  1. Report an issue disappeared from help menu

    The "Report an issue" option has disappeared from my Outlook Help menu. It's been gone for some time now, but I used to rely on it quite a bit when I found issues in the fast release builds. My Outlook client is not managed and the feature is not disabled in prefs.

    When closing Outlook and restarting it, only main windows get restored. Please add the ability to reopen all previously open message windows too.

  3. Alert for activation if activation is required

    Be able to see an alert if an office or Outlook needs to be reactivated due to expired license or subscription not renewed. Similar alert you we can see in Windows Office/Outlook to sign in if needed to activate.

  4. Add right-click on email and/or calendar to create One Note page

    Similar to Windows, I need the ability to right-click on a meeting in Calendar, or on an email, and create a new page in One Note. In addition, the One Note page should have the meeting information or email header information respectively.

  7. Setting of used Bandwith Limitation for small WAN Links

    In case of having small WLAN / WAN Connection it would be helpful to limit the Bandwidth used for up- and downloading items in the Background. This is available in one drive network settings and works fine there.

  8. automatic update - remove (frequent and annoying) prompt to change to automatic install

    When selecting the office update option "automatically check" (as opposed to "manually check" and "automatically download and install"), since a few weeks the user gets a pop-up in the OSX notification centre to turn on the "automatically download and install" option. Every time I choose the option 'not now', then the app Microsoft AutoUpdate is started. First you get another pop-up where you again have to choose 'not now' for the 'automatically download and install" option.
    Most of the time there is no update.

    I choose the "automatically check" option as I want to be notified that an update is…

  10. icons

    I want to Change size on the icons in ribbon bar. (Tiny, Small, normal)
    It takes up to much space, when you want to work "minimized"
    Add buttons inside the mail header for the most common tasks.
    Reading a mail: Reply, Reply all, Forward, Delete

    New mail: Put in icons in "Window top bar, beside the icons for Save and Printer: Send

    In this way, you can work much more focused, without showing the Ribbon bar.

  11. Icons version 16.20 for Mac

    The new icons are very very very ugly. That pure white over light gray is unappealing and they are all so similar that I need a few seconds of thinking and reading what they are before I can press them.

    PS: How sneaky is it that I have to agree to be bombarded with stuff to submit my feedback?

    Please add the option to have multiple tabs at the top of the Add-In window in Outlook for Mac. So it will be easier to switch between different add-ins in the same sidebar.

  14. Any chance you can offer a higher contrast theme (not Dark Mode) for Outlook on the Mac to increase the scannability of the ibnbox?

    I love using Outlook on the Mac, however find the scannability pretty sub-par in that I have to really focus when I'm working in the app. Some minor tweaks in contrast, as well as increased whitespace in email headers would be a BIG help to make using the app faster and would place less load on me while I work.

  16. In contacts and in categories, from outlook for mac 2011 to 2016, there seems to be a limit in the number of categories now! Help!

    I use contacts for my database and categories is extremely useful but ever since I upgraded from outlook for mac 2011 to 2016, there seems to be a limit in the number of categories now! Help! When you click on categorize, the ball spins for 30 seconds and when you use the slider to go to bottom of list, it does not go all the way. I discovered if you right click one of the categories in the contact itself you can see all and go to bottom. And you cannot search through categories now by typing in a few…

  17. Scheduling Assistant

    While scheduling assistant allows you to select "Show Work Hours" when Work Days are made in Outlook preferences, it would be great to reflect the work days as well when using Scheduling assistant. For eg. If M-F are set as my work days, I should only see those days in scheduling assistant and not Saturday and Sunday;

  19. Start Outlook minimized on boot

    When I reboot my Mac, the Outlook window pops up so I have to close it every time I open my Mac. It would be useful to add an option so it can start minimized (like it does when I close the window) every time the app is launched
