        • Quick jump to top of message list

          When doing message searches or reordering message lists, you often find yourself in the middle of a long list and have to manually scroll to the top. Add a qquick "jump to top of list' feature -- modeled after Apple iPhone 'jump to top' that is incorporated into many of its apps.

          • I suggest you create the ability to make calendar meeting templates

            I would like to see the ability to create a calendar meeting template that can be saved and distributed as a file.

            For my own needs, this would allow me to have anyone from my company create and schedule a meeting with me and have the same standard universalized content since the necessary info that I need will be included in my template for each individual to fill out per their own meeting needs.

                • Align create meeting feature with Windows

                  Windows: creating a new meeting invite from an email adds the entire email thread to the meeting invite.

                  Mac: using this feature removes the from, sent, to, and subject from the body of the meeting invite, making it look like you are the one who wrote the last email in the thread.

                      • Markers

                        The "checked markers" you can add when you have read or finished doing a task from mail, is grey and not so easy to see when you scroll down all your mail. Earlier they were green and much easier to see. I would like you to colour them again with an easy to spot colour!

                          • Don't change Date sort order when switching to another column sort

                            Have been using Outlook for Windows for 20+ years so I'm kind of stuck in my ways. Running Outlook for Mac 2016 v15.30 (170107).

                            Here's a problem that is slightly time consuming, so I'd like to see if I am doing something wrong,
                            I keep my mail sorted by date, "Z to A" (newest on top). Once in a while, for example, I want to see all messages from a co-worker, or all messages with the same subject (in the same folder). I click on the "From" or "Subject" header and the sort column is changed. That works well but....…

                                Good news. Beginning in the March production release of Outlook for Mac (version 16.11), you can now view two time zones in the calendar grid. Go to Preferences > Calendar > Time zones to select the second time zone.

                                Note: this feature is available via Office 365 subscription license activation.

                                Please refer to the release notes article here:
                                https://support.office.com/en-us/article/release-notes-for-office-2016-for-mac-ed2da564-6d53-4542-9954-7e3209681a41

                                Thanks,

                              • Add favorites section.

                                I use a lot of Outlook rules to have mail "Skip my inbox" and go directly to another folder. In outlook 2013 for PC, I can easily keep track of incoming mail to those folders by populating the "FAVORITES" section with each of those sub-folders. In Outlook 2016 for Mac, I have to make sure my ENTIRE folder structure is expanded and constantly scroll through it to make sure I haven't missed anything. Please add the "Favorites" feature as it's one of the only things keeping me from being productive.

                                    • more color options preferably darker colors

                                      the color options in outlook calendars are hard to distinguish
                                      would prefer darker blues and greens

                                      • Show my time zone for new meeting time

                                        I frequently suggest new times for meetings thinking the calendar is showing my time zone, then I end up with a meeting much earlier than I would like.

                                        It would be better for me to see my time zone when proposing new meeting times.

                                        • Email attachment temp directory volatility

                                          Address the issue where email attachments are saved, then opened from a temp directory when accessed from email directly. If the user makes changes to the attachment and attempts to save the file, the default save location is the same parent directory as the attachment. That temp directory's contents are deleted when Outlook quits which can be a problem when the user doesn't realize where they're saving and save the file to the temp directory. Later when looking to access the file they can't because the file has been deleted.
