  2. Don't change Date sort order when switching to another column sort

    Have been using Outlook for Windows for 20+ years so I'm kind of stuck in my ways. Running Outlook for Mac 2016 v15.30 (170107).

    Here's a problem that is slightly time consuming, so I'd like to see if I am doing something wrong,

    I keep my mail sorted by date, "Z to A" (newest on top). Once in a while, for example, I want to see all messages from a co-worker, or all messages with the same subject (in the same folder). I click on the "From" or "Subject" header and the sort column is changed. That works well but....…

  6. Approvals from Mac

    The ability to approve messages is not currently supported on Mac. When a message comes through requiring approval, I'm forced to log on to OWA or find a PC to approve the message.

  9. Allow color coding of folders, make folders=categories

    Sifting through folders and organizing emails is very time-consuming now because you can't color code them, add icons, or visually differentiate them on the sidebar. So when you're looking for which folder to put an email into, it's hard to immediately spot it. Also, folders are limiting because if an email fits in 2 categories, you have to duplicate it and put it in both. Categories, on the other hand, seriously rock because you can quickly tell which one they are because you can assign a color, and because you can give one email multiple categories. I would love to…

  12. autocomplete email addresses

    Outlook seems to autocomplete email addresses only from the address book. Complete from addresses in all mailboxes would make a great feature

  13. add find message by RFC 2822 messageID header to applescript dictionary

    Currently, the only way to find a message in outlook is by "open message id". This id is some kind of internal database id, but is NOT consistent across machines. So an AppleScript that takes an email to a TODO list for example with a link to the email, cannot ask Outlook to open a given "message id" (different message opens). It would be so much better if there was an open by the actual message id header value (as per RFC 2822), so that you could open an email consistently between your say laptop and desktop machines.

  14. Add support for team calendars

    One of the biggest things I miss in Outlook 2016 for Mac vs the Windows version is that when I go into calendar view I don't see my team members, nor do I see a way to add them or anyone else in my organization.

    In Windows I can add individuals in my organization whose names then appear in the sidebar under the 2 months displayed (where the "categories" currently are in the Mac version). I can just check the boxes next to their names and their schedules show up next to mine. Makes it much easier to find free…

  15. Block ability to Archive Emails to Mac

    Provide a mechanism to restrict users from archiving emails locally to their Mac. Many corporations restrict this on PC's with PST files and we need a way to do this as Macs continue to grow in the Enterprise environment.

  16. Make folder search algorithm configurable

    The latest update changed the folder search algorithm in the "Move Email to Folder" function from a ending wildcard (abc) to a double wildcard (abc*). Now all searches find multiple matches. Please provide a way to specific which wildcard search you want.
