  2. Add an easier way to turn OFF reading pane permanently.

    Add an easier and reliable way to turn OFF reading pane permanently. PLEASE. It's extremely annoying how I can "turn it off" yet I go to a different folder then change back to the original folder and the pane is back up again.

  3. attachment

    Cannot attach the Files and there is no option to preview. Only download and open to OneDrive. The last update was August 4, 2015. How could this be happening? We don't have choice but to upload to OneDrive which we don't want it to do. Please do something as soon as possible.

  7. Make Office AutoUpdate great again!

    Please, Make MS Office Auto Update for MacOS less annoying. Let it check for updates in background without windows, and have an option to auto download updates. And tell us about the updates right there, without link following and reading those lengthy web-pages about all possible Office updates.

  8. Jump to mailbox feature

    Outlook should have a "jump to mailbox" feature. Like filing email, but instead "take me mailbox X"

  14. Allow Mutliple Directory Servers

    allow Outlook to be configured with more then one directory server for an account.
    We use Exchange accounts and configure the Directory Services for our Domain server. It would be nice to be able a "failover" DC in Directory Servers.

  17. Add more keyboard shortcuts - create new appointment

    Something I miss from Windows Outlook now that I am on Mac is a quick way to create an appointment. Control-Shift-A did it wonderfully on Windows. On Mac, first I have to switch to the calendar mode and then I can create a new item and then switch back to previous mode. So, I can do it with Cmd-2 + Cmd-N <enter appt data> and Cmd-1. That is bulky and slow switching modes.

  18. Outgoing email

    Allow to interrupt an email from going out and edit it. There's no outgoing box like the previous version Outlook 2010 for mac.
    Please bring this back.

    Thanks.

  19. Categories

    To be able to mark several appointments, mails etc. and then click ONE TIME at ONE category. Foolish to remove that from 2011 version, so you have to click one at a time.

  20. Add an option to have Outlook send a daily/weekly summary of events and tasks that has essential details for offline use.

    This could include Event or Task title, time, location, event organizer contact info and the content of the event in case it has webex type details.
