    • redirect email

      Fix the redirect function. When using the redirect, original sender should be shown not mine and redirected email can't be edited.

        • Please add "Recall this message" function for mac!

          Please add "Recall this message" function for mac!Every time when I would like to recall an email on my macbook, I need to open the Parallels Deask for windows and then open the outlook for windows to recall the email. It is so annoying. More importantly, in "recalling" situation, time is of the essence. In this sense, after I accomplish the two steps aforementioned, the reciever has already opened the mail and I would fail in the recall unfortunately.

          • Allow me to delete an appt for a conference room I no longer have access to book

            I was previously in a building in which all conf rooms were restricted. Our admin book some time from the room for a recurring meeting. Later, I moved to a new team at the same company, but now I cannot delete this appt. When I attempt to do so, I got a message stating I am not allowed to book this restricted conf room. Now I get no response, but the meeting stays on my calendar. Maybe my calendar is corrupted?

            • hide smart folders

              Add a preference to hide Smart Folders from the sidebar.

              It could go in the 'General' tab next to "Show all mail account folders" and "Hide on My Computer Folders". Also for consistencies sake, all these options should either be "show" or "hide", not an ugly mix of the two.

              • Office 365 For Mac should have the same features available for the PC.

                Office 365 For Mac should have the same features available that PC users get. You are paying for a half built product and this simply isn't good enough. I would like to be able to swap over from Google Docs but I am seriously looking at cancelling my office 365 subscription and going back to using Gmail / Calendar and Google Docs directly as there really isn't any point me using office 365 for Mac. It is as though Microsoft purposely want to focus on a product for their PC customers. If you made the product equal to that available…

                • Enable columns panel in the "Right" reading pane view

                  For the love of God, please enable columns in the right (reading) pane view (thus unifying the reading panes). This is so annoying not being able to do this. There is a plethora of space for those columns. Bottom view on Mac is not any good as can only see a small part of your email without additional scrolling.

                  • VBA macro enable

                    Add a data attachment extraction feature for which I normally would use VBA to achieve but you have disabled macros and does not work well with Apple automation unless the computer is left on 24/7. I get sent data daily as a csv file attached to an email.

                    • PPT notes need to be added to the export or covert to pdf option

                      I am very upset. I currently just switched from PC to MAC and there are options I've noticed I am not allowed to do with my MAC that I was allowed on PC.

                      On my ppt application there is a section under the ppt called NOTES in this section the Speaker of the Ppt can write notes related to each slide. I am currently trying to convert the ppt presentation to PDF. However, the option of adding the notes to the PPT presentation is only allowed in a PRINT option. Normally on a PC computer this is not an issue…

                              • Quick Shortcut Functions for Mail.

                                In the Windows version of Outlook, you included a handy feature on the banner of an individual email window that allows you to click an up arrow to view the next email and a down arrow to view your previous email. It would be nice to have this feature on the Outlook version for Mac. Also, the ability to quick reply, reply all, or forward an email from the preview window like you have in the current version of Outlook for windows.

                                  • Outlook for MAC - multiple screens connected - when my MAC book pro goes to sleep with Outlook on multiple displays, when the MAC is awaken

                                    Outlook for MAC - multiple screens connected - when my MAC book pro goes to sleep with Outlook on a multiple display, when the MAC is awakened, it never stays on the screen it was left on (like the other apps do), it always defaults to the MAC inbuilt display. Can this be amended so that it stays on the display on awakening where it is put?

                                    • I suggest that we could again to be able to Manipulate Points on Charts in Excel

                                      This was possible with past versions of Excel. Incredible useful.

                                        • Need .PST functionality on macOS

                                          Implement offline data file functionality on macOS similar to windows.

                                          If I ask myself what sets apart outlook from macOS mail, it is the way offline data handling is implemented in outlook. Once you are used to the convenience of using .PST files you are hooked to Outlook for the rest of your life.

                                          Which makes me wonder why it is implemented so differently on macOS. if one has to settle for anything less, then one might as well use the native mail app on macOS and steer clear of Outlook altogether.

                                          I would love to get the .pst functionality…
