  2. I just switched from PC to Mac, and bought Outlook bc I am used to using it o

    Add the "dock to peek" option for calendar in Outlook for Mac, so you can view your mail and calendar side-by-side. Love this feature on my PC version but not available in MAC version :(

  4. Forward a meeting without host or other invitees seeing the new invitee

    I'm a consultant and work with several clients. My clients require me to have an email address and calendar on their domain. Some clients even require me to use their hardware, which makes it impossible to integrate or combine calendars. In my attempt to control chaos, I maintain a separate "master calendar" that includes every meeting I'm invited to across all clients. Maintaining this calendar currently requires me to manually add a meeting every time a client invites to a meeting using their own email/calendar domain.

    I would like to be able to forward emails to my master calendar, but…

  5. Add option to reduce attachment icon size

    Include an option in the settings to reduce the size of the attachment icon/file name when reading an email. With multiple attachments, the icons take up a large area of the screen. The previous version had smaller, less kid-friendly icons that took up less space in the reading pane, and it would be nice to have the option to have that view again.

  6. hold emails in Outbox until you manually send and receive

    On clicking SEND, hold email in Outbox until you manually initiate a send and receive.

    This functionality exists for Outlook on PC, but not on Mac.

  7. Open installed onenote application instead of onenote in browser

    First off, thank you for getting one note integrated into Outlook, albeit in a not-so-perfect manner

    Currently, when you open onenote notes from a meeting, outlook prompts for opening one note and when the user selects, it opens out one note in the browser, even when onenote application is already installed.

    Can we modify the behavior to open the one note application directly, if it is already installed?

  8. Arrows in the calendar view to show there are meetings that cannot fit in the hours displayed

    In the calendar view, to make entries readable you can display maybe 10 hours of the day. As organizations today span the globe, we often have meetings outside our "daytime" hours. An arrow at the top or bottom of each days hour listing to indicate there are meetings on this day that are not currently displayed would remind us we have another meeting to attend.

  15. I suggest non-English language text input method shortcut key must be prioritized than Outlook shortcut key.

    Non-English language text input method needs shortcut key to transform the characters like Kanji, Chinese character, etc.
    But Outlook and some Office application force to assign each application's shortcut and they disable text input method shortcut.
    This is really headache.
    Please give us shortcut key assignment settings in all office applications or leave the priority to text input method shortcut.

  16. Ability to permanently disable MS Add-Ins to Oulook for Mac

    Not everyone uses or wants to use OneNote or Customer Manager, and if you’re not using these applications, these buttons take up valuable space in the ribbon, hiding other more useful buttons - e.g. Read/Unread. I appreciate this issue is linked to screen size, and is therefore probably not an option on larger laptops or desktops screens, but it is a significant issue on smaller laptop screens.

    When I raised this with MS Support, I got the following response: "we are able to reproduce it on our end and we have a confirmation that this is expected behaviour for OneNote…

  19. Add an option in Preferences to 'Allow' or 'Not Allow' automatic launch of Outlook at Login

    See suggestion above. This will reduce waiting time at Login if the desired application to start right away is other than Outlook (which takes a long time to complete)
