  6. BIG ISSUE FOUND The Reading panel keeps showing the email already dragged into a folder but the selected email is the one which was below

    If you drag an email from inbox into a certain folder the panel view keeps showing you the email you dragged already but the one which appears selected is the email which was below.
    This brings you into a confusion because you think you are reading the email selected and in addition if you click in the selected email the reading panel keeps showing you the email you dragged into the other folder.
    The only way to solve this issue at the moment is selecting any other email of the inbox and then selecting again the email which was below…

  7. Provide Touch Bar customisation.

    Outlook build 170304 adds touch bar support for new MacBook Pros - but the location of SEND right next to ESC is dangerous. Please allow us to customise the touch bar (as you can for Apple Mail and other Apple apps) so that it can be removed or moved to a safer place. I'm fed up sending half-finished mails when my finger accidentally brushes the touch bar.

  9. Fix the signatures

    I suggest you fix the signature feature.

    When I select my default signature, instead of my default reply signature, some of the email I've spent time creating usually gets erased. I've resorted to copying the entire email i've drafted before utilizing a change in the signature, so I don't loose the text.

  10. Fix many issues with latest version

    Fix many issues with latest update:
    - Search gets corrupted, need to uninstall, re-install account to force re-indexing
    - When transferring, FROM and TO have disappeared
    - When hitting a key to search alphabetically in the email list, nothing happens
    - Recommend a Dark Mode Switch; not taking for granted that I want Outlook in Dark Mode because my session is

  15. Allow setting multiple time zones in Outlook

    Working with teams in multiple geos requires setting up meetings across time zones. It would be much easier to set up cross-geo meetings if several time zones could be viewed at once in the calendar, to see if the time slot is reasonable for all attendees. Outlook on PC allows this.

  19. Return 'edit message' in mac outlook 2016

    I upgraded to the newest version of mac outlook 2016 (15.21) and it removed one of my most used features, 'edit message'. I used many times a day to put in notes and adjust the subject line.

    Please put this feature back!!! please :)

    Update: Edit message is back! It is now available in the latest version of Mac Outlook (15.23). Please see here for details – https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3165798

    Thanks for all the feedback! We had removed the ‘edit message’ feature due to what we perceived as low usage, but your feedback indicates it’s worth keeping. Therefore, we are planning to reinstate this feature soon in Outlook 2016 for Mac. Thanks for your support.

    Support for Google Calendars is now fully available as of 16.13.513+ builds of Outlook for Mac. Note that this requires Office 365 subscription and re-adding your Google account again via Tools > Accounts (existing IMAP accounts are left as-is).
