  1. Option to remove "Top Results" from search....

    So far hasn't done anything useful to my search results, and is just extra clutter

  2. Unified inbox as default launching view

    We know that the unified inbox is coming back but it's really important that we can set it as the default view when Outlook in launching.

    This feature is really simple but very important. It was missing from the last Outlook on Mac.

    Please. Add it.

  4. Implement web's reading pane

    Outlook for Web condenses the conversation nicely; expanding only the most recent message and giving a preview of the others. You can then expand each previous message separately if you need more context.

    I LOVE the Outlook web app and want it as a native macOS app.

  6. Add option to remove email date groups in inbox

    I keep a pretty clean inbox, and while I like the overall design of thew new Outlook's Inbox area a lot of screen space is wasted to these "This week", "Last week", etc" identifiers that are just not needed.

    Please let me turn them off, like you could in old Outlook (via unchecking "Show in Groups" setting).

  7. Include archive, delete, and flag buttons in mail notifications

    When the notification window is displayed for new incoming email, please include buttons to quickly archive, delete, or flag the new incoming email without having to go to the main outlook window. It would be nice to be able to quickly delete incoming email if we don't want to read it, right from the notification display.

  8. 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!

  9. 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.

  10. Create an option to duplicate calendar events

    This has long been a feature of 3rd party apps like Fantastical and I don't understand why Outlook doesn't have it yet. It's such a no-brainer and so handy. Right-click an event | Duplicate.

  12. Fix quick creating new event in Calendar

    When clicking button for 'New Event' upper left corner, all event features are available, and default settings from Preferences are followed. However if you double click on a time in the calendar to create a new event, the options are limited (unable to set status as 'Tentative', unable to set Reminder which is stuck at 15 minutes by default--not respecting the Preferences.

  14. Remember Outlook window position

    Each time when I start Outlook it opens on the main screen with a random size window. Ideally, I would love to see it in the exact same location and size as it was before I quit it e.g. fullscreen on the second monitor.
    Thank you.

  15. Ability to use an alias on Gmail

    Was previously able to use an alias on a Gmail account, no longer able to do that on the new Outlook. Love it but this was an important feature. Can you restore?

  17. Search Sent folder for "To:" addresses, not "From:"

    When I'm searching sent mail, I NEVER need to search on the From: message, and am ALWAYS looking for a message I sent to someone. I'm sure there are exceptions to that for some people and accounts, but in general, that would be the intelligent field to be searching for when in the Sent folder.

  18. Allow editing calendar invites without sending

    In Outlook on Windows I can edit a calendar invite after receiving it or having the meeting, but cannot do this in Outlook on Mac.

    I use my calendar to record my time as actually used. So two scenrios supported on Outlook for Windows are not in Outlook for Mac:
    1. I receive an invite, and the meeting went longer than scheduled. I would like to adjust the meeting at a later point to reflect the additional time, but cannot do that without sending a response to the person who created the invite. I do not want to do that,…
