  2. 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!

  5. 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.

  6. 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!

  9. 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 .

  12. 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.

  13. Make it possible to print monthly calendar in a text-only/agenda format

  14. 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).

  15. 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.

  16. meeting rooms

    Earlier in the calendar (shared calendars) was organized convenient formatting between people and rooms. For example, in Outlook 2013 it is very conveniently implemented, I can see the calendars of people, and separately see the room. For planning more than fine.
    Now in the 2016 version of this is not, I have space and people in one place, and lots of them. It's not terribly convenient.

  18. Place caret at start of email

    When creating a new email with a signature, the caret is placed at the first line containing text - should be the start of the email.

  19. Please bring back the ability to CUSTOMISE 'Arrange By' in the Inbox, according to more than one criteria.

    In the previous version you could customise the view in the Inbox under 'Arrange By' according to more than one criteria, which was very handy. I used it to group 'from' together (the sender's e-mails), as well as 'date received'. In that way all the sender's e-mails jump to the top if you receive a new e-mail from him/her. Was very disappointed and frustrated when it fell away in the new version.

  20. Speed of loading Emails in Online Archive

    Improve the speed of loading emails in Online Archive. It is extremely slow and takes minutes to load 300-500 emails. At the same time, the windows version has it loaded already when I select any email folder in the Online Archive
