        • Add "Recall this message" function and support message recalls from Windows clients

          Add "Recall this message" function so that you can recall messages sent in error. Also support message recalls that are sent from Outlook for Windows users - at the moment message recalls just come through as an email but don't automatically remove unread emails like Outlook for Windows does.

                • 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.

                    • Integrate Outlook with Onenote

                      Windows versions of OneNote and Outlook have integrated to allow you to bring in meeting information into OneNote as well as assign tasks that appear in Outlook. Bring that integration to the Mac.

                        • 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.

                                • Drag and Drop email to create new item

                                  On the Windows based version of Outlook you can drag and drop emails to either the calendar, tasks, or contacts to create new items. The subject of the email becomes the calendar or task subject and the body of the email goes in the notes field.

                                  Bring this functionality to the Mac version so that drag and dropping of emails works to other areas of Outlook.

                                  • 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.

                                    • 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
