Dear community, 

 

I am a Macintosh Office 365 user. And I miss the inbox sidebar from Outlook Windows in the Outlook version for Mac, where i can see the dates for the current day. Isn't there this function in outlook for mac available? If not, is there possibly an add-in for this from another provider?

Thanks for feedback.

Hi CHeydorn,

 

Thanks for raising this. 

 

At present, it is not possible to view calendars in/next to the reading pane in Outlook for Mac

 

https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Customize-views-in-Outlook-for-Mac-257d7104-5c90-4ee3-bad2-...

 

There are several user voices open to have it added. These are two examples

https://outlook.uservoice.com/forums/293343-outlook-for-mac/suggestions/20614885-please-add-calendar...

 

I would recommend voting and driving as many people as possible to them in order to get Microsoft's attention on them. Unfortunately, AFAIK there is no third party add-ons which do this so it will be a case of waiting for Microsoft and having to switch into the calendar view for the foreseeable future.

 

I hope that I answered your question. If I have, please like the post and set it as the solution. I look forward to answering more of your questions in the future.

 

Best, Chris

Hi Christopher,

Thank you for your reply. I voted for the feature and hope MS will implement it soon.

Kind regards,

Hi @dayna_r225

Unfortunately still the same as previously - uservoices have not been picked up yet.

@Christopher Hoard Any chance we can get these two topics combined to improve the visibility of this request and the support

Hi @Jeff_Lowe

Unfortunately, Microsoft Team manages the user requests and the site. I have seen them merge requests but it's every once in a while not on a regular basis. so there is many examples of duplicated requests on that uservoice. I would comment on the uservoices requesting that they are merged with each other. Hopefully, they will see this and merge them.

It makes total sense and combines the votes too which should push it up the agenda.

Best, Chris
