  2. Unify the look of the sidebar on Mac and iOS.

    Pls apply the same design on the mac app's sidebar as it's already seen on the iOS and iPad OS app versions.
    But it's already designed and shared with the public around 2 years ago:

  4. 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.

  5. Apply Zoom function to Messages Pane and My Day

    When using Command with + or - it only zooms the reading pane text.
    Previously it zoomed all panes.
    I am using the Insider Fast Outlook for Mac currently. Version 16.33

  6. Make new outlook experience available to non-365 users

    Some of us use Office 2019 provided by our employers, but are not currently on Office 365. Would like to be able to test new features and provide feedback.. even with Fast Insider channel, the updates for the new experience are not available.

    Thanks.

  8. Mini view

    Be able to reduce the whole window to a single pane view listing last 5 emails, next 3 calendar appointments, and month calendar view. Kind of like the right calendar strip with minimized emails at the top

  9. Need more customization of column widths

    Right now all the panes are quite large. Right now I pretty much have to use Outlook full screen if I want to get the folder list, message list, message body, and My Day all on the screen without having to do a ton of scrolling left and right on the message. Not sure if this should be fixed with the ability to change the font size in the folder list, auto-resize the calendar widget as we shrink the column size, a combination of those, something.

  10. Junk Email Reading Pane

    Option to make it permanent. Why does it go away?
    It's a pain to have to enable this every time I want to look at junk messages. Should behave as the other folders.

  13. Automate My Day View

    Love the new MyDay but would be even better if in Day View an empty day auto closed the panel and visa-versa.

  14. Move key action buttons (SEND, EDIT MEETING, CANCEL, ...) to the top of the windows

    The key actions in views (like Reply to email, View meeting / event) like SEND, DISCARD, EDIT, CANCEL, ...) are placed at the bottom of the windows, not in the toolbar at the top.

    This might be good for a mobile app (closer to your thumbs), but in a desktop app:


    • They get lost: especially if you're replying to a "busy" HTML email with lots of images and colour, the buttons at the bottom can visually blend into the body of the email and be lost


    • They're not where your mouse is: typically you're adding a reply to the top…

  16. respect the OS settings for double clicking an application windows title bar

    Not so much an idea, as much as it is an expected behavior - but in my OS settings (Settings>Dock), I have selected the option to "minimize" an application window when the title bar is double clicked. macOS default behavior is to expand the application window, but I have set it to minimize.

    I would like Outlook to use the system preferences that I have set.

  17. Provide O365 password expiry reminder

    FOR Exchange Online-backed accounts - would it be possible to allow Outlook to provide the 14-day reminders prior to password expiry?

    Our Mac endpoints are not domain-bound and I get frequent requests from end users who don't spend any time in the web applications for a reminder prior to their O365 password expiry.

  18. Within the help function within outlook, the ability to create multiple reports, i.e. a "new" button in that UI would be useful.

    Currently, you can only manage one issue at a time. SO if you have an unresolved issue, you can't report a new one via the in-app reporting. This is suboptimal, especially for those on insider builds.

  19. 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. Rearrange Accounts

    I would love to be able to arrange my email accounts, like have them in the order I want instead of the automatic ordering from AtoZ.
