  12. Preserve the View > Arrange By > Collapse All Groups option so that all groups remain collapsed forever.

    When a user selects a desired View option, i.e. like View > Arrange By > Date Received, then selecting Make This the Default View, those setting preferences are preserved by the application. However, the added Collapse All Groups doesn't seem to stick. I would prefer to ALWAYS have all groups collapsed just as I am expecting when I select that View option. I would rather not have to reselect every time I navigate to a different folder or even when I exit Outlook and relaunch the application later.

  13. Outlook Directory Search

    When using the search function of the Outlook address book (not the general Outlook search) there are no results found when a search is being initiated based upon the last part of a last name.

    Example: When trying to look for a person called Armin van Buuren, it is impossible to find this person when “Buuren” is being used as the search query. It only works when using “van Buuren”.

  15. Similar Folder Structures for Inbox and Archive

    Please allow the duplication of subfolders under "Inbox" to "Archive" so as to Archive one message in the exact same subfolder when clicking "Archive". Thank you!

  16. Let Outlook be controlled by other Mac Apps.

    The macOS operating system allows apps to be controlled by other apps. It would be nice if I could use my GTD app (Things for Mac) to work with Outlook. Providing a back link to an email, e.g.

  18. Event Location Auto-Complete

    I am looking for the Location of Appointments to be auto-completed via the online database, e.g. on Outlook for PC if I type “Eiffel” it will suggest the location as “Eiffel Tower, France”. This is not happening on the Outlook for Mac. Thank you!

  19. Different Color Sets for Dark Mode

    In Calendar, normal mode, “busy” appointments have a blue line, which has a good contrast with the white background. “Free” appointment have a white line, which “blends” with the background. This gives good visual experience on what is really important or what’s in the calendar just for information.
    But when switching to Dark mode, the colours are the same, so a Free event really pops out of the Calendar, as if it was something very important, and a blue Busy event remains in the background.
    Same feedback for the events main background colour: grey in Normal mode, Blue in dark…

  20. Multiple actions per one swipe

    Please allow the addition of an extra action per swipe. For example "Mark as Read" and "Archive" for the same swipe, so as to avoid moving unread e-mails to Archive. Thank you!
