  2. Outlook Mac 2019 (volume licensing version) directly open google agenda .ics calendars.

    Currently, having a google agenda in Outlook2019 is not possible without Office 365. My company is not using Office 365 or Sharepoint 2019, therefore I can't open my google web agenda.

  3. Why have you added having to hold control down as well when performing a 'send and receive" ?

    In the latest update why have you added having to hold down the control button as well ?

  6. Enable Office users to delete paper sizes for printing

    Even with my Mac default paper size for printing at "Letter," when I try to print e-mails from Outlook or documents from the other Office programs the default within the program switches to A4 and I end up with a failed print job and having to reset the shared office printer so other jobs can go through. I would LOVE to have no standard paper sizes other than Letter and Legal, and no specialties that were not envelopes or labels. We stock nothing else, in our office, and have stocked nothing else in over 13 years.

  7. you allow past meetings and/or dates to automatically shade a certain color

    In order to differentiate present date and meetings from past meetings, shade the calendar, or meetings a different color. Ex: Meeting from last week is not mistaken from meeting this week because it automatically is darkened because it is a past event. Maybe the week is shaded differently as wel..

  8. Always display the currently highlighted inbox message, rather than a message I just moved to an archive folder

    When I move a message to a folder in my archives, the content of that message remains displayed in the reading pane rather than the message currently highlighted in my inbox. Even if I click on that highlighted message, its content is not displayed in the reading pane, why? Every time, I have to click on another message and back on the previously highlighted one to finally see what it contains, which is very tedious.

  9. Fix non-standard text selection behavior

    Dragging upward while selecting text on the first line of an email does not select all the text to the left of the insertion point. A similar problem exists on the last line of text: dragging downward past the last line does not select text to the right of the insertion point on the last line.

    This is not standard behavior for a Mac app.

  10. Revert to Cmd-K for send receive from the current Ctrl-Cmd-K

    Send/Receive used to be Cmd-K. For some reason you have now changed this to Ctrl-Cmd-K, which is far less convenient. The amended command can now only be done by the left hand, whereas the previous command was ambidextrous on a standard Mac keyboard layout. I would like the Send/Receive to revert to Cmd-K.

  11. 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

  12. 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?

  13. 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.

  14. 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…

  16. Would love to have "Add to Auto-Correct" in Outlook for Mac, like in Word

    Please include "Add to Auto-Correct" when right clicking on a mis-typed word. This feature is included in Word, but not in Outlook for Mac.

  18. SCL and BCL column

    SPAM is not as simple as a “yes” or “no” answer. Users should be able to add a column in Outlook to display the SCL and BCL values at a glance. Today it requires a good bit of knowledge and extra hoop jumping to examine the headers to get these details that can otherwise be very valuable to an end user trying to determine the value of an email.

  19. Deleting an event from calendar reminder must open the event occurence and not the serie

    From the calendar reminder, if you click on "delete" it opens the event series and not the event occurence (single event).
    So if if we do not pay attention, we delete all the events !!!
    And we lost all because the deleting event is definitively deleting (not present on the deleting items).
    The problem is only for the Outlook local software. On the web software (or Windows local software) the logic is good : it opens only one event.
    So how all sofware doesn't works the same ???
