  3. Allow smart folders in Favorites

    The new Favorites category in the sidebar is nice, but should also allow Smart Folders to be added as Favorites. I want a few of my smart folders at the top of my sidebar. As do others...there are at least two other feature requests on this page asking to allow the Smart Folders section to be re-ordered higher in the sidebar so they are more easily accessible. Consider adding all those votes up to count for this request, because this request can help solve that problem too.

  4. Customize the Outlook Ribbon so the Send to OneNote button can be hidden.

    Please allow us to hide/unhide the sen to OneNote and other Add-ins buttons so that the ribbon would not be re-arranged because of the space that is taken up by the add-ins icons.

  6. Send to OneNote-for meetings I schedule

    When I open a meeting from someone else, I see the "Send to OneNote" button. (Very nice). It copies all the relevant meeting information to the note and I'm off to the races.

    However, when I open a meeting that I've sent out, the "Send to OneNote" button is no longer there. This is especially troubling because the meetings that I schedule are usually the ones where I need to scribe notes. I don't know if this is a feature or a bug.

  7. Notification Rules/Alerts for Sub Folders.

    It is important to set different notification rules for subfolders to manage the mails efficiently.

    We see the badges, the number of mail received in the subfolder, but doesn’t notify us that a new email arrived.

    There should be an option in the rules whether we want desktop alert or notification for emails that come into that particular subfolder.

  12. Support RSS feeds in Outlook for Mac.

    You really should enable RSS feeds. I'm not sure, but mine seem to work, but recently stopped until I had a PC running update email, then they fed back to my Mac running outlook. A major feature like RSS support should be mirrrored in Mac Outlook. I hardly use PC outlook any more, but if I dont' have RSS feeds, I may have to stop using Mac Outlook and put a VM PC on my Mac just to run Outlook PC. I'm sure that I'm not the only one, as I saw almost a thousand votes for this on another…

  15. Enable ribbon customization in Outlook for Mac.

    Outlook for Mac should be fully featured instead of a limited version. I used to use a PC and loved the outlook interface because I could set it up how I wanted. You can't do that in the mac version and I don't understand why. I don't use it as a result.

  16. Automatically update the date in the Outlook calendar when the device is waked from sleep, without having to switch to the mail module.

    Outlook does not automatically update the calendar date when the device is waked from sleep on the next day. Please implement this.

  18. automatic update - remove (frequent and annoying) prompt to change to automatic install

    When selecting the office update option "automatically check" (as opposed to "manually check" and "automatically download and install"), since a few weeks the user gets a pop-up in the OSX notification centre to turn on the "automatically download and install" option. Every time I choose the option 'not now', then the app Microsoft AutoUpdate is started. First you get another pop-up where you again have to choose 'not now' for the 'automatically download and install" option.
    Most of the time there is no update.

    I choose the "automatically check" option as I want to be notified that an update is…
