  2. ADD ABILITY TO ADD HOLIDAYS TO CALENDAR PLEASE

    Please add the ability to add holidays to the Outlook for Mac calendar. I thought this feature was available in previous versions as I have added them before. Thank you.

  3. End meetings early for Outlook for Mac

    As described on this page, please add the ability to end meetings early for parity on the Windows version of Office 365 the way it's described below.

    Especially during these times of this pandemic, having a built in mechanism to allow for time after meetings to check on family and prepare for next tasks.

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/schedule-a-meeting-with-other-people-5c9877bc-ab91-4a7c-99fb-b0b68d7ea94f

    End meetings early

    If you're using Outlook for Microsoft 365, you can now have Outlook end your meetings a few minutes early. This can help you build in travel time between meetings. You can choose a different duration for meetings under one hour and meetings…

  4. FIX: 2020 Outlook for Mac UI doesn't show coworker's calendars

    I tried the new 2020 Outlook for Mac UI... it looked much better but when I tried to view coworkers calendars I could not see any other contact in my organization. When I set up a meeting, I couldn't even use scheduling assistant to see the invitees time conflicts for that meeting. I had to revert back to the older version because this is showstopper missing functionality.

  5. ISO 8601 standard week number option

    Based on the ISO week number standard (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISOweekdate), the ISO 8601 definition for week 01 is the week with the first Thursday of the Gregorian year (i.e. of January) in it. So I would expect 2021 week 1 to start on January 4, 2021. Instead it shows that 2021 week 1 starts on Dec 28, 2020.

    I believe the Mac version of Outlook needs the option (First week of year: "First 4-day week") that is present in the Windows version, so that we can set it to conform to the ISO definition. https://superuser.com/questions/1246132/wrong-week-number-in-outlook

  7. Please allow "overlay" option to be disabled for more than 3 calendars

    When I have 4 or more calendars checked, it automatically overlays them and I can't disable this function. I want to be able to see all my calendars side-by-side.

  8. Change calendar keyboard shortcut for next/previous (back) to cmd+arrow

    This seems to have been changed since Oct 2020.
    Say I have the weekly view open in calendar, and I want to advance to the next week I have to press CMD+OPTION+RIGHT.
    Previously it was simply CMD+RIGHT
    What's the purpose of changing the shortcut?
    It is used a lot and was easier to press before

  9. Adapt "Show As:" appoinment availability selector for work-from-home or hybrid work arrangement

    The current availability selector for appointments reads as:
    - Free
    - Tentative
    - Busy
    - Out of Office

    I'm currently on a hybrid work-from-home environment, and I want to set myself as "In the office" on certain days.

    "Out of Office" doesn't imply unavailability anymore, as most of my work is not in the office, but at home.

    Thank you.

  11. 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.

  14. Disable reminders for meetings not yet accepted

    Currently, Outlook for Mac shows reminders (set by the inviter) for meetings that I have not yet accepted or simply deleted without opening (i.e., I have not explicitly declined the meeting). I think one should only get reminders for invites that they've responded Yes/Maybe to. All other reminders are unnecessary distractions.

  15. Create a preference so individual dates in Calendar [like birthdays] can have the reminder be set for something other than 18 hours.

    Currently a calendar entry, like a birthday, has a reminder fixed at 18 hours. I want 2 days but without having to change every time I add an entry...just like you could do in the olden days with Entourage!

  16. re-enable looking at multiple months of calendar

    Outlook used to have the ability to look at multiple months of the calendar to the left of the weekly calendar. You can still do that by toggling down on the month, but then it reverts to merely showing only one month the next time you start Outlook. It used to be a very useful feature as one looked for dates.

  17. Improve New Outlook calendar reliability

    In old Outlook I can see all events.
    In New Outlook some events are not displayed and missing on Mac.
    I can see the events when I switch back to old Outlook, and on other devices like Mobile App and even Apple Calendar.
    I want to be able to see all events even in the New Outlook Calendar view. I would guess this is a bug.

  18. Update the calendar user interface so it's clearer what day it is

    Please update the UI to differentiate today and other days. I've been using outlook every day for the past 3 years, and to this day I still freak out every once in a while thinking I'm late for a meeting when it's actually scheduled for a different day. The line and text style at the top isn't enough!

  19. Prevent multiple Meeting invite responses from being sent

    It would be great if Outlook for Mac can detect if the same Meeting Invite Response was sent before and preventing from resend the same (i.e. Accepted, Tentative, Declined) response.
