  2. Print calendar in dark mode with black type

    Currently when printing a calendar in dark mode, the type is reversed and doesn't appear on the print. Please correct so that printing in dark mode provides a color print out but with black type on white (or color).

  3. Automatically update the date in the Outlook calendar when the device is waked from sleep, without having to switch to the mail module.

    Outlook does not automatically update the calendar date when the device is waked from sleep on the next day. Please implement this.

  4. Remove Event Summary

    Please remove or give option to turn off event summary in email preview pane and email pane. It is not helpful, but rather a hinderance as you cannot not read email well.

  5. automatic update - remove (frequent and annoying) prompt to change to automatic install

    When selecting the office update option "automatically check" (as opposed to "manually check" and "automatically download and install"), since a few weeks the user gets a pop-up in the OSX notification centre to turn on the "automatically download and install" option. Every time I choose the option 'not now', then the app Microsoft AutoUpdate is started. First you get another pop-up where you again have to choose 'not now' for the 'automatically download and install" option.
    Most of the time there is no update.

    I choose the "automatically check" option as I want to be notified that an update is…

  6. Allow me to set a meeting subject specific to my calendar

    When I receive a meeting invite, the meeting originator does not always choose a subject that is easy to understand at a quick glance. I'd like to be able to set a meeting subject that only affects my view of the meeting. For example, a co-worker may invite me to a meeting with the subject "Call"; I'd like to change that on my calendar to be "Call with John regarding user interface error" and that change is only represented on my calendar (it doesn't affect my co-worker's invitation). Any updates that my co-worker sends to the meeting should keep the…

  10. Sign Druide Antidote connector for Outlook for Mac

    We use a 3rd party spelling checker supplied by Druide Informatique with Outlook for Mac called Antidote. Since we moved to macOS 10.14 Mojave, this spelling checker does not work with Outlook. It does work however for Word among other Microsoft applications. Our understanding is that with Mojave, Apple introduced security features that prevent communication between Outlook and Antidote. We see two options: (1) Microsoft “signs” the Antidote connector for Outlook, or (b) Microsoft publishes a new API to be consumed by third parties such as Druide. Would Microsoft consider these options?

  11. Add a mouseover event that displays the 'full Sent To email address"

    I have several email addresses configured in my Outlook. Currently the only way I can find out which address a specific message was sent to is by viewing the message source and finding the sent to address in the message headers. This is idiotic, when it would be so easy to add a "mouse over event" to the Contact Object that is in the message view. Currently there isn't a way to view the the sent to address easily, and when viewing the contact, it shows you all the addresses in the contact and not just the one this message…

  13. Icons version 16.20 for Mac

    The new icons are very very very ugly. That pure white over light gray is unappealing and they are all so similar that I need a few seconds of thinking and reading what they are before I can press them.

    PS: How sneaky is it that I have to agree to be bombarded with stuff to submit my feedback?

  16. Cmd+Option+Shift+V should paste as plain text - macOS wide standard

    Please respect the macOS-wide standard for pasting so Cmd+Option+Shift+V pastes as plain text.

    This wastes crucial time having to reach for the mouse and choose "Keep Text Only" every single time...

  19. Give the ability to turn of notifications for delegate mailboxes

    Please give the ability to turn off notifications for specific mailboxes, or delegates. I am currently receiving notifications for a delegate mailbox that gets one about every 30 seconds, its incredibly annoying and I can only turn off all notifications or none of them, so if I turn them off I would have to have them turned off for my mail e-mail box. This is not helpful at all! You should be able to mute notifications per account that is delegated.
    Thanks
