  1. Allow Office 2016 for Mac to pass your enterprise login credentials from the OS of the Mac to Outlook 2016 for Mac client.

    I would like to know more about the inability to pass your enterprise login credentials from the OS of the Mac to the Outlook 2016 for Mac client. Specifically, can this be done? If so, how? If not, why not? This functionality exists for Windows and the related version of Office 2016 for Windows. When using this combination of software my enterprise login credentials are passed thru to Outlook. When I change my password the updated password is automatically passed thru to Outlook for Windows. When I change my password on my Mac the Outlook for Mac client prompts me…

    • Pinning calendar peek/tasks peek on Outlook 2016 for Mac

      In earlier versions of Outlook, I always had a "peek" on the right side of my screen that included two months calendars, up to 7 days of events, and outstanding tasks. I recently upgraded to Outlook 2016 on the Mac and it's gone. There is no way to get it back either. I've searched the menus high and low; nothing. The various support articles on the 'net suggest hovering over the calendar icon to get it there; nothing happens when I hover over those icons.

      • Forward meeting invitations, like in Outlook for Windows

        In Outlook for Windows you can forward a meeting invite received by person A (the organiser) to a person B. The result is that the person B receives the same meeting invite, can accept and gets a meeting entry in his calendar, and the original organiser gets notified that another person will attend the meeting. All future updates of the meeting by the organiser, will go to all attendees, including person B.
        with Outlook for Mac, this does not work :-( I can forward a meeting invite, but as an email. That's not useful. The additional invited person must create…

        • Add Ignore Thread / Conversation

          The windows client lets you select email threads and ignore all future responses to it. There's no reason mac users shouldn't have this option. I would love to ignore all threads involving my coworkers cats or memes on my mac client, but I can't. I'm forced to live with their cats and cat meme threads.

            • Drag and Drop email to create new item

              On the Windows based version of Outlook, you can drag and drop emails to either the calendar, tasks, or contacts to create new items. The subject of the email becomes the calendar or task subject and the body of the email goes in the notes field.
              Bring this functionality to the Mac version so that drag and dropping of emails works to other areas of Outlook.

                • Add Calendar and ToDo peek to Mac version of Outlook

                  Outlook for Windows has a peek of your calendar and Todo list. This isn't available in the Mac version, which is incredibly frustrating.

                        • Align create meeting feature with Windows

                          Windows: creating a new meeting invite from an email adds the entire email thread to the meeting invite.

                          Mac: using this feature removes the from, sent, to, and subject from the body of the meeting invite, making it look like you are the one who wrote the last email in the thread.

                                    Support for internet calendar feeds. The main use case is the ability to see conference schedules in Outlook. For example, I attended WPC and Ignite this year and had to keep switching back and forth between Outlook and the conference website/apps to determine my true schedule.

                                      • I suggest that when you have a rule that forwards an email that it doesn't move the original message into the "Drafts" folder.
