  1. Improve Delete Key to be more responsive when it comes to deleting calendar events

    Now that you introduced the button to Delete Appointment, when I click on an event and use the Delete key on my Mac, I cannot delete events or occurrences on my Outlook for Mac calendar. Can you please restore this hotkey as it’s more efficient for me.

        • Implement "Send as individual emails" to improve privacy

          Outlook 2016 (at least for Mac) currently does not have a method to send emails to a list of people as individual emails. Mail merge through Word is too complicated for a lot of people and using BCC has other problems.

          Adding "Send as individual emails" would help in improving privacy, along GDPR, while at the same time making sure receivers get properly addressed emails.

          • Focused Inbox for "All Accounts".

            Hello - in the latest Fast Build (15.33.170315) it has the new "All Accounts" at the top. It would be nice if Focused Inbox worked here as well (similar to Outlook for iOs).

            • close email after moving

              While reading an email, I select to move it to a folder using the menu option. I'd like the email close at that point.

                • Have "Not Junk" actually WORK

                  Have the Junk Mail filters actually DO something. If I mark something as "Not Junk", have that be reflected on the Exchange server. Telling me to add everyone as contact is an idiotic approach.

                    • Allow mac users to send email from an alias

                      Currently demoing Office 365 to see if we want to move our company to it. Was looking for ability we currently have on mac to be able to send an email from an alias email address. I believe that it's possible to do so on Windows (according to a support call) but the option is not available for mac users - again verified this with tech support.

                          • Add a save feature for calendar events - without 'sending an update'

                            Please allow for the ability to edit and save a calendar event after the fact without sending an update. It would be helpful to have a record of the events actual time, but often all parties at the event do not need to be bothered with that 'sent update.' This is helpful in tracking an employees time.

                                • Make EVERYTHING just like Windows.

                                  Why can't Office for Mac programs have the same features and customizations as Office for Windows ?!?! You can enlarge buttons in Outlook Windows, but not Mac; You can customize the ribbon in Outlook Windows, but not Mac; you can enlarge the folder font in Outlook Windows but not Mac, etc. etc. etc. Other than trying to punish people for purchasing a Mac instead of Windows, what could possibly be the reason for this?

                                    • Reinstate the "new mail" envelope icon in dock on Mac

                                      In previous versions of Outlook, this was the icon that appeared in my dock when I received a new message. So whenever I walked passed my laptop, the little white extra envelopen made it easy to spot if I had new mails. But now, in my new Outlook version, this icon doesn't appear anymore. I miss it dearly and I can't find an option to get it back?

                                      • With an email open, when you move an email to a folder, the action should also automatically close the email window (as it does in Windows)
