Allow users to customise the touch bar
In spite of a similar looking request being marked completed, Microsoft has still not provided end users the ability to customise the touch bar. This is standard functionality in most modern Mac applications and is useful for many different good reasons, particularly for applications as sophisticated as the Microsoft Office suite - there is a lot of scope for customising to one's own workflow.
Please!! Let us customise the touch bar!!

I'll echo others who need customization to allow removing the Send button (next to Esc). It's much too easy to accidentally brush this and send an unfinished email. That's caught me numerous times.
HI, i like the outlook mac Touch Bar but it would help to have a button to 'check for mail'
I need to customize my touch bar in Microsoft Word and Excel but there doesnt seem to be a solution. This is a necessity Microsoft!
R u serious MS.... Google wins with G-Suite every time you ignore these changes... given I have come across 1000’s of Mac users with same problem... you loose... please make apple touchbar customisable or more people will move to G-Suite.
I would like to have a signature button on Touch Bar
The touch bar has at times allowed useful options such as "do not save" when closing a document, but that has disappeared, I know not where. I wish that Microsoft would allow customization of the touch bar
It really, really sucks that Microsoft continues to make mac users suffer. Stop feuding like children. MS has the vastly superior word processing and general business software, while Apply has better hardware. We don't care how you do it, but work it out and give us the best of both worlds. Both monopolies will continue unabated if you do this.
One of my requiremens for the next place I work is the non-use of Outlook. The PMs for this software clearly don't think about the user experience.
It is late 2019 and it seems that its is still not possible to customize the toolbar in Microsoft Office. A much need feature!
We need task management as a flexible taskbar option.

Please enable users to customize the Touch Bar controls.

The issue with the Send button was fixed, but, I rest my hands on the keyboard when reading, and I'm all the time deleting or archiving messages by accident, and, undo does not undo items that I've deleted while viewing a message. Super frustrating!

What is there to review? This should be permitted like how other applications allow for users to customize functions in the touch bar.
There is a very well known problem with Outlook - a user can touch "send" button accidentally when the letter composing not finished yet. The MacBook touchbar customization will help to solve the issue.
Excel will be more powerful with it too - it would be great to get quick shortcuts to the frequent actions and own styles.

I would like to view auto-completion words in the touch bar as an option

customize the Quick Access Toolbar (QAT) and Ribbon.
Please, please add this. I have just switched from a Windows machine to a Mac, and the Outlook client on the Mac is severely lacking. Yes, I know I could run it on a Windows machine, but I have opted for a Mac for other reasons but still rely on the Office suite and Outlook to perform my job. I would love to see some feature parity between the Windows and Mac versions of Outlook as well as the other applications in the suite.

I would love to be able to add a reference button so that I am able to reference my university work by just clicking on the touch bar
this suggestion is available in Windows and very useful in the day to day correspondence
