  2. Calendar groups

    Allow shared calendars to be grouped together for easy enable/disable. For instance have a group of people called "HR" and with one checkbox I could enable or disable their calendars in my view. Currently I have to do this individually with each member of the group which is a pain.

  3. add filter for mail box folders

    Add a search / filter for the folders pane. As someone who utilises lots of different folders to file away email correspondence I want to be able to search for a folder say while I'm in the inbox to move an email into. Example being I'm in my inbox I want to move the email I've read to an appropriate folder, I now have to scroll down and find it rather than just refine what is being displayed in that folder view. The filtered results should show the nested path of the folder as for example there might be a…

  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.

  7. Modify the ribbon in compose mode

    Please, please let me customize the ribbon in compose view. When "switch background" got added, it pushed "Signatures" off the screen in full-screen mode. Now it's a five-click process to add a single signature and send a message (right arrow, signature, specific signature, left-arrow, send) versus three (signatures, specific, send).

  8. really expand to full-screen, when outlook window is set as a separate space.

    Please expand to full screen when the outlook window is set to expanded mode and set as a operate space. Currently the window leaves a thick empty area at the bottom ( probably the status bar used to sit here previously )

  9. Use grouped-by headers for actions

    Allow the user to grab the grouped-by headers in the list ex: "Last Week" or "Last Month" and drag that entire group to a folder or execute a context menu action like Outlook for Windows.

  10. quote reply with > chevron indent (aka bottom-reply support)

    In many forums (including standards and open source) bottom reply is preferred where the previous message is indented with chevrons (>). However Outlook for Mac forces top reply. This makes it incompatible with the community standards of the web.

    Outlook should support an option (like it does for attribution at the top of the email) that enables quoted reply for html or text messages. Specifically, switching from html to text message should change the quoting from the blue bar to the chevrons automatically.

  11. 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.

  14. I suggest more care is taken to capture as-is settings

    Just taken the new look Outlook for Mac; good show but did not carry over all my mailboxes; and rolled favourite folders back several weeks - frustrating.

  15. Support tags

    Outlook could use tagging. Multiple tags per email would be ideal, this would help with searching and having smart searches based on tags.

  17. Sync Status

    I am very happy that the message index now shows messages from other folders like Outlook for Windows. However, some of my messages do not show the entire thread until I visit the other folder. I assume, based on the delay of showing the messages in the other folder, that this is a synchronization issue. I use Tools -> Sync or the toolbar button, see the popup indicating sync'ing is happening, but this doesn't seem to really be sync'ing everything.

    Perhaps the new outlook isn't syncing as much as "Cached Exchange Mode" with All email selected? If so, then this…
