Outlook for Mac

Add / Display Holidays

Really, you don't have holidays yet? Every calendar I use has the option to display holidays. Outlook for Mac is the only one that doesn't have this and this is what I use for business. Microsoft really confounds me and many other business people I know. You don't add some obvious features people use and can't be that hard to add.

    Adding International Holidays to the Outlook Calendar for Mac should be a no brainer - why isn't this a feature already? Why is Microsoft so resistant to giving Mac users the same feature and capabilities that Windows users have.

    As a UX designer, I simply can't come up with a rationale for why features are missing from the Mac experience, except to guess that your large team of engineers still haven't figured out how to build and support those features. As many others have stated, "Why is this still a problem, it's 2019!" As designers and engineers, you have a an ethical responsibility to deliver products that don't cause the user discomfort or have to make them think about alternate solutions.

    That is very annoying. Been years and still nothing, is there any point in writing here? Every Calendar has a Holiday feature. Might have to go back to good old Mac Calendar.

    Any update to this? some of these comments are dating back YEARS!
    I can't find any info on how to add this to Outlook in Mac

    I agree to all John said. There is no way I will not have the option to add holidays to my calendar/

  • Ian P commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Why is this possible with MacOS' in-built calendar but not with Outlook for Mac??

  • Y U commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Any official comment? It shouldn't be that sophisticated!

    Global teams NEED this when coordinating calendars. It's tough enough to plan team meetings without having to separately look up holidays for each team member's country / locale. Get on it!

    We pay for Office 365 and for this reason, also Outlook for Macs shall have the possibility to add holidays to the calendar. Please go ahead by integrating this functionality into your commercial product!

    Please enable bidirectional view in outlook 365 for mac (for middle east and some Asian languages), so that we can view it from right to left, also allow alternative calendar like Hijri or Islamic calendar.

    I see there is a clear need for being able to adding more holidays, e.g. Denmark, French, US, etc. currently work in a project in 40 countries.

    For being able to work cross-borders both internally and with client ,for planning and to get a better overview there is a need for having the ability to see multiple calendars.

    Could you please put this feature BACK into Outlook - used to be able to do this in Entourage. In fact used to be able to do lots of stuff in Entourage that has been stripped out of Outlook. SAD

  • Ana commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Very frustrating that PC allows this function but Mac doesn't. Please add this simple but effective feature.
