  1. add folder clean up functionality from Windows Outlook to Mac Outlook

    Add folder clean up functionality from Windows Outlook to Mac Outlook.

    Folder Clean-up in Windows Outlook is wonderful. I'd like to see it in the Mac version

    • Allow manual sorting and ordering of tasks after creation

      Cannot find any way to manually sort tasks when using Outlook for Mac, I don't want to use priories and it should be trivial to sort tasks according to my own preference, not by date or title.

      • Ability to manage PST files wherever I want. for free space in disc

        Important to choose in which folder (like an SD little card) to save or put the mail files, Outlook for mac does not allow to do this, it is practical to leave free space in internal memory of the pc. (this can be done in windows).

        • 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.

            This is way to laggy compared to the MAC 2016 version. Connection to Gmail is very slow.

            • Disable "Reply to All" for recipients on BCC list

              Disable "Reply to All" for recipients on BCC list, or otherwise make it very clear to the recipient that they received an email via BCC, and to be careful about replying when there are others that are CC'd. BCC is used so that a sender can conceal that an email has been distributed to certain other parties, but because a recipient can reveal themselves to the CC list if they "Reply to All", this may cause problems for the sender. It may also result in clogging the inbox of people without an interest in what the BCC'd person has to…

              • BUG: "Focused" view of Inbox ignored with filters

                If I'm looking at my "Focused" Inbox (a feature I like, thanks!) and then select a filter, say "Unread", all of a sudden my "Other" Inbox messages are displayed. Oops. I consider this a bug, when I filter, I want to see less, not more. It would be acceptable if "Focused Messages" was one of the filter options and I defaulted to match what view I started the search from. In this case, it would probably be best to expose a new name for this filter and allow the values: focused/other/all.

                  Support the "Direct Replies To" feature that Outlook on Windows does.

                  • 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.

                    • Allow selecting recipients from the address book for bulk mailing.

                      In Office for Windows, when I compose a message, I can click the "To..." button next to the recipients field to bring up my address book and double click on any names I want to send that email to. According to a Microsoft support agent I chatted with, this feature is unavailable in Outlook for Mac. There is no way to quickly sent a bulk email unless I create a distribution list. This doesn't work as the emails we send don't always go to the same people. This is not an issue for anyone with a Windows PC, but our…

                      • Add ability to schedule email reminders for meetings

                        Recently noticed this feature in the O365 web client and have found it helpful to be able to schedule email reminders for certain meetings. Would love to see this feature come to both Mac and Windows Outlook clients.

                          Feature already exists for the Windows Outlook client. Frustrating for those of us who use both operating systems in the course of our business day to have some features available to us only on a given OS.

                            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.

                                I have been using Outlook for Mac for some time now. There was a recent update that enabled me to add/delete invitees to meetings and only send updates to those added/deleted. Seems that has gone away again. Would REALLY like to ahve that back as I am almost acussed of spamming when i am making regular updates to attendees.

                                The new bug I have noticed ocurred today. I cancelled a meeting, and one of the attendees did not get the notification. It's a recurring invite and only cancelled the one ocurrence. I went into the series, and looked at attendee…

                                • Enable a sorting filter by "Date Modified" or "Date Deleted" in the DELETED emails, when ALL inbox emails are accidentally deleted.

                                  I accidentally DELETED ALL my emails from my inbox. Though they're all in the DELETED file, I have no way to find the ones that were not brand new that I was saving intentionally in my inbox (yes, I should've flagged them). If there was a way (similar to MS Word Docs) to filter them by DATE DELETED, they would all be at the top and I could move them back to my inbox.

                                  • I suggest you make Outlook for Mac Compatible with MacOs 10.13.

                                    I just upgraded to 10.13 this morning and now it says that Outlook for Mac is not compatible. I am going to have to downgrade my macOs so that I can still use Outlook.

                                    • Make the emails list text clearer and smaller

                                      In Outlook for Windows you can make a smaller text size, that will have more emails fit in the same view. Today on MacOS, the email font is very large and allows for fewer emails to be listen in the view.

                                      • Add clear explanation of what update was made to a particular calendar invite

                                        I often get emails suggesting that a my calendar has been automatically updated with some change to an invite but it's never clear what the actual change was. Please add clear indication of what the change was.
