  3. Fix ICS importing in "New Outlook"

    I attempted to import an ICS file in New Outlook. I get a view of the calendar item, but no way to "save" it to my calendar. Also, if i "edit" the calendar item, I then get a "Save" button but saving the item doesn't actually reflect on the calendar in "New Outlook". Had to switch back to old outlook to see the item.

  6. Support for working hours in Calendar

    Outlook on the Web and Windows reflects others working hours in the meeting scheduler. This is especially useful when working with people who are in different timezones. Outlook for Mac doesn't seem to support this. It only shows my own configured work schedule but not that of others.

  7. Make current day and time more apparent on calendar.

    The little red partial ball next to the current time is not enough indicator for the current time/day. Really would like the current day and time to stand out better so it’s easier to read at a glance. Would like the column of the current day highlighted better and the current time highlighted better.

  8. Change Calendar Layout to Match Calendar Layout in Outlook for Windows

    Change the calendar pane to appear on Mac in the same layout it does on Windows PC, where names are on the horizontal axis and times on the vertical.

    The calendar organization on Windows shows each person’s calendar name on the y axis and the times on the x axis. I still see that information on my Outlook for Mac calendar but it’s organized in a much more confusing way, with times on the y axis and blocks of color for each person’s calendar on the x axis. Everything is squished together and it's very hard to tell whose schedule…

  9. changing a url in location (bug)

    When I create a meeting I can add a URL as the location. If I'm editing a meeting and change the URL it will be removed when I try to save. I think this was possible before 16.36 (20032418).

  10. Allow editing alarms in drop down menu

    When in either calendar or list mode, you should be able to edit the alarm setting in the drop down menu. Currrently, you have to double click to open the calendar item, adjust the alarm setting in the pop-up box, and then close it. Three clicks where 1 would be much better

  11. Teams option for meetings

    Currently it seems that only O365 customers can see a Teams toggle in Outlook for Mac while every customer on Windows can see that toggle.
    Please enable the option to use Teams for a meeting in the Outlook calendar for all customers (on-premise etc.) on Mac (tested with "New Outlook for Mac 16.39 insider build and Teams 1.3.00.9271).

  12. End meetings early (25m / 50m)

    Add support to end appointments & meetings early (25m / 50m) so you have time to prepare for the next meeting. Already supported by Outlook for Windows: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/schedule-a-meeting-with-other-people-5c9877bc-ab91-4a7c-99fb-b0b68d7ea94f

  14. Cannot drag calendar event from one main window to another

    Ideally, you need to be able to drag from one calendar to another, possibly by opening another main window with calendar view and then drag from one to the other. Works in Outlook for windows.

  15. Show the calendars of your Office colleagues

    Show the calendars of your Office colleagues without forcing you to request to share dozens of calendars. And let people sort the order based on their priorities, rather than forcing default to alphabetical. These seem to me utterly basic functions required to work in an organization.

  17. Let us import Google Calenders without account creation

    My main email address is also used for a Google account, so I can't add that Google account (it always adds my mail account).

    Therefore it would be great if I could import the calendar from that Google account, otherwise, the "My day" feature is pretty much useless (as it doesn't show all my events).

  20. Let me set a default location - usually a meeting URL

    Want to set the location to my zoom meeting URL because that is what I use all the time.
