  1. Bring the SSO login pop-up to front automatically

    The current SSO login pop-up often is not brought to the front automatically, and is therefore hidden. The consequence of this is that emails go unchecked for long periods of time. A better UI for this would be much appreciated.

  4. Add to Calendar

    When an incoming email contains a date or time reference in the body or subject, it would be great to click on the date and choose to add the event into the Calendar module. Apple's Mail programme does this adding events into the Calendar App.

  7. macos font

    I work at an organization with G Suite, and I'd like to configure Outlook replies to be "invisible" from Gmail replies.

    For macOS, this means better control over fonts, and control over the custom attribution.

    I set my default reply font to Arial 11, but I am reading messages in Calibre. Also, my attribution text will appear in Calibre when my message above it appears in Arial! I'd like to change the font everywhere ("On [DATE], "[NAME]" [ADDRESS] wrote:")

    I'd also like to change the attribution so I can match Google's default of "On Aug 28, 2020, "... rather than…

  8. New outlook for Mac

    I LOVE the new outlook for Mac format. However, I cannot have multiple mailboxes lined, so had to switch back.

    Please can you enable this functionality so I can use both my frequently used mailbox and calenders in the new format.

    Thanks in advance.

  10. I suggest you allow a narrower width split-screen Outlook windows.

    I keep Outlook running in split-screen mode on macOS. The two windows I have open are mail messages and the calendar. This is on my 13" laptop. I'd like to make the Calendar nice and wide and the mail message fairly narrow, maybe a 1/3 2/3 split. As it is, the mail message window won't allow me to set it very narrow. The best I can get is maybe a 40/60 split.

  11. 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.

  12. 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?

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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. 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…

  20. 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…
