  1. Notify the user that a meeting series is about to expire

    As an example, users may schedule a meeting series weekly for 6 months and may forget that a meeting series is going to end at the 6 month period. We should receive an alert or automatically generated e-mail on the day of the last meeting stating that this is the last of the meetings in the series, would you like to extend or create a new series.

  3. Ability to create Channels

    I would appreciate the ability to create "channels" (precisely the same way as in Slack), which will give one the ability to email from a channel/folder without the need to create folders with endless rules. This feature will assist users to keep their emails/work neatly in one place.

    When you email out of a specific channel/folder, the sent and subsequent email communication will be stored/directed to that channel. Which also means that your sent and received items will be in one area (channel). On the other hand, when you receive an email, you can drop it in your desired channel/folder…

  4. Save email from an obsolete email account without also having Outlook try to sign in to that account

    Make it easy to save email from an obsolete email account without also having Outlook try to sign in to that account every time the app is launched (or much clearer how to do this).

  5. Hide Unaccepted Meeting Invites

    Currently, all calendar invites that aren't accepted show up slightly grayed out. This feature would allow you to toggle on and off showing unaccepted meeting invites so that you could see the meetings you have committed to easier with also having the option to see possible meetings as well.

  6. Add New Window button to Touch Bar when no window in focus

    When Outlook is in focus, but no window exists, it would be helpful to have a Touch Bar button to open a new window, similar to the effect of clicking the dock icon or using the View -> Go To -> Mail menu bar option. Safari and (Apple) Mail have similar buttons when the application is in focus, but no window is visible.

  7. On calendar, change sub hourly lines dashes

    Change the sub hourly lines to dashes rather than solid lines so they contract more with hourly lines. Outlook for the web is like this and much easier on the eyes.

  8. Add support fort selfservice:// links in Outlook

    At this time, if someone sends a link to a policy in Jamf Pro by sending a jamfselfservice:// link, this link is never detected as a link, and the user has to select the text and copy-paste it in a browser to open it. Self Service links should be detected and displayed as such in Outlook.

  9. Can also move sent mails to archive

    Outlook has the function "Archive".

    Unfortunately, this is only possible for mails you receive. (Inbox)
    Why isn't this for sent mail? (Outbox) I don't understand!
    What does that make sense just to archive the receipt and not send mails.
    Only half of it is archived!
    Is then again to search/find in two different places

    Archiving should also be available for sent mails!

  11. Add (optional) confirmation window before closing the application

    pressing CMD+Q by mistake rather CMD+W closes the application.
    I wish to have an option to enable a confirmation window which will prevent the application closing.

  13. Message Gets Automatically Deleted If Recalled

    Message Recall - where once you hit the button, the message gets deleted from the recipients' inboxes, whether or not they've read the msg.

  16. THEMES {Highlight Message we are working on to prevent mistake} are NOT availabl in Preferences-General as HELP guides that it does exist?

    THEMES {Highlight Message we are working on to prevent mistake} are NOT available in Preferences-General as HELP guides that it does exist? Great Idea: Install THEMES to assist in locating message worked on. WEB MAIL has the DARK MODE BUTTON thank you, OUTLOOK APP does not. WEBMAIL has THEMES highlighting the message worked, OUTLOOK APP does not tsk tsk tsk. My old eyes go crazy with exhaustion having to locate and locate and locate the correct message. A color certainly would help, easy peavy ???? Thanks so much, we know you can do it.

  17. Change your system from something that looks like a chat line when it isn't. This is a big time waster. It looks like chat, it feels like c

    Can you please look at the Contacts system. Why can't I update or edit addresses in contacts if at some point a contact was imported from g-mail. It dosn't make any sense and makes the system and other features unreliable.

  18. right click in meeting invite selects last attendee

    When you are trying to add one person to a list of attendees already in the meeting invite, you naturally want to right-click in the "To" box and paste the addtional attendee. The problem is Outlook selects the last person in the invite and you end up replacing the last person in the invite with the person you want to add. It's maddening b/c if you don't know about it, you miss that you removed someone from the invite. Please do not have a right-click select the last attendee.

  19. I suggest you unlock the ability to add addresses in Outlook for the Mac OS version 16.37...I can't believe you just released an updated ver

    Ok...I guess its a policy not to add support for customers who bought for Office 365 and use Google (Gmail) to add address editing to Outlook Contacts.
