  1. Calendar layout wasteful

    Calendar has a lot of whitespace around regions, making the core event presentation far more squished than it needs to be. In the left column I can view a month mini calendar and a list of calendars, but there seems to be very little sizing flexibility. If I view two months atop, the list at the bottom becomes almost useless. The window title bar is now over crowded with controls and search box--finding a place to grab and relocate it or make it foreground with the mouse is no longer a simple task. There is no simple go to date…

  2. 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…

  3. 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.

  6. 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. Modernize printing

    Please give printing an overhaul too.

    Kill the Page Setup menu and make the print dialog work like the default macOS print dialog where the Page Setup settings are in the print dialog.

    Perhaps correct scaling of mails could be fixed too. Mails with wide embedded images and some HTML mails, don't scale to fit the page nomatter what we do. The right edge is cut off.

    Printing the same mails from Apple Mail woks fine,

  11. I want a reply function that puts the sender in the To: field and everyone else in the CC: field

    It would be such a time saver to have a reply to function that put the sender of the original message in the To: field and everyone else the message was sent to into the CC: field. This would be such a win and so easy to do.

  12. 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.

  16. Be able to remove Office 365 Groups from Mail and Calendar

    After upgrading to the new Outlook all the Office groups have appeared in Mail and Calendar making it very long and confusing. As a group creator, I do not need to see every group I am part of in Calendar and don't need to see the emails show up in my inbox. There needs to be a way to remove them from view in outlook. Thanks

  18. Allow draft message deletion through key combination

    When writing a draft message, allow quick deletion of the draft with a keystroke, such as Cmd-Delete, instead of requiring the mouse to be used on a button at the bottom of the screen. Historically, it opened a new window which I could just close with Cmd-W.

  19. All-Day Events (multiple-days) Progress Bar in Graphic Monthly, week view with % Complete

    It would be great to create all-day, multiple day events with progress bars indicators or % complete in at least week, month and year views. Kind of shows up a status indicator and user is able to change % complete or incomplete, etc.
