  4. Enable Outlook windows to move between Spaces.

    I discovered that I cannot move Outlook windows to other Spaces either by dragging or switching while holding left click on the window border. I can however assign it explicitly to a desktop. This makes it inconvenient because I can’t bring a window to another space where I’m working on something and need the information from that Space.

  5. Allow download of just part of Office

    Hi. When logging into my account on Office.com to download Office software for my computer, I currently have to download a 1.68GB file. It would be better if I could choose to download only those parts of Office I want, in this case just Outlook (which is a much smaller file size!)

  7. When Outlook is in full screen mode, on a multi-monitor system, a "New" message is frozen in place and cannot be moved to the other screen.

    When Outlook is in full screen mode, on a multi-monitor system, a "New" message is frozen in place and cannot be moved to the other screen - this doesn't make sense and is a fairly irritating behavior.

  8. Support for "restore open documents and windows" as in any other app on macOS

    when opening MS office app, restore all open documents and windows showing the same position and content then before closing. Works with most other apps on macOS, but unfortunately has never been supported on MS Office.

  10. I suggest you make the Filter Email button work the same way all the buttons with drop downs do, when clicked.

    I suggest you make the Filter Email button work the same way all the buttons with drop downs do, when clicked.

    For example the Move, Junk, Rules and Categorize buttons.
    The Follow Up button is a notable exception because clicking it, and not the small "drop down triangle", performs a default action that would otherwise be available in the drop down.

    I would also suggest that the Filter Email button have this default action like the Follow Up button. Perhaps it should filter unread email since I believe that would be the most used filter or remember the last filter…

  11. Do something... anything

    Due to upcoming discontinuation of security updates, I paid over $100 to upgrade from Outlook for Mac 2011 to Outlook for Mac 2016. With all of the room for improvement in this product it is unbelievable that nothing has changed in 5 years.

  13. Allow us to move library files to a different location

    For those of us who have decades of emails with thousands of attachments, this can consume all your drive space really quit. Can you PLEASE allow us to manage where Outlook stores messages and attachments? My 256GB SDD had over 100GB taken by outlook.

  16. add a dicionary in the contextual menu

    Add the ability to right clic (control clic) on words and have a dictionary definition come up in the contextual menu. Given that I am dyslexic sometimes it is not possible for me to know if the correction suggested is right or wrong. giving a definition would really help as I correct. You have the option to show Synonyms and within that a Thesaurus, but what about a dictionary? Its seems such a simple omission from your programs.

  17. Restore window demensions correctly when Mac resumes from sleep.

    I've got a multi monitor setup with a new 2017 MacBook Pro. When the machine resumes from sleep and Outlook is on the second monitor it will default to a much smaller window in the upper left corner of the screen. This is a 31 inch ultra wide screen display. Other apps don't seem to have a problem keep their position and deminsions. Seems like a bug.

  20. Stop forcing the account description field to title/sentence case. Our company name is an acronym and we can't enter it correctly.

    It is silly to strip user formatting for no functional reason. Our company XXXX becomes Xxxx and looks silly.
