  2. Allow users to disconnect completely Office 2016 for Mac from access the internet

    When a Mac connect to internet via proxy, Keberos authentication refuse to accept valid proxy credential.

    To be able to turn off Template downloading is also fine.

  3. show the number of follow up tasks

    I'd like to see a small icon with a number by the tasks icon when you open mail, so I can see how many tasks I have due.

  4. Default text wrapping style for pasted images

    Please provide the option to set a default text wrapping style like in Windows Word 2016 so when I paste an image it is always pasted as "In Line with Text" or "In Front of Text"

  5. Fix the Inbox being opened to a random email when opening Outlook

    My Outlook currently shows a random email when I launch the application. Please fix it so that it opens the most recent email aka the top of my inbox. Or at least make it an option.

  6. The export function in Outlook 2011 doesn't work; it stops the export when you stipulate where to save. Pleasee send instructions.

    The export function in Outlook 2011 does not work (or I don't understand how to use it). I go through each dialog box and click the boxes I want but when I go to the SAVE, the export function displays the message"Export not completed; you ended the export process before it could be completed (or words to that effect) Please send me instructions on how to use this export function @ paulrfontenot@att.net. Please direct me to any existing "fixes" for this problem. :-(

  7. Limit search to a specific account

    I have multiple accounts (and delegate mailboxes) in my Outlook, and I would like to limit any given search within a particular account. The way search now works, I can only search "current folder" (or subfolders), or "all mail" - which leads to a ton of duplicates and mail for accounts that may not be at all related to my search. Having the ability to granularly select which accounts are included in a search (or even just exclude certain ones within Preferences) would be a massive help for usability.

  8. Remove Spell checker

    There's no need to complicate app with its own spell checker. Mac OS has an excellent spell checker already.

    Spell checker is opened with command + shift + : shortcut.

    You can remove a lot of code and save a lot of maintenance.

  9. This is not something that you can fix; it's too late for that. I just wanted to express my opinion about the "look and feel" of Office

    I just wanted to express my opinion about Office 2016 for MAC. I am deeply disappointed in the "look and feel" of your new Office applications; it is clearly a step backwards as far as the graphics are concerned. I was very disappointed that Office 2011 is far superior to Office 2016 even though it is a 32 bit application(s).

    One thing I think you ought to include is a function to import folders from Outlook 2011 to Outlook 2016. I have a ton of folders with hundreds of emaIs that need to be migrated to Outllook 2016..........Please help with…

  10. Change the badge on the Outlook dock icon so that it can only display new messages in the main inbox, not all inboxes. Like it used to.

    Change the badge on the Outlook dock icon so that it can only display new messages in the main inbox, not all inboxes. You know, like it used to. "Not feasible" my ***.

  11. Remove the notes, categories & todos no one uses. They are already replaced by other tools.

    Remove anything not essential, like notes and to-dos. Reduce Outlook to email and (maybe) calendar, leave the rest to better tools.

  12. Top pane customization

    Can we get the ability to add buttons to the ribbon/ top pane where the "print" icon is? This makes certain features easier and less time consuming. Thank you!

  13. Make archiving easier there is documentation for archiving but it does not work?

    Just add it. It can't be that hard. Unless one side of the business is not allowing the other side of the business to program this feature

  16. Make Business Contact Manager available to Office 365 Users.

    Why it would be available for Outlook 2013 and not 365 subscribers is odd. Perhaps it is coming. I'm considering purchasing ACT software but would prefer to stay in the Microsoft universe of products and be able to leverage the stylus and perhaps OneNote integrations.

  17. Make the search box bigger on Outlook for Mac

    The search box in the top-right corner should be much larger when focused

    I use this functionality a lot, and if it auto-expanded when I clicked on it it would be fantastic, as generally I'm using a mix of general search terms & metadata ie from:user@domain.com term1 term2 hasattachment:yes, etc.
