    Currently, we want to send out OOO calendar invite to team, we have to do the following to not block other's calendar hours.
    1. Set 'Show As' free
    2. Set Reminder as 'None'

  3. Mail currently not "read" until clicking off it and on it again

    When reading a new e-mail, it is not "read" until you've unselected and reselected either one time or multiple times. Please make mails "read" after 30 seconds of highlighting or something similar!

  5. Disable word/phrase suggestions when Autocorrect is turned off.

    I have Autocorrect turned off in both Outlook and Mac preferences and it still wants to suggest "Saturday" or "Thank you," . Distracting and annoying. Will let the Mac people know, too, in case it's on their end.

  6. Allow to add Office 365 Groups into Outlook Favorites

    Allow to add Office 365 Groups into Outlook Favorites. The new Favorites option in Outlook for Mac is awesome. I wish we could add Office 365 Groups to this section.

  7. Allow reordering and aliases of items in favorites

    I'm using the new feature of Favorite folders in Outlook for Mac 2016 v15.36. I think it's great but it's missing two features:
    1. The possibility to change the order of the elements in the favorites folder.
    2. Possibility of assigning a name or alias to show up in the favorites section, without renaming the folder.
    For example, I'd like to have most of my inbox folders in the favorites section, but without the need to say Inbox in each one of them, I'd rather specify an alias.

  8. Make it so that views can be defined per folder. I'd like to have a different view when I view my inbox versus one of the groups.

    I should be able to define a different view for each folder. And that view should "stick" so that Outlook remembers the view settings when I switch away and then back to a folder.

  9. UNITED KINGDOM: County Field for Address

    I'm from the UK and I use Microsoft Exchange in my Outlook For Mac.

    UK addresses have 'County' i.e. Hertfordshire, Cornwall, Essex etc. This is the equivalent of a State in USA.

    In Outlook for Windows, Microsoft Exchange, Apple Contacts, Old versions of Outlook for Mac, Google Contacts etc. this field exists as it's essential.

    Outlook for Mac is the only place not to, so I presume it's an oversight?

  10. Do not let the end parens be including in the link

    When putting a link in parentheses, which is common > (www.google.com), The end parens is included in the link, making the link not useable. You have to write it like this: ( www.google.com ).

    It would be helpful if the end parens did not get included in the link.

  11. Automatically make times PM when the end time of a meeting otherwise doesn't make sense.

    Currently if I have a meeting that starts at 10 and ends at 12 noon, when I enter the 12 (or any time in the afternoon) it gives me an error. Just switch it to PM automatically!

  12. Consider older people's eyes in design

    Software is designed by young people with good eyesight but everyone's eyes get worse as they grow older. I find the new Office 2016 in general to be more difficult to read. Employ older people to review designs before implementation so that the software can be used by everyone.

  14. Bug: In Sierra (10.12.4), Outlook encodes images as application/applefile instead of image/***, so they don't show up in many clients.

    In Mac OS Sierra (10.12.4), Outlook 2011 encodes images as MIME type application/applefile instead of image/***, so they don't show up in many clients (incl iOS). Not sure if problem also exists in 2016?

  15. Tasks (or other items) created from emails should inherit categories by default

    The new 'create item from email by dragging & dropping' feature in Insider fast programme release 15.35 is great, but would be even better if tasks and other items inherited the category of the email they were created from, by default.

    I categorise emails by client, so ideally if an email is category 'Pink', if I create a task from it I also want that task by default to be category 'Pink'.

    Thanks!

  16. Make it slightly faster so that is actually usable?

    Outlook for Mac is painfully slow to use, to the point where I need to consider alternatives.

  17. Drag to re-size images in mail messages

    Currently, you can only drag to resize images in your mail messages when the message window is wider than the image itself. This suggestion is to create parity with the Windows client by allowing users to scroll to an image corner and drag to resize that image when the width of the message window is less than the image width.

  18. Favorite on side bar and message preview lines

    Outlook just had an updated and now I have a favorite tab on the side bar, don't need it so have an option to remove it. Also one of things I liked in Outlook for Windows is the 2 line message preview, it would be great if this feature was available for Mac. Not a fan of reading panel but would like a sneak peak of the email with the two line feature.

  20. move suggested contacts feature

    Hi,
    I noticed recently that there is not a way to easily move Suggested Contacts into my regular Contacts, as is the case in Outlook for PC. It would be great to be able to do this.
