  1. Add support for iCloud Calendar and iClou contacts to Outlook for MacOS

    Please make it possible to use Oulook for MacOS with iCloud contacts and calendar. It should be possible by adding support for CalDAV and CardDAV.

    • enable export from outlook for Mac in anything other than .OLM, which is incompatible with anything other than Mac. How about CSV?

      Unless you are in a Mac-only shop, it is impossible to transfer email archives, contacts, etc from one computer to another unless you have an Exchange server - which we do not all have.

      • Develop Outlook for Mac for greater SharePoint Online integration

        Look at all the UserVoice comments that point to one issue: integrating Outlook for Mac better with SharePoint Online. SharePoint Online lists (e.g., the task app, the contacts app, etc.) cannot sync with Outlook for Mac. They should. There are solid reasons for businesses and governments to use Apple hardware and OS with Office 365 and SharePoint Online, but the functionality to include SPO lists in Outlook is only for Windows and not for the Mac OS Outlook client. Please change!

        • Mac - Outlook share extension

          I would to see the Outlook share available on Mac via the extensions under system preferences or at least some Services, to send email, move to draft, save to [folder] etc. Fingers crossed!

          • Update Modern Authentication for macOS High Sierra (10.13)

            Enable 'keychain-access-groups' entitlements in your Xcode build to allow modern auth with client certificates in Outlook for High Sierra.
            Trying to log into our SSO portal, I'm asked to select my client certificate for auth, but then taken to a 'access denied' screen. Outlook doesn't have permissions to access other items in the keychain in it's entitlements, so it can't access the cert.

            I see secd errors in Console.app all day.

            • Create a Calendar Event From an Email

              Use events, contacts, and other items found in emails. When we receive emails that include invitations, dates, times, addresses, phone numbers, and other types of information, you can easily use that information in Outlook Calendar and Outlook Contacts.

              • Accessibility options for visually impaired users

                Add options for changing the colors to help visually impaired (but not blind) users. Referring to:
                1. Allow the selected email to be highlighted in different shades of blue.
                2. Allow to add a background for the icons on the ribbon
                3. Allow changing the size of the icons in the ribbon

                • Remove the "Please upgrade the Outlook database" dialog

                  On first launch after some to many updates, users are advised to "Please upgrade the Outlook database" with text about how long it could take.

                  Most users don't know what to do with this info.
                  It's not an option to never upgrade
                  I've never seen it take more than 5 seconds.

                  It will be a better user experience to simply upgrade. It's a non-issue on modern flash storage, and those with ancient rust are used to things being slow. At worst, a dialog that boils down to "hang tight while we do the needful after the upgrade" while it happens…

                  • Make Ribbon/Toolbar configurable

                    The quick access toolbar and the ribbon bar need to be configurable.
                    They contain buttons which are never used (e. g. "Print" – who prints out emails?!) or buttons are inconveniently placed.

                    • I suggest a black theme for Office 365 on Mac.

                      On Windows are choices for the color theme, black, white, colorful, etc. For mac only Colorful and Classic. Reading the internet I found no solution but tons of people desiring the same. Please add Black theme for Office Mac. Thanks

                      • Please make the google integration work in any form. It is unusable as is.

                        Google apps for business are a major player and outlooks support is terrible. So many features not working I could not list them. Please improve

                          Add a setting for "Default Startup Folder View" as already voted for in the "none business" forum here https://outlook.uservoice.com/forums/293343-outlook-for-mac/suggestions/15332733-add-new-setting-default-startup-folder-view.

                          As suggested in the comments, at the very least the factory install default should the "All Accounts" Inbox.

                            • Shared calendars appear in "FROM" and "Out of office" fields.

                              When adding someone (or even a resource) to the shared calendars list, the account of that calendar appears in the From field when sending an email, and appears in the Autoreply Settings as a user you can change this for. There doesn't seem to be anything wrong with security rights, because sending an email or changing the Out of Office (autoreply) settings will get you an error. It clutters up our input fields though.

                                • Add high contrast themes

                                  As I'm getting older I find it harder to distinguish between very slight differences in contrast and hard to see very light text on light colored background. Please add a high contrast theme to Outlook. The new theme would be especially helpful on the folder list. Best would be capability to have purely black background with white letters or the reverse, white background with black letters. The current white background with light grey letters is killing my eyes.

                                  • Drag and Drop Items in Fullscreen

                                    When in the full screen view of outlook, and you have an email open, you can't drag an attachment, or another email message, into the message you are composing.

                                    You have no trouble doing the the PC version of Outlook.

                                    The only work around is to close full screen view, drag the message you are composing to one side of the screen and the main outlook window to the other side, then drag and drop whatever attachments or messages into the message you are composing.

                                    • Ability to move Outlook Profile folders to different drive

                                      Allow the move of Outlook Profile folders to different drive. This will enable Mac's with smaller drives to move Outlook folders to a SDXC drive to make space on internal drive.

                                        • Allow customization of fonts for all items (labels, text, window titles, etc.

                                          Outlook for Mac uses some kind of default font size and in the laptops this becomes unreadable. In windows, one can customize every single font. Please allow this! The lack of this customization makes the use of Outlook excruciating for people with poor eyesight.
