Please bring back the categories feature in Outlook for Mac.
It difficult to filter out the information while on the Calendar, Notes, Task or Contacts.
At least give the option to filter by Category on list view and collapse group like in Windows Outlook.
In the newest version of Outlook for MAc I have lost the ability to filter my calendar based on categories. I can see the categories and can even create new calendar items and assign them to a category, but I can VIEW a specific category/color. Why?? Am I missing a setting? I manage a team calendar and events are assigned to a specific person and I use the color/categories for each person. Before I could filter and select to see only the color(s) I wanted a time. I can't even begin to understand why this feature would be removed. Please tell me I am missing something and I CAN actual filter the calendar!
I had a system of email rules to auto-categorize my event invites on my calendar so that I could filter them by type in/out of my calendar view. With the recent upgrade this option has been removed neutralizing my super organized system and making my calendar a jumbled mess of things I need to attend and others that I just need visibility to. I should now have to create a completely separate account within my work org to do something so simple, please bring this option back!

Category in the navigation pane on the left have been removed in latest update. Please put it back. When you go in to "Edit Category" there is a box you can check to include in Navigation Pane, but it does not work! I've spoken with your engineers and they are not sure why Categories were removed from navigation pane :-(. Please fix ASAP
