  4. Stop hiding reminder window when switching to full-screen apps

    In my workplace setup, I use my laptop plus two external monitors. I keep Outlook open in my left-hand monitor, and typically have iTerm2 open full-screen on my right-hand monitor, using iTerm2's feature to split the terminal window to let me have multiple terminals open.

    I try to keep my Outlook reminder window on the same monitor as my main Outlook session. However, whenever I click on my iTerm2 screen and start using that, the reminder window becomes hidden. Unfortunately, this prevents me from seeing reminders when I'm working in my terminal window. If my reminder has anything to do…

  11. HTML Support for Google Calendar

    I was told by support that Google Calendar integration doesn't support HTML in the meeting body.

    I'm requesting support for it.

  13. Option to add SOG-o Based calendar in Outlook

    SOG-o based calendar can't be added independently if not attached to an email account which Outlook supports. Some users have SOG-o based calendar and would not require the entire email functionality, just the calendar features and services.

  14. outlook today

    We can only have 3 calendar folders enabled side by side at one time, we want the possibility for 6 calendar folders side by side at one time. That's better for planning appointments.

  16. Fix ics files so all day event times are correct

    For some reason, the following ical file works for the Windows version, but not Mac. The end date ends up being set to 1/1/1900 at 3:00 am. It works fine with the Apple Mail app and it opens fine through the Mac Calendar app.

  17. Eliminating filtering of categories (after 16.20 they're no longer in sidebar!)

    Rick Song MSFT Replied on January 2, 2019
    Microsoft Agent | Moderator
    "The categories will no longer appear in the sidebar since Outlook for Mac 16.20. The feature to filter categories in the calendar has been removed. As a workaround, please see the categories on each appointment or meeting in the calendar grid."

    WTF? Really? This is absolutely NOT a work-around, Rick.
    It is no longer possible to filter and then print selected categories. This was an essential feature. I cannot for the life of me understand why this would be jettisoned. PLEASE fix this!!!

  18. Checkbox version 16.20 for Mac

    With the new checkboxes in calendar, I can't see at a glance whose calendar I'm viewing (i.e. which checkboxes are checked).
    Also, you can expand everybody's calendar, but that's just distracting if people have only one calendar and adds to the problem of not being able to see which checkbox is checked.

    I'm generally very disappointed with the new design. I think it's both ugly and not user friendly.

  19. Suggest location address, information

    Google's GMail Calendar suggests business names and addresses while the user enters the location of an appointment. It would be useful in Outlook.

  20. Bring back the "show/hide all calendars" feature.

    In 2013 for Mac, we were able to show/hide all calendars at once, then solo a specific calendar to quickly find the information we need. That feature appears not to exist in the 2019 release, making finding calendar information tedious. Either we hide all, or click them on/off one at a time. What a pain!
