  1. Ticker tape feature for General company notifications

    Create a ticker tape feature to send periodic company updates versus sending emails to everyone.

  2. Rating

    Please stop nagging for an app rating all the time. I am busy with work and it makes me want to give a 1 star rating.

  4. Keep original formatting after pasting copied text of a different format

    There should be an option to toggle this. It's annoying to have have to waste time and reformat text after it absorbs the format from pasted text.

  5. Microsoft developers should use DevOps with Net.Core for cross platform development themselves

    Interesting to read that Microsoft is enabling cross platform development on .net Core for Android, Linux, Apple and Windows...and the development teams of Microsoft themselves are not capable of bringing out a similar Outlook for Mac, Windows and Linux at the same moment with the same functionality...

    A good practice is to use your own stuff first before having your customers find all kid diseases...

  6. Common Backup File Format for Mac and Windows

    Hello!
    Outlook should have the same backup file formats, regardless of the platform/host. If neither PST or OLM are appropriate, a new file type should be developed to become a universal standard, in order to create seamless workflows.
    Currently, is like having two Photoshop file types (PSD and PSSomething), depending on the operating system you're working, making it a very unproductive process.

  9. Change cursor from black to white in Contact Support Window

    The Contact Support window in dark mode is very easy on the eyes. It is not hard to read the text messages between myself and the techs. However, it is extremely hard to see the black cursor against the dark background. Please change the cursor to white! What's the use of having white text on a dark background, with a black cursor? Thanks!

  10. Sync Errors window

    I wish the errors, the “warning icon”, the whole sync errors window, and the fact that it needs to be “cleared” to dismiss the warning icon – ALL could be removed from the app or at least be disabled by default.

    1) It creates a sense that something is wrong – usually for no reason
    2) creates unnecessary questions
    3) creates unnecessary effort to clear the messages
    4) overall, is a distraction.

  11. add a dicionary in the contextual menu

    Add the ability to right clic (control clic) on words and have a dictionary definition come up in the contextual menu. Given that I am dyslexic sometimes it is not possible for me to know if the correction suggested is right or wrong. giving a definition would really help as I correct. You have the option to show Synonyms and within that a Thesaurus, but what about a dictionary? Its seems such a simple omission from your programs.

  12. Allow to add Office 365 Groups into Outlook Favorites

    Allow to add Office 365 Groups into Outlook Favorites. The new Favorites option in Outlook for Mac is awesome. I wish we could add Office 365 Groups to this section.

  13. Responding multiple calendar events in one go

    Would be great if you could select a whole bunch of items in the calendar, and “Cancel meeting” or “Decline Invite” for them all, with a single editable response e.g. “Sorry, On Vacation for this one”.
    It should modify only Occurrences, so that the repeated meetings continue, after you return.

    Just a thought :)

  14. MAKE ALL ERROR MESSAGE POPUPS BE CUT/PASTABLE EVERYWHERE in ALL SOFTWARE! If one has to capture the image and result will be much larger.

  15. Enhance the support dialog

    The support dialog is great, but the text input field at the bottom should expand vertically as the amount of text increases. It's hard to review a multi-line submission with the text field as it is.

    Furthermore, there should be a hotkey to send the entry in the text input field (e.g. Command-Enter). Having to switch to the mouse or trackpad slows things down.

  16. Enlarge the hit areas for Area Switching in Outlook

    Right now to switch between Mail and Calendar (just for example) you have to target a very small icon. (This is reminiscent of the infinitely small Start button from Windows 95 - Google it)

    You should increase the size of the hit area beyond that little icon as there's 4x the amount of dead space in that control cluster than you're currently using for actually enabling the user to hit the button.
