  3. preview

    When a Word document attachment is previewed, the window can be resized, but this doesn't change the contained Word frame size. The text within the Word frame can be zoomed, but this changes neither the frame nor the Window size. A zoomed document must therefore be scrolled to see all text. Please allow the window resize to also change the size of the contained Word frame (and therefore change the zoom).

  5. search with wildcard in query

    As a consumer I'd like to be able to search using a wildcard in my query such as 'from:*@microsoft.com' and have search return all mails that are from an email address with that domain name.

  6. 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:

  8. window frames

    Two related things...
    1- use different color header bar and window outlines for different applications and user preferences- excel is green, pPT orange, but outlook and word are blue- hard to find on cluttered desktop
    2-Allow user to add a 'grab bar' anywhere on window frame to drag that window. new outlook search bar reduces the space i have to 'grab' the window

  9. Allow me to resize My Day to be narrower (meaning smaller/no margins)

    My Day is useful but takes up too much space away from the reading pane and message list. Please allow me to resize My Day so that its left and right margins are tiny or non-existent. Currently the mandatory large margins take up about 4% of the total horizontal real estate of Outlook, and 22% of My Day. Instead of paying a 4% real estate tax on empty space, I'd prefer to make my reading pane 7%-10% wider which would mean less scrolling and improved productivity.

    It's OK if the default margins are big like today, but if I opt…

  13. Use the "What's New" feature

    Trying the new outlook for Mac is great, yet I don't know what new features have been added when updates occur. There is already a "what's new" item in the Help menu, yet it never says anything.

  14. Font dialog font misaligned

    The name of the Font in the default font dialog is misaligned. Looks janky.

  16. Options to tailor the overview/layout

    The new layout is nice looking and works well on large screens but not on laptop screens. There should be options to tailor to make it more practical. Would be good if you could make the text smaller in each section to fit more in. Seems you can change text in the viewing window of email but not in the list of emails. Choosing compact just makes the text slightly smaller on the diary on the right but no extra info is displayed. You can hide the left folders column but when you open with the icon, but it doesn't…

  17. Update the agenda/day view status

    When the past events are hidden in the day/agenda view and there are no other events, instead of having a "No Events" message, make the message read "No more events", so that there's a reminder that there were events earlier in the day. Additionally, have a way to quickly view earlier events

  18. Reduce dead/white space, shrink fonts (or option to)

    Too much space is wasted due to spacing horizontally and vertically. Columns are too thick, fonts are too pronounced and too large and the whitespace between rows is wasteful.

    I'm using a UHD screen and it's like I have a 1366x768 laptop screen.

  19. All for the spawning of a new window with a right-click on the lower-left icon

    Just like the Windows version, right-clicking on the mail, calendar, people, tasks, and notes icons in the lower-left corner should give the option to open in a new window. Current functionality requires File --> New --> Main Window and then navigating to the desired tool.

  20. 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.
