  1. 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.

    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.

  3. 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.

    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.

  6. Add the option "recent documents" to the "adding a file / attachment" function

    In the PC version such a function exists: When you want to attach a recently written document to your mail, you can directly get a list of your last documents using the attachment icon without having to look for those files in different folders.

  7. When using search dialog (cmd+shift+f), tab should jump to email list, not ribbon

    When searching for emails using the keyboard shortcut cmd+shift+f, there is no quick short cut to switch focus to the email results. pressing tab switches focus to [Home] in the ribboon. This forces me to switch over to my mouse to click the results.

  8. Three finger trackpad swipe up/down to switch email

    MacOS apps allow you to move between pages or emails with a three finger swipe in the email. This would works as follows:

    Open an email, read while two-finger scrolling to view entire message.
    When you're finished with the message, three finger swipe down to move to the next message, or three finger swipe up to move to the previous.

    This avoids needing to switch between keyboard and trackpad, and doesn't require you to manually click the next message. This works in most MacOS apps, including Mac Mail.

  9. Allow me to manually book focus time in Outlook

    I like the Focus Time feature that puts Focus Time on my calendar. But often I would like to add more Focus Time. How can I do that?

    On the Conversation page where you have the discussions from an email chain, it might be useful to have an expand and subtract icon, to allow a user to see a couple of sentences on a particular email.
    I often know what the thread is about and often people leave 1 liner responses, so for me to be able to see that in the context of a conversation is really useful.
    Opening the email fully, inline with the conversation may be useful sometimes, but you can easily lose your place in the thread if too much space is allocated to…

  12. Allow "Replies in folder other than Sent Items" This is so annoying

    Please allow ... URGENTLY... as this has been going on for years per the threads on this site... to save replies in folders other than Sent items.
    This causes me NO END of grief and is so time consuming to go and move all my sent items at the end of the day.

  14. Reminder about the end of recurring meeeting sequence

    to have a reminder (or a question) to extend the recurring meeting sequence when it is nearing the end.
    People who use recurring meetings often forget to extend them. Such reminder would help to keep the meetings running without disruptions. Otherwise, if the host choose to ignore the reminder, the recurrence would not be extended.

  16. Remove shift-return submitting

    As shift-return in other applications doesn't submit the message, instead adding a newline, I often press shift-return by accident and by this submitting unfinished e-mails. Sometimes extremely frustrating and causing confusion. Please remove this feature, or make introduce a feature-toggle in settings.

  17. separate scheduled emails from drafts... make a new "Scheduled Folder"

    Currently, emails that are scheduled to send in the future are stored in the drafts folder. I would suggest a new folder called "scheduled." They're really not drafts anymore if you have already clicked send and set it to automatically send sometime in the future.

    This would help separate emails that a user still needs to work on from those that are already proofed and ready to send.

  18. import wab file

    Create the possibility to import contact information from an old .wab file (from Outlook Express) into Outlook for Mac.

    Alternatively, provide a simple utility to read .wab files and output the information into a .csv file, which seems to already be supported for transferring contact information.

  19. Allow recipients of a calendar invite, either a meeting or appointment, to be able to edit the invitation title

    I want to be able to edit the title of received invites. Reason being, I want to have the same protocol on my calendar for MEETS, CALLS, ACTIONS etc. Senders operate to different ways of working but without editing it, my calendar is a mess. Clearly, if the invite is updated by the sender, I may need to reedit the invite.

  20. Remove warning about a meeting invitation not having a location

    When I create a meeting in Outlook, I get a nag-o-gram if I don’t put in a location saying, “You have not specified a location for this meeting.” All of our meetings are remote now so none have locations and this is getting rather annoying. Please remove the warning, or add an option to let us disable it.
