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

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

  5. Keep selected inbox view

    I never work in the "all mail" view in Inbox, but mostly the "unread" or "flaged". Everytime I move "in and out" of the inbox, the view is reset and I have to select the view again. Please make sure the "setting" for the view is keept.

  6. Accidentally deleting mails when selecting to read

    When 'Reading Pane' is selected as below, 'Delete', 'Archive', 'Flag' buttons are too close to the mail, which leads to accidentally deleting mail when clicking to read. Provide an option for the user to change the position of these attributes or move them to the far left of the mailbox

  8. Conversation view - change in behavior

    In conversation view, when there are multiple unread mails, when tried to view, it goes by default to the latest one. Earlier it used to go to the first unread mail in that conversation

  9. Touch Bar controls in Calendar

    Currently, the Touch Bar controls in Calendar allow you to switch between the Day, Work Week, Week and Month views. It would be very useful to also have a way to navigate between periods (like the arrows that are to the left of the day/week/month above the calendar) in the Touch Bar.

  10. Show more all day events on a day

    We have a shared Mailbox where we use the calendar to show when people on a team are off (Members of the team put an all day calendar entry on a day where they work from home, are sick or are off) . If I’m using a Windows machine I have the ability to scroll through the all day events in Outlook. But on Outlook for Mac I can only see a maximum 15 all day entries - there is no option to scroll any more (attachment_2). On the shared calendar there are 18 all-day events listed but only 15…

  11. Include a Tasks pane or Tab, similar to the Windows version of Outlook.

    I sorely miss the Tasks pane from the Windows version of Outlook. This was such a messy, but useful feature that helped me organize projects and keep track of important emails. I would love to have this feature back on the Mac version. Having to switch between a Tasks tab (like Calendar) is not the same and less useful as I fall into the Out of Sight, Out of Mind trap.

  13. Folder pane forgets width setting

    In the mail view the folders on left does not remember the width setting and needs constant resizing to see the folders

  14. 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.

  15. Fix replies from search lists

    When search results appear, if you right click and reply or reply all, the new message pane does not pop open or over, but the draft gets created and added to your drafts folder. Each time you try to click reply, it adds a new draft. So impossible to reply to a message that you have searched for.

  16. Send Availability

    The "Send Availablity" feature is iOS is one of the most useful features I've ever used. I actually switch away from a desktop interface to the mobile version of Outlook just to use that feature. It is that great! It would be AWESOME if the Outlook for Mac team could bring that feature to the Mac Desktop client.

    Encouragement... 🤛🏼

  17. Unread Emails Filter Button in Toolbar

    I am loving the new look of Outlook for Mac. I think it's a long-overdue overhaul to the interface. The team has done a great job and I'm getting used to the new interface. One small ask for the development team...

    Please add a button/option to the toolbar (along with reply, reply all, forward, forward as attachment... etc.) that will allow email to be filtered to Unread Emails only. That would be a huge help. I LOVE that feature in Outlook for iOS.
