  1. Improve whole-screen view, so I can see my inbox and calendar as separate screens and toggle between them using command-tab.

    I'd like to be able to command-tab between full-screen windows in outlook, using my inbox and calendar as separate windows.

    (Making sure the calendar defaulted to the most recently used date instead of today would also help.

  3. Email template for OOO Calendar invite

    Currently, we want to send out OOO calendar invite to team, we have to do the following to not block other's calendar hours.
    1. Set 'Show As' free
    2. Set Reminder as 'None'
    3. Deselect 'Request Response'

    If we miss to do the above anytime, then the whole team (who has accepted the invite) is shown as OOO.

  4. Automatically make times PM when the end time of a meeting otherwise doesn't make sense.

    Currently if I have a meeting that starts at 10 and ends at 12 noon, when I enter the 12 (or any time in the afternoon) it gives me an error. Just switch it to PM automatically!

  5. Turn off auto-UTC for IOS Events

    Events created in any of my IOS devices, synced through an Exchange server, appear in the calendar correctly, but when opening, the times are in UTC. Very confusing. Outlook for the PC doesn’t do this. Please make Outlook for the Mac work like Outlook for the PC

  6. Show consistent format when displaying total appointment time

    When you click a calendar appointment in Outlook, it displays a popup showing some basic details of the calendar appointment, one of which is the total time for that appointment.

    When the total time for an appointment is whole hours or half hours, it shows the total time in hours and decimals of an hour, e.g. 1.5hrs, 2hrs, 2.5hrs etc.

    However, if the total time of the appointment is 15mins beyond a whole hour or 15 mins before a whole hour, Outlook displays the total appointment time as the total number of minutes, not as hours and decimals of an…

  7. Repeating calendar events and work days.

    Repeating calendar events and work days. With the online version (possibly the desktop as well), when specifying a repeating event for "every workday" it repeats an event across the same workdays listed under the personalization settings.

    However, it adds a little extra bit of "Microsoft Magic" too. If your workdays are Monday through Friday and you adopt this under personalization settings to support only seeing your repeating workday events M-F and NOT Sat/Sun, after you save, it (go figure?) only shows you M-F, which kind of blows if you're in an industry where weekend work pops up all the time.

  9. Option to show week view start on the current day instead of Sunday/Monday

    Option to show calendar week view start on the current day instead of Sunday/Monday--useless for scheduling purposes to have most of the screen taken up my days that have already happened.

  13. highlight declined meetings in grid-view

    It would be very helpful if one could see in the Calendar Grid-View if any obligatory meeting participants declined . Currently I need to open each meeting individually.

  17. Textual change of error in Dutch date.

    In the Dutch translation, in Outlook, when you click on an calendar item, the date falsely has a % sign at the end. Could that be removed, please? Thank you kindly in advance.

  20. Add a one click Accept (and decline) button (s)

    The accept button on Outlook for Mac is awkward when 99% of the time most users will click the accept button on an appointment.

    Please make Accept the default action with a drop down for the other options and the same for the decline button.
