  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. Highlight All Other Emails in a Conversation When an Email is Selected

    If your inbox is organized by Date Received, when you select a message, then all the other messages in that Conversation should be highlighted slightly. So you can quickly scroll through your inbox and see if there have been any other emails in that chain. Older versions of Outlook had this helpful feature, but it's been removed in the current version (v 15.24 is what I have).

  9. Several identities like first outlook

    The versions of Outlook in classic, had a fantastic option: to create different profiles from user in the program, what allows to create groups of accounts (personal, work,…) without mixing post office among them.
    Use four accounts of mail, when creating rules to classify it in separated folders, I end up mixing messages of all of them if I do not have much taken care of when generating the rule.
    This diminishes when using profiles.
    At the moment, I am using different clients from mail with each group of accounts, to regenerate the organized mess.
    Another option that I consider,…

  10. One Outlook regardless of OS platform

    End the tiresome attempt to make 2016 Outlook for Mac different than the 2016 Outlook for Windows. The vast majority of outlook users come from the windows PC environment and having to use Outlook on a Mac is too different and seems dumbed down. There wouldn't be so many posts from users requesting features that are common the Windows counterpart, if this wasn't the case. The two versions already look similar, so now let make them the same. So please, let there be One Outlook regardless of OS it's used on. Please.

  11. stop trying to verify my subscription on startup

    I have paid in advance for one year. So why does Microsoft need to verify my subscription every time I start up outlook from a fresh reboot? If I am offline, I get a pop-up explaining that outlook could not verify my subscription. one of the options is 'remind me later, in which everything continues to work anyway. What is the point in this rubbish message? Get rid of it!

  14. Add a shortcut to toggle folder pane

    I do most of my work in the inbox, but not all. A quick way to show/hide the pane would be useful.

  16. stop using wingdings

    Emails received from Windows users have emoticons displayed as "J". It turns out some idiot Microsoft developer is converting :) to Wingdings font specific character, which in fact violates unicode standards. Broken.

  17. I suggest you to create a stable, functioning version of outlook, which never crashed and keeps resilience during work. It's a real pain in

    I suggest you to create a stable, functioning version of outlook, which never crashed and keeps resilience during work. It's a real pain in *** that each time something changes at network settings (getting into VPN, getting out of VPN, changing from cable network to WIFI) Outlook just plain crashes and has to be restarted. When will you ever provide stable software?

  18. Support Salesforce Lightning for Outlook integration

    When Lightning for Outlook finishes rendering in Outlook, a yellow banner reading "The option to relate emails isn't available now. Please check back shortly." gets displayed, effectively preventing associations of Outlook items with Salesforce records to be made. Or a red banner reading "Because Microsoft Exchange isn't available now, you can't relate emails and their attachments to Salesforce records until Exchange is available again."

  19. use gravatar for contacts that have no profile image but do have a gravatar

    When a contact does not have a profile image but the user does have a gravatar image it would be nice if outlook used the gravatar image instead of the default coloured cirlce with initials.
