  1. 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.

  2. Set All Accounts Inbox as Default.

    It would be great if you could set the 'All Accounts: Inbox' as the default inbox to be on when you open Outlook For Mac.

    I have many different email account inboxes, but hate having to select the 'All Inboxes' folder every time I open Outlook. This has been a common feature request that many have suggested already for the Classic Outlook, but it's never been considered so please implement this in the new Outlook for Mac and it will be PERFECT!

    Great work guys, I'm a big fan!

  3. 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

  5. Have an address book show all address lists from Exchange (like outlook for windows)

    port the address book from the windows outlook client to the macOS version.
    In a large company you need to be able to select different address lists and GAL from the exchange server

  7. sort by

    When Mail is sorted By Conversation and Sorted With Oldest On Top can you please have the oldest mail in the conversation on top as well. Currently the oldest Conversation is at the top but when you open it the oldest email in the conversation is at the bottom! Doh !

  8. Folder search should not include deleted folders

    When searching the folders to move a message into a new folder, folders that exist in the Deleted Items group should not be included.

  9. local calendars

    The new version of Outlook is very shiny, but I cannot access any local calendars, my iCloud calendars, or other ics calendars. This is really a basic feature that needs to be incorporated.

  11. Support side-by-side view of more than three calendars

    As soon as you try to view more than three calendars in side-by-side mode, it forces the view to Overlay mode. Some of our users need to be able to view 5 or more calendars in side-by-side mode.

  13. 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 :-(

  14. funny cropping on the right hand side of the screen in full screen mode

    I am on a mac, and I have had the new outlook app running everyday. if I have the app running in full screen for a while, it eventually cuts off part of the right hand side of the screen. it isn't a big deal, but i thought i would let you know.

  15. 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

  17. 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."

  19. 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!

  20. Could you please create an additional "business card" view for the contacts? A similar view existed in an older version of Outlook..

    In a former version of OUTLOOK, the PEOPLE view allowed to place all contacts in a "business card view" where one contact is next to the other.... filling the whole page... then scrolling down for searching contact details was much easier and more efficient, especially if you treat more than 1,500 contacts.
