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.

        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

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

        Put in a provision for adding official/federal holidays to the calendar so I don't have to add them manually, which is a stupid waste of time and the reason I'm probably going to just use Google instead.

        Please add the very basic capability to add Holidays into calendar for MAC. Its elementary!

        It is very inconvenient that for office calendar there is no option to download country's holidays.

        Why do you constantly and purposefully make the Mac version of the Office suite less functional than the PC version? Dozens of examples over the years. The most recent point of frustration is the inability to add holidays to the Outlook calendar, unless I enter them manually. There is no reason not to have this functionality as it is a simple function. If you can create complex programs, surely you can add holidays to a calendar. Just more evidence that Microsoft likes an uneven playing field. Do the right thing and serve all of your customers in the same manner.

        Seriously can't believe that the ability to add a holiday calendar to office 365 for mac users doesn't already exist. How hard could it be?

        I've moved to the UK, and would like to know when their stat holidays are in my calendar. This should already be a thing.

        give macbook users of outlook/office365 the possibility of adding different region holidays, same with outlook for windows.
