  1. you should make outlook for linux and you should also make your own linux distro called Windows 10 for linux

    you should make a linux distro called "windows linux"
    it would use a heavily modified KDE desktop made to look like windows 10 and would have wine installed to run windows apps

  7. Respect chosen audio output device

    I use a DAC with my iMac and all other apps respect this audio output, except Outlook. All sounds always comes through internal speakers.

    Please fix to respect the chosen audio output device.

  10. Trello and Evernote integration

    Integrate Trello and Evernote. More specifically:
    1) Trello: sync Trello calendars directly in calendar (Sunrise is one of the few apps that does this)
    2) provide direct access to Trello cards and Evernote directly from each email (similar to CloudMagic).

    I would gladly pay for both of these options.

  13. Perform Sync when Quitting Outlook

    Whenever I quit Outlook, a sync doesn't take place leaving Outlook in a different state than the server is. For example, if I delete several emails and then quit Outlook, these emails are not synched back to the server. If I check email on a different device later, these email still appear in their original folders. This is very annoying to say the least. I would really call this a defect. In fact, i have stopped using Outlook and have gone back to Apple's Mail Program for just this reason.

  15. Need to be able to accept task from other users in Outlook for Mac 2016

    Task sent from my team members are sent to me in an iCal format. There is no way to accept the task (that I know of). Therefore you cannot accept the task. This is frustrating.

  16. Add a Global "Do Not Disturb" Option

    While in meetings, especially when screen sharing, it is important that Outlook remains open, however, we cannot have reminders going off, new mail notifications showing up, etc. Although there is an option to turn off reminders in the main menu, we have to go into settings and turn all the other mail notifications off as well. It would be so helpful and efficient, if we could just turn it all off and on with a single click. No sounds, no reminders, no popups, or overlays. Not having to go through and disable them all separately only for a short time…

  17. Get the the Multi-Lingual Auto-correct back

    I need to send emails in French and in English. Since the new update of Outlook, the auto-correct is not longer multi-lingual and my emails written in French get auto-corrected with French words turned into English words.

    Please get things back to what they used to.

    Thanks

  18. Restrict or manage warnings

    By default, when you join a network that has a limited access to your mail server (e.g. Guest WLAN), you get a prompt for each account or shared calendar asking you if you accept to get redirected. So if you have 100 colleagues, you get 100 warnings / popups. The option to remember our choice never worked even since Entourage, and the only option to get rid of this windows is to click 100 times on OK or Cancel. It would be great to have one single notification in such cases.
    You get crazy when such things happen because of…

  19. restore missing search bar function (highlight to retain)

    In a far older version of Outlook for Mac, when searching for an item in a folder, you could highlight the search term and when you changed search folders, the term was not erased. A minor time saver, but it saved time over time.

  20. Keep calendar attachments visible in the calendar entry (they disappear shortly after opening).

    Once an invitation has been acepted, any attachments in the calendar entry are only visible until Outlook has determined that the invitation was accepted. It looks like this is a bug where the acceptance date/time message is blocking out the attachment line.
