  1. Create new meeting from existing meeting

    Create a new meeting based on the attendees and notes of a current meeting. This could be used to setup a follow-up or continued discussion for that initial meeting. Include in the details of the new meeting the original meeting date/time as a reference.

    • Support for Apple iCloud calendar

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

      • Allow the user to "pin" an email to the top of their inbox, like on Outlook.com

        For my corporate email, I use outlook.office.com, Outlook for Mac, and Outlook for Windows, and Outlook for Android.

        I love the web client's ability to "pin" important emails to the top of my inbox. Since this feature is not supported on any other client, I end up using both the web and desktop clients throughout the day. It is very frustrating!

        • 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).

          • More prominent out of office reminder

            On Outlook for windows, when out of office messages are enabled a bar appears across the top of the inbox reminding that they are enabled. On a Mac this doesn't happen. I rarely shut down my computer or quit Outlook, so I often end up forgetting I've left OoO messages on until a colleague reminds me! Appreciate there's a notification when starting Outlook, but this doesn't help me!

            • Add a calendar when flagging an e-mail for follow-up. It prompts for a date (e.g. 2/2/2019), but you have to guess if that's a weekday.

              Pop up a view of a month, and select a day rather than having to enter a date that may not be a normal business day.

                • Minimum font size for Preview pane

                  I usually use "Smaller" for Text display size because folder pane and email list pane font gets smaller and look out more folders and emails at a glance. But in that case, font in preview gets smaller also and sometimes it's difficult to read. So could you make the feature to set smallest font size in preview pane? Actually most of case, we spend much of time reading email and small font gets tougher when you get older (40+). I can increase the text size by Cmd+'+' but in that case all the email's font gets bigger. Some html email…

                      • Allow Outlook to add .pst archives without needing to import or export.

                        Working in a domain environment on both Mac and PC based computers, I need to be able to access archived emails in .pst format, stored on a Windows network-based server, from both platforms.

                        • Favorite Folder Icon Sidebar

                          Similar to Outlook on Windows machines. The ability to collapse the sidebar to only favorite folders but not completely do away with it. I don't like the sidebar open displaying all of my unnecessary work folders. Would love the ability to switch folders without having the chunky sidebar fully enabled

                            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…

                            • enable export from outlook for Mac in anything other than .OLM, which is incompatible with anything other than Mac. How about CSV?

                              Unless you are in a Mac-only shop, it is impossible to transfer email archives, contacts, etc from one computer to another unless you have an Exchange server - which we do not all have.

                                  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…

                                    • Resolve the various incompatibility issues between sending Word documents as an email

                                      Word Documents which can be sent as an email in Windows send fine but when using the same document and being shared from Word into Outlook on the Mac they simply do not format the same, despite the document looking correct in Word. Problem is with the formatting of boxes (e.g. like an org chart). I have to revert to a Windows laptop to send documents.
