outlook.com calendar and contacts synchronization Outlook for mac 2016
Currently Outlook.com Calendars and Contacts are not available when using the Outlook for Mac client. Please develop full Outlook.com mailbox and features support within the Outlook for Mac client.
The current UI design in "Outlook for Mac" is confusing. On the menu you can see a big "Send & Receive" button which you would think that it's for "forcefully synchronize your email"... However, that's NOT the case. With our current corporate setup, sometimes I don't get any emails for more than 12+ hours, then suddenly I got 20+ emails all at once. I just realized that I have to "manually" right mouse click on the "Inbox" then pick "Synchronize now" (and to clear cache) to force my new emails to download. This is really bad user experience and that's why more and more people move to Google G-Suite (Gmail) instead of staying with Outlook... Gmail is just way easier to use than Outlook
SHAMO Microsoft. First of all, we should NOT even be having this conversation. Since when doesn't (or can't or WON'T) does the biggest software company in the world NOT have the capability.
Second, most had NO CHOICE to throw their retail CD "Office for MAC" in the garbage and buy into the "All Knowing" Office 365, then install it on our MACs.
The fact that contracts, calendars and email addresses can NOT sync with it's host operating system (our desktops) is a service that was stolen by Microsoft, after forcing the world to get their new Office 365.
SHAME on you, Microsoft. B****S***t.
Just terrible Microsoft. Get your *** in gear already. I wish Blackberry made desktop apps so I could bin Outlook permanently and never have to deal with this nonsense again.

Please allow Outlook for Mac 2016 to import from and synchronizing with iCal as well as Contacts. This is long overdue!
I like using outlook on my macbook pro but cannot sync my contacts or calendars with gmail yet it is available on the windows version of outlook.
I feel like a second classs citizen. Please enhance this software for mac.

Please add this. It is unbelievable that 2 Microsoft systems do not work together!

not being able to access calendar or contacts renders this software pretty useless. And not really worth the monthly spend. Made even worse as the account i'm trying to sync is the microsoft one i was made to create!!!
