  1. Calendar and task-list in main-screen of outlook

    At the moment calendar and task-list just can be used in separate screens. It would be very useful to implement both features (calendar & task-list) in the main screen of outlook, where mail view and folder structure is located. Windows-version of outlook already delivers this function by a so called "popup"-function, so please make it possible for mac-users, too. thanks.

    • Ability for Calendar filters, i.e. Categories, to support Grid view, currently only supports List view. Feature removed in 16.20 update

      Microsoft removed the feature for you to select which Category to show on a Calendar i.e. Grid View. You used to be able to do this by clicking on the Triangle next to a Calendar in the Sidebar which would display all of your Categories. Then you could pick and choose which Categories to display on your Calendar. Now that this feature is removed, you must use Filters, which would be OK but Filters only support List View. Feature removed in 16.19 or 16.20 update.

      • Allow sync with IMAP calendars

        I just found out that IMAP calendars will no longer sync with Outlook 2016. Calendars are such an important part of business services, I'm not sure why this was removed!

              • [Bug report] Offline updates to calendar invites are lost

                As a user of Outlook connected to Exchange, I want to add information to an unsent meeting invite when I am not connected to a network.
                Expected result: The calendar invite can be updated before it is sent (in a similar manner to unsent emails), and the recipient sees the latest version.

                Actual result: Changes made to unsent meeting invites are lost, and there appears to be no way to recover the unsent changes that were made.
                Client version: Outlook for Mac 16.12 (180410)

                Server: Exchange (unknown version)

                Steps to reproduce:

                1. Disconnect from network (preventing Outlook from sending).
                2.…

                  • Easier calendar selection with multiple calendar

                    When creating a new calendar event or adjusting an existing one and you have multiple O365 accounts connected to Outlook there should a clear selection bar when you can select the calendar (like the from field selector when you send an e-mail) so it is obvious which calendar you are selecting.

                    Right now it is roll the dice!

                        It's extremely important to sync Calendar App with Outlook calendar to let me use Outlook for Mac instead of Mail App.

                        • Switching events between calendars in Outlook App

                          In the previous version of Outlook for Mac, the user could drag an existing event from one calendar and drop it into another calendar, like a shared calendar, simply by dragging it over to the right-side menu and hovering over the calendar the user wanted to move it to.

                          In the latest version, that doesn't seem to be possible anymore (16.20).

                          • Add a toggle to show declined events

                            I want to be able to 'decline' meetings and event invitations, but still see them on my calendar.
                            This is useful when my office is having a party or event where tickets or meals will be purchased. They need to know I won't be attending, but I also need to know that they'll all be busy so that I don't try to schedule meetings over those events.
                            I know I can use the scheduling-helper to see invitee's availability, but it would be a lot more useful to just at-a-glance know when there's an event or meeting that I declined but…

                                In the latest version of MS Outlook for Mac verbiage was changed on calendars when attempting to remove shared calendars. When right clicking on a shared calendar now and selecting 'remove', this option no longer just removes the calendar from view. Depending on permissions it may actually delete that shared calendar. Remove and Delete are not the same thing and absolutely shouldn't serve as both. After the latest Outlook upgrade, several users appeared in one of our users calendar view that they didn't want or need so they right clicked and selected remove. This deleted every event from that persons…

                                    • Add the ability to copy/paste or export meeting attendees status

                                      When creating large meetings it is difficult to track meeting attendance status. In the Windows version you are able to copy attendee status to the clip board which I can then paste into Excel and build a pivot table to quickly see who has accepted an not responded. When there are more 12 users in the meeting this become very important in a business setting.

                                      Thank you

                                      • Display multiple shared calendars side-by-side (currently limited to 3) in day view.

                                        I regularly need to view multiple shared calendars (often 8 or 9). This is fine in Outlook for Windows which allows multiple shared calendars to be displayed side-by-side in the day view, but the Mac version limits me to 3 calendars side-by-side. Adding any more merges the content making it much more difficult to identify individuals and schedule activities. I'd like to see the restriction removed to allow multiple calendars to be displayed in individual columns making scheduling across multiple individuals and rooms much easier.

                                        • Add new calendar availability "working elsewhere" as in Windows.

                                          Used frequently now in our company due to flexible working. e.g. Working from Home or other office. Setting the calendar on available leads to people assuming you are in office, on away people feel you are not available for a meeting.

                                          Should be a very easy feature to implement.
