  1. Reduce font size in the Inbox view

    The font size is too large proportionally to all other fonts in the UI.

    Adjusting the existing font size setting applies globally and does not address the proportion issue, making the other UI fonts (which are great at the default size) too small.

    Coupled with the inability to hide message preview text, the current size notably limits the # of items that can be viewed.

    Thanks for your consideration.

  2. List conditions for displaying the "New Outloook" switch. I'm on 16.33 (19112700) and don't have the option.

    I'm on insiders fast, on Outlook version 16.33 (1911270) on Catalina 10.15.2, and there's no New Outlook switch, and the option isn't in "Help" either. If there conditions in which it's not available, that would have been good to know before updating to insiders fast.

  4. Pin mails on the top

    Just like on outlook.com it would be nice to be able to pin messages at the top of folders and sync whatever message you pin in outlook.com to also pin it on the app.

  5. Bring back reply to all with a meeting invite

    The old Outlook had an option to reply to a group of people with a meeting invite. This was handsome for quick meeting requests and is missing in the new outlook.

  8. 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

  9. New message, meeting should be in toolbar like in web client

    New message, meeting should be in toolbar like in web client (these things should really be consistent).. it's much better to put all operation in the toolbar instead of randomly splitting this one off and segregating it by itself in the blue area... took me 5-10mins to find it 🙁

  10. Add feature already in Windows (Previous/Next)

    Mirror Windows version function related to "After moving or deleting an open item" and the option to return, open previous or next. Also, add previous/next buttons to email windows.

  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,…

  17. Allow showing 2 months in My Day

    Please consider making the number of months in My Day configurable so I can show 2 months at once.

    Currently, My Day only shows one calendar month. This is annoying, especially during the last week of a month when you might want to check appointments for the following week. Having the option to see further in the future without switching to the calendar view would be helpful.

  18. 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…

  20. Out of Office Auto-Replay

    Out of Office Auto-Reply is a must for business users. I love the new look and am wanting to use the new Outlook, but until the auto-reply feature is available, I can't use it.
