  1. Dark Mode

    I love me some dark/brown mode in iOS apps and Window phone mobile is a lot easier on the eyes at night. Please adding this feature on Outlook. Dear developers, Please considering it....

  2. Fix frequent calendar hangs

    EVERY operation in the calendar (receive invitation, accept/decline invitation, save appointment, open appointment, appointment reminders, etc.) triggers a 15-20 second hang for the whole Outlook application. This is unacceptable for a platform I need to use all day every day!

  3. Outlook web app 0365 and Outlook 0365 for Mac OSX Calendar overlay issue

    The Outlook Web App Microsoft 0365 and Outlook client 0365 for Mac OSX won't allow me to overlay more then 3 shared calendars at a time, but in Microsoft Windows 10 using the same version of the Outlook client 0365 allows me though. Also, for some reason some of the calendar data from another shared calendar ended up in another persons shared calendar via the Outlook Web App not sure why either. If you can possible patch or create a fix to resolve this issue that would very much appreciated as this is not allowing our end-users using multiple shared…

  5. Allow setting multiple time zones in Outlook

    Working with teams in multiple geos requires setting up meetings across time zones. It would be much easier to set up cross-geo meetings if several time zones could be viewed at once in the calendar, to see if the time slot is reasonable for all attendees. Outlook on PC allows this.

    Support for Google Calendars is now fully available as of 16.13.513+ builds of Outlook for Mac. Note that this requires Office 365 subscription and re-adding your Google account again via Tools > Accounts (existing IMAP accounts are left as-is).

    Please contact us using Help > Contact Support if you have any questions or issues.

  7. Overall Application Font Size

    While there's the ability to increase the font size of email messages, the Outlook application interface itself does not allow for an increase in font size of all the various UI elements. I'm on a retina screen and it's hard for me to see, to the point where I've had to lower the resolution on my monitor. Would be amazing to have the UI customizable to allow for increased font sizes. For now the squinting shall continue!

  8. Display two timezones on grid

    Add support for display of two timezones as per PC version (that is, show, for example, EST and GMT alongside the day view in calendar). This makes collaboration and scheduling so much easier

  10. Show time zones in meeting requests

    When creating a new meeting request, it should show the time zone of meeting time-- or let you pick from a list.

  11. Propose new meeting time

    Propose new meeting time

    Currently, you are not able to respond to a meeting invite and propose a new time. Very inefficient to have to respond to the meeting as an email and then have the owner resend the invite when you can simply propose a new time.

  13. Select email signature for meeting request or appointment

    Please provide the same functionality in Outlook for Mac

  14. Allow us to turn off calendar notifications only

    I have a different calendar app that I use primarily. It also has Mac desktop notifications. I would like to keep my Outlook email notifications popping up, but I would prefer to shut off the Outlook calendar notifications. It currently seems like it's all or nothing if I want to shut the desktop notifications.

  15. Make the view of shared calendars side-by-side

    When viewing multiple, shared calendars, the current feature overlaps the various calendars within one column. This irregular presentation makes it difficult to see free/busy information. The PC version creates separate columns, side-by-side, for each shared calendar. The PC implementation would be better for viewing and understanding each participant's availability for meeting coordination.

  16. Please add multiple time-zone support to Outlook on the Mac.

    In the Windows version of Outlook, I can display two timezones on the left of the calendar. This feature appears to be missing from Outlook on the Mac.

  17. Need to show a second timezone in the Mac version. This feature in the Windows version of Outlook is very helpful for teams with people

    I need to show a second time zone in the Apple Mac version of Outlook calendar. This feature in the Windows version of Outlook is very helpful for teams with people in multiple time zones. It greatly reduces errors in scheduling for global teams. Without it, I'll likely go back to the Apple Calendar.
