  1. conversation settings sent

    Please give us the option to turn off seeing Sent emails in conversation view. I can't stand seeing sent emails in a conversation view. If I want to find a sent email, I'll go to Sent Folder.

  2. The new outlook format doesn't give you the option to move an email to a local folder

    You can no longer move Gmail mails to local folders (which was possible with the old version). The only folders that show up in the "Move->Choose Folder.." option are ones that are created within gmail.

    If you wanted to create a folder within Gmail you can't - that option is greyed out.

  3. My Day Pref - Show/Hide Location row

    It would be nice if this view could be changed by the user. For example at the moment mine shows the event time, the duration, the event name and the location. The location shows the address which takes up 4 lines of type. While this is nice to have and is neatly laid out, my prference would be to toggle the location off with a nearby button or dropdown with toggle choices, to have some choice as to what is displayed here. The trade-off benefit is having more calendar events displayed.

  5. Mail counter below for inbox or folders

    If we there could be a number of mail counter below or some place, it would be nice as I like to keep my inbox folder as clean as possible and would like to see numbers of emails left to be worked on or if they need to archived to another folder.

  7. Make links to online meetings available from the notification

    When a meeting contains a link to an online meeting (GTM, Zoom, etc), display the link in the notification so the event doesn't have to be opened to join the meeting. I'd rather the notification just be native, but if not at least there's a reason to not use MacOS's notification system

  8. 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.

  9. Give both mark as read and mark as unread option when multiple emails are selected

    When selecting multiple emails with varying read/unread statuses, only one option (mark as read/mark as unread) is available.

    I'd like to have both options in the context menu.

  10. Stop changing the search default to "Current Mailbox"

    When trying to sort through my mailbox I often rely on searching for emails of a certain type within the current folder. There are times where this is needs to be done multiple times. Having the Search to continually go back to "Current Mailbox" even after changing to "Current Folder" is very annoying.

  11. Show the folder name of the note found in a search

    I want to store a yearly tax receipt in a folder with the previous yearly tax receipt, but I do not remember the name of the folder. A search of keywords finds the current and the old document but it does not tell me where the older document is stored. With nearly 200 folders, some of which are obvious where NOT to look, I still have to search the remaining folders for last year's tax receipt.

  13. 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,…

  16. Support for Online Archive policies

    When using Online Archiving it would be useful to have access to the archive policies when right-clicking a folder or email.

    In the 'old' Outlook for Mac client this feature was never supported but it is available in Outlook on the Web today.

  19. Filter Calendar by Category

    My calendar is typically VERY full with overlapping things. I use categories to keep it all straight. PLEASE add the ability to view my calendar one category at a time (the checkboxes on the left-side under the calendar name). PLEASE!
