  1. Complete List View of Calendar Items

    In Windows version it is possible to see the complete list of calendar items in list view. In Mac version, this list view is only available by day, week, or month. Complete list of calendar items is useful to see recurrent items, clean old or future items, sort, filter, etc.

  4. Add Rich Text Formatting to Calendar Invites

    One of the features that I miss from the days I was able to use Outlook on Windows is the ability to format the text of Calendar invites, whether appointments or meetings.

    It would be great to have the same ability to control the font, font size, bold, italic, underline, colors, bulleting, numbering, etc., through a toolbar that you do when creating new e-mail messages.

  5. Speed up meeting invite creates

    When a user is creating a meeting invite, I suggest you cache the schedules of the people on the invite list while I am creating the invite rather than make me sit and wait unitl I click on the "Scheduling Assistance" tab (which I need to do every time I create a meeting).

  7. Add additional e-mail recipients to Calendar Response

    When using the "Respond with Comments" option to accept or decline a meeting, I am requesting the ability to add additional e-mail recipients to the response email. It is common to want to notify people other than the meeting organizer of the specific calendar response.

  8. New time proposed: Link to adjust time in email

    When I receive a new time proposed for a calendar event I have to manually go find that calendar event to accept the new time proposed. This should be accessible through the email interface so I can accept or reject the new time proposed.

  10. I suggest you, expand the alarm options for the calender to include travel time and a second alert

    To be able to set a better warning when an appointment is coming up, for example 1 day before and 15 min before I need to travel

  13. View Private Events on Other People's Calendar

    When creating a Private event where I have invited others to or when viewing other people's calendar, I cannot see private events on their calendar. I can go into Outlook online and see the events in their calendars but not on the desktop.

  15. Enable option to print a calendar month without weekends

    I often print out my calendar a month per page to plan future work. The weekends take up valuable space on the page and are of no use to me. It'd be great to be able to print a month to view without including weekends (or at the very least shrinking weekends down).

  16. Allow sorting of calendar entries by size

    If you need to clear space on your calendar, having the ability to sort calendar entries by size becomes very helpful. This feature exists in Outlook for Windows and it would be nice to see this in Outlook for Mac for the sake of feature parity.

  17. Automate outlook account creation based on AD account

    Outlook for Windows can automatically create an account in Outlook if the user account in Windows is an AD account. It would be great if Outlook for Mac could have similar functionality for Macs if it detects that the Mac is AD bound with an Exchange account. This would bring feature parity to Outlook for Mac.

  20. Highlight date, time and select "Add to calendar" option in right click context menu

    When you receive an email with a date and time you often have to add this to your calendar e.g. "Hey, let's meet at 5pm on Wednesday 3rd at Alvinos".

    It would be great if you could highlight a date, time, and place and then right click and select a "add to calendar" option in the context menu.
