        I'm appalled that MS still hasn't done something about this. Maybe we should start looking for an email business who cares about what their customers need!

        Agree please add this! Its really key from a productivity point of view.

        This is insane - why does this feature not exist in Outlook for Mac... it's in several past versions of the Windows Outlook. I had to switch to a Mac for work and nothing short of disappointment on Microsoft's part.j

        I have tried the workarounds mentioned below and they work if you are not sharing calendars. Since I am responsible for more than one, and more than one inbox, I can't do New Window without losing the left side functionality of selecting the calendar I need to view and work it.

        I beg you, please add this feature. The Mac version is essentially useless to me otherwise.

        Incredibly annoying that this feature is held back from mac users - the only reason I added outlook for mac was for this feature - back to the old system until this is rolled out to paying customers

        Still waiting after a couple years for this important feature. Outlook business calendar "dock a peek" feature is one of the most essential tools to keep you and your team organized. Microsoft is making Apple and Google calendars more practical without this feature (switched all three of my companies). Microsoft, please let us know when we can get this standard feature from Outlook for Mac 2011 in your latest update. =)

        To all commenters on this thread: you can actually do this without waiting for Microsoft.

        But you'll need to embrace fullscreen mode (which is great for focus and I highly recommend).
        1. Select the calendar screen
        2. Right click on a calendar in the sidebar and "open in new window"
        3. View -> Uncheck Sidebar
        4. Toggle back to the email view in the original window
        5. You should now have two windows, one with your calendar view and one with email
        6. Click and hold on fullscreen mode in your e-mail window
        7. Select the left side of the split for the email
        8. Click the calendar window you created earlier as the right half of your split.

        I completely agree. A workaround I have found is to use File --> New --> Main Window (twice). Leave the original window as Mail, set the other two to Tasks and Calendar respectively, and then manually tile them on your desktop so you can see all three. This is a major pain and you have to do it every time you launch Outlook for Mac. Microsoft needs to fix this. It appears to have been an issue with Outlook for Mac since 2011. Seven years seems like enough development time to have figured this one out.

        Please add the dock a peek on Outlook for Mac. This feature is very helpful in seeing your day at a glance and what's coming up, etc.
