  3. Easy was to toggle Sidebar

    There is no easy way to toggle the Sidebar, when extended/open, you need to go to the view menu but once collapsed/closed. there's a nice icon to extend it again.
    This icon should always be visible to the user.

  4. new Outlook extended to other accounts

    It would be nice to be able to extend the possibility to activate the "new Outlook" also to account which are not Office 365, Outlook.com, or Google account - as for example the Exchange Onprem. is there a timeline?

  6. Improve the performance of the new Outlook for Mac

    What the Microsoft team has done with the new Outlook for Mac is really good. However, while it is good I have noticed there are some performance areas that could be improved. They fall into two areas.

    1) Window movement and resizing - When you move or resize a native Apple app such as Mail, Safari, or apps like Numbers and Pages the animation is very fluid and smooth. In the new Outlook it is much better than other Microsoft apps, however it is still jerky and not smooth. It would be good to really work on the smaller details…

  9. Add custom keyboard shortcuts

    The ability to customise or use other keyboard shortcut schemes (e.g. Gmail) on the web app makes it 2x faster to process email. Please bring it to the desktop app!

  10. Add Full OneNote Integration

    I thought Addins (https://outlook.uservoice.com/forums/924856-the-new-outlook-for-mac/suggestions/38972491-support-for-o365-add-ins) were going to do this, but I don't see an option in the customize toolbar for OneNote integration. I would like to be able to send both emails and meeting notes from outlook to Onenote like I can in both the iOS and the Outlook for Mac products!

  11. Allow contextual default search context customization

    Allow contextual default search context customization. From the inbox, I would like to search the entire mailbox. From other folders, I would like to search the current folder. This feature is available in Outlook for Windows.

  12. Make the my day tab open smaller at the side of the page.

    It used to take up a small part of the right-hand side of the display, however now whenever it opens it takes up half of my display, shrinking the tab in the middle for reading emails. I never felt the need to move it around before, but now i have to drag it around to a usable size every time i open outlook. I have a screenshot if the devs want to see what I mean.

  13. Support of MAC standard keyboard shortcuts

    On MacOS you've standardised keystrokes when moving the cursor or editing text. It's very inefficient and distracting, that Outlook is not following this standard.

    One example:
    System wide you can use Ctrl-a to jump to the beginning of a line
    In Outlook it selects all text. -> Very problematic for people who can write fast.

  15. When deleting people from a meeting request or email - actually delete the one I selected

    When replying all to an email or changing the meeting participants I simply want to select and delete people I want to reduce the thread or meeting to. Sometimes this works. Other times it just deletes the last one at the end...and undo doesn't get them back. Please make this reliable - that highlighting and clicking the one to delete isn't an unpredictable behavior decided by Outlook.

  16. get the display proportions correct

    Font sizing and UI sizing is all over the place. Somone needs to spend some time on getting the look proportionally correct. Right sidebar is huge compared to the other UI elements.

  17. New message, meeting should be in toolbar like in web client

    New message, meeting should be in toolbar like in web client (these things should really be consistent).. it's much better to put all operation in the toolbar instead of randomly splitting this one off and segregating it by itself in the blue area... took me 5-10mins to find it 🙁

  20. Improve Usability by making it obvious which icon is a dropdown menu.

    Improve usability by adding a dropdown arrow to the right of all of the icons that are dropdown menus. Currently I have to click on the icon and hope it's a dropdown menu.
