  2. 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.

  3. Honor OS X Do Not Disturb setting

    OS X has a Do Not Disturb feature in the notification panel. Outlook ignores the setting. I usually turn on OS X DND when I'm on a call.

    At the moment, I have to close Outlook to be sure no sounds pop up.
    Outlook should honor the OS X DND setting and mute itself appropriately.

    Good news. Beginning in the March production release of Outlook for Mac (version 16.11), you can now view two time zones in the calendar grid. Go to Preferences > Calendar > Time zones to select the second time zone.

    Note: this feature is available via Office 365 subscription license activation.

    Please refer to the release notes article here:

  6. Add favorites section.

    I use a lot of Outlook rules to have mail "Skip my inbox" and go directly to another folder. In outlook 2013 for PC, I can easily keep track of incoming mail to those folders by populating the "FAVORITES" section with each of those sub-folders. In Outlook 2016 for Mac, I have to make sure my ENTIRE folder structure is expanded and constantly scroll through it to make sure I haven't missed anything. Please add the "Favorites" feature as it's one of the only things keeping me from being productive.

  7. favourites

    I want to see favourites on my mac the same as on my pc. I have many email accounts and i want to choose what/how many i see by default. Seeing all inboxes is really distracting for me now on mac 2016.
