    • Remove Send button from Touch Bar

      MS has started to integrate the touch bar into the Office suite- which is awesome. I’ve seen some improvements to my workflow. However, the last update has added a “send” button to Outlook. In the last two days, I have accidently sent several messages while still composing. MS needs to allow configuration of the touch bar, or move/remove the send button ASAP.

      • drag and drop attachments from email

        The new updates have removed the ability to drag and drop attachments from emails. The windows version still has this. I should be able to drag an attachment to another email without downloading it or drag and drop the attachment to the desktop.

          • Fetch mailbox signature from Outlook Web

            The Outlook client should have a way of syncing the email signature from the cloud.

            It is important to keep all signature synchronized between all clients, Outlook web, Outlook client, Outlook for mac, Outlook for iOS and so on.

            The Exchange Transport Rule is not an ideal fit for this scenario.

            • New message in bold and blue

              Since the update from last monday of Outlook (now 15.32) for Mac the incoming mail is now in font medium and black in stead of bold and blue. Can you please change it back to bold and blue? Also there is a line between the mails that doesn't make it easier to watch.

              • allow some customisation of touch bar in outlook

                my finger strays onto the send button on the touch bar in outlook and this is causing some embarrassment. Please allow us to turn on or off this functionality or to customise the bar in outlook

                • 24 Hours clock to 12 Hour AM/PM time conversion in calendar setting

                  When user input 24-hour format time (ex. 15:30),
                  It does not change to 12-hour time (ex. 3:30 PM). But It changes to “1”

                  So many people unintentionally enter an appointment at the wrong time when using 24-hour time representation
                  In windows, “15:30” changes to “3:30 PM” automatically.

                  • Allow group by subject, sort by date, outside of conversations

                    I would like to be able to select: arrange by subject, newest on top, show in groups. This would work just like arrange by conversations, newest on top, show in group, except it would work for messages that have the same subject but are not in a conversation.

                    Here's the use case: my corp wiki sends me a message whenever a page I'm watching is updated. There's a lot of these. The subject is always: "[Wiki] title-of-the-page-that-was-updated". So when someone saves frequently while working on a page I get a lot of messages with the same subject, but they are…

                    • I want to make Skype calls directly from Outlook; currently that is a 5 step process.

                      I use Outlook (Mac 2016) and Skype all day. I want to make Skype calls directly from Outlook; currently it is a 5 step process. Am I missing something?

                      • Conversations - Need to synergise with the Windows Version

                        I know there are some repeat requests, both in this "Business" forum as well as the consumer one.

                        Conversations for Mail need to have deleted items and sent items visible.

                        I know I can click on the "quote arrow" in the message, but it is so much easier in Outlook 2016 for Windows.

                        Even Apple mail shows them more intuitively.

                        I really want to use Outlook 2016 for Mac, but I end up going to the Windows version in my Parallels Windows 10 VM, because it just works.

                        Or maybe that's the idea... you want me to use Windows instead?

                        • Add ability to disable or customize toolbar

                          As of 15.34 (170330) this is still not implemented. We NEED to be able to customize touchbar otherwise we cannot use Outlook as our email client. Emails are legal documents for many businesses and it's simply too easy to send emails prematurely with the send button in the touchbar. Thanks.

                          • Show more specific dates / times in Inbox list (e.g. not just "Yesterday" for everything)

                            When looking at the Inbox listing, every email from yesterday just says “Yesterday” for the timestamp. I have to click on each email in turn to get anything more precise than that.

                            On Windows and on the web version of Outlook, it’ll say something like “Thu 1:45 PM” next to each message instead. This is *much* more useful for scanning the list quickly (e.g., I remember I received an important email yesterday morning… how far down do I scroll until I’m looking at emails from before noon?).

                            The Mac UI should show the same timestamps as Windows & web. No…

                            • Integrate pinning of the calendar to Mac Outlook

                              Please offer the ability to pin calendars for Mac clients similar to the Windows feature. Having to continually switch views is painful and is a step back from the previous version of Outlook that had the My Day feature.

                                • Delete appointments silently

                                  When deleting an appointment, Outlook for OS X sends a declined message to the meeting creator, even if the meeting/appointment has passed.

                                  This is inconsistent with Outlook for Windows; in Outlook for Windows if you delete an appointment it does not send a notification.

                                  I would like Outlook for OS X to be consistent with Outlook for Windows on this item.

                                  Thank you.

                                    • Stop opening all previously added shared calendars when I add one new shared calendar

                                      When I add a new shared calendar, Outlook for Mac automatically selects every other shared calendar I have previously opened (by ticking all their boxes) thus causing Outlook to try to load all those calendars at once, and thus stalling for many minutes. Ironically the new calendar being added is the only one to not be ticked. I assume this is a bug not the intended mode of operation.

                                        Allow saving of attachments directly to OneDrive from within Outlook for Mac, similar to the web and windows clients.

                                        • ARCHIVE function?

                                          How come the ARCHIVE button has disappered on version 2017??? We are using an Exchange system. Our co-workers using the Windows version have this option. Please! Fix that problem as quickly as possible!!!!!!
