  2. Menu items in main Window Outlook 2016

    I'm not sure about the international versions, but in the Dutch (NL) version of Outlook 2016 for Mac, the second menu-item on the left is named "Archief", which, of course, means Archive. It used to be "file" in Outlook 2011.
    However, NONE of the actions in the drop-down are related to 'archive', they are (mostly) related to message, or calendar item, contact person, task, or note. Is it to much asked to change the name of it to these particular functions, depending on the window we're in? Or at least change it back to 'file', or 'item'.

  4. Bug fix: Typing disappears from Contact Notes during Send/Receive operations. Workaround is to "Work Offline" Klunky!

    Fix the bug! This was a bug-a-boo in Outlook 2011. Frustrating to find it's worse in 2016. (In 2011 it was only a problem during Send, now it's both Send and Receive)

  6. Allow google contacts and calendar support for ALL Office 2016 MAC users. We are waiting.

    Hi,

    I have paid and purchased Office2016 for MAC and currently use that for my work e-mail (private e-mail vide IMAP) and Gmail.

    All my contacts are in my google account and I want to continue to have it that way.

    You have offered the feature to office insider who have an Office 365 account with apps.

    So what about the rest of us who paid to buy your software? Don't we get that release soon? It has been too long.

  10. I have a paradoxical situation

    I am interacting with the outlook feedback function on the upper right of the window.
    At a certain point, the whole Office for Mac became totally unstable, so I reinstalled the suite from scratch.
    But everytime I try to access the messages I get through the support function, Outlook crashes. Thus I have no link anymore and no possibility to get in touch.
    What can I do?

  14. Handle WIFI captive portals properly

    What is a captive portal? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Captive_portal
    Apple OS X handles captive portals specifically. I expect Outlook to do the same.
    You can check with the URI http://www.apple.com/library/test/success.html if the user needs to access the captive portal first prior doing any other requests (e.g. fetching E-Mails)

    Outlook should understand when the user is connected to a network with a Captive Portal and should react properly on it.

    At the moment shows a modal window with the following message. This is useless and distracting

    The message shown is the following.
    "https://hotspot.t-mobile.net" is the URI of the captive portal of the…

  15. Grant the ability to rather disable or hide the 'Smart Folders' folder

    I find that the ************* folder is quite distracting and when you have several accounts added, it's quite annoying and adds extra text where simplicity should be present.

  17. Focus on New Calendar Item

    For some reason, in the most recent version of Outlook for Mac, the focus for a new calendar item, either a new appointment or invitation, is shifting to the body of the item rather than the To: or Subject: line. This is NEW behavior. When I used to create a new invitation, I would right-click on the calendar in the time that I want, and click New Meeting. I could immediately begin typing Invitee names into the To: box. Now it's going to the body of the invite, and it's annoying to have to click. Why did you change this…

  19. Outlook 15.39 Restore tight list spacing option

    Sometime around v15.37, the spacing between items in a list of messages, tasks, etc was increased. This does not increase readability, but does greatly reduce the number of list items visible on one screen.

    In v.15.38 and prior, it was possible to use the terminal command:

    defaults write ~/Library/Containers/com.microsoft.Outlook/Data/Library/Preferences/com.microsoft.Outlook ItemListTextSize 0

    to restore the former tight line spacing. In v.15.39, this defaults command no longer works.

    Please restore the ability to modify the plist file so that tight line spacing is again available in Outlook for Mac.
