  1. Scheduling Assistant

    While scheduling assistant allows you to select "Show Work Hours" when Work Days are made in Outlook preferences, it would be great to reflect the work days as well when using Scheduling assistant. For eg. If M-F are set as my work days, I should only see those days in scheduling assistant and not Saturday and Sunday;

  2. 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.

  9. I suggest you provide support for storing Outlook identity on an external drive and/or alternate location.

    Currently Outlook for Mac requires storing Outlook Identity under home foolder taking space on a primary hard drive. I would suggest supporting using a different location so that users are able to keep their mails, contacts, etc. on an external drive or even on a SAN.

  12. icons

    I want to Change size on the icons in ribbon bar. (Tiny, Small, normal)
    It takes up to much space, when you want to work "minimized"
    Add buttons inside the mail header for the most common tasks.
    Reading a mail: Reply, Reply all, Forward, Delete

    New mail: Put in icons in "Window top bar, beside the icons for Save and Printer: Send

    In this way, you can work much more focused, without showing the Ribbon bar.

  13. Office for Mac keeps asking permission to switch time zones. Please stop. Just switch automatically like every other app

    I'm a pilot. I'm constantly getting asked whether I want to use the time zone I'm in.

  14. Place "Check for Updates" in the correct, standard place (the Application menu) instead of the Help menu (nonstandard).

    Mac design standards dictate the placement of Check for Updates goes in the App menu. Putting it in the Help menu is bizarre and non-intuitive.
