  2. 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.

    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…

  3. 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.

  4. 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

  5. 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

  7. 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.

  9. Calendar events are cancelled for group when declined by a delegate.

    Calendar events actioned by a delegate with several invitees are cancelled for all with the Mac client of Outlook v16.47. This behavior does not occur with web version of Outlook. These are the following conditions when this occurs:

    • Two meetings are already accepted and scheduled for the same time, the third is declined.
    • A meeting with several participants is declined with comments by the delegate, is cancelled for all when no other meetings were in the calendar for this invitee
    • Removing an invitee from an invitation by a delegate cancels that meeting for all participants

  10. Suggestion

    Dear Outlook for Mac,
    The Command + Drag feature that copies an outlook meeting does not execute. The copying starts, but never leaves a copy. It has been like this through several updates.
    Kind regards

  11. Make Hyperlinks in Location Clickable on all Platforms

    Teams, Zoom, GoToMeeting, Grandma's bday wishlist. Whatever it is, we should be able to click on it and have it bounce to the web.

  12. Outlook Stripping Embeded link "Click to join" End up as plain text, when sending calendar invites.

    According to my mailprovider Kerio (GFI) See below:

    As such, a fix for this behavior depends on Microsoft. I suggest submitting a feature request directly with them to have them make the appropriate changes that would allow us to resolve it in Kerio Connect.

    The primary reason for stripping embedded hyperlink content within calendar invitations comes from a limitation imposed by the RFC-5545 standard, which defines Event Descriptions with a Value Type of Text. This does not include Richtext or HTML support within the event description pane, resulting in embedded hyperlinks to be converted to simple text instead. The root

  15. 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.

  16. Bring back the ability to hide certain categories from the Calendar view

    The new outlook removed the ability to hide categories from a calendar. That creates a lot of clutter on calendars.

    Use Cases:
    1. OOTO - I need to be able to hide OOTO invites that co-workers send to my calendar since I don't need to see them all the time.
    2. Optional meetings / events - I categorize optional meetings separately and earlier I used to be able to hide them all in order to get a sense of my weekly commitments. Now there is no way to hide meetings that I am not planning to attend all the time,…

  17. Add a "leave" type of calendar invite

    This new type would be in addition to Out of Office or Free. Helpful to block out own calendar but not others that are invited. Avoids having to add 2 events, also avoids common confusions like blocking out other people's calendars inadvertently.

    New Calender Group exists in Outlook for pc, why not for Mac?
