  1. Support for Apple iCloud calendar

    It's extremely important to sync Calendar App with Outlook calendar to let me use Outlook for Mac instead of Mail App.

            • Calendar location with urls should be clickable in all calendar views

              It is very common to receive a calendar invite that includes a link to a web meeting (Skype 4 business, Zoom, GoToMeeting, Webex, ..). Majority of people put "Location" and actually add the url to this field. However, on Mac and on Windows Outlook there is no good way to actually click the link, or copy it to open it in the browser. It would be great to have any links/urls in Location open in the default browser.

              • Add option to view tasks by start/due date on week/work week calendar views

                Feature already exists in Windows version of Outlook. Would love to see it come to the Mac version as well. It's helpful to see tasks by due/start date in the same view as the calendar.

                • Fix permissions so that shared calendars don't need "Reviewer" permissions to see titles and locations

                  Currently, any calendars set to "Can view titles and locations" in OWA are seen in OWA and Apple Calendar.app, but not in Outlook 2016. The only way to see shared calendars in Outlook is for the owner to change permissions to "Can view all details". This makes shared calendars appear in Outlook, but triggers reminders for all users who can see the events.

                  Fix Outlook for Mac so that shared calendar titles and locations can be viewed when "Can view titles and locations" permissions are set.

                  • Move the "sent" date for calendar invitations

                    I like the new "bold" treatment on meeting invitations, but having the “sent” date and the “meeting” date so close together is confusing - my eye keeps being drawn to the sent date instead of the actual meeting date. It would be good to place the sent date somewhere else not so visually close to the meeting date.

                    • As a business user who switched from Windows to a Mac, some features are missing. I suggest you....

                      For Outlook for Mac 365, add the "Tracking" option to the calendar Ribbon and make the list of invitees printable.

                      • Get rid of shifting events in the calendar

                        It's annoying when you accidentally shift a meeting or event and it gives you a pop up that says "you have made changes to this meeting. If the organizer sends you an update, your changes will be deleted". I never use this feature to move around others events. This usually happens if I quickly double click an event, but it shifts the event somehow in the calendar.

                        • Make it easier to view another user's calendar.

                          As a system's administrator I have rights to other user's mailboxes. When I view those user's calendars I get that user as an option in the send from box of my email. I would like to be able to view a calendar without unleashing all these other features.

                          • Display multiple shared calendars side-by-side (currently limited to 3) in day view.

                            I regularly need to view multiple shared calendars (often 8 or 9). This is fine in Outlook for Windows which allows multiple shared calendars to be displayed side-by-side in the day view, but the Mac version limits me to 3 calendars side-by-side. Adding any more merges the content making it much more difficult to identify individuals and schedule activities. I'd like to see the restriction removed to allow multiple calendars to be displayed in individual columns making scheduling across multiple individuals and rooms much easier.

                                Some of our users would like to be able to easily select which calendar invitees can/can't see attachments, without having to rely on password-protected folders/zip files. This would apply to Outlook for Windows and Mac, as we use both in our environment.

                                • Have Calendar reminders pop up when Outlook is not open

                                  In previous version of Outlook, reminders popped up even when Outlook was not running. This meant that one could focus on a task but not have email disturbing you, yet still get reminded 15 mins before that next meeting you planned on going to.

                                  • Allow hover for Calendar appointments again

                                    In previous versions of Outlook you could hover over an appointment in the Calendar and see the meeting details. Now you have to click it and you get a balloon with the details. Please restore the original behaviour as its far faster.

                                      Display multiple timezones on the calendar view, this feature is supported for Outlook for Windows and I really miss it. Having teams split between GMT and PST its a really handy way to schedule joint sessions.

                                      • Behavior when adding Appointments and Meetings

                                        (Outlook for Mac 2016). We use shared calendars a lot, so it would be nice when creating an Appointment (for all users to see, but no invitation necessary) from the email window, that you have the option of selecting which calendar, instead of your own exchange calendar. This can be done from the Meetings dialog (From line), but not the Appointment dialog. The user must go into the Calendar view, then select the calendar they want to add the Appointment into. It doesn't seem to be able to be done from the Email view.

                                        Thank you.

                                        • Sync Outlook Calendar meetings and Skype for Business status

                                          When a meeting has been scheduled and is in progress in Outlook for Mac - Business (2016), it should sync with Skype for Business on Mac (2016) to automatically change status to "In a Meeting." This already syncs well on the PC/Windows version of Outlook 2016 and Skype for Business 2016 but not on Apple Mac. Thank you!
