  2. Give the ability to turn of notifications for delegate mailboxes

    Please give the ability to turn off notifications for specific mailboxes, or delegates. I am currently receiving notifications for a delegate mailbox that gets one about every 30 seconds, its incredibly annoying and I can only turn off all notifications or none of them, so if I turn them off I would have to have them turned off for my mail e-mail box. This is not helpful at all! You should be able to mute notifications per account that is delegated.
    Thanks

  3. Synchronized Signatures from Office 365

    Since the inception of Exchange and Outlook; we have found that it would be particularly useful to have our signatures synchronized across workstations; now that Office 365 is cloud based we would find it even more useful to use that as the springboard to our Outlook client installations. Currently, Office 365 allows you to create signatures that be composed of tables and graphics and the way we want our signature to look, looks very well, but we can't replicate that in Outlook and we prefer to use Outlook client for certain things, it is after all a feature rich client...…

  4. Ability to use your finger to change appointments

    If a task takes longer than expected, I need to change all following tasks manually by clicking on each appointment and adjusting the time by 30 mins or changing the day if I don't make it anymore. Why can't I just move appointments using touch on my phone? If it's an option you can switch on yourself, people can choose whether they want to have this feature or not.

  6. Scheduling Assistant

    While scheduling assistant allows you to select "Show Work Hours" when Work Days are made in Outlook preferences, it would be great to reflect the work days as well when using Scheduling assistant. For eg. If M-F are set as my work days, I should only see those days in scheduling assistant and not Saturday and Sunday;

  7. 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.

  9. Add marking of the current message that is being read on the message preview bar

    when clicking on the reading pane, the blue marker on the message preview pane disappears, making it hard to see which of the letters you are reading right now

  12. Make UNDO work after deleting something from my calendar.

    Here's an idea. Maybe when I accidentally delete an appointment or meeting the UNDO feature might work.

  13. Add ability to open Calendar in separate window on macOS

    Please add the ability to open Calendar in a new window as you can on Windows, would make cross-referencing e-mails and calendars much easier.

  14. Show calendar notification and Show as settings along with invite - Mac

    1) When a calendar invite arrives in my inbox, I would like to know the notification and calendar 'Show as' setting before accepting or declining the invite. Sometimes people set 'Show as' setting to be Out of Office while sending the invite and when I accept it, my calendar shows as Out of Office.

    2) And I don't want to get any notifications for such OOTO invites. So, I would like to have control of changing the notification setting while accepting an invite.

  17. Could you introduce viewing of flagged mails (moved from inbox to sub-folders) to be visible in the right pane of outlook

    Currently, the flagged mails can be seen only under smart folders. In the case of having many sub-folders, the smart folder doesn't get visible unless scrolled down. Considering this, could we introduce viewing of flagged mails in the right pane of outlook so that it becomes easily visible to those who rely on flagging mails to follow-up on those mails.

  18. fix preview crash

    Preview of text or PDF images crashs when one switches between them
    quickly. The MacOS spinning wheel shows and the dock indicates
    that one must Force Quit. This has happened repeatedly for months.
    You have been ignoring repeated reports about it. Today is 2018 Jun 28.
