  4. Add Outlook to Share Menu (Extensions)

    Have Outlook 2016 added to the Share Menu (under Extensions) in System Preferences. It's easier to have applications share anything to Microsoft Outlook. Example the Photos app.

  6. Add / Display Holidays

    Really, you don't have holidays yet? Every calendar I use has the option to display holidays. Outlook for Mac is the only one that doesn't have this and this is what I use for business. Microsoft really confounds me and many other business people I know. You don't add some obvious features people use and can't be that hard to add.

  7. Ability to import and export contacts

    Please add the ability to import and export contacts in Outlook for Mac. It'd be great if the formats that one could import and export contacts to were the same as the options on Outlook on Windows. This would make it easy to transition back and forth, particularly for folks who are switching platforms for work.

  11. Customize the ribbon

    The ribbon can be customised in Word, but not in Outlook. For instance, the placement of addin could be chosen (e.g. webex, which is working fine, by the way), or the very bad placement of the "send and receive" is dramatic

  12. Make search look and work like it does for Windows

    The search function for the Windows version of Outlook is fast, easy to use, and in a convienient location. The version for Mac is in the upper right corner, not easy to quickly select search options, and overall is not as easy to use.

    Move the search box to the same location on the Mac client and allow for quick drop downs on what to search for. Overall make search on the Mac just as fast and easy to use as the Windows version

  13. Don't auto-delete meeting requests!

    Don't auto delete meeting requests! Sometimes they contain useful information in the body of the message that is hard to see once the meeting has been put on the calendar. I can customize this setting in Outlook for Windows. Why leave it out for Outlook for Mac?

  14. Add back the option of coloring column view text by Category

    The old Outlook 2011 Categories would change the color of the text in the column view of a message or note, meaning that colors of an important category of email/note/task could stand out to the eye quickly. Now for messages, there is only a small bar or dot, and you can't even tell a note or task is categorized without selecting that note, or unchecking other categories in the sidebar. It would be very nice to see the category breakdown of a list of things at a glance, like I used to be able to.
    Please add back an option…

  15. 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…

  17. Please bring back the categories feature in Outlook for Mac.

    It difficult to filter out the information while on the Calendar, Notes, Task or Contacts.

    At least give the option to filter by Category on list view and collapse group like in Windows Outlook.

  18. I suggest you add CalDav support to Outlook for Mac.

    Corporate mail server is CalDave - whether we like it or not. Want to integrate in Outlook rather than using iCal!

  19. Support email alias

    Please add the ability to add an email alias (or aliases) into the account settings especially Gmail. I have been very impressed with this implementation in you Outlook for iOS App.

    I have a domain with Gmail and forward to my main Gmail account, but can't seem to get this to work with Outlook for Mac 2016.

    Thanks!
