  2. Stop asking me to sign up for the new Outlook

    I have no doubt that the new Outlook will be great, when it supports all email protocols. Until then, please stop flashing up a notice that I must manually clear asking me to try the new version.

    Please also remove the button at the top of the interface inviting me to switch versions. When the new version is actually ready for use, I'll be happy to switch to it.

    Since I did not sign up to try Beta versions of your software, I do not want to be regularly reminded to do so.

    Thanks.

  3. Please try to add attachments to the original email in the responding messages.

    Folks send me email with attachments, however, these attachments get buried and potentially lost to "untrained eyes" if they do not know to revert back to the original message. Consider adding attachments to the email chain. That way if I send a message containing attachments to 3 people and people do respond, others can still see the original attachments.

  4. Allow us to Customize the RIBBON and Quick Access Toolbar

    Reorganize your ribbon so that functions are grouped together, OR better yet, allow users to customize their ribbons and quick access toolbars for their own needs as users on a Windows platform can!

  5. Please allow "overlay" option to be disabled for more than 3 calendars

    When I have 4 or more calendars checked, it automatically overlays them and I can't disable this function. I want to be able to see all my calendars side-by-side.

  6. Change calendar keyboard shortcut for next/previous (back) to cmd+arrow

    This seems to have been changed since Oct 2020.
    Say I have the weekly view open in calendar, and I want to advance to the next week I have to press CMD+OPTION+RIGHT.
    Previously it was simply CMD+RIGHT
    What's the purpose of changing the shortcut?
    It is used a lot and was easier to press before

  7. Adapt "Show As:" appoinment availability selector for work-from-home or hybrid work arrangement

    The current availability selector for appointments reads as:
    - Free
    - Tentative
    - Busy
    - Out of Office

    I'm currently on a hybrid work-from-home environment, and I want to set myself as "In the office" on certain days.

    "Out of Office" doesn't imply unavailability anymore, as most of my work is not in the office, but at home.

    Thank you.

  8. Stop turning outlook app into an internet web page

    I would like the Outlook app to be independent of web/internet pages. I hate it when an email link stays in my outlook screen and only possible options are to select to open web link into your web browser or second option is click back in order to return to outlook. FREAKING ANNOYING!!!!

  11. Please bring back the categories feature in Outlook for Mac.

    It difficult to filter out the information while on the Calendar, Notes, Task or Contacts.

    At least give the option to filter by Category on list view and collapse group like in Windows Outlook.

  12. re-enable looking at multiple months of calendar

    Outlook used to have the ability to look at multiple months of the calendar to the left of the weekly calendar. You can still do that by toggling down on the month, but then it reverts to merely showing only one month the next time you start Outlook. It used to be a very useful feature as one looked for dates.

  13. Update badge icon without opening outlook application

    Before the newest Outlook update the badge icon would update to tell me how many emails I had waiting without having to have the application actively open on my computer screen. With the new update this no longer happens. The only way the badge icon updates is once you open the application.

    I liked before having the notification on my desktop to tell me I had emails waiting. The same way it works on my phone to tell me I have a notification.

  14. Build a connection between Sharepoint and Outlook.

    We use Sharepoint as our document storage. When I create an email in Outlook I am unable to attach a document from a Sharepoint folder.
    Likewise, when receiving a document (ex PDF) I cannot save it to the correct document folder. Which means that I have a temp storage on my Mac where I save a document before attaching it to an email or saving it to a folder.
    The problem is the same whether I use the online Outlook version or the application on my Mac.

    I can open an office attachment and then save it to an online…

  15. Allow users to turn OFF "Select Entire Word"

    I often need to precisely select and copy text out of emails, but unlike MS Word, there does not appear to be an option in Outlook to turn off the "Select Entire Word" functionality. As a result, I have to copy chunks of text from Outlook, paste them into a text editing application and then select exactly the characters I need, or I'm forced to spend extra time deleting the extra characters from whatever application I have pasted them in. This is extremely frustrating behavior for some of us and shouldn't be forced on the users with no option to…

  17. Calendar events are cancelled for group when declined by a delegate.

    Calendar events actioned by a delegate with several invitees are cancelled for all with the Mac client of Outlook v16.47. This behavior does not occur with web version of Outlook. These are the following conditions when this occurs:

    • Two meetings are already accepted and scheduled for the same time, the third is declined.
    • A meeting with several participants is declined with comments by the delegate, is cancelled for all when no other meetings were in the calendar for this invitee
    • Removing an invitee from an invitation by a delegate cancels that meeting for all participants

  18. Suggestion

    Dear Outlook for Mac,
    The Command + Drag feature that copies an outlook meeting does not execute. The copying starts, but never leaves a copy. It has been like this through several updates.
    Kind regards
    Caspar
