  1. Show My Last Reply in Conversation Thread

    Currently if you are using conversation threads, the originators last reply does not show unless you click show my reply. And when you click Show, it is only temporary and opens in a separate Window. When the recipient replies, then of course my last rely, to which they are responding now shows. It would be better if all replies showed.

  2. Create new email/calendar/etc. from app icon in dock

    PO merged this idea incorrectly with https://outlook.uservoice.com/forums/924856-the-new-outlook-for-mac/suggestions/39017635-on-the-mail-window-restore-create-meeting-reques
    PLEASE keep it separate as it's a very different ask.

    Edge and many other apps have the ability to create a new window, etc. from the app context menu
    Skype has the ability to "Meet now" from the app context menu.

    I would love to be able to "Create a new Email/Meeting/Appointment/etc." from the app context menu.
    I would ask that the Outlook PO look at the File > New menu and determine what items should be added.

    By app context menu, I mean in the Dock, if you right click on Outlook's…

  3. while the general send / fwd / archive / buttons in four different places? Spotting the right button and mouse navigation is tricky

    In mail review / respond, its getting a bit tricky to find the right buttons to use. FWD in the mail, Send at the bottom of the screen, [Send] [Forward] above the mail or open as a full mail item to choose. Plus having the old style mail, cal, tasks, people buttons at the bottom left means that you become a mouse-button-hunter. Be great it you went to one place IN the email to react / action not all four corners of the screen. Thanks

  4. Be able to Resize email composer window when Outlook in fullscreen mode

    You need to ve able to Resize email composer window when Outlook in fullscreen mode. Today it is to small when working on a smaller macbook, and not very useful in fullscreen mode. Should be able to make it nearly or as large as outlook it self in full screen, or be able to pop it up in another full screen view.

  5. Fix the issue so that hyperlinks in emails work again in Mac 16.38 to Chrome.

    Basically you cannot click on Hyperlinks in emails and they automatically open in Chrome like they used to. Sooooo Annoying. This happened when I updated to 16.38 Mac version.

  6. Sent Messages in Conversation within Folders

    While Sent Messages are shown in conversation history in the general inbox, the feature does not seem to be working when conversations are moved to folders. I think the problem could be that only messages within the same folder are included in the conversation.

    Best regards,
    Chris

  7. Delete group messages

    I should be able to delete messages that are in a group mailbox without having to go to the web client.

  10. Switch between reply and reply all after starting composition.

    Pressing Reply or Reply All is a one way street, you can't change your mind after the fact with out deleting the entire message and starting again. A button that lets you toggle between reply and reply all after you have started composing your reply would be most helpful.

  12. Provide More Options to Customize Toolbars

    I LOVE the new customizable toolbars, I've been hoping for this feature since 2009, when I started using Outlook for Mac primarily.

    However, I wish the toolbars had more additional toolbar options.

    For example, the toolbar in the calendar view is limited to only "New Event".

    Also, would love to see more toolbar options across the board, such as a "Resend" and "View Source" toolbar icon in Mail view.

    Thanks!

  13. URL's in location field in calendar

    I cannot enter a URL in the location field of the new calendar app in outlook. It only lets me pick from preselected rooms. If I enter a URL, it appears RED and blanks out before I send the invite.

  14. I suggest you allow customising the ribbon bar

    On the Windows version, I set up the Outlook ribbon bar(s) so they cover all process steps (left to right) for triaging or sending an email. This improves my productivity because it reduces the number of 'clicks'. Quick steps are a really important part of this. Please can you consider customisation of the ribbon bar / menu in this way.

  16. Enable the Zoom plugin functionality while using the "new outlook"

    If I revert back to the old original outlook on my mac, i have the zoom plugin button and functionality, but the "new outlook" does not. Come on, the new one is great but this is a deal breaker!

  18. Add keyboard shortcut for snooze.

    Add keyboard shortcuts for snooze. Adding via MacOS settings only works for custom date, but does not work for today, tomorrow, next week, etc.

  19. Add function to create new folder when moving e-mail

    When moving an E-Mail to a folder, it would be great if there was the option of creating a new folder directly from the move dialog. As it is now, you first need to create the folder and then move the E-Mail afterwards. This function already exists in the Windows version of Outlook

  20. The trash can icon on the message line can cause lost emails

    I've noticed some of my emails were disappearing when I clicked on them. I found out I would by chance quickly click where the trash can icon was and delete the email. Can that somehow be changed, removed from that location?
