  2. Ability to Add Events in My Day

    In the new My Day view if you could right click to add events and have the mini-event modal show up that would almost completely eliminate the need to go into the regular Calendar for some of your users.

  3. Calendar layout wasteful

    Calendar has a lot of whitespace around regions, making the core event presentation far more squished than it needs to be. In the left column I can view a month mini calendar and a list of calendars, but there seems to be very little sizing flexibility. If I view two months atop, the list at the bottom becomes almost useless. The window title bar is now over crowded with controls and search box--finding a place to grab and relocate it or make it foreground with the mouse is no longer a simple task. There is no simple go to date…

  5. 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.

  6. Reoccurring appointments

    Under the custom options for reoccurring appointments, it would be nice to see hourly as an option. I have multiple tasks that need to be completed every 6 hours, and others more frequently. Currently, I have to create multiple appointments per day and set them for a daily reoccurrence. It would be nice to only make 1 appointment and set it for x hours reoccurrence.

  10. 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.

  11. Add a tool bar to the calendar view in the new Outlook for Mac UI.

    On the new Calendar UI within Outlook for Mac add toolbar options (can still be simplified) but i cant seem to add a calendar category on the fly for instance within the calendar view, i need to open up each meeting - same goes for adding "show as"

  12. Bring back hilighting all emails with same subject when not using conversation view

    Outlook for MAC

    In several versions back, I requested to bring back highlighting emails that contain same subject when not using conversation view. It got several supporting comments, but eventually got a response of something like, not in the direction we wish to go.

  13. Add Skype integration. Where did it go?

    Skype integration into the meeting creation tab was one-click and easy to do.

  14. Update the search function.

    Please update the search function and add the "search all mailboxes" function again. Search should also be automatic, no enter-hitting.

  15. Allow for creation of smart mailboxes in new Outlook for mac.

    "New Outlook" appears to not have smart folders. I have critical uses for this.

  16. send delay to every message

    In Outlook for Windows I can add a send delay to every message as a rule. I like doing this because it gives me an extra minute or more to change my mind about an email after clicking 'Send'.

    The web version offers a 10-second delay, which is even better than nothing.

  17. 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. A more compact layout

    Currently, there seems to be a lot of 'dead' space in the new UI. While I like the more modern look, it should be possible to makt certain UI elements a bit more compact, much like is possible on Outlook for Windows...

  20. 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.
