  1. End meetings early for Outlook for Mac

    As described on this page, please add the ability to end meetings early for parity on the Windows version of Office 365 the way it's described below.

    Especially during these times of this pandemic, having a built in mechanism to allow for time after meetings to check on family and prepare for next tasks.

    End meetings early

    If you're using Outlook for Microsoft 365, you can now have Outlook end your meetings a few minutes early. This can help you build in travel time between meetings. You can choose a different duration for meetings under one hour and meetings…

  2. Please bring back the categories feature in Outlook for Mac.

    It difficult to filter out the information while on the Calendar, Notes, Task or Contacts.

    At least give the option to filter by Category on list view and collapse group like in Windows Outlook.

  4. FIX: 2020 Outlook for Mac UI doesn't show coworker's calendars

    I tried the new 2020 Outlook for Mac UI... it looked much better but when I tried to view coworkers calendars I could not see any other contact in my organization. When I set up a meeting, I couldn't even use scheduling assistant to see the invitees time conflicts for that meeting. I had to revert back to the older version because this is showstopper missing functionality.

  8. focus time

    When scheduling "focus time" in calendar, Cortana should allow me to schedule this time in a different color, so it is easy for me to see where I have "mental breaks" in the day or when I will be able to do my follow-up tasks from my meetings in the day.

  10. Calendar selection for new appointments

  13. Allow color coding for large blocks of time (weeks, months, quarters).

    Allow color coding for large blocks of time (weeks, months, quarters). Color coding events is great, but it would be super helpful to be able to color code large blocks of time. Project based scheduling would benefit from this feature.

  15. Deadlines function for calendar

    Introduce a deadlines function for calendars to help users keep track of upcoming tasks. The "Meetings" function is not useful for this. A large number of academic institutions in the UK use Outlook. Students need visibility of deadlines.

  16. I suggest you in Outlook, to have possibility "to switch off" automatic deleting e-mail

    I suggest you in Outlook, to have the possibility "to switch off" automatic deleting e-mail if e-mail is indicated as meeting invitation. Because very often "this kind of e-mails" - invitations, consists "meeting invitation link". And if you have connected/sync mobile phone with desktop comp, you can simply lose invitation link.

  17. Create a static mtg ID option -

    Is there a way to schedule a meeting using Teams with a static meeting id? I schedule weekly back to back one on one with my individual team members and I don’t want to have to leave one meeting just to have to join another. I want to schedule their meetings, I join and then they each join at their scheduled times. Is this possible?

  18. Use Custom Signature for allotted time frame

    It would be great if Outlook had similar functionality to Out of Office messages where a signature during a designated time period. For instance, we a company is promoting a special event, the "event signature" would drop off after the event is over and revert to the standard signature.

  20. recommend to the platform designers to include in an update an option to unlink this special coding between calendars, as color is in place

    please recommend to the platform designers to include in an update an option to unlink special color-tagging coding between calendars, as color is in place to help in organization and not disrupt these systems; for a user whose calendar I help manage, the color coding is useful for them (using these multiple colors for this one person's calendar), but, it conflicts with the color coding system I find useful for my work (which aligns one color per person); it seems to have been developed by the user applying tags to certain meetings in their calendar. As when someone changes the…
