  1. Support import and export of both local and server based rules

    Be able to export and import of local and server rules for outlook. There is a general import export which could be enhanced to allow this. It would be very helpful for profile clean-up This way one could separate the good stuff, then drop the junk and import the good stuff again in a refreshed profile.

  2. Enable check-box selection of multiple categories at the same time. Avoid looping click sequence to add multiple categories.

    Categories are an excellent feature as an alternative to layered folders and duplicated emails where the mails discusses multiple projects/subjects. Using it this way leads often to a requirement to assign multiple categories to a single email. Currently this requires looping through the category assignment multiple times. It would be ideal to be able to assign multiple categories in a single step using the current category menu with a check-box selection feature to compliment the current 'point and click'. Thanks.

  3. Support more file types in “Insert Link” smart link feature.

    Be able to see and insert file types like JPEG, PNG, PDF and other non Microsoft document files located in cloud in either OneDrive or Sharepoint to be able to add it in the “Insert Link” feature when creating or responding to messages.

  4. Make prominent notification or icon when Outlook is not connected to the server

    Please make it more prominent, when Outlook isn’t connected to the server. The status bar on the bottom right of Outlook for Mac is not that noticeable.

    It would be great to have a more clear signal when Outlook is offline.

  5. Alert for activation if activation is required

    Be able to see an alert if an office or Outlook needs to be reactivated due to expired license or subscription not renewed. Similar alert you we can see in Windows Office/Outlook to sign in if needed to activate.

  6. Add right-click on email and/or calendar to create One Note page

    Similar to Windows, I need the ability to right-click on a meeting in Calendar, or on an email, and create a new page in One Note. In addition, the One Note page should have the meeting information or email header information respectively.

  8. Allow users to use unsecured port numbers such as 25 with SSL connection as some organization require this or have it enabled.

    Need the ability to use unsecured port numbers (like 25 or 110, etc.) with SSL connection due to the settings implemented by the IT Admins or requirements setup at the Server level. Other email clients allow this feature and having this enabled will help a lot of users.

  12. I suggest you provide support for storing Outlook identity on an external drive and/or alternate location.

    Currently Outlook for Mac requires storing Outlook Identity under home foolder taking space on a primary hard drive. I would suggest supporting using a different location so that users are able to keep their mails, contacts, etc. on an external drive or even on a SAN.

  15. icons

    I want to Change size on the icons in ribbon bar. (Tiny, Small, normal)
    It takes up to much space, when you want to work "minimized"
    Add buttons inside the mail header for the most common tasks.
    Reading a mail: Reply, Reply all, Forward, Delete

    New mail: Put in icons in "Window top bar, beside the icons for Save and Printer: Send

    In this way, you can work much more focused, without showing the Ribbon bar.

  16. Office for Mac keeps asking permission to switch time zones. Please stop. Just switch automatically like every other app

    I'm a pilot. I'm constantly getting asked whether I want to use the time zone I'm in.

  17. Place "Check for Updates" in the correct, standard place (the Application menu) instead of the Help menu (nonstandard).

    Mac design standards dictate the placement of Check for Updates goes in the App menu. Putting it in the Help menu is bizarre and non-intuitive.
