  1. Remember my latest "paste option".

    Remember my latest "paste option". When I copy & paste things/text into an email, it always uses the "Keep source formatting" and more often than not, I need to change to "Keep Text Only" in a menu.

    When pasting many things, I have to go and change this EVERY time. Suggestion: Please, if it can remember my last choice, life would be easier. (This is also true for Word, Powerpoint, etc).

  5. Allow a user, to make the meeting outlook request, that is sent to another user, a specific color instead of the typical default calendar.

    Allow a user, to send a meeting outlook request with a Color choice of the the senders preference-Like red-and have that color preference transmit to the recipents outlook...with the purpose of it standing out since it is a different color.

  7. Please reduce the size of the templates interface!

    I'd love to use the template function, but currently, it's not usable with long templates.

    Why does it show the name and all of its content?

    There's a reason we give them a name, so my suggestion would be to simply list all of the names like it does for signatures.

    That's currently a workaround btw: Save all your templates as signatures.

    As you can see on the attached screenshot, the template takes up all the space, and I even have to scroll to see the rest. My other templates are below that one, so I have to scroll forever…

  8. cmd +V, cmd - opens paste options menu

    When pasting in ex. text, there is an option to either paste pure text, merge formatting, etc. It would be more convenient to directly after pasting in, without using a mouse be able to open paste menu and chose right option.

  10. I suggest you allow a narrower width split-screen Outlook windows.

    I keep Outlook running in split-screen mode on macOS. The two windows I have open are mail messages and the calendar. This is on my 13" laptop. I'd like to make the Calendar nice and wide and the mail message fairly narrow, maybe a 1/3 2/3 split. As it is, the mail message window won't allow me to set it very narrow. The best I can get is maybe a 40/60 split.

  11. viewing shared sub-contacts folder

    With Outlook for PC, you can create and share a contact folder. You cannot view the other User's sub-folders from Outlook for the Mac. You can only "Open Other User's Folder" and select "Address Book". There is no option to view or select the sub-contact address book.

  12. Unlock address field when using Google email account

    When you setup your email account as Google account you are unable to add an address to a new contacts (address field is locked).

    However to add address to contacts, as a workaround, you can login to the webmail and add/ modify the contact which will then synchronize to Outlook.

    In my opinion this functionality needs to be enabled urgently in Outlook for Mac.

  13. Show relative time in reminders even when they cross into a new day

    Reminders for events that happen at midnight use an absolute time (e.g. "Tomorrow, at 00:00") whereas all other meetings count down with relative times (e.g. "in 15 minutes"). It would be my preference to have it default to the relative time (for example, if it was 23:45, the reminder would show "in 15 minutes") even if it crosses into a new day, or at least have it be configurable to show relative times.

  17. Create "Quick Add" Template Calendar Events

    It would be great to be able to create template events that can quickly be added by a single click or in the right-click menu. For instance, I like to pre-plan my week and fill up time with "focus time" or make sure breaks are scattered in. It seems silly to have to create a new event, change the privacy, category, reminder every single time when I do this ~15 times/week.

  19. Add instagram links to the email signature templates

    Please include instagram icons to the email signature templates. I don't think Google Plus exists anymore so those can be removed.

  20. Saved searches should provide an unread count like Inbox, Sent, etc. folders.

    Saved searches should provide an unread count like Inbox, Sent, etc. folders. This way if you created a special VIP filter, you can tell if you have new unread mail from that person. It could be very useful when you get a ton of e-mail but don't have the time to go through all of them.
