  1. I would like to see more CLI in the AutoUpdate for the Macintoshes.

    As an enterprise admin, managing 1000+ Mac users, I would like to be able to use more CLI. I can now set the preferences to automatic download with a mass CL, but would like to send out a script that will kickstart the Autoupdate, if needed.

    • feature of converting 24-hour format to 12-hour format in appointment setting

      When user input 24-hour format time (ex. 15:30), It does not change to 12-hour time (ex. 3:30 PM) in calendar.
      But It changes to “1”
      In windows version outlook, “15:30” changes to “3:30 PM” automatically.

      It is bug !!

          • Restore the Check Names button with IMAP/LDAP Directory Services

            Since the Mac Outlook 15.17 version was released, the Check Names button is no longer available with IMAP/LDAP Directory Service email accounts. Every subsequent update through the current 15.22.0 (160506) has the same problem. This Check Names button is grayed-out and unavailable for name resolution against an LDAP DS. The keyboard command Ctrl+Cmd+C also does not work. Check Names appears to only be available with Exchange accounts now.

            This issue has not been resolved from versions 15.17 through 15.33 (170315) and affects all my business clients on Mac.

            • Allow pausing incoming messages

              Sometimes when working I don't want to be interupted everytime a new message comes in-I need to hold off on receiving mail, though I need to stay online to plan, review calendars, older emails etc (so Work Offline" isn't an option). Push is great when you want to be in constant contact, but it doesn't help you focus. I would like to have a Mail Snooze button that would let me choose to not receive new email for 15/30/1hr/8hr etc. Let me work uninterrupted.

                • 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

                  • Inboxes are task lists - enable scheduling & reordering of email

                    Just like in Outlook for iOS, I'd like to be able to Schedule email so that a message disappears to a separate folder, reappearing in my inbox at the time configured. This is most likely to be contingent on using Exchange Online.

                    One of the best, complimentary features in Dropbox's 'Inbox' was dragging email to re-order - just like tasks in To Do or Wunderlist. This made an inbox work just like a Task List.

                    A great combination of features.

                      • Stop automatic display of an email in Reading Pane

                        Currently when launching Outlook or clicking an email folder to view its contents, Outlook automatically selects the first email in the list and displays its contents in the Reading Pane. The contents of an email SHOULD NOT be displayed in the Reading Pane until an email is clicked on by the user!!!! Entourage 2004/2008 and Outlook 2011 did not do this!!!!

                        • Make display of all-day events in daily or weekly view more flexible

                          It seems that the display area for viewing of all-day events in the daily or weekly view is fixed in (maximum?) size. This leads to the problem that on my computer the maximum number of all-day events is limited to 14. In case this number is exceeded, I simply cannot view all events but only 14 of them. The use case is parallel view of several calendars.

                          I propose to make this area scrollable and/or allow to change its size.

                            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!

                            • add an option to choose the timezone in outlook calander manually

                              The timezone in calendar is set as UTC by default, which can not be changed. I suggest that you can manuelly choose the timezone you want to use in Outlook calendar. This prevents the annoying messages of different time zones in outlook.

                                    • Stop opening all previously added shared calendars when I add one new shared calendar

                                      When I add a new shared calendar, Outlook for Mac automatically selects every other shared calendar I have previously opened (by ticking all their boxes) thus causing Outlook to try to load all those calendars at once, and thus stalling for many minutes. Ironically the new calendar being added is the only one to not be ticked. I assume this is a bug not the intended mode of operation.

                                        • Print search folder similar to windows version, Example Print the list of Follow up headers not individual emails.

                                          Allow to print the mail search folder, this functionality is standard in windows version. For example: To print list of follow up mail items and not the entire email, only the list of items.
