  1. Sign Druide Antidote connector for Outlook for Mac

    We use a 3rd party spelling checker supplied by Druide Informatique with Outlook for Mac called Antidote. Since we moved to macOS 10.14 Mojave, this spelling checker does not work with Outlook. It does work however for Word among other Microsoft applications. Our understanding is that with Mojave, Apple introduced security features that prevent communication between Outlook and Antidote. We see two options: (1) Microsoft “signs” the Antidote connector for Outlook, or (b) Microsoft publishes a new API to be consumed by third parties such as Druide. Would Microsoft consider these options?

  2. Add a mouseover event that displays the 'full Sent To email address"

    I have several email addresses configured in my Outlook. Currently the only way I can find out which address a specific message was sent to is by viewing the message source and finding the sent to address in the message headers. This is idiotic, when it would be so easy to add a "mouse over event" to the Contact Object that is in the message view. Currently there isn't a way to view the the sent to address easily, and when viewing the contact, it shows you all the addresses in the contact and not just the one this message…

  3. Icons version 16.20 for Mac

    The new icons are very very very ugly. That pure white over light gray is unappealing and they are all so similar that I need a few seconds of thinking and reading what they are before I can press them.

    PS: How sneaky is it that I have to agree to be bombarded with stuff to submit my feedback?

  9. Give the ability to turn of notifications for delegate mailboxes

    Please give the ability to turn off notifications for specific mailboxes, or delegates. I am currently receiving notifications for a delegate mailbox that gets one about every 30 seconds, its incredibly annoying and I can only turn off all notifications or none of them, so if I turn them off I would have to have them turned off for my mail e-mail box. This is not helpful at all! You should be able to mute notifications per account that is delegated.
    Thanks

  11. Allow subscribing to published iCal calendars and vice versa

    I suggest that you add functionality to both Outlook for Mac and Outlook for Windows to enable subscribing to published iCal calendars (or Mac Calendar.app), and to enable publishing of Outlook calendars in a form that can be subscribed to from iCal. This should, of course, sync changes in both directions.

  13. Ability to use your finger to change appointments

    If a task takes longer than expected, I need to change all following tasks manually by clicking on each appointment and adjusting the time by 30 mins or changing the day if I don't make it anymore. Why can't I just move appointments using touch on my phone? If it's an option you can switch on yourself, people can choose whether they want to have this feature or not.

  14. Scheduling Assistant

    While scheduling assistant allows you to select "Show Work Hours" when Work Days are made in Outlook preferences, it would be great to reflect the work days as well when using Scheduling assistant. For eg. If M-F are set as my work days, I should only see those days in scheduling assistant and not Saturday and Sunday;

  16. Make the insert as text option available when attaching a file

    When attaching a file, for example an HTML file, there should be a drop down option like there is on a PC, which allows you to insert the file as text into the body of the email. This will allow HTML emails to be sent from outlook without formatting being messed up and without using a third party email service.

  19. Allow undocking of calendar

    I use Windows and Mac for work so it is an everyday requirement. Outlook on windows allows you to open the Calendar as a seperate window. That way I can keep my Outlook mails section and Outlook Calendar open at the same time. In Mac I can only have either or open.
