  1. Signature

    Add coloured text in signature!

    It seems that this possibility was taken away after your last update (ver: 15.34 (170419). All my coloured text in signature turn black.

  2. Add the ability to copy the task list for pasting in another program

    In Outlook for Windows, you can select multiple Tasks in the Task List, click Copy, then paste the list into another tool (e.g. Excel). Doing this is really handy for quickly generating a list of tasks to save or send elsewhere.

  4. Allow color coding of folders, make folders=categories

    Sifting through folders and organizing emails is very time-consuming now because you can't color code them, add icons, or visually differentiate them on the sidebar. So when you're looking for which folder to put an email into, it's hard to immediately spot it. Also, folders are limiting because if an email fits in 2 categories, you have to duplicate it and put it in both. Categories, on the other hand, seriously rock because you can quickly tell which one they are because you can assign a color, and because you can give one email multiple categories. I would love to…

  5. Single Sign On support for Office365

    I'd like to see Office 365 support SSO/ADFS authentication. Other enterprise applications (e.g. Cisco Jabber) have incorporated ADFS based authentication. Ideally, in the controlled enterprise infrastructure, clients log into the computer with their AD based credentials, launch Office365, and are automagically authenticated with their O365 license with the credentials they've logged into the computer with.

  6. Make the message list clearer

    All the messages on the list look the same; new emails should be in bold and emails should be colored by category as they were in 2011. As it is now, different messages are not easily visually differentiated.

  7. Remove the ⌘<Return> shortcut for sending an email

    It's simple: when typing is quite easy to accidentally hit ⌘<Return> which now acts as a shortcut for sending an email. This is highly annoying as you end up unintentionally sending an email before you finished it.

  9. autocorrect

    Autocorrect does not take advantage of MacOS Text Replacement: Should be able to import text replacement from MacOS or automatically be added

  12. add the shortcut Command + return to save and close an open appointment

    an optimal shortcut that mirrors a similar action of sending an email. This shortcut was present in Outlook for Mac 2011.

  13. Hide/Delete Groups Folder in Outlook

    Hello.
    Will you solve this in future? https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/msoffice_outlook/hidedelete-groups-folder-in-outlook/725fc11a-841f-4702-9815-886ad8432aae

    It's great that Microsoft wants to add new features to Outlook, and I'm sure many will get a lot of use out of Groups, but as a rule any new feature that impacts a display (such as the folder pane) should be able to be disabled, or at a minimum, hidden.

    Please, if you giv the users new feature, giv them choice to use or not.
    Thank you

  14. Allow BCC on meeting invites

    Allow BCC on meeting invites (adding recipients as resources does not make the invitee list invisible to other invitees). Needed for OOO notifications.

  16. All optional removal "Online Meeting" button

    We use another online meeting solution instead of Skype, but still use Skype for IM. It would be nice to be able to remove the "Online Meeting" button to prevent users from adding a Skype meeting.

  17. Automatically add "Delegate" mailboxes

    In Outlook for PC, if I am added as a delegate in Office 365 to someone's account, that mailbox and calendar AUTOMATICALLY populates into my outlook. On mac, not only do i have to manually add them, but if the user is a PAST employee that i am managing the account for a period of time, I have to leave them visible in the GAL in order to add them as a delegate. On outlook for PC, past employees can be shared and hidden from the GAL but still appear in outlook.
