  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. 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.

  8. 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?

  9. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. Change the color of bottom banner

    Hi there. The current grey bottom banner takes a lot of space on the screen with very little information offered, and it makes the UI design look unfinished. Please consider change it to white to visually merge with the rest of the window, so that the overall look of the interface looks complete and final on a full-screen view.

  16. 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…

  18. 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.

  19. 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.
