  1. I suggest you enable RSS feeds for Mac

    I suggest you enable RSS feeds for Mac. I really do. I know I'm not the first. I saw this posted previously and the response was:

    "Thank you for your feedback, we have reviewed this feature, unfortunately, we will not be implementing this feature as this does not align with our overall goals. Thank you for your continued participation in making Outlook for Mac better."

    Clearly we are not participating in making Outlook for Mac better. It won't happen because it doesn't align with "your' goals. I imagine the consumer goals are not important.

    My question is, what does having…

  2. Mac/Windows

    IN our company we use both Mac and windows. If we want to share file paths (a link) via email - the file path should be translated between the different platforms.... bam! a million dollar idea :-)

  3. Print calendar in dark mode with black type

    Currently when printing a calendar in dark mode, the type is reversed and doesn't appear on the print. Please correct so that printing in dark mode provides a color print out but with black type on white (or color).

  4. Make prominent notification or icon when Outlook is not connected to the server

    Please make it more prominent, when Outlook isn’t connected to the server. The status bar on the bottom right of Outlook for Mac is not that noticeable.

    It would be great to have a more clear signal when Outlook is offline.

  5. I suggest you add spell check before sending as an option.

    I suggest you add spell check before sending as an option. Yes there is spell check as you go but spell before sending is better and what people are used to using outlook. Not sure why the MAC version has to miss such clear essentials.

  7. Putting back a badge count in the item list

    when item list is collapsed and there are unread messages without a badge count you wouldn't know unless you know of the email or the sender.

  8. Allow Reading Pane Right to display one line

    Allow the option to change Reading Pane Right to display one line per email instead of three. Both Reading Pane Below and Hidden displays only one line. Some people can't reading three lines of text per email. Too much information.

  12. Remove Event Summary

    Please remove or give option to turn off event summary in email preview pane and email pane. It is not helpful, but rather a hinderance as you cannot not read email well.

  13. Check the folder synchronization for calendar.

    The latest version (16.26 (19060901)) has issues when a new invite is received, it's not showing on the Outlook client. It shows online, though.

    The issue happens when I send my computer to sleep and Outlook is disconnected from the network. I have to quit Outlook and open again to get the updated calendar entries.

  15. Please allow copying email addresses from the "Key Details for Contacts" section. This used to work earlier.

    This used to work earlier but has become extremely tedious. We work across many geographies and it isn't always possible to type out all email addresses.

  20. 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.
