        @Jeffrey Kalvass : I understand you might suggest to submit feature requests on the relevant uservoice pages. However, it is my experience that e.g. the corresponding pages for OneNote rarely, if ever, receive feedback from the development teams. This in spite of the fact that there are some glaring issues with that product such as e.g. the inability to print notes properly:

        This issue is quite fundamental to to UX of the application and yet it has remained broken for literally years now (2014).

        Another issue with OneNote (specifically on iOS) is the inability to easily open on premises SP hosted notebooks.

        I really like what MS is doing with their cross platform apps but if initiatives such as the feedback pages are set up, it creates a certain expectation with users and users who provide feedback might get frustrated if no response comes on top rated suggestions, even after years.

        It might be good to have a thorough look at this with the development team.

    How do I customize the TouchBar on mac OS?


    1. Thanks for the comment, seb. Currently, there’s no ability to customize the Touch Bar in Outlook (or any of the other Office apps that support Touch Bar). Please vote for feature requests on our UserVoice site.

    So when will we have actually functional printing in OneNote for macOS?

    Suggested on UserVoice in 2014 😉

    Pencil notes still print very badly.

    I am using the latest release of Outlook (15.35) and in my case creating events or tasks by dragging and dropping email to the calendar or task view does not work. What might be the cause?

    1. Thanks for your comment, Jacek. This feature requires activation via Office 365 Subscription. Check your activation in the Outlook > About Outlook dialog. If you do have O365 activation, then please message us via Help > Contact Support for more help.

    The return of drag/drop Email To Calendar isn’t fully restored to the previous convenience. Formerly, if I display the calendar sidebar (not sure that’s the proper name) I could drop the email directly onto a date and the email would begin an appointment on that date. As it is currently implement, I can only drop onto a calendar icon at the bottom and begin an appointment that is dated today. Please restore this very useful old feature in its entirety.
