I am very interested in the new calendar event card. I have the latest Outlook for Mac installed (16.12 (180226)) but the new feature doesn't seem to be there. I see where it says "requires activation via  Office 365 subscription". How do I activate this feature?

 

As to additional features, I would really like a daily view of my calendar added to the inbox view like my Windows counterparts have for their Outlook versions.

 

Thanks, Mike Lewis

I have the same question as Mike. When I look at the "About Outlook" screen it states "License: Retail License". This product was installed before we got Office 365. Can I change from Retail License to Office 365 subscription without having to uninstall and re-install?

Here are the steps on removing your existing License:
1. Make sure to quit Outlook and all other Office 365 applications.
2. Go to https://github.com/pbowden-msft/Unlicense
3. Click “Download or clone” button on the upper middle right part.
4. Click “Download” ZIP and make sure to save the file to “Downloads” folder.
5. Double click “Unlicense-master.zip” to extract it.
6. Open “Terminal” App
7. Enter: cd Downloads/Unlicense-master
8. Enter: ./Unlicense --All
9. Wait for the confirmation that it has been successfully deactivated/removed then open Outlook app and login your office 365 account to activate it.
