  1. CryptoTokenKit (CTK) support for digital signing and encryption.

    Apple has began depreciating older token.d frameworks for CryptoTokenKit with the release of macOS Mojave. At present, Outlook can see the certificates. However after you select them, the changes do not save and returning back to the accounts page shows the digital signing, encryption, and authentication back to "none selected"

  3. Support RSS feeds in Outlook for Mac.

    You really should enable RSS feeds. I'm not sure, but mine seem to work, but recently stopped until I had a PC running update email, then they fed back to my Mac running outlook. A major feature like RSS support should be mirrrored in Mac Outlook. I hardly use PC outlook any more, but if I dont' have RSS feeds, I may have to stop using Mac Outlook and put a VM PC on my Mac just to run Outlook PC. I'm sure that I'm not the only one, as I saw almost a thousand votes for this on another…

  5. Mail Drop Option in sending attachment

    It could be best to have a Mail Drop option wherein if the attachment is more than the file limit or even less, it would allow the user to have the option to send it as a shareable link rather than the actual attachment. This feature is currently available in Mail app / iCloud.

  6. Fix search indexing so that search works properly

    Outlook search for Mac is inconsistent and I constantly have to run the Outlook Search repair tool which has since broken from the last fast ring build.

  7. 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…

  10. Allow smart folders in Favorites

    The new Favorites category in the sidebar is nice, but should also allow Smart Folders to be added as Favorites. I want a few of my smart folders at the top of my sidebar. As do others...there are at least two other feature requests on this page asking to allow the Smart Folders section to be re-ordered higher in the sidebar so they are more easily accessible. Consider adding all those votes up to count for this request, because this request can help solve that problem too.

  12. Synchronized Signatures from Office 365

    Since the inception of Exchange and Outlook; we have found that it would be particularly useful to have our signatures synchronized across workstations; now that Office 365 is cloud based we would find it even more useful to use that as the springboard to our Outlook client installations. Currently, Office 365 allows you to create signatures that be composed of tables and graphics and the way we want our signature to look, looks very well, but we can't replicate that in Outlook and we prefer to use Outlook client for certain things, it is after all a feature rich client...…

  16. Look into the flickering screen issue associated with Outlook and iMac 2015

    There is an issue that others seem to be having when using Outlook on a late 2015 iMac. We have 3 employees at my company with late 2015 Retina 5K iMacs (27", 3.2GHz Intel Core i5 Processor and 8GB 1867 MHz DDR3 Memory) whose screens will flicker and turn white/black, but when they restart it fixes the issue for a day. Then it happens again. It seems to happen when Outlook is open, which we are constantly using, and from another forum, it seems to be happening to many other people with this same exact model iMac and Outlook. Apple…

  19. Add a view that allows pages to be nested under the sections they were created within, in the OneNote application.

    Add views that allow pages to be nested under the sections they were created within, in the OneNote application. The aim of this to slim down the side panel to see more content without resizing for smaller screens. Alternatively, tab the sections across the top (under the ribbon), and then leave the page navigation to be on the left or right side of the window (optional) for each tab (section) above.
    View/layout options are too limited.
