  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.

  2. Tally number of accepts, denies, etc on meeting invites

    In Windows Outlook, as a meeting organizer, you can open the appointment and see the total number of accepts, denies, tentatives and no responses. This is extremely useful for anyone organizing a work event and needing a head count.

  3. teams meeting details should appear at top of meeting invite

    When inviting people to a teams meeting on the Mac the meeting details are added to the bottom of the email and people often say that the joining information is missing however if this was at the top of the email /invite it would be easier and more obvious when they are joining the meeing.

  4. Automatic assignment of Meeting Rooms

    When I schedule a meeting (series of meeting ) it is difficult to get same meeting room for entire duration (entire series). To add to complexity, when there are participants from multiple location and we need to book a room for each location across the globe it gets more challenging. I want outlook to come up with smart meeting room allocation algorithm to pick up a meeting room from each location whichever are available for the time slot of a meeting. Algorithm could assign different rooms at different location for each occurrence of the meeting but at the time of…

  5. Provide "emails received that day" from a day being viewed on Calendar

    As a user, I often wish to see emails received on a past day or week of my calendar. I would like a contextual command to construct an email search criteria from the selected Calendar view.

    "Emails received that day|week"

  6. Display detail of a meeting attendee when you click same as in mail

    If I click an addressee in Outlook mail it show a pop-up with details of that person. Please add the same to attendee list in the schedule window for a meeting so I can see a persons detail without having to manually look them up in contacts.

  7. Calendar, refusing a meeting invitation do not delate the meeting from calendar

    It could be useful for time management to keep in the calendar a trace of a meeting on witch we've been invited even if we refuse participation

  9. Enable automatic synchronization of event answers between web-interface and outlook for mac (desktop app)

    When I send a calender event invitation to an attendee (in or out my organization) the outlook for mac desktop app does not sync the attendee's answer automatically with the web-interface. In the web-interface I can see that the person has accepted my invitation. But in the Outlook for Mac App I only see "the attendee has not answered yet". Even hours later this information is still not synced. I must click on "sync now" to update the calender. Then it works. It would be much more helpful if the outlook app syncs automatically.

  11. 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.

  12. Show only your own calendar reminders

    If you have several calendars from several mailboxes, it should be possible to select the calendars to which you want to get reminders. Right now you'll get reminders from all calendars. Alternatively only show reminders from the main calendar like in Outlook for Windows

  15. Make sending calendar notifications when something is changed optional

    Every time there is a change in agenda, or a meeting shortened to 30 minutes instead of 45, the calendar sends the changes to everyone as an email. If things need to be updated frequently, the people in the meeting get a barrage of emails which is confusing and unnecessary. Please allow the option of sending notifications or not for each change made to an invite. It would be much easier if some changes were able to be made without notifications.

  17. Develop an "add note" feature for invitees to Outlook calendar appointments/meetings.

    Let's say I've been invited to a meeting. I want to be able to keep track of questions I have, ideas to bring up, agenda items to propose, etc. just so I won't forget them. Items should be visible only to me.

  18. Make "Working Elsewhere" visible within Scheduling Assistant

    I work from home once a week, so I created an appointment for my remote day and selected "Working Elsewhere" for "Show As". However, in Scheduling Assistant, I am the only one who sees this status, so when someone is looking to schedule a meeting, I appear "Free". Please fix this issue so that Scheduling Assistant shows Busy, Tentative, Free, AND Working Elsewhere status. Thanks.

  19. Provide the ability to create folders for Gmail users.

    Our company uses Gmail. Most users use webmail which I find difficult to manage and difficult to follow threads/conversations. I would prefer to use Outlook. I am a consummate folder user. If I'm trying to get away from Gmail webmail, why make me go back to webmail to create and organize folders? Also, would appreciate the ability to access the corporate address book. This is for Outlook 365 on a Mac.
