  1. sync contacts, calendar or emails selectively

    It isn't possible to only sync one application (such as calendar) without storing all email information locally.

  2. Option to open to All Accounts inbox

    Give the option for the application on Mac to open to All Accounts inbox instead of one of the individual accounts. This will allow the user to open the application to the all mailboxes instead of just landing on one (seemingly random and not the default) account.

  3. Add a button to quickly hide/show the sidebar.

    The sidebar takes a good mount of realestate when trying to multitask on a "smaller" screen like the newer macbook pro 13. Be nice to have a button and/or hotkey to hide/show the sidebar.

  5. battery

    Reduce battery usage.

    Currently Outlook for Mac uses too much battery.

  6. reminders

    I would like Reminders to stay active on screen when the Outlook program has been hided like the 2011 version.

    Currently the only way around is to close the Outlook window instead. If I have hided the program it is rather disruptive to have any reminder alerts as it brings the whole Outlook program to the front of whatever I'm working on, grr!

  7. Public Folders

    Add the "Folder" section that exists on the Windows version so we can see Public Folders in a more intuitive and consistent way with the Windows version

  9. Better out-of-office management

    I have scheduled an out-of-office message on a couple of my accounts. The schedule is quite clearly set to run until next Friday. Despite that, I get regular popups from Outlook asking me if I want to turn off out-of-office messages.

    How about making it simpler? If an out-of-office message is running on a schedule with a defined end date and time, don’t ask me to turn it off.

  10. Distribute Office 2016 apps via the Mac App Store

    Receiving updates would be easier avoiding the malfunctions of the AutoUpdate app.

  12. autodiscover

    Outlook 2010 and 2013 for Windows allow whitelisting of redirected autodiscover servers, which will prevent users from being presented with an "Outlook was redirected to the server <server fqdn> to get new settings for your account..." warning. https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2480582 An equivalent function in Office 2016 for Mac would be very useful. Personally I would expect to see the list stored in the user's Outlook preferences .plist.

  13. Czech language support

    Many customers in Czech Republic would love to see full Czech language support = localized interface and grammar check. Both features are available in Office for Windows

  16. Option to choose between multiple user profile when Outlook starts

    I created two profiles for private and business Mail accounts with the Outlook Profile Manager.

    When I start Outlook I expect (as with Windows) that I am asked with which profile I want to enter Outlook. Unfortunately, it is not so and I always start with the standard profile (can be defined in the Outlook Profile Manager).

  17. For online live lessons during the pandemic using Teams, please can we have option to see all faces/students' work in a class like with Zoom

    For online live lessons during the pandemic using Teams, please can we have the option to see all faces/students' work in a class like with Zoom. This would bring the online live lessons closer to face-to-face lessons and help with assessment and maintaining class community.

  20. Document Outlook for Mac & iOS Setup Scenarios

    Recently purchasing Office 365 for Mac I was hopeful that I could return to Outlook after many years of using the separate Apple products of Mail, Address Book and Calendar:
    (1) Applications installed on my Mac and iOS devices without issue
    (2) Basic setup straight forward
    (3) Was happy when I saw my contacts from iOS Address Book showing up in Outlook on the iOS device. Tried to keep these in sync, i.e. making mods in Address Book and having them show up in Outlook - NO GO. Tried to edit People in Outlook (those linked to Address Book -…
