  1. Dark Mode

    I love me some dark/brown mode in iOS apps and Window phone mobile is a lot easier on the eyes at night. Please adding this feature on Outlook. Dear developers, Please considering it....

        • 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.

          • 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…

                              • 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.

                                • Display two timezones on grid

                                  Add support for display of two timezones as per PC version (that is, show, for example, EST and GMT alongside the day view in calendar). This makes collaboration and scheduling so much easier

                                    • Allow setting to view sender's email address

                                      I want to be able to view the sender's email address not just the name. You can toggle this feature in Apple Mail.

                                        • It would be great if the latest office fast insider build didn't keep asking for me to sign in when starting outlook.

                                          Outlook for mac 16.20 (181031) keeps asking me to sign into office 365 whenever I start it.
