    I like the ability to contact and interact with support directly through the product. But the implementation is very basic. Some features that I think would be worth considering:
    1) Better notification when support responds to requests. It's nearly invisible and easy to overlook.
    2) A better editing experience for support entry. A one-line text box that sort of auto-expands is limiting. Perhaps a drag to expand feature or a more complete editing mode similar to MS Teams chat/conversation entry
    3) How about the ability to have multiple support requests going, complete with history and numbering
    4) Maybe a better solution or extra feature would be to allow initiating requests from the product and then moving to or supplementing with traditional email support process.

    It's very easy to miss responses from support in Outlook Desktop Mac. Perhaps making the notification bold or in a bright, contrasting color (or both) would help.

    GAL refresh is a feature that's available in Outlook Desktop for Windows. It is long overdue on the Mac. It makes no sense for an organization to tell its users they have to wait 24 hours to be able to use new or updated addresses in the GAL.
    I am surprised that GAL syncing isn't done in "real time".

    Same experience but different theme for me. I'm using a standard theme where the banner/bar is white. The gear icon and it's background are not visible until mouseover which makes it somewhat visible.
    Surprising this could get past QA.

    So hard to believe this is still an issue.
    I was led to believe that the dev team had to at least take a look at 100 votes.
    This is a really straightforward usability issue that makes one wonder if usability testing is taking place.
    Calendaring and Contacts are fundamental building blocks of all businesses and yet we still find ourselves with crazy bugs and limitations.
    Please put this on the priority list.
