  1. Help menu with images that look like system

    It would be helpful to have an image showing for instance the preference page with clickable links.
    I'm trying to E-mail Address Validation information and the search feature shows thousands of options but not related to that preference

  2. Add the ability to send positive feedback as well 😀

    Sometimes we get caught up in what is wrong with the product, but I do like how other Office for Mac products besides Outlook (currently) allow us to define feedback as either positive or negative. Why not give the developers a little support for their hard work, and do the same for Outlook for Mac?

  3. In Outlook 2016 for Mac, if you forward a meeting invite, the meeting invite/email is not listed in your Sent folder. This should show Sent.

    In Outlook 2016 for Mac, if you forward a meeting invite, the meeting invite/email is not listed in your Sent folder.

    This should show in the Sent email as proof that the meeting was shared out and record the time it was sent.

  5. Consistency in hiding passwords

    When you trim the length of the hidden password please always trim it and don't initially start showing dots, then go to one dot later.

  7. Sync with corporate Exchange network (like Windows)

    Outlook for Mac is still failry useless for Apple/Mac users until it can fully sync with calendars in an Exchange network. Thank goodness for OWA, which provides full functionality. WHEN will MS make Outlook for Mac OS and iOS the same as it does for Windowsusers?

  8. fix text selection around a space

    When you try to highlight text and click on the left side of a space and drag right, the word to the left of the selection point is highlighted as well. That doesn't make sense in most uses: if I am dragging to the left I am looking to work with that text, and if I drag to the right I am looking to work on that side. Using the space as the demarcation doesn't make logical sense. If I were to be starting a rage somewhere within the word, then I can understand the auto-selecting. But if I want…

  9. Allow to turn off Reminders for individual accounts in Calendar

    I sync my Apple Outlook calendar with 3 different accounts. I only want the Reminders application to show me reminders for calendar events on one of them, not the other two. I suggest you add a simple option for each account to allow the user to say whether that calendar's items show up in the Reminders window or not.

  12. Completely get rid of (or retire) the .ics

    Please consider to completely retire .ics system. It's just adding a lot of steps to download the .ics file so that Outlook calendar can recognize the event. Try to streamline this process just like Google Calendar. Thanks!

  13. Fix search indexing so that search works properly

    Outlook search for Mac is inconsistent and I constantly have to run the Outlook Search repair tool which has since broken from the last fast ring build.

  15. Upon reading email, please mark as read.

    When I click on an email and read it, I expect the email to be marked as read. It is not.

    Instead, when you close the email, it's marked read. This is not very intuitive.

  20. Make rules a lot more flexible

    Improve rule syntax with AND and OR operations, wildcards for more general matching, and tiered approach for rule application.
