Provide full operational features between Mac and Windows Client versions of Outlook
Provide full operational features between Mac and Windows Client versions of Outlook. If that is not something you are willing to do then please make the OWA fully functional with all features of the Windows client for exchange servers.
In Outlook for Mac, users need Reviewer or stronger access to view other users calendar. However in other Outlook clients, people granted LimitedDetails access can view other calendar. I want you to enable LimitedDetails access in Outlook for Mac as well.

features such as marking a sender as safe or importing/exporting data, including rules, are in OfficeWin but not OfficeMac. This should have been fixed years ago.
I work at a university and compose a lot of email for student support. To avoid wasting time sending similar chunks of email to different students, I use quick parts. the quick parts function allows me to save an immense amount of time with creating this communication to students. However, this feature is ONLY available on the windows version of outlook and not the mac version. I know that autotext is for the mac, but it appears only for word and I have never been able to see use that feature on outlook. This is an example of many features that are available on windows that is not available on the mac. I prefer using macs and would love if the functionality that is available on the windows version would also be available on macos.
I suggest you create feature parity between the PC and Mac versions of Outlook and save yourself the problem of all this back and forth.
Then we can post feature requests in one Outlook forum. Its unbelievable the time and productivity that is waisted because of this feature disparity.
CxOs use Macs and they moan about this all the time and then Microsoft wonders why they don't get support from top level managers in companies to roll out Modern Workplaces.

Come on....it's 2020. Windows has calendar/tasks pane as a view option but Mac doesn't? Windows has "delayed send" (as a rule, not some busted workaround) but Mac doesn't?! Come on.
If I buy Outlook 2019, the features should be IDENTICAL across Windows and Mac.
Because I have a no choice on what OS I use for work, please support all features from windows client on outlook for mac.
for one: be able to change email type from message to meeting

Opening outlook property of any member in windows version of outlook shows us a Tab "Member Of" where we can find the group membership which is subscribed.
However this feature is not available on OWA or Mac version of outlook.

Please work toward providing full feature parity between the Outlook versions for Windows and Mac. Some features in the Windows version, such as the "Report Spam" button, are not available in the Mac version.
As it is, I would tell most of my non-geek friends to stay away from Outlook. It is unfriendly as ****.
