  1. Speed of loading Emails in Online Archive

    Improve the speed of loading emails in Online Archive. It is extremely slow and takes minutes to load 300-500 emails. At the same time, the windows version has it loaded already when I select any email folder in the Online Archive

  2. Add option to remove Trash folder unread badge count

    The trash folder shows an unread count just like any other folder. I'd like the option to turn the unread count off for the Trash folder, because if I've sent it to the trash, I don't care whether it's unread!

  3. Add add-ins like the Windows version.

    So you can create GoTo Meetings within Outlook, use the Starbucks plugin to invite clients to meetings at a Starbucks, etc...

  7. web site does not support safari

    The web server here (outlook.uservoice.com) does not seem to properly support Safari. When trying to log in to leave comments, clicking in the password entry field always seems to cause it to go to "Create a password." In Chrome, it properly allows the selection and entry of the password text.

  9. Your new system

    Please go back to the other system. This is not an improvement, it is annoying in the extreme. I don't use the computer for much more than email and a bit of surfing and occasional research. The way you have my email is horrible. It takes forever to find anything, and I feel as if I have no control of my own email. This is not helpful Please give me back what I had before.

  11. Schedule Me Link

    Add the functionality to create and share a "schedule me link" where a recipient could view open blocks on your calendar and choose an open time. I've been using 3rd party add-ins for this but it seems like it should just become part of the funtionality of Outlook at this point.

  12. Figure out how to insure the windows come back up on the right screens when there are multiple screens.

    When Outlook for Mac restarts or starts back up (such as after a shutdown/reboot) my calendar window comes back up on the right screen in its original location and size but the email window comes up on a different screen.

  13. Outlook for Mac v15.24 should follow MacOS Dvorak-Qwerty keyboard settings

    I use MacOS El Capitan v10.11.6 (15G31) with the Dvorak-Qwerty keyboard layout. This setting follows Dvorak keyboard layout, with the exception of the Command+Key, which follows the Qwerty layout. This allows some Command+ functions (e.g., copy, paste) to use Qwerty position on keyboard rather than the Dvorak position.

    I have found that Outlook v15.24 (160709) does not follow the Dvorak-Qwerty keyboard. For example, when I press Command+v (Paste) I get the Command+k shortcut (Insert Hyperlink) - which would be correct for purely Dvorak layout, but NOT for Dvorak-Qwerty layout. This error occurs with emails, appointments and meetings.

  15. New Outlook for Mac 2016 the message resend now appears as a forwarded message. I liked it the way it was. Appeared as original.

    New Outlook for Mac 2016 resend message now looks like a forwarded message. Please go back to the 2011 version with the resend message appearing exactly the same as the original. Thanks.

  16. Allow Reminders to be tied to a single desktop, rather than showing up on every desktop.

    Currently, the Reminders window is displayed on every desktop. There should be an option to pin the Reminders window to a single desktop as I can with the main Outlook window. This was the old behavior of Outlook 2011.
