  2. Online Archive Access in Outlook for Mac

    There doesn't appear to be any access to the Online Archive area using the new Mail client. This will be a problem for me and my users that make use of this storage area.

  5. Custom Category Colors

    I would like the ability to create custom Category colors (this used to be an option) instead of being confined to the set 20. I would also like the ability for these custom colors to sync to my account and across all of my devices. I rely on color-coding categories to be able to tell at a glance what topic my calendar meetings are for and I either run out of colors or would prefer a custom one. Thanks!

  6. In the new UI, I can no longer import .ics file to the calendar. I can do that using the old GUI.

    It would be nice to have an option to import .ics file directly to the calendar as in the previous version.

  7. Make the Scheduling Assistant available for all meetings, not just ones with large number of attendees

    I want the option to look at every attendee's calendar availability myself and select a time. Right now I only get this option if I have a meeting with a large number of attendees and/or and the system can't find a time that works itself. Let us access Scheduling Assistant whenever we want.

  8. Add Vertical Scrolling for Calendar Navigation

    Enable vertical scrolling to navigate through the Calendar through weeks, months and years instead of having to click the left and right arrow at the top of the screen to incrementally move one month at a time.

    port the address book from the windows outlook client to the macOS version.

  11. WebEx Integration

    The new Outlook for Mac (The one with preview of upcoming UI and "Enhancements") does not support WebEx plugin in the Meeting toolbar. It worked fine prior to upgrading/switching. After switching to the "New Outlook", the button is missing from the toolbar.

    When I select to "Get Add-Ins...", from the Ribbon/Customize Toolbar ellipsis menu, I can find the "Cisco Webex Meetings Scheduler" add-in but it will not install. I get an error message saying "Sorry, we can't complete this operation right now. Please try again later."

  12. Junk block sender

    Junk Mail/Block Sender

    Using a MAC:

    The function that allows to block senders is no longer available. I've also been receiving an abundant amount of SPAM lately since switching over to the "new look".

  13. Keep UI consistent

    The compose email window outside of the main window looks like the old UI. I love the look of the new UI so please keep it consistent when the compose email window is a separate window. Thanks

  16. Implement Quick Steps

    The Windows version has Quick Steps, which I rely on to quickly process my emails. It would be great to have them in Outlook for Mac.

  18. show contact organization

    When using the "New Outlook" layout on a Mac and I view a contact, I am not able to see the contact's organization like I did in the 'old' layout. There are times that I want to know who a persons manager is and now I can't do that :-(

  19. Add format painter to in-window email composer

    Can you please add the format painter to the in-window email composer. I use it all the time to fix formatting on text copied in from other sources, and it is a pain to have to pop out the window just to access that function

  20. Add Full OneNote Integration

    I thought Addins (https://outlook.uservoice.com/forums/924856-the-new-outlook-for-mac/suggestions/38972491-support-for-o365-add-ins) were going to do this, but I don't see an option in the customize toolbar for OneNote integration. I would like to be able to send both emails and meeting notes from outlook to Onenote like I can in both the iOS and the Outlook for Mac products!
