  1. Add Visio for Mac

    Why can't we have Visio for Mac, as we do for PCs? In fact, why can't we have exactly the same software functionality for a Mac as we do for PCs in general? But my main ask is for Visio!

  2. Allow users to define the "Theme Fonts" for Outlook emails and calendar items.

    The preferences in Outlook allow a user to set default fonts when creating items, but this only applies to the first text entered in the message box. If the text insertion point is placed elsewhere, the text will be in the "Theme Font" that is listed in the font selection drop down box. This "Theme Font" is Calibri, and presently there is no way to change this "Theme Font". The result is messages done in multiple fonts, or constantly having to change stuff from the "Theme Font" to whatever the user prefers.

  3. 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;

  4. For Mac Outlooks that are slow to connect to the Exchange Online (>= 3 to 5 mins), provide illustration of settings needed to improve.

    The article at https://support.office.com/en-us/article/advanced-exchange-account-settings-for-outlook-for-mac-22af6b87-a090-4476-8e34-6e3c5fd619ad?ui=en-US&rs=en-US&ad=US describes fields available to configure the account, but there are no examples of the field entries that could serve to make this easier to determine.

    For instance, for a Mac working inside a Windows AD domain, how would the entry for "Directory Service Server" (Also known as an LDAP server. Enter the name of the server that is provided by your system administrator. This server address is commonly the same address as your Microsoft Exchange Server address, but this is not always true.)... How would this be formatted in the field? IP address, \servername, server.domain.local, etc.?

  5. Support import and export of both local and server based rules

    Be able to export and import of local and server rules for outlook. There is a general import export which could be enhanced to allow this. It would be very helpful for profile clean-up This way one could separate the good stuff, then drop the junk and import the good stuff again in a refreshed profile.

  7. Preferred the previous style of Outlook, new format looks plain and child like, not easy on the eyes. Classic look preferred.

  8. View Calendar when in Mail view

    In older (possibly non-Mac) versions of Outlook I was able to view my calendar on the right side of the Outlook window, while I was also reviewing my email. I haven't been able to find a way to add the calendar to this view. It's helpful to be able to keep an eye on upcoming meetings while reviewing email, without having to switch to the calendar view.

  10. Allow Inactive Office365 accounts in Outlook for Mac

    We work with a number of clients and have several Office365 accounts. When I am no longer active on a client, the Office365 account for that client gets disabled. Outlook then pops up the update password panel each time I open Outlook. It looks like the only option I have is to delete the account, but I need to keep the emails for reference and retention purposes. It would be great if there was an account preference to set the Account to Inactive so that Outlook no longer attempts to update anything (email and calendar) on the Account.

  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?

  12. Seems latest version of Outlook is not meant for Mac!

    So many useful features (recalling message, importing holidays) are not available in latest Outlook for Mac, it's disappointing! Basically MS is sending a message for NOT to use Outlook in Mac (particularly for corporate users)

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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…
