  1. remove google calendar

    When you use a google calendar in Outlook for Mac, you can see all other calendars of colleagues that you have previously seen in google calendar but there is no option to remove them within Outlook so you end up with a massive list of colleagues calendars that it tries to sync unnecessarily

  3. Open Outlook msg file format in Outlook on macOS

    It is critical that Outlook provide complete compatibility across platforms. I frequently receive .msg attachments which do not open with Outlook on macOS, even though they were created by Outlook 2016. This makes the .msg file format less useful, and users are forced to use solutions such as Adobe Acrobat for reliable interoperability.

  6. Retain preferences after updates

    The preferences I've set for Outlook mail are reset every time I perform an update. Specifically (for me, most annoyingly) affecting fonts and auto-correct. Have to reset font size (back to 12pt from 11pt) and auto-correct (do not auto-capitalize TWO INitial CApitals, do not auto-capitalize the first letter of sentences, do not auto-capitalize names of days).

  7. Add a voting function for email in outlook for Mac. This is an efficient tool and enables it to be used as a governance tool in business.

    Voting functions in PC based MS Outlook are common and for an integrated system with multiple devices. As an efficiency tool that increases likelihood of response at is it is an easy and useful tool. However, if it is not available for those in your team who may be using a different Mac platform it becomes useless for all.

  10. "Suggest a time" window needs to be added for Mac (not "Propose a time" )

    "Suggest a time" is not available in Outlook for Mac and it should be added. This is not "propose a time" but rather the PC option that shows you the conflicts and best times for each attendee before you actually schedule the meeting!!!!

  13. Snooze Mail, Send Later, and other features for G Suite Business users.

    It would be great for G Suite Business users to use Outlook's features to it's current features full potential. Our company currently uses G Suite for our mail services but the Snooze Mail and Send Later features aren't enabled. Snooze Mail works great on Outlook's mobile app, but hoping we can use all on all platforms.

  14. Add another sound set other than "Default" on Mac

    On Mac you cannot really do any customization of sounds other than toggle them off or on. There is only the "Default" sound set on the sound set drop-down.

  16. Please allow Calendar to display more than 3 Categories for each calendar event.

    Please allow Calendar to display more than 3 Categories for an event. We use Categories to track customer contacts. Would like to see more than the current maximum of 3 colors in the Category column of Calendar's List view. Why not show the colors of all Categories applied to each event?

  20. Allow for reordering the side bar

    Consider allowing the sidebar to be reordered. Changing the order that multiple accounts are listed it. Also allow smart folders to be moved up;. Thanks!
