  1. Archive context menu

    The "Archive" option in the Mac - Right Click context menu is pretty bothersome. It's right below the Delete. Which means I now have lost count on the number of times I have gone to Delete a message, accidentally Archived it, then had to hunt around for the Archive folder and delete the message from there again

    I reached out to Support and was told there is NO option to customise the context menu?

    I have had to switch to a 3rd party Outlook client - which essentially is not even ideal.

    Why can't the Archive option just be removed…

  4. Make behavior for change meeting recurrences to not apply for meetings that occurred in the past

    Currently, when you make changes for a meeting series, the Calendar makes changes for all recurring instances, even for past meetings. Please change it so that the edit will be applied for only future meeting occurrences for the series.

  5. I should be able to right click on a category and select "Collapse Categories". This function is available on Outlook when used on a PC.

    I know that I can collapse the categories in an inbox by going to "View" etc, but they just revert back to expanded.

  6. open mails from display dialogue on mac

    With a dialogue popping up based on filters, Mac user needs to close the dialogue and open the subfolder to read the mail.
    This is quite annoying in contrast to Windows implementation where the mails can be accesses directly from the notification dialogue which again lists all display dialogues in one pop-up window

  8. This is not a new Feature it is Giving us back control in Apple iOS

    In previous versions, if we set the size of the app window and closed the app using the quit feature by right clicking on the icon in the menu bar, the size we desired would be come the norm when opening. Then when we closed the app using the red button, it would retain the size and all was glorious and we CUSTOMERS were happy campers. However, since the last upgrade, you have unlinked this continuity and have unhinged WE, The USERS, CUSTOMERS AND THE ONES WHO BUY AND USE YOUR APPLICATION. Now, please be so kind as to fix…

  9. give the option to configure the action icons on the email lines

    The current look allows me to remove the columns that display the action icons that allow to delete or archive the email on the focussed line. The "New Outlook" does not allow that, and places those icons in the middle of the line where I click on them by accident all the time.

  11. disable the mail sent message banner

    Definitely not needed, annoying new pop-up banner: "Mail sent". Please provide an enable/disable control in PREFERENCES > NOTIFICATIONS.

  12. Please allow exporting of Tasks

    Please allow exporting of Tasks, I want to be able to back them up and having no option is wild. It says you can back up / export them as part of exporting all your data on some Microsoft help page, but when I actually tried to do that it wouldn't work. Not having a back-up option makes me feel like my data is one crash / failure away from being wiped out and I'll change if I can find a better app that allows it.

  14. Make it easier to toggle the microphone for dictation in Outlook 365.

    Suggest you move the microphone toggle icon to the left, somewhere near the send button. This will avoid the ned to scroll to the right to dictate, and then back to the left to send. Alternatively, how about a keyboard short-cut to toggling the microphone ? Don't use the same keyboard short cut as the native Apple dictation system (which is Fn twice) as the systems are different, and yours seems slightly better!

  15. please make it so that the emails of which I accepted invitation do not get removed from the inbox. At least make this 'feature' optional

    You know what I am talking about: often times in the invitation email there is a Zoom link (or similar) to a webinar or online meeting. I understand the link is still available in the calendar, but for a lot of people (me included) that is not the first place I look for the link. A lot of people are aware of an online meeting starting soon and they look for the link by searching in their mail box. That is simply commonplace and what you do is really not user friendly. You can keep both features of course, but…

  16. New Outlook Feedback

    I tried the "New Outlook" with the new layout and for some reason I'm not able to attached .PDF files when sending emails. I'm on a mac, and the way I attached them is by draging and dropping the file in the email. The files shows as attachment on the grey bar but it's unable to send.

  17. Bring back the ability to hide certain categories from the Calendar view

    The new outlook removed the ability to hide categories from a calendar. That creates a lot of clutter on calendars.

    Use Cases:
    1. OOTO - I need to be able to hide OOTO invites that co-workers send to my calendar since I don't need to see them all the time.
    2. Optional meetings / events - I categorize optional meetings separately and earlier I used to be able to hide them all in order to get a sense of my weekly commitments. Now there is no way to hide meetings that I am not planning to attend all the time,…

  20. Add a "leave" type of calendar invite

    This new type would be in addition to Out of Office or Free. Helpful to block out own calendar but not others that are invited. Avoids having to add 2 events, also avoids common confusions like blocking out other people's calendars inadvertently.
