  1. I suggest you create a button to turn off the "What's new for Outlook" popup when I start Outlook.

    This popup slows down startup and any info here should be available in Help resources.

  2. Allow files on shared servers to be linked to in emails.

    In the earlier Outlook, you could click a file, press 'Command' + 'C' and then go into a new email, press 'Command' + 'V' and it would paste a link. Now you have to right click the file, select 'Get Info' and then highlight and copy the 'Server' text, then in the email you have to click 'Hyperlink' and create a link. It takes so much more time and effort!

  3. Remove the huge grey bar when in full screen mode on Outlook

    Remove the huge grey bar at the bottom of Outlook, it only seems to tell me how many items and if I'm connected or not.

    Either make it significantly smaller or get rid of it, it's a waste of good screen real estate.

  5. Automatically clear filter when the last matching message in it is deleted

    I frequently do a filter for many automated messages that I want to clear out of my inbox, such as searching for a JIRA bug number after edits to it resulted in a large series of notifications.

    I would love a preference option that automatically clears the filter after no messages match the filter anymore. Right now it manually requires clearing the filter, even though it's showing an empty list of messages.

    To be clear, suggested workflow would be:
    1) Search for messages, get some results
    2) Move, delete, etc. messages to process them
    3) When the last message is…

  6. capability to switch between screens of same program

    Ability to switch between windows of the same program, for example ability to switch between Excel windows, even while in full screen mode. Its difficult to move between excel sheets while working on multiple spreadsheets

  7. Add a panel to see the calendar while looking at email as you can do on PC

    There are times when reading an email I need to look at my schedule and calendar. Coming from a PC I used it all the time. Please add this to the Mac version!

  10. Support JIRA

    I want a central overview about all my current tasks. For personal tasks I use Outlook. But for development tasks we make heavy use of JIRA (https://www.atlassian.com/software/jira).

    So it would be nice to see my JIRA tasks in Outlook.

  11. Please

    Please restore the feature that lets you select the amount of junk mail filtering you want. Right now it automatically puts mail that you want to get into the junk mail folder and there is not way to control it!

  14. Rules Order

    The Edit Rules window doesn't save the Order of the Rules.
    Every time I open the window it shows the rules in a completely new order.
    Please fix this.
    I'm using the latest version of Outlook for Mac 15.24 (160709) connected to an Exchange server https://outlook.office365.com/EWS/Exchange.asmx .

  17. Print Inbox List

    I'd like the ability to print a list of my Inbox. Appears to be possible in Windows but not for Mac. Please do this for the people who just need to step away from the screen for 10 minutes and see things in paper format.

  19. Can you please add a feature to STOP automatically adding contacts?

    It is really frustrating that my people list continues to be populated by random contact Outlook pulls out of my email. Please create an option to stop this (as is possible with Outlook for Windows).

  20. My calendar is always the first

    I want my calendar was always on the left. 2016 Outlook in the order of display of calendars is assigned depending on whose calendar in the first place. It is not convenient. As a bonus, you can make it possible to move the mouse calendars by specifying the sequence itself, but by default, your calendar should be the first.
